See Me ‘For Who He Really Is’

Share List In the 90’s there was a Christian song that was quite popular. The title of it was, “For Who He Really Is” and it was written and performed by Steven Curtis Chapman. I’m going to share some of the lyrics with you but encourage you to check it out on YouTube! (view one of the many videos of this song below; full lyrics in the description of the video, which you’ll be able to see if you click …

Since they are no longer two but one, let no one split apart what God has joined together.

Get Out of the Ditch Together

Share List My ‘why’ I’ve been criticized for the stand I’ve taken on a wife being in submission to her husband, and I’m ok with it. In fact I’m not bothered by it anymore at all because I am super secure in who I am (in Christ) and the realization that submission does not mean inferior.  Letting my husband lead has kept us from many emotional catastrophes! Circumstances that we detoured because John wouldn’t let me respond according to how …

Can two people walk together without agreeing on the direction

A Need to Stick Together

Share List I’m going to throw in some marriage advice today. “Can two people walk together without agreeing on the direction?” ‭‭Amos‬ ‭3:3‬ ‭NLT‬‬ Recently I was talking to one of my girls about this subject and this illustration came to me. The two front wheels of any vehicle are connected by an axle and whichever way the steering column steers is the way BOTH wheels turn, because they are connected!! This is the way a husband and wife need …

Mark 16:15

Our Assignment From Head Office

Share List Recently I came across a social media post where someone was insulting an entire group of people of a different persuasion. While I found myself more likely to agree on the subject with the ‘basher’ the delivery was repulsive. It actually reminded me of the extremists that bomb pro- choice clinics in an effort to protest abortions. Which makes absolutely no sense whatsoever!! I am pro-life all the way; which is why it would then be ludicrous for …

holy bible on pew - commitment to the gospel message

Commitment to Christ

Share List Having been on a HUGE break for too many reasons/excuses to share, my conviction about writing this blog has finally broken through and here we are! 2020 hasn’t exactly been a smooth ride. In fact quite the opposite is true. Most people (and sadly not just unbelievers) have fallen prey to the fear that is being spread by every media source and consequently many have fallen away from what truly matters and have instead been enticed away by vain …

Get your sail up and set your course

You Set the Course

Share List Have you ever wanted something?   I don’t mean ‘wish’. I mean you wanted to change a circumstance or reach a goal? In those circumstances there are only two options. There’s do or don’t, there is no try!  It sounds hard and condemning, but it’s the absolute truth!  We tend to want to give marks for effort, but when it comes right down to it, it’s what you do that brings the desired end result, not what you …

crave spiritual milk so that you will grow into a full experience of salvation

Let’s Grow Up

Share List   This past week, our family celebrated one of our children’s birthday. She turned 8 years old! When I posted some pictures of her on Facebook and Instagram, I had somebody comment, “how is that possible?!” Of course nobody would actually mean that, we all know how this thing works, you’re born and year after year you grow. But it got me thinking. We sometimes feel like we just blinked and ‘suddenly’ our baby is no longer. But …

Chris Tomlin - Good Good Father

That’s Who I Am

Share List   I have a new favourite song.  It’s Good, Good Father by Chris Tomlin. The verses are great, but it’s the chorus: ‘you’re a Good, Good Father that’s who you are, that’s who you are, that’s who you are, and I’m loved by you, That’s who I am…   Whenever I sing it I am prompted in my heart that, that is the answer to the identity crisis that is rampant in our world today!  Who I am, …

You can be the light over darkness

For the Blind, We Have Mercy

Share List   Would you get angry with a blind person for causing some kind of an accident? I would hope not! We would have compassion, extend mercy and assure them that no harm was done and all would be well, right? In the natural realm that is exactly how it would happen, so why do we treat the spiritually blind differently? Maybe you don’t…but I have found myself frustrated with behaviour found in non-believers and then realization dawned! “Oh …
