There Is a River & And I Pray That Your Love May Abound All The More

There is a river that is unseen but it can be found. It is not only able to turn your attention away from the circumstances but also able to save your spiritual life.
(Psa 46:1-4)

We love those stories with happy endings in our lives when we know that I had nothing to do with it. But we know well: Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it. What was Paul’s prayer that was so important for the Holy Spirit? Could it be our prayer as well?

The fool waits with empty hands, while the wise ones have both the lantern, and the oil. Where do you look for freshness and how? The work of the Holy Spirit is mighty and manifold in our lives, but it is not transferable. Still, encouraging each other is an option – one that id made…

You Are A Soldier of Christ, Draw from Him!

We may miss what Christ has for us in store, only His grace gives us sufficiency. To get strengthened in Him you need to use and pass on what you’ve been given. Do not become a dead-end.
In a warzone one needs to learn to save up, to persevere through hardship. Though we do not belong here, we have victory through Christ. (2Tim 2:1-4, 2Cor 10:3)
