Whose Battle is it?

I have been processing my internal thoughts and battles. I really NEED to stop trying to carry the weight of the world on my shoulders. I claim to not carry this weight but in fact, I do carry it.  I am human. The only way for me to not carry it, is for me to be spending a lot more time in prayer than I currently am, otherwise, how could I ever hope to keep my eyes open and take interest with what is happening all over the world? I would also have to close my eyes and stop looking. I am an observer, a see-er, an acknowledger, but then ‘knowing’ is carrying to a great extent. I see people in pain, in turmoil, hurt, broken, carrying shame. I see death, illness, murder, justification of heinous acts. I see addictions and allergic reactions to life’s events, trauma, turmoil, and no-win…

Being real…

At times I have struggled a bit with my faith…. not exactly with my faith, but staying strong in it. Seeing all that is happening around us, and wondering how on earth we can go forward in this world that is shuffling towards so many cliff edges?   It’s hard seeing these things happen around us, and it can really start to get to us… so scary to watch the vehemence of people against Christians, against our core beliefs, the judgment affronting us.   I felt heavy and burdened. I felt so disappointed and saddened by so much I was seeing, and from watching different people in leadership positions in some churches continue their march towards blending with the world. I felt like, that we as Christians are not fighting in the battle that we need to fight and that we had gotten sidetracked by many things. Seeing non-Christians adopt…

Learn your lesson well…

When I think of all the emotional upheavals that came with being a teenager and those during adolescence, not to mention the things that we were going through as we were growing up, I can tell you now for certain I would never want to go through all of that again. Do you remember that ‘heart pain’ that you felt deep on the inside, the ankst, the insecurity and confusion? Everything felt so vital, but yet it was only a piece in the puzzle. At around that age I think there must be some chemical or hormone that is being released inside you that elevates every emotion to a heightened sense. From the time that these difficult lessons start is the beginning of a major part of the making of who you will be. You begin to sense different things in your life causing you pain, and perhaps they shouldn’t,…

I want to be in that number!

  Are we on the cusp of His return? I think so, but regardless of what I think the signs of his return are practically fulfilled. No one knows the day nor the hour but we know the signs of His coming. We want to be in the number “when the saints go marching in” 🎶 He will come when that last ‘number’ is in. Will we be ready and waiting? How much do we long for our families and friends to be in that number? It’s time to pray, to turn with full hearts to our God, to submit ourselves to him, to seek him and I pray, be found carrying out his will through his plan for each of our lives. Is Jesus coming back soon? I think so! Maybe yes! maybe no? But we should live with this thought fresh in our minds as if he was.…

This day in history

Lord I go into this day knowing you know this day in history. You know what is to happen and what won’t. You know each person’s life story today, where they are at, what their needs are, where their hearts are. Lord you know who will be born and you know who will pass into eternity and where that will be because you know each persons hearts, their choices and their destiny. Lord as I walk into today, I know you walk ahead of me into it. Hold my hand when i need it, whisper you love me, nudge me to speak up, tell me you believe in me, give me the words I need at just the right time, shield me from dangers near and far, point me in the right direction and show me the way to go. Knowing that you are here and now, knowing that you…

Thirst

                            I have been praying for people to come to know Jesus in a personal way. I started thinking about being thirsty and I was praying that people would thirst. Jesus is the living water, the bible says if we drink from him we will thirst no more. I was praying Lord make people thirsty and then I realised that thirst comes from within. Thirst is not something that anyone can ‘make’ you feel. Thirst is something that is natural and comes from within, its a natural self initiated desire, an instinct that God has put within every human being. I had never thought of thirst in this context before. As I was praying about thirst then a word came to my mind and I don’t know if you have even heard of this before but I…
