God is behind the curtains

I’ve told the story before of how four of us went to visit another friend in Australia. We had a great time together with lots of sports. Amongst others, we spent a week on a yacht near the Great Barrier Reef. We all had specific duties on the yacht and mine was to man the […]

God is our lifeline, our anchor

Life is filled with many uncertainties. Will the ties binding my marriage and relationships be strong enough to withstand pressure from all sides? Will I overcome this illness breaking down my body? I will I still get a salary by the end of this month or next month? Will I ever be able to settle […]

Unbreakable promises

God cannot lie. It’s not His style, not part of His story. If God lied, He would no longer be God. We’ll never be able to be God, because we’re saddled with a few faults – one of which is that sometimes we can’t live and speak the whole truth. It’s impossible for God, however, […]

Wrapped in loving arms

It’s early morning. We’re still in bed. It’s Monday morning and we’re wondering what this week will hold for each of us. I know the previous week was hard for my wife. She has so much on her pitchfork. She has to support so many people. She has so much to do. She has to […]

Shortest route to joy and peace

Sometimes I wish we could take out some parts of the Bible or simply skip over them. Those parts that grab you by the throat and stop you dead. Like these verses: 7-11Today, please listen; don’t turn a deaf ear as in “the bitter uprising,” that time of wilderness testing! Even though they watched me […]

God thinks the world of you

The army days weren’t fun, but they were good. I learned a lot about myself and about other people. And I also learned a lot about the army and how things work in the army. When you enter the army, you’re nothing. In the first six weeks of basic training, which felt like a year, […]

Jesus, still the greatest

The author of Hebrews drives the point home again and again. He wants his readers to hear the message again and again: There is no one like Jesus. He is the greatest. There is no one like Him in the whole universe. Do you see Jesus like that too? Well, after looking at all his […]
