A very present moment

20140122-174021.jpg

I can get through this
I will get through this
I am over this

I can face my enemies
I can face my finances
I can face my health processes

I can

I can accept that some relationship may never flourish however there is one relationship that remain eternal

The God who created creation calls me ever so often

Draw nearer

He who created me loves me & believes in me

I also believe in you Peter

I can overcome fear lack rejection because I’m connected to unlimited power

I’m a product of his LOVE the instrument of his peace & an expression of his joy everlasting

Jud 1:24 Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling,
And to present you faultless
Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy.

Dawning of a new day

20131230-215614.jpg

This year has been a major set back for me considering how I started writing with a passion also the intent to establish a new Career for the benefit of my family,unfortunately it didn’t materialise as planned, however
my core in regards to spiritual truth has been challenged throughout the divorce process watching how destructive this severing between us has killed a part of two people who once were one, however the God of all comfort has given me peace also he has taken charge of my life with the assurance that he is the giver of real life which is immaterial & eternal, praise be to the name of JESUS CHRIST now & forever more.
Many thanks to you all who has crossed my path with rebuke correction with joy and praise for the sincere post not to say that one has attained never the less the passion without the excellence of grammar was evident.
My biggest challenge will always be submission to what The Lord now require of me as a single man destined to serve throughout my life experience
& the knowledge of his truth.
Why I’m writing today reflects the dawning of a revelation of the relationship between man & woman

After the fall in the garden every one at the “seen of the crime” had to bear their own conceqences…

Gen 3:16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

The curse in this scripture seem to be a blessing in the sense of governmental order in terms of the family structure however it also shows me two sides of the coin from a male and female perspective from the male view Adam brought himself under the governance of sin or satan in this action of disobedience & the beautiful women eve was now subject to the man’s Authority.
When my wife decided to lye down with
another man she brought herself under the control or rule of this individual from a spiritual view point, from a biblical view can i relate this point?

The Lord said to Cain before he killed his brother “sin desires you but you shall rule other it” Gen 4v7

Our struggle isn’t against flesh & blood
But the ruling powers of wickedness & the unGodly influenced within our social structures from the top down.
In Rom 6 Paul in a non judgemental view articulates this by breaks it down in this teaching

Rom 6:16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

Rom 6:17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.

Rom 6:18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

So now my journey is about being subject to the power of Christ in the midst of a cooked & perverse world whom we now shine as lights as I search for a specific role in his plans & purpose for me as i redefine myself not by some one but who Christ says that I am.

Many blessing with the abounding power of his grace toward you whats left of this year
& the year to come especially for families husbands & wife pastors and leaders, single men & women who know how much we all need The Lord.

Something to watch!!
The sin that lead to death

Jesus taught…

20130327-171036.jpg

Jesus taught his disciples how to pray which was a patten or example that teaches me today about what the priorities of prayer should be.
should prayer begin from the point of honouring the father to forgiven our neighbour even still our enemies looking towards our human needs being meet daily ~ Luke 11

Believers in Christ are considered as citizens of the kingdom of God under a new government which consist of liberating principles that govern community life which also reflects on others in that frame work.
what is seen in religious institutions can be far from the patten or model of a church without walls.
Jesus said ” The kingdom is within you
The kingdom doesn’t come by careful observation, Luke 17:20 what was jesus trying to say?

May be religious culture has taken our attention when the eternal principles of kingdom life should be the only structures unseen physically more like enriching in our hearts socially towards people we come into contact with?

So how does this principle of prayer connect with this kingdom concept?

I guess it goes back to what is priority in the sight of God.
What would you consider a priority people – places – institutions – buildings or things ?

Back to the point of prayer the most prominent word in The Lords prayer was the word “US ” when prayer is only me oriented then the boundaries of prayer are shortened.

The words of the prophet Isaiah

Isa 54:2 “Enlarge the place of your tent, And let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; Do not spare; Lengthen your cords, And strengthen your stakes.

As an example this scripture reminds me not to limit God but rather to prepare for the unexpected.

There are two stories comes to mind about prayer… One is Job and the other is Jabez…
What is so encouraging about their prayers was the fact that “change” of attitude change their own destiny.
When they prayed for the people far or wide in terms of the conflict they experience their request was granted.

In conclusion

Jesus mentions leadership over the evil one & his temptations against the people of God. The father promise he will keep us on this journey because he is alone the kingdom the Glory and all the power we need for ever…Amen.

Fellowship is life

Diary of a man trying to love his wife….


love….

There’s a combination that sum up what love is or making love is…

Ingredients of mutuality common interest & the integrity of trust.

Am I willing to listen to her words beyond sounds that echo’s yet expressed….uhmm the sensation

Feelings beating anxieties biting trying to synchronise anticipating what your saying….

I’m not here to advise you show you rather to flow with you harmonising as the wind flowing

Making love isn’t when two people consent to lying down holding & touching each other rather when words are exchanged entwined smoothly like red wine caressing the back of the throat…..

Maybe the absence dinning you caused love to fade….

No conversation no attention exhausted

Uhmm…inhale
Concealing the outcome as my soul reaches out yet my fist beats the air

so where is my love…

The journey continues….

Do I know my worth Pt3 ~ Mutuality

20130121-100033.jpg

Rom 1:12 That you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith.

One of the defining factors about any relationship is mutuality ~ not that we’ll always agree but we feel strongly about the important things…

The balance between strong views on the important things & an openness to reciprocate what your willing to give is great ground for ~ Mutuality….

•Great innovators need some one’s inspiration….

•The most supportive people ~ also need support

•The greatest thinkers needs some one’s thoughts & idea’s

Mutuality….now I think, I know my worth.

Abrahamic journey pt3

20121130-101053.jpg

So Abram return back to the place of worship at bethel which means “the house of God”
This place was a major landmark for Abram the place where he heard from God for the second time, do you remember where you last hear from God , what was his instruction

After Abraham settles in the land there arises the conflict!

Gen 13:6 The land could not support them while they stayed together, for their possessions were so great that they were not able to stay together.
Gen 13:7 And quarreling arose between Abram’s herdsmen and the herdsmen of Lot. The Canaanites and Perizzites were also living in the land at that time.
Gen 13:8 So Abram said to Lot, “Let’s not have any quarreling between you and me, or between your herdsmen and mine, for we are brothers.

Gen 13:12 Abram lived in the land of Canaan, while Lot lived among the cities of the plain and pitched his tents near Sodom.

Abram a man of so much possessions in the midst of conflict appeared so light handed to evaluate the situation knowing the land was enough for every one to share after to allow lot his nephew to chose. I wonder if Abram was so grateful just to be there? was it enough rather than fighting for more control for the land?

What I’m taking from this first of all Abraham said no ~ we are “brethren”
Meaning he respected the relationship.
The second thing, it was all about Abrahams journey not lot…
Little did lot know his choice would set him up for danger…
Going east towards Ai , while Abram dwelt in the west , canaan the place the lord promised to bless him

It’s frighting to know that some relationships can hinder us hearing from God.

Gen 13:14 The LORD said to Abram after Lot had parted from him, “Lift up your eyes from where you are and look north and south, east and west.
Gen 13:15 All the land that you see I will give to you and your offspring [fn] forever.

In conclusion: The lord says to Abram, take a walk around the land I will give to your descendants, so Abram would conceive the promise in his heart after Abram relocate to a new place called mamre which means strength or fatness, The region known as the plains of Hebron the building block of association with God and his community..

I’m learning that God wants us to enjoy the journey as we grow in character & faith trusting as we receive all the blessings that would accompany us on this amazing walk with the Author and creator of life as we consider the significance of Hebron.
