Last weekend Mrs Mindmap insisted that I go through my CD selection and get rid of at least ten albums. When she returned, I was surrounded by fifteen piles of CDs, each one with a specific genre. Thoughtful background music to help me concentrate; classic songs from my university years, music with lyrics that I [...]

On our last day off, Mrs Mindmap woke me up and announced that we were going on a walk to catch the last of the sunshine. It wasn’t exactly my idea for the day but seeing the steely determination on her face I agreed, and dressed for the outdoors. We took a route that we [...]
No. Adversity doesn’t create character, it only reveals it. It’s our decisions that creates the change! I hate the squeeze, but God uses it to reveal what’s actually inside of us. Once diagnosed, it’s our decisions that decides whether we change or whether we stay the same or go backwards.
I’ve been thinking recently about gifting. It seems to me that the world’s mindset is obsessed with talent. TV is full of dance competitions and singing competitions, and our whole education system is geared towards training skills and abilities to make people more employable. With all this highly developed talent, you’d think we’d be happy [...]
If you take away our spirits and our ability to be self-aware, we’re very much LIKE the Animal Kingdom. We have inbuilt instincts that are hardwired within our Minds for the Survival of the Species.
We have sexual instincts, Hunger instincts, a Pack instinct and an instinct for Safety!
When these instincts cross lines of [...]
You don’t have to train a kid to be bad! You don’t get tempted to give more to Oxfam. You don’t get tempted to look for Monasteries on the internet. Our Minds emerge within us with a bias like a bowling ball. It’s a bias towards self protection, self reliance, self centeredness and self promotion.
Your Soul is tucked in between your Mind and your Heart. It’s emotionally led and contains your Personality and all the Personas you’ve adopted.
How do you free your Soul? How do you get to it? How do you change ‘the way you are’?
By changing the Heart and changing the Mind, New Convictions seep from the [...]
Our brains are habit forming! Do something for 70 days and you can develop a new habit that’s hard to break. The habit of staying upright on a bicycle is hard to break once you’ve ‘got’ it. The habit of smoking, explosions of anger, patience and rubbing your hands together can be both created and [...]
There’s three parts to life:-
Part 1 – What happens to you
Part 2 – What happens through you
Part 3 – What happens in you
You can’t directly change what happens to you, unless you’ve provoked it by hitting someone, being a lazy beaver or telling someone you don’t like them! You can change the other [...]

- Beauty For Ashes April 7, 2013‘What do you think people think when they see you?’ Most people have no idea of where we’ve each come from and where we’re going. All they see is a snapshot - a photograph – no perspective and no background. With snapshots, all we can do is categorize them. In doing so, we all become a little judgemental. For example when we see someone a little overweight, […]
- My Brand New Jacket – Reinvinting You April 6, 2013Dave Gilpin is sporting his brand new jacket and has his reinventing hat on. Preaching live in Sheffield on our First Fruits Offering Sunday Dave encourages us to make a start on the future we believe belongs to us. Changing an attitude, making a shift in direction or investing some time towards it prophesies over your future. Don't despise the day of s […]
- Footprints In The Sand – Revisited March 18, 2013Most Christian homes have one. It’s either found on a mug, a fridge magnet or in the bathroom! Can you guess what it is yet? It’s a copy of ‘Footprints in the Sand’. I’ve decided that even though it’s the most popular piece of Christian literature outside of the Bible itself, it’s a sacred cow and I don’t like it. […]
