This Lenten season is a wonderful opportunity to see if we’re putting something else than God into the first place in our lives. What does take up the most of your time? Or what occupies your mind most? It’s so easy to get distracted and start caring more of Netflix or hobbies than God Almighty. Sometimes we need to do less in order to see what’s important and what’s not. When we do less, we can seek more of God….
Lent is a perfect time to do some self-examination. Are you on the right track? Do you seek God with everything you’ve got? Or do you seek to fulfil your own yearnings instead? It’s too easy to believe in our head yet keep faith out of our everyday lives. Do you turn your back to God when you make decisions? It really comes down to this question: do you ignore God? The Lord says, “I was ready to respond, but…
How has the new year treated you so far? Do you have particular plans? Do you know the makings of a great year? If you do, then it’s easier to make it happen, don’t you think? So let’s see what are the makings of a good year. It shouldn’t be that complicated, should it? And it’s not, believe me. But first and most importantly seek (aim at, strive after) His kingdom and His righteousness [His way of doing and being…Pin It

This world around us tries to teach us to solely look after ourselves and seek self-gratification. Like that would bring us happiness and fulfillment in the long run. But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will…Pin It
Are you preoccupied with concerns or stressing over ways to keep your resolutions? It’s time to remind yourself that you have a higher purpose than organizing your life. There is a deeper meaning for your life than succeeding in your pursuits (no matter how noble they are). But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you…Pin It
Today our quest for what it means to “Live well, Live wisely, live humbly” (James 3:13, MSG) continues. We started our quest yesterday. Today we talk about how ‘living well’ can help us on our quest for God’s will. And, yes, you guessed it, tomorrow we tackle ‘live wisely’ and the day after tomorrow ‘live humbly’. In essence, following God, being a disciple of Jesus Christ and living in the Holy Spirit, is what leads us to find God’s will….Pin It
I love how God comes to us. It’s always God coming to us. Just think of what happened after Adam & Eve had eaten the apple. The Lord God called to the man and said to him, “Where are you?” (Genesis 3:9, CEB) God is always looking for us. And when nothing else worked, he sent his only son to us. It’s always God first. Always God coming to us. Always God loving us first. Pouring out his grace enabling…Pin It
