If you’ve ran any race, to win, not just to take part, you will know that a number of things are important in order to win. These are purpose, focus and discipline.  We can’t expect to win a race without a purpose. Purpose will provide you with the reason you are running the race. Your…

A devastating epidemic is leaving a trail of broken hearts and broken dreams in its wake. What is this tragic outbreak? It’s the epidemic of disappearing fathers, who are sorely needed.

The Equality Act 2010 makes it unlawful for an employer to discriminate against employees because of their gender. However, new research suggests that tech-savvy women might face gender discrimination in jobs at high-tech firms, partly due to mismanaged projects. It shows gender discrimination is still as prevalent in the UK as it was 20 years ago, and comes as International Women’s Day will be celebrated this week on March 8, for the 103rd year.

Do you need a fresh start? Even as believers and ministers in Christ, we’ve all sinned, made mistakes and made some wrong choices. The Bible says that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. But the good news is that we don’t have to stay separated from God in our sin. God…

Today’s verse, found in James 1:2, is interesting because it has the phrase “when” instead of “if.” You see, some people think that life is going to be all roses and sunlight. But if I told you that, I would be speaking from a closed Bible.  Whether you are a Christian or not, life guarantees one…

When it comes to standing in someone else’s shoes and feeling what others feel, the most frequently neglected area in which we do this is the area of pain.  John Fischer says  You can’t bring a cup of cold water to someone if you’ve never thirsted  You can’t heal a heart if your heart’s never…

As the world mourns the death and celebrates the life of Queen Elizabeth II, It’s often forgotten that she has the title of Supreme Governor of the Church of England. This title reflects her genuine Christian faith, which she often spoke about, and how Jesus was her inspiration who kept her going in good times…

Have you heard the popular song, “Don’t worry, be happy” or the phrase “don’t worry it’s really not that bad – everything will get better.” Are these words of encouragement or could this be denial of the pain and reality, the stifling down of emotions?  Thinking about these responses got me wandering. John had just experienced the earth-shattering, heaven-opening…

Recently, I watched a friend bury her daughter. Her heart was breaking apart with grief. The loss and loneliness are crushing burdens she carries every day. It seems almost sacrilegious to read today’s verse about rejoicing when we face trials with respect to my friend’s circumstances. Does God expect her to rejoice in this devastating…

‘Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves… Then do what is…

Our word for today is procrastination. It means the act or habit of putting off or delaying, especially something requiring immediate attention. Are you putting something off that needed to be done a few hours, days, weeks, months or even years ago? This something could be as serious as your health, finances, family, relationships, work,…
