The Art of Saying Grace

When I became a Christian, I often pondered the following question:-

What should my life look like now I have been born again?

Beyond the attending of a Sunday service, I had no idea what a Christian lifestyle looked like!  Trying to figure this out can be a confusing time.  Of course, the Bible holds the answers to this and any other questions that we may have, however, finding these answers can take a considerable amount of time, as many long-term Christians will attest to.  The questions will never stop coming as we journey through our earthly life and we must never stop seeking the answers.  It is likely that the point of our conversion is the time we question most in our Christian lives as we look at our lives and the changes we must make and make them we must.  As Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians 5:17 “therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”  Our old self is gone, we are a new creation and this new creation must be different from the old, as Paul explains, Colossians 3:7-10 “You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived. But now you must also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips.  Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.”

Paul explains to us why it is important that we show our new selves to those around us, 2 Corinthians 5:20 “We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.” We are ambassadors for Christ!  This is at once a huge blessing and a huge undertaking.  Working for Christ, we must always seek to glorify His name and lead others to His kingdom. 

This may seem daunting but bear in mind that this role is different for everyone, for some, the change is significant and almost instantaneous, we hear of incredibly violent prisoners becoming gentle giants overnight,  of drug dealers immediately turning from a life of crime, however, for others, the change is very small but slow and steady.  What is important is that others see the difference, that others see God through you.  Perhaps month by month you drink a little less alcohol, perhaps week by week you swear less or day by day you become a little more selfless.  So have a look at your life and ponder the changes you could make. 

One of the first things I decided to implement in my life was the act of saying grace before meals.  When I did some research on the internet about this subject, I found that worldwide, people of many religions and none say grace before meals, I have listed some examples below:-

Humanist Benediction – “For the meal we are about to eat, for those that made it possible, and for those with whom we are about to share it, we are thankful.”

Native American Thanksgiving:- “I’m an Indian.  I think about the common things like this pot.  The bubbling water comes from the rain cloud.  It represents the sky.  The fire comes from the sun, Which warms us all, men, animals, trees.  The meat stands for the four-legged creatures, Our animal brothers, Who gave themselves so that we should live.  The steam is living breath.  It was water, now it goes up to the sky, Becomes a cloud again. These things are sacred.  Looking at that pot full of good soup, I am thinking how, in this simple manner, The Great Spirit takes care of me.”

Hindu Blessing:- “May the Lord accept this, our offering, and bless our food that it may bring us strength in our body, vigour in our mind, and selfless devotion in our hearts for His service.”

Buddhist Blessing:- “Wisely reflecting, I use this food not for fun, not for pleasure, not for fattening, not for beautification, but only for the maintenance and nourishment of this body, for keeping it healthy, for helping with the Spiritual Life. Thinking thus, I will allay hunger without overeating, so that I may continue to live blamelessly and at ease.”

Muslim Blessing:- “Bismillah Al-rahman, Al-rahmin,” which means “I begin in the name of God most gracious and ever merciful.”

Isn’t it interesting that throughout the world people of all faiths are giving thanks for the food that they eat!  Saying grace before a meal allows us to humble ourselves before God and realise that all and any blessing we have is from God.  We may have grown the vegetables and prepared the meal but only through God has that been made possible, though we planted the vegetables, God created them, though we may have picked the vegetables from the ground, it was God that provided the rain in order that they would grow and the earth in which they were nourished.  Though we may have slaved in the kitchen for hours, it is only by God’s grace that we have the ability to prepare food and the utensils required to prepare and distribute our meals.  Giving thanks to God for this is only right!

Paul, the apostle, gave thanks to God before feeding all the men on the ship that he was travelling on, Acts 27:35 “After he said this, he took some bread and gave thanks to God in front of them all. Then he broke it and began to eat.” 

During one of Jesus’ miracles, in which He feeds over 5000 people with five loaves of bread and two fish, He gave thanks to God before serving them, Matthew 14:15-21  “As evening approached, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a remote place, and it’s already getting late. Send the crowds away, so they can go to the villages and buy themselves some food.  Jesus replied, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.” “We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish,” they answered.  “Bring them here to me,” he said.  And he directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people.  They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over.  The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.”

