Heaven means to be one with God.
Truth needs no ally.
His heart cannot be pure whose tongue is not clean.
Labor to get the fear of God into your hearts and seek delight in the Word of God.
Confidence is Silent. Insecurities are Loud.
Infidelity is one of the most challenging, and damaging emotional events in life. It’s Emotional Murder!
Pick up a sesame seed but lose sight of a watermelon.
It is as easy to deceive one’s self without perceiving it, as it is difficult to deceive others without their finding out.
Age and time do not wait for people.
When the tide of misfortune moves over you, even jelly will break your teeth.
Worry not that no one knows of you; seek to be worth knowing.
When all expectorate with the same spittle, all have formed or obtained opinions from the same source.
Curb the Tongue; Guide the Foot; Use the Hand, according to God’s Holy Will .. because the words you utter, the paths you go, the deeds you perform, tell mightily on yourself and on others.
A young tree bends, an old tree breaks.
Liars begin by imposing upon others, but end by deceiving themselves.
Falsehood is common, truth uncommon.
The real fault is to have faults and not amend them.
Infidelity is a violation of the rules of a relationship.
Sow a thought—and you will reap an act;
Sow an act—and you will reap a habit;
Sow a habit—and you will reap a character;
Sow character—and you will reap a destiny!
The adulterer does all he can, to destroy the soul of another—and so kills two at once!
Immorality in a home is like a worm in fruit.
If you would have the nuptial union last, let virtue be the bond that ties it fast.
Guard your heart with all diligence as every person has a tempter in his own bosom.
The drowning man is not troubled by rain.
Laws control the lesser man. Right conduct controls the greater one.
He who has not a good memory should never take upon him the trade of lying.
Credit won by lying is quick in dying.
Time reveals a person’s character.
One should examine oneself for a very long time before thinking of condemning others.
The punishment of a liar is that, even when he speaks the truth, none believe him.
Little sins are sure to grow! The trickling leak in the dike — becomes a torrent deluging vast plains!
A sin that is confessed is less heavy to bear.
Adversities we face is the teacher on our life path.
A fall into a ditch makes you wiser.
The load on the camel shows off his mightiness, so greater responsibilities are shouldered by a ‘greater’ man.
Whoever is trying to bring you down is already below you.
Infidelity raises profound questions about intimacy.
Before a thief steals, he has learned to lie.
Neither fortunes nor flowers last forever.
One pound of learning requires ten pounds of common sense to apply it.
First learn, then form opinions.
When we take one step toward to God, he takes seven steps toward us.
Risk more than others think is safe.
Care more than others think is wise.
Dream more than others think is practical.
Expect more than others think is possible.
The heart and the eye are the two agents of sin!!
The eye gazes — the ear hearkens — the foot tarries — the heart desires — the hand takes — MAN falls!
If you don’t want people to find out, don’t do it!
Touch black paint, have black fingers.
Dally with ‘little sins’, and it’ll surely end in shameful degradation; so guard against carelessness concerning ‘little sins’ and temptations. The little beginnings of sins can grow into appalling consequences that leads to moral and spiritual ruin. So, when one plays with fire, do not wonder why one is burned!
What is the mind comes out as words or actions; so goes the saying “garbage in-garbage out” or “holiness in-holiness out”.
Cast no mud into the well from which thou hast drunk.
Do Not violate your conscience and Do Not violate God by trusting in your own wisdom.
There is no heart so stubborn that it cannot become breakable in the hands of the Lord. He can change any heart—any heart! Any Hard Heart that is not obedient to Him!
When you are happy, you enjoy the music. But when you are sad, you understand the lyrics.

The greatest wealth is to live content with little.
One is really rich who appreciates what he has.
A bad word whispered will echo a hundred miles.
Vows made in storms are forgotten in calms.
Do not do to others what angers you if done to you by others.
Faults are thick where love is thin.
Repentance and good deeds are a man’s best lawyer.
An outward show of virtue when the character is obviously vicious is worse than being a thoroughly corrupt person. A man needs to make his interior harmonize with his exterior.
Self-righteous people tend to justify themselves by blaming others and putting others down to elevate themselves. Self-righteousness is a very difficult sin to get people to see and condemn in themselves.
A good act or an act which is a preventive against wrong-doing or sinning is an “Arrow” in Satan’s eye.
