June 16/21 – Life is simple when you plough around a stump.

LifeSimpleStump

Sometimes life dictates that you must go through the stump. With prayer God will bring you through and out the other side. You may have a few scratches and blisters but the courage and strength you’ve gained will be invaluable.

Peace to you.

June 9/21 – Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

One mouth two ears. A good listener is a gift of grace. I know it can be difficult to not give  your lip service with an opinion or advice, but most people want to be heard. It’s the best way to give grace and support. Not sure? Pray on it.

Peace to you.

Apr.7/21 – Good timber does not grow with ease; the stronger the wind, the stronger the trees.

goodTimber

When we are in the midst of life’s storms, troubles and concerns we don’t see them as building blocks. It’s hard. But once we come through the storm we are stronger and have gained knowledge and foresight. We can help others with our experiences. Remember if God brings you to it… He will bring you through it.

Peace to you.

Mar. 31/21 – You can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving.

Givewithoutloving

I read we must always test our motives. You see the human is but a self serving being. Am I  genuine or filling a selfish need? Is it my personal ambition or am I being obedient? Read 1 Corthinians 13, it talks of the excellence of love. Verse 13 But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Peace to you.
