Perhaps you came
with your gingerbread skin
and pearly smile
into my wounded life
to show me
that love doesn’t have
to be exhausting,
but rather, nourishing.
not my karma,
the payback of all the times
I didn’t love
someone who loved me.
Perhaps you’re the wind
blowing away my doubts of love
like last year’s leaves —
a wildness meant to inspire
but not to stay.
Good Evening Dear,
Sometimes in life it happens, situation comes when you just standing alone in the dark, having no hopes , it happened to me in life, i got courage from “lord himself” with abundance of love , made me understand what life is exactly , finally i lost myself within him forever.
Some people says real people get real hurt .
When i listen this video , it hurts very deeply, no words but pain inside my heart and crying.
Do spend little time listening to this video of lord, very heart touching and it make you feel the importance of lord in our life.
What value the most in my life is “Lord” .
Never give up if you standing alone in dark.
Thank you so much for sharing your time .
My love of life is lord.
God bless everyone!

Such Love You Freely Give
Much Love you have Shown
Such Kindness is Rare
Love is the Ultimate Sacrifice
So much You Bear
Love Makes All the Difference
You Put it All on The Line
Love is not Respecter of Person
You Serve Others with such Patience and Grace
Giving of your Heart and Time
It is Apart of Who You Are
A Beautiful Gift
Your Words, Your Deeds will Ever Be Remembered
God’s Light Truly Shines Through You
The Time rendered, the time shared is Priceless.
I’m truly thankful to God for You
The great rivers of Life are in the power of the Lord. And they carry headlong all those who despise Him: and entangle their paths. They sweep away their banks. (they know no boundaries to the damage they can cause). Their flooding catches the bodies (of weak, sinful ones) and destroy their lives. For they (Life’s trials, tribulations, and hardships) are more swift than lightning and more aggressive. Those who cross (meet them) in faith are not moved (troubled or distressed); And all those who walk on them without blemish (in purity) shall not be afraid. For the lesson in them is what the Lord has done. All who cross (meet) them in faith are not moved. (troubled or distressed). Put on, therefore, the name of the Lord (Jesus Christ), and know Him. Then, you shall cross them without danger, for the rivers (and seas) will be subject to you…

The Book of Proverbs
You can’t Miss
God is our “Refuge” (Psalm 142:5). In His “mercy”, He leads us in His way. He protects us and rescues us from our enemies (Psalm 143:8-9). The Lord, “the One in whom we take refuge”, is described by the Psalmist as “my Rock… My merciful One, my Fortress, my Stronghold, my Saviour, my Shield” (Psalm 144:1-2). The Lord is “great.” He is to be praised “every day.” He is to be praised “forever and ever” (Psalm 145:1-3).
The Importance Of Obedience In Our Christian Race
The importance of obedience even in our daily lives cannot be overstated; you can imagine the chaos if drivers ignore the traffic signs, and just do whatever they think is right. Or imagine the impending doom if a factory worker neglects the rules of operating a machine and decided to use his guts to operate the device. In essence, obedience is, especially in our Christian race. Just the way you are helping yourself and not the government by obeying traffic rules is the same way you are helping yourself when you obey God.
God’s intention for your family
Imagine how happy a family will be if everyone obeys God’s words respectively. Ephesians 6:1 “Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.”
The above verse shows how God wants children to behave in a family; He knows parents know better…

Is your worship what God requires
Are their flames in your heart burning for Christ
Are you singing what he wants to hear
Or what’s familiar or popular in your ears
Did you know that worship
Is more than a performance
But how we love The Lord
In unity and harmony
How we treat each other
Our sister and our brother
Is a reflection of our praise
and our worship
We need true repentance for true deliverance
and forgive as Christ has forgiven us
Worship is a lifestyle
not a formality
Let’s give God
All the Glory
So I will give you all my worship
I will give you all my praise
You alone I love to worship
You alone are all my praise

Christ came as the awaited Messiah who would occupy David’s throne. This passage reflects the expectation that he would be a global King, whose rule would extend over all the earth.
While the Jewish hope that the Messiah would literally live in Jerusalem in a restored palace wasn’t realized, Christ does reign as a King. He rules over nations through the Gospel. And his authority extends from China to Australia, from Africa to South America.
Wherever individuals, families, and nations submit to the gospel, they come under his rule. And ‘he will have dominion from sea to sea, and from the River to the ends of the earth’ (v.8)
But he is not merely a powerful King, he is a compassionate one. He is a ruler who cares for the oppressed, feeds the hungry, and heals the sick. We saw him do this while on earth,and he continues…

