    Understanding..

    “And He (Jesus) opened their understanding, that they might comprehend the Scriptures.” Luke.24.45 Understanding what we read or hear is so important. We can have knowledge but no understanding. When I look at a car engine I can know some of the different components, but I am not a trained mechanic or engineer who understands…

    Deception – The Gibeonites Story

    It’s #ThrowbackThursday and so I thought today I would publish one of my most regularly viewed posts which just so happens to be (to my pleasant surprise) this story from the Old Testament.

  • Credibility

    Credibility

    “Many have undertaken to draw up an account of the things that have been fulfilled among us, With this in mind, since I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, I too decided to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus, just as they were handed down to us by those who…

  • #TestimonyTuesday – Life Verses

    #TestimonyTuesday – Life Verses

    This week at church we did something different. Our Pastor asked us to share our “life verses” or some people call them their “north star verses”.

    Plumb line

    If you search for the definition of a biblical plumb-line then the reference to the book of Amos will often come up. “Thus He showed me: Behold, the Lord stood on a wall made with a plumb line, with a plumb line in His hand. And the Lord said to me, “Amos, what do you…

  • Praying People

    Over the last few weeks, I have been considering how meditating on and confessing the names of God, discovering the character of God (which is revealed through His names) can help us in our times of prayer.    Other things which can also help our prayer life to develop are: ATTITUDE; – The word “confess” comes from…

  • Seeing but not seeing..

    They say familiarity breeds contempt. We see what we often expect to see rather than what is actually there especially in familiar environments. My husband will often say to me “noticed anything different”? That’s a statement that always brings a certain amount of blind panic to me. There’s obviously been a change which I’ve missed.…

  • Simple Instructions

    Did you collect stickers as a child? These are two stickers I put in a bible given to me in 1976 by Glenrothes Baptist Church when I was a young girl. I’ll stress the young 😊 Two simple instructions: 1. Follow Jesus 2. Read the book of God If you asked me for advice today…
