Why Do We Need God?

If everything is in the image of God, we may ask, “Why do we need the source of our image?” If you exist, so does the source of that image. Can you live without you? God is fine without us knowing He exists. But we benefit from knowing that our guide is there. We all…

When you long for the Lord from the depths of your heart and you are in a large crowd and so can’t get to Him, it can leave scars. These scars cannot be fixed by plastic surgeons. The scars are deeper when you seek the Lord’s attention but feel He does not know you exist.…

Weekend

Many people who enjoy what they do find weekends boring. There are no stock reports to look at, no one to call, and no adrenaline rush. Others work hard the whole week and then look forward to the weekend. If a weekday and weekend become the same, then you have nothing to look forward to…

Telescope

With the help of a telescope, we can see other planets and stars. We can see things from a distance. All these objects are always there, we just need an instrument to see them.

My Mistakes

As I have more free time, I am spending time contemplating all the mistakes I have made. Every one of them is as perfect as the so-called, not mistakes. Both have given me the same benefits. So, is there even such a thing as a mistake? I guess mistakes are created so we do not…

God’s Patience

By nature, I am impatient. Even though I know God’s grace will work, I still would like it to happen yesterday. God’s patience astonishes me. He never gives up hope in us. His grace takes time to work on us. He waits patiently to return our calls when we are desperately seeking His guidance. He…
