    Awe and Wonder…

    This time last year my talk at church was about “Christmas Means”. I had chosen as my theme: “Emmanuel which means God with us.” “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”Matthew 1:23 “Therefore the Lord himself will give […]

  • Envy

    Envy

    This is an excellent post by Manu and if you missed it the first time around then I recommend a read. It is about Moses, Miriam and Aaron and the effect of sibling rivalry, envy and unhealthy comparisons. God takes action. As members of one body and brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus we need […]

  • 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 […]

  • Joseph Hero of the Faith (8)

    Today’s post is no. 8 in my series on Joseph. We have already considered Joseph’s character and what was different about Joseph from his 11 brothers. Today is considering why Joseph’s brothers behaved as they did. If it is helpful here is the link to my earlier post on those behaviours Joseph Hero of the […]

  • Danger Danger

    The other morning I woke up thinking of the bible verses about Cain. The Lord warns Cain: “If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it.” Genesis 4:7 I had a […]

  • First Snow

    First Snow

    Don’t get toooooo excited but we woke up to our first snow of the winter today as a result of storm Arwen. It wasn’t very much but it was still snow. We don’t get much snow where I live so for the children it’s great excitement. Making snowmen, sledging and all the fun things then […]

  • Washed Clean

    I saw these lovely old posters in a railway station today and they reminded me of the incredible blessing of being washed clean of sin by the precious blood of Jesus. “Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.” Psalm 51:7 No man made soap […]

  • Today..God is speaking

    In the night, I was wakened with theses words “Today, if you will hear His voice DO NOT HARDEN your heart.” I felt a great stirring from the Lord to share these words with us all today so that we can ask the Holy Spirit to reveal the true condition of our hearts. The Lord […]

  • Condemnation

    I don’t know about you but I really don’t like the word Condemnation. Judges use it when passing sentences on an accused who has been found guilty and sentenced to a punishment which can include death. It must be a terrible thing to be condemned especially to death. The bible tells us that the wages […]
