2Co 5v17 – It’s your truth

In our modern world, phrases like “It’s all relative,” “Your truth,” and “Your identity” are commonly used. They reflect a perspective that everything is subjective and open to personal interpretation. But there’s a fundamental flaw in this viewpoint: the concept of relativity is meaningless without an absolute reference point. As a programmer, I often write… Continue reading 2Co 5v17 – It’s your truth

Eph 4v14 – Seagulls in the wind

It’s a particularly windy day, and watching the seagulls is fascinating. The seagulls align and face directly toward the wind while the wind blasts across the ocean and beach. It makes sense as this will enable them to keep their feathers unruffled, and it’s the direction they must face to take flight. Yet, while this… Continue reading Eph 4v14 – Seagulls in the wind

2Co 4v7 – The Trapped Log

Walking along the seawall, I see a massive log trapped between the tide and the shore. This huge log could be used to hold up a house or a bridge. Yet, it seems like the tide and the waves are determined to destroy it. Despite its size, eventually, it will break apart and disappear into… Continue reading 2Co 4v7 – The Trapped Log

Heb 6v19 – Anchor for our soul

Life is unpredictable, and so are the challenges that come with it. It is important to remember, in these difficult times, that God is an anchor for our souls. He is there to keep us grounded, and he will not let us drift away. In Hebrews 6:18-20, Paul writes, “… we who have fled to… Continue reading Heb 6v19 – Anchor for our soul

Isa 45v22 – Look to God

You are out at sea in a ferocious storm. You have lost complete control of the ship. The rudder has been damaged, and it’s just you and the turbulent 20-foot waves around you. What is your response to this deadly calamity? There is a saying, “There are no atheists on a sinking ship”. It is… Continue reading Isa 45v22 – Look to God

1Jo 3v7 – Practicing

Watching kite surfers on the ocean, I am blown away, literally in this case, by their skill as they play in the waves. It’s like a dance as they skip across the waves before ramping high into the sky, twisting and twirling before slowly floating down. It would be great to be able to do… Continue reading 1Jo 3v7 – Practicing

Hab 2v14 – It will happen!

“It always seems impossible until it’s done” (Nelson Mandela). Often the circumstances of a situation appear to be overwhelming, until suddenly, if we have faith and perseverance, the goal is achieved. The prophet Habakkuk shares a picture that looks remarkably like our world today. “Wherever I look, I see destruction and violence. I am surrounded… Continue reading Hab 2v14 – It will happen!

Jon 4v11 – The Unlikely Hero

It’s one of the most classic Bible stories known by believers and non-believers alike. It’s the story of Jonah and the whale. Yet, while some may laugh and others marvel, God uses this divine story to share a life-changing message. We may start the story as observers, but we end it rooting for Jonah and… Continue reading Jon 4v11 – The Unlikely Hero

Mal 4:2 – The sunrise

We wake up and look at the time. If we go now we can get to the beach in time to watch the sunrise over the ocean. There’s always something special about a morning sunrise. Each sunrise is a unique piece of art, as God takes out his palette of morning colors and splashes it… Continue reading Mal 4:2 – The sunrise

2Co 4:6 – Clouds and sun

Dark clouds are everywhere; a storm is brewing. That’s how life sometimes feels when everything starts to go wrong. It’s overwhelming. And in our storm, we cry to God, “Why me? Why do bad things always have to happen to me?” However, it’s often only in these dark moments that we see the light shining.… Continue reading 2Co 4:6 – Clouds and sun
