Luk 19v40 – The stones will cry out

Have you ever had some really good news that you were bursting to share? Just before his crucifixion, Jesus did a dress rehearsal entry to Jerusalem. Seated on a humble donkey, Jesus gave a taste of the joy that will flood the world when he returns as king of the world. “When he came near… Continue reading Luk 19v40 – The stones will cry out

1Co 10v31 – Special moments

An engagement is one of the most exhilarating times of one’s life. Planning, designing, the location, the proposal – all a part of creating the perfect moment. While I experienced this recently, many moments in our lives can give us the same joy. However, the thing about “moments” is that they are fleeting.

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

With pipes destroyed by the flood, it… Continue reading 1Th 5v18 – Thankful

While most of us can be thankful for good things and in good times, gratitude is most… Continue reading 1Th 5v16-18 – Thank You

Isa 22v22 – The grave key

The music begins causing a hush to fall on the waiting audience. They rise as he walks ahead, carrying the mace on his shoulder. The excitement and expectation are palpable. The mace, a symbol of authority to change lives, to confer degrees, to give new hope. Graduation! —- All sound vanishes as a hush washes… Continue reading Isa 22v22 – The grave key

Jos 1v8 – Your streak

Streaks are a blessing and a curse; it seems most apps now have them. Every day you open the app and perform a required task, you earn another day in your unbroken streak. When days become months and even years, the thought of breaking the streak is just too terrible to consider. And so we… Continue reading Jos 1v8 – Your streak
