I’m Totally Out of Control!

The bible is amazing. If you stop to read Luke Chapter 5 right now you’ll get even more out of this blog post, there is so much power in the word of God. Luke Chapter 5 begins with the story of the miraculous catch of fish, includes healing, forgiveness of sins, the making of disciples…

When We Hate (Part 2)

Photo by Ylanite Koppens from Pexels Yesterday I introduced Part 1 of this bible investigation into “hate”. That my son and I have done in response to very strong feelings he was having towards someone. Yesterday I talked about what God hates and what he calls us to hate. Then we looked at what he…

When We Hate (Part 1)

My son and I have been doing a bible study on hate. It was brought on by the surprisingly fierce words, “I hate…” that came out of his mouth earlier this year. It’s been a big thing to work through and doing the study has rebuked me thoroughly as well. Here is what we have…

Proverbs 10 min. Challenge (Proverbs 1)

Putting aside the fact that my husband is gorgeous and no man comes close, I would say part of our secret is…

Satisfaction

Twice in one day, last week, God spoke to me about finding our satisfaction in Him. There was a moment when I was imploding. I could feel the pressure building inside me. It was the end of school holidays, I had not prayed or even sat quietly for days. It was singing, by one of…

Crowned (Part 2)

Every year, our church holds an extravagant dinner; a banquet and ball. Very Luxe. It is completely free to attend. I have never attended, in the six years we have been at our church, simply because I do not own a fancy dress and the thought of organising a babysitter and driving to the city,…

Crowned (Part 1)

My daughters and I were part of a photo shoot for our women’s conference at  church on the weekend. The theme of the conference, in October, is “Crowned” and the photo shoot brief was, “Come dressed royally!” For people with absolutely no social life this was tricky and we were not the only ones who…
