THE QUALITY OF LIFE

Daily Inspiration
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.

SHOULD A WOMAN PROPOSE TO A MAN?

For some to have a  lady propose to a man would be considered outrageous, and unacceptable; however in more recent times it has become normal for a lady if she is in love and has been dating for a long time to make the first move.

SWORD OF SPIRIT

Daily Inspiration
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.

LOVE

Daily Inspiration
Giovanni Boldini
"It hurts to love someone and not be loved in return, but what is more painful is to love someone and never find the courage to let that person know how you feel."

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.

BREVITY AND VANITY OF LIFE


"A careless word may kindle strife. A cruel word may wreck a life. A timely word may level stress. But a loving word heal and bless."


"The future has several names for the weak it is impossible, for the faint- hearted it is unknown; but for the valiant it is ideal."

I AM THANKFUL


I am thankful for trials like the oceans.
I am grateful for every victory won.
For enduring faith and clarity,
For I was appointed from eternity;
Before the world began,
When he marked out the horizon;
He established the world thereof,
Showering  us with his love from above.

USE OF GIFTS


Daily Inspiration


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


PEACE OF GOD

Flaming June by Fredrick  Lord Leighton 1830-1896

Daily Inspiration

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.

THE LOVE CODE

A little coaxing - William Bougueraeu
Art 1. Love is a precious gift, which we receive from God.

Art 2. Genuine, dedicated love is a pure affection, not a feeling, but a principle.

Art 3. Those who are motivated by true love are neither unreasonable nor blind.

Art 4. Pure love a precious article is very rare.
