Just Drive!

Monday Morning Coffee ©️

Happy Monday good people!

Anyone who has ever driven with me will understand why I had to sit my driving test six times!

As we cruise towards the end of the year like the passengers in my car there will be mixed emotions.

Now life is not a nice smooth freeway, but a one-way road with traffic stops, speed bumps, potholes and road blocks…..and don’t forget those sneaky speed cameras!

Now and again we need to use our rearview mirrors to remind ourselves of how far God has brought us.

Sadly there are some who live life in reverse, transfixed on the past, unable to make progress and headed for a certain crash!

Forgetting those things which are behind I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God.” (Phil 3:13-14)

With God in the driving seat we can trust Him for better days ahead.

Hey!….Don’t look back! …..Remember Lot’s wife!

The Soil of Uncertainty

Monday Morning Coffee ©️

Happy Monday people!

I woke this morning with the ‘When Lord?’ question on my mind. If you can identify with me then this post is for you.

Every farmer expects a harvest after sowing seed but it is what happens in between that matters. The real test of faith is in the soil; when you have to believe for what you can’t see. This is where most people miss it!

How do you keep believing for what you can’t see? How do you function when you are underneath mounds of earth and you can’t see your way out?

This was Joseph’s lot. He was abandoned in the dungeon of the prison for several years until the day he was called to stand before pharaoh.

Gen 41:14 ‘Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they brought him quickly out of the dungeon; he shaved, changed his clothing, and came to Pharaoh’

Don’t let your dreams die in the soil of uncertainty. Just like Joseph, God is working underground for you!

Something is growing in the soil…..And it’s pretty!

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!
