God helps! Even through Noot vir Noot.

Aha! The best news ever. I really need it. We all need it. Even if our friends drop us, even if our family simply disappear in times of crisis, someone is always there for us: 17… the Master stood by me … Elzette’s true story about how God never abandoned her and cared for her […]

God – our windbreak

It’s good to check on your foundations now and then. We so easily get pulled into the world and then we forget our roots. We forget who we are and sometimes act differently, almost as if we are someone else. But before we know it, we feel empty and shuffle around aimlessly in the world. […]

Your calling …

Paul couldn’t fit all that he wanted to say to Timothy into one letter. But before Paul starts with his second letter, he reminds Timothy of who exactly he is. In this one verse he says quite a lot. He is an apostle of Jesus God wanted it to be so They sent him To […]

Although God knows what we are going to say when we pray, we must still pray. Yes, we have to pray, because when we hear what we pray, it changes us. We walk away from prayer changed, because our prayer is a conversation with a living God. That’s why it is important not to stop […]

Dominoes falling over or not

I’m always amazed at people who can sit for hours setting out dominoes in a specific pattern so that when they tap the first one, it falls on the next domino, starting a chain reaction that eventually knocks over all the dominoes in the long sequence. For days, people set out thousands and thousands of […]

Mouse, elephant, eagle and God

I was just thinking about the joke about the mouse and the elephant walking across the bridge. About halfway across the mouse said to the elephant: “We’re making this bridge boom, aren’t we!” What a bold little mouse. That’s how we have to walk through the world. We must be bold and must know that […]

The bus driver will stop for you

There’s this cute story about a little boy waiting on the sidewalk for the bus. He was very patient and quietly stood there waiting. A man came past and said: “Young man, if you’re waiting for the bus, you’ll have to go and wait at the next corner. That’s where the bus picks up passengers. You’re […]