2016 JULY AUGUST SEPTEMBER
Dear Father in Heaven, may humans have the Vision to See, the Faith to accept the Truth, the Courage to Stand by that which they Know is Right.
There is no emptiness of soul ever for those whose life is devoted to God.
Let your prayers be frequent and fervent.
As men age, their opinions change.
Heaven send us misfortunes as a moral tonic.
Wine in, secret out!
One eye witness is better than ten hear sayers.
The written word can be erased — not so with the spoken word. So, think before you speak.
If you want to give God a good laugh, tell Him your plans.
Forgiveness is man’s deepest need and highest achievement.
Don’t anger your parents in order to please other people. Those other people did not spend their lives building yours.
A wise man hears one word and understands two.
Each man is the smith of his own fortune.
He who seldom speaks, and with one calm well-timed word can strike dumb the loquacious, is a genius or a hero.
Liars when they speak the truth are not believed.
There is no finer heritage than morality.
Don’t make light of little sins, as many think them. Little acts . . .
of indulged vanity,
of pride and self-conceit,
of the love of dress,
of petty deceits and half-untruths —
who can tell how much harm is often done by these things, and to what far greater evils they often lead?
A weak person goes where he is smiled at.
Who respects the elderly is as if he respects the Lord.
Cursed be he whose wife is faithful and himself is not!
Immorality in a home is like a worm in fruit.
Short is the joy that guilty pleasure brings.
God, the Best maker of all marriages, Combine your hearts into One.
A good marriage is like a casserole, only those responsible for it really know what goes in it.
The short bloom of our brief and narrow life flies far away. While we are calling for flowers and wine and woman, old age is upon us.
Do not magnify the trials or afflictions of life.
Education without Salvation is Damnation!
Good manners mean more than learning.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity
In reality . . . riches are but dust, honors are but shadows, pleasures are but bubbles, and man is but a lump of vanity, composed of sin and misery.
The world’s pleasures are often curses in disguise like poison in the wine-cup or an adder lurking in the bed of roses.
True beauty is not of the face — but of the soul!
Be humble. Pride only breeds quarrels.
Be careful to guard against all occasions of sin and evil. There is no safety without setting a watch against all that is likely to prove a stumbling-block.
The moon, when she shines brightest—has its spots; and the fire, when it burns the hottest—has its smoke.
In the smoothest paths—we quickly stumble!
A wise man doesn’t need advice, and a fool won’t take it.
Conformity to the world when the world is wrong is like quick-sand to destruction.
We survive on adversity and perish in ease and comfort.
Pleasure may come from illusion, but happiness can come only of reality.
Life is but a journey — a journey from the present fleeting world, to the eternal world.
Guard well the eye. Keep it from vanity. Remember that one look cost Achan his life — and a lustful look embittered the whole of David’s years. Let the eye look straight onward, and right upward to the throne.
The words you utter, the paths you go, the deeds you perform, tell mightily on yourself and on others.
If you reveal your secrets to the wind, you should not blame the wind for revealing them to the trees.
Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.
If God left us, What would become of us? We would fall at once into the hands . . . of sin, of Satan, and of the world.
Reject worldly things that are rooted in idolatry.
We choose our joys and sorrows long before we experience them.
Everything flows and nothing stays.
Prayer beats the weapon out of the devil’s hand — and gets the blessing out of God’s hand!
There is a natural laughter, which is innocent and harmless. There is a spiritual laughter, which is God-pleasing and beneficial. There is a carnal laughter, which is sinful and injurious.
What is popular is not always right and what is right is not always popular. We can’t follow the masses if the masses are wrong.
There is no greater delight than to be conscious of sincerity on self-examination.
Man is born with his hands clenched; he dies with them wide open. Entering life, he desires to grasp everything; leaving the world, all he possessed has slipped away.
Though bitter, good medicine cures illness. Though it may hurt, loyal criticism will have beneficial effects.
Temper is so good a thing that we should never lose it.
If you leave someone for another person, don’t be surprised if that person leaves you for someone else.
The difficulty with marriage is that we fall in love with a personality, but must live with a character.
An evil wish is most evil to the wisher.
Afflicted by love’s madness all are blind.
Temptations are bombarded at us at all times, we can decide whether to succumb or to avoid and how we choose as well as why, is all that really matters.
2016 APRIL MAY JUNE
God delays but doesn’t forget.
