The Weight of Perfection

I wish I could say it’s easy for me to spend quiet, uninterrupted time with God. I wish I could say every time I find myself in a situation where I can offer the Gospel, I do. I wish I could say every time I sit down to hear from God in His word, I…

God Speaks

One of my favorite hobbies is curling up with a good book, and the book I just finished did not disappoint. The book was about a woman navigating a post-apocalyptic world on a boat. The waters have risen, and the only habitable land is on mountain tops. On one mountaintop, a man who heard from…

In the Presence of Jesus

“A few days later, when Jesus again entered Capernaum, the people heard that he had come home. They gathered in such large numbers that there was no room left, not even outside the door, and he preached the word to them. Some men came, bringing to him a paralyzed man, carried by four of them.…

New Year, Same God

If 2021 has taught me anything it’s that trouble truly doesn’t last always. God will always come through for us, and each year I understand this more deeply.  “I was young and now I am old,     yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken     or their children begging bread.” Psalm 37:25 NIV If you’re going…

Living in the Present

Some days, I find myself forgetting what it actually means to live in the present. It can be easy to revert to reminiscing on great things from the past while hoping that the future will bring great things as well. But when I choose to skip the present, I’m robbing myself of the blessings and…

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?

When I’m faced with storms or if my family members and friends are faced with difficult situations, I find myself asking God why. Why is this happening to me? Why is this happening to us? Why is this happening to them? But then I remember Lazarus’ story.  1 Now a man named Lazarus was sick.…

Rebound Time

If anything is certain, it’s that life will always be unpredictable. Unfortunately, there is no map to where life will take us, nor is there a dictionary that will define every puzzling part of our lives. All this uncertainty can inevitably cause fear, anxiety and doubt to creep into our minds. But, when these feelings…
