Food for thought    17th April 09

Our thoughts create our reality -- where we put our focus is the direction we tend to go.
Peter McWilliams

Don't look to the left
Don't look to the right
Make straight paths for your feet
and walk on in the light
Don't listen to the voices
Don't be hypnotised
Walk on in the light that God gives you

When God gives a word and
your heart burns with joy
for you know what
He said was just right,
then everything comes at you
to tell you its a lie.
Keep on walking in the light.

It might seem strange
that your faith is tested so and believing sometimes seems a fight,
but the truth belongs to you
if you hold on through it all
and you carry on
walking in the light

Shirley Howitt






The Lord is saying... What is your focus child, are you looking straight ahead or are you being distracted. Choose to make straight paths for your feet and let us go forward together towards your destiny. Do not hesitate but make haste for there is much ground to claim.


Pro 4:23 -27 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it [are] the issues of life. Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee.
Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.
Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.


When we have missed it and want to give up, run from God, and to hide; thats the time when we need to get up, ask for the old paths and carry on walking with Jesus. There's something about walking on despite our feelings and our emotions that helps our character to be built up, and to breed hope.

God is always encouraging us. I once heard a story by Oral Roberts. It went something like this.........A cow had just given birth to a new born calf. The cow was licking the calf in upward strokes constantly, to try to get it to stand up.. God spoke to Oral and said."That is the way I am with my children, my strokes are always upwards". He is always encouraging us to stand back up and carry on. In doing so healing comes.


Hebrews 12: 12,13 Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees; And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed..
