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!

Grocery list


FORWARDED MESSAGE

about the power of prayer

I received the ‘GROCERY LIST’ as a forwarded message and thought to post it here because it gave me food for thought with regards to the power of prayer and the weight we give to it.
SQ Helper set 24
Thank you to the kind friend who forwarded this message to me.

GROCERY LIST

Louise Redden, a poorly dressed lady with a look of defeat on her face, walked into a grocery store. She approached the owner of the store in a most humble manner and asked if he would let her charge a few groceries.
She softly explained that her husband was very ill and unable to work, they had seven children and they needed food.
John Longhouse, the grocer, scoffed at her and requested that she leave his store at once.
Visualizing the family needs, she said: ‘Please, sir! I will bring you the money just as soon as I can.’
John told her he could not give her credit, since she did not have a charge account at his store.
Standing beside the counter was a customer who overheard the conversation between the two. The customer walked forward and told the grocer that he would stand good for whatever she needed for her family. The grocer said in a very reluctant voice, ‘Do you have a grocery list?’
Louise replied, ‘Yes sir.’ ‘O.K’ he said, ‘put your grocery list on the scales and whatever your grocery list weighs, I will give you that amount in groceries.’
Louise hesitated a moment with a bowed head, then she reached into her purse and took out a piece of paper and scribbled something on it. She then laid the piece of paper on the scale carefully with her head still bowed.
The eyes of the grocer and the customer showed amazement when the scales went down and stayed down.
The grocer, staring at the scales, turned slowly to the customer and said begrudgingly, ‘I can’t believe it.’
The customer smiled and the grocer started putting the groceries on the other side of the scales. The scale did not balance so he continued to put more and more groceries on them until the scales would hold no more.
The grocer stood there in utter disgust. Finally, he grabbed the piece of paper from the scales and looked at it with greater amazement.
It was not a grocery list, it was a prayer, which said:
‘Dear Lord, you know my needs and I am leaving this in your hands.’
The grocer gave her the groceries that he had gathered and stood in stunned silence.
Louise thanked him and left the store. The other customer handed a fifty-dollar bill to the grocer and said; ‘It was worth every penny of it. Only God knows the weight of a prayer.’
After you’ve read this, say a prayer of thanks for all your blessings. That’s all you have to do.
Peace and Blessings… In God we trust!
Praise God, He is All Merciful.

Mary and the Alabaster Box


Mary and the alabaster box.

Her sins are forgiven for she loved much.

Some say that there are a couple of different eyewitness accounts of the event of “Mary and the alabaster box” in the Bible. We think that there may be four versions. The first account is by Matthew, the second by Mark and we believe the third and fourth accounts are given by Luke and John. Have a read and see what you think for yourself.

Dr James Tabor who is Professor of the Department of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina (Christian origins and ancient Judaism) has an interesting blog post on Mary for those who like to read a more in-depth study on the different versions.

What we know is, that when Jesus says that we’ll be remembering Mary, he isn’t talking about his mother. Jesus is talking about another woman called Mary and he says that “her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much.”

Mary and the alabaster box

We love the story about Mary and the alabaster box so much that we decided to do a song about it. Years ago when we started to read the Bible in earnest we were so excited to discover GOD’s rule book. As in, pfew … there are indeed standards in place that we are supposed to live up to as lovers of GOD’s Word. And we were no less excited to find that, hey, there is forgiveness if you do the best you can and yet occasionally muck up.

Mary and the alabaster box
lyrics from Matthew, Mark, Luke and John

She put the ointment of spikenard very costly.
She put it on his body for his burial.
Mary wrought a good work on Jesus.
Let her alone.
She done what she could.
Mary wrought a good work on him.
An alabaster box of very precious ointment.
She poured it on his head as he sat at meat.
She done what she could.
She wrought a good work on him.
Mary wrought a good work on Jesus.
Let her alone.
She done what she could.
Spikenard very costly.
With her hair she wiped his feet.
She did it for his burial.
It’ll be told for a memorial.

