If Your Bible was Your Cellphone

Hello Peeps!

Image result for cellphone bibleHappy Friday! Today, I have a short video sent to me by my Dad via WhatsApp and it’s a short clip about what it would be like if our Bibles were our Cellphone. Some people claim that they can’t live without their phones….but how many of us know that we really can’t live without our Bibles? The Word of God is living and powerful to all of those perishing in ignorance, and we need to hold on to the Truth and be the Light of God’s Word wherever we Go. Our cellphones are helpful when we need to navigate, call some one, etc etc… but eventually, we need to recharge them in order to keep them useful. How many of us know that Our Bible doesn’t need to be recharged to be useful? We just need to read it, meditate on it day and night and apply it in our lives in order for it to remain useful. The question is, how many of us use it daily, hmmm? Think about that today as you watch this short clip. I pray that it blesses your spirit today! God Bless You Everybody! 😀

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

I’m A Believer!

Hello Peeps!

I just had to post this upbeat song by Junior B, Monty G, TJ Cross & Jizlo called I’m A Believer. This song is my current jam lol 😀 . How many of us know that Jesus has given has the victory over death, infirmities, sin? He came so that we all could live a life with abundance rather than live in a place filled with uncertainty, doubt, obscurity and lack of vision. In Christ is where my hope is found so just remember why you became a Believer in the first place by first acknowledging what it is Our Savior did for us at Calvary. I pray that this song ministers to you today. God Bless You Everybody! 😀

John 19:29-30 (NKJV)

29 Now a vessel full of sour wine was sitting there; and they filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop, and put it to His mouth. 30 So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.

All I Have – NF’s Story in Lyrics

Hello Peeps!

Today, I just had to post this song by NF (also known as Nathan John Feuerstein) called All I Have, but before I do, I feel like I should first post a short video concerning his story for you to fully appreciate the song I’ve posted here today by him.

2 Corinthians 5:17 [Full Chapter]

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

I feel like each time I listen to this track, it’s on repeat mode for me because of the sound of the beat and the message in his lyrics. It’s not your typical Christian song… but what I love about NF‘s song is how real he is about how people have kind of put him in a box based on the genre of music he uses to spread the message of Christ to people willing to hear his music. He sings in such a way that he expresses himself unashamed as he addresses real life and how people can be in life when you’re just doing you. I pray that as you listen to this song, may it minister to your spirit today as you focus on accepting who are you in Christ Jesus. God Bless You Everybody!

Church Can Keep Seniors Healthy and Happy

This Article is a guest post submitted to me by Jason Lewis at Strongwell.orgI pray that this post blesses you today.

Church can offer a wealth physical, spiritual and emotional benefits to seniors. As experts note, “Due to life circumstances that may be unique to their age or health concerns, elderly people often confront a variety of emotions or mindsets that may be somewhat debilitating and hard to bear. These include a sense of isolation, loneliness, boredom, and grief, as well as others.” Here are the ways attending church can help with these feelings.

Church Cuts Out Loneliness

Church is a very social activity which can be especially helpful for seniors who may feel cut off from society. Attending church gives seniors a positive community to be a part of, and gives them a regular, healthy connection to others. Feelings of isolation and loneliness can be dangerous for older adults, and a lack of social connection may lead to loss of sleep, depression and anxiety. When left unchecked, these feelings can cause seniors to turn to alcohol or drugs to cope, resulting in a dangerous addiction. By connecting with others at church, the elderly can absolve themselves of these negative feelings and find stability in the process. They can find new friends and new people to help them out when times get rough.

Attending Church is a Much Needed Activity

As people age, they give up much of the hustle of their younger lives. They may leave careers and may not be able to continue some of the hobbies that kept them so busy. A lack of routine or mobility can leave seniors bored, but attending church is a wonderful, and low-key, way to get out of the house. Seniors can have a practical, positive reason for getting up and getting moving. Church services are offered pretty regularly too, with socials and activities during the week, so getting involved with a church is a great way for seniors to get active again and reduce the negative effects of a sedentary lifestyle.

