Life is a Story

Have you ever tried to figure out why things happen? What the bigger picture is? Whats the ending going to be like? Life is like a story, a story that began so long ago. We are in the middle. We have ideas of what the ending looks like, but we will never really know until we get there. It’s like opening a book in the middle and hoping to understand […]

How Far Would We Go?

The Bible is filled with people who were obedient and followed God to the end. Some suffered greatly and were even killed for their faith. Many people today are still being persecuted because they love Jesus. I have often wondered what I would do if I was persecuted for my faith. How would I react? How far would I go for God? Will stand strong and be bold? Or would […]

Malachi 4

The last chapter of Malachi is a chapter of hope. We have hope because we know that no matter how things look, God has a plan and He is in control. We, as Christians, can look forward to a joyful celebration. We will be free from this life’s worries and pain. We will be free with Christ!

Malachi 3

Just some things that jumped off the page at me, while reading Malachi 3 We need to be refined. This is how metal is refined: The raw metal is heated and melted by fire. The impurities rise to the surface and are removed. This now pure metal is moulded into what is was meant for. We are like raw metal. We need to be refined by God. After being refined, God […]

Malachi 2

Here are two verses from Malachi 2 that I felt that I needed to share with you: Verse 5: We are priests. We have a responsibility to follow God. To be true to His word, to live a life that honours Him. We are supposed to share our knowledge and love of Christ with everyone. But how can we do this if our lives don’t reflect Him? We need to change […]

Show Him Some RESPECT!

Malachi 1: Here God is angry with the people because they aren’t giving Him the respect that He deserves. They are only serving Him and loving Him half-heartedly. If someone popular or in a high-powered position asked us to do something, would we be willing and eager to please them? What about giving gifts? Would we not give our best to them? Yet how is our hearts and attitudes when […]

From Pain to Peace through Prayer

I was reading 1 Samuel 9-18 and was inspired to write this: Pray when something is causing you pain, stress or fear. Be actively praying. Don’t sit back and hope that it just goes away. Go before God, open your heart you to Him, pour it all out. Talk with someone. Find a friend, pastor or someone you trust to share your heart with. Sometimes we just need to get […]

Pride Gets In The Way

I never realise just how proud I was or how pride can get in the way of growth. Recently, I have been going through a tough time and have had so many unanswered questions. But I was too proud to go talk to someone. I finally, when reaching breaking point, went to speak to one of the pastors from my church. I can’t begin to tell you how free I […]
