Weet jy waarom jy lewe?

Jesus het presies geweet waarom Hy gelewe het.  "Hiervoor is Ek gebore en hiervoor het Ek na die wereld gekom, met die doel om vir die waarheid getuienis af te le".
Hy het dit oordink, daarvoor gebid, beplan, gewerk, Sy lewe afgele, weer opgestaan en Sy roeping uiteindelik volbring.

Weet jy waarom jy lewe?

Wat doen jy om jou doel te bereik?

"Hy het ons gemaak dat ons die goeie werke wat Hy vir ons bestem het, kan uitlewe" - Efesiers 2:10

Die klink nie na 'n doellose rondwaal nie. Die bybel se " 'n mens beplan sy koers maar die Here bepaal sy bestemming "- Spreuke 16:9. Jy moet goed beplan, maar God se rigting inslaan.

Never !

The will of God will never take you where the grace of God will not protect you.

Character vs suffering


Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls, the most massive characters are secreted with scars...

The desires of my heart


What an amazing Father we serve in deed !

For so many years – in fact, for as long as I can remember, I have always wanted long hair but never could have - my hair is very fine and battles to grow.  And for all these years – since I was a little girl, I have had this secret desire in my heart to one day being financially able to have human hair extensions weaved into my hair.

Then for the last couple of months I have been searching the web, getting the cheapest possible quotes and then… got one , then finally decided last week, I am going to do it!

My excitement knows no end, I dream long hair, I eat long hair… I am on top of the world.  So I started praying, God let it look nice, let my husband fall in love with me all over again (nothing wrong with surprising my fabulous hubby with a ‘new wife’ hahaha), let me not struggle with it, help me to maintain it, oh God!

Then my wonderful Father even went one step ahead…. And surprised me BY PAYING FOR IT!

Oh Jesus thank-You-thank-You-thank-You!!

From a very thankful daughter J

How do I invite Jesus into my heart?


Pray this simple prayer and believe ...

Jesus I have sinned against You and I ask You for Your forgiveness. I really need You in my life. I believe You are the Son of God. Please Lord, accept me as Your child.

In Jesus Name I pray

Amen

My brand-name clothes

I will wear forgiveness like a crown

Every single morning is a new beginning



No matter what wrong we did yesterday; the abortion we have had, the bad choices, the money we lost in gambling... no matter the wrong turn we made, the Word says, His Mercies are new every morning. Every single morning.

But we must apologize to our Father, repent of our sinful ways. And strive towards living a holy life...

God says that He is slow to anger... and rich in love.

And I believe Him.
If God says is, that settles it.

And therefore I know, when I sincerely apologize, and ask for His forgiveness, I know ~ without a shadow of doubt ~ that I am forgiven. And with that powerful knowledge in my mind and spirit I have full confidence again when I pray or just speak to my Father again.

 I don't feel guilty because I believe every word He says.

Love love love

The surest way to find God is not to make Him a private possession, a problem solver, or an instant consolation in time of need, but rather by opening to love.



The Apostle John said that.  He said: 'God is love, and anyone who lives in love is living with God and God is living in him. 

Rev. John Powell, Professor, Loyola University, Chicago

Treatments vs the Beginning

I have Just read an article about the various types of spa treatments for women…  but not the relaxing, spoiling, ever fabulous spa treatments that immediately comes to mind. This is for your vagina.
Vajacial is a 50 minute ‘facial’.  A certain Wax Bar describes it as ‘giving your crotch the best non-orgasmic experience you can image’. This Vajacial involves four steps: cleansing, exfoliation, extracting ingrown hairs and a calming, anti-freckle, anti-acne masking and lightening cream.
Another word that got my attention is Vattooing  - a temporary tattoo for your vagina.
The more I kept thinking about this the more I felt a deep sense of sadness in my spirit.  What has happened to women that we resort to extreme practices like these? Why are we buying into this at all?
Yes we are emotional and sexual beings, but it is almost as if we have triggered something – created a monster of some sort - where we not only accept but invite the most perverse and lustful  spirits into our ourselves, our homes!
Why are we doing this? Allowing this? Taking part in this?  Have women become so occupied with their sexuality that they need to ‘sell’ themselves by the means of their vaginas?  Is this maybe the only way they are able to attract attention… and hold it?   
Another phenomenon that the world clings to is sex toys.  Vibrators, rubber penis’s, porn films… You need to understand that these little extras that you bring into your marriage are nothing less than a 3rd person.  God created men and women to have sex with one another. Not with one another and another thing… or another person.
When God created a wife for Adam, He only created one wife and called her Eve.  Not Steve. Nor did He create two wives….with a little extra.
What happened to the good all days where your husband and the romance between you and him was more than enough to keep the love flame burning for 50 years?  That the only “extra’s” you needed was maybe a candle and music to enrich the mood? 
Go back to the beginning, and start building on the love and respect you have had for one another – invite Jesus into your marriage, and once that is in place the love flame will burn high again.  Guaranteed. 
You came into this world with a guarantee.  The Bible.  If anything goes wrong, or does not work anymore – like the dying fire in you, your marriage, your relationships, go back to the Guarantee and ask the Manufacturer to ‘fix’ you… like He created you in the Beginning.  Same with your marriage… go back to the Beginning.
