ACCESS THROUGH THE BLOOD

Have you ever wondered what it must have been like, under the Old Covenant, to have had no access to God except through the high priest and not without a sacrifice? No intimate heart fellowship with the Father! No reassurance of the Father’s love! No access to the throne of grace! But…and I was taught never to begin a sentence …Continue reading →

MOLLY AND ME – SUBMISSION

Going “walkies” is the highlight of Molly’s day. We go out in all weathers. So far, we have walked in sunshine, in rain, in howling gales… but not in thunderstorms. I would rather risk Molly’s wrath than the fury from the skies. Thankfully, Molly is terrified of thunder! However, the weather isn’t the problem – Molly is. Although she submits …Continue reading →

MOLLY AND ME – SUSPICION

Strange, isn’t it, that my little dog who loves me and who, seemingly. can’t get enough of me, should be suspicious of me, and yet she is. I see it in her eyes when, at times she wants to sit on my lap but, when I bend down to pick her up, she moves away and won’t come near enough …Continue reading →

MOLLY AND ME – FEAR

Molly has developed an irrational fear. For some reason that I cannot understand, she is terrified of my fly swatter. Whenever I swat a fly (and they come in droves, uninvited, when I start to cook dinner) or kill a mosquito, she runs into my neighbour’s house (I live in a granny flat on the property of my son’s parents-in-law) …Continue reading →

MOLLY AND ME – WARFARE

Molly is a warrior. At least she thinks she is! She challenges every dog in the street, no matter how big or small they may be, as we walk by (as long as they are safely behind a secure gate or high wall, of course). All 5 kg of her is pure aggression, despite her being well-socialised as a puppy. …Continue reading →

MOLLY AND ME – DIET

Molly is on diet! Of course, she must be on diet because she’s a dog. Just as for we humans, not all foods are good for her. Besides that, she is a spayed female which means that, without careful control, she could put on weight and add strain to her elongated spine. It’s up to me, her human mom, see …Continue reading →

MOLLY AND ME – CONTENTMENT

“Me” time! Do you have “me” time?  From 5 to 7 in the morning is strictly my time – and Molly knows it. After she has had her little run outside to do the necessary – and sometimes that includes exploring the same garden she has explored dozens of times before – she comes inside and waits patiently for me …Continue reading →

MOLLY AND ME – PERSISTENCE

Molly gets ten out of ten for persistence. I take Molly for a walk every afternoon… Well, let’s be honest. Most of the time she takes me for a walk… actually, we go “drag racing”! She drags, and I race! You see, she hasn’t yet learned who is the boss and who is the dog and who is supposed to …Continue reading →

MOLLY AND ME – DISCIPLINE

At fourteen months, I guess it’s normal for Molly to have a little trouble with discipline. Like all human children, she also has a mind of her own. The problem, though, is that she doesn’t know what is good for her. If she had her way, she’d chew every old bone, or bit of discarded food she finds on the pavement …Continue reading →

MOLLY AND ME – TRUST

Molly is almost fourteen months old now. She reminds me of Abraham. When God called Abraham to leave his home country and go to a land He would show him, Abraham didn’t know God but he went as God instructed him. It took him many years and many mistakes and times of mistrust to get to know God. When the …Continue reading →
