My Understanding Of Life!!!

LIFE:

Everybody is Serious,Everybody is quiet!
Everybody is focused,wait;they are the Focus…
Everybody loves life,she seems to love them too.

Am complaining,she seems to think am ugly.
Life…life…life…
what makes one beautiful?
She seems to be the reflection of who I am…
Life’s ugly when am ugly,
Life’s beautiful when am beautiful!

Everyone is different,life looks different,
Am happy;am in the right life,
Am sad;am living someone’s life,
Life,she’s perfect,am perfect in my own way,
Someone’s life,she’s perfect,but, she’s not my life.

Its said,
“Life is like a car travelling on a long journey,you meet a lot of people,you see a lot of things until your fuel runs out”

Am a life,she’s on a journey,
What are we looking for?
Just how much fuel do we have left?
Is the fuel coupled with us finishing my task?
Or it finishes any ways?

Live your life as a Revolution,
Not a process of Evolution
It’s said
“The more you live,
The more you learn”
For me its more like,
What are you living for?
What are you learning from?

Everybody knows the life,right?
How many, are living the life?
Thought so too…

Look around you
Life is a story told by different faces,
Everybody sees life as the let her see them…

BUT WAIT!!!

What Is Life?

Life is what GOD INHALED into us.

What Are We To Do With Life?

EXHALE what GOD INHALED into us.

Why?

Because it is the essence of our existence

How?

By following the guidelines He gave us

Which?

The Bible -Basic
-Instructions
-Before
-Leaving
-Earth…

Only then ,can you know the Procedure to live Life

For A Fact,

There is no question that will be asked about LIFE, that was not answered 2,000years ago!

Note:

Since LIFE was given to us by God,when ever we are not in Christ,we are SIGNING a legal right for the devil to take over,LET’s BE CAREFUL THE KIND OF LIFE WE LIVE…

I hear someone saying “no wander my life is bad…”

Listen:

When LIFE treats you bad,tell her, you’ve got manners!

You are one of a kind,
Designed to glorify God as only you can…
That’s why your life is yours,
So,therefore, live it to the glory of God!!!

God Already Knows!!!Stop letting The devil Use Your Head…

Learn From:

Grandma’s pet Duck

There was a little boy visiting his grandparents on their farm.

He was given a slingshot to play with out in the woods.

He practiced in the woods; but he could never hit the target.

Getting a little discouraged, he headed back for dinner.

As he was walking back he saw Grandma’s pet duck.

Just out of impulse, he let the slingshot fly, hit the duck square in

the head and killed it. He was shocked and grieved!

In a panic, he hid the dead duck in the wood pile; only to see his

sister watching! Sally had seen it all, but she said nothing.

After lunch the next day Grandma said, “Sally, let’s wash the dishes”

But Sally said, “Grandma, Johnny told me he wanted to help in the
kitchen.”

Then she whispered to him, “Remember the duck?”

So Johnny did the dishes.

Later that day, Grandpa asked if the children wanted to go fishing and

Grandma said, “I’m sorry but I need Sally to help make supper.”

Sally just smiled and s aid, “Well that’s all right because Johnny told

me he wanted to help” She whispered again, “Remember the duck?” So Sally
went
fishing and Johnny stayed to help.

After several days of Johnny doing both his chores and Sally’s; he

finally couldn’t stand it any longer.

He came to Grandma and confessed that he had killed the duck.

Grandma knelt down, gave him a hug and said, “Sweetheart, I KNOW. You

see, I was standing at the window and I saw the whole thing,

but because I love you, I forgave you. I was just wondering how long you
would let Sally make a slave of you.”

Thought For The Day And Every Day Thereafter?

Whatever is in your past, whatever you have done…

And the devil keeps throwing it up in your face

(lying, cheating, debt, fear, bad habits, hatred, anger, bitterness,
etc.) ….whatever it is…You need to know that

God was standing at the window and He saw the whole thing.

He has seen your whole life. He wants you to know that

He loves you and that you are forgiven.

He’s just wondering how long you will let the devil

make a slave of you.

The great thing about God is that WHEN YOU ASK FOR FORGIVENESS;

He not only forgives you, but He forgets.

It is by God’s grace and mercy that we are saved.

Go ahead and make the difference in someone’s life today.

God is at the window!

When Jesus died on the cross; he was thinking of you…

STOP CONDEMNING SINNERS!!!

LEARN FROM PEOPLE’s RESPONSE TO SINNERS AND MAKE YOUR DECISION.

NOTE: This article is based on the FACT that if Jesus didn’t forget you while you were still a sinner OR hasn’t forgotten you even though your still a sinner,then…you also shouldn’t .

Just watched a video of a ministry,a christian ministry that went to the prison to introduce Jesus to the prisoners. These were people the world had neglected,people had written them off(maybe you and i),and no good was expected to come out of them;old they were,young they were,black and white,you could find them all present,present in this final destination,where they thought Jesus wouldn’t find them.

