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.

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