Matthew’s version

She hath wrought a good work upon me.

Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, there came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat at meat. But when his disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, To what purpose is this waste? For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor.

When Jesus understood it, he said unto them, Why trouble ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me. For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always. For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial.

Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her.

Mark’s version

Let her alone; why trouble ye her?

She hath done what she could.

And being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and she brake the box, and poured it on his head. And there were some that had indignation within themselves, and said, Why was this waste of the ointment made? For it might have been sold for more than three hundred pence, and have been given to the poor. And they murmured against her.

And Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble ye her? she hath wrought a good work on me. For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good: but me ye have not always. She hath done what she could: she is come aforehand to anoint my body to the burying. Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world, this also that she hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.

Luke’s version

Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much

Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.

And one of the Pharisees desired him that he would eat with him. And he went into the Pharisee’s house, and sat down to meat. And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster box of ointment, And stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment.

Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he spake within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him: for she is a sinner. And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on.

There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty. And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most? Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged.

And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head.

Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet. My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment.

Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little. And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven.

And they that sat at meat with him began to say within themselves, Who is this that forgiveth sins also?

And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.

John’s version

Mary anointed the feet of Jesus and wiped his feet with her hair.

The poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always.

Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha. (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.)

Then Jesus six days before the Passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead. There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him.

Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.
Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, which should betray him, Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor? This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.
Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept this.
For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always.

Jesus reiterated what the prophet Ezekiel told us centuries ago.

All of Scripture tells us about GOD’s grace and his forgiveness and long-suffering nature. On the Sabbath yesterday, we listened to another excellent Torah Pearl hosted by Jono from TRUTH2U Radio with guests Keith Johnson and Nehemia Gordon. And one of the references which was mentioned with regards to God’s forgiveness is in Ezekiel where we are told that what counts is the actions we take today. What matters is not where we were or what we did in the past. What matters to the Creator of Heaven and Earth is who we are today. And the actions we take this very day is what determines our destiny.

Jesus prophesied that Mary’s actions would be remembered.

Jesus said, “this, that this woman hath done, shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.” If we assume that the four different versions mentioned above all relate to the same event, then Jesus spoke about Mary the sister of Lazarus when he said these words. Jesus did not say that we’ll be remembering and honouring his mother, who was also called Mary.

I want to make this distinction because I was raised a Catholic. As a Catholic I was taught to pray to Mary the mother of Jesus. This meant for me that I kneeled down in Catholic churches in front of mother Mary statues. As a child, on my way to school,  I would often walk into the church, light some candles in front of a mother Mary statue and kneel down on a pew before I’d say my ‘Hail Marys’. This is all right and proper according to the Catholic faith.

During my childhood after we’d been to ‘Confession’ we were told by the priest to say a certain amount of ‘Hail Marys’ and ‘Holy Fathers,’ in order for our  sins to be forgiven. The amount of these prayers depended on the multitude and size of our sins. I was educated by nuns. My sins were many, as you can imagine for any primary school aged kid, and therefore my affinity with Mary with the alabaster box great.

What did Jesus say about Mary?

What I am interested in today is not what the Catholic church says about who to remember and how but what God’s Word and particularly Jesus himself says about remembering Mary (and the alabaster box). Jesus does not tell us to kneel in front of a statue of his mum and pray to her. Jesus tells us that we’ll remember Mary the sinner, a woman who made mistakes, just like I did as a child and most of us still do a lot of the time.

The good part.

The great part about this event described in scripture is that Jesus tells us that Mary did a good work, that she did what she could and for the people around her to leave her alone and not criticise her actions. Mary is called a sinner which shows us that she mucked up and probably more than once. Yup, I can relate. And this Mary anointed Jesus ahead of his burial and kissed and washed His feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head. Jesus says, don’t trouble this woman, she has done a good work on me.

