Religion or Relationship

Do you try to be a good person or do you aim to please God?  Tired of following rituals and traditions to earn God’s approval?  I’ve tried for many years to be a good person, following rituals and traditions in order to be right with God.  What I’ve learned is, these things give me religion but God wants a heart to heart connection with me through a relationship with His Son Jesus.

In Search of Change

Each New Year, I renew my commitment to know God more and to follow him deeper.  I’ve learned though that following God isn’t about me having it all together, it is about God having it all together.  People often tell me they can’t come to God because their lives are a mess and they don’t have it all together.  Then, there are some who say they have it all together so they don’t need God.   The encouraging truth is, God brings order to our messes and he is the only one who has it all together!

Can't Get Enough

Can I share a little secret with you?  I LOVE ice cream!  Yes, I do.  I could eat it everyday a few times a day!  In fact, when our family first arrived in America we had ice cream every night because it was a new treat for us.  We couldn’t get enough of it for the first few years.  The frosty upstairs apartment with icicles on the inside of the windows did not hinder our daily consumption of frozen dairy!  So, we bundled up and ate it by the furnace in the living room.  Being so mal-nutritious from 9 months in the Malaysian refugee camp, we had room to put on a few pounds!

Are you there God?

Have you ever wondered if God really hears you?  Have you cried out to him because life just doesn’t make sense or seems unfair?  Maybe the pain is unbearable or the weight you are carrying gets heavier by the moment.  Have you ever been so angry and frustrated at God that you question his goodness or seriously doubt his love for you since you feel so alone?  Perhaps, you find it hard to believe he is all knowing and powerful because your prayers are still unanswered.  Are you losing hope and close to giving up on God?

The "real" me

I’ve known Jesus for 19 plus years now and many of those years I spent hiding from him.  I was afraid of what He may really think of me if he truly met the real me.  Would he see me as a fraud masquerading as one of his followers.  My greatest fear was to be known by those in the church because I was certain I would be rejected if people knew all of me.
