Easy and light…

Part seven ‘For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.’ Some say that God never gives us more than we can bear but I disagree, I think He does BUT He never gives us more than we can bear through Him, with His grace and help. ‘Cast thy burden upon the Lord, andContinue reading “Easy and light…”

Meek and lowly…

Part six ‘For I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.’ What a beautiful description of Jesus! ‘Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek andContinue reading “Meek and lowly…”

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…”

Goals in a Changing World

As I was reading in Corinthians this morning I began to wonder how many of us had set goals this year? Things we wanted to focus on, areas we wanted to grow in etc. We’re now a third of the way through the year and life is looking very different to what any of usContinue reading “Goals in a Changing World”

I couldn’t sleep early this morning and as I lay there wrestling through some things in prayer the birds began to sing. So I got up, bundled up in a couple of blankets and watched the morning come.

A servant…

I started to look at Romans this morning but I didn’t get further than the first verse, there’s so much in those first few words… ‘Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God,’ A servant – doulos – one devoted to another to the disregard ofContinue reading “A servant…”

But God…

There are so many emotions in the Christian’s pathway. We may be going through this day feeling overwhelmed… BUT GOD! Or maybe there’s something ahead that you dread… BUT GOD!

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…”

Bear Ye One Another’s Burdens…

‘Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.’ How do we bear one another’s burdens? Primarily in prayer and then in practical ways if we’re able. In this we fulfill the law of Christ. What law?… ‘Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thyContinue reading “Bear Ye One Another’s Burdens…”
