Healing from the Inside Out

Healing from the Inside Out

I know many of us are in great need of physical healing (Right now I have several people on my prayer list). But let’s not forget the even greater need for spiritual healing. Because through spiritual healing we are not given just life in this world but also life after death. If we don’t have spiritual cleansing from inside out, it does not matter how healthy we otherwise are. Because then we are walking in the land of death. We…

Spiritual Energy Drink

Spiritual Energy Drink

Are you tired, weary, exhausted? Are you asking what’s the point of all this? Are you feeling just terrible? The psalmist is right with you. Here’s a scripture prayer – a mighty energy drink – for all the weary pilgrims:    I’m feeling terrible—I couldn’t feel worse!       Get me on my feet again. You promised, remember?    When I told my story, you responded;       train me well in your deep wisdom.    Help me understand these things inside and out       so I…

Through the Filter of the Cross

Through the Filter of the Cross

Do you blame yourself for past mistakes? Do you insist on labeling yourself as a loser? Are you stuck in a rut? It’s time to wake up to see yourself with God’s eyes. It’s time to embrace the freedom of Christ. It’s time to believe the good news of forgiveness and renewal. It’s time to let the bygones be bygones. It’s time to move on into new life with God. Kurt Bubna profoundly writes in his book Epic Grace, Chronicles…

Restoration with Love

Restoration with Love

There is no way around it: Love is the most important thing in our lives. Without love we are lost, broken and lonely. But God’s love and grace can change that. Like Kurt Bubna writes in his book Epic Grace, Chronicles of a Recovering Idiot: “Let me tell you from firsthand experience what I know about the love and grace of God. It’s ludicrous. It’s scandalous. It’s crazy. It’s ridiculous. It’s healing and restoring. And it always break my heart….

What I Hope for You This Summer

What I Hope for You This Summer

What I hope for you this summer is very simple. I hope you find some time for prayer and renewal in Christ. Very often the root cause of any stress in our lives is that we are self-centered and not God-centered. May this summer be a blessed time to become refocused on God! Only then we can see all the blessings around us and praise the Lord. For he is good all the time. Praise the Lord! Let my whole…

A Prayer of Repentance

A Prayer of Repentance

We come to you, Lord, knowing that you love us no matter of what. That’s why we dare to come to you, knowing that you will help us. We put our hearts and souls in your hand. Generous in love—God, give grace!     Huge in mercy—wipe out my bad record. Scrub away my guilt,     soak out my sins in your laundry. I know how bad I’ve been;     my sins are staring me down. (Psalm 51:1-3, MSG) We ask for grace to…

God Has Reserved a Place for You

God Has Reserved a Place for You

Do you feel worn out? Beaten? At the end of your rope? Just know that God has reserved a place for you in his arms. I just love knowing that the downcasted will be treated with extra special care. For the weakest God has reserved a place closest to his heart. Doesn’t that comfort you? You don’t need to handle everything. You don’t have to be strong and knowledgeable. You can come as you are. God will cherish you. You…

Prayer Renews Our Strength

Prayer Renews Our Strength

Prayer is such an awesome gift for us. We just neglect it too often. We somehow don’t believe enough in its power. But can we afford not to pray? I don’t think so. I have written a post about my reasons why I can not live without prayer. Prayer simply invites God into our lives. Hence prayer enables us to be human and leaves everything else to God. Prayer is also an antidote for anxiety and a power tool in God’s…

Redeeming Regrets

Redeeming Regrets

Last Friday I shared about my lowest point in my life and how God has wondrously healed me. But for a long time I carried around regrets. If I only could have seen it coming. If I only had not married him in the first place. If I only…. you get the picture. But then God taught me that he can use everything for his glory. Like Mary DeMuth writes in her Everything book “Jesus wastes none of our stories,…
