Brexit is Done, at last.

Battles hard fought and hard won are the more valued victories. That we have left the EU is almost unbelievable to me. Watching the news and seeing it in the newspaper headlines helps. We’ve left! Hallelujah. Praise GOD. We’ve left. I’m so relieved.

Some people do not agree the future is hopeful. It’s important to be sensitive to others but not hide or apologise for being happy; rather, let us try to carry others with us.

“Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice.” (Philppians 4:4)

When we minister to others the Truth of Jesus and the Gospel, we must not hide our joy and delight. Brexit is nowhere near as important, but there is a similar importance to allow ourselves to rejoice when we are happy. Let us be free to enjoy our sense of freedom and victory that has come from leaving the EU and to enjoy the rebirth of freedom for the nation of the United Kingdom.

What brings Life: a reflection

Love. Joy. Peace.

These are life-giving states of being. When I am full of love, I bring love to others.
When I am full of the Joy of my Lord, I emanate joy and others can catch it.

When I walk in God’s Shalom – His peace which passes all understanding – I offer peace to others.

Those things which bring life to us, when shared, bring life to others.

I’m realising, as I allow myself to surrender to what comes along┬ámy path, that I have more peace, because I’m surrendered to the unfolding events of the day. I have more joy, because within me is hope, strength and a rejoicing in the Lord who gives me my breath. And I have more love, because I am “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14) and that my soul knows very well.

I am loved for who I am, not for what I do; that is satisfying and an encouragement that reaches out to others, both naturally and supernaturally.

Love. Joy. Peace. To be received and to be shared. Hallelujah!
