'These children are the Kingdom's pride and joy'

Let us celebrate publicly the joy of the gift of God to very brokenhearted parents. 

About four years ago a friend had told me about her daughter's trials with ectopic pregnancies and the heartbreak. Several weeks later the Lord prompted me to buy a pack of new baby vests, to pray over one and give to my friend's daughter, I didn't do it!
This was based on the story of Paul in Acts 19:12 

'so that even handkerchiefs and aprons that had touched him were taken to the sick, and their illnesses were cured and the evil spirits left them'.

Whose watching your backdoor?

Just had to add this new blog quickly to back up the previous blog ‘Safety and Security’ as an up to date testimony of an example of the power in the Blood of Jesus. A very dear friend with a young family having studied with Joy for Life several years ago had learnt the daily practice of claiming the protection of the Blood of Jesus. She went away for the long weekend and again prayed for God’s protection while the house was unoccupied.
On returning home they did not notice there was anything out of place, but a couple of days later when attempting to access their home through the back door from the outside realised that someone had tried hard to force their way into the house but had been unable to open the door!

The whole family had been able to have a good laugh and had shared a very big thanks and praise to the Living God who had actively protected their home when they were not there but when they had put their faith in the Blood of the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ.

Safety and Security!

Well I am so thrilled that I have something very special to share this time which is something for all of us to apply to our daily lives. In this day there are so many problems and dangers in our lives which can cause us to feel fearful, but our wonderful Father doesn’t want us to have any form of anxiety, Philippians 4:7

Well last week after shopping at the supermarket, we went home, packed away the shopping and sat down for a quiet coffee prior to going to the gym. ‘Where is my handbag? Oh I know I will have left it in the car!’ I stated. About two hours later on the way to the gym I looked round the car, no handbag!! 

David was determined that we would find it before going to the gym as he knew I would go over and over my morning activities which involved my handbag! After all my bag contains my ‘life’ - well, my phone on which there are all my contacts, my Bible, daily readings; then there is my purse with my cards and driving licence; free bus pass and library tickets!! No wonder men are starting to carry bags, how else could they have their valuables with them? So we drove back to the supermarket, me praying in the Spirit, feeling sick in my stomach and my mind going hundreds of miles per hour working out what to do with the problems that were going to result with the loss of my bag!

Let's move on?

It is so long since I have written! How much time do we have to read everybody’s blogs these days? If we have two minutes we read their Facebook entries if we have one minute we follow people on Twitter, but a blog – that’s too much information!

Being very verbal in my conversation I can never limit myself for Facebook and really don’t share my heart then, just snippets of meaningless information that keep people at a distance. I am going to try to do little and often on my blog then at least all our valuable family and friends will be more aware of what we are up to on a regular basis.

I stopped blogging as I was so down about ‘life’. The world looked a mess, our life looked a disaster, and friends’ lives looked turbulent; what is the point of it all?
