An Autumn (Fall) Prayer


The coolness in the air and the turning of the leaves reminds us of a new season. God, we ask you to renew our spirit. Let our family actions speak the truth of your love. Let those who see us know you a little better. This we ask through your Son, Amen.

God speak to me…
The man whispered, ‘God, speak to me.’ And a meadowlark sang.
But, the man did not hear.
Then the man yelled ‘God, speak to me.’ Thunder rolled across the sky.
But, the man did not listen

The man looked around and said, ‘God, let me see you.’
And the stars shined brightly.
But the man did not notice.

And, the man shouted, ‘God, show me a miracle.’
And, a life was born.
But the man did not know.

So, the man cried out in despair, ‘Touch me God, and let me know
you are here.’ Whereupon, God reached down and touched the man.
But, the man brushed the butterfly away and walked on.

So remember, don’t miss out on a blessing because it
isn’t packaged the way that you expect.
Take notice of the blessings around you.

Life in our house has been super busy this week…so much happening and so little time for it all to be fulfilled.

I am blessed by the changes though. My youngest daughter continues to grow and thrive in her Christian school, she is in year 10 which means shes doing her preparations for GCSE’s. My other daughter, is in College now after completeing her General Certificate, Level 1 in the A.C.E program we did since my elder 2 children were small!!

My health is a small cause for concern at the moment but I wait patiently on the Lord for His healing touch.

Today is a new day and new things are in line to happen. God has my days ordered and I await patiently for them to enfold…..

Monday Morning!

So much has happened since I lost wrote anything on here…

Where to begin?

Well, I have a new grandaughter, born 8 weeks ago and who is the best gift in a long time for us. She is a Princess.

My life got hit pretty hard, spiritually, and I am slowly recovering from that…I have not hurt that bad in such a while ,it shook my foundations..truly.

I am wanting to get back on track in so many areas and writing on here is one of my goals…

Thus says the Lord Who made a way through the sea, A path through the mighty waters.
Remember not the former things,
Neither consider the things of old.
Behold, I am doing a new thing,
Even now it is springing to light.
Do you not perceive it?
A way will I make in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert!

Isaiah 43:16, 18-19.

Misty

 

Allow me to tell you all about my new friend…

A couple months back we lost our other dog , Amelia, to heart disease and it devastated the whole family as that made it we had lost both the dogs in a fairly short time really.

Anyhow, my older daughter heard of a greyhound supporter who rescued them from all kinds of peril and looked to re home them.

We made contact with Julie and almost immediately went along to see her dogs.

We fell for Misty…

We brought her home and after a while she settled in well. She has her *own* routine lol…

You have no idea how much fun this big dog is!!

She has a character of all her own.

The best part is , we go for walks 2 – 3 times a day and every time we get to talk to someone who I may never have spoken to before…neighbours along our road, new people in the area, foreigners who are working here, temporarily, and am tripping out over how God is not only presenting me with a community to reach out with His love to, but am building up a rapore with them so that I get to mention, or talk about Jesus and it may be their very first time ever to have heard of the love of God.

Not only that, God has a true sense of humor . Generally, I hate walking as a rule, but since Misty arrived I have no choice in the matter!! She needs a walk, I need the exercise and all in all its happening without my thinking too much on it!

Here Misty enjoys her bed…a huge duvet with cover, just so soft and homely!!

For all [these] things are [taking place] for your sake, so that the more grace (divine favor and spiritual blessing) extends to more and more people and multiplies through the many, the more thanksgiving may increase [and redound] to the glory of God.

~Neglected Blog~

O I don’t quite know why? Perhaps I have been too busy in everything, recently, to think about writing my thoughts and stuff on line!!

Anyhow, today I thought I would update it and bring any readers who visit me my latest pondering s.

Somehow, God is holding me through what has actually been a difficult time for me. I have struggled with some issues that held me back from running the race in full view of everyone.

I became discouraged and despondent with some areas in my life that I knew needed altering and changing but just could not do it.

Then God challenged me.

He confirmed plans He has for me up ahead and I KNEW that today I need to apply the principles of God’s Word to my life and see to it that no longer do I live to please me or men but for Him who has done so much in my life already.

I have found I have gifts and abilities from God, and He is using me in the capacity of administration.

I LOVE what I do for Him and I cannot boast in anything except Christ Jesus.

It is HIS Grace which has kept me from stepping back and being in a place I never want to be found in again.

Bring The Rain

Ahh Friday again!

Do you ever feel like, where is the time going?

I sure do…doesn’t seem to be enough hours in my days at times to do all I need to .

My older daughter commented on my goings and to ings last night, she said ” mum, you need to slow down, you do loads, ” to which I replied, “well not sue what I can down size” but God knows me dosn’t He…so I think I will have a chat with Him today.

In saying that, I also feel that we will have eternity in which to slow down….maybe we won’t in the way we think of time here on earth huh…I truly love all I am doing and cannt see me ever resenting it.

My List of Do’s!

I do what a mother and wife needs to do, daily.

I do a newsletter for our P.U.S.H prayer meetings every month (lots of prayer and research at times goes into this)

I do the dog walking

I do manage my website

I do run my girls around here and ther and where ever is neccessary

I do things in secret for the Lord (sorry , can’t even write them here)

So , all in all, others may think I do too much but I think I do not do enough!!

Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you.
Psalm 37:5 (NLT)

What does that supposed to mean? It refers to our practice of linking all our works and desires to the glory of God. In other words, we do everything for the glory to God.

We commit the things that we do to his glory so that the results of our works are the reflection on his glory.
Once we are in this mindset, we will be destined to triumph over every challenge that comes our way. The second part of Psalm 37:5 tells us to trust him and he will help us. We have to trust him first before he will help us. Why is that so? Why must we make the first move in trusting him? Why can’t God help us first? He respects us. He will not force himself into our lives and insists on helping us regardless of our feelings just as he does not force every human being to be saved.

So, in conclusion, I think once we have God as our helper, there is nothing we cannot achieve. Amen!!

~Today Is A Sad Day~

Amelia December 1998 – March 2008

Today we had to make a brave decision to allow our beloved pet die with dignity.

She took so ill over the weekend, that the kindest thing for her was to allow her to be at peace.

Prayers for all our family are appreciated as we go through this sad time, thanks

Update

The time flies past so quickly, and more so when you are busy with stuff..

My daughter celebrated her 14th birthday yesterday and so on top of everything else she is one blessed young lady!!

She flies out a week on Friday and is ever so excited. I am too for her….seems like yesterday the school put this forward to them all.

We have been successful in raising our own funds, GLORY to God for the ideas though…

Some students who are going have been soooooo blessed as their supporters have donated huge sums of money whereas in my daughters case shes had to believe God and we have seen the money come in, slowly but surely.

We have a couple, we barely know, who have regularly sent her £5 a week out of their pension…its that kind of support that touches your heart! 

Anyway I am glad the fund raising is drawing to an end and basically all her needs have been met.We have learnt such a lot in trusting our Lord, this is the kind of things you need to bring an increas in your faith.

Luke 17:5… And the apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith.”
