Lagging behind

The clocks have moved forward today and I am lagging behind seriously. A good day though and I am happy to regroup and restart as always.
The Lord is good to His own as always.
Thank You, Father for today, Amen.

I do not come to you by chance

This is the title of a book by a friend of mine, Nigerian by birth and I have just finished reading it. A very thought-provoking novel indeed as it asks hard questions that one might not really have answers to currently. 

I am so proud of my friend and hopes she will write again since this novel is so good and does not lose its pace anywhere in the book.

And it encourages me to think upon a particular verse and also to remember that indeed it is not by power or by might, but by the Spirit that great things will be achieved.
I can all things through Christ who strengthens me and without Him, I am nothing.
Lord, in Your mercy, hear my prayer, Amen

More baby steps

Am I gradually getting the hang of being disciplined? I sure hope so since I have been making an effort and doing my best to hang in there even when I fall.
Thank You, Lord for today and for the story behind the God channel. Very inspirational indeed.
I am grateful for Your grace and Your mercy always, Father, Amen.

Weekend report

A lovely day yesterday spent in a shopping centre with my own thoughts. Found some bargains as expected ( and I mean bargains) and also some time to think through a few things. Today has also been good. Mother's day out with the kids at a Chinese restaurant. I wanted to rest but had a phone call that went on for a while.

Well, I have done a bit of writing this evening though so can't complain. Now to get ready for the coming week. Lord, in Your mercy, help me listen, Amen.

A good day today

It has been a good day because I have absorbed a lesson for myself; I am trying to run before I can walk with the writing and I must be patient and wait upon the Lord for His appointed time. In the meantime I am to wait on Him, seek Him and do what I can do with my own human strength while waiting upon Him. And He has made more than enough provision for me to do that; I must make use of all the material I have got stacked on my heaving shelves and give myself opportunities to begin with the small things.

And today I rejoice with my friend who has just won a major award. I rejoice because the Lord showed this breakthrough to me years back and it is humbling to share in the success of a writer that I know personally.

Lord, You are so good to Your own. Help me keep up with these baby steps.
Thank You, Lord for Your favour and Your mercy, Amen.

Swirling thoughts

An interesting few days it has been so far. Very interesting indeed. Lots of swirling thoughts in my head and lots of frantic and desperate prayers sent up to the Lord. Father, forgive me for being so needy but who else can I go to?
Lord, in Your mercy, hear my prayer and calm my swirling thoughts, please, Amen.

Dreaming on...

I have been absent for a while because our Internet connection at home keeps playing up and now that I am a working woman, it is harder to get to the library to post anything. Ah well, here I am again. Thinking today about how I so want to work for myself and not for anyone else. I love my job very much and find it immensely satisfying but for practical reasons I will have to move on at one point or the other. And how lovely it would be if I could earn an income from the writing as well. Hmmm, one can dream and keep praying and doing her best to make progress. 
God is good. I believe I will be back again this evening.
