If Jesus were to give a sermon in your church today


Would you listen?

If Jesus were to give a sermon in your church today, would you pay attention? Or would you be too busy listening to the other teacher(s)? (Thank you, Doug for pointing that out to me)

Jesus said He was the only teacher.

Jesus told us to follow Him (not anyone else).

And He said that He spoke His Father’s words and followed His Father’s commandments.

Do you?

And if you don’t… who are you following and why?

Jesus taught us about conduct of life and spirituality. He taught us God’s Love Rules. He explained why they are important. 

And He lived according to these rules to show us how it is done.

Thank you Jesus, I love you for your sacrifice. I love you for your exemplary life and for the example you set for us to live a sinless and love-filled life.

Conversations with a family member about what is meant when we’re told to ‘invite Jesus into our hearts’ motivated me to study the Bible in-depth. 

The answer to this question was not readily available and inspired me to continue with my Bible studies. 

In the process, five common Christian myths were busted and I discovered what true love is all about.

I’ve bundled my findings in ‘The Truth, Love & God Series’ and just launched book three in this trilogy; ‘The Core Message of the Bible in a Few Pages – God’s Love Rules: The Truth About The Good News (The Truth, Love & God series Book 3).’

I’m always eager for genuine and constructive feedback.

The Safest Cycling Helmet on the Planet Earth!


So Happy That I Lost My Helmet

  • I lost my helmet
  • Discovered MIPS technology
  • Discovered Bontrager Wave Cell technology
  • Understand more about the Australian and New Zealand safety standard (AS/NZS 2063)
  • Am now 48 times less likely to get a brain injury when I go riding

Is it all about the colour?

I love cycling on my Gekko HP Velotechnik recumbent trike. Thank you, Gekko! And naturally, I want to be safe when I do so. I tell you what happened after I lost my helmet the other day.

I Lost My Helmet

By law we need to wear a bicycle helmet, here in Queensand, Australia, when we go out for a cycle.

How on earth did I last week end up back home without my helmet, without my glasses, without my scarf and without my gloves? I do not know.

One moment I’m cycling wearing all of these, the next moment I’m back home with none of these.

I’m not going into detail as to why this happened because the short answer is that I do not know how this happened. Also I have spare glasses, spare scarves and even spare gloves. The only thing I don’t have is a spare helmet. All I had to do was get myself another helmet.

One of my children offered me her helmet but I was not okay with that. What would she do if she wanted to go for a ride? A helmet is mandatory.

Buying a New Seven-Dollar Helmet at Kmart For Mum

So off we went to Kmart to buy another helmet. It’s all about colour, right? To stay safe, we want a bright colour.

Kmart has nice pink helmets for seven dollars. That’ll do me.

My other daughter also needs a helmet because the straps on hers broke the other day. She wants a blue one. But not a Kmart one. She wants a fashionable one. Fair enough, she’s young. When we’re young, we want fashionable helmets. Where does she want to go for her helmet? She tells me that she has seen a nice blue one online for sixty dollars. I nearly choke. Sixty dollars for a helmet? Just because of shape and colour?

Whatever, she’s young. She can do whatever she likes. I’m happy with my pink seven-dollar Kmart helmet. That’ll do me.

Shopping Online for Crystal

When we get home, Crystal goes online and shares with me her selection of helmets. “Why blue? And why that shape,” I ask. Knowing that blue is her favourite colour. But fifty-three dollars worth of favourite colour?
“It matches her outfit,” she tells me. Her preferred shape is more fashionable.

Change Of Direction… Looking for Red Helmets

Okay, I’m thinking, why shouldn’t I get a colour that matches my outfit? So far I’ve just thrown stuff together so as not to get a chill when I’m cycling. But she’s planted the seed and all of a sudden I find myself googling red coloured helmets. My trike is red you see. Hell, I’m thinking I may even match the Gekko red with lippie.

This is fun. We’re both googling till our fingers are sore and it’s time to go to bed. Price, what price, who cares; I saw a gorgeous red coloured helmet… red is a safe colour, right? I like the colour of the Align helmet best.

I find a local retailer that stocks these helmets for fifty-nine dollars and tomorrow morning I’ll be on the phone to them.

Red It Is!

First thing in the morning I phone the cyclist shop. 

“I’m after one of these red helmets, this is the code. Do you have one in store in my size please?”

For whatever reason, I cannot find their webpage back online but I had made note of the helmet code.

Bob from the cyclist shop also cannot find the page, “it’s down,” he says, “for maintenance,” so he cannot look up the code at the moment.

“What was I after again?”

I answered, “I’m a girl, it’s all about the colour and I want the helmet to match my bike which is red.”

Or Is It MIPS?

He misunderstood me and thought I said MIPS.

“Was it a MIPS helmet?” he asked. 

“What’s MIPS?” I say. 

“MIPS is good,” Bob says.

“Talk me into it,” I say.

And he did.

He said, “MIPS prevents you from getting a concussion when you have a fall.”

What? I thought all helmets would do that.

Apparently not.

Well, that’s news to me. Call me naïve, but without giving it much thought, I thought all helmets would prevent me from getting a concussion. 

Not true. 

Oh.

Suddenly, colour wasn’t as much of a priority. I truly thought all helmets would prevent me from getting a serious injury in case of an accident.

My seven-dollar Kmart helmet has a label certifying that the helmet meets the Australian and New Zealand standard (AS/NZS 2063) and has passed stringent safety tests. What does that mean?

According to the ultimate bike helmet buying guide, this means, what I also thought to be true, and that price is irrelevant when it comes to safety because all helmets are approved. Below is what I copied and pasted from the Bike Exchange website on the 6th of July 2020.

Right? Wrong!

You see. I had been happy with my seven-dollar Kmart helmet because, till my daughter planted other seeds, I didn’t care about colour, shape or weight. I thought that as long as a helmet was approved and had the (AS/NZS 2063) seal I was going to be safe from serious injury because my helmet would protect me. My helmet, which had come with the bike, had served me well and when I lost it I was happy to buy another one off the shelf from Kmart because it was quick, easy and affordable.

MIPS Reduces Traumatic Brain Injuries

What I discovered by listening to Bob from the Adrenaline Bike shop is that the MIPS helmets came about when a scientist and neurosurgeon collaborated to reduce traumatic brain injuries caused by bike accidents.

The MIPS design was patented in 2002. 

In a nutshell, MIPS is designed to soak up some of the energy from oblique impacts to protect the brain.

Sounds good to me.

Wow! Thank you, Bob, for explaining all this to me. 

We’ve clearly come a long way from when I was riding a bicycle as a child without a helmet and got concussed quite a few times when I tumbled off my bike without a helmet. 

I thought that the Australian and New Zealand standard stringent safety test (AS/NZS 2063) were sufficient protection when buying a helmet. 

After talking to Bob, I understand that there is more to it than that. And that technology has come a long way in the last few years.

The good news is that the MIPS is available for around $60. So now we can have fashion and safety rolled into one.

However, this is not all that Bob had to share.

But Wait, There’s More

“Better still,” he said.

“Yes, what?” I asked.

“There is even more advanced technology,” he said.

“Okay,” I said. “Talk me into it.”

By now I understood that the precious grey matter between my ears could be protected better than I thought, and I wanted to know all there was to know about it.

Particularly because only a month ago my goofy big Dane cross had pulled me over which had caused me a rib dislocation. This had happened at near-enough standstill speed. Because of this I had decided not to take Layla, or Blondie as her nickname goes, on rides with me any longer.

I was happy at the time that I was wearing a helmet because with the fall, I banged my head and ribs against rocks and that could have ended quite differently if it had been just my skull without the protection.

This fall alerted me to the need for good protection.

It’s just that at the time I thought I had the best possible protection available for seven dollars.

I know, silly me. I don’t always think everything out. Maybe I should share Layla’s nickname.

Bob continued.

“Six months ago I was riding with ten mates on the Sunshine Coast and we all went down. It was a bad crash and I was the only guy in the team that went home without a concussion.”

That’s impressive.

“Why was that?”

Bontrager WaveCel technology

Bob grinned, “I was the only rider wearing a Bontrager WaveCel helmet.”

“Okay, you talked me into it. Tell me more.”

“Not so long ago, in March 2019, a new system was patented by Bontrager, the WaveCel Technology.”

Below I’ve copied and pasted from www.prnewswire.com on July 6th, 2020.

It sounds like WaveCel technology is better than MIPS but is this true?

Once I got home I did more research online.

Is WaveCel Technology better than MIPS?

Outside Online tells us the following copied and pasted on the 5th of July 2020.

How did the team come to that conclusion?

Science Direct gives more detail about Evaluation of a novel bicycle helmet concept in oblique impact testing.

Summing up the Research

Foam-only helmets, and this includes helmets which meet the Australian and New Zealand standard (AS/NZS 2063) have the highest brain-injury risk at 50 percent.

Followed by the MIPS with a brain-injury risk of 34%.

And the clear winner is the WaveCel technology helmet which has a brain injury risk of just 1.2 percent.

When we read, ‘Australian and New Zealand standard (AS/NZS 2063)’ we should understand that this is ‘a minimum requirement’ and not necessarily ‘the best available’ or ‘adequate protection’ given the circumstances.

Do your research. Be Safe!

It took me 15 minutes to become more educated about safe bicycle helmets. If you are like me and thought that the Australian and New Zealand standard (AS/NZS 2063) label will keep you and yours safe… think again.

You’ll be safer than riding without a helmet, that’s for sure. But not as safe as you can be, once you are aware of today’s technology.

Ecstatically Happy that I Lost My Helmet

You understand that I am ecstatically happy that I lost my helmet the other day. 

Had I not lost my helmet, it could have been years before I discovered the new WaveCel technology.

Without a doubt this is the helmet of the future and for those of us lucky enough to have discovered it, we can wear this helmet today when we go for a ride.

I soon hope to be picking up my red helmet that could be up to 48 times more effective at preventing concussions. I’ll be fashionable as well as safer.

And I like you to be safe as well and that’s why I’m sharing. So you know about this new technology and have a choice when you go cycling.

You’re welcome!

All I need to do now is plead with Bontrager to make a helmet that fits my puppy Mellow for when she rides with me in her fast-kart behind my trike.

Thank You. I Appreciate You!

Thank you to Bob the bikeman for alerting me to this new technology and to orthopedic surgeon Dr Steve Madey, Biomechanical engineer Dr Michael Bottlang and Bontrager. I appreciate you!

This post is in memory of my Mum. I also created this post last year.

I know that during the COVID19 season many Mum’s saw their homes convert into offices as well as schools. Your job may have tripled in volume and significance. People around you got sick and needed care and you provided and still are providing that care, and some of your charges died.
And yet, you keep going. And you continue to be that pillar of strength for all those around you. You are the best and  without you, this world is nothing and has nothing worth having. I applaud you!

My prayer for all the world’s Mum’s for the coming  year is to be blessed beyond your imagination. You are amazing angels sent from heaven! (2020)

Treat your Mum today!

My children organised a ‘Mothers Day Luncheon’ last year. To honour the visiting Mums and in memory of my Mum, I searched for memorable, funny and to-the-point quotes about Mums and Motherhood.

On Mother’s Day, we scattered the various quotes on the lunch table, held them down with little pebbles and heart chocolates, and the only challenge on the Day was, to get to the chocolates before the puppies did.

