Where too now?

I'm back from Malta, and it's a fantastic new year. God is definitely good and gracious and full of love and kindness!

As it stands I'm planning to keep on blogging this year - its been helpful to me to help me process and think through different issues in the bible, and I hope it's been helpful to some others. But right now: I'm exhausted! I didn't realise just how bad Jet lag could be.

So I think I'm going to start posting again next week. That isn't a promise, but at the moment that's my plan - it'll hopefully give me some time to recover and get a few things done which need doing.

In the meantime...Happy New Year and God Bless! Rejoice in the LORD always, and praise him for all he has done: he has done marvellous things for his people!

The Sites to See

I only Support Children's Charities: This is a challenge about who we help and why we help them. Adults need help too.

Nothing More to Need: A profile of Christian Courage: Tim Challies shares the story of a family friend who has seen a lot of suffering yet it is this suffering that has been used by God to build her into the woman she is.

Finding myself in the Song of Songs: In this article Sharon tells us one thing she has learned from the woman in Song of Songs - it's a good lesson for all of us alike.

Samuel Pearce And God’s “Heavenly, Glorious, Melting Power”: "It’s easy for our devotional lives to revert to plodding through scheduled chapters in the Bible, and mechanically praying through a list of requests. Don’t you hate that? So what can we do to keep this from happening?"
