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…

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…

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…

Are We Pushy Parents?

For most of us, we don’t want what we have been given in life, and we want what others have received Desire, lust, and even to covet, are talked about in the Bible because God knew that our soul would want what it didn’t…

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…

Stop

I realised years ago that I no longer had to pretend to have it all together…that a scary thought, but it transformed my life. Most of us will know what I mean when I say that I was a professional pretender. I had a…

Don’t Doubt God

The serpent revealed his master plan in the Garden of Eden but unfortunately, we still fall for this question, time and time again But I fear that somehow your pure and undivided devotion to Christ will be corrupted, just as Eve was deceived by…

I am Who I am

Have you ever looked at another person and wished for something they have? And I don’t mean when you were five-years-old either! It could be as simple as their clothing style? Or, their hair colour? Maybe their laugh is not as loud as yours?…

When God Fights For You

In Joshua chapter six, this is the moment when the walls of Jericho came tumbling down after Joshua’s army marched around the city walls seven times. You then read how they shouted as loud as they could, as instructed by God. How beautiful is…

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…

Loving Those You Hate

Ok, so this Scripture is one that we don’t like because it challenges us to our core. Enemies could be defined as a family member, ex-best friend, rivalry gang member, different culture, etc. – the list could go on. But the point Jesus was…
