Just Smile!

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!

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!

The Hourglass

Monday Morning Coffee©️

Happy Monday people!
We lost an old school mate a week ago. One thing I regret is not being able to meet up with her as planned on her last trip to London.

The death of a close friend helps us put things into perspective; suddenly our huge personal issues seem negligible in the light of what has happened.

We are confronted by our own mortality and the brevity of life. Sadly this phase does not last long, we forget quickly and return to living life like tomorrow will always be there!

Lord teach me to number my days that I may apply my heart to wisdom. Ps 90:12

We should seek every opportunity to do good, spend time with family and go for our health checks.

Most importantly we must know where we are spending eternity!

Think of the sand in the hourglass….Life is short!

Business as Usual?

Monday Morning Coffee ©️

Happy Easter Monday people!
Most of us will have a lie-in this morning so grab your coffee and let’s reflect.

What happened after the resurrection? Some of the disciples returned to their fishing business; back to the familiar.

Are we about to do the same and go back to our old ways? Won’t it be a sad state of affairs if we also returned to the status quo?

We must resolve to live each day conscious that we carry the power of the resurrection and the life, expecting to see dead things come alive and buried virtues unearthed for His glory!

The blood that was shed was precious so it can’t be business as usual.

Jesus is risen! He lives in you everyday! ….Show it!

Guilty!

Happy Monday People!
As we start the Holy Week, can we all do some deep soul searching by taking a quick look at Judas and Peter; two characters who played significant roles in the Easter story?

Judas was the accountant and budget holder of the ministry. Peter was one of the closest disciples of Jesus, nicknamed “the rock” and one of the cornerstones of the early church.

Both men abused their privileged positions. Now before we start pointing fingers at them, take a good look in the mirror, we are just as guilty as Judas and Peter!

Yes, we the so-called believers, blood-bought, spirit-filled, tongue-speaking, ordained and collar-wearing are just as bad!

In our attitude and conduct we nail Jesus to the cross again daily, twisting the nails in for good measure!

Today, like the prodigal son, let’s retrace our steps to our ever-loving Father.

…..It’s time to go back home!
