Summer is a time of exploration and it is indeed good for us to get out of our routines. Also, when we are not in our comfort zone, we might be more likely to notice God’s movement in our lives. This happened to me this summer. I’ve always believed in guardian angels, God’s protection, and guidance so in that sense this was not a surprise for me. But these little experiences left me in awe of God anyway. God guards us….
I love Psalms. My whole life fits in the book of Psalms. It confronts, consoles, and counsels me. And, yes, it lifts my spirit and encourages me to go on with God. It reminds me what is important, who is in charge and why it matters what I choose and how I live. The book of Psalms guides me to the river of pure joy. Your faithful love is priceless, God! Humanity finds refuge in the shadow of your wings….
I love God for many reasons but one of my favorite things is the fact that he guides me. It’s not just talking. You see, it really happens whether we realize it or not. We are not alone in this world. God is with us and he is ready to help us. The best guide in the world wants to connect the dots for us. And Jesus does not just show us the way. He is the way. He guides…
Are you afraid of the future? I hear you, the world seems to becoming all the time crazier. Or do you feel you have you lost your way? Don’t worry, finding the safe way to the future is easier than you think. Jesus guides us this way: “Don’t be troubled. Trust in God. Trust also in me. My Father’s house has room to spare. If that weren’t the case, would I have told you that I’m going to prepare a…Pin It
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…Pin It
The whole Bible have promises upon promises to God’s children. Are they all meant for me too? Oh yes. Even the ones in the old testament. This is because of Jesus. All comes together in Jesus. All the promises of God become “yes” in Christ Jesus. How wonderful is that? Jesus came into the world so everyone who believes in him could have eternal life. Jesus is for all, may all be for Jesus. For no matter how many promises…Pin It
Does God want from us sacrifice or something else? What do you think? I think, God’s will is always good for us and some times it really does require sacrifice. But sacrifice should not be our end goal; we are not to religiously prove our worth or earn our salvation. Our goal should be God himself and leave the details of our life plan to him. Just being in the will of God is a blessing beyond belief. The wise…Pin It
It’s Monday. Hence it’s time to remind us of the things that really matter and keep us going no matter what. It’s time to held our two hands open to receive all of the Lord as Alan Redpath describes faith. It’s time to believe that this Monday morning blues is not all there is. I’ve always said there are always lots of reasons to praise the Lord anytime. These two verses from the first letter to Thessalonians sum up them…Pin It
I’ve been raspberry picking this week. We have lots of wild raspberry bushes just behind our garage. Raspberries are so delicious, aren’ they? They’ve taught me something too. If you look at a raspberry bush, it doesn’t look anything special, does it? But if you humble yourself and kneel down, you find treasures you did not expect from just looking at the bush. See yourself!This made me think that this is how we should live our lives too: humbly and serving…Pin It
Do you ever wonder what to do when you do not know what to do? Do you choose the first thing that comes along? Or do you become passive? Do you panic? Do you stress out? Life is full of times when we don’t know what to do. It’d be helpful to have a plan for those moments, don’t you think? Let’s see if we can figure out how to proceed when you’re clueless. We do not know what to…Pin It
