Unveiling The Hidden Beauty Of Your Heart

Month: December 2015

Books I read in 2015 

  
For 2015 one of my goals was to read two books per month. Unfortunately I did not achieve that goal, I only read 13 books. But for 2016  I will aim to read two per month.

Reading has opened up my mind to how other people live, their experiences and how God can use people to bless others with their gift of writing.

I currently have quite a few books on my kindle to read as well as paper copies, so I aim to complete my goal for 2016. 

If you cannot afford to buy books then join your local library, it’s free!!!!

4. It increases your vocabulary

5. It aids memory improvement 

6. It Improves your analytical skills

7. Improves focus and concentration

8. Better writing skills

A Thirsty Heart A Thirsty Soul.

                            

For I will give you abundant water for your thirst and for your parched fields……. Isaiah 44:3 (TLB)

we tend to associate thirst with lack of water. Have you ever considered that your heart or soul maybe thirsty. Our inner being tend to crave what we have not received like love, acceptance, care or nurture. We are thirsty souls.
In this scripture God promised to pour water on any one that is thirsty and flood wilderness areas of your life with what you need. 

Our thirsts tend to have roots in our childhood and what we did or did not receive from our parents. God is able to pour water in those areas and water those untendered roots.

Take a moment and let him know where you thirst. Tell him. I do it all the time and he pours his water always.
