Doubting and Believing

Don’t be afraid of doubt. OK, it may feel like a threat, but you can also treat it as a tool to help you dig down to the solid ground of your real faith. I'm avoiding the adjective “true”, because it’s so often used in a negative way. “True Faith” (note the capitals) implies a set of beliefs that we have and they don’t. My real faith consists of the things I believe deep down, and those beliefs have been tested again and again – by doubt.

Footprints

As we grow older, consider this – it’s OK to leave footprints that people may choose to follow, but it's not OK to leave holes that people will feel obliged to fill. That’s the difference between management and leadership. It’s the difference between commanding and inspiring. It’s the difference between taking and giving.

Heartfelt Prayer

We live in a world that expects us to project an image – and, for many people, their image comes out of the wardrobe.  We spend so much of our life trying to fulfil a role that we easily lose sight of who we really are.  Do you want to pray from your heart?  You’d best start by discovering what’s in your heart.
