The Most Powerful Word in Marriage

The most powerful word in marriage is not “love”. It isn’t even “sorry”. No, the single most powerful word in marriage is: “OK”. The word “OK” originated in 1839 as an American abbreviation of oll korrect, a joke misspelling of all correct. It signifies something as being acceptable, and is generally used as a term of… Continue reading The Most Powerful Word in Marriage

Find Rest in the Path of Peace

Being at rest is better than being right. Would you agree? I used to unwisely merge the two, thinking that I would be fully contented and at rest only when I had offloaded what was on my chest and got others to see and agree with my viewpoint. Quite possibly I still do, far too often for… Continue reading Find Rest in the Path of Peace

Win The Battle To Remain At Rest

Being and remaining at rest actually isn’t all that easy. We jump every time the baby cries and turn each time our phone buzzes. We reach for our phones constantly to check our email, social media and chat updates, scroll through the headlines, or indulge in some idle surfing or game-playing.  Ironically, we are more… Continue reading Win The Battle To Remain At Rest

Only Jesus Brings Rest That Lasts

If one were to be absolutely honest, a natural thought one would have would be that it seems awfully limited and restrictive to have only one sensible choice. After all, inclusiveness, tolerance, and freedom of choice are the buzzwords and catchphrases of today. Everyone should have the freedom to live life the way they want… Continue reading Only Jesus Brings Rest That Lasts

Rest On A Solid and Righteous Foundation

We can only truly experience rest when there is a solid basis for it. It’s hard to be at rest when there’s something incomplete or owing, like when you have a debt that is not fully paid or when you’re still owing your boss or teacher some assignments. Even when we stop checking our accounts or… Continue reading Rest On A Solid and Righteous Foundation

Grace Flows When You Rest

If there’s one reason why you would want to pay serious attention to getting into God’s rest, it is this: God’s grace flows exclusively when you rest. God’s grace is the unearned, undeserved, and unmerited favour of God – it’s God making good things happen to you when you’ve done nothing to get it. God’s… Continue reading Grace Flows When You Rest

Do More When You Rest

Most people associate rest with slacking or doing nothing. And understandably, skivers who find all manner of excuses to shirk tasks or go on multiple breaks at peak periods are heartily detested by the hardworking souls who plug faithfully away at the work to be done.   It is no wonder that this idea transposes into Christianity,… Continue reading Do More When You Rest

Rest In His Victory For A Year of Victory

So all the champagne’s been finished, the party poppers have been popped, and the Auld Lang Synes have been sung. And here you are on New Year’s Day, nursing that persistent hangover and dreading the work that’s waiting for you back in the office, but deciding first to get down to the key business for… Continue reading Rest In His Victory For A Year of Victory

The Reason For The Season – The Song That Sums It All Up

Christmas isn’t Christmas without Christmas songs. I’ve always loved Christmas songs and carols, even as a kid. They always sound so joyous, melodious, and festive. I’d look forward every year to hearing them played in malls and restaurants from November all through to the new year. Of course, I started paying a lot more attention… Continue reading The Reason For The Season – The Song That Sums It All Up
