Fresh Hope – 17th February 2017

Joshua 1:9 ‘Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.’

Shannon Lucid broke the world record for time spent in space – 188 days up there!

When she was only 13, she told her teacher that she was going to be a rocket scientist. The teacher just laughed and said there was no such thing, and if there was, a woman couldn’t be one anyway.

Did you know that more than 150 people a year die from falling out of bed and a further 400 are injured by the head board falling on them? The truth is you’re not even safe by staying in bed, so you may as well get up and get going. Reach for God’s strength and do something to make your life count. Did you know that donkeys kill more people annually than plane crashes?

Famous Author, Max Lucado says, “instead of just building a fire in your hearth, build one in your heart.” Adopt a child, teach a class, change careers, run for parliament, make a difference. I know it may not sound safe, but what is?”

Jesus said, (Luke 9:24) For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it.

Reclaim the curiosity of your childhood.

Just because you may be near the top of the hill, doesn’t mean you are past your peak.

Get up and get going – God has amazing things in store for you today.
