Grace Is Like Rain

Grace Is Like Rain

This summer has been very dry. Droughts have caused a lot of problems around the globe. No matter how advanced science becomes, we still can’t make rain. Just like the rain comes from God, so does grace. We can’t make rain, neither we can make grace or save ourselves. Also, just like it rains on everyone, so is grace meant to everyone. God is eager to pour out grace upon grace on everyone. Grace is like rain, just as pure and…

The Way of Jesus

The Way of Jesus

Oftentimes Christians seem strange. And I wholeheartedly agree. Anyone who pledges faithfulness to an invisible force must be nuts, right? But when you experience the touch of Jesus yourself, everything suddenly becomes clearer and the Bible finally makes sense. The way of Jesus is not a secret yet it is hard to understand without taking a risk and plunging in. I highly recommend it. In my experience, nothing compares to it. Call me crazy but just a drop of Jesus…

Learning to Adapt to Change

Learning to Adapt to Change

How do you adapt to changes happening in your life? Change is hard and because life is nothing but change we need to somehow adapt to change. Some people have better ways to cope than others. At least, they are less destructive ways to adapt to changes. But learning to adapt to changes is a very important life skill. Or faith skill as I think of it. Learning to adapt to change… I’m sure you’ve realized that change is inevitable in…

Loving Jesus More than Anything

Loving Jesus More than Anything

I love Jesus. How could I not, right? He died for me and gave me a chance to be made right with God. Loving Jesus is a no-brainer to me. How about you? It gets tough when we are told in the Bible to love God and Jesus above all. More than ourselves. Even more than our kids. And even more than life itself. Ouch. Loving Jesus more than anything does not come naturally to us. Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord…

How to Release Our Faith

How to Release Our Faith

Do you struggle with stress? Or worry? Aren’t we crazy? God has promised to take care of us. Yet, we worry or stress out things. We have faith. Yet, somehow we don’t know how to release our faith. We don’t know how to be stress-free children of God. This is something I am currently learning and it seems to be an ongoing process. But I share with you what I’ve learned so far. Jesus replied, “Have faith in God [constantly] (Mark. 11:22, AMP)….

Unsuspected Enemies of Growing in Faith

Unsuspected Enemies of Growing in Faith

Do you want to grow in your faith? I think that is what we all want. But we might not want what it takes to make it happen. We’d like to get the benefits of a mature faith but we’re not willing to sacrifice for it. Or we’re not ready to wait for years while obediently keeping on doing what’s required. Craving instant gratification is an enemy of spiritual growth for sure. So is pampering yourself in comfort. Unsuspected enemies…

Leave Excuses Behind

Leave Excuses Behind

Wednesday night I was teaching a class about how faith can help us in tough times. While I was teaching I realized how much we really miss out if we keep on making excuses for why we are not getting to know God better. God can be everything we ever need and more. Yet, we prefer to struggle on our own. Why is that? It’s our loss for sure. But, also, living that way does not prepare us to heaven…

Dare to Be Great for God

Dare to Be Great for God

Isn’t it interesting how we can talk ourselves down from trying to achieve great things for God? How is it possible that we settle for less than God’s plan for us? It’s especially crazy if we think we’re doing God’s will by laying low. Folks, we have work to do. Let’s not believe what our enemy is whispering. God is calling our names, we have things to do and places to go. Be all you were created to be. Dare to…

Discover More of God

Discover More of God

Would you like to discover more of God? Good for you. My number one recommendation for you is to spend more time with God and he will reveal more of himself to you. The more time you spend with God, the more you get to know him. Getting to discover more of God firsthand is always the best approach. He wants to be found. I love all who love me.     Those who search will surely find me. (Proverbs 8:17, NLT,*)…
