There is only one place where we can put our hope for the future without fear of being let down. If we are looking ahead and placing our hope in the government, election results, political deals, our employer, or any relationship, we may be sadly disappointed. But if instead we place our confidence in God, who loves and cares for us, we will not be overwhelmed even if, or when, the unexpected happens.Continue reading “Looking Ahead with Confidence in God”

Exploring How to Walk in Love, Three Ways!
Do you enjoy walking, or do you just view it as something necessary to get to your destination? These days we have a choice as to when and where we walk, but at one time it was the main mode of transport and walking was very much part of everyday life. In the Bible, the way we ‘walk’ is used as an analogy to describe our lifestyle and our daily relationship with God. Scripture is full of advice on how to walk in love and the freedom that is ours when we do!Continue reading “Exploring How to Walk in Love, Three Ways!”
Biblical Affirmations Bringing Light for the Shadows
Biblical affirmations are simply verses of Scripture that affirm who we are in Christ Jesus. The focus is not on who we are, what we’ve done, or even what we can become. The verses that bring encouragement and hope remind us of God’s faithfulness and all that has been won for us in Christ. Focusing on Scripture in this way is powerful and effective. It cleanses the darkness of this world from our minds and brings the light of life – the truth of Jesus Christ.Continue reading “Biblical Affirmations Bringing Light for the Shadows”

Your Statutes Are my Heritage Forever
Where is your inheritance? The majority of us have not inherited wealth, property, or land from our families. But as Christians, we have a spiritual heritage that is worth far more! Do we really understand what has been gifted to us in Christ Jesus and the riches that we have in the word of God? If we do we can join with the psalmist in saying, ‘Your statutes are my heritage forever – and the joy of my heart!’Continue reading “Your Statutes Are my Heritage Forever”
The Pilgrim by Joy Margetts
A wonderful second novel from the author of ‘The Healing – Will a monk’s habit help unlock his identity’. This book is actually a prequel to ‘The Healing’ although the story does stand alone. The series is set in medieval times among the abbeys and holy sites of Wales. One of the supporting characters from ‘The Healing’ becomes the central figure in this story – although to begin with we may find it hard to recognize him! If you’ve never read any Christian historical fiction before then The Pilgrim by Joy Margetts is a great place to start.Continue reading “The Pilgrim by Joy Margetts”
