More than ever this world needs to know God.

Men and women, boys and girls, never knowing unconditional love, never feeling their future is secure.

Messages of turmoil, disasters, hatred fill our news and social media streams.

More than ever this world needs to know God.

Millions have turned from God thinking He doesn’t exist or doesn’t care for them.

Millions are wrong, God is always there for them, they just need to have faith to believe in God.

My prayer is that those of us who believe in God, do all we can to show those we come into contact with, that we are different, and live our lives differently, because we believe in God.

May we then be examples of Christ’s love to others, showing love and compassion to everyone.

Life and eternity

Are you too busy trying to live each day, that you’re not preparing for your future?

Life is only too short if we haven’t prepared ourselves for eternity. I want to send eternity with God, therefore I have given my life to God. I pray that each day I live here on tis earth, that I will do my best, with God’s help, to lead the life He wants me to live.

Are you preparing for your eternal life with God, or are you too busy living your life here on earth? Enjoy life, but don’t leave it too late to sort our your eternity

True colours

If we show our true Christians colours, not only will Christ see them, but so will others. When others look at us or talk to us, if we live our lives as a true Christian, they will see something different in us – Hopefully that difference will be they see Christ!

I pray that I start each day by asking God to help me live my life as a true Christian. By doing that, I hope that others will see Christ through me, and see something that makes them want to seek Christ for themselves.

Yesterday in Celebrate! I encouraged you to celebrate your own life, because you alone know the challenges and difficulties you’ve had to go through to get to where you are now.

Today I want to suggest that having celebrated our own lives yesterday, we celebrate God today, as he was the one who gave us life. Not only did he give us live, he lives each moment of it with us. He guides and directs us, He forgives us and comforts us, and provides everything we need.

Thank you God for giving us life.

Thank you for sacrificing your only son.

Thank you for loving us unconditionally.

Thank you for forgiving us.

Thank you for being the one we can always rely on to help and guide us in every situation.

Help us to be who you made us to be.

Help us to praise you and to celebrate your love for us so that others will always see you in us.

Thank you God for everything.

In many sports it’s clear that a team or player deliberately target what they feel are their opponent’s vulnerabilities or weaknesses. It’s clear why they do that, as in sport it all about the win isn’t it?

Vulnerabilities don’t just exist when a sport is being played, they exist in our every aspect of our lives. None of us are perfect, we all have weakness, and that is why in our lives we often find ourselves being targeted by the devil. The devil sees when we are weak and puts doubts and obstacles in our way so that we question God’s plans for us. He’s great at targeting our weaknesses, but we can overcome the devil’s attack on us by putting our faith firmly in God, and letting Him take away all our burdens and strengthen our weaknesses. God will help us become better and stronger people by helping us learn from our weaknesses and become stronger in our faith.

Questions and uncertainty

It can sometimes feel like we’re inundated with questions and uncertainty day after day. So in these circumstances where do you turn? Who do you turn to?

If your questions are about a specific subject or topic, I’m sure there are experts around who can assist. For example if you have a problem with your laptop or mobile phone, there are many shops and companies around who have technical experts who can help solve your technology issue.

If you questions are about life’s problems, maybe you turns to your parents or other family or friends.

If you feel your future is uncertain and you’re struggling to know how to see a positive outcome, who better to turn to than God. In fact, whether you have questions about life in general, problems with life, or feel life is getting on top of you, God is the the one to turn to. He alone can give you direction and guidance which always has your best interests at heart.

There’s no need to stress about your future, instead take all your questions or concerns to God, and He will answer your questions and guide you into the best future for you.

Change your heart

We’re only human, imperfect and in need of help and direction from the only One who is able to help each one of us in every situation.

Because we’re only human, we do make mistakes. That’s why in every difficult situation we find ourselves, it’s not always somebody else who needs to change, we are sometimes the ones who need to admit we’ve got it wrong, and need to change ourselves.

I pray that God will help and guide me through life. I pray that when I get things wrong, I will willing admit my mistakes, seek His forgiveness, and listen and follow God’s guidance to us.

So let God help change you, because only then can be be the people God needs/wants us to be.

Yesterday in God Knows I spoke about how, when life gets tough, we often find ourselves thinking we know what’s best for us, rather than trusting God. It can be tough to understand what is happening when life is tough, and it can be even harder to fully trust God to get us through those days.

It seems strange saying that it can be harder to trust God when that’s what I know I should be doing in every situation. However when you’re in the middle of a tough situation, you just want it to finish there and then, with a good outcome. Sadly not every tough situation can be resolved quickly, nor can every one come to a happy conclusion, and that’s what makes it so difficult to continue to have faith that God does know what’s best for us.

So when tough times come, remember it’s up to you whether you place your trust in God and drop your faith anchor, or whether you let fear take hold by letting it drop anchor. I pray that whatever I may face I will always put my faith in God, and not let fear take hold of my life, because God will never stop caring for me.

Best for us

When God answers our prayers in a way we don’t understand or don’t even like, we may wish he’d change his answer.

When we seek guidance from God, but don’t like the answers we find in His word, we look for different answers.

Why don’t we trust God, and trust His word?

God always knows what’s best for us. That means his guidance to us not seem right to us sometimes. However that’s when must put our faith in God even more, because His way is always best, even when at the time it may not seem the best to us.

I know I’ve mentioned it before, but I feel it important to mention again, that it is perfectly normal for us when we’re going through difficult times, to feel abandoned by God.

Even in those times of doubt, our faith will keep us strong, and keep us believing in God. Why? Because of this..

God will always look after us, even when we think He’s forgotten us. He will take care of us, and because of that, those who love us will pray for us.
