  • A Solid Foundation

    A Solid Foundation

    His Word provides a solid foundation that makes my life relatively stable regardless of the turbulences I experience. While my emotions can be on a rollercoaster from one day to another and my thoughts can vacillate from one moment to the next, the outcome of my life has been fairly stable and consistent with God’s promises for my life.

  • Day 24: The Efficacy of Prayer #28DayChallenge

    Day 24: The Efficacy of Prayer #28DayChallenge

    To pray literally means to make a request or a petition, usually to a higher power. However, the word “prayer” in the Christian sense includes all kinds of communication and interaction with God. Whether we are giving thanks for His goodness to us, praising and worshipping Him for who He is, making requests for ourselves, […]

    Day 17: Following God into the Future #28DayChallenge

    The future: that imaginary place where all our problems are solved and our dreams are fulfilled. The younger we are, the more excited we are about the future. It holds so much promise and possibility that we can barely wait to get there. We make plans and write lists and take steps to get to […]

    Day 11: Faith, Unfeigned #28DayChallenge

    Today, I want to share a few thoughts on faith, particularly in connection with the adjective “unfeigned” as used in the King James Version of the Bible. If you use more modern versions such as the NKJV or NIV, the word will likely be rendered “sincere” or “genuine”. In the first chapters of both his […]

  • Waiting

    Waiting

    Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. (Psa. 27:14, NIV) I don’t like waiting. Whether for a divine promise or a human verdict, I like to see or experience the things I am expecting as soon as I am aware they are on the way. Waiting often feels […]

    Saved by Faith

    Jesus rose from the dead. He is Lord. To believe and confess these two statements means that you have been confronted with the truth of the gospel – that you have accepted your need for a Saviour and accepted the Saviour who was offered. It means that you have embraced the sacrifice of Jesus and […]

  • Discipleship: the call to surrender

    Discipleship: the call to surrender

    When at first we identify as Christians, most of us have an incomplete or incorrect understanding of what it means to be a Christian. We may at first think it is a call to be good people, or an invitation to permanent happiness. We may be overwhelmed by the power of God, and expect that […]

  • Trusting Him in the Dark

    Trusting Him in the Dark

    Who among you fears the Lord and obeys the word of his servant? Let the one who walks in the dark, who has no light, trust in the name of the Lord and rely on their God.Isaiah 50:10 NIV Sometimes, the righteous walk in the dark. They deal with uncertainty, feeling their way around and […]

  • Praise You in the Storm

    Praise You in the Storm

    Today’s post comes from one of my favourites songs by contemporary Christian band, Casting Crowns. The song’s theme is maintaining faith in God through difficult circumstances. Praising God is a powerful way to declare our faith especially when we go through difficult seasons. It is our way of saying “God, I trust You, and I […]
