With a humble heart

Seek the Lord with a humble heart.
Seek Him on your knees and pray.
Worship Him with truthfulness and in spirit.
Don't just sing for the sake of singing
for it's displeasing to the Lord.

He's your everything.
Do not stray away from Him.
Without God, life's meaningless and empty.
Do not murmur or complain.

Be holy in the presence of God.
Treat God with full respect,
and with the fear of the Lord.

Do not take advantage of His grace and mercy.
Do not take Christ lightly.
Repent from your old ways.
Be convicted of your wrong doings.
Open your heart and ear to hear
the Lord's still small voice.
Be wise in everything you do,
and practise justice.
Do not judge your brother.
Always think positive,
and love one another.
Spend more quiet time with the Lord.

stay calm..

Our hearts are empty
when we do not place God first in our lives.
Therefore seek His face n know His heart's desires.
Understand His words n His deeds.
Feed on His spiritual food.
Drink the living water.

We have not died to our flesh.
The world is still pulling n luring
us deeper n deeper into the darkness.

God is with u in every situation.
Acknowledge His presence.
Learn to let God's love controls u.
let it overflows in u.

When all hope is lost
just know that the Lord will light your path.
Follow His lead
let Him be Lord over u

Dwell in His presence
think about Him throughout the day
Whenever u r about to do something
talk to Him first
let Him be part of everything u do

When u wake up, give praise to Him.
when u r to sleep,
thank Him for His goodness
n lay all your worries n burdens unto Him.

When u wake, let it be a new day
a new beginning with the Lord
Nothing is too late or too big for God to handle.
We serve a God of impossibilities.

Just listen to God’s voice, he is continuously speaking to you.

Stay calm in your spirit, let God be your guide,
let Him take over and follow His steps.
God has all His plans laid out in front of us,
all that is left is for us to see and follow.
Your heavenly Father loves you a lot,
He wants you to know that He has the best future ahead of you,
plans to prosper and not to harm you.
But what each and every of us need is peace,
to be still and know that He is God.
He is looking down on you, aware of your coming in and going out,
He sees everything and knows your thoughts.
He has His plans but only you could decide what your life is gonna be like,
for God had given us the greatest gift of all time – freewill.
Look to Jesus, look to that gentle shepherd,
who never forgets His sheep, not even one of them.
Let His gentle spirit guide you and be the light in your darkest hour.
Let there be no room for fear in your heart, for God is of love and grace.
Let the joy of the Lord be your strength!
When the storm arises, when the mountain seems too high,
call out upon the name of Jesus, for He hears the righteous prayer.
Be of comfort to know that our Abba Father, our best friend, our everything,
is not only up there looking over us,
but also living in us. He loves you dearly.

live to worhip Him

He is God and nothing is bigger than that.
So don’t fear or worry about your future for He has everything under control.
Sometimes we find it so hard to just trust Him with our lives
because we don’t see Him and we can’t understand His ways and it’s so frustrating at times.
But Jesus understands, He is not asking us to be perfect
but all He is asking is for us to trust in Him as He is our Abba Daddy.

God's plans are to prosper us and not to harm us.
God knows all the desires that is within our hearts
and He would fulfil them according to His will and divine timing.
For He has already promised us that
if we seek, we shall find
and if we ask, we would get an answer.

Everything that happens in our lives happened for a reason.
Each and every of our lives are like a puzzle.
Each of us plays a unique role that can only be carried out by us, not anyone else.
And as a puzzle, we can’t see the big picture

until the very end where every other lives had accomplished their callings in their lives.
In other words, we are part and parcel of God’s masterpiece.
That’s why what we could do is to give God our very best
and take delight in knowing that we are crucial in making God plans work.
So, commit your life to God.

Live your life as a pleasing sacrifice to God.
Live to worship the Lord,
sing praises unto Him for He loves it.
God will use you through your worship to Him.
He would use your voice to minister into hardened hearts.
But God wants you to be strong for Him.

Feed your spirit with the daily bread and that is His Word.
Let your spirit man be strong and healthy
for the Lord can only use you if you are well equipped.
So that when the road gets rough, when the storms come,
you would not waver but you would remain rooted on the ground
that God has placed you on.

Wherever you place your foot on, make it a Holy ground for God.
Be a living testimony for the Lord.
Shout His name wherever you go and shine for His glory.
His blessings and favour will follow you
when you had set your eyes upon God.
Start to be on fire for the Lord.
Let doing the Lord’s will be your only passion in life.
Jesus loves you, He really does.


put peace and love first in everything

Stay strong in the Lord,
by doing things according to His will.
Work together as one,
by tolerating one another.