Background scripture: Jeremiah 12
“So Jeremiah, if you’re worn out in this footrace with men, what makes you think you can race against horses” (Jeremiah 12:5, MSG)?
This week has been a rough one. My patience and faith have definitely been tested. I’ve been feeling a little like Jeremiah lately. Not really understanding how people could be mean and cruel, but still prosper. Why were these people bothering me? But as God reminded Jeremiah, He reminded me. Challenges prepare you for the next level. Challenges stimulate growth and if you back away from the challenge how can you be a more refined, faith enlarged, warrior for Christ?! You see, the enemy knows the Word just like we do. He knows how to twist and manipulate God’s Word. He also knows our weaknesses. But remember the Lord never tempts us, but He will allow us to be tested (James 1:13, NIV)…

As I prayed each passing day, to have him heal, to have God remove his pain, to wish upon him the return and the love of his children, God was healing me, blessing me, and returned me to the original plan he had set out for me. As I fought Gods plan, yet prayed that it came to volition, my scales were removed, and I was set free, but in the while, I lost the man I loved, to a disease, to a lie created by the forces that hate God’s creation. I weep daily for the many souls who are taken by this affliction, the lie of all lies, the death of all deaths.

Are you walking through a time in your life where you feel so ALONE, like no one could possibly understand the burdens you are carrying?

The following is my short insight into this topic. The Way of God is the way of all goodness, and goodness in ALL. Hence, only in this way is God seen ‘in all His works’. These are “the paths of righteousness.” And in observing, beholding, contemplating upon His works one sees the beauty and majesty of God displayed there. This is what is meant by ‘seeking God’s face’. Jesus Christ Himself could rightly say: “If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.” John 11:37-38. May we too ‘seek God’s face’ by contemplating His Beauty and Majesty as displayed in all His works. Prayer Almighty, all wise, and loving Father of Heaven and Earth. We…

It isn’t always easy to believe in an invisible God; it isn’t always easy to know how an inaudible God is speaking or guiding us. If God was more visible or audible, wouldn’t our spiritual journey be easier? Jesus established a 24-7 relationship with twelve men and they struggled to believe everything that came out of Jesus’ mouth. Today, God’s awing or overpowering presence may only lead to fearful obligations to obey. I am convinced the road traveled of learning and reflecting better leads to lasting convictions. Maybe God speaks to us in non-dramatic ways out of love!
We are right to look for God’s direction through God’s spirit.
It is reasonable to imagine that since God is invisible that God’s Spirit resides in us and somehow guides us. There is rightly an emphasis in Christian circles that God guides up by their Spirit as opposed to…

Yes!! I love this verse, and the realization that God has a plan and purpose for each and every one of us and a specific way and perfect time to bring it all to pass.
According to ( Isaiah 55.8 ) God’s thoughts are not our thoughts, and his ways are not our ways.
Whatever you are trusting god with, whatever steps you are taking, know that they are the safest route to your future. Because even when we don’t understand, we can trust God is ordering them purposely forward.

In the beginning there were two groups of people.
First there were the Have-More(s). They were an interesting group of people. They felt right. They felt better. They felt they knew everything. In fact, they were so sure of what they knew, they knew they knew they were more than everyone else and therefore it was meant they should have more than everyone. Hence being the Have-More(s). It just felt right.
Then came the Have-Less(es). The Have-Less(es) were a wonderful group of people. They spent all their time worrying about love and fun and joy. They were always having a good time. No matter the less the Have-Less(es) found themselves to be in possession of, it was always just what they needed.
The Have-More(s) were a tricky bunch of people. The Have-More(s) could never decide what they needed to have more of. They always felt there was something to found…

If I am lost in the blowing grasses,
If I wander from the path,
I am in your hands, time.
And in them there is a stillness,
Where light becomes animate,
Like little lost pieces of a former self.
Where bones fall and whiten.
Where palm-sized animals go to burrow
In the darkness of the black, living earth.
Where stones rise speckled with bright
And ancient lichens,
Drifting from rock island to rock island
Where roots cling and flowers find purchase,
Each tiny paradise and enclave,
A world unto itself,
A land that I discover,
Lost in time and seen by no one as I see it,
I make it mine by this act of my loving,
I enter into the folds of time and
For awhile I do surrender,
Finally letting go,
The meaning of faith.

The Bible Summed Up in Four Words
“Let there be light!” (Gen_1:3)
In the beginning, God said, “Let there be light!” These four words sum up the entire Bible. Everything that follows this first sentence, does so to serve the purpose of fulfilling it. When God said, “Let there be light” – He made a decree that has not been rescinded unto this day.
His will is that we see a revelation of His love in everything He has made, in everything He says, and in everything He does. That we come to know Him by being loved by Him and loving Him in return.
The Garden in which our First Parents were placed was a revelation of God’s love for them. The bounty of His blessings and the nearness of His presence provide lavish proof of His love. The paradise from which we have fallen, and unto which we…

“Praise the Lord!” (Psalm 104:1).
We have come here to praise the Lord. Why do we praise the Lord? “Lord my God, You are very great.” God is great in power. His power can impress us, but it will not save us until we are touched by a special power – the power of His love. God is great in holiness. His holiness (Isaiah 6:3) shows us our sin (Isaiah 6:5). It’s His love that brings us salvation (Isaiah 6:7). When we see the greatness of His love, we can truly say, “Praise the Lord.”
And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose — Romans 8.28
When Joseph was pushed down the pit by his brothers, his heart was gripped by fear, despair, anger, tears, disappointment — “How could this be? Why me? What did I do wrong? Why has God abandoned me?” What Joseph didn’t know is that the pit was the necessary pathway to God’s promises…He had to be lowered in HUMILITY in order to be elevated in AUTHORITY!

