Wisewords From Yoda – Part 5

Wisewords from Yoda – Part 5: ‘Always pass on what you have learned.’

God’s Grace! It’s pretty amazing really. You get to be adopted into the great big family of God. But here’s the thing – that grace is invisible – just like God. How will people know that God is good? How will they see what grace is about – unless you show them?

‘But thanks be to God, who … uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere.’ 2 Corinthians 1v14.

We were never supposed to keep God’s grace to ourselves. Go ahead. Spread the love

Wisewords From Yoda – Part 3

Wisewords from Yoda – part 3: ‘Try not. Do or do not. There is no try.’

The first time I flew in a plane, I jumped out of it (and there was nothing wrong with the plane). Hours before this, the jump instructor told me a gazillion ways I would die unless I deployed the parachute properly. Hectic! I could stay on the ground in safety but then I would never experience the sheer thrill and rush of free flight.

So it is with God. So it is with his grace. You have to jump into it to know and experience it.

Is there something holding you back that you need to let go of?

‘And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love may grasp how high and deep is the love of Christ.’ Ephesians 3v17-18.




Here’s To All The Moms

Mother’s Day it is! Told Mom you love her today? Done something to honour her? Bought her something? If so, you do well to ‘honour your mother’ (and your father in June!) Exodus 20:12 (

Take some time today to remember and love some other moms: those who miscarried or gave their children up for adoption as a loving act; who aren’t able to have children

After all, Jesus said: ‘Anyone who obeys my Father in heaven is my brother, sister, and mother!’ Matthew 12:50 (




God Loves You – Without The Make-Up

Lots of things going around recently about selfies (with or without makeup). Seems that Facebook / Twitter / Snapchat / Instagram etc are often places to post just the good bits about our lives. Sometimes stories with lots of makeup on right?

Thing is – it can be hard to read all that sparkling stuff from others while comparing it to the ugly stuff we know about ourselves. ‘Nomakeup’ Facebook posts anyone?

Good news! One of the Holy Spirit’s jobs is to search us deeply and celebrate what the Spirit finds in us with the Father and Jesus. The Spirit also gets to work on healing the hurt and clearing out the junk.

No makeup required for God to delight in who you are and do what it takes to make you whole again.
