Curve Balls and Heroes

Life has its curve balls, especially when you least expect it. No matter how well planned you are for difficult or disastrous times, there will always be some kind of curve ball that will knock you off your feet.

Matters of Inspiration

I have been going through a really rough time the last while. Having to make several tough decisions, work through several hurts with the family, and making peace with the past.

Crossroads – Small or Big

(This is a follow-up to the post Decisions - Small or Big.)

The more we can understand how he operates, the more time we spend with Him, the more easily we will recognise His voice.

Who’s Voice Is It? Part 1

Last week I began a series on Who's Voice is it?, with the main focus on how to determine whether or not it is the Holy Spirit, devil or you speaking, and how do you know when to respond and obey, and when to ignore the voices? Today's focus is on the characteristics of the … Continue reading Who’s Voice Is It? Part 1

Who’s Voice Is It? Introduction

They say talking to yourself is a sign of madness - a response to the voices in your head. But what if you are not schizophrenic, with multiple personalities: would they call you mad for responding to a voice called the Holy Spirit or the devil?
