No exception. All because of Christ. The servant grew up before God—a scrawny seedling,     a scrubby…

God Has Reserved a Place for You

God Has Reserved a Place for You

Do you feel worn out? Beaten? At the end of your rope? Just know that God has reserved a place for you in his arms. I just love knowing that the downcasted will be treated with extra special care. For the weakest God has reserved a place closest to his heart. Doesn’t that comfort you? You don’t need to handle everything. You don’t have to be strong and knowledgeable. You can come as you are. God will cherish you. You…

Prayer Renews Our Strength

Prayer Renews Our Strength

Prayer is such an awesome gift for us. We just neglect it too often. We somehow don’t believe enough in its power. But can we afford not to pray? I don’t think so. I have written a post about my reasons why I can not live without prayer. Prayer simply invites God into our lives. Hence prayer enables us to be human and leaves everything else to God. Prayer is also an antidote for anxiety and a power tool in God’s…

Redeeming Regrets

Redeeming Regrets

Last Friday I shared about my lowest point in my life and how God has wondrously healed me. But for a long time I carried around regrets. If I only could have seen it coming. If I only had not married him in the first place. If I only…. you get the picture. But then God taught me that he can use everything for his glory. Like Mary DeMuth writes in her Everything book “Jesus wastes none of our stories,…

Summer Time Blessings

Summer Time Blessings

As I told in the recent Flowing Faith Newsletter I’ll be blogging a bit less during the summer months and the Weekend Prayer Wall is also taking a break until the fall. I will most likely be blogging at least Monday-Wednesday-Friday. I’ve been blogging every week day for quite some time now and I don’t know how I can keep myself from blogging next Tuesday. 😉 But I know this time for renewal and recreation will be a blessing, too….

Seek God – You Will Not Be Disappointed!

Seek God – You Will Not Be Disappointed!

Happy Mardi Gras/Fat Tuesday! Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday that marks the beginning of Lent. The season of Lent is a special time when we are called to prepare our hearts and minds to Easter. Some people give up something (meat, sweets, TV etc) for Lent and some take something on (f.e. a certain spiritual discipline) for this period of 40 days before Easter. The main idea is to seek God and let him show what areas of our lives need…

Living in Hope

Living in Hope

Do you remember Hannah who yearned to have a child? How she felt crushed in soul but prayed to God anyway. How she prayed for a son and promised to give him back to God. (1 Sam. 1) Her prayer was an authentic plea right from her heart. Before the year was out, Hannah had conceived and given birth to Samuel. Hannah did what she had promised to God. After she had weaned (much later than today) the much wanted…

What to Do With Regrets?

What to Do With Regrets?

Do you have regrets? Or are you carrying bitterness or hurt around? Do you keep your real feelings from God? Do you only bring the good in you before God and deal with the bad on your own? Many of us do just that. We might forget the regrets for the most of the time but they are there. We might hold ourselves accountable and don’t forgive ourselves our own wrong doings. We might have been badly hurt and we…
