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,

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.

Hope in the face of doubt

“If you feel like you’re at the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on!* The God of Heaven is the God of great miracles and provision. He is holding the other end of the rope.

*Often attributed to Thomas Jefferson and Franklin Roosevelt although the actual source might be a proverb from the American West in a 1946 article in Pearce, T.M., “The English Proverb in New Mexico,” California Folklore Quarterly 5, no. 4 (1946): 354

God Sees The Best In You

Do you know people who only see the cup as half full? That’s not your God.

God always wants the best for you and sees the best in you. Sure, He wants you to “fix up” in those challenging areas of your life, but through it all, He’s rooting for you to get it right.

Imagine running in a stadium and you’re about to beat Usain Bolt in the 100metres; there’s someone cheering wildly in the crowds and shouting at the top of their lungs. That’s God cheering you on and waving a banner saying “You can do it!”. Just imagine that.

God sees the best in you, but how you see yourself matters. So today, look in the mirror, what do you see? I see greatness.

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