My favourite charity is feed-the-hungry where $6 will not only feed a child for a whole month but will also get them out of the dangerous junkyards scratching for food and back into school where they can get the education they need for a better future.

ABOUT THIS BLOG – We’re researching the truth of living forever according to GOD’s Holy Word; Sola Scripture. Popular opinion tells us that everyone who ‘believes’ and has ‘faith’ will go to heaven.

What is Christmas all about? Family traditions and religion


Read ‘The birth of Jesus was like this’ here

Read ‘Silent night holy night’ here

What is Christmas all about?

My family traditions and
religion during Christmas

I have a confession to make. I used to dread the ‘Holy Season.’
Not any more. I tell you what happened.

I was born in Australia and grew up in Europe. My dad was brought up as a Catholic and my Mum grew up a Protestant.

In Holland, we celebrated ‘Sinterklaas’ on the 5th of December.

Sinterklaas still is, all these years later, represented by an old man with a long white beard and a large red cloak. During my childhood, he arrived by boat and after this, he drove through our village streets on his white horse accompanied by his helpers, ‘de Zwarte pieten.’

Good children were rewarded with treats and gifts. Naughty children risked being put in ‘the bag’ by Santa’s helpers and taken back to Spain. Sinterklaas’ helpers looked black because of the soot they collected as they navigated chimneys with their load of gifts, to deliver goodies to the well-behaved children.

Thanks, Mum!

Scary stuff. My Mum didn’t like her children to be intimidated by imaginary strangers. Therefore she told us, kids, that Sinterklaas was fake and she would make sure that we received as many presents as the other children did.

Lotsa brownie points for my Mum there. She lost a fair amount of leverage throughout the year, I’m sure; not being able to threaten us with Zwarte Piet’s ‘bag.’ But whatever leverage she lost, she more than regained in respect for being a truthful parent who treated her children with thoughtful kindness.

I’m pretty sure that my siblings and I were the only children in our school who didn’t believe in Sinterklaas.

On the fifth of December we received lots of gifts and on the 25th of December, we celebrated Jesus’ birthday with a real Christmas tree with real candles. The tree was placed next to a nativity scene and all kinds of yummy foods that my Mum prepared according to Dutch tradition.

Thanks, Mum, for your honesty and truthfulness.  

Santa Claus

In my early twenties, I moved back to my country of birth, Australia, where I married an Englishman. He had never heard of Sinterklaas but couldn’t wait to introduce me to Santa Claus, also known as Father Christmas in his home country.

I’ve since discovered that both Sinterklaas and Santa Claus grew out of traditions surrounding the historical Saint Nicholas (a fourth-century Greek bishop and gift-giver of Myra). Different cultures, different names but the principles are the same. Lotsa gifts for good kids and naughty children… beware!

As a child, I cherished the celebrations surrounding Sinterklaas and Christmas. That whole end-of-year season was filled with fun and holiness, as far as I was concerned.

As a Mum with little children, I didn’t enjoy Christmas so much. I remember the Christmas period and weeks leading up to it as frantic and filled with too much cleaning, too much cooking, too many presents, and way too large a credit card bill!

Holy Season?

I started to dread the ‘Holy Season.’ 

After my health crumbled I wasn’t able to get out and buy a Christmas tree and presents etc and, after discussion, my teenage children and I agreed to stop celebrating Christmas.

This did not go down well with family. We were disowned by some and ignored by others.

Served us right. Because when in Rome, do as the Romans do.

By now I had started to read the Bible in earnest and couldn’t find Christmas in the Bible. Sure I found Jesus’ birth recorded but no date, nor an invite to celebrate. Does this matter at all?

In addition, I found Jesus’ Father rebuking people having parties around a tree, eating pork and such delicacies. He called them a stench up his nose.

In the context of various cultures celebrating the birth of Jesus the best we know how to… I don’t think it matters that much what day Jesus was born or how we celebrate His birth.

In the context of how Jesus said He would like to be remembered. It matters… to me. He did not ask us to remember the day he was born by giving gifts to each other. But at the Passover, he asked us to break bread and drink wine in remembrance of Him.

This do in remembrance of me

Before he was crucified Jesus took the cup and gave thanks. He also took bread, blessed it, and brake it, and gave unto his disciples, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. In the same way, he took the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

What is Christmas all about? And he took the bread... do this to remember me

What is Christmas all about? And he took the bread… do this to remember me

Did Jesus ask us to remember Him only at the weekly Holy Communion, as instituted by churches, or at the yearly Feast of the Passover or Easter or did He ask us to remember Him every time we eat bread and drink wine?

I gave it some thought and cannot think of any good reason why I wouldn’t want to remember Jesus several times a day in the way that He asked me to.

I leave it up to you to decide for yourself how often you would like to remember Jesus.

And that is exactly the point of this post.

Honour everyone’s traditions

With this post, I want to honour everyone’s traditions whatever they may be according to their culture and religion.

Who am I to tell anyone how to celebrate Christmas or any other religious feast?

I grew up celebrating Sinterklaas and Christmas. In my twenties, I married into a different culture which saw me adopt the Santa Claus tradition. After this, my girls and I for various reasons weren’t able to celebrate Christmas the way we knew how to, which was a mix of Dutch, English, Australian and religious celebrations and traditions.

After much reflection and a decade of inactivity in that regard, we now invite friends and family over to hang out during the holidays, and we remember Jesus how He told us that He would like to be remembered.

Part of my family rejected me when for various reasons I decided that my children and I wouldn’t celebrate Christmas any longer in the traditional way. The traditional way in my case had been excessive and decadent. And I was, and still am very happy to leave this self-indulgent behaviour behind.

When in Rome do as the Romans do? I stopped mixing with Romans because I couldn’t keep up with the requirements.

Honour and remember Jesus

Above all, more than honouring my family, friends or tradition I want to honour my Saviour and love of my life, Jesus. I want to do what He asked me to do in remembrance of Him.

Therefore, at lunch, I proposed a toast and said,

This toast is to our guest of honour, Yeshua. Even though no-one knows the date of his birth, today His name and birthday are celebrated all over the world.

Yeshua (meaning Saviour), also known as Jesus asked us to remember every time we break bread and drink wine, that His body was broken and His blood was shed on our behalf.

It is because of Yeshua’s sacrifice that we may live. He shows us the way.

Praise The Lord

Amen

On Christmas especially, I remember why His body was broken and how His blood was shed to atone for our sins.

Thank you, Jesus.

He was once an employee at the Vatican Secret Archives (yes, the Vatican Archives).

24 ENCOURAGING SCRIPTURE VERSES: HE HEALS THE BROKEN-HEARTED


Leave a comment

24 Encouraging Scripture Verses; HE heals the broken-hearted


24 Encouraging Scripture Verses; HE heals the broken-hearted

The Scripture Verses from last week (1) and this week (2) are from Psalm 121.

There is a personal story connected with this song/Psalm. And it goes like this:

Once upon a time I was lucky to own a dog named Song. She was gorgeous in personality as well as looks and we were all head over heels with Song. She was a Mastiff/Dane cross, with a beautiful cream colour coat and at 65 kilos she was a force to be reckoned with. Not that she ever exercised her authority. The most she would ever do was get up on her feet and gently place herself between the aggressor and the other person. That is all she ever really needed to do.

Song made us all feel safe from predators and aggressive people. When we slept, I knew that she had our back. When we, as three girls, travelled unknown towns with Song, no one ever approached us. Her imposing looks, kept us safe from predators.  I did not realise how much I counted on her presence till she died at the ripe old (dog) age of 14. I was absolutely devastated. Now what? I missed my lovely friend as well as our protector.

As usual, when I’m distressed, I opened up the Bible for comfort. The Bible fell open at Psalm 121 and I read,

I will lift up my eyes

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.
The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
 The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth,
and even for evermore.
Psalm 121

My Help Comes From The Lord

Instantly my mind was at peace and I realised that it was not my dog Song that had kept my family safe all these years. It was our Father in Heaven that looked over us. Sure, no doubt, he uses guardian angels, and Song may well have been one of those. But bottom line is, that it is God who takes care of our well being and keeps us safe. It is not man nor animal. Now we feel inspired to sing Psalm 121 whenever we go out in the car, knowing that protection comes from above.

My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of Heaven and Earth. Psalm 121:2

My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of Heaven and Earth. Psalm 121:2

We’re bound to be disappointed when we count on people to help us and keep us from harm. The Lord however, keeps all his promises and has never disappointed me.

24 Encouraging Scripture Verses for when we face BIG trouble with our health.

The Healing Power of Prayer; 24 encouraging Scripture verses for people with major illness


The Healing Power of Prayer; 24 encouraging Scripture verses for people with major illness  

A friend of mine, let’s call her Isabella, was recently diagnosed with a potentially life-threatening condition. After weeks of anxiety, tests and an operation, Isabella will now undergo radiation treatment.

It is an awful thing to be diagnosed with a major illness. And often we are at a loss as on how to proceed. The doctors say one thing. Friends, family, and neighbours all want to have their say also and the whole process of testing and treating can be a confusing and challenging time.

Our Lives are in God’s Hands

As friends, we may not always know what to do and how to help. All I really want to do  is hold Isabella in a tight hug and tell her that it will be OK. I want to tell her that our lives are in God’s hands and that he has good plans for her.

I think about my friend often and as usual, when I’m distressed about something, I find comfort in God’s Word. Prayer is known to reduce stress and inflammation in the body.

There is Healing Power in God’s Holy Word

People who pray are found to heal faster and have more peace of mind than people who don’t pray. And the same goes for people who are prayed for, regardless if they know that they are prayed for or not. Mmmm, interesting, isn’t it?

Does the strength of the healing power depend on the faith of the person praying? Sometimes, yes. But not always. 

There is healing power in God’s Holy Word which is as true today as it was thousands of years ago. We can claim the promises from God’s Holy Word as our own. It is as easy as that.

24 ENCOURAGING SCRIPTURE VERSES FOR PEOPLE WITH MAJOR ILLNESS

24 ENCOURAGING SCRIPTURE VERSES FOR PEOPLE WITH MAJOR ILLNESS

Isabella told me the other day that 25 radiation treatments have been scheduled ‘as a precaution.’ I found 25 Scripture verses to encourage my friend and others on a similar journey. One for each day of treatment.
The first Scripture Verse is below and the others will follow to help and encourage anyone needing comfort and encouragement during medical treatment of any kind.

The Lord Will Keep You

You can right-click your mouse on the Scripture Verses to ‘save image as’ to your computer and use them as a screensaver.

The Lord will keep you from all harm.. Psalm 121:7

The Lord will keep you from all harm.. Psalm 121:7

May the Lord hold you close, Isabella. And may he comfort you and others who are on a similar journey, and carry you through this period of therapy.

Much love to you my dear friend. I’m looking forward to our next gettogether.

