WELCOME TO THIS CHRISTIAN WEBSITE

Welcome to this Christian Website which has now been going for a number of years. Over 128,000 people have visited it since 2006. On the left hand side of the introductory page is a host of subjects and material that have been placed during this time and is there for your interest, study and perusal.

I feel it is time and right to change the format and to present day by day something a little simpler and trust will benefit and bless those who visit it. It will consist of a Prophetic Word for Today, A Golden Promise from the Scriptures, Just a Thought by Aaron Linford. Choice Quotations and something to Focus your mind on are included that can be developed more fully by you. I trust you will find such refreshing and helpful

A PROPHETIC WORD FOR YOU

Live in the sure awareness that the LORD has pledged His Presence to be with always with you and to every act on your behalf whatever situation you are in or called to face. In no way will He desert and leave you to the limits of yourself but will be around to render all the required assistance and make certain that all is attended to your benefit. There is therefore no need for you to be unduly anxious or fretful because He is All-Sufficient and no seeming problem to you is to Him problematic. He has all the answers for life and eternity and you must learn to rest and live in the security of His constancy and ministry. So cast care aside, receive from Him the glorious conviction that He is present now to meet and minister into all of the requirements that will come your way. Together you will more than answer today with all of its demands.

A GOLDEN PROMISE

“In You, O LORD, I put my trust; Let me never be ashamed; Psalm 31:1

Do you sometimes feel so close to losing a battle in your life? Do you worry about being ashamed that you could not handle this battle yourself? Perhaps you have been unable to overcome some circumstances in your life and feel like a failure. You’ve been taught that good Christians don’t struggle, don’t have problems. I’m here to tell you that we all struggle and will struggle until we cross over to Glory.

We will never be ashamed if we put our trust fully in Jesus. You see, He uses our weaknesses, our failures, even our poor choices, for His purpose that His will be done on this earth. This day, can you trust Him fully, knowing that you will never be ashamed, bringing all of your trials, all of your weaknesses, all of your failures before Him? My prayer is that you will know His peace as you seek refuge in Him knowing that nothing is outside of His will for you.

JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linford

JUST A THOUGHT – Rev. Aaron Linford
THEOLOGY OF FAILURE

Haddon Robinson, senior editor of “Christianity Today”, once penned a remarkable concept. He wrote:

“Anyone can put together a theology of success. It is not hard to celebrate men and women who are winners, and explain what makes them great. The tough work lies in constructing a theology for failures. Perhaps because I have failed so often in my life I look for the word from God that will help me keep going when l feel I’ve let God and everyone else down.”

We may write the theology of failure ourselves, but God can edit it and expand it into a higher philosophy. In fact, He can take those very failures we moan about and make them a basis for success. The fact l may have failed so much is because I have attempted so much. Some folk never fail because they never try to succeed. They never fall because they never try to climb.

But God has a word for us: “Fear not, thou worm Jacob . . . I will help thee . thou shalt thresh the mountains” (Isa 41:14,15). The original Jacob seemed a failure until God took hold of him. But out of this frail, fickle and feckless man came blessings massive and etemal.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

“A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love” – Anonymous

“A wrongdoer is often a man who has left something undone, not always one who has done something” – Antoninus

“The only correct actions are those which require no explanation and no apology” – Auerbach

“True politeness is perfect ease and freedom. It simply consists in treating others just as you love to be treated” – Lord Chesterfield

“A man can never be a true gentleman in manner until he is a true gentleman at heart” – Dickens

FOCUS – SOMETHING TO REALLY THINK ABOUT
LIVE IN JOY WITHOUT APOLOGY – Thomas Addington

“Go, eat your food with gladness, and drink your wine with a joyful heart, or it is now that God favours what you do. Always he clothed in white, and always anoints your head with oil. Enjoy life with your wife, whom you love, all the days of this meaningless life that God has given you under the sun-—all your meaningless days. For this is your lot in life and in your toilsome labour under the sun” – Ecclesiastes 9:7-9

If life is full of mysteries that can’t be solved, and if our rational mind-set is simply to trust that God understands what’s going on and that He has a solution to what seems like a gross inequity, then how should we act?

We now know that we’re not supposed to allow those conundrums to prevent us from moving forward in life and in a relationship with God. But in the face of those realities, what should our perspective on life be? The answer to that question is crystal-clear: Don’t let the lack of an obvious answer to those mysteries prevent you from genuinely enjoying the best of life.

The things we can’t possibly solve are better left to God. He will figure them out in His time and in His way. Our job is to eat the food and drink the wine He provides. It is to keep a joyful heart and enjoy the love of a_ spouse. In a way that allows very little wiggle room, Solomon tells us to have fun, eat well, and revel in a great marriage relationship. He even suggests that we wear clothes that show freshness to life.
But how does this all fit together? How can we look at the darkness around us and yet respond to life with such abandoned enthusiasm? We know Solomon well enough to understand that he’s not suggesting that we simply ignore the darkness in order to revel in the light. .His purpose is not to make us forget that bad things go on, but to acknowledge that after we have done everything we can in our power to make things right, the rest is up to God. He wants to remind us that the darkness caused by others must not take away the joy that God wants us to experience.

Are you experiencing joy despite the difficulties and inequities that you see and experience at work?
