Love Unites, Hate Divides


Good Day, Beautiful People!

People are entitled to their opinions.  Doesn’t mean we have to follow what the crowd do.  The world is fractured filled with angry, broken, hurt, lost and forgotten people. Love this saying, “We are here to heal and not to harm. We are here to love and not to hate. We are here to create and not destroy.”  

If we stop, consider and think first, most of us will not leash out in reaction and respond in a level head way. Apply Godly wisdom in all situations. 

Sometimes, we may not even like our leaders or even feel that they’re unfit for the role. The truth is the Creator of the universe does not need our approval. He can choose who he wants for His purpose. We often discount people base on the exterior and not the heart. Remember these:

The Lord can control a king’s mind as he controls a river; he can direct it as he pleases. -Proverbs 21:1 NCV

Surely you know. Surely you have heard. Surely from the beginning someone told you. Surely you understand how the earth was created. God sits on his throne above the circle of the earth, and compared to him, people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the skies like a piece of cloth and spreads them out like a tent to sit under. He makes rulers unimportant and the judges of this world worth nothing. They are like plants that are placed in the ground, like seeds that are planted. As soon as they begin to grow strong, he blows on them and they die, and the wind blows them away like chaff. God, the Holy One, says, “Can you compare me to anyone? Is anyone equal to me?” Look up to the skies. Who created all these stars? He leads out the army of heaven one by one and calls all the stars by name. Because he is strong and powerful, not one of them is missing. –Isaiah 40:21‭-‬26 NCV

All of you must yield to the government rulers. No one rules unless God has given him the power to rule, and no one rules now without that power from God. –Romans 13:1 NCV

Hope this serve as a kind reminder, just because a Christian won’t support something, doesn’t mean that they hate the people involved in it. Choose the high road and stop the nasty naming, blaming and throwing stones, especially Christian Leaders must lead by example. It is good to be sensitive and gracious to give people space and time to heal, dream, build, pray, love again. Be the salt and light, continue to shine brightly in the darkness of your spheres.  


O Lets together let people know that we are listening. May this not just be a facebook post but a quality of character that defines us!

To my Muslim friends – if you can find no one who will treat you with respect or welcome you with love, I will.

To my Hispanic friends – if you find yourself with nowhere to go or no one to help you or your family, I will.

To my LGBTQ friends – if you feel alone or lost and wondering who will stand up for you, I will.

To my Black friends – if you wonder if anyone will value your life, I will.

You are my friends, my neighbors, my family. Even if no one else will hear you, apologize or help, I will.

Waiting Time is not Wasted Time


Good Day, Beautiful People.

Ps Ray’s message shared recently that “waiting time is not wasted time”.
If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come.
Job 14:14

Habakkuk 2:1-3
1 I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved.

2 And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.
3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
There is a waiting period that precedes the manifestation of great expectations. The gestation period of an African elephant is the longest of all mammals. It lasts for about 22 months, which is almost two calendar years. Contrast this with that of a rat which is just about 20 days.
If your expectation is very great, your waiting period may be longer than that of another man with smaller expectations. 
Expectation for a great miracle warrants great patience. It is premature for an elephant to deliver nine months after pregnancy, whereas it is the joy of any woman to deliver her baby during that same period. 
You need to wait for your own appointed time as designed by God.
To wait for God’s time requires your determination (Job 14:14). God will come to your aid, but when He does, will He find you still waiting for Him? Jesus promised to return the second time but He wondered if He would find faith on earth at His return (Luke 18:8). 
The example of Job teaches a great lesson on patience in tribulation. Our waiting period in God’s design does not mean that God is dodging His responsibility towards us as men do. When some people tell you to wait, it is an indirect way of telling you to forget about your expectation from them. But when God tells you to wait, He will attend to you.
God has a timetable for each and every one of His children. Wait for His time. The mystery of God’s appointed time is that it is often not known. All we need to do is wait for Him; trusting His love for us, His faithfulness to His promises and His unlimited power to do anything he wants to do at any time He wants to do it.
This is how God wants you to handle your waiting period. Believe Him for His promise, and while waiting, begin to testify of what He is about to do. This is why I keep telling myself “it is well with me” because I know He has said “it shall be well with the righteous”.
You may not be privileged to know the times and the seasons when He will manifest His power in your life; one thing is however certain: He will work in your life at His own time. 
The waiting period may be full of tears, but joy will still come in the morning. Some of those who waited for God in the past did so with tears in their eyes, but they never stopped waiting for Him, and they got their expectations.


Prayer Point: 

Father, teach me patience in the place of waiting for my change, and deliver my expectations from failure in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!

Mom’s the Word


 
  
Good Day, Beautiful People! 

Happy Mother’s Day to all Moms; natural moms, spiritual moms, Moms in love, adopted moms, single moms, stepmoms, foster moms, “furry kids”moms [AKA pets moms] and all my wise, brave, courageous and strong mom friends in different seasons who celebrate!   You deserve to be honoured and spoilt for the tireless work you do, your sacrifice, tears, sweat, joy, pain, struggles , challenges and prayers. At times, you can feel like under valued by people around you and society. Hope you realised you’re bringing up the next generation;  you’re loved, valued and seen by the unseen God! Newsflash people, all moms are working moms in case you’re wondering. There is no checkout time, no annual leave, no pay, no sickies leave… Is a 24/7 job! Yet, most women are willing to taken on this job.

