Because Jesus has Risen…

By March 31, 2018 Blog

1. He’s the God He always said He was. 2. He’s the Saviour we always hoped He’d be. 3. He’s the Lord that the enemy always feared would triumph. 4. Death is dead. More than dead – it is defeated, humiliated, laid bare. 5. Jesus took our sins to the grave and left them there. 6. Jesus stepped out of the tomb into new life, and that new life is ours. 7. Our old lives are like the grave clothes left …Read More

He’s with Me.

By January 14, 2018 Blog

When you’re feeling battered and squashed, remember Jesus. … Because He is God, He is enthroned above the flood. Because He is Man, He steers us through the storms. Because He is God, the book has been written. Because He is Man, our story is His. Because He is God, He is beyond my understanding. Because He is Man, He is my closest Friend. Because He is God, His future will prevail. Because He is Man, my past will not. …Read More

Silencing Satan

By October 31, 2017 Blog

Christians believe in the devil. We’re meant to, at least. But we can fall into extremes when thinking about him. Either he’s not there at all (and a bit of a joke), or he’s everywhere – to blame for our ingrowing toenails and lost socks. However we think of him, the devil is there and he’s deadly serious. He’s there when we lose our temper and lash out. He’s there when depression sucks us down and we feel we can’t go …Read More

But I can’t DO it!

By June 23, 2017 Blog

“Do not worry”, says Jesus in the sermon on the mount (verse reference, Matthew 6:25-34). So we worry, (or at least, I do). We worry to start with, because that’s who we are. And then we read this verse … and worry MORE, because we’re disobeying God. Telling us not to do something only shows us how impossible it is to obey.  Like telling ourselves to “be purple”. No amount of willpower makes it better. So what do we do, when we can’t …Read More

Sunday slot

By August 3, 2016 Blog

Sorry there’s no blog this week – we’re in Keswick, enjoying the lovely lakes!  As part of the week I gave a 4 minute testimony, and it’s airing along with a fab sermon (and some rousing hymns) on Radio 4, this Sunday. If you fancy listening, (and even better, praying since it’ll go out to many people), then go here. Thank-you!   Share…FacebookTwitterTumblrPinterestGoogle+StumbleUponDiggemail

Dear Me

By March 7, 2016 Blog

What do you do with the past?  The ways you’ve been broken?  The things that you broke? What do you do with the voices?  The accusations?  The lies? Jesus died.  But not for me. Jesus died. But not for this. No. There is no sin that the cross does not cover.  There is no pain that Christ cannot heal. Listen to this.  A letter that a dear friend has written to her younger self.  A letter that shows what it means …Read More

Shame on You

By January 18, 2016 Blog

January is built upon shame. The drinks you shouldn’t have had. The gym you should have joined. The presents you shouldn’t have bought and the debts you need to pay. The relationships you need to rebuild, the boss you just can’t please, the kids you’re poisoning with fish fingers, the resolutions you’ve already broken, the recycling you should have taken out. Some of it matters and some of it doesn’t, but it’s hard to tell the difference.  I’m ashamed of my sin and …Read More

Why I love Him

By December 9, 2015 Blog

He loved me first. He’s never too busy. He treated men and women equally in a time when no-one else did. Everything I love was made by Him. He invited me into His family. He will never abandon me or leave me or hurt me. He knows me inside-out and still, He stays. He hates injustice and abuse. He is Lord over all creation – yet He made Himself a tiny dependent baby. When the soldiers said, “If you’re God’s son, come down from …Read More
