Trust

I don’t trust myself, I don’t trust others but I do trust the Lord. When we put ourselves and others into the hands of the Lord,  we can trust him with ourselves, and we can trust him with others. Trusting the Lord takes the pressure off people, and acknowledges the  power of the one who…

Y?

This is a short post because I have a lot going on this week with my talk coming up. But I woke up the other morning with this  little revelation and I thought I’d share. I was thinking about a decision one of my kids is making. Well, maybe I was dreaming about it because,…

Proverbs 10min. Challenge (Proverbs 11)

Proverbs 11! This is so exciting because it means I’m over a third of the way through the Book of Proverbs! How often do you start reading through the bible with wonderful intentions but circumstances get in the way and you stop? Today I want to take a moment to cheer myself on and celebrate…

What’s Your Flavour?

Today I’ve reached Step 5 in my writing a kids talk process. It’s been a week of preparing this talk on John 15:5. Yesterday’s post Bearing Fruit as a Christian has links to all the other posts, in which I researched this outline in much more detail. Step 5 is; Write an outline of what you want to say…

Bearing Fruit as a Christian

This is day 5 in my kids talk preparation series. Today I’m still on Step 3; Discover things I don’t know and add them to what I do know, to build the whole picture of what Jesus meant in John 15:5. I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and…

John 15:5; Who, What, When, Where, Why?

As I’ve said in my earlier posts this week, Abiding in Jesus and How I Write a Kids’ Bible Talk, I am writing a Kids’ bible talk on John 15:5, and you, lucky things, are helping me organise my thoughts! Thank you. Today I am tackling a couple of Steps in the process I discussed…

How I Write a Kids’ Bible Talk

So, like I said yesterday, there is a children’s talk to be written, and soon. (Help!) I have been writing kids bible talks for about 15 years now. I was so privileged in my 5th year of knowing Christ, to get a job in a Christian Community school. One of my roles as a classroom…

Abiding in Jesus

We are officially returned from holidays, after the most beautiful time. Thank you everyone for your well wishes and prayers, they were answered abundantly. My husband commented while we were away that he loves camping because, “It grounds you again.” We have been earthed. Did you know that ‘they’ say we should spend time everyday…

Proverbs 10 min. Challenge (Proverbs 10)

Proverbs 10 is a great resource for life. It is for the whole body. Our personal body and the body of Christ. It gives action and their consequences. If we are wise we will learn from it, heed it’s warnings, live by it’s advice and reap it’s rewards. I almost went mad deciding how to…