John 3:17a

“For God did not send His Son into the world to CONDEMN the world…”
This are people the world have condemned,not only those in prison but every sinner(anybody not saved) the so called “Religious christians” have Condemned, Remember:
John 8:1-11

“… Woman,where are those accusers of yours?Has no one CONDEMNED you?
She said”no one,LORD”
And Jesus said to her”neither do I CONDEMN you;go and sin no more…”
You see,it is very clear even from the beginning,the BASIC reason Jesus came is so;
John 3:17b

“…That, the world through Him might be saved”.
Jesus came to Save “Sinners”, but how is this possible(people been saved,I mean),when those who know the Word instead of Preaching it, are CONDEMNING them(sinners)? Don’t forget;
John 8:7b

“… He who is without sin among you,let him throw a stone…”

Romans 5:8

“But God demonstrated His love toward us, in that,while we were STILL sinners,Christ died for us”!
God loved us all WHILE WE WERE YET SINNERS,so why do we Condemn those THAT ARE STILL LIKE THE WAY WE WERE ? when God’s basic desire is for us to make “all men come to the Knowledge of Him and be saved”(1st Timothy 2:4, paraphrase).
As I watched the video,I felt it in my spirit,that there was a need to pen this down, because a lot of people(“christians inclusive”),are beginning to forget their mission and the essence of why they are called so.
The Bible which is God’s word tells us to preach the word with respect to this topic by:
2nd Timothy 4:1-5

“…Convince,rebuke,exhort,with all long-suffering and teaching…”
No were in Scriptures did God ask us to condemn anyone(“Therefore judge nothing before the time,until the LORD comes…” 1st corinthians 4:5),that does not mean you shouldn’t exercise 2nd Timothy 4:2 as seen above.
Here is a Reasonable Question you should be asking yourself;if God didn’t come to condemn sinners,why should I?

This Message Is For Two Sets Of People:
FIRST

If you are still not saved(you haven’t said Yes to Jesus),I want you to know that God loves you and wants to call you His son/daughter!! Its the devil’s plan to make you feel God doesn’t love you;He does! So much He died for you(john 3:16).He died, so today you can say “yes to Jesus”.Decide to say Yes to Jesus today so God’s love can overflow in your life,so you can fully understand this love He has for you!!!

SECONDLY

If you have said Yes to Jesus and you are still doing what Christ wouldn’t do,then this message is for you!(STOP CONDEMNING PEOPLE and start showing them the love the Father has put in you). Convince,even rebuke them when necessary so the name of the Father can be glorified in them!!!
Remember, your total understanding of Christ as a christian(someone in a relationship with Christ),will make you,through love,lead the First set of people to Christ!!!

Now based on the parable of the lost sheep(Luke 15:1-7),heaven is waiting on YOU to throw the biggest party it has ever seen(Luke 15:7),just by either :
-You been the First person and Accepting Christ Jesus as your personal LORD and Saviour.
OR
-Been the Second person and re dedicating your life to Christ Jesus and leading someone to Christ!!!

As for Me;I have said Yes to Jesus! And it is His Grace(definitely not mine)that has helped me be able to not CONDEMN but CORRECT PEOPLE!!!now that’s a true story!!!

EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED!!!

Everything Is Connected
There once was a farmer who grew award-winning corn. Each year he entered his corn in the state fair where it won a blue ribbon.

One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew it. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors.

“How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with yours each year?” the reporter asked.

“Why sir,” said the farmer, “didn’t you know? The winds picks up pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbors grow inferior corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors grow good corn.”

He is very much aware of the connectedness of life. His corn cannot improve unless his neighbor’s corn also improves.

So it is with our lives. Those who choose to live in peace must help their neighbors to live in peace. Those who choose to live well must help others to live well, for the value of a life is measured by the lives it touches. And those who choose to be happy must help others to find happiness, for the welfare of each is bound up with the welfare of all.

The lesson for each of us is this: if we are to grow good corn we must help our neighbor grow good corn.

Plant A Word Today!!!

Plant a Word Today
by Deborah Ann Belka  
1/07/2012 / Poetry

Plant a Word today,
prepare another’s heart
then sow the seed of faith
and watch what it will start.

Plant a Word today,
spread the Gospel tract
then water it with trust
and other’s it will impact.

Plant a Word today,
release the plan of peace
then the hope in the unseen
God will generously release.

Plant a Word today,
share the fruit of Christ’s love
then watch it grow up
giving praise to God above.

Plant a Word today,
it just takes one tiny seed
but with it you may harvest
all that other’s will ever need!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Genesis 1:11

“And God said, Let the earth bring forth
grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit
tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed
is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

TO GOD BE THE GLORY

ENCOURAGEMENT!!!

