Testimony


Every year around the 20th of May my wild unkempt garden transforms into a place of breathtaking beauty.

God is just as reliable in transforming wild and unkempt lives ... he changed mine.

Reflection:
Psalm 107:2 New King James Version (NKJV)
"Let the redeemed of the Lord say so."

New Leaf


It is time I turned over a new leaf.  I have been working far too many hours and setting aside things that are important.

Reflection:
Psalm 106:43-44 New International Version (NIV)
"Many times he delivered them,
but they were bent on rebellion
and they wasted away in their sin.
Yet he took note of their distress
when he heard their cry."

also
Lamentations 3:22-24 New International Version (NIV)
"Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him.”"

Rejoice


Reflection:
Psalm 105:3-4 New International Version (NIV)
"Glory in his holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
Look to the Lord and his strength;
seek his face always.

Flames of fire



Autumn colour is beginning to light up and burn.

Reflection:
Psalm 104:2-4 New International Version (NIV)
"The Lord wraps himself in light as with a garment;
he stretches out the heavens like a tent
and lays the beams of his upper chambers on their waters.
He makes the clouds his chariot
and rides on the wings of the wind.
He makes winds his messengers,
flames of fire his servants."
