Keeping Focused


Life is tough. Sometimes life can be a bit too tough! The pressure mounts, the stress leaves you sleepless, your natural panic-mode kicks in and you feel drained of energy at the end of the day.

I had a few weeks of that this month. Sometimes it feels like you just do not want to deal with all the responsibilities of life. But did you know that there is one thing worse than any and all of these feelings combined?

If, in the middle of your rushed and stressful life, you forget about God – THAT, my friend, is the worst that can happen. I almost did. When I started staying up late to get my studying done, I would crash and go straight to sleep, just to wake up early and start all over again. This cycle, I found out very quickly, is so unhealthy, both to your physical, as well as your spiritual self.

You spirit needs God. Your soul craves God. This is true whether or not you believe it! Our bodies are temporary and come from this earth, but our soul , that came straight from God, and no matter how well you think you’re multi-tasking or setting aside breaks for yourself, if you don’t allow yourself some time in the day to reconnect with your Creator, you are doing yourself harm as well as distancing yourself from the One Who loved you before you were even born!

There is a sense of peace that comes over you when you go to Him and tell Him your needs. You know He hears you and He speaks to your heart with words of wisdom and peace.

And that constant guarantee that there is someone up there that loves me unconditionally, to Whom I can pray about anything and everything and rest knowing that my prayers were heard, to know He is handling my life for me while I catch a little bit of sleep for the night, that is the best feeling in the world!!!

“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:7)

“The Kindest Eyes” Poem


A crown of thorns upon His head
Adorns His face in crimson blood.
His clothes, a pile of rags be dyed
In painful shades of sinless red.

I peek between the many men
That crowd around this man condemned
Whilst try my best to catch a glimpse
Of Who this man be, standing hemmed

And see beneath the blood and tears
And wounds and scars repulsive, oh!
A pair of eyes that gaze at me
And in that chaos, kindness show.

Those eyes doth gaze, my soul, within
And sift my thoughts in search of love.
And rather than to find their goal,
Do find a sinner’s heart thereof.

And as I doth stand quiescent there,
Caught in a gaze at those two eyes,
Yes, oh! Those eyes be pearls of wine –
I hear a thousand rising cries.

Some cry of death to be His fate
Some other cries do echo hate
And only few request to free
This man Whose eyes still gaze at me.

And then a voice is heard that talks
Of not a kinder word to hear,
A judgment falls of death on a cross
At which the mob does echo cheer.

I wish to not mere blink as if
I might lose sight of my soul, its root
But then I wonder with a sigh,
“Does He not wish the least to refute?”

And then as though an answer sent
He looks once more, mine eyes in sight,
And feels my soul, a song of sweet
That tells me “Do not worry dear”.

And then as though a sack at hand
They push and shove this man away
And at that very moment, sad,
My heart resounds of a sinner’s pray.

-Stenila Simon

 

When will you be satisfied?


We are too occupied following our worldly goals, reaching out for what we believe is the best for us.

Whether this be an education, a promotion at work, or even money itself – we are always chasing after what will make us comfortable. And the worst part is, we are never satisfied.

You study to get a job. Once you get that job,  you are rushing for better positions within that company. Once you reach your work goals, now you’re running after your house, a new car, a new spouse, etc. Once you reach that, you are running after securing a better future for your children/family, or perhaps a better retirement. Once you reach that, what else do you have to live for? Will you feel like you have no further purpose and let yourself slowly die away?

When you look back at the end, will you be truly happy for what you have spent your whole life doing? Will you look back and think that all those endless days and nights of hard work were worth it? Was it worth it to work hard just to reach your next job where you kept working harder, for your own self? Was it worth it to spend your whole life struggling in this vicious cycle just so you could “enjoy” a comfortable life, only to realize that you were never really able to truly enjoy it?

Let me tell you, no worldly dream will ever satisfy you the way you think it will. Once you reach each of these goals, you will find out that your human heart keeps desiring more and more, and that nothing you can do will ever truly satisfy you.

However, there is one thing that can satisfy you even when you have reached nowhere in life – that is God. I learned this the hard way!

