A New Footstool – Jenny Gilpin

Jesus is not in the business of allowing us to face challenges which he knows will break us. Jesus is not about having those things which come against us defeat us. Maybe it’s time to start seeing your challenges not as a weight to crush you, but an implement to lift you up as you stand above it. The enemy is under your feet, it’s time to step onto a new footstool.

Let your roots grown deep in the garden of Christ and you’ll grow in the garden!

Don’t Mess With the Mustard – Jenny Gilpin

We often think the way to see our dreams realised is to grow our faith, to build our faith, to have enough faith to see us through the hard times. But the strength of our faith is in its source not its size – we need only faith the size of a mustard seed. A minute amount of faith in an all-powerful God is all we need. Don’t belittle your mustard-seed seed of faith, don’t look for ‘bigger faith’ – don’t mess with the mustard!
