by Love God Greatly Over the summer I read an article about Markus Persson, the developer of the popular video game, Minecraft. In the article it stated that Persson had sold his video game company in the last year to Microsoft and amassed a fortune reaching well into the BILLIONS. Using some of the money … Continue reading Life without God is vanity
When most of us think of abuse, we think of domestic violence or abuse of a sexual, verbal, or physical nature. We think about husband who beat their wives, parents who hurt their children, or a random or planned act of violence in a public place. Most people would never think of it inside the church. In fact, I had people tell me in a committee meeting that they did not think the church I served at that time should do background checks on those who served in the nursery, children, or youth ministries because we were a small town and everyone knew each other. I told them that I served in a church very much like that, and a long-time pedophile was victimizing several in the church. The people stared at me, but I had proven my point. This man was an “upstanding” man in the area who had…

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…

We get told to recycle just about everything but I am not entirely convinced.
Carotid. It says something, it tells of the carotid arteries or carotuses. The ones running up the neck to the head.
A friend was diagnosed with it recently, not the first in my circles, either. It came as a shock as this person is on #LCHF diet and never looked better. In fact, she is approaching sixty but had shed much excess weight, has a healthy skin glow and a vibrancy my wife and I had never seen in the eleven years we knew her.
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.
The build-up op fatty deposits in the neck arteries didn’t happen overnight and occurred slowly over six decades. When we are younger…

A lot of the debate over divorce has to do with the way we interpret and handle Jesus’ teaching on the subject. In Matthew’s Gospel, for example, the Pharisees come to Jesus for a decision and they are trying to trick him into speaking against the law of Moses. They ask, “Is it lawful to … Continue reading Are there any biblical grounds for divorce, and if so, what are they?
Being a millennial New Yorker and actor, I’d like to think I’ve got pretty thick skin.
Getting rejected is par for the course in the entertainment industry. The city doesn’t do you any favors — just try battling the check out lines at Whole Foods at 3pm on a Sunday. Heck, even the squirrels seems to have a certain undeniable hutzpah on these streets.
Really, nothing quite comes as a shock to me anymore, for better or for worse.
Earlier this week, opening up my Buzzfeed app to find Kathy Griffin’s infamous photo of her, carrying the bloodied head of a decapitated President Donald Trump…I literally stopped in my tracks.
And I have a few words.
This is not okay. I don’t care how much you hate the President or his policies, that went. too far.
It’s no secret that Donald Trump is one of –…

Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. … Continue reading Today’s Truth
I was rushing all my life.
But now the pain in my joints is forcing me to slow down.
And I like it.
Not a pain but slowing down. 🙂
Going slow I’m avoiding tripping, falling down and breaking my old aching bones.
And I have time to think where I’m going, why I’m going there and what I will do when I get there. 🙂
Sure, I can hurry up if there is emergency.
Than I will forget the pain and I will do whatever have to be done under the circumstances.
This old Italian Proverb explains why going slow is better:
Chi va piano
Means: He who go slowly
And goes far
So slow down if you want to go sano and go lontano. 🙂
And someone Anonymous said:
Slow down happiness is trying to catch you.
Thank you for visiting.

“A woman’s heart should be so hidden in God that a man has to seek Him
– just to find her.”
– Max Lucado
I love this quote! Because nothing could be more true – and yet, not much is further from the truth when asking the youth of today.
According to an article on Christianitytoday.com, the top ten fears of the youth today has the #10 fear as “I will never have a happy marriage”… ???…
That’s not the Lord speaking, but the devil speaking into the hearts of our youth today.
Girls & Boys: You are valuable! You deserve love! You are worth dying for!
You don’t believe me?
Then look at the compassion in God’s eyes:
He hung on the cross – so you wouldn’t have to.
You are infinitely loved by a God Who will never abandon His own!
With God nothing is impossible. Marriage? With Jesus in the…

Hello all , I thank you for looking in to my blog.
Please read this and I would really love to see your comments.
Let’s look at and notice this world again for a while…..We could only discover lustful works, hatred, jealousy and all that are against righteousness.
This is the most sinful place where we are living at present, the
World is filled with all kinds of lustful works that it’s very difficult
For anybody to stay pure without God’s help, and God wants Hispeople to be Holy.
We may be regular Church goers , we may have a very kind and
Merciful heart, we may be one of the very active members of the Church
and attend all the youth conference and gospel conference without
fail, that’s great ! God appreciates that and also God wants us to be of such kind.
But before that …
