You Are More than Tasks

Why is it so deeply engraved in us that we’d need to be productive or successful in order to be accepted or admired? Yet it is a big fat lie and the eternal truth is far from it. Mary DeMuth exposes ten lies and shares ten truths in her latest book Stop Living Small: Ten Truths Toward Your Significant Life. This post will tackle the second lie: You are what you produce by showing you are more than tasks. Mary DeMuth…

You Are Wildly Loved

You Are Wildly Loved

Life is hard. And it gets even harder when we believe lies that keep us down. Mary DeMuth exposes ten lies and shares ten truths in her latest book Stop Living Small: Ten Truths Toward Your Significant Life. This post will tackle the first lie: you do not deserve love by showing how you are wildly loved instead. You might think you don’t deserve love and all those wonderful Bible passages of God’s love do not apply to you. But you…

The Ultimate Healer

The Ultimate Healer

Have you been hurt badly? Or is sorrow your constant companion? Is your heart so broken that you doubt if it can ever be whole again? I hear you. I’ve been there, done that. But I have good words for you. And they are not “time heals. “Ann Voskamp has said “Time never heals wounds like God does.” God is the ultimate healer. He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds [curing their pains and their sorrows]. (Psalm 147:3, AMP,*) I…

Sitting at Jesus’ Feet

Sitting at Jesus’ Feet

Which Bible character do you mostly identify with? Mary is the woman I mostly identify in the gospels. That’s why I truly enjoyed reading her diary in Mary DeMuth‘s and Frank Viola‘s brand new book The Day I Met Jesus: The reavealing diaries of five women in the gospels. The stories are found in Luke 10:38-42, John 11:1-7, 17-44, and John 12:1-11 (or Matt 26:6-13, Mark 14:3-9). The first one is the story of Jesus visiting Martha and Mary, the…

The fourth diary is of a woman with a…

The woman of the third diary is found in John 4:1-42. It’s the story of the Samaritan woman meeting Jesus at the well. This encounter at the well is the longest personal conversation reported in the gospels. It gives us all hope.Frank Viola points out “Consider this, dear reader. If your Lord could…

Leaving Self-Righteousness (at the Foot of the Cross)

Leaving Self-Righteousness (at the Foot of the Cross)

Last week I started blogging through Mary DeMuth‘s and Frank Viola‘s brand new book The Day I Met Jesus: The reavealing diaries of five women in the gospels. The woman of the second diary is found in Luke 7:36-50. I’ve always been in awe of the woman who wet the feet of Jesus with her tears and wiped them with her hair and soothed his feet with perfume. Would I dare? Do I love Jesus as much as she did?…
