How do I love myself?

Just recently we celebrated Valentine’s Day… The reactions and behaviors of persons, even weeks after Valentine’s Day has prompted me to write… It was a day that some looked forward to. For others, not so much. A very popular celebration in the Americas, Valentine’s Day is widely known as the day you shower extra loveContinue reading “How do I love myself?”

Compassion 

“A few days later, when Jesus again entered Capernaum, the people heard that he had come home. They gathered in such large numbersthat there was no room left, not even outside the door, and he preached the word to them. Some men came, bringing to him a paralyzed man,carried by four of them. Since they could not getContinue reading “Compassion “

Can you actually be blameless?

You know when you read a story, that you have read many many times before and find something new every time you read it? That is the bible for me. Now I have read the Christmas story often. I would have said that I knew the story very well. But I read a sentence thisContinue reading “Can you actually be blameless?”

The most Humble person

Last week I wrote about gentleness and quietness of spirit. This week let us look at another character that is pleasing to God. “(Now Moses was a very humble man, more humble than anyone else on the face of the earth.)” Numbers 12:3 Outside of Jesus who humbled himself to come on earth to die forContinue reading “The most Humble person”

When you walk through the fire,     you will not be burned;     the flames will not set you ablaze. Isaiah 43:2 (NIV) We all need encouragement. Sometimes we get so bogged downContinue reading “You are doing better than you think you are”

A man’s man

“Jesus wept.” John 11:35 Society today demands that men shouldn’t cry. It isn’t a manly action. Many Christians also live this point of view. To be honest I have looked on men who cry and been amazed and astonished because I have grown up in an environment and society that believes that men should not cry. AndContinue reading “A man’s man”

Has Jesus prayed for you?

The Bible is such an amazing guide for life that not only provides instructions but also healing and comfort. Today I want to ask you, has Jesus prayed for you? Sounds strange doesn’t it? After all, we pray to HIM.   But in John 17:20-26, we note that Jesus says a very powerful prayer forContinue reading “Has Jesus prayed for you?”

Same ole Same ole

Is your heart and mind in the right place when you enter the presence of God? Has your spiritual life become a habit instead of an attitude of devotion and praise? Let us be like David who said “You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.” Psalm‬ ‭63:1‬ ‭
