As Lazy As An Old Dog

When he came back to his disciples, he found them sound asleep. He said to Peter, “Can’t you stick it out with me a single hour? Stay alert; be in prayer so you don’t wander into temptation without even knowing you’re in danger. There is a part of you that is eager, ready for anything […]

Jesus Was Abandoned So You Wouldn’t Have To Be

I was reading through Matthew’s coverage of the Crucifixion a few days back. As Christians we tend to focus on the horrendous physical pain, stress and abuse that Jesus endured because of our sin. What is often overlooked is the consequences of our sin that Jesus saved us from. Death is one of those, but I believe much worse than […]

God Is Not Surprised By Our Actions

Moses’ Story I was reading through the story of Moses recently (found in Exodus 2). After being found on the river in a basket, Moses grew up in Pharaoh’s household, looked after by his mother. The bible doesn’t say much about his childhood or if/what he knew about his family origins, but it was apparent that his […]

Jesus and the Storm

“And when he got into the boat, his disciples followed him. And behold, there arose a great storm on the sea, so that the boat was being swamped by the waves; but he was asleep. And they went and woke him, saying, “Save us, Lord; we are perishing.” This passage from Matthew‬ ‭8‬:‭23-27‬ tells a […]

How We Pick Songs For STORYCHURCH

As a worship leader I am pitched songs a lot, both from inside and outside of my team. I really love to hear song suggestions from people and what way it is currently resonating with them. I’m a firm believer in what God can do in someone’s life, in and through a song. Unfortunately, this does […]

Don’t Listen To Them. Just Trust Me.

While he was still talking, some people came from the leader’s house and told him, “Your daughter is dead. Why bother the Teacher any more?” Jesus overheard what they were talking about and said to the leader, “Don’t listen to them; just trust me.” (Mark‬ ‭5‬:‭35-36‬ MSG) I love this. Jesus is making his way to […]

Consistent Prayer

I’ve never been good at praying consistently for the same request. I mean, it’s just not me. I hate bugging people, never mind God. If He didn’t answer it the first time I asked, then it’s probably a flat-out “NO”, right? I’m just going to leave that one and move on. Whatever. But, if you […]
