FOG LIGHT 
Did you ever think about being the light on a foggy day? We usually think about being the light in the dark, but how about being a fog light? Foglamps are very important during poor visibility resulting from precipitations like rain, fog, dust or snow. On a grey day like today, I am reminded that things are not always black and white, our friends and family, our citys and neighbourhoods aren’t always completely in the dark, but we all have those foggy days where we don’t see clearly because disappointement, lack of energy, confusion, hurt or resentment creep in. Foglamps have a unique beam! Do you know what light to turn on for your friend?
.
.
““You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.”
The Bible - ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5:14-16

Wide eyed and mystified
May we be just like a child
Staring at the beauty of our King.
-Amanda Cook- .
.
Your eye is a lamp, lighting up your whole body. If you live wide-eyed in wonder and belief, your body fills up with light. If you live squinty-eyed in greed and distrust, your body is a dank cellar. Keep your eyes open, your lamp burning, so you don’t get musty and murky. Keep your life as well-lighted as your best-lighted room.”
‭The Bible - ‭Luke‬ ‭11:33-36‬ #wideeyed

Yesterday morning I sat on the couch and my eyes began to wander! I saw rays of light dancing on the wall and fascinated like a little child I started to chase them! I walked through every room looking for those sun kissed places, i might have danced just because the moment was so perfect,  and anyone who knows me knows- i am not a dancer 😉 but it was in that moment I realized it is the same with God! When his light and presence falls on our life’s, mundane things become glorious, hidden things are illuminated, impossible things start to happen! This is why I want my life framed by his presence and marked by his light!
.
. “I’m asking GOD for one thing, only one thing: To live with him in his house my whole life long. I’ll contemplate his beauty; I’ll study at his feet. That’s the only quiet, secure place in a noisy world, The perfect getaway, far from the buzz of traffic. God holds me head and shoulders above all who try to pull me down. I’m headed for his place to offer anthems that will raise the roof! Already I’m singing God-songs; I’m making music to GOD.”
The Bible - ‭‭Psalm‬ ‭27:4-6‬

COFFEE & PEOPLE

Oh and we enjoyed way to many coffees, great food and loved catching up with some friends and meeting Hillsong Family along the way! 
But the best part is this: the flight home felt just as exciting, because we love what we get to do and be part of in our everyday life and that’s why we can‘t wait to be back home!

while i am waiting for the plane to take off and our holidays to kick in I am reminded yet again how important it is to finish strong! starting seems so easy compared to finishing strong! and I can‘t say I did finish strong in every area but I told myself again and again: hang in there! there is more to come! don‘t switch off just yet, give it your all! I believe the stronger we finish the better we can start again! And as I switch off the phone I won‘t just switch off - I will take time to dream of the days to come! #finishstrong

Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings. William Arthur Ward
.

On your feet now—applaud GOD! Bring a gift of laughter, sing yourselves into his presence.
Enter with the password: “Thank you!” Make yourselves at home, talking praise. Thank him. Worship him. 
For GOD is sheer beauty, all-generous in love, loyal always and ever.” ‭‭Psalm‬ ‭100

Yesterday night Joey and I got home - with full hearts, sore feet and a dirty bag of baptism towels! They were soaked in holy baptism water and not so holy liquids (aka beer, vomit and more) as they were used to clean the club floor after a spectacular sunday in church! we chucked them in the washing machine, shared some highlights and went to bed! And the machine worked its magic!

This morning we got up, put the wet towels in the dryer, drank coffee, shared some more highlights and just before we left home for work I got this bag of dry, beautiful smelling towels - ready to clean the next beautiful mess at church! 
And God spoke to me:
This is how you build the church and disciple people: 
from full to empty to full
from dirty and wet to dry and clean
from the miraculous to the ordinary 
from a miraculous day in church to doing laundry on a weekday before work! its all part of the miracle!

its never just one or the other: its always both and more!

happy monday fellas

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” Theodore Roosevelt

Lately I had many conversations with people who look down on themselves! Even though I also have moments or days where I feel inadequate I have the privilege of being surrounded by many people who show me or remind me to be brave! I hope those quotes and verses encourage you too:
.
.
.
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Can't wait to be with my Church Family tomorrow! No matter how good or exhausting my week was, no matter how full on or adventurous my Saturday is, Sundays in Church are always my highlight! Because to me Church is like @simonetter wrote so well: Church: where the worship lifts us, the word challenges us, the Holy Spirit impacts us & the fellowship encourages us!

It's so easy to rush through your day and feel like you don't have enough time! Today could have easily been one of those: my to do list was long and I was tempted to just get things done but I am so glad I took a moment to invite God into my planning and listen to what was on his heart ❤️ I got the impression to leave a generous margin and be open towards the people i meet along the way! So when I ran past an older lady I stopped and started a conversation and a minute later she walked off with a big smile on her face! When my new neighbour opened the door and offered a coffee I took time to get to know her and she turns out to be the most lovely girl who just didn't find a job yet and is longing for connection! I left inspired and encouraged to leave those margins more regularly! #youhaveenoughtime #enoughtoshare #leaveagenerousmargin
