When in Need of Restoration

When in Need of Restoration

Are you counting down days to your summer vacation? Are you tired, empty or worn out? You are not alone. It happens. But don’t be discouraged or dismayed. Help is very near. And that help is powerful yet gentle. It’s creative and redemptive. Because of Jesus, this restoration is possible. The biggest restoration happens when we come to Jesus for the first time. This is complete renewal, not just a quick-fix to conceal some faults. Jesus cleanses us from inside…

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…

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…

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…

We Will Not Lack

We Will Not Lack

God is so good. God’s Word is so good. Any time I open it, I am in awe of God’s loving kindness. I am not surprised God is taking care of me. That’s his promise for all of us. I am now days expecting it and looking forward to it. But I am always surprised how he does it. How simply, how effortlessly, how gently he does it. How easily he refreshes me. I am always blown away, always in…

Goodbye for Gray Living

Goodbye for Gray Living

As you probably have noticed, I like to end my posts with a prayer. I do that because I believe that all change begins in prayer. I believe that all the good things start with God. My calling is to bring others to Jesus. And in prayer people can meet Jesus firsthand. Today I wrote the prayer before writing the post itself. And I pray God will answer that prayer in this post. (Maybe this is too random but we…

From Desert to Oasis

From Desert to Oasis

Are you dreaming of carefree existence? Are you hoping to have a life filled with peace, trust, and quiet strength? Would you like to be safe, confident and fully alive? Don’t we all? Just too often our life resembles more a desert than an oasis though. Life without God is like living in a desert. When we are living in a desert the elements of a good life are limited. But when we allow the Spirit of God rain on…

The Spiritual Immune System, part 2

The Spiritual Immune System, part 2

Last week we started our journey towards healthy spiritual immune system. I presented a formula for spiritual health. God (the Spiritual Immune System) : Father (Rest) + Son (Nutrition)+ Holy Spirit(Exercise). We need to have a healthy diet and a good balance of exercise and rest. All that together equals as the spiritual immune system. [This second part of the series will be about the Father/Rest in the equation. The third part will be about the Son/Nutrition and the fourth…

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….
