Who’s on the Lord’s side?

Are you my brother or my enemy? These days it is hard to tell! So many profess the same faith, but their actions are as diverse from yours as the many colours of the rainbow. It is hard to know who is really sincere, who’s right and who’s […]

Did I do that to you?

I am just realising how unthinking, inconsiderate and clueless most people are when it comes to babies.  So many think that it’s not only okay to reach out and touch a new born, but that it is wanted and good manners!  Well, if you ASK first, and WASH […]

You Are My Wealth

The other day, while I was praying, I said this to God and was taken aback by how profound it was.  Until I confessed it, I had never really thought of God that way before.  I mean, He is my Wealth!  How many people can say that and […]

Great Expectations

Do you remember that catchy song from the 80s by Surface that goes “only you can make me happy”?  It was one of my favourite songs at the time, and summed up my perspective on love, or better yet – romance.  The claim is that you can’t be […]

The Search Is Over

“Are You the Coming One, or do we look for another?” (Matthew 11:3) John the Baptist might have been the first to ask this of Jesus, but he certainly wasn’t to be the last!!!  After coming to a personal revelation of Jesus Christ, hearing the very words of […]

I Will Not Remember Your Sins

“I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; And I will not remember your sins” (Isaiah 43:25). It is hard to believe that God made such a statement, because it seems like something He cannot do!  I mean, He is the all-knowing […]

Eyes On The Prize

“Nevertheless, I have this against you, that you have left your first love” (Revelation 2:4). It is such a wonder how we so easily lose our way, break the focus and become derailed, even though we remain active. It is just that we are actively going the wrong […]

As Gracious as God

The true test of love is the willingness and, ultimately, ability to forgive every conceivable wrong of the beloved. To enter into a sacred and binding commitment with another soul, one must be ready to become as gracious as God!

A Firm Hand

A firm hand is not a violent hand, Nor an aggressive one… A firm hand is a guiding hand, And a persuasive one. It cuts through the resistance of folly And instructs in wisdom. It endures the many testings of doubt, And instills faith in love… It inspires […]

Blessed in the Valley

“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I’ll fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me ” (Psalms 23:4) I feel overwhelmed, challenged and on the brink of failure. I have so much to do, […]

Inescapable Favour

It is good to know who you are in Christ, but even if you don’t or forget, you can’t run away from God’s favour.  This is a lesson I learnt recently, and God used my own family to teach me. I thank God that for as long as […]
