When God moves people, for me.

Image
Psalm 9: 1 – 4 “To the Choirmaster: According to Muth-Labben. A Psalm of David. I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart; I will recount all of your wonderful deeds. I will be glad and exult in you; I will sing praise to your name, O Most High. When my enemies turn back, they stumble and perish before your presence. For you have maintained my just cause; you have sat on the throne, giving righteous judgment.”
I have come to realize something significant in my own life today. I have seen how people in high positions have been doing what they can to stop me from working. The first person moved and there was the opening for me. Then for the last couple of weeks, I had been told without a doubt that I am going home and the job will not be offered to me again.
I become tearful and unhappy because I am in need of my job and with my cash, I am able to help someone. So I resided at the thought that well I’m out and that’s that. Well then before the month closes the person who was adaman…

Unwholesome words!

Image
Ephesians 4:29(AMP)29 Do not let unwholesome [foul, profane, worthless, vulgar] words ever come out of your mouth, but only such speech as is good for building up others, according to the need and the occasion, so that it will be a blessing to those who hear [you speak]. 

I find that most people are profane, they don't care what they say and swearing is part of their daily vocabulary. How sad, that we cannot speak to each other with wholesome words. Instead, it's so cool to swear and use vulgar words.

What happened to be civil with each other and what happened to people being kind and understanding, having patience and compassion for each other. Are we so caught up in our own little world that we cannot be kind and civil any longer?

People grumble and moan all the time, on one shows that they are grateful and the best is they have so much to be grateful over.

I listen to people speaking to their spouse or partners and my word there is no civility, being married makes the way w…

Pray from your heart!

Image
Matthew 6:5(AMP)5 “Also, when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites; for they love to pray [publicly] standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets so that they may be seen by men. I assure you and most solemnly say to you, they [already] have their reward in full."
I have come to realise that lately, I have been reciting a prayer each and every day, I haven't really been praying from my heart.  Sadly this has placed me in a difficult position making me feel inadequate and without direction.

I have been so busy with all kinds of things keeping me from really expressing my hearts feelings and thoughts. 

Preaching to myself this afternoon, humbly coming before the LORD, bring my heartfelt desires and expressing my feelings. I have realised that I have been burning the candle both side and I am facing a burnout.

Exhaustion is creeping up on me and I feel hopeless at times because I have no real source of connection to the LORD. I am reading the Word praying praye…

June was a stress filled month for me:

Image
Psalm 37: 5 "Commit your way to the LORD, trust in Him, and he will act."
It's been a difficult month for me, I have committed my way to the LORD, in the hope that I will continue to work. I have so many responsibilities and I would hate to drop the people who are depending on me.

I feel hopeful and believe that nothing is impossible with God and actually if all turns out the way I think it will, I should be continuing with my work.

God has never let me down in the past I don't think He will be doing this going forward.

I have a number of projects running and I believe God is working on my behalf.

Prayer

Humbly O, LORD my God I take refuge in You, I know there are people standing against me and is pushing with all their might to get rid of me. LORD as King David prayed in Psalm 7 I come humbly in prayer asking that YOU LORD, will help me. O LORD my GOD, if I have done this, if there is wrong in my hands, if I have repaid my friends with evil or plundered my enemy wit…

Scripture for Friday

Image
Psalm 37:3(AMP) 3  Trust [rely on and have confidence] in the Lord and do good; Dwell in the land and feed [securely] on His faithfulness.


Lord, You know how I feel about people who act like hooligans, they just cannot stop themselves and think its quite all right.
I know Your word says we should pray for them. I also know that we all will give a report on what we have done in our lives. Please, Lord, help me get over this and move forward in Jesus Christ's name. Amen

Are you expecting to be disappointed?

Image
Zechariah 9: 12
"Return to your stronghold, O prisoners of hope; today I declare that I will restore to you double."
Are you expecting to be disappointed? I think that we should not think in terms of disappointment. I am expecting God to give me hope and a future. I am expecting good things to follow me all the days of my life. I am putting my hope in the Lord.

When I think of the Lord Jesus I expect only good things to follow me because He died on the cross for my sins. I believe that Jesus is in control over my life and He came to save me. He called me by my name and I belong to Him.

You know the devil comes with lies and he whispers them in your ear all day long. Telling you that you won't make it and nothing good can ever come your way. All lies I tell you, we should turn our focus to the Lord Jesus, He loves us and will answer all our prayers.

Lord Jesus, thank You for today, for my friends and family. I am expecting double for my trouble and Lord I am grateful tha…
