Called.

Called. ‘When I consider your heavens,     the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars,     which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them,     human beings that you care for them? You have made them a little lower than the angels     and crowned them with glory and honour. You made…

Loved.

Loved.   ‘Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.’ 1 John 4:8 ‘We love because he first loved us’ 1 John 4:19 ‘love one another as I have loved you’ John 13:34   Read: Genesis 1:26-28 and 2:18-24 Some sickness is easy to diagnose, like blotches on skin or a fevered brow. …

Dust and Breath

‘Dust and Breath’   ‘The Spirit of God has made me; the breath of the Almighty gives me life’Job 33:4 Read Genesis 2:7 and Job 33:4 Standing on the edge of our own mortality can be the strangest place to be. Yet it is a place every one of us will stand one day. Every…

David drew a breath, “Actually, God runs the place” he said calmly, his…