We’re told by Jesus that we’ll remember a Mary who made mistakes but also loved much and had faith. She simply did what she could. And we’re told that because of her good work, love and faith,  her sins were forgiven her and Jesus tells her to go in peace.

That means there is hope for all of us. And I reckon that is Good Nnews, if ever I heard any.

What happened to me

My Story of Survival

BK COVER F My Story of Survival round 2 v4 72 900pxHIf you’ve read My Story of Survival, you know that I burned out pretty good and due to neglecting my health for a long time nearly ended up on the scrapheap. But GOD is good and heard my prayers and now I have all this bonus time available to write books.

I felt that I needed to tell what happened to me as a warning to other people not to neglect their health, because life is very precious and none of us is invincible.

When I started off writing the book I didn’t particularly enjoy what I was doing because, let’s face it, why write about illness once you are starting to feel better?

However, during the process of writing the book I got excited that little ol’ me would be able to help some people and possibly even prevent others from getting sick, just by telling my story.

This is indeed what happened, and I cannot even begin to tell you how happy that makes me. Here are a few reviews from the UK.

AMAZON UK REVIEWS

Format: Kindle Edition

I got hold of this book for a friend of mine that has the same type of problem as Mimi. I think the book is very useful for people discovering how your bodies react to food. I am sure this book will help my friend. I recommend this book to anyone who has any kind of physical or emotional eating disorder. I gave it 4 out of 5 because I would like it to be longer. I hope the author writes more.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase

I love this book. It is based on author’s experience of food intolerances. I find it is full of great information and notes on healthy diet which can be beneficial for everyone.
.
 .

All the way from the other side of the planet people are reading what I am writing down and gaining some benefit. How cool is that?

For long periods of time I couldn’t even handle the flickering of a computer screen or the soft buzzing of a monitor. I wasn’t able to sit up or lift my hands for any length of time. Who would have thought that I be writing my own book?

What I never expected in a million years is that I would actually enjoy the whole process of becoming a published author. Because that is what I am now; a published author.

I am having so much FUN!!!

I am not only a published, but a bestselling author as well. In seven categories! I am not saying this to brag. I am telling you because I want to share how much fun it is to be able to share my story so that others can benefit.

I have not had this much FUN in a long long time and I just want to share!

Because I enjoyed the whole process so much I decided to partner with the Self-Publishing School which helped me publish my very first bestseller and want to let you know about the same opportunity as well.

Free course: How to become a bestselling author in 2016

FREE VIDEO COURSE ON HOW TO BECOME A BESTSELLING AUTHOR

FREE WEBINAR ON HOW TO BECOME A BESTSELLING AUTHOR

FREE VIDEO SERIES ON HOW TO PUBLISH YOUR OWN BOOK

SELFPUBLISHING SCHOOL

The School is having a special on at the moment and you can click here to receive a free video series on how to publish your own book.

This mini-course is broken down into 4 training videos and exercises that show you exactly how to cross off “write that book” from your bucket list — in just 30 minutes a day.

First it’ll show you the exact blueprint to go from blank page to bestselling author in just 90 days — even if you’re busy, bad at writing, or don’t know where to start.

The video then tells you how to build momentum and finally cross out “write a book” on your bucket list.

Bestselling Book Launch Blueprint

The video includes the Bestselling Book Launch Blueprint: How to turn your book into a bestseller, including Amazon’s “Rule of 3” Secret that maximizes sales.

Chandler also discusses case studies of bestselling authors and details the kind of royalty checks they have coming in every month.

I had already pretty much written my book when I signed up with SPS. Why would you need to do a course on publishing a book if you have already written one? You don’t have to. You can write to traditional publishers and I will pray with you that they’ll take you on as an author. You can publish as an Indie Publisher with Smashwords, Apple, Amazon, Lulu and a whole host of other publishers out there without having anyone help you. And I’ll wish you good luck and sincerely hope that it works out for you.

