“We call things ‘secular’ because we have neatly detached God from most spheres of life and confined Him to spiritual game-reserves called ‘sacred areas’ where we visit Him from time to time.”
Disturbingly true, isn’t it?
Just A Thought
Excerpt From: Greenslade, Philip. “Every Day with Jesus Jul/Aug 2013: The Great I Am.”

Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal comfort and a wonderful hope, comfort you and strengthen you in every good thing you do and say. (2 Thessalonians 2:16, 17 NLT)
How sweet to know that the Son of God has not only given us an eternal comfort, but also continues to comfort & strengthen our hearts in the paths He leads us on!
Prayer: “Be thou my strength and comfort this day and always. Amen”

Ever heard the following song:
Get up and try again, smile away that pain
Brush away that tear, dear child your Father’s near
He will always understand and lend a helping hand
Lovingly He’ll say, “Get up and try again”.
A little prayer for the rest of the week….
Dear Lord, help me to know that no condition is permanent. And that grey clouds are just passing clouds that will soon be replaced with bright skies of hope. Teach me to say, “this too shall pass” when am faced with difficulties. Help me to hold on, while trusting you, one day at a time. Amen
First post of 2014! So, Happy New Year to all Just-A-Thought (JAT) readers around the world. It is our prayer here that you’d continue to know the Lord’s blessings, keeping and enabling this year. Amen.
Also, thank you for your continued support, comments, follows, likes, shares and encouragement. JAT wouldn’t be the same without you all. Thank you so much. Here’s to another year of sharing the hope that comes from the Lord, above.
Finally, for the next couple of weeks, JAT will be taking a trip down into the archives to dig up some of the favourite posts from the past years. Watch this space…
