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!)

Burn Baby!…Burn


Happy Monday people!
I woke up this morning thanking God for my freedom!

One of the famous castles in Ghana’s dark episode of slavery is the Cape Cost Castle which has been converted into a slave trade museum, visited daily by people from all over the world. For most this is a very expensive and sad trip!

Museums are great, but often emotionally draining because they deal with the past and for most the past is not a happy place.

Sadly a lot of us are still slaves in our own museums!

“Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.”
(Is 43:18)

Have you considered what it would be like if you burned down your museum?

We All Need Friends!

Monday Morning Coffee©

Happy Monday people!
Today, I am moved by recent observations to talk about friendships.

As we get older our friendship circle naturally diminishes. Life happens, sadly some friends gain their angels wings and leave us, others may drift away because they have other priorities.

We must never assign the responsibility for our happiness to our friends because believe it or not, true friends will hurt us but will be quick to make amends.

Our true friends will not be perfect; they will have serious flaws like we do, but true friendship accepts that the weaknesses are there, but chooses to love anyway…..The ride or die friends!

True friends will tell us the truth even if it hurts!….Don’t take offence.

Lastly true friendship comes with a price tag and is not cheap! May our love cover the cost…..Like God’s love covered the cost of ours!

Send your friends a love note today!

Clogged Drains

Monday Morning Coffee©️

Happy Monday people!
I will serve it hot today!

What are you planning to do with all that junk called unforgiveness lurking away in the remote corners of your heart?

This junk physically clogs up our arteries and veins and makes us ill, spiritually it clogs up our vision, rendering us unfit for the Master’s use!

We have all been hurt; but no matter how anointed we think we are, NONE of us will enter those pearly gates of Heaven with unforgiveness!

Unforgiveness makes us unraptureable!….It’s that simple!

Unblock those drains today!

Devotion or Service?

Monday Morning Coffee©️

 

Happy Monday people!

Do you agree there is a fine line between devotion and service?

Bob Gass once said:

The greatest competitor of our devotion to God is service for Him.

Most of us are busy, very busy, and too busy “doing church” and yet lacking in devotion to God.

Bob Gass describes this group of people as being ‘saints in the courts of Babylon’ and at the same time ‘backsliders in the courts of Zion”!

May we be sensitive to recognise when we are crossing the line.

Good morning!

Consequences!

Monday Morning Coffee@

Happy Monday people!
As we sip our steaming hot coffee his morning, let’s reflect on some soul-stirring truths on sowing and reaping:

If we sow we will ALWAYS reap.
We will reap WHATEVER we sow.
We will reap MORE than we sow.

“For they that sow the wind, shall reap the whirlwind.” Hosea 8:7

There will always be a harvest!….What will we find in our harvest basket?

Good morning.

Sing A New Song

Monday Morning Coffee©️



Happy Monday people!
Yesterday I listened to an intensely emotional testimony of a man delivered from 20 years of severe pain and a 10 year battle with a psychotic illness, alcoholism and drug addiction….The perfect ‘miry clay’ combination!

Nothing describes a place of darkness, despair and uncertainty as vividly as the miry clay. In the miry clay one is on a downward spiral and knows it. It is a bottomless pit of quicksand and the more you move the more you sink!

King David described his encounter with God in the miry clay. He waited patiently, and God lifted him out, placed his feet on solid ground, established him and gave him a new song. (Ps 40:1)

Today Spencer’s new song is drawing others to place their trust in God.

Wait! ……You will be singing your new song next!