Not too long ago, I was once caught up planning a big future for myself. I thought of all the endless possibilities, and started motivating myself to work hard with these goals in mind. But soon enough, I felt empty. When I felt tired, I had nothing to tell myself that would keep me going. In such moments, you realize how much you need God in your life, and how important it is to find rest in Him when you can.

If you keep worldly things as your only aim, like money, fame, a better life, etc., you will soon run out of fuel and motivation, and you will drift away from God. You will never feel accomplished. However, once you realize that living for a bigger purpose than yourself is more important, then life starts having new meaning.

Living with the purpose of serving God, remembering that you are put on earth for the purpose of uplifting other people’s lives at any cost, and knowing that you are moving forward with the aim of changing the world one heart at a time – this, my friends, is what Christian life is all about – spreading the love and light of Jesus Christ, and living selflessly. Trying to change lives for the better so they can see the power of Jesus work miracles in their lives.

God tells us to stop worrying about our worldly problems, and start worrying about our spiritual life more:

“Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?”

He then mentions that “your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.”

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33)

It is very important to remain faithful to God and take time to actively pursue His presence. If you incorporate your spiritual goals into your daily life, then life will become this harmonious ambition to shine for God, and then you will feel His presence along every step of the way, in everything you do.

No comfort, no human relationship, no riches and no fame can come even close to the satisfaction that can fill your heart when you start living for Him, when you make Him an inseparable part of your life.

Love God, and love your neighbors more than yourself. Be that person in this selfish world filled with greedy people working themselves to death for their own material gains.

Be the different one.

God bless you all!

Staying true to your identity


In today’s world where everyone is trying to “fit in” and find a “place where they belong”, it’s really hard for someone to stand out or set themselves apart, and when they do, they are often seen as the “insane” ones. Well, today I want to talk about why we must not be afraid to be apart from the norm in this world.

 

I’ve seen many Christians and pastors like this trying to desperately get the wrong kind of attention, trying to show the world that they are no different than the rest. I think some Christians even believe that trying to “relate” to the world will give them some kind of golden opportunity to share the gospel, by showing the world that Christians are just like the others. This, my friends, is a blasphemous lie.

(Here is the link to an article I recently read online. This is about a pastor who thought he could “win more souls” by riding a bull inside his church!! That’s right, he thinks he is doing gospel work by bringing in a bull and putting on a show for the world!! How sad. 

http://www.christianpost.com/news/ohio-cowboy-pastor-rides-bull-during-service-inside-sanctuary-says-hes-using-gifts-to-attract-new-believers-139363/ )

A true Christian is NOTHING like the world around them!! A true Christian will never be able to live like the others in the world, because they are called to be apart from it!

“But ye [are] a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:” (1 Peter 2:9)

butterfly-release-291x380We are a chosen generation!! We are not supposed to be like the others, but by being different in the way we act, the way we speak, the way we show kindness, the way we stand up for the truth, and most importantly, the way we love and serve God with all our hearts – by being different like this, we are supposed to show the world how brilliant the light of Jesus Christ is that can transform people!!!

“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” (Romans 12:2)

All you need to do is show the world that there is something fundamentally different about you, and later on they will realize that you are a child of God, and hopefully recognize and praise Him for it.

So how can we know what to do and what not to do? First of all, if you are saved already, you must have a voice inside convicting you of every action you do against the will of God. The Bible sets very clear guidelines about what angers the Lord, or what goes against His will.

Realize your identity in Christ, and live up to it. Think about it – Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sins and mine, He gave up everything He had, and until the last breath, He christ-crucified1only had mercy to show to those that were torturing Him. He prayed that they be forgiven, He decided to suffer the worst and die with no ounce of regret or revenge in His heart.

That, to me, is the purest form of love. He was able to endure it all because He loved us that much!!! His love was true, pure, and sacrificial. That is the kind of overwhelming love that we must have in our hearts if we choose to follow Jesus. Actually, once Jesus enters our lives, once we fully become a living temple for His work, we will find ourselves wrapped in that love, wanting to share it with everyone around us. Love the people of the world much more than yourself, putting their needs above your own, and being a servant first.

This humility of Jesus Christ is an essential part of being a Christian, and sadly, nowadays, it is hard to see people who truly follow this principle. Lots of Christians today do not have the time to care for others. Some people live for themselves, going to work, coming home, planning their retirement, etc. without even thinking about where they can include their Godly purpose in this schedule. They are too busy to worry about being a good Christian.

