200 words on Mrs T.

Ephesians 6: 14-17

In 1976 our country could not provide power for more than three days in a row, our rubbish entombed us and even our dead could find no rest. We had been forced to beg the IMF for funds and trade unions had brought down one out of two democratic government.

Who would pick take up the shield of faith and the sword of the Spirit and fight for the UK?  

Mrs T.

Mrs T first battle was with the unions, they had taken down government before but she was not for turning, she had the stomach for the fight.  Handbag in hand at the Battle of Orgreave she destroyed the N.U.M. and the dictatorial powers of the union barons.

She then had to defend British sovereignty; her first battle was over the Falklands, her second was against the USSR and her third was against a federal EU.  Two out of 3 is not bad.

Lastly she had to save British plc, she did this by empowering people to own homes, buy shares, start companies and trade internationally or even buy foreign currency.  She is responsible for the modern free Britain we all know

Morning prayer - lost sheep

Lord I don’t speak as you would have me
I don’t speak out of fear of rejection
I don’t speak for fear of mockery
I don’t because I worry I may lose my faith in you.

I have seen other lose the light you gave them lord
I have seen them reject your holy grace
Am I so different?
I am so strong compared to those?
Am I lost sheep in waiting?

Yes I know you would never stop loving me
Yes I know you would never stop pursuing me
But what If I stopped loving you?
What if I ran from you lord?

My faith must be weak – I have these doubts
My faith must be small for I fear losing it
My faith must be useless for it has brought no one to you lord

See Lord I art weak and they art mighty
I am faithless and they art eternally faithful  
I am worthless they art beyond worth

So if you have some time keep an eye on me lord
Keep your hand on my shoulder
Keep your spirit in me
Don’t let me lose your herd
Don’t let your light go out in me

Do this for your love of me
Do this in your endless mercy
Do this because your strength never fails
Do this please lord
Do this
