Rest is Necessary

Isn’t it amazing that our bodies need rest to function properly? And not just one, two or even three hours of rest, but eight hours of sleep per day, seven days a week.  We can not neglect rest. God even rested, and I believe that is our cue to do the same.  “By the seventh…

Being Our Authentic Selves

Today, I want to remind you to be your authentic and true self. The world needs YOU – not who you’re emulating, not who you’re trying to be – who you actually are! There is a call on your life that only you can answer. Seasonless areas are waiting for your matchless flavor (Matthew 5:13).…

The Puzzled Life

Have you ever thought about how life resembles that of a puzzle? A puzzle has many pieces that are needed to be complete. The task itself requires persistence and creativity to achieve its complexity. Like a puzzle, we as humans are also complex and have various parts to life that will complete our life story.…

Asking God Why?

Heaven Only Knows

When you think about heaven, what do you think about, truly? Is it all your favorite foods? Is it no more sorrow? Are your loved ones there? Is it one big Christian party? Is God there? I remember years ago I dreamt that I was flying in a helicopter over what seemed to be heaven,…

True Identity

A lot of things in this world can describe the lives we live, but these things don’t truly define us. Think of all the degrees we sometimes pursue to show off the letters behind or in front of our name, or the accolades and honors we receive from people around us or from our careers.…

How Do We Thank God?

Recently, I’ve been thinking about how to put action behind how thankful I am for all God has done in my life. But, the more I think about it, God is definitely the Father that already has everything. So, what could I possibly give? And then it occurred to me. My life is the only…

The World Needs You

The Bible is full of people we meet who were created for a purpose. From Adam to Moses, from David to Esther, from Daniel to Deborah from John to Paul they were all created to do spectacular things. And just like them, you were also created on purpose for a purpose to do wonderful works. …
