Summer is here!
Find that beach towel (even if you’re not big on swimming).
It’s going to be a HOT one, thanks to global warming.

Jesus knew all about HOT days, living in a place that reached temperatures of 40 degrees!

Maybe that’s why Jesus said we’re like mustard seeds. Mustard seeds are tiny, but they grow into trees that provide shelter for birds and shade for people.

We can see ourselves as SUPER small and insignificant, but Jesus says, “With my help, you’ll be like shade on a hot day to the world.” Cool hey!

Read Mark 4:30-32 (



In Jeremiah 31:33-34 (, God says: ‘I will put My instructions deep within them, and I will write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be My people For everyone, from the least to the greatest, will know Me already And I will forgive their wickedness, and I will never again remember their sins.’

It’s incredible that the God who spoke out the stars and knows how many grass blades grow on this planet – He finds us, claims us as His own, loves us, forgives us, and tells our hearts who He is – no matter who we are.

Let’s thank Him today.


Designer’s original.

When we look in the mirror, sometimes we are unhappy with what we see.
“If my nose were smaller I’d look good!”
“Maybe a new skincare product will put me more at ease.”

No clich, or cheesy statement, but God actually thinks you’re perfect. Psalm 139 ( puts it so beautifully. Every part of you is perfect. You’re an actual “designers original!”

God does not make mistakes.

We hear this all the time, but it actually takes courage, and a different mindset to society, to believe that we are “fearfully and wonderfully made”.

Today KNOW that you are uniquely, and wonderfully made.


Together for JOY.

God gives joy to his people as they worship and serve Him together. David wrote a song about this in Psalm 122:1-9 (

Actually, the song is about Jerusalem, but the city is a picture of happy community. David rejoices with those who want to worship God (v 1). He sees Jerusalem’s buildings built closely together as a picture of unity (v 3). Then he prays for peace for everyone in the city (v 6). For the sake of his peers and friends, he starts to work for peace (v 8).

Don’t travel solo.
Joy is found travelling together with God’s people.
