"Being Smart"

It's a good thing to save some money, because when you need some you can borrow it from yourself, pay it back to yourself and you don't even have to pay interest.

"Dishonest money dwindles away, but he who gathers money little by little makes it grow" (Proverbs 13:11 NIV).

"Just follow my instructions"

"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path" (Psalm 119:105 NKJV).

We're moving to a bigger, much bigger town. In fact this new area is actually a cluster of 4 towns! Coming from Switzerland everything is bigger here in America. It still intimidates me and and to be honest with you, I don't really want to drive around without my husband, because the traffic, the highways and just the unknown makes me nervous. But I have to do it and I have to be brave doing it all by myself. I can't always rely on my husband to do the driving. However, the good thing is I don't have to do it alone! Our car has an inbuilt navigation system. All I  really have to do is plug in the address, listen to the voice, focus and look at the screen and follow the directions. It always brings me safely to my destination.

We live in a world full of uncertainties. If we rely on ourselves or dwell in the circumstances we end up being inferior, nervous and full of worries. But when we listen to the LORD in every moment He will guide us perfectly through everything. We will have victory as we focus on Him. It's really that easy and the benefits are wonderful: you loose fear of man, you are perfectly aligned with Him, He navigates you, you walk in His ways, you live with Him and others will realize it too and you will be an inspiration to so many. 

Are you insecure what today will bring? Know that the Holy Spirit is your inbuilt navigation from Heaven and there is nothing that you both cannot handle today.

Have a wonderfully blessed day!

About Safety

The safest place on this earth is to be tucked in Christ.

"For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God" (Colossians 3:3 NKJV).

The Need of Change

Let's face it, we all need some perfection. 

We can try to change ourselves through our own efforts or we can choose the high calling to be Christ-like. For some, because of their difficult and painful past, becoming more like Jesus is a very difficult and long process and for others it's easier.

Our starting point in life might not be the same but we are all on the path of the need for change if we choose so. 

"I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 3:14 NKJV).

About weakness

 "For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength." (1 Corinthians 1:25 NIV).

One day at work the LORD said to me "The weakness of God is stronger than human strength". I was happy to hear from Him and so I looked up this verse and found it in 1st Corinthians 1:25.

A few days later I had an eye-opening moment when the LORD spoke to me regarding making mistakes. I was getting ready to tell my co-worker lady about a mistake she made, when the LORD said to cover it up with my love. He said that there was no need for me to address it and correct her. He said "Just cover it up. Correct the mistake yourself and don't say anything and don't tell anybody". The way I grew up I would always want to make sure I tell somebody when they make a mistake, so they would learn. Hmm... I thought that was interesting and I right away recognized that this was the truth and this was God's ways.

After the LORD had instructed me on this subject, I myself made a mistake and the same co-worker lady corrected me on it. She addressed it and for a short moment I experienced a little contempt and rejection from her. It was an odd moment, since I had learned not to address mistakes but now I was corrected myself. With the knowledge and instruction from the LORD I was able to humble myself and silently receive correction and not retaliate or make excuses. Right then His word resonated and came alive in me about the strength of the weakness of God.

God is good and His instructions are wonderful! To walk in His ways and to reflect His nature is what is needed so that many walking in darkness will see His glorious light in us.

Have a wonderfully blessed day!

The Kingdom of God is at hand!

It's just amazing what you can make out of a worn-out tin can – useless, perhaps even rusty and battered, something that needs to be disposed. And now look at these items –made from of a seemingly useless tin can.

If you allow it, God can do the same in your life. Put your life in God’s hands, believe and trust in His son Jesus Christ. He binds up your wounds, He forgives you, He heals you, He restores your dignity and makes you a child of the King.

Next to the Tin Crowns I have just completed some more items that speak about the Kingdom of God being near. These are great witnessing "tools" that will start a conversation about Jesus.

Tin Crown Fridge Magnet.

 Tin Crown Broach.

 Tin Crown Business Card Holder.

Team work

You know you have a precious teamwork when your co-worker lady friend tells you something and you don't take any offense anymore. You are just purely glad she caught it and tells you.

Teamwork is complete and perfect when two people work hand in hand, not for the sake of themselves, but for the sake of serving others.

You can compare it to an egg: An egg is only complete when it has an egg yolk and an egg white that is safe in an egg shell.

And a complete teamwork is that safety.
