What is the correct stance?

                          What is the correct stance? We are faced with all kinds of things happening around us. How would He have us take our stance? How do we fight the battle that we are in and win? I think by retraining and changing our initial human responses as best as we can, not just in how we respond our of our emotions but how we pray too. Prayer is a supernatural response, and yet I can pray according to my own will, with my own slant on how things should go, I could even pray with wrong motives, I could pray out of fear or worry or anxiety. But when I pray according to His will, with His word, declaring His promises there is no doubt that God is at work for His best, for His will to…

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…

The things we are fed.

What we feed on feeds us! I wonder if everything we see, read and hear from different sources is all propaganda of some description? I believe what I believe. You believe what you believe. They may be complete opposite beliefs… yet we both believe them. How can this be so? How do we really KNOW? People die and fight for what they believe.  And it might not even be the truth but they believed it is. How do we figure it out in a world filled with so many me-isms. (I will look after me – no one else will, look after No.1) How do we figure it out in a world filled with so many complete opposite versions of the ‘truth’? I guess it depends on whom you listen to?! Even the most seemingly reliable sources might be not telling what really happened, but it could well be what…

I can say what I like….

Freedom of speech… Is there any such thing anymore? For years and years we have all had our opinions – the way it should be. And we gave permission to others to have their opinion because that’s what you do, and after all we don’t control everyone do we? Only ourselves! OPINION: noun 1. a belief or judgment that rests on grounds insufficient to produce complete certainty. 2.a personal view, attitude, or appraisal. I don’t think people are allowed to have opinions anymore… well not unless they conform to everyone else’s. Just saying. Just because you don’t agree with the other person opinion doesn’t mean they can’t say what they think, I mean its been that way for a LONG time right??? Can people say what they think ????? Or are we living George Orwells NOVEL 1984? I think the young generation think they know everything about everything these days…

Where do you get your power from?

This afternoon my husband and I, and a friend of ours watched an episode of AD: Kingdom and Empire, made by Roma Downey. (It follows on from “Son of God” which I haven’t seen). It was the second episode after the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. The disciples were fearful, they were shocked, they didn’t quite know what to do. He had indeed risen. Now what!? They were hiding, the were being sought after and weren’t sure what to do. Then Jesus appeared to them, he told them to gather together and wait for the promise of the Holy Spirit. Watching this depiction was such a clear revelation to me. These disciples were chosen by God, God knew they could do it… But they were men like any of us today. At first they are afraid, they don’t know what to do, they are shocked. And then Jesus appears and shares with…

Its out of my hands and in His!

   Its out of my hands and in His! God knows us better than we know ourselves. I am learning to defer to His choices in my life, especially when I look back and see how many times trusting him made all the difference and the outcomes were so much better than I could have imagined. Sometime ago I had an opportunity to have a say in a situation that would greatly affect my day to day life. It was very tempting to try and have my say and shift things around so that I might get what I thought that I wanted. I will admit that I did consider it, and I talked it over with my husband but at that same time I became completely aware that perhaps in this instance it might be better to leave this situation in Gods control. If it was meant to be…
