Time to Rest

Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the LORD has been good to you. – Psalm 116:7 As Summer is on our door-step and hopefully some well needed time to break from all the demands around us I want to shower some healtht thoughts on you to prepare you for a great summer…

Desert Reflections

Last week I got back from a week´s trip to Dubai. My first time there and it was quite an experience. Apart from meeting old friends and making new friends I also got to see and experience the Dubai desert for a few hours as a birthday present from my church. I wasn´t quite sure…

Running away….and back

During my life as a Christian I’ve tried quitting or running away from God four times. The struggles that I faced just became too hard. On our walk here on earth we are called to follow Jesus towards the cross and to give up everything about ourselves and to crucify our flesh.

The richest in that village would own 65 times more than the…

Cross-road

A few days ago I was heading out to a suburb called Mölndal to have a talk with someone. Nothing unusual about that, but the difference this time was that I wasn’t going to be taking my car but be traveling on public transport. After arriving in the suburb I jumped off the bus and…