Above all, put peace and love above everything else,
by thinking positively of other people.

Trust in the Lord
in everything that you do.
Seek Him
for advices and guidance,
for His will to shine ever brighter
in the darkest night.

Listen to what the Lord says,
and be sensitive to the Holy Spirit.
Know that the Lord hears all prayers,
and is always by your side.
Talk to Him in your quiet time,
and build a relationship with Him.
Know that He's with you,
even through the harshest times
when even your heart begin to doubt.
But know this..
even in your sleep and tiredness,
He comes and looks after you,
to protect and watch over you.
Ask yourself...
what greater power can come against
the power of the Almighty One?

Therefore seek the favour of the great I AM,
and see blessings into your life,
for who can shut the gates of the heavens
beside God Himself?
But also remember...God is just and righteous,
and do not overlook His judgement and anger.
Thus do not judge others so that you be not judged.
Be merciful so that you can receive mercy from God.

Be the salt of the earth; make a difference.
Be a history maker.
Everything starts with you yourself.
Love one another as you love yourself.
Obey the Word of the Lord.
Be aware of the traps
that Satan placed along your path.
Always be watchful and alert,
for the evil ones are ever ready to pull us down.
Fear the Lord and fulfill His commandments,
and you shall be called His child.

close to me

Words Close to me

Bee Gees “It’s only words..Karen Carpenter “Close to me..

Abraham heard God n His words were all he got that kept him going, not knowing where he was going.

Paul saw the glory of Jesus in a vision. “Saul, Saul why are u persecuting Me?”

From then on, visions n words from the Holy Spirit were his teacher n strength.

God spoke His truth in His words into a person’s heart. These words are close to the heart, like the Psalms in the bible.

They are living words close to me.

He is my El Shaddai and my El Shaddai says to me :

Knowing My heart is knowing My words in the bible.

Knowing Me just by My name and knowing Me truly are 2 different things,

like knowing My feelings and My character are totally two different things.

Reading the bible with true understanding is important.

Do not use human strength to think, but allow Me to open your heart, open your mind

to new revelations and discoveries.

There’re many truths in the bible that mere human eyes cannot see.

I see things differently. What are bad can become good in My perfect time and will.

I desire your undivided and true love from your heart,

and not something you’ve to do as a routine in order to please Me.

What really matters to Me is your heart and feelings towards Me.

Everybody has done something bad in his/her life.

I see things differently.

What are bad can become good in My perfect time and will.

I just want people to come back to Me,

and be with Me, to dwell in My presence,

and have fellowship and relationship with Me.

Therefore walk your life together with Me.

do not rush God

Love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, soul, and mind.

Obey the command to love one another.

Please the Lord in everything you do.

Always think positively.

Walk in your calling.

In whatever circumstances you are in,
remember to trust in the Lord in everything.
Always look to Him.
do not let your emotions or the circumstances carry you in the wrong way
making you run ahead of God.
one wrong decision in your haste,especially out of anger,
can have great consequences.
Instead be calm in your spirit so that you can hear His still small voice in you.
Ask for His wisdom in whatever decision you make.
Lean on Him. Not on your own strength.
Only by His grace and mercy can you overcome your difficulties.
Jesus is the only light that can lighten your path
and show you your way. ...

Wait upon the Lord for the right time and right place;

do not rush God, or go ahead of God,

but trust Him in all things, even the timing.

Be patient and wait upon the Lord;

Use wisdom in everything you do,

and be JUST.

Stay open-minded, and be wise all the time.

Always stay in the presence of the Lord.

Meditate upon His Word evryday; seek Him for guidance;

seek Him with all heart and all your soul;

lean not on thy own understanding,

but on His Word and His voice.

Knock, and the door shall be opened;

seek and you shall find.

Have faith in the Lord, for He 'll never forsake you.

Abide in His Word, and He'll abide in you.

Do not fear man or Satan,

for the Lord has won the battle for you.

Victory is in your hands.

Do not be anxious about tomorrow;

cast all your burdens unto the Lord.

Rest at His feet; know that He loves you.

Forgive your enemies, and love them.

Do not show favouritism to anyone,

but treat everyone fairly.

