How to Handle Burdens

How to Handle Burdens

Don’t you just love those days when you feel light-hearted and happy? Seize those days. Enjoy them and don’t worry then about darker days. When life is easy, give thanks. And when life sometimes shows darker shades, do not despair. As Christians, we know how to handle them. Our God is bigger than our burdens and nothing is strange to him. We can trust and lean on him on our good days and our bad days, until the end of…

Cast Your Pain on Jesus

Cast Your Pain on Jesus

Pain is inevitable in life. There’s just no way around it. So we have to deal with it. How do you do it? What’s your coping mechanism? Some people become bitter when life throws a hardball at them. That is one way to go. But there’s another option, a much better one. I highly recommend it: cast your pain on Jesus. This is why he came into the world: to save us and carry our burdens. Cast your burden on the Lord [release…

Finding Your True Identity

Finding Your True Identity

We spend a lot of our time and energy in trying to find out who we are and where we belong. Marketers want to influence us by showing us possible identities – and stuff that goes along with that image. We are told to make something of ourselves. So we try to be successful, to be something, anything, really. Yet, we might miss our true identity altogether if we pass God’s invitation to come to him. Henri Nouwen has said, ‘Jesus came to…

How to Reach Your Full Potential

How to Reach Your Full Potential

Most people seem to think it’s up to them to reach their full potential. They think it’s about will-power and dedication and, yes, those are good qualities. Yet life, success, and reaching your full potential is not at the end about you. And even if you would do everything in your power to reach your full potential, you would still have not reached all you can be. Because just as some parts of our identity is hidden in Christ, so…

How to Be in Awe of Jesus Today

Don’t you just love reading how people flocked to Jesus? How they were in awe of him.

Prayer from a New Perspective

Prayer from a New Perspective

How do you define prayer? Prayer is communication with God. It is pouring out our soul to God. Also, prayer is as important as breathing for Christians. All these things are great and prayer is really awesome. But I heard yesterday a definition of prayer that led me to look prayer from a new perspective. Pastor Jämsen said yesterday ‘prayer is us turning away from our potential opportunities’. We stop trying to solve everything ourselves and turn to God to…

Walking in Freedom

Walking in Freedom

Today I want to share a quote about the difference being set free and walking in freedom. It reminds us that even being saved is not all God has for us. He wants us also keep on walking in freedom and live in light and love. Because he has provided everything for us to do so. Even walking in freedom is not to be done on our own power but in his strength and by his grace. This is Christian…

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…

Forgiven Sins Sink to the Bottom of the Ocean

Forgiven Sins Sink to the Bottom of the Ocean

Do you have guilt over something you’ve done in the past? Even after you’ve repented and been forgiven? I’m delivering good news to you. Once God has forgiven you, he chooses not to remember your sins anymore. How do I know? The Bible tells us God will trample our sins under his foot. So all our forgiven sins sink to the bottom of the ocean. Once they’re forgiven, they’re gone down under.  He shall again have compassion on us; He will subdue…
