How to Live to the Max

How to Live to the Max

Do you know how to live to the max? Isn’t that every person’s dream? Yet so many of us fail miserably. We don’t really know how to go about it. Life lived to the max seems like an enigma. Should it be this difficult? Of course not. How then do we mess up our lives so badly? Most likely we look in the wrong places or drift into easy life. How can we then learn to live to the max?…

Through the Filter of the Cross

Through the Filter of the Cross

Do you blame yourself for past mistakes? Do you insist on labeling yourself as a loser? Are you stuck in a rut? It’s time to wake up to see yourself with God’s eyes. It’s time to embrace the freedom of Christ. It’s time to believe the good news of forgiveness and renewal. It’s time to let the bygones be bygones. It’s time to move on into new life with God. Kurt Bubna profoundly writes in his book Epic Grace, Chronicles…

Restoration with Love

Restoration with Love

There is no way around it: Love is the most important thing in our lives. Without love we are lost, broken and lonely. But God’s love and grace can change that. Like Kurt Bubna writes in his book Epic Grace, Chronicles of a Recovering Idiot: “Let me tell you from firsthand experience what I know about the love and grace of God. It’s ludicrous. It’s scandalous. It’s crazy. It’s ridiculous. It’s healing and restoring. And it always break my heart….

Despite Disappointments

Despite Disappointments

One of the most important life lessons is to learn to deal with disappointments. They are part of life and we need to learn to deal with them in order to live well. If we don’t…well, we become bitter and do not live well. When other people disappoint us, we get frustrated. When we disappoint ourselves, we get depressed. And when circumstances work against us, we get discouraged. How could we learn to stay hope-filled in the midst of disappointments?…

Celebrating Despite Hardships

Celebrating Despite Hardships

We’ve all been in situations that seem hopeless. We just can’t see how things can ever work out again. And sometimes this period of fogginess lasts weeks, months, even years. Kurt Bubna writes about this in his new book Epic Grace, Chronicles of a Recovering Idiot “Our perspective is so limited. Our vision is so imperfect. Our ability to see the bigger picture is incredibly restricted and inadequate. We live so often in a fog. The hills are still there,…

Why Does God Test Us?

Why Does God Test Us?

Why does God test us? What do you think? The Bible is pretty clear about this. This is how Moses answered: The Lord your God is testing you to see if you truly love him with all your heart and soul. Serve only the Lord your God and fear him alone. Obey his commands, listen to his voice, and cling to him. (Deut.13:3-4; NLT) Kurt Bubna states in his new book Epic Grace, Chronicles of a Recovering Idiot “God will…

Trouble Is Normal

Trouble Is Normal

God’s promises are not too good to be true. Jesus even promised something that some of us wish he hadn’t. Jesus told us that in the world we will have trouble, tribulation, and trials. But that’s not the end of it. Jesus also told us that he will be with us until the end. He told us that he deprived the world of power to harm our souls. Read for yourself! I have told you these things, so that in…

Extra Grace Required

Extra Grace Required

We all know people that either drains us of energy or drives us other wise nuts. How are we supposed to deal with these very draining persons? Especially as Christians? I’d rather not deal with them at all. But that’s not a very constructive attitude, is it? Certainly not very Christian anyway. What would Jesus say? “You’re familiar with the old written law, ‘Love your friend,’ and its unwritten companion, ‘Hate your enemy.’ I’m challenging that. I’m telling you to…

Learning to Live with Grace

Learning to Live with Grace

Are you a good manager of your time and money? Is your life in good order? Do you have what it takes to navigate wholesomely your life journey? Or do you need help? Time for evaluation: “Take a good, hard look at your life.     Think it over. You have spent a lot of money,     but you haven’t much to show for it. You keep filling your plates,     but you never get filled up. You keep drinking and drinking and drinking,…

Healing Balm Called Grace

Healing Balm Called Grace

Do you need healing balm? Lucky you, there’s plenty of it available. It’s called grace. It is meant for all people. And there are no other qualifications than sinfulness. Hence, I think, we all qualify. There’s no one without sin. Also none of us have a monopoly on grace. We are all just happy receivers and meant to pass it on with love. Because we all need it. One of the reasons why I love Kurt Bubna‘s new book is…
