New Tricks

Ever heard that saying: “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks!”?
Well, I disagree! Each day, we can learn something new!

“Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance” – Proverbs 1:5 (

There is this old (ish) song that says “you live you learn.”
I like that! Each day is a “classroom.”

We can learn to be kind.
We can learn new skills.
We can learn new information.
We can learn new things about God.

Maybe, a good practice is to start each day with a simple prayer: “God, what will You teach me today?”


Uniquely Purposed

When God created us, He created us for a special purpose. With a unique set of skills, talents, strengths etc.

So when God calls us to work for Him, He simply asks: “What’s in your hand?” Just as He asked Moses ( Whatever skills, talents and strengths you have already been blessed with, can be used for the kingdom of God!

Sometimes we feel so insignificant, and not worthy enough to be used by God. But like Moses, we shouldn’t be focusing on what we can’t do, but on what God can do through us!

This is where our confidence should come from.



Let’s take a quick check of what’s inside of you. Put your hand on the left side of your chest. Heart. Yup, still beating. Ribs. Can you feel them pocking out just above your stomach? What about kidneys? Trust me they’re there! Anda rushing river. Surprise!

Read Jesus’ promise in John 7:37-39 (

You are not only made up of flesh and bone. You also have rivers of living water in you, the Holy Spirit, a gift of grace to all those who accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour.

So, do a happy dance, ’cause living waters are swooshing around in you.



David was the great shepherd-king who had a BIG future.
So, it’s interesting when he simply prayed, ‘Let me hear of Your unfailing love each morning, for I am trusting You. Show me where to walk, for I give myself to You.’ (Psalm 143:8 –

He just asks God to show him where to walk.

If you’re stressed about what the future might look like and you don’t know what to do or where to turn, simply ask God, today, to show you where to walk. It’s your moment-by-moment daily obedience that will add up to a beautiful life.
