“Safe? Who said anything about safe?”

I love this quote in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S Lewis, this quote is talking about Aslan who represents Jesus.

“”Safe?” Said Mr Beaver, “who said anything about safe? Course he isn’t safe. But he’s good. He’s the King, I tell you.””

 

When we follow and trust Jesus we are saying we know this journey with Him is not easy and Jesus isn’t the ‘safe’ option. But He is King and He is good. SO good and ALWAYS good. And that’s what we have to hold ont0: God’s goodness and sovereignty.

 

This is a joy

It’s been a while since I properly blogged, apologies!

 

There has been BIG NEW NEWS since my last post and that is that I am now the official Youth Worker at Haywards Heath Baptist Church – of which I am employed 14 hours per week.┬áThis is incredibly exciting, a massive answer to prayer and a new journey I am beginning.

 

I begun my new role on October 1st, and it’s been a great start. Many of you know that HHBC has always been my ‘home’ church. I came to faith through the youth work there, and so it’s always been close to my heart. To be able to give something back to the church by working with the children and young people at the Church, is just a massive privilege and blessing to me, I am so grateful to God for this opportunity.

My prayer for this new season is simply that I will give my all to God, and that through this there will be breakthrough with the children and young people I work with. For them, things may change as I seek His will, and I hope that keeping it God-centered will be an example for them all.

 

Sometimes I just want to jump up and down with joy because of what Jesus has called me to do, firstly working with young people and where He currently has called me to at HHBC. This is a joy.

 

Just wanted to keep you updated on what I’m doing, and I will hopefully be blogging more regularly as I get settled into my new routine.

If you are a prayer please pray for me, the young people and children, HHBC and as I look for another part time job to go along side this one.

 

“If you feel like you a walking through a dark valley…

“If you feel like you are walking through a dark valley, hear God’s promises for you: ‘I will give you treasures in this valley! Riches stored in secret places.’ So, beloved, walk forward and unafraid, with faith, be strong and take heart. God is near even if you can’t feel Him. He’s for you, with you and making a way where there is no way. Don’t give up, keep walking, persevere and you will see a breakthrough.” God is a God of breakthrough!
