    Praying from a place of pain

    “Now about that time Herod the king stretched out his hand to harass some from the church. Then he killed James the brother of John with the sword.

  • Letting Go…Testimony Tuesday (Update)

    The wanderer has returned! You may recall my post about my youngest daughter (who set off for over 5 months on a solo back pack to the Far East) and my thoughts in Letting go…#TestimonyTuesday.

  • Expectation – What is my expectation

    On Thursdays, I publish something from my archives which has inspired or challenged me in the past. Today’s reminder was about Expectation and some questions I asked myself 2 years ago.

He was born into a poor but happy home in Edinburgh. He lived in a tenement building in Leith which I understand […]

  • God’s banqueting table

    For those who read yesterday’s post The Grand day out you will know that I am visiting Stratford Upon Avon today. Part of my treat is a dinner at a nice restaurant with my husband. We don’t often get that time to have a dinner on our own. It’s that time of life I guess […]

  • God will show Himself strong for you

    “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.” 2 Chronicles 16:9 I felt prompted to share this blog post again today. I believe there may be someone who needs to hear and be encouraged by […]

  • Apple of His Eye

    It’s #ThrowbackThursday and I feel led to repost this post from 2020 reminding us that we are so precious to God and we are indeed the Apple of His Eye. It’s good to be reminded that God has such great love for us that He never leaves us during the hard times. He is always […]

  • Don’t miss out!

Yesterday morning, I had the urge to contact my fellowship group to encourage them to attend the church service this morning or to watch the live […]

  • Curve Balls..

    Life has curve balls. For me, For you. For our families. For our friends. Even for Christians. Things happen, shocking news comes that we weren’t expecting to receive. Times of pain, hurt, disappointment, unsettling times of trouble. It shakes us, throws us off track and then we remember that we serve a God who knows […]
