Devotion – Knowing one’s beginning (Part 4)

I am all for freedom of expression. I think I appreciate the purpose of this right we all have, but sometimes I wish that some did not have this right that they seem to use freely and with impunity. I am quite exhausted of being bombarded by views, opposing views, countered opinions and calling into…

Devotion – Knowing one’s beginning (Part 3)

My son and his wife are having a baby any moment now. Great joy, but it is half joy and half sorrow as one feels the wrenching apart that this darn pandemic has thrust upon us. Every relationship I have is altered. I am not designed to have Zoom relationships, to speak in false starts,…

Devotion – Knowing one’s beginning (Part 2)

Lockdown and social distancing are starting to bite. Now, I can’t help but feel the churn again in my mind. I need a handle to hold on to as things spin. I need a focal point in the distance to keep perspective. I can’t find that focal point in my own mind. I can’t pick…

Devotion – Knowing one’s beginning (Part 1)

I trust I am not alone in finding that the current challenges facing me in this Covid crisis and all the consequences is more than a little unsettling. I try to stay on top of information, read wisely, listen to all the analysis, get completely freaked out, hide my head in the sand, come up…

Devotion – A Season of Rest

We have a huge oak tree outside, and over the past few weeks we have seen the change from the healthy green leaves of Summer and the wet weather, to all of the autumn colours, and finally seen as many of the leaves have fallen to the ground. Piles of leaves lie on the ground,…

Devotion – Wisdom Words

Today as we carve out time to devote to God, our scripture to meditate on comes from 1 Corinthians 2. We are focusing on reading verses 6-10 today, but may we all feel encouraged to read the whole of chapter 2. Remember to ask God to simply speak to you as you read.  6We do,…

Devotion – The Glory of Jesus

In Revelation we have some incredible displays of God’s beauty and glory. Revelation 1:13-16:  13In the midst of the lampstands was one like a son of man, clothed with a long robe and with a golden sash around his chest. 14The hairs of his head were white, like white wool, like snow. His eyes were…

Devotion – Men versus Methods

I have been reading the biography of Hudson Taylor, a missionary to China who founded the China Inland Mission. This man was a remarkable example of faithfulness to God. Commenting on his life, E. M. Bounds remarks:  “Men [and women] are God’s method. The church is looking for better methods; God is looking for better…

Devotion – Plans

God has plans. From the very beginning when He created this world, He had a plan. For day and night, heavens and earth, land and sea, sun and moon, birds and fish, animals and humans, He has always had a plan. And just four verses into His Word, we see that He likes His plan….

Devotion – Something New

1-4 But now, God’s Message, the God who made you in the first place, Jacob, the One who got you started, Israel: “Don’t be afraid, I’ve redeemed you. I’ve called your name. You’re mine. When you’re in over your head, I’ll be there with you. When you’re in rough waters, you will not go down. When you’re…
