The Safest Place in the World

The Safest Place in the World

What is your favorite place in the whole wide world? Maybe a place where you are safe and secure and feel loved as you are? I hope you have such a place. But if not, know that you are more than welcome into Jesus’ arms. It’s not only the best place but also the safest place in the world. How come? Because it’s a place where we find rest, peace, and grace upon grace. And as Warren Wiersbe has said,…

Uncomplicated Faith

Uncomplicated Faith

Sometimes I think we make our lives way too complicated. We don’t intend to do so but, anyhow, we do. The same goes to faith. It’s meant to be a joy and strength for our journey. And we make it a chore to do. How did we end here when God created us for his pleasure to enjoy him and the life he gives. How could we uncomplicate things? Are you ready for uncomplicated faith? Okay. How do we do…

The Beauty of Surrender

The Beauty of Surrender

Isn’t it interesting how everything in Christian life starts with surrender? The word and the thing we all hate until we learn the beauty of it. Let me explain. The beauty of surrender is real. It leads us from dark disasters into light and love. Sure, we are saved by grace but it doesn’t happen without surrendering our hearts to Jesus. Also, all the growth in grace and wisdom happens through surrender. The Christian life is all about surrender. God…

Your Secret Idols

Your Secret Idols

Where is your happy place? What do you do when you have some me-time? Answers to these questions reveal a lot about who you are and what you value most. They also can reveal your secret idols. It’s good to have a place where we can relax and put our hair down. But sometimes our heart leads us astray and we create altars for our secret idols and visit them much more than we should. For where your treasure is,…

Endurance, Encouragement, Hope

Endurance, Encouragement, Hope

When everything goes smoothly, it is easy to be happy. But when storms rage in the sea of life, we wail with the winds, right? What if it’d be possible to live calmly even in the middle of a tornado? What if endurance, encouragement, and hope were always up for crabs? For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have…

My Light and My Power

My Light and My Power

It’s really inspiring to hear how my texts and teachings have touched hearts (thank you for all your feedback). However, I have to admit that I feel immense emptiness and powerlessness as I get back to teaching, especially after a break. I was sharing this with God this morning and I understood that especially as empty and inadequate I was exactly the right kind of sharer of the Good News. Because it’s not about my message but about God’s Word….

Do Not Leave All the Goodness of Christmas Behind

Do Not Leave All the Goodness of Christmas Behind

Christmas is gone and we’re left in awe of God’s love. The question we need to answer now is: what are we going to do about it? How does God’s love change our lives? Or do we leave the joy of Christmas untouched until the next Christmas? That would be sad…and stupid, don’t you think? I do anyway. And that’s why I do not want to leave all the goodness of Christmas behind. The Word became flesh and made his dwelling…

The Hope Behind Decorations

The Hope Behind Decorations

Christmas is a wonderful time of year. But sometimes we are not feeling it. We might have experienced a loss of a dear family member or we’re struggling with an illness. Or maybe it’s the first Christmas after a bad break-up. There are a million reasons why Christmas might be a tough season. I feel for you. And I pray for you. Just know that Christmas is not about feelings it’s about the hope that comes from our Savior being born and that makes…

Always With Us

Always With Us

I’m almost weepy as I ponder on God’s promises to us and, especially, how beautifully he demonstrates that he is fully behind his promises. God became a human being so he could redeem our sins but also walk alongside us. He did not just tell us what to do, he became one of us. Even Jesus’ name declares God’s intentions to be always with us. All right then, the Lord himself will give you the sign. Look! The virgin will conceive…
