Getting back on our bike

God does not change. His ways are still the same as when He dealt with Israel and today dealing with our stubborn hearts. Our refusal to obey God leads to chastening or trouble coming our way.  But then  when an enemy is allowed to rise up and overcome us we then blame and hate on…… Continue reading Getting back on our bike

How the Centurion believed

Today I pondered before the Lord what it would take for the tough men in my town to believe in Jesus and immediately I was reminded of the Roman Centurion. So when the centurion and those with him, who were guarding Jesus, saw the earthquake and the things that had happened, they feared greatly, saying,…… Continue reading How the Centurion believed

Leaking heart

Many people have this problem. They may have been born with it and not know. They just think they…… Continue reading Leaking heart

God’s swearing habit

Lately the Holy Spirit has been bringing to my attention how God has a habit of swearing. For about a week now, phrases from Scripture would come floating by my mind without me trying to think them up.  The one I am impressed with is from Hebrews where the Spirit writes: Heb 6:12 that you…… Continue reading God’s swearing habit

At your wits end?

Our lives can sometimes seem to swing so far from the centre that we get terrified and lose all hope of finding our way back again.  We are all different and I don’t pretend to know why other people swing out wide on their particular journey. But I believe that God has all of our ups and downs in Him
