    How Is Your Heart?

    Power Thought: “The Heart is the mainspring” – Smith Wigglesworth

    The heart is the centre of your life. It is made up of your thoughts, emotions and will. It is where you direct your life and all the affairs of life. The Bible tells us to protect and nurture our heart with tender loving care. In the same way you have to look after the natural heart as the place where blood is pumped to all the different parts of the body and gives life and strength to your body so it is with your soul heart. It is where your passions, creativity and all your life flows from. It is a very valuable place.

    Invest In Your #1 Relationship

    Power Thought

    Do you still love Jesus and feel the same way as the day you met Him?

    Meditate On

    Nevertheless, I have this against you, that you have left your first love.

    Revelation 2:4 NKJV

    Do you remember the day you fell in love with Jesus? The day your heart and your life melted into His hands?  Pause and reflect on this.

    Let Go

    Power Thought

    “I am learning to love the sound of my feet walking away from things not meant for me”

    Meditate On

    As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.

    Proverbs 27:17 NKJV

    I have realised that energy is contagious and so is attitude. When somebody is full of energy and life as you spend time with them you are drawn into their mood and ambience, the opposite is also true when you spend time with someone who has a negative attitude and complains about everything this saps your energy and their attitude impacts you.

    One Step At A Time

    Power Thought
    “A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step”

    Meditate On
    And the LORD said to Moses, “Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward.
    Exodus 14:15

    Every new day God bestows fresh mercy and grace for that new day (Lamentations 3:23) which powers you to take a step forward in the direction of your life. This grace is available and is yours and all you have to do literally is put one foot in front of the other today and keep stepping. That is the way you get to any goal, desire or destination.

    Finish Strong

    Empowering Thought

    “Starting strong is good. Finishing strong is epic”
    Robin Sharma

    Reflect On This:
    I have not yet reached my goal, and I am not perfect. But Christ has taken hold of me. So I keep on running and struggling to take hold of the prize
    (Philippians 5:12 CEV)

    December is here; it’s either a sigh of relief or a sigh of “ooh dear I can’t believe the year is ending already”. But wherever you are on the journey I want to encourage you to keep pressing on and reaching for the high life that Jesus promised you. It’s within your reach and you are closer than when you started. If you can just take a moment and look behind you. You have covered a lot of ground you have continued through the year to where you are now. You are stronger than you think, you are here because you kept going and you need to finish strong.

    Slow To Speak

    Empowering Thought

    “Silence is the sleep that nourishes wisdom” – Francis Bacon

    This is my daily mantra now; ‘Jayne be slow to speak…’ and a daily confession that enables me to navigate my relationships. Being watchful of my words, speaking from my heart and not off the top of my head. I don’t always get it right but I’m learning to become mindful of functioning this way. When I get it wrong I also try to be quick to make things right. I treasure relationships and do my best to hold onto them.

    A Wise Person Can Learn From Anybody

    Empowering Thought

    Wisdom starts in your heart not your head

    “The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing” – Socrates

    I have learned some of my most pivotal lessons in life and gleaned wisdom from the most unlikely sources and experiences. For example, teaching teens and young people has taught me not to take everything to heart, they would say “it’s not that deep”. This simple statement that young people often make has enabled me to travel lightly in my heart and not allow stuff to get deep.

    Perspective: How You See It

    Perspective is simply your interpretation or how you view something. To me you can see autumn as messy with all the leaves on the ground and sometimes sticky and messy when it rains on it. Or you can see the autumn season as the forerunner to the next season. It’s all about your perspective. There is power in how you see everything and your attitude and interpretation. How you see a situation and how you interpret it will impact the change you are desiring. Besides for you the believer faith is based on what you don’t see with the natural eyes but focusing on the spiritual aspect which is what is not visible to the 5 senses.

    The Seasons They Are Changing

    “In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer…”

    It seems and feels like it has been a long summer, we have enjoyed great weather and we have experienced heats waves, we have seen floods in summer. In Europe and all over the world the summer has been long and drawn out.

    Yet no matter how long the summer has been I notice that the seasons they are changing. Autumn and the Fall season is gradually emerging as the leaves start to change colour and fall to the ground making way for the next season.

    The Way

    Empowering Thought

    “I am always doing things I can’t do”

    In the New Testament the Christian life is described as a way of being and doing in the world. This means that my daily life and all the practices and things I do reflect the way- the way of life I have embraced in deciding to make Jesus Christ my Lord and Saviour.
