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. And as I am having a cup of coffee with some yummy German Christmas Cake (or “Stolle” as we call it ☺️) I am also surrounded by warm candlelight… Continue reading My favorite Christmas light

The well-watered garden

I love it when God speaks with pictures that I can relate to and helps me understand what He wants to teach me. This week I came across two similar pictures in His Word that encouraged me to stay close to Him. “The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a… Continue reading The well-watered garden

Empty Jars

I went to a wonderful Women‘s Conference today and would like to share one teaching that touched me and spoke right to my heart. It’s about a story from 2. Kings where a woman who had just lost her husband and is about to loose her two sons who are supposed to be taken from… Continue reading Empty Jars

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…

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

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…?

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

Cooperate with God

Recently God led me through an open door that not too long ago I thought was not at all for me. The way He orchestrated this journey is now really fascinating to me and taught me something about walking with God that I’d like to share with you. First God prepared me while I was spending… Continue reading Cooperate with God

Expectant hearts

I am just coming back from a little walk with God. When I left I was discontent and restless in my soul but now I am full of joy and peace. Let me tell you what happened on the way. The day today is beautiful and when I started walking into the forest area near to… Continue reading Expectant hearts

Enter His rest

Lately when I look around it seems like all I see is “higher, faster, further”. It seems wherever I look it’s about performance, activity, staying busy and entertained. People are overloaded with tasks, demands, goals and activities. It’s a phenomenon that I not only see in the workplace where people are busy with one meeting chasing… Continue reading Enter His rest
