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 long as we pretend we are already perfect and complete, we are not learning and growing. Instead, we are merely existing. But when…

Discipleship Is an Invitation for More

Discipleship Is an Invitation for More

Discipleship doesn’t make us giddy, does it? Rather it is something we see as boring or tiresome, something we are not too keen on doing.

A Prayer of Repentance

A Prayer of Repentance

We come to you, Lord, knowing that you love us no matter of what. That’s why we dare to come to you, knowing that you will help us. We put our hearts and souls in your hand. Generous in love—God, give grace!     Huge in mercy—wipe out my bad record. Scrub away my guilt,     soak out my sins in your laundry. I know how bad I’ve been;     my sins are staring me down. (Psalm 51:1-3, MSG) We ask for grace to…
