The gift of a child!

Image
Children are gifts from God whether you want to believe it or not! In our day and age today, we like to think we can force God's hand as did Adam when man fell from Grace. There is even apparently research into trying to help transgender people have biological children! How foolish man is in thinking he can do better than his creator!


Some couples try to have children but are not able to in their lifetimes! Some eventually have a child when they least expect it even when modern medicine has written them off! It is only God who in his mercy and infinite wisdom gives you the gift of a child when the time is right. Not before. We have so may fertility doctors and centres these days but we do not know the ugly side behind them?


How much pain the patient goes through? How much exhaustion? And do you know how many embryos are destroyed just to make one child? Is it really worth it? Will you really be happy knowing what you had to sacrifice to have that child? We are turning into monster…

Riding the tide!

Image
Life is like the tide, sometimes its calm and sometimes its rough. You have to learn how to go with the flow of the tide or you will break! We often do not realize that stress is like a cancer, it eats away at us from the inside and yes, it often causes disease such as high blood pressure.


In the life we live on earth, perpertual bliss is a myth! Let us not deceive oursleves into thinking that wealth, family, a good job, health, beauty, nice things...will make us happy! I am not saying you cannot be happy in this life, i am saying you have to learn to smile through your tears.


Yesterday i was sent an interesting life quote . One of the key points was that some  bad things in life are meant to help you be better. For example , you need people who will disappoint you so you can put all your trust in God. You need people who will say NO to you so you can learn to be independent.


The word breakthrough is interesting and shows you that you have to reach a breaking point and get through it.…

A peaceful disposition comes with meekness!

Yesterday i was reading an isnspiring spiritual article about how peace is linked to humility. I very much agree with that. In our so called modern world today, everything is geared to a fast pace which tends to cause severe anxiety and stress. No wonder we have so many people with high blood pressure today! Our stress levels keep increasing every passing day!


Another cause of anxiety is that, we as human beings do not want to accept failure as a learning point. I am not refering to the self pity that we want to indulge in. No one should say they are a failure but we should not be so depressed and give up when we fail. To err is human. We are human beings and we make mistakes and we are weak. Yes, accept that when you fall but gather yourself and get back up, Dont stay sprawled on the ground!


This applies especially also to our moral failings. As humans, we are weak and can fall prey to temptations often. We need to recognise our human weakness and lean on God who will give us his str…

Tensions in the East!

Image
There has been a recent flare up of tensions between the United States and North Korea. North Korea's nuclear ambitions are also causing tension among her immediate neighbors , especailly South Korea whose city of Seoul could be caught in the middle of a war. War is not new and humans have been fighting wars since the dawn of time. However, we seem to have learnt very few lessons from our brutal and bloody past!


How many cruel and harsh realities war brings! Those who have lived through wars must often live with the scars of old wounds that might never truly heal. In times of war, there is even less value placed on human lives and society descends into a chaos. Property is destroyed and progress is set back but oh, how much blood is shed? How many tears are shed? How may sleepless nights and days filled with anxiety?


In my mind, i think North Korea and other nuclear powers display of weaponry seems to boast to another nation , " I can use these weapons to KILL and destroy so …
