God is our strength  2 Corinthians 12 v 9 – 10 ‘But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.’ Maybe some of us…

Equipping This bible equips us for life of faith whether reading proverbs or books of the new testament and throughout the ages God has equipped the most unlikely people to do amazing work. Moses was called by God to lead his people out of Egypt, in Exodus 3.11 11 But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?” This weekend as a family we have been sorting out the garden…
