*I'm just a soul whose intentions are good, Oh Lord! please don't let me be misunderstood*


***  JANUARY AND FEBRUARY 2012 ***


When heart is not right with God, even the body suffers.

When I worship, I would rather my heart be without words than my words be without heart.

A mother at most times understands what a child does not say.

When God wants to do an impossible task He takes an impossible man and crushes him.

Rewards of Pride are Sorrow and Despair.

Pride is the mask of one’s own faults.

Love covers everything while Sin darkens us all.

All the water in the world, however hard it tries, can never sink the smallest ship unless it gets inside, and all the evil in the world, the blackest kind of sin, can never hurt you in the least, unless you let it in.

Almighty God with all seeing eyes looks for constancy of character.

If you can’t be thankful for what you receive, be thankful for what you escape.

Trials in Life are tools in God’s hands to mold and reveal to us things we might not understand.

Do not fear Death but rather an unlived life.

God favors a gentle and quiet spirit.

Politeness is the flower of humanity.

When the devil is called the god of this world, it is not because he made it, but because we serve him with our worldliness.

Life is like a book; ink it beautifully and color it with love, peace, gentleness, patience, joy, faithfulness, kindness, goodness and self-control.

God’s love toward mankind is the gift of life and the precious gift of His Son; don’t neglect nor shun those gifts.

Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.

An iota of sinful act of evil harvest a lifetime of sorrows.

Every guilty person is his own hangman.

When you resort to shouting in conflict, you are reacting in the flesh. You have lost control of the only person you can control: yourself.

Wisdom is, and starts with, the humility to accept the fact that you don’t have all the right answers, and the courage to learn to ask the right questions.

Compromise whispers; Conscience sings.

It is strange that while praying, we seldom ask for a change of character, but always a change of circumstances.

Compromise a little; Sorrow aplenty.

Love is truthful when it is not on demand or under obligation and with conditions.

The optimist says, the cup is half full. The pessimist says, the cup is half empty. The child of God says; My cup runneth over.

A grateful heart is one that finds the countless blessings of God in the seemingly mundane everyday life.

You cannot see faith, but you can see the footprints of the faithful.

Darkness and Light cannot stay under the same roof.

The devil tempts all men, but idle men tempt the devil.

Who has not served cannot command.

A great man can bend and stretch.

A weak person goes where he is smiled at.

I am not concerned that I am not known, I seek to be worthy to be known.

Temper keeps getting us into trouble and Pride shuts us there.

Flies never visit an egg that has no crack.

The aim of argument, or of discussion, should not be victory, but progress.

Loose tongues are worse than wicked hands.

When your mouth stumbles, it’s worse than feet.

Silence is a true friend who never betrays.

Satan sells Fear, unknowingly we overbought; Humans easily beguiled and so unsure should rely their all upon One Eternal Almighty Jehovah God.

Our God is Jehovah of hosts, who can summon unexpected reinforcements at any moment to aid His people. Believe that He is there between you and your difficulty, and what baffles you will flee before Him, as clouds before the gale.

Deny your weakness, and you will never realize God’s strength in you.

Neutral men are the devil’s allies.

An ounce of mother is worth a pound of clergy.

Always Remember, the Devil can cite Scripture for his purpose.

Imagination is the eye of the soul.

God is always nearest to those with broken hearts and weeping spirit.

Our problems may stay, our circumstances may remain, but we know God is in control. We are focused on His adequacy, not our inadequacy.

When prosperity comes, do not use all of it.

***  MARCH AND APRIL 2012 ***

Safety is from God alone, trust Him completely and He will deliver.

Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid… for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

Do not confined and imprisoned by own personal attitudes, and be blind to the feelings and convictions of others.

True Fasting is not outwardly but more inward, Genuine Fasting is not physical but more Spiritual.

Prayer is submission to God from the heart to His plans and intentions for our lives rather than petitioning to God to answer our demands.

Do not take the lower and easier fork in the road which turns you away from God; choose the higher, more disciplined and difficult road to heaven.

