Notes from Sunday

"Today is all for Him, to Him and about Him. I love being in His house" Charlotte Gambill

I agree with Charlotte! I love being in Kerith on a Sunday - His house. This last Sunday was a brilliant day, and I had the privilege of being in all three meetings - lots of people to meet, the opportunity to pray for people, 3 great times of worship and 3 listens of my husband's preach! I know you'll say I'm biased, but he really is my favourite preacher.  This week was the Prodigal God part 3 - The Lost Son. If you missed it, or want to listen again, you can find the whole series so far here.
I know that God will speak to you through Simon's words. Each week I take notes during the sermon - and often also jot down thoughts, words from the worship songs, prayer requests etc. It helps me to focus, and to try and discern what God's whispering to me each day.

What was the Holy Spirit whispering to you ?

Here's a few of my thoughts from Sunday - hope they encourage you too!

- Our Father runs towards us!
- It's no credit to us that we are rescued -it's all about the Rescuer
- You can miss God by being very bad
- You can miss God by being very good. 
- "Our Saviour's here" - what would that mean to me if I really understood that, in every moment of today?
- "Find you in the place I'm in; Find You when there's nothing left of me to offer You but brokenness; Find You on my knees".
- There's something wrong with the son's heart - he loves the father's possessions more than he loves the father.

Guest Blog: Esther in Indonesia

I'm delighted to welcome Esther Ross-Watson to my Blog today! She is a dearly loved member of our Kerith family. She and her late husband Michael served as missionaries for many years. Esther bravely made the decision to travel again, and she has recently returned from Indonesia. Here's her story:  Whilst Michael was on his last days on earth in August 2017 he received a request from the Island of Madura, Indonesia asking us to return to the town of Pamekasen, Madura, Indonesia where we had begun our Missions work in July 1973 exactly one year after we were married. They were keen to have us see what God had been doing in the years since we’d moved on and we excitedly said ‘Yes’ we will come!   Obviously that had to go on hold for a while because I didn’t feel I could, or even wanted to go alone! Anyway around March/April time 2018, I begun to feel a gentle nudging of the Holy Spirit urging me to think some more about it! It was like a feeling of wanting to know

3 Little Bottles

Thought I'd mix it up today and do something lighthearted here. I popped into town this morning (as an aside, anyone else still incredulous that "new Bracknell / The Lexicon is so great and that it's really here to stay?!)  Anyhow, I popped into town for a quick wander and bought 3 "essentials" I'd run out of, so I thought I'd share them with you - and of course I'd love to hear about your 3 recent essential purchases. 1 Contact lense solution I've worn glasses since Secondary school, and contact lenses since I left Uni. Gas permeables - great for me - slightly perilous in swimming pools / the sea / other people's sinks (£80 to replace). They work for me - and so a couple of bottles of solution each month keep me going.I ran out a couple of days ago, so it was £4.70 well spent for clean lenses and clear eyesight. 2. "Buffet" by The Ordinary This was a new one for me, a present I received last Christmas. I LOVE it and can

Meeting my Hero

Yesterday, I met one of my heroes! Bobbie Houston of Hillsong is a beautiful woman! I love her teachings, her godly wisdom, her self deprecating humour. I love the way she leads the whole Colour conference and Sisterhood movement. I listen to her podcasts and read her articles and books. Here at the Global Leadership Summit in Willow Creek,Chicago, her husband Brian gave the most extraordinary, vulnerable and honest responses to Bill Hybel's interview ( notes here) He was signing books at the end of the break and as I turned a corner, there she was! Not being mobbed by fans, but just chatting with a couple of people. Not sure if many of you realise this, but I'm actually an introvert, and quite shy. No really, I am! There's no way I would confidently walk up to someone I admire and begin a conversation! So I walked away. But as I was walking, I thought about how much I'd regret not being brave enough to say Hi..or to thank her for her
