Wake Up!

Wake Up!

wakeuppic

On Thursday, I had my niece over for a sleep over and I love having her over. There is nothing like being in the moment enjoying adventures, watching movies and eating. We went to bed early on Thursday night and she was looking forward to watching a new series that she found on TV.

I woke the next morning around 4am, yeah, I thought to myself I can sleep some more. I snuggled into the pillow and closed my eyes and drifted off to sleep.

The next thing I knew someone had shouted BOO! I woke from my sleep startled, disorientated and slightly confused. I screamed that half asleep half asleep kind of scream. I opened my eyes and standing next to my bed was my niece smiling and laughing. I was caught off guard I thought that I was having some sort of heart attack (sorry exaggerating there).

By this time my niece was laughing and I said to her “Why did you wake me up like that?”

She said that she was going to say wake up its going to be a great day, come on get up. Let’s enjoy the day.

I said to her that would have been nicer.

It made me think about our lives and are we going through our lives half asleep or are we fully awake?

Do we know what we are doing?

Do we know what direction we are going?

Are we fully embracing our lives or are we missing out on things?

Are we in the moment in our daily lives or our we thinking about what we have to do next?

Do you need someone to say to you Boo! Get up come on, it’s going to be a beautiful day, come on, let’s go?

If I am really honest, Yes, every now and then I need someone to say to me Boo! Come on the world is waiting there are endless possibilities. What are you going to be missing out on, look around?

Open your eyes and look really look.

I don’t want to miss out on opportunities this year.

I want to spend more time fully in the moment.

I want to spend more time investing in being in the moment more.

Wake up, lovely and see watch is happening today.

His Promise

Daily Reading- Romans 8:28

Daily Devotional-

Read Romans 8:28 out loud- And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God to those who are called according to His purpose.

In the verse, we see that -All things work out according to His purpose.

Be encouraged.

This is a scripture to hold onto when you are going through those difficult times. Difficult times do happen and it is the way that we respond to them that makes the difference on how we get through them.

Write the scripture out and place it somewhere that you will see it every day. This is a reminder of His promise.

Whatever happens in our life we know that he is with us.

We know that God will bring us through these hard times. Stay in faith, pray and ask for others to pray for you.

Trust that He will work it out for your good, you may not see it or know how He will work it out but keep stepping forward. He has amazing plans for you and He needs you to keep walking forward. Be brave.

When he brings you through things this is your testimony for others to help and encourage them.

Your testimony will be powerful because it shows that you are a strong woman of faith. It shows Gods strength in you.

Have faith.

Goodbye Fear

Goodbye Fear

goodbyefearpic

Daily Reading: Fear not, for I am with you: Be not dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10

Daily Devotional:

This is a letter to fear in your life

Dear Fear

Fear it is time for you to go.

Fear you have been evicted from our lives.

We have had enough of you controlling our lives and it is time for you to leave.

By saying goodbye to you it will allow us to live the life that God has intended for us.

No longer will we be bound by your control; no longer will we shrink back.

We have listened to your lies long enough.

We know that you are a liar.

Fear we will challenge your lies by the word of God and what he says about us.

God’s word says that we are fearfully and wonderfully made.

God is in our lives and he said Fear not for I am will you.

Fear when you leave and when we look to God our lives will be changed for the better.

You may still be hanging around in the background but we will not let us stop what we have been called to do.

Fear we do not fear you anymore.

Have you ever wanted to write a letter to fear to say goodbye?

The verse from Isaiah is encouraging.

Together let’s encourage one another.

So for today let’s Pray, dream and walk boldly knowing that God is with us.

Be bold, be brave, be courageous.
