The Kingdom and the Power and the Glory

The Kingdom and the Power and the Glory

Do you value the Lord’s Prayer? It is a fixed part of worship services and also a regular part of my family’s evening devotions. Jesus himself taught it to us. It is wonderful that we can approach God as our own Father and we can address him informally, ask him whatever we need and surrender to his care. As a friend of my youth once said ‘if something has been forgotten when prayed in our words, the Lord’s Prayer will cover…

Follow the Star!

Follow the Star!

Do you ever wish to find your own star to follow? Like the wise men did? All they had to do was to follow the star. Wouldn’t that be easy? Or would we still find excuses to not to follow? When they heard the king, they went; and look, the star they had seen in the east went ahead of them until it stood over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they were filled with…

Tears in Your Eyes

Tears in Your Eyes

Do you get often tears in your eyes? How do you react to them? This quote by Frederick Buechner changed how I think of tears in my eyes. Whenever you find tears in your eyes, especially unexpected tears, it is well to pay the closest attention. They are not only telling you something about the secret of who you are, but more often than not God is speaking to you through them of the mystery of where you have come…

Graceful Change

Graceful Change

Have you asked God to show what this year is all about? How has God responded to you? Or have you asked yourself how you should change this year? How have you responded to that? Too often we try to run our lives without consulting God. We try to decide ourselves what needs to be done and then we proceed to change ourselves according to our plans. And we forget God out of the equation. When God is not part…

Readiness, Trust, Peace

Readiness, Trust, Peace

My word for 2015 has been readiness. I had no clue what to to expect of this year or what I would learn along the way. But the word intrigued me from the very beginning. It did bring some nice surprises along the way. For example, our family was lead to a huge trip to the other side of the world with a week’s notice. But mainly this study on readiness has taught me about what it means to be…

How to Seek Guidance

How to Seek Guidance

Are you impatient to wait for God’s guidance? Sometimes it seems to take forever. But I’ve learned it does not pay off to go before God. So I wait. Even when I don’t feel like it. I’ve been thinking and praying about this a lot. And learned a couple of things along the way and I will be writing about these this week. Matthew Henry has written “To wait on God is to live a life of desire towards him,…

Open and Closed Doors

Open and Closed Doors

Today’s writing prompt at Five Minute Friday is ‘door’. And my immediate association was guidance. You see, I very often pray that God would close the wrong doors and open the right ones. That’s my plea for guidance. That’s my way to submit to Jesus. That’s my way to trust in God’s plan for me. Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or…