You can google anything nowadays and there are endless guides on how to publish your own book. As a matter of fact I just wrote my own official launch plan and you will get a free copy of this if you join my launch team.

What is so terrific about this School is that there is a proven Blueprint to follow and they help you from A to Z.  They even help you with what to write about if you would like to become a published author, but do not know what to write about.

I had already written around 12,000 words of my book when I signed up with SPS. I had already paid for another course when I signed up with SPS. But there was something about this enthusiastic young kid, Chandler Bolt, that appealed to me. And without overthinking it too much, I signed up because there is a solid money back guarantee.

Best Selling banner

I am so pleased I did. It is without a shadow of a doubt one of the most FUN experiences of my life that I’ve now published a book and have people read and appreciate this.
And as a bonus for my efforts, I’ve received a bestselling banner from Amazon. How cool is that!

AA AMAZON BESTSELLER SELFHELP

After three months, School is over. My book is now published, I get to keep the course and can repeat the process as often as I like. But I signed up to stay part of the group cause I am having too much FUN.

I wanted to let you know about this because, if you’re like me and always wanted to write and publish a book but didn’t know how-to, I’d love you to join me as a fellow student at SPS.

I’ll give you a quick tour of why I like SPS so much.

Did I tell you that SPS helped me publish my first book My Story of Survival? I did, didn’t I?

My Story of Survival was published on 29.11.2015.

Digestive Organs

On 06.12.2015, that’s right, just one week later my book becomes number one bestseller in the category of Digestive Organs.

Science

A day later on 17.12.2015, My Story of Survival lists number one under Amazon Best Sellers in Science and Math. My daughter says that this is out of 226,303 books. I don’t know if this is true. I didn’t check the numbers.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Less than ten days later on 26.10.2015 My Story of Survival ranks in another relevant category #1 Best Seller under Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Why is this so good? This is so good because all these categories are relevant to the content of my book and anyone who is suffering from any of these conditions would have come across my book if they were googling for this. That means that my wish and prayer of being able to help people, is being answered.

Chronic Pain

Amazon #1 Best Seller under Chronic Pain on 26.12.2015. And that just was like a huge band-aid on wounds for me and I couldn’t feel as much as a twinge of pain all day long on the 26th.

Viral Diseases

Amazon #1  Best Seller in Viral Diseases. Nothing wrong with going viral, is there?
So what if I didn’t agree with any of the labels I was given? The conditions attached to these labels still affect me one way or another and these labels are still being handed out to people today.

Thanks to Amazon, customers who are affected by similar labels can find My Story of Survival and hopefully benefit from reading it and join my pursuit for a clean bill of health.

AA AMAZON BESTSELLER SELFHELP VIRAL

I have only listed the #1 rankings. At various times My Story of Survival ranked also under Best sellers in the categories of Medical Books- Medicine, Diseases and Physical ailments and Nutrition. To be honest I couldn’t quite keep up with where my book was travelling.

Christian Books … Self-Help

On 29.12.2015 My Story of Survival received the Amazon Best Sellers badge in the category of Self-Help books.

I know that I had already mentioned that, but it is such a pretty banner I just couldn’t resist finishing on such a good note. Because that self-help was only possible for me due to the oodles of faith.

Whilst Amazon is taking care of business I can continue writing my next book. Did you know that GOD hath made me to laugh? Now you know another reason why this is so!! All I got to say now is Praise the Lord for being so good to me!!

With GOD Nothing Shall Be Impossible (3)


Elizabeth, Mary and Jesus all agree

‘With GOD nothing shall be impossible’

Remember Sarah and how she gave birth aged 80? Well, this was not a one-off event. A similar thing happened with Elizabeth, the cousin of Jesus’ mother Mary, as described in the Gospels. Elizabeth had no children either. Even though both Elizabeth and her husband Zachariah were good people; they were childless. WITH GOD NOTHING SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE LUKE 1Zachariah prayed to the LORD and was promised  joy and gladness and a child, despite the fact that they were both quite old.

