New Blog Style & movings on

Yup, it's been 2 years so I thought it was definately time for a change. And though I vowed never to have a blog with pink in it again, yet here is the outcome.

I can't help it, I love this template! Check the link at the bottom of the page if you'd like it!

Anyhoo, as the post title suggests, I'm back off to Reading soon to start my General Primary PGCE. Another exciting step in my life that might possibly be the end of my education (and the beginning of others, mwa ha ha haaa!!)

But either way, I'm just very excited to know that this is where God wants me for this next year. He made it clear through prayer, bible meditation and by making the way straight for my application on the course. I was reminded and encouraged last week on a prayer and bible week in Hemel Hempsted that God's peace is the hallmark if you're walking with him and obeying him.

What an encouragement to know that God's peace that really does transcend all understanding accompanies you no matter where you are or what's going on. And it really has been a peace I can't understand from a human perspective, because so often I just want control, and yet God effectively says 'trust me, I know what I'm doing'.

Proverbs 3v5-6 remains one of my all-time favourtie verses, because of its preciseness, challenge and reassurance:

'Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.'

And the whole making your paths straight isn't about making everything peachy and grand, it's about knowing you're walking in his will for you, walking in his blessing, and walking closely with him. That's what gives you that peace.

So praise God for simple and amazing revelations, each and every day. Bring on Reading, and any of people are the Reading area, drop me a line or email so you can come visit or get food or something!



weird is just your own personal brand of normal

I hope you keep up the madness in Marefield....that's where you are living, right? All the best for the course, it will be hard but all things are possible through him who loves you! Big smiley etc also :-)
Don't feel too much of an outcast at Bulmershe. I always felt like starting up a small prayer meeting for PGCEers (who can feel a bit detached from other student life, I would know), but nobody has time for starting groups - but I hope you find some other christians on your course and can together be a light for those sharing in your tough year, and support each other in prayer. And I mean this to be encouraging, but you will have to depend on God! Which is good, right? :-)
I'll be in Reading sometime I don't doubt, hope to see you then

PS be a light to your schools also - you will meet lots of stressed people who need Jesus (I don't think Jesus is too keen on us being stressed - in fact I think he is pretty up on us resting from time to time, and taking life slowly and carefully and reverently). That peace you were talking about is the perfect cure, if only I had taken refuge in it more often (if only I would)
Sorry to take up your whole comments page!

why am I not surprised Cat! I'm working on it :P

And thanks Chris for the encouragement, I'm looking forward to holding the gospel out to the stressed teachers of the Reading schools!
