I’m Missing the Very Thing

by Mrs Jesus Follower

I woke this morning and felt as if a flicker of a light had come on. Yes, the same old question keeps lurking in the background… why doesn’t God answer my prayer? He does, I know because he says he will. Then, what’s wrong? The verse that had come into my mind this morning was, […]

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. […]

I wonder…

by Mrs Jesus Follower

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 […]

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 […]
