Conception

Sensational thought from Ps Phil Pringle as we go into Christmas and as we think about the start of a new year ... birthing your purpose - read this: 'And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a son.' Luke 1:31 All of us, like Mary, are to conceive the purpose of God for ourselves through an encounter with God.

Finding a Marriage Partner …

“He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord" Proverbs 18:22” Clearly marriage should not be gone into lightly. However, for many the possibility of marriage is daunting - for you let me say ‘Fear not’! Ahead of you is one the most rewarding journeys imaginable. A covenant of the most significant order compared to Christ’s covenant with His Church. This thought should not be so much a daunting one but a liberating one. You do not enter marriage on your own. All of heaven is on your side. 3 simple tips in finding your marriage partner: 1. Take an honest look at yourself before you set the standards of the partner you are looking for. This will stop you from either under or over projecting! 2. Perfection doesn’t exist. Really. Whoever you marry there

“He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord" Proverbs 18:22 Gratitude is the greatest gift to perspective.

Result … better wife. "Whatever a man sows, that he will also reap" Galatians 6:7 Every marriage will face its challenges. Every couple will find the temptation to compare ones partner with others. The greatest antidote to this common temptation is not to dwell so much on what he or she could do to be a better partner for you

Attention Please!

Give your attention completely to these matters. 1 Timothy 4:15 What we give our attention to will carry the greatest value and reap the greatest rewards. Without the right attention we can never expect our relationships to do so well. This is what attention gives: TIME – what you do is not always as important as simply the giving of time. Being together says what I could be doing is less important than you. WORDS – talk together in ways that enrich each other’s world. Know when to talk and when to listen. Guys you can talk – try it! ACTIVITY – do together what works together. Eat together, play together, go to Church together. Embrace activity, not as something that adds to your 'busy' life but as something that enhances your world together. How could you give your attention to y
