I have always had a soft spot for stationary any journals. My first ever journal accurately documents my determined journey of pursuing a relationship with a girl I fancied (who would later become my wife)! It is therefore a deeply sentimental source of pride, embarrassment, romance and cringe. It captures my prayers, my frustrations, my … Continue reading Why I (might be) getting myself another clunky journal
Have started a personal reading project. And book number 1 on my list was to re-read Kneeling with giants, by Gary Neal Hansen. I first read this book probably in 2014 (maybe 2013). So nearly 10 years ago. Coming back to it, was a delight. Hansen basically takes a 1 chapter to outline a method … Continue reading Kneeling with Giants – A Crude Summary

I'd be able to wake up at 5am most mornings and do whatever I needed/wanted for 3-4 … Continue reading Focused
I recently had a driving test - which I passed! (Sorry, not sorry, to keep going on about it). But in the lead up to the test I found myself pulling away from God. My Bible times got less intense, my prayers became fairly surface level and I found myself drifting. When I was working … Continue reading Time with God, when’s it’s been a while!
Just wanted to quickly share some good news from last week: I passed my driving test! To be honest it was a pretty nerve racking experience, I don't usually get too nervous for tests. But this time it was undeniable. Even the examiner told me to calm down! 😀 7 driving faults to my name … Continue reading Watch out Roads! – I Passed
There is a story that Jesus tells about a farmer who goes and scatters some seed. And for various reasons the majority of seed does not grow into plants which bear fruit. Some land on rocky ground, some are eaten by animals, some get drowned by the weeds. After telling the story Jesus explains that … Continue reading God’s Word – Make Time!