I’m mindful that Mother’s Day can be overwhelming, painful and difficult due to unexpected situations like separation from family, loss of child , orphans, lawless mom, shady mom, vicious mom, childless mom and loss of grandma. I pray real peace for me and you all. 

I don’t need a special day to honour my mummy! I live my whole life in a way that will honour her. Forever thankful for giving life to me and raising me up to be a contributor to society. She sacrifices her life devoted to her family, raising her children up well and looking after her grand babies and grandkids so her children can feel secure to chase after their dreams and conquer their world.  Without you and your huge sacrifice, we will not be where we are today.  

 

  

  

‘M’ is for the million things she gave me,

‘O’ means only that she’s growing old,

‘T’ is for the tears she shed to save me,

‘H’ is for her heart of purest gold;

‘E’ is for her eyes, with love-light shining,

‘R’ means right, and right she’ll always be,

Put them all together, they spell ‘MOTHER,’

A word that means the world to me.

This is the touching song, You raised me up,  I dedicated for my mummy one of her birthdays. Enjoy, it always reminds me of you when I listen to this song.

I can’t help myself but to share these hilarious comics, pretty sure most moms can relate to these.

   
    
    
  

Keep dreaming ladies, this may come true one day!
  
    

This what moms really want, hope and pray that all the kids turned to be good people.

 

A blessing and prayer tribute to all mothers 

“Blessed be all mothers

Who have come into our lives

Whose kindness, care and loving

Remain with us to guide.

Your inspiration in us
Made us strive in every way

Especially to remember

Helping others makes our day.

Mothers, this little tribute
Flows directly from my heart

You are so loved and cherished

Invaluable, one and all, you are.

Love; Amour; Amor; Amore; 爱

  
Good Day, Beautiful People!

Happy St Valentine’s Day to all that celebrate love.  Divine Love from above, Love for self, Love for Lovers,  Love for families, Love for friends, Love for pets and Love for community.

Without doubt, we understand not all people will be happy on St Valentine’s Day. Some people are going to be heart broken, disappointed, jealous, sad, depressed and lonely. I totally comprehend  those who boycott Valentine’s Day for above reasons and others think that is too commercialise maybe for the young and for the rich. Well, I just happen to think it is about showing appreciation of love to people you care around you even you’re not in a relationship. It doesn’t have to cost you an arm or a leg. You just have to be a bit creative like my beloved or my mom.

When a woman knows who she is. She doesn’t respond to what she is not.  Never compromise your destiny with bad company just because you are feeling lonely. There is nothing wrong with singleness. I’m a true believer of this notion “better to be single than to settle down for second best”. This is not a cliche, the right attention from a wrong individual during a lonely time can fool you into thinking they might be the one.  Finding someone worth waking up to is always going to be better than finding someone to sleep with. 

   
  

The People I know are pretty savvy just in case you need to point someone in your world the right direction. Well, the reverse is true too! Gentlemen… In case, you’re confused. God will never send you someone else’s wife. 

  
 

Friends,  your Divine Prince of Peace has died for you and love you the way you are because you are beautiful, worthy and valuable. You’re loved. So don’t let someone who doesn’t appreciate your worth destroy your future. You deserve someone better.   Maybe someone has to repeat this out loud in front of the mirror to sink in.  

   
   
My advice for the singles is never ever chase love, affection or attention. If it isn’t given freely by another person, it isn’t worth having.  The gospel truth is You don’t need someone to complete you. You need someone to accept you completely. And seriously, it doesn’t matter who hurt you or broke you down. What matter is who make you smile again.

Now listen to your heart, if you know you have found someone special or if you love someone have the courage to let the person know. Because hearts are often broken by words left unspoken. Remember, the someone maybe a great guy or great girl but that doesn’t mean he or she is the One for you.

Do something special for yourself or family or single friends. Turn it into a day of self pampering. My mom used to deck the home, get nice treats or baked for us as a family. Some years, we go out to see a movie together. Other years, we go shopping together follow by a lovely meal in a family restaurant. She pretty much influence me in a way that I feel fine to be single and didn’t feel pressure of hooking up with someone. I guess when you feel loved up, you don’t feel the need to go out with any random guys who interested in you or rush into a relationship especially you know in your heart is not right in the first place. These days is not easy to be bombarded by media, social media, celebs and peer pressure to have a relationship as a teenage. Well, my parents used to say if the guys you want to date must be able to provide for his future family. He better be paying for your dates. If you think he has potential great ask him to come back in a few years time. I think most parents will like my parents saying “if the guy is still using his parents’ money means he can’t even take care of himself. He has not earn the right to have relationship with you.” I’m not even talking about conviction and characters of person of interest yet. I guess my folks has set the bar pretty high for me to consider dating anyone they will approve.  You may think this is easy for my parents to preach on that because I’m a girl.  The truth is my brother pay for meals 90% of time with us and even with his in laws extended family.  I’m not suggesting you have to follow what we do. 
  

For those married men out there, these are some good tips:
