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…

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…

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…

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,…

The Year of Trusting

This year has been one for the books… I have been asked, by God, to do things out of my comfort zone, but to also step out and trust Him in the journey He wanted me to go on He has been my hope,…

Are We a ”Know it All”?

I love this verse – it literally makes me laugh out loud There was a time in my life, that I was proud (and not in a good way) but I would want to be the “big fish in the little pond,” so to…

Fill ‘er Up!

My heart breaks when I think about the parable of the Ten Virgins, in the Gospel of Matthew. It’s sad to think that some Christian’s believe they have enough “oil” to see them through until Jesus returns, but in reality, some of us rarely…

Praising God

Do you ever look back, to where you have come from, within your life? How far God has bought you? The battles you have won? Or those that you thought you had lost? The Israelites wanted to remember what God had done for them…

Awakening

Our daughter recently introduced me to the Tauren Wells’ album, “Hills and Valleys” – I absolutely love it (which is a good thing, because Sarai wants to play it constantly) yet, I woke up this morning with a song on my heart. “God’s not…

Perspective

This morning, I felt lead to re-read Isaiah 40, but these two questions I asked in my mind and instantly I heard myself say, “no-one.” I loved how my Spirit instantly reaffirmed what I know to be true. In this chapter, Isaiah speaks about…

But if not…

As a young Christian, there were times when I would say, “God…if you are real…you’ll do ______, and give me that miracle.” And there were times that God was gracious to me. Yet, the times I saw nothing happen led me to go on…
