Blessed Through the Tough Times

Leah’s story is one that most of us can relate to in some way. She was told that she wasn’t beautiful and therefore, she needed to lie her way into marriage, because no one else would want her. Can you imagine the feeling of…

Good Things, Sometimes, aren’t Necessarily from God

It’s the ol’ cliche – is it good or is it God? Not necessarily the same thing, which, unfortunately, we can have a tendency to think. Why? Because we can assume that all good things come from above – James 1:17 even tells us…

Stepping with God

Sometimes, we can be in such a hopeless situation that when we let go and trust God, He can bring good out of our despair. Joseph’s success, came from him putting his faith in God and stepping into action. In other words, he trusted…

The New You

I love it when Scripture gets stuck in my mind. It’s like I can’t think of anything else, and I begin to think about what it is that God is trying to show. When Adam and Eve sinned, they were cast out of Eden…

Are We Pushy Parents?

For most of us, we don’t want what we have been given in life, and we want what others have received Desire, lust, and even to covet, are talked about in the Bible because God knew that our soul would want what it didn’t…

We Are Most Important

What makes you stop and pause at the wonders of creation in this world? Could it be a mountain that is topped with snow? A rainforest that opens up to a waterfall? An idyllic ocean view with the sound of the waves rolling in?…

The Altar

Who else loves this new song? And although all the lyrics are beautiful, it is the first line that captured my heart. There are hundreds of references to altars in the Bible but an altar was built to commemorate an encounter with God and…

Don’t Doubt God

The serpent revealed his master plan in the Garden of Eden but unfortunately, we still fall for this question, time and time again But I fear that somehow your pure and undivided devotion to Christ will be corrupted, just as Eve was deceived by…

God’s Faithfulness

I adore watching my Daughter’s relationship with God, grow. There are times when Sarai strengthens even my own faith with a simple Bible scripture or a reality check of God’s goodness. I love that she is growing up knowing the goodness of God! But,…

Resting like God

The Bible doesn’t say that God “needed” to rest; it simply says that He did. God was not tired or weary – it was a choice He made to, “cease” work and so, He stopped. How many of us struggle to stop working? To…

Even amongst the rust and dirt

Wherever we are, in the city or in the desert, in the house or in a field, God meets us there. Even if we are hiding, or running away, like Jacob, God knows where to find us. God’s promises are for everyone and although…

Jehovah Jireh – our provider…

God never intended for Isaac to be sacrificed, but instead looked to Abraham for his obedience to what had been asked. In Abraham’s eyes though, I can imagine this would of made no sense but God uses difficult experiences to strengthen our relationship with…
