Psalm 105:1-2

Give thanks to the Lord, call on His name; make known among the nations what He has done. Sing to Him, sing praise to Him; tell of all His wonderful acts.

God displays his glory through signs and wonders, answers to prayer and giving us the courage to step out.
It is important to acknowledge and give thanks for all the blessings he showers on us.
God is interested in every part of our lives.
Here are some of our God stories…

From S.T.R. April 2019

At 18, I was uncertain what to do with my life.I had not made the grades to study Forestry at Edinburgh University. I had looked at about four other options and considered retaking my A levels, to get higher grades for Radiography. I tried all resources. I was a church goer, but I did not know Jesus, as my Saviour. I opened a local newspaper, in 1987 and an advert about studying trees, really spoke to my heart. I love trees. Before I had even seen High Wycombe, I was on the course in my heart. It was 4-5 weeks before the course started.I then moved to High Wycombe and attended the course.

A few years ago. I had a very strong desire to visit Bucks College again and about  2 years ago, I was googling Geoff Livingstone, the Head of department. I couldn’t find the timber department or this man anywhere. A year ago, before The Walk of Witness, I prayed specifically, that God would put me in the path of someone to talk to. Helen and Russell were talking about teaching with a man, this man mentioned he was a Timber Engineering lecturer, now retired. I asked him if he knew Bucks College, in High Wycombe. He said he taught there. I asked him his name. It was Barry Matthews. I told him he had taught me.

So, I found out 31 years after starting that course, that I had a Christian lecturer, who was praying for me. 23 years later I got saved. God has a plan for each one of us, even when we don’t know him. God answers our prayers, even if it takes a while and sometimes we may not even know. Thank you Lord.

I went through a recent bout of anxiety. This really made me cry out to God in frustration for this needless episode. One evening that week, I slept terribly, but I had a dream. In it, I saw a 3D photo of myself smiling as if posing for a photo. Beside it, were my frustrations, complaints and prayers to God, written in my own handwriting. However, written in someone else’s handwriting, were the words ‘but there is power in the name of Jesus.’ Immediately, the anxiety left me and I was filled with the peace and love of God. The Lord heard my cries, noted my frustrations and complaints, and answered with the power that is in his most loved son, Jesus. God hears and answers the prayers of all his children. He always gets the final word over everything in our lives.

From A.P. March 2019

“When I heard of this man’s condition from my boss, I felt God say clearly to me ” what are you going to do about this Adrian?”  I felt God wanted me to go and lay hands on this man  immediately in the intensive care unit at Hinchingbrooke Hospital. This I did with much fear and trembling  and kept saying to myself ,” what on earth am I doing, I hardly know the man!” He had been in a coma for three weeks and had not much hope of survival but I spoke int his ear the words of Jesus in Mark 16: 17 & 18. Two days later he sat up in bed and started to take on fluids! He is now back at work with us – praise God!”

From R.B. March 2019

“Monday was a tough day – I was exhausted and full of pain. I managed to get Daniel to school but then came home and had to rest all day. Resting didn’t seem to make much difference but I got through the day and got the boys to their clubs. My the end of the day I was quite frustrated and fed up. Tuesday morning was the same but I couldn’t face being home alone again. I prayed God would give me strength to get to the staff meeting.
At the end of the meeting Barry asked how I was and prayed for me. I gradually felt better – the pain eased and I had more energy. Praise God! I stayed most of the day! God is so good.
There are so many times God has given me supernatural energy and strength – on a Sunday Youth, every Friday night with the Youth to name a few.”
