Happy Sabbath #8

Proverbs 4:18-19

18 The road the righteous travel is like the sunrise, getting brighter and brighter until daylight has come.
19 The road of the wicked, however, is dark as night. Thay fall, but cannot see what they have stumbled over.

Translation of Philllipians 2:5-11

Our lives are not determined by what happens to us but by how we react to what happens, not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results. Storms (365 Days of Memories) tanslation of Philllipians 2:5-11.

Happy Sabbath # 7

I got this in an e-mail this week. Thought it is a great thought for the weekend. Happy Sabbath.
........... I Am a "Kept" child of God ...............

You see, there were a few times when I thought I would lose my mind, But GOD kept me sane. (Isa. 26:3)

There were times when I thought I could go on no longer, but the LORD kept me moving. (Gen 28:15)

At times, I've wanted to lash out at those whom I felt had done me
Wrong, but the LORD
kept my mouth shut. (Psa. 13)

Sometimes, I think the money just
isn't enough, but GOD has helped me to keep the lights on, the water on, the car paid, the house paid,
Etc.., (Matt. 6:25-34)

When I thought I would fall, HE
kept me up. When I thought I was weak, HE kept me strong! (I Pet. 5:7, Matt. 11:28-30)

Got something to add??

Verse: Psalm 91:2

I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him
I lean and rely, and in Him I confidently trust! HE kept me safe

Study Experiences

I love the Sabbath. I really appreciated the Sabbath when I was at University. It was the one day of the week I could take a break from studies without feeling guilty.

I studied early hours of the morning - between 2-4pm, this was when it was the most quiet. I ensure that I went to bed early and after studying I would sleep again. I am not sure it was the healthiest thing to do but for my circumstances it worked.

Reading the article below reminded of the different circumstances we as youth face. No matter what we can be assured that we can put our in God.

Lift up your head

Lord who lifts the needy out of the ash heap - Ps 113:7

We used to live in a single bed-room house during my entire schooling years. It always happened that our house was flooded with relatives or guests all the time or whenever there was a crucial exam around. I used to go to friends place sometimes to study but it was tough to do so always.

So, most of the times kitchen offered me solace. Since my mom used to be in the kitchen cooking for guests always, I had to find a place that doesn’t disturb my mom. I found one place indeed. There was a two square feet gap between the rice rack and fridge. I sat there and studied for all my exams. Kitchen used to be hot and the heat of the fridge would be like fuel to the fire.

Nevertheless, at that time, Education was the only weapon I had next to God. I will cry and hang on to him and say, “Lord, make me pass thro this period”. He did too. Today, am a engineering professional with a good take home pay.

Do we need any more explanation for God’s concern for needy people? He literally took me out of the ash heap and has placed me in a high mountain. Praise be to him. Are you needy? Are you in ash heap? Cast your hope in the Lord! He is our provider!
