Luk 11v13 – Answered prayer

We were visiting Etosha Game Reserve in Namibia. My daughter’s boyfriend had never seen a lion in the wild. I prayed to God that if it was his will, could he please lead us to see a lion. We were on our final day, heading toward the gate, and we still hadn’t seen any lions.… Continue reading Luk 11v13 – Answered prayer

Eph 1v18 – Light in my eyes

We are standing looking at a waterfall plummeting into a deep dark pool. The timing is such that the sun is just dipping behind the mountain behind the waterfall, causing the bright light to shine directly into our eyes. While we have been to this waterfall many times before, today we notice something else –… Continue reading Eph 1v18 – Light in my eyes

1Co 3v16 – The house

Home – it’s a place we desire to live with loved ones in joy and peace. It’s God’s design. In the beginning, in the dark endless emptiness of space, God created Earth – a place for Him to live with us. He then planted a garden, and in the garden, He made a special space,… Continue reading 1Co 3v16 – The house

1Co 3v16 – The motor museum

Recently I visited a motor museum that houses one of the largest private collections of cars. Inside four large buildings are housed an incredible array of old cars, from original Model T Fords to Formula 1 cars. Two things struck me besides the extraordinary value of the cars. The first was the fantastic condition of… Continue reading 1Co 3v16 – The motor museum

Heb 3v7-8 – God’s accent

“Hey Siri, please call my friend Pierre” “Sure,” the clever AI app replies, “calling your friend beer”. “No, not beer! Pierre!” “I’m sorry, Calling your friend fear.” “Never mind, I’ll just call him later.” “Okay.

2Pet 1v3-4 – Loadshedding

In South Africa, we have had to learn to live with load shedding. This is where we have our power cut off several times a day to stop the national power grid from collapsing. No power means the inability to do everyday things like working and cooking or could mean spending several hours in darkness.… Continue reading 2Pet 1v3-4 – Loadshedding

1Jo 2v27 – My Teacher

For me, maths class was the real challenge. Especially if it was the first time the teacher explained a new concept, like trigonometry, which made my brain go off on a tangent 😀. I would certainly miss it if I could. It can sometimes be like this with God’s Word and us. We read God’s… Continue reading 1Jo 2v27 – My Teacher

Eph 6:15 – Peaceful shoes

Pain. We are camping in the wilds, and I have just realized after taking my shoes off at the shower that I’ve left the soap in the tent. Rather than put my shoes on, I hazard the short walk back over the stony ground to the tent. Pain, as the sharp stones make me regret… Continue reading Eph 6:15 – Peaceful shoes

2Pe 1:3 – The Maestro

Have you ever listened to a musician play a piece of music so skillfully that you were just in awe? Have you ever wished to somehow have this skill transferred into your brain? Yet, we know it takes both incredible talent and thousands of hours of practice to become a musical maestro. Our calling to… Continue reading 2Pe 1:3 – The Maestro

Gal 5:16 – The Guide

“Stay quiet. Don’t move,” comes the urgent instruction from our game ranger. We are on a game safari and a huge bull elephant has suddenly and threateningly approached our open vehicle. His instruction is the opposite of what we want to do as everything in us tells us to scream or hide or run in… Continue reading Gal 5:16 – The Guide
