Sweet Words

Psalm 119:103 Amplified Bible (AMP)103 How sweet are Your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!


I wonder why people cannot speak sweet and beautiful words.  Men who date their girlfriends use the most charming and a beautiful word, to make sure the lady is crazy over them.  I believe that we should practice speaking beautifully to each other.  Why do we find it so easy to say foul words and swear without blushing? 
I think it is because it is against our nature to speak sweet words that is uplifting and encouraging.  We unintentionally don’t want to see the sun shine on others.  We are selfish and self-centred that is why we don’t speak words of encouragement, speaking compliments and being kind.
My challenge today to you is, why don’t you start speaking sweet words, something that melts in your mouth.  See how life will change and people will become calmer and sweeter.
My words going forward is to speak sweet words, I want to become Holy, I want to be a pleasing person …

A thought for today ... God is Good ... All the time

I am so excited, today I received a letter on email telling me I won, I wrote a note to one of the magazines - Vrouekeur - and they responded telling me I won.

Awesome, I have never won anything in such a long, long time I wanted to share this with you.  God is great, He is good, all the time.

Don't give up, trust in the Lord.


Abundance - will come my way

John 10: 10 Amplified
10 The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may haveand enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it[b]overflows).
Many people I know are blessed with an abundant life, the best is they don’t always know it.I watch people around me and I feel happy for them.I am not being jealous or crying about the lack I have right now.
God is working on my behalf and not too far in the future I will also have the abundance everybody else is enjoying.

So this is my confession, Lord I declare and believe that I am enjoying my life and that I have an abundance, (to the full, till it overflows) enough to give to the poor and needy.  In the Holy name of Jesus Christ.  Amen

Teach me Your paths Lord

To be alone with God

Summary:
This Christian Mystery Novel is written using the setting of the “Wild Duck County”.  The story kicks off with a really tragic and horrific murder which takes place at the “Magnum Point Lighthouse”.  Keeping in mind the News Papers and TV Reports always get involved the story revolves about the Editor Drake Saunders and a Reporter Frank Denton.
Drake Saunders gets involved with a beautiful student who is an agnostic and an interesting turn of events takes place with them.  Frank Denton is a prayer warrior and gets literally back stabbed by fellow Christian – story revolving around the bank in the town makes a number of influential people angry and they turn against Frank.
Another important pl…

My prayer Psalm 91 Amplified Bible

Father God please help me dwell in the secret place of the Most High so that I may remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].As the Psalmist states Lord, I will say of the LORD, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust!For [then] He will delivery me from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence.[Then] He will cover me with His pinions, and under His wings shall I trust and find refuge; His truth and His faithfulness are a shield and a buckler.I shall not be afraid of the terror of the night, nor of the arrow (the evil plots and slanders of the wicked) that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor of the destruction and sudden death that surprise and lay waste at noonday.A thousand may fall at my side, and ten thousand at my right hand, but it shall not come near me.Only a spectator shall I be [myself inaccessible in the secret place of the Mo…

The Curious Case of Prince Charming - by Charlen Mattson - Book Review

Book Review:                                   The Curious Case of Prince Charming Author:                                              Charlene Mattson Personal Quality Rating:                   3            Reviewer:                                          Yvette van Niekerk (South Africa)
Summary:
The story is about the abduction of a beautiful Princess in Altria a fairy-tale country.  Because the abductor is seen as a villain the palace decides on recruiting the services of a detective in the City – William Tenys. 
It’s clear that William has been doing investigative work for some time and he really gets involved.  A couple of murders take place and there is a twist in the story.  Some evil villain is influenced by an even worse entity.
The story does lean more towards an investigation and not so much about a fantasy world but nevertheless it is quite interesting to see what happens.
Social / Historical Context:
As fiction I would say that the book is really lovely.  The most s…

South Africa - we need to check our values !!!

Good Citizens
A good citizen is someone that to my mind is trustworthy, has respect for his own property as well as for the next person’s property.  This person is responsible and knows that whatever he or she does will affect many people around him or her, directly or indirectly.  This person is able to deal fairly with people, under any circumstances and cares about what happens to others.  Being a good Citizen is import to our Country.  We need to teach our children good values that will help them growing up.  We need to take the time in working with them.  In showing  them the right way of living.  Looking at some aspects and values I think we need to address give me some of your thoughts and tell me if you believe I am wrong.  What can we do to make our Country better?
Respect
I have been talking to a number of people and it seems that in our Country today there is a lack of some good qualities throughout the nation.  It seems our Citizens don’t have any respect for each other th…

Empty Tomb ... He is a Live!

Mary the mother of James, and Mary Magdalene and Salome bought spices and sat together preparing the spices.  It was very early when Mary Magdalene went into the kitchen and put everything together while she was putting the spices on the table, the other Mary and Salome can into the kitchen too.  ‘How did you sleep?’ Salome asked as she sat down on a chair near the table.  
Looking at her both Mary’s said ‘Not at all’.  Picking up the dish with the spices the three women walked through the door and down the street toward the place where Jesus was buried.
On their way to the grave they experienced a violent earthquake.  An Angel of the Lord came down from heaven and going to the tomb rolled back the stone and sat on it.  His appearance was like lightning and his clothes were white as snow.  The guards were so afraid of him they shook and became like dead men.
The three women, Mary the mother of James, Mary Magdalene and Salome saw the Angel of the Lord and stood before him like pilla…
