Electricity and Water Issues – Mpumalanga Witbank South Africa

As a resident of this place I truly am so upset, we cannot do much about it because it seems this place is out to take every little bit out of their residence.  The municipality owes Eskom so much money and has not paid the bill for the usage of Electricity.  Let me tell you something if we miss one payment they cut off the electricity and make you pay penalty fees to have it switched back on.

We also suffer the inconvenience of no electricity which also affects our water.  The water, by the way, is another story all on its own.  If you drink this water you will really be violently sick.  Resulting in us needing to buy bottled water which cost us more, as we are paying for water at home too.

As a stay home mom, I cannot do my washing on Mondays because the electricity is switched off at 06h00 am to 08h00 am and the water is non-existent.  To top it off tonight we go through the same thing again from 17h00 to 19h30 pm no lights.  Don’t be misled this will happen on a daily basis the weekend is no different.  We are paying Sandton rates and tax’s in Witbank.

My question is why must the people who are paying their bills to be affected by
the negligence of the municipality?  We are being kept accountable for their mistakes.  What is going to become of our cities?

When I wake-up!

Psalm 119: 147 "I rise before dawn and cry
for help;
I hope in your words."
The first thought in my mind is "Good morning LORD."  I get up open the shower's hot water and get back into bed for another couple of minutes.  5 o'clock in the morning I feel just great, looking forward to a brand new day.
I think of the work that lay ahead of me and pray asking God to help me do my best job today.  I pray asking for a good and helpful attitude.
Sometimes I wake up during the night and my mind runs away with me, the devil reminds me of my past mistakes and then I struggle to fall asleep again.  In those early morning hours, I pray for help and trust my life into Gods hands.
Heavenly Father, tonight I dedicate all my friends and family into Your hands, protect each one of us and keep us from harm.  We love and adore You, in Jesus name, Amen
