  • No bargain basement in God

    No bargain basement in God

    This period after Christmas is a good time to hopefully find a bargain in the sales. I did a bit of on line shopping myself yesterday. This is unusual for me as I really, really don’t like shopping (it’s up there with going to the dentist) but I do like to find a bargain. I […]

  • Sportsmanship….#TestimonyTuesday

    One of the stories from the #Commonwealth Games that caught my eye and I wanted to share with you was this one: In an incredible act of sportsmanship, the Malaysian Badminton coach offers and gives his shoes to the opposing Jamaican Badminton player. The Jamaican’s shoes had been damaged during the match and he would […]

  • Sharing is caring..

    The story of Jonah in the bible is an amazing story to me. It was an early bible story that I was taught as a child, but at that stage just it’s simple outline- Jonah runs away from God, big storm, he’s thrown overboard, a whale swallows Jonah, after 3 days the whale spits him […]

  • The Narrow Gate

    We are away in the Derbyshire Dales at the moment and the countryside is beautiful. We visited last year and I was inspired by their narrow gates to write this post. So, to get to the inspiration for this post..the narrow gate. On our first evening here, we ventured for a walk and discovered the […]

  • By Invitation Only

    My dear children – you are all children in my sight, dear and beloved to me. How my heart aches for you. How my heart longs to take you in my arms and remove the burdens you are carrying.   I am here – just waiting for you. Waiting to lift you up in my […]

  • The Valley of Decision

    As we enter into Holy Week, I want to re-post this for those who don’t yet know Jesus as Lord and Saviour. I urge you – Please don’t leave it too late to choose to accept and follow Jesus. If you are in that valley of decision, then I pray that this Easter, the reason […]

  • Joseph – Hero of the Faith (5)

    As we have already seen in the previous post, Joseph demonstrated patience and long suffering through his troubles, which is a fruit of the Holy Spirit of God. Joseph also showed that there was no bitterness or desire for vengeance in his heart even after all that had happened to him. When the opportunity arose […]

  • #Testimony Tuesday- Bill’s story – Lessons from my Father

    #Testimony Tuesday- Bill’s story – Lessons from my Father

    It’s my #TestimonyTuesday post and I wanted to share part of my dad’s story. His full name was William Easton Third but everyone called him Bill. Dad was a true inspiration to me. He was born into a poor but happy home in Edinburgh. He lived in a tenement building in Leith which I understand […]

  • A Privileged People (Pt Two)

    Yesterday’s post A Privileged People (Pt One) was about the Privileges we enjoy as followers of Jesus Christ. Today’s post is a reminder that with such Privilege comes responsibility. We have responsibilities in our daily walk with Christ in how we behave and how we represent Jesus. A disciple is someone who is learning to […]

  • A Privileged People (Pt One)

    The dictionary defines Privilege as an advantage that only one person or group of people has, usually because of their position or because they are rich. As followers of Jesus we are privileged people. We are individually privileged and also belong to a group of privileged people – the church or body of believers of […]
