How Could They?

by Mrs Jesus Follower

I closed my bible and sat there for some time lost in thought. I’d been reading Jeremiah and a feeling of sadness so deep and so real had come over me. I love the old testament and frequently reflect on the details God gave Solomon for him to build the temple. This temple was the […]

Courage

by Mrs Jesus Follower

Schantelle’s baptism, a few weeks ago, raised a very interesting perspective that we’d love to share with you to think about. A beautiful young woman, a wife, a mother chose to be baptised the other Sunday. It was a God-honouring service and a joyful celebration of her new life in Christ as we walked to […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

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; […]

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 […]

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 […]
