We should never come with an approach of ‘I know it all’ and ‘I’ve heard it all’. We must remain open and teachable, even before scriptures that we may have read hundreds of times.
We use and hear the phrase ‘brace yourself’ which is said to have evolved from the verb form of ‘brace’: “To make (a structure) stronger or firmer with wood, iron, or other forms of support". ‘Brace’ then evolved to "brace yourself" which translates to doing something physically to keep yourself from falling over or being … Continue reading Grace yourself
Technology is a tool and like any tool it can be used for good or for bad. A knife can be used for cooking, a hammer or axe for building, but both can be used for harm. The tool has no morals or values, it is the user that brings their morals and values to the use of that tool. This is the same with technology. The psychologist in me makes me understand another aspect of the use of technology as a tool. Anything that we use creates or exerts a degree of change in us, whether we realise it or not. For example, when you constantly use a pen or knife, after a while you may see an impression on your hands and fingers. Similarly, our use of technology creates impression marks on our minds which primes us for future activities, decisions, habits, expectations and relationships.

God's 'no' is better than man's 'yes'. Look back and glorify God for the things He saved you from. Look back and think about how pre-mature desires could have led you in the ditch. Look back and appreciate God's discipline, an expression of HIS love for you as His son/daughter. Look back and appreciate His … Continue reading Sometimes God says NO!
Matthew 6:5-15 (The Message) And when you come before God, don't turn that into a theatrical production either. All these people making a regular show out of their prayers, hoping for stardom! Do you think God sits in a box seat? "Here's what I want you to do: Find a quiet, secluded place so you … Continue reading Prayer Is Not A Theatrical Production
