We Are Loved by God

We Are Loved by God

God’s definition of success is pretty much the opposite of the definition we find in a dictionary. The Bible does not urge us to be successful. Instead, we are told to thrive towards faithfulness. Success God is talking about comes from staying in his love. And even this happens not by our own might but by God’s grace. We need to just remember we are loved by God. All else follows. But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your…

Is God Distant or Is He just Silent?

Is God Distant or Is He just Silent?

Many people say God feels distant. But we can’t trust our feelings in spiritual matters. But I understand if God feels distant, it’s easy to also doubt his existence. And that can cause all kinds of problems. But is there anything we could do? Is God distant or is he just silent? Sometimes God is silent and then we just need to wait. We all get dry spells along our spiritual journey, the trick is to know what to do…

No Hurry in Grace

No Hurry in Grace

Do you ever wonder if you’re getting into heaven by accident or, at least, not by your own merit but somebody else’s? Congratulations are in order if you realize it is Jesus’ merits that get you into heaven. Not yours on anybody else’s. So relax, all is done. There’s no hurry in grace. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. (Eph. 2:8-9, ESV)…

God Is Still the One

God Is Still the One

By grace, I came to faith early. And, by grace, God is still the one whom I choose. Nothing has taken his place in my life over the decades. I have experienced heartache and loss but they did not turn me away from God. Instead, they made me run into God’s arms. Everything but God was taken away from me but God was more than enough. I was healed and made whole again. And the best part of the whole thing:…

13 Reasons to Hope Always

13 Reasons to Hope Always

As long as there’s life there’s hope, they say. And sure, that’s true: nothing is over until you take your last breath. What about turning the saying around: as long as there’s hope, there’s life. Because that’s how I see it. As longs as we have hope, we are alive. Even beyond death. As long as we have Jesus, we have Life. And when we have Jesus, we do have hope always. Nothing can take it away from us. Because hope…

Little Is Much when Jesus Is in It

Little Is Much when Jesus Is in It

Sometimes we frown on our lives because they are too plain or small to our liking. Like big and bold would somehow be the only acceptable way to live. I disagree. One’s rowdiness, or even successfulness, does not necessarily produce a meaningful life. And the amount of attention you get does not tell the value of your life. Because your value comes from the Lord, not from the size of your following or popularity. The world might differ but little is…

Discover More of God

Discover More of God

Would you like to discover more of God? Good for you. My number one recommendation for you is to spend more time with God and he will reveal more of himself to you. The more time you spend with God, the more you get to know him. Getting to discover more of God firsthand is always the best approach. He wants to be found. I love all who love me.     Those who search will surely find me. (Proverbs 8:17, NLT,*)…

Set for Life – and Beyond

The world is going crazy, it seems. Also, the everyday chaos seems to get worse and worse. Yet, we do not despair. We do not get discouraged. How come? Because, we have hope.

Because of Jesus our hope is always valid. That’s why we are set for life. And beyond. God, the one…
