A word from the Lord to me - and maybe for you too? I want to share this with all of you because it spoke to me and I feel it's very appropriate for New Years Eve! I'm reading a devotional on my 'Bible' App by Joyce Meyer called 'Promises for your everyday life' The … Continue reading New beginnings
Whatever life is throwing at you today: no matter how difficult it is; regardless of the issues you must address or the situations you have to deal with - you need not face them alone. We have God's word on the matter - He is our Rock: we can lean on Him with total confidence … Continue reading Whatever you are facing today
It struck me this morning, as I read Romans Ch 1 verse 16, that Christians should not be ashamed of their faith for several very good reasons: - the word 'gospel' means 'good news' - 'salvation', in the context of the gospel, means ' deliverance from eternal death' - the 'gospel of Christ' is ' … Continue reading Not ashamed!
These verses are very reassuring because they remind me that it is by the power of God's love and favour that I am kept close to Him. It doesn't depend on me! I've accepted that I am helpless to deal with my sin. I am trusting in Jesus for my salvation. I am unable to … Continue reading Very reassuring

When I read passages in the Bible, like Ephesians chapter 2, I am filled with humility and gratitude to God for giving me a new life through faith in Jesus, His Son. And the best part is that anyone can have this new life because … Continue reading The Grace and Love of God.
This passage reminds me of all the people in my life who presented the gospel (the good news) of salvation through Jesus to me. What a privilege to have had a mother who was a committed Christian; for Sunday school teachers and church organisations to build my faith and develop my understanding; for Christians I've … Continue reading Grounded in faith
James 3:17-18 God's wisdom is: Pure - undefiled Peace-loving Courteous - considerate and gentle Willing to yield to reason Full of compassion Full of good fruits Wholehearted Straightforward Impartial Unfeigned - free from doubts, wavering and insincerity. This is what I want: this is how I want to live. I dedicate my life to my … Continue reading Wisdom of God and the harvest of righteousness
Truly I tell you, whoever says to this mountain, Be lifted up and thrown into the sea! and does not doubt at all in his heart but believes that what he says will take place, it will be done for him. For this reason I am telling you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe … Continue reading Praying with faith
