Public vs. Private (Reblogged)

“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?

Gray Clouds (Reblogged)

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

Every blessing, with prayers….

The Power of Gratitude

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! Learn to appreciate the people around you. No one is an island. We all need somebody. A cheerful look brings joy to the heart (Prov 15:30), in the same way that a grateful person makes you want to go all out for him/her. Sure, there is plenty you do not have, but there is much you do have if you have people around you.

Appreciate the smallest of gestures and you’ll find that you feel better for doing so and you may also make someone else’s day.

Saying “Thank you” costs you nothing, but you can earn much favour with those you truly appreciate.

Rest Assured

Father, help me believe and rest on this simple but reassuring truth: that whatever you allow into my life will work for my good (cf Romans 8:28). Impress this thought deep into my spirit so that it will bear me through any sort of situation that comes my way. This I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen

Morning into Dancing

“You have turned my morning into dancing”  Psalm 30:11.
“The wise King Solomon said ‘For everything, there is a season’ and goes on to list many events in life. When you’ve cried all your tears, dance. You’ll be surprised how therapeutic it can be”

Psalm 30:11 & 2 Samuel 6:14

Palace or Desert

“God raised Moses in a palace in order to use him in a desert. He raised Joseph in a desert in order to use him in a palace.” – Ravi Zacharias

Whether you are currently in a palace or in a desert, never lose sight of the fact that God’s plans for you are good and would bring you to an expected end.

Rather than being unhappy or even fearful about where we are, and looking around for other options, perhaps we should be praying: “Father, You have placed me here at this time. How do You want to use me? How can I be available to You so that You can work out Your purposes in my life in this place?”

Every blessing, with prayers

“Here I am, Lord”

Think about this for a moment please- God is not interested in your abilities, so much as does your availability. We will literally astound ourselves, and others, if we really made ourselves available to be used by God.

“Here I am Lord, send me!” Isaiah 6:8

Give it a go…
Every blessing, in Christ Jesus
