INNER BEAUTY SHINES THROUGH !!!!

We are made in the image of God

So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.(Genesis 1:27)

These images that I have posted below, show me the inner beauty that radiates from Jesus’ face and eyes.

I’d like to think that beauty shines out of people and this is certainly true of these images of Christ. What makes up the inside from the soul and spirit reflects who and what you are on the outside.

If there is hatred inside people, it will manifest itself in how they present themselves to the world. The way they dress, the way they put on their make up, the words they choose to speak, the gestures they use, all become the non-verbals that speak volumes of the person.  I know that social media would have you look and think a certain way but they’re not interested in pleasing or respecting their creator God. They are not interested in attracting  God’s favour. In 1 Corinthians it says… “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own.” 

People can become confused because they think they have to dress a certain way to belong but God says in Proverbs 31:30 Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but  women and men who fear the Lord are to be praised.

1 Timothy 2:9 Likewise also that women and men should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire.

For example… take the archangel Lucifer, the name, Lucifer, means ‘day star,’ or ‘son of the morning.’ Many recognize it as an alternate name of Satan, the fallen angel. But prior to his downfall, Lucifer was a magnificent being, his beauty was incomparable, he was established by God to be the angel of worship, one whose ministry surrounded the heart of heaven. Lucifer was created to dwell eternally in the throne room of heaven, in the very presence of God (Ezekiel 28:14). Of course his appearance changed because He no longer reflected God’s beauty.

So then, what is it about a meeting of people  where we either warm to someone or not within the first five minutes of meeting them? How can we make such a quick judgement? Could it be whether they reflect the inner beauty that comes from God?  So I say, focus on what is good, beautiful, praiseworthy and pleasing to God and let that inner beauty speak for you.  God will reward your efforts.

Psalm 37:4Seek your happiness in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desire.

Does the image below reflect God???? 

Too scary for words!!!!!

Where are you God??????

Often when we come across difficult times and face the darkest days of our lives and can’t see the end, we ask ourselves where are you God???? This beautiful reflection called “FOOTPRINTS” which has been immortalised in plates, cards etc…..based on the story of Moses,  is so pertinent to all of us. It has been my strength.

If you submit yourself to God and allow God to do His work in your life, He will show you His mighty power in due course.

Read the poem footprints below. Then recall the many times that He has taken you through the difficult times Thank Him for carrying you all the way…though His footprints may not be seen!

I’d love to read your comments, so let me know what you think. God Bless You!!

WHY PRAY?

When we pray to God the Father, we invoke the Great Power of the Almighty designer of all things seen and unseen and then united with His Son Jesus Christ who, being of one substance with the Father, was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary. Jesus gave up His life as a ransom to buy your life, Jesus the one and only who lived and died so that you may live, will lead us to salvation.

So when you pray to God you have all the heavenlies aligned at your fingertips so that you can attract God’s favour and get the best possible outcome.

Mary the great intercessor of all, prays for you to Jesus Her Son, to make all things possible. God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit three in one.

Make no mistake, Heaven is real and so is Hell. If there was no Hell Lucifer and all the other angels who left with him and who rebelled against God, would not have been condemned to Hell. Some people think that Heaven is automatic if we repent. That’s not enough!!!!! Your fate will be decided by the life you’ve lived. Jesus said, in Matthew 12:37 “for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”Jesus Christ is our Hope and our salvation, He is the only one that matters and alone in judgement with Him, your fate will be decided. Jesus is Lord.

If you will listen to this testimony (link below) you can see the great Power God has bestowed upon Jesus His Son and Mary the mother of God, the queen of Heaven.

Father Steven Scheier  died and was condemned to hell but then Mary intervened and changed everything.

 

 

Pantheism is the belief that God is everything and everything is God-NOT SO!!!!

This belief that God is in everything is misleading. Yes! God has created everything but not everything has chosen to be in union with God. Not all that is in the world is God. Satan, his demons and evil are also in the world. They inflict pain and destruction upon God’s creatures which does not come from our Almighty, All powerful All knowing Father God.

 

1 John 4:1-4 The True Spirit and the False Spirit

My dear friends, do not believe all who claim to have the Spirit, but test them to find out if the spirit they have comes from God. For many false prophets have gone out everywhere. This is how you will be able to know whether it is God’s Spirit: anyone who acknowledges that Jesus Christ came as a human being has the Spirit who comes from God. But anyone who denies this about Jesus does not have the Spirit from God. The spirit that he has is from the Enemy of Christ; you heard that it would come, and now it is here in the world already. But you belong to God, my children, and have defeated the false prophets, because the Spirit who is in you is more powerful than the spirit in those who belong to the world.

All that is the world is not God. Evil exists in the world because God’s given man a free will, because Satan and his demons operate in the world and they turned away from God. Pantheism makes no distinction between God, Satan, demons or any form of evil even humans. Humans and everything in this world are not equal to God. Putting everything into a minestrone does not make lasagna.  If that were the case, then you and I are God. We can, in effect, create our own reality. Well that’s wrong!!!! Because the only real truth is the truth that God has revealed through the prophets and His Son Jesus Christ.

The First and Second Commandments state: “You shall have no other gods before Me [God]” and, “You shall not make for yourself a carved image … you shall not bow down to them nor serve them” (Exodus 20:3-5).

It is important to get rid of idols and only worship the true one God, the God of Jesus Christ.

BECAUSE I LOVED YOU FIRST……………………….

The Lord says in the Scriptures, “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you.”(Hebrews 13:5,6).

You’re never alone, there is nothing you can do that will stop me loving you, you are the apple of my eye and I want you to call on me and stay with me and I will never desert you…..

COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS AND NOT YOUR WORRIES!

Ecclesiastes 3:1

                          YOUR BAD DAYS ARE SOMEONE’S GOOD DAYS!                         Count your blessings and you’ll soon forget your troubles

  Pray and give your troubles to God. I know that there will be days of tribulation but they will pass. Not believing in God’s abundance gives insult to God. Give thanks for His Son Jesus, because Jesus is everything……………..now as I’m writing this,  the prayer to St. Teresa of Avila comes to mind because it has got me through some tough times. So here it is. God works through others.

 

Helen Keller:

……………………………….and being thankful and humble brings glory to God.

I’ll leave you with this beautiful song from an old favourite by Bing Crosby            

 

 

FAMILY DAY TODAY-THERE IS JOY IN STAYING TOGETHER



Life and education begin at home. The home is the primary and most vital factor in a child’s education and development into a mature and stable member of society. The first encounter with God for a newborn child is through the family. Children learn by listening and watching the parents, so good modelling is paramount.

When God gave the commandments to Moses, He directly devoted two of His ten great laws to protecting family relationships. In the 5th and 7th commandments, we see how important honoring parents and for parents to love, care and respect one another is, in maintaining a Christian family relationship.

The saying goes that a family who eats together stays together. We had lunch with my mother, coffee with my brother and ice-cream with my daughters and partner.

A great way to share and catch up with mutual respect for one another and then praising God for the gift of each other.(Exodus 20:12-14)
