Labels



Here's a question for everyone of us - and one I find I need to answer every day, hour and minute as I make decisions and choices, and consider my motives.

What is it in life that gives us worth? Do we get our worth and value from the labels that we wear - busy? wealthy? young? people-pleaser? wise? mother? independent? ...?

Or do we get our worth from how God views us? Unique. Worth dying for. Priceless.

" Many women do noble things but you surpass them all. Charm is deceptive, beauty fleeting; but a women who fears the Lord is to be praised." Proverbs 31 v30

From one 'Perfect' (NOT!) woman to another, I'd like to say how much your sermon hit home on Sunday. It is so easy to HATE the woman from Proverbs 31, and only see where I fall short, when actually it is who God sees that is important. And He sees me as His child, His daughter, His princess - priceless. It is God in me that makes me so - there's nothing I can do to become more like Him except to allow Him to do His work in me. Sometimes it is hard to feel 'priceless' when 'worthless' or 'helpless' are more apt descriptions of how I'm really feeling. Thank you for the bookmark to help me remember that these 'feelings' are not the truth, that I really am 'Priceless'!

Well - having totally locked in to what you were saying on Sunday, I'm wondering what happened. It's Thursday. Tiredness has kicked in, kids have played up, work has been done and the rock solid assurance I had on Sunday that I really am priceless almost feels like a dim distant memory. I say almost. I guess what I'm locking horns with today is whether I'm going to believe the feelings or the truth. I swiped one of the 'priceless' labels - well someone left it on my chair. I need it. I know that in my cupboard under the stairs hands a label that reads 'priceless' and despite the fact that I feel about 1p, God's verdict is quite the opposite. So right now, the squishy feelings aren't here. The truth is. I'm going to trust that.

With you all the way Ali...when the emotions take over it's hard to remember those truths but that's what we're called to do...

Am really enjoying the 'All I need is Jesus and a good pair of Jeans' book great recommendation Catrina thankyou.

I Have Decided To Follow Jesus, No Turning Back

I have decided to follow Jesus...no turning back.Take a listen to this beautiful song from Hillsong - every time I hear these words and sing along it changes my perspective, turns me around, gets my focus off me and onto Jesus - "Christ Is Enough For Me". ...No turning back, I've been set free...Christ is enough for me.

Discover your Worth, your Strength, your Purpose

Following a successful Kerith launch in the Spring, Sarah Farley and her team are ready to go again,leading their 2nd SHINE course.
SHINE is an eight week self esteem course for women. The evenings are a mixture of Talks and discussion time, with a practical approach to learning. It's a really encouraging environment, and the evenings are a lot of fun. The course starts this Tuesday evening, and there are still some spaces available.Here's your personal invite from Sarah!Shine is about to run again and I'm excited to see what God is going to do this time round. If you haven't already heard, Shine is a course designed for women who want to live their life in abundance, the way God designed them to live it. To recognise all their worth, to grow in self-esteem, to see all their strengths and positives and ultimately live a life of purpose.We've still got a few places left so if you're interested there's more information here on the Kerith website, where you can…

It's been a while

So, I've been gone a while....and  I've been wondering about launching a new blog - perhaps a new look,a new blog, a totally new start? In the wondering I've done nothing, so instead, I'm just going to pick it up again, and start writing.... 
So this week I had the privilege of spending time with some Prayer warriors in the Kerith Prayer room. We gathered to pray for the upcoming Mission Trips to Albania and Macedonia.  - They did me such good, as they shared what God had been saying to them in their own prayer times - words of encouragement that He will bring restoration of relationships; He will bring healing ; there will be lots of new people who haven't been to UNIKE before; there'll be a fresh move of the Holy Spirit; somethingnewandmoreis going to happen this year; He is going to take things to another level. You can imagine how excited I was to hear these whispers from God - join me in a moment's prayer right now, that we'll see Him work?
It's …
