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…

I Am

I Am – A Worship Song Moses saw the firelight The burning bush The flames were bright the fire bright did not consume No ash no char No smoky plume. “So what’s the meaning?” Moses said. “Take off your shoes And lift your head It’s holy ground.” “Who are you Lord?” Then came the voice…

Our Journey With The Father

Sun, sand, a view, and a day off together! What more could I ask? Last Friday my husband and I walked over the northern headland from Newport to Bilgola Beach. We took our suddenly-adventurous son, who turned three the same week. The walk was significant, our first, almost-date in the day time (we only took one…

Children of God

When you’re a mum, you need to be all things to all men. Some days I’m good at it some days I’ve got work to do. But God gives me a way and a why. The way is to understand my freedom. I am not slave to anyone, I belong to no-one. I am free but I choose…

God is not Afraid

Photo by Josh Willink from Pexels It hit me the other day that God is never afraid. Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control; God can have all of them all the time because he is not afraid. On the other hand we fear things. What are you afraid of? I…

I May Be Small …..But God

God uses small things. He used Moses’ staff to part the water of the red sea, he gave Sampson the jawbone of a donkey to kill a thousand men, Gideon could only take an army of three hundred men against one hundred and thirty-five thousand Midianites, David took five stones and a sling to defeat…

When God Whispers

The past two weeks I have had to whisper. The tiniest, in your ear whisper that no-one but that ear can hear. Usually I have a loud voice, I was a school teacher in a past life and I could call a child back over 200m away. I have a loud singing voice and I…
