Don't take your physical location lightly

YOUR physical location "...He determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live..." Acts 17:26 A unique thought popped into my mind in regards to a person who influenced my life greatly while I lived in a 'retirement town' with merely 3000 people back in the day. I moved from the city to Stilbaai with my family in my final year of high school. The following year I joined a Bible study group "with a bunch of old ladies" They were not much liked by the traditional church, who in that same year kicked me out too because of my adult (Acts 2:38) baptism. I was by far the youngest in the group. Most of the ladies where in their 40 and 50's - roughly the age I am today.

The terrifying sound of fire... (and my b'day)

Its Saturday, 4 July 2020 It is 22 hours later. I walk into my parents house downstairs. I hear that "NEW" yet very OLD sound. What has always been a tremendous joy in my life suddenly caused my heart to freeze for the first time, 22 hours later! I suddenly realised! I said "Mom - that's it! That is the sound that caused me to look up last night and see the flames just in time." Wowoom, wowoom, wowoom... the sound of a fire going strong. Last night, I was on my couch, busy with a very serious conversation that took my mind off the fire and the smoke in the house. The fire has been going an hour and a bit and for the last half hour my dad and I could not figure out where the smoke was coming

I press on to take hold

of that for which

Christ Jesus took hold of me
