Thank you

First let me apologise for any typo you may find here,  I just spent 2hours+ writing this and I'm too spent to proofread this long post.

Deep Sigh. Today is the last day of the year 2013 and since the year began to draw to a close, I haven't thought of this year without the Words "FROM GRASS TO GRACE" popping up in my mind and spirit.

Truly, God has brought me from dirt to glory. He has removed me from the grass and en-graced me. He has washed me clean and clothed me with the robe of righteousness, one I am very unworthy to wear but for His Grace and His LOVE.

I started this year being in dirt, I was seriously filthy (i'm still really filthy though). My life was one with endless episodes of stupidity, drama and absurdity. Right now, I can laugh at how dumb I was but then it wasn't funny at all - it was my life, I was liking it, living it and I was draining.
Oh! I had given my life to Christ months before but I wasn't life the Christ-like life. I'd cagbash in tongues today in church and immediately I get home I forget whose presence I had come from.
A couple of times, I'd cry and beg God to help pudge me of the ish, I'd feel PEACE and empowered to overcome but five seconds later, I'm back where I left off.

PEACE of mind and heart

Being someone that easily gets depressed (a situation I get from being a melancholic - but you know I read somewhere that geniuses have the tendency to get overly depressed, hehehe! I'm just saying tho *wink*), I have learnt to appreciate the times where my heart is at rest and I have peace of mind.
Discovering the joy and warmness that is embedded in the having peace, I began to search for how I can attain a Lasting peace as I became tired of the mood swings - the joy today and  weight tomorrow; the peace today and the chaos tomorrow and as always, in the midst of my search Jehovah found me (as always. the guy is just super dope yea?) and taught me that peace of mind and heart is a necessity in the life of a believer as we cant function well or enjoy life or the Joy of our salvation if we are troubled and he said he's possible for one to have Peace 24/7, everyday of every week of every year, forever even in the midst of the worst of storms.

The lessons I have learnt on Peace is what I want to share with you on this post. So relax and enjoy the ride.

Jesus isn't the Reason for the Season.

I Just read something very amazing and I just couldn't help but share it with you.

It's simple: Jesus isn't the only Reason for the Season, YOU (and I) also is THE REASON for the season.

If God Hadn't loved You, Jesus wouldn't have been born. If You (and I) hadn't needed to be saved, If our sins weren't keeping us from God's Presence, Jesus wouldn't have been born.

Jesus was Born because You (and I) needed to be saved, Because GOD LOVED YOU (and I).

You and (I) are so important, We are so Precious, that Jesus - the Only Begotten son of God - had to be born as Man and then had to Die the death Of a criminal because Of YOU (and I).

Today is Christmas, The celebration Of the Birth of Jesus, the Proof Of God's immense Love for US. Today, God remembers the Reason He sent His Son to Earth - US.

Celebrate Jesus, Celebrate Love, Celebrate Yourself - You are worth the Blood of Jesus.

I'm grateful for God's love.

I learnt this Truth few minutes ago after Reading Bella's Post --»

Merry Christmas.

PS: I couldn't resist personalizing this truth (by adding the (and I) part after every YOU), i just wanted it to sink in deep in my spirit too *wink wink*

When a Son takes the place of a slave

I belong to the LA Family on twitter. It's a study group which L-Learns and A-Applies the Bible Teachings.
Today we were to study the book of Galatians, chapters 3 and 4.
One of the prominent lessons the Holy Spirit taught me today as I studied is what I want to share with you all.
Be Blessed.

Gal 4:1 " Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all" KJV
"...If a Father dies and leaves great wealth for his little son,that child is not much better off than a slave until he grows up, even though he actually owns everything his father had" TLT (the living translation)

Where your heart is ...

Hey loves, how have you guys been? I'm sorry I've been AWOL, I had my issues to sort out but that's a story for another day.

So, I didn't start doing anything (chores and all) today until about 5pm (thank God mum travelled, otherwise I for cry) because I was reading a book. I woke up, checked my twitter and somewhere on my TL someone mentioned the book 'The Alchemist' by Paulo Coelho, I then remembered that a friend of mine told me one time to go read the book, so I quickly went to search for the pdf to download.
I found it, downloaded and opened it, just browse through (just to browse through ooo, that's like read the 1st few pages to see if it will be worth my while) but somehow I ended up reading the whole book and only took a break one time (which led to sleeping) to rest my eyes.

Anyway, amongst the plenty lessons I learnt, there was one very prominent one.
It says "Where your heart is, there your treasure is OR where your treasure is, there your heart will be" { Matt 6:21, luke 12:34}

Live... At The Experience 2013

... At one point during The Experience, Don Moen made us worship God in a whole new way with him playing the keyboard and later, the violin.
A couple of other artistes had performed before him. I enjoyed worshipping God with their songs but amidst the "enjoyment", I had a couple of questions niggling my head and they became stronger when Donnie McClurkin was performing...

  •          What is that thing so special about our God that will make thousands of people from all works of life assemble in a historic ground simply to praise and worship Him?

  •          What is that thing so special about our God that makes knees so weak when worship that we don't know when they bow to the ground?

  •          What is that thing so special about our God that tears flows when true worship is going on?
