If someone asked you what you wanted most for your children. Your automatic response would properly be, “Success!” As a follower of Christ, I’ve discovered things more important than success in and of itself. Our time on earth is short, and eternity is sure to follow. James 4:14 describes life on earth as, “a mist […]
Technology, both in its practical and technological form, has become an integral part of modern society. We use it in our daily lives not only for communication and entertainment, but also for learning and exploration. Yet, for many people, technology can also be a source of tension, particularly when it comes to matters of spirituality. With the power of the internet, we are now able to access any kind of information at the click of a button. This has drastically changed the way we interact with religion and spirituality, giving us more choices and opportunities than ever before. But while it can be a valuable tool to further our understanding of faith and beliefs, it can also be a source of confusion and conflict.
Is Your Friend A Fool??
Some time ago I asked a young man the question, “Is your friend a fool?”. Sometimes in order to embrace the destiny God has in store, you have to be willing to ask the difficult questions. You have to be willing to examine where you are and what you need to do in order to […]
Compromise A Dangerous Road
Small compromises can easily grow and before you realise it, you’re compromising in bigger areas too. Do you lie to look better than others? Perhaps you decide to go to a party that you know your parents wouldn’t approve of. Are you dating the guy that looks cute, but who you know isn’t a good […]
Don’t Panic Exercise faith?
Last week I had a prayer request from a woman who thought she was losing her baby. She pressed her hands on her stomach, but nothing. she tried moving around, drinking something cold, but nothing. Her unborn child had either been quiet for quite a while, or something was wrong. She had two choices. panic […]
As many of us celebrate birthdays this summer, we tend to look back and reflect on our mistakes and shortcomings or what may have been. We get down on ourselves and think, “if only…” “I should have…” “What if…?” It’s easy to feel like you’ve missed opportunities over the year, then we get depressed and […]
God My Friend? ?
Are you seeking God’s help today? Our psalmist in today’s scripture is in trouble and danger. Enemies on every side. In effect, he cries out, “God help!” But this is more than a cry for help; it is also a plea for forgiveness. Repeatedly, the psalmist asks God to forget, forgive, and be gracious. He […]
I Need A Fresh Start
Do you need a fresh start this new year? Even as believers and ministers in Christ, we’ve all sinned, made mistakes and made some wrong choices in 2021. The Bible says that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. But the good news is that we don’t have to stay separated from God in our sin. […]
His Mercy Is Enough
According to God’s Word we all sin and we all make mistakes. We’ve all made wrong choices, but as believers in God, that doesn’t change our destiny. God doesn’t kick us out of His kingdom because we’re not perfect. You may feel like you don’t deserve anything good from God, or you should suffer through […]
In these times people are standing up for all kinds of reasons – against racism, against the vaccine, against voter fraud and the list goes on. One of the reasons people take a stand is because of poor choices others have made but other times, people have to take a stand to protect what is […]
Scripture tells us that seeking wisdom and discretion brings life and is “an ornament of grace.” No matter what decisions you may be facing today, God wants to equip you and empower you to make the right choices. How do we seek wisdom and discretion? By making the Word of God a priority. The answer […]
In one day we make thousands of choices. Some are greater and more important than others. Some require lots of thought and the input of others. Making Christ the Lord of your life is the best choice you could ever make! Hallelujah! However, once you make the choice to surrender to God, you have the […]
God Approves Of You
You were on God’s mind before you were ever on your parents’ mind. He knew everything about you before you entered your mother’s womb. You were created on purpose, for a purpose. He planned the colour of your hair, the colour of your eyes and the colour of your skin. God gave you gifts, talents […]
My Steps Are Ordered
This week one of my prayers has been that God would give me direction and a renewed vigour. When we encounter difficult situations, we can be tempted to wonder if we are on the right path for our lives. And yes, sometimes we make poor choices that get us off course. If your heart is […]
Be An Ordinary Radical
"Don't be afraid," he said, "For you are very precious to God. Peace! Ne encouraged! Be strong!" As he spoke these words to me, I suddenly felt stronger and said to him, "Please speak to me, my Lord, for you have strengthened me." Daniel 10:19 (NLV) One 16 year old girl has been my inspiration […]
To say that Christians and Christianity are under a withering and brutal attack in certain areas of the world would be an understatement.