How The Mystic Entrepreneur (Or Anybody Else) May Escape The Deadly Grip Of Fear: And Do Something Glorious


NEW BOOK available from Amazon

How The Mystic Entrepreneur (Or Anybody Else) May Escape The Deadly Grip Of Fear: And Do Something Glorious

by Gordon Boyd

BOOK DESCRIPTION

The book is a joy to read. The author really has heart for his readers and understands the ins and outs of how fear affects our lives in such a negative way. He gives many tips and hints on how to face your fears and start loving yourself. (Amazon Review)

How The Mystic Entrepreneur (Or Anybody Else) May Escape The Deadly Grip Of Fear: And Do Something Glorious

How The Mystic Entrepreneur (Or Anybody Else) May Escape The Deadly Grip Of Fear: And Do Something Glorious by Gordon Boyd

 

GORDON 1

This is a great read for self-help lovers. The author truly cares for his reader and reading the book feels like drinking from a fountain of wisdom of a caring family member. (Amazon Review)

Gordon understands…He has amassed an arsenal of information, including tips, tricks and methods, both general and specific, to help you eliminate fear…This book is amazing. The heart and soul of this author simply jumps off the page. I read a lot of books but rarely do I feel the real heart of the author through their writing. Gordon Boyd has taken on a project of immense scope. He holds nothing back……Gordon shares his wealth of knowledge……Highly recommended for any entrepreneur who is spiritually inclined. (International multiple best selling author – Sarah Saint Laurent)

If ever there were an authority on how to handle overcoming fear, it is definitely Gordon the Growth Guy! This book is ideal for anyone who wants to stop being a dabbler and start being a doer! Gordon takes the reader on an educational and very well-researched journey through mysticism, science, business etiquette, and productivity. This is a must-read for not only budding entrepreneurs, but anyone ready to kick fear to the curb once and for all! (Qat Wanders – International multiple best-selling author)

This wonderful book overflows with kindness, deep insight into our spirituality, and wisdom…..you think yourself in the company of a great thinker, a seer, who sits at your table to grace you with his knowledge and wisdom. The words are so kind and full of love, the manner so unassuming and loving that I felt what I rarely feel: peace…..I recommend this read with all my heart. (International multiple best selling author – A.G. Mogan)

How The Mystic Entrepreneur (Or Anybody Else) May Escape The Deadly Grip of Fear examines the fear that holds people back in life from its physical, psychological, spiritual, and social perspectives. It then provides a wide array of approaches, techniques, and understandings proven to provide escape allowing anyone to finally go ahead and do something glorious with their life!

Warning: you can use the information in this book to actually change your life. But, don’t worry (that wouldn’t do for this book.) Even though change can be scary, lots of folks say they feel wonderful about accomplishing things they never dreamed they could. Why not “give it a go” and see what glorious things you can do when you give fear “the slip?”

Warning: This book is highly opinionated regarding science, matters of faith, philosophy, social convention and belief, and just about everything else. But don’t worry – it aims to accept and value you just as you are and for who you are with no regard for agreement on any issue. If, though, you are unable to learn from and value ideas “from different places,” well, the author just respects you enough to warn you so you don’t waste any of your life’s precious hours combing through thoughts that don’t speak to you. He really does value and believe in you. He would also get a huge “kick” in thinking that some thought or idea from the book served you in your life’s journey and all the adventures it affords.

Free Bonuses: The book comes with a powerful fear busting hypnotic audio meditation and a fear busting progress chart inspired by the potent principles of cognitive behavioral therapy.

AUTHOR BIO

Since his wife left (she probably was right about him having too many books) Gordon has fared the best he could, knocking around the old house, teaching a course on therapeutic trance for professionals, tending to some growing things (raspberry bushes, tomato plants, valerian, an apple tree, etc.) and staring at the computer screen waiting for literary inspiration from one of his various muses. Principle among them is his calico cat “Kara” with whom he is collaborating to develop a web-cast “The Holistic Growth Club For Entrepreneurs.” Kara is the namesake of Gordon’s childhood friend. To this day, some people insist she was “imaginary.” Without Kara – the sole feminine principle around – chaos and testosterone would undoubtably run amuck.

He’s worn a number of “hats” including those of a pastor, college professor, psychotherapist, and Detroit City (off of Cass Avenue) security agent. His favorite “hat” is his friendship with a few close personal and lots of wonderful Facebook friends. If you see him hiking, reading, learning about herbs and natural healing, or experimenting in the kitchen, he’ll probably have a far away look on his face as he loves going into trance. His grade school teachers chided him for being a “day dreamer” so he decided to do it for a living and get paid teaching others how to do it.

And now a word from Kara: “Gordon may be an acquired taste but he feeds me, lets me out during the day, and pets me often. He spends lots of time writing at the computer but I don’t mind. I give him many of “his” ideas and he includes them frequently. You can see why I’ve decided to keep him. Give the guy a chance – I think he’s got some great stuff to say….and please…for your own sake… don’t you dare think I’m kidding about this or making it up!”

THIS IS LOVE; ACCORDING TO HARRY AND MEGHAN. Is it the same for all of us?


 

1 John 4:12 Love explainedLove and cherish according to God’s holy law. What does this mean?

#royalwedding- Congratulations to the newlyweds! 

Thank you to Reverend Michael Curry for his wonderful sermon.

Love and cherish according to God’s Holy Law

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, (now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex) promised to love and cherish each other according to God’s holy law. What does this mean?

Did Harry and Meghan really say that?

Did Harry and Meghan really make this promise? Let’s have a look.

Prince Harry: I Harry, take you, Meghan, to be my wife, to have and to hold from, this day forward; for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part; according to God’s holy law. In the presence of God, I make this vow.

Meghan Markle: I Meghan, take you, Harry, to be my husband, to have and to hold, from this day forward; for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part; according to God’s holy law. In the presence of God, I make this vow.

Meghan and Harry promised to love and to cherish according to God’s holy law and not only that, but they also called God as their witness.

Meghan and Harry took time to adjust their vows the way they liked. How do we know this? We know this because when we compare the wedding transcript of Prince William and Kate to that of Prince Harry and Meghan we can see that the vows and wedding service aren’t the same but, as one would expect, have been individualised.

We know that the word ‘obey’ was taken out of the vows. Just as with Princess Diana’s wedding and just as with William and Kate’s wedding. All three of these royal ladies decided to equally love and cherish without the word ‘obey.’ What Meghan and Harry decided to do however is,

to love and to cherish,
till death us do part;
according to God’s holy law.

What does it mean to love and cherish according to God’s Holy Law?

Reverend Michael Curry quoted from Scriptures Deuteronomy and Leviticus as well as from Jesus during his passionate sermon,

you shall love the Lord your God, with all your heart,
all your soul, all your mind and all your strength.
This is the first and great commandment.
And the second is like it:
love your neighbour as yourself.

Jesus quoting from the Prophets and summing up the commandments

Reverend Michael Curry went on to explain that,

On these two, love of God and love of neighbour,
hang all the law. All the prophets. Everything that Moses wrote. Everything in the holy prophets, everything in the Scriptures. Everything that God has been trying to tell the world:
Love God. Love your neighbours.

Reverend Michael Curry then said, There’s power in love to show us the way to live.

The choir sang about it during the wedding ceremony as follows,

MOTET
If ye love me,
keep my commandments,
and I will pray the Father,
and he shall give you another comforter,
that he may ‘bide with you forever,
e’en the spirit of truth.
If ye love me, by Thomas Tallis (1505-85)

SQ this is love set SEE 24 72

To show that our love is genuine, we love and cherish according to the holy law and keep the commandments. Which commandments?
The Ten which you can read about here. The Ten Commandments (holy law) explain how to love God and how to love your neighbours,

music courtesy Art of Noise – Moments in Love

God spoke, and these were his words:

I am the LORD your God who brought you out of Egypt, where you were slaves.

I

Worship no god but me.

 II

“Do not make for yourselves images of anything in heaven or on earth or in the water under the earth.  Do not bow down to any idol or worship it, because I am the LORD your God and I tolerate no rivals. I bring punishment on those who hate me and on their descendants down to the third and fourth generation. But I show my love to thousands of generations+ of those who love me and obey my laws.

 III

“Do not use my name for evil purposes, for I, the LORD your God, will punish anyone who misuses my name.

 IV

“Observe the Sabbath and keep it holy.  You have six days in which to do your work, but the seventh day is a day of rest dedicated to me. On that day no one is to work—neither you, your children, your slaves, your animals, nor the foreigners who live in your country.  In six days I, the LORD, made the earth, the sky, the seas, and everything in them, but on the seventh day I rested. That is why I, the LORD, blessed the Sabbath and made it holy.

 V

“Respect your father and your mother, so that you may live a long time in the land that I am giving you.

 VI

“Do not commit murder.

 VII

“Do not commit adultery.

 VIII

“Do not steal.

 IX

“Do not accuse anyone falsely.

 X

“Do not desire another man’s house; do not desire his wife, his slaves, his cattle, his donkeys, or anything else that he owns.”

The Ten Commandments from the Good News Translation (GNT) Exodus 20:1-23

How to love according to the holy law, how to love God and how to love your neighbours is explained in the Ten commandments.
These are the words that the Creator of  heaven and earth wrote on a slab of stone with his own finger,

And he gave to Moses, when he had finished speaking with him on Mount Sinai, the two tablets of the testimony, tablets of stone, written with the finger of God.

English Standard Version Exodus 31:17-18 

The Lord gave me the two stone tablets, written by God’s finger…

Common English Bible (CEB) Deuteronomy 9:9-11

… There’s power in love to show us the way to live… The commandments show us how to love each other by the way we live.

The Bible is all about love. Scripture tells us again and again to love one and other. Reverend Michael Curry deliberately choose those specific Scripture verses in consultation with the newlyweds to bring home the power and beauty of true lovehighlighting how the commandments tie in with this.

What is love according to the Bible?

This is love,
that we walk after his commandments.
This is the commandment, that,
as ye have heard from the beginning,
ye should walk in it.

2 John 6

Scripture tells us that love is being good to each other according to the holy law; Worship Go(o)d and not (d)evil, no idolatry/images, don’t swear nor blasphemy, rest one day a week, honour your elders, don’t kill, don’t commit adultery, don’t steal, don’t lie, don’t covet.

According to Scripture the love of God is that we keep his commandments.

This is the love of God: we keep God’s commandments.
God’s commandments are not difficult.

1 John 5:3 Common English Bible (CEB)

It is not that hard, to love according to God’s holy law. Harry and Meghan decided to do it and so can we.

And this answers the question; Is love the same for us ‘commoners’ as it is for Harry and Meghan? Yes, love is the same for all of us.
We can all love like royalty, according to God’s holy law.

And the how to is clearly explained by the Ten Commandments (holy law).

Love one and other

Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff (New Year’s Resolutions)


Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff

The end of the year is creeping closer and this is the time when we start to make our resolutions and resolve to do better next  year.

What if you wouldn’t have to resolve anything at all? What if you could just dream about what you would like to see manifest in your life and these dreams would come true?

I know that this sounds crazy and airy fairy but this is exactly what happened to me.

After a number of medical emergencies it appeared that my life was coming to an end. Laying in the emergency hospital room I contemplated futile things. So futile, that I’m embarrassed to repeat it.

After I pulled through, I decided that this simply was not good enough.

What if I were to stop sweating the small stuff?

1

Yes, it was true that I could not get up from bed for more than a few minutes at a time, but hey, the sun still came up every morning and set every night. And I was alive enough to notice this.

So what if my arms and shoulders got tired after typing for a little while? At least I could type, and my old little laptop was still holding up.

