The Heart of a Champion

There wasn't much about this horse to distinguish itself from others. He was rather nondescript. An ordinary racehorse. Yet in 1973 this horse named Secretariat came out of obscurity to win three main races known as the Triple Crown. Setting new track records in winning these races, he became one of the greatest race horses of all time. At one of… Continue reading The Heart of a Champion

Soul Talk

If you've ever found you're talking to yourself then you are in good company. A read of the Psalms and you'll find references to King David speaking to his soul. But while I might have caught myself mumbling about the need for a coffee or questioning myself as to why did I walk into this room, King David… Continue reading Soul Talk

Daylight

The room was gloomy in the morning. Like a blanket the gloom slipped over me too. Everything felt dreary and depressing. The luminous colour of life had gone. Dullness left in its place. But then I opened the curtains and the early morning sun and light blazed in. The sunlight outside beckoning joy and life. Colour returned. I am… Continue reading Daylight

In the middle of the night, in the dark, my four year old knows how to find me after a bad dream or if he's not feeling well. The dark of the night doesn't stop him seeking me out and finding me. When we're in the dark, going through a hard time, we can be… Continue reading In the darkness – {Easter}

The Wibbly Wobblies

The wibbly wobblies is what a friend of mine calls them. Those moments when you confidence and faith gets a little shaky. When you're standing in faith for breakthrough, healing or a miracle and it seems that you’ve stepped a little to close to the edge of a cliff and if you’re not careful you’ll fall off. It’s… Continue reading The Wibbly Wobblies

Whose side are you leaning on?

There's a Children's Church song that's been on repeat in my head for several days now! It starts with the question "Whose side are you leaning on?" The response is "I'm leaning on the Lord's side." Good question to ask oneself! Are we leaning, dependent, trusting on the Lord? Are we leaning on the Lord's side or… Continue reading Whose side are you leaning on?
