When you have an identity crisis.

Last night, as news about the tragic death of another celebrity filtered in, I read the headlines with shock and sadness. Within hours, online, many were asking, ‘how could this have happened?’ ‘Who was to blame?’ Was it social media? The Press? The courts? Everyone was asking if this could have been prevented? I know …

When the prison door opens…

Have you ever had a defining moment, where everything in your relationship with God changed? Shifted in some almost-intangible way? It might have been the moment when things finally ‘clicked’ for you, the point someone prayed for you? Or it might have been a dream, a vision, or particular church service or experience. But somehow …

God is not a one hit wonder

Back in November, I wrote about an amazing experience I had, Surprised by God. And at the time, if I’m honest, a little part of me thought, ‘well, that’s amazing…now it’s time to get on with it’. So, I dug deep, found my ‘Dunkirk spirit’, donned my British stiff upper lip and decided to march …

Practice what you preach

I spoke at church on Sunday, a message which had been nudging my ribs all week, called ‘When God takes you the long way round’. It was a whistlestop tour of the book of Exodus and the story of the Israelites’ long journey through the wilderness. I wanted to show that sometimes the things which …

Two weeks ago, I took my car for its MOT. The car was fine, passed the test but as I was leaving the shop, the mechanic mentioned that I’d need to replace my front brake pads and one of my tyres, ‘probably within a couple of months’. For some reason (unlike me, especially when it …

An encounter with a ‘ghost’?

I should say upfront, I don’t believe in ‘ghosts’.  I believe that when you die, you die. Your spirit leaves the earth,no lingering, no hanging about, no haunting.  Having said that, I still believe the supernatural world is very real.  I believe there’s an epic battle taking place around us constantly, a fight for what’s …

Are you destroying yourself?

This week, I’ve been gripped by another Netflix special; Marvel’s Jessica Jones. Jessica is a tortured, messed-up, alcoholic private investigator who has a secret – she’s also a superhero. She developed the gift of super strength after surviving a car accident which killed her whole family. She’s now mostly alone in the world, trying to …

A little bit of a spooky story…

I believe in the supernatural. I believe God can heal, that angels are real and that God hears us when we pray. I might as well admit it and get that out there. After I scribbled the last blog (The first night I met him), I was chatting to my dad who said he’d smiled …