True repentance is to cease from sinning, from the mind and also from the heart.

Know Thyself before you judge others.

Fear him who fears not God.

Man does what he can, God does what He wills.

A dream which is not interpreted is like a letter which is not read.

Make peace, make amends; peace and joy will naturally find you.

Deflate your ego, Humble yourself and Thy spiritual self elevates.

Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called.

When we take one step to God, He takes seven steps towards us.

Now faith is the substance of things hopes for, the evidence of things not seen.

Change yourself and let others change themselves.

Manners makes the person.

The measure of a man is the way he bears up under misfortune.

A knife wound heals but a tongue wound festers.

Nothing is more useful than silence.

By words the mind is winged.

Soft words win hard hearts.

A wise head makes a closed mouth.

Opinion is the main thing which does harm or good in the world. It is our false opinions that ruin us.

Good seed makes good crop.

A reed before the wind lives on, while mighty oaks do fall.

When the wine is in, the wit is out.

Faults are beauties in a lover’s eye.

A nail will come out, but its hole remains.

A hungry stomach has no ears.

Choose rather to punish your appetites than be punished by them.

If you are an anvil, be patient; if you are a hammer, be strong.

Smooth hands love the labor of others.

Give neither counsel nor salt till you are asked for it.

Just as a flower which seems beautiful and has color but no perfume, so are the fruitless words of the man who speaks them but does them not.

Time, the devourer of everything.

Age carries all things away, even the mind.

So rare is the union of beauty with modesty.

Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.

Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.

The strong do what they have to do and the weak accept what they have to accept.

He who tip-toes cannot stand; he who strides cannot walk.

Seek not the things that are too hard for thee, neither search the things that are beyond thy strength.

It is easy when we are in prosperity to give advice to the afflicted.

Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; but remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.

Fate leads him who follows it, and drags him who resist.

The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled.

Only in quiet waters things mirror themselves undistorted. Only in a quiet mind is adequate perception of the world.

While we are examining into everything we sometimes find truth where we least expected it.

As iron is eaten away by rust, so the envious are consumed by their own passion.

Time is the most valuable thing a man can spend.

For hatred does not cease by hatred at any time: hatred ceases by love – this is an old rule!

True happiness dwells in your own souls.

He who strikes terror in others is himself continually in fear.

***  MAY AND JUNE  2012 ***

When all things fail and the storm is bearing down, anchor your soul only in one position and that is steadfastly upon Lord God Jehovah/Yahweh.

Glorify thy Lord God even in the midst of fires of tribulation, darkness and times of sorrow.

It takes courage and enormous strength to just ‘sit’ in troubled challenging trials and be ‘still’ in thy Lord God Jehovah/Yahweh; wait upon Him and see the wonders of His work of miracles.

The growth of spiritual self comes from the rubbing friction of afflictions in our lives.

The morning rainbow reaches the fountains; the evening rainbow fills the sails.

Be not only thankful for the roses that God gives but also for the thorns that pricks and teaches us.

Sometimes in phases of our lives, we see best when its the darkest.

Not a single blow can hit, till the God of Israel, the One True God of Love, Eternal and Awesome, sees fit.

A fruitful life seeks not only the sunshine but embraces the rains too.

Delayed answers to prayers are not refusals.

That which is written in Heaven, comes to pass on Earth.

Discipline only comes when its needed to restructure and refine our character and its from the loving guiding hands of Almighty God.

God comforts us not to make us comfortable but to make us as ‘comforters’.

In life, there are thorny sorrows as well as roses blooming with joy.

Our pleasures are shallow, our sorrows are deep.

With carefulness, you realize your opportunity.

The weakness of the enemy makes our strength.

Trials, tribulations and hardship are there in life to build a person’s character.

An understanding person only needs half a word.

You may regret your silence once, but you will regret your words often.

Beware of the man who does not talk, and the dog that does not bark.

Beauties of nature arrive after every torrential storm.

