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…

“The secret to success is taking an interest in life.” I read this quote recently as part of a personal growth programme I’ve signed up to. And I really do agree with it.

Mentored by Authors

Anyone who has been around this blog for long enough will know that I love to read. But from March 2020 up until now, I have deliberately taken a few steps back from reading “Christian” books. (Don’t get me wrong, I’ve read a few!) But, relatively speaking, I cut back a significant chunk. Why? Well,…

Approaching 200 followers…

I got a notification from WordPress this morning letting me know someone else had ‘followed’ my blog, bringing the total to 199. I realised I was quickly running out of time to write this post! I am under no delusion, that many of the ‘followers’ don’t read my posts and may not even be involved…
