I have been deeply encouraged this past month in my walk with the Lord and in trusting where he has placed me. I have been feeling discontent for a long time now, I felt like I was going nowhere and was achieving nothing. This has been my constant prayer to the Lord, I wanted to understand why nothing seemed to be working out. I lay … Continue reading Wrapping up July (A Testimony of the past few months)
An important lesson to always know and embrace is that God is able to move within every situation. Sometimes we can quickly confine God to place/s within our lives.

This week I want to take some time to look at … Continue reading Hope is not lost!

It is a verse that I have seen come into fruition this past month and a truth that God speaks over all our live. ‘Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never … Continue reading Lessons I’m learning from: Next steps and God’s provision.
I had a driving lesson today, one issue I struggle with is that I rush. When I rush, I make mistakes because I forget to take in all that is around me. It made me think of my life in general and I tend to rush a lot through life. I always want to get things done so that I can move on to the … Continue reading Embracing Life: Don’t Rush
I was immersed in the beauty of this sunset this evening. Time seemed to slow down and my mind stopped racing. I was amazed at how the beauty of a sunset which is an ordinary experience is absolutely extraordinary. The way that it explodes all these incredible pastel colours over the sky. How it gave the water a new lease of life. How even those … Continue reading Sunset!

v 50 ‘Jesus said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace”‘. Luke 7 presents these one on one accounts between Jesus and others, they are intimate encounters which result in healing and forgiveness. Beginning with the faith of the Centurion, which is not face to face but an intimate demonstration of faith. We also see the depth of Jesus’ emotional connection … Continue reading Lessons I’m learning from: Luke 7 (Come as you are)
Luke 1v14 ‘He will be a joy and a delight to you, and many will rejoice because of his birth’. I was going to do chapters 1-4 but on reflection there is much to learn from the first chapter. In honesty, when I decided I was going to read Luke’s gospel I was going to skip the first four chapters so that I could get … Continue reading Lessons I’m learning from: Luke’s gospel, Chp 1.
