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


2014   *JANUARY   FEBRUARY   MARCH*

Nothing can separate you from God’s love, absolutely nothing. God is enough for time, God is enough for eternity. God is enough!

God does not require a man to have one talent, three talents, or five talents. He only requires that a man be faithful with whatever he has been given.

Let your words be the genuine picture of your heart.

Sin is the missing of a target, a wandering from the path, a straying from the fold. Sin is a hard heart and stiff neck. Sin is blindness and deafness. It is both the overstepping of a line and the failure to reach it – both transgression and shortcoming. Sin is a beast crouching at the door. In sin, people attack or evade or neglect their divine calling. These and other images suggest deviance; even when it is familiar, sin is never normal…Above all, sin disrupts and resists the vital human relation to God.

Repentance leads to restoration.

When you drink from the stream, remember it’s source.

Do not covet prosperity above holiness.

Thank God for sleep! And when you cannot sleep, still thank Him that you live to lie awake.

Self-discipline is one of the most vital aspects of good character.

Virtues of Obedience is a trait for strong growth of character.

If your life is good and fruitful; don’t be presumptuous and arrogant that it’s your doing but it is the One True Almighty God Yahweh-Jehovah, who sits in the Heavens above that sets the providence for you.

Walk towards the narrow road to Eternal Life in the belief of the One True God, Yahweh-Jehovah and His Son, Yeshua-Jesus and not tread the broad road of this temporary world of Satan which leads to destruction.

Trust and still Trust in God though your fortune fly and life is unspeakably very hard; have Faith without doubt and He’ll restore in His time and in His way.

Are you weak? Weary? Confused? Troubled? Pressured? How is your relationship with God? Is it held in its place of priority? I believe the greater the pressure, the greater your need for time alone with Him.

Do not forsake God and Christ for the world, is to leave a treasure for a trifle….eternity for a moment, reality for a shadow.

When the harshness of the desert should visit you in your phases of life, look to and lean upon Almighty God Yahweh-Jehovah for only He can bring forth water from the desert.

When life knocks you to your knees, and it will, why, get up! If it knocks you to your knees again, as it will, well, isn’t that the best position from which to pray?

Prayer is not so much an act as it is an attitude – an attitude of dependency, dependency upon God.

Do not conquer life using thy wisdom but rely full strength on God’s wisdom.

Buried under the biggest burden is a good place to find an even bigger blessing.

If you’re on the rocks, don’t despair; be a lighthouse.

The high-minded man must care more for the truth than for what people think.

Success in life is not the greatness nor works of a man; it’s his character.

Dislodge your spirit of jealousy and self-entitlement traits as it will be your downfall if left unchecked.

If you get busy serving God, you’re too busy to sin.

Evil hides and camouflages in us in ways we overlooked in ourselves if we are detached or have abandon God.

Do not compromise; for God do not take too kindly on souls who intentionally stray off in worshiping and reverencing Him.

Do not yield to evil even though it’s in our very soul; at all cost, use the Sword of Truth which is God’s Words to fight it.

Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.

Too much sunshine in life makes a desert.

Real trust and full abandonment in God only develops in the darkness of our lives.

Give me a stout heart to bear my own burdens. Give me a willing heart to bear the burdens of others. Give me a believing heart to cast all burdens upon Thee, O Lord.

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

God has a peculiar passion for the forgotten.

Do what you can, being what you are. Shine as glow-worm if you cannot be a star. Work like a pulley if you cannot be crane; be a wheel grinder if you cannot drive a train. Be the pliant oar if you cannot be the sailor; be the needle if you cannot be a tailor… Be the sharpened sickle if you cannot be the reaper.

A quick-tempered man does foolish things, and a crafty man is hated.

Do not desire an idolatrous life of success and great living above having a relationship with Almighty God.

The Bible teaches that all sin begins with sinful thinking.

Haughty eyes and a proud heart, the lamp of the wicked, are sin!

No one “gets away” with evil. Judgement always comes, only the timing is uncertain.

When you are arrogant and self-centered, it’s the Devil’s joy because he can easily manipulate you!

No one can survive scheming and slandering without having to pay a very high price for it.

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

Lie not, neither to thyself, nor man, nor God. It is for cowards to lie.

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

Even silence speaks.

He who listens to a life-giving rebuke will be at home among the wise.The fear of the LORD teaches a man wisdom, and humility comes before honor.

Never cease loving a person, and never give up hope for him, for even the prodigal son who had fallen most low, could still be saved; the bitterest enemy and also he who was your friend could again be your friend; love that has grown cold can kindle again.

An elder was asked by a certain soldier if God would forgive a sinner. And he said to him: “Tell me, beloved, if your cloak is torn, will you throw it away?” The soldier replied: “No. I will mend it and put it back on.” The elder said to him: “If you take care of your cloak, will God not be merciful to His own image?”

To call yourself a child of God is one thing. To be called a child of God by those who watch your life is another thing altogether.

Death is the sinner’s penalty but the saint ‘s promotion.

2014   *OCTOBER   NOVEMBER   DECEMBER*

God is with you when you are with Him!

When you are well, you think you are in charge of your life BUT when you are not well, rest in the thought that GOD is indeed in charge of your mortal life.

When one is met with ‘DIVINE’ favor from GOD; do not misuse nor prostitute it for own selfish ends.

The Bible recognizes no faith that does not lead to obedience, nor does it recognize any obedience that does not spring from faith. The two are opposite sides of the same coin.

Always remember that Christ died and atoned for our sins, DO NOT grieved God’s with our stony hearts by sinning again and again; this indeed proved our unworthiness in accepting God’s love for us in Him giving us Christ, His Beloved Son.

Sin tramples on God’s laws, sin slights His love, it grieves His spirit, spurns His blessedness, sin affects us drastically. It makes us naked. It makes us impure. It robs our robe and our crown.

The mills of God grind slowly but they grind finely.

Fools that laugh when there’s no cause for laughter, no place for laughter, no reason for it. They should be in deep sorrow.
