The Sincerest of Prayers

If I'm brutally honest with myself, my most sincere prayer isn't one I'm proud of. It's not part of an inspirational tale of hope, passion and fervour with a dash of redemption. It's a tale of desperation. Of being beyond worldly help. It's a tale of being well past the point of giving up. It's... Continue Reading →

Grace

I never understood what grace was until now; and I've been going to church for 11 years. I was a bad person before I was saved. I know that we all think that, but when I share my testimony the usual reaction is shock and rejection. On occassions I had been removed from leadership and... Continue Reading →

When You Feel too Small

The salt in the sea The bees in the garden The raindrop in a downpour The spark before the flame The coral in the reef The bullet in the gun The man before the tank The beat within the heart The rudder on a ship The anchor in the ocean The gears within an engine... Continue Reading →

Weeds

Have you ever taken a moment to look at a garden? Be it a flower garden, herb garden or a vegie patch, there is something beautiful about all of them. I think when we see a garden, as well as seeing the beauty of the flowers, the fruit or the foliage we recognised the amount... Continue Reading →

Coming to the Father

'Let us then approach God's throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.' Hebrews 4:6 NIV One thing that often gets in the way of us coming to the father is shame. When the devil makes anyone feel like they're a... Continue Reading →
