  • The End of the Beginning

    02 April 2014

    The crash of glass, the squall of brakes, the anguished cry, as metal rakes, the moans and groans of souls in pain, the eerie silence in the rain, one drove too fast, one couldn't see, souls ushered to eternity... The verdict hard, the cancer cell, a...

  • Seeing Is Believing?!

    23 May 2014

    That Depends on What We Are Choosing to See! We humans wrangle too much over words. When worry is condemned as “doubt and unbelief”, then we simply call it “being concerned” - and go right on stressing out over things! Or if we are called out for “living...

  • The M.O. of a Fool

    21 May 2014

  • Aspirations....

    25 May 2014

  • The Breathless Expectation of a Life Lived in God...

    29 April 2014

    . . . in which God is the only surety. A life in which nothing else can be certain, because the deck is stacked against you – simply because God is your only surety! A life truly lived in utter Faith in that One Sure God – and not “lived” in pretentious...

  • How Should I Describe My Relationship....?

    03 June 2014

    . . . Obsessed, or merely Impressed? Abandoned, or just Attracted? Committed, or only Flirting? Actually I seem to stay a day behind of late, in the devotional entries. It just happens that the previous day's entry is what has been speaking to my heart...

  • The Grateful Un-Dead

    17 May 2014

  • Scratch Your Bum and Get Happy!

    29 June 2014

  • A Chip Off The Old Block?!

    09 October 2014

    "Christians" = "Messianics" = "Little Anointed Ones" ....??? What's in a name?! By definition the above equasion is absolutely true! And yet, I think it's past time that we asked ourselves - what are we to be anointed for – or with? Isaiah 61, which Yeshua...
