God doesn’t pick the strongest, shiniest & ‘best’ for life’s challenges; He creates His strongest & best disciples through life’s challenges.

Just a little thought…..Unlike the world, God doesn’t look for the best, the strongest and the “shiniest” for lifes’s challenges. It’s the other way around. He creates His strongest and best disciples out of some of life’s most challenging and toughest trials.

“God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful.”
‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭1:27‬

I love getting together with friends and sharing with each other over a cup of coffee what God is doing in our lives, it boosts my faith and lifts my heart. That's the aim of this blog. There's a story behind it; It was inspired after a friend gave me a single mustard seed, saying ‘that’s all it takes Jill’. What my friend didn’t know was that the very same morning God had reminded me of a promise He'd made to me over 20 years before regarding writing. I took the mustard seed home, planted it and watched it grow from a tiny sapling to a large, flourishing shrub at our front door. Every time I look at it it reminds me that our God is always true to his promises. Jesus lives in and works through his people, every single day. It's good to share what he's doing! I love talking about Him and writing about Him.
