Waiting on God Is Wise

Waiting on God Is Wise

Summer seems to be a time when everything stops. Nothing happens. Yes, we need that kind of time to relax and rejuvenate. But too much is too much, right? Little by little we become anxious to do something, anything really. The wise thing here is to wait until it’s the right thing to do, not just because we are too anxious to wait. This happens in our spiritual life too. Waiting on God is a big part of Christian living. We…

How to Build a Beautiful Life

How to Build a Beautiful Life

Do you rush around like crazy? Trying this and trying that? And nothing really comes together anyhow? Have you thought about asking God in what you’re doing? Have you thought about beginning with a prayer? Or – this is even a wilder thought – have you thought about laying down your own agenda asking God what and when and how he would like you to proceed? Because that is how to build a beautiful life. Unless the Lord builds the house,…

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!

The Art of Waiting on God

The Art of Waiting on God

I don’t hold a master’s degree in waiting on God, nor in patience. But I am praying that I’d be slowly molded into an artist of waiting on God. Biblical waiting means confident expectation, trusting that God will do what he has promised. That God knows best both what needs to happen and when it needs to happen. That God will be preparing us while we are waiting. That God works for the good who believe in him. There are…

What to Do When God Is Silent

What to Do When God Is Silent

Too often we worry about if we have done something wrong when God feels distant. The silence of God is part of salvation life. Sometimes it lasts few days or weeks, sometimes the silent period lasts months or even years. But it doesn’t mean that we would be abandoned. It doesn’t mean that we would be bad Christians.  If God chooses to be silent there is nothing we can do to prevent it. The silence of God is not exceptional….
