The time I cherish the most is in the morning in bed, with a cup of tea and my bible.
I find the more time I spend with the Lord the closer and more intimate our relationship becomes. He not only knows me but I dive into the very heart of God and my desires begin to line up with His will.
I’d like to encourage you to spend time with Him daily, as this will change your relationship immensely. You will not only see change in the way you live but your soul will be forever transformed.
Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him. Psalm 65:5
Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always. 1 Chronicles 16:11
You are Powerful beyond measure. His Word says that the power of life and death is on the tongue. So as you go into your week remember to speak life and not death into your life and into the lives of those around you.
Ephesians 4:29 – Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
You are Powerful! x
Wow – what a fantastic end to the long weekend!! Great food, friends and a market full of colour and creativity.
Such culture, such history at the African Market in Old Spitalfield’s!! Checking out some fantastic jewellery pieces:
And some wonderful pieces of traditional artwork:
Wouldn’t be African without some chin chin!!
And who could forget these amazing hand crafted children’s dolls…beautiful colours and traditional African prints.
Looking around at the market reminds us of how God has put a bit of His creativity into each of us. He is the Master creator and architect who’s made things that are literally out of this world. Take, for example, the design and prints on a leaf – you can see the hand print of God down to the minute details of the veins! As you go into this week, we would like to challenge you to take a look at the creation around you and ponder.
Romans 1:20: ‘For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.’
Another amazing day at Church coupled with summer vibes at the Charlotte Street Hotel!!
Psalm 118:24 – ‘This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.’
Psalm 9:1-2 – ‘I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will recount all of your wonderful deeds. I will be glad and exult in you; I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.’
God is so good – isn’t it amazing how much joy being in His presence brings!! He is a good good Father and He loves you so much.
Afternoon tea and a little healthy snack…
Followed by the most amazing chocolate gateaux
And capped off with a textbook British Summer experience!
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!
