Abraham and Sarah’s Faithful Sex Life (Part 3)

We left Abraham in a pretty vulnerable situation on Tuesday (See This Post). Things were a bit sensitive. Abraham had submitted to God’s promise of a Son with a very personal act of dedication! He had declared that he (and all his household) would be circumcised! (Genesis 17:23) Not sure the staff would have been…

Maybe There is a Dagger in Their Heart…

I was praying for someone the other day, who is too easily offended. Everything hurts. Even a simple explanation of what they are doing is given on the defensive. At times it is exhausting to be with them. I was praying because I love them. As I prayed I saw this beautiful person with a…

Because You Love Me So

Some original song lyrics today. A couple of other mums and I used to dabble with song writing together. One day one of the girls said, “There are not enough laments!” The same day my other friend told us of her revelations from the book of Esther that week. When they left that afternoon I…

God Has A Story to Tell; Morning and Evening…

Today I am posting a prayer that I wrote for morning and evening. Someone once said in a talk that I heard that they literally took life one day at a time, by placing a one page per day desk calendar on their bedstand. They would wake up and ‘face the day’ and pray that…

Proverbs 10min. Challenge (Proverbs 12)

Proverbs 12 made me think of the ways in which God has transformed me over the course of my marriage. So I thought I’d include some anecdotes, with some verses. Sometimes people (including me before I knew Jesus) think that being spiritual means stepping out of reality. But it doesn’t. We are humans; we have…

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,…
