I really need to exercise my faith in all areas of my life. I have allowed myself to get swayed by negative things lately and have gotten myself worked up over lots of things. Lord, forgive me. If I claim to have faith, why am I not acting on it then? It means my faith is not developed enough and I need to do something about it.
Tomorrow is another day and by grace, there will be the wisdom to do what needs doing and to tackle what needs tackling and to pray about what needs prayer.
Today is the day that the Lord has made and I have allowed it to degenerate this evening; I will do better tomorrow to rejoice despite what I hear or see. 
Thank You, Father, Amen.

Heart matters

No one likes being taken for granted or for a fool. No one likes to be cheated or deceived; and I have heard a few tales lately about men deceiving  women and I am not too sure whether it is the law of attraction working here or my eyes suddenly being opened to the world around me; or just simply that a lot of men are out to deceive and should not be trusted.

I don't know. What I know for sure though is that a woman has to be financially independent before marriage, during marriage and if things should  go wrong, after marriage. I have become a bit hardened to the promises of men and now put my whole trust in God instead. Because no one person can fully satisfy all your deepest needs .

I am not at all advocating lying in any relationship; but just love with both head and heart. When the latter is broken, the former will help you recover and make wise decisions to allow you to fall in love again. Hopefully with someone more trustworthy.

It is well, Lord. Please bring healing to my friends who find themselves in very challenging circumstances right now, Amen.

Onwards I go....

A good friend wrote to encourage me about my writing after reading my blog entry expressings doubts about the Friday column; her note cheered me up some more and she thought I was entering a second phase in my writing. I sincerely hope so.
What I know for sure is that my writing is tied in very much to my faith so the more time I am spending meditating in the Word of God, the easier the writing is and the better the flow. Of course it doesn't hurt at all to do some writing each day, be it in the form of this blog or in my journal or just putting down ideas.
So onwards I press and as another friend has declared, 2009 is my year to develop wings and really gather some momentum for the escape velocity needed to break out of my comfort zone.
May it be done to me according to the Word of the Lord to me, Amen.

A prayer for today.

Thank You, Father that I am an excellent writer and that each time I sit down to write, You pour out Your wisdom to me, to be creative and to express Your beauty and Your awesome nature.
Thank You for all Your mercies and Your kindness and all Your love in the Name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.

The prayer for today

Thank You, Father!

I am at the South Ruislip library and an amazing thing has happened to me. I have drafted a short story of almost 1700 words which for the first time I think is quite publishable. I will revise it and revise it over and over so I can send it out.
This is amazing, Father and I thank You for it in Jesus' Name. How amazing.
Lord, thank You and thank You for what writing I have done today. Especially after the way I was feeling this morning.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.

The Friday column

For a few weeks now, I have been wondering whether to stop sending out the Friday column or plod on with it.  I have grown past responses from readers, but at the same time I am quite aware of the fact that very few people respond to my thoughts these days and that has set me thinking. Something to pray about, surely. 

 On another note: what I am grateful for today is that I have finally surrendered to concentrating on the writing for now. All teaching, apart from actual teaching ( for pocket money) and reading my own material is suspended for now. That is not to say I  have lost interest in it in any way or form, but I have to focus on the writing and see what comes out of it. It has been over a year since I received a powerful word about it and I have been distracted long enough . Lord, I receive Your will for my life.

Thank You, Father for Your patience with me, Amen. And please speak to me about the Friday column too. Thank You.

Thanking the Father

I have been very tired today but also very happy and grateful for a friend and mentor who keeps me in check and encourages me with the Bible so much.
It is truly a divine connection between the two of us and I cherish it so much because of how much I have learnt and how much I have grown since knowing her.
Friends are indeed a gift from God.
Thank You, Father for my friend.
