Are you looking up or down?

“As long as you are proud you cannot know God. A proud man is always looking down on things and people: and, of course, as long as you are looking down, you cannot see something that is above you.”

C.S. Lewis

Appreciate what you have

Why do we first need to lose what we have before we realise how much it actually meant to us?

My simple prayer for today is that I will really appreciate what I have, whilst I still have it.

God’s plans and promises

” ‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord.  ‘They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me. I will be found by you,’ says the Lord. ‘I will end your captivity and restore your fortunes. ‘ ”

Jeremiah 29:11-14a
NLT

God at work

“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.”

Romans 8:28
NLT

Joy amongst the angels

“Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins and loses one. Won’t she light a lamp and sweep the entire house and search carefully until she finds it? And when she finds it, she will call in her friends and neighbors and say, ‘Rejoice with me because I have found my lost coin.’ In the same way, there is joy in the presence of God’s angels when even one sinner repents.”

Luke 15:8-10
NLT

Through the eyes of my 5-year old…

A week ago, after saying a prayer with my 5-year old son, he asked me: “Daddy, how many people have you told about Jesus?” It took me totally by surprise, and I grappled to find an appropriate response. Afterwards, I realised two things:

1) I am not doing enough to tell (and show) people about Jesus, and his role in my life.

2) Imagine the day of judgement, and God, Creator of all (not a 5-year old), asking you: “What have you done for Me?”

My simple prayer for today is inspired by my eldest son:

“God, help me to do more for You. Help me to be a witness to You in the small things I do every day. Help me to talk about You when I get the chance. In the name of Jesus. Amen.”

Praise the Lord!

“Praise the Lord, all you nations.

Praise him, all you people of the earth.

For he loves us with unfailing love:

the Lord’s faithfulness endures forever.

Praise the Lord!”

Psalm 117:1-2
