Lost

I dreamt the other night that I travelled to another city with a family member to visit some people whose house we’d never been to before, and surprise surprise, we got lost…I’m not sure if there was no SatNav in the car or whether we were in someone else’s car.

To be fair, we did seem to find the house we were looking for but then had to go to some shops, and it was once we’d been at the shops we got lost.

This got me thinking about how easy it can be to get lost in our journey through life, particularly if we don’t follow a map or directions.

Stay on course with your life, by following God’s path.

Guarantee

When we buy goods/services they often come with a guarantee which promises that if the purchase fails or breaks within that guarantee period, it will be fixed or replaced free of charge. We now also seems to be getting more and more goods/services which offer extended guarantees on them so that even once the manufacturer’s guarantee has expired, for a monthly/annual cost, the supplier promises to fix/replace the goods, although this time there’s often an excess charge.

So a manufacturer’s guarantee is usually limited to a reasonable small amount of time, and an extended warranty while it does provide a guarantee of fixing or replacing faults, there is a charge associated with it.

Isn’t it great though that our very own manufacturer, God, guarantees to look after us not just for a few years, but forever, and not for a price, because Jesus paid the extended warranty fee for us when he died at Calvary.

Who else would give you a lifetime guarantee for no charge, except God?

Just a story? #2

Sometimes it can be difficult to distinguish between fiction and reality, especially now that there are so many reality shows on TV these days.

So this Easter, I want to ask you, what is Easter to you? Is it just a story or do you believe that Christ died on a cross at Calvary on that first Easter morning?

Easter is real for me. Calvary is real to real. Jesus is real to me.

 

Are you looking for simple ways to encourage your heart and nourish your soul?

In the last while I’ve given you some ideas which will hopefully inspire you to implement them in your own life, and over the coming weeks I’ll share some others with you.

So here’s today’s suggestion:

Slow down!

Life these days goes by at 100 miles an hour, with everyone having loads of things to do, in a limited timescale. It’s therefore no wonder that we get stressed and tired just trying to keep up with everything that’s expected of us. That is why today, my suggestion to help you enjoy your day more and lift your spirits, is simply to take a deep breath, think about the here and now, and consider everything and everyone around you.

Each person, each location, each event and every circumstance going on in your life and in the lives of those around you, is important to them. So take time to think about, and consider, those around you instead of just rush past them.

Slowing down may lose you a few seconds in a day, but it will help you to appreciate those around you and what they may be going through.

Some people like taking charge and organising everything and everyone. Some prefer to be have their days planned out for them, so they just follow the plan. Which kind of person are you?

Whether you are a planner or whether you prefer to have your days planned for you, we all must follow the plans God as set out for us, because he planned our lives out before we were born, and is now wanting to direct and lead us through the tasks in His plan.

In the last few days I’ve been talking about giving thanks to God, and saying, “Thank you” to everyone who does something for you. Saying “Thank you” isn’t just something that’s just randomly become something we should do, as in the bible there are examples of many saying thank you t each other, and to God.

The example I want t give you today though, is if Jesus saying thank you to God, his Father, for hearing and answering his prayer:

John 11:40-42 (NIV)

Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”

So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.”

Jesus knew it was important to thank God for all he does, so follows Jesus’ example each day, and remember to say, “thank you” to God for hearing and answering our prayers.

When life gets tough, having hope can be the one thing that keeps you going. So that’s why it’s great to know that God gives me everything, and He gives me hope eternal.

Do you have hope for a bright future?

Everything by Delirious

It’s a beautiful day and the world is bright
‘Cos you took me away from the longest night
What can I do but give all I have to you

It’s a beautiful day and the page has turned
Deep in my soul now your fire burns
What can I do, I’ll give it all up for you

You give me everything
Give me hope within
You’re the song I sing
You give me everything
Give me hope to win
You’re the song I sing

It’s a beautiful day and we’re running proud
And we’ll run to the line
Hear the witness cloud
I know it’s true
We’re gonna fly
We’re gonna dance
On that glorious day with you

You are the light that shines

History Maker by Delirious:

God over everything

Problems come in all shapes and sizes, some are short-lived and easily managed, while others are more chronic and difficult to handle.

In all situations, God is there for you.

During all of life’s problems, God is there for you.

During everyday life, God is there for you.

 

 

No matter the severity of the problem, or how difficult  or sensitive it may be to handle, God will help you.

Seek God. Ask God to help you. Find Him equal to the task.
