After a 4 week series on Ruth at my church I decided that I'd post something I learnt out of the series and that was this right here >>> We need to cling to God in the hard times, we need to stop looking back at the past and what has happened, need to stop going back to what is familiar and keep pressing forward in God, we need to let God do in us what he needs to to turn us into the person we should have always been.
Ruth teaches us that God places people in our lives for us to walk along side, pray with and for and to help us along the way to what God has for us.
Just like Ruth did with Naomi and Naomi lead her to Boaz making her the great grandmother of king David and in Jesus bloodline.
Jesus is the same that it talks about in the bible is still around today and everything you read about in the bible that he did he is still doing now, he still heals it makes me sad when I hear people say it won't happen today because it was only for the bible times of course it is for today Jesus came to heal all those who need healing and it wasn't just for those in the bible times but for those around now, he loves us so much and he wants us all to be completely whole that includes physically whole, spiritually whole, mentally and emotionally whole. So give it all to him and let him do what he needs to do in you and for you. He will mend it and put it all back completely whole.

As international women's day comes to an end here in the UK, I want to take a moment to appreciate the women that God has put into my life to do life with, to work along side and fight side by side with. The awesome warrior women that I get to do life with, that I thank God for and love. Some have been in my life from the moment I was born, the rest came over the years and some came in the last few months but I am thankful for each and everyone one of them plus a whole lot of others. Thank you ladies for all you do and have done for me, for listening to God and following his call and for being by my side and doing life with me.
You are all such beauties and I thank God for sending me you.
The next time you think there's no way remember that when the Israelites thought they where trapped by the dead sea and no way to get away from the Egyptians God then parted the sea and made a way for them to cross, totally not what the expected to happen but it did and just like he made a way for them he will for you as well. It might not always be in the way we expect but he will do it as he always comes through for us and has has the perfect plan and will always good you through.

So often we think that what we have done has blown it for us with God, however what we need to remember is that if we come humbly to God and are truly sorry for whatever we have done to blow it that he will forgive us and set is back on the right path to where we are suppose to be, it might take a little longer to get their but God will always take is to all he has for us. #godfightsforyou#godlovesyou#healwaysforgives#forgivinggod
This is so true, the last three weeks I have been doing a bible course which is taking from the begging to the end of the bible, telling us the history of it, why things happened and helping us to understand the connections from the old to the new, the first Adam to the new and last Adam (Jesus) and how it all fits together. Every week it gives us scriptures to read that gives us an outline of what we will be learning the week after in our group and even though I have read the passages loads of times, was told them as stories growing up and have studied a few of them in my personal quiet times and in bible studies over the years things are still jumping out at me, I am constantly being astonished by things that I have read and that has popped out at me that I had missed before. Each time I read God's word something new appears to me, God teaches me something different every time and I love it, I re read and relive the bible and it a passages time and time again and each time I learn something new, I get a deeper understanding and something new grabs me and molds me and plants me deeper in my faith. It's a never ending book of life seeing God's love, how he wants the best for us even though we mess up time and time again and how he always comes through with what he says and his promises , despite us turning away, failing, not listening, being stubborn he continually waits for us, picks us up, cleans us up, points us in the right direction and comes through for us.
The joy found in God is completely different to the Joy the world talks about, the Joy God gives is a joy deep down inside of you that is always around, that you still have even when the storms of life hit you, the world's meaning of joy is basically a bigger version of happiness and it changes when with the circumstances that your in, God's Joy is continuous and the knowledge of knowing that no matter what he will always be with you.
Let God full you with his Joy and peace will follow. The knowledge that you have someone fighting for you at all times in every season is where is what brings and keeps the Joy with you.
