The Time is Short…

Just snooze the clock And snuggle right back down – You can waste me But you can’t stop me! 🕰 Scrolling Facebook, Just a little catch up – You can waste me But you can’t stop me! 🕰 Browse the shops, Only a quick wander – You can waste me But you can’t stop me!Continue reading “The Time is Short…”

When the Burden Feels too Heavy

There’s verses you feel as though you’ve known all your life then you read them again and God shows you something new: don’t you just love that?! I’ve been thinking about these verses a lot the last few weeks after God opened my eyes to something obvious but that I’d never seen so clearly before…Continue reading “When the Burden Feels too Heavy”

But we’re not the only ones waiting… ‘therefore will the LORD wait…’ When our prayers aren’t answered straight away God is waiting too! He’s waiting forContinue reading “Encouragement in the waiting…”

Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away…

There’s no greater joy here on earth than to experience the sweetness of His lips and the love of His words!

Encouragement in the If Onlys…

If only…. then…. Ah Friends, those if onlys! If only this had or hadn’t happened then things would so different. Sadly this world isn’t perfect, it’s full of the effects of sin and that makes life hard, very hard at times! Martha and Mary knew this, their brother Lazarus was ill, they’d sent for theirContinue reading “Encouragement in the If Onlys…”
