You Are What You Speak

Have you ever noticed that the way you speak match the right person you are? yah, words have power. The tongue, even though among the smallest of all the members of the body (James 3:5) can do the most damage.  I remember hearing words like “You can’t do that.  You’ll never amount to nothing.  You are so worthless” and those words stuck long and went deep.  The old saying “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me” is completely untrue.  Wounds from sticks and stones can heal but often words wound us deeper than any superficial wounds and are sometimes next to impossible to heal.

TRUE LOVE

For so long I have basically molded myself into what someone else wanted me to be. Basically someone else’s version of love to only receive nothing.

 

The truth is, these people were incapable of loving me the way I wanted to be love. Mostly because let’s face it they didn’t believe in what I do. (more…)

TRUE LOVE

A young boy sits next to his little sister in their bedroom. As she is hiding her face in his arms, he asks himself, what is love? He thought parents were supposed to love each other.

A teenage girl is lying on the bathroom floor. Through the tears she can barely see the razor, let alone the marks on her leg. She shouts to the empty air, what is love? She felt as if she had nobody to show her.
A woman is picking out another long-sleeved shirt to wear at work in July. She does it to hide the bruises that she has to face every day, bringing her to ask, what is love? She is beginning to believe that this is it.
It’s a question that seems to be as old as existence itself. What is love?
Many people spend their entire lives searching for it, turning up hardened hearts and crushed spirits. We expel all of our energy running towards material things such as money, clothes, or cars, hoping to find love in that. Matthew 6:19-21 advises us not to build up material things while we’re living on earth. They are merely temporary. Money runs out, clothes tear, and cars deteriorate. We also run to societal standards like status, beauty, or jobs. We think that maybe, just maybe, I’ll love myself and receive love when I’m this and I have that. Just as verse 21 says, we can’t take those things to Heaven with us. It’s not true love after all, and it shouldn’t be our priority.
Others beg for God to show them. When we fall upon the feet of Jesus, we see that He is love. It’s easy to become used to hearing about what Jesus did, especially during the Easter, as silly as that sounds. But it happens, and when you truly think about it–about the beating, mocking, loneliness, all of it–you see His love and His sacrifice. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, so that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Humans are the closest thing you can get to true love. We can love deeply and hard. Oh, how imperfect we are, though. Each one of us sins, makes mistakes, is selfish, the list goes on and on. However, we can look to Jesus, the end-all-be-all epitome of love, and make it a daily endeavor to be like Him.

At the end of the day, this age old question isn’t hard to find after all. All we must do is look to Him for a true love that will persevere. When you are down and out or simply need to be reminded, repeat these three sentences to yourself: Jesus is love. Jesus sacrificed His life for me. Therefore, love equals sacrifice.

RELIGION IS MAN MADE…SPIRITUAL IS NOT!

An easy definition of religion is that religion is man’s try to reach God. Being spiritual is opening ourselves to God’s impact on our entire being. Let us see the difference between these aspects.
Religion focuses on what pleases man. Being spiritual focuses on what pleases God. In our generation, what we see people do is what they believe to be right according to their religion. A lot of changes are made to what is spiritual in the eyes of the lord to suit a religion. People do amazing things; artist create the best art. Poets, writers and singers play with words to soothe their souls all in the name of religion. People tend to choose churches through their size, location, and visibility inside the community. Part of this judgment is how properly the minister of the church entertains the congregation. A great speaker can bring a lot of people into the church as long as he does not offend and brings lots of humour to his listeners. The mega churches of our day are groups that have found out this formulation and do it properly. 
The New Testament indicates spirituality as a vivid alternative to religion. John the Baptist and Jesus did not come to the world as smooth-talking, sharp-dressing, aesthetically-attractive individuals. Paul worked as a tentmaker and Peter turned into a fisherman. The early Christians were not the wheelers and dealers of their time. 
Religion follows man’s requirements whilst spirituality follows God’s requirements.
Religion involves feelings and externals while spirituality includes the complete being. Religion has a tendency to tell humans to react to their emotions and express them visibly. In In today’s modern times, there’s an emphasis on wearing things that angry individual express their convictions and doing things which are dominated by using their feelings. This is done by preacher who don’t teach these people how to stay motivated even when they are alone
Spirituality involves one’s total self in their relationship withGod. The Christians in 2 Corinthians 8: 3-6 have been identified by means of Paul as being of special spiritual nature due to the fact they gave themselves to God. The image we get of church inside the first century is not of entertaining preachers in fancy homes, but human beings assembly collectively regularly in houses–sharing their burdens and needs and supporting one another within the demanding situations of everyday existence.
While we look at the teaching of Jesus and the apostles, we see very little appeal to feelings. Jesus used parables which required His listeners to suppose and purpose. A lot of His coaching was to have His situation country an understanding after which He would complicated on it. Paul spent over a year at a school (Acts 19:9) and reasoned with the human beings in terms where they may think. Whilst he saw the artefacts of worship on Mars Hill in Acts 17:28, he declared God to be a God in whom we stay and pass and feature our being.

