Your mind: How to fight for your it.

Our minds literally control so much of our lives. That is why God instructs us to keep ours, to protect it. I discuss how in my New Podcast!

God’s timing: slow and suddenly…

I listened to a sermon today where Joyce Meyer talked about how God’s timing is perfect but to us can come across as slow or suddenly. I have noticed how in my own life, my character and attributes such as peace, patience, self-control, joy, long-suffering have developed majorly when I was going through hard times. When I thought I could not take it anymore, I took that feeling to God and….guess what…I could take more. Yes it felt really uncomfortable but growth generally isn’t all that comfortable. So this morning I want to encourage you; in the hard times do not focus on yourself and what you believe you can/cannot take. Keep your eyes,mind, ears, heart, soul, spirit on God. He is always, always working things put for your good.

Blessings!

When you start to worry about loved ones…

I have spent the past couple of days worrying about travels a friend of mine is about to take. I had familiarised myself with the not so nice ‘sick with worry’ feeling and as the leaving date arrived, I had a mini revelation. I realised that just because we have labelled it normal or understandable to worry about certain things, it does not mean it is right/good. In that moment my mind also opened up to the (obvious) fact that God can (and does) look after them better than I can. Immediately the sick worry left and I started singing along to my worship cd (this revelation took place while I was driving). Praising and thanking God. 

Some things our loved ones go through do fill us with worry and dread. While they seem mind boggling to us, God is in control.

Peace!

The gift of Prayer part 1

In the run up to Christmas I believe that giving others the gift of prayer is one of the most powerful things you can do. It is a lifetime investment in their lives and helps them in ways they did not even know they needed help. My mum came home from a prayer meeting yesterday and when I asked her what she had been praying about, she told me it was for her children. I cannot begin to properly explain how comforted and safe I felt. You see my mum is a prayer warrior; a woman who spends dedicated time submitting her battles, worries and successes to God. It is one of the main things I learned from her and an area I am growing in.

So I thought what better way to spend the run up to Christmas than praying for people/ a specific person/ situation. Today I am praying for all those who have lost people due to war and hatred. I pray that they will be comforted by God and that He will touch their hearts and minds, that they will be able to forgive the perpetrators and live free from the prison of unforgiveness.

Let the Lord establish you.

The past few months have been filled with what I can only describe as miracles. From God opening doors to promotions, answers to prayers that have been prayed for years and Him giving me ideas and opening my eyes to new ways of seeing and being. I have been thanking God for these things and really just focusing on getting to know Him more. Why? Because I have seen that when my focused changed to getting to know God better and growing in my communication with Him, even if nothing in my circumstances changed, my perspective did and I was filled with joy and peace. I now understand and see clearer that I am not on this earth for me but for Him; that my ultimate calling is to live according to His will and not mine masquerading as His.

This morning my bible verse is:
2 Thessalonians 3:3

3 But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one.

Indeed the Lord is faithful and the more I take my eyes off myself and circumstances, the more I see it. I see how he has saved me from myself and different things that could (and really should have) derailed me. But He has and continues to be my guard.

He can be yours too.

Blessings xoxo
