Your Hindsight is God's Insight. What has God got in store for you?
Do you know God's plans for your life? I know it is something exciting and He uses everything for good.
Quick look back on some journeys I've had and a shared journey with my friend Linda Zupancic - our latest Author.
There’s an old Scottish saying, ‘If it’s for ye, it cannae go by ye.’ My dad was Scottish and my mother English, yet I can remember my mother quoting this a lot! For me, I think it is truer to read it as, ‘If God has it for ye, it cannae go by ye’ and the translation for us Sassenachs is ‘If God has it for you, it cannot go by you.’
Think about this for a moment, how many times have you been disappointed, disillusioned or discouraged about something that did not go your way?
God has a way of working in a different way in our lives. He has ambitions for us and pushes us to our individual limits, and provides ways for making great things happen.
You see our hindsight is God’s insight!

It leads me to ask the questions.
You remember many things about a wedding, but it is often not the preacher's address.
This Royal wedding was different and for me the one who stole the show was the Preacher, Bishop Michael Curry from the Episcopal Church, USA.
Why and how - listen the podcast.
Passion is the key and also staying True to Yourself. Could you do this in the presence of the Royal Family and the world's media?
Here is the link, mentioned in the podcast of Bishop Michael Curry's impassioned address.

Today, I’m talking about the learning curve and how important it is to enjoy each and every moment – no matter how frustrating they can be.
I don’t know about you, but I find that each time I start something new, I learned a little more until I get to a point when I think, “that's enough” and I’m happy to stay at that level and go no further.
Sometimes, I want to go all the way on the learning adventure and know as much as I can possibly learn about that subject. However, the learning curve is not always smooth. It goes in peaks and troughs and many times I want to give up.
Life is like this – a road of learning – each and every day. Life can be a puzzle and it feels that God wants us to learn the most unexpected things!
Learning is not just for Children!
Life has a way of teaching us all kinds of things!
Isn’t it great that God expects us to be the latter, regardless of our age? You see, God hasn't finished with us. As the Apostle Paul put it,
“He, God, has begun a good work in you and will continue to perfect it until Jesus Christ returns”.

Once more, I am using the Greatest Showman as my metophor and yes my tally of seeing this wonderful film at the cinema now totals 11 times! Each time I watch this movie or sing the songs, I learn something new and love it a little more. I’d go again tomorrow but it’s long run at the cinema has now concluded. I think special ones over the summer will continue especially outside viewings or sing-a-longs, so for me the appetite for further big screen viewings continue. Of course, the Blu Ray and DVD are just a few weeks away!
I am still talking to people about:
· the impact this film has made;
· how happy it leaves people feeling;
· its messages; and
· the wonderful songs and dance… I could continue.
The point I do make though is … it is not the true story of TF Barnum and if anything it only has a ‘ribbon of truth’ through it. I wonder how many take the film as accurate and ‘real’ because it is based on a real life (albeit arger than life) figure.
