God's whispers

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In His great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire —may result in praise, glory and honour when Jesus Christ is revealed. Though you have not seen Him, you love Him; and even though you do not see Him now, you believe in Him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls."

Covid 19 - A mesaage of hope

As we travel through this very strange and challenging time along with the rest of the world, it can be difficult on many different levels. Listening to the media can be encouraging but equally we can become frightened, discouraged or depressed. About two evenings ago I found myself in a very low place. I was surrounded by a darkness that threatened to overwhelm me as I heard the continuing global statistics of death on our planet due to the virus. I had temporarily forgotten that in the shifting sand that is our world today God is our one constant. Once I turned back to Jesus I felt different, He stopped me drowning in despair and gave me hope for the future. “For I know the plans I have for you. . . ." (Jeremiah 29:11). I would like to share with you a poem that I accidently came across, although I now believe it was no accident.
God Bless

A conversation with my saviour
By Betty Kelly Lynch

You have only to ask and I will be listening,
Speak from your heart and I promise to hear,
Then walk away trusting, trusting completely-
The one who just loves you and is always near.

I am your guide, your friend and your saviour
I walk beside you lighting the way
You are my dream, my child, you’re my vision
The promise, the future of each bright new day.

I hear your voice in the still of the morning,
I hear you whisper sweet secrets to me,
I’ll follow your path never fearing or doubting-
That I will be safe whatever may be.

Cause I know you are my friend, my guide and my saviour,
I know you are beside me lighting my way,
I am your dream, your child, and your vision,
The promise the future of each bright new day.

Then give me your hand child and lets walk together
Down highways and byways  and over the seas,
Singing our song in the still of the morning,
Soothing and healing a world that’s not free.
