Overflow and be different

Annatjie responded as follows on a Crossroads message: It is really wonderful to share love like this. I’ve been working at a day-care in Australia for five years now. I wear a cross around my neck to remind me of the Lord’s love all the time. And that is why I can treat every little […]

Pull out all the stops to help

It’s dry. Very dry. People are suffering. Animals are suffering. Farmers are jumping through hoops and there are no answers to all the questions. So, they pray. We often receive prayer requests like this one from Piet: Please pray for advice and guidance. I want to sell a number of animals and keep a core […]

Asked to be hands and feet

20Oh, Timothy, don’t fail to do these things that God entrusted to you (The Living Bible). Do you know what God asks you to do? Do you know what you have to do for God? Yes, we know God has given each of us gifts. We know that He wants to use some of these […]

He also believed this was no reason why a woman should be admired. No, Paul had a different opinion about a woman that served the Lord. He […]

Do kind deeds

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. For veggies, they braai chicken, and for salad, pork, but you won’t find these two on too many menus. A good friend invited […]

A sinner’s prayer for you!

Sometimes I feel stress threatening to overwhelm me as I think about the state of our country and its people. We disappoint one another; we no longer trust one another; we can no longer look up to one another or be role models to one another. Some time ago I had to pay in dollars […]

When other people breathe easier

Francois (not his real name) sent me the following message: On radio a psychologist used the following expression. It really made me think: “Be the kind of person who make people breathe easier when they walk away from you.” The world outside puts so much pressure on us! People struggle to keep standing under all […]
