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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Are you Kicking and Screaming through Life?

The Israelites went through the wilderness for 40 years, in what could have been, a week-long journey, but when things are taking longer than we initially expected, we need to seek God. Is there something that He is wanting to teach us? Maybe there…

Be a Barnabas

Barnabas’ name means “Son of Encouragement” and he most certainly stayed true to his given nickname! Barnabas and Paul fell out in the Book of Acts because Barnabas wanted to take John Mark on the second Missionary journey with them, but John Mark had…

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,…

Why I Need Jesus

I was thinking this morning of perfection and how unattainable that goal is within our lifetime. I had started to rattle things off in my mind that I knew I had done yesterday, that ultimately, went against God… Partaking in gossip…Realising I was still…

WOW moments

In Acts 2:43, people were in awe of God, AND THEN, miracles, signs and wonders were seen, as they watched God moved. The birth of a child, a reconciliation of family members, people coming to Christ, and baptisms are just a few amazing things…
