Who am I

Casting Crowns’ song Who am I plays over and over in my head: Who am I, that the Lord of all the earth Would care to know my name Would care to feel my hurt? Who am I, that the bright and morning star Would choose to light the way For my ever wandering heart? […]

Your flaw God’s possibility

After one book launch evening, my wife came to me and said that people were asking her to explain what I had written in front of the book. They couldn’t make out what I had written. Yes, I failed this one in Sub A already: Penmanship. I’m very grateful today for computers and keyboards that […]

The chicken came along

I couldn’t stop laughing when I read Anne-Marie’s (not her real name) story: We recently bought a smallholding and to augment our income, we are busy raising broilers. They range freely in the yard. One of the cockerels found a nice warm space under the bakkie and settled himself there without us knowing. We were […]

Surprised by peace

I no longer watch the news, because I simply no longer enjoy it. It is not uplifting. It’s bad news all the way. News about people being dishonest. News about a government building a swimming pool and calling it a fire pool. News about war. News about people who have to burn tires to be […]

I’m writing this on a beautiful farm in the Gobabis district. It’s just after 3 am and I’m wide awake. Probably last night’s meat keeping me up. Hereabouts they only eat meat.

God leads our thoughts to love

My mind is normally all over the place, especially when I pray. So I often choose a Psalm and read it slowly and carefully. Then I take pen and paper and write down everything that I hear in that Psalm. I can fill a number of pages quite quickly. It helps me to focus. It […]

Taking a turnoff

When I look back on my life, I see where I turned off when I shouldn’t have. Some happened by accident, while others were conscious decisions. Those turnoffs weren’t within God’s will for my life. Fortunately, I turned back from most of those turnoffs. On others I stayed far too long and the consequences hurt. […]

Must Jesus do it again?

When something goes wrong, we quickly wonder where God is. When it hurts and we’re full of pain, we want to know where God went. But He is there. He is always there. It might just be because of the hurt and pain that we are blinded to God’s presence in our lives. It is […]