Again, following His resurrection Jesus, gave thanks before breaking bread with two of His followers, Luke 24:28-31 As they approached the village to which they were going, Jesus continued on as if he were going farther.  But they urged him strongly, “Stay with us, for it is nearly evening; the day is almost over.” So, he went in to stay with them.  When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it, and began to give it to them.  Then their eyes were opened, and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight.” 

Paul and Jesus have led by example in the art of saying grace.  If it is important to Jesus to give thanks to His Father, how much more so for us!

Paul further advises us to give thanks for everything in Ephesians 5:20 “always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” And Romans 11:36 “For from him and through him and for him are all things.  To him be the glory forever! Amen”  Everything we see, hear, taste, touch, smell and those that we can’t comprehend are from God and we must be thankful. 

By saying grace, we are giving thanks to our Creator, we humble ourselves before God, we acknowledge that without God, we are nothing and we have nothing.

It can be intimidating beginning to say grace in front of others, and if this is how you are feeling at the prospect begin by saying a simple form of grace in your head before eating.  You can continue in this fashion if this is what you are comfortable with.  It can be difficult to know what to say to begin with so I have given some examples  of Christian grace below but, of course, if you are comfortable, you can construct your own grace prayer:-

Moravian Dinner Prayer

Come, Lord Jesus, our guest to be

And bless these gifts

Bestowed by Thee.

And bless our loved ones everywhere,

And keep them in Your loving care.

Amen.

Catholic Grace

Bless us, O Lord, and these
thy gifts which we are about
to receive from thy bounty,
through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Bénedic, Dómine, nos et haec
tua dona quae de tua largitate sumus sumpturi.
Per Christum  Dóminum nostrum. Amen.

Funny Form of Grace

Please Lord, bless this food, and then bless it some more.

We know it needs your blessing because we have eaten here before!”

Author Unknown

Our dear Heavenly Father,

We thank thee for this food.

Feed our souls on the bread of life,

And help us to do our part in kind words and loving deeds.

We ask in Jesus’ name.

Scottish, Selkirk Grace

Some hae meat and canna eat,
And some wad eat that want it.
But we hae meat, and we can eat,
Sae let the Lord be thankit.

Creative Christianity

You may remember me writing about a Creative Christianity Summit I attend online this summer!  It was organised by Menekse Stewart who owns Cheerfully Given, an online store which sells Christian jewellery, stationary, homeware and crafting materials.

This summit literally changed my life!!  Were it not for this summit I would not be writing this blog now as I simply would not have had the confidence.  Prior to the course I did not believe I was capable of anything remotely artistic.  I thought creativity was for those who attended art classes or designed graphics for a living.  This course not only removed this false impression from my mind but replaced it with an astounding reality … wait for it!!!:-

Everyone is creative!!!

Yes, absolutely everyone!! I know many of you are shouting at me right now saying “No way, I am absolutely hopeless!”, “Yeah Right, My 2 year old child paints a better picture than I do” or “you want a word with my school art teacher and he will set you straight on that one!”

Bear with me … remember I thought like you too!!  What does Scripture say?  Let us look at the very first page, in fact let us look at the very first words, Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”  God is a creative!!  Now let us look a little further on, Genesis 1:27 “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.”  When we say we are not creative, either we doubt the creativity of God, and thus, doubt Scripture itself or we doubt that we are made in the image of God, and thus, doubt Scripture itself!!!  The truth is we are God’s image bearers and God is creative, we can see that all around us!  Therefore, we are all capable of creating!  

If I needed further evidence of the diverse nature of creativity then this was consolidated by those involved in the summit, as many areas of creativity were catered for.  Creativity is not merely painting pictures but is in everything we do!! Our lives are one long string of creativity.   

Before I speak a little about crafting, let me introduce you to just a few of the guests and what I learned from them.

First up we had a daily sermon from Paul Blackham who is a minister in London.  Paul’s creative talent lies in his delivery of the Word of God.  He truly brings the Bible to life.  His love for Jesus is so evident and his enthusiasm is something to be envied.  I learned so much from his sermons but perhaps the most important was that Jesus needs to be everything in your life.  Jesus wants to be your identity and will accept nothing less.  Jesus wants everything or nothing!  We read this in Scripture, but do we live it in our day to day lives!?  Luke 14:25-27 “Large crowds were traveling with Jesus, and turning to them he said: “If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters-yes, even their own life-such a person cannot be my disciple. And whoever does not carry their cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.”  Being a Christian means being a Christian first and foremost.  When someone asks “Who are you?”, you answer “I am a follower of Jesus” or “I am a Child of God”, not “I am a Mum”, “I am a student”, “I am a vegan”, “I’m Scottish”, “I’m a Man U Fan”.  These things will all pass away, they can be taken from us at any time!  Christ can never be taken from us, not in life, nor in death.   Athanasius, Bishop of Alexandria,  made this point abundantly clear “The only system of thought into which Jesus Christ will fit is the one in which He is the starting point.”  Jesus comes first! Everything must fit in with Jesus, we cannot try and manipulate Jesus to fit in with everything else in our lives!  

