Good Things Come To Those Who Wait

I am so excited to tell you that I am going back to school next week! I will start off with one lesson a week, then slowly build up from there. It’s all happened very quickly and I thank God that he has helped us to sort it all out!

For those of you that are still stuck at home, in bed or even in hospital – don’t give up! God has a perfect timing for everything and if it is his will to heal you, he will do it when he knows it is the right time! In the mean time, keep praying, and use your time at home to build up a close relationship with your loving father.

I have learnt so much over the time I have been ill and I know that i will come out the other side a much stronger person. I am so glad that God is using this little blog to inspire other people, and I pray that he will keep doing that as I continue to write it!

I hope you are all as well as possible, and if not, don’t despair. Keep hoping in the Lord and take every opportunity that he gives you. Good things come to those who wait, as I have discovered!

Praising God

It’s so important to remember to praise God everyday! After all; he truly deserves it! The bible instructs us to ‘…continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God’ (Hebrews 13:15) and to ‘rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks'' (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18). God loves to hear us praise him and it is what he asks of us!

Worshiping God can be hard when we are feeling sad or ill, but we shouldn’t just worship when we feel like it! Try praising God for who he is, rather than just what he has done for you. Your conditions and mood may change, but God is everlasting and unchangeable.

There are so many benefits of praising. It gives us indescribable peace and joy, and all our troubles become so small! God also promises to bless all who worship him.

If all those reasons aren't good enough…this one will be. We are so, so small and unholy. Our God is so, so big and amazingly holy! But he loves us and he always will! Now, I don’t know about you but that is a good enough reason as any to make me praise the Lord!!!
