On Life’s Journey

A thought from Joseph, on life’s journey. When we walk through life we will come into contact with people who will make some fonn of impact to our lives.

From what can seem like the smallest of things like saying good morning each day to helping you daily with things in your life.

The trouble is, as I have come to realise, you can become so used to having people around you that you forget that they are helping you not out of duty, but out of love and support. Jesus tells us that He has our lives planned out for us; plans for us to prosper and grow as both individuals and as a church. Every single one ofus is special to Jesus and also to the people He has placed around us.

I was surprised to see just how little I can sometimes say a simple thank you to someone to show I appreciate them and the things they have done.

As you walk through your life, remember that the people you come into contact with not only impact your life in some way but you also have an impact on their life too.

Take a moment to think about all the people around you that have made a difference to your life and ask yourselfthis,

“Do they know how much I appreciate them?”

Life’s a journey- as you make a difference to those around you, remember they also are vital to you.

2018 a thought from our admins

Well 2018 is almost over and I can honestly say that this year seems to have flown by so fast I sometimes feel as though I missed half of it.

Since we launched Living Way Church Website we have spent more time changing its format, layout and even hosting every few Months right up until almost the end of 2017. For most of 2018 we haven’t made many changes to its layout and that’s partly a good thing and a bad one.

First the good, we switched to our current host Rubberduck Hosting and have had an up time of 99.9% and we have the lowest hosting fees ever. I have taken a bit of a break apart from the hours I spent for GDPR compliance (a nightmare law). We were able to concentrate on our Live-streams more considering we were the first Rhondda church to introduce this it’s nice to watch it grow.

Now the bad, because I’ve taken the break I know the site needs some changes to keep it modern and interactive and a place you guys want to visit.

To end 2018 we have a major update coming that unfortunately won’t affect anything you see when you visit however, I hope that these changes will help push this site forwards as we start 2019. Personally I would like to thank everyone who’s used our site and hope you enjoy the changes we have planned.

May you be blessed and have a truly Merry Christmas!!

March Book Review – Paul Tsika : The Overcomer’s Edge

The Overcomer’s Edge is all about looking at the very real struggles that all of us face in this life. Ranging from quitting to the feelings of frustration. Paul uses his experience and a biblical foundation to outline some keys on how to live a more victorious life in and through Christ.

Some of the topics are :

  • Overcoming the temptation to quit
  • Overcoming difficult relationships
  • Overcoming the fear of losing your dream
  • And the other 10….

Paul speaks from personal experience as someone who has been through these personally and also using his experience as a pastor, helping others to practically become overcomer’s in their lives.
