Hope for People Who Walk in Darkness

Hope for People Who Walk in Darkness

November is a hard month in the northern hemisphere. As days are getting shorter and shorter, it seems our moods are getting darker and darker. It feels like all the weight in the world is on our very own weak shoulders. Will this last forever or is there a way forward? We are in desperate need of hope. Is there any left? Actually, my friend, there is plenty of hope for people who walk in darkness. Nevertheless, that time of…

Friendship with God

Friendship with God

Do you know how to handle envy? Feeling jealous is not necessarily a bad thing, it can tell us what we need or want. We just need to know what to do with it. When we give our envy to God, he gets the chance to create something positive out of it. Yesterday I was envious of Moses’ friendship with God as I read about it. The Lord would speak to Moses face to face, as one speaks to a friend. (Exodus 33:11,…

Check Your Idols

Check Your Idols

I find reading the Bible is essential for all believers because it serves as a mirror for us. Otherwise, we could easily think we’re on the right path while in reality wandering aimlessly in the wrong direction. It’s scarily easy to wander away. Best intentions do not help when we follow our own whims instead of God’s plan for us. It’s time to check your idols. Without the Bible, we’d be lost faster than we can imagine. We might think…

The Power of Jesus’ Name

The Power of Jesus’ Name

Today I want to remind all of us of the power of Jesus’ name. You are safe and protected, you don’t need to stress whether you will make it or not. You will. Not because you’re so good but because there is power in the name of Jesus. When you live in Jesus’ name, you truly are safe. Just hear how Jesus is praying: Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so that…

It’s OK to Not Be OK

It’s OK to Not Be OK

The message I want to share with you today is very simple yet it seems very needed: It’s OK to not be OK. You have biblical permission to be not okay. You don’t believe me? That’s okay. But please do believe Jesus. I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace. In the world you have tribulation and distress and suffering, but be courageous [be confident, be undaunted, be filled with joy]; I have overcome the world.” [My conquest is accomplished, My victory…

Do you know that as a child of God you’re also a special agent of God? Yes, you’re called to do good in this world. And you’re empowered to do so by God’s grace. One of the most important tools in this is prayer. You are licensed to pray, to ask God anything in Jesus’ name. “This is what I want you to do: Ask the Father for whatever is in keeping with the things I’ve revealed to you. Ask…

Fill Your Emptiness with Jesus

Fill Your Emptiness with Jesus

Today I want to talk about a Bible passage that doesn’t give warm fuzzies to most of us. It might even shake us to the core so we’re glad to move on thinking it does not speak about us. But it does and that’s why I want to talk about the passage today. It’s not enough we’re cleansed from all unrighteousness, we also need to be filled with God’s love. So fill your emptiness with Jesus and your life will…

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…