Mary was visited by an angel who told her that, ‘With GOD nothing shall be impossible,’ and she would receive a, ‘Holy thing … called the Son of God’.

Jesus told his disciples that faith the size of a mustard seed is enough to move mountains and in combination with prayer and fasting can even rebuke devils and cure lunacy. Jesus said that, ‘If ye have faith the size of a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.’

Prayer works miracles

After prayer, Elizabeth received a baby when she was well advanced in age. Mary said, ‘Blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.’ This is when she found out that both she and her cousin were pregnant and would give birth. Mary was promised a virgin birth.

Jesus said that faith moves mountains and with faith, ‘Nothing shall be impossible to you.’

Those words are worth holding onto. If I had not believed in those words I possibly would not have expected to live. But these words are what kept me going. GOD’s promises, Jesus’ and Jeremiah’s prophesies, Sarah and Abraham, Elizabeth and Zachariah, and Mary’s victories is what kept me going. Because all of them told me that, ‘With God nothing shall be impossible.’ And I believed them then, and I believe them now.

Another excerpt

Following is another excerpt from My Story of Survival. Looking back, my heart fills with gratitude because of the kindness that has been shown to me by everyone around me, and especially My Creator, Our Father in Heaven.

BEGINNING EXCERPT

The scans showed that my appendix had gone into hiding and all that could be seen were adhesions. Adhesions are like a type of scar tissue, or rather bands of fibrous tissue that can form between abdominal tissues and organs as a result of trauma such as surgery, infection, and for instance, a ruptured appendix.  Abdominal adhesions can cause tissues and organs in the abdominal cavity to stick together.

Before I came to hospital I had experienced many adverse reactions to antibiotics and my body vehemently protested against the antibiotics, which were administered to me through a drip. Everything got continuously expelled from both ends. As soon as it came in, it went out.

*** USEFUL FACT *** Side effects, allergies and reactions to antibiotics are not that unusual. Common side effects are rashes, diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea/vomiting, hypersensitivity, dizziness. See NOTES.

After one sleepless night in the hospital, my eldest daughter phoned around during the next night to find appropriate help for me, because she could see that the treatment I received was not necessarily doing me a lot of good. This drew the attention of some other doctors, and I ended up with a team around my bed discussing what would be the best way to go.

For a little while morphine became my best friend, but just the same it took days for my tummy to stop resembling a plank, and the relentless heaving and nonstop emptying of my bowels was taking its toll. I had to get outta here.

We prayed

My girls prayed and I prayed. I had asked for the drip to be taken out, and it was agreed that the drip would be taken out to see how I would cope, and if it were possible for me to go home to recover further so that eventually I could be operated on and my appendix removed.

Raise me up please 

I was desperate to get out of the hospital and back home and prayed with all my might. In some church leaflet a little while ago I had read about the Lord lifting people up and raising them higher. To be truthful, I didn’t quite know what that meant, but I liked the sound of it, so I went, “Father, if you could raise me up and lift me higher and higher, please. High enough to get out of here and back home with my girls. Not beyond the clouds as yet, but high enough to get out of here, please.”

I quite liked the way that sounded and repeated this a few times, and then fell asleep. The next morning my drip was taken out, and, relishing my new-found freedom, I was waving my arms up and down beside the bed when I abruptly knocked some knob.

Curiosity got the better of me, and as I pressed the knob, the bed started to move up. I giggled and pressed again. Up it went. And again and again, in no time my bed was up so high that my hands touched the ceiling. My giggles became an unstoppable laugh.

Mary, the cleaning lady, came in without me noticing. All of a sudden I realised that she was cleaning beneath the bed. When she was finished she looked up at me and said, ‘You can come down again.’

