This blog is supposed to be, as much as I can, my daily journey through life as a Christian. I hope it to be my thoughts and feelings on life but be as grounded in the Christian message as it can. My intention is not to create a daily readings or bible study guide but to look at my life in terms of a Christian trying to find and follow God's mission using his Life User's Manuel AKA the Bible.

Matthew 10 19-20

And don't you worry about what you'll say or how you'll say it. The right words will be there; the Spirit of your Father will supply the words. - Matthew 10 19-20

Finally a positive

I don't always have the best relationship with my oldest brother, but I think tonight may have gone some way to repairing damage from the past. As I have already said I am having some problems talking to my Dad about things and the future. So I decided to go ask my older brother for some advice. So after work I headed over to talk to him and tell him about the plans for the future. Afterwards I talked with him about the best way to tell my Dad. My brother and his wife were incredibly supportive and encouraging in a way that I didn't expect. They asked some very pertinent questions and gave some very good advice. I am glad I talked to him tonight and received the advice I did from him as well as the prayers they have offered for me. I feel much happier about things and more confident in talking to my Dad, I'm still not sure when that will be but I'm hoping to find the right time soon. In almost all things in the last 18 months or so there has been a phrase in my mind that I have forgotten of late, it is "Jehovah Jireh" which means God will provide. I must trust that God will provide the time and opportunity when it is right.


  1. See you are making progress! Glad you sought advice from your brother and his wife. It will be ok...and the Lord will help you. I have been praying that even before you tell your dad, that the Lord will be preparing his heart to accept it. I am saying another prayer right now for you.

    God will help you Sam.