Instead, they just show up to church once in a week, sing some worship songs, sleep through the sermon, and go home. They think that makes up for everything!!

I am telling you right now, my dearest readers, you must stop being lazy about your calling!! Embody the love of Christ, and the truth of His gospel in every step of every single day. Remember Him in everything you do. Praise Him for everything good in life, and ask for His help and guidance in bad situations.

 

 

 

 

The Love of my life cried – Good Friday


As millions of Christians are in remembrance of the great sacrifice of Jesus Christ this Good Friday, I want to take a moment to reflect on what He went through for an unworthy, filthy sinner like me.

Right now I feel the same way I felt that very moment when I was baptized. Immersing your body in the water, to show solidarity that you have died with Christ, have been buriedb3b3d9f9981b75640b99d8e36141c0d3 and rising back up to symbolize yourself being risen with Him into everlasting life. That
moment I felt the fearful anxiety. I knew the moment I rose back to the surface would be a most memorable one, to have partaken in the death as well as resurrection of Jesus Christ. But yet, there was a sense of fear when I was completely covered in water. For a split second I thought of exactly how Jesus could have felt when He was about to die.

The one and only Love of my life – He cried that day. He had trembled in fear before. He had gone through the most frightful night of His life, sweating blood, knowing and waiting for the wolves to torture Him like no one in the history of mankind.

As He was taken away, His disciples lost their most loving, guiding Master. I cannot imagine being separated from Him like the disciples had to be that day, knowing that somewhere, He was being mishandled, beaten, ridiculed, and reduced to nothing but a bundle of blood by a group of unworthy human beings that do not understand just Who He is exactly.

The moment He was taken away… just imagining that makes me feel an aching pain in my heart. I want to protect Him yet He knew exactly what was waiting for Him on the other side. He allowed Himself to be killed. He could not ask for mercy from God because it was His purpose to die for us.

“Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.” (John 12:27)

He was whipped, His flesh pierced and torn by thorny whips. He was in agony, not being able to ask them to stop. He was the Son of the Almighty God, He had the power to stop it all, yet He stayed silent. He chose to suffer through it for the sake of each of us. bb4b7d8d8ce286d3fb760e5b91d74929

He, the King above all kings, was crowned with thorns. He was stripped of His clothes. He was mocked and killed by the ones He had created. From the day He skillfully and artistically created Adam from dirt, carefully designing him and breathing life into him, He had loved every single one of us. He had longed for a very close bond and relationship with us, but time and again the human race betrayed Him.

The human race had gone after false gods, bowed their heads to sin, and chased after their own lustful desires, turning their backs away from God.

 

 

The love of my life was in agony when those nails were hammered into His hands and feet.

201601122307075d7Those hands were the very hands that had healed the blind man, and comforted the poor. Those feet had seen the throne of heaven as well as the dirt of earth. Those feet where angels and saints bow their heads down in worship. They were pierced by nails.

Each drop of blood shed that day  accounts for the sins of us. Knowing that my sins were also responsible for that puts me in a painful position. Here I am, crying about what He suffered when in fact, it were my sins that made Him suffer. How worthless am I?

“It is finished” – the light of the world had been extinguished. Great darkness fell upon the earth. He was the light. His death was the redemption of us all.

Today I remember the day the love of my life cried. The day He died for me. He chose to suffer so that you and I may have everlasting life. That sacrifice is worth more than anything in this world. No love can compare, none of the riches or comforts of this world are worthy when I compare it to the gift He gave that day.

Jesus Christ, I love You Lord like none other in this world, for without You, I am nothing but a pile of dust ♥

So what is the purpose?


[Blogging 101 assignment #1]

I made my first post to this blog in 2012. Back when I had lots of time on my hands, things were easy.

But now I am swamped with several responsibilities, and I hate how much it has affected my blogging experience.

So, just as a reminder to me and to my readers, I blog so that I can share with the world my experience as a Christian. I want to share my thoughts about getting closer to God.

I want my blog to help others grow closer to God as well. I want to share my thoughts about Bible verses that I study.

