HELLYWOOD AND AWARD NIGHTS

A TV award winning show was on during the week and the hosts publicly blasphemed the name of Jesus Christ. They said and I quote….” only republicans and ex-crack heads say thank-you to Jesus Christ” this and among other distorted and horrible remarks, were witnessed by a large live audience made up of Hollywood stars who clapped and laughed at all this and witnessed by home viewers covering a large world demography   Click right utube link to award night

I was so offended by this, that they would reduce Jesus Christ who sacrificed his life for our salvation to a joke, something to laugh at and to be used for entertainment. SHAME ON THEM!!!!

I know who I am and where I am going. One might say that not everybody believes. Sure! God doesn’t force Himself upon anyone and He has given us all a free will. Yes, but an evil, a sin has still be committed and worse, a sin that spans across a wide demography.  God makes it possible for everyone to find Him. At the end, there will be no excuse.  But judgement day will come for all and what will God say? The first thing He will say is ….”what have you done with my Son Jesus Christ who sacrificed his life for you, so that you may be saved?”

We will all have to answer this question and we will all be judged according to the faith and works we have done in Jesus’ name.

So then, wouldn’t one rather be judged by God who is the almighty, all loving all knowing, all forgiving God for all mankind,  rather than be judged by men who are flawed, biased, indiscriminate and judgmental????  In Revelation 21: 27 it says….” nothing imperfect shall enter heaven

Before Jesus, there was no heaven, Jesus made it possible for us to enter into God’s kingdom- Jesus the mediator who makes the impossible possible through His death and resurrection is what we should all aspire to.

We should not be toying with our salvation. Salvation is for eternity!

PRAYER:

Father in Heaven,

Please help those of little or no faith grow in love and understanding of the gift of Your Son Jesus Christ, who lived and sacrificed His life so that we may be saved. Please make us worthy of the glory of heaven, through Your Son Jesus Christ we pray.  AMEN!

A TRIBUTE TO YOU _HAPPY FATHER’S DAY_ TO ALL DADS, FATHERS & PAPAS

Image result for father's day prayer christian

Yesterday we celebrated Father’s Day. A very special day for all Fathers.

God thought it so important that He chose Joseph to be the father of Jesus Christ, His Son. God wanted to provide examples of how families should live together through the example set by Joseph:-a loving, steadfast, faithful servant of God who followed His will by marrying Mary and raising God’s precious child JESUS CHRIST.

I no longer have my father with me, but I want to give tribute to him and my husband- a father of two girls (and a dog called Frenchie pictured below, who is our furry daughter, whom my husband still fathers LOL!!!! HAHAHA!) and to all fathers living or non living for the important role they have or have had, in bringing up their children.

I believe Fathers contribute in building stronger and happier children, families and communities.

I’m a believer that a child will always need a father throughout his/her lifetime. Fathers should never stop being a father and a child never becomes too old to need a father.

Being an educator I see first hand the important role of a father, keeping in mind that a child’s personality and demeanour is well formed by the age of five.  Fathers can provide a loving family and an environment of love and support for the mother of his children and for the whole family.

Students look at the examples set by their fathers.  Students hang on to their father’s every word.  Fathers can do no wrong in the eyes of their children. Fathers can educate and teach their children about life. Fathers can heal the heart of a child’s broken heart. Fathers can cheer up a child when they are down. Fathers can give blessings to their children. Fathers can protect and provide support to a child when they are young and later on in life. Fathers can set goals and limitations for a child to help them grow into responsible, world citizens.

But most of all, a father’s role as being a leader and to direct the path of every child they father.  Boys learn to be boys from the examples set by their fathers. Men learn to be men by the examples set by their fathers.  So how crucial is the role of a father?  I would say extremely crucial.

Fathers need to take their role seriously.  A parenting course may help them be better fathers. Getting on well with the mother of their children is also important because they should function as one.  That means setting goals, standards and parameters for their children together, so that they are uniform and followed by both the mother and the father, so that there is no misunderstanding between them and their children.

Saying NO to a child from a young age, is not a dirty word but a lesson in teaching their child to become a better person, a lesson in teaching their child to become a well rounded, balanced individual.

This is not saying that fathers don’t make mistakes, they do, we all do. We are all humans and all humans are flawed with biases, but as parents we should aim to be the best versions of ourselves so that we can raise the best versions of our children.

I do know people who have been hurt by their fathers and I feel very bad for them, however we should never make excuses for our poor judgement and actions. I know people who have had a difficult childhood but never gave up and have grown to be strong and influential fathers because they looked up to God for help and guidance.

My suggestion to those who have been hurt, is to never give up, ask for help and allow Father GOD to be your heavenly Father who is madly in love with  all His children.

A big thank-you to my husband and Father, who with love and support have raised great daughters and sons to be great people they are today.  My gratitude goes to God my heavenly Father, who has blessed me with my husband and earthly Father.

The Lord’s prayer below is the prayer that Jesus recited at that very dark moment in the garden of Gethsemane just before His crucifixion. This is a very special prayer because it is a prayer of repentance, forgiveness, redemption, praise, healing and hope.

VICTOR OR VICTIM?

It’s easy to wallow in self pity and feel sorry for yourself, but that’s like a cancer, it just grows and with it comes more misery and self pity. It really never gets you anywhere.The enemy will put fear into you because he is the master of deception. Fear is often unfounded and often we exaggerate it because we predict into the future.  We all live in the world but we don’t have to be part of that. Fear does not come from God, it is put into our hearts by the enemy. Instead, we can surrender to God and allow Him to solve our problems because He has the big picture and He has the best solution for you. Just pray and trust in God and His Son JESUS CHRIST.

There are many things that separate us from God. These are: worshipping yourself(body image), money, careers, cars, property etc………. don’t get me wrong, God doesn’t want you to be poor. God wants you to have what is best for you and for you to focus on the things that are good and praiseworthy.

I don’t think I’m alone here, I believe we all go through doubt and fear (see other blog post (FEAR) but I always find my way when I think of myself as a victor because I know who I am in Christ. Praying to Jesus who knows me better than anyone else, even better than myself,  can steer me in the right direction and towards the best possible solution.

You need to know who you are in Christ and stand firm. Speak up for God. Pray and ask Him and let Him work out your problems through the Holy Spirit who can transform your world.

 

You can ask Jesus what it is that He wants you to do, the answer may come in the form of a feeling, idea, thought, memory or the words to a song etc. It’s the first thing that comes to mind and don’t over analyse it, remember that Jesus has all the answers. Jesus was there when you were born, when you were growing up and He knows the heart that God the Father gave you. BE VICTORIOUS NOT A VICTIM!!

The enemy wants to keep you in fear and away from God. The more the fear the more lonely you become and that’s exactly where the enemy wants to keep you. When you pray God aligns the heavenlies and sets the wheel in motion. You need to wait, trust and allow God to work in your favour. The answer may come to you in different forms, perhaps not what you would have expected but God wants the best for you and His way is better than you could have ever imagined.

This prayer from St. Teresa of Avila has been of great help to me.
