    SATURDAY 19 SEPTEMBER

     Morning All. Luke 15:10 “In the same way, I tell you, the angels of God rejoice over one sinner who repents.”

    We have always lived in a news-saturated culture....from the initial passing on news to people orally to newspapers, to telephone, to radio and television ....and of course with new technology - social media !! It seems over the last few months we have been bombarded with “Breaking News” and “Daily Briefings” invading our daily lives. Here’s the thing......if you were a reporter and told by your editor to go and find the best news scoop you could find ...I think there is no news scoop bigger than the story of God’s relationship and interaction in the lives of His children, and the growth of His church, even in these times when we hear talk about church decline!! If only one of His children responds to His love then that’s growth. A hundred years from now, today’s headlines may not be fully forgotten but they will not be prominent. However if heaven has a newsroom, the Chief Editor whose position would never be replaced - would make sure that no answered prayer, no sacrifice, and no new beginning is ever forgotten. In fact, they will be breaking news headlines … every single one of them. So let me ask you: Are you in Heaven’s Headlines?

    What newsworthy thing has God done for you today? Why not “broadcast it” so others can benefit from your story and rejoice with you… Your story is always newsworthy in God’s eyes.

    God loves you - No Matter What

    PRAYER: Lord God thank You for loving and accepting me as much as You do, that’s great news for me today and always, so thank You.

    Amen

    CHORUS:

    Tell out, my soul, the greatness of the Lord!

    Unnumbered blessings give my spirit voice;

    Tender to me the promise of his word;

    In God my Saviour shall my heart rejoice.

    Tell out, my soul, the greatness of his name!

    Make known his might, the deeds his arm has done;

    His mercy sure, from age to age the same;

    His holy name, the Lord, the mighty One.

    Tell out, my soul, the greatness of his might!

    Powers and dominions lay their glory by;

    Proud hearts and stubborn wills are put to flight,

    The hungry fed, the humble lifted high.

    Tell out, my soul, the glories of his word!

    Firm is his promise, and his mercy sure.

    Tell out, my soul, the greatness of the Lord

    To children's children and forever more!

  • FRIDAY 18 SEPTEMBER

    FRIDAY 18 SEPTEMBER

    Morning All. Hebrews 3:13b you must help and encourage one another every day, as long as it is still called “Today”
    I have a question for you - yes again!!
    If you could have back one hour of your past, which would it be? Think about it for a minute or two before answering. I tried this as well and found it hard ( but did come up with a answer). However when I was contemplating the question I tried to think ‘outside the box’ for instance - would it be an hour of missed opportunity? A great celebration? A personal encounter ....back stage pass to favourite celebrity? A great achievement/accomplishment? I am sure all our answers will vary. Now that you are weary and reached a conclusion after changing your mind several times - which I know you would have - I have a secret to share.....are you ready? Instead of spending time in the past I believe that God wants us to recognise the beauty and blessed opportunities we have in the present. I think He wants us to focus on what He is doing in our lives today so that we can embrace the blessings and the joy of the moment in His presence. Why? well because these present moments form the basis for you best hours yet to come. The best is yet to be!

    God loves you - No Matter What

    PRAYER: Heavenly Father, at this moment, right now, I rest in Your presence and Your loving blessings, 

    Amen

    CHORUS: MP 581
    River, wash over me,
    cleanse me and make me new;
    bathe me, refresh me, and fill me anew-
    river, wash over me.

    Spirit, watch over me,
    lead me to Jesus’ feet;
    cause me to worship and fill me anew-
    Spirit, watch over me.

    Jesus, rule over me,
    reign over all my heart;
    teach me to praise You and fill me anew-
    Jesus, rule over me.

  • THURSDAY 17 SEPTEMBER

    THURSDAY 17 SEPTEMBER

     Morning All. Many times in scripture we are told not to be afraid that God is our refuge and strength and the promises of Jesus tells us to rest in Him and trust Him. So this morning I thought I would write a letter to Jesus on your behalf then if you want to add a PS at the end then you can.
    Dear Jesus, It’s us, your children. You know we pray to You with words or silence from our hearts and minds. But today we thought we would write a letter to You that we can all share in, no need to write back we know how busy You are. We know You are very much aware of the situation we are having to deal with here on earth, and to be honest it’s not great, it’s causing a lot of pain, anxiety, worry and ill-feeling and seems at times the whole situation is spiralling out of control with what feels like constant changes. However, we want to take time to say thanks to You because You never change. Every promise You have made, we know You will keep. Whatever happens, no matter how disturbing, Your love will see us through. And because You are always with us we should not be afraid, but we often are Lord. So, we wanted to be honest about that and ask You that when the world seems dark, You give us light. To be our strength in weakness and hope in despair because today’s world can be a frightening place. Thank You for reading this letter.
    With Love from your child.
    P.S...............................

    CHORUS: old favourite
    This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.
    This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.
    This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.
    Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.
