Conversations With God – Part 2

The leading came again to continue the series on Conversations With God.  This writing deals with the things that hinder our prayer time with the Father.  I’ve identified five key obstacles, but there could be more.  They are: Time; Insincerity; Pride, Doctrine and Language.  I will address each one […]

Martha and Mary at Christmas

“But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her” (Luke 10:42). There’s a story in the Bible about Martha and Mary (Luke 10:38-42), two sisters who loved the Lord Jesus.  Martha was a servant with her love.  […]

Conversations With God

I started this write up thinking that prayer should be the easiest thing to do, but by the end of it, I decided that there is a need to have ‘Conversations With God Part II’!  It is not that prayer is complicated, but because it is about COMMUNICATION, […]

My Flesh, My Enemy

I give you an inch, but you take a mile… I feed your need, but you grumble still! When I think I have you under control, You show you are crafty and untrustworthy. So I must deny you, and hear you not! For you do not suffer my […]

New Creature, New Covenant

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new (2 Corinthians 5:17). This article complements the long article on 1 Corinthians 7, titled ‘A Hard Teaching’.  There were some things said that need to […]

A Hard Teaching

Introduction Over the last few weeks, I’ve been meditating on Paul’s teaching and God’s commandments concerning marriage.  As one seeking answers, and also seeking to minister to others like myself who have pondered on this great topic, I desired to know God’s will on the matter.  Over 40 […]

To Him Who Is Worthy

Lover, you may have me I hold nothing from you, But the portion of my heart Which is the Lord’s – My First Love. And my spirit and soul Which are in His hands. My mind and will are mine To choose to love you everyday To walk […]

They Make Sense!

I feel like someone in love.  You know that feeling when every song you hear reminds you of the one you love, and you swoon because of the feeling in your heart, as each word rings true.  Those who are not in love don’t get it.  They hear […]

The Child Within

Today, I’d like to celebrate the child within. That’s the inner child that’s in everyone of us. We can truly relate to children, when we are able to tap into our inner child. We can not empathise with something we have no understanding of…and fortunately for us, we […]

The Sacrifice of Ministry

“When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things” (1 Cor 13:11). There comes a point in every person’s life when they know they have to […]

The Battle For The Mind

Below is something I read this morning by Rick Warren, in his daily devotional series.  The message is an old lesson, but still a major obstacle for many believers. We may want to relate with the world so that we can understand them and minister to them, but […]

Settling The Argument

We’ve had repeated arguments About this thing called ‘masturbation’… I’ve presented my thoughts And justified what seems natural, But my spirit is not succumbed. It believes in a higher way. God compels me to rethink each time. He shows me that masturbation Is but a brief pleasure… It […]

The Last Man Standing

If God was a comedian, He would be the last man standing!  He has such an amazing sense of humour, which is clearly evident in nature.  Sometimes, I can’t help laughing at what the Lord has done, or at myself when I wake up to the realisation that […]
