Welcome to June’s blog entry!
I’ve been meaning to squeeze one in before month end!
Uploading this blog tonight will be one of my positive moments of the day. I’m
not exactly elated after Portugal defeat today but it is well. Uruguay did well
and Portugal played well, however there’s always the next World Cup!
There’s so much to say.
But I am trying to keep these blogs short and sweet and
engaging for you, so I will jump right in!
I’ve recently come back from holiday in America (Atlanta)
and it was just mind-blowing! Spiritually, physically, relationally – just
amazing! It’s such a random place to go right? But that’s the thing with God – He’s
unpredictable! A friend of mine invited me to go with her and honestly I was
just looking forward to sightseeing, not knowing that God had so much more for
us in store.
Psalm 23:5 was the Word I heard from the Lord.
Psalm 23:5 New King James Version (NKJV)
“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.”
I thought I was going to America to just chill and do
nothing, not knowing that God wanted me to understand the importance of being
full of Him. This is so that I can go back to the vineyard He’s placed me (and
continue to serve Him more effectively). And on that note, a vineyard, doesn’t
have to be a Church, it can be a job, community or family or wherever you find
We did a lot, sightseeing, meeting people, EATING (my
goodness) and attended the Pinky Promise Conference (with Ps Heather Lindsay
and Ps Sarah Jakes Roberts). I thank God for their lives and for that ministry
– they will continue to soar!
I’d just like to share a few things from my quiet time
whilst I was out there. By quiet time, I mean spending alone time with the Lord.
Just thoughts to ponder and challenge. Here it goes:
· – Your identity is not in your ministry and in
what you do but it’s in Christ Jesus
· – He alone satisfies
· – Let go of the past. End of.
· – Weed out anything that doesn’t resemble to
character of Christ in you
· – Use your gifts and talents for edification of
· – You can’t do ministry without the Holy Spirit –
forget it – this work is not a ‘carnal’ work
· – Know that God walks with you
· – Develop that deep thirst and hunger for God
God desires to fill us up with His Spirit until our cup runs
So this is the takeaway and prayer point. It’s for God to
remove anything from us, that’s not of Him i.e. lust or greed or unforgiveness
for example so as to not hinder the Spirit from working in and through us.
This post is not to condemn but to set free.
We’re all on a journey J
