Sunday's Food

So when I've already slept for an uncomfortable hour on the sofa, and then finally make it up the stairs to my bed, and all of the cares and regrets and worries and "not done yet" items on my "to do list" are swirling around my head, THATS when I need to remember the food I received on Sunday. The tools I received on Sunday. The encouragement to put Jesus at the centre, and to turn my worries into prayers . So, miraculously, the song "Christ is enough" surfaced in my thinking - thank you Jesus - and got my perspective back. So here's a couple of great reminders in song and words written along that same (life giving) theme that's helped me this week - hope they help you too.

Christ is enough

About this video
"Christ Is Enough by Hillsong is new and featured on their upcoming album, Glorious Ruins. It is a song of devotion that celebrates Christ’s sufficiency for our lives. Often we fill our lives with busyness and surround ourselves with things that meet our own needs. But ultimately, as believers, we have to separate ourselves from those things and make sure we keep Christ at the center. We should find ourselves in a place where no matter what is taken away or given to us, Christ is our goal and is more than enough. That's when we really come alive. Not only is Christ sufficient, our sustainer, and our healer, but He is our Redeemer. The sacrifice of Himself, given for our sin, was enough to cover our sin, give us hope, and to reconcile us to God. This song can help focus your church on the death and resurrection of Christ and gives them an opportunity to respond by declaring that Christ is enough."

Hey Soul? You're so not alone: Life gets messy & your plans get scribbled over. Let's try: Erase every worry today with the perfect eraser of prayer. Prayer erases worries & you get the relief of needed white space. The happy miracle of it: It's impossible to pray & worry at the same time!

"Give all your worries & cares to God, for He cares about you." 1 Peter 5:7
The equation of a good day: Give your worries to God ---and He gives you peace.

African sky

I'm writing this in the eerie light of Monday afternoon - anyone else noticed the yellow-tinged sky? I'm reliably informed (thanks Jake!) that the high winds are picking up dust particles from Liberia and North Africa, turning our sky a yellowish colour and definitely giving off an unusual atmosphere! Kind of intriguing too, as we are about to leave for a 10 day trip to Zambia this evening! We're flying overnight, and when we get there temperatures are high 90s - I have no idea how I'm going to cope with that at I'm not even thinking about it right now! 
We'll stay a few days in Lusaka, visiting Sam and Hannah Fairs-Billam and their girls;  and Tehila, the charity they run, Then it's a 5 hour journey North to reconnect with the pastors and families in Serenje, and visit the Dormitory to meet the girls. 
Please do pray for us - safety and good health, pray for our families, pray that everywhere we go we take people up in their lift! (If like me you…

Not the Summer I'd Planned

"Life's detours means  God wants you to run right into His arms  so He can reconstruct your heart"  Ann Voskamp
Well, let's just say that it's not been the summer I thought I was going to have!!! 
I'm so grateful we had our relaxing holiday in the sunshine
I'm so grateful it's summer time, and therefore not so many work commitments
I'm so grateful for my family being around
I'm so grateful for a wonderful and kind church family

If I was going to have an accident slip over on the back door my wedges...feeding the dogs.. and dislocate and fracture my ankle...then I'm so glad I was at home with family around and with access to swift expert medical help.

The accident was so sudden and it was immediately obvious that I couldn't sort it on my own! I'm pretty squeamish so I'll save you the details, but the angle of my foot prompted me to say out loud "I've just done something really bad".

Funny isn't it, when yo…

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 …
