Being a Friend - Who has Purpose

To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven:   - Ecclesiastes 3:1 There is nothing more exhilarating than being around a person who has discovered their purpose in life.  It’s as if they are oozing life and freedom.  Even on their difficult days you can still feel the energy flowing from the core of their being.  Everything in this life has a time, a season and a purpose.  Once we realise that and begin to discover the meaning of life we will unleash something truly beautiful from our life. The Apostle Paul says in Roman 8:28 that, “we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”  Would you like a life where everything worked together for good?  It is possible and all that is required is that we are called according to God’s purpose.  You see, a life with purpose is great but a life according to God’s purposes comes with a guarantee.  The guarantee is that nothing is wasted.

Guard Your Heart

The past week has been challenging!  I feel like the devil has been doing his best work to discourage me.  I guess it is his job to steal, kill and destroy and he seems to take his job very seriously too!  The King's Daughters Conference is only 45 days away and all hell has broken loose in my little world.  From past experience I have learnt that the bigger the attack the bigger the fruit and I am convinced that this year's conference is going to be bearing some pretty big fruit.  My prayer is that you are one of the blessed recipients of what God has planned for this event and that there will be much fruit in your life.  This past Sunday I preached about the importance of guarding our hearts and I used one of my struggles as an illustration.  I hope that my words are an encouragement to you as you face opposition in what God has called you to do.  Listen to the message here and then remind yourself not to worry , just as I had to :) xxx

Nature's Way - Do Not Worry

Your body is designed to self heal. Every single cell in our body can repair itself if our immune system is functioning well. Even damaged hair and spotty skin should be able to heal automatically. Our body is an amazing and intricate design that should function absolutely perfectly. Sadly this is not the case for most people as we neglect our bodies and damage its natural ability to repair itself. We poison our system with chemicals and we poison our mind with worry.     Yes, worry and a healthy body is connected. Research by Dr Bruce Lipton PhD suggests that ‘95% of illness is caused by stress’. It has also been proven that stress can cause or worsen acne. A study was conducted in 2002 by the Stanford University School of Medicine involving 22 students suffering from acne. Their findings indicated that "Subjects who had the greatest increases in stress during examination periods also had the greatest exacerbation in acne severity."      Brittle, peeling

World Wide News #3

An exciting look at what can happen when a woman places her ordinary life into the hands of an extraordinary God!   " Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. " - Ephesians 3:20-21 ........................................................................................................................   King's Daughters Uganda  On 7th July King's Daughters Uganda had a very successful outreach meeting with the young girls at a Gaba Parents High School. Here is Caroline's feedback: " I was accompanied by 5 women who helped me to carryout the outreach and as a result 2 girls gave their lives to Christ. One of them is a Muslim. We talked about the LOVE of Christ and love for one another and to my amazement one girl said she had a misunderstanding with her friend but th

Being a Friend - Who is Honest

Proverbs 27:5-6 says, “Better is open rebuke than hidden love. Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful” What do you prefer - a friend who flatters you or a friend who tells you the truth even though it might hurt?  It is easy for someone to say nice things about you as it benefits them.  They know that you will like them because they are flattering you.  However, these may not be friends that you can trust.  It is the friends who are willing to risk losing your approval by telling you something that you may not want to hear.  It is these friends who will always be honest.  It is these friends who will say what needs to be said no matter what the cost.  These are the friends you should treasure.  They are honest.  Being on the receiving end of an honest conversation can be difficult.  You might not even want to see that friend ever again. Consider that what they had to say might have been very difficult and perhaps even painful for them too. 

Nature's Way - Toner

Toner Using a toner is an extra step in your skin care regime that will tighten up your pores and improve the texture of your skin.  A toner can also delay natural sagging of your skin which will keep you looking younger for longer.  Sadly, most chemical toners will cause harmful substances to build up in your skin which will damage your skin and cause premature ageing.  Most toners contain alcohol amongst other harmful ingredients. Using a toner will bring your skin's PH level back to normal, remove the leftover traces of dirt and make-up and will absorb the excess oil from the surface of your skin.   Nature’s Way Alternatives It’s so simple that you might have overlooked this one.  A splash of cool water onto your face is a great basic toner.  If the water is too cold it can constrict the blood flow, and can lead to burst capillaries.  Also, water that is too cold makes your face blotchy and irritated. It’s best to use slightly warm water to wash and slightly cooler wa

Being a Friend - Who is Loyal

My relatives have failed, and my close friends have forgotten me. - Job 19:14  We live in a disposable age where things are easily thrown away once they have served their purpose.  There are disposable cameras, disposable cutlery, disposable napkins and so much more.  Disposable means that something is intended to be used once and then thrown away.  Sadly, many friendships have become disposable too.  People use other people to get ahead in life and once they have served their purpose the supposed friend moves on to the next person.  Few people build friendships with the intention of making them last.  Not many people value friendships through thick and thin.  Many people enjoy their friendships while things are good but dispose of them as soon as they become an inconvenience.  Loyalty is a rare and precious quality in a friend these days.  As Billy Ocean once sung, “When the going gets tough the tough get going”.     It’s not only in this day and age that friendships are flaky;