A Life Coach named Breeny Lee reaffirmed to me the need to do everything for the glory of God.  That one cannot be one person in one situation and another somewhere else.  As a representative of Jesus, we must bring honour to Him in the way that we behave, and this should not be affected on where we are or who we are with!

Thea Muir described how she manages her negative thoughts by removing the negative cassette tape from her mind, placing this at the cross and replacing it with a Godly thought cassette tape.  I find this imagery helpful in my ongoing battle with negativity!  Thea began doodling as a way of tuning in to the positive affirmations of Scripture and there are many for us to find, all helpful tools to developing a positive mindset.

Kathryn Hitchings spoke about the flow zone which is fabulous for people struggling with mental health problems.  This is a place of creativity when you are not really thinking about anything, just being, living in the moment.  Another inspiring message was that untaught naïve art can be the most beautiful!

Martha Shrimpton of Nimbus Collective emphasised the importance of a relationship with God.  I think we can often get too bogged down with the religious side of our faith, studying the Word, praying religious prayers but not ever just being with God.  It is important for us to be still with God, write with Him, journal with Him, create pictures in worship to Him, have a coffee and chat with Him.

Jonathan Self made me look at everything differently.  He makes photography look simple!  I had never thought of cooking tea as creating before, yet Jonathan made a simple kitchen image of utensils etc look beautiful! This inspires me to take a closer look around me, to look at God’s creation with wonder instead of complacency. 

I love this quote by Josie Gambel that says, “if a dream doesn’t scare you then it’s not big enough!”  This is because we are not dreaming, really, we are just imagining what we could realistically achieve!  When we dream of doing something that terrifies us then we are admitting we are not capable … but we are with Christ … Philippians 4:13 “I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”

We are all unique and therefore there cannot be a one size fits all rulebook to Christianity.  Not all of us are capable of sitting for 5 hours a day reading Scripture or 4 hours a day deep in prayer.  With creative Christianity, there is something for everyone!  For those with active minds, Bible journaling or doodling is a fantastic way to explore Scripture whilst relaxing our minds.  Young children may get a deeper understanding of the Bible through painting!    

It was at this summit where I first heard of Sermon Notes!  This is a fantastic idea for those who have wandering thoughts in church!  As the preacher is speaking draw the main idea of the sermon in the middle of your page and work out from there.  Add verses, words or drawings, anything that consolidates the sermon for you.  Put lines or patterns around the words and thoughts so they do not get jumbled.  You can also use an iPad and procreate for this.  You can draw this in pencil at church and colour when you get home.  This is a great way of remembering the teaching and being able to look back at it in the future.  One lady uses paints at her church!

Another way of doing this is at home using a passage of the Bible.  I love doing this as it helps me memorize my Scripture and keeps me focussed on the verse.  Begin by measuring out the paper carefully with a ruler so that your lettering is evenly spaced out.  Write the verse out initially in pencil and when you are happy that everything is in place, go over with a brush pen.  You can decorate a frame around the outside of your lettering with flowers for example.  

For Sermon Notes and Simple Hand Lettering you may need:-

Pens or crayons  

Pencil

Felt Tip Brush Pens

Ruler

Pointy paintbrushes

Water colour palette

Water

Kitchen roll

Paper or Notebook

Esther Thorpe of Origami Est demonstrated how to make an Origami diamond.  For a complete novice this was very manageable.  You will find origami videos on You Tube if this is something that interests you:-

For Origami you may need:-

Paper Square – You will require some of the same size

Glue

Coloured Paper

Scrapbooking Paper

Wrapping Paper

Bible Journaling is extremely popular and a great way of consolidating your Scripture.  You read a passage of your Bible and then make a relevant design either at the side of the writing (if there is a blank section for this) or you can colour the whole page with water colours.   The most important aspect to this is spending time in God’s presence and learning the Word of God.  You will get lots of great ideas online for this.      

