Over the last decade I have heard people talking about FOMO. If you don't already know, FOMO stands for FEAR OF MISSING OUT.

As I write this our nation is in lock-down over the covid 19 and all around me in social posts, political posts, news, emails and web calls are people longing for things to go...

In you, O Lord, do I take refuge; let me never be put to shame! Psalm 71:1

Shame. It entered the world when we ate the fruit and exposed our nakedness. 

Shame is what keeps us vigilantly manipulating our public images, throwing up misdirection with perfect looking photos, saying we are fine through fo...

As Eve stood gazing at the fruit on the tree, she was entertaining the serpent’s silky words: “You won’t die if you eat this fruit. God is lying to you! He doesn’t want you to share his wisdom. If you eat this fruit you will be like God, you won’t die!”

Since I first grew out of the vine, I have spent years and years, and all I have done is just to rest in the vine. When the time of Spring came I had no anxious thought or care. The vine began to pour it's sap into me, and to give the bud and the leaf. And when summer came, I had no care; and in the...

In Romans chapter 7 Paul talks about this struggle with sin..my devotional this morning brought out the that Paul never names the sins he struggles with specifically. Only that he is powerless to resist sin, doing the things he does not want to do to the point that he proclaims "Oh the wretched man...

Jesus in Luke 9 - Then he said to the crowd, “If any of you wants to be my FOLLOWER, you MUST TURN FROM your selfish ways, take up your cross DAILY, and follow me."

This reminds me of Andrew Murray's book "Abide in Christ" where he talks about Christ as the vine and his follower as a branch attached...

A friend of mine who recently got a copy of The Purity Driven Life asked me what my personal strategies were in dealing with sexual temptation.
