Today's Message

Dear Father God, let there be joy in the world! Let Your praises be sung far and wide! May our hearts be filled with gladness. As we celebrate our salvation may we always remember and treasure Your love for us. The lamp is lit and darkness hides from You. Be a lamp unto our feet, Father God, that we may not stray from You and be a light to others who dwell in the shadows.

Failure Is Not The End

19 Jan 2020

I am sure failure in what we have done and our relationships have always got us down. No two ways about it. We would have been disappointed. We would have been angered. We would have been exasperated. We would have been depressed. We would have felt let down by people who we thought could be trusted and we loved. Sometimes, we would have felt like giving up. But, looking back, and mostly after having “fought” back or got back on our feet when we could, we would have always got up wiser and stronger. By the grace of God.

We will always be in broken situations. No two ways about it. But I have also come to learn that the Spirit in us is what will revive and re-energise us. If we call on It with all our heart! Praise God that He is always here for us. He is the potter. We are His clay. He is continuously forming us. We should be grateful we are always in His hands. In His hands! How wonderful that is! How marvellous!

Christmas Family Service

24 Dec 2019
For the first time in years, St Hilda’s held an evening Christmas Eve Family Service at Bethel Hall. The hall was almost filled to capacity filled with children, parents and grandparents.

It was a joyous chaotic affair, but everyone, including the children, enjoyed themselves thoroughly.

It was a church family come to life, to the glory our Lord Jesus!

A Thanksgiving: Psalm of Praise.

29 Dec 2019

As we reflect on 2019, I give thanks to God our Father for His unfailing love. There were moments of joy, challenge, pain, sadness, worries, frustration. Through them all He never let go of our hands although at times we felt He was not with us.  And we can only say and exclaim Hallelujah! praising and singing:

You are forever in my life
You see me through the sessions
covering me with Your hand and
leading me in Your righteousness.

We look to You and we wait on You.
For You carry us in Your everlasting arm and will never let us go.

In whatever situation and circumstance, we are encouraged is that Only in Christ alone is there contentment.  As I end my annual reading of Psalms, Psalm 147 is one of the concluding Doxology.  It sets forth the praise of God in the following three parts:

Praise the Lord: How delightful! How fitting!
– We praise God for his work of restoration.  He restores broken hearts, broken bodies and broken relationships. He always shows up in our lives. He stands at our door waiting to receive us in His embrace. He wants to restore us to the well-being that he created us to live in.  He showed up in Jesus who took and bore our iniquities and transgressions; removing our “pains”. We exclaim Hallelujah!
There is no more grief as when I surrendered all to him.  There is no injustice when I was reconciled to Him. He who bought Peace into our Hearts and Minds.

– We praise God for His creation.   God our Father knows us intimately. His understanding is beyond our comprehension.  He knows us in our sadness, our worries, our pains, our cry, our joy – waiting to receive us.
He fixed me my brokenness and all I needed was to cry out “Abba Father”.

– We praise God for His support. God supports the defenceless and frustrates the wicked.  God supports the afflicted and humbles the wicked.  The Lord supports those who live in keeping with his ways.
He supported me when I turned to Him with a contrite heart, seeking him in humility and willingness to be discipled.  He is a compassionate God! An important life principle: it is all about God dealing with me not about God dealing with others.
