But, I am excitedContinue reading “Be Still and Be Certain”

The Truth, The Whole Truth and Nothing But The Truth

Imagine every Christian is standing before a judge. They’re then ordered to tell the gospel, but before the begin they must promise to say the truth. How many Christians would be able to do so?

Insecurities, shame, regret and why we hide

We all have things we regret in life. Most of us, if not all of us, have probably done something that causes us to feel guilty and ashamed. We’ve done things that we try to cover up.

The Certainty of The New Year…

To say that 2020 was a bit of a surprise is probably one of the biggest understatements in the world. Nobody expected to spend the majority of the year at home. Like many people, you maybe began the year with hopes and dreams, laughing and hugging loved ones whilst watching fireworks and sipping some bubbly.Continue reading “The Certainty of The New Year…”
