simple force that causes great change!

have you ever considered the power of words, a thought came to me that words are just an expression of present,non verbal actions that the rest of your body relays, never underestimate the power of
thank you,
i love you,
you are appreciated,
you are special,
you mean a lot to me,
you are beautiful/ handsome,
I'm proud of you,
this list of but a few of the good things one can say to another can make the difference between outpouring of wrath and turning away of anger (prov 15:1). but as we talk about the positivity of words we must not igore the negativity of words. two kinds of negative words i've come across:
Empty words:
this kind of words i think cause the most damage, i call them misleading because they have the power to create a false sense of exactly what the other person is looking or hoping for. i liken them to throwing a life line to a sinking person then as they pull and reach the edge of the boat cutting it and letting them drown anyway, this words affect the way a person things and their end result is usually
frustration to name but a few. KEEP OFF THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hurtful/Insensitive/Uncaring words:
this words leave scars, a story is told of a young boy who loved to use hurtful words and to show him the impact the father got him to nail poles along their fence then after sometime pull the nails out. the holes where the nails were remained,
i hope we all learn to watch our words because the words you pick will greatly affect your life relations with others,for out of the fullness of your heart does your mouth speak, what are you full of?

Just let go!

it is funny how we hold onto things that hurt us,
how we try in our own strength to fightt for what we believe in
purposefully we are all created for one purpose and only one purpose,
a singer once wrote and said there is a God shaped hole inside of each and every one of us,
think about it in Ecclesiastes Solomon writes in great disappointment about some journey's in life,
Vanity of Vanities,
at times life seems like a chase for the wind,
guess what it's because we have been chasing after  our own things,
James puts it in this manner,
"you ask and receive not because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures"
it is often so easy to ask of what you want but the hardest thing yet is to ask what someone else wants for you.
Christ was the perfect example in this he really did not want to die but dd it anyway because God wanted him too,
how many times do we hang onto
      a job,
      a friend,
      company of people,
      an ideal,
that we think will benefit us.
letting go is more beneficial than holding on,
knowing this that all things work together for good to them that love God, and are called according to his purpose.
what is it you've been so afraid to loose but your holding onto to it just seems to destroy you,
choose to let go today.
breathe,smell the coffee, embrace the sunshine, live life!
i have come that you might have life and have it more abundantly says the Lord,
all you have to do is get to the point you can say "into your hands i commit myself"
take a breath of relief and REST!
JUST LET GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
no fear, no regret.

Even when i cant feel you, i will know you are here,
and when i can't see you my faith will cause me to pursue you,
because i understand that after dusk cometh dawn,
and though right now all i hear are echoes of me crying out to you,
i will hold on, knowing that somewhere you hear,
i will search my heart to find you,
i will wait for the silent wind of your still small voice,
and find comfort in the shadow of your wings,
i will keep on going,
untill i finally feel you close to me again.

Crisis of lust

why are you with the person you are today? be it friend or family or love, do you do things for them with an expectation in return. human beings will never return to the level of your expectation. sadly they will most of the times fall short of what you expect them to do. lust is that i want and want now kind of feeling. it is that deep intense desire for something in the human soul or spirit. unfortunately it is the number one destroyer of all things good, because once it is fulfilled it seeks to dispose of the very thing or person that gave the fulfillment. ask yourself if everyone around you stopped doing what they do would you still regard them or will you drop them like a hot potato and say it was good while it lasted. lust creates crisis and creates the worst feeling ever; DISGUST for what was once esteemed, lets choose to be driven by what we can give rather than what we can receive.STOP THE CRISIS BE A GIVER!

not too much because i love you

Loosing ourselves for the one's we love:
 love makes you do things that look stupid in the eyes of others for those who you love,
Samson gave up the identity of his strength just to prove to Delilah that he loved her,
King Xerxes was ready to give Esther up to half of his kingdom because he loved her,
Jacob worked an extra seven years for Rachel although he had Leah,
Moses mother worked as a nanny to her own son to protect him,
Boaz fulfilled the requirements to marry Ruth,
God gave up his only son to die for a human race that cared less about Him just because he loved us,
love comes with action.
are you afraid to look stupid in the eyes of others for the one's you say you love, then you got miles to go. the greatest beauty of love is loosing yourself so that the other may gain.
How much you are willing to loose is equivalent to how much you love.

To the single ladies

it is amazing how at the point of brokenness in ones heart that all this emotions develop within and you don't really know where to channel all the things you are going through. It is amazing how much the enemy can drain your life with the not so important but touchy subjects in our life. Mine is an encouragement to all single ladies out there, those who are waiting and those who've had their hearts broken, to keep hoping in Christ, you are way too precious to settle for what you are not worth. Christ loves you and you need to seek his approval only. Do not lower your standard to meet the need of any man, because you are better than that. you are a jewel, most precious in the eyes of God. soon he will find you,you just have to believe in the God of promise.
