In God's Strength… - Do you sometimes feel alone, weak, or incompetent to do the work our Lord has set before you? …to live out your calling and make a difference? …to glorify God in all you do and to proclaim the good news? There are 3 important lessons we can learn from the apostle Paul in 2 Timothy 4:17.
All for Your glory... - While working through one of our online group studies this week: Lies Women Believe, I was reminded about our intentionality around how we spend our time. What is most important in your life? What takes the most time in your day? Is the way you spend your time aligned to your purpose and calling?
Die belangrikste is: LIEFDE! - 1 Korintiërs 13:13 (NV): “En nou: geloof, hoop en liefde bly, hierdie drie. En die grootste hiervan is die liefde!”
Renewed Hope! - Over recent months God has placed in my heart an urgency to pray for revival and renewed hope for our countries, for our communities, for our leaders, our churches and for our families. The time is urgent… There is a new awakening and God is stirring more hearts than ever toward the TRUTH.

Are we so busy working and serving (and in many instances, doing what is right and what we were called for) that we don’t have time to love, honour, worship and learn from our Lord?
To know our Heavenly Father… - We have started with a new online series on IDENTITY. Our guest speaker, Lucinda Smith presented us with a pertinent question: Do you truly know who God is? Do you know His character and nature? I’ve previously also shared this profound quote from A.W. Tozer: “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us”.
Bubbling fountain of living water! - What do you thirst for most in life? Do we allow God to fill us or are we constantly running on empty – looking and searching for more in all the wrong places?
