Have you ever been so busy so much that you feel like you are cheating on God? Yes cheating!
You miss out on your bible study schedule, you miss and forget your prayer appointments, activities replace your date hours with Him? This is how I feel some days eg today. However, the good thing is that live is not about feelings and so because I love Him I will not let feelings hurt my heart walk and separate us, I receive His reminders in my spirit. If I dwell on the feeling it becomes a guilt trap of the enemy so I decide not to give it room but instead appreciate the consciousness of the Spirit in me , putting me to remembrance. I will keep pressing into His love in my little mutterings, whispers of thank you Lord under my breath.
Thank God for work but even more thank Him more for seeing Him even in your busy schedules. Happy Palm Sunday
Today is Sunday and as a part of every service or mass, giving offerings of thanksgiving is a part of the worship time. This post however is not on giving but on our attitude towards it and most often lame remarks (no hard feelings….just my opinion)
I personally dislike how some persons often sound as though God is forcing them to give to Him. What can you really give to God that can match His givings in your life and family. The point is this; we cannot out give God. And if you do not see the need to give don’t okay rather hide behind the notion that pastors are using it to wear fine clothes and drive amazing cars and live in wow houses.
If you are a Christian (BORN AGAIN) from my part of the world then you probably have heard this statement more than once in your life time” i don’t want to change my faith”. it has become so common that you find yourself ignorantly trying to justify the good you are trying to do ( this is especially common when you go out for evangelism or when encouraging a friend to follow you to church to hear God’s word with you etc ). you even meet a man that wants to marry you and he tells you that you have to change your faith to be his wife ( he actually means church). Faith is not a church people. Faith is not a location. We Christians have to work on our grammar? it sounds like believing in Jesus Christ equals change of cloths from a closet full
It gets you wondering if you both are Christians or some parts of the bible are just out of place.One Lord, one faith, one baptism, Eph 4:5. You begin to wonder ;was i asking you to stop believing in Jesus Christ? Our faith is stayed on Him. He is the Author and Finisher of our faith. So what faith don’t you want to change?
I was watching this interesting interview on “marriage is not for me” by “our “icons Shonda Rhimes and Oprah Winfrey. You know there is just something about information and especially from people we look up to, or are celebrities. Personally I think some of the most twisted ideas are from the so say icons and the truth is behind closed doors the reality of their global speeches holds on to them.
The truth is everyone is entitled to your opinion. I just do not understand how you will want your life to be everyone’s life. You can have kids with a man but a man will take up your time? How twisted is that? Well that is not the essence of this post today.
Marriage is for me (1 Cor 7:2b). Do you want to know why?
- It is a gift from my creator (1Cor 7:7)
- It is honourable (Heb 13:4)
- It should not be forbidden ( 1Tim 4:3)
- It is responsibility ( 1 Cor 7:33)
- It is not a sin ( 1 Cor 7:28)
Do not fear what they fear or speak what they speak. Have a mind of your own and not generalities. There is a man or wan out there for you as husband or wife but still if you are not “CALLED “to be married it is still great. God does not speak English, He uses ENGLISH. To be continued ….
Swagg swagg swagg!!!
It’s everywhere and on every lip but do you know what my BIBLE calls SWAGG?
Let me fill you in.
Real SWAGG is in Colossians 3:12-14
Biblical swaggishness is putting on
- Above all Love
Whatever part of your body you put either of this on is now your choice
I am so swaggish!!!!!
Jesus Christ is our perfect example of a name that stands out. There are things that we can do which will cause Christ to be exalted in our lives and thereby making our names stand out.
- Having love one for another and not doing things for vain glory
- Acting in humility; considering others better than ourselves
- Showing concern for the things of others( not praying only for ourselves but others too)
- Above all having the mind of God ( Focusing on making his Kingdom come by reaching out to the lost)
He wills we work and do His good pleasures.He is a rewarder so lets get to work.
We were created to show off His praise. Are we doing that? It is amazing to be at peace with someone we love so let us check God’s list and make some adjustments for our good.(Prov 6:16-19)
There are six things the Lord hates—no, seven things he detests:
*Eyes that are arrogant (eyes that look down on others; haughty eyes)
*A tongue that lies (Lying tongue)
*Hands that murder (shed, kill) the innocent,
*A heart that hatches (conceives) evil plots,
*Feet that race down a wicked track (to do wrong),
*A mouth that lies under oath (a false witness that breathes lies),
*A troublemaker in the family (a person who sows discord in a family)
Prayer: Father empower us to lead a life that gives you Glory. Amen.
