Your Greatest Weapon

  When you hear of a family member or close friend who is going through a hard time, do you feel helpless and don’t know what to do? Have you offered to pray for them only to walk away feeling powerless because you just want to fix it but can’t? I used to feel like this until I discovered the greatest weapon that we have access to. The best thing is that you don’t have to buy it as it’s...

If Your Shoes Could Talk What Would They Say?

  “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of the messenger who announces peace, who brings good news, who announces salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.””   Isaiah 52:7 NRSV This title really made me think about the places that I have walked in my life. How about you? Where have your feet and shoes walked in your life so far? What joys and triumphs have they shared with you? My shoes brought me from a small...

Get to Know God in the Good Times

  Who Is God For You? This is a question that you might like to ask yourself and really contemplate when you are in a place of less turmoil. Our previous 6 years have been quite exhausting to say the least, and there were times when I was ready to walk away from the calling that God has placed on my life.

Forget The Past, Your Future Awaits!

When I forget to prompt her, she inevitably races while her head is to the side, looking to see where her opponents are. Granted, these are not professional races but this teaches me a lesson every single time I watch her. Comparison is a killer. Regrets will murder...

Joy To The World!

  Well, Christmas is almost upon us once again. This is my absolute favourite time of the year. How about you? The decorations are up in the shops, the Christmas Carols are playing (mostly) and it seems easier to start up conversations with strangers as you stand in line, waiting to be served with a trolley of soon-to-be wrapped gifts. We had a wonderful day at church this past Sunday as the children in the Children’s Ministry performed on stage...

Heaven Is For EVERYONE, but …..

  As you are readying yourself for this Christmas season, it is the perfect time to remember what it is that you are actually celebrating. Most of the western world, except for a some religions, celebrate Christmas. There are a few different versions of how it all started on December 25th but it’s the WHO we celebrate that should be our main focus. God decided, before the creation of the world (before the creation of anything in fact) that He would send Jesus down to...
