Faith in what or whom?

Faith in what? Many people lose their faith in religion. That’s not hard because religion is a bunch of a lot of man made rules governed by humans that are weak and frail and supposedly represent God, combine that with Gods laws which they have also twisted and complicated… when really they are so simple… “Love the Lord your God will all your heart soul mind and strength, and love your neighbour as you love yourself” ~Mat 22:37-40~ And He replied to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind (intellect). [Deut. 6:5.] This is the great (most important, principal) and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as [you do] yourself. [Lev. 19:18.] These two commandments sum up and upon them depend all the Law and the Prophets. I know I…

The Holy Grail of Love

Our mothers and our fathers can not save us and rescue us in the way we long for them to. As children our natural instinct, which is actually perhaps a supernatural instinct is to look to them for all of that. Sadly there are so many parents which devastate this undertaking to care for us, by their own frailty, their wounds and weaknesses or even by who they have become now, which may be just very hard or cold.Where did all this come from in them? Ironically from the same type of wounds that we may have received from them, either purposely or unwittingly. So still today, whether they have hurt us or not, we are longing for this rescue, saving, nurture and so much more from them and they may not themselves be able to give or receive what it is we long for. This supernaturally natural instinct is…

Its complicated…

Its complicated…  Just thinking about the complications in our lives… Sometimes it feels as if there are a million loose ends in our life… (yes I know it’s a slight exaggeration). Sometimes it feels like things are unravelling or that we know in time they will unravel. What will happen when…? What will I do if…? What about…? We don’t know what to do now, we don’t know what we will do when and if things unravel like we imagine. Sometimes they never end up unravelling…. The one thing that I hold onto when I feel like this is my faith. My belief in God’s best plan for my life. I have seen him come through in every situation I have faced… No I don’t know why, I don’t know how, I don’t understand it all, I don’t understand a lot of it but I will trust in him, and…

The gift of love is eternal… indelibly loved!

The gift of love is eternal… indelibly loved! The gift of love is eternal. When we give love, it just keeps giving. The precious words ‘I love you’ are never wasted even if there is no response to you sharing your love. Love makes and indelible impression on people’s’ hearts. It may not show that it has hit its mark today, but the mark is there and hopefully one day it will be acknowledged. I remember long long ago when I didn’t know how to say ‘I love you’ but the ‘I love you’s’ were in me. I didn’t grow up hearing those words, I just kind of knew I was loved. I learnt to love through my now husband and his precious mum ♥ My second mum. Love was their language and I felt the love, I knew I was loved and I was told I was loved. I knew…

What does it all mean?

What does it all mean?   Have you been pondering the meaning of life? I have. With more and more crisis happening all around the world and the travesties that are occurring, diseases, disasters… it all leaves me feeling that so much of what we treasure might just actually be meaningless. The more I hear of the world news, the less I want to eat lavishly, shop extravagantly, buy unnecessarily, spend time frivolously, have more material possessions, the latest this and the latest that… We take none of these things with us.  I find that ‘things’ are losing their meaning to me. I want to use my time so much more wisely, give where the needs are, pray for those suffering, use my influence for good in every way I can. The things that used to hold some attraction have seriously become tarnished and the amount of waste in our lives is beginning to…

What are things really worth after all???

Ecclesiastes 2:1-11 “I said in my heart, Come now, I will test you with mirth; therefore consider and behold goodness; this also is vanity. I said of laughter, It is madness; and of mirth, What does it do? I sought in my heart to drag my flesh with wine, yet leading my heart with wisdom; and to lay hold on folly, until I might see where the good for the sons of men might be, what they should do under the heavens all the days of their life. I made my works great; I built houses for myself; I planted vineyards for myself. I made gardens and orchards for myself, And I planted trees in them, of all fruit. I made pools of water for myself, to water the forest shooting forth trees. I bought slaves and slave women, and sons of the house were mine; also livestock, a herd…
