Gods Words for your life….

                          So it was a tough week…. Anyone else? My beautiful friend gave me these verses that REALLY spoke to me. I mean they spoke to me more than verses usually ever do… They were words of LIFE and PEACE to me. Things are getting tough. When you stand up for your faith… people are going to question you, they are not going to agree, but stand up for it…. Stay close to God. Matthew 5:12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. John 15:18 If the world hate you, you know that it hated me before it hated you. 2 Corinthians 12:10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I…

The Valley Between

There is a valley between that elusive place of peace and happiness and the real life that we live in. I have been chasing peace and happiness…., just simple peace and happiness…. not even immense serenity and overflowing joy, just peace and happiness, a life without drama, a life with no illness, no doctors, no forms and paperwork, no out of the ordinary problems or dramas, a life without ill loved ones, people struggling, injustice and the list goes on. I believe life has a higher purpose and that is where I find my meaning. The things that used to bring me wholeness, joy, mean ing etc just don’t do that anymore… I see things through an eternal perspective and I know things here just keep getting more difficult, complicated and the way the world is going… diabolical. The more I hope for this peace here on earth the more elusive it seems. I…

Making peace with the pieces…

Making peace with the pieces. I am having a melancholy moment. I am always letting go… The past is the past and its gone really, even though I continually try to drag it into the present. Fragments of the past remain with me here today and its up to me to keep sweeping them away when they trouble me, or to find the pieces, put them together and then shelve them after I have made peace with the pieces. Sometimes I come across a group of fragments that create a beautiful image, a memory of something precious and when I find them I can fit them together to make a whole picture and keep this treasure together in a frame on my mantle. Its lovely to come back to these images and revisit with the memory. Sometimes I miss what has gone, really it may not have gone. Really it…

The garden of your life…

The garden of your life… I love my garden. I spend time in it whenever I can. Pottering around, looking at the plants, watering them, doing a bit of pruning, putting in some garden beds, weeding, re-potting, tidying up and other similar things. I love my time out there. It really brings me pleasure. It brings me peace and solitude. I used to find this same comfort in my niece when she was a baby, all the kids in our family are in their teens now but a few years ago when I went through an extremely low season and was suffering anxiety for what seemed like months and when I would have a bad day I would often pop into my sisters place to visit and just have a cuddle of my niece. It was only this week that I realised that my garden and my niece were able…

I tend towards peace

I tend towards peace…. I always tend towards peace. Tension aggression, shouting, swearing, loud voices, accusations, ranting, always immediately cause me to shut my gates.  Ok so I have told you all before, I grew up with a lot of that… Not the swearing though, but raised voices, accusations, arguments, verbal tirades, they could go on for hours and hours. You may not have been the one on centre stage taking the floor and being pulled to pieces but once it started everyone got a chance.   I shudder to think about those many many many times now, and actually I only remember them as a whole the details are very much a blur and I’m more than happy for them to stay that way. I wonder if I was the person I am now what would I have done back then but that would never have been possible.  …

Once again encouraged…

Once again encouraged…   “When we hear each others stories, then we see the love of God in action and we are once again encouraged that He will continue to work His miracles in our lives” ~Cam Richmond~ Tell your story Share the miracles If you do even more miracles will happen! Have you ever considered that this is one way to ‘pay it forward’? Sharing the right words at just the right time can change someones day… it can change your day! The fires that we want to fuel are fires of hope, peace, faith, love, joy…. One way to fuel these fires is by piling our testimony on the fire, sharing the breakthrough, the miracle, the small mercies and the answers that we found, the ways that God came through for us, the way He cared about all the little details of our lives and that he worked…
