Psalm 46 states, ‘There is a river that makes glad the City of God.’ The river of God in your life is unstoppable. It will never run out and will transport you into all God has for you. But the river does something else- it carries stuff away. You can’t
Cry Me a River Whether you call yourself an introvert, shy, quiet or just plain reserved, there’s a New You that supersedes the Natural You times a thousand. The bible says that you’re not a lake, a pond, a swamp or a flood. You’re a river. Rivers flow. They’re dynamic.
There’s a time when all water reaches ‘the bridge’ and goes under it. ‘The bridge’ is a moment in time when you need to forget about something that happened, stop trying to fix something that could have been and stop allowing what once was to affect what now is- because
THE DOWNSIDE OF LOVE is being taken for granted. And that hurts. It means that you’ve been used, with little appreciation of all of the sacrifices you’ve made. Yet it’s also the proof of love. Real love asks for nothing in return. It finally pushes the scales
At the end of time, sins of omission will be judged as equally as sins of commission. Living your own life, minding your own business, finding your inner you, loving you, pampering you and being a lounge room legend with only a tiny vision for the welfare of
The new thing is always repelled by the current thing because it lacks depth and richness. We adore depth because it’s stable. And stability means peace. And that’s a huge plus in a world of chaos. The new thing always starts out shallow, thin and inexperienced. Yet it’s
Pain will always be a part of your journey. The greatest remedy for a life of pain is a life of purpose. A life of purpose creates a journey where everything in it takes on a brand new meaning. Every ache and every pain is placed through a
