Magnet tude of Joy


The joy of the Lord is your protection. This is a little understood truth divulged through Scripture.

How can joy protect?

The sine wave has two sides to it, an upswing that is positive and a downswing that is negative. But you can only surf the positive one.

Interesting that some computer electronics only use the upswing, the negative one is filtered out. This is sheer coincidence yet it serves to drive home my point.

For a year, we lived independently and were joyful. The place where we lived even had an African name meaning “jubilation.” My (electronic) tablet so many times started playing praise music, inexplicably, even in public places. We soon realised that this was the Lord at work. More so when, at first, I was annoyed a bit, thinking it was a glitch. Then others would board the train, playing such music out loud and His Spirit…

Isaac went out to meditate in the field at the eventide.

"Isaac went out to meditate in the field at the eventide." - Genesis 24:63 Very admirable was his occupation. If those who spend so many hours in idle company, light reading, and useless pastimes, could learn wisdom, they would find more profitable society and more interesting engagements in meditation than in the vanities which now … Continue reading Isaac went out to meditate in the field at the eventide.

Of course, what she has been diagnosed with, has nothing to do with her healthy #LCHF diet at all. It really is collateral damage resulting from lifestyles of yesterdecades.

Geloof droom skryf

My skoonseun het hierdie brief vir hulle dogter geskryf toe sy 16 word:

8 April 2014

My Kind

Vandag 16 jaar gelede het ek ‘n ook vir jou ‘n brief geskryf, dit was die dag voor jy gebore is.   Nou, 16 kort jaar, min hare, baie plooie, ronder kurwes en wie weet wat alles later word jy al 16!  Dit voel soos gister met baie vuil doeke tussenin.  Om jou tot hier te kon bring is vir ons ‘n voorreg, met die Vader se genade sal ons nog baie gelukkige jare saam hê. Maar laat my tot die punt kom. As jy verjaar moet daar mos ‘n geskenk wees.

Teen die tyd dat jy die brief lees gaan jy redelik uit jou vel wees. Dit mag ook wees dat jy nou al in iets vasgehardloop het of jou kop iewers gestamp het uit blote verwondering en ongeloof. Jy gaan moontlik…
