Tough times only help us grow and teach us that God has set a few people apart to be warriors, up front on the battlefield... They teach us that we can't fight the fight without letting go and letting God.. without revealing christ... In fact, we the fortified, learn to humble ourselves before challenging people and situations...and let God shine in His power through our selflessness.. we are dared to let God go before us, learning to lay our words and strengths aside and let faith speak through the spirit that dwells within ...And in this very act of surrender to God we find that we have already won, even before the battle ends..even if they never end. We win because we honor God with our perseverance.. we win because we refuse to give in to self pity and the good life..we win because we have faith and believe.

N.B: What we identify as curses, bad karma & long suffering is actually distinguished privilege for the fearless and set apart to be moulded for greater battles to come

Off limits for the faint at heart!


Respecting a man of good heart & virtue says more bout him than it does about you for he puts effort into building honorable character and lovable charm. But respecting a man of weakness and vice radiates who YOU are: selfless, unchanging, valiant and of matchless stature.

Can we find one, in these days, who is fearless and exceptional enough to fight bad with good and evil with striking dignity? For power lies, not in judgement or vengeance against another but in being who we are truly supposed to be in the face of all individuals, despite their failings, sin and pride that hurt us...Power lies not just in loving the worthy or the pitiful but in simply loving all, with no benefit for oneself. This is integrity. This is to be like Christ.

"If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' love those who love them. And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' do that. Luke 6:31-33

(The Message)

31-34"Here is a simple rule of thumb for behavior: Ask yourself what you want people to do for you; then grab the initiative and do it for them! If you only love the lovable, do you expect a pat on the back? Run-of-the-mill sinners do that. If you only help those who help you, do you expect a medal? Garden-variety sinners do that. If you only give for what you hope to get out of it, do you think that's charity? The stingiest of pawnbrokers does that.

A million times you'll reach a point in life's journey when you look ahead and the road is thorny and you just want to look for the alternate route or you just want to sit and wait for an easier way to manifest on its own. But the right thing to do is to set out and amazingly you'll find yourself being carried by Christ. Though you can't see him when you're looking over at the thorny path, He's just waiting for you to trust Him to carry you across safely, to take care of you. He's just waiting for you to step out.

Something God was telling me...wanted to just share it with everybody 'cause you never who might need the extra help. I did and He sent me a friend to remind me how taking the most difficult path is a way of telling God that you trust Him. That you love Him more than you love yourself or anybody else.

The sun had almost set, below the golden-red horizon; the violet-blue spreading further into the endless sky. I lay myself down, the grass cooling my back, as the stars reflect in my eyes. The velvet sky was the perfect canvas for these glittering diamonds. I breathe in the smell of perfect beauty. Of every tree, the brook nearby, the apples swinging on their heavy boughs. And I feel my soul marvel at Your creation. A song of worship escapes my lips, clear yet soft, I sing of Your majesty. I tell You of how You simply take my breath away. How I cannot imagine life without You. How my joy is found in Your love. And I notice how every bit of creation sang a song of worship to You - each in their own way. The trees swung gently, moved by the breeze as dancers would to a mellow tune. The grass swayed this way and that, a green sea of beauty and depth. The brook worshiped You in her gentleness; each pebble that she came across, she jumped over and made the sound of laughing silver glass. The stars stood as testament to Your eternal glory, the moon radiating Your magnificence. And I lay in wonder and amazement at how all of creation adored You. I felt small and honoured to know and love the same God that the whole earth worshiped. I continued with my song, the tune reaching past the clouds and entering Your courts, finding its way to Your ear. I can feel You smile, Your eyes reflecting joy. I drift off into a gentle sleep and in my dreams I found myself in the arms of my Father.