Jesus’ command of Loving One Another is that Love would replace law-keeping, Self-Sacrifice would replace animal sacrifice and the Vertical of Worship would be measured by the Horizontal.
Remember — God’s Hand will not be forced by mortal man nor can God’s Will be thwarted by puny and sinful man.
Do not trade your personal relationship and intimacy with Almighty God Jehovah and His Son, Yeshua/Jesus for worldly possessions and neither keep seeking to satisfy the temporal desires for anticipated relationships other than your own gifted earthly family.
The heart that truly loves never forgets.
A good wife and health is a man’s best wealth.
Certain things catch your eye, but pursue only those that capture your heart.
Marriage is thus more than the union of two individuals. It is the reunion of a halved soul, the fusion of two lives originally and intrinsically one.
Love is like a puzzle. When you’re in love, all the pieces fit but when your heart gets broken, it takes a while to get everything back together.
Follow love and it will flee, flee love and it will follow.
No man is free who cannot control himself.
A man’s character is his fate.
Sin has many tools, but a lie is the handle which fits them all.
The greatest enemy to human souls is the self-righteous spirit which makes men look to themselves for salvation.
He who chooses the beginning of the road chooses the place it leads to. It is the means that determines the end.
Character is like the foundation of a house — it is below the surface and inside of us — our hearts.
It does not require many words to speak the truth.
Integrity keeps our heart and actions straight without stain.
The tongue can paint what the eye can’t see.
Self-justification is a cold, hard relationship killer. It severs Trust and Faithfulness between two persons.
Think not those faithful who praise all thy words and actions; but those who kindly reprove thy faults.
All the gold which is under or upon the earth is not enough to give in exchange for virtue.
The measure of a man’s real character is what he would do if he knew he never would be found out.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
A guilty conscience needs no accuser.
You may tell the greatest lies and wear a brilliant disguise, but you can’t escape the eyes of the one who sees right through you.
An Indirect Lie is a Lie of Omission.
Sidelined means not in favor, not worthy and only wanted when needed.
No one is as angry as the person who is wrong.
Our prayers should be for blessings in general, for God knows best what is good for us.
If a man takes no thought about what is distant, he will find sorrow near at hand.
Do NOT think to barter with Almighty God Jehovah or His Son, Yeshua/Jesus and maintain the attitude of defiance in surrendering; we alone, are responsible for our own outcome or consequences.
When you betray somebody else, you also betray yourself.
Never forget that a half truth is a whole lie.
The cruelest lies are often told in silence.
Resentment that one feels inside, is like that of a person who keeps shoveling dirt over a big volcano hole.
Temptation is the fire that brings up the scum of the heart.
All men make mistakes, but only wise men learn from their mistakes.
Forgiveness is the Oil in all relationships.
Words are seeds, it’s either good sowing wholesomeness, or bad producing rottenness.
One can not reflect in streaming water. Only those who know internal peace can give it to others.
It’s not hard to make decisions when you know what your values are.
A man generally has two reasons for doing a thing. One that sounds good, and a real one.
He who commits injustice is ever made more wretched than he who suffers it.
A hero is born among a hundred, a wise man is found among a thousand, but an accomplished one might not be found even among a hundred thousand men.
Man has always sacrificed truth to his vanity, comfort and advantage. He lives… by make-believe!
I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is over self.
Things that are done, it is needless to speak about… things that are past, it is needless to blame.
Do nothing evil, neither in the presence of other, nor privately.
One falsehood spoils a thousand truths.
Good decisions come from experience, and experience comes from bad decisions.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Pride is the mask of one’s own faults.
Eggs have no business dancing with stones.
Forgiveness is Costly but is Free.
A happy marriage is the union of two good forgivers.
Everyone must choose one of two pains: The pain of discipline or the pain of regret.
There is no greater delight than to be conscious of sincerity on self-examination.
It isn’t a matter of forgetting. What one has to learn is how to remember and yet be free of the past.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
You can’t force anyone to love you or lend you money.
Four things come not back. The spoken word, the sped arrow, the past life, ad the neglected opportunity.
The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.
Character, more than anything else, will impact how much you accomplish in this life. It determines everything about you. It is more important than your talent, your education, your background, or your network of friends.
O, what a tangled web we weave; When first we practice to deceive!
There are no atheists in a foxhole.
Six feet of earth make all men equal.
