Hope – will you let Jesus rebuild you?

What happens when hope starts slipping away? Darkness descends. It is difficult to think or see anything other than the negative. Stuff happens. Sometimes from wrong choices we’ve made. Sometimes other people’s wrong choices impact us. Sometimes things happen and we don’t know why. Earlier this week I was listening to Amanda Cook’s song, City […]

Your hearts will heal

Earlier this week one of our children was reading to me from the Jesus Storybook Bible – Every story whispers his name, by Sally Lloyd-Jones, a fabulous children’s bible that in the Old Testament stories overtly foreshadows Jesus coming as the rescuer. On this day she chose to read The Servant King, recounting The Last […]
