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…

Light at the End of the Tunnel

Light at the End of the Tunnel

We all know times when we have felt like being in a cold, moldy, dark tunnel. It feels that in that place in time there is no way out. But with the words of Anne Lammott “hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: You don’t give up.” You don’t give up and you cling to the…

How to Handle Disappointments

Disappointments are part of life. There will always be some sort of disappointments along the way. If we expect no hardships we will always be disappointed and might even become bitter.

But when we praise God when we don’t feel like it, we are…

Three Practical Steps for Healing

Have you ever been so severely crushed that you thought you’re never going to recover? Have you been in such a storm that you thought you’re never going to make it? I’ve been there. But because of God’s mighty grace I made it. Most people don’t even guess I’d ever experienced anything so publicly humiliating and personally devastating. I’ve experienced God’s healing grace like Mary DeMuth writes in her new book Everything: “He [God] wants us to heal so fully…

God Is Not a Deceiver!

God Is Not a Deceiver!

Just today I was asked on Twitter “Why does God offer glimmers of hope only to yank them back ???” and felt that this is a question that deserves a little longer answer. I believe this is a real sentiment of many people in today’s tough economic climate. But I assure you: God is not a deceiver. What God says, goes. What God promises to us will be fulfilled. Times change but God doesn’t. God is the same yesterday, today…

Let God Define You!

Let God Define You!

Don’t let the world define you. You are a child of God. Your value derives directly from God. As a heir of Almighty God your value is beyond measure. It doesn’t matter whether you’re single or divorced. It doesn’t matter if you’re jobless or homeless. it doesn’t matter if you’re sick or handicapped. Don’t let those things define you. Let God take over your life and step into freedom in Christ! And don’t be wishing you were someplace else or…