For Bible Journaling you may need:-

Journaling Bible – some people find the thought of drawing over their Scripture too much to bear so in this case, you can use a notebook or paper.

Paints

Watercolour

Pencils, pens, crayons  

Glue

Scissors

Brush Pens

Magazine cut outs

Clear gesso to prepare Bible pages

Watered down poster paint

Ephemera

Washi Strips

Stickers

Stamps

Shakers – You make these by placing some sequence and a small card with a verse or aspirational saying on it inside transparent cellophane (I keep these when I get items delivered inside them) and secure it together and secure it to the page with Washi Strips.

Tip-ins – You make these with a piece of card (could be an old greeting card) and you fasten this to your page with Washi Strips.  This provides additional space for more creating!!

For Creative Photography – All you need is:-

A camera or phone

Your imagination

Many men reading this may think this creativity talk is for girls but that is certainly not the case.  There are plenty of other creative pursuits for men if nothing above appeals.  You could try sketching, creating furniture, learning to play an instrument, gardening or decorating.  There is no limit to creativity.

Craft Materials can be expensive so it is important to upcycle what you can, collect a stash in your home which can become your go to box of tricks when you are feeling crafty.  I collect cellophane, greeting cards, glass jars, cardboard, wrapping paper (you never know when it will come in useful!).  You will find a great supply of craft materials on Amazon, Hobbycraft, Cheerfully Given and Etsy. 

You Tube has many how to videos for lots of different creative pursuits.  The most important thing to remember is that you can do it.  It is not about whether your painting will hang in the Louvre, it is about whether your Father in Heaven likes what he sees and whether it brings Him glory.  The importance is in the time spent with Jesus and the peace and enjoyment that you get from switching off from the busines of life and relaxing! 

Just give it a go today! I am sure you will surprise yourself!

Always Remember, Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Happy Crafting!

Love and Blessings

Book Recommendations

When I first came to faith, I filled bookcase upon bookcase with Christian Literature.  I just could not get enough!  I was about 38 years old and I felt as though I had 38 years of not being a Christian to make up for!!! I began reading the Good News Bible, then I read about Paul the Apostle before discovering John Stott who I found most helpful.  Below, I have made a list of books that I have rated 4 or 5 stars on Goodreads.  Some I read a long time ago, some very recently.  I have tried to divide them into different categories, however, it is sometimes the case that a book could have slid into a few categories or that a book is probably on the outer edge of that particular category but that is where I found it rested best.  For anyone living close to me, you would be so welcome to borrow any of my books, for others, you could try a local library, or there are some charity shops which stock Christian material.  Another option is looking at second-hand versions online.  Many of mine are preloved and still in great condition! Some may be reasonably priced new and others slightly more expensive. 

I pray that you uncover the same enthusiasm for Christian Literature that I did.  Please do not be put off if you read the occasional book that does not resonate with you at all or that you find to be doctrinally wrong.  This is inevitable if you are going through books like I did!  Just read carefully, always checking Scripture references and reading your Bible alongside.  If a book does not feel right, just put it down and start another one.  There is such a wealth of Christian Literature that it is inevitable some will be doctrinally unsound, so just use your God given wisdom to seek out the truth from the lies.

Happy Reading!!  

Love and Blessings

Lastly, just a few extras.

Recently I have found the book of Common Order to be useful for prayers.  When you just do not know what to say, you can have a look at this book and there are prayers for morning, evening etc.

Also, an interesting way to the read Scripture is The Books of the Bible (NIV).  Here the chapters and verses have been stripped away leaving the text more like the original Scriptures.  The headings and verses were added in the 1600s so they may lead us to interpretations that are not helpful.  Here, you can read, for instance, the letters of Paul as a complete letter which would have been received by the addressee!!

Have you two or three minutes to spare? Why not grab a cuppa, have a sit down and listen to some Scripture.

To begin with I am going to read various Parables of Jesus as an introduction into the Word of God. The Parables that Jesus told are stories from everyday life to get across a point that Jesus was trying to make. Have a listen and meditate on these verses. What do you think they are telling you? Can you think of any ways that you could practically live out these teachings in your day to day life?
