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

He who has called you to be and to do is the One that is with you to supply all the spiritual requirements to attain a great, quality character and to do things that are beyond the ordinary. Of course, you will be able to perform readily the natural demands each day but He is alongside to bring about the extra in and through you. So do not settle for less than what He has in mind for you. Daily faith and living is purposed to open you up and out into a very full, meaningful, profitable and pleasurable existence and experience. His summons therefore is to an ever-increasing expression of Himself and all His immense resources are immediately at hand to accomplish such. Be encouraged by what He has wrought through others who seemed to be nobodies, but made them into people of outstanding worth. He will do the same for you as you allow Him.

A GOLDEN PROMISE

”The name of Yahweh is a strong tower: the righteous run to him, and are safe” – Proverbs 18: 10

The name of our Lord and God is a strong tower, a mighty fortress that we can run to any time, night or day, and find safety. Psalm 91 talks about this strong tower being ‘the secret place of the Most High’. It is a place where we can stay our entire lives, dwelling under the shadow of the Almighty.

Many of the anxieties that we experience in our society come from a place where we do not feel safe and secure. God is our strong tower! We can rest assured that safety is found in the borders of His love. What father wouldn’t have a heart to protect his children?

God is the perfect Father and promises to be there for us…as a fortress that we can depend on for shelter. When I think of this promise, I feel peace in my heart knowing that I have a safe place where I can go, and so do you!

JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linford
BUBBLES

Paul warned his converts of the force of “philosophy and vain deceit” by which their minds could be assaulted and their lives become a prey to “intellectualism or high-sounding nonsense” (Col 2:3, J B Phillips). The Greek for “vain” is Kenos, meaning “empty”. Much of human philosophy is like a bubble, attractive but empty, beautiful but liable to burst.

Millai’s famous picture of his grandson blowing bubbles later used as an advert for Pear’s soap) is pretty, but conveys the concept of childhood dreams that are pretty but ephemeral.

Bunyan’s “Pilgrim’s Progress” gives us a more sinister portrait of “bubble-mindedness”. An old man is grasping at a pretty bubble, while a golden crown is just above his head.

To young and old are presented ideas that are attractive but empty. Man’s concept of beauty and goodness fall short of divine truth. Yet again and again the human mind prefers man’s fumblings to God’s realities.

In a day of many superficial dogmas and phrenetic ideas, we need to discover and dwell on the wholesome and soul- building truth revealed in the Scriptures, the inspired and profitable Word of God (2 Tim 3:16,17).

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

“True contentment is the power of getting out of any situation all that there is in it” – Chesterton

“Enjoy your own life without comparing it with that of another” – Condorcet

“There is a sufficiency in the world for man’s need but not for man’s greed” – Gandhi

“Be happy with what you have and are, be generous with both, and you won’t have to hunt for happiness” – Gladstone

FOCUS – SOMETHING TO REALLY THINK ABOUT
WISE WORDS – Thomas Addington

“Words from a wise man are gracious, but a fool is consumed by his own lips. At the beginning his words are folly, at the end they are wicked madness-—and the fool

It is amazing how much people love to talk about themselves. Sit next to the typical person at a business lunch or around the conference table before a meeting starts, and he will almost always direct conversation to what he thinks, what he likes, what he did, or what he accomplished. Seldom does anyone show any interest in asking about you. In fact, sometimes the conversations are so one-sided they are almost comical. It doesn’t matter how long the two of you talk—you get the feeling that if you extended the conversation another four days, the topic would never change.
One of the things that distinguish a wise person from a foolish person is the extent to which he talks about himself and whether his conversations have substance.

Solomon says that “the fool multiplies words” (Ecclesiastes 10:14). In other words, foolish individuals talk a lot but don’t necessarily say very much in the process. They offer long explanations without answering any questions. They sometimes talk just for the sake of speaking. While their words might be eloquent, when the whole conversation is over and you have time to reflect, you’re really not sure that they said anything of substance.

In contrast, words that come from a wise man are gracious words. They are courteous and thoughtful. They are logical and shed light on a situation. A wise man may not speak as often or use as many words as someone else, but the words he does say have real impact. People can’t deny their power and the advice that they represent. It takes very few wise words to completely silence the many words of a fool.
