Safety Net…

The steps of a [good] man are directed and established by the Lord when He delights in his way [and He busies Himself with his every step]. Though he falls, he shall not be utterly cast down, for the Lord grasps his hand in support and upholds him. ~Psalm 37:23-24~ You may not know it or believe it but you have a fail proof safety net under and around you 24/7. It’s called the hand of God. We are the ones that allow the holes to form in the net when we decide to move away from Gods way and the principles of Gods word. By doing that we move, weaken and damage the net. A good man’s steps are directed and established by God. It says ‘He’ ‘busies’ Himself with our every step! He delights Himself in our way when we live His word and His ways. The thing…

How does it work?…

Something I was talking to God about today is how we pray about things in our lives and families. I said to him I really could have done without this writing material because of course my experiences give me writing material and I really would have rather done without this bit of experience what people are going through and what I have learnt from it. I have been praying about this particular situation for a long time, as a matter of fact a few years. When I would pray for all my friends and family every morning this particular need was always brought up. It was like praying in advance for something that hadn’t happened yet way before it would happen but that would happen one day. So it was a little bit baffling to me in line with thinking about Ephesians 3:20 He is able to do immeasurably more……

It’ll Work…

It’ll Work There are things that only yesterday used to work. Each day things in your life change without you even noticing. It changes in the tiniest increments barely visible to the naked eye or comprehensible by the mind. It changes in degrees, in seconds, in heartbeats, in flashes, in steps and turns, in a thought, in an attitude, in a decision or choice…. And all without our knowledge, observation, understanding, or seemingly our choice or permission. The thing is that every degree, second, heartbeat, thought, choice, is some kind of decision, either by our free will whether we are aware of that or not or by what circumstances life has thrust upon us, and even then as it is thrust upon us we have choices and decisions and reactions to make second after second after second. So when I come to the today of my life and that particular…

But!????

“I do want to do that…. But…” “I do like them… But…”… “I don’t want to buy that… But…” “I want them to come over… But…” For some reason or another sometimes we add a but to our statements and answers… I was telling my friend about something that I wanted… but… So we started thinking about the ‘buts’ that punctuate our conversations. She used this example: Why invite somebody when you don’t really want them to come…… But, we say to ourselves ‘it’s the right thing to do’, but really it’s for the wrong reasons!! Everything we do has a motive and we need to check that motive where it’s coming from….our heart or our head! We can still feel wrong but if our heart’s motive is right and we know it’s the right thing to do in God‘s eyes then God will change our feelings to line up.…

Some things I have learnt this last week…

1. I have a limit: I don’t know when it might come so I need to look out for it and get new strategies. Even if I am handling it ok right now, there is a point at which all of a sudden I start not coping. I need to be aware of that and that I can only do so much and then I have to walk away and not get pulled into solving a problem that I can’t solve. 2. Don’t play games and get sucked in: I am learning how to handle situations with people who are agitated or upset…. I am learning to keep calm, keep a steady tone, not get pulled into the ‘game’ playing scenario. 3.What the real issue is: I am learning that when people are upset there is often something else at the bottom of the whole thing, people deflect their agitation…

No time like the Present…

God is beginning to deal with you in certain areas of your life then some things will start coming out into the light and it’s probably not going to be pleasant…. We know that the pain of staying where we are is much worse than the pain of going through. When you are not prepared to work through these things it makes it hard to cope with today…. You can’t cope with today if you haven’t dealt with yesterday! The yesterday’s catch up on you. If this is where you are at it may be very difficult right now but remember the people closest around you don’t necessarily know what is happening… And it can be hard but God can give the grace to make it through in the best way. When you are avoiding your yesterday’s then you are not able to cope with today in the best way…
