Uplifting Poem

It is only a tiny rosebud,
a flower of God’s design;
But I cannot unfold the petals
with these clumsy hands of mine.

The secret of unfolding flowers
is not known to such as I.
God opens this flower so easily,
but in my hands, they die.

If I cannot unfold a rosebud,
this flower of God’s design,
then how can I have the wisdom
to unfold this life of mine?

So, I’ll trust in God for leading
each moment of my day.
I will look to God for guidance,
in each step along the way.

The path that lies before me,
only my Lord and Saviour knows.
I’ll trust God to unfold the moments,
just as He unfolds the rose.

Dont Forget Your Blessings

In the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives, it is easy to forget how REALLY blessed we are as individuals.

I came across this little jingle that serves as a great reminder for all of us about remembering the blessings that we have!

Your terrible job is the dream of the unemployed.

Your house is the dream of the homeless.

Your smile is the dream of the depressed.

Your money is the dream of the poor.

Your health is the dream of the ill.

Don’t let difficult times make you forget your blessings!!

How to Experience Inner Peace

Dear friend

The last 12 months have been difficult.

Im sure you are feeling fearful and worried about your future. Maybe doubtful that things will get better?

Well, there is only one thing that will help you through…


As faith will illuminate your path in times of darkness, giving you strength in times of weakness. A few words of faith can lighten up your life; they can instill inspiration and peace, helping you see your problems and difficulties in a new way.

Now, if you’re waiting to get that faith from the media, family or friends, you will likely be disappointed as they are probably as fearful and confused as you. Maybe more so.

It is up to you to nurture your faith to help it grow.

In my new book, How to Experience Inner Peace, I would like to show you how a simple change of focus can greatly impact your life—helping you to experience a deeper connection to God. That will strengthen your faith and replace any negative feelings with peace and love.

Life is too short to live worried or in distress. Learn to develop inner confidence, and all your fears will subside.

Daily Inspiration

It is so easy to let people annoy you.

In a conversation with another blogger, she mentioned that she was very angry at a comment that a follower had made. Out of 200+ comments, this one was almost causing her to question why she was blogging.

What was said was very negative towards her but it was as if one comment had the power to cancel out the 99.9% of positive comments.

No matter what we go to do in life, the more successful we become the more people will try to bring us back to their level.

When the small dogs bark at you in life, do yourself a favour and remember that you are a Lion / Lioness.

Are You Feeling Worried?

When our thoughts are lost in worry in can be helpful to focus our mind on something else. Prayer is an excellent solution as it focuses our mind on God.

It focuses our mind on all the times that things worked out for the best.

It can be hard when your in the grips of worry to think about anything else but this is exactly when  you will feel the biggest benefit.
