Since I first encountered Christ (Yahusha) at my first Passover in 2016, He has taken me on an awesome journey. Recently, after a time of illness, I decided to pour out on paper what I had discovered about Him. I just wanted to glorify Yahusha. The end result is the poem – Spiritual Wealth.Read More
Let me ask you. Are you anything like I was? Have you allowed something to cripple you, or slow you down or prevent you from moving in the Lord? Well this chorus tell us to Arise and Shine It’s time to get in action because Yahusha is coming soon!Read More
Have you ever watched the evening news and felt discouraged by how much darkness there is in the world? Have you ever wondered whether you at least can bring some light? This week we take a look at how we are expected to shine.Read More
Have you ever found yourself prostrate? Knocked back down by what life has thrown at you? Me too! But it’s not our natural position, the one God has called us to.
It’s time to wake up, get up and arise and shine.Read More
Part of our lifestyle as Christians is to sing songs of worship and praise to Yahuah. We might not know that Yahuah also sings them back to us! There is even a Bible version that tells us ‘He delights us with His songs’.
This week we dig deeper into the song Arise and Shine to see what He’s instructing us to do.Read More
Did your mum or dad say to you “Wakey wakey. Arise and shine!”?
Well, it’s something God is saying to us today.
He’s pulling back our bed sheets of ‘being comfortable with the status quo’ and asking us to arise and shine for Him. Are you ready?Read More
Hopefully these articles about the song: “Where should I go, seeking a refuge for my soul” have made you consider where, or to whom, you should turn.
You might have heard many times, like me, that the best thing to do in any situation, especially bad or difficult ones, is to turn to the Lord.
Go to God first, that’s the advice - easier said than done, right?Read More
How often in our lives do we feel that we’re striving along alone, having to endure temptation, often ending up giving in to enticement? That is when the knowledge of the existence of the Almighty God can be our saving grace.Read More
Having read about the song ‘Where shall I go seeking refuge for my soul’ a few weeks now, made me consider looking at it from a different angle. I thought about where I experienced something that made me ‘go to the Lord’. Though I wondered if the Lord would come through for me? I found that God can make a way where there seems to be no way!Read More
Let me ask, are you giving more consideration to the songs that you sing, as my colleague J. Caroline challenged us back in February?
Have song words taken on new meaning for you, or made you stop and think about their truth?
Well the first verse of Where should I go, but to the Lord? caused me to do exactly that.Read More
As I thought about the words of the second verse of the song, I remembered a line from last week’s article - “What Yahusha gives is so much more than just a shelter in times of trouble.”
The verse tells us part of the more for our soul is “manna from above”.
The Word, Yahusha the bread of life, is there to feed our soul at the beginning of the day. Yet sometimes we leave Him hanging. Why is that?Read More
Where should I, a believer in Yahusha Messiah, go to seek refuge for my soul? The question is almost rhetorical don’t you think? But, what Yahusha gives is so much more than just a shelter in times of trouble.
Shouldn't He be our soul mate?Read More
The first phrase of the song’s chorus, ‘where should I go’ caught my attention. It spoke to me of the prospects of my youth. It shouted ‘freedom’, the world as my oyster with nary a consequence. We often see what we want to see in this life without giving careful consideration to all the clues that tell us things just aren’t quite what they seem. When we wake up to the realisation, where should we go seeking a refuge for our soul?Read More
I spoke in last week’s article about my soul-care – and I’m still on the same subject. In my continued musing, deodorant was looming large in my brain. Yes, I know, you’re probably thinking, why? The soul can emit a noxious smell, the question is are we prepared to accept the deodorant offered by our heavenly Friend?Read More
There is a line in the song ‘I am Thine’ that goes “I long to rise in the arms of faith”, and we happily sing it wholeheartedly. But if you want to be in His arms of faith, you must give up control, and rely upon Him for every aspect of your life. Easier said than done, right?Read More
Have you ever been at the place where you need to lose a couple of kilos … ok, many kilos, and you set out on that path with good intentions? You’re rocking it on the first day, or couple of days – possibly a week. But then there’s that day…Read More
In my first instalment, I laid down a challenge. I asked that you contemplate the words of your favourite song and consider what you are asking God to do. I’d also challenged myself. I wasn’t expecting anything to make me think too hard. It turned out to be the opposite. Did you take up the challenge?Read More
