What a Splash!

Monday Morning Coffee©️

Happy Monday good people!

The women’s group at church held its conference at the weekend themed ‘Living Water’.

We heard amazing testimonies of how women in difficult and life-threatening situations impacted lives for Jesus!

‘Whoever believes in me, rivers of living water will flow from within them.’ John 7:38

This week as always we will meet with broken, confused and thirsty people in need of a saviour; our neighbours, work colleagues, teachers at our children’s school or the passenger next to us on the train.

How do we pour the living water we carry on everyone around us ?

By the way, a hug, a kind word, a smile, a little encouragement or a small gift will do more than bashing them on the head with our big bibles!

Be a problem- solver! ….Make a big splash!

Ditch the Distractions!

Monday Morning Coffee©️

Happy Monday people!

This morning I was reading about Isaac’s well-building escapades.

Isaac encountered two obstacles on his way to the land of promise: ‘contention’ and ‘enmity’.

Whenever you are about to do anything great, watch out for these two obstacles; they won’t be too far away!

Isaac dug another well, and they did not quarrel over it; so he named it Rehoboth, he said, ‘At last the Lord has made room for us.’ Gen 26:22

God often allows a season of frustration so we don’t build our house on a wrong foundation….or rely on the wrong people!

Ditch the distractions! Focus!….Dig a fresh well!

Good Morning.

Just an Ordinary Day

Monday Morning Coffee

Happy Monday people!

This is the day we grudgingly climb out of bed to do it all over again, desperately hoping this week will be the one with the breakthrough!

The day of your breakthrough will be just an ordinary day. It will meet you doing the usual mundane tasks. The Lord is watching out for your consistency and diligence.

Zachariah though childless and old was carrying out his daily temple duties when the angel arrived with his good news. On the day he was crowned king, David was in the backside of the desert tending sheep as usual. It was also just an ordinary day when Ruth stepped onto the field of Boaz; changing her destiny forever.

Today is another ordinary day but rise with a spring in your step, grab your hot coffee and be expectant!

….It could just be today!

Happy October.

The Drop Off

Monday Morning Coffee©️

Happy Monday people!

This post is dedicated to all the parents who had to do the university drop off at the weekend.

The drop off at nursery school was difficult enough , but nothing prepares you for the emotions involved when you drop your child off at university for the first time. (This time there were teary-eyed parents and very happy children!)

Two mothers Jochebed and Hannah once did an extremely emotional drop off too; one out of necessity and the other out of choice.

Letting go is never easy. It’s now our own turn to trust God.

Don’t panic! ….This too will end in praise!

Too Much Noise!!

Monday Morning Coffee©️

Happy Monday people!

We live in a noisy world, bombarded by the constant distraction from social media. Now add a busy social life into the mix and you have total chaos!….Like wearing multiple headphones!

How do we hear the Lord’s voice amidst this ‘noise of the flesh’?

When the Lord called Samuel he ran to Eli first because he mistook the divine call for the call of the flesh. (1 Samuel: 3) This is what most of us are doing now.

Have you received the the Lord’s call and didn’t hear it or worse still decided to ignore it?

The Lord will not compete with the noise around you. The call that will change your life may come in a ‘still small voice’.

Don’t wait until life’s circumstances cause you to slow down and seek the Lord by force!

…..Turn down the noise!

Redundant Angels

Monday Morning Coffee©️

Happy Monday people?

Do angels still exist? Ponder on this as you sip your hot morning coffee!

Several verses in the opening chapters of Hebrews relate to man and the angels. We all have differing views on the existence of angels but certainly the writer of Hebrews view is that they exist to do God’s will.

“Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister to them who shall be heirs of salvation?” Heb 1:14

Just as the angels appeared to Abraham to tell him about the birth of Isaac, the angel appeared to Mary announcing her miraculous conception. In Acts 10 an angel appeared to Cornelius too!

Angels still exist, but when God sends them to us are we sensitive enough to hear their message?

Have we made the angels redundant?

The angel is about to blow the final trumpet!

…..Are we ready?

Happy Reflection.

What’s on the other side?

Monday Morning Coffee ©️

Happy Monday people!

We are in the last quarter of the year! For most of us this year has been quite a journey, but that’s a story for another day.

In Mark 4 Jesus charged his disciples to cross over with him to the other side. We have read that account umpteen times but we tend to focus on the storm that arose on route, just the same way we focus on the storms rocking our boats right now!

Jesus slept through the storm because He knew what awaited Him on the other side. Fast track to the next chapter and you will understand why the storm came. A great miracle took place! A demoniac with a legion of unclean spirits got his breakthrough! No wonder all hell broke lose on the way! ….The devil went crazy!

What’s rocking your boat?

Focus on what’s on the other side……It’s your breakthrough!

Happy September!
