Spiritual Routines

Spiritual Routines

Routines kill creativity, they say. I think it is busyness that kills creativity, not routines. In fact, routines can protect creativity. And spirituality as well. Both creativity and spirituality need time and nurturing. That’s why we need to give them just that. Hence we need routines. We need spiritual disciplines to help us to grow. On the other hand, discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness [keeping yourself spiritually fit]. (1 Tim. 4:7, AMP,*) We need spiritual routines… The Bible tells us…

The Most Underused Spiritual Weapon

Gratitude is the most underused spiritual weapon. Often we don’t even realize gratitude or thanksgiving is a spiritual weapon. But it is. A powerful one. Let’s find out why we should use it. And then use it the rest of our days. Not just for the benefits but because it’s fun and easy and it will bless us more than we can ever know. And the alternative is awful: For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God…

What Can We Learn from Jesus’ Agony in Gethsemane

On Monday of Holy week Christians traditionally read and contemplate on Jesus praying in Gethsemane. Luke concentrates on Jesus’ prayer and not on the failings of the disciples. Let’s see if there are any blessings hidden in the story. Let see what we can learn from Jesus’ agony in Gethsemane. And He came out and went, as was His habit, to the Mount of Olives, and the disciples also followed Him. And when He came to the place, He said to…

Flow and Flowing Faith

Flow and Flowing Faith

Have you experienced Flow? I have to admit that when I am writing I can burn all the cooking even if I am just 10 feet away! The writing process is so exhilarating that I can’t help it. My husband knows this and he calls me on my cell to wake me up from Flow when I need to tend to some everyday stuff in the midst of my writing time. According to Wikipedia “Flow is the mental state of…

Spiritual books are my companions on my way home to God. Books are my spiritual friends and I love spending time with them. And most of all I love that they enrich my thinking, empower my spiritual walk, and encourage me on my pilgrimage. Of course, the most important book in any Christian’s life is the Bible. I cherish it and I devour it daily. I enjoy comparing different translations and I am forever in awe how God can speak…

Even when we are out of energy and clear guidance we…

How to Satisfy Your Soul

How to Satisfy Your Soul

Is your soul satisfied? How do you feed your own soul? What does shape your soul? It does make a huge difference what we let enter into our souls. We can harm our souls with wrong choices. “We work to feed our appetites; Meanwhile our souls go hungry. (Ecclesiastes 6:7, MSG) “Don’t dabble in the occult or traffic with mediums; you’ll pollute your souls. I am God, your God. (Leviticus 19: 31, MSG) “Look at that man, bloated by self-importance—…

Preventing Spiritual Hunger

Spiritual hunger is a very unpleasant traveling companion. As pilgrims we have a long way to go and our path will not always be easy. So we need to make sure we are as spiritually healthy as we can. In order to prevent spiritual starvation we need to stay close to God and bask in his presence. When we are spiritually well fed it is so much easier to take any rough patch on the road. If we include God…

Spiritual Strength-Training (re-post)

Spiritual Strength-Training (re-post)

Why on earth would we need spiritual strength-training? The Merriam-Webster dictionary tells us that few definitions of strength are capacity for exertion or endurance, power to resist force, and power of resisting attack. These are all qualities needed in spiritual life! God is strong, and he wants you strong. So take everything the Master has set out for you, well-made weapons of the best materials. And put them to use so you will be able to stand up to everything the…
