Before It Snaps!

Monday Morning Coffee©️

Happy Monday people!
Another hot mug of coffee served up with some sober reflections!

Connie Kaldor once said: “Life is a thin thread, a thin little hand on a hospital bed and all the things left unsaid”

Recently a close friend went to bed hale and hearty and by the next morning she was in hospital with multiple organ failure fighting for her life! Miraculously she is still here..

If you opened your eyes this morning then you have just received the bonus of a new day.

Life is a gift not a human right!….Don’t take it for granted.

Life is a thin thread….Make it count before it snaps!

The Ugliness Beneath

Monday Morning Coffee©️

Happy Monday people!
All that glitters is not gold!

The bible tells a story of a beautiful city with a dark side. The water supply was bad so the land was barren. How can a barren city look so beautiful?

We know that beneath the semblance of beauty and display of opulence and affection on Social Media lies a whole lot of ugliness and pain!

You don’t want to know what really goes on behind the marbled walls of that mansion on your street. Even Buckingham Palace has its dark secrets. We have become experts at keeping up appearances!

True healing only comes from knowing God….Stop dressing up your ugliness!

Happy Reflection!

Try Again!

Happy Monday people!

Most will understand how it feels to be surrounded by people who have the one thing you will give anything to have and seem to take it for granted. I have been up that street so many times!

How do you keep going after hitting so many brick walls, and then the bar just seems to move each time?

Isaac attempted to re-dig his fathers old wells and each time his enemies filled them with sand. Isaac kept digging until he got the victory. The wall of Jericho did not fall on the first day either, but the people kept marching.

This post is for those who have or are on the verge of giving up.

Don’t hang your nets just yet, be relentless, keep trying!

…Your dreams are valid!

Overdue Obedience

Monday Morning Coffee©️

Happy Monday People!

As I write this post I am in unbearable pain, I can barely open my eyes and my face is the size of a huge pumpkin! A routine tooth extraction has been complicated by a huge abscess. I am on a myriad of antibiotics and pain pills but nothing is touching the pain!

Now I didn’t need to have an extraction, I was careless with my teeth because of a dentist phobia! Now see where it has led me. I am off work and I have had to cancel my clinics! I am lying in bed now thinking about my patients and hating myself.

How about you? What is that thing you need to do that you keep putting off? Don’t forget that other people’s lives are tied to your own obedience and delay could cost you dearly!

As we coast Into the last quarter of 2019, please remember that the best time is NOW!

Dump the Junk!

Monday Morning Coffee©️

Happy Monday people!
This will be served hot!

If the Lord comes today, how many of us would be found in places and positions far different from those in which we would wish to be found?

Saul, Israel’s first king described as a tall fine man, ran away on the day of his coronation and hid behind baggage!

Sadly most of us are exactly like Saul; hiding away comfortably behind the junk of our old lives; avoiding the responsibilities of carrying a heavenly crown.

That day of reckoning looms closer and closer! Don’t be caught out!

….Dump the junk!

Surprise!….Surprise!

Happy Monday people!

Have you wondered how help often comes from the least expected source in your moment of need?

I worked with a lady on a case a few weeks ago, I was meeting her for the first time, and somehow the Lord has opened so many opportunities for me through this chance meeting and I am so grateful.

The Lord has a habit of sending help in unusual packages, He sent the ravens, the stingiest of all birds and a poor widow to sustain Elijah in the time of famine.

Who would ever have imagined that David, a willy shepherd boy would deliver his people from the fury of Goliath?

Then of course, Jesus, the greatest gift of all was born in a manger, not in a five-star hotel and was presented to the world in swaddling clothes not in designer wear!

If you focus on the container you may miss the content!

This week your breakthrough may come in an unusual package too ….Don’t miss it!

The Signpost

Monday Morning Coffee©️

Happy Monday people!
Your coffee this morning is served hot with a dose of bitter soul-stirring truths!

There is a signpost that directs you off the motorway into my city, and each time I turn into my exit, I hear the Lord say to me “Don’t be a signpost!” While that signpost bears the name of my city, it will never come into my city. It remains on the motorway!

Apostle Paul’s prayer was that after he had preached to others, he is not disqualified from making Heaven! (1Cor 9:27) This is why he admonished us to work out our salvation with fear and trembling.

In what ways are we just being signposts? How do we live our lives behind closed doors?

I quake in my boots at the very thought that after we have shown others the way that we ourselves become disqualified from going through those pearly gates!

Are we just fancy signposts?…….Lord have mercy! (Sorry, but the truth is bitter!)
