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”

Some New Year Thoughts

As I’ve contemplated the New Year these words have been running through my mind. ‘See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.’ Friends, as we enter this New Year we’re to walk carefully, wisely, redeeming the time. Why? Because the days are evil.Continue reading “Some New Year Thoughts”

Sacrifice and Surrender = Joy and Peace

I started reading 1 Corinthians but didn’t get any further than this description of who Paul was writing to ‘to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints…’ ‘Sanctified’. ‘Called to be saints!!’ So I dug a bit deeper, what exactly does it mean to be sanctified and a saint? Sanctified –Continue reading “Sacrifice and Surrender = Joy and Peace”

God Will Provide

He didn’t understand why or how but he obeyed regardless! It’s easy to forget that faithful obedience includes obeying whenContinue reading “God Will Provide”

He’s waiting forContinue reading “Encouragement in the waiting…”

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…”

Glorifying God in the mundane…

Have you ever wondered how you can glorify God in the mundane of day to day life? How about starting with this… 1 ‘Give thanks unto the Lord; 2 Call upon his name: 3 Make known his deeds among the people. 4 Sing unto him, 5 Sing psalms unto him: 6 Talk ye of allContinue reading “Glorifying God in the mundane…”

Peace, Be Still…

Jesus ‘went into a ship with his disciples: and he said unto them, Let us go over unto the other side of the lake. And they launched forth.’ You’ve probably read this many times but look again, we don’t read of any hesitation by the disciples, Jesus commanded, they simply obeyed! Yes, they were HisContinue reading “Peace, Be Still…”
