A balloon without air in it iswell, just a piece of boring rubber really.
A car tyre without air in it iswell, a flat tyre that ain’t going anywhere quick.
And a world without you in it would bewell, flat and not round how it’s supposed to be.

Jesus said it like thisdough without yeast isn’t going to rise, and if dough is the world I created, you’re my yeast. Don’t for a minute think no one would miss you. You matter. You are seen. You are not alone. You are irreplaceable. Like yeast.

Just ask the woman making bread in Luke 13:20-21 (


Meeting place.

Check out Hosea 6:3 (

How about this for a promise: “as surely as the sun rises, He (the Lord) will appear.”

God promises that we will find Him when we seek Him wholeheartedly; He will meet us where we are. Hosea urges us to keep acknowledging God because he knows how we need God to nourish and satisfy us.

“Let us acknowledge the Lord, let us press on to acknowledge Him”. May we be those who run into the arms of God in faith, with confession, desiring to change to be more like Him!

How can you seek God more this week?


Exchange worry for trust.

“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.” Philippians 4:6-7 (

Worry says, ‘I’m in control.’ And that’s what causes most of our anxiety and our frustration because we give ourselves power that’s not ours to bare. In fact, it becomes a burden because the control of our lives should be given to God. Learn to put this into practice, whenever you get scared or anxious, PRAY. Give it over to God. Point it out to Him. Allow him to lead you to the peace found in Him.


Heart matters.

God is most interested in the state, or position, of our hearts. He wants our hearts to be His, since we are His children and creation.

Don’t you want to know more of Him?

Meditate on Joel 2:12-14 (

God says to his people “Return to me with your heart, with fasting, weeping and mourning. Rend (rip) your heart, not your garments”. God wants our heart to be devoted to Him, but our hearts easily wander toward other things or people. He wants us back and we’re encouraged to return because of who God is and what He is like.
