Whatever you sow you will reap

In Judges 1:15 the Bible talk about Adoni-Bezek, A Canaanite King who was pursued by the children of Israel.  When he was captured they cut off his thumbs and big toes.  Adoni-Bezek exclaimed, “Seventy Kings with their thumbs and big toes cut off used to gather scraps under my table, as I have done, so God has repaid me.” Because God is patient, many people nowadays think that they are getting away with wrong doing.  However, God’s patience must never be mistaken for His approval.  For the Bible clearly states in Galatians 6:7 “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A…

All great changes are preceded by chaos

  “Snakes shed their skin to allow for further growth and to remove parasites that may have attached to their old skin.  A snake sheds anywhere from a couple of times a week to once a year depending on its size, age and health. The entire shedding process lasts for several weeks. The skin begins to turn dull and gray when a snake is preparing to shed.  Snakes are uncharacteristically aggressive during this time because of their vulnerable state.  Rough objects are commonly used to assist in the shedding process; it uses the rough object to anchor the old skin as it does…

Stumbling block to emotional healing

Life sometimes throws a curve ball our way so forceful that our plans and dreams are shattered into pieces and leave us so broken to the point where it is easy to get stuck in our pain.   It takes great courage to get up and move on but so worth it because for every end there is a new beginning. will not in any way undermine the grief that is associated with the lost of a loved one, the end of a relationship, loss of a job or any other tragedy that you may have faced.  However, someone was hurt…

HOLD ON TIGHTLY TO THE GIVER AND LOOSEN YOUR GRIP ON THE GIFT

  The story is told of The Shunammite woman who was very kind to Elisha.  In return for her kindness Elisha asked her what he could do for her.  The Shunammite woman said she desired nothing.  But the truth is she desires nothing because she was contented with her life and I would imagine given up on her hope of having a child.  Elisha knew otherwise and despite her objection he prayed that the Shunammite woman would conceive and surely she did and gave birth to a son. At the age of 12 the boy died.   In bitter distress The…

Flattery

Proverbs 29:5-6 “A person who flatters his neighbour is spreading a net for him to step into. To an evil person sin is bait in a trap, but a righteous person runs away from it and is glad.”   ecently a lady walked up to me and started to admire the shiny bracelet I had on my hand. Then she went on to tell me that I look like someone who is fashionable and that she could get me VIP pass to attend an event with her and that I would be an ideal candidate to model brand name items that her company would…

Steps I took to survive the storms of divorce

In my previous blog “Weathering the storms of divorce” I shared my emotional roller coaster I experienced during the separation and subsequent divorce after 17 years of marriage. I was at a very dangerous cross road and I had to decide whether I would die for the husband who had betrayed my trust or live for my children. I chose to live and fought with depression and hopelessness to regain myself. Here are some of the steps I took to survive the storms of divorce: I sought professional counselling – I decided to seek professionally counselling. Fortunately for me I was studying…

GIVE GOD THE BROKEN PIECES

    There are no appropriate adjectives to describe how it feels to have a broken heart.  Only those who have experienced it truly understand the pain.  Hearts are broken as a result of many reasons such as the death of a loved one, betrayal, and the end of a relationship.  As far as I know there are no medicines or physical treatments that are available to heal a broken heart. No wonder the Lord makes it a priority to be close to the broken-hearted  because He knows He is the only one who can heal this type of wound . …

I have all right to be an angry single mother!

got divorced after 17 years of marriage. I am in my forties, raising two kids with minimal child support. My ex remarried to a younger woman four months after the divorce was finalized, has a new family, prospering financially and has moved on with his new life. While my life on the other hand revolves around the children: homework, dinner, doctor and dentist appointment and so forth. How did I get here? After all, I did the right thing; I got married to a nice Christian man before I had my children as the last thing I wanted was to…

YIELD TO THE PROCESS

Have you ever notice that when you are hurrying you seem to make a mess of things, no wonder it is said that “haste make waste?” It may sound like a cliche’ but anything worthwhile in life takes time. When we rush we tend to miss important details. Slow down, do not manipulate the situation, thing or person. In the right time if it is meant to be things will fall into place. Yield to the process.
