Talking Straight

Recently I was asked to write on, “Why do I trust people?” I simply started with…why wouldn’t I? We have lost the ability to take people at their word, or to put it as James 5:12 says, our yes should be yes, and no…

God Never Tempts Us

It can be so easy to blame God when we are facing circumstances in our lives that go beyond our understanding. “God’s tempting me” is not His way, and therefore, we need to realise that hard times are apart of life, along with uncertainty,…

Ignoring God

I remember the day so vividly because God made a point to me. I was given a word from Him, to give to the person stood beside me, but I was apprehensive… What if I hadn’t heard God right? What if the person rejected…

Making Plans

I love to plan; there is something about dreaming that just fills me to the brim. Although there was a time where I used to drive Kieren nuts – apparently because I am adorable 😉 – but I would have to have the “What…

Prayers of Faith

This morning, God reminded me of the circumstances that were changed through radical prayers, by people just like you and I. The rain that never fell The sun that stood still The fire from the sky All from individuals who prayed with faith that…

No labels

It can be very easy sometimes to look to our left or right and become distracted or discouraged with other people’s callings. We can then get preoccupied with labelling them in our head. Or maybe even justify to God why that should be us….

Make the darkness tremble

“You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror.” James‬ ‭2:19‬ If the demons tremble at the thought of Jesus, imagine what we can do in His…

Don’t wait to speak to God

God is always with us but the question is, do we listen? Reading James this morning, put things into perspective for me. James isn’t one to hold back with Gods truths and the scripture below really challenged me. James 4:4 “Anyone who chooses to…

Mirror of truth…

It is important to listen to what God says through the sermons, podcasts, books etc. but it is much more important to obey it. There are so many of us that know so much of the word and yet we do not apply it…

The crown of life…

God’s crown of life is not to be glorified and honoured here on earth, but the reward of eternal life with Him in Heaven. The way to this…loving God and staying faithful to Him, even when under pressure.

Scripture that packs a punch

Sometimes the scripture we read really challenges our lives. Reading this today, being honest, the words filth and evil made me cringe. My instant thought was – ”that’s not me” and then I skim past the scripture. But it has the power to change…

Living in humility

God is not trying to controlling us but rather he wants us to trust him and receive His grace and love in fullness. We can’t live in a realm of “double-mindedness” – to claim that you trust God but find your security in what…
