What disturbs you?

One of the things I have found is that God likes to disrupt areas of my life where I am not trusting Him completely. Be that in my work, relationships, hobbies or even in my spirituality and religion. It is so easy to fall into the trap of (attempting to) “put God in a box”.…

Dwelling on Scripture

I am not shy when it comes to spending money on apps for my phone. I love experimenting with tools that boost my productivity, help me keep track of goals or even draw me closer to God. It’s an investment I am more than happy to make. (It helps that most apps have a free…

Evening Reflections

For quite some time now I have wanted to introduce a habitual time of reflection into each evening. It would be a time to look back, prayerfully and thoughtfully, on the day passed and consider: Where was God in these moments? In the big events and meetings, but also in the mundane. In the things…

Using a Prayer List

I’ve not really ever been one for using a prayer list, but over the last few weeks it’s beginning to take root in my daily walks with God. I’ve been following the prayer method explained in the book ‘How to Pray’ by Pete Greig. P-Pause, R-Rejoice, A-Ask and Y-Yeild. It’s been a great read and…

Morning Routine with Rewards

Since the beginning of June, I’ve been setting my alarm for 4.45 so I can take part in the 5am Club (after reading a book by the same name). It’s been really good and has helped me get a lot done. But this last week has been tough. With essentially 3-4 hours worth of “free…

Lord, don’t you care!

Earlier this week I was struggling to do my workout. I just did not want to do it. So instead I spent a long time thinking about writing up a new workout plan instead. Perhaps I needed to go for another P90x run through…then I thought about how I’d need a new pull up bar…so…