What if the noise from neighbour’s lawnmowers was so distracting that I couldn’t focus? The fancy orange earplugs from Bunnings did a great job in keeping the noise out. Combined with the Bilsom ear muffs I managed to create my own little writers retreat.

The noise, lights, heat and any movement were overwhelming to me, but I was still around and with the help of my daughters everything eventually became manageable. We found earplugs which helped minimise the noise and curtains to block out all light and movements from outside. A fan to cool the air and comfy cushions that supported my back as well as my head and arms. Bit by bit I stopped sweating the small stuff.  

Do The Best You  Can

Sure it was upsetting that I couldn’t ‘do’ much, but I decided that ‘doing the best I can,’ is good enough for me.

11

It is not only good enough for me but it really is all anyone can do. It is useless to fret and sweat about the things we cannot do (any more).

Make Every Moment Count

What each of us can do however, is make every moment count. In the past I may have been distracted when my children were talking to me and showing off their handiwork. Nowadays I make sure that I am present and in the moment when I admire their creations and listen to their adventures.

‘You won first prize at the archery competition? Wow! No, really; WOW! Let’s celebrate.’

‘You received an award at work for being the most exceptional employee? That is outstanding! I am so proud of you!’

5

From now on I make every moment count. For a lot of the time I was not capable of much other than dreaming about what I would like to see manifest in my life. I prayed and dreamed and built massive castles in the sky. Because that was all I was able to do.

DRIVEThe other day I read in Scott Allan’s book Drive Your Destiny about “research where Russian scientists conducted experiments on the training methods of four groups of athletes:

TRINING

The fourth group had the best result overall, outperforming the competition in the Olympics.”

I am living proof that the mental training works. Physical training wasn’t really on the menu. I spent my days dreaming to my heart’s content about what I would like to see manifest; and here we are 5 books later.

All that my castles in the air were lacking, was solid ground underneath them. That foundational work is now in process. I call it, reverse-engineering your life.

Give It Your Best Shot

When you’re writing down your New Year’s resolutions, don’t worry if all your ducks aren’t in a row yet, don’t sweat the small stuff; dream away, write down what your ideal life looks like and then give it your best shot. Science has your back.

I pray for God’s blessings over all my readers.

Blessings for righteousness

According to Jesus, Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

News reports often fill me with anxiety because it appears that there are so many injustices in the world. Sometimes it is possible to write a letter here and there or make a donation, but often enough the best we can do is sink to our knees, and send our heartfelt prayers for a better world up high.

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness

I pray that my readers may be filled and all the good promises coming true soon.

I’ve mourned plenty over lost health, lost friends and fortune and many other things that have gone awry in my world. Do I feel comforted now? Very much so.

I mourned when I had to leave my old town, which I loved a lot. Now I’m feeling warmly embraced by my current new town. Praise the Lord!

How to Live Your Best Life Possible?


Also read, “Mimi’s Eulogy-to-be Legacy…”

How To Live Your Best Life Possible?

HERE IS A TEMPLATE FOR FIGURING IT ALL OUT

To be honest I never gave this too much thought. Too busy raising kids, managing clinics, and pleasing hubby. If I found a spare moment I used to fall asleep on the spot. I never thought about a good life or a better life, I was just living my life as it was.
Till it all fell into a big heap. And I thought that this was the END.

When I worked in our clinics I used to say that I would need, “A long time to recover from this,” It’s been nearly two decades of recovery. Mind your words;

TASTE YOUR WORDS

Because these words may come back to haunt you.

9

Sure I felt this way. But I also could have said something to the effect of, “It’s nice to know that all this hard work is paying off and I’m looking forward to many holidays and relaxation in the future.”

Alas, I didn’t and have been convalescing for a long time now. I’m grateful for the opportunity this has given me to share some of my story and graphics.
So here goes.

How to live your best life possible?

Think about how you would like to be remembered and then set out to create this.

After my life fell into a big heap I had to start from scratch.

There was a lovely lesson in this.
You know how people feel lost and they set out about finding themselves? Why bother? Waste of time. How about creating a new you? Now that’s much more fun!

2

With the help of My Friends Above I’ve been rebuild pretty much. The Same vintage but completely remodeled. I like it.
In the process, I discovered that our story creates a legacy and that goes for all of us. Young and old, small and tall, we all have a story to tell.

SLIDESHOW YOUR STORY IS YOUR LEGACY

Your story creates a legacy. What would you like it to be?

How to make your story the best it can be?

There’s a good reason why we would like our story to be the best it can be. All of us will live forever.

4

Regardless if we believe in an afterlife or not, we’ll live forever in the hearts of those who knew us.

SLIDESHOW YOUR STORY IS YOUR LEGACY

Following are three simple steps to help you make your story the best it can be.

Step One is to create your own eulogy which will help you become aware of how you would like to be remembered at the end of your life.

Step Two is to remember what you were good at when you were at pre-school and what you enjoyed doing.

Step Three is to take the very first step towards reaching your goal.
I can help with that by providing you with Power Word Cards which you can download and use as screensavers. This link will take you to Popcorn for the Soul Power Word Cards with words and expressions to keep you on track.

STEP ONE

Write your own eulogy. Here’s a free template to get you going. Write your eulogy to-be and keep tinkering with it till you get happy. Then start living up to it.

HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE

How do you live up to your eulogy to-be? First, you write down how you would like to be remembered and then you figure out how to go about this. Lots of people tell me that they don’t know what it is that they are supposed to be doing with their life. It is easy to figure out if you follow the Three Steps as outlined here.

STEP TWO

Remember when you were at pre-school? What did you like and what were you good at?

11

This is obviously different for all of us. I LOVED writing and decorating my writing even before I started kindy.  Now I’m an author.
One of my daughters LOVED spending time with animals and now she works with horses and coaches disabled people how to ride.
My other daughter from a very young age LOVED music and volunteered for many years at a local radio station presenting her own breakfast show.

Most of us showed some aptitude at a very young age for a particular ‘something.’ What was this for you before the world got hold of you and you forgot?
Remember that ease and that joy? Own it and re-create it!

Step Three

What is your unique task in this life?

15.png

I have three clues for you.

Clue One

Your unique task is likely to be right in front of you

Clue Two

It is likely something that challenges you.

Clue Three

It is probably something that only you can do.

In my case, I am the only mother of my children and the only Godmother to my Godson. I have unique insights and abilities that only I can bring to the table. I was uniquely placed in this position as the only person in the whole wide world.
Is this challenging me? Hell yeah! I give it my best shot… most of the time.

18

Below I’ll give you a couple of examples of people I admire for performing the task they were given to perfection.

The doorman at David Jones.

Many years ago there was a doorman at the department store David Jones. I recall times that this frazzled mum would juggle kids and parcels, and this wonderful doorman would open the door wide for me and my children with a genuine smile and a few nice words.

It is now decades later and I remember this man with much fondness. He made my life a little easier at the time. His smile and kind words were genuine. How is this even possible? To open the door, like thousands of times a day and then greet and make each and every person that came through this door, feel welcomed and special.

This is the task that was uniquely given to this doorman and he did his job so well that I remember him decades later. Thank you, Doorman, from David Jones, I remember you.

Michael Hoskin and Turia Pitt

If you don’t live in Australia you may not have heard of Michael Hoskin and Turia Pitt. They are two of our heroes.

Turia got severely burned during a bushfire at an ultra marathon in 2011.  She never gave up. Nor did her boyfriend Michael. He had been uniquely placed in a position as her boyfriend and rose to the task he had been given as her boyfriend and helper. Neither one of them bailed. It would be nice to think that this is normal but we all know that this is not the case. Many people bail when the going gets tough. It was extraordinarily tough for these two young people and both of them rose to the task. As she has struggled to regain her health and return to a normal life, Michael has supported her through thick and thin.
I take my hat off to you both.

Where in your life were you given a task uniquely designed for you? Are you giving it your best shot?

One step at a time

I’ve just given you three easy-peasy steps to follow for living the best life possible for anyone, anywhere, anytime.

These steps work for bank managers, teachers, mums and dads, school-aged kids, mature students, sports people, entrepreneurs, health professionals and their patients, counselors, and coaches. Yes, they even work for retirees.
My health scares happened to me later in life and I still managed to turn things around for the better by going through these three steps.

How to go about turning your life around? One step at a time.

Next post I’ll share some Power Word Cards with you that you can use as screensavers to keep you going in the right direction.

Hearing His Voice: Meeting Jesus in the Garden of Promise


Hearing His Voice: Meeting Jesus in the Garden of Promise

by Meredith Swift  

DESCRIPTION

Do you feel lost and isolated, as though you don’t matter?

Do you feel tired and stressed, in need of replenishment and refreshment?
Do you want to find out more about the One who loves you more deeply, and knows you more thoroughly, than you could ever imagine?
HEARING HIS VOICEDo you want to find out practical ways to grow your faith and walk more closely with Jesus?
Then this book is for you!

Written during recovery

Meredith wrote this book during recovery from an extremely challenging time in her life – having gone through a divorce, resignation from her long term teaching job and relocation to a different city to access better services for her autistic daughter. Her daughter was also very unwell at this time, becoming bedridden by a mystery illness. All of this had left Meredith feeling exhausted, fearful, alone and very isolated.

Guidance of Scripture

Meredith knew she needed to strengthen her fragile spirit and overcome the fear of this time. She sought the guidance of Scripture and the assistance of the Lord Jesus Christ, knowing that only He could bring comfort and healing at the deep levels required. Meredith knew that her relationship with her Creator meant He was available 24/7 and so she started to schedule regular time where she communicated with Him.

The Garden of Promise

Covered with prayer and Scripture, Meredith visualised meeting Jesus in a beautiful garden that she came to know as the Garden of Promise – so named for the promises of goodness and grace found liberally throughout the Scriptures.
This book is the result of these communications – an unforgettable and inspiring journey of encouragement and healing, where Jesus spoke new life into Meredith’s being. Her feelings of isolation lifted and she felt herself soothed, replenished and deeply loved by spending this time with the Lord Jesus Christ.
You, too, are invited to go on this journey through the pages of this book as you hear His voice and meet Jesus in the Garden of Promise.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Meredith Swift was born and raised in rural Victoria, Australia, the fourth of five children. She has travelled and lived in many different places and now resides in sunny Townsville, North Queensland, Australia.

Meredith accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Saviour in 2010 and began establishing a close personal relationship with Him. In 2016, she wrote “Hearing His Voice – Meeting Jesus in the Garden of Promise” during a difficult and challenging season of her life, which included a divorce, resignation from her teaching job, relocation to a larger city and the mystery illness of her daughter who was bedridden for three months. Meredith leaned in especially closely to Jesus and communicated regularly with Him during this time. This book is the result of these communications.

Meredith has two daughters, three stepdaughters, a golden retriever and two cats. She enjoys participating in the life of her church, walking, travelling, reading and cooking.

‘LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE’ by writing your own eulogy.


Also read, ‘How To Live Your Best Life Possible.’ 

‘LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE’ by writing your own eulogy.

by Mimi Emmanuel

When you get a kick up the bum from your Guardian Angel...

This is an easy quick one-hour-read which is likely to change your life for the better even if you only read the book.

‘LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE’ by writing your own eulogy.

Includes sample eulogy to-be, templates and reverse-engineer how to’s.

