Ever felt like this?

Hold it all together
Everybody needs you strong
But life hits you out of nowhere
And barely leaves you holding on

I suspect at some point in our lives most of us have had times when we’ve felt like this. There is good news though – even when you feel this low, you are never on your own, because God is with you.

It may not feel as if God is with you, but He is. God simply reminds us that

I’m on the throne, stop holding on and just be held

I have always found it quite frustrating how prayer can be a standard part of our daily life. That is until we find ourselves in the midst of a crisis…then prayer seems to be the last thing we want to do.

Sadly, when we are most in need of God, we have a habit of turning away from Him, thinking we can go it on our own.

So here’s a warning for you, when you find yourself in a crisis or at rock bottom, don’t forget about God. In fact make God your priority, because with Him by your side during a crisis, it will be that little bit easier to get through that crisis.

No matter how many family and friends you have around you, there are still times in everyone’s life when you can feel so very alone.

Have you felt like you can’t be strong?

Have you felt like you can’t go on?

Well let me reassure you, you are never alone, God is always with you. Because even if you think he has deserted you, He hasn’t – You are not alone!

You’ll Never Be Alone by Anastacia

The world is changing
And time is spinning fast
It’s so amazing how you came into my life
I know it seems all hope is gone
I know you feel you can’t be strong
And once again the story ends with you and I
And anytime you feel like you just can’t go on
Just hold on to my love
And you’ll never be alone
Hold on
We can make it through the fire
And my love
I’m forever by your side
And you know
If you should ever call my name
I’ll be right there
You’ll never be alone
Hopeless to describe
The way I feel for you
No matter how I try
Words would never do
I looked into your eyes to find
As long as love is alive
There ain’t nothing we can’t make it through
Anytime, or only for a while
Don’t worry
Make a wish
I’ll be there to see you smile
Hold on
We can

When there’s something troubling us about our health, we go and see a doctor. When we have problems is our life, who do we ask for help?

I hope the answer to that question for you, is God.

We may have health issues or concerns in our life, but our doctors will try to help us as best they can. We may have problem sin our life, but God can help us through those times. In fact whether life is good or we are finding it difficult, God is with us.

So whatever life throws your way, make sure you turn to God because he can turn your life around.

They tell us that exercising and walking is good for us, and good for our physical health. I’m not going to dispute that advice, I am going to look at another time when we go for a walk…

We can sometimes feel as if God has deserted us, but how about we consider it from His perspective:

Very true isn’t it – God never deserts any of us, but we do desert Him when we think we can deal with life issues ourself, or that we know better than Him.

When will we learn, we should not go for a walk without God!

John 16:33

I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.

Yes, we may struggle and face great difficulties, but isn’t reassuring that because we believe in God, we have the reassurance that He will always be there for us.

God will be with us at all time, not to necessarily end our struggles and difficulties there are then, but to give us the strength to face our these problems head on, so that we can learn and grow because we have experienced them.

You’ve probably read the title of this blog post and thought I’m mad, haven’t we had more than enough rain!

Well hopefully as you read on I’ll clarify what I mean!

Look around you at the trees, flowers, plants – what do they need to flourish? Sunshine and rain.

Look at yourself, and the person you were in the past – maybe 10, 20, 30 years ago – Are you the same person today as you were then?

Speaking for myself, I can say with certainty that I am definitely a different person today than I was 10, 20 or 30 years ago. It’s not just because I’m obviously older now that I’m different, my outlook on life, on others and my relationships with others is different, and that’s because of the ‘rain‘ I’ve experienced in my life over the years.

The ‘rain’ we experience in our lives can be difficult to cope with at the time, but they are the times which build our character and give us real life experience, and therefore make us the person we are today.

So embrace the rain!

What kind of impression do you leave on other people’s lives?

Do you actually leave any impression on them, or do you wander into people’s lives, and leave again without them even noticing?

Be noticed for who you are as a Christian. If you live by Christian values you will leave a great lifelong impression on other people’s lives.

So go on leave some cheer on someone’s life today…show them some sparkle in what otherwise may be a dark time in their life.


It’s not only physical wounds that can cause great pain – Emotional hurts and wounds can be just as painful, and in some cases, can be longer lasting.

While physical wounds are often visible, the emotional ones are invisible. People walk around everyday with emotional pain that we never see, and therefore are not aware of.

To heal an emotional wound, it sometimes just takes someone to show compassion, An act of kindness towards someone can be the one thing that makes someones day, and help them put to one side, even just for a few minutes, their emotional pain.

So go on, make a kind gesture to someone today, you may just make their day!

When other people do or say things to/about you, how to you feel?

Annoyed or hurt?

I wonder why people do/say things to hurt us – I wonder if they realise how much it hurts.

I simply hope that in everything I do and say, I treat others the way I would want them to treat me.

Matthew 7-12 – Do for others what you want them to do for you. This is the teaching of the laws of Moses in a nutshell.
