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…

The Stronghold God builds in his Children

The stronghold in us. You know I have 5 kids, and one of my prayers goes like this, “Thank you God for giving my kids such faithful, friendly, fun and fantastic pastors to lead them. I love you, thank you.” I tell my kids, “You know you can pray like that too and your prayers…

Wonderful

Today I have been reminded again of the wonderfulness of God. How worthy he is of all our praise. How amazing it is just to give him all the glory. No matter what we face. No matter what we need. Everything falls into it’s rightful place when we approach the throne of God with thanks…

What I Would Say To Me

If I were my friend, I would say….. It’s ok, it’s just a day. Keep moving towards tomorrow, you’ll find a way. Sleep? Who needs it anyway? All you need, is to trust, and pray, God’s plan is well underway. Enjoy today. Jeremiah 17:7-8 says, But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose…

1 Samuel 7:11

You may be encouraged today by these previous posts, also on the topic of deliverance from idols and returning to the Lord; God and Pornography, Satisfaction, and Sleep (My Idol).

Trust – Without It, We Bully.

I was chatting to one of the teachers at the Montessori Playgroup I attend with my son on Wednesdays, asking for some advice and she said to me, “Well I wish I’d never yelled at my kids, but I did.” She went on, “I vividly remember finding out, that the most perfect Mum at school,…

King Google

Who is your King? Who rescues you out of all your calamities and disasters? King Google? King Dad or Queen Mum? King Friends? King Husband or Queen Wife? King Pastor? King Doctor? King Shrink? King Boyfriend/girlfriend?  King Expert? King Myself? 1 Samuel 10:19 says, But you have now rejected your God, who saves you out of all…
