Thought for the day

Is there light at the end of the tunnel? As far as the coronavirus tunnel is concerned, I’m not sure there is yet! We are definitely moving in the right direction but I don’t think it’s at all clear how long the tunnel will be or even what the end of the tunnel will look like. God’s timing is perfect though. He is not bound by time like we are – a concept that is extremely difficult for our finite…

“You alone are the LORD.  You made the heavens even the highest heavens and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You gave life to everything and the multitudes of heaven worship you” Nehemiah 9.6 A truth I have always found amazing and wonderful, but totally beyond my understanding is that our awesome Father God, Creator of the Universe, “the LORD Most High…the Great King over all the…

Prayer Sometimes I think we, as children of  our Father God, forget how much power we have to make a difference. I know I forget sometimes how prayer changes things.Paul writes:- “I pray also  that the eyes of your heart may  be enlightened that you may know – – – –  His incomparable great power  for us  who believe. That power is like the working of His mighty strength which He exerted in  Christ when He raised  Him  from the…

Counting our blessings I always remember a conversation I had with a lovely godly lady a few years ago (some of you will know her as Eileen…). She said that every morning she thanked God for all her blessings – she ‘counted her blessings’. God gives us so many blessings every single day. Sometimes it’s the simple things that we can so easily take for granted, like a roof over our heads, food to eat and clean water to drink. This strange…

Bookmarks Looking through my Bile App at some of the verses I have hi-lighted over the years, I find it fascinating to look back and see what impacted me at the time. I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!’ Galatians 2:21 The above verse (bookmarked in 2011) Paul is talking about how we are saved by grace and faith alone. Those who have been saved…

Names these days are a  matter of fashion and  personal choice.They  don’t represent the character of the bearer. My name comes from St. Cecilia, the patron saint of music.It was said her singing was so beautiful that angels came down to listen.  My singing was never good and now makes my granddaughter laugh!Names in  the bible do usually represent character. God has many names in the Old Testament that show us what He is like, but we have only really…

The Book of Esther Last week I shared a few thoughts about God ‘working his purpose out’ and that God was ‘always at work.’ This week I was reminded of the Book of Esther. It has an amazing story in it, full of drama and twists and turns, as well as clearly defined villains and heroes.  It’s one of only two books in the bible where God is not actually mentioned. However, God’s presence and deliverance of his people is clearly…

Grace Over the past few months there have been times where “Opportunities for Grace” have arisen at home or in the work place. In a world where there’s such polarisation of views, what a difference Grace would make. Grace appears in the bible over 120 times, depending on the version, and more so in the new testament than the old. Thinking about the word Grace what’s your interpretation? C S Lewis penned the words below….  “Never, in peace or war, commit your virtue or your happiness to the future. Happy…
