The Holy Spirit on Kindle

Since I had a near death experience in January 2013, the Holy Spirit has been very close to me. And when God spoke to me, He told me that it was very important that I write this book – which 185 pages and 51,000 words later – I have done!
 
If you have a kindle I warmly invite you to take a look at:-
 
 
for further information and to purchase a copy for only £3.77 which you may then download onto your computer.
 
May our Father God bless you mightily in everything you say and in everything you do
Peace be unto you

Let All The World In Every Corner Sing

As a young man, George Herbert did not give much thought to God. But when he was thirty-six, he left the political rat race of the court of Kig James 1 to become the rector of a country parish near Salisbury.

One of Herbert’s great joys was music. Twice a week he would walk into Salisbury to play and sing with his friends at the Cathedral.

One day he stopped on the way to help a man whose horse had collapsed in the mud under its load. The group of friends in Salisbury were surprised when Herbert, usually so smart and clean, arrived ‘so soiled and discomposed’. One said that he had disparaged himself by so dirty employment.

Herbert replied that the thought of what he had done would be music to him at midnight – and that the omission of it would have made discord in his conscience. ‘I am bound to practise what I pray for…..and I praise God for this occasion. Come, let’s tune our instruments.!’

And, that very same night, Herbert wrote this well known, and much loved, hymn:-

Let all the world in every corner sinh,
My God and King!
The heavens are not too high,
His praise may thither fly;
The earth is not too low,
His praises there may grow.
Let all the world in every corner sing,
My God and King!

Let all the world in every corner sing,
My God and King!
The church with psalms must shout,
No door can keep them out;
But above all, the heart
Must bear the longest part,
Let all the world in every corner sing,
My God and King!.

Do You Make Time To Pray Within Your Busy Daily Schedule?

I never tire of my young nephews. They pay the greatest attention to you and then mimic all that you do. This can be either flattering or embarrassing if what they mimic places you in a bad light. They copy the good and the bad indiscriminately.

Jesus, although both human and divine, needed to seek out times of prayer alone with God. He ministered generously and widely on a daily basis throughout an amazing three years, yet recognised his own need to pull aside and make space to be alone with his heavenly Father. It therefore comes as no surprise that we will constantly fail to find sufficient grace to continue in God’s ways, if we fail to draw aside and take some time with God.

Prayer can so often be reduced to little more than the swift recitation of a shopping list of requests laid at Jesus’ feet in the hope and expectation that God will do something constructive in response.

Many of these listed items are forgotten as soon as they have been presented. Once listed, we so often rise to return to the hurly-burly of life, having taken no time to allow God to speak to us and refresh us with his spirit.

There is no surprise here since the word ‘pray’ does mean to entreat or earnestly ask for. Yet, there are other aspects of prayer when we are to bring ourselves before God simply to sit and gaze upon his lovely countenance. This practice is increasingly difficult in a world in which we’re surrounded by distractions. However, without finding that space and taking that time, we will become consistently absorbed with these distractions and lose sight of God and lose touch with his peace.

Yet, as we wait upon God, we become self-aware and reflect upon those things we have done well and those things where perhaps we have let God down. We are invited by God to make a judgement about how we might better represent ourselves as his servants going forward.

If We Claim To Love Our Neighbour

These are the words of a new inspirational and thought provoking hymn by Andrew Pratt:-

If we claim to love our neighbour
while the hungry queue for food,
are we prey to self deception?
Is perception quite so crude?
If we sit beside our neighbours,
begging for the things they need,
we might share their own injustice
in a world that thrives on greed.

If we punish those with nothing,
blaming them for where they stand,
is this love of friend or neighbour,
do we still not understand?
Love of neighbour is not easy,
cuts us till we feel the pain,
sharing hurt that they are feeling
till they find new life again.

Love of neighbour sets us squarely
in the place where they now sit,
till the richness God has given
builds a pearl around the grit;
till each person shares the comfort
of the love of which we preach,
till we live as fact the Gospel:
none can be beyond love’s reach.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

These words are oh so very relevant in these days of harsh austerity.

Here in the UK it is only three weeks away from our general election.

Will the newly elected Government – whoever is Prime Minister – make the changes necessary to enable the poorest families to be taken out of poverty?

What the Government need to remember is that man-made laws are not always God-made laws!