A Life of Regret
by Marlo Wells
01/09/12

A Life Of Regret

2And saying, Repent (think differently; change your mind, regretting your sins and changing your conduct), for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. –Matthew 3:2 (AMP)

I wish I hadn’t done that. I can’t believe I said that! If only I could take it back. Or to quote the famous Steve Urkel, “Did I do that”? How many times in any given day do you find yourself uttering these very words? And if you are doing this daily, the task of rising above whatever the situation is that caused it can seem insurmountable. Days carry over to weeks, weeks to months, months to years and years to a lifetime.

Why are so many lives filled with regret, from the smallest slips of the tongue to the major blow outs that separate for a lifetime? It’s very simple. We stop at regret. Regret is only a part of repentance. Look at today’s Scripture.

“Regretting your sins and changing your conduct”.
Repentance, followed through to completeness, is what in fact liberates you from a life of regret. Repentance will bring you face to face with reality and send you in the opposite direction. Regret keeps you in bondage.

I believe that people who continue to do the same things over again, don’t necessarily regret what they are doing. In my opinion, they regret getting caught and regret how they are viewed after getting caught. Sometimes that is enough for them to view their behavior with a clearer perspective. However, a lot of times it is not. The more realistic approach would be to ask yourself, “What is it that I regret”?

Looking back on my life, there have been so many things that I have regretted. From my childhood to my life today, there are many things that I wish I would have done differently. The problem is that the very moment that has just passed can never be regained. All the money in the world, all the begging and crying, all the regret can never retrieve that single moment in time.

How then is there any hope for us? Grace.
Try as we may, imaginations, movies and wonder creams, there is yet to date no such thing as a time machine. In order to grow, we have to accept responsibility for that which we regret and change our ways and move forward.

The only guarantee that you have with repentance is God’s grace and freedom. Your regret and repentance does not assure you a place in the person’s life that you have hurt. It does not even guarantee you their forgiveness. But it does guarantee you God’s forgiveness and that it the most important thing.

I cannot tell you the times I have had to apologize to a telemarketer or help desk phone support. First of all, I don’t have to answer the phone if I don’t know who it is. Second of all, if I call in for help, I have to remember; they are doing their job and have probably been talked down to all day. All these things aside, I am Christ’s representative, ouch!

That is a seemingly minuscule thing in the greater scheme of our regrets. I have sat down with my children and asked for their forgiveness where I have failed them. I point out that they should learn from our mistakes and go on to have better marriages and be better parents. Don’t repeat our struggles. Don’t live with our regrets.

I have had to seek the forgiveness of my husband for the things I have said and done that have wounded him along the years. Forgiveness is a wonderful thing; it is a gift, a treasure. It should never be taken for granted. If someone bestows such a gift on you, should you not guard it? That is changing your conduct. Feeling the pain that you have caused another and never wanting to wound them again.

There are things I have said and done in my walk with Christ. There are people I have wounded along the way in the Body. I have cried out to God for His grace and mercy, His forgiveness for myself. But I have also cried out for those that I have hurt. I ask God to guard and keep them, that they will not be led astray because of my actions.

Looking at our lives and how we live can be very disheartening. It can leave you unable to move forward, weighed down in the muck of despair. You can easily find yourself defeated before you can even get started. What’s the key?

10For godly grief and the pain God is permitted to direct, produce a repentance that leads and contributes to salvation and deliverance from evil, and it never brings regret; but worldly grief (the hopeless sorrow that is characteristic of the pagan world) is deadly [breeding and ending in death]. – 1 Corinthians 7:10

Godly repentance, that leads you to regret your sin and change your conduct, will never lead you back to regret. If you don’t regret your sin to begin with, there will be no repentance. But upon attaining true repentance, you will have no regret.

Paul is our shining example. If anyone had cause to be weighed down with a life of regret it would be him. But he lived a life of repentance and made it his life’s “one aspiration”:

13I do not consider, brethren, that I have captured and made it my own [yet]; but one thing I do [it is my one aspiration]: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead –Philippians 3:13

Let us join with Paul. Let our lives be one of true repentance. Pursue God whole-heartedly, making this your one aspiration. There will we find freedom from a “Life of Regret”

YOU DIDN’T KNOW THIS!!!

LEARN FROM TECHNOLOGY!!!

GOOGLE: I have EveryThing!!

FACEBOOK: I know EveryBody!!

INTERNET: Without me, You All are Nothing!!

ELECTRICITY: yeah right, keep talking Guys!!