Prayer Can Be a Form of Meditation

Related imageStudies have shown that mindfulness and meditation can have a positive impact on the well-being of those who practice, and seniors are not immune to these effects. You may not think it, but the act of prayer is very similar to meditation. It’s a quiet, peaceful time for inward reflection and a chance to ponder your connection to the greater universe. Turning within can help seniors live in the moment and remain thankful for the life they have. This kind of mindful meditation is also helpful in reducing stress and may lower blood pressure, both of which can help strengthen the health of the elderly.

Church Can Provide Renewed Purpose

Connecting with others, getting out of the house, and quiet contemplation are all such powerful reasons for seniors to attend church. When these elements combine, seniors may find the most compelling reason of all to join a church: a revived sense of purpose in their lives. Church helps attendees find a higher connection to the universe and helps them see their place within it. Seniors may also find themselves in the position to impart wisdom upon younger generations or participate in community service projects, which adds meaning to their life. Religious teachings and activities can have a major impact at such an important time in the lives of older adults.

Although important in their own right, religion and spiritual redemption are not the sole benefits of regularly attending church services. Church has the power to create the loving connections, regular routines, peaceful reflections and sense of purpose that can be so empowering to elderly adults. With church, seniors can find a connection to God, to the world, and most importantly, to themselves again.

Can You Hold Me Lord?

Hello Peeps!

Image result for jesus comforterI just had to post this awesome song by NF feat. Britt Nicole called Can You Hold Me. If feel that this song is very soothing and encouraging for someone feeling low right about now. When you feel like you are alone, just know that God is there with you. Some people may be going through agonizing pain that they find it difficult to reach out to others who can help them. This can lead people to think and meditate on negative things and open the door for suicidal thoughts and patterns of behaviour. When you notice that someone is going through something like this, be the hands and feet of Jesus and extend yourself to reach out to the hurting, the lost and the broken souls out there that need to know that Jesus loves them no matter what, and that they can feel that love demonstrated through you by your actions. We shouldn’t just have lip-service and sit by as idle observers to other peoples pain when we can be the hands and feet of Jesus doing good wherever we go, Amen! I pray that this song minsters to the broken hearted that need a touch of God’s love today. Please share this post with someone if you feel that it can minister to them today. God Bless You Everybody! 😀

For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.

Blessed are those who mourn, For they shall be comforted.

Now may the God of patience and comfort grant you to be like-minded toward one another, according to Christ Jesus,

But he who prophesies speaks edification and exhortation and comfort to men.

Comfort in Suffering

Image result for jesus comforterBlessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfortwho comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by GodFor as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds through Christ. Now if we are afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effective for enduring the same sufferings which we also suffer. Or if we are comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation. 7 And our hope for you is steadfast, because we know that as you are partakers of the sufferings, so also you will partake of the consolation.

A Lesson for the Husbands with Wives

Hello Peeps!

I have one more inspirational short clip about the role of Husbands and Wives that my parents shared with me via WhatsApp. In various societies, Men and Women are treated differently according to cultural and societal norms; however, Biblically speaking, the norm that should exist in any marital relationship should follow this verse of scripture:

Image result for marriage facebook bannerEphesians 5:22-33

Marriage—Christ and the Church

22 Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body. 24 Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything.

25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, 26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, 27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. 28 So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. 29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church. 30 For we are members of His body,[d]of His flesh and of His bones. 31 “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.”[e] 32 This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church. 33 Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.

As you watch this video, for those that are married, or are about to be married, or if you’re still single just like me… I believe that you can learn a lot about how to treat your partners and/or future spouse in a Christ-like fashion. We should treat others in the way we ourselves would like to be treated. There should be no competition or difference in treatment when God created us to be equal in standing and complimentary to each other. I pray that this video blesses your spirit today. God Bless You Everybody! 😀

When A Situation Changes…

Hello Peeps!