By the word of The Lord were the Heavens made

By The Breath of His Mouth

By the word of the Lord were the heavens made;
and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.

So God created man
in his own image,

in the image of God
created he him;

male and female created he them.

God created the heavens and the earth by the breath of His mouth and we were made in His image.

What are you speaking out over your life today?

You can download POPCORN FOR THE SOUL ONE from here.

thoughts become words

All of us live forever

Mimi believes in living forever, but even if you don’t believe in an afterlife, you will still leave an imprint and live forever in the hearts of your loved ones.

Religion does not have to come into it. As Tony Judt puts it so eloquently, we’re all responsible for the impact we have on the people around us.

The following is quoted from Tony Judt, historian, (02/91/1948-06/08/2010).

Just months before the historian Tony Judt died of ALS in 2010, he gave an interview to Terry Gross on NPR’s Fresh Air. When she asked him about his spiritual beliefs, he replied as follows.


I don’t believe in an afterlife. I don’t believe in a single or multiple godhead. I respect people who do, but I don’t believe it myself. But there’s a big “but” which enters in here: I am much more conscious than I ever was, for obvious reasons, of what it will mean to people left behind once I’m dead.

It won’t mean anything for me, but it will mean a lot to them, and it’s important for them, by which I mean my children or my wife or my close friends, that some spirit of me is, in a positive way, present in their lives, in their heads, in their imaginings, and so on.

In one curious way I’ve come to believe in the afterlife as a place where I still have moral responsibilities, just as I do in this life, except that I can only exercise them before I get there. Once I get there, it’ll be too late.

So no god, no organized religion, but a developing sense that there’s something bigger than the world we live in, including after we die, and that we have responsibilities in that world.

Few, if any, of our Facebook or Twitter friends will be at our death bed, or care either way.

How will we be remembered by our close friends and family members? How did we or do we impact their lives on a daily basis?

THOSE WE LOVE NEVER GO AWAYWhat unique task were we given and how did we live up to this?

I highly recommend downloading the template included in the book and following the instructions for guaranteed results.

DESCRIPTION

Why on earth would anyone ever want to write their own eulogy-to-be? 

Well, sometimes life just sucks, and then consequently your eulogy would suck too. COVER EULOGY TO BE 5x8-Book cover 3D thick MASTER 200917Double whammy.

The word eulogy-to-be is a concession we had to make because certain family members became quite traumatised when the subject of writing a eulogy popped up.

If a eulogy is a celebration of life then a eulogy-to-be is a write-up for the purpose of getting perspective on life so that we can adjust course if necessary, and celebrate life every single day, and not miss out on our own final party.

Mimi’s Guardian Angel did a fine job writing her eulogy-to-be and keep her on track. As in, “Hey there, is this how you would like to be remembered?”

Live Your Best Life By Writing Your Own Eulogy is a sample of how to write your own eulogy and includes a template with directions for anyone at any stage in their life to create a life filled with joy.

Is it possible to design a path to Joy and heal your Life?

How do we get the life we want? Sometimes we need a wake-up call to understand that “Our life does not just ‘happen,’ but whether we know it or not, it is carefully designed by us as quoted from Dr Covey’s bestseller.

Your Story creates a legacy; make it the best it can be!

Yes, you can continue drifting through life and allow things to ‘happen to you.’ Or you can grab hold of it and ‘make it behave!’

There is something miraculous about sharing your dreams and aspirations with the universe; Angels listen in…

A MUST TO HAVE IN EVERYONE’S SPECIAL COLLECTION OF BOOKS!

on September 5, 2017
I found sweetness, beauty, hope, joy and love on every page of this short and happy book.
I paused, reflected and thought about my life as I live it on a daily basis and get to ask myself what my eulogy would be.
This is one of those special books that anyone should have.

Delightful, Captivating, Inspiring

on September 6, 2017
A delightful read that is light yet profound. It’s easy to read and surprisingly fun especially when considering the topic. So well done! I could feel the lift in Mimi’s step as she lived her life on purpose. I’ve definitely been inspired by this book and the novel idea of writing my own eulogy to be!

An inspiring read with a practical application

on September 4, 2017
If you’ve wondered what you’re meant to be doing with your life, take stock and read this! What a great idea for getting your life back on track …. how to reverse engineer your life. Love it!

This delightful read is the perfect prescription for ‘getting it right – now.’

on September 5, 2017
Thank God above for fresh lingerie and ‘Bonus Moments!’ This delightful read is the perfect prescription for ‘getting it right – now.’ Don’t wait until later to figure out what your very best life, joy and happiness are meant to be. Mimi offers a fantastic template to help you think about what really matters, here and now. My only regret is the author lives on the other side of the world and isn’t available to jaunt around with. Because if she was I’d be at her house every day soaking up her enthusiasm. I look forward to more from Ms. Emmanuel.

Tender Mercies for Tough Moments: A 31 Day Journey into the Blessings of God


Tender Mercies for Tough Moments: A 31 Day Journey into the Blessings of God

by Teresa E Nelson

DESCRIPTION

Life is Hard.

Do you find yourself wishing for some blessings, for a change, instead of living with TENDER MERCIESendless problems and pain?

Do you need help navigating the nitty-gritty, hard to handle challenges of real-life?

Do you often wish your relationship with God and people was better than it is now?

This candid and solution-based book will provide you with a month’s worth of practical spiritual blessings, truths straight from the Bible, and down-to-earth prayers to bring the life-changes you so earnestly desire.

Illnesses, accidents, natural disasters, grief, relationships gone bad, job loss, family problems, and so much more can pick up a life and set it down in a swirling mess.

When the merry-go-round of mad living comes to a stop, or the fun has abruptly ended, people wrestle with feelings of regret, disappointment, anger and shame. Yet, they still possess a desperate yearning for God. Without a guide, a thriving, joyful experience of God can be difficult to discover and own.

A Handbook of Hope

“Tender Mercies for Tough Moments: A 31 Day Journey into the Blessings of God” will walk you right into the arms of God. It will also:

    • Encourage and empower your faith with 31 bold and strength-giving graces of God.
    • Provide the gateway for you to know and relate to God with a deeply personal and rewarding connection.
    • Offer answers to settle your worries, comfort your hurts, and conquer your battles by drawing you to the One who knows you best and loves you most.
  • Ask guiding questions to help you find your way to refreshment, gratitude, joy, success, self-control and
    friendships.

If you immerse yourself in these lessons, you will discover you have the courage and power to face what is place before you no matter what it is. In only a few minutes a day, you will be able to see your life changed – blessed, that is.

What’s stopping you from experiencing the full-fledged blessings of God , and living your life with genuine faith, bold truth and soul-satisfying joy?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Growing up as an adopted farm girl, Teresa has spent countless hours on a tractor dreaming up stories, and paying close attention to the way of people, birds, animals, clouds and God. Because her mother showed her the way of compassion with all things lost, little or weak, Teresa knew one day she would do more than only dream.

No stranger herself to poverty and cancer, Teresa led her community in a faith based mission to help people with various needs, and also founded a support outreach for people living with the uncertainty and struggles of cancer. In 2003, Teresa received the Nonprofit of the Year Award for leading a regional caregiving organization to high service impact.

Today, Teresa works as a teacher and a preacher, and sometimes as an auctioneer, inspirational speaker and actor. She teaches incarcerated adults academics, life skills and spiritual truths. This fits perfectly with her pastoral role in a small rural congregation where God and tractors are the main topics.

These days, the little people in her life are learning from her to create stories, dream their own dreams, to be compassionate and look for the wonder in all things.

Open Doors Open Hearts: Change Lives With Generosity, Love, and Compassion


Open Doors Open Hearts: Change Lives With Generosity, Love, and Compassion

by Tina Pocernich

BOOK DESCRIPTION
Have you ever been caught between a rock and a hard place, just needing a helping hand from someone to get you through? Have you needed a place to stay, even if only for a short period of time? Have you experienced financial difficulty and wished for a few months with no rent payments due, so you could get back on your feet again?

5115A-4Ui1LIn everyone’s life they experience times of need. At times throughout the life of author, Tina Pocernich, she has needed to rely on friends primarily within her church family to help her through events like her mother’s battle with cancer, and her escape from an unhealthy relationship. This led her to wonder “how do people pay it forward to those who are at their lowest, or even those who need just a little help?” Inspired by the instances she’d experienced, as well as the many examples she’d read throughout her Bible, she chose to reach out and touch the lives of those around her.

This is Tina’s story, and the story of those who have chosen to open their hearts and their homes. Join her in her journey from need to blessing others. Maybe you, too will be inspired to open your heart and home.

 

REVIEW

By Amazon Customer on August 24, 2017
Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading this book as it helped me open my heart and doors even more. Sometimes we may think that we’re doing enough but we can always do this little extra. Just recently we’ve opened our doors to travelers and the joy of sharing is very much mutual. I encourage anyone to read Tina’s book and find ways to share in life and be blessed by it.
AUTHOR BIO
I am Tina Pocernich, and I live in Wisconsin. I’ve been married nearly 25 years and am the mother and stepmother to five adult children: three boys and two girls, and eight grandchildren. I work full-time for a technical college, and recently, I’ve become an author. My passions are transparency, integrity, and truth.

In January 2017, I participated in a small group of women studying the book Dream It, Pin It, Live It by Terri Savelle Foy. For the first time in my life, I focused on looking at, and establishing personal goals and a vision board for a 12-18 month period. One of those goals was to write a book. When my goals were in front of me, I believe I was more aware of opportunities before me. In January, I also noticed an ad on my Facebook feed regarding Chandler Bolt’s Self-Publishing School. I downloaded and read two of his books, Published and Book Launch. Then I joined Chandler’s online Self-Publishing School Mastermind Community to gain even more knowledge and support throughout the book writing process. I have no idea how many times I may have seen that information in my feed previously, but I know I wouldn’t have noticed it if I hadn’t set a goal to write a book.

In July of 2017, I completed my book, Open Doors Open Hearts. God has allowed me to experience various things in life, and I believe it gives me purpose to share my possessions and experiences with others.

As a logical and direct person, I present my thoughts in a very practical way, without a lot of flowery language. My style is simple, but straight from the heart.

My hope is that you’ll enjoy my writing and find nuggets of truth you can implement in your own life.

The Courage To Dance Again: Finding Purpose In Your Pain


BOOK LAUNCH NEW BOOK RELEASE

The Courage To Dance Again: Finding Purpose In Your Pain

BOOK DESCRIPTION

The Courage to Dance follows the story of one woman’s search for meaning and quest for a better life. In her journey toward success, Ariston C.M. struggles through the trials and tribulations of child poverty, abuse, domestic violence, and her own self-doubt.

As an adult, she is left at the mercy of two unhappy marriages, riddled with mental abuse and infidelity.

COURAGEIn her greatest moment of despair, she has thoughts of suicide and even wanting her own children to die to avoid pain.

Her escape from these marriages comes as a relief, but in her journey toward healing she is also met with a realization: Survival is not the aim anymore. She must think bigger and realize her own potential.

Through her renewed faith in God she begins on a path of self-actualization, no longer deferring her own dreams or happiness. As she pursues her education, she begins to understand that it does not matter where she comes from or where she has been. She must see herself as her God does, born anew and ready to build a better future.

