Returning home after a mountain bike ride, Andy B approached a roundabout. We love these in the UK (it seems). Simply put, you come to a junction, with a circle in the middle. You give way to the right, and proceed carefully.
But they’re super simple to use! Indicate on your approach, and as long as nothing comes from your right, you have right of way (and of course, the British drive on the correct side of the road – the left – hence giving way to the right!).
Life is full of ups and downs. Some days we can fly along, and others it’s like were tasked with stirring treacle, with an oversized paddle, on a cold day! But sometimes, flying isn’t helpful. And sometimes that treacle simply needs stirring!
A wonderful friend of Andy B – Olly, from Nigeria – posted a really funny look at how Africans and Nigerians pray, against how the rest of the world prays. You can watch that on YouTube As funny as it is, it also should make all Christians a little uncomfortable because doesn’t it wonderfully illustrate
Modern Christianity has skewed how we see God and the devil. It has skewed God into some sort of best mate or pal. And we absolutely should see God as always approachable. But we should do so, seeing Him with the respect we’d have for an earthly father, than just a mate.
In Season 4, Episode 9, of Little Blessings Online, Jo Jo and Andy B focus on food – prepare to get hungry! There are pictures of food that might make your mouth water! There’s food in the StoryTime and even in Art Time, JoJo makes food! Food Glorious food….!
God made us in His image. And God is emotional – just look at the life of Jesus, who is God, and you see the perfect Man, with emotions!
So emotions and feelings, clearly, are how Go made us to be! But how much credence should we give to our feelings and emotions?
We get reminders to renew our house insurance, our car insurance, our breakdown cover and host of other things. But do we put as much effort into ensuring our car doesn’t suddenly become illegal to drive on the road, or let our house insurance run out ; if we’re renting in the UK this is something we can’t, not, have.
Time with God can be so easily squeezed out of our days due to the unexpected things that crop up.
