Photo by Vicky Sim on Unsplash What power do you use for living your life? Do you trust the power of coffee or energy drinks to pick you up or is your secret strength based on chocolate? Or maybe you rely on pure stubbornness? Managing your life is not a bad thing, and how could it be, right? But when we force ourselves to continue beyond exhaustion, we are not doing ourselves any favors. May I remind you of the heavenly power at work in all who believe in Jesus? Use the power you have received! Just like faith, it is God’s gift for his children. “Listen carefully: I am sending ..read more

Why Is Christmas Still a Big Thing?

Photo by Nick Fewings on Unsplash Some people have lost their faith in Christmas. Either it’s too commercial, too childish, or too something else. And, yes, if you look at Christmas as a social obligation, I agree. But we should not forget the meaning of Christmas. If we do, we celebrate something because it is that time of year. But Christmas is much more than cookies, presents, and get-togethers. Okay, you say, why is Christmas still a big thing? Glad you asked. Christmas is a big thing because we commemorate the birth of the savior of the world. Without Christ, we would have to drink up the ..read more

In Christ We Have Power

Photo by Ben White on Unsplash You are invited to live in Christ. Great, you say. But what does it mean? Simply put, it means you live your life with Jesus, sharing your ups and downs with him. It’s like having your best friend with you, cheering you on, or calming you down whenever needed. Jesus will coach, guide, bless, and warn you as needed. It means heaven in you and with you. When life gets hectic and troublesome, we often forget: In Christ, we have what Jesus has. He also brings power. Resurrection power. And nothing beats that. In Christ, we can face anything. That’s why I make sure I ..read more

Know Him Who Is True

Linda Braine/CreationSwap For me, Christianity is not a creed, it is a person. It is about getting to know him who is True. How would you define the Christian faith? Sure, our faith is based on the Bible. But without knowing Jesus, our faith is not alive. Why bother with a dead religion when you can be made alive in Jesus? And we [have seen and] know [by personal experience] that the Son of God has [actually] come [to this world], and has given us understanding and insight so that we may [progressively and personally] know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true—in His So ..read more

Prayers Make a Difference

Photo by Miguel Bautista on Unsplash The world is going crazy, or at least it feels that way. Suffering is real for many. Without the crucified Christ, I would despair. But with Christ, I keep hoping and increase my prayers. Because I believe prayers make a difference. In more ways than one. We make this plea, not because we deserve help, but because of your mercy. (Daniel 9:18a, NLT) Prayers make a difference, not because of us but because of God. God loves us, not because we’d be so great but because he is love. He can’t help himself but love. In the same way, he hears our prayers and will l ..read more

Photo by Motoki Tonn on Unsplash Let me tell you, my life got better when I learned to turn to God for anything and everything. As long as I tried to manage my life with my strength, I struggled because my strength was already used up early in the morning. Life is never easy, but with Jesus, my yoke is easy. The answer is Jesus. When I learned to lean on him and be strengthened by grace, I found joy like no other. It is good for the heart to be strengthened by grace. (Hebrews 13:9, NIV) Be strengthened by grace Even the Bible tells us it is good for the heart to be strengthened by grace. And w ..read more

Photo by NEOM on Unsplash Today, I want to share a few quotes about encouragement. When God has called you to do something, he will make it happen. It is not about your strength, power, and wisdom (or lack of them). It is about God and his abilities. Then we can face the future with joy and positive anticipation. It’s easier said than done, you say. Yeah, it might be so. Just remember to focus on God and you will thrive. Amy Carmichael has said, “It is great to be faced with the impossible, for nothing is impossible if one is meant to do it. Wisdom will be given, and strength. When the Lord le ..read more

Photo by Francesca Hotchin on Unsplash Have you ever met people who seem to ooze happiness? At first glance, they look like they have a halo that bright is the light around them. As you continue to observe them, you realize they have something deep within them that keeps them going despite their struggles. That is when you decide you want what they are having. You want to be as happy as them even when life continually gives you lemons. What about them satisfies them even though their lives are at least as lemony as yours? Charles Spurgeon has said, “There will be three effects of nearness to J ..read more

Photo by Taylor Wright on Unsplash How are you doing? Hopefully great! But sometimes life is hectic and you feel you’re running behind no matter what you do. Do you get stressed? How do you handle that? I think this is a very important life skill that all should have. I know there are a plethora of self-help tools available but I know of something better. And I am not talking about handling stress, I am talking about taking on strength like no other. He gives power to the weak     and strength to the powerless. (Isaiah 40:29, NLT) As Christians, we have power like no other ..read more

Photo by Mayur Gala on Unsplash Do you know how to keep yourself in God’s love? This is an important question because only in his love do we feel safe and secure, happy and blessed. And his love is the rightful and most joyful place for all his children. Hence we need to know how to stay there. Only when we remember God’s goodness, do we dare to wait for God. The letter of Jude guides us this way: But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus ..read more
