Prodigal

As I left another day's work, I quickly snapped this photo. So beautiful, yet so tormented. A bit like every human being I've ever met. All fighting our own inner demons on some level. https://youtu.be/EI5jsa3D5xo I love this song for the hope it provides to people who (like me) once deviated from their path. I … Continue reading Prodigal

Perfecting the zig-zag

The journey we have called life is never straight forward. I came across this post and felt the need to share it. Do you know what your calling is? By faith will you obey? I’m yet to discover mine. But I’m listening and waiting. Thanks to “The sun shineth again”.

The Sun Shineth again!

“By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going.” — Hebrews‬ ‭11:8‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Life, as you may already know, is full of many uncertainties. Even those that live a well organized lifestyle will agree that there have been moments when life served them with the unexpected regardless of how much planning and preparation that was invested.

The verse from Luke popped into my head first and it's … Continue reading The golden rule.

Christ is risen from the dead…

Grace that now is extended to those who believe and confess. All for us. Then as was predicted years … Continue reading Christ is risen from the dead…

God hears us.

It's a beautiful Autumn day today. No sun but lovely and warm. This is my lunch time view today. This morning I wrote down the wrong verse! So being me, I had to go and read it. It was 1 John 5:14. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the … Continue reading God hears us.

3:16 – Believe.

My littlest little person woke me up last night for a drink. On my way, I checked the time. It was 3:16am. It reminded me of: "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send … Continue reading 3:16 – Believe.

Faith

The sermon at church this morning covered this part of Mark. Our pastor spoke about how serious leprosy was in those days, how anything touched by a leper became unclean. How lepers were completely ostracized from society. And how it was believed that sin caused leprosy. How lonely it must have been for anyone affected! … Continue reading Faith
