On this page, you will find weekly devotional articles which I hope will challenge and encourage you on your journey.

His Promise Still Stands

What promises has God made to you? It is in times of trouble that we need to remember his word to us. “Not one of all the LORD’s good promises to Israel failed; every one was fulfilled.”  (Joshua 21:45) Yesterday I was listening to the beautiful song “Do It Again” by...

Always in Reach

During the times when you feel most cut off, most isolated, God is there. “I am with you always even to the end of the world” (Matthew 28:20) In summer we love to venture out into BC’s beautiful mountains to hike and camp. It is so good for the soul to get out of...

Discouraged? Do it anyway!

“It is Me they are rejecting, when they reject you…” “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ (Matthew 25:40) Life can be discouraging. Living in a far from perfect world, we...
