No matter how difficult our circumstances are, the Lord is able and willing to provide us with comfort and help. As a believer we are not left without a resource to cope with our problems. Take your request to the Lord and trust-believe He will always do what is best for you.
I thought to share the below image with you so you all remember what true love is. But first, the bible let us know what the true meaning of Love is on 1st Corinthians 13:4-8
”Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.”
Don’t forget that Our True Love is Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Thank him on this glorious day for what he has done for us.
Happy Vals Day!!
This is one of my Favorite hymn, Sing along with me….
In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand
In Christ alone, who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
‘Til on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live
There in the ground His body lay
Light of the World by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ
No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
‘Til He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand
An aging King realized that if he died he has no one to take over the throne. He decided to adopt a son. He launched a competition and 10 boys made it to the top. The King said to them, "I have one last test and whoever comes top will become my adopted son and heir to my throne." He gave each boy a seed of corn and told them to take the seed home, plant and nurture it for 3 weeks. The 10 boys took their seeds and ran home to plant their seeds. In one home, the boy and his parents were sad when the seed failed to sprout.
The boy had done everything but he failed. His friends advised him to buy a seed and plant it but his God fearing parents who had always taught him honesty refused. The day came and the 10 boys went to the palace. All the 9 boys were successful. The King went to each boy asking – “Is that what came out of the seed I gave you?" And each boy said "Yes, your majesty." The King would nod and move down the line until the last boy in the line who was shaking with fear.
The King asked him - "What did you do with the seed I gave you?" The boy said "I planted it and cared for it your majesty but it failed to sprout." The King went to the throne with the boy and said, "I gave these boys boiled seeds and a boiled seed cannot sprout. If a King must have one quality, it must be honesty and only this boy passed the
test.” We live in a society where people will do anything for success.
God sometimes does not give us things because He wants to teach us a lesson. How many people out there have achieved success the wrong way? How many people send their children to expensive schools and build houses,buy expensive cars with stolen money? How many people are occupying top positions yet they stole the certificates? How many people are successful out there at all costs? HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL BE CROWNED AS KINGS IN HEAVEN FOR BEING FAITHFUL UNTIL THE END?
I PRAY THAT I BE FAITHFUL TILL THE END!!! Please be faithful to God no matter what life throws at you, even if life gives you boiled seed.
Whilst i was growing up, I remember there is this particular song i was taught in church which is called ‘The lord is the captain of my boat’ . The word boat can refer to any form of travelling such as car, air,sea,train etc. I always sing this song like a prayer whenever I am travelling. Below are the words. You can come up with a tune for it. I can tell you, after i sing this song all fear is gone because I know ‘The Lord is in control’.
The Lord is the captain of my boat, and he will drive me safely ( x2)
I will not be afraid, I rejoice in the Lord
For he is the captain of my boat
However strong the storm maybe, and He will drive me safely ( x2)
