Yesterday should of been filled with deep sadness but instead a small church plant ensured I had a lot of fun. I travelled alone to my final UK preaching appointment. This was a fitting end to my ministry here. God and I on the road together. Off I travelled to Watford.
I must confess to having a lot of fun. We had a great ice breaker. We had a fun sermon and then I closed with the words Jesus thinks you are special and if there was only you on this earth he would come and do it all for you. You are loved and precious.
I hope I remember that wherever I may go. As a final sermon I am so chuffed that God gave me those closing words. I think that what we say is important. Despite the many challenges I have faced ministering in the UK I would like it know. That God loves each and every one of us. We are special to him.

I am managing everyday to fast. I really thought when I was younger that there would be no way something like this was possible. God is good and he is keeping me. I do find I want to eat better as a result.
My observations are that fasting keeps your mind going back to something. As a parent who stays at home it is very easy for me to lose perspective. With the fast I at least remember every day that God wants me to be better. Sometimes this can feel difficult but for the most part at least someone is watching over me and keeping me going in the right way.
I really admire all those stay at home mums that study their bible regularly. I admire those stay at home parents who start businesses, write books, run successful blogs and do so much more. Next to them most days I feel inadequate. I can barely cope with staying awake. But the fast has done one thing given me a focal point. It has at least made my mind try to do better than simply stay awake and watch my favourite show.
I am considering making fasting a part of my year. That is massive deal. With all the changes I have gone through and am about to do I am grateful to have the opportunity to fast. It really is moment changing.

I have decided upon a new regime. I will arise early 5 mornings a week and study the word and pray. My starting motivation was all wrong even though my intentions were good.
I started because my life has been in a mess for five years now and I suddenly hit a wall I couldn't climb over. So I thought thats it I cannot do this God will fix it. Well having studied and taught long enough I know that ultimatums and God do not go hand in hand.
My week got hijacked and the best layed plans went to waste. But of this one thing I did stick to getting up early and studying my bible. Is it hard? Yes I have small children plus a nephew a house guest and a husband gettjng up early is no joke. It takes commitment and dedication. Is it worth it? Absolutely. Anything you feel passionate is worth the work.
So here is the picture of the first page of my new journal. Over the next few weeks hopefully I will post some of my inspiration here. I am a creative soul but an artist well thats yet to be decided. I think it doesn't matter as much as actually trying and putting yourself out there for God to use.
