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!


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.

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

(Excerpt from Richard Daly’s God’s little book of Hope)

Romans 12:12







On Thin Ice

Hard pressed, pushed to the wall
Till it feels like walking on thin ice;
When reason and logic seems more appealing
Than trust in a promise of providence;
When sight and the now more desirable than
Faith and hope in a better future.

But, we refuse to give in to the lure of the temporary
And yield only to the leading of the Dependable Hand.
In a world that constantly seeks to claw us in,
We pray that You would preserve our faith, Lord,
Till thin ice becomes a sure, immovable Rock of safety.
Help us look to You alone, the Author and Perfecter of our faith.

In His Hands

“Many things about tomorrow

I don’t seem to understand;

But I know who holds tomorrow,

And I know who holds my hand.” – I. Stanphill


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


Hope Springs Eternal

We have a hope that never dies;
One that never fails.
Be You Lord, beneath us to sustain;
Within us to purify;
Before us to lead;
Around us to protect;
Behind us to restrain us; and
Above us to draw us towards You in word and deed.*

Every blessing, with prayers