As a society, we don’t generally see extroverts as the intellectuals, the artists or the creative types, or as people who pursue goals in areas which are (wrongly, in my opinion) stereotyped as “quiet”. We often see extroverts as frivolous, lowbrow party animals — or at least as “friendly” and “people-oriented”. The truth is, extroverts are simply energized from being among people, while introverts tend to recharge in solitude.
Although I am very extroverted, I was not always aware of it, as I am not a people person or a party animal at all. Rather, I am a task-oriented, choleric-tempered, Type A person of excessive extremes, who needs a high level of eustress in the same sense that everyone else needs air.

To pay for this massive expansion in the burden of government spending, some advocates have embraced “Modern Monetary Theory,” which basically assumes the Federal Reserve can finance new boondoggles by printing money.
I debated this issue yesterday on CNBC. Here’s a clip from that interview.
Wow, this Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) reminds me of the old joke about “I can’t be out of money. I still have checks in my checkbook.”
I don’t know how far Ms. Kelton would go with this approach. I know from previous encounters that she’s a genuine Keynesian and thus willing to borrow lots of money to finance a larger public sector. But her answer at 2:45 of the interview also suggests she’s okay with using the Federal Reserve to finance bigger government.

If you’ve been watching the news recently, you may be aware that tensions between India and Pakistan are at an all-time high, following a terrorist attack on Indian military forces in Kashmir, Indian strikes in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, and Pakistan’s capture of an Indian pilot. I’m not here to offer any political analysis, but something I have noticed on Twitter and other social media is jingoistic, hypermasculine nationalism, calling for strong military responses on both sides.
Caught in the middle, as has been in the case for too long, are the voices of Kashmiris — the people who are most affected by conflict between these two nuclear powers. Let’s not forget that Kashmir is the most militarized region in the world, and for decades Kashmiris have been unable…

Anyone who called for Marco Rubio to suffer Gaddafi’s fate would probably be arrested on the spot. From Caitlin Johnstone at caitlinjohnstone.com:
Influential US Senator and 2016 presidential candidate Marco Rubio has tweeted a blatant death threat and incitement of violence against Venezuelan president Nicolás Maduro. As of this writing the post has 13 thousand shares and counting.
The tweet consists of a “before” and “after” photo of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, who in 2011 was mutilated to death in the streets following a US-led NATO intervention in Libya which was launched on false humanitarian pretexts. The first photo depicts Gaddafi alive and confident with a smile on his face, the second depicts him covered in blood following his capture by a militia group minutes before his death.

A couple really good columns on this a couple weeks ago.
First, Jamelle Bouie:
Next came the president’s address to Congress. And this week at a rally in El Paso, Tex., Trump went after the “radical left,” blasting a caricature of progressive climate policies. “I really don’t like their policy of taking away your car, of taking away your airplane flights, of ‘Let’s hop a train to California,’” he said, bizarrely adding that under the Green New Deal resolution introduced by liberal Democrats, “You’re not allowed to own cows anymore.”
The clear expectation is that many or most Americans will recoil at any hint of “socialism,” either on principle or because of its association with Venezuela, which the administration has tried to elevate as a major adversary. That might have been true in Trump’s cultural and political touchstone, the 1980s, when Ronald Reagan’s hard-line anti-Communism defined American foreign and domestic policy…

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States sent two Navy ships through the Taiwan Strait on Monday as the U.S. military increased the frequency of movement through the strategic waterway despite opposition from China.
The voyage risks further raising tensions with China but will likely be viewed by self-ruled Taiwan as a sign of support from the Trump administration amid growing friction between Taipei and Beijing.
The movement comes as U.S. President Donald Trump said the United States and China were “very, very close” to a deal to end a months-long trade war that has slowed global growth and disrupted markets.
The U.S. Navy’s passage through the Taiwan Strait also came just days before a summit between Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un.
“The ships’ transit through the Taiwan Strait demonstrates the U.S. commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific,” the U.S. Pacific Fleet said in a…

Yes, there were times when I dreamed about it. I thought about it. I visualized it. But every time I went to take a step something would stop me.
When’s the last time you set out to accomplish a goal? You were determined to lose weight, get in shape, go back to school, start a business or look into new job opportunities. You thought about it. You talked about it. But, when you went…
