‘You’re Destined for Great Things’, What It’s Not

Perhaps like me you’ve been told “You’re Destined for Great Things” and you’ve struggled to know what that means. Today’s blog is a short reflection on what that phrase doesn’t mean. And I’m sharing it with you today because I felt God’s Spirit this…

The Undistracted Martha

An important story with important truths is found in Luke 10: 38-42. I’ll include it below so you also can read and glean from it. Luke 10:38–42 (NLT): Jesus Visits Martha and Mary 38 As Jesus and the disciples continued on their way to…

Like Lambs Among Wolves

This morning, the devotional journal I am working my way through led me to Luke 10:1-16. What a powerful passage! I’d encourage you to go an read it, taking time after to prayerfully reflect and journal. I wrote these words in my digital bullet…

Don’t Be Shady: You Were Meant to Shine

I preached today here in Saskatoon at my home church, Westside Pentecostal. (The sermon can be found online here in the coming week.) And it was a timely word, a word worth turning into a blog post. And here’s why I think it’s worth…

Into Your Hands Jesus, I Commit My Life

My journal entry from today’s devotions. It was with a fierce determination that you entered this day, the day we call Good Friday, over 2000 years ago. I love you too Jesus. I can’t imagine, not really, what that day must have been like…

God’s in the Waiting

Be still my soul,  God is in the waiting. He’s present, patient, working. Sometimes I see Holy Spirit at work, others times I don’t – but I know God is always at work. From ages past no one has heard, no ear has perceived,…

Change the Way You’re Speaking to Yourself: Personal Growth Reflection

Growing up it happened on multiple occasions that I heard these words from my Mom, “Watch the way you’re speaking to me.” I deserved it. There was an attitude in my words, and likely my body language too, that was coming full force at my…

Living Worthy of the Call & Making Every Effort to Maintain Unity of the Spirit

Unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace is a biblical imperative, and learning from the dialogue of others can strengthen our common witness. Paul, in his letter to the Ephesians, begs us to live a life worthy of the calling. So, how are we doing?

She Believed God Called Her, So She Did.
