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 […]

Older but not wiser

by Mrs Jesus Follower

I have been shocked at how quickly I can become disillusioned and discouraged as I’ve got older. Once it seemed so easy to believe…to acknowledge God’s hand in so many different ways…to trust him for the future. But somehow in all the twists and turns of life, the future hasn’t quite gone as I thought […]

I’m losing my mind

by Mrs Jesus Follower

Oh no, I’m losing my mind…a familiar cry for some of us? But today my cry was somewhat different. Oh, no! I’m losing the mind of my Lord Jesus Christ. In other words, I’m not seeing my world as Christ sees it. I often debrief through the small hours of the morning…sometimes it’s purposeful but […]

Every day Easter

by Mrs Jesus Follower

I’ve been thinking… Easter or Every Day? The cross is the moment where good and evil faced their ultimate battle. It would be going on 50 years since I first really recognised the victory of the cross and the spiritual battle we are in as believers and followers of our Lord Jesus Christ; fifty years […]

A slow burn

by Mrs Jesus Follower

My church I have looked and seen your hearts, and a time of healing has come, a time I have set aside.  I shall refine my people in these days. I have said, I have lit a fire in my church and I shall breathe upon it with my breath until it burns white hot […]

Feed Me

by Mrs Jesus Follower

You feed them! It had happened again. It was one of those moments where, from a familiar passage of scripture, something new jumped out at me. It was early one morning when I was reading through Luke and came to the familiar story of the Feeding of the Five Thousand where Jesus said, ‘You find […]

A moment in time

by Mrs Jesus Follower

There are a few times in my life where I’ve experienced a time warp. One such time was when I discovered some lost letters from an uncle whom I’d never had the privilege to know. I curled up on the lounge and became lost in another world. I was a little girl again enjoying wandering […]

God is in the storm

by Mrs Jesus Follower

The rain was bucketing down as we drove along. Would it ever end? It’s only a storm, says Julie in her own profound way. It is still Spring…the daffodils bloomed and the trees are in blossom. I haven’t been able to forget that statement nor the amazing truth I saw as I thought about our […]
