God is in the room – Lucy Mills – Christian Article

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push(); Last month I shared the following when I was leading the prayers at a church service; I thought it might be good to post it here as well. It will probably feed into some long term writing, but here’s a taster.

The Promise Of Wealth – Sam Adeyemi – Christian Article

Ecclezzia.com God promised Abram that he would become a great nation, make his name great and be a blessing.

What Matters Most for the New Year – Christian Article

Moving into a new year isn’t as simple as merely turning the page on a calendar. Sometimes, instead of an organized list of plans and goals the new year looks like a list of question marks. The things of life don’t always fall neatly into place with everything sorted and resolved according to our best laid plans.
