Have You Heard? Trouble Is Normal

Have You Heard? Trouble Is Normal

COVID-19 has certainly revamped our lives, hasn’t it? The new normal has been challenging for sure but nonetheless we have prevailed, right? So many of us pray daily that this pandemic would end so we could go back to trouble-free existence. But I have news for you. Trouble is normal in life, there is no such thing as trouble-free existence. Actually, Jesus promised us troubles and some of us wish he hadn’t done it. Jesus told us that in the…

The Eternal Perspective

The Eternal Perspective

How do you feel about the events of Good Friday? They’d be much harder to take if we did not know what happens next, right? Because we know the death of Jesus is not the end, we can take it. This is how the eternal perspective works. It brings life in the midst of death. For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in…

Grow Strong in Faith

Grow Strong in Faith

Sometimes we think we should have strong faith right away. And that belief might cause some to shy away from faith altogether because they think they’re not cut out for faith. But faith is a gift from God, to begin with. And very few of us start out strong in faith. We slowly grow strong in faith. It’s a process empowered by the Holy Spirit and not about our own merits. Faith is based on grace from start to finish….

Death as the Doorway to Eternity

Death as the Doorway to Eternity

Life is complicated, isn’t it? When you feel you’re getting hang of it, something happens and everything changes and you’re once again trying to cope. You don’t know how long you will live either. Life sure is unpredictable. When you’re young, life seems endless but the older you get, the shorter life seems to become. What to do then? How do you handle aging? Is death something that will take away all your fun or could it be something more…

Resurrection Makes All the Difference

Resurrection Makes All the Difference

Resurrection makes all the difference, folks. Without the resurrection, we’d be without hope. Life would be just life, no hope for broken hearted. No hope for sick and unhappy. And, certainly, no hope for sinners. Blessedly, God knew better. He knew we needed him even when we did not know we needed him. Hence, he sent Jesus to die for us. Jesus came to friend us, teach us, and save us. Because Jesus died on the cross and was resurrected,…

Life Is a Gift from God. Do Not Take It Granted.

Life Is a Gift from God. Do Not Take It Granted.

Do you think life is a gift or do you take your life granted? Even if think in theory that life is a gift, there are times when we get so busy and task-oriented that we almost forget that life is a gift from God. A very precious gift from God. When we don’t appreciate breathing, we take life granted. And that leads us into life that is not all it is meant to be. What to do then? Life…

God Chooses You

God Chooses You

Do you know that God chooses you? Time after time. No matter what, God chooses you. This kind of grace-filled love empowers us, don’t you think? Especially when we know that God said yes to us before we’ve said yes to him. God’s yes is pure grace. God chooses us because he loves us, not because we’d be so perfect or other wise noteworthy. Whatever God has promised gets stamped with the Yes of Jesus. In him, this is what…

From Desert to Oasis

From Desert to Oasis

Are you dreaming of carefree existence? Are you hoping to have a life filled with peace, trust, and quiet strength? Would you like to be safe, confident and fully alive? Don’t we all? Just too often our life resembles more a desert than an oasis though. Life without God is like living in a desert. When we are living in a desert the elements of a good life are limited. But when we allow the Spirit of God rain on…

Be Fruitful for Christ

Be Fruitful for Christ

I’ve never felt comfortable writing a Mother’s Day post. And even this is mostly an unlikely one. I have a wonderful mom (love you!) and I love being a mom. But my heart goes out for anyone who would (have) like(d) to be a mom and isn’t. I don’t feel comfortable boasting about my blessings. (But we are certainly encouraged to count our blessings). The only thing I want to boast about is God’s grace. And that is the best…

Looking for Abundant Life?

Looking for Abundant Life?

Are you looking for abundant life? Make sure you’re looking at the right places. Check twice that you’re not running after false gods. Because you become what you embrace. If you go after false idols, you become false. If you worship the Holy God, you receive life upon life. Pin It