Image result for genuine peopleToday, I got this video from my Dad via WhatsApp and wanted to share it with you today to get you thinkin’. Isn’t it amazing to have supportive people in your life when you go through life’s struggles and pains and yet, they are there in your darkest hours? Isn’t it also amazing to see those that disappear from you when you find yourself stuck between a rock and a hard place? You have to always constantly assess the types of people you surround yourself with in your life. Some people can be fickle and some can be very flaky in terms of their personalities. We all need people who are solid and aren’t too quick to abandon you at the first sight of trouble, especially in a marital relationship. You don’t want to marry a flaky man or woman who didn’t whole-heartedly mean everything they said when you said your vows during your wedding day.

Image result for genuine peopleEven in simple friend relationships, you need to know the difference between those you find to be fickle rather than solid in terms of their personalities and character traits. The greatest thing to remember as a Christian, is that even when people abandon you, disappoint you, and desert you when the going gets tough in your life, just remember that God will always be with you no matter what. He is not a man that He should abandon you in your trials. He will never leave nor forsake you so remember that when you’re going through life’s trials and tribulations, don’t put too much trust or dependence in people who are imperfect beings to begin with. You will find yourself faced with various disappointments if you rely on people too much. Not all people are bad people, but not all people are perfect or reliable either, so just remember where all your help comes from and try to be the friend you would like to have for yourself.

God is not a manthat He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?

Matthew 7:12 (NKJV)

12 Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.

Image result for You get what you dish out

I find it funny how often people conveniently forget this one important thing – which is a FACT: “You get what you dish out”. If you dish out sincerity, then you should expect sincerity in return. If you are fickle-minded and flaky in your relationships with other people, then don’t be surprised when other people return the favour and are flaky and fickle-minded towards you in return. Treat people in the way you would like to be treated and be genuine in your intentions when trying to relate to others. It is better to be the genuine article and emulate a Christ-like attitude in all that you do, rather than opt to being a selfish and self-absorbed human being. Don’t be a “pick-n-choose” Christian and just be a genuine Christian period, Amen! I pray that this video blesses your Spirit today. God Bless You Everybody! 😀


Defying the Odds

Hello Peeps!

I have here a short testimony of a woman who was a cyclist who had been hit by a truck and about the things she endured and learned from that accident. It took a lot for her to recover and to find a new zeal for life when given bad news concerning her health and abilities from the report she received from her doctor. She was told what she could and couldn’t do by medical professionals but she chose to defy the odds and endured depression as well, but she chose to overcome all of that.

Image result for cyclist accident

Listening to her story reminds me of how I had to overcome a sickness (encephalitiscauses short-term memory loss) this past year and half that affected my memory. It took a full year of rehabilitation to build back my memory, and the part of my brain that was damaged by the sickness won’t recover; however, I have developed new synapses in my brain that has created new neuro-pathways that is helping me remember things in a different way.

Image result for no limits quotesI’ve had to adapt and work on new strategies and habits to make me strengthen my memories and how I remember things, and have found that I’ve defied the odds of what some specialists have said or expected of me. I thought that I wouldn’t be able to drive again since my license was medically suspended, but I defied that odd as well and have had my license reinstated some months ago after passing a driving test. Just because some people tell you negative things concerning your circumstances, doesn’t mean you have to embrace people’s words and negative confessions towards you whole-heartedly. God created us to be able to overcome any obstacles, so just remember, that no matter what it is that you face in life, remember that you were built to overcome, Amen! I pray that this video blesses and encourages your spirit today. God Bless You Everybody! 😀

These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

1 John 5:4

For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.

And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations—

The Weight of a Glass of Water

Hello Peeps!

Image result for glass of water facebook bannerSo many of us carry a burden of worries that could be lifted if we just cast them away and give them to the Lord. Sometimes, as people, we resort to all kinds of things trying to solve our issues with our own might and power, but there comes a point where we must realize that we have limitations and that is when we have to reach out to the All Knowing and All Powerful God that is able to lift our burdens and make it light again. When you watch this video, think about the way you’ve being holding onto things that you need to surrender to God so that you can be set free from worry and to walk by faith and not by what you see, Amen! This message isn’t just for you but for me as well since I tend to like having control of what’s happening in my life. I pray that this video blesses you! God Bless You everybody! 😀

Psalm 55:22 [Full Chapter]

Cast your burden on the Lord, And He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.

Matthew 11:30 [Full Chapter]

For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
