I don't have a lot to say today. Just one thought that filled my walk first thing, hung around during my quiet time, stayed as I prayed and popped up again as I drove to work. If I don't love then everything I do is pointless. 'Duh Jules', you might say. Indeed, basic stuff but … Continue reading Harmony
What if instead of saying I should be holy I said I could be? What if instead of saying I should be praying I said I could be? What if instead of saying I should be kinder I said I could be? I wonder if you hear the difference or if it is just me? I was thinking … Continue reading How About Could?
Joshua had some huge shoes to fill, he's appointed the leader and immediately the writer says: 10 Since then there’s never been another prophet in Israel like Moses. The Eternal knew him face-to-face! 11 No one has ever done anything like the amazing things ..... 12 .....shown such great power or done such terrifying things as everyone in … Continue reading Second Best?
Moses:16-17 Please, take care of these people. Eternal One, God of the spirit in all human beings, see to it that an able leader is appointed to guide and direct Your people by going out and coming in before them so that they are not like sheep without a shepherd.

I’m not writing to you some new commandment; it’s one we received in the beginning from our Lord. 6 Love is defined by our obedience to His commands. This is the same command you have known about from … Continue reading It’s Not Optional.
Although it's not in common use these days the term 'a Jeremiah' was applied to people who were pessimists of the worst sort foreseeing calamities and disaster ahead. What an injustice to the Prophet whose book I was reading today. After all, they aren't his words but what God is saying. And anyone who has read … Continue reading What a Jeremiah?
When you mention the name David I think the majority of people think also of Goliath. The story of the little boy with his sling taking down the giant is used as a metaphor for sports, business and life in general. Much to the chagrin of other famous Davids, the David of the Bible, king of … Continue reading Stay on Target
I'm reading a book called Sun Stand Still and it is awesome, it will challenge you and change you so don't buy it unless you want to have the sort of audacious faith that changes first yourself and then others. If you do want that then it is $15 well spent. Anyway, the chapter I read … Continue reading Flint Knives
I hopped on the feels train for a little ride this morning. To put this in context God spoke to me a week or so ago about an attitude in my heart that I had to put right. That part went well until yesterday when I tried to build on what I had changed and it … Continue reading Clarity
