Do not judge and you will not be judged.
Forgive and you will be forgiven.
Give and it will be given to you.
Luke 6: 37-38

The Lord's great love..

Today, in my daily bible reading:
Lamentations 3:22-24

22 Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
23 They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
24 I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.”

The prophet Jeremiah walked through the streets and alleys of Jerusalem after its destruction by the Babylonian soldiers and saw nothing but pain and suffering. This happened in late 586 BC or early 585 BC. In this book, he expresses his grief over the fall of Jerusalem because of her sin and reminds the readers that “sin, in spite of all its allurement and excitement, carries with it heavy weights of sorrow, grief, misery, barrenness, and pain.” 
In the midst of all the suffering, Jeremiah reminds us to put our hope and trust in the Lord who loves us faithfully as we are his beloved children. 16 For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)
Have a blessed day in Jesus-Christ.

About Me

My photo

I was born in France and brought up as a catholic. After the traumatic divorce of my parents, I moved to England and became a lost sheep. However I was convinced that I was 'a good person' until I fell in a muddy pit in July 2005 after taking decisions without seeking God's Word for guidance.  I cried out to the Lord and He heard me. I was rescued and redeemed by Jesus-Christ my saviour. He has turned my life around. 
I live blissfully with my husband Steven,  a c.o.e. vicar, near Stafford (UK). We are the proud parents of three loving daughters, I am also a step-mum, I have an amazing family including a step mum, two brothers and two sister and a dear sister-in-law and her children and grand-children, lots of cousins and eleven nephews and nieces. We live near Stafford in the UK.
