Delights in Impossibilities

Delights in Impossibilities

We love opportunities because they represent hope, right? And that’s why when a window of opportunity closes, we start to panic as despair starts to take hold of us. But losing an opportunity is not the end of the world. It might feel that way but it’s not true. We need to remember we have – as Billy Sunday has put it – a God who delights in impossibilities. And with him anything is possible. Jesus looked at them and…

How to Reach Your Full Potential

How to Reach Your Full Potential

Most people seem to think it’s up to them to reach their full potential. They think it’s about will-power and dedication and, yes, those are good qualities. Yet life, success, and reaching your full potential is not at the end about you. And even if you would do everything in your power to reach your full potential, you would still have not reached all you can be. Because just as some parts of our identity is hidden in Christ, so…

Alive and Active

So here we go with the words of Eugene Peterson: What a waste it would be to take these short, precious, eternity-charged years that we are given and squander them in cocktail chatter when we can be, like Jeremiah,…

Nothing Left for You to Worry About

Nothing Left for You to Worry About

There is one verse in the Bible that erases worries powerfully. It is not probably what you think. But it is powerful nonetheless. It reminds us who is in control and whose we are.

(Psalm 139:16, NIV, emphasis added) The whole psalm139 is a…

Divine Details

As you might know, I started reading through the Bible once again the first of July. I’m following a reading plan to do it in six months. This means that lately I’ve been reading a lot about God’s instructions for the construction of the tabernacle, the priestly vestments, the altar and its appurtenances, the procedure to be used to ordain the priests, and the daily sacrifices to be offered. You’d think there’s nothing for today’s reader. At least, nothing spiritual,…

God, Where Did I Go Wrong?

God, Where Did I Go Wrong?

Do you ever wonder how on earth you ended up messing up things once again? Especially when you thought you had asked God’s blessings on your projects? How did everything go wrong when you thought God was in your team? These questions used to haunt me, too. Until I laid them to the Lord and asked him to explain me where I had gone wrong. How could I have avoided these pitfalls? How could I have made wiser decisions? The…
