Thought for the DayToday I’ve been thinking about how we (humans) complicate things. Sometimes so much so that confusion reigns in situations that should be easy and simple.Nothing else in nature makes things so complicated, life to many animals seem so much less complicated. My thoughts turn to the scripture in Matthew, where we are told not to worry about anything, and then it’s compared to the ...  Read More

Thought for the DayStanley, our 6 year old son, enjoys watching programs hosted by Steve Backshall - an English explorer and animal expert. Tonight we watched an episode where he and a team of experts explored part of the jungle in South America - apparently where no humans had explored before.As they made their way down a meandering river in canoes, they came across some spectacular pieces of nat...  Read More

Thought for the DayWe love a game in our house, whether that be a board game, gaming on devices or old fashioned fun games like hide & seek (yes, both Steve and I still play it with the kids!)One of today’s games was ‘Game Of Life’ and as we set off across the board we all ended at the same place but our ‘lives’ had all turned out very differently. Sophie and I had far to many children, our cars w...  Read More

Thought for the DaySinging and worshipping is one of my favourite things, I love the music and I love to lift my hands to honour my Heavenly Father. I miss corporate worship so much, and I long for the day that we can all gather and worship together again - to hear us all singing together again, what an amazing moment that will be.At the moment, this song raises my hands and voice like no other - ...  Read More

Thought For The DayI've spent some time today studying this scripture, as I'm using it on Sunday in my sermon.I love this version... why not take a moment now to read it through, slowly and carefully - read and absorb each line, each word... and then tune in on Sunday to find out my thoughts!The Way of LoveIf I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the crea...  Read More

Thought for the DayWhat’s your favourite colour? What’s your favourite meal? What do you like to do in your spare time? I bet your answers are different to mine!But don’t you love that? That God made us all completely unique, making all of our senses get exited about different things and our personalities making us unique to us. Sometimes we like the same, sometimes we don’t! But that’s okay becau...  Read More

Thought for the DayYou know it’s okay to need rest? Even God rested after he had made the world, and I believe that He was setting an example to us, that we also need to take time to rest and not work continuously.We can so easily get exhausted, in all ways, not just physically - mentally too, but why do we feel guilty when we stop and take some time for ourselves? Sitting down for five minutes to...  Read More

Thought for the DayI’ve been thinking today how blessed we are to have access to so much food, and so much of it from right across the world. From amazing spices to weird but delicious fruits and vegetables, we really do have so much to choose from.And like our physical food, we also have so much access to give us spiritual food. At the touch of a button we can research the bible and it’s commenta...  Read More

Thought for the dayAfter Pastor Steve read Hebrews 12:2 this morning where we are encouraged to fix our eyes on Jesus, the song ‘Turn your eyes on Jesus’ has been replaying in my spirit over and over. And after I searched the lyrics (to make sure I had been singing it correctly) I found a whole song with more verses that I didn’t know it had!‘O soul are you weary and troubledNo light in the darkne...  Read More

Thought for the DayKindness, speaking Jesus, showing love. What have you done today to shine Jesus into someone’s life?Maybe a phone call or a text, smiling as you do your shopping or giving a helping hand if you see someone struggling. All these things, and many more like them, can all pass us by without a thought, but today I ask you - where have you shown kindness today?As our societies are fac...  Read More
