My Guardian

Whatever today holds, we're not alone - the Bible says that God is with us now, He goes before us, He's there behind us:

Psalm 139:5 You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head.

Isaiah 52:12 For the Lord will go ahead of you; yes, the God of Israel will protect you from behind

I love how Ben Cantelon expresses it in his song "Guardian" - we've sung it on a Sunday, and we sang it at the Willow GLS that we hosted in Kerith last week, and it was a powerful experience to sing and declare these truths together.

This rainy Tuesday morning it could be just as powerful for you in your kitchen, or in your car, or on your school run as you listen to this great song, join in, and let your faith rise. "You go before me, You're there beside me, and if I wander, Love will find me. Goodness and mercy will always follow, You go before me, my Guardian"

Whatever today holds, God is with each one of us.

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
