Years ago, there was a TV series, Extreme Makeover Home Edition. In this program a group of experts completely renovated an old house or in some cases completely demolished it and built a new one. In that period the family was sent away for a vacation and pampering. On the last day they were brought […]

You’ve just made my month!

Jesus love-follower

How do you recognise a soldier in a large crowd of people? It’s the person wearing the army uniform carrying an assault rifle. How do you recognise a scholar? Obviously, by the school uniform.

God’s competitive advantage

I still remember this phrase from the time I was in the business world that always made me think. In a way it drove me to make sure that we remained ahead in a tough market. That phrase is competitive advantage. Let me use a simple example to explain what it means. Our children and […]

To be a mirror

I have to do two funerals in two days. I usually pay the children a long visit with the children so that they can tell me stories about their dad. Then it is easy to do the service – it becomes a little more personal. The two funerals are as far apart as the north […]

God speaks

I am often astounded by how God just never gives up. I can see in my own life how He has rescued me from the desert again and again. He doesn’t give up. If one way doesn’t work, he tries from another angle. James gives a glimpse into his life: I had an advantage over […]
