United by faith with the Word of God

United by faith with the Word of God

Are you united by faith with the Word of God? This is what I was pondering on after reading the fourth chapter of the letter to Hebrews. The writer states the message they heard did not benefit them, because it was not united with faith in God by those who heard. God’s Word needs to be merged with us so it could affect and bless us. Those who are united by faith with the Word of God are one with…

Time for Rest and Renewal

Time for Rest and Renewal

It’s time for rest and renewal, don’t you think? I’m ready for it anyway. It has been an emotional roller coaster month for my family and as I seek a new direction I feel I am truly in need of rest and renewal. That’s why I felt truly blessed when a friend of mine shared a Bible passage that had touched her heart. “‘For this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I myself will search for my sheep and look after them.  As a…

Worthy of God’s Love

Worthy of God’s Love

Because you’re worth it, says a cosmetic company to urge you to buy their products. It is a clever advertisement as it targets our longing to be worthy somehow. I hate to break it to you but there’s no such a product that could ever make you feel worthy. But I do know someone who can do it. Jesus thinks you’re to die for. You’re worthy of God’s love. There isn’t higher praise than that. But because of his great…

A Deeper Connection with God

A Deeper Connection with God

Lately, I’ve been reading about Moses. He was an imperfect man (like we all are) yet what a life and what a journey he had. And what a faith! I would like to have that kind of connection with God, you know. That’s why I am continually hoping and praying for a deeper connection with God. Do you know it is possible for each of us because Jesus cleared the way back to God? Today I read (Exodus 4) about…

Comfort for Hurting Hearts

Comfort for Hurting Hearts

Summer is here. How wonderful. Yet I know there are many who are exhausted or depressed or disappointed or not just feeling it. This post is for you.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in…

Give Me More of Your Spirit

Give Me More of Your Spirit

As you know I keep reading and rereading the Bible over and over again. I change translations and start anew. Every time the reading experience is a bit different, it really is the Living Word. I read God and God reads me. It’s our time together. Oftentimes a verse or a passage stays with me for the day or more. This time a verse has stayed with me since last week. I’ve read the verse many times before and I…

Time to Refrain from Embracing

Time to Refrain from Embracing

I have loved Ecceleciastes ever since my teenage years. There was something that captured my heart even though I could not pinpoint what it exactly was. Nonetheless, I appreciated the call to embrace life fully with God. But I would have never guessed it would help me to cope with COVID-19. Yet it does by stating there is a time to refrain from embracing, time for social distancing. There is a time for everything,    and a season for every activity under the…

This Too Shall Pass

This Too Shall Pass

This is just a sweet, little note to encourage you in the middle of your hardships. Believe me, this too shall pass. It might not feel like it and even not look like it but it’s true. Even the Bible tells us so: Nevertheless, that time of darkness and despair will not go on forever. (Isaiah 9:1, NLT,*) If we keep on seeking God and turning to him, this time of darkness will turn into light. This will not go…

Drinking from the Well of Life

Drinking from the Well of Life

During my morning prayer time, I felt strongly God wanted to remind me (and you) he is the Living Water, the source of all the good things, and the spring of life eternal. They are all fantastic things, huge gifts of God to us. He is the provider, we are always the receivers. We just need to abide in him, continually, to keep on receiving. A few hours later, I came across this quote by Gloria Copeland and I realized…

Fixer-Upper Goes to Heaven

Fixer-Upper Goes to Heaven

Do you live your life from an eternal perspective? I highly recommend it. Because it changes everything. It gets met pondering on the eternal value of things and letting go of things that do not have eternal value and doing more of things that will last forever. Today I want to talk about a new way of looking at heaven and eternity I got while discussing John 14 online with my Bible study group. In the vision, fixer-upper goes to…
