The Reward of Genuine Diligence

Hello Peeps!

I have an amazing short video for you today about a young clerk called George C. Boldt who worked at a hotel and happened to receive an amazing opportunity to manage one of the most noted hotels in the world all because he entertained famous strangers with an act of kindness who also happened to be the owners of the Waldof-Astoria Hotel.

Sometimes the breakthroughs you have in life come to you in the most unexpected places. You never know who it is that you are entertaining so it is always important to develop that mindset to treat each stranger with kindness and always do things like as if you were doing it unto the Lord. The Young Man didn’t expect anything in return for his act of kindness since his attitude defined his true character.

Sucking up to people won’t guarantee true success, and promotion that comes from God is always the best to receive when you value having a Christ-like attitude in everything that you do. Do not be pretentious about your conduct just in order to get promoted and move ahead in life. Be genuine in all that you do because what you do in secret, the Lord will reward you openly. I pray that as you watch this video, think about the type of person you want to be and always remember that every kind act you have ever bestowed on someone has been accounted in Heaven as righteousness. I pray that this video blesses you today. God Bless You Everybody! 😀

The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness; According to the cleanness of my hands He has recompensed me.

The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness; According to the cleanness of my hands He has recompensed me.

Matthew 6 (NKJV)

Do Good to Please God

Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven. Therefore, when you do a charitable deed, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory from men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. 3 But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly.[a]

Richard Dawkins – Atheist 

I just wanted to post this funny short clip concerning Ravi Zacharias talking about a well-known biologist and atheist/non-believer called Richard Dawkins. I just want to state that there are many people apart from him who don’t believe in the existence of God, and therefore, do not believe in the reality of there being a “Heaven” and “Hell” existing as our final places of judgment after we die based on how we have lived and what we have chosen to believe. God wants us all to remember that it is through His Son Jesus that none of us should perish but have everlasting life.

Many unbelievers want to explain away through many theories of how the world came to being, but the fact remains is that all these things and all miracles are works of an almighty power to whom we all know is GOD. As Christians, we can profess our faith to others and evangelize and share why we believe in what we believe. Not many people will receive the Truth; however, we shouldn’t stop professing our faith regardless of people’s reactions. It’s not easy to evangelize in a world that is trying to silence the voices of Faith with their worldly understandings and intellect. However, at the end of the day, God still loves everyone unconditionally even when they are deaf or belligerent about hearing the WORD of TRUTH through the gospels. My prayer is that we continue to pray unceasingly for others even when they don’t believe in what we believe and to constantly demonstrate the love of God through our actions. Lip-service isn’t enough if we don’t match our faith with our actions, Amen! I pray that this video blesses you today God Bless You Everybody! 😀

John 17:3 [Full Chapter]

And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.

John 3:14-16 (NKJV)

14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15 that whoever believes in Him should not perish but[a] have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Just Keepin’ it Real for Ya!

Hello Peeps!

I have a short motivation for your lovely Thursday by Pastor Marcus Gill. How many of you know that in this world you will have haters, but take heart, you’ve overcome their haterade lol 😀 . You don’t have to entertain people that clearly don’t want to have anything to do with you.

  • Image result for Luke 6:31 facebook bannerDon’t be needy for attention.
  • Don’t be an attention seeker either.
  • Learn to stay in your lane and keep going about your business.
  • Don’t associate yourself with people that prefer to associate with you in private but when in public spaces they refuse to acknowledge your existence.
  • Learn the difference between a real friend versus a fake friend. You’ll avoid a lifetime of pain when you learn to discern who’s really for you and who’s really against you.
  • Don’t cling onto dead-end relationships. If people want to be in your life, they’ll make an honest effort to be a part of it.
  • Remember that in order to have friends you have to be a friend so treat people in the way that you’d like to be treated.
  • Don’t take meaningful relationships for granted.
  • Always walk with integrity and self-respect.
  • Refuse to be a people-pleaser and choose to be a God-chaser.

