No Peace without Jesus

No Peace without Jesus

Are you stressed out? Does a quiet retreat sound good? Are you looking for a get away in the midst of chaos? Make sure you’re not looking for peace in wrong places. C.S. Lewis reminds us “God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.” There’s no peace without Jesus. No matter what the world says. I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have…

Confession or Excuses?

Confession or Excuses?

Sometimes you hear someone mention they’ll return to God when they get their act together. That makes me sad because they’ve misunderstood the process so badly. It’s not our job to put our act together on our own. We need Jesus for that. But Jesus is more than happy to help us out. Anytime. Anywhere. With the words of Oswald Chambers “If the Spirit of God detects anything in you that is wrong, He does not ask you to put…

Readiness, Trust, Peace

Readiness, Trust, Peace

My word for 2015 has been readiness. I had no clue what to to expect of this year or what I would learn along the way. But the word intrigued me from the very beginning. It did bring some nice surprises along the way. For example, our family was lead to a huge trip to the other side of the world with a week’s notice. But mainly this study on readiness has taught me about what it means to be…

God First

God First

Usually, when we talk about the Biblical concept of putting God first, we think of choosing between God and other things/people in our life. But I think it is also choosing between you and God. We are so selfish that we think of ourselves first all the time. Even in our prayers we just let God know how he could help us. We do not seek him for the sake of him. Lord, have mercy! That’s why I truly enjoyed…

Ready to Die, Ready to Live

Ready to Die, Ready to Live

Are you afraid of natural disasters or living in general? Or are you ready to die, ready to live? Life sure is unpredictable. We can’t control it. We don’t know the time of the end of the world, neither the time of our own death. We only know that it will come one day. There’s far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can’t see now will…

How to Have Peace of Mind

How to Have Peace of Mind

Do you desire to have peace of mind? I think we all do. When we have peace of mind, we are happy. It is that wonderful feeling when you know all is well and all is going to be all right. But how to have it in the midst of every day chaos? How to have it as the world gets tougher day by day? How to have peace of mind when it seems all we have is the opposite?…

How to Be at Peace

How to Be at Peace

As we approach Thanksgiving and other big family celebrations, it is good to remember how to be at peace in demanding situations. We can’t be peaceful without being centered on God. We can’t be gracious without resting in grace ourselves. We can’t be loving without feeling God’s love. What to do then? Before you enter into difficult situations (or any day for that matter) spend time with God. Not just a hasty prayer here and there but pray until praise…
