God Thoughts


Journal | Need prayer? | Previous thoughts | Upliftment | About me



It is such an honour to meet you.

And since it is the first time we meet, let me introduce myself.

My name is Risa (like Lisa, but just with an R). 

When God created me, He must have looked at me and thought, 'I am going to give this one a love for words and books, and I may even give her the gift of writing.' And He did just that.

I cannot get enough of words. Give me a book and a quiet place, and I am happy. Or, if you want, give me a pen and paper (or computer!), and I am even happier.

I once read a sermon on John 21, where Jesus asked Peter if he loved Him. The first time, after Peter answered that he did love Jesus, Jesus said to him, 'Feed My lambs.' And the third time, He said, 'Feed My sheep.' In the sermon the question was asked, 'What are you doing to feed the lambs and sheep of Jesus?' As I had no idea what I was doing to feed the lambs and sheep, I asked the Lord to show me how He wanted me to feed His people. I got more than one answer, but the idea for this website was one of them. 

I don't think of myself as an excellent writer, still has a lot to learn, but, since the Holy Spirit knows everything, I asked Him to teach me to write. Writing the thoughts for this website are one of the ways He is using to teach me.

So, why don't you make yourself a cup of coffee, and we can visit together while you read my thoughts about God.
