Consider the Sparrow…

I was challenge at the weekend by 3 simple words found in the book of Matthew- ‘Consider the sparrows’.

Simple, yet words that hit home with me, made me think a lot and made me ask myself the question, when actually was the last time I noticed the magnificence and splendour of creation. When was the last time I considered the sparrows or considered the lilies (Matt 9).

I am ashamed to say these thoughts rarely pass life reflections!

So on Sat night I walked home from Banbridge to Laurencetown in the hammering rain. It sucked like nothing else, but I was reminded of the beauty of my natural surroundings and the importance of rain. I simply took time to consider...

Do it!

Although looking back I’ll never forget, how long it is to actually walk that distance and how wet you really can become when God waters the plants!

The Great Beyond

Decisions have always been a struggle for me.

I have been labeled many times as the most indecisive.
It’s true in a way. I like to weigh things up to determine the outcome of the choice I make-before I make them! I always take a lot of time to arrange and attain these decisions.

The great beyond-the future discomforts me a lot.

I don’t know what I wana be in the not so far away future! At present finishing my year out with DYFC, I have crawled to a point of, were next? I still want to serve youth of Dromore, and watch as they come to know Jesus, so I have decided to assist leadership for another year at ‘The Base’. Still on the search for quality courses to assist taking leadership or even furthering the worship thing.-I cant decide yet.

But God is good and in control of this chapter in Pete’s life.
I’ll just have to listen for his whisper and wait patiently…..something else I’m not the best at!
