Strength for Each Task (Reblogged)

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”

Get Up and Try Again (Reblogged)

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”.

As you go through the week, keep this in mind: No matter what has happened in the past, the Lord is closer to you than your very breath!

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….

Smooth mountains (Reblogged)

I’ve heard it said before: ‘child, if the mountain were smooth, you couldn’t climb it’.

There might be a reason for the mountain, and a purpose for its roughness. Wait patiently on the Lord to see you to the top!

Why We Crumble (Reblogged)

“We do not crumble from the pressure from the outside, but often from the hollow within”- the hollow created by the absence of God in our lives.

May you know the in-dwelling presence of God in your heart and mind this year, and always.
Blessings,

Love is Giving

1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God…14The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.” John 1:1 & 14

It is so easy to get sucked into the festivities, the buying of gifts, wrapping of presents, travels, jingle bells, etc, and miss out completely on the very essence of Christmas.

Christmas is about a demonstrated love – God taking the first step to bring us back to himself through his Son Jesus. Now, gifts and turkey carvings are delightful, but what’s more delightful is that God desires a relationship with us- not because he needs relationship by the way, but because we were made for relationship. In him, with him, we find our true selves and purpose.

So this Christmas, remember Who it is really about and do make some space and time for Him.
Have a blessed Christmas time.

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.