That being said, I will post to this blog at least once a week this year. How will I keep up with it? It will probably be hard at times, but I will be reading the Bible and studying daily, so I’m not afraid of being at a loss of topics to discuss.

Let’s make this year the best!

Why do you worry?


Worrying is a painful thing to do, and yet we as humans are experts at worrying, are we not? We worry constantly! We worry about our future, our relationships, our children, our families, our money, our jobs, our health issues, about life itself!!

And yet there is no real reason to worry! All of the above things have one thing in common: the things we worry about are the things that sustain our lives here on earth. Think about each of the things I mentioned before – these are all necessities to live on this earth, and so we worry about them.

But have you ever seen a person worrying about their spiritual lives? About the things that they need to sustain themselves spiritually? Does anyone run around saying things like , “Oh my goodness, I forgot to read the Bible today!” or “I didn’t get time to pray today, what am I going to do!?” or maybe “Oh gosh I saw a sinner and I let him go without talking to him about Christ!” ?

I think not. These are spiritual necessities, and we tend to not worry about such things.

I think it is time to change things around. I want to improve as a Christian myself as well. I want my mind to be worrying about spiritual things all the time instead of worldly things.

Regarding our worldly needs, here is what the Bible says:

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33) 

You know I love this verse, because I have experienced it a few times myself, even if in small ways. One time I was doing some last minute studying for a terrible history test, when my friend messaged me asking about some spiritual things. I was hesitant about it but then I remembered this verse and spent that night talking to my friend about God. My human brain said I would fail that test due to a complete lack of time to study! And yet I came out with an A for that test! I know this is a tiny instance but I consider every small thing a generous gift from God, and I can’t say how many times this verse has proven to be true in my life.

God doesn’t lie. If He says He’ll take care of something for you, He MEANS IT!

All you need to do is trust His word. If you sacrifice something for His sake, He’ll make sure you are rewarded for that. That’s how awesome our God is!

Have you also noticed that THROUGHOUT the Bible is a vast amount of verses that say one thing: “FEAR NOT”! 

“Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield” (Genesis 15:1) 

“fear not, for I am with thee” (Genesis 26:24) 

“fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee” (Deuteronomy 31:6)

“fear not: have not I commanded you?” (2 Samuel 13:28)

“Fear not; I will help thee.” (Isaiah 41:13)

“Fear not: for I have redeemed thee” (Isaiah 43:1)

“Fear not: believe only” (Luke 8:50)

“Fear not; I am the first and the last:” (Revelation 1:17) 

And these are just a FEW of the many more verses in the Bible that tell us to stop being afraid, because our God is all powerful enough to take us through anything and everything!

Do you believe that God is the Creator of the universe and all that we see? Do you believe this same God is all powerful? Do you believe that God doesn’t lie? Do you believe that the God that sacrificed His own Son for YOUR sake has enough mercy and love to help you through a hard situation?

If your answers to the previous questions were “yes”, then why do you fear? Why do you worry? Worry is a manifestation of your heart’s fear. Stop worrying about your worldly life.

If a little child cannot trust his father enough to jump into his hands from a high tree, think of how disappointed that father would be? God is our Father. Let us learn to trust Him.

Let us learn to worry more about our spiritual relationship with God. Let us worry about carrying out our duties as citizens of the Kingdom of God by spreading the word.

God bless you all, and may us all find the courage and faith to boldly walk through life’s hardships knowing that God is by our side.

Open Your Eyes


My dear readers,

I apologize for not posting for the last few times, as I was preoccupied with my studies. I really am very sorry.

Today I would like to discuss with you what is going on in this world. I do not know if you are aware of this, but the number of earthquakes and other natural disasters is on the constant rise nowadays. I know, such things have been occurring for a long time, but this is not like that. No, these days, over a hundred earthquakes are shaking our planet every day. YES!

Click on this link to see just how many earthquakes have occurred in just this day:

http://quakes.globalincidentmap.com/

Can you believe it? Around 100 EARTHQUAKES in one day! This morning!

The end times are here, my friends. This is your chance to repent and turn to God NOW!

