‘Be Still’ – Profound and Purposeful Action

Exodus 14:14 “The Lord will fight for you, you need only to be still.” What a powerful and comforting verse. I have been coming back to this verse and soaking this in for the last few days. This week I was not feeling very fighting fit in a spiritual and emotional sense and I just needed to be reminded that God is with me and for me every single day. I have read and re-read this verse and allowed it to minister to me. There is nothing more powerful and comforting than the word of God to minister to your … Continue reading ‘Be Still’ – Profound and Purposeful Action

It is one thing to say, “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want” … Continue reading Confidence In HIM

More Than Words

The Lord’s prayer, commonly known and widely used in worship, is said often and many a times by rote. It is ironic that Jesus gave us these words to teach us how to pray so that prayer would not be reduced to a ritualistic recital of certain choice words and yet these words are often recited without much thought. I grew up frequently reciting the Lord’s prayer and must admit that when I was young, have done so without giving it too much of thought. Later on, as I grew in my spiritual journey, I paused and looked hard at … Continue reading More Than Words
