Come Holy spirit.........

Image
Come Holy Spirit and renew the face of the earth! Sunday will be pentecost and a great feast to remember the first descent of the Spirit in Jerusalem so many years ago. But it is not only ceremonial, the earth is in need of the comforter, the spirit of love and truth. We are in desperate need of God's wisdom and love!


Take a look at the world now and ponder about the situation we are living in. Wars are increasing and the threat of another world war is ever looming due to global tensions with "world powers". The humanitarian crisis is devastating in Syria, in Sudan, in Congo..etc. Christians are being persecuted for their faith all over the world. Abortion and euthanasia are being gradually accepted as well as "gay marriage". Our leaders have failed us and seem to pursue selfish interests. The number of homeless people and unemployed increases every year and so many die of hunger! The earth is also seemingly unstable with numerous earthquakes, volcanic eruption…

Life always has a valley............

I am dealing with a personal health crisis that has been recurrent and getting stronger. Its now resistant to some of the medication i have been taking! Very scary indeed and quite serious. Honestly i did not how bad it was untill i sat down with my doctor last week and he looked at me with a grave face and said the lab results were not good! (sigh)


I choose to wake up every day and fight and i will overcome this! Life is sometimes rosy but the thorns are always there at some point. When i was younger, i used to think that some people had it so easy, that some people didn't have troubles. Fast forward to today and i realise life isn't like that for anyone and life seldom stays the same. Today you are on the hilltop and tomorrow, you are tumbling into the valley. As they say in French, "c'est la vie"





Life is full of mountains and valleys and we cannot expect to have a flat road. A life devoid of challenges isn't a life worth living. Every situation you have ex…

Living without regret....one day at a time!

Image
Usually at the moment of death, i think we regret the things we DIDN'T do rather than the things we did! I haven't been at that point yet but i imagine those would be my thoughts too! We wont be thinking about work and career but about how much we lived and loved!


We are so preoccupied with work most of our lives that we forget to really live. We are here on earth for a purpose and work is part of that purpose but its not all we are! I recently got an inspirational video and the message was that we postpone living. The fact is we live and we die and we cannot control our birth or death. We can only choose how we will live in between.


We should never be frustrated about our jobs / work. Its only a part of life and we shouldnt focus on it too much waiting for a time when we can enjoy later! The time to live is now! Be happy and remember you only live once. Do not let life pass you by, take time to enjoy life one day at a time. Spend time with your family and friends while you st…

The prince of this world...........

Recently, the church of satan was opened in Colombia. It is very heart breaking and continues to trouble my mind! The cult leader (Victor Damian Razo) claims they are not worshipping the devil, but Lucifer, the fallen angel expelled for his pride! Lucifer and Satan are the same person so i dont know who he is trying to deceive here!


I cannot understand how people can be so blind as to worship evil! Lucifer is evil incarnate and he is only capable of hatred and malice! Do not deceive yourself into thinking that there is any good in him. Some very misguided people think they should sympathise with his cause because he was "unjustly" judged by God. Angelic beings were created with full knowledge and thus his sin could not be forgiven. He knew fully well what he was doing when he rebelled against God!


Lucifer / Satan is the prince of this world but make no mistake, he is evil and only desires your downfall. He is an expert at deception and flattery so do not fall for his trap. L…

Comparison robs us of contentment..........

Image
I recently received an inspirational video that focused on comparison. Basically the message was that we become depressed and envious when we compare our situations and lives to others! It also helps us to ponder why it seems that the people who have the most, are the most unhappy?


Everyone has a different journey and a different life story. The sooner we accept that, the better for us. There will always be someone smarter, wealthier, better looking or more talented than you! So what? Does that mean they are better people than you or that your life matters any less than theirs? No, your unique life has purpose and meaning whether you are an educated professor or a high school drop out!


Do not let comparison rob you of your joy and contentment. Instead of focusing on what others have thna you do not, focus on what you do have! There is no one on earth who has nothing to contribute. We all make life on earth beautiful and meaningful. We each have a purpose and a unique journey, discover…

You are not defined by the perceptions of other people!

I recently received a video about Lizzie Velasquez. Lizzie is a beautiful , amazing young woman who was born with a genetic disorder that does not allow her to gain any weight! Growing up Lizzie had to deal with bullies and at age 17 was dubbed the "world's ugliest woman in a you tube video". I was speechless at the cruelty of human beings. How could someone do that to her?


Today Lizzie is a great motivational speaker, author and graduate. She made a choice , a very brave one not to let the cruelty and shallowness of some people define her. She is so strong and such an inspiration to thousands of people around the world today!


There is a alot of negativity in the world today but only you can decide how you deal with it. You can chose to be bitter and spew hatred and venom if its hurled at you or you can use that to grow! People can be cruel but use that cruelty and let it make you strong. Do not let them win! Do not let the bitterness around you change you. You were made…

Living for others..............

Yesterday, someone shared with me a beautiful life quote. It starts with the words, "does a candle lose anything by lighting another candle? Obviously not! In our era of today, we have forgotten the true meaning of life and what happiness really is!


Just look towards nature. Do flowers bloom for their own benefit? Is their sweet fragrance smelt by them? Do trees eat their own fruit? Does the radiant sun shine for its own benefit? The list is endless!
Our selfish nature notwithstanding, we were created to help and complement one another!


You do not lose anything by being kind. Your talents will only shine brighter when used to help others. Be an inspiration to someone everyday and you will discover that true fulfillment in life is in service to others. Let your motto come from Jesus, "I am among you as one who serves".
God bless you all!
