Are you a fixer? If there’s a problem do you want to just get on and sort it out, fight for what you think is right or do what you can to make sure things go your way?….

There’s a beautiful prayer of Moses in psalm 90. In verse 14 he prays this… “O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.” What a wonderful desire! I decided to dig a bit deeper today and look at all the meanings for the six Hebrew words that make up this verse…

)These thoughts are following on from Saturday’s post and are based on this scripture)… ‘By love serve one another.’ How can we serve by the words that we speak?

I randomly opened my Bible this morning and the first words my eyes fell on were… ‘He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.’ What a beautiful truth to look at on Valentine’s day friends! This verse is so well known but I wanted to dig a little deeper into the Hebrew today. He
