3 Words of Wisdom

Today we joined the local Gym...and celebrated by going to Starbucks for cappuccino and cake (yes, really)
Prior to the momentous "joining",  I turned the house, each drawer and every one of my bags out, searching for my Edge card. Eventually found it after we returned (it always happens like that doesn't it?!).
I find It really frustrating when I cant find things, and become totally "on a mission" about finding the lost item!
However, I did make a great discovery in one of the bags - as well as 50p, a lost lipstick and a few paperclips, I'd printed out a few lines from a blog earlier in the year, and kept it in my work bag. Such wise words, I'm going to pass them on!

3 Words of Wisdom:
Based on Proverbs 18:21-The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit. Words can create or destroy, they can build-up or tear-down.

1. Guard your heart against toxic words (Prov 4:23). We can’t control what other people say about us, but we can control what we believe.

2. Speak life-giving words to others every chance you get (Eph 4:29). Any time you think something good about someone else, say it.

3. Speak life-giving words to yourself and to your circumstances (Mark 11:23). We align our words with God’s truth-if His word says it, we say it
(Craig Groeschel, quoted on Holly Furtick's blog)

You joined the gym? Yay for you! And I love these fabulous words of wisdom, the tongu has monumentous power to both destroy and to build up...I have been on the receiving end of both (and certainly given out both too). I can confirm that the latter is life-transforming! A great one to consistently be reminded of. Thank you x

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 …