Look at these pictures of how many earthquakes have hit in the past week itself:

earth earthquakesAll the blue marks represent earthquakes of a 4 to 5 point intensity, and the yellow ones represent a 5 to 6 point intensity earthquake. These are very dangerous ones.

The red ones are very intense, serious and damaging earthquakes of a 6 point or higher intensity.

Mark 13:8:

8For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.

These are just the beginning, my friends! There are many things yet to come!

But one thing is for sure: WE ARE IN THE END TIMES.

I know this is probably making most of you think that I am just either crazy or just plain bored. Trust me, I have a million things to take care of in my life, and yet I am taking my time on this to make sure that I get the truth out to my readers. I don’t mind if you decide to hate me after this post, but I have to deliver the truth that God has shown me and my family.

Whether you want to believe it or not, the truth is the truth. I have promised my readers to deliver to them nothing but the pure truth, and I hold up my promise until the very end. Therefore I tell you, this is what is happening. Biblical plagues have started affecting many places.

A river in China turns blood red.

We are hearing of possible war scenarios, natural disasters, famine, locust, plagues, droughts, earthquakes, blood-red rivers and lakes, etc. each and every day. Do you ever stop to think what all these may mean?

My friends, the Lord is coming soon!

If you are a sinner, you have no more time to keep delaying this for tomorrow. The time is upon you to repent and turn to the living God NOW!!

When the day of the Lord comes, I know that every single person who has read this blog will have no excuse to say that they did not know about the Lord. They will have no excuse to say that they didn’t know about salvation. If you are reading this right now, you know exactly what to do.

Repent, pray and be born again. The Lord can come at any moment. I know most of you will ignore my messages, but trust me, God knows this and so do His children, for we all know from the time of Noah, that the bearers of truth will always be ignored by those who are to perish.

But those who are to be saved will accept the truth, and repent.

 

I hope and pray that my readers are of the latter group, and may God bless you.

Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or concerns: steny8295@yahoo.in

or my father Evg. Joy Simon if you are in need of prayer: joysimonapb@yahoo.com

You can contact either of us if you wish to learn more and if you wish to know the Lord closer and repent. We are here for your guidance and help.

Till next time, may the peace of Christ be with you.

 

True Love


Hello, my dearest readers! I hope that you have all by God’s grace been well, and so have I.

As you may have noticed, today we are taking a detour from our line of thought which was the armor of God.

Today I feel the urge to emphasize one four letter word – “LOVE”

We all use that word in our lives daily – to express our love for the people we like, the food we enjoy and the beauty that touches us. We use it so much that most of us have started to forget what it truly means to love someone.

There are so many types of love that can develop between humans, including love crossheartlogo1between man and woman, father and son, mother and child, brother and sister, grandparents and grandchildren, love between friends, etc. But I’m very sad today to see that the love that people carry in hearts is reducing day by day.

We as a society have started forgetting what it means to love one another. Sure, people still do love each other, or take care of each other and all that, but what happens afterwards? I mean, what happens in the long run?

Has love today become limited to the affection one feels for just a short period of time and then just disappears? Why does love not last longer today?

Why do the children that once did their best just to show their parents their drawings and stories, grow up to suddenly become “independent” and just forget about their mom and Father-and-sondad? When did this teenage need of “privacy” and “space” come into the lives of those loving parents’ kids, who till yesterday seemed to need them for everything and anything?

Why has the concept of friendship been degraded today? There used to be a time when poets wrote about friendship as the most beautiful relationship ever- describing how a true friend would be understanding and caring and make sacrifices for their friend. But what has become of this true friendship today? Why is it that friends nowadays only care about each other if they are “cool enough”?

Instead of opening up your heart to your friend, and talking about your worries and Forgiven jesus%20forgiveshardships, and listening to your friend’s as well, and supporting each other, why is it that your conversations are limited to the newest movies and latest fashion trends?

Why is it that couples don’t stay together longer? Does marriage have no meaning whatsoever nowadays? Why do people treat their partners like clothing or accessories, which can be changed or thrown away as time goes by? Why do couples have to separate when they have to face the slightest disagreement or the smallest obstacle, instead of trying to work as a team to solve things? Marriage is a Godly relationship, and it should be seen with equal importance. Why don’t people have the patience to accept each others’ faults and to work at it instead of spontaneously leaving each other to cry in solitude?

