Sunday Reflection

Thank you Lord God for the joy of writing and connecting with people through the community of bloggers here on WordPress. I pray that in the coming week you would bless my readers, inspire them in their creative endeavours, and help them to be productive each day while having joy in their hearts.

I pray for freedom from any fear or anxiety about the week ahead for every person reading this post, and that Your peace would fill their bodies, minds, and spirits each and every day this week. May they wake up on Monday morning with energy and enthusiasm and a heart set on spiritual things; a desire to learn and grow, and to serve, as the week unfolds. Amen.


Friends, your prayers have meant a lot to me this week. My medical review on Wednesday went really well. The doctor tested my blood pressure, which he said was really good, and generally expressed no worry or concern about my health. Praise the Lord!

My housing meeting was scheduled for Friday, but this was cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances on the part of one of the attendees, so this will either be rescheduled or conducted over the phone or in writing. Miraculously, my anxiety over this assessment has dissipated a lot, and over the last couple of days I’ve felt a great deal of peace.

The situation with my neighbour is much improved. Although he still plays music loudly for a few hours most afternoons, I do not feel any significant hostility between us.

I have found great joy in getting up early (around 5am) and going for long walks in one of the parks near my flat. Yesterday I walked for around two hours, and in the crisp Autumnal sun it was really refreshing. I’m using the Health app on my phone to monitor my walking and have been doing around 10,000 steps a day, which is keeping the blood pumping!

I’ve also been working on my music project, and the next song I’ll be releasing (on December 10th) will be a worship song. It’s quite different to my other releases, more acoustic rather than electronic, and I’m really pleased with how the creative process is unfolding.

How are you feeling about the coming week? Let me know in the comments!

Peace and blessings,

Steven x

  1. Glad to hear that things are going well of late, Steven. And thank you for the very considerate prayer on behalf of your fellow bloggers. I’m sure I speak for others when I tell you that your prayer is greatly appreciated. Praying God’s richest blessings upon you, as well.

  2. Thank you Stephen. I particularly appreciate your prayer about being free from anxiety, and I’m reminded of Philippians 4:6, 7. This coming week on Friday I’m due for an operation, and I’m encouraged by people’s prayers and visits. Adding to your prayer, I pray that the peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard your heart and the hearts of all who read your blog. Thank you for it. Praise be to the Lord our Father who watches over us and loves us.

    1. Praying that your operation goes really well, and I’m pleased to hear that you have prayer support and visitors to lift your spirits. Going into hospital can be an anxious time, but draw near to God and He will draw near to you – you’ll get through it! Peace and blessings, Steven πŸ™πŸ»

      1. Thank you for your encouraging words. My op is actually scheduled for Thursday. I don’t know why I put Friday. The Lord knows. Thankfully I am in His hands. There’s no better place to be.

  3. Great prayer Steven and that’s awesome to know how last week went for you! Prayer is such a powerful thing there is no doubt about it! Something to add to that is physical health and how that can also be good for our spiritual/mental health – Keep on walking dude, its great exercise and you get to experience nature and God often speaks in that. Your smashing it.

    I am feeling hopeful this week, and determined to put some spiritual disciplines in place that will be really helpful for where I want to be and for where I feel like God is pointing to at the moment. Thanks for asking. Peace 2 you

    1. Hey Evad! Always really appreciate your comments, bro! Thank you for your kindness. Will say a prayer specifically about your week and the spiritual disciplines you’re looking to employ. Hope that goes really well, buddy. Keep in touch and have a great week πŸ™‚

  4. Thank you for your prayers. I’m so glad you are feeling good and at peace. Glad your neighbor is being nice. Wonderful news. I feel good about the coming week. I’m starting a new painting and I love being with my mom.

    1. Hi Belle! Wonderful, I hope I’ll get to see your painting when it’s finished! πŸ™‚ Great that you will be spending some quality time with your mum, too. Peace and blessings, Steven πŸ™πŸ»
