Obama: “We Will Rebuild”

barackobamaTuesday’s address to Congress by President Obama was made to confront the serious economic challenges that the US nation faces. He called for a new era of responsibility and cooperation. The need to look beyond short term political calculations and make vital investments in health care, energy, and education that will make America stronger and more prosperous well into the future were stressed.

Obama’a aim is to rebuild. I believe that none of what Obama spoke about in his address will be achieved if we don not get down on our knees and pray to God.

“Let Go and LET GOD” Series Coming Soon!

i-want-more-of-jesus

I know that’s what I want…

What do you want?

Ever so often, we experience some kind of difficulty and wonder why God has let certain things happen to us. Over time, we realise in the end that God allows certain circumstances in our lives so that His name could be gloried and so that we can grab hold of all the promises he has for us. 

It took me a while to come to grips to losing a baby. Why me? Why not someone who does not want a child? Why not the person who mistreats the children they already have? These and many other questions bombarded my mind for a long time, but after getting closer to God and developing a passion for Him in order to recover, I realised that God saw something great in me; he meant that I should follow Him and He made sure to this, even if it meant that I needed a rough time to come to Him and change my life.

Over the last year, I have made a conscious decision to turn my life to God. After the loss of a child and I had no where to turn. I had loved ones to physically turn to, but no one could remove the mental anguish that was just too much to handle. Nothing could bring back my joy. However, through trusting in God and using his Word as my medicine,  I have conquered the situation and will continue to conquer through His grace. I had to learn to “Let Go and Let God” in order to survive.

Let Go and Let God” is a guide which shows you how to conquer in hard times as well as to overcome evil. The series will seek to encourage you through using the Word (The Bible) as your medicine for physical, mental and emotional sickness.

I have learnt that God cares. He knows our problems, worries and thoughts and He offers some great advice through the Bible. We should never give up because God knows best. If change or happiness does not come, don’t give up. If you don’t under why, don’t give up, because God is working in your life to transform you into a great person.

Stay tuned during the month of March for tips on how to Let Go and Let God take charge. He has been my source of strength during hard times and I am sure if you seek him during your hard times he will also be there for you.

 REMEMBER,LET GO AND LET GOD“!!! 

A Faith Booster from Zig Ziglar

I recently received an email newsletter from Zig Ziglar, including a free motivational piece which I call personally call  a “faith booster“. I immediate copied it and attached it to my personal notice board at work simply becuase it immediately reminded me of the goodness of God and all the things which He promises me. I am sure that when you read it you will be reassured of the strength and blessings that we can acquire through Him.

It’s really a good short piece.

MAY GOD CONTINUE TO BLESS YOU!!!

God Does Not See Your Size (Thin or Fat); He Sees Your Heart

“The other night I was flipping channels and was surprised to come across a broadcast featuring Robert Tilton—the so-called “profit prophet” who was the subject of an ABC Primetime investigation in 1991. Turns out little has changed since then.

Wearing the requisite high-dollar pinstriped suit, there was Mr. Tilton, grinning like a Cheshire cat and enthusiastically promoting his new book How to Be Rich and Have Everything You Ever Wanted, which, by the way, can be yours free of charge TODAY! Um, yeah. Anyway …”

“No host of “Fit Club” angels waiting in the, um, wings. The good news: God does see and care about our struggles—even when it comes to our weight. It’s just that His perspective is different than ours.

While we’re busy obsessing about the outward shape of our bodies, God is looking deeper, into the pain, shame and fear that shape who we are on the inside. This is the stuff He’s concerned about—the stuff He wants to heal.

The truth is, neither riches nor thinness—nor any other human endeavor, for that matter—will ever bring us the happiness we seek. Good thing we know the One who can”

If Job Loss Comes Your Way…

There is a saying: “When America sneezes, the world catches the cold”.

We all have seen, and in some ways, experienced the ripple effect of the world economic breakdown which has already impacted on the economic environment in Barbados. The reality is,  the current situation is sure to cause greater damage. Thousands of people have lost homes and jobs in the United States and London, and we both know that it could be you or me next; only God knows.

We in Barbados have not experienced any significant job loss as a result of the economic world situation,  but we are told that hard times are ahead.

What will you do if you lose your job tomorrow? How will you survive?

Over at Crosswalk.com, Ed Gungor offers some simple and practical advice on how God wants us to handle job loss. He will help us survive any situation.

The good news is that God promises to help us in our financial lives—even when we don’t know where our provision is going to come from. Jesus told the masses in his day (many of whom were unemployed), “Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes” (Mat 6:34 MSG)….Jesus told those who wanted God to help them with their financial need to “seek first his kingdom and his righteousness” (Mt. 6:33). Seeking “his kingdom” is looking for his influence. Seeking “his righteousness” is working hard to do what is right…