Live a righteous and holy life.

where i can cry

where i can cry
how i cry


Nothing is beginning to make any sense;
everything I knew had just shattered right before me
and the broken remains are all I can see,
things left behind for me to heal.
I never said it was easy to be alone;
I never said it was ever easy standing on my own.
Life is never easy; it's always going to be hard,
hard like my cold, empty, broken heart
that has been ripped apart.
My friends left me alone;
they left me to stand on my own;
without nothing to cling onto or hold.
My inside began to turn nasty and cold,
turning to become mean and hollow,
becoming a ghost to behold,
a ghost always feeling cold.
Bonds form and bonds break
but does that mean we give up?
My life is black, and so is my shady past.
I am walking down the path where I am always alone,
where my demons are always coming back...
to haunt me, the way it's supposed to be,
but it's not the way I want to live anymore,
even though my friends left me crying in the cold.
I shouldn't be like this, cracking and breaking on the inside.
I should be strong and move on,
and should make it through the day,
not wondering if tomorrow will be the same,
but what if I stumble and I fall?
Should I get up and carry on?
Or am i just running round n round in the same place?
The rain falls harder. I can't take it any longer.
It hurts too much even to think that they never loved me or cared.

The wind still blows through my hair.
Don't know why I am writing this poem,
this poem that describes the inner struggles I have with them.. my friends.
The people I used to hang around with.
The people I used to talk to on the phone,
but now I am all alone.
Too scared to stand on my own.
Still walking down the street.
Still looking down at my feet.
My arms still wrapped around me.
The harsh cold trapped me in this cruel, dark world that I am living in.
Bonds form and bonds break, they are our mistakes.
The ones we make. But does that mean we give up? No. Maybe, just maybe Hope shine through,
even in the darkest part of you.
It always shines through even when it's you against the world.
Hope will always shine through you.

Words will never express the pain and hurt I’ve felt over the years.
You’ve always told me that you love me.
I don’t doubt that; you said you knew me better than I knew myself.
Time and time again you said I wasn’t trying hard enough,
When I can say with all honesty that I have never tried so hard in my life.
I felt like someone was slicing through my chest. It hurt.
I never felt as though you were there for me.
I was one step away from killing myself.
I stuck around because I don’t like to give up and
I try so bloody hard, so don’t ever tell me that I don’t try hard enough.
You don’t know what trying is. What’s wrong with you?
Are you that afraid that your child is smarter than you?
My whole life, I’ve felt like the black sheep of the family,
left out, as though I don’t belong.
You turned to me and said “I always knew you were depressed”.
Those words felt like a thousand knives piercing my heart.
If you knew why, why on earth didn’t you try to help me?!
Did you know that my coping mechanism was to isolate myself?
Do you know how much that impacts on me now?
I currently can’t open up to anyone.
I opened up to you, my own mother,
when I needed you the most and I was pushed aside.
For all those years, I needed my mum.
You weren’t there. I had no one. Not a single soul.
I shouldered everything on my own. Everything.
I want to forgive you mum. I really do.
But right now, it doesn’t feel possible.
You have hurt me so much. I have to go back on medication. You don’t know that yet. I’m not coping.
The pain you and dad have caused me has cut me so deep it’s left wounds.
And sometimes wounds get infected.
I lay awake each night wondering if they’ll ever heal.

I’m all alone in this world.I don’t know what I am doing. I always make bad decisions. .People say I’m ugly. My face is long and my nose is big. So is my butt.I never finish school.. I can’t afford cute clothes. . I had an abortion. I don’t deserve to live. My kids deserve better.Nobody loves me. My parents kicked me out. My dad is on drugs. My mom is a drug addict. I’m an alcoholic.I used to sell my body. Some people call me a slut.
I have a lot of tattoos.I am a single parent. All my friends are fakes.If I really listened to everything people told me I’d already be dead. But I chose a new life. I decided to take my old life and kill it. I choose to be an optimist and know that God has a plan for me. Most people are selfish and self absorbed, so why should their opinion matter. I choose to surround myself with people who do like me for me. Even if it is only one or two people. one true friend is worth more than many who surround themselves around my beauty, my talent, my self worth just to be in my entourage. I’m glad God showed me the way. I’m thankful for second chances. I choose to accept myself and to give second chances to the people around me. I will accept the positive and shield the negative. For I know I have a purpose and my talents will not be wasted. Amen, never give up on yourself or your dreams, things change, people change physically and emotionally. Money does not rule the world.

Life would be meaningless without God in our lives,
because He is our strength n our hope.
Sometimes we don't know why we are even alive,
but know this..your every breath on this earth serves a purpose.
It's not by mistake you find yourself here on this planet.
It's not by chance that Jesus was born 2014 years ago.
The Creator loves His creations.
All He wants is you.
It pleases Him when all of His children come back to Him.
Let the joy of the Lord fills you,
so that you can be a blessing to others.
Things may not make sense now
n u don't understand how things in life work,
but God knows everything, what's best.
Just trust in Him.
God's plans are unlike man's plans.
We don't think like God thinks
n His ways are far better than our ways.
We tend to go astray n turn to the world for help,
when God is there all the time
with His hands wide open to help u.
Go back to the place
where u r loved most...His embrace.
Just tell Him how much you need Him
n He'll accept u n fill u with His love.

