Able To Perform In 2019

Tomorrow the paid plan for this website is coming to an end. Will I continue to blog? Did I decide about the future of this site yet? Yes, I sure did. Following is a quick update.

First of all, a dear friend and faithful reader mentioned that she had almost deleted last post’s email because there was an “unknown” name above the title of my last post. Some of the readers who signed up only recently don’t know me by my pen name (Mirjam Fels), yet. I’m sorry about the confusion this has cost. I’ve now changed it back to Able To Perform which suits it much better anyway.

Second, note please that in the coming weeks I will be sharing excerpts of The Christian Homemaker – Blog here but they will eventually disappear from this blog. I will keep on posting about biblical womanhood and Christian homemaking but in the future it will all happen on my new blog, meaning, if you enjoy the posts, which I hope you will, please sign up at the website over there to receive them by mail. Thank you!

Last but not least, Able To Perform is going to continue, however, using slightly different categories and offering less, occasional posts. In 2012, its main focus had been on home education and writing. It’s time for it to stick to its purpose again.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog!


Able To Perform

I still remember the gifts my grandparents gave me on the day of my confirmation in 1982 — a leather hymnal with gold edges that came in a gift box, a white handkerchief and a bookmark.

Thirty-five years later, the hymnal and handkerchief are gone but I still have the bookmark. On the back of it is says von deinen Großeltern 1982 (from your grandparents 1982). I haven’t paid much attention to the saying on the front of it until a few years ago. That time the sentence Was Gott verheisst, das kann Er auch tun (God is able to do what He has promised) had a major impact on my life.

I started my journey as a “Christian by tradition”. In the 90s I became a flying high newborn child of God. Trials and hardships came into my life and for a while I felt drawn to the health-wealth-preaching. It wasn’t so much the health nor the wealth I needed but the faith of knowing that God is great and able to do anything — something I had lost in my earlier childhood years.

During a tough time in my life I came across this bookmark again. I read the saying on it, looked up the verse and kept on reading. That was so soothing and so full of healing! I treasure this bookmark very much. Today it is back in my Bible to remind me daily to be fully convinced that God is able to do what He has promised.
