Don't believe everything you see on the news or read on social media. Yes, there are people fearful about political tensions and nuclear weapons, confusion about marriage and corrupt government leaders and football players who refuse to honour their national anthem. It’s all a bit sensational to me. We simply need to ignore the manipulation of the global news media networks and just get on with life and with helping people. We are living in testing times and it is so real for many families living on the land. The droughts of the past few years have not yet ended and times are tough for graziers and farmers across the nation. It’s time to start praying for these issues and not selfish humanistic trends that flood the airwaves and news broadcasts.

The Bible warns us these times would come so expect that they will and get on with the good work of representing the character and love of Christ to a lost and dying world. That’s our job. That's our calling. Don’t get sucked into the controversies and confusion. Keep Jesus at the top of your day and allow the Lordship of Christ to cover your circumstances. Then stuff will work out ok. Keep it real. Christ in you is your only hope of glory!

"Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, then all these things will be added unto you."
Matthew 6:33

Don’t ever give up on faith, hope and love… And the greatest of these is love. 

Keep loving people like Jesus does.

Godspeed,
