Graciously Imperfect

Graciously Imperfect

Completing something feels great, doesn’t it? Unfortunately, we don’t get to feel that too often. Life is full of incomplete things and unfinished business. And, what is the most annoying thing, we aren’t finished products either. If we don’t want to always be unsatisfied at some level, we need to learn to embrace our imperfectness. Because as longs as we pretend we are already perfect and complete, we are not learning and growing. Instead, we are merely existing. But when…

How to Deal with Uncertainties

How to Deal with Uncertainties

We claim to trust God yet we don’t act like it. We stress about everything when we could pray and trust God to solve all the matters that bother us. Sometimes I’m better with uncertainties, sometimes I catch myself wishing for a security cushion against the world instead of praying for God’s will and protection. What about you? How do you deal with uncertainties? I have tried all kind of tricks to deal with uncertainties but I have found only one…

Good News for Tired and Weary

Are you tired and weary? Does it feel overwhelming just to think of doing any good deeds? Do you know what? It’s time to rest. And the best place for resting is in God’s arms. Yes, we are called to do good deeds but God does not send the ones who are tired and weary out. He calls them to come and rest in him. Later on, when you’ve recovered he will send you out again. But not before you’re…

Grace from Start to Finish

Grace from Start to Finish

Sometimes we forget how big of a gift and privilege grace really is. We easily take it granted because it was given freely to us. And we forget how amazing it is that God – who is holy and almighty – does everything to make it possible for sinners to come to him. It’s grace from start to finish. It’s his idea and it’s his power that makes it happen. But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave…

Depend on God, Delight in Him

Depend on God, Delight in Him

Do you doubt God’s willingness or ability to take care of you today? Is it difficult for you to trust God to meet your needs today? It might feel a bit absurd for sure. We can’t see God. Hence, we doubt. But, let me tell you, God is real. He is alive and active and loves interacting with his children. God wants to take care of you and he wants you to delight in him. We are called to depend…

Christianity as Grace

Christianity as Grace

When you’re exhausted you don’t want to be pushed and told to try even harder. Especially when we are down we need grace. Jesus is calling to him all who are weary. He will not urge us to try harder, instead, he gives us rest. And when we have rested, he will empower us with his grace to do what we can’t do on our own. I see Christianity as grace and that’s why it’s difficult for me to understand…

The Well-Being of Your Soul

The Well-Being of Your Soul

How are you doing? And how about the well-being of your soul? We hear the first question quite often even if they are not really wanting to know how we are. The second question is something we rarely get asked which is kind of sad. But maybe it is a question we should ask ourselves. You know, the well-being of your soul is the most important thing. Without the well-being of your soul, you are not only unhappy but also…

How to Have a Love-filled Marriage

How to Have a Love-filled Marriage

My oldest goddaughter is getting married today. Even though we have never lived in the same place and sometimes even thousands of kilometers have separated us, our connection has never wavered. I’ve been praying for her since before she was born and that’s the key here: prayer. We don’t have this great connection because I would have been such an awesome godmother. It’s because of God’s grace. And that’s the secret to any steady relationship. Prayer is also the pathway to…

Less of Me, More of God

Less of Me, More of God

I’m slowly learning to celebrate my weaknesses. I would never do that without God’s grace. But one of the most beautiful facts of Christianity is that we don’t have to be strong. Because God is strong. And when we live and move in him, his strength is ours, we can be as weak as we are. That’s why I’ve learned to celebrate my weaknesses. When there’s less of me, there’s more of God. That’s what I want: less of me,…
