TRANSFORMING THOUGHTS

'How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily?...' Psalm 13:2 (NKJV) Often the mind is like a darkroom where you develop all your negatives of fear and doubt. The 'darkroom' of the mind works in a similar way to a photographer's darkroom: the images are kept hidden from the light, time is spent soaking them in the right environment, and then they are displayed to become clearer and fully formed. Instead of choosing to dwell on the negatives in life, choose to release your mind to dream and imagine once again. To do this, you may find that you need to wrestle...

DON’T BE HEART-SICK (2)

'We also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope' Romans 5:3-4 (NKJV) Martin Luther King Jr. made this statement: 'If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you to go on in spite of it all. And so today I still have a dream'. If you are to keep your hopes and dreams alive, then you too must learn to wrestle with hope, and win the battle of courage. Don't let setbacks and delays destroy it; let hope arise, and believe that Yehovah...

DON’T BE HEART-SICK (1)

'Then you will know that I am Yehovah; those who hope in me will not be disappointed' Isaiah 49:23 (NIV) When asked for a scripture about hope, most people recite this verse: 'Hope deferred makes the heart sick' - but they rarely complete the verse! As a result, many people feel that hope is an unlikely expectation that will only result in pain and disappointment. There seems to be an unwritten proverb among believers, which is, 'If you do not hope too much, you will not be disappointed'. However, the meaning of this verse, and the gift of hope within it has been lost. The verse continues,...

90 DAYS IN THE SCRIPTURES

As followers of Yeshua, despite our positive confessions and aspirations,
many of us have and still do struggle to get into the Scriptures on a
regular and consistent basis. That can sometimes be because we try to sit
and read long passages, chapters or even books in one sitting. read more…

FROM FEAR TO FAITH

Early in 2020, news began to reach us that the coronavirus, or Covid 19, was beginning to spread rapidly from China, where it appeared to have begun, into mainland Europe. No one, certainly everyday laypeople, had any idea how much this would affect the world in the coming months, nor the fact that it would soon be classified as a pandemic. One of the first places it impacted was the northern region of Italy, where we had close and dear friends, pastors of a large church and leaders of a national ministry which reached many thousands of people across the whole of the country. We began to pray for them, and wrote to tell them the areas and issues for which we felt to pray. As we did so, I realised these same things would be what we would need to consider and seek the Lord over, particularly as, in the following few weeks we in the U.K. would be affected in similar ways. This book was birthed from those prayer points. read more…
