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…

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…

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…

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…

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,…

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…

6 Things to Believe in This Christmas

Sometimes, we just need a little reminder, just how good, God truly is. Jesus really is the reason for this season, and so, no matter how we celebrate this time of year, let’s not forget to come and truly adore Him – for who…
