Oh, no, I’ve forgotten all my memory verses!

by Mrs Jesus Follower

  And I knew so many, too! From a very young age I’d learnt the Scriptures verse after verse, passage after passage What a heritage! What a privilege to have these treasures tucked away in my heart and mind. As I reflected on this, a feeling of deep regret came over me because I know […]

Faltering Steps

by Mrs Jesus Follower

Paul tells us more than once to be imitators of Christ and I woke up this morning with words from a passage in Philippians going through my mind. Our Lord Jesus Christ didn’t consider equality with God a thing to be grasped; he didn’t hang on to this as a right. No, instead, he humbled […]

I don’t want to be tomorrow what I am today

by Mrs Jesus Follower

I press on toward the goal. I once heard someone say that if you woke up wanting to sing you’re a singer. I guess if I woke up and wanted to go for a jog, I’d be a jogger. Well, I wake up and want to write…so I guess that makes me a writer. Writing […]

Growing in the Knowledge of God #1

by Mrs Jesus Follower

Mmm…I’m not sure if I agree with that…I thumb through my Bible searching for a passage I read just a few days ago that will prove my point…back my point of view.  Sound familiar or is that just me? Why is it so difficult to say, Lord, search my heart and show me your truth; […]

Hold faith until he come!

by Mrs Jesus Follower

Until He Come! Why celebrate Easter once a year? The truth of the cross is almost lost, I fear Every day, yes every day until He Come! ‘Till He Come!’ What precious words! Words we’ve long forgotten. ‘Till He Come,’ what does it mean? To our younger generation? What’s happening to our world? I hear […]

Radical Thinking

by Mrs Jesus Follower

To love or to condemn? How do I respond to those living a lifestyle that makes me uncomfortable? How do they see me? What attitudes am I conveying to them? Praise God for leaders with the courage to speak up and put these challenges out there for us to face. Praise God for those who […]

A Darkened Room

by Mrs Jesus Follower

Some time ago I stopped to ask myself…how do I picture a true Church of the New Testament to look like today?  What would they see if someone were to stumble into it? The picture that came to me was a church in prayer…but it wasn’t a church as we know it today… it was […]

A Bad Day?

by Mrs Jesus Follower

It began wrong. It was one of those days some women and very few men may understand…what will I wear? No, not that, it might rain…oh, bother! That won’t work either, didn’t they say it could reach 40 degrees today?   And so it went on for half hour. I’d already wasted time trying to […]

More Jottings From My Journal

by Mrs Jesus Follower

A Moment in Time               I knelt to lace up the familiar little shoes for my two-year-old granddaughter. As I began, a strange thing happened and, like the change of seasons in a movie, I saw it. I was doing this very same thing but now it was her […]

Letting Light Shine out of Darkness.

by Mrs Jesus Follower

We’ve no doubt heard this before: its not what happens to us but how we respond. This is so true, but over these past few days this saying has taken on a whole new meaning for me. I’ve been reflecting on the passage from 2 Corinthians 4 where Paul says…so then death is at work […]
