Still God.

Why does the psalmist tell us in Psalm 46 to: “be still and know that He is God?”  because stillness is a most difficult position to assume; contrary to the idea of peace, being what all men desire, stillness is a time of silence and barrenness in which  we forget such things as sovereignty and…

Invisible God

How long will it take me to see you’re not invisible after all-it’s me who’s blind. I live in a dark world where the light of Christ alone illuminates my eyes to see the un-seen, know the unknown and commune with the invisible God.

All Stars

The Newness of Life

More thoughts on the life changing magic of tidying. I am continuing to sort and sift my clothes, but stage one is complete. There are two, large, black, plastic bags tied and ready to be released.   “Goodbye, farewell, and may you find someone you look better on, someone who loves you more than I do;…
