God never sleeps

Posted on

God never sleeps. An amazing thought. Whatever the time He is there. He is awake and watching over His children.

What brought this to my mind? Well I am just about to get ready for bed. After all it is almost 11pm Saturday night and tomorrow morning I want to be wide awake for church. As I prepare to go to bed I realised that our Christian House Sitters membership are in a very wide variety of time zones. We have house sitters in Australia and New Zealand who are no doubt getting up and getting themselves ready for church even as I prepare to go to bed. To them it is already tomorrow. We also have house owners and house sitters in America. To them it is still early Saturday evening. Way to early to be thinking of bed.

This realisation was reinforced by the fact that I know most mornings when I turn on my computer I will have messages from members who live down under. These were sent while I was sleeping.  Messages I send to our members in the USA and Canada only get opened much later in the day.

All different yet every one is precious to God.

I am so glad He never slumbers nor sleeps.



About housesitters

ABOUT Christian House Sitters Christian House Sitters is a Worldwide ministry that started in order to provide holidays for Christians and sitters for owners who needed a reliable Christian to look after their home, pets and garden. House owners do not pay anything to have their property listed. House sitters are only charged £25 per year and in return for this some enjoy numerous holidays each year. All fees from membership go to sponsor food for children at the Home of Peace Children’s Home in Kenya. This only supplies about a quarter of what is needed to feed the children so we urgently need sponsors. All funds go via our Registered Charity TLC Children’s Trust Charity Number 1156786 website N.B. Joining Christian House Sitters does NOT commit you to sponsoring a child or giving any support beyond your membership fee to these children. Although naturally if you want to support that would be greatly appreciated. We have some regular sponsors and other people who give an occasional gift. All are greatly appreciated. ABOUT RAY & MARILYN We are Marilyn & Ray White. A fun loving Christian couple who have been in Christian work for over 30 years. Marilyn was born in England but moved to Zimbabwe as a baby. At the age of 16 she moved to South Africa. Ray was born in South Africa and grew up on a farm. We met in Johannesburg and got married in 1966. Ray worked in business for many years then he worked for YfC in South Africa then went on to Bible College and Pastored a church. In 1982 we moved from South Africa to England. In addition to his theological training Ray trained in Psychology and since moving to the UK he has lectured in Psychology, counselled for the NHS and opened a Christian Counselling Centre. Marilyn is also a trained counsellor and manager. In addition to the counselling we trained Christian counsellors both in our local area and by invitation in other areas of the UK. In total over 700 people completed the training courses. Many are serving the Lord by working in or through their local churches. We also ran a secular Stress Management business. We are now semi-retired and focus our time and attention on Christian House Sitters and Ray also serves as a member of our Church Leadership Team. Ray also has an active preaching ministry and runs Christian seminars on subjects such as stress management for church groups. He has written two books. A Christian book that is a very practical workbook on Christian commitment as applied to real life. The book looks at how we can surrender ourselves more fully to God. This is looked at under the headings of Physical, Mental, Social and Spiritual commitment. The book is called Let’s Get Serious. He has also written a secular book on Stress Management called Stress Overcoming this Potential Killer. (Ray was previously Chair of the International Stress Management Association UK). News Update This book has now been released as an e-book as well A few years ago we did a 2 month House Sit in France. Whilst there we felt the Lord leading us to set up a Christian House Sitting service. Since then we have done a number of other house sits. We believe this site will benefit many Christians around the world.

  2. Hi Joelle,
    Yes we do have houses in the USA but naturally the list of houses is constantly changing.
    New owners register their houses and existing listings find sitters.
    Even I have no idea what will be on the site in 24 hours time.
    The answer is to register as a house sitter that way you are notified immediatly by email whenever a new house is listed.
    You can also then login anytime you like and look through the available houses.
    Finally house owners will be able to see your details and may contact you directly
    Just go to the site and you will find all the registration details.
