Jesus over Housework

When I previously thought of the story of Mary and Martha (Luke 10:38-42), I instantly thought that Martha was wrong to have not sat down and just listened to Jesus, as her sister Mary did. But there is far more to this story than…

Dreaming until Reality

My smile is one of pure joy…this is over a decade of dreaming and prayers rolled into one hack It may seem trivial or ridiculous that I have waited over 10 years to do something that could have been booked at any point, but…

Nothing But the Truth

A few days ago I posted about integrity, but the other side of the coin, for me, is honesty. From a young age, my Daughter has known that as long as she told the truth – no matter what she had done – we’d…

This is the Way

Exactly five years ago, we left our home in England, along with all of our loved ones, to follow God into unfamiliar territory. New Zealand had never been on our radar, honestly, Kieren and I had dreamt of moving to Canada, after it being…

Priorities, with Christ

Don’t let the urgency of daily life, choke out the priority of our eternal one… How many of us stress, or worry about the things that we “need” to get done or the extra money we need? Not only that, but we are also…

Suffering Through the Generations

When I was an unbeliever, I used to think that a loving God shouldn’t hold grudges – especially to those who “don’t deserve it”. I mean, why should the third and fourth generation suffer for the mistakes of the family who have gone before…

Walking with Integrity

There are certain things within Proverbs that Solomon definitely wants to get across to us…one of them is, walking with integrity. I spoke briefly on it yesterday, but as I was meditating on the words God spoke to me throughout the day, I thought…

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…

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…

Are we Distracted?

There will always be noise from life. Whether it’s the sound of a bird in the morning, a car honking its horn, laughter, conversations, the busyness of work, life in general…and so on. So many of us develop a fear or doubt regarding our…

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…

Has the New Year Bubble Burst yet?

It’s the 4th January and usually, by now, a lot of New Year’s resolutions have started to dissipate. That sounds overly negative, but the truth is, we all have good intentions, yet there is always a reason “not too”, and most of the time…