It is difficult to believe in things that seem so unreal and impossible. But that is what faith is, believing in the presence of doubt. So, take this step of faith, tell God that you are hopeless and helpless without Him, tell God how afraid you are, how angry and frustrated you are with life, how worried you are about the future, practically just how tired you are with life. Just close your eyes and start pouring out to God until you feel the weight on your shoulder is lighter. Let the tears, all the hurts and pain pour out from your heart. It is between you and God, no one else. There's no pretense, no hiding, no holding back. Be transparent in front of Jesus, lay all your junks and burden at His feet, for it is not for us to carry all these burden in life. It had never meant to be ours to bear.

Imagine an empty, where Jesus was once hung. Just think about His sacrifice and love for you. All Jesus ever cared about was you. nothing else mattered to Him but you. He loves you so much that His heart aches whenever He sees yours ache.

Jesus loves us dearly. We are the world to Him. Don't you think He would have a great future for us? Don't you think He would provide us with our every needs? Don't you think He loves us too much to let us suffer?

All our bondage have been broken when Jesus took our place at the cross. It is us today who bound ourselves to chains when the key to these chains were all this while in our hands. Let's make Jesus' death worth while. Go back to basics, go back to your first love, go back to the roots to why you cal yourself a Christian today. Going back to basics is always the best move to make when you are lost. Go back to your Abba Father.

my scars

my scars
my hurts

your God is big

Do not disobey God's commandments,
but walk in your calling.
Do not push aside or ignore the Holy Spirit,
but do things in the Lord's will,
and lean not on thy own understanding.
Trust the Lord in all things.

Do not delay God's plan upon your life,
or else you're hindering
God's blessings upon your life.
Indeed know that your God is BIG.
Just imagine how great God is;
stretch your imagination,
and multiply that a trillion times;
that's how great God really is.
God has said it again and again n the bible..
"Do not fear."
So take it seriously; do not be afraid.

And if God is your partner, dream BIG,
for God is a big God.
Just do your VERY best, give your ALL,
and let God do the rest; God cannot fail.
But do not go ahead of God,
taking the lead yourself,
but let God be God, and see the glory of God.
For God is real.

He really cares for you, but are you ready
to accept the Lord as master and Lord?
God'll manifest His power through you,
if you take the first step to say...
"God, I'm ready; use me."
and mean it when you say it.

He is a righteous God,
and you shall see the day
when righteousness reigns,
even though the situation now
does not show that.

Do not be discouraged
by the things you're facing now.
Whatever you sow, you shall reap.
Read the bible, and connect
everything there's in it,
with your own life,
and you'll see miracles happen in your life.
Stay strong in your faith,
and keep praying without ceasing.

I the Lord am saying to you....

I give My grace to the humble.
My first grace to you is ...
know the level of your own deception.
Knowing this brings true humility.
Like Paul, you must be struck blind
in order to see.
True humility is agreement with the Truth

It profits not for you to compare youself with others.
If you keep looking to Me,
then you'll go far.
Many are distracted by looking at themselves.
Your own reasoning only leads you
to do wrong things in the wrong way.

You'll ONLY have wisdom and judgements
unless you abide in Me.
The more you mature, the more you'll know
your desperate need of Me.
Only when you allow who you are
to be exposed...then only you'll walk in the light.

the Lord is saying to you....

Always trust in the Lord.
Know that He is always by your side.
Seek the Lord in the times of your troubles.
Tell your needs to God,
and when you ask from Him,
have no doubt at all.
Know the Word of God, and practise it.
Allow the Lord take control over your life.
From a sincere heart, desire Godly things,
and turn away from the evil thoughts.

Desire and have peace with one another,
for this pleases the Lord,
and love one another.
Obey the commandments,
for if you disobey one, it means disobeying all.

Always think positively,
and have compassion towards one another.
Know that you're a child of God,
and your duty is to live a life that pleases Him.

Do not murmur or complain,
but be contented in the things that you have.
Learn the principles of God's Word, and practise them.
Make sure that everything that proceeds
out of your mouth is the truth,
that brings blessing to the people surrounding you.