At the end of the day, the sum of who you are is determined by how you treat others in relation to yourself. If you lack dignity and self-respect, you won’t be able to treat others with respect so learn to build on having self-respect so that you don’t allow people to trample all over you, and that you in turn, don’t trample all over others in return. Be the kind of person that resembles the attitude of Christ in all that you do and you will draw people to you because of your loving nature and charisma.

Luke 6:31 [Full Chapter]

And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise.

Do to others what you would have done to yourself, Amen! I pray that this short clip blesses you today. God Bless You Everybody! 😀

To the ONE with VIRTUE…

Hello Peeps!

Today, I want to post this short video clip about a mechanic who was looking for a job. I got this video from my parent’s via WhatsApp and I thought it was such a great video to share with you today just to boost your spirit if you’re feeling low.

Image result for virtue christianSome people don’t realize who they entertain in their daily lives by their conduct. Think of it this way, everywhere you go, you’re character and personality is always being scrutinized and interviewed by the people around you. How you conduct yourself in public and in private will determine how far you will go in life. If you sow acts of kindness, you’ll reap acts of kindness in return. However, if you sow strife and discord, you’ll also reap the repercussions of strife and discord into your own life.

It is very important to understand that many people may look at the outward appearance of a man or woman, but God is always assessing us by our hearts. In the same way, you should be mindful that the strangers you entertain in your life today, maybe the lifelines you will need in order to move forward and ahead in your life on the basis of your Character. The type of character anyone displays in life is a reflection of one’s heart and one’s spirit. Ask yourself, What is the current nature of your heart and spirit?

Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels.

Image result for virtue christian

If anything, the nature of your heart and spirit should display the following virtues found in these passages of Scripture:

Galatians 5:22-24 (NKJV)

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. 24 And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.

Image result for virtue facebook banner

  • Be conscientious about your attitude that you display to others in all that you do.
  • Do not suck up to people pretentiously just in order to receive favor to move ahead.
  • Be the genuine article and do not act like a fake.

Philippians 2:3 [Full Chapter]

Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.

It is important that in whatever it is you do in life, you must always strive for excellence, humility and self-control. These are a few of the greater virtues that we need in life in order to live as amazing human beings. I pray that as you watch this video, may it encourage you to work hard on changing your attitude to reflect the heart of our Saviour Jesus Christ, and be a lending hand to someone in need. You will be greatly rewarded for your honest and humble behaviour from our Father Who is in Heaven. I pray that this video blesses you today. God Bless You Everybody! 😀

Craving God Daily – Inner Groanings of the Holy Spirit

Hello Peeps!

Image result for Seek GodI just had to share this awesome song by Tye Tribbett called Craving. When we draw near to God, He will draw near to us. We need to remember that no matter what it is that you face, when you don’t even have the words to pray, the Holy Spirit is said to even intercede for us with inner groanings that cannot be uttered. Take comfort and know that God will intercede for you even when you can’t find the Words to seek for His help. All you have to do as a Christian, is to draw closer to the heart of the Father in what you say, do and believe. I pray that as you listen to this song by Tye Tribbett, may it minister to your heart today. God Bless You Everybody! 😀

Romans 8:25-27 NKJV)

25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.

26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us[a] with groanings which cannot be uttered27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

Sunday’s Coming

Hello People! 😀

I just had to post this video for Easter Sunday. Our God conquered the grave by raising Himself from the dead on the third day. We’ve got to give our God the highest praise for that. Though we were dead in our sins, Christ died for us so that we could become free. We have the victory in Jesus because death has lost it’s victory, it has lost its sting. We can be redeemed by the powerful blood of Jesus Christ. I pray that this video will bless your spirit today. God Bless You Everybody! 😀

Jesus Predicts His Death and Resurrection ] From that time Jesus began to show to His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised the third day.

For He taught His disciples and said to them, “The Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of men, and they will kill Him. And after He is killed, He will rise the third day.”

and they will mock Him, and scourge Him, and spit on Him, and kill Him. And the third day He will rise again.”

saying, “The Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised the third day.”

saying, ‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.’”

