Let’s Turn to Jesus

Let’s Turn to Jesus

As the Coronavirus spreads, we are forced to pause. It can feel strange to suddenly have so much time on your hands. Instead of panicking or numbing the hollowness you feel inside, let’s turn to Jesus. He is the only one who can fill the empty hole inside of you. With the words of Blaise Pascal “There is a God-shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God, the…

Let Love Come Close

Let Love Come Close

I find the gift of faith is so amazing that I have a hard time understanding why everybody does not think so. Because through faith we are all invited to come to God who is love. Why would anybody refuse to let Love come close is beyond me. Because love makes everything better (in my book anyway). I believe people either have not heard or have not understood the essence of Christianity. Most people think faith is old-fashioned or irrelevant…

Thankfulness Brings Blessings

Thankfulness Brings Blessings

Thankfulness might seem like a waste of time but it’s not. Quite the opposite, actually. Thankfulness blesses us more than we can imagine. How do I know this, you ask. I know by experience. Also, the Bible tells us so. Thankfulness welcomes God into our life. And when that happens, everything changes. Because the power of God is more than we can imagine. And this is the power that is not forceful. Instead, when invited, it brings peace and joy. And…

Complete in Christ

Complete in Christ

Just a quick reminder for all of us that we don’t need a telescope or a microscope or read horoscopes to find God or realize the hollowness of life without him. We are nothing without God. Our lives are just a big, ugly, shallow show without him. Blessedly, God sent his only son to make us complete in Christ. Everything of God gets expressed in him, so you can see and hear him clearly. You don’t need a telescope, a…

Missing God

Missing God

Are you missing God in your life? Good for you, it’s the Holy Spirit at work in you, wooing you back. God is always there but, sure, we can choose to ignore him or the world can lure us away. But there’s no wholeness or profound well-being without God. O God, You are my God; with deepest longing I will seek You; My soul [my life, my very self] thirsts for You, my flesh longs and sighs for You, In a…

The Way to Wholeness

The Way to Wholeness

One of the best things about Christianity is that we are not just saved, made right with God but we are also made whole. Wholeness is something everyone in the world wants. We want to feel complete. We want our lives to be wholesome. We want to be happy, whole, and peaceful. The way to wholeness is available for us in Christ. But only in Christ. But it was our sins that did that to him,     that ripped and tore…

Focus on Jesus

Focus on Jesus

The quickest way to unhappiness is the road the world thinks leads to happiness. Really. We tend to think if we only could satisfy our every whim and want we’d be happy. But we could not be further from the truth. When we focus on earthly and temporal things, we lose track of what really matters. Only when we focus on Jesus, we achieve what we were looking for from the beginning. For there are many, of whom I have…

Wholeness Is Possible

Wholeness Is Possible

Lately, I have been contemplating on wholeness. It seems to be the goal for every person on earth. According to Victor Frankl meaninglessness in our lives is a hole, an emptiness, in our lives. Whenever there is a vacuum we rush to fill it with things. We keep on trying one thing after another – shopping, money, work, sex, drugs, entertainment, relationships, hobbies – but nothing fills the hole. But God. Look at that man, bloated by self-importance—    full of…

Our Prayers Matter

Our Prayers Matter

Do you pray without ceasing? Do you spend enough time with Jesus? Here’s some incentive to pray more. I was reading the fifth chapter of The Revelation to John when I came across this “they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of God’s people. (Rev.5:8, NIV) Our prayers are honored more than we can ever know. They are lovingly brought to God by angels. Our prayers join the eternal worship of God. Our prayers matter….

Sin Breaks Us

Sin Breaks Us

Over and over again the Bible proclaims that if we repent, God will forgive us. This grace feels too good to be true. Yet it is true. Love, grace, and forgiveness form together the very essence of God. Because we are not able to become holy on our own, God sent his only son to redeem us. Because Jesus died on the cross for our sins, we can be forgiven by grace through faith in Jesus. But if we confess…
