Watching Over His Word

I feel this is how God watches over His word, faithfully and meticulously bringing it to pass; ensuring the word is fulfilled in the perfection of His will. Although from our point of view, we might feel the fulfillment is being delayed, or disrupted. We may feel we have lost time or the opportunity we saw had disappeared. But God, who sees everything beyond what we can see or imagine, He remains in charge and ensures that at the appointed time, His word is fulfilled. His timing is never late or early. He is always right on time. And nothing can change His plans.

I Have A Father!

I have a Father who tells me that I shouldn’t worry about what I will eat and what I will drink and what I will wear. He tells me that it is unbelievers who worry about such. Why? My Father, who takes care of the lilies of the field and of the birds of the air, He will provide for me. I am precious to Him, of more value than many sparrows. He considers me precious. I don’t have to worry. He’s got me covered

Anxiety

Our lives are filled with many uncertain outcomes. We have very little or no control over what happens in the next moment. Hence we tend to be anxious. The Bible tells us not to be anxious about any thing. Instead, we should pray and bring our issues before God. There’s also a promise that in its place, we will have the peace of God. Jesus said which one by worrying can add a cubit to his life? (Luke 12:25). Indeed, we can’t.

Ageing & Memories

Sitting by myself recently, I thought of the reality of depression in old age. Hormones are raging, thoughts are all over the place, life is happening, you’re probably less financially stable than you planned or expected and so on, and so forth. I liken this to the adolescence years. While people can understand and relate to a teenager acting up, this allowance is not available to ageing people. They are expected to know better and do better. But the afflictions they face are real and sometimes totally out of their control.

The Last Quarter!

Isn’t it amazing to realise that we have come to the last quarter of 2019? The days have flown by and we find ourselves trying to take stock of the first nine months of the year. In these parts, this is the time where gloom sets in. Unrealised dreams, unfulfilled promises, dashed hopes. Everything comes to the fore. For some however, it is a happy season. They have a lot to show for the first nine months and are rejoicing at God’s goodness.

Touch Not, Taste Not…

Jesus gave many descriptions or examples of hypocrisy, as was practiced by the scribes and the Pharisees. My example was one of them. Going through Matthew Chapter 23, there are a lot of those examples. The first one was the one that applied to me, found in verse 4:

‘For they bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers’

Loved & Not Alone

There are times in life when we feel so alone, as if we have no one to care for us or look after us. Not because the people don’t exist, but more because at that particular time, we feel like they are far from us and cannot meet the particular need for affection, a listening ear or a warm hug. There are times when I feel like I have over-used the people around me and I just don’t want to bother them. Sometimes it’s because the issue bothering me cannot be discussed freely and I feel scared to open up to people. Whatever the cause, the fact is that at those times, loneliness creeps in quietly and strongly. With no one to turn to for help, what do we do?