2016 JANUARY FEBRUARY MARCH
When God Speaks; we better make a conscious effort to Listen.
Questions to God are from your heart and not your mind.
When Almighty God Yahweh/Jehovah spoke at Mount Sinai, the First Commandment He commanded was to Worship and Believe in Him ONLY and no other gods shall you serve.
When God is with someone; one should be careful NOT to be on the opposing side of this person.
The world that is too much for us crowds out Almighty God. How much time is there for God in our lives – ponder and reflect truthfully from the heart; is God ever at all in all of our thoughts?
Do not blow up minor annoyances and make it a mountain of fixation. It’ll do no well!
When one is so focused on oneself; do not be surprised that Almighty God will do something to get one’s attention back to Him.
How strong is your Faith when life throws you an inferno of fire?
Stand Up and Stand By your convictions and your faith in God Almighty; do not compromise.
When one is wealthy, one assumes one is righteous above all with a loud voice.
If you search for God with all your heart and soul; He’ll be found by you.
There are blessings which we cannot obtain if we cannot accept and endure suffering.
Where God’s finger points, there God’s hand will make the way.
When you’ve found God, you’ve found Peace.
God cannot be limited according to your limited Faith in Him.
You cannot be wanting God on your own terms but rather seek Him on His terms for He made you and not you yourself.
Do not listen to the Devil’s lie by believing that you are complete in yourself.
Your greatest gift to God is your heart and God’s greatest gift to you is Our Messiah, Jesus Christ.
When Yeshua/Jesus was crucified, Almighty God Yahweh/Jehovah cried; the heavens rend and the earth shook!
Deal with that cutting sharp tongue before it cripples your life with devastating consequences.
Let your soul be open to quest hungrily for God’s awesomeness and goodness for your days will be blessed by that thirst.
Be careful to love your God Almighty and be in Praising of Him; make seeking and loving Him your utmost priority!
Do not let a weak moment trigger a wrong choice that will wreck your entire life, like Esau who in one swift decision discarded his birthright for instant gratification of his hunger; so do not crave after things that gives you satisfaction of fleshly desires in the moment.
Those who don’t believe in God blame God for all the negative stuff that happens in their life and never reflect and be thankful upon the blessings that God bestows daily.
Almighty God Jehovah/Yahweh had already demonstrated His sure sign of eternal love for you by sending His Son, Yeshua, Our Messiah, to be our Atoner for our sins and God keeps beckoning you to return to Him; so do not let your crazy stubbornness of not seeking and surrendering to God drive you to ruins of hell and lest if your time on earth is up, tears of bitter regret won’t account for it.
Sin — We think we can shade it from ourselves and people but we can’t get away with it with God. He sees it right through us as He’s All-Knowing!
If you sow profanity, you’ll reap profanity; basically one of the ungodliness of life.
Sweep off all the clutter of uncleanliness in our minds and heart, seek to have a clean house for God to live in us, one that is of faith and purity.
You are going to be judged according to what you do, not according to what another person does. So, what load are you carrying around? Are you carrying the light of Jesus Christ around? Or are you dragging around the Satanic, worldly, abominable burden of the evilness.
In life, should you faint with trials and tribulations, remember that Almighty God is your under-girding wind beneath your frail wings.
One has to tune in one’s inner compass and in stillness to listen to God’s nudges, promptings, impulses, signals or signs and accept it as divine messages of The Navigator’s guidance.
Trust Almighty God Yahweh/Jehovah in Yeshua/Jesus to provide for the unknown, the unexpected, the unpredictable and also the unwelcome news.
The devil has two master tricks. One is to get us discouraged; then for a time till we can be of no service to others, and so are defeated. The other is to make us doubt, thus breaking the faith link by which we are bound to our Father in heaven. Look Out! Do not be deceived either way.
In the journey of life, sisters are the escalators that make the climb easier.
Do not let your own loud voice overpower your own discerning inner voice.
Replace the disorder of tardiness with the order of timeliness.
No time is more valuable and precious than time spent with Almighty Jehovah God and His Son, Yeshua.
Life has a way of humbling us so that we don’t have any chances of arrogance and prideful self meandering its way back. It’s sneaking re-route will be very detrimental to our soul and spirit, so be well aware and discerning.
Do not let the Devil conditioned us to the cyclical disappointments in our lives; it’s his trickery for us to doubt Almighty God Yahweh/Jehovah.
