Saying grace

How many of us still say grace at mealtimes?

For years, it never crossed my mind to say grace because I wasn’t bought up in a Christian home and very few people we knew regularly did it, so it was for special occasions only – like bringing out your best crockery!

Then I read through the Bible in one year, and I noticed that Jesus gave thanks at mealtimes.

Like all prayers, it can get repetitive or even mundane.

Our daughter likes to say grace as quickly as she can, to start shovelling in her food but it should be more than that.

God has blessed us abundantly in more ways than we can imagine and although we may look at our circumstances and think differently, we should have grateful hearts.

Therefore, let’s be sincerely thankful for the food on our table.

Let’s thank God for His provision and protection on a daily basis.

Let’s thank God for friends, family, and loved ones.

But most of all, let’s remember to thank God for who He is and what He’s done, and continues to do.

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
