Public vs. Private (Reblogged)

“We call things ‘secular’ because we have neatly detached God from most spheres of life and confined Him to spiritual game-reserves called ‘sacred areas’ where we visit Him from time to time.”

Disturbingly true, isn’t it?

Strength for Each Task (Reblogged)

Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal comfort and a wonderful hope, comfort you and strengthen you in every good thing you do and say. (2 Thessalonians 2:16, 17 NLT)

How sweet to know that the Son of God has not only given us an eternal comfort, but also continues to comfort & strengthen our hearts in the paths He leads us on!

Prayer: “Be thou my strength and comfort this day and always. Amen”

Get Up and Try Again (Reblogged)

Ever heard the following song:

Get up and try again, smile away that pain
Brush away that tear, dear child your Father’s near
He will always understand and lend a helping hand
Lovingly He’ll say, “Get up and try again”.

As you go through the week, keep this in mind: No matter what has happened in the past, the Lord is closer to you than your very breath!

Smooth mountains (Reblogged)

I’ve heard it said before: ‘child, if the mountain were smooth, you couldn’t climb it’.

There might be a reason for the mountain, and a purpose for its roughness. Wait patiently on the Lord to see you to the top!

Hope in the face of doubt

“If you feel like you’re at the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on!* The God of Heaven is the God of great miracles and provision. He is holding the other end of the rope.

*Often attributed to Thomas Jefferson and Franklin Roosevelt although the actual source might be a proverb from the American West in a 1946 article in Pearce, T.M., “The English Proverb in New Mexico,” California Folklore Quarterly 5, no. 4 (1946): 354

God Sees The Best In You

Do you know people who only see the cup as half full? That’s not your God.

God always wants the best for you and sees the best in you. Sure, He wants you to “fix up” in those challenging areas of your life, but through it all, He’s rooting for you to get it right.

Imagine running in a stadium and you’re about to beat Usain Bolt in the 100metres; there’s someone cheering wildly in the crowds and shouting at the top of their lungs. That’s God cheering you on and waving a banner saying “You can do it!”. Just imagine that.

God sees the best in you, but how you see yourself matters. So today, look in the mirror, what do you see? I see greatness.

Rest Assured

Father, help me believe and rest on this simple but reassuring truth: that whatever you allow into my life will work for my good (cf Romans 8:28). Impress this thought deep into my spirit so that it will bear me through any sort of situation that comes my way. This I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen
