Our life is what we make it, by our own thoughts and actions. Our life can be a sweet savour of life unto life; or we can make it as bitter as gall. All this as a result of our choices we make each day. We can only attain to the measure we aspire to. We can sing praises to the Lord while we have our being; or we can do wickedly and rob ourselves of the joy of living.

Only one weapon of attack; but it is good. The sword of the Spirit , which is the word of God. It subdues and mortifies evil desires, and blasphemous thoughts as they rise within. It answers unbelief and error as they assault from without. A single text well understood and rightly applied, at once destroys a temptation or an objection, and subdues the most formidable adversary.
God's love is infinite, everlasting, unconditional, He loved us and revealed his love to us through his son Jesus. He expressed his love for us by dying for us; He had the courage to reveal this wonderful love to us; and was mocked, betrayed and died because of his marvelous love for us.

The nature of the Christian's work, is a high and hard work, God's goodness requires serious and earnest endeavours. We should aim at glorifying God at all times. Happiness comes through serving and giving God praise. He who has given himself to God may say confidently that the Lord is good and through Jesus nothing but glory is solid and lasting and abides forever.
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms. 1 Peter 4:10
|Flaming June by Fredrick Lord Leighton 1830-1896|
A thing of little value or importance, and even greater troubles, which annoy would soon dissolve and disappear if confronted with a temper that refuses to be ruffled and disturbed.
All can attain calmness and patience when we strife through effort to obtain calm and patient thoughts. Divine power awaits those who want it, therefore we can claim this power, by continuously thinking calm thoughts as we begin to live it; it is then we begin to experience peace as anger and impatience, pass away.
The peace of God is incomparable, it transcends all understanding, it will guard your hearts and minds. So we are admonished to be anxious for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving we should let our request be made known to our heavenly Father, who is able to keep in perfect peace all those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in him.
Complete trust in God allows us to demolish every arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God and cause us to take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ; this makes us able to receive the peace of God, which passes all understanding, enabling us to keep our minds and heart centered upon Christ and resisting the urge to worry.
All these things we have been told to empower us to be, It is the will of God that we may all have peace. We are reminded in this world we will have trouble but we are encouraged by our Maker and Savior to take heart! For we are more than victorious if we allow God to direct our lives. Christ said, "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you, not as the world gives do I give to you, let not your heart be troubled neither let it be afraid.
