Is God Checked-Out?

Is God Checked-Out?

Here’s a little excerpt from my journal I came across this morning.  Maybe some of you can relate… I’m sitting drinking Kenyan coffee out of a jam jar feeling like a real hipster as I write this. Do you really care?  Should you care?  Does God care about the tiny insignificant details of our daily lives?  Or is He checked out?  Is He interested? I think that can be a dangerous question to ask. Is God interested in the details?  Because what you do with that answer will have a huge impact in your life. In the future decisions you make. In where you take vacation. In how you treat your spouse. In what you do on a day to day basis. But isn’t that part of the excitement?  To know that the God who created the heavens and the earth is interested in you. Because you were born in His image. You carry His DNA. For me I have memories of a father who seemed a little checked-out. Sure, I knew deep down that he loved me. But he never told me in words or physical affection. So how I portrayed my earthly father, I then pushed onto how I saw my Heavenly Father.  Is God really interested?  Or has He more important things (or people) to be interested in?  What agreement had I made in all this?  Honestly?  I figured that God was checked-out of my life. That sure, He would turn up for everybody else. But me?  No way.     Edited with BlogPad...

Angelic Intervention

Angelic Intervention

Almost a month ago, I was heading to work in Co Armagh and had a strong urge to specifically pray for angelic intervention on the way.  I had already prayed through the Daily Prayer before leaving that morning, but something kept niggling at me.  I’ve learned from past experiences that if the urge doesn’t go away then I need to pray into it.  Which I did. About an hour later, I was turing off the main road onto a side road and all of a sudden I slammed on the car breaks – everything happened so fast but out of the corner of my eye I caught a glimpse of another car.  Basically there was  another car coming to the same junction but they hadn’t seen me and drove straight out in front of me.  Now the strange thing was, when I hit the breaks, my car seemed to ‘move’ to the left even though I was turing right.  It was as if ‘something’ had moved my car out of the way just enough to avoid a collision. Angelic intervention?  If you’d asked me that a year ago, I’d probably have said ‘no’.  It was just a coincidence.  But now, I would firmly say 100% YES! Follow your heart.  Listen to the inner promptings.  Your Father is speaking to you all the time.  We just need to tune in and...
The Daily Prayer

The Daily Prayer

We have found the following prayer an amazing source of strength and encouragement that we really wanted to share it with you.  It’s called the Daily Prayer from the Ransomed Heart team www.ransomedheart.com My dear Lord Jesus, I come to you now to be restored in you, renewed in you, to receive your life and your love and all the grace and mercy I so desperately need this day. I honor you as my Lord, and I surrender every aspect and dimension of my life to you. I give you my spirit, soul, and body, my heart, mind, and will. I cover myself with your blood—my spirit, soul, and body, my heart, mind, and will. I ask your Holy Spirit to restore me in you, renew me in you, and lead this time of prayer. In all that I now pray, I stand in total agreement with your Spirit and with all those praying for me by the Spirit of God and by the Spirit of God alone. Dearest God, holy and victorious Trinity, you alone are worthy of all my worship, my heart’s devotion, all my praise, all my trust, and all the glory of my life. I love you, I worship you, I give myself over to you in my heart’s search for life. You alone are Life, and you have become my life. I renounce all other gods, every idol, and I give to you, God, the place in my heart and in my life that you truly deserve. This is all about you, and not about me. You are the Hero of this story, and...
