Making the Most of our Affinities

Week 38  (This is a short essay about affinities. I realized in writing it that it could become very personal and lengthy, but this is not about me. It is about each of us endeavouring to reach our potentiality.) This year my theme has been “Tea and Crumpets,” ...

Light a Path to Your Potentiality!

Week 37 “No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light.” (Luke 11:33) I have wracked my brain; years ago I heard a little song about having potentiality and...

Knowing With Certainty

Week 36 Death and taxes. “They” say that those are the only two things we can be sure of. They are wrong. And I am thankful. Certainty is a strong word, and powerful; it lacks no doubt. It is a Bible word used seven times. Luke admonishes Theophilus, and indeed us:...

Curiosity Began In a Garden

Week 35 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof,...

Promise of Serenity

Week 34 And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever. And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places;  (Isaiah 32:17-18) Few prayers are...

Right Thinking For Clarity

Today begins week 33, and in part, because of lack of clarity I have neglected weeks 31 and 32.  And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.  Isaiah...

Humility the Secret to Success

Week 30 “But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.”  James 4:6 This week I am doing a ladies conference and I am speaking about 3 of the most common words used among Christians: Love,...

Security

Week 29 If women were to list their top 3 needs, security would almost always be among them. 1 Peter 3:7 reminds me that our need for security is part of the mystery of our creation, a mystery of God’s divine design. Through God, Peter admonishes husbands that we are,...

You Have The Ability!

You Have The Ability! You do! Week 28 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.  Matthew 25:15 “Oh, I’m not good at anything.” How many times have you heard a...

Better Than Mediocrity

Week 27.  I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.  Revelation 3:15-16 I think we can safely say that God hates...