Inside this book, Ariston C.M. discusses her life and her arduous journey toward salvation. She shines light on what it is to emerge from ultimate darkness and offers strategies to empower women from all challenging walks of life. Through her own lived experiences, she shows that believing in God and oneself are not mutually exclusive but both necessary parts of a life built on redemption.

This book contains poetic expressions throughout it and begins a meaningful dialogue on what it is to overcome just about anything and find life’s purpose as a woman of faith. Her story is a testament to the power and resilience of the human condition.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

ARISTON C.M. was born in Ohio. Today she is a single mother of five, living in Ohio. She is an entrepreneur. She holds multiple degrees in theology and child development.

Her challenges as a child ultimately inspired her to start a non-profit organization that currently addresses the needs of at-risk youth and those with developmental disabilities.

In her free time she writes poetry and participates in speaking engagements that empower women in all sectors of life, but with particular dedication to survivors like herself.

Through telling her story she hopes to shatter the barriers all women face, from society and themselves.

Ariston is a fun, loving person who is very empathetic. She likes to encourage others to reach their full potential.

Her favorite saying is “You can’t go over or around it, but you must go through it”.

Included are over 130 prayers, organized by topic for a quick search depending upon your need. For example; Gratitude, Forgiveness, Abundance, Joy, Motivation, Surrender, Transformation, Highest Purpose, Passionate Living, etc., as well as a bonus section for blessing your business.

In language that’s easy to understand, Janine briefly addresses the science behind essential oils, explains the importance of absolute purity, and teaches you what to look for when researching essential oils.

Both the seasoned “oiler” and the “newbie” will find this book educational and highly useful, with just enough of the basics and usage guidelines to make sure you have the knowledge you need to use your pure oils safely.

Reciting these prayers while using pure essential oils, you can expect to experience more of the following during your prayer time:

•A More Peaceful Attitude
•A Quieter Mind
•More Focused Attention
•Feeling More In Touch With Nature
•Feeling More Connected to God
•A Raise in Your Frequency
•An Enhanced Prayer Experience

We know that prayer is effective in itself, and we know that pure essential oils are effective. The combination of the two is synergistic and is indeed very powerful: energetically, spiritually, physically, and emotionally.

Try it and experience “Praying in the Power Zone” for yourself!

REVIEW

PRAYERS

AUTHOR BIO

It has been said that Janine Logue Wooten “packs more living into one lifetime than anyone.”

Like most creatives she was neither recognized or encouraged early on, and was in fact discouraged from trying anything unconventional. She married and started her family at the young age of 21. Janine always truly loved being a Mommy – and now she’s been promoted to Grammy! But the kids grew, as kids do, and eventually became independent adults, and she found herself feeling like something was missing, career wise.

She tried her hand at a few things: owning a jewelry business, making jewelry, tutoring Math, importing Turkish carpets, selling Real Estate, selling Diamonds, selling Roofing, and being a superintendent for a construction firm… Seriously. Sometimes overlapping. Clearly tons of energy, drive and motivation – but you might notice a bit of a lack of focus.

Janine loves to learn, with the list of subjects being just as broad and varied as the work history. Put it in front of her, and she will want to know everything there is to know about it, and then dive into it, and do it to the best of her ability.

(Perhaps certain personality types come to mind, such as ADD, ADHD, OCD, and she now knows, serious dyslexia! Although, back in the day, these things were not known. She just did her best, and tried to sit still and conform. Her mom to this day says Janine “can’t sit still”!)

She can now see how the labyrinth of her life has been perfectly leading her to this place all along! Everything along the way has been part of the grand picture, a small but crucial piece of the puzzle that makes up a magnificent and unique story! A beautiful tapestry of a life fully lived!

Her favorite things to do are painting, writing, teaching, helping others learn and grow, reading, traveling, walking on the beach, and “good food” outings with great friends!

She is finally in her “right place”, and loving the work she is doing. Her efforts are finally all tied together with a clear focus: helping people find and live their own best lives – through her art, her writing and teaching about clean living.

Janine’s earnest prayer is that many people will be blessed by her work. She gives God all the credit and all the Glory for designing such a perfect plan, and overseeing the job even when she was slacking or not understanding where He was taking her.

Blessings, Love and Light!

My Angel in Heaven: A Mother’s Journey through Death and Grief to Comfort and Hope


NEW BOOK LAUNCH

My Angel in Heaven: A Mother’s Journey through Death and Grief to Comfort and Hope

written by Rebecca Vijay

BOOK DESCRIPTION

The Book helps bring Comfort to those who have lost their loved ones

The book takes the reader from grief to comfort and peace to hope and joy
My Angel in Heaven is a short narration that travels very deep into one’s journey of faith REBECCAand how that faith helps in understanding and reconciling with the larger plan of the Almighty. The personal sharing resonates everybody’s ability to remain connected with even departed souls, through unwavering faith and solid hope.

The book takes the reader along on the author’s journey of losing her first-born twin son on the third day. Through the author’s personal experience, she attempts to help the reader find comfort and peace in God and to be joyful in the hope that we will see our loved ones in heaven soon.
The book showcases God’s goodness and love for us. It is grounded and anchored in faith and encourages those bereaved to reach out and express their feelings about their loss, grief, and loneliness.

Bring hope to those who are grieving

God wants to heal the ones who are hurting and He is our Comfort and our strength. The author shares her personal testimony to comfort and encourage others. The book is not only for parents but for anyone who has lost their loved ones.

Give a voice to those who are grieving

By sharing her personal experience, the author attempts to give a voice and a platform to those who have lost their loved ones but are not able to voice out their grief and sorrow.

Bring comfort to those who mourn

Through the various scripture references, the book attempts to minister healing to those who are experiencing infant loss or the loss of a loved one.

Discusses the Biblical stages of grief and handling loss

The book talks about the eight Biblical stages of hurting and of hope and growth, instead of focusing on the five stages of grief.

Hey Mum, I love you. Happy Mother’s Day!


Happy Mother’s day

I keep thinking, “I’ll phone Mum and tell her,’ and then I don’t.

1807704

It is always the same around this time of the year, my Mum keeps popping into my head. My Mum who wrote notes for school so that I could take days off whenever I wanted to. I had a whole stack of these, written in advance. These notes got me into trouble and not for what you may think.

My bestie at primary, her name was Leony. Well, Leony’s Mum didn’t write absentee notices in advance. She never wrote these at all. So when Leony fancied a day off from school I said, “no worries, I know how we can arrange that.” It took me no time at all to copy my Mum’s note, replace my name with my friend’s name and hand this notice to my friend who handed it to the principal. I felt proud of my handiwork. I even forged my Mum’s handwriting so that the principal would read ‘adult’ and not ‘children’s’ writing.

The next day I was called to the principal’s office. How on earth did he know that it was me who wrote the note for my friend Leony? He unsuccessfully tried to hide his grin. He thought it was funny. I didn’t think it so funny, having to write down THREE HUNDRED TIMES that I was not to write absentee notes for my friends!

Thank you Mum!

Thank you Mum for recognising that children also need time out every now and then.

1617363

My Mum baked the best cakes, gave the best hugs, loved the most perfect.

Why do I keep thinking that I need to phone Mum?

Mother’s day has always been in May, as was my Mum’s birthday. Yes, her eightieth birthday was May 22. Mum had her eighty first, her very last birthday in hospital. I didn’t visit her. Was her funeral in May also? I cannot remember. I did not go. I wanted to go but was not able to. I was recovering from an inoperable ruptured appendix. Travel was out of the question.

For decades and decades I would phone my Mum daily and visit her on her birthday and Mother’s day and sent her cards and presents. And then, one day, it stopped. I cannot remember the exact day. It’s a bit hazy and I like to keep it that way.  Because every now and then I want to phone my Mum and say,

I LOVE YOU MUM .

Mum, I love you.

“Hey Mum, do you know that I love you. You’re best Mum in the whole wide world. No one makes cakes like you do, nor macaroni nor tomato soup. Your salads are out of this world and your pancakes deserve awards. I love you Mum for your care and your never ending love and your kindness and for always being there for me. I thank you for all the Jesus’ stories and parables. Whipped cream is still my favourite Mum. Thank you for bringing me up to appreciate the good things in life.

Hey Mum, are you there? Mum? Mum?”

The thought stops before it completes itself. Yes, Mum is there. She’s in my heart. She’ll live on forever in my thoughts and life. She lives on in me and my children. In my world my Mum lives forever.

THANK YOU MUM
I love you Mum. Thank you Mum. Happy Mother’s day, Mum.

Eat Less and Move More: My Journey shows you how you can change your lifestyle without spending long hours in the gym and without starving yourself while enjoying cheat meals. On May 2, 2011, I received my wake up call. I was 336 pounds, had borderline type 2 diabetes, and was recently recovered from both bronchitis and pneumonia. My bad eating habits and lifestyle choices were making me ill, but I was too wrapped up in what I was doing to spot the signs let alone to do anything about it. That day I found myself in the doctor’s office and was told that I might not be around in 5-10 years if I didn’t change my lifestyle. That was my wake-up call. Luckily I got a second chance. That day I realized that life is short and precious and I made a decision that I was going to do things differently.

UPDATE RE THE HOLY GRAIL OF BOOK PUBLISHING

Why two titles?

The book is listed as The Holy Grail of Book Publishing as a kindle and as The Holy Grail of Book Launching as a softcover. Why?

I blame it on Debbie. She came to visit and mucked up our internet, power and phone lines for nearly a week. As such the cover change-over got stuck in cyber space. In addition Create Space took nine days to reduce the price on the softcover and ever since I’ve been  v e r y  reluctant to make any changes. Eventually I may synchronise the covers but so far the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Readers actually like the fact that the kindle has a different cover from the paper copy.

HGBL BEST BOOK

Surviving Grief and Loss


Book launch

Surviving Grief and Loss: How the Broken-hearted Finds Comfort, Hope and Meaning in Jesus Christ

written by Shefflorn Ballantyne

BOOK DESCRIPTION

One of the loneliest times of a person’s life is when faced with grief and loss. Hope and comfort seem far from SURVIVING GRIEFgrasp and the questions emerge. Where can I find meaning in life? Will I survive this feeling of loss? How can I move on?

SURVIVING GRIEF AND LOSS is written by an author who himself faced these questions through personal loss.

This book offers you a new perspective on grief and provides answers to the quest for meaning and purpose at a time of loss. His personal experience in surviving grief from the loss of his father at age 10 and the aid of the Holy Scriptures in handling tragic losses have equipped him to provide counsels to help anyone faced with this common reality.

Rooted in the principles of Holy Scriptures, SURVIVING GRIEF AND LOSS is a tool for all who need a clear vision beyond their grief.

REVIEW

Shefflorn recalls the times when he lost both his parents and other family members at a young age. He describes the various stages of grief and how he dealt with each of these stages. As we read his book, our understanding of death and the stages of grief grow because Shefflorn talks from experience and uses Scripture Verses to make sense of death and dying.
I love how the Scripture Verses provide clarity and recommend this book to anyone who is grieving the loss of a loved one.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Shefflorn Ballantyne was born in Sandy Bay, a small village in the beautiful paradise islands of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

He has been lecturing at the SVG Community College for over 8 years in the discipline of business accounting. He enjoys teaching the scriptures, spending time with family and playing his violin.