LESSON
No matter how highly placed you are, over someone, always remember, there is a God!!!(After all the long list of people above you, there still is a God,the highest of all that is high!)
The thing is this;you are were you are, so you can function with respect to someone(that includes YOU,thinking, but i have not reached anywhere,YET),either above you or below you…
Listen,what CAN Google or Facebook do without the Internet?(understand me,in the above example,they are the lowest level one can ever attain, so therefore, picture where you are as the lowest level you will ever be;thus, you been Google for today’s teaching!,as Electricity is the highest in the example),but with the Internet, what CAN’T they do?(We all know their functions).
Could it be, that the reason you are not known or your function is not yet appreciated is because,the immediate above(Internet) you need is missing and has not yet been acknowledged? NOTE,with or without the Internet, Google still remains a SEARCH ENGINE(so with or without your immediate above,you still will be somewhere),but ONLY with the Internet is it a FUNCTIONAL SEARCH ENGINE,definitely with Electricity behind it. Likewise Your Situation,couldn’t it be, that, it’s because of the lack of your immediate above(Internet gotten as a result of Electricity),that you are were you are Today?Remember, Only With Your Immediate Above Can You Know Were You Ought To Be!
In other to enjoy and appreciate life,you must find the immediate connection that will come before you(your immediate above), so you can actually” Make Sense” when you introduce yourself to life!
But seek ye first the kingdom of God(ELECTRICITY)and His righteousness(INTERNET),and all these things will be added to You(GOOGLE or FACEBOOK).(Matthew 6:33 TCV)
The lesson here is simple:
-Realize God as the Greatest(none before Him and none after Him),knowing your the smallest,Reference Him as the Highest,thereby seeking Him always…

-Then follow His righteousness(you must know Him to know His righteousness)

-And everything you could ever imagine(…Exceedingly Abundantly Above all that we ask or think…
Ephesians 3:20 WEB),would be added onto you(I believe the place you want to be in life, would fall somewhere above),
its that simple! but Note this: When you type a search in Google,you do not ask how Google would find the answer,that’s FAITH!!!( you’re google in this case,remember!),So after God decides to use you, after following the above principles,don’t DOUBT your ability to be used for His glory!!!
IN CONCLUSION
Immediately you realize that, just as you are above someone,someone is also above you,humble yourself,because only then, will the Lord lift you up!!!(“No matter how highly placed you are, over someone, always remember, there is a God”).THE POINT FROM THE START WAS TO TEACH US HUMILITY AND THE BLESSINGS ATTACHED TO IT(to a person that is humble)!!!

He Told You So!!!

Learn from the Barber!
A man went to a barbershop to have his
hair cut and his beard trimmed.
As the barber began to work,
they began to have a good conversation.
They talked about so many things
and various subjects.

When they eventually touched
on the subject of God,
the barber said:
‘I don’t believe
that God
exists.’
‘Why do you say that?’ asked the
customer. ‘Well, you just have
to go out in the street to realize
that God doesn’t exist.

Tell me, if God exists, would
there be so many sick people?
Would there be abandoned
children?

If God existed,
there would be neither
suffering nor pain!
I can’t imagine a loving God
who would allow all of these things.’

The customer thought for a moment,
but didn’t respond because he didn’t want to start an argument.

The barber finished his job
and the customer left the shop.

Just after he left the barbershop,
he saw a man in the street with long,
stringy, dirty hair and an untrimmed
beard.
He looked dirty and unkempt.
The customer turned back and entered the barber shop again and he said to the barber:

‘You know what?
Barbers do not exist.’

‘How can you say that?’
asked the surprised barber.
‘I am here, and I am a barber.
And I just worked on you!’

‘No!’ the customer exclaimed.
‘Barbers don’t exist because if they did,
there would be no people with dirty
long hair and untrimmed beards,
like that man outside.’

‘Ah, but barbers DO exist!
That’s what happens when people
do not come to me.’

‘Exactly!’ affirmed the customer.
‘That’s the point! God, too, DOES exist!
That’s what happens when people do not
go to Him and don’t look to Him for help.

That’s why there’s so much
pain and suffering in the world.

YOU are still priceless!!!

What money teaches You!
A well-known speaker started off his seminar by
holding up $200.00. In the room of about 180 People, he asked,
“Who would like this $200 ?”
Hands started going up.
He said, “I am going to give this $200 to one of you
but first, let me do this.
He proceeded to crumple up the $200 .
He then asked, “Who still wants it?”
Still the hands were up in the air.
Well, he replied, “What if I do this?”
And he dropped it on the ground
and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe.
He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty.
“Now, who still wants it?”
Still the hands went into the air.
“My friends, we have all learned a very valuable lesson.
No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it
because it did not decrease in value.
It was still worth $200.
Many times in our lives,
we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt
by the decisions we make and
the circumstances that come our way.
We feel as though we are worthless!
But no matter what has happened or
what will happen, you will never lose your value.
Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased,
you are still priceless to those who DO LOVE you.
The worth of our lives comes not in what we do or who we know,
but by WHO WE ARE.
You are special- Don’t EVER forget it.
