We are amazing creatures. Our bodies have so much ingenuity built into them - breathing, heart beating, even the fact that we are all uniquely individual despite a limited amount of details to use. What's most astonishing is that so many of these things that maintain the smooth running of my body are self-regulating. My … Continue reading Autonomic
Wow, it's been a while since I wrote here, longest gap since I started. Lots of things going on with me: changes, growth and loss but all good and nothing that compares to the joy of knowing Him! On that note, I had a verse today that made me go 'Hmmm' - in a good way. … Continue reading Dressed for Success?
These are the people who chase after Him; [like Jacob, they look for the face of God] Psalm 24:6 These people, that the psalmist refers to, are people of integrity and honesty before God.

Sometimes things grab you by the throat and shake you til you can't ignore them. Other times things just sit there in front of you immovable until you can't ignore them.

John 6:53 This must be one of the weirdest, most misunderstood, most mocked and most difficult things Jesus said. I spent time this morning thinking about it, turning it round in … Continue reading Consumed

The idea isn't new if you check wiki there've been other sayings with a similar theme. Basically, to me, it can … Continue reading YOLO
You have the fountain of life that quenches our thirst. Your light has opened our eyes and awakened our souls. Psalm 36:9 I want to encourage you to remember as you walk through all the situations of your life that you carry that fountain of life and that light with you. They are effective for … Continue reading A Small Reminder of Something Huge
It's funny that I keep finding new favourite books as I read my Bible regularly. Today I started James and this little bubble of joy perked up inside me, it's making me smile even now. You might wonder why when I share the first few verses because it's not what one might expect to make … Continue reading What’s Real?
