The Day I Met Jesus

The Day I Met Jesus

Frank Viola and Mary DeMuth have written a fascinating and insightful book about five women from the Gospels. The books is titled The Day I Met Jesus.

dying to my blog

I firmly believe that many people hold on to personal goals and pet projects long after they should have let them die a natural death. If we would let these things die, this would enable God to raise up something new in our life from the dust and ashes of the past.

Do We Suffer from the Illusion of Control?

Illusion of Control

We have very little control of anything in life. This brings great fear. So we try to control the fear by letting go of control. But this is simply another vain attempt to control. Just as we cannot control life, we cannot control control.

The only way out is to recognize that control is an illusion. We have no control. Life is a ride, and God is the builder of this ride, and Jesus is riding it with us, so we can just enjoy all the ups and downs of life.
