For Love of me.......

Isaiah 50 is quoted as saying :

"I offered my back to those who struck me, my cheeks to those who tore at my beard; I did not hide my face from issults and spittle."

It is Holy week again and i am reminded of another verse from Isaiah 53:

"But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed."

Oh what a terrible and immeasurable price was paid for my salvation and yours! It was paid for in blood and how much innocent blood was spilt to save us, and yet we live as if we do not care at all! There is indeed no love greater than that of God humiliating himself to become human and die the most curel death, abandoned and wounded. Torn apart inside and out and his sacrifice is still ignored by so many even today! 


When i contemplate Jesus on the cross, I am ashamed of my very many sins. When i see the stripes on his back, i am horrified but i remember that he willingly submitte…

Love and expectations!

I like the quote i read today on my cousins's profile photo on whats app. It is a quote from Rashawn Copeland that says, " There's a beauty in being rejected, misunderstood, unseen and unsupported by people....it teaches you to rely on God for everything."

It is abit sad but depending on how you look at it, true and inspiring!  To be honest, i learnt again recently, that the only person, you csn rely on is God and yourself!  People will always disappoint you. If you want to expect something , then expect that. It is however not an excuse for people to trat you badly anf get away with it. If someone has done something that offends or hurts you, speak up!


No one is perfect, dont expect that people will treat you well and care for you, even those closest to you like famuly. In life, we need to be realistic and not have too many expectations from people. Sometimes you find someone who you can trust and who loves you and they are very rare indeed but even people like that…
