Happy New Year (or should I say Prospero Año Nuevo?)

Happy New Year everyone – I can’t quite believe it’s 2012 already! I know everybody says this, but I’ve got a feeling it’s going to be a good one! I have a few resolutions for this year, which I thought… Continue Reading →

Merry Christmas!

It’s a bit late in the day now, but wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas! I hope everyone had a great day. Mine was surrounded by family; chatting, laughing and opening presents – and eating turkey of course! The only… Continue Reading →

I read this verse this morning and I loved it. Then I remembered I had the perfect picture to go with it, taken on Marsden Moor earlier this year.

My YouVersion Reading Plan

I started a plan to read the whole Bible in 6 months on 6th June. It’s coming up to 6th December now, and I’m sorry to say I am nowhere near finished. I’ve found it quite hard at times to… Continue Reading →

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matthew 6:34

This was the theme of the service at Church a few weeks ago, and I’ve been thinking about it a lot since. How cool is it that God cares so much about us that we are written on his hands?… Continue Reading →

Philippians 4:4

Part of this bible verse popped into my head on the way home from work tonight: Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace… Continue Reading →

Album of the Week – Love Shine Through by Tim Hughes

I bought this album at the start of the week – I didn’t realise it was released a couple of months ago. I love the last two Tim Hughes albums, and I can say that I’m definitely going to think… Continue Reading →

Bible in 6 months?

I sometimes have problems picking up the bible and reading it. Sometimes, I can open it and find exactly what I needed, and other times, I seem to lack the motivation. I’ve recently been reading a 100 day reading plan,… Continue Reading →

Just what I needed…

There have been a couple of times in the last week or so when I have heard/read something that was exactly what I needed. I have a couple of Bible reading plans, one is a 100 day reading plan in… Continue Reading →

Sometimes, the answer is no

On the day that Brad Paisley’s new album has been released, I wanted to share my favourite Brad Paisley song – No. I love the words to this song. It is very easy to think that God isn’t listening if… Continue Reading →

Happy Easter

Happy Easter to everyone! It’s hard to pick one quote to sum up the sacrifice that was made for us, but this is what I was reading this morning: John 21:29 Then Jesus told him, ‘Because you have seen me,… Continue Reading →

Isaiah 41:13

This is the perfect bible verse for when you are feeling a bit alone or maybe not quite sure what to do. A perfect reminder that God has a plan for us, and he will help us to get to… Continue Reading →

The simple ones are the best

Sometimes, the simple songs are the best ones, and the ones that resonate the most. I downloaded an album called ‘How Great Thou Art: Gospel Favorites Live from the Grand Ole Opry‘ from iTunes, and this song is on it… Continue Reading →

Philippians 4:6

My favourite bible verse is Philippians 4:13, but this one from earlier in the chapter is a very close second. It is very close in meaning to verse 13, which is probably why they are both my favourites. Do not… Continue Reading →

James 4:7

This quote was in Josh Hamilton’s book – Beyond Belief. It is a story of his descent into and recovery from drug addiction, and it was this quote that helped him to recover from the depths of crack addiction while… Continue Reading →

1 Samuel 16:7

I think this verse is particularly apt in our society, where so much value is placed on appearance. It may sound like a cliché to say “It’s what’s on the inside that counts”, but it’s so true. But the Lord said to… Continue Reading →

Philippians 4:13

This is one of my favourite bible verses, and one I often think about. I am considering getting it tattooed, but I need to decide where. “I can do all things through God who gives me strength.”

Merry Christmas

Luke 2:14 Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be… Continue Reading →

Go Jesus!

In light of it being Christmas soon, here’s a cool picture that someone posted on Twitter last year. Made me smile when I saw it, I wish I had the t-shirt.

Colours of Day

We used to sing this hymn in Primary school, and it was always one of my favourites. Looking at all the snow outside, the words ‘Light up the fire and let the flame burn’ sounded very comforting this morning! Colours… Continue Reading →