Shefflorn loves writing. At age 13 he thought of becoming a writer of mysteries, but today is dedicated to writing Christian books.

He is a Christian minister in the Thusia Seventh Day Adventist Church and wrote his first book Immortality, Death and the Hereafter in March 2016.

Happy Valentines Day John 15:13

Happy Valentine’s Day


Happy Valentines Day John 15:13

Happy Valentine’s Day to all my readers!

Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is an annual holiday celebrated on February 14. It originated as a Western Christian liturgical feast day honoring one or more early saints named Valentinus, and is recognized as a significant cultural and commercial celebration in many regions around the world

A little research on the world wide web shows me that Saint Valentine’s Day is an official feast day in the Anglican Communion, as well as in the Lutheran Church. Many parts of the Eastern Orthodox Church also celebrate Saint Valentine’s Day, albeit on July 6 and July 30, the former date in honor of the Roman presbyter Saint Valentine, and the latter date in honor of Hieromartyr Valentine, the Bishop of Interamna (modern Terni).

Wishing all my friends and readers a Happy Valentine’s Day!

I love you

24 Scripture Verses just for Parents(2)


Previous 12 Scripture Verses in the series can be viewed here at 24 Scripture Verses just for parents

You can find out about the greatest compliment given to mothers here.

24 Scripture Verses just for Parents (2)

1 John 4 tells us that perfect love has no fear. Think about how that frees us up. No need to fear, simply love wholeheartedly with boldness and confidence. God is love, if you experience fear, you’re not expressing God’s love. How wonderful to be laying aside fear, these False Expectations Appearing Real, (FEAR).

Perfect Peace

Perfect Peace Isaiah 26:2-3

This Scripture Verse helps us live in perfect peace. There is only one requirement for those who want to live in perfect peace.
How do we live in perfect peace? By trusting in The Lord. When we trust in The Lord we’ll be in constant communication with him. When we trust in The Lord, we run to Him when we find ourselves or our children in trouble. God’s Word, His love and presence give us constant peace.

There have been many times in my life where my husband was not available because of work obligations, distance and all sorts of reasons.

Whenever I am not sure how to respond to my children’s needs I call to The Lord and He answers, too easy!

Darkness and Light

Darkness and Light are alike to you Psalm 139:2

There have been periods in my life where I travelled through endless dark valleys with seemingly no light on the horizon.
You know, when one day, all of a sudden your children know everything better than you? They have more wisdom, more knowledge, more street smart, or so they think… than their parent.

One moment I am their bestie and they will love me  f o r e v e r . And the next moment I am seen to be the evil witch from hell who  n e v e r  had their best interests at heart.

What happened? It’s called ‘the teenage years.’ We all live through it, parents as well as children, and come out the other end. Don’t despair like I did in my ignorance.
These were dark periods for me because I was unprepared for the sudden change of affection. This Scripture Verse tells me that God is light and there is no darkness in Him at all.

As His child I can live up to that and not be deceived by apparent momentary darkness.

I am the light of the world:
he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness,
but shall have the light of life.

When all appears dark, look to The Lord, He is light and in Him there is no darkness at all.

In God’s Hand… the breath of all mankind

In God's hand ... the breath of mankind job 12:10

Have you ever been woken up by a reverse charge phone call like this at 11 pm at night? “Mum, I lost my purse and mobile phone and cannot find my way back to my unit.”
I have.

How about, “Mum, I don’t want to live anymore.”
I have.

Or, ‘Today is the last day you’ll hear my voice. You’ll never see my smile again.”

OK that’s enough sharing. I’ve had many hair raising calls where I literally feel my heart throbbing in my throat. People tell me that it gets easier when your children get older. Does it? When my children were toddlers I always managed to kiss their pains away and hug them tight and keep them safe.
Now they’re older and can get themselves into real trouble out in the big wide world, now what?

This is when I remember that everyone’s life is in God’s hand, not mine. Phew, that’s a load of my mind.
Amen, thank you Lord. It is not my job to keep other adults safe and alive:

In God’s hand is the soul of every living thing and the breath of all mankind.

Thank you Father!

Always Pray

Always pray, not to faint Luke 18:1-8

“But they promised Mum, they said they would give me the promotion.”
“He promised to repay the money.”
“My horse trailer was stolen right under my eyes.”
“I worked so very hard to get and keep this job, how can they cancel the contract?”

So much unfairness and what can we do to shield our children from this? Other than raise them well and make sure that they’ll do the right thing by others… not much usually.

Hold on. How about we use the tried and trusted, most effective method of all? Prayer! Always pray, not to faint. When this unjust judge wouldn’t give this lady what she was entitled to, she continued hassling and bothering this judge till he gave in.

If an unjust judge eventually delivers justice… how much more will our Heavenly Father hear us and deliver justice to His people? 

The tree is known by its fruit

The tree is known by its fruit Matthew 12:33

Either make the tree good, and his fruit good;
or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt:
for the tree is known by his fruit.

Set the right example for your children. It is as simple as that.

Submit to God

Submit to God resist the devil James 4:7

“I cannot help it Mum.”

” I keep doing the wrong thing by people and I don’t want to.”

“I don’t know what made me do this.”

Yes, you do.Your behaviour is caused by an attitude of laziness and ‘I cannot be bothered’ and ‘finding an easy way out’ and ‘this works for me.”

Don’t try to confuse me with conflicting messages. If you genuinely want to do the right thing by people and struggle to do so, I suggest that you pray over it and ask for help.

If you genuinely think that you cannot stop yourself ftom doing the wrong thing by people, you pray for a change of attitude. Go, see a therapist, read some books, follow a course, take supplements, improve your attitude with the help of The Lord, family, friends, therapists and health professionals.

All actions that involve lying, cheating, stealing, damaging other people’s property, hurting their soul, heart and spirit can easily be avoided.
How?

Submit to God and resist the devil and he will flee from you.

Thank you Father for chasing all spirits of laziness, hatred and liars out of my family. Thank you for chasing these foul spirits out of my children as well as me.

The Lord bless thee

The Lord bless you Numbers 6:23-27

Do you ask God to bless your children daily? It is a good idea.

And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,  Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them,

The Lord bless thee, and keep thee: The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace. And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel, and I will bless them.

God made me laugh

God made me laugh Genesis 21:16

The Lord blessed Sarah and Abraham with a child after she had turned 90 years old!

What is there not to laugh about? If we ever wondered if our Heavenly Father is able to grant us our request… wonder no more. Sarah received a child from the Lord when she was already a very old woman. She said that God made her laugh. Amen to that.

God made me laugh too.

No greater joy…

No greater joy ... 3 John 1:4

What is the greatest joy in life? To have children? No, it is to have our children walk in God’s Word, in The Truth.The greatest joy is to know that our children do the right thing by others and serve the Lord wherever they go with a smile on their face.

And on that note, we are to teach our children.

Teach your children

Teach your children Deuternoomy 6:4-9

Teach our children what? Teach our children God’s Word.

On a regular basis, preferably daily, we sit down and read God’s Word and sing Scripture Songs to remind us of God’s goodness and keep us on the straight and narrow.

It shows our innocence if we carefully keep all these commandments as God requires from us.

My spirit that is upon you

My spirit that is upon you Isaiah 59:20-23

The Lord made an agreement with us that, if we agree to be part of his posse, His spirit will be on our mouth (words) as well as on the mouth (words) of our children.

Thank you Father for your Spirit being with us continuously.

My daughters who loves me

Thy daughter in law which loveth thee Ruth 4:15

The story of Ruth in the Bible tells us about a lady who lived a pretty tough life. Her daughter in law stuck with her, and proved to be a life saver to her.

I LOVE these examples in the Bible of what is possible. I love the promises that are available to us when we live according to God’s directions.  Naomi suffered much but her daughter in law took care of her and proved to be better to her than seven sons.

I have my own version of this, which makes me feel very blessed indeed:
“My daughters who love me, are better to me than seven sons each.”

Amen, praise The Lord!

Supernal Grace: Live Powerfully In Timeless And Boundless Success


NEW BOOK RELEASE

Supernal Grace: Live Powerfully In Timeless And Boundless Success

by Elenah Kwaramba Kangara

BOOK DESCRIPTION

From your inner being, how do you, in God’s way, experience good success and balance in health, love and wealth?

Supernal Grace by Elenah Kwaramba KangaraHow do you stop the madness and confusion?
God says one thing about you and yet what you see and experience in your life is different.

GRACE is Supernal. It is everything beautiful and yet…

We are born into battles! We cry our way into battles!

One of the largest battles we fight in life is the tactic of the enemy that tries to keep us in two places: the past and the future.
The enemy knows he wins only if he can keep us stuck in the past licking our wounds of failures, guilt, shame, poverty, grief, rejection, fear and worry.
The enemy wins today’s battles if we are engrossed in the anxieties of tomorrow.
If you look closely at your life, chances are you’ve been fighting battles that are rooted in the past and or the future.

How do you break free from this dark hollow? Where is freedom? Can it be found?

  • God wants to reconcile your past, present and future
  • He wants to heal your identity and introduce you to your true origin
  • He wants to fill and expand your present with timeless and boundless success

In Supernal Grace, get access to the rest of God. Be planted, strong, in your true domain.
Discover your inner timeless freedom, smile and kiss from within.

With riveting compassion birthed from deeply personal struggles, tragedies and ultimate victories in life, Elenah Kangara shows the reader how to:

  • Find your true I-AM and live powerfully in and from it
  • Break free from limiting ideas, theology or doctrines that incapacitate you.
  • Discover your ultimate destiny and walk in it
  • Re-visit your life’s vision. Remodel. Redefine your priorities. Adjust your relationships, and move into the newness of life
  • Redefine your value system. Have and live your life with radiance, zest and gusto

If the reader is ready to reach deep into eternal fountains that never run dry, then SUPERNAL GRACE is the key!

REVIEW

This book starts with a story of the author cooking a delicious meal for family and guests. The guests enjoy the meal and think it is wonderful. The family notice something is missing and don’t appreciate the meal in the same way. The family is right; the cook had not added ‘the secret ingredient.’

This story is used to point out to readers the difference between reading and understanding the Gospel with and without Supernal Grace.

It is a brilliant analogy and the writing only gets better and better. If you love Scripture, add this book to your reading list!

GOD'S HOLY WORD FOR PARENTS 24 VERSES


Leave a comment

24 Scripture Verses just for parents.


PREVIOUS – I thought it was a Little Angel IV

24 Scripture Verses that help with parenting

My friend Jacob’s story

A good friend of mine passed away recently. His parents named him after the Biblical patriarch Jacob. You can find the story of Jacob the patriarch in Genesis 25 to 35.

My friend Jacob grew up in a small town in Germany. Jacob’s wife did not believe in God. Every time that I heard his wife speak about The Lord in a derogatory tone, Jacob would tell this story.

He would say, “Mimi, let me tell you about my Mum.”

“All young fellows in my town were recruited to fight in the (second world) war. None of us wanted to go but we weren’t given a choice.

My Mum said to me; “You’ll be right son, trust in The Lord.”

To be honest, I cannot remember if I always said my prayers, there was so much happening. But I trusted in The Lord.
One by one I saw my mates around me perish. It was the most awful time in my life.

