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…

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…

Dialog with God

Dialog with God

Prayer is a dialog with God. Or that’s how it is meant to be. But in reality, too often we just spill out what’s on our heart and then run off before God has a chance to respond. So prayer becomes a monologue instead. But even just as a monologue prayer is important and powerful but as a dialogue, it becomes life-changing and empowering. How can we then dialogue with God? Having a dialogue with God is simple but prayer…

Tune in to God

Tune in to God

Are you rushing around like crazy? Unfortunately, many of us do. But, you know, that way we rush through our whole lives without savoring them. It is time to take back our lives. We don’t have to rush around without purpose. There is time for everything. Especially for lingering in God’s presence and listening to him. Hence do not rush, tune in to God. How then to slow down? C.S. Lewis guides us this way “It comes the very moment you wake…

Walking in Freedom

Walking in Freedom

Today I want to share a quote about the difference being set free and walking in freedom. It reminds us that even being saved is not all God has for us. He wants us also keep on walking in freedom and live in light and love. Because he has provided everything for us to do so. Even walking in freedom is not to be done on our own power but in his strength and by his grace. This is Christian…

The Way of Jesus

The Way of Jesus

Oftentimes Christians seem strange. And I wholeheartedly agree. Anyone who pledges faithfulness to an invisible force must be nuts, right? But when you experience the touch of Jesus yourself, everything suddenly becomes clearer and the Bible finally makes sense. The way of Jesus is not a secret yet it is hard to understand without taking a risk and plunging in. I highly recommend it. In my experience, nothing compares to it. Call me crazy but just a drop of Jesus…

Room for Miracles

Room for Miracles

Is there room for miracles in your life? I hope so. Otherwise, you’d be limiting God in your life. And, in some ways, I think faith itself is a miracle, anything with God is a miracle. Every breath we take is a gift, every blessing is a miracle. If we want more God, we need to make room for miracles, make room for God to show up. Because God is a miracle-worker. God is awe-inspiring from dawn to dusk. He…

Learning to Dance in Grace

Learning to Dance in Grace

Recently, I was looking for some wall art. Something inspirational to start my day out right. So I was browsing on the internet to get a general idea what’s available these days. I stumbled upon some word quote stickers and decided to see if anything resonated with me. One of them declared: ‘Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain’. It is a beautiful sentiment, don’t you think? Full of positive…

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….
