GENEROSITY

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

Recently, I felt hurt by some one close. She chose not to help me when I needed her most. I tried to let it go, but my mind kept rehearsing the situation. That is, until I stopped myself with this: “Stop focusing on the bad and be grateful for the good.” In minutes, the cloud lifted. Christmas is the perfect time for us to practice generosity. I’m not just talking about giving gifts although that’s a wonderful way to show…

HOW CAN I BE STRONG?

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

The hardest thing I ever did was give birth to my son. A baby’s head usually lengthens to help them pass through the birth canal. Not my boy’s. He was a gentle giant with a whopping head! It seems funny now, but when I was in labour, I worried that I would never get him out. In the midst of pain and pressure, I cried out: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!” And Benjamin was born….

KNOTS OF THE HEART

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

The law of gravity says that what goes up must come down. The law of the human heart says that what’s inside must come out: “Keep your heart with all diligence for out of it spring the issues of life.” Proverbs 4:23 (NKJV) However hard we try to conceal frustration, ignore insecurity, hide hatred or cover up competition, it comes out one way or another. Young’s Literal Translation shines more light on this verse:“Above every charge, keep thy heart, for…

DO YOU BOTTLE YOUR FEELINGS?

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

It’s easy to think that the way we are is just ‘the way we are’. Some people gush and others hold back. The Bible is clear than we need to show emotional self control. However, if our habits are bad for our health then we should probably take a closer look to see if there is a cause or even a cure. Tamar was King David’s daughter. She was a tender young woman with a bright future. All too often,…

IS YOUR HEART BECOMING HARD?

By | Uncategorised | One Comment

There is one heart issue that is a deal breaker for God. This matter of the heart has the capacity to keep you out of your ‘promised land’. Your promised land is dream deep inside that you long to see unfold. It is your highest potential and your greatest purpose. Psalm 95:7b-11 reads: “Do not harden your hearts… as in the day of trial in the wilderness… I was grieved with that generation… It is a people who go astray…

WHAT HAS SUNK TO THE BOTTOM OF YOUR SOUL?

The human heart is vast. Imagine an enormous storage vault filled with filing cabinets. Picture rows of drawers, all packed with files containing infinite numbers of folders. Contained within each binder is a memory, an imagination, or an emotion. Now see the door to that vault. It could be closed. Perhaps there is a ‘no entry’ sign hanging in the window. It may be ajar. It might be wide open. That is what our hearts are like. Psalm 64:6b in…

IT WILL COME TO PASS!

Hebrews 11:3 says that, “The worlds were framed by the word of God.” Think about that for a moment. All of nature was formed by words. Mountains, rivers, woods and oceans were all made as God spoke. The Bible tells us that we were made just like Him, in His image. God said to us, “You will also declare a thing, and it will be established for you.” (Job 22:28). The Lord wants us to use our words to bring…

YOUR HEART

Many years ago, I had the privilege of meeting an incredible couple that God used to lead a powerful revival in South America. Around two hundred thousand young people in one city had given up everything to follow Christ. We chatted as the pair shared their hearts. Their love and dedication made a lasting impact on me. They saw the call of God on my life and my hunger to be used by the Lord so they prayed for me…

WHERE’S YOUR HEART TAKING YOU?

By | Jo Naughton | No Comments

Many of us treat our cars better than we care for our hearts. We take our vehicles for regular checks yet what do we do to service our souls? Your car may take you to another city but it is your heart that will ensure you reach your destiny. Let’s look at five reasons to prioritise your heart: 1. Your GPS “Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.” Proverbs 4:23 (NLT). Your heart…

WHO AM I TO YOU?

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

One day Jesus asked His disciples who the people were saying He was. “Well,” they replied, “Some say John the Baptist, some say Elijah, and others say Jeremiah or one of the other prophets.” Jesus then asked his followers, “But who do you say that I am?” I was reading this recently and felt God ask you and me the same question. “Who do you say that He is?” What am I taking about? Let me explain… Mark 11:23 says…
