Lost



One of the priviledges of my job as a programme assistant at the Salvation Army is that i am able to meet new people and develope relationships with these people and hopefully they see that i am diffirent because i am tryinjg to live a christian life.

I have been in the office on my own this morning and a lady came in to me in floods of tears. Everything seems to be going wrong for her. Her mum has got cancer and is really poorly, her marriage has failed and things seem so bad for her at the moment. There are alot of deeper emotional issues that she is also stuggling with too. At one point in our coversation this morning this lady said" I just hate my life" At this point i am sure i should of mentioned Jesus to her but i don't think that she is at that point yet for us to be able to have conversation about God. But i suddenly realised this morning this lady is lost, lost in this world and the only light that is pure for her to find is the light of a fresh start in Jesus. I really belive that it is no co incidence that she has come to this centre and i am asking that you would pray for this lady in the next week, pray that the right oppertunity for us to talk about God will pop up and that she will be responsive.

I'm getting on my knees right now!

You shall go to the ball!


At church we have just appointed a new leader for our childrens work, Sylvia Wills. Sylvia is a primary school teacher and also is an absolute natural with children. the kids just seem to respond to her really well which is great! During the Christmas period sylvis organised a great christingle service for the children, during this service we had a puppet show and Father Christmas even made an apperance! The christmas kids programme also included a fairytale/Princess party were we all dressed up as our favourite fairytale character ( I think the adults had more fun dressing up than the children did!) We had a great disco, more puppets and party food! At church it really is a blesing to work with sylvia and the other childrens workers in looking after the children.

My long lost love in Chans chinese takeaway on Knowsley Road, St Helens!!!! ( in the style of a Mills and Boon Classic!)
Oh my goodness!!! I have just been to Chans for the last treat ever before i start the slimming world healthy eating plan in the morning. As i went in i noticed that there were 2 policemen and one police woman.
One of the police men kept looking at me and was extremely lovely! He had the most dreamy eyes! Chocolate brown! I smiled back at him then his order was called so he came and stood next to me and brushed my arm it sent a shiver down my spine! He order some spring rolls and a portion of chicken fried rice and then asked the assistant for "2 cans one coke and one 7up! and said diet of course" and laughed, i also let out a little giggle! The Chinese assistant didn't get the joke! He looked me right in the eye as the assistant was packing his order up and smiled again to which i of course smiled sweetly back!
He pulled out a £20.00 note to pay and the assistant took it and then went to the till on which it said £6.50 change he looked at me and give a look as if to say "how much?!" i giggled and said "that's an expensive tea!" He laughed back in a shy manor.
Meanwhile is 2 colleagues had been stopped by 2 local girls who were asking about some local youths who had been throwing bricks through one of their relatives windows, you could see that they were wanting to get away and have there tea.
Brown eyes looked at me and rolled his eyes to which i said "You can't even have your tea in peace!" Brown eyes bending over closer to me to hear what i was saying! He laughed "You can't even go to the toilet in peace!" With that he winked at me and left the Chinese never to be seen again!
I love my world!!!!

Oh What a night....................

New years eve 2006 was a great night for me this year, in fact i would even go so far as to say the best new year ever! I spent it at my 2nd church which is the Liverpool Boiler Room. I had ad great time we had some worship and a small message and then just had lots of fellowship with each other. Then as 12 o'clock struck we went out side and watched as the fireworks went off one lady even prayed with me for a happy and healthy 2007 and that God would really bless me and use me in this new year. Then we went back in and just had a crazy time of worshiping God! It was amazing! The holy spirit presence was so close.

What a way to enter in to a new year than with your church family praising God for all he has done for us and all he is going to do in 2007. This made such a change form some of the places i have spent new year of which i don't even want to mention.

At the end of the day Christmas and new year are all about God and all the glory should be his its by his grace that we are here to celebrate. I personally was celebrating all that God has given me in 2006 and the things he has taken away that have made my life so much better. I was celebrating the exciting challenge of another year of following Gods exciting plan for my life.

So new years resolutions!!!
Well the obvious one is the one that gets on my list every year! I'll see if anyone can guess that one?!

1 - To grow closer to God and to spend more time developing our relationship together .

2 - To make the most of now and not to wish my life away. Every moment of our lives if a gift even if its not were you want to be at the time. I need to learn to be grateful for what i have got now and be excited for tomorrow!

3- To read my new 'Cover to Cover' daily reading guide that some very nice friends of mine bought me for Christmas. If anyone else is reading this let me know, it would be cool to do it together?

4- To develop the fruit of the spirit - Patience.

5 - To be still and listen to God on a regular basis! In all the hustle and bustle of last year this was one thing that i really didn't do much but i want to hear from God as we know prayer is a conversation and we all know that conversations are a 2 way thing. I don't give God much time to answer back its always me just gabbing away!

6 - To stay focused on the positive and not to dwell on the negative.

7 - To believe in myself! I am a beautiful child and princess of God! I am a capable young woman with a life full of potential. ( I will need to work on this one!)

8 - To manage my time better and to learn to say no!

9 - To grasp the concept that I can only be completely fulfilled in Jesus and remember that he is all sufficient.


10 - To be honest with myself and others, not to pretend i am ok when really i feel like i am struggling and can't keep my head above water. this is one of the main reasons God created friendship!

I think that is enough to be getting on with! What do you think ? Will i be able to keep to them? I am accountable to you my fellow bloggers!!

Bless you all in this exciting new year!
