The Purpose of Waiting

The Purpose of Waiting

Waiting is part of life. Most often we don’t like it but we have to deal with it. But what is the purpose of waiting? I’ve started to think the purpose of waiting is to prepare us. And the longer we refuse to be prepared, the longer the waiting period will be. Because we can’t enter into a new phase of life until we’re ready. Okay, you say. How can we get ready for the unknown future? True, we don’t…

Wait in Peace

Wait in Peace

Waiting for a dream come true is very hard. Especially without trying to manipulate the outcome. We would like to force God’s hand to bless us and bless us now. But that’s not how blessings work. That might even be a recipe for a disaster. How then could we wait in peace? John Ortberg has said, “What God does in us while we wait is as important as what we are waiting for”. If we truly understand this, we might…

Surprised by God

Surprised by God

Does God surprise you often? I do get surprised. Time after time. I already expect to be surprised by God. Because I know God is wild and is not tied down to physical realities. Sure, God is faithful and does what he has promised. But his methods are surprising and timing is secret, so we can count on being surprised by God. He is not limited to what is possible. He will do what he wants. And for that I…

Following Jesus in Real Life

Following Jesus in Real Life

Following Jesus is my heart’s desire. Now that I’ve been waiting for God’s guidance for quite some time, I’ve caught myself wondering what I’ve been doing wrong. Maybe I could have done this and that. The list gets very long very quickly. And it gets me off the track very efficiently. Following Jesus in real life is more difficult than we’d like. You see, when you heart is at the right place, when you’ve surrendered yourself to Jesus, God will…

Thoughts on Waiting

Thoughts on Waiting

Today I’ve been inspired by some thoughts on waiting and I want to share them with you. May they encourage you on your faith journey as well! We who have hope in Christ are able to wait because we know God is good all the time. For in [this] hope we were saved. But hope [the object of] which is seen is not hope. For how can one hope for what he already sees? But if we hope for what is…

Until Jesus Comes Back

Until Jesus Comes Back

Do you know what we are supposed to do until Jesus comes back? Are we just going to hang around? Or does it matter how we spend our time here on earth? Yes, it does matter. We are called to follow Christ, introduce our friends and family to Jesus and do as much good as possible. We are called to be Christ to the world. Aim at and pursue righteousness (right standing with God and true goodness), godliness (which is…

The Blessings of the Ascension Day

The Blessings of the Ascension Day

What’s the point of Ascension Day? (Other than getting a day off in Europe?) Why would we be excited about following the cloud? Why would be excited about Jesus leaving us? Let’s find out. He [Jesus] told them, “You don’t get to know the time. Timing is the Father’s business. What you’ll get is the Holy Spirit. And when the Holy Spirit comes on you, you will be able to be my witnesses in Jerusalem, all over Judea and Samaria,…
