When You Are Weary, Crawl to Jesus

When You Are Weary, Crawl to Jesus

When you are totally empty, just crawl to Jesus. It doesn’t matter you have nothing left to give, you are still most welcome to Jesus. God is way more interested in you than in what you can do for him. Actually, with less of you, there is more room for Jesus. So when you’re exhausted and weary, don’t hesitate, just crawl to Jesus. Know that you can always find rest in Jesus. Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who…

How to Be Prepared for Tough Times

How to Be Prepared for Tough Times

Often we have big why questions when horrible things happen. But that question does not help us to deal with disasters. Because we can’t understand why certain things happen. Some of the evil things are caused by humans, directly or indirectly. But there are a lot of mysterious, inexplicable suffering in the world too. Whatever the cause of the current suffering is, taking it all in is taxing. Then it’s just time to lean on God, trust Him for seeing…

Praying and Praising the Lord (with Psalm 34)

Praying and Praising the Lord (with Psalm 34)

Today I’m interacting with Psalm 34 (MSG). Join me in praying and praising the Lord and blessing his name. There’s nothing better in this world. Nothing better than being a child of God and knowing that God has always been taking care of you and he is helping you right now and he will continue to do it. No exceptions. Always and forever. Join me in praying and praising the Lord I bless God every chance I get; my lungs expand with his…

How Can We Go on?

How Can We Go on?

The world news seems to be getting more horrific all the time. Suicide bombers, kidnappings, massacres, wars, murders, accidents. It all feels terrible, it’s easy to get discouraged. How can we go on like this, we ask. How can we continue to enjoy living when the world is full of tears and heartbreak? But don’t we then forget this is not all there is? Don’t we forget why Jesus came into the world? The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on…

Dependence on God

Dependence on God

How is your day going? How do you stay alert to God and what he is doing in your life? We can’t let routines overtake the preciousness of life or busyness trump the sacredness of life. We truly need to refuse to become so self-sufficient that we forget our total dependence on God and his amazing grace. With the words of Paul Chappell “The mundane tasks of everyday life can lull you to apathy and push God to the back…

Too Much to Bear?

Too Much to Bear?

How are you doing? I’ve been pretty exhausted lately. Nothing major, just too little sleep and too much to process. Thankfully, I know where my strength comes from. My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth (Psalm 121:2, NIV). Especially now spending time with God is essential. Otherwise I would not make it. Often people say God does not give you more than you can bear. But life is not fair, things happen, and, suddenly, we do…

He is our healer, our savior. He gives…

God Is Good All the Time

God Is Good All the Time

Isn’t it amazing how God blesses us for merely following his guidance? You see, I felt God nudging me to do this random “Message in a Bottle” giveaway so I put it in the motion awhile back. Little did I know that this little giveaway would bless me so much. And I hope you will be blessed too. Crystal won the giveaway and she requested that I would send the message in the bottle to his cousin’s wife, Lisa Greshko,…

What Jesus Did and Did Not Promise

What Jesus Did and Did Not Promise

You hear so many stories of how people turn away from God when they have experienced some heart-breaking difficulties. Somehow they’ve learned to think that if you believed in God there would be no hardships anymore. But that’s not what Jesus promised for his followers. He promised something much more amazing and important. All this can be found in this one Bible verse with the words of Jesus: I have told you these things, so that in Me you may…
