Not only can we be blessings to others, but we can receive blessing from others too. However the greatest giver of blessing will always be God, simply because he loves us more than anyone else ever will.

So let your love also be a blessing to others.

Maybe you’re wondering what you need to do to ‘be a blessing’. It’s actually quite easy, as all you need to do is give your heart and your all to God, and He will then put you in the situations and places where you are needed, where He needs you – He will then help you and guide you to say and do what is needed to bless those who need you.

You’ve probably heard it said many times before that God will always give you what you need to do what He need you to do, and this is true when you are doing His work.

So get out there and bless others, but just as importantly, be blessed too!

Something new

There’s no point moving on to a place or location continuing to do the same things if what we’re doing isn’t effective or it’s not what we should be doing!

God alone can direct us to do what we should be doing, and where we should be doing it. That’s why we need to let Him change us into the person He needs us to be, so He can then send us to where he needs us.

What can I say to cheer a world of sorrow?
How bring back hope where men have sorely failed?
Just where I am I’ll speak the word of comfort,
Tell how for me Christ’s sacrifice availed.

CHORUS
Just where he needs me, my Lord has placed me,
Just where he needs me, there would I be!
And since he found me, by love he’s bound me
To serve him joyfully.

What can I do to ease life’s heavy burdens?
What can I do to help mankind in need?
Just where I am I’ll share my neighbour’s hardship,
Lighten his load, and prove a friend indeed.

What can I do to justify my living?
What can I be to worthwhile?
I’ll be a voice to call men to the Saviour,
Just where I am, and win my Father’s smile.

We are all individuals. We are all unique. We all have different experiences. We all experience emotions when we go through life, however the emotions we feel in each circumstance are individual to us. Therefore just because you know how you feel when you experience a particular situation, doesn’t mean that is how others feel.

Remember we are unique, no-one else know how we truly feel, so don’t ever think you know exactly how someone else feels, unless they tell you!

And how do we get the strength to overcome the things we thought we couldn’t do? We pray!

When we ask God to help us to overcome a difficult situation we can be assured that He will help us. It may be that how we get through the situation isn’t the way we expected, or even wanted, but it will be the way God knows is best for us.

God will give us the strength we need in every situation we find ourselves, so trust Him to give you the strength you need to overcome every situation.

We can sometimes wonder why God doesn’t always give us what we ask for. But we just need to remind ourselves that in every situation and circumstance, God knows best. He knows exactly what we need and when we need it and will provide it in His time.

Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NLT)

Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end.

So when you question God’s decisions, remind yourself of the words in this picture, because God knows us better than we know ourselves, so He does know what is best for us, so trust Him.

Sometimes we just need to a reminder of how awesome you are, so here’s your reminder:

So please take those words to heart, and be awesome!

No this blog post has nothing to do with Brexit – which I hope you find reassuring.

Instead it’s about how to improve yourself – As the following words remind us, if we keep on doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a different outcome, nothing will change – In other words the outcome will be consistent.

However, if after trying something and finding it doesn’t work, you do something differently the next time, it may work out as you want, but it might now – but even then, you stop and have a rethink before having another go, changing what you’re doing again. and so you carry on like this until you succeed – That is called being persistent, and that is how you can improve yourself, by being persistent.

Have you ever stopped for a minute and wondered, what would I be grateful for next week, next month or next year?

Maybe you haven’t ever wondered that but, I bet you are now!

So today I urge you to not only have a think about what you could do today that will benefit you in the future, but also do it!

Good luck!

I’m do not profess to be a marriage expert, but I’m sure like many, I have heard many descriptions of what marriage means, and what makes a marriage work. This photo is probably one of the best I’ve seen for some time, so it shouldn’t surprise you that the quote is from the bible.
