Joh 8v36 – The drowned frog

I noticed a dead frog floating in the small tub we filled with water for our water-loving aqua dog to cool down in. The issue was that the frog, attracted by the irresistible allure of the water, could hop in, but it couldn’t get out. And so, sadly, the very thing it most desired would… Continue reading Joh 8v36 – The drowned frog

Pro 17v3 – The furnace

Proverbs 17:3 states, “Fire tests the purity of silver and gold, but the Lord tests the heart.” Each and every day, we are being tested, from the moment we wake up to the moment we fall asleep.

Pro 12v25 – Releasing the strangle

I find etymology, the study of the origin of words and their meanings, intriguing. One example is found in Proverbs 12:25, which reads: “Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up”. The word “worry” comes from the Old English word “wyrgan”, initially meaning “strangle.” If you’ve ever grappled with intense anxiety,… Continue reading Pro 12v25 – Releasing the strangle

Do you trust God? Most Christians would answer, “Yes”. Do you trust God at all times? Now, this may be harder to answer.

But what… Continue reading Psa 62v8 – Trust God always

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

Psa 22v21-22 – The unwritten space

There is nothing more amazing than seeing someone totally transform for good. Sometimes, we see the process, but other times, the process is unseen. All we see is the remarkable change. In Psalm 22, David writes a beautiful psalm that is firstly a prophecy of Messiah (Matthew 27:46) but also David’s life’s struggles. The first… Continue reading Psa 22v21-22 – The unwritten space

Exo 14v14 – Time for God?

Stop reading this. Set a timer for 10 minutes. Sit in silence, and be still. Let go to God. Let go of your worries. Let go of your fears. Let go of your control. Ok, do it before you read on…. Let me guess; you either didn’t spend the 10 minutes with God, or you… Continue reading Exo 14v14 – Time for God?

Jer 51v16 – Windy!

Roof Top Tents are an amazing invention for camping. When out in the wilds, you are perched high and away from the dust, slithering critters, hungry lions and other beasts. However, while being perched up high is great, there is also an issue – you are more exposed to the onslaught of the elements. Recently,… Continue reading Jer 51v16 – Windy!
