Rumination: A God who watches us struggle

God loves you. God has a wonderful plan for you, a plan to prosper you and never to harm you.

We hear that (from Jer 29:11) often. We even pray and claim this promise often.

But if God’s plan is to prosper us, why are we still miserable? Why are we still struggling? Why do we still feel crappy and pointless at times?

Not Everything will Go as Planned and It is OK

We take time to carefully plan things because we believe that our personal notion of order is what’s best for us.  We plan things by the minute to make everything as organized and as predictable as possible so as to minimize the element of surprise.

Meditating on God’s Power to Conquer Anxiety

Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great;
thou art clothed with honour and majesty.
Psalms 104:1

God is For Us

“Are You for us, or for our enemies?”  Joshua asked The Captain of God’s Army.  This is the question most commonly thrown at Christian Counsellors.  In this modern age where society attempts more than ever to get rid of God (or to paint Him in a bad light), this question becomes more relevant and more and more tempting to ask.

Living Through This Pestilence

Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth,
to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth.
Revelations 6:8

Before the Wuhan Virus updates, The Lord gave me the nudge to launch our Online Counselling services.  In my little mind, I thought that The Lord wanted Grace Counselling Centre to finally reach out to the world (I have been pestering The Lord about this).  Little did I know that it is to open up Christian Counselling resources to aid in this time of pestilence.
