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. First the blackbirds sang and then as it got lighter more and more birds joined in the chorus of praise to their
‘Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.’ So what is this love of God that believers are to love one another with?

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?…. Friends, if we know Jesus as our Saviour and are looking to Him, then we don’t need to fight alone, even when we don’t feel God’s presence, He still goes with us…

Most of us have family and friends, food and a home to live in and so much more. Following Jesus isn’t hard Friends, those commands in the Bible aren’t just a list of rules
Impossible shouldn’t be in the believers vocabulary… ‘for with God all things are possible.’ Do you have big prayers? Then pray then, pray them in faith, believing for with God ALL things are possible! Yes, all things are according to God’s will, Yes, God knows the beginning from the end and He decreed it before the world began but prayer
How can my life glorify God? What do I do to live a life that glorifies God? Have you ever asked yourself that question? It’s one I’ve often thought about and prayed over.

We may live in peace where we live but for the Christian there’s a constant war being waged. The enemies of our soul,
Kept! There’s only one thing that keeps each precious child of God and that’s God’s power working in us through the Holy Spirit helping us to exercise our faith to trust in God. We are… ‘kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.’ By God’s power alone we are… Kept
When we look at those in the Bible who loved the Lord, those like David about who God said…’I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.’… It’s so easy to feel not enough, to feel that our lives are far from what they should be. I certainly do
Have you ever been really annoyed at, argued with or hurt by someone?. I have and it’s not always been someone I don’t get along with, sometimes it’s been those closest to me. Why?
