Graciously Imperfect

Graciously Imperfect

Completing something feels great, doesn’t it? Unfortunately, we don’t get to feel that too often. Life is full of incomplete things and unfinished business. And, what is the most annoying thing, we aren’t finished products either. If we don’t want to always be unsatisfied at some level, we need to learn to embrace our imperfectness. Because as longs as we pretend we are already perfect and complete, we are not learning and growing. Instead, we are merely existing. But when…

Let Yourself Be Renewed

Let Yourself Be Renewed

Too often we think it is our job to renew our mind. We put it on our to-do list and forget it under the pressures of everyday life. And the truth to be told, if it were up to me, my mind would never be renewed. I am not into religious performances. Rather, I crave for spiritual intimacy with our heavenly Father. If you’re with me, let’s find out how you can let yourself be renewed. Instead, let the Spirit renew…

Room for Miracles

Room for Miracles

Is there room for miracles in your life? I hope so. Otherwise, you’d be limiting God in your life. And, in some ways, I think faith itself is a miracle, anything with God is a miracle. Every breath we take is a gift, every blessing is a miracle. If we want more God, we need to make room for miracles, make room for God to show up. Because God is a miracle-worker. God is awe-inspiring from dawn to dusk. He…

God’s Plan to Redeem, Restore, and Refine Us

God’s Plan to Redeem, Restore, and Refine Us

Have you tried to please God and failed miserably? Join the club. We can’t please God by self-improvement and we can’t be good on our own. Blessedly, that is not the end. We are not saved by works but by God’s grace. God’s plan to redeem, restore, and refine us is rock-solid. We know very well that we are not set right with God by rule-keeping but only through personal faith in Jesus Christ. How do we know? We tried…

How to Become Meek

How to Become Meek

On Monday’s post How to Seek Guidance we concluded that only when we are meek we are ready for God’s guidance. Otherwise we are not in a condition to apprehend his guidance. So we really want to become meek, right? How to do that? That’s the quest for today. First, I want to address what meekness is and is not. Then we talk about how we can become meek. Meekness is not weakness. Instead, Meekness is power under control as…

How to Reflect God’s Glory

How to Reflect God’s Glory

I love how God talks to us through daily occurrences and divine coincidences. I usually read some chapters from both the Old and the New Testament but I am not right now using any specific reading plan (other than reading the Old Testament chronologically). Today I was reading from Ezekiel and Romans. You would think they have nothing to do with each other. But they both talked about people “who have eyes to see but do not see, who have…

The Mirror of God

The Mirror of God

God’s word is a mirror. We just need to dare to look at it. What do I mean? We could take, for example, any story Jesus told to his disciples. If we dare to ask the Holy Spirit to read our heart and show us what we need to know, God’s word will be a mirror for us. The picture that we see in our hearts is God’s message for us. Keep this in mind when you read the parable…