Love the Lord with all your heart,
all your soul, and all your mind.
Remember that the Lord is always for you,
if you're under His favour.
The Lord knows your every desire,
and He shall fulfill them according to His time and His will.
But if your desires are to bring pleasure to yourself,
then the Lord shall not fulfill them for you,
because you must die to self.

Discover the true meaning of Christianity,
and build an intimate relationship with God,
a bond that no evil can shake, nor storms can destroy,
for what God builds, no one can destroy.
Believe in the power of His name,
and you shall see miracles.

Jesus died on the cross, not only to give salvation,
but also to bring healing and freedom and victory.
Jesus went to and gone through hell for your sake.
Stay faithful and loyal to the Lord,
for our God is a jealous God;
He longs, day and night, for your attention and your time.

Always be merciful to others,
as the Lord has been merciful to you.
Forgive sincerely and completely from your heart,
and love one another with agape love,
as the Lord also has forgiven you your many sins,
and also love you by dying for you on the cross.
You can never repay back what the Lord has done for you.
At least you can forgive and love others in return.

your destiny is far better than u can ever imagine

God loves you and you know it.
But what you need to do now is to know God deeper. . .
to know Him as God, also as a friend in times of need,
a savior … a father.

The Lord knows that you have many unanswered questions,
whose lines and boundaries that are blurred,
many gray areas between black and white.
But this is life.
It is your walk with Jesus,
your daily encounter with Him.

Let the Holy Spirit be your teacher
as He guides you through the baby steps that you are now taking.
Don’t act too fast, but slow down;
just listen to your heart.

Have the peace of God in you,
for no fear, confusion or doubt should be in your heart,
if you have Jesus dwelling in your heart.

Let the joy of the Lord be your strength,
let your days be filled with laughter and blessings from above.
Let every single day be a celebration with Jesus.

Unless you empty your cup, you can’t be filled with God’s living water.
Feed your spiritual body,
let the soul in you grow,
to be more and more like Jesus.

Have a teachable heart. (Jesus said, "Learn of Me.."Matthew 11:29)
Hold God’s hand as He guides you through your darkest path,
when you think you’re all alone in this mess.

Search your heart and know that somewhere deep down inside there’s a God;
there’s a savior living in you.
He deserves your worship and praises;
He desires your time and love.
This still, small voice that’s in you,
it will help you sail through the storm;
it will be the light unto your path.

Being a Christian is not about being converted into another religion,
but is to know who you are – a child of God,
the heir to the Kingdom of God.
It’s about knowing your position, believing it and living it.

This is a wonderful journey that you have embarked on
and your destiny is far better than what this world could offer,
even better than what you’ve ever imagined or dreamed.

covenant keeping God

Put your trust and hope in the Lord.
Don't be discouraged, when things do not seem to go your way.
Do not be afraid, but be of good courage.
What's there to fear, if The Lord is always beside you?
Trust in the Lord in everything that you do.
Be patient, and wait upon Him.

The world may think that you're foolish,
but remember, they said the same thing to God's prophets.
Remember you're serving the Almighty God.

Please God in everything that you do.
Ask for His grace and mercy everyday.
Repent from your sinful ways.
Do not have evil thoughts of others,
and the Lord shall strengthen you daily.

Do not give up easily, but press on all the time.
remember, everthing that happens, happens for a reason.
You might not see it now, but you'll one day.
When you find yourself in difficulties,
and it seems you can't search and reach God's hand,
know that, you can always trust His heart.
God is always thinking of you.

Jesus will never forsake us.
He knows when we're down or upset or lonely or hurt.
He feels it too.
No matter how much we've sinned and hurt His heart,
He's ever ready to forgive us,
to accept us with opened arms.

Our God is a covenant keeping God.
This day, decide to make a covenant with teadHim,
and begin to live the life that pleases Him.
Don't fall into temptation, but stay firm in His teachings.
Be a person, who focus on the promises of God.

Do not allow emotions pull you down,
or the circumstances overtake you.
Instead, think positively with a strong mind,
and praise God with a joyful heart.
Be thankful.

Let the love of God fills your heart;
let it overflows to others.
The Lord's command is to love one another.

Do not have doubts in your heart,
as regards your faith in Christ.
Allow the Spirit of God take control over your life,
and you'll see the glory of the Lord.

you are loved

When we struggle against many things in life..temptations, selfish desires, anger, bitterness,
even smoking, gambling, fun and pleasure and so on,
we get weary and worn out, because it's tiring and a hard thing to do.
And we find no rest.
And here Jesus said to us,"Come to Me and I will give you rest.'
The Lord wants us to stop struggling, come to Him and find rest in Him,
to sit at His feet and learn of HIm "for He is gentle and lowly of heart."
And let His peace fills you.

