It's hard, but it's okay. It's lonely, but it's okay. It's stretching, but it's okay. It's uncommon, but it's okay. It's noble and it's okay! It's rewarding and it's okay! It's life-giving and it's okay! It's shame-free and it's okay! It's always okay to stand for TRUTH! - Alethea's Mind
"THAT'S JUST HOW I AM. I DON'T TAKE NONSENSE!!!" We hear these words a lot of times, and we may admire those who live by this mantra as 'no-nonsense' people. We might even want to be like them so that no one will ever take us for granted. But is that the best way? Colossians [...]
For those who have no voice, speak For those who have no strength, lift For those who have no sight, lead For those who have no light, shine! - Alethea's Mind "I, the Lord, command you to do what is just and right. Protect the person who is being cheated from the one who is cheating him. [...]
Today heaven has gained a warrior
I've been on a special journey with the Lord since that grey Monday. On this journey, many walls I have built over the years have been pulled down and layers of veils torn apart as He gently strips me down to the original state He intended when He created me. I wish I can write [...]
Yesterday was . . . But God! And through the darkness, He sang to me, and He still rejoices over me with singing. Today, I share my 'Songs in the Darkness', so I'll never forget His words to my heart . . . and so that you, if you find yourself in the dark, will [...]
Can you smell it? It's in the air, it's everywhere. Can you sense it, sending shivers down your spine? Can you feel it, crawling up your skin like a spider let loose? Can you see it? It's right in front of you. THE MINISTRY OF FEAR They won't tell you that they have an agenda [...]
Tuesday morning.Family devotion.I asked Bumble-Bee to suggest a praise song so we could all sing along. In his usual fashion, he carried his drums sticks and began banging on his drums as he sang his second favourite song:"You're the God of miracles, signs and wonders.We believe in your power, we believe in your power."We all [...]
Be angry but do not sin. Do not let the sun go down on your anger. Ephesians 4:26 Sunset. When the sun goes down, all that remains is darkness. Anger. Every time there is anger, sin lurks in the corner, looking for the opportunity to take over. Darkness. Every work of sin is born in [...]
Hello family. A happy new year to you all, and I hope your year has gotten up to a good start. I've been absent for a while and all for good reasons: to get some clarity on what the Lord would have us do in this year. A lot has been brought to the table [...]
Many years ago, my dad, by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, began designing calendars that carried messages given to him by the Lord for each coming year. These calendars are printed and given out to anyone who cares to have one, and since we can't print and share them with the whole world, we [...]
. . . I knew I couldn't go through with it.
There is a chorus we sing at church that goes like this: "Who has the final say? Jehovah has the final say" Those words have come to mean more to me over these past few days as the accuser of the brethren geared up his armour to war against my peace of mind and my [...]
God is love and He calls us to love. Sue and I have a special relationship, one based on the love of God, and this post is a testimony of that love. I'm so blessed to have been a part of this God-project. No matter what happens in your life, please never forget that YOU [...]
"Why do bad things happen to good people?" If you've never heard this question before, then I believe you have been living on a completely different planet from the rest of us. Anytime there is an accident or disaster that causes pain in one form or the other, that question is thrown about like pebbles [...]
Out of the mouth of babes . . .
If I was there, Jesus, in your days What would be my name? Where would I have stood? Would I be Mary who gave you birth? Or Herod, who sort your death? Would I have travelled like the wise men? Or held the sword across a child's head? If I was there, Jesus, in your [...]
. . . and HIS!
Dan Brown: "God can't survive science" . . . and I do agree.
His betrayer had given them a sign: “The One I kiss, He’s the One; arrest Him!” So he went right up to Jesus and said, “Greetings, Rabbi!” and kissed Him. Matthew 26:48-49 Then one of the Temple guards standing nearby slapped Jesus across the face. “Is that the way to answer the high priest?” he demanded. [...]
