It’s amazing how God has brought us together as one in just three months. Although It was not always sunny but through all the challenging circumstances, it was His awesome presence in the CENTER of our lives, that we have both grown from strength to strength. Above all, it is such a joy to be able to impart this same experience to our children so that they too, can soar for victory to victory with Christ in the CENTER of their lives. To be able to reap the fruits of His labour of what we put in His hands is really a blessing far beyond!
It’s a simple question, but it can be tough to answer.
Literally it sounds like, “How has your talking to God been lately?” Emotionally it might feel like, “Sum up your relationship with God at this point in your life.” Bible reading, by comparison, is clearer and more “objective.” How many pages? How far along in your plan? Which books have you been reading? What have you learned? Prayer doesn’t fit into an Excel sheet quite as easily.
Personally 2017 was mostly a challenging year.
During those times which can seem overwhelming, I held on Philippians 4:6-7.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
In this verse I found tangible, definitive steps to attain comfort and importantly peace that is above all understanding. I acknowledge my challenges, and may even plead in despair, but I know I'm not alone.
Robert Cleaver Chapman tried his best to be forgotten, but God intervened on our behalf.
An unusually humble man, Chapman would have been pleased if you haven’t heard of him — and most Christians haven’t. And he would have likely protested my drawing your attention to him here. But I’m doing it anyway because I know you’ll be the richer for knowing him. And I doubt he minds now, having lived in heaven for nearly 120 years.
We want to give thanks to our God, Jesus Christ for answering our prayers. His timing is perfect and His plans are always good.
After 7 years of marriage, God blessed us with our firstborn. Our baby has been such a joy and a blessing to us and many around him. God touched my heart one day and spoke so clearly to me. He asked me, “How desperate are you for Me to answer your prayer..?” And that was when I prayed so desperately like Hannah from the Bible. We conceived the following month.
God answers as we are obedient and trust Him fully! We pray that you will be blessed by this testimony and if you are asking God for something you know is in His plan, have faith and keep pressing on. His grace is sufficient for YOU!
2017 was a emotional year for us .. went through lots of hard times ,grief, disappointments, but it was also one of the best years ever.. we experienced a different level of growth, joy ,peace, favour, boldness and breakthrough! Going into 2018 with more battle scars, more humility , but greater gratitude, hope and love. We serve a great God
One of the great rediscoveries of the Reformation — especially of Martin Luther — was that the word of God comes to us in the form of a book, the Bible. Luther grasped this powerful fact: God preserves the experience of salvation and holiness from generation to generation by means of a book of revelation, not a bishop in Rome.
Through every trial and pain, I know He is in every situation. He is in every season. Through it all, He is in control. His goodness and grace will always be enough for me. His love is everlasting, His peace is overwhelming. This is my loving Father, my friend who watches over me. For this I know, He is sovereign and His kingdom will come, His will be done.

We exalt You and praise Your name. Through our ups and downs You have been so faithful to us, listening to our prayers and providing for all our needs. You are always there for us. “Lord, You are my God; I will exalt You and praise Your name, for in perfect faithfulness You have done wonderful things, things planned long ago.”
