Have a Sense of Urgency

I came across this phrase this week in one of the podcasts I listen to. A story is told of a boss who had a name plate on his desk, and on one side (the side facing visitors) was his name. On the other, (the side facing him) were the words: Have a sense of…

Faith mixed with Revelation

Genesis 6:22 says that Noah did everything just as the Lord commanded him. It’s easy to do some of what God tells us. It’s easy to do everything God tells us, but in a slightly different way. (For example he could have made a slightly bigger boat etc). But the challenge is to do everything,…

The Promises are true!

Just a quick post…today has been an exhausting day. To be honest the whole week has felt pretty stressful. A lot on at work at the moment and a lot of problems along the way… And I got back from the office after work, dead minded, tired, wiped out, physically and mentally drained…etc. And the…
