What do you say to that?

What do you say when one of your congregation tell you that they are so excited about giving their very first tithe this coming Sunday? It's so absolutely precious to see someone understand tithing and having such joy to give.

What do you say when that same person who is excited about giving their tithe is actually giving because they recently accepted Jesus and totally get what the tithe is all about? Many old Christians sit in church and make excuses not to tithe but this brand new Christian gets it and totally wants in!

What do you say when that same person who is excited about giving their tithe & totally gets it is sitting in a hospital bed but totally glowing with Jesus. You see this person came to church a few months ago because we were offering free sandwiches. Why did he need a free sandwich? Because he was living on the street - he was homeless. Why was he homeless? Because he was a heroine addict!

What can you possibly say to someone who only a few weeks earlier was fighting for his life because his leg was diseased from where he spent years injecting into heroine into it, he chats to you looking a bit tired from all the surgery then suddenly his face lights up and he gives you a big smile and says and says; "Are you coming to visit me on Sunday, because I can't wait to give my first real tithe?"

What do you say to that? Well I had to hold back the tears and ended up saying absolutely nothing.

Saved by grace, a new creation, on purpose for a purpose. I am free with a future and a hope!

I've considered deleting this blog many times but can't seem to let it go for some reason. Perhaps because it contains such an important part of my life and I'm hoping that somehow my 'scribblings' can inspire and help others going through some of the things I've been through. So, I continue to hold onto it for a little longer. Tonight, 31st December 2021, I reflect on not only the year that has passed but the many years before that too. I love to look back and reflect before plotting the way forwards into a new year. So I've pulled out all my journals and as I flip through the pages I am in awe of how far I have come.  Only today I found myself chatting with Jordan about the importance of not comparing ourselves with others but without past self, and as I look back I am amazed and how far I have come. I can't help but go back to that day. The day that I hit rock bottom. I had been a Christian for 10 years at that point and yet still found myself on the

Daniel Fast - Odours, Tiredness and Pains

These are some of what can occur during a fast but don't be alarmed, it is only worse case scenario.  Many people don't go through all of this so don't worry.  This info is merely so that you understand what is happening in your body and that you don't become concerned if some of these symptoms present themselves. Odours, tiredness, dizziness, headaches and other pains - these are some of the things that you will face during your fast.  As you continue to fast you body will begin to cleanse itself and eliminate toxins.  These toxins will come out of your body wherever they can which will mean that you might sweat more and your sweat will have a stronger smell than usual.  You breath will also be stronger than usual and so will you urine smell.  You may even get a funny taste in your mouth or feel that your tongue has a thick coat on it.  It sounds nasty, but for a while you will face unpleasant odours from your body, so brush well with a natural toothpaste (as you don
