Lessons on a Snowboard

Many things flood to mind when you’re lying face down on a table while the masseuse runs her elbow down the length of your spine, trying to kneed out the knots that have found their way into your muscles. Mostly what I am thinking of is how much these hurt, mixed with a weird bliss […]

What’s my life calling? / What if I don’t have a testimony?

As promised, this months message is all about the two questions above. This is a topic that I am passionate about, but also one that I’ve grown into in the last few years. If you’re anything like me, you’ve wondered these things because you’ve over-complicated what it means to be a follower of Christ. It […]

Faith in Action – a Reflection

Back in November, I wrote a piece that looked a little different from what I normally write and I reflected on scripture that was speaking to me and encouraging me at the time. June 2018 looks a lot similar. Uninspired by what to write, the Lord graciously reminded me this morning of Hebrew 11 and […]

Treasure in Heaven

It’s the last few weeks of the Australian autumn now! Is anyone else thinking, “Where has this year gone?” Honestly I think this every year, more and more now the older I get. Perhaps it has something to do with not always living in the moment as I did when I was younger and free […]

A Road Map In the Dark

To be honest, I wasn’t sure how I wanted to start this one. Usually I draw inspiration from my life when I decide what I am going to write. A Road Map in the Dark has been something that has been inspired by what I am reading in the Bible right now (the Torah, or, […]

Have a little Faith

Happy New Year! I know, it’s already at the end of the first month, (I cannot believe January has gone!) But all the same, here are some thoughts on Faith for the New Year. I’ve been reflecting lately about what Jesus says about having trouble in this world (see, John 16). He never promises us […]

The Art of Generosity – General Thoughts

Christmas and the end of the year are always busy seasons as we gather ourselves together, spend another moment with those we love, before jumping into the New Year with anticipation and hope that ‘This will be our year’. But these seasons are always busy, and because people remain to be sick throughout this season […]

A Time For Everything – a Reflection

November looks a little different for this blog. Mostly because the month has disappeared away from me and also because I have been on nightshift for the entirety of it. It’s not that I don’t have anything meaningful to say, only that I have been reflecting on this year, and what it’s looked like, and […]

Rest and Refresh

Very often my life is so busy, my emotions constantly stimulated by what I am seeing and who I am becoming, I feel so unmotivated to write. And then other times, like a sudden strike of lightening, new thoughts and ideas begin to build like the coming together of a summer storm. A sudden urge […]
