Be Blessed or Be a Blessing

We all know quite well the story of King Solomon and his encounter with God in the dream from 2 Kings 3,5-14. The Lord appeared to Solomon in the dream and simply said: “Ask! What shall I give you?” We all know that Solomon asked for wisdom. When we were reading this passage in the reading plan something hit me, which I have never seen before. Solomon could have asked

Stress versus peace

On Sunday the 6th July, Party in the Park 2014 took place. Thousands of people flocked to Buile Hill Park, heard the gospel and saw love in action. I had spent the past 10 months working on this event, keeping numerous church leaders and organisations happy, dealing with stringent rules and stipulations from the council and other authorities, managing a tight budget and sorting out the requirements of multiple stage

Holiday

The final weeks of term were always a great time for me as although I loved school, the thought of the 6 week holiday was always a great prospect. Not only did it mean Faith Camp was nearly upon us but the family holiday was nearly here as well. 30 years on from my first Faith Camp I am still just as excited about going again and having time to

Greater is He that is in me

This weekend Colin Urquhart brought a couple of very powerful messages to us as a church and the one in the evening really resonated with what I have been thinking about, meditating on and praying through over the past couple of months. He was talking about being an overcomer and having the expectancy in prayer and faith not for a fight but for victory. One of the key verses that

The Secret Place

Recently I have been challenged to look at my personal time that I spend with the Father in the Secret Place; this is a separate time from my Bible Study, it is learning to sit and be still with my Father, just to be in His Presence, no agendas, no asking for anything, just to sit at His feet to know His presence, His Grace and Love, to Worship Him

A Perfect Fit

I recently had the opportunity to see how these beautiful glass bottles are made, and how the stoppers are fitted. Because they are unique, the stopper will only fit the particular glass bottle it is made for, and fits so well that you can turn it and lift the bottle up by the stopper

Encounter

Over the past couple of weeks, as part of WHBCdaily, we have been reading about Solomon and his time becoming King and then building the temple. Following on from a previous blog where I talked about how much things changed in one generation from war to peace, I want to pick up on this and focus on a significant event that happened in Solomon’s life. I have read these stories many times and particularly love the part where he asks for wisdom and then we see it put into practice with two mothers and a baby. However as I read 1 Kings 3 last week, I saw something I had never seen before. In verse 3 we see that Solomon showed his love for the Lord by doing what his
