Read Proverbs 10:19 (

If you’re like me, this scripture can come as a bit of a blow to your ego. I talk a lot. I love engaging in conversation. The Bible says that, from the fullness of the heart the mouth speaks, and my heart is pretty full.

There is nothing wrong with talking though, Jesus talked. It is when the tongue is not controlled, where it causes havoc. Whether it’s through lies, social media or from a heart that’s set on bringing hurt and destruction.

The writer talks about being sensible; know where your heart is, and God’s view on issues – and then speak.



Read Proverbs 2:6-8 (

It’s a new year! So there’s hope.
It’s a new season, a new chapter and there’s new possibilities.

Start the year off by seeking wisdom. If a bit of 2018 is still finding its way into your new year here is a tip. Give it to God. Move forward with His knowledge that will give you direction.

Have you thought about the following things at all?
A long, good life. Riches, honour, pleasure and peace. Being happy. Being energised. Being respected. Living a life without fear. Feeling safe.

I definitely have, because these things are not always easily attained in the world we live in.
It sounds a bit like Utopia right? The perfect place, just like heaven – probably not anywhere on earth!

But the question that always seems to follow these thoughts is, “HOW could this be possible on earth?”
