Lord, forgive me my lack of focus. Forgive me for the times when I forget about you and your call on my life. Help me to place you at the very centre of all that I do, to acknowledge you in all things and to give you the thanks and praise that you deserve. MayContinue reading “Focus”
Dear Lord, help my focus to be on you toady. I commit my whole day, in every part, to you. Please direct my path and guide my plans. Help my thoughts to be measured and my words and actions to always be under control. Amen

However, if you speak of their potential it will be that potential that grows! If we speak to them of their lack or of their failings itContinue reading “Speak into People’s Lives”
When God ask us to daily pick up our cross it is not a call to suffering, pain and death. It is, in fact, a call to perspective and focus.