How and why you can find rest in Him? Because Jesus said,
"For My way is easy and My burden is light."
His way is higher. He has the best for us in His heart.
His way is easy and comfortable, without so much struggle and failure.
His way will not be hard on you, for God will always provide a way of escape.
His way is tailor-made for you. It's comfortable because it fits you perfectly like a coat.
He knows your weaknesses and abilities.
You only need to come to Him and learn of Him,
to lean on Him and let Him take over
and you will see breakthrough in your life,
no matter how bad your situation, no matter how impossible the outlook
you will see victory. You will have peace.

As in Psalm 23, even if you walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
it'll not come near you. It'll remain a shadow.
You will fear no evil for the Lord is with you.
If God is for you, who and what can come against you?
The Lord will even prepare a table for you in the presence of your enemies.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow you.
You will lie down on green pasture to rest, and find peace and sleep.
The Lord watches over you for He never slumbers.
No need to be anxious. No need to fear.
The Lord will lead you in the paths of righteousness.

The Lord says to you,
"You don't have to do it all by yourself.Let Me do it for you.
Just hold My hand and lean on My strength.
Let My wing carry you. Be strong in My strength.
Be strong by leaning on Me. Find rest in Me.
And you will run and faint not, because I will carry you
and you can climb the mountain and soar like the eagle.

If you cry out to Me,"Lord, help me! I need You! I cannot handle this on my own!"
Then the Lord will say to you,"Yes you cannot but I can.Let Me take over."
God wants us to come to Him and lean on His strength, so He can help us.
God can only help when you look to Him.
When you seek Him, you will find Him.
"My eyes look to the hills.Where does my help comes from?
It comes from the Lord."
When you are in deep trouble, there is no one who can really help except the Lord.
like David who strengthened himself in the Lord.
When everything and everyone turn against you,
your Heavenly Father is the only One who will help you through.
He will come and be the strength of your life.
He will not leave you weak and helpless.
He gives you the breakthrough you need.

"Until you find peace and rest in God,
God cannot do anything for you.
When we take charge of our lives,
God steps aside.

When we want to do things our own ways,
God let us.

But when we say, "God I need You. I cannot handle by myself."
God comes in and begins to work even bad things into good for those who love Him.
God watches over everyone, but He only protects those who obey and love Him.
Therefore Run back to the Arms of love.
Run back to your Abba Father who loves you.

Trust in the Lord. He is the provider of all things.
Find rest in Him for He knows all our needs.
Have peace within you. Our Lord is the Prince of peace.
Therefore have His peace in you.
Have faith in your heavenly Father."

an attitude of thanksgiving

"Do not worry or be anxious, but in every circumstance, in everything....
give thanks to God in your prayers to Him." (Philppians 4:6)

The solution to worry is not prayer but thanksgiving.
When we come to God in prayer because of a need or worry,
God wants us to be thankful and grateful for what He has already done for us.
If your heart is right and thankful, it pleases God to give you even more.

God does not want an act of prayer or an act of thanksgiving.
God wants an attitude of thanksgiving in our hearts,
even before we pray or say anything.
God sees the heart.

Most people stress on the asking...just keep asking until you get what you want.
But if God sees unthankfulness and an ungrateful heart,
your prayers are displeasing to Him.

If my daughter asks me for Apple doughnuts, and I know her heart is grateful,
is it easy for me to say no?
From the way she asks, you can tell whether she's grateful or not.
When you know her heart is right and grateful, you'll love to give her more
to see her happy.

When a son asks for bread, does the father gives a stone?
Or asks for a fish and the father gives a scorpion?
Whether I meet my daughter's request or not, it's for her good and her future.
Which is more important...her selfish request or her future?

A person with a thankful and a grateful heart is not a selfish person.
God treasures a thankful heart, 

an attitude of gratitude for the things already given.
It pleases God to give even more.

to love even though it's impossible n looks stupid to do so

Love thy neighbor as you love yourself.
This is the second greatest commandment Jesus gave.

Yes, the Lord hears your cries...cry for help, cry for grace, cry for justice.
He knows what you are going through
and He wants you to know that you are not in this alone.

The Lord is always good to us,
though many times circumstances show otherwise.
But take a look at Job, take a look at Paul,
take a look at all those who had stayed faithful to God.
They were persecuted when they were doing the right thing.
They were tortured because of their faith.
Jesus was crucified because of His love for us.

