WELCOME TO THIS CHRISTIAN WEBSITE

Welcome to this Christian Website which has now been going for a number of years. Over 130,000 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, Wisdom that Works by Bob Stevenson, 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.

AN IN WORD FOR YOU TODAY

The secret for full living for you is found in the Scriptural directive in facing and dealing with life simply a day at a time with the aid and blessing of the LORD. This is what He honours and is committed to, so as you adopt this principle and procedure, you will discover that you will get the most out of all that is done and associate with. Do not bring tomorrow’s demands into today and make everything more cumbersome and difficult. The LORD has covered and fully catered for the emerging hours and leaves tomorrow where it belongs, and so should you. Tomorrow with all that it holds is to be a surprise but today is to be oneof choice relationship with your LORD, discovering Him in a greater way and seeing Him do some very beautiful things of worth for you. New friendships to be born, fresh things faced and dealt with successively, new chapters to be written in your life’s adventure story. Have a good day, TODAY.

A GOLDEN PROMISE

“But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up
with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint” – Isaiah 40: 31

When we think of waiting, whether it is waiting in a car for a friend, waiting in a doctor’s office for an appointment, or waiting in a check out line, we might tend to think of waiting as being a time of inactivity or passivity. After all, while we are waiting, we aren’t actually doing anything… or are we?

When we wait for somebody or something, we are actually in a posture of submission to somebody or something. For example, if you are waiting in a car for a friend, you have positioned yourself to be vulnerable to however long your friend takes to come into the car. When you are waiting in a doctor’s office, you have given the doctor and his/her staff the power to choose who is next in line for their appointment.

While we may see waiting as inactive, it is actually the opposite in many cases. For me, a self-described ‘type A personality’, waiting can be very difficult at times. The longer I wait, the more I begin to scream on the inside for something to happen! For me, waiting isn’t passive or inactive, waiting is one of the most active things I can do.

In today’s promise, we read that if we wait on the Lord, He will renew our strength. When we choose to humble ourselves before Almighty God and acknowledge that it is His will and direction that we are looking for, we are positioning ourselves to wait for Him to give us the guidance we are looking for. When we wait on Him, we are honouring Him and choosing not to ‘lean to our own understanding’ as mentioned in Proverbs 3:5-6.

WISDOM THAT WORKS
WHERE YOUR HEART IS –  Rev. Bob Stevenson

“Listen, son of mine, to what I say… Keep these thoughts ever in mind; let them penetrate deep within your heart, for they will mean real life . . . and health. Above all else guard your affections for they influence everything else in your life. Spurn the careless kiss of a prostitute . . . Don? Get side-tracked . . . pull back from . . . danger”

Read: Proverbs 4:20-27

When somebody says “Above all else” we do well to take notice of what follows. Guard your heart or affections because they influence everything else in your life. How true those words are! Because the heart is the centre of our lives, certainly from a physical point of view, once your heart gets damaged you can be physically incapacitated. As well as the physical impact there is also the emotional trauma thatcomes when indecent liaisons damage your affections.

Jesus spoke about the capacity of the heart to defile the human spirit when he said that, “Out of the heart proceeds evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts and blasphemies”. That same capacity is available to bring out of the good treasure of the heart. That which is good and decent. In other words our heart can be influenced for evil or good. It’s the way i allow it to be influenced that brings the difference between a heart full of trash or a heart full of treasure.

Is it any wonder that this caring father says to his son, “Above all else” guard your heart or your affections? They are precious beyond measure, so keep them where your treasure is! After all Jesus says, “where your heart is that’s where your treasure will be” so be sure to guard it well!

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

It’s better to live forever in the grateful memory of one true heart, than to float for a little hour on the highest crest of fame. – Albertson

Do good and leave behind you a monument of virtue that the storm of life can never destroy. Write your name in kindness, love and mercy on the hearts of thousands you come in contact with year after year; you will never be forgotten. No, your name, your deeds will be as legible on the hearts you leave behind as the stars on the bow of the evening. Good deeds will shine as the stars of heaven. – Chalmers

No other fame can be compared with that of Jesus. He has a place in the human heart that no one who ever lived has in any measure rivalled. No name is pronounced with a tone of such love and veneration. All other laurels wither before His. His are ever kept fresh with tears of gratitude. – Channing
