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 all...so 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…

It'll All Be Over Soon...don't miss it!

Well the time is flying isnt it? (or is that just me?)
Ready or not, 2017 is coming to an end and Christmas is fast approaching.


Every. Single. Year. I declare "This is the Christmas I'm going to be calm / spend less / really feel ready and at peace / have time for people / feel close to Jesus and hear His voice / have time and space to enjoy the run-up...and so on (sound familiar anyone?)

Anyone else secretly echoing this top's sentiments in their thoughts?!?!

I'm not an earlybird, or the most organised - and get this, right now I can't find my little Christmas notebook - you know, the one with the last last 4 years of presents given and received listed - anywhere!!!! If you heard Simon preach on Sunday you'll know this is driving me mad!

I'd really love to hear your tips for enjoying and flourishing during this season. We don't' want to just "survive it" do we!
Here are a few of mine.

Hello again :)

Long time no see!!!!
What to talk about after so long an absence?!?!

I've had so many wonderful experiences and opportunities recently, and so I can't wait to tell you the stories of my travel to support women's conferences in Albania and Macedonia. 

God was so good to us, and it was such a privilege to travel there with our wonderful Kerith women, to pray for the Balkan women and to stand alongside them as their sisters, encouraging them in their faith. 
We had adventures; new experiences; thunder storms and sunshine; lost luggage and unexpected gifts. We saw salvations and re-commitments; we prayed for women of all ages and backgrounds; some of us were more successful at mastering the language than others, but we had a go! We sang worship songs in a mixture of "have-a-go-Albanian" and the few English lines we could remember (and just kept repeating them!) 
We gave away what we had in terms of our faith and trust in God. We know that we received so much from being th…
