Easter, Personal, Seeking God

Of failure and love

I just got back from the most amazing Easter weekend in a non-denominational monastery. For the past three days I got to switch off my mobile and my head, enjoy  beautiful nature, singing birds, sunshine and most of all Spirit-filled services and prayer meetings. With special liturgical elements the brothers and sisters of this community… Continue reading Of failure and love

In God’s presence, Prayer

How to pray when you have no words

I have been silent on this Blog for a while and not only here. I have these phases once in a while when I don’t feel like conversing, talking and expressing myself. And that also affects my prayer life. But how do you pray when you have no words? Does God need me to speak… Continue reading How to pray when you have no words

Beauty of God, In God’s presence

Be still and know…

Those of you who regularly read my blog might have noticed that I like going for walks. And as I just got back from another inspiring walk through Winter Wonderland I realized why I truly love them.

Christmas, Seeking God

My favorite Christmas light

So I just got back from a little walk through the neighborhood again and today enjoyed seeing all those Christmas lights in windows and yards everywhere.

Martha, Martha…

Yesterday Jesus reminded me of one of the stories in Luke.  While I was busy, trying to get done all things on my long to do list, frustrated more and more that the day was almost over, I was still not done and so the time that I had wanted to spend with God was… Continue reading Martha, Martha…

In God’s presence, Seeking God

Be creative with God

Do you sometimes struggle to stay connected with God in your day? I do. I love Him, I know I need Him but still I sometimes get so distracted by all the busyness of my day that I completely forget about Him. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 tells us to pray continuously and without ceasing. But how… Continue reading Be creative with God

In God’s presence, Personal

Ask, seek, knock…?

The YouVersion Bible App’s daily verse of yesterday and today were Matthew 7:7 and Matthew 7:8 where Jesus says: ““Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one… Continue reading Ask, seek, knock…?

In God’s presence, Personal

Of trees and birds

Today when I was sitting on a bench outside, enjoying the warm weather, my eyes were caught by some dry dead leaves on a tree right next to me and it was like God was calling for my attention. So I started looking at the rest of the tree which was full of green juicy… Continue reading Of trees and birds
