Give the Right Gift

Monday Morning Coffee©

Happy Monday people!

It’s that frenzied expensive season again!…Christmas!

In our mad rush to get things ready we must not lose sight of the essence of the season.

The three wise men from the East came to baby Jesus bearing their own precious gifts. (Matt2:1)

Is there a present for Jesus under your Christmas tree too? What will you give Him this year?

The Lord is not expecting a gift of silver or gold. He wants a contrite rededicated heart, renewed commitment and reconciliation.

The Lord wants a changed life! Let’s make that our gift to Him.

Come on! ….. Wrap it up nicely!

Merry Christmas!

All Change Please!

Monday Morning Coffee©️

Happy Monday people!

What do we do when our best laid out plans suddenly change or when life seems to come to an abrupt stop?

Those of us who use the trains will be very familiar with the “All Change Please!” announcement.

Last Friday I was privileged to attend the What’s Your Story 2018 Conference in the city of London. I was one of the speakers last year but this year it was refreshing to sit and listen to other people share their life stories. We cried, laughed and cried again!

If you must succeed then be ready for change. On this journey of life we may have to change trains several times!

Success is often wrapped up in failure and every disappointment is an opportunity.

Saul went out in search of his fathers lost donkeys but returned as King of Israel!

Perhaps the person to move you to your next level may be on another train…..All change please!

Happy Reflection!

Name Your Hurricane!

Monday Morning Coffee©️

Happy Monday good people!

For a long time I wondered how and why hurricanes were named.

All last week the young man Jonah was on my mind; a man who was swallowed by a whale and lived to tell the tale! Jonah 1-2

Jonah was running from doing the will of God; as a matter of fact he was running in the opposite direction, so God sent a storm after him. I’ll like to name the storm Hurricane Jonah!

I have also encountered storms in my own life in times of disobedience. Can you identify with me?

Perhaps that storm raging in your life right now is a hurricane with your own name on it!

God is calling!….Stop running!

Happy December!

What Fragrance?

Monday Morning Coffee©️

Happy Monday people!

We all have that perfume we only use for special occasions. Mine is Le Gemme by Bvlgari; a gift from my son. I call it my Alabaster box!

One woman knelt before Jesus and broke her own Alabaster box, pouring it’s costly contents on His feet!

(Luke 7:36-50)

….And she knew why!

Cece Winans sang “Don’t be angry if I wash his feet with my tears.”

“You weren’t there the night He found me.”

“And you don’t know the cost of the oil in my alabaster box.”

“Worship is giving God the best that He has given you.” -Oswald Chambers

Until our Alabaster box is broken there will be no fragrance!

Worship God this morning …..Let Him smell something nice!

…..Because you too know why!

Reserved Seating

Monday Morning Coffee©

Happy Monday people!

The socialites among us will understand how it feels to turn up for an event and have to go looking for an empty seat, then end up sitting next to somebody they don’t know or like!

It’s the same way the Lord feels when He comes into our lives and has to sit in the corner of the room like a mop or broom, only used when needed!

The Lord deserves a reserved seat, an altar, a place nobody else can go, where we meet with Him up close and personal, a place where deep calls onto deep; where the flesh is severed.

Nothing in our lives will make sense, or take shape unless we first repair our prayer altars.

On Mount Carmel Elijah repaired the altar before the consuming fire fell from heaven. If we also want to walk in the miraculous then we have to do the same.

This morning I hear the Lord say that He wants reserved seating. We need to repair our prayer altars.

Let’s get to work!

Issues in Our Tissues!

Monday Morning Coffee ©️

Happy Monday people!

Our women’s group Dinner With Jesus held it’s annual workshop at the weekend, with the theme ‘Worth Much More’.

Women of all shades and colours gathered together all broken and in need of a loving saviour!

As women, underneath our beautiful facades are tear-soaked (or blood-soaked) tissues full of issues. We keep trudging on bent almost double by the burdens we carry.

We sit in church with our issues for years unable to speak out for fear of being judged by those meant to help us, like the woman who was bent over for 18 years! Can you identify with this too?

Jesus came for broken women like us; the sick, the abused and molested, those with a difficult child, or in a difficult marriage and those stuck in the shame or guilt of the past. Yes! talk about all our issues of blood!

Take a bold step, hand those soaked tissues to Jesus.

Yes! …..Something good WILL come out of Nazareth!

Who’s Calling?

Monday Morning Coffee©️

Happy Monday people!

How many of us will pick up our phones when we see a No Caller ID notification?

I personally have missed some important opportunities by ignoring such calls. Sometimes the Lord calls us with a ‘No Caller ID’ too.

In the heat of the day out of the blues three men appeared in front of Abraham’s tent. Immediately he sprung into action and said to Sarah “Make ready quickly three measures of fine meal.”….(Genesis 18:6-8)

After this act of hospitality to total strangers Abraham received the promise of his breakthrough.

I pray that in the busyness that this week will thrust on us, like Abraham we will not miss that call that will lead to a breakthrough or the call to reach out to someone in need.

The Lord may call without a Caller ID ….Pick up the phone!