He who does not know the falcon would grill it.

Without suffering, there’s no learning.

Every person is observant to the flaws of others and blind to his own flaws.

Not every sweet root gives birth to sweet grass.

Learn when God puts us in those ‘hard places’.

Blessed is sorrow, for it reveals God’s comforts.

The rainbow is a sign from God who is in all things.

God does not write the music of our lives without a sure plan for us in mind.

On the day of victory, no one is tired.

If we wonder often, the gift of knowledge will come.

The coward shoots with shut eyes.

Speak of the dog and pick up the stick.

Journey on and you will find replacement to the ones left behind.

Do not judge your neighbor until you walk two moons in his moccasins.

Making bad choices today will create skeletons in your closet tomorrow.

Seek education and  gain knowledge from cradle to the grave.

Even the water gets stale if it does not flow.

Love and Trust walks side by side.

A man can only receive what Heaven has given him.

Discipline and Chastisement from God works in tandem with the sins we commit.

The way of God is complex and hard to comprehend in the simple mind of man; God moves the pieces and everything is streamed into order.

Be prepared when God  decides to shake the tall tree that you’ve nurtured with all your effort and time.

A heart filled with gratitude cannot be anything but humble.

A wise man makes his own decisions; an ignorant man follows the public opinion.

When you can think of yesterday without regret and tomorrow without fear, you are near contentment.

Strong Families: Strong Nation.

When troubles abound: Look Heavenward.

Exercise Daily in Almighty God Jehovah, do not slack and No Spiritual Flabbiness!

God’s Word is solid Rock; all other ground is sinking sand.

True humility comes from a place of strength and inner security.

Universal Law : You can’t do as little as possible and get as much as possible.

Gossip is an evil contagion which infects the mind and soul.

*** JULY AND AUGUST  2012 ***

In Adam’s fall, we sinned all!

I am never going to become so smart that I don’t need God!

Giving freely and happily not begrudgingly, knowing full well that there’s no gift in return is indeed a noble gift of self.

May my words be like fragrant aroma that will touch your soul.

Patience is the most beautiful prayer.

Never trust your tongue when your heart is bitter.

The best exercise for strengthening the heart is reaching down and lifting people up.

Never miss a conversation with Almighty One True God; and that is through heartfelt prayer.

A Life without Prayer is a Powerless Life.

The income of God’s Word is the outcome of a changed life.

You are either a Christian or you are not a Christian; you cannot be partly a Christian. You are either “dead” or “alive”; you are either “born” or “not born”.

We are temporary alien residents in this world; Be in it – Live in it but BE NOT of it.

Do not sin, for thy action of sinning pleases Satan but hated by Almighty God; Cease and don not give the Devil the satisfaction.

If we must judge, let us first use the mirror on our own wall for practice.

Opinions founded on prejudice are always sustained with the greatest violence.

Consider the consequences of sin rather than purring with pleasure that’s only momentary.

Slowly, Surely and Eventually; evil comes to be seen as good if you let it.

For every shade of sorrow, Almighty God sends special specific graces.

Not until we have become humble and teachable, standing in awe of Almighty Jehovah/Yahweh God’s holiness and sovereignty… acknowledging our own littleness, distrusting our own thoughts, and willing to have our minds turned upside down, can divine wisdom become ours.

Simple Faith, Simple Hope and Simple Trust equals Almighty God’s Love.

To see the right and not to do it is cowardice.

Why weep, O mortal man? Trust wholly in God because you can! He is thy Provider and Protector.

A weak person goes where he is smiled at.

Unless you have never been tempted, don’t pass judgement on someone who has yielded.

Great grief prays with great earnestness.

If your relationship with Almighty is not Right; nothing else is going to be right.

Self-control is the exercise of inner strength under the direction of sound judgment that enables us to do, think, and say the things that are pleasing to God.

Samson slew 1,000 Philistines with the jawbone of an ass. I have destroyed as many relationships with the same weapon.