Out of 23 young lads that left our village, how many do you think returned home after the war?”

I shook my head and shrugged my shoulders, didn’t dare hazard a guess.

“Just me.” He said. “Just me, I was the only one that came back home whole.”

What could I say? I said, “Wow.”

Then he would look at me and say, “You know, my Mum prayed for me every single day that I would return home safely. I was gone for three years and every single day she prayed for me.

I’m not saying that the other Mum’s didn’t pray cause I don’t know about that. But I know for sure that my Mum prayed for me, every single day. I was the only one that came back home in one piece.”

He would then nod, shake his head, nod again and mumble under his breath, “I’m just saying.”

I like Jacob’s story. The Biblical one as well as my friend’s story. Both are stories of great faith.

Patriarch Jacob hung on to his faith in situations where it would have been easy to throw in the towel.
My friend Jacob also kept his faith in situations of great adversity. First, during the war and later also during his marriage with a wife who was hostile towards His God.

I never heard him oppose his wife but he spoke about his faith often.

Jacob’s story demonstrates to me that God is good and hears prayer.

Raising children in difficult situations

Some children are easier to raise than others. But most parents despair every now and then, wondering if it will all turn out for good. Jacob’s Mum unexpectedly had to hand her teenage son over to authorities who placed him in life-threatening situations, again and again. What was she to do?  She couldn’t go with her son to protect him. So she prayed. I dare say that she did not pray every single day, but that she prayed throughout every single day and put her trust in The Lord.

Jacob’s Mum was not disappointed when she put her trust in The Lord.

I have never been disappointed either. Disappointed with my impatience, sure.
But disappointed in The Lord? Never!

Parents are people too

Parents are people too. Where did (and do) I find my strength when the children and I don’t agree on major issues such as house rules, work, health, contributions etc? Or when they insist on having it their way, when maturity versus immaturity turns ugly? Or when they go out into society and bring home devilish attitudes?

I’ve discovered that it is good practice to pray for the health and wellbeing of my children and family daily.

All throughout the Bible, we’re told that God hears prayer and responds to our prayers.

Below I list some Scripture Verses that have helped me over the years whilst raising my children. These are not just Scripture Verses to pray over my children but this is God’s Word speaking encouragement and hope to parents.

God’s Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. There are hundreds of Scripture Verses that encourage and strengthen me with whatever I do and wherever I go.

I selected some verses for parents needing encouragement. Who parents the parent?

God’s Holy Word for Parents

GOD'S HOLY WORD FOR PARENTS 24 VERSES

When your parents are not there ‘anymore’ to take care of you, the promise is that the Lord will take us up and teach us His way.

There are many Scripture Verses that are applicable for parenting and the following were specifically chosen for parents who feel challenged as they parent their children.

Godly Offspring

God's Holy Word for Parents Malachi 2:15

Pick your partner well. Pray over it.
Read Malachi 2 to understand that, The man who hates and divorces his wife, does violence to the one he should protect,” says the Lord Almighty.

So be on your guard, and do not be unfaithful.

I grew up in the flower power era. The word unfaithful did not even exist in those days.

God does not like it when people have affairs, move from one to the other and so on. He’s after Godly offspring. If you end up with not so Godly offspring you may be severely challenged whilst you’re raising your children.

For This Child I Prayed

Scripture Verses for Parents 1 Samuel 1:27-28

The Bible gives many examples of childless couples. In all the instances mentioned, after prayer, the women became pregnant. If God gives children to couples who ask for this, how much more will He help you to take care of this child? Think about it. You want a child, here it is. “You’re on your own now?” No, of course not.
Ask away because the Lord hears prayer and He will help you.

“Thank you Father, for helping me raise my child. Thank you for hearing my prayer, so that I can sleep soundly.”

Hannah’s prayer reminds me of the goodness of God and how children do not belong to us but to our Father.

You wove me in my Mother’s Womb

God's Holy Word for Parents Psalm 129:13

It is God who made us and our children. Clearly He knows me and my children better than I do myself.  Think about it… The heart, the veins, the bones, the flesh, the other organs, the hair, eyes, mouth, ears, nose and the spirit. God created all of this. He knows all about my children in a way that I cannot even imagine.
Thank you Lord!

For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well …

Children are a heritage from the Lord

God's Holy Word for Parents Psalm 127:3

As I said before, children belong to The Lord.  A heritage, made in his image.

“Father, these children that I received from you, that are made in your image, they feel like a gift indeed and my life is so much richer because of them. As I grow alongside them and am becoming more patient, kind and compassionate, can you please help me correct whatever needs correcting in myself as well as my children?”

A Good Future

God's Holy Word for Parents Jeremiah 9:11

God’s Holy Word promises us a good future.
I never have had any preconceived ideas as to what I expect my children to do in life, for a job or relationship or whatever.

Together we plan according to the talents we were given. And all throughout our lives we’ve had ample opportunities to contribute to society in a meaningful way, whilst utilising our talents and following our passions.

I trust in the Lord for a good future for both my children and myself.

… of such is the Kingdom of Heaven

Matthew 19:14 Let the little children come to me

My Mum told me all the ‘Jesus’ stories’ from a very young age. I knew about all His miracles and parables before I even went to kindergarten. I’ve loved Jesus as long as I can remember because of my Mum’s love for Him.
Don’t deny your children because … of such is the Kingdom of Heaven.

I found great joy and pleasure in listening to those stories from an early age and sharing these with my children from the moment they were born.
Don’t allow anyone to refuse your children access to Jesus.

Talk to your children on a daily basis about our Father in Heaven and his Son Jesus.  

Walk humbly with The Lord

Walk humbly Micah 6:8

It is never too early to tell your children what God expects of them.

What does the Lord require of all of us? To do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God.

I don’t know about your children, but mine sure know all the right buttons to press to get me up and going and as such I have occasionally said things that I regret.
Don’t act in anger, but keep in mind when dealing with your children to always treat them justly, with mercy as you walk humbly with your God.

Honour your parents

Honour your parents Exodus 20:12

Honour your parents. Teach your children from an early age that they are to respect their elders. If you fail to do so, you’ll only have yourself to blame if they don’t obey you when they should.

Not only that. But if you don’t instil respect for authority in your children, you are neglecting this very important commandment and both you and your children will suffer as a result.

In the Bible, in the old days, Jewish families were encouraged to dob in their children if they were gluttons and drunks. This behaviour was considered so evil that the tribe wanted to get rid of these wayward kids altogether. I do not encourage this (God says, ‘Do not kill’), but these verses give us some perspective on what people of old expected of their children.

Nowadays we run to doctors and stand ready with pills and therapies if our precious ones ‘don’t behave.’ In those days, they were told to behave or thrown out of the tribe.

It is reasonable to expect respect and obedience from our children.

Keep His Commandments

Keep His Commandments Psalm 78:5-7

On that note, set house rules for your children. Give them clear guidelines to live by when at home as well as when out in the world.

If you know any better moral guidelines to live by than God’s Commandments, you can let me know about it. Till then, I tell my children to live by God’s Ten Commandments which are clearly spelled out in Exodus 20 and Deuteronomy 5 and  summed up as,

‘Love each other and do unto others, as you like them to do unto you.’

It is well. It shall be well.

It is well 2 Kings 4

Every now and then we all throw up our hands and are close to giving up. I should speak for myself here but, honestly, I cannot count the times, where I thought, “Enough already, how much can a person take?”

This has happened with ill health and also with rebellious kids to the point where it appears as if they’re dead (to me) because I’ve exhausted all options and all that’s left for me to do, is cry to The Lord. I may not always have done the right things and as such believe that I deserve what I get, however, God’s Word tells me that I have an advocate, Jesus who atoned for my sins.

Reality does not always match God’s Truth. Quite a while ago now I decided to speak out God’s Truth over the life of my children and myself. There have been many times that God’s Word pulled me through, and Scripture Verses such as this one comforted me and helped me over the rough patches.

The Bible tells the story of this ‘Great Woman, a Shunnamite.’ She was childless and received a child from God because of the kindness she had shown to one of his Prophets. When the child died, she did not break down and start wailing.
When people asked her, if all was OK, she responded with, “It shall be well.” She continued to say, “It is well,” till she saw the prophet and then ‘demanded’ that he would take care of the situation.

And Elisha, the prophet took care of it for her. He prayed to The Lord on her behalf and her child was brought back to life.
How do I apply this Scripture Verse to life? When everything is getting on top of me and seemingly too much to handle, I give it to The Lord and believe and say, “It’s all good.”

Sure, every now and then I may despair about a situation but I usually catch myself and remember this ‘Great Woman.’ Her child had died and she said, “It shall be well.” And it was. Her faith was rewarded.

Jesus said, “Be of good cheer,’ and I say Amen to that.

I will help thee

I will help thee Isaiah 41:10

No matter what I face in life, God is with me. He is with my children. Our Father will help me, He will help my children. There is no need to fear anything because the Lord is there; the promise is that He is with me and will help me.

I believe this promise with all my heart and this is what I have experienced also throughout my life. Sometimes I need to remind myself of this because during the hustle and bustle of life I get distracted.

It is my job as a Mum to remind myself and my children on a daily basis that there is no need to fear anything because God is with us and will help us.

There is no fear in Love

There is no fear in love John 4:18

Some people are easier to love than others. Throughout the generations, there have been people in my family who like to have us walk on eggshells around them, and for too many years I have. The thinly veiled threats can vary between, “I won’t like you if you cook anything other than my favourite dish” and, “If you upset me, or dare reprimand or oppose me, you may never see me again.”
I’m embarrassed to admit that I’ve bought into this for far too long and yielded and gave in and adjusted my behaviour to please those that insist on never being satisfied with any situation.

I’ve finally learned to, not only understand, but also live according to God’s promises and guidelines. One of the most powerful Scripture Verses in the Bible teaches us that,

Love has in it no element of fear; but perfect love drives away fear because fear involves pain, and if a man gives way to fear, there is something imperfect in his love. Weymouth New Testament

Living according to these verses can make all the difference in your life.

Dear Father, I choose never again to have another fearful relationship and from now on I will only maintain and cultivate loving relationships. This is how I will set the right example for my children.

Don’t give way to fear. Whatever your loved ones threaten you with: Don’t act or react out of fear when you engage with them. Instead, act with love.

There is no fear in perfect love.

The above twelve Scripture Verses helped me much when raising my children.

Thank you to my friend Kathi who encouraged me to have a look at what God’s Word says about raising children.

Brother James: Growing Up With the Messiah


NEW BOOK RELEASE

Brother James: Growing Up With the Messiah

by Chris Lambert

BOOK DESCRIPTION

When your parents know, but you don’t…

James doesn’t know he’s growing up in the first century AD. The brutal Romans occupy the Promised Land, the Pharisees think just about everything is a sin, and the bandits are trying to start a rebellion. And everyone thinks the Saviour will show up any time now to Brother James by Chris Lambertoverthrow the Romans. There’s something else James doesn’t know – his very own brother is growing up to be the Promised Messiah.

A gritty, compelling novel…” MJ Chivers, Amazon reviewer

Christian historical fiction as you’ve never read it before. James just wants to build things, but has to navigate political and religious forces sweeping the nation. There are subtle and not-so-subtle hints that there’s something special about his brother, and that his parents know. But James doesn’t notice. Not really.
