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.

A Message In The Handiwork

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.

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 […]

Continuing my reading in Zechariah I came across this verse. This is a vision given to Zechariah about Joshua the High Priest. It is also a picture for all of us. Zechariah 3:3,4 (NKJV) 3 Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments and was standing before the Angel. 4 Then He answered and spoke to those who stood […]

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 […]
