Learning how to ride a bike 04 August 2017

We have all been there: the beautiful moments, but also the tough times in life. We sometimes call them storms. One person will say they are “spiritual battles”, yet another will see them as just another aspect of life. I have discovered that everyone, at some point in their life, will go through storms. We aren’t the only ones though, Jesus also experienced storms. Literally! Yet He conquered them again and again and stood above them. I once heard someone say: “Jesus stood above the storms, because He didn’t let them in”. I thought that was so awesome!

Believing is trusting 04 August 2017

Trusting someone means that you believe you can count on that person. Giving someone your trust can be difficult, especially when you have a hard time giving up control. The fact that believing is closely intertwined with trust is well illustrated in the following story: There was once a tightrope acrobat that wanted to cross from the top of one high building to the next. Hundreds of people gathered to see the spectacle, no one wanted to miss out! As the acrobat was preparing to walk the tightrope, he called out to the crowd: “How many of you believe I can do this?” The crowd responded with enthusiasm; a show of hands went up in the air. The acrobat asked again: “How many of you believe I can do this?” And again, the crowd cheered and they all raised their hands.
