Sitting by the Fire…

There’s something cosy about a fire, to sit by it and watch the flames dancing and feel the heat of it warming your body. But it’s of little use to us from a distance, we may be able to admire it if we’re not too far away, but we won’t feel the warmth of it.Continue reading “Sitting by the Fire…”

Which Skeleton are You?

The tree skeletons have fascinated me for several years but this year God opened my eyes to something new…. ….they are just like God’s people friends! Each of these trees are firmly planted and if we’re born again we have been planted in Christ,… ‘planted in a good soil by great waters, that it mightContinue reading “Which Skeleton are You?”

Rest!

Rest! There’s a peace in resting and there’s perfect peace in resting in Christ. The children of Israel wandered in the wilderness for forty years, instead of entering into that promised rest. Why?… ‘They could not enter in because of unbelief.’ They didn’t enter in because they saw the giants of the land and doubted.Continue reading “Rest!”

Joy-Full

In John’s introduction to his first letter he says that he writes these things ‘that your joy may be full’ What things? The things that he has handled, heard and seen of Jesus, the things that John writes about in the coming verses. This statement is very similar to Jesus’ words in John 15:11 asContinue reading “Joy-Full”

Amazing Grace

Why do we try to do what’s right? Is it because that’s the way we were brought up? Is it because we want to be a good Christian? Or is it out of an overflow of love to the One who bore our punishment? When we are called by grace, when our sins are forgiven,Continue reading “Amazing Grace”

A man after God’s own heart…

When we look at those in the Bible who loved the Lord, those like David about who God said…’I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.’… It’s so easy to feel not enough, to feel that our lives are far from what theyContinue reading “A man after God’s own heart…”

Be Still and Know…

Do you long for more grace and peace Friend? Grace to be Christlike on the hardest of days and peace whatever your circumstances may look like? Surely this is where we will find true joy. Peter says… ‘Grace and peace be multiplied unto you…’ Is this what we’re longing for? If so, then how doContinue reading “Be Still and Know…”

Freedom!

Liberty……freedom…. What comes to mind when you hear these words? Is it that you’re free to do as you please? Jesus tells us that… ‘the truth will make you free’ and Paul exhorts us to…. ‘Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yokeContinue reading “Freedom!”

Together…

For years I’ve been fascinated with the speed that my body works together to react to situations. I especially notice it if I drop something. Not only does a message go from my hands to my brain to tell my brain what’s happened and back to my hands in a split second with a messageContinue reading “Together…”

Redeem…

Have you given today to the Lord friend? This is something that God had been teaching me to do recently and it’s made so much difference to my days. I will tell God the things I feel I need to, or would like to do but then I tell Him that my day is allContinue reading “Redeem…”
