Nothing Left for You to Worry About

Nothing Left for You to Worry About

There is one verse in the Bible that erases worries powerfully. It is not probably what you think. But it is powerful nonetheless. It reminds us who is in control and whose we are. And if we do remember that, there’s no reason to worry, right? Your eyes saw my unformed body;     all the days ordained for me were written in your book     before one of them came to be. (Psalm 139:16, NIV, emphasis added) The whole psalm139 is a…

Blaming God ?

Blaming God ?

Are you blaming God for your difficulties? Or are you angry at God for letting you suffer? I have news for you. It’s natural but not Biblical to think life, even for a follower of Christ, should be smooth sailing. The Bible does not promise life without difficulties or give an exempt for suffering. Actually, we are promised quite the opposite. I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have[perfect] peace. In the world you have…

Wholeness Is Possible

Wholeness Is Possible

Lately, I have been contemplating on wholeness. It seems to be the goal for every person on earth. According to Victor Frankl meaninglessness in our lives is a hole, an emptiness, in our lives. Whenever there is a vacuum we rush to fill it with things. We keep on trying one thing after another – shopping, money, work, sex, drugs, entertainment, relationships, hobbies – but nothing fills the hole. But God. Look at that man, bloated by self-importance—    full of…

REthink Your Life with Jesus Christ

REthink Your Life with Jesus Christ

How would your life be different if you dared to “live as if Christ died yesterday, rose this morning, and is coming back tomorrow “(Martin Luther)? This question has been staying with me for quite a long time now. You are called to rethink your life with Jesus Christ too. Are you really following him? Would you be ready to state like Jack Hyles “I’d rather die in the will of God than to live outside of it”? When you’re…

Running with Purpose

Running with Purpose

Do you know why you are you and why you are living on this earth? It is hard to live without meaning and purpose. But only when we are made right with God, we find what is the purpose of our lives. Rick Warren writes “Bringing enjoyment to God, living for his pleasure, is the first purpose of your life. When you fully understand this truth, you will never again have a problem with feeling insignificant. It proves your worth….

How to Live to the Max

How to Live to the Max

Do you know how to live to the max? Isn’t that every person’s dream? Yet so many of us fail miserably. We don’t really know how to go about it. Life lived to the max seems like an enigma. Should it be this difficult? Of course not. How then do we mess up our lives so badly? Most likely we look in the wrong places or drift into easy life. How can we then learn to live to the max?…

Called to Be Saints

Called to Be Saints

Do you know that you’re called to be a saint? For real. Right now and right here. How do I know? I read it in my Bible. I am currently reading through the Bible in the New Revised Standard Version. Today my attention was grabbed by Paul’s greeting to the Corinthians. Paul, called to be an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and our brother Sosthenes,To the church of God that is in Corinth, to those who…

Your Higher Purpose

Your Higher Purpose

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…

Perfect Is Boring

Perfect Is Boring

Sometimes I wonder why we try so hard to be perfect and blend in. Because perfect is boring. It would be very bland if we all looked alike. It would be very boring if there were not any variety. And not just that. We would also know so much less of God. You will notice that the variety of bodies is stunning. Just as there are different kinds of seeds, there are different kinds of bodies—humans, animals, birds, fish—each unprecedented…

Spiritual Stone Pathway

Spiritual Stone Pathway

Sometimes our path of life seems so desert-like. Stone after stone after stone. We might feel that God has abandoned us in the middle of nowhere. We would like that our pathway of life would be something else than it is. Or at least we would like to see where we are going. The picture above reminds me of the fact that, even though, our path seems not to have consistency or any other quality we think a happy path…
