Tonight, my heart is full. Full of memories and moments. I am blessed, not because I have, but because I get to give.
“But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind. For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord, being a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.” James 1:5-8 NASB
Have you ever received a text or email and it starts with “This is just a little reminder…”
God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble. Psalm 46:1 (NLT)
He places glasses over my eyes so I can see enough, takes me by the hand and says, “trust me”. Other times He puts powerful glasses on my nose, takes me by the hand and says “let’s go”. Then there are the scary times when I live by faith only taking step by step not seeing anything in front of me…
My bowl full of reflections are now in the hands of Almighty God- He knows what to do with them.
The Prodigal Daughter by Elizabeth Moldovan is a book that is raw, honest and refreshingly open in the testimony shared on the white pages of the book. It often seems unrealistic for a person like myself who has never been confronted or overwhelmed by an addiction in my own life, yet for those in the grip of such death would only understand too well the cry echoed in the pages of this book. The downward spiral stopped by the outstretched hand of a merciful and loving God bringing life to a broken body, soul and spirit can only be seen as a miracle.
Religions says go and find peace and there you will find God. God says come to me and I will give you peace.

Saying no to violence starts within the hearts of average Australians, every person, every man, every woman, and every child. Everyone is worth something to someone. Saying no is the start. Standing up, taking action and speaking is the next.
