Eph 1v18 – Turn the light on

It’s crazy how you can easily walk around your home in the light, but everything changes if it’s dark. While you have a general idea of direction, unexpected items easily trip us. It’s even worse if you walk in the dark in an unfamiliar space. You quickly become disoriented and easily bump into things. The… Continue reading Eph 1v18 – Turn the light on

Joh 14v6 – The driveway

Recently, we experienced catastrophic flooding that destroyed many homes in our area. In addition to our homes being flooded, our road and long gravel driveway were totally destroyed. While I had always been aware of other risks to our home, like theft or, fires or even flooding, I had never considered the impact of losing… Continue reading Joh 14v6 – The driveway

Psa 37v23-24 – God’s Control

Recently, I woke up at 3 a.m. and then battled to fall asleep. Despite all my best efforts, my brain wouldn’t switch off. The problem is that the more we try to fall asleep, the longer we stay awake. It is only when we let go of our trying that sleep finally comes. It seems… Continue reading Psa 37v23-24 – God’s Control

Psa 25v9 – The gift of humility

What is it about humans that we love to be right? We are proud of our point of view, proud of our correct knowledge and understanding. Yet is this the way our Heavenly Father wants us to think and behave? Is this the type of heart and mind that draws us closer to Him or… Continue reading Psa 25v9 – The gift of humility

Psa 68v19 – Travel light

Many years ago, my wife and I were travelling around Europe. Everything we thought we needed was packed in our large backpacks. However, soon the weight became onerous as we trudged long miles. While the memories of the places we visited may have faded, the lesson of sore shoulders and travel light has not. Now,… Continue reading Psa 68v19 – Travel light

Joh 8v12 – The light

Isn’t it fascinating how flying brings a unique perspective? No matter the weather below, it’s always sunny above the clouds. It is like the saying, “There’s always a light at the end of the tunnel.” Life isn’t always a ‘sunny ride’ and doesn’t always go according to our plan. However, it’s important to remember that… Continue reading Joh 8v12 – The light

Isa 42v16 – Worn path

I was walking between our house and my daughter and son-in-law’s house, which is nearby, and I noticed how there is a worn path in the grass marking the route we all seem to take. Typically the reason for a worn path is because this is the shortest and easiest route between two points. As… Continue reading Isa 42v16 – Worn path

Psa 37v23 – Ordered steps

It was dark when we arrived at the restaurant on a wine farm. Using our phones as torches and following the sound of laughter and talking, we found the restaurant. On leaving, we headed back in the general direction of where we had parked. But soon, we were lost. We couldn’t find the parking area… Continue reading Psa 37v23 – Ordered steps

Matt 11v28 – His path

To save time, on our mountain hike, we decided to head straight up the tree line instead of taking the contour path. The hike was tough and steep and filled with boulders and branches to clamber over. With no energy for conversation or time to look at the view, we pushed on. Two-thirds of the… Continue reading Matt 11v28 – His path

Pro 15v19 – Thorns on the driveway

We were walking along our long gravel driveway when I noticed small plants popping up in the raised middle region between the two ruts created by the car’s tyres. On closer inspection, I saw that the plants were brambles. It was only in the middle that they were growing, not where the car’s tyres drove.… Continue reading Pro 15v19 – Thorns on the driveway
