Spiritual Vacation

Spiritual Vacation

Sharon's Blog

I remember as a child asking my mum when we were ever going to get a holiday from church as we always did at school. My mum told me church had no holidays and I couldn’t understand why. I was just a puzzled child who didn’t understand why we had to keep going to church so faithfully week after week and not be rewarded with a vacation. It seemed unfair to me. I wonder how God must have looked down on me with love in his eyes and be like “oh my baby will understand later”.
I felt I needed a vacation from church as a child because I didn’t know the reason we went to church was because of our love walk and relationship with God. Who ever wants a vacation from any one he is in a genuine relationship with? The more you are with any one you…

What Joy Indeed . . .

image

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.
Rejoice!

Anticipate Reoccurring Pain during Easter.  .  .
Happy New Month in advance!

Saving Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, I pray those in the dark,
may see Your saving Light
I pray they will come to know
it’s with Satan that they fight.

I pray they will find the Truth,
so they can seek the Way
I pray Your mercy and favor
will cause their hearts to sway.

I pray their eyes be opened,
to the darkness of their deeds
I pray they will come to know
it is the devil who misleads.

I pray their ears will hear,
the Good New that You sent
I pray to Your love and grace
they will give their consent.

Lord, I pray for those under,
Satan’s bondage and control
I pray they will come to know
only You can save their soul!

Acts 26:18

“To open their eyes, and to turn them
from darkness to light, and from the
power of Satan unto God, that they
may receive forgiveness…

What Valentine is Not!

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. . .

HAPPY VALENTINE!!!!

Putting on CHRIST ~

These passages came to my mind. . . Walk in the Spirit and you shall not fulfill the desires of the flesh Galatians 5: 16 . . . By strength shall not man prevail 1 Samuel 2: 9 . . . and Seek ye First the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all other things shall be added unto you Matthew 6: 33.

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Putting on Christ ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

I’m putting on Christ,
I’m  wearing the robe of love
wrapping it around me
till it fits like a glove.

I’m going to don an attitude,
of humility and meekness
I’m going to bind myself up
with gentleness and kindness.

I’m putting on Christ,
after righteousness I’ll thirst
I’m going to hunger after
putting God in my life first.

I’m going to turn away,
from  temptation and sin
I’m calling upon the power
He gives to me within.

I’m putting on Christ,
wrapping myself in His grace
for it’s the only way I know
to finish the faithful race!

“But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ,
and make not provision for the flesh,
to fulfil the lusts thereof.”
