As we look forward to the month of March and to celebrating Easter, let us brace up and rejoice in the finished work of our salvation.
It is indeed sad to know that someone came all the way just to be mocked, ridiculed, injured, spanked, beaten, spat on, and killed for our own sin(s) to be wiped off. But it is mind blowing that He went through all of that.
Oh what Joy I have to be forgiven and redeemed back to my Creator and Friend. It is gladdening for anyone who is in Christ now. You can imagine being away from your best friend for so long because you keep hurting him/her and it can no longer be condoned. But you were suddenly forgiven at no cost.
Hmm . . .
Those who haven’t joined the train can still join, the vacancy is TBC (To be Continued). There is no closing date.
God’s hands are always open to receive anyone who is ready.
Come experience the joy that is in Christ Jesus.
Come experience genuine peace.
Come experience satisfaction.
Anticipate Reoccurring Pain during Easter. . .
Happy New Month in advance!
I really do not know what the colour red has done to me but I really do not like the colour. That is what most people will be putting on today, at least a touch of it on their outfit. Nice isn’t it? But what is this day all about? Why do we even celebrate it? It’s to share gifts and red roses, for red carpets, and to celebrate love. I agree in a way . . . read what a Catholic Father had to say about the real meaning of Valentine.
It’s a shame that many have decided to spend so much on themselves and people they know so well on this day when the main person spent his time with someone he didn’t really have any connection with.
Many young adults and unmarried youths prepared or unprepared give in and donate/loose their virginity on this day all in the name of showing love. . .
What has sex got to do with those who are not married in the first place?
I’m not trying to be all spiritual here but think about it. . . someone imprisoned and still thought it good to share the love of God with a little girl? Isn’t that something worth it? Even though he knew he was going to die he preferred to stand for whom he believed and did something close to what Christ did.
What have you done for the sake of Christ? Do you chicken out when you’re torn between Christ and the world? Do you give to those in need of any kind, Christ inclusive? Are you shy of even talking about Him?
I think that is what Valentine means. . . it’s more than giving red roses. Yes, it was an act of love but it wasn’t mainly between couples, it wasn’t mainly between a boyfriend and a girlfriend. Don’t get me wrong it is NOT wrong to celebrate it between couples (at any level) but the HOW is what might be the issue.
Show love EVERYDAY. . .Make is it a Lifestyle. Share God’s love today with means loved ones and especially to those who need your love -the less privileged, the orphans, etc. Those who will appreciate it more and be able to say like St Valentine, thanks My Valentine.
Now that you know what Valentine is Not, celebrate it differently this year. . .
It’s been a while since I came here my dear friends. I did not want to rush it this year but something I must share came up today.
If you remember I wrote on Dyslexia sometimes ago. A girl I know inspired that write up.
The girl was like a major worry for everyone; people have tried and given up. Imagine a 5 year old girl in a class of 3 year olds unable to talk or write well. . .
I tried as well, I was enthusiastic at first but later I started getting weary when nothing was forthcoming. Sometimes, I’ll just let her write when it was convenient for me.
I had fasted and prayed for her, I have tried all I knew but no improvement. . . I got frustrated at some point that I suggested that the girl be referred to a specialist.
Alas, the Specialist showed up today!
I decided to hold her hand to write today and then I noticed she wanted to write herself. I almost hesitated saying to myself that she just want to scribble. But then I gave her a chance, I said circle . . and stroke (alphabet a) and there you go! She wrote herself! I couldn’t hold it up I was moved to tears at what God alone did.
So tell me what’s that situation that has lingered for so long that you’re now beginning to get tired of or that you’re at the verge of giving up? Please don’t even think about it. It may be delayed but it cannot be cut short. The Specialist is still available, the One who changes situation when and however He pleases without notice; the One who can diagnose our conditions more than we can. The One who sees and knows all things. The Owner of time and chance. Our Help in ages past, Our Ever present Help. He still does work.
He spoke to me about this passage yesterday, “Jesus said to her, Did I not tell you and promise you that if you would believe and rely on Me, you will see the glory of God? John 11:40 AMP”
I didn’t understand it until today wow! You’ve just got to believe and trust Him to do whatever He has promised.
It’s getting frustrating you may say, my dear, press a little further, take another step, do it again, apply again. . .Keep on going like the clock, please don’t give in or up.
It’s another month so keep holding on, keeping praising, keeping trusting. . . it will not tarry, it will come.
Happy New Month!
