Becoming Alive

Becoming Alive

Are you in the process of becoming alive? Or do you insist staying the way you’ve always been? This C. S. Lewis quote captured my attention and refueled my Biblical imagination today. How about you?

Surprised by God

Surprised by God

Does God surprise you often? I do get surprised. Time after time. I already expect to be surprised by God. Because I know God is wild and is not tied down to physical realities.

A Cup Running Over

A Cup Running Over

Is glass half full or half empty? They say your answer depends on your outlook on life. But as Christians our life does not depend on us or on our outlook on life. Our cup is always full.
