My funny old life



Going to church on Sundays is one of my highlights of the week.  Ah what no one really knows is that I never have any cash available in the week and then suddenly on Sundays I have money available for the offering.  Of course I am grateful and it’s part of what I do on a regular basis. 
My stepdaughter looked at me on Sunday and said ‘You, Aunty Yvette, I really think I want to see if I can buy a Bible just like yours.’  Looking at her as we parked the car in the parking lot of the Church I replied ‘Why Alezandra?’

She started to laugh and said ‘This Bible always has cash in it for Church offerings.’  We both sat laughing for a couple of minutes and went into to church to attend the serve.

What my darling stepdaughter doesn’t realise is that sure my Bible always has a couple of Rand in it, is that when I receive cash I place some notes into the Bible.  I feel I need to bring my offerings on Sundays and I really don’t want to come empty handed to church.

1 Cor. 1: 4 “Every time I think of You, I thank God for your life.”

Praise God for letting me have cash to bring into His house as a offering.

#Blessed

God has only been supernaturally favorable towards me and my family.  My life is good and I have so much to be grateful over.  God watches my coming and my going.  God has been instrumental in showing supernatural favor over my children.

There were times when I just felt I could not face another day and then something wonderful would happen.  I would get an unexpected call from one of my children.  The great news of my daughter having a little baby girl, is just such a blessing to our family.

God has blessed my family with success, with health and wealth, with supernatural favor with man and with God.  I can only say LORD GOD ALMIGHTY Thank You.

We are waiting to see our new little addition to our family, a beautiful little darling girl.

Thank You Lord for blessings my family and me.

In the Name of Jesus Amen

Beauty & the Beast

Proverbs 31: 30
Charm can be deceiving, and beauty fades away, but a woman who honours the Lord deserves to be praised.

My struggle these day is "beauty and the beast".  Growing older makes me feel I am not as beautiful as always.  Then I realized it is something we all face.  Mother nature is at work and time is against you and me.  It's all part of life!

The secret is to know who you are in the Lord Jesus and stay focused on the Lord!

Don't be deceived by your beauty it does fade! Start a relationship with the Lord while you are young.

prayer

O Lord thank you for always being there for me! Bless and praise Your Holy name!
Amen

May God lift you Higher .... and .... Higher


Matthew 17:20 (NIV)

20 He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

Nothing is impossible if you put your mind to it, by starting at some point and doing it on a regular basis you begin to rise higher.  In the beginning it is baby steps and then you progress to little bigger steps and before you realise it you have giant steps.

The thing is start now, the year is still ahead of you and with the help of the Holy Spirit you are able to attain your goal.  Praise God for His faithfulness and also that He gave you faith, now use it.


Prayer Abba Father nothing is impossible with You by my side, I feel excited and look forward to each new day.  Thank You for raising me higher and higher, in the name of Jesus.  Amen

Generosity, is it part of who you are?


My thinking is this as I read Matthew 25 from 14 through to 30 I am reminded that God is in the position to make each one of us wealthy.  The parable is told of 3 people who have been entrusted with an amount of talents.  The first person is entrusted with 5 talents, the second person was entrusted with 2 talents and the third person was entrusted with 1 talent.

As I read these passages I see that each person did as he felt was the best and it was clear the one with the 5 talents worked at creating another 5 talents, the second chap did his best and also accumulated another 2 talents.  What amazed me was the third chap, he took the 1 talent and buried it.  He felt it would be safe in the ground and didn’t worry about it anymore.

Now to my mind I believe the two other chaps were probably working hard and had the ability to think ahead, I also believe they must have cared about their master and wanted to impress him.  I think they also may have been people that were generous and would probably help other people in need.

The third chap made me think he was someone that didn’t take chances and he didn’t give freely to others and was tight fisted.  He also said to the master that he knew the master as a hard man, harvesting where he didn’t sow and gathering where he didn’t scatter seeds.  I think this guy was selfish and thought to himself “the master has so much why; must I give him anymore?”

I think being generous is something we should practice and with the little that we have we should bless people around us each and every day.  You have heard one day when I am rich I will give to this charity and that charity.  Ha ha, that’s just not going to happen, you aren’t giving now why then?
To my mind giving freely God will make you wealthy.  Trust in God He knows best!

Heavenly Father, Lord teach each one of us to give freely, we aren’t able to take what we have accumulated on earth with us into heaven.  Let us not be attached to our worldly belongings but be concerned and worried about our friends, neighbours and people in need.

Thank YOU Lord for blessing me with a job, I am so grateful that I am able to start work again.  Thank YOU LORD Jesus.  Amen

do not lose your 'mojo'


Today it felt like I lost my mojo.  Everything was just in slow motion, I just couldn’t do things the way I normally do and it was a drag.

My husband reminds me that I am not as young as I think I am and it drives me nuts.  I have so much to do and so little time to do it.  I think my day didn’t work out as well as it would have if I done what I always do. 

Spending time in God’s presence, I thought let me just do this, that and the other and before I know it the day is over.  So what went wrong?  Well I think its because I didn’t spend time with God today, I wanted to quickly do the washing, clean the house and then go to the shops and then sit down and relax with the LORD.  Guess that didn’t happen, yip your right I was too busy.

So its late and I want to spend time in God’s presence and I hope it not too late for me.


Oh LORD, forgive me for not being the person I am supposed to be, I keep on losing myself in not important things.  Forgive me LORD, in Jesus Name.
