What it means to be a Child of God

Guest Post By Theresa Miller I did not grow up with a father who was there for me in the way a little girl needs her daddy. My parents divorced when I was eleven and my mom moved my five sisters and me two thousand miles away. I saw my dad only a couple of […]

How To Love While Letting Go

The story of the prodigal son, from Luke 15, has been on my heart lately; not because I have a child who has run away, but simply because I have a child who is growing up. I know that sounds so silly, almost insignificant, because that’s what children do — they grow up. In fact, […]

The Lure of Happiness

I read an Instagram post today that said, “Do whatever makes you happiest”. My first thought was, well that’s a nice sentiment, but then I thought, actually how sad it really is. Are they implying there are levels of happiness, by saying the “happiest”? Are they saying stay away from all things that may be […]

When Praying Is Hard

One quiet, early morning, I was watching the sun rise over the hills and through the trees. Everything around me was glistening as the rays of light danced upon the morning sky. I had taken this time to pray, though my heart was heavy with a burden for my friend.

She had just received some devastating news and was struggling to hold onto hope. It seemed like her world was falling apart, so I asked the Lord, “How do I pray for her, I don’t even know where to start?” Have you ever felt like that before? When we don’t know what to pray, the prayer guide Jesus gave His disciples is perfect for us today.

Or, because they are complete in such a short amount of time, we feel the need to stop and capture them? Though our mind is unaware, our soul craves the messages that God has woven into His daily light show. – Read more by my very first guest – Nichole J Suvar

The Long Wait

How often are we caught in between seasons? A season of the long wait…when we are not sure of the outcome? Perhaps something has happened and caused us to wilt or wither, perhaps even quite unexpectedly…and perhaps we dont even know how we will survive this.
I have found there is only one thing we can do when we are faced with a long wait…and that is HOPE.
I tried stress – it didnt work.. worry gets you nowhere and fear leads you deeper into the dark…Hope is your only chance to survive.

How To Find Your Way Back

After reading about the Priests in Malachi chapter 2, who had lost their way, it’s so refreshing to read that God tells the entire people of Israel, who have also turned away from His instructions, how to find their way back to Him. God is so good!! Chapter 3: 6-12 contains a few verses, possibly […]

Have You Lost Your Way?

Sometimes we don’t realise we are lost. Would you agree? Sometimes all it takes is a series of small steps in the wrong direction, perhaps a few steps towards apathy and then compromise slowly creeps in.  After a while we’re not walking in the way God planned for us, but the fade away has been […]
