Wait in Peace

Wait in Peace

Waiting for a dream come true is very hard. Especially without trying to manipulate the outcome. We would like to force God’s hand to bless us and bless us now. But that’s not how blessings work. That might even be a recipe for a disaster. How then could we wait in peace? John Ortberg has said, “What God does in us while we wait is as important as what we are waiting for”.

Waiting on God Is Wise

Summer seems to be a time when everything stops. Nothing happens. Yes, we need that kind of time to relax and rejuvenate. But too much is too much, right?

You answers tell a lot about your thoughts about how a Christian should live his/her life. Let’s see what others have said about discipleship and obedience.

Thoughts on Waiting

Thoughts on Waiting

Today I’ve been inspired by some thoughts on waiting and I want to share them with you. May they encourage you on your faith journey as well!

For how can one hope for what he already sees? But if we hope for what is…
