God's Name, Scripture

Abba: God’s Names

I have recently been curious about the different names that God has been called. It's something I have previously over-looked because in most English translations of the bible they are lost. The amazing thing about knowing more of God's names is that they reflect aspects of his character. Previously I posted about His name ELOHIM and today… Continue reading Abba: God’s Names

ELOHIM: God’s Names

In most English versions of the bible God is generally referred to as God or Lord. In the original languages there are many different names for God. Many of these names describe some of the characteristics of God. As someone that wants to know God more naturally I want to know and understand His name.… Continue reading ELOHIM: God’s Names

The Secret Place

I love reading Psalms. I think they often show how times might have changed but the things people go through are really the same. Psalm 91 is beautiful and its about how when we choose to be with God he will be our protector. "He who dwells in the most secret place of the Most… Continue reading The Secret Place

Live by Faith not Feelings

Today I was cleaning out some of my drawers and a journal from when I was about 14 fell open. I saw a heading I had written and as you can probably guess it said, "live by faith, not feelings". First of let me just say, how incredible is it how God speaks to us.… Continue reading Live by Faith not Feelings

Waiting on the Promise

The God I know is good and makes promises to us. Whether it is one of the many promises that he has made to us that we learn about in the bible or if it's a specific promise he has given to only you it's important to remember that God is faithful and he will… Continue reading Waiting on the Promise

This got me thinking about what it means to be free. There are many ways to define freedom such as the power… Continue reading Freedom?

Stop Carrying that Stuff Around

I have been really blessed to have lived my entire life in beautiful South Africa, except for a few small holidays into Botswana, Zimbabwe and Namibia I have in fact never left. Because of the amazing privilege I have, on multiple occasions, come across the dung beetle. There have been times when I have stood… Continue reading Stop Carrying that Stuff Around

Speak life

Recently I have caught myself a few to many times speaking without thinking. I have began to realise how much power the words we say have. Proverbs 12:18 says, "Reckless words pierce like a sword but the tongue of the wise bring healing". When we are reckless with our words, when we don't think before… Continue reading Speak life

The power of testimony

This week I have been thinking a lot about personal testimonies. A friend of mine going through a tough situation told me that she is always so encouraged hearing other peoples testimonies and can't wait for her story to help someone else. I am so moved and encouraged by her faith and the way she… Continue reading The power of testimony

Thirst

I recently watched a sermon by Steven Furtick (Steven Furtick- The thirst trap)and I would highly recommend you watch it. After watching it I decided to look at John 4:1-26 (a passage he uses). This passage tells about when Jesus met the Samaritan women at a well. John 4: 7-8 7 When a Samaritan woman came… Continue reading Thirst
