Slaves, or being a son

Posted on January 16, 2020 at 7:06 0 Comments

Don't you realise that you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey? You can be a slave to sin, which leads to death, or you can choose to obey God, which leads to righteous living. Romans 6:16

I usually read a couple of devotions each morning as well as where I am up to in the Bible. Sometimes they seem to reinforce each other as they did this morning. John Eldredge in his devotional 'Restoration Year' spoke about Holiness and how it is the strength of our condition. He used…


Trouble... and breakdowns of the mechanical variety

'Call on Me in the day of trouble; I will rescue you, and you shall honour and glorify Me," says the Lord. so writes the psalmist in Psalms chapter 50, verse 15.

As a dad, and a farmer, I'm sometimes working very long days. When I'm working away from home on one of our other blocks, the kids can sometimes go days without seeing me when I leave early in the morning and get back late at night.

Wife Karen tries to get me gardening, and after 46 years she is slowly seeing me improve.

I am pretty involved with church, working as  pastor there 4 days per week (voluntary) for now. Also have 10 grand kids, not super close by but try to spend time with them.  Try to give my bride some time, and like to get out on the motor bike when I can.  We walk by the lake whatever mornings we can.  ope that helps. Blessings