All the great men and women in the bible have something in common.
Their love for God's people outweighs any suffering they had to go through.
What gave them this determination is their love for others.
It's difficult to love those who had done wrong to us,
It's difficult to look past that ugly face to see the lost soul inside our enemies.
But that is what Jesus is calling us to do,
to love even though it's impossible and stupid to do so.
As Christians, we are fools in the eyes of men
but what matters most is that God is pleased and happy with us.

Jesus came to this Earth as a man, so that He could die for you and me.
He was God, who became a servant.
He was God, who died a convict's death.
But God is saying to us today that "it is finished."
We don't have to suffer anymore to save ourselves.
It is already done!
All that is left to do is believe.
Everything in this world belongs to God
and we as His children have everything too!

"For all things are yours: whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas, or the world or life or death,
or things present or things to come - all are yours. And you are Christ's, and Christ is God's."
(1Corinthians 3: 21-23 )

Victory is ours since the moment you believed that Jesus is the Son of God.
We no longer have to fight this battle as the battle is already won!
No, despite all these things,
overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. (Romans 8 : 37 )

It is difficult to believe in things that seem so unreal and impossible.
But that is what faith is about, believing without the presence of doubt.
So, take this step of faith.
Tell God that you are hopeless and helpless without Him.
Tell God how afraid you are,
how angry and frustrated you are with life,
how worried you are about the future,
practically just how tired you are with life right now.

Just close your eyes and start pouring out to God
until you feel the weight on your shoulder is lighter.
Let the tears, all the hurts and pains pour out from your heart.
It is between you and God, no one else.
There's no pretense, no hiding, no holding back.
Be transparent in front of Jesus, laying all your junks and burden at His feet,
for it is not for us to carry all these burden in life.
It had never meant to be ours to bear.

Imagine an empty cross, where Jesus was once hung.
Just think about His sacrifice and love for you.
All Jesus ever cared about was you;
nothing else mattered to Him but you.
He loves you so much that His heart aches whenever He sees yours aching.

Jesus loves us dearly.
We are the world to Him.
Don't you think He would have a great future for us?
Don't you think He would provide us with our every need?
Don't you think He loves us too much to let us suffer?

All our bond ages had been broken when Jesus took our place at the cross.
It is we today who bound ourselves to chains
when the key to these chains is all this while in our hands.

Therefore let's make Jesus' death worth while.
Go back to the basics; go back to your first love.
Go back to the roots to why you call yourself a Christian today.
Going back to basics is always the best move to make when you are lost.
Go back to your Abba Father.


the bitter autumn rain

[Walking out alone in the heavy autumn rain,
letting my tears wash away my pain,
my horrifying pain that I want it to go away.
the rain n wind gets harder blowing me to the side
knowing I am cracking and breaking inside.
empty and alone, trying to hide.
the rain is beating hard,
as i feel the beat of my broken heart
that is slowly falling apart.
can i find solace in the rain
taking away my pain.

i see the reflection of me,
in the broken pool of waters
the tears i cry i can hardly see.
my eyes are red,
my hair blowing in the wind,
the scars on my face, slowly are
disappearing without a trace.

walking around, there is nothing
not even the smallest thing to make
as I look down, staring at my feet.
the feelings of self doubt,
feelings of lost within a crowd.
feeling empty and alone.
trapped in this world.

the wind blows through my hair,
as the rain rushes down,
making me feel free for a moment
putting me at ease, at peace for now.

as i start to breathe again....

taken from "rain", "breathe" by Sarah

What has the autumn done to us?
That endless wind, that heavy rain...

My eyes with tears and bitter pain.
It's over now, the autumn's game
though it hurts a lot
We could be happy, but we're not
Why is life so cruel and sad?
It's stolen happiness we've had

when heartache appears in our lives
we are forced to face bittersweet truths
we are reminded that within each challenge
there is always a higher offering
although hidden from our view
we must raise our thinking, open our hearts
and recognize that we are being called to a new stage in life,
a higher calling, a new dimension in life
unfamiliarity can be frightening
and new paths look uncertain.
but what is life, if not a journey into the wondrous unknown?
look around...grace and beauty can still be found within pain.
the only lock,keeping us trapped or blind or stuck is fear.
the only cage is the condition of our minds.

Can we change the past?
No. It’s as hard as granite, as immovable as a mountain.

Cold Mountain Movie says,
“You can grieve endlessly for the loss of time and damage done.
For many things that happened.
You can grieve on and on.
You can grieve your heart out,
And in the end, you’re still where you are.”
All your grief has not change a thing.
What you have lost will not be returned to you.
It will always be lost.
You are left with only scars.
All you can choose to do is go on or not.
But if you go on, it’s knowing you carry your scars with you.”