I giggled a bit more and asked her, “Did you know that these beds go up so high?” She smiled at me and said, “Yep, we use it all the time. Although most of the new beds don’t go up as high as yours; you have one of the last of the older models.” And out she went to continue her round of cleaning.

Within a minute I was back touching the ceiling, and I was still there when my medical team came in a little while later. The Registrar, surrounded by nurses and a couple of other doctors, looked up and asked, “How are you feeling today?”

I grinned back at him, “On top of the world, high as a kite, I’ve never been better.”

I was back home the next day.

AMAZON REVIEW

on December 9, 2015
This book was a very interesting read. As a nurse, I found it difficult to believe that 10 ingredients could be healthy. But when you read her true story you can understand what she went through. My sister is struggling as a newly diagnosed celiac and I suggested she read it. If you have any dietary issues, you can find some pointers that might help. With all the dietary health issues out there you start to wonder what you can really eat–this book is can get you started.

on December 9, 2015
Having suffered food sensitivities for a number of years, I found Mimi’s story inspirational. It shows the resilience of the human body and the courageousness of a woman’s willingness to survive at all costs. For those who have tried all and still aren’t sure where to start, this book will be of great help.

Is Anything Too Hard For The LORD? (1)


Is everything going your way?

Is everything going your way today? No? Funny, that, for me neither. But you know what gets me
IS ANYTHING TOO HARD FOR THE LORD GENESISthrough? The fact that nothing is too hard for the LORD! Therefore, I know that whatever struggles I face can be overcome .. by application and persistence and diligence and oodles of faith and prayer.

I know this for a fact because I lived through it. I didn’t live through it for a few moments or a day. No, I lived through it for years and years; a few decades actually. And I’ve found out, along the way, that nothing is too hard for the LORD. If an eighty-year-old lady such as Sarah can get pregnant and give birth with his help .. guess what? Nothing is too hard for the LORD!

And they said unto him, Where is Sarah thy wife? And he said, Behold, in the tent.

And he said, I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son.

And Sarah heard it in the tent door, which was behind him. Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age; and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women. Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?

And the Lord said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old? Is any thing too hard for the Lord?

At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.

Then Sarah denied, saying, I laughed not; for she was afraid. And he said, Nay; but thou didst laugh.

Terrifying Premonition

Last week I printed an excerpt of my book  ‘My Story of Survival‘ about how my daughter had a terrifying premonition. Below is another excerpt.

The warning that had come to my daughter in her ‘dream’ was that, at the time my survival was at stake, I shouldn’t take anything that would be offered to me. My daughter remembered and heeded this warning, which resulted in her refusing the morphine I was offered to cope with the relentless hurting of a ruptured appendix. Only after an abundance of prayer and a night of intolerable pain would my daughters yield and allow the nurse to give me a morphine injection.

I am now convinced that this may have saved my life because, considering the state I was in, I am pretty sure that a morphine shot would have allowed me to sink into blissful oblivion, never to return.
As it was, the hideous hurting kept me on edge and alert enough to want to stay around for my kids. I believe that if the inevitable relaxation that a morphine shot eventually did bring on had happened earlier, this potentially might have allowed the septicaemia to spread more than it did and cause more damage.

AMAZON REVIEW BELOW

By Osvaldo Q on December 1, 2015

Format: Kindle Edition

What an amazing story. I wanted to give this book to someone that would benefit from the diet tips, but found myself reading the personal story and engrossed in the trials the author went through.
The writing is clear and concise and breaks down subjects in bite size pieces.
Apart from the fascinating true story, there are Useful Facts notes distributed throughout the book which are great to investigate ingredients further.
The actual diet is also very useful and sets out ingredients and typical weeks which I would try just for the health benefits alone.
A fascinating read for anyone wanting to learn about health and read a person’s interesting journey.
END OF REVIEW

Praise the LORD for sending us messages in our dreams,

For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not.
In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men,
in slumberings upon the bed;
Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction
 …
