Here on Earth – Simon Taylor

As human beings we need daily provision, forgiveness and strength in the face of temptation. John 15:4 says ‘Remain in me, and you will bear much fruit.’ Life can become difficult when you are not remaining. Our struggle in life is not to bear fruit, but for our roots to find water. God’s will is greater than our will. He is our source, our provision and the One who everything good flows from. Over these next ten days, allow your roots to become deeper and seek Him more.

Mending Fences – Dave Gilpin

Fences are good- good for privacy, good for personal time and good for protection. To love someone is to love their fence.

 To love their fence is to allow them space- space to back away, space to hide, space to process and space to find their own convictions on life and faith. 

To push through the fence either causes offence that results in a stronger fence of defence, or for some, leads to broken fences and no fences.