RESPECT YOUR BODY FOR CHRIST

Respect your body for Christ 
1 Corinthians 6:12-20 gives us great examples of what God says about the importance of your body to His word. Today I want to take you through the verses of this scripture to show you how important your physical health makes a big part of your spiritual life. 

Verse 12: “All things are lawful for me, but not all things are helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be dominated by anything.” Our bodies are a gift from God and he has given them to us for a reason therefore we have to use it according to His will.
Verse 13: “Food is meant for the stomach and the stomach for food and God will destroy both one and the other. The body is not meant for sexual immortality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.” Our bodies are the sole property of the Lord therefore they have to be used for His glory.
Verse 14: “And God raised us up by His power.” Our bodies are a temple of God therefore one day He will resurrect your body and give you a better version of yourself.
Verse 15 & 18“Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ. Shall I then take the members of a prostitute? Never. Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.” In God’s eyes sin against the body is the worst kind because He considers the body as His precious treasure. Our bodies are connected to Christ, we have to respect it.
Verse 19&20: “Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.” This is my favourite verse because it goes straight to the point. Our bodies are not ours, but Gods because he bought them by giving up His one and only begotten son. What more can we ask for.
With all that being said. I just wanted you to see that you are valuable, you are a treasure. Keep your body is great shape and honour God.

LOVE LIKE GOD



LOVE LIKE GOD AND YOU WILL GO FAR
God is Love! His love is unconditional. He is forgiving and never holds grudges. His love is everlasting and comforting. His love can make us do well; it make Jesus feed the hungry, comfort the distressed, heal the sick, teach the multitude and raise the dead.
God’s love is tender and cares for the needs of others and it is not choosy and never finds it difficult to get along with others. So if you find it difficult to get along with some people or they rub you the wrong way, you better start look to God to give you the strength to begin to love them. Ask God to give you the eyes to look at yourself and others in the same way that He looks at you. God has forgiven us and shows us His unconditional love by dying for us on the cross. Why do we have to let the devil get to us and lead our lives in the opposite way to what our Father wants for us.
God lives in us, we are complete because His love is perfect, it is peaceful, patient and kind. This is what we need to remind ourselves of when the devil tries to attack us by confusing us about the things our father has forgiven us for. We should claim the forgiveness and righteousness of God with faith, this way we will not be affected by the work and the accusations of the devil. 
Instead of hating and criticising each other, we should pray for each other. Ask God to fill us all with the Holy Spirit and love to see through the hate that has been created amongst us. LetGod work through you, let Him use your words, your smile and your patience to express His love for His people. 
You will see your life changing, you will see more miracles and receive more blessing for being a faithful and truthful servant of God.

PERFECT MATCH



Woman are made from mans rib therefore there is a perfect match for everyone because God said so
“And the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a companion who will help him.” 
Have you ever felt like if God doesn’t bring you your soulmate then you won’t be able to get married? God does have only one right person for you because without His Grace, there would not be any marriage in the first place. God reigns over all of mankind and all of creation. He even has control over what we do. But he doesn’t control us. He allows us to do what we want and later we will be held responsible for our actions. Yet he still reigns over all things. 
With all that being said, you don’t have to wait for God to hand you a husband. You have to pray for wisdom so that you can be able to choose the perfect partner. Meditate on His work and pray for understanding of His word and His views about marriage and what He designed married to be.  When our prayers for a husband are shaped by God’s words, we can pray confidently knowing that we are praying according to God’s will. It means you can ask God for the ability to discern the relationships His grace bring into your life. 
God knows everything and everyone even our thoughts and who we are supposed to be with. But He won’t hand you over the person you want. Therefore you can dare but according to the laws of the bible. 
“Women were created from the rib of man to be beside him, not from his head to top hi, nor from his feet to be trampled by him, but from under his arm to be protected by him, near to his heart to be loved by him.”  – Matthew Henry, An exposition of the old and new testament.