Why, why, why WHY??????

I don’t like this. Let me be honest with everyone –  I don’t like this lack of love one bit.

But I should say I have an answer to my own question -WHY THE LACK OF LOVE?

Well, who do you think gave us love first and foremost? Ever read this verse:?

1 John 4:8 “He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.”God-is-Love

Yes, my dear friend, God is love. If God is love, and love is decreasing from our society today, then how would you equate that? If most people among us don’t carry love in heart, that means most people among us don’t have God in heart, because only someone who knows God can love completely.

God is the greatest form of love you can ever know, and that is evident in how He gave up His only Son as sacrifice for us all. Would you give your son up to death for the sake of your friend? For the sake of your partner? For the sake of anyone? No, no one can. But rsz_jesus_on_the_cross_john_3-16_God did, because His heart is greater, and He carries such a love that you and I can never even imagine of. His love is like the vast universe, with no beginning or end –  only bigger!

Even though we can never have as much love as God, if we know Him and love Him, then we will be capable of loving the ones around us, spreading love like a beautiful scent that comforts and makes people feel like they’re never alone. We must obey our Master’s teaching to love even our foes.

Love everyone around you like your own friend, even if they hate you, because our love is what proves that we are the children of our Heavenly Father. Love the ones that hate you, betray you, lie to you, degrade you, torture you, and spread rumors about you. Love them all, my friend, for that is what God did.

We will certainly discuss more about this in later posts, but for now I must stop. I hope you will leave comments and let me know what your opinions are about this topic.

Till next time, my dearest readers, may the love and peace of Christ be with you, and may God bless you!!

You can e-mail me for any questions or concerns, or if you’d just like a friend to talk to. I’d be glad to hear your story, and offer my moral support as your friend in Christ: steny8295@yahoo.in

Take care!

Your Shoes of Peace


Greetings my dear readers!! Welcome back! This is our first post for the year of 2013, so may I start off by saying thank you once again for all your support, and may I take a moment to thank the Almighty God for His kind grace on this blog.. for giving me the right words and the right topics to write about.. for giving me the inspiration to write..

I hope you all had a nice New Years!

Now, onto the subject of thought – the Armor of God. We discussed the importance of the Belt of truth and the Breastplate of righteousness. Now if you remember the verse: (Ephesians, chapter 6 verses 14-17)

15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

3. THE SHOES OF PREPARATION FOR THE GOSPEL OF PEACE

You feet must be shod with the “preparation of the gospel of peace” which means that you must stand ready as ever to spread the message of peace among the world.

The shoe is what protects your feet when you charge towards the enemy. Without a good caaog3shoespair of shoes, your feet would suffer from the stones and thorns of this world, and no matter how energetic you are, you wouldn’t be able to fight as well because you cannot move as you feet are injured.

This means that you must be prepared to accept as well as spread the gospel of peace. You see, if you do not  show enthusiasm for Christ’s message of peace, then how would you be able to stand and fight strong in this war?

Another question that may arise in your hearts may be “How does a soldier at war benefit from the gospel of peace if they’re trying to defeat the enemy?”

Well, the peace of Christ is what helps a child of God endure through everything. You must keep in mind that this war is not physical, but spiritual, and therefore, it is an ongoing war.. it happens everyday, whether you notice it or not.

soldier for GodEveryday, when you face hardships, feel sad, become unable to be your best for God, these are all times when the devil is trying his best to attack you and discourage you.. but no, in those hard times, like I always say, pray. Pray to God, and find strength in Him.

Once the peace of Christ overcomes your heart, then no matter how many trials and tribulations the devil brings in your life, you will be able to withstand it all, because the practice of Christ’s peace is what shoes your feet, and as long as you keep those shoes on, no matter how many thorns or stones you have to step on, they won’t affect you and you will be able to fight strong.

Spread this gospel of peace, be prepared to share it with the world every single day. Prepare your feet to carry this gospel of peace enthusiastically, and prepare yourself to fight the enemy that is vainly trying to stop you.

Don’t hesitate to e-mail me if you have questions: steny8295@yahoo.in

God bless you till next time!! 🙂
