The Give and Take of Mutual Relationships

Humans can be very self-centred, this is really highlighted within relationships whether with man or God. Yet relationships are or should be about reciprocity, mutual benefit or put another way give and take.

give and takeWe are OK when it comes to taking but not so much when it comes to giving. We find it much more easy to receive and very difficult to release.

I see this a lot in the online world, people are used to taking. There are free offers everywhere and we collect and hoard them, store them away but they hardly see the light of day if at all. They are like trophies or tools that we collect just in case we need them.

But when does taking stop being taking and start to become stealing (taking more than what was given/intended)? Continue reading The Give and Take of Mutual Relationships

Learning to Trust God

This is the latest blog post from my website…

Today’s post marks the last in this 5 part series on learning to trust God.  Let’s quickly re-cap the previous 4 parts.

In my first post on learning to trust God I shared part of my own journey and experience and, looked at how a faulty God schema can impact our ability to properly trust God.

In the second post, I began to look at the concept of truth and looked at 3 steps that helped me to learn to trust God more,

In my third post, I focused more on the concept of truth and how it is important in helping us trust God.

In my last post I looked at the difference between faith and trust and began to illustrate how both of these are vital to the life of a Believer.

In this week’s post I will be concluding by looking at the benefits and purpose or end goal of trusting God.  It’s actually an audio teaching which you can listen to by clicking on this link.

 

Does God get sad? … and more

I would like to share a few posts that have touched me recently, there is a brief summary of each one and a link to it too in case you want to read it.

  • Does God get sad?  Do you think there is anything at all that saddens God?  This post looks at something that we all do which might cause this to be so.
  • When the supernatural collides with the natural how does it make you feel?  I’m being challenged by the supernatural right now in my dreaming life and in my waking life, not bad stuff really but when the supernatural coincides with the natural it can sometimes cause your head to spin.  You can feel fear, anxiety, excitement, stress, joy, peace, humility, purpose, trust, faith and so much more .Have you had any recent close encounters with the supernatural which has caused you to reassess spiritual realities?

  • Widening the gap between illness and health.  Health and well-being enhancement is never far from my mind, partially as I’m in some pain from an osteopath appointment last night but partly because I Know how important health is especially after you’ve lost it.  I’ve been really encouraged to find people who are not allowing their illness/pain prevent them from otherwise being healthy which shows that no matter what state of health you are in you can still enhance it.
  • Last but not least, how has Yahushua (Yeshua/Jesus) changed your life?  Here is a great example of how love and grace are instruments of true transformation you might recognise this story :).

Using God’s Word to overcome limiting beliefs

I made this video based on something that God spoke into my life relating to self-limiting beliefs that were effecting my ability to live the way He wanted me to. I’m sharing it here in the hope that it may bless someone who is currently dealing with limiting beliefs and negative thoughts.

Experiencing healing when we overcome darkness

journey from darkness into God's healing light

This is the third post on the revelation of light and healing or healing light that God has been opening up to me, you can find the first two posts by clicking on the links below:

  1. God is Light
  2. Light in the Bible

This post steps away from the light for us to begin to understand light as a contrast to darkness and how this effects our overall well-being, this post arose out of my own experiences and I believe that I am called to share what I am learning with others so that we can all learn to walk more

Overcoming darkness (part 1)

Not only do we have to battle the darkness present in this world but we also have to battle against the internal darkness, many Believers think and feel that they are OK and that they don’t need healing and/or deliverance but this is a lie, a manifestation of arrogance and pride that empowers Satan to hold us bound and captive.  The Bible tells us the following:

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

1 John 1: 8-10

Nevertheless, I believe that our focus should not be on the fact that we do sin but on the fact that we do have One who can deliver us from our inherent sinful nature.

Free Christian well-being encouragement ebook

 Dearest Brother/Sister in Messiah,

I’m excited today to tell you that the new On the Road to Healing ebook is now available, it’s taken me a lot longer than I planned but it just goes to show that God is truly the Master planner not I, but… it is now finally completed and ready for download.

What is it all about?

Well, I know from personal experience that when you are dealing with chronic health problems or spiritual/psychological well-being concerns you can feel like you have no life and many times it’s so easy to give in to the fear that seems to be lurking in the shadows. There is only one thing that conquers fear and that is faith. But how do we acquire the faith to hold on, hope and believe in the midst of trials and troubles? And is faith really the key for us to unlock the blessings of life that God has promised for us?

This 110 page ebook is an amalgamation of the first and second editions of On the Road to Healing . The first edition is full of encouragement for those who have questions on the journey whilst the second focuses on the question of faith on our healing journey. Join everyday Believers just like you, who have contributed to this booklet by sharing their footsteps, their highs and lows, their triumphs, revelations and testimonies. You are bound to come out more encouraged, invigorated and equipped in your own walk by meeting with us on our road to healing.

Where does healing come from?

Man praying in the Light

Health, healing, and wholeness – I find it strange how different Christians react to these words.  For some these words cause a positive reaction to others negative, but whatever our stance we can not argue the fact that the Bible speaks about health, healing and wholeness.  But what is healing and where does it come from?

I know that there are still many people who visit this blog searching to understand why they suffer from Cramp Fasciculation Syndrome a neurological immune disorder where the immune system attacks the nervous system causing pain, cramping and spasming in the muscles surrounding the peripheral nerves.  It’s a horrible illness, but as I sat and looked over the stats for the last few days and saw that there didn’t seem to be a day when someone didn’t end up on my blog because of this disorder I realised something that I AM getting better!  This is what sparked off this post, I wanted to share my experiences of what I feel is healing me.
