Out of the Ordinary God speaks!

by Mrs Jesus Follower

There’s a quote I read once from Selwyn Hughes, a 20th century Bible teacher. My goal is God himself… at any cost, dear Lord, by any road. Many of us who read this would say this is also the desire of their heart, but it leaves me thinking God is about to do great things. […]

Pastors Ponderings

The Pondering this week comes via Mrs Jesus Follower- who wrote this post before Julie spoke on Psalm 51 last Sunday: I’ve realised that a line from Psalm 51 has, of late, become a focus for me. It’s from a prayer of David’s that’s brought a freshness to my life. The line that has jumped […]

I wonder…

Who has the Handicap? He sits tied securely in his wheel chair, arms and legs flailing the air, You try to avoid staring as his mother seeks to give him a drink. It has spilt everywhere – all over him, the floor, the mother’s jacket. Food and drink and saliva are running down his chin. […]

After all, He’s God

by Mrs Jesus Follower

I stepped out of the safety of the hospital onto the dark shadowy path. I felt numb but strangely at peace. It seemed to take forever to reach the end of the dark street and enter the old guest house. It was all so strange…so unreal. I fumbled for the key I’d been given and […]

On that first Christmas, some 2000 years ago, a baby was born. He came into the world in much the same manner as all other babies of the time, without the aids of modern maternity facilities. But this was no ordinary baby. Jesus, as he was named, was God coming into this world as a […]

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 […]

Making Joy Complete Recently we watched a video in Young-Adults group where John Piper was reading from C S Lewis in response to a question that a lot of people (particularly from an atheistic perspective) ask about God: Why does God want us to worship him?  Typically, we recognise the seeking of praise from others […]

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 […]

Last Sunday we had the pleasure of having three people (Graham, Bonnie and Phil) sharing their perspective on what church is to them.  There were a number of analogies given such as ‘family’ or ‘parts of a body’ but I have to say my favourite was a ‘stew’.  Bonnie was suggesting that through a very […]

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 […]
