Sometimes God seems far away Have you noticed that even when we’ve made the decision to put our trust fully in God, there are still times when things go wrong and God seems far away? Remember the last time the storm rolled in and hit you head on. Maybe it was a frightening doctor’s report, a lost [...]

Read 1 Samuel chapter 1 so that you can better follow this story. Some background to Hannah's story Hannah was in a polygamous marriage. Her husband, Elkanah, had two wives, although Hannah was his favourite. However, in a society that valued a woman’s ability to bear children almost above all else, Hannah was childless. This [...]

Beggars Drive Ferraris

If wishes were Ferrari's then beggars would drive Ever heard the saying, ‘If wishes were horses then beggars would ride’? A modern version would be, ‘If wishes were Ferrari's then beggars would drive’. My wishes are often just a strong feeling or desire for something that can't, or most likely won’t, take place. Even as [...]

Should Christians have dreams? That was a question asked at the Beauty for Ashes conference recently and it has played on my mind ever since. My heart's cry was “Yes!” but it occurred to me that once, not too long ago, I was someone who didn’t have dreams. I have realised that for some people, [...]

An unrelenting love

O Love that wilt not let me go I rest my weary soul in Thee; I give Thee back the life I owe, That in Thine ocean depths its flow May richer, fuller be. God’s love is unrelenting in its pursuit of us. We are born in our Father’s heart, and though our meeting with [...]

Old-fashioned words

Isn’t it strange how words are used for a long period of time, and then become unfashionable and are seldom heard of again? Words like chaste and cavalier, abomination and zealot. 2 Peter 1:5 says: Make every effort to add to your faith moral excellence, and to moral excellence knowledge. 'Excellence' is a word we hear [...]

The Lord will provide

The patience of Abraham I’ve never been a particularly patient person. Maybe it’s because I always seem to be waiting on something. Recently, I was reading in Genesis about the story of Abraham and Sarah. There must have been great rejoicing for Abraham and Sarah at the birth of Isaac, a child who had been [...]

A matter of trust

If you read through the book of Exodus, it didn’t take long to realize that the Israelites complained. Continuously. Back in Egypt they had pots of meat and all the food they could eat. (Of course, they seemed to forget that they were also slaves being worked to death.) Now they didn't have meat, enough [...]

What is faith?

My grandchildren’s faith and trust in my ability to do things for them, and to take care of them, set me thinking. What is faith? How can I explain it to them? To have faith we must trust that what we have faith in is true.  Can I do an Internet search for projects for my grandchildren? [...]
