Making sandwich wraps with Beeswax


Diane Campbell and myself thought we'd have a go at making our own Beeswax wraps, here's the proof that we did.

Here's how you make them:

You need some nice fabric, 35cm x 35cm (or whatever size you want) beeswax, non-stick baking paper, iron and old towel. Put the towel on the bench, put a sheet of paper on the towel, then your fabric, scatter over the wax, another layer of paper and then iron until it melts. It'll take a couple of minutes to cool and then it's good to go. So easy.

Interesting things we talked about:

The Children of today are the superheroes of tomorrow

 Right now, there’s a generation being born and raised who face a world obsessed with self. They’re a part of the digital generation where life is lived out on cell phones and social media. They learn how to present a positive image online, but the reality is many of them are lonely, lost, and insecure. What are we supposed to do?  Without question,  the Lord wants you and me to be focused on reaching this next generation. They are important to God, and they should be important to us as well. 

Looking at Mark 10:13-16 in the NIV we know that Jesus puts value on investing time in the youth..."People were bringing little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them, but the disciples rebuked them.14 When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.15 Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”16 And he took the children in his arms,placed his hands on them and blessed them."

From this three things are evident;

First, Jesus has a special love for children. The disciples thought they were doing Jesus a favor by stopping these lively little kids from interrupting Him. But Jesus said, “No! The children are important to me.” Was He busy? Absolutely! But Jesus was never too busy to minister to a child.

 Secondly, Jesus wants young people to come to Him. While the disciples tried to push them away, Jesus called out, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them.” Now, it is right to urge adults into a relationship with Christ. But Jesus wanted us to remember that he wants the children to come to him, too. Jesus knew the future belonged to the children!

Finally, Jesus wants us to have a heart for the youth of our nation. Can we be like Jesus and see Children not as an interruption but a priority. And can we pray for them too. Start looking at those who are coming behind you and see them as Jesus sees them. Love them as Jesus loves them… and let the next generation be reached for Christ through us!  

The Lifefm Support drive kicks off next week and we are so excited about the testimonies our sister station is going to hear and share. Please could you spend a minute praying for the next generation. We believe that God uses our stations to impact the hearts and homes of so many New Zealanders and it is so cool that when we pary together God hears us and answers our prayers. Lord we ask that next week is full of your blessing, provision and encouragement.

 Your Rhema Verse of the Day:

1 thess 5 verse 16 to 17

"Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." From 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

This verse is sandwiched between 2 verses telling you to give thanks and rejoice. And Maybe it's as easy as that. When you put your hand on your car handle – thank God you have a car. When you brush your teeth = thank God you have healthy strong teeth

When you walk into work/university /school/ thank God for the chance to learn or earn. 

Today’s verse is brought to you by the Bible Society.
