Weekly letter to the apprentices

From Stephen Manhanga

Isaiah 55:8
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.”

As I continue from last weeks thoughts along the lines of trusting and putting our trust in God. This scripture stands out for me. Alot has happened in the last week. We have fought many battles, faced much opposition and some have even given up. As I said last week, the race is not won by the swift or the battle by the strong but by God’s spirit.

We need to remember God’s ways are not our ways. His thoughts are not our thoughts. We cannot think that if we do things in our own strength or ability we will succeed.

I hope this poem will inspire you

“How often we wish for another chance
To make a fresh beginning
A chance to blot out our mistakes and change failure into winning
And it does not take a new year to make a brand new start
It only takes the deep desire to try with all our heart
To live a little better and to always be forgiving, to add a little
‘Sunshine’ to the world in which we’re living, so never
Give up in despair and think that you are through, for
There’s always a tomorrow and a chance to start anew.”
