You Shall Not Worry

You Shall Not Worry

You shall not worry, for worry is the most unproductive of all human activities. You shall not be fearful, for most of the things we fear never come to pass. You shall not carry grudges, for they are the heaviest of all life’s burdens. You shall face each problem as it comes. You can only handle one at a time anyway. You shall not take problems to bed with you, for they make very poor bedfellows. You shall not borrow other people’s problems. They can better care for them than you. You shall not try to relive yesterday for good or ill, it is forever gone. Concentrate on what is happening in your life and be happy now! You shall be a good listener, for only when you listen do you hear ideas different from your own. You shall not become “bogged down” by frustration, for 90% of it is rooted in self-pity and will only interfere with positive action. You shall count your blessings, never overlooking the small ones, for a lot of small blessings add up to a big one. Meditation: Whoever offers praise glorifies Me; And to him who orders his conduct aright I will show the salvation of God. – Psalm 50:23 You will succeed in Jesus Name!

If You Never Felt Pain

If You Never Felt Pain

If you never felt pain, Then how would you know that I am a Healer?   If you never had to pray, How would you know that I am a Deliverer?   If you never had a trial, How could you call yourself an overcomer?   If you never felt sadness, How would you know that I am a Comforter?   If you never made a mistake, How would you know that I am a forgiver?   If you knew all, How would you know that I will answer your questions?   If you never were in trouble, How would you know that I will come to your rescue?   If you never were broken, Then how would you know that I can make you whole?   If you never had a problem, How would you know that I can solve them?   If you never had any suffering, Then how would you know what I went through?   If you never went through the fire, Then how would you become pure?   If I gave you all things, How would you appreciate them?   If I never corrected you, How would you know that I love you?   If you had all power, Then how would you learn to depend on me?   If your life was perfect, Then

God vs. Science

God vs. Science

‘Let me explain the problem science has with God.’ The atheist professor of philosophy pauses before his class and then asks one of his new students to stand. ‘You’re a Christian, aren’t you, son?’ ‘Yes sir, ‘the student says. ‘So you believe in God?’ ‘Absolutely.’ ‘Is God good?’ ‘Sure! God’s good.’ ‘Is God all-powerful? Can God do anything?’ ‘Yes’ ‘Are you good or evil?’ ‘The Bible says I’m evil.’ The professor grins knowingly. ‘Aha! The Bible!’ He considers for a moment. ‘Here’s one for you. Let’s say there’s a sick person over here and you can cure him. You can do it. Would you help him? Would you try?’ ‘Yes sir, I would.’ ‘So you’re good!’ ‘I wouldn’t say that.’ ‘But why not say that? You’d help a sick and maimed person if you could. Most of us would if we could. But God doesn’t.’ The student does not answer, so the professor continues. ‘He doesn’t, does he? My brother was a Christian who died of cancer, even though he prayed to Jesus to heal him. How is this Jesus good? Can you answer that one?’ The student remains silent. ‘No, you can’t, can you?’ the professor says. He takes a sip of water from a glass on his desk to give the student time to relax. ‘Let’s start again,

Isn’t it Strange?

Isn’t it Strange?

Isn’t it strange how N1000 seems like such a large amount when you donate it to church, but such a small amount when you go shopping? Isn’t it strange how 2 hours seem so long when you’re at church, and how short they seem when you’re watching a good movie? Isn’t it strange that you can’t find a word to say when you’re praying, but you have no trouble thinking what to talk about with a friend? Isn’t it strange how difficult and boring it is to read one chapter of the Bible, but how easy it is to read 100 pages of a popular novel? Isn’t it strange how everyone wants front-row-tickets to concerts or games, but they do whatever is possible to sit at the last row in Church? Isn’t it strange how we need to know about an event for Church 2-3 weeks before the day, so we can include it in our agenda, but we can adjust it for other events in the last minute? Isn’t it strange how difficult it is to learn a fact about God to share it with others; but how easy it is to learn, understand, extend and repeat gossip? Isn’t it strange how we believe everything that magazines and newspapers say, but we question the words in the Bible? Isn’t

Blessings We May Not Recognise

Blessings We May Not Recognise

Here are some blessings we may be taking for granted: 1. If you own a Bible, you are abundantly blessed – about 1/3 of the world does not have access to one. 2. If you wake up each morning with more health than illness, you are blessed to rise and shine, to live and to serve in a new day. 3. If you have anyone on the planet, just one person that loves you and listens to you; count this as a blessing. 4. If you can freely attend a church meeting without fear, then you are more blessed than over 1/3 of the world. 5. If you have a yearning in your heart to parent a child, you are blessed because you still desire what you cannot see. 6. If you pray today or any day, you are blessed because you believe in God’s willingness to hear your prayer. 7. If you pray for someone else, you are blessed because you want to help others also. 8. If you have food in your refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof over your head, and a place to sleep; all at the same time; you are rich in this world; 9. If you have a brother or sister in Christ that will pray with you and for you, you benefit
