Speak Truth In Love

I am sick and tired of listening to so much crap about this verse that I just can’t NOT write about it anymore. I’ve been postponing it for a bit over a year now. First because I wasn’t ready to talk about it in a loving way. I was just too offended and angry to do so. (And, obviously, one cannot talk about speaking truth in love unlovingly.) But this topic...

PREACHING THE GOSPEL

PREACHING THE GOSPEL

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.” (Romans 1:16)   The gospel IS the power of God that brings salvation to those who believe in it. Let me say it again… It is POWER. It brings SALVATION. It works through FAITH. I think we have been...

AMOR INCONDICIONAL

A gente vê escrito em camisetas. Aparece em letras de músicas e em historias. Não era a primeira vez que eu via estas duas palavras uma do lado da outra. Mas ainda assim elas me pegaram de surpresa. Nem sei direito onde foi que vi… Ou ouvi… Não lembro… Mas lembro do impacto com que elas bateram no meu peito, como um avião que faz um pouso...

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE

It’s written on t-shirts. It’s sung and mentioned in stories. It’s not a new couple of words I hadn’t seen put together many times before. And yet, it just crushed me the other day when I saw it somewhere… Or heard… I can’t remember exactly, but I do remember the waves of thoughts it caused in my head as if a plane had crashed in still waters. I think...

He Led Me To The Desert

He led me to the desert to be tempted He called me into the fire to be tested For under the heat of the sun I sweat my sins away And through fire I am purified He led me to the desert to overcome He called me into the fire to be renewed For in my desperate thirst I seek Him desperately And fire consumes the old oil for the new one to be poured He led me to the...

Ninguém Orou Por Mim

Acho que todo mundo já deve ter passado por isso. Você foi à igreja com expectativas de receber uma palavra especial, uma oração poderosa, ou uma palavra de encorajamento e, ao invés disso, o contrário aconteceu. A pregação foi meio “xoxa”, o profeta entregou palavras pra todo mundo menos pra você e quando você foi à frente receber oração, o...

It Rained On My Wedding

Well, it did rain. And it only stopped when we said “ok, let’s stop, I think we’ve got enough pictures.” Then it stopped. On the way to the reception we saw the icy drops getting smaller and smaller until it was finally over. We looked at each other, at the photographer, and at the young man who was helping coordinate the event and laughed. The Lord...
