I count it but loss, for the sake of the cross…

“But whatever former things were gains to me  [as I thought then],  these things  [once regarded as advancements in merit] I have come to consider as loss  [absolutely worthless] for the sake of Christ [and the purpose which He has given my life].” ‭‭~PHILIPPIANS‬ ‭3:7‬~ In the last 3 years out of the 33 or so years, I have been a conscious Christian I have only just started to grasp the meaning of this verse.  It was around 3 years ago that I awoke to the most important realization of my life.  The message of the gospel is life-saving and all people need saving. The mission truly became real to me.  Since that time as the urgency of the gospel message took hold, everything in my life began to change, suddenly the things that used to count seemed so unimportant, so vain, so temporal, so plastic The words of Ecclesiastes…

What does it all mean?

What does it all mean?   Have you been pondering the meaning of life? I have. With more and more crisis happening all around the world and the travesties that are occurring, diseases, disasters… it all leaves me feeling that so much of what we treasure might just actually be meaningless. The more I hear of the world news, the less I want to eat lavishly, shop extravagantly, buy unnecessarily, spend time frivolously, have more material possessions, the latest this and the latest that… We take none of these things with us.  I find that ‘things’ are losing their meaning to me. I want to use my time so much more wisely, give where the needs are, pray for those suffering, use my influence for good in every way I can. The things that used to hold some attraction have seriously become tarnished and the amount of waste in our lives is beginning to…

To everything there is a season…

To everything there is a season… ✽¸.•♥♥•. Ecclesiastes 3:1 .•♥♥•.¸✽ To every thing there is a season, and a time for every purpose under the heavens:   ***To everything there is a season…. God created earthly seasons… He also created other seasons that we find ourselves in. A season is a season.. A season doesn’t last forever. It is a season! ***A time for every purpose under heaven… There is a purpose that He has for us right now. This is the time for it. Do you know what the purpose is? If you do then listen out and follow His lead If you don’t know then look around you, it’s probably right under your nose! ***Under the heavens… We are under the heavens no matter where we are. We are under the covering of God. We need to stay under His cover When we stay under His cover then…

What are things really worth after all???

Ecclesiastes 2:1-11 “I said in my heart, Come now, I will test you with mirth; therefore consider and behold goodness; this also is vanity. I said of laughter, It is madness; and of mirth, What does it do? I sought in my heart to drag my flesh with wine, yet leading my heart with wisdom; and to lay hold on folly, until I might see where the good for the sons of men might be, what they should do under the heavens all the days of their life. I made my works great; I built houses for myself; I planted vineyards for myself. I made gardens and orchards for myself, And I planted trees in them, of all fruit. I made pools of water for myself, to water the forest shooting forth trees. I bought slaves and slave women, and sons of the house were mine; also livestock, a herd…

All aboard…

  ~All aboard~ What ship are you on?  Are you on a party ship? A war ship? A sailing ship? Are you on a speed boat? Some people are on cruise ships, some are on working ships. some people are on cargo ships. And some people are on hospital ships. We are all on different ships. We are on these ships for different reasons and seasons. We are all in different weather and are stopping at different ports, and there are different crew and passengers on our ships. Its not about what ship you would necessarily like to be on, I mean who wouldn’t want to be on a luxury cruise liner? This is about what ship you really are on, metaphorically speaking of course. It was actually a few months ago that God showed me a picture. He showed me that I’m on a hospital ship. It made sense straight away. He showed me that there are many types…

~Who, Where, What, Why, How~

  ~Who, Where, What, Where & How~ Learning who we are, why we are, what we are and where we are, and how we are is a very handy thing to know and will make life a whole lot more easier. We all ‘tick’ differently, we have different purposes and plans. Its meant to be that way for a reason as we all have a different destiny to fulfil. Accept it and understand it and then everything will make more sense and the world will be a whole lot less complicated. If it were not so then so many things would be left undone, unsaid, unknown. We need to be all we can be in the most balanced way possible, we need to live our potential. We need to allow ourselves to be changed, refined, moulded and transformed into the best US that we can be, then we will do more…