The devil tempts all men, but idle men tempt the devil.

Every trial that comes, see it as coming from God and not the people involved – that way, you won’t get bitter but see it is all for a purpose.

Loose tongues are worse than wicked hands.

Cold words freeze people, and hot words scorch them, and bitter words make them bitter, and wrathful words make them wrathful. Kind words also produce their image on all souls; and a beautiful image it is. They smooth, and quiet, and comfort the hearer.

Unbelief is infectious! The unbelief of one strengthens the unbelief of another, just as the faith of one strengthens the faith of another.

One sin is too much, a hundred prayers are not enough.

Forgiveness is our command. Judgement is not.

No one was ever lost on a straight road.

To lengthen thy life, lessen thy meals.

When there are trials, consider it a blessing as it is a sure sign of love that Almighty God is pruning and shaping us.

My most valuable discovery was when I discovered myself a sinner and that Jesus Christ was my Savior.

Meekness is not weakness. Moses was leader in Israel because of his great meekness among a provoking people, a people with a temporary lapse of gratitude to the God who’d sent His servant Moses, who had led them out of captive.

The greatest Fear of every soul on earth is the ‘Unknown’.

If you start thinking of death, you are no longer sure of life.

When the devil is called the god of this world, it is not because he made it, but because we serve him with our worldliness.

Repentance for silence is better than repentance for speaking.

A Picture’s meaning can express Ten Thousand Words.

A man is not where he lives, but where he loves.

Without recognizing the ordinances of Heaven, it is impossible to be a superior man.

There are no shortcuts to suffering except through it with courage.

Slander cannot destroy an honest man: when the flood recedes the rock is there.

Shortsightedness in a certain situation or circumstance will short circuit process of change for the better – Seek God’s viewpoint.

God never dismisses or disregards or overlooks our unrighteousness, wicked and evil deeds; He’ll chastise us appropriately at the right time.

I am not concerned that I am not known, I seek to be worthy to be known.

Not everything can be seen, but everything exists.

*** SEPTEMBER & OCTOBER 2012 ***

Serve Almighty One True Eternal God Yahweh through His Son, Yeshua, in the sunshine as well as in the shadows of your lives.

A man who wanders from the way of understanding will rest in the congregation of the dead.

Only God’s rewards are eternal; earthly ones are like vapors.

Hold faithfulness and sincerity as first principles.

Self-righteousness and fear are two invincible slayers of men.

Tell me what you are conceited about, and I’ll tell you what you lack.

Do not be quick with your mouth, do not be hasty in your heart to utter anything before God.

Four horses cannot overtake the tongue.

To know and not do is not yet to know.

It is one thing to make another aware of the mistake that he has made; but quite another thing to help him correct it.

Adopt a humble and teachable attitude and one can reach the higher ground with God’s grace.

A good reputation is precious, but a good character is priceless.

He does not preach what he practices till he has practiced what he preaches.

We can only connect the dots of our lives when we are looking backwards.

Certain things may catch your eye but pursue those that catches your heart.

Don’t be too sweet, or else you will be eaten up; but don’t be too bitter, or else you will be spitted out.

Little children, little sorrows; big children, great sorrows.

Busy hands and minds will not let a heart grow heavy.

God will not look you over for medals, degrees or diplomas but for scars.

Give thanks for unknown blessings from God already on the way.

When under trials, consider it as a blessing from above as God has taken time to mold and shape us.

Life is the flower for which love is the honey.

You can’t see the whole sky through a bamboo tube.

Success comes in cans.  Failure comes in can’ts.

Real knowledge is to know the extent of one’s ignorance.

Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.

Death is the most surest thing expected by every soul.

Curses like chickens, come home to roost.

You can surrender without a prayer, but never, ever pray, pray without surrender.

A tree falls the way it leans.

Even the richest soil, if uncultivated, produces only weeds.

Unless and until he changes his ways, a lazy person will descend to being a servant to others, while a diligent person will grow, prosper, and control his own life.

