We should never come with an approach of ‘I know it all’ and ‘I’ve heard it all’. We must remain open and teachable, even before scriptures that we may have read hundreds of times.
Rest is not supposed to be this thing that you collapse into after an exhausting day or season. Rest is supposed to be your starting point. God doesn’t just give strength, He IS strength and He is in me.
Technology is a tool and like any tool it can be used for good or for bad. A knife can be used for cooking, a hammer or axe for building, but both can be used for harm. The tool has no morals or values, it is the user that brings their morals and values to the use of that tool. This is the same with technology. The psychologist in me makes me understand another aspect of the use of technology as a tool. Anything that we use creates or exerts a degree of change in us, whether we realise it or not. For example, when you constantly use a pen or knife, after a while you may see an impression on your hands and fingers. Similarly, our use of technology creates impression marks on our minds which primes us for future activities, decisions, habits, expectations and relationships.

So what do we do when we have forgiven but we still remember?

I have heard many versions of the above phrase spewed inconsiderately and in a 'what are you saying now?' way to Christians, who perhaps shared that God instructed them to do something. That … Continue reading ‘God said…but it didn’t work out’

Matthew 6:5-15 (The Message) And when you come before God, don't turn that into a theatrical production either. All these people making a regular show out of their prayers, hoping for stardom! Do you think God sits in a box seat? "Here's what I want you to do: Find a quiet, secluded place so you … Continue reading Prayer Is Not A Theatrical Production
These Bible challenges that I’ve created have allowed me to really understand my purpose. The vision came way back in February 2013. I wanted to study the book of Esther by myself, but something in me – the Holy Spirit, told me to share it and see who else would be interested in studying the book … Continue reading Bible Challenge Testimonies
