A few thoughts following on from Tuesday’s post We all have a little sphere of influence, our lives either spreading a little of God’s love or not. There’s those at school or college and your life influences your friends and even your teachers. Then those at work you influence your colleagues, the teacher in aContinue reading “Influence”

All Grace…

We’re totally unworthy of God’s favour Friends and yet His word is full of rich promises to His people because He’s a loving Heavenly Father and in Christ we are worthy! One that I particularly love is this… ‘And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiencyContinue reading “All Grace…”

David in the Wilderness…

David, the most mentioned person in the Bible after Jesus, David who wrote so many psalms, David of who God said ‘I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.’ THIS David knew what it was to be in the wilderness!! David knew thatContinue reading “David in the Wilderness…”

Spot the difference…

Have you ever done a spot the difference puzzle? There are two pictures that at first glance appear identical but as look harder you notice subtle differences. Something not in the right place, out of line or missing altogether. As you find each difference you circle it to highlight it. This puzzle made me thinkContinue reading “Spot the difference…”

Ask for the Old Paths…

As I read and prayed over what I was to share today, wherever I turned I read the same thing, God’s judgement on Israel forewarned if they did not turn back to God because they had left His ways and gone in the way of those nations around them… ‘I will judge you in theContinue reading “Ask for the Old Paths…”

These things… What things had Jesus spoken and to who. Jesus had eaten supper with his disciples and washed their feet, Judas, that wouldContinue reading “These Things…”

What is Your Why?

What is our why? Why do we do what we do? There’s an incident recorded that happened soon after the miracles of the loaves and fishes where Jesus said this… ‘Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.’ The disciple thought Jesus said this because they’d only brought oneContinue reading “What is Your Why?”

Sitting by the Fire…

There’s something cosy about a fire, to sit by it and watch the flames dancing and feel the heat of it warming your body. But it’s of little use to us from a distance, we may be able to admire it if we’re not too far away, but we won’t feel the warmth of it.Continue reading “Sitting by the Fire…”

Which Skeleton are You?

The tree skeletons have fascinated me for several years but this year God opened my eyes to something new…. ….they are just like God’s people friends! Each of these trees are firmly planted and if we’re born again we have been planted in Christ,… ‘planted in a good soil by great waters, that it mightContinue reading “Which Skeleton are You?”

What are We Longing For?

I’ve just come to the end of looking at John’s first epistle with a group of friends and there’s one verse, right at the end that is really searching me and I felt led to share my thoughts. There’s a part of me that always wants to post just positive things but we so needContinue reading “What are We Longing For?”
