Happy Monday people!
What is your legacy for the next generation?

Last Saturday, DWJ-our women’s fellowship successfully held its inaugural Young Adults Conference. This was a dream come true for us!

As I sat at the back of the hall I was reminded that God always plans with the next generation in mind and our greatest legacy is that our children know Him.

‘And there arose a generation that did not know the Lord or the things he had done in Israel’ (Judges 2:10)

Today I fear we are repeating this same cycle in history. We want to build the biggest churches and be global preachers but how about just being a good parent? How about family bible study?

The Lord’s heart bleeds for the next generation! ….. Ours should too!

Blue Skies Ahead

Happy Monday people!
Do you feel your world is caving in? Are you trying to claw your way out of a hole but sinking deeper still? You are not alone.

The Syrian army once laid a siege around Samaria. The situation was so dire that camel dung was sold as food and mothers were forced to eat their children!
(2 Kings 6:24 -7:19)

One night God caused the Syrians to hear a noise, they panicked and ran for their lives leaving behind their belongings which were plundered by the Israelites.

Overnight the Israelites transitioned from abject lack to abundance!

Breathe!….Change is coming for you too!

The Small Stuff!

Happy Monday people!

Isn’t it strange that the key to our miracle is often in the small stuff, the things we take for granted; things hidden in plain sight?

A certain widow’s sons were about to be sold to pay off a debt their father a prophet owed. How a prophet died without making financial provision for his family is a story for another day!

This poor widow had a combination of small stuff; a small jar of oil, good neighbours and some empty containers. A combination that turned her into a wealthy oil merchant!

Today, look at the small stuff around you too, strengthen your relationships, open your heart, rebuild those broken bridges; you will need them one day.

The Lord always uses the small stuff to meet huge needs!

Your Life’s Story

Monday Morning Coffee©️

Happy Monday people!
My son Toby and I decided to watch a movie at the weekend. While he likes science fiction, I prefer movies with a semblance of reality so reaching a compromise was a challenge.

If the story of your life was written would it be a thriller, drama or science fiction? Mine will most certainly be drama!

Ironically this book called ‘Life’ has no table of contents page so we never know what’s round the corner. We live in hope not knowing if we are starting a new chapter or near the end of the book!

‘’….The days allotted to me had all been recorded in your book, before they ever began.”
Ps 139:16

Our life’s script has already been written, so if you opened your eyes this morning your story hasn’t ended; you just turned a new page!

Show some gratitude! …..Make today count!….It’s a gift!

Just Smile!

Monday Morning Coffee©️

Happy Monday people!
This post is dedicated to the lovely women out there who keep going inspite of the challenges life has dealt them.

Tugged and pulled from all sides, we reel to and fro like ships in chirpy waters yet we still manage to dress up and show up in style!

Are you a Hannah who gave up a son she had barely weaned or a victim of a man’s error like Hagar or a salty Mrs Lot blamed for looking back?

Our bible sisters had similar struggles; we are not alone!

‘Keep your voice from weeping and your eyes from tears, for your labour will be rewarded says the Lord…..’Jer 31:16

Smile woman!…….This too will end in praise!

Don’t Waste Your Pain!

Happy Monday people!
Has a recent health scare forced you to make drastic dietary changes, and develop a taste for those bitter veggies?

How has a difficult situation drawn you closer to God on your knees?

Do you remember the parable of the tares? A farmers natural inclination will be to pull out the tares but Jesus advised that the wheat and tares are left to grow together!

Life is a mixed grill of experiences. Some unpleasant experiences are self-inflicted but others are permitted by God to teach us humility and reliance on Him.

All things work together for good to those that love God …..Rom 8:28

God works through the good, the bad and the ugly.

Your pain has a purpose. If it led you to the cross then nothing is wasted!

Do Not Disturb!

Monday Morning Coffee©️

Happy Monday people!
If Jesus were visiting today what will He find in your home?

Perhaps cobwebs dirty dishes, a month’s worth of dirty laundry or a garden that the foxes have made their home.

What will Jesus find in your heart? Deep seated unforgiveness, envy or secrets you have vowed to take to the grave?

If Jesus checks your browsing history what will He find? Now God have mercy!

Won’t it be just fine if Jesus sat in a corner without poking His nose in our business?

The boat is comfortable so why do we need to walk on water? So we put up the “Do Not Disturb” sign.

Jesus comes to do a clearout to make room for the changes He desires in us.

Behold, I stand at the door, and knock….Rev 3:20

Nothing changes until we change! …. Jesus is still knocking!
