I have been toying with this word for a little while, as it’s not really something that I have done on my blog before now, but I really sense that some people are feeling “stuck” in life. Stuck in a job that no longer fulfils you. Stuck with your finances. Stuck in circumstances that you feel beyond your control but I see that God has been calling you. I hear the words “move forward”; that you should press into Him and God has been asking you to do this for a while but fear is holding you back, in embracing your next step.

If that is you…then I want to encourage you.

God knew the path you would take long before you were even born. He planned and created you for a purpose in this World and therefore we need to be stepping into all that God has for us. God never said it would be easy but He does say that a life lived by faith is a much lighter yoke and a much easier burden to carry than one where we are striving.

Isaiah 43:18-19 says “Do not remember the things that have happened before. Do not think about the things of the past. See, I will do a new thing. It will begin happening now. Will you not know about it? I will even make a road in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.” Stop looking at yesterday and focus on today or even tomorrow. You will see the path clearly that God wants you to take – so move forward…begin the adventure of what God has been showing you and take that step of faith! You might just realise, that this is the moment for which you were created.

Be blessed xx

There is power in the name of Jesus and no-one can deny His goodness when people see God working in difficult circumstances, in our lives.

It is not about making others believe in Christ but allowing yourself to become a “living sacrifice” (Romans 12:1) – by speaking about what God has done for you and being who God created you to be. Personal testimony is powerful because no one can deny, who you have become. 

When you really find God – He can’t be denied; because you will find Him as a loving and graceful Father, not a harsh critique. He protects and guides you, rather than leaving you alone. God wants you to prosper in everything that, He wants you to do and not struggle in your life. 

The Lord is good and when you discover who God truly is – you want more; simply because Gods love really does change everything. 

In Christianity, we hear the word “faith” a lot…we need more faith…all you need is a little faith…and so on, but what happens if you struggle to lead a life of faithfulness? 

Hebrews 11 teaches me, that faith is more than a belief system but it is an assurance of God’s existence; confidence in his ability to bring about change in this world through us and certainty that his promises will be fulfilled. The Bible therefore allows me to read about the things that has happened, through faith in God.

When I first became a Christian; I used to pray for things like “a parking space when I was running late” or I’d pray that I would “find my keys” that had disappeared (I’m not saying that this is wrong) but now, it’s become a desire to have faith that all these amazing Men, (mentioned in Hebrews 11) had. A faith where they lived and died, still believing for things, they did not receive.

Faith sometimes doesn’t make sense, but to me, that’s the point…it’s having a belief or a “confidence in what we do not see”. Faith is stepping out into the unknown to achieve something that God has for us because God’s goal is not to change our circumstances – it is to change us. To renew our minds so that we start to dream God-sized dreams. Dreams to change the World and bring His children back to Christ.

When we take out, our own rationale in situations we are going through, and turn to God, something beautiful happens because fear has no power in our lives – unless we allow it in – and the scripture in 2 Timothy 1:7, reminds me that God gave me a spirit of love, power and sound mind.

So many times, I have played current situations over and over in my mind. By nature, we can sometimes think about the “what ifs” but God has called us to live faithfully and prayerfully…this is so we learn to trust in His goodness and His plan and purpose for our lives.

When I feel fearful in my life now, I realise that I am doing things in my own strength – I haven’t let go of the situation. 

However, when God is in control of my life…When I am praying and seeking His will – I have abundant peace because He frees me from the fear of the unknown.

Turn to God today, let go of that situation that’s been holding you back and walk in the freedom, that Jesus died for.

I am in constant awe of Gods creation and the beauty it possesses. From the individualism of snowflakes; the tides being pulled by the moon; bumblebees being able to fly and even the beauty of every sunset.
Humanity is in a constant process of discovery. I love it when scientists make breakthroughs, that allow us to broaden our minds, to the wonders of the Universe. 

I remember (as an unbeliever) having the most crazy questions that “had” to be answered before I could even entertain the thought of a God and yet one morning, I got up early to drive and watch the sunrise. 

The graceful ascend of the sun, over the calmness of the coastline; together with the systematic sound of the waves crashing on the rocks and shore…made me ponder.

Scientifically, it states that life can only come from pre-existing life, so it got to the point that the only question I was asking (whilst watching the sunrise) – was whether I believed in a creator? Was it still easy for me to try and rationalise something, that made no logical sense anymore?

I understand now (reading Romans 1:20) that God has made the World beautiful, in order that we are drawn to making new discoveries. From this – like me – I began to question is there more to life than this? 

The answer was mind-blowing, when my “eyes were finally opened” and I found God.

If I look back to who I was when I accepted Christ into my life…I was rude, disrespectful, I swore ALOT, drank way too much, thought that Women were commodities and Men were scum (and that’s just off the top of my head).

In truth…I was lost, broken, hurt and rejected, so I took it out on everyone around me.

Jesus accepted me as I was; because He saw who I was called to be, rather than what I saw in the mirror and He spoke to that.

We can still look at other people and see them as “less”, than what society determines as “acceptable” but we were ALL created in the image of God and therefore anything less than righteous is below what God had intended for us anyway.

Don’t look at anyone and judge them by a Worldly moral code that is corrupt in it’s thinking (no matter where you are in this World) but instead love everyone as God loves us – pure and with no agenda.

Then, we become the light in this dark World.

There is so much pain in this World….Murder…Rape…Abuse…Starvation…to name a few things but this was not how God intended the World to be. I have heard Christian’s blame “Adam and Eve”; along with unbelievers say, “if God was real, then He would…” but the simple fact remains, that we all have a choice to make the right decision (whether we know Jesus or not) as there is a moral code in life – which most follow.

We were all predestined to be with God in Heaven. We were all fearfully and wonderfully made and God knew us before we were even born. He sent Jesus to be our Lord and Saviour and God loves each and everyone of us, that He doesn’t want anyone to perish. 

I dream, of the World that God created and pray, that “His Kingdom come, His will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven” – imagine if every Christian prayed for this? Imagine if the great commission was fulfilled with everyone believing that Jesus died and rose again? Imagine if God turned to you and said “well done, good and faithful servant”.

So why is everyone important?

Because God loves them


We are all on the path of “life” together. Some of us “seem” to have it all figured out; whilst others struggle to make day-by-day choices.

The enemy never tells us the disadvantages of sin and yet we know that he “comes to steal, kill and destroy” (John 10:10). If you look at Satan’s conversation with Eve; he was encouraging her to sin by telling her the benefits while denying its consequences (Genesis 3:4-5). 

Proverbs repeats time after time that wisdom is knowledge with understanding; so if we strip that back – knowledge is nothing more than raw facts but with understanding, comes wisdom and that is the ability to understand things, as God sees them.

Proverbs also tells us (and repeats it) that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (1:7; 9:10). Believers are not to be scared of God, as we have His promise that nothing can separate us from His love (Romans 8:38-39). We have His promise that He will never leave us or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). However, fearing God means having such a reverence for Him that it has a great impact on the way we live our lives. The fear of God is respecting Him, obeying Him and worshipping Him as Yahweh. (I know that I want to please Him because of who He is – the creator of the Universe!!)

So the next time there is a decision to make…take it to God and bring it up against His Word, because I don’t think anyone would of thought that a bite of an apple, could bring so much devastation. If Satan can deceive Adam and Eve, who had never known “sin” or heartache from this World; how much easier is it for Satan to lead us away from God?
