Can we really all do something for God? Of course we can!

No two of us are the same. No two of us have the same talents or skills. No two of us have the same knowledge or experience. But we all have life experience and God given talents.

That’s why God needs each of us. He needs people with all sorts of skills, and therefore he needs each of us. We just need to be willing to do what God wants us to do!

Are you ready and willing to do what God wants you to do?

Today we may all be spending time with our family and friends, exchanging gifts and eating far too much. But let’s remember why we are celebrating today, Christmas Day

If it wasn’t for Jesus’ birth over 2000 years ago, we wouldn’t be celebrating Christmas, to please take some time today to remember that today is simply because of Jesus.

How many times have you found yourself in this scenario?

Once again today, I want to remind you how much we need to be like children in our daily life – quickly forgetting conflicts so we can just forgive and move on. Don’t be stubborn, be forgiving and don’t stay sitting back to back.

Word Association #53

I’ve done a few Word Associations with you over the last while, and today it’s time for another one. So as usual I’m going to throw some words at you, and I want you to note down the first word that comes into your mind when you read each word.

So here goes…

  1. Box
  2. Lunch
  3. String
  4. Picture
  5. Jewellery
  6. Envelope
  7. Caption
  8. Truth
  9. Watch
  10. Chair

wordsSo how did you get on with those words? Did you find it easy? Did your answers surprise you or were they just as you expected?

Well here’s my responses to my questions:

  1. Packing
  2. Deal
  3. Cheese
  4. Frame
  5. Gift
  6. CD
  7. Photo
  8. Righteousness
  9. Stare
  10. Relax

I still believe that when we respond with the first words that come into our minds, our answers tell us a lot about our emotional state, and what’s important to us at that particular point in time.

Bearing all this in mind, review your answers, does my theory hold true?

By the way, if you want me to explain any of my answers, just ask!

Is there any better gift from God today, than the gift of life today!

Let’s repay God’s gift of today, by making the most of the day.

Gift from God

From a young age we get excited when we receive gifts or presents from other. Maybe that childlike excitement dies down as we get older, but our pleasure and thankfulness doesn’t subside.

In our life we can come to own different things or spend money on other items – home, car, holiday, clothes etc. Have you ever considered that all the things you own are actually gifts from God?

God gave us the gift of life, and planned every detail of our life before we were even born. Therefore isn’t it logical to then realise all we have is from God?

A gift

Last year seemed to be a year that many people found very difficult. This has been backed up as I came across a lot of people battling anxiety, depression, and stress, as well as other challenging situations.

Despite how difficult last year may have been, we have made it here to 2017. You may not think it just now, but believe me, it really is a gift that you are here today!

giftNo matter whether you sailed through 2016 or each day was a huge challenge, I can guarantee that you have grown and learned from those experiences – Grown in a way that will help you face whatever lies ahead for you in 2017.

Let’s make 2017 a year to remember for lots of positive reasons, because you have earned it by surviving 2016!


Just for you

It’s nice when you get a gift or present from someone isn’t it?

It’s even better when you know the person giving you the gift has chosen it especially for you, and that’s exactly what God does for you every day…



Gift from God

Following on from Sunday’s blog post Gift From Him, I want to talk about gifts again in today’s post. So today I want to start of by simply saying to you that I am a “Gift from God”.

“Gift from God” is actually the meaning of my name, Dorothy? I’m sure as we’re all rushing around in our busy lives that we can sometimes forget that we are gifts from God. However for me I get constant reminder of that as my name, Dorothy, actually means “Gift from God”!

We should not need to be reminded that we are a gift from God, as simply by living our lives as God wants us to live, should be a constant reminder that we are His gifts. Live for God, by always remembering we are His gifts.

Who doesn’t like receiving a gift! I wonder why that is…maybe it’s because we ourselves are actually gifts

What you are is God’s gift to you, what you become is your gift to God ~ Hans Urs von Balthasar

God gave us the gift of us, so as a thank you to Him, we should ensure we do all we can repay Him by living our lives as He wants us to.
