We Are Not Robots

We Are Not Robots

We need rest because we are not robots. Hence we all need a vacation, some time off. But this does not mean we need to necessarily go anywhere. The key to vacation is to take a leave of absence from routines. Staycation might be even more restful if we are able to break the routines while staying at home. We are not robots, we have a spirit, a soul, and a body. And all these different parts of us need to…

Take a Pause – Regularly

Take a Pause – Regularly

Running around and always doing something is not our purpose in life. Our purpose comes from communing with our Maker. And that is not possible if we constantly are stressed out about things and press on fitting more stuff in our already busy lives. We do need to take a pause and do it regularly. Otherwise, we will burn out. Not only physically and mentally but also spiritually. And that’s the opposite of God’s will for our lives. Yet, sadly,…

Good News for Tired and Weary

Good News for Tired and Weary

Are you tired and weary? Does it feel overwhelming just to think of doing any good deeds? Do you know what? It’s time to rest. And the best place for resting is in God’s arms. Yes, we are called to do good deeds but God does not send the ones who are tired and weary out. He calls them to come and rest in him. Later on, when you’ve recovered he will send you out again. But not before you’re…

Sundays for Worship and Play Only

Sundays for Worship and Play Only

I reserve Sundays for play and worship only. I try to avoid doing anything useful (like doing laundry or mowing the lawn). When you first start doing this, it might feel a bit annoying that you can’t deal with the everyday stuff whenever you want. But when you truly embrace the idea of play and worship only, you start celebrating the fact that you have a whole day set aside for worship and play only. You can plan ahead of…

Raise Me Up, Lord!

Raise Me Up, Lord!

Are you in need of a boost? Too worried of this or that? Or maybe just plain exhausted after trying everything and still nothing seems to work out? This post is a gentle reminder for you to rest in God’s arms and not to worry. If you are a child of God, all is well… even when it does not look like it. We might be at the end of our rope…but God’s possibilities are endless. Hang in there, friend….

Make Room for Rest

Make Room for Rest

Did you wait for summer so life could get a bit less hectic? But now you’ve found yourself running a busy summer schedule? Now you’ve wondering where did the promised restful time disappear? Where is your peace, right? It’s great to have many opportunities. It’s great to have a chance to try different things. But busyness does not bring peace or rest or rejuvenation, all those things that we were wanting from this summer. It’s time to cut back, don’t…

Go to God

Go to God

Last night my new class called Faith in Everyday Life started. I had been anticipating, praying and preparing for it for quite some time now. The class was well attended and it was a huge blessing to see how much enthusiasm for learning and growing in grace there was. One thing always amazes me after a speaking engagement is that I feel myself so empty. Peaceful but empty. Blessed but empty. Fulfilled but empty. Today it’s time for my own…

Peace with Your Weaknesses

Peace with Your Weaknesses

Today I want to talk about weaknesses. We all have them even though we don’t want to admit them. We use too much energy to cover them up. But that’s not wise. We will then miss something beautiful and profound: God’s strength in us. Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away. 9 Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my…

Spiritual Rest

Spiritual Rest

To tell the truth, right now I am a bit disappointed with myself. Even though I know how to find rest in God I have become stressed out. There are, of course, many things that have contributed to my weariness. The end of the school year stuff, obviously. But I have to admit that I am also getting tired of waiting on God’s guidance. And now, after typing that sentence, I am even more disappointed with myself. I am in…

Real Rest

Real Rest

Are you in need of rest? Don’t be fooled. Don’t look for it in the wrong places. Turn to God, get away with him, and find real rest for your soul. Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle (meek) and humble (lowly) in heart, and you will find rest (relief and ease and refreshment and recreation and blessed quiet) for your souls. (Matthew 11:29, AMP,*) God is gentle and humble at heart. He wants what’s…
