How Husbands Can Honor Their Wives

How Husbands Can Honor Their Wives

(Guest Author Brian Weatherill)  I had a couple guys inquire about the “giving honor to one’s wife as the weaker vessel,” and after some study here is my personal opinion and understanding. For many of us in our experiences of marriage, we all tend to see the picture here as a literal manual to figure out our wives. (This is version 2.30.06-21 preceding versions).  You get the joke.  It is a daunting task for many … Read entire article »

A Merry Heart

A merry heart does good, like medicine, But a broken spirit dries the bones. (Proverbs 17:22) If you’ve been around church at all, you’ve probably heard that our hearts have a “God-shaped hole” and that we need a relationship with the Father to fill it. That’s the truth. The problem is a lot of Christians still have heart issues, even though they’ve accepted Jesus into their lives. Did I say “a lot of Christians?” If we’re honest, we all do. Whilst I wholeheartedly believe in the complete work of Jesus at the cross and through His resurrection; I also acknowledge that we are works in progress; there is a process involved in becoming the people God has made us. A lot of that process is worked out through our choices. Primarily, whether or not we … Read entire article »

Some Christmas Thoughts on Mary, The Mother of Our Lord

Miryam bath Heli, in one sense of the word, was the most important person that ever lived. We know her as Mary, the mother of Jesus. She was the daughter of Heli (bath Heli). She was very young and already betrothed to be married; but she was chosen by God to be the mother of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Mary must have been shocked beyond imagination when the angel Gabriel appeared in her humble dwelling in Nazareth and began to speak to her. When he said, “Greetings, Highly Favored One, the Lord is with you: Blessed are you among women,” she was troubled and did not know what to think and apparently feared what might be coming, because the first thing Gabriel told her was not to fear. Then Gabriel … Read entire article »

Are You Smarter Than a Five Year Old?

I awoke this morning to find an envelope from my 5 year old labeled “To Dad” beside my head.  I was going to reach for my Bible first as is my habit, but felt that I should open his letter first.  I’m glad I did.  I spent a while just looking at the picture and marveling at the simplicity and truth in it.  I’m sharing it with you in the hopes that it will give you pause for thought.  It might be easier to print it if your screen is small. Click the following link to bring up the PDF image: A five year old looks at the cross Some Explanation of the Picture In the picture, on the right is a “bragger.”  He has a frown on his face. In the middle … Read entire article »

If Only You Knew: A Poem on Identity

This third poem was sent in with the request to publish it “Name Withheld.”  Even as a believer, people sometimes lose sight of who they are and what God says about them.  I’m posting it here as a reminder that even in the seeming comfort of the church there are still struggles.  People with real problems attend our churches and need to know HOW to find the answer in Jesus Christ. If Only You Knew Bitter, angry, alone, Scared of the unknown. Confused, messed up, hurt, Feeling less than a piece of dirt. ‘Why am I here?’ you cry, Awaiting for that longed reply. ‘where do I belong?’ you shout, feeling fear and nothing but doubt. Pushed, pulled, stretched, It’s all SO far fetched. which way do I turn? what is it I yearn? This and that, here … Read entire article »

Drunken Believer: A Poem About Alcohol

This second poem was sent in with the request to publish it “Name Withheld.”  It deals with a person who professes Christ as Lord and Savior but falls into the snare of alcohol.  I’m posting it here as a reminder that even in the seeming comfort of the church there are still struggles.  People with real problems attend our churches and need to know HOW to find the answer in Jesus Christ. Drunken Believer There is a time on Saturday night When you go home, you look a sight. You went out, you had some fun You drank a bit, in fact a ton. Pub to pub, vision blurred Words you spoke, they were slurred. Did I trip? Did I fall? You don’t know, you forgot it all. Now you’re torn, what to do? You love God, that … Read entire article »

Constant Battle: A Poem on Anorexia

This poem was sent in with the request to publish it “Name Withheld.”  I’m posting it here as a reminder that even in the seeming comfort of the church there are still struggles.  People with real problems attend our churches and need to know HOW to find the answer in Jesus Christ. Constant Battle A constant battle day and night Will I eat or will I fight. One skipped meal turns into two, Not one bite, not even a chew. My stomach’s hungry, but I won’t cave, I’m holding fast, not going to waive. Can you hear that faint grumble, Soon to be a real loud rumble. I need more fuel, its telling me, Crying out, longing to be free. I restrict, I refrain Listen to me I am your brain. I’m in control, I’m in charge No more butter, no more marge. This is me, … Read entire article »

Do Not Be Afraid Says the Lord

Do Not Be Afraid Says the Lord

Most people who know me would know that fear is something I struggle with a lot. Ranging from fear of animals, to fear of trying something new. I’ll explain. Growing up I developed many fears, some of which I can pin point where and why they started, some I can’t. For instance, I developed this irrational fear of dogs from such a young age; there was just something about them as a small child that … Read entire article »

Real Kingdom, Real Jesus, Real Life

We know the message, We’ve heard the word; Ought we be established in all that we heard? Tentatively pulling ourselves up to stand, One leg on the rock, the other the sand; Maybe this time we’ll learn to trust You, The One who’ll do all He’s promised to do. Maybe we’ll learn the Rock’s in fact stable, Our house is established, our God is able! Can we stop doubting, choosing instead just to see, by faith, what we’re expecting, and call it to be? Then our daring transmission of the message will be A market-place wonder, a sign, our victory As people renewed, see Your glory Not in heaven, But on earth, Not far off But near, Not fruitless effort, Not religion or strife, But a demonstration of this real Kingdom, Real Jesus, Real life. Kirsty Allan, (c) 2010 Used by permission … Read entire article »

A Testimony on Teen Relationships

A Testimony on Teen Relationships

I have an interesting view on relationships for young believers, one that’s not popular and not easy to swallow. It’s a view that stems from my life experience. During my early high – school years I was probably one of the most insecure, overly sensitive girls I think I’ve ever known. I felt ugly, undesired, unwanted and worthless amongst my peers. I was the centre of much ridicule, and rejected by many. This of course … Read entire article »
