Great Souls Experience Great Sorrows


Material stuff and trinkets are easily earned, but usually the most
valuable and most precious things carry a heavy price and often
times with harsh, grueling and toilsome labor.  Sometimes lofty
heights of power and awesome wealth are always bought with
blood, if there is enough of blood to be spilled.
To attain the greatest value and character in life, it needs our
acceptance of flexibility to adapt to ever changing winds of trials
and tribulations for they are not thrown at us randomly;  it’s
brought upon to chisel us to be precious gems in order to meet
with our Almighty God’s standards as wholesome loving
respectful human beings.
We are brought upon our knees under circumstances of intense
fire of trials and afflictions so that we may exercise our utmost
faith and trust in Almighty God Yahweh (JEHOVAH) and forever
be thankful in Yeshua (Jesus) as our Savior, the Atoner for our
sins and the intercessor between God and men.
So, do not despair in times of troubled storms for when God brings
us that deluge of tempest, He is using time which He is in control,
to deal with us with patience so that we will learn to lean our all,
heavily upon Him.
 
Character in Life
 
 
Great truths are dearly bought, the common truths,
Such as we give and take from day to day,

Come in the common walk of easy life,
Blown by the careless wind across our way.

Great truths are greatly won, not found by chance,
Nor wafter on the breath of summer dream;

But grasped in the great struggle of our soul,
Hard buffeting with adverse wind and stream.

But in the day of conflict, fear and grief,
When the strong hand of God, put forth in might,
Plows up the subsoil of our stagnant heart,
And brings the imprisoned truth seed to the light.

Wrung from the troubled spirit, in hard hours
Of weakness, solitude and times of pain,

Truth springs like harvest from the well-plowed field,
And our soul feels it has not wept in vain.


“If one is patient in a moment of anger,

one would escape a hundred days of sorrow.”


“Anger of the mind is poison to the soul.”


“When a man is wrong and won’t admit it,
he always gets angry.”


There are severe consequences and ramifications if we let our self-control

run rampant; so we need to learn how to control the emotions of the flesh,

the weakness in every soul. Anger is detrimental to our emotional and

spiritual well-being and do remember that anger is a friendly “sister”

trait to the Devil.  If we let anger simmer inside of us every time that

we’re being provoked, intimidated, wrongly rebuked or accused or

even rightly reprimanded due to our own faults; and stop to think

rationally for a moment before we fly off the handle to fight back for

the sake of  perceived rightful justification, we are bound to overstep

into boundaries of no return and be on the precipice of doing something

that we’ll regret for a lifetime. So, cut off the wrong and bad attitudes

of pride, anger and rebellion and not let it take root for the Devil is

always waiting on the sidelines for opportunities and moves in

for the kill to plot our downfall and thus when we are so dispirited

with our failures in life, we’ll start to lose our faith in God.

Anger nullifies all the humility and love that personifies us as a loving

child of God.


“When you are caught in the heavy rains of anger,
open the umbrella of mind, take refuge under the
roof of reason!”


Do not turn into “HULK” all the time,
it doesn’t pay …in the end.


The price is too high for our loss of self-control; whatever situation we

find ourselves in, from bad habits to anger to lust to envy to fear and not

forgetting arrogance and pride, we should have a gauge to measure our

self-control always and it’s got to be kept at bay and checked because our

Almighty True God JEHOVAH in the heavens above is never pleased

with that and we’ll definitely be admonished and pruned in a manner

worthy in God’s eyes.

*** The Battle Within ***

Two Wolves


An old Cherokee describes an experience going on inside himself….

“It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.


One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity,
guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

menacing-and-evil-wolf

evil and menacing


The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness,
benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.

gentle-and-good-wolf

good and gentle

This same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather:
“Which wolf will win?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

TEN BIBLICAL RULES FOR A HAPPY MARRIAGE  

Never bring up mistakes of the past. Stop criticizing others or it will come back on you. If you forgive others, you will be forgiven.

(Luke 6:37)

Neglect the whole world rather than each other. And how do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul in the process?

(Mark 8:36)

Never go to sleep with an argument unsettled. And don’t sin by letting anger gain control over you. Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry.

(Ephesians 4:26)

At least once a day, try to say something complimentary to your spouse. Gentle words bring life and health; a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.

(Proverbs 15:4)

Never meet without an affectionate welcome. Kiss me again and  again, your love is sweeter than wine.

(Song of Solomon 1:2)

For richer or poorer” – rejoice in every moment that God has given you together. A bowl of soup with someone you love is better than steak with someone you hate.

(Proverbs 15:17)

If you have a choice between making yourself or your mate look good, choose your mate. Do not withhold good from those who deserve it when it’s in your power to help them.

(Proverbs 3:27)

If they’re breathing, your mate will eventually offend you. Learn to forgive. I am warning you, if another believer sins, rebuke him; then if he repents, forgive him. Even if he wrongs you seven times a day and each time turns again and asks forgiveness, forgive him.

(Luke 17:3,4)

Don’t use faith, the Bible, or God as a hammer. God did not send His Son into the world to condemn it, but to save it.

(John 3:17)

Let love be your guidepost. Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged.

(1 Corinthians 13:4,5)

The Hand that Rocks the Cradle Rules the World

by David Brandt Berg

 
 

What an important job a mother has!

The mothers of the next generation are the ones who are molding the future.

Motherhood is just about the greatest calling in the world.

Of course, taking care of a baby may not always seem very important,

but don’t ever minimize it.

β

Who knows what an impact that child may have on the lives of many others one day?

Motherhood takes

the strength of Samson,

the wisdom of Solomon,

the patience of Job,

the faith of Abraham,

the insight of Daniel,

and the courage and administrative ability of David.

It also takes the love of God,

that’s for sure!

What a job!

The thing that makes a mother so wonderful is her

self-sacrificial spirit that is willing to sacrifice

her time and strength and even her own health,

if necessary, for the sake of that child.

Any woman can have a baby,

but it takes a real mother to learn how to

train up a child in the way he should go”

(Proverbs 22:6)
