Strong Foundations

We’re finally here…the foundations have been built, strong and healthy – now it’s time to let this take root and bear fruit in His name. These are the thoughts we all should have when embarking on a new venture, on that next project or when starting that new relationship.

Lets face it lads, almost all of us at one time or another has counted ourselves as some sort of ‘DIY guru’ with power drill in hand and hammer at the ready…soon after accepting this project you realise you don’t have a clue but your pride kicks in and bam its the catch 22 of blundering on or admitting you need ‘the man’ to help you out!! You all know what I’m talking about – ladies we all know you can relate. You didn’t have that foundation of knowledge to complete the task, you allowed pride to prevent your learning!

The same applies when it comes to your faith and growing with our Father – you need that strong, healthy foundation based on prayer and relational growth with the Holy Spirit who lives in each and everyone of us. I really want to encourage you to pray everyday, to open your bible and meditate on His Word. From that foundation there is nothing you cannot achieve, in your work, in your relationships, in your life.

Luke 6:48 says this: He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built.

REMEMBER, You are a Man of God, You are unique, You speak with the greatest authority in the universe with access to the throne room of Heaven. With Jesus as your foundation and His Word in your hand there is nothing you cannot do. Build your foundation on the rock that is Jesus.

P.s. I’d love to hear from you if you have any thoughts or comments!

Without Rival

Wow…this book…it changed my perspective, it changed my life!! Not sure if it’s obvious yet but this is book has impact, influence, encouragement and is a must read, if you haven’t already. You are Without Rival.

Did you know you know God does not love us equally?

For God to love us equally would mean that His love is measured, but as Lisa rightly says it’s not, His love for you is INFINITE!!! I mean how awesome is that girls – the creator of the heavens and the earth loves you uniquely and infinitely!!

In Without Rival Lisa emphasises that you are a one of a kind masterpiece that can never be replaced, there is no one in the world like you. You are fearfully and wonderfully made and not only were you made to be set apart, you were Chosen.

Have you ever battled with self-esteem, have you ever striven to be accepted by the ‘clique’? A lot of the time we try and hide it (you know what I mean girls) but growing up I continually sought the ‘acceptance’ of what I have since come to know of as ‘the world’. No matter how much people tried to help I did not believe it and if I did not believe it then…how could it be true? This impacted my relationship with my Father (God) and how I thought He saw me…how wrong I was.

God has truly used Lisa to place such beautiful expressions in this book, expressions that opened my eyes and heart to something fresh, a new revelation about myself.  As Lisa beautifully puts it

“God uniquely created your DNA and knit your frame in secret so he could surprise the world. He authored how your heart expresses itself; he was the architect of your smile and the melody of your voice; he made all of your features with the fondest thoughts of only you in mind. He celebrated along with your parents your first smile and watched with affection your first steps. Because of this tender, intentional care, there are multiple facets of your life that express and reflect his love uniquely. He wove all these exceptional aspects and specific talents into the package of you, his daughter. He knew each attribute would be expressed best through your feminine form”.

Talk about revelation! I would highly encourage women of all ages, even men, to read this book. Lisa presents the Father’s heart in the most beautiful way and I believe you will be forever changed as you delve into its pages.
