Jesus at the center of it all
Jesus at the center of it all
From beginning to the end
It will always be, it’s always been You
Jesus, Jesus

Has Jesus always been at the centre of all you do?

If he hasn’t, it’s not too late to change that today. You can make Jesus the centre of all you do from today onwards, you just have to give Him your heart.

From my heart to the Heavens
Jesus be the center
It’s all about You
Yes it’s all about You

When something is broken, it can be heartbreaking.

When we are part of a broken relationship, it can take us to breaking point.

Thankfully, broken things (including relationships) can be mended. If we let God do the mending, these broken relationships can can become blessings – they can become some of the strongest and closest relationships we ever have.

So let God do the mending.

Touch my mind – I’ll remember today; touch my heart – I’ll never forget.

We all have many relationships in our lives, some with people where we challenge one another on a work/employment level; some where we’re challenged physically, through taking part in a sport together; some where we support one another emotionally; some we’re lucky enough to find challenge us in more than one of these areas.

It’s true though, it’s those who reach out and touch our hearts, maybe because they support us or are a confidant, that we never forget.

Think about it, look back over your life, how many people who touched your heart at some point, are still either part of your life, or are still on your mind regularly?

What about those who maybe challenged your brain power, maybe a teacher/lecturer, I suspect you’ll either struggle to remember those in this category or if you can remember them, I doubt they’re people you think about very often.

Following on from yesterday’s blog post, Lessons, here’s another lesson we could each do with remembering sometimes:

It can be hard to accept that some relationships just aren’t meant to be, but we have to be honest with ourselves and with each other, and move on.

Do you ever feel spiritually drained?

Have you ever feel that the “spirit” has just been exhausted in your life?

We all feel this way from time to time; but an energetic Christian knows the cure!

It’s time to recharge your spiritual batteries today, before they run our completely!

You can do this by making reassuring yourself that God is always with you:

Don’t be afraid! Speak out! Don’t be silent! For I am with you, and no one will attack and harm you (Acts 18:9-10 NIV)

I am with you always, even to the end of the age (Matthew 28:20 NLT)

Do you ever feel spiritually drained?

Have you ever feel that the “spirit” has just been exhausted in your life?

We all feel this way from time to time; but an energetic Christian knows the cure!

It’s time to recharge your spiritual batteries today, before they run our completely!

You can do this by making sure your heart is in the right place.

Proverbs 4:23

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. (NIV)

Keep vigilant watch over your heart; that’s where life starts. (The Message)

Look after your heart, because through that God is with you.

When you find you face problems in life, do you wonder, “Why me?”. But have you ever stopped and wondered, “Am I actually the root of my problems?”.

I’m sure even if you have thought that, you will have realised not everything can be your fault! Sometimes our problems can start when our heart is not right. i.e. If we say we’ve given our heart to God, but in reality we’ve just given him a part of ourselves.

The heart of the problem is a problem with the heart. ~ Dr Henry Brandt

When we give our heart, our all, to God, God will strengthen and support us always. So don’t let your heart be the problem, give it to God today.

Is there such a thing as a perfect prayer?

Perfect prayer does not consist in many words, silent remembering and pure intention raises the heart to that supreme Power. ~ Amit Ray

I’m not sure I’d call any prayer a ‘perfect prayer’, however I would say that any prayer that is uttered from the heart, is worthy of being called perfect. God wants us to give our hearts to Him, so if our prayers come from the depth of our heart, they are perfect to Him.

When we’re asked a question, we can often give elaborate answers which really tell the questioner nothing. So for the following questions I’m looking for single word answers only :

  1. What is your favourite book of the bible?
  2. Do you put your heart and soul into everything you do?
  3. Are you passionate about anything?
  4. What are you passionate about?
  5. When was the last time you cried uncontrollably?

Whatever your answers, did you answer honestly or did you give the answers you think you should be giving?

If you didn’t answer honestly, can I suggest you try again, but this time be honest with yourself, because if you are, you might get an insight into the ares of your life you need to change.

  1. Who do you wish you were with, right now?
  2. If you could meet anyone living or dead, who would you want to meet?
  3. Has your heart ever been broken?
  4. Have you ever felt you couldn’t go on?
  5. Have you read the bible today?

Whatever your answers, did you answer honestly or did you give the answers you think you should be giving?