Then He said to them, “Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day,

From the Mouth of Babes – Passover

Hello Peeps!

Image result for Children love Jesus facebook bannerI have this cute short video from these two cute kids talking about their faith in Jesus. I’m sure it will warm your heart today as we remember this season of the Passover. God Bless You Everybody! 😀

Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have ordained strength, Because of Your enemies, That You may silence the enemy and the avenger.

and said to Him, “Do You hear what these are saying?” And Jesus said to them, “Yes. Have you never read, ‘Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have perfected praise’?”

To The Boy Who Cried Wolf…

Hello Peeps!

Image result for cried wolfThere are moments when parents do the very best they can to bring up their children in the way that they should go… but sometimes, kids have minds of their own and think they “know-it-all” and can cry “Wolf!” when it’s convenient just in order to escape discipline. When I was a kid, I’d get spanked if I was naughty… and well, it’s led me be more disciplined and self-controlled as an individual unlike other kids I see here in North America. Now, I want to get this straight, I don’t advocate child abuse… but I see nothing wrong in spanking a kid who is totally out of control just in order to discipline them. Having said that though, there are also various methods of disciplining a child without having to spank them that can get the point across, so parents need to learn what works well enough to get your child to be self-disciplined while also exhibiting self-control.

Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.

That whole idea of “Sparing the Rod and Spoiling the Child” comes from this verse of scripture found in:

Proverbs 13:24 (NKJV)

24 He who spares his rod hates his son,
But he who loves him disciplines him promptly.

Image result for spankingThe Bible even tells us that disciplining a child is an act of LOVE, however, not many kids that I see here in North America have that going on for themselves based on my observation. Now, I know that in North America, people are divided about how one should discipline a child. Some people even claim that “spanking” is child abuse…. I am of a different opinion. Spanking is necessary when a child is totally out of control. NOW, LET ME MAKE THIS PERFECTLY CLEAR before some of you decided to stone me…. I don’t advocate beating a child down to a pulp just to get your message across… There is a fine line between a slap in the face/butt and then beating a child into oblivion… that’s totally out of control. Spanking or slapping a kid across their face or butt never killed anyone, especially those teenagers that like to run their mouths with “I know already!!!” and “You can’t tell me what to do!!!….” with many explicatives that follow after those sentences type of nonsense. As a previous youth leader, I’ve seen kids out of control who lacked discipline and get into trouble with the law on a consistent basis just because they lacked discipline or an understanding of the repercussions and consequences for their actions.

Image result for tantrum

Is your child giving you a tantrum?

On the other hand, I have also witnessed those that heeded to instruction and discipline who ended up being able to achieve great things as they turned their chaotic lives around for the better once they understood what it meant to receive guidance and true mentor-ship from mature individuals while learning how to operate in HUMILITY. Humility is a rare commodity these days, and I can tell you that we need more of it in this crazy world that we live in. The contrast is just too great between an undisciplined child versus a disciplined child. If you find a child/youth running amok, destroying your neighbors property, etc, and exhibiting behaviour that is totally uncontrollable in the process, then just know that the police won’t spare their rods on that child just because some parents are “too meek” to discipline their child in the way that they should go. At the end of the day, parents will have to answer to the Lord for their actions or inactions about how they reared their child in the way that the should go if they fail to instill sound discipline to guide their child in the right direction.

Image result for tantrum

Blowing off steam and having a tantrum won’t get you what you want kid!

If you are a parent, it is important to have a balance in the way you correct a misbehaving child by setting up clear and proper boundaries when training up a child in the way that they should go about doing life and living as a Godly person. Children are not stupid and can tell when a parent is being HYPOCRITICAL in both their actions and in their words. If you tell your child to not do something and yet YOU the parent do otherwise, you set yourself up for failure when trying to “discipline” or “correct” them and at the same time, bring about confusion in your household when you operate with DOUBLE STANDARDS. A child knows when their parents are being hypocrites, so it is VERY IMPORTANT that in order to discipline your child effectively, your words must match your actions AT ALL TIMES. You can’t tell your child to not smoke weed or cigarettes if you yourself smoke these things. You can’t tell your child to stop being wild and rambunctious, when you yourself are wild and humiliating in their presence. That type of double-standard mentality brings about confusion and discord in your family. It is so important to have your words match your actions, PARENTS! NEED I SAY MORE!!!!!!

