The Lord is saying.   Eye has not seen nor ear heard that which I have in store for those who love me. I delight in the plans that I have for you. I enjoy the thoughts of your future and the blessings of your inheritance that you shall surely come into. Slowly and surely your path is becoming brighter and there are some wonderful surprises on your way, that I take great joy in . I love to see the delight in your eyes when I touch your heart with the "little things" that mean so much.


Obedience....... takes grace!!!!

I remember the struggle many years ago....... I wanted to be obedient to that still small voice of the Lord.. Sometimes, maybe I'd scarcely succeed and sometimes I'd fail.... Many times I'd find it impossible, especially when it came to doing something that looked like there was no explanation for and people thought I was "weird", but I wished later I'd obeyed, because the circumstances proved that the "still small voice was correct". The conflict was horrible. I wanted so much to obey God but hated looking weird, or nasty.
I'm not sure what happened but somehow it got resolved in my mind when one of little Jonni's cousins pestered his Mum, after a visit, to stay and play. These little alarm bells were going off inside of me and disturbing my peace but I didn't want to offend the mother. We had a terrible time over the next few hours, the lad running about and causing all sorts of chaos.
In despair I told God that without Him I couldn't even obey Him, so from now on I was going to rely on Him and His grace to just simply do His basic will because on my own I just couldn't, especially when it came to saying "No".
Obedience usually comes naturally without the battle with my will anymore. I've still got a lot of growing in grace to do and I'm realising there are more areas of my life I could surrender to the Lord and find victory in by His grace.
If by any chance I begin to think how 'obedient' I am on my own.... I fall flat on my face as a reminder........

Obedience... takes grace!!!!

But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
2 Peter 3:18.


Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. John 15 4,5.












Sponsored walk

A 15km walk around Dovedale to help dig a well for constant fresh water for the rubbish dump children in Tenali, India.
Would you like to join us in the walk, sponsor us or organise sponsorship for us

Sponsored Walk

Message from Anita Ball

As you may already know a team of us went out to India in December of last year to visit with Brother Raju (who is also a medical doctor) and he took us round the tribal villages of Tenali that he cares for. He took us to many tribal villages but the one that needs our help now is the one in Guntur. This village is right next to a rubbish dump and they are desperately in need of a bore well. We need to raise at least £600 for this well to be dug and so I am going to do a walk around Dovedale at the end of June and for those of you who would like to sponsor me then please get in touch with either myself or Shirley to donate. There are so many good things that Brother Raju does for his people that if we are blessed to have more money than we need for the well this will then be spent feeding the children of the villages and helping Brother Raju provide medical care for all the tribal villages. I pray that God will put it in your heart to help these people. God bless to you all. Your sister in Christ Jesus xxx
