A New Fresh Love 

As I developed today’s article, an alarm triggered inside me – “How ever will I write anything to encourage people to love God more deeply? How ever will I develop credible thoughts to accurately present God’s new fresh love to readers? Love is a wonderful concept, and at times, almost impossible to carry out! I fail more often than I’d like to admit when it comes to loving God and others.”

Match God’s Heart

 

What does it look like to engage a life that matters? To avoid entanglements, skip the irrelevant, and move forward to be a seasoned believer. And what does it look like to apply practical decisions each day that make a difference in this world. You are only given a certain number of days. How can you make them really count and match God’s heart? What does it look like to carry out God’s agenda in your daily living?

Jesus said, “You are the salt of the earth.” (Mt. 5:13) I wonder what He meant. Why did God say this? It’s as if He is telling His people to ponder a bit to get at His meaning. Jesus want us to read between the lines.

Telling Jesus What to Do

Recently, a short phrase in Scripture caught my attention as I was going through my quiet time book.*    Stay. You don’t have to leave.

The Scenario

The disciples are in process of telling Jesus what to do. Imagine that! It has hit their radar that the crowd has been listening to His teachings all day. They did not bring any food. The obvious conclusion? “Send the people away to get food, Jesus.” They are being good disciples, don’t you think? They want to make Jesus aware, just in case He has missed something.

When Faith Hangs by a Thread at Christmas

God loves you so much. Christmas is His way of proving it. He became a person just like you. God-in-a-Baby grew up in this challenging world, now so different from how He created it. Baby Jesus entered shattered creation to become a Savior. He says, “Look! I am making everything new.” (Rev. 21:5) He invites you to trust Him for this “new” in daily details, disappointments, tragedies and sorrows, and in losses that cannot be fixed. Jesus is the prize of Christmas because He is the only one who can help.

Poured Out: Keep Your Head

The great work of a Christ follower is keeping your head and heart in the right place. Your heart is greatly influenced by what is going on in your head. The long haul of life affects how you think. Life is hard – especially when you suffer. Or when you’ve worked at things several decades with little result.

Exclamation Point !

No one wants to be rejected, left alone, overlooked. They want to matter. Each person wants to be important to someone. Valued. Loved. This is not an accident nor a faulty design. God purposefully created people with these inner desires and concerns. He made them to need to be special. To care about making a difference. And to care about others.

Circumstances Don’t Dictate Character 

You are who you are, and if you are synced with God, you are what God wants you to be. It may be different than what you had wanted. You may have had a completely different picture in your mind. But if you are synced with God, you have character.

What does synced with God mean? Read More …

Scripture’s Thinking Grid 

I remember how excited I was when I found a “Thinking Grid” in my Bible. A timeless tool that has provided guidance to Christians for centuries. This Thinking Grid specifies what thoughts to allow in your mind. And since thoughts influence words, it has direct influence on your speech and relationships.
