It's hard, but it's okay. It's lonely, but it's okay. It's stretching, but it's okay. It's uncommon, but it's okay. It's noble and it's okay! It's rewarding and it's okay! It's life-giving and it's okay! It's shame-free and it's okay! It's always okay to stand for TRUTH! - Alethea's Mind
Some weeks ago, we walked towards a lady who was trying to pick something up from her front pouch. We exchanged greetings and spoke to her for a bit and as we walked away, my daughter (DQ - she'll be five next month) said,"Mummy, I wanted to ask her if she knows Jesus. It's good [...]
About two weeks ago, I went on an evening walk with my camera to practice and to spend some time alone to ponder. As I walked past the bridge over the River Don and continued on the sidewalk, I thought about what I might find around me that would be a great capture and tell [...]
And he who had received the five talents came and brought him five more, saying, Master, you entrusted to me five talents; see, here I have gained five talents more. Matthew 25:20 Over the past couple of weeks, I have silently pondered on this verse, or let me say I have been a bit bothered [...]
Today heaven has gained a warrior
I've been on a special journey with the Lord since that grey Monday. On this journey, many walls I have built over the years have been pulled down and layers of veils torn apart as He gently strips me down to the original state He intended when He created me. I wish I can write [...]
Yesterday was . . . But God! And through the darkness, He sang to me, and He still rejoices over me with singing. Today, I share my 'Songs in the Darkness', so I'll never forget His words to my heart . . . and so that you, if you find yourself in the dark, will [...]
Tuesday morning.Family devotion.I asked Bumble-Bee to suggest a praise song so we could all sing along. In his usual fashion, he carried his drums sticks and began banging on his drums as he sang his second favourite song:"You're the God of miracles, signs and wonders.We believe in your power, we believe in your power."We all [...]
I enjoy our morning devotions as a family. God speaks to us in many ways, and one of those many ways is through the voices of our kids. For those who follow this blog, you might have come across quite a few of these types of posts where I share a quote or an action [...]
Be angry but do not sin. Do not let the sun go down on your anger. Ephesians 4:26 Sunset. When the sun goes down, all that remains is darkness. Anger. Every time there is anger, sin lurks in the corner, looking for the opportunity to take over. Darkness. Every work of sin is born in [...]
Many years ago, my dad, by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, began designing calendars that carried messages given to him by the Lord for each coming year. These calendars are printed and given out to anyone who cares to have one, and since we can't print and share them with the whole world, we [...]
Dear Heavenly Father, In the worship of you, we use the gifts You have given to express all the wonders You surround us with. In the praise of Your name, we tell the world through words and pictures how Your love is never-ending and Your glory, never fading. But when we take a closer look, [...]
. . . I knew I couldn't go through with it.
There is a chorus we sing at church that goes like this: "Who has the final say? Jehovah has the final say" Those words have come to mean more to me over these past few days as the accuser of the brethren geared up his armour to war against my peace of mind and my [...]
God is love and He calls us to love. Sue and I have a special relationship, one based on the love of God, and this post is a testimony of that love. I'm so blessed to have been a part of this God-project. No matter what happens in your life, please never forget that YOU [...]
Out of the mouth of babes . . .
. . . and forming habits.
If I was there, Jesus, in your days What would be my name? Where would I have stood? Would I be Mary who gave you birth? Or Herod, who sort your death? Would I have travelled like the wise men? Or held the sword across a child's head? If I was there, Jesus, in your [...]
I must say that because of my children, mornings have become more exciting for me than they would normally be, as I am not a morning person. I listen intently to anything they say, it seems as though they wake up with fresh revelations from the throne of God after basking in His arms all [...]
. . . and HIS!