Grief and bitterness can only keep you a prisoner of the past.
What’s done is done.
Regret cannot change what has already happened.
No matter how many times we say “if only.”
No matter how bitterly we blame and accuse.
bitterness can only ruin us.
We will become prisoners in our own dark souls,
Suffocated by our own brooding thoughts.
You reap your own thoughts
Yes, we must learn to move on,

No matter the past.

We cannot change what has happened.
We do have one power…we can trust God to redeem the past.
If we let Him.
God can use the evil of what has happened
And transforms it into something good.

Do right and don’t go against your conscience.
Sometimes you doubt yourself.
Have peace in your heart; hold on to the things you believe in.
Put your trust in God
For He’ll never leave you.
He’s ever faithful, the One who created you.
Don’t let others pull you down.
Don’t let others talk you out of things.

People may not understand you, but God understands.
If you believe, you can touch the supernatural.
You can see miracles in your life.
It’s not easy to put the past behind.
But look what the future holds for you.
With God’s help, you can almost do anything
Including overcoming your fears and pain.

Everybody deserves a second chance.
Hatred in your heart'll only bring death.
Be slow to anger and judgment,
or judgment shall come upon you.

Always care for one another.
Love others as you would love yourselves.
Have a caring and loving heart,
just like Jesus and reach out to others.
Be compassionate towards others.
Don't judge a person by the looks.
Go and preach the Gospel,
and in wisdom,
because you must be wise
in everything you do.
Be hot for Christ.

Don't take things for granted;
be united,
and don't be easily offended,
but always give and take with one another.
And have love in your own family,
and also in the church.

In your hour of need,
always run to the Lord for help;
cry out to Him; have faith in Him.

The Lord has given everyone a gift
to hear His voice.
He shall speak to you if you're willing to hear.
God is always speaking.
Hear the Lord's voice in your heart,
and He shall guide you through it.
Have faith and believe His words.
Don't be proud and think
that you're full of knowledge.

Obey His words and commandments.
Obey His commandment
to keep the sabbath holy.
Don't be just be a Sunday Christian,
but take notice of people
around you in your church,
and in other nations.

Many people are suffering.
So count your blessings.
The road to heaven is narrow;
so you have to lean onto God.
Allow the Holy Spirit to
guide you in whatever you do.
you are not alone

Your voice, Your spirit always gives me courage to face the world
I am not alone.
thank You Lord, I will never be alone.

1John 16:7-13(paraphrased):
I will not leave you alone. I will send the Helper, the Holy Spirit to you .
And when He has come, the Spirit of truth, He will guide you into all truth.

My Love for you will never fail.
Trust in Me, and I shall straighten your path.
Have faith and hope in Me.

Everyday is a new day and a new start.
Put the past behind you, and work your future.
Do not feel despaired, but instead rejoice
For the I shall return, and My children will return to Me,
And they will be with Me for eternity.

Work your way to heaven.
It’s a narrow and bumpy road,
But never give up.
Cling on to My Word;
Let the My Word be printed in your heart.

Enjoy the life that I’ve blessed you with.
You’re here for a purpose and a reason;
It’s not by accident you’re here.

Never let men pull you down,
Or tell you who you are,
Because you’ve a father that’s almighty,
The creator of the heavens and the earth;
So who shall you fear?

Seek the Kingdom of God,
And everything shall be added unto you

God is in our midst in our everyday life.
Supernatural things do happen,
but with our naked eyes we can’t see it.
It’s only through the spirit that things are revealed to us.
It’s only in times of desperation
that we would turn to a higher power for help,
for we know that with our own strength
we can do nothing about it.

But just imagine spending your whole life
with that person of great authority
and having His favor over you….
you would be able to do things
you thought were impossible.

Many things happen we find hard to understand,
and as unique and special we may be,
creation can never out beat the Creator.
We are only part and parcel of the His masterpiece.
As small as we are, we are part of this great art piece,
for every one of us could be a history maker,
with the potential to be.
It’s all determined by the choices we make
and the life we choose to live.
The light is there but we don’t see it because we are blind.
But you can see through our hearts,
and feel the presence of God around you;
and feel His love too.
But unless we have the desire and passion we won’t get it.
Everyone of is imperfect but God is flawless and perfect.
And we are made righteous through Him so we can be like Him.
All it requires is great faith.
Faith can move mountains.
The clock is ticking and time flies
So capture the moment and make it a fresh start
