Doing Good?

How can i become more like Jesus?  How can i show His love today?  How can i make a difference in someone’s life?  LORD, help me to become more like you.  Show me how i can love every soul like you did.  Show me where i need to do better in doing good.  Your love compels me, LORD.  I want to be like you.  I love and adore you Jesus.  Amen.

Are you a fisherman?

When Jesus commanded His followers to be fishers of men, what did he mean?  Was He wanting that we go to fish-centers to learn how to fish?  Was He wanting that we get together with other fishers discussing how to fish?  Was He wanting that we pray that fish be caught?  Was He wanting more fish equipment would be created and distributed?  Was He wanting that we sponser fish conventions?  Was He wanting  that we encourage others to fish?  Was He wanting that we make fish calls?  Was He wanting that we discuss how to fish?

Or was He wanting that we catch fish that we might be called A Fisherman of God?

Strength in Weakness Perfect

Someone gave me a poem about the All-suffiecient Grace.  I didn’t even realise i needed this reminder, but i did.  Did you know that God always gives suffient grace, for each trial, for each conflict and for each temptation?   Our God is an awesome God who glorifies Himself through our weakness.  Nobody can be to weak, no one can be strong enough.  His grace will always be enough for every situation.

Now, how do i remember this?  I think of that verse in 2 Corinthians 12.  What Jesus said a long time ago, but still is ever so real today.  “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”  I encourage you to.  Whoever you are that you may accept this grace and let your life through it glorify God!

A Happy Funeral

Today was the day we gathered to honor a woman who was a huge blessing while on earth.  A woman who deserved to see her Maker.  A woman who knew she was Heaven-bound by the grace of God.  A hundred years on earth is many years.  She waited soo long to see Jesus and now she is at His side.  Singing praise songs with the angels and children of God.  In Paradise where she belongs.

I pray dear God, that i can make it too.  I have faith you died for me.  That you forgave me and i can live a victorious life.  I have joy in you.  Joy that will never fade.  Joy that grows with each new day with You.

What can i memorise?

I really enjoy memorising scripture.  It is such a blessing to me.  I tend to remember longer passages than just a verse.  I enjoy memorising whole chapters. 

I just finished memorising John 1-The Word became Flesh. (The first 18 verses).

What chapters would be chapters that you would say truly deserve memorisation?

Back Home Again!

I want to praise God for an awesome Summer.  A time where i could grow closer to Him.  I feel like a totally new person.  I can hardly remember what it was like to serve Him back then.  I am so grateful to my Father in Heaven that i can publicly write Him praises.  For always being so good no matter what.

My regular schedule is now back and i want to praise God for His promises.  To always be there.  To always want the best for me.  To speak to me.  To help me love others.  To never leave me.  To never forsake me.  To be my light.  To be my God.

A TRUE FAMILY~

Welcome To The Family – Psaltys kids praise

My cousins, my siblings and me sang this song at my Grandparents 50th Anniversary.  I finally found the song and am glad to share it with you.  It was such a huge blessing.

Welcome to the family
We’re glad that you have come
To share your life with us
As we grow in love and
May we always be to you
What God would have us be
A family always there
To be strong and to lean on.

(refrain)

May we learn to love each other
More with each new day, may words of love be on our lips
In everything we say
May the spirit melt our hearts
And teach us how to pray….
That we might be a true family.
(repeat)

I have decided to follow Jesus!

I was watching a video today and was reminded of the commitment i made to God when i gave my life to Him.  I had decided and now there is no turning back.  Even when no one goes with me.

I tend to rely on others.  Look to see how they are doing.  Call a friend when i need support.  Why?  Why, when i decided to follow Jesus??  I think the only reason there is no turning back is because He will never fail me.  Each day that comes, no matter how hard it may be, is just one day closer to seeing my Saviour face to face.  It gives me hope and strengthens me for what i do not see.

Rooted in Christ

In youth the other night we had the topic “Rooted in Christ”.

By identifying winds of our christian walk, we could find ways to deal with them.  Winds such as worldly influences, doubts, temptations, peer pressure, seeing others blown over and not getting up, media, consumerism and other discouragements.

These winds can destroy our roots in Christ, namely our faith.  We need to be mindful of our doctrine. (“Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming.”-Ephesians 4:14)  We are constantly bombarded with information, theories and ideas.  We need to sift through what is true.  (“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.” – Colossians 2:6-8 )

What can i do to become more rooted and established in the faith??  I can excersize applying what i believe.  I can know my Bible, grow in knowledge of God’s word.  I can spend time with other christians.  I can be watchful, be careful who teaches me, what i read, and go back to the standard of God’s word.  I can learn from mistakes.  I can read and pray.

But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. -James 1:6

i heard this song…

es kann nicht immer nur die Sonne scheinen,

es muss auch ab und zu der Himmel weinen…

It was a german song by a german folk singer Heintje.  It was all about how we can’t enjoy the sunshine if we never experience rain.  This gave me some answers to why i often wonder why i don’t ‘feel’ saved, and why sometimes i feel as though i could burst with love for my Saviour.

I came to the conclusion that the reason i have mountain top experiences is because i spend time in the valleys.  If i never had hard times, then i couldn’t truly feel so complete at other times.  I used to wonder why, but now i know.  Praise God!
