Holiday

The final weeks of term were always a great time for me as although I loved school, the thought of the 6 week holiday was always a great prospect. Not only did it mean Faith Camp was nearly upon us but the family holiday was nearly here as well. 30 years on from my first Faith Camp I am still just as excited about going again and having time to

Greater is He that is in me

This weekend Colin Urquhart brought a couple of very powerful messages to us as a church and the one in the evening really resonated with what I have been thinking about, meditating on and praying through over the past couple of months. He was talking about being an overcomer and having the expectancy in prayer and faith not for a fight but for victory. One of the key verses that

The Secret Place

Recently I have been challenged to look at my personal time that I spend with the Father in the Secret Place; this is a separate time from my Bible Study, it is learning to sit and be still with my Father, just to be in His Presence, no agendas, no asking for anything, just to sit at His feet to know His presence, His Grace and Love, to Worship Him

A Perfect Fit

I recently had the opportunity to see how these beautiful glass bottles are made, and how the stoppers are fitted. Because they are unique, the stopper will only fit the particular glass bottle it is made for, and fits so well that you can turn it and lift the bottle up by the stopper

Encounter

Over the past couple of weeks, as part of WHBCdaily, we have been reading about Solomon and his time becoming King and then building the temple. Following on from a previous blog where I talked about how much things changed in one generation from war to peace, I want to pick up on this and focus on a significant event that happened in Solomon’s life. I have read these stories

Strong foundations

It’s been fascinating to see the builders work on the new building going up next to the Sanctuary. At the moment its coming on so fast, almost out of nowhere there is suddenly a huge structure, after months of them working on the ground, and below ground. Of course, I’m referring to having good foundations in our lives. Most Christians would have made that connection very quickly, and gone straight to those foundations being the Bible. Reading the Bible gives you strong foundations right? Well I’ve been looking at the story of the foolish builder and the wise builder from Mathew 7. The foolish man built his house upon the sand and when the rain came the house collapsed, but the wise man built his house upon the rock, and

Idol Health Check

Reading through our Bible Reading Plan in January I was taken by a verse in Samuel: So Samuel said to all the Israelites, “If you are returning to the Lord with all your hearts, then rid yourselves of the foreign gods and the Ashtoreths and commit yourselves to the Lord and serve him only, and he will deliver you out of the hand of the Philistines. 1 Samuel 7:3 Plain and simple, to be wholehearted with God, we must have no other idols. To say that we obey God, that we read His Word, that we attend church is not enough if we are to really “love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul and all your mind.” No, to be fully committed to Him, to