Ephesians 6:4 (NIV)

Fathers,[a] do not exasperate your childreninstead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.

“Why won’t you listen to me!???!!!”

As a former Youth Leader, I’ve seen youth get into trouble with the law because of how dysfunctional their home-life is. Many of the youth that get into trouble with the law feel misunderstood and unheard as they are easily labeled as “misfits in society” who can’t seem to follow basic instructions. The thing is… how can anyone lead a successful life without proper direction or guidance from people that actually care for them?

Image result for Crips and bloodsI remember a time when I was in high school that unbeknown-st to me, I had mentored some of my peers who were students at the same school I attended, were apparently also affiliated in some of the popularly known notorious gangs such as the Crips and the Bloods… These students were drawn to join in these gangs because they felt like they fit in the “gang life” and also because in their gang, they felt that there was some sense of being in a “Family” and “Belonging” unlike their true “flesh-and-blood-related” families. In my ignorance, I used to wear different coloured bandannas when I was in high school as just a fashion statment. I had worn a red, blue, white and black bandanna that I would alternate in each colour that I would wear at school each day completely ignorant of the fact that the colours of the bandannas I wore, all had a social meaning amongst gang members in terms of  gang affiliation….YIKES!!!!

Blue and/or White bandannas were affiliated with the Crips gang; Red and Black bandannas were affiliated with the Bloods gang (which was the opposing gang to the Crips) and Yellow bandannas were a sign that you were affiliated with the Kings gang. In my ignorance, I wore all of these colours for fun as a fashion statement until I noticed that some students who were gang members in the school would fear me and make way for me in the hallways whenever I passed by them simply because they were confused about my so-called affiliation status. LET ME BE CLEAR RIGHT NOW AND SAY: I was not affiliated to any gang… However, I was completely ignorant of this social norm concerning my wearing these bandannas amongst my peers, until a friend of mine who was a guy that happened to be in “the Crips gang” asked me if I was affiliated with any gang. He told me that the reason why some people were scared of me in the school was because they couldn’t ascertain what gang I was affiliated with because I kept changing my bandanna colours everyday. And here I thought I was wearing a bandanna as a “fashion statement” in my ignorance. Ignorance is not BLISS PEOPLE! I obviously stopped wearing bandannas after that confrontation; however, it explained why some people were weary of me back then lol! 😀 ! I shake my head at myself lol! 😀

Crip Blood Kings

FYI – Each gang has a colour bandanna associated with them as identification amongst themselves to determine which gang a member may be affiliated with.

So going back to the topic of disciplining your child, if a child can’t feel protected or secure within their own flesh-and-blood family, then is it a wonder why some of them venture outside the family to find a place where they feel like they belong? Is it a wonder why joining a “gang” may appear to be an attractive choice to a youth that wants to feel some sense of belonging in a group of friends that feel more closer to you than a brother, sister, mother or father (their own flesh and blood)? I think parents need to WAKE UP!

Children are not stupid parents!!!! So my prayer today is that parents learn to communicate effectively with your own children so that you can direct them in the right direction. Do not be afraid of correcting your child if they are misbehaving and acting childish or out of control. It is important to discipline a child, otherwise if you fail to discipline them while they are still young, believe me when I say that law enforcement (THE POLICE), will take on the baton later on as your back up to dealing with your out-of-control child/children if you choose to fail in this area of their lives. Don’t allow your children to stray in the wrong direction and be the rod that a shepherd uses to guide their sheep back on track and in the right direction. Think about all this as you watch this video today. I pray that it may give you some food for thought today. God Bless You Everybody! 😀

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.
