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 […]

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 […]

There is always something to do. As a working mum, there are never-ending demands on my time and energy, so my to-do list never seems to get done! I know the struggle is real and I know the only way to get through each day is by being alone with God… Sometimes our souls need […]

TRUTH, LIES AND THE PROPHET AMOS

“Their lies led them astray, lies which their Fathers followed.” Amos 2:4 I want to share with you a little nugget I found in the Old Testament book of Amos. Throughout the book the prophet speaks to the people of Israel. He warns them of the coming punishment for despising the law and turning away […]

Abide in me

Happy New Year…. That almost sounds shallow this year…every time I said that to friends or family I felt as though it didn’t really say how I felt. I wanted to say something more like – Have a safe new year. Remember what is important this year. Stay close to Jesus and keep your eyes […]

A change in my perspective

So, I cried a little while loading the washing machine this morning… No, it wasn’t because I was frustrated by the never-ending pile of dirty clothes or the fact, that more washing meant more hanging out and more folding. It was because I was washing my son’s school uniform for the last time.  I finally […]
