The disciple whom Jesus loves… Did you know that this verse appears 5 times in the gospel of John? John 13:23 Now there was leaning on Jesus’ bosom one of His disciples, whom Jesus loved. John 19:26When Jesus therefore saw His mother, and the disciples whom He loved standing by, He said to His mother, “Woman, behold your son!” John 20:2Then she ran and came to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid Him.” Continue Reading

Jesus is the answer … a familiar phrase for many Christians. A clique which I didn’t understand for many years. How can one person be the answer to life’s many questions and challenges?

The Lord is my shepherd. Psalm 23:1-3 The LORD is my shepherd I shall not lack He makes me to lie down in green pastures He leads me besides the still waters He restores my soul He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake My study bible says that green pastures are literally pastures of tender grass. Can you imagine lying on soft tender grass? How comfortable. It also says that still waters are literally waters of rest. Can you imagine lying beside waters of rest? Not torrential and noisy but gentle soft guggling. So peaceful and relaxing. Continue Reading
Matthew 13:44-45 The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid again; and from joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. Again the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking fine pearls, and upon finding one pearl of great value, he went and sold all the he had and bought it. I used to think that the man who found the treasure and the merchant seeking fine pearls represent the people, the believers. When they found God (the treasure and the Continue Reading
Is there a meaning behind the name Jesus? Jesus in Hebrew is Yeshua. Yeshua means Yahweh saves. Yahweh means the Covenant-keeping God. Yeshua, therefore, means the Covenant-keeping God saves. If the Covenant-keeping God saves, who can “un-save” Praise God!
Jesus is my blanket and my bolster. I like snuggling under my blanket with my bolster. Especially during the early morning and best still when it is raining. I like the cool feel of the sheet against my skin and the soft cuddliness of my bolster. So nice, so comfortable, so safe. I don’t want to get up. I want to lie in bed under my blanket with my bolster.:D I like snuggling with Jesus Especially during the early morning and best still when it is raining. I like the cool embrace of Jesus and his soft cuddling So nice, Continue Reading
Why is it important to remember the Lord? Today’s Bible reading: Deuteronomy 8:17-18 Then you say in your heart, “My power and the might of my hand have gained me this wealth… And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day. It is only when everything seems to come so naturally that Moses needs to remind the people that the Lord is behind it. God’s blessings must come in such supernaturally NATURAL ways Continue Reading
Lyrics for Testify To Love. This is a song that speaks of the heart-bursting response to the overwhelming love of Jesus. It reminds me of Psalm 103:11-14 11 For as the heavens are high above the earth, So great is His mercy toward those who fear Him; 12 As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us. 13 As a father pities his children, So the Lord pities those who fear Him. 14 For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust. Psalm 103:11-14 Whenever I hear this song, I want to sing Continue Reading

All constructed to a scale of 90:1. We had a good time laughing at ourselves struggling to Continue Reading
Matthew 5:14-16 You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. Jesus uses 2 examples to describe what he meant by “light of the world“. city on a hill lamp in the house What is the difference between the light of Continue Reading
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. – Galatians 5:22-23 This post is about Galatians 5:22-23 – the fruit of the Spirit. 1. Singular Form Notice the use of the singular form of the word “fruit”. 9 items are listed but they are considered one fruit of the Holy Spirit? Does it matter? If it doesn’t, why did the bible not use the plural form? I think it does matter. Think about what it means if all 9 attributes belong to a single fruit. Continue Reading
Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous, love does not brag and is not arrogant ~ 1 Corinthians 13:4 I used to think that the LOVE in 1 Corinthians 13:4 is what I have to do. To love, I needed to be patient, to be kind, not to be jealous, not to brag and not to be arrogant. But years of experience informed me that I am NOT patient, NOT kind (not all the time anyway), am jealous sometimes, brag too often and is arrogant most times. Does this mean I do not have love? This is serious! Continue Reading

As the lyrics for Unmerited Favour goes, “It’s got nothing to do with what I did but it’s all about what You’ve done for me.” How liberating.
