No, Lord, You’ve got the Wrong Person!

by Mrs Jesus Follower

We all settled back to listen as the young woman stood up to share. She’d been working overseas for several years and was now home for her first break. Tentatively she looked around at us and, without warning, burst into tears. I don’t want to go back, she sobbed. I can’t do it anymore.  In […]

There’s Someone at the Door

by Mrs Jesus Follower

Placing my knitting in the basket, I headed for bed. I looked at the clock. Good, I could read for an hour and still get to sleep at a respectable hour. The book I was reading had got to a place where it was difficult to leave. Maybe I could even finish it this evening, […]

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; […]
