  • A Solid Foundation

    A Solid Foundation

    His Word provides a solid foundation that makes my life relatively stable regardless of the turbulences I experience. While my emotions can be on a rollercoaster from one day to another and my thoughts can vacillate from one moment to the next, the outcome of my life has been fairly stable and consistent with God’s promises for my life.

  • Meditation: Cast your Burden

    Meditation: Cast your Burden

    Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved (ESV) – Psalm 55:22 If I cast my burden on the Lord, sharing my thoughts, concerns, and worries with Him rather than bearing them alone, He will sustain me. The cause for concern may not […]

  • Day 24: The Efficacy of Prayer #28DayChallenge

    Day 24: The Efficacy of Prayer #28DayChallenge

    To pray literally means to make a request or a petition, usually to a higher power. However, the word “prayer” in the Christian sense includes all kinds of communication and interaction with God. Whether we are giving thanks for His goodness to us, praising and worshipping Him for who He is, making requests for ourselves, […]

  • Day 17: Following God into the Future #28DayChallenge

    Day 17: Following God into the Future #28DayChallenge

    The future: that imaginary place where all our problems are solved and our dreams are fulfilled. The younger we are, the more excited we are about the future. It holds so much promise and possibility that we can barely wait to get there. We make plans and write lists and take steps to get to […]

  • Day 13: Friday, Good? #28DayChallenge

    Day 13: Friday, Good? #28DayChallenge

    Good Friday. Was it really good? Definitely not for Jesus or his followers, whose long-awaited Messiah was crucified by the authorities. A little search on the internet suggested that the origin of the word “Good” is an old English word which means “Holy”. If this is correct, then it would be more appropriate to think […]

    Day 12: Judas, Betrayer #28DayChallenge

    Thanks for joining me today again. As we come upon Easter, it feels fitting for me to reflect on some of the themes around the death and crucifixion of Jesus. I would like to zoom in on a character that has received extended treatment and analysis over the centuries: Judas. Judas’ role in the arrest […]

  • Day 11: Faith, Unfeigned #28DayChallenge

    Day 11: Faith, Unfeigned #28DayChallenge

    Today, I want to share a few thoughts on faith, particularly in connection with the adjective “unfeigned” as used in the King James Version of the Bible. If you use more modern versions such as the NKJV or NIV, the word will likely be rendered “sincere” or “genuine”. In the first chapters of both his […]

  • Waiting

    Waiting

    Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. (Psa. 27:14, NIV) I don’t like waiting. Whether for a divine promise or a human verdict, I like to see or experience the things I am expecting as soon as I am aware they are on the way. Waiting often feels […]

  • Idols

    Idols

    You shall make no molded gods for yourselves (Exod. 34:17, NKJV) Hello! It’s been almost a month since my last blog post and it feels like forever. The interesting thing is that I’ve been writing every day. I have been working on a project that will take me at least one year to complete. So, […]

    Blessed are those who Mourn

    Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted (Matt. 5:4, NIV) Hello! Happy New Year to you. I hope your 2022 is coming along well. I pray it will be a year of growth and maturity in your faith, one without limits and boundaries. I pray that through God’s wisdom you will exceed […]
