In the Depths of Discouragement

The prophet Jeremiah had been speaking the word of God to the people, confronting them about their sin, warning them about God’s judgement that would come upon them unless they repent and turn from their ways. The people did not listen and also mocked, scorned and persecuted Jeremiah. When we come to Jeremiah chapter 15,... Continue Reading →

Wander or Yield

Jeremiah 14:10a “This is what the Lord says about the people: They greatly love to wander; they do not restrain their feet.” The people of Israel are complacent with their obedience to God. Their false prophets and priests were misleading the people to think that they would not suffer under the sword, famine or plague... Continue Reading →

Crispy Chicken Parmigiana

Today I share an absolute family favourite, Chicken Parmigiana. This is one of our dinner staples that gets a lot of 'ummmms' while being eaten. The crispy and crunchy outside with the melted cheese is just drool worthy. For some reason, I had not made this for quite a while and have in recent months... Continue Reading →

Is God your Glory?

Jeremiah 2:11 “Has a nation ever changed its gods? (yet they are not gods at all). But my people have exchanged their Glory for worthless idols.” We see God described as the ‘Glory of His people’ here. It intrigued me. In 1 Samuel 15:29 we again see God described as the Glory of Israel “He... Continue Reading →

Let God be your Fuel and Fire

Jeremiah, the son of Hilkiah belonged to a family of priests in Benjamin. In Jeremiah 1 we read how God calls Jeremiah to be His prophet. The word of the Lord came to Jeremiah saying “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, before you were born, I set you apart; I appointed... Continue Reading →
