Message of the Month

What would my ‘Message of the month’ be to my readers?  I think the words of Jesus in John 10:10:  The thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy.  Jesus came that we might have life, and have it to the full.  Jesus didn’t have to go to the cross to die for our freedom.

 

So, to Zoe who’s always inspired me, and to Helene who (without knowing it) has taught me lately to make the most of my life and live it as fully as I can, thank you.

 

We have a glorious future, prepared and planned out for us in heaven.  If you’re still breathing, it’s because God loves you enough to have kept you alive to enjoy it, starting today.

The Bag of Coins

Are you someone who struggles to pray for yourself but will pray for others? Say, you have a bag of coins. All the people around you need money, so you give them out until they’ve all gone. You want to keep giving out to others, but that bag has to be filled up again.

I think it’s important to pray for ourselves – that we would be filled with God’s Holy Spirit, so He can then flow out of us to help other people (a jug of water won’t overflow unless it’s full). I can’t fill your bag of coins; what I can do is point you in the direction of that heavenly bank!
