When you feel like those around you don’t want you around, and you feel rejected by the world. Always remind yourself you are not really alone, because God loves you!

God loves you and can help feel part of this world, His world, again.

Remember God loves you!

Just ask the animals, and they will teach you. Ask the birds of the sky, and they will tell you. Speak to the earth, and it will instruct you. Let the fish in the sea speak to you. For they all know that my disaster has come from the hand of the LordFor the life of every living thing is in his hand, and the breath of every human being. ~ Job 12:7-10 (NLT)

God created all the beautiful things around us.

Man created all the horror around us.

I pray today that we will each do our best to remind man of God’s love for them, so that our fellow men and women will look after, not just the world around them but, one another.

Around us

In the last few weeks we’ve enjoyed some really beautiful weather in the UK. During that time I’ve found myself being very aware of the world around, the beautiful flowers, trees, rivers, fields etc. I know those things are there everyday, but somehow I for one, have taken then for granted. It’s only now with all this lovely weather that I have suddenly noticed it all again.

How about you, do you notice the world around you each day?

Whether you notice the world around you each day or not, do you thank God for the world he created for us to live in? If I’m honest, I don’t – I take the beautiful things God has provided in this world for me to enjoy, for granted so often.

So please join me today in promising to thank God each day for providing so many beautiful things around us.

At work we have managers or team leaders who are there to guide, direct and teach us.

How about in your life as a whole? Do you know who is leading you?

God is my Lord, and my leader. I hope He is your leader too.

All my life…that’s a lot of minutes and hours!

I wonder, have I made the most of every single minute and hour that I’ve already had on this earth? My honest answer is ‘No’, and I suspect many would also say they haven’t made the most of their time here so far.

Today I want to make a new promise – I want to acknowledge that God walks by my side, though every day. And so I want to promise that I will do all I can to live my life as God wants me to, making the most of every minute and every hour that I have available to me.

Do you celebrate your relationships?

Do you celebrate your relationships with God?

So if God really is your all, remember to celebrate God’s love, and thank God for loving you unconditionally.

Did you go to church this morning?

Did you go out of habit or because you actually wanted to be there, because you wanted to praise and worship God?

You may have had a great time at church this morning, been blessed and maybe challenged on how you life your life. But now that you have left the church, are you still living your life to the same values/standards?

Those who don’t go to church or don’t believe in God, only see God by how we live our lives. So while it’s great that you go to church, let your life outside of church reflect all you learn and hear while you’re at church.

Hebrews 10:32-35 (NIV)
Remember those earlier days after you had received the light, when you endured in a great conflict full of suffering. Sometimes you were publicly exposed to insult and persecution; at other times you stood side by side with those who were so treated. You suffered along with those in prison and joyfully accepted the confiscation of your property, because you knew that you yourselves had better and lasting possessions. So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.

We may not face daily persecution because of our Christian beliefs, however many do. Yes, like many of you I’ll have been called names, shouted but nothing like the level of persecution some in other countries have to endure because they believe in God.

Can you imagine still having the strength and courage to openly share your faith, even when others persecute you because of it. I’m not sure my faith would be strong is enough in that situation, is yours?

How are you at remembering people’s names?

How are you at remembering dates and times you attend events or functions?

How are you at remembering things in general, such as jokes or quotes?

I’m not very good at remembering any of things if I’m honest. Those of you who know me, will know that if I don’t write something down, the chances of me doing it are slim! Those of you who know me will also know that names aren’t my strong point either.

I’m always find it amazing when others are able to quote bible verse after bible verse without needing to look anything up. Maybe it’s just because I struggle to remember anything without writing it down or looking it up!

At the end of the day though, does it really matter whether we can quote word for word from the bible? The most important thing is surely that we live as God wants us to live!

 

Matthew 11:28 (The Passion Translation)

“Are you weary, carrying a heavy burden? Then come to me. I will refresh your life, for I am your oasis.”

It can seem as if there’s no point carrying on when life gets difficult, but if we give all our worries and troubles to God and leave them there, we can be sure God will give us the strength to carry on.

So give God all your problems, and let Him give you all you need to make it through your storm.
