Under the Shield of Grace

Under the Shield of Grace

A few days ago, I was reading an older translation of the Finnish Bible and encountered something beautiful in the last verse of Psalm 5. It declares ‘You will cover them with grace like a shield’. My heart rejoiced to know that we are covered by the shield of grace. How wonderful is that? We are safe under the shield of grace! I was so thrilled about the shield of grace that I immediately wanted to share it with you….

Who Does Support You?

Who Does Support You?

When things go south who or what does support you? Having a support system is one of those things in life that make a huge difference. There are times when we need support. When we are down or weary, we need someone to lift us up. Who does support you? What kind of support system do you have? Does it work? Human support systems fail My experience is that any human support system – no matter how good and dedicated it…

Called to Love Our Neighbors

Called to Love Our Neighbors

Christian faith needs to be personal but it’s not meant to isolate us from others. We are members of the body of Christ, not our own entities. As J.B. Phillips points out “Christianity is not a religion at all but a way of life, a falling in love with God, and through him a falling in love with our fellows.” We have the privilege to be God’s beloved children. But all the love we receive from God is meant to…

Letting Go of Shoulds

Letting Go of Shoulds

Do you have a lot of “shoulds” in your life? You should this and that and every other thing. The first step of letting go of shoulds is to change your vocabulary. Replace all the “shoulds” with “it’d be great if”. It’d be great if all things worked out. But if not it’s not the end of the world. This is all great and has helped me to put less pressure on me but I have even better news for…

Do You Wash Your Hands like Pilate?

Do You Wash Your Hands like Pilate?

Today, I was contemplating on the text on Pilate washing his hands for responsibility of Jesus’ death. I understand his dilemma: the crowd wanting Jesus dead and Pilate wanting to keep his job while (he and) his wife not finding Jesus guilty. What to do? Whom to serve? And did the hand washing work? Did he get rid of his guilt or not? How about you? Do you wash your hands like Pilate? How does that work? I’m afraid washing our hands…

God Is Awesome

God Is Awesome

Do you think God is awesome? Good for you. You’ve found the beginning of wisdom. Sadly, the world these days does not think that God has anything to do with wisdom. But they don’t know anything about real life. They don’t know how awesome God is and where the blessings really come from. For whoever finds me (Wisdom) finds life And obtains favor and grace from theLord. (Proverbs 8:35, AMP) God is awesome God is not awesome just because the…

God Collects Special Things

God Collects Special Things

Do you collect something? I collect angels and cobalt blue glass. Usually we collect something that is precious to us. I love angels and feel that cobalt blue is the colour of my soul. Do you know that God collects some things too? They must be something really precious, right? You keep track of all my sorrows.     You have collected all my tears in your bottle.     You have recorded each one in your book. My enemies will retreat when I call…

Eternally Changeless God

Eternally Changeless God

Such human qualities as absent mindness or forgetfulness do not apply to God. Neither is he getting tired or weakening or ageing. God is on his top form as much today as he was when he created the world. Our God is an eternally changeless God. Hallelujah! Who has done this and carried it through,     calling forth the generations from the beginning? I, the Lord—with the first of them     and with the last—I am he. (Isaiah 41:4, NIV) Also Jesus…
