Necessary Reparation.

Every now and then I read something that moves me and I feel the need to share it,  which I do so often on facebook and twitter. Today, this particular devotional reminded me of a conversation I had with my husband only a few days ago.  The deep deep hurt, which continues to haunt me, and effects me …

Obedience.

I read, this morning, on the Christian Concern site, what the Archbishop had supposedly stated to the General Synod..whether the writers viewpoint is correct or not I picked up on this….. “St Augustine described it so well when he wrote “Thou hast made us for thyself and our hearts are restless until they find themselves …

Change.

A spiritual wilderness is a strange place to wander.  It is a place where there is nothing, no connection to anything living.  It is a place that is uninteresting but it is a place where you can find solitude and if you are intelligent, a reconnection to that which you have lost. Sadly, I have …

The Judgement Seat of Christ.

Following on from my facebook post, the other day,  in asking;   “As Christians, we are forgiven our sins, the ones committed yesterday, today and those of all our tomorrows.  Praise God, thank you Jesus!   However, the question arises, bearing in mind God has forgiven and forgotten our trespasses…why are they brought into account on …

The Warrior is a Child.

Often feel weary and unworthy of calling myself a Christian.  My human instinct is to hide but I have a wonderful husband who covers me through these times with prayer and love, encouraging me to attend church and to pray. I am so blessed to attend a church where the teaching, preaching, fellowship, worship and …

Separation

  I have always enjoyed reading Proverbs, dipping in and out from time to time, it all makes perfect sense, I am aware of nodding my head in agreement, as I am sure many do.  However, one particular verse struck me recently and then, several other writings landed on my lap to impact me further.  …

This ‘n That.

Morning sharing It is amazing to find, although not unexpected, that when you think doors are closed and your life is really not going anywhere, and is perhaps over, that all you have to look forward to is a daily drudge of waiting for it to end, you find that actually the doors are not …

All previous posts have …