At high tide, fish eat ants; at low tide, ants eat fish.

Conflicts and War arises from Misinterpretation, Miscommunication and Misunderstanding.

Fire in the heart sends smoke into the head.

Undeserved praise sometimes reacts as poison in disguise.

When we involve God in our everything; all things work in our favor.

Repentance is not just a jaunty turning to God and saying, “I’m sorry”; it has to come genuinely from the heart and change for the better.

The crooked wall will always hate the straight line; so goes the wicked hating the righteous ones who teaches.

Do NOT sit on proverbial fences; one heart pulled by the enticement of richness of the world and the other lukewarm worshiping of the One True Living God, thinking one has best of both worlds.

If words don’t impress; actions will.

The winds of heaven change suddenly; so do a man’s fortune.

Buying on credit rob next year’s crops.

He who plots to hurt others often hurts himself.

Speak the truth always, no matter what it costs and one does not need to juggle memory bank.

Satan promises the best, but pays with the worst;
he promises honor and pays with disgrace;
he promises pleasure and pays with pain;
he promises profit and pays with loss;
he promises life and pays with death.

*** NOVEMBER & DECEMBER 2012 ***

 

Have a Right Heart with the Right Spirit always.

If you live close to God and His infinite grace, You don’t have to tell; It shows on your face.

I am never going to be so smart that I don’t need God in my life.

Time does not heal all wounds; it’s our attitude towards the wound.

Words uttered in Forgiving and being Forgiven needs to be from the heart or else it’s just mere words.

Relying on God has to start all over everyday, as if nothing has yet been done.

In life, little things means a lot.

Remember, you may choose your sin, but you cannot chose the consequences.

A person with a weak conscience is a person who constantly indulges in sinful or questionable acts.

When Satan reminds us of our past, we should remind him of his future.

Language is the apparel in which your thoughts parade before the public.

For every sad moment in life; there needs to be a ‘check-up’ on the soul.

Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow; it only saps today of its strength.

Humility is quietness of the heart where Pride makes the heart enlarged.

In the end, a person is only known by the impact they have on others.

What the superior man seeks is in himself; what the small man seeks is in others.

A man of words and not of deeds is like a garden full of weeds.

A great man can bend and stretch.

Do not prove your own mightiness to men but rather sing about the greatness of the One True Almighty God to all nations.

Dignity does not consist in possessing honors, but in deserving them.

Diligent hand brings profit; Slack hand causes poverty.

God smiles down at one with praying hands.

Think not those faithful who praise all thy words and actions; but those who kindly reprove thy faults.

Have a ‘Give’ and not a ‘Get’ Attitude.

In life, there are times to ‘be still’ but always strive to be faithful and true.

“Thank You” and a “I’m Sorry” : Two simple words from the heart that lights and mends.

Inculcate and Ingrain in your children on building character rather than accumulating wealth.

Pursue a lifelong development of a noble character.

Thank God instead of asking God for everything.

He who gathers in summer is a wise son: but he who sleeps in harvest is a son that causes shame.

The mind of man should be as a mirror.

Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around the laws.

Seek God’s will in all matters and right decisions will present itself.

Do not always seek the approval of others lest you’ll be their prisoner.

From toddler phase and throughout youth; parents need to ingrain in them to never violate ‘Trust’.

Control your emotions or it will rule you and lead you to ruin.

When you judge others; you do not define them but rather defining yourself.

Do not say a little in many words but a great deal in a few.

Treat your words as mighty instruments : to heal, to bring into being, to nurture, to cherish, to bless, to teach, to forgive and to love.

All the gold which is under or upon the earth is not enough to give in exchange for virtue.

Only crystal-clear questions yields transparent answers.

He who would enter into the realm of Wisdom must first divest himself of all intellectual pride. Prejudices, pre-conceived opinions and beliefs always stand in the way of true wisdom. Conceited opinions are always suicidal in their influences. They bar the door to the entrance of Truth.
