When the 🌎World is 🤺Against You 😓

How often does it not happen we feel like the world being against us.

In this posting we may find pictograms for expressing what may be inside a persons heart and/or mind. Those thought may not always in line with what God expect from us.But feeling such bad way that does not mean we should act the same as we feel in our inner battle.

Knowing God is with us, we can conquer those bad feelings and try with our good heart to show brotherly love even to our enemies, in the hope to weaken their heart and showing the other ways of life, giving them an opportunity to come to see the light and the way to God.

Altitude begins with an attitude of gratitude


Altitude begins with an attitude of gratitude.

‘…with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God, and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, will guard you hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.’
Philippians 4:6-7

Dear God, I direct my eyes on You and trust You with all my heart.
I wouldn’t be without You.
Without your help I would not have moved much further in this wicked world.
Let me help You to make Yourself known to others
and let me enjoy Your benefits and share them with others in all simplicity.

Dutch version / Nederlandse versie > Hoogte begint met een houding van dankbaarheid.

Thought for today: Nothing to hard for God

Having come into a new year, we may have told others about our good intentions for 2019. Looking back at previous year we must admit we also had some good intention but were not capable to direct them all in the good direction.

Regularly we are confronted with matters we have difficulty to cope with. sometimes we wanted that God would have made our wishes possible. But our wishes, our wants, did not always become a reality. We also did not always get a positive result for the prayers we outed. Not everything we asked God came into existence or a reality we could live with.

We should know that nothing is impossible by God. He can do anything.

Is anything too hard (or too difficult) for Jehovah? {Genesis 18:14}

Nothing is too difficult or too hard for the Most High God above all gods. But that does not mean He wants to do everything we ask.

Did you encounter also such moments that you thought,

why did God not answer my prayers?

What are you asking God for that you are not trusting Him to provide His absolute best for you?

Do you trust His answer even when you don’t understand it?

Do you believe that there would be laid up for you a crown of righteousness (2Ti 4:8)?

If you believe first of all in the Only One True God and secondly in His sent one, the Lord Jesus,  and then wanted to repent of sin, willing to renew in heart, then you might be one of the Lord’s people, and there there shall be a place reserved for you, a crown laid up for you.

Our great initial need before God is to be justified, to have God Himself declare us not guilty, to have the Most High Lord pronounce us righteous in His sight. At first glance this appears to be an impossible situation for man. God, our Judge, is holy. Man is innately unholy.

“But we are all like an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags” (Isa 64:6).

Yahweh Forever Our Refreshing Strength

We should trust God and give Him control. all the world should know that nobody is like Him, even not Jesus, who many have made into their god. The God of Israel, the Unseen Eternal Being is the Most High Supreme Being surpassing any other god or human being. Jehovah, the God above all gods, is the One we should look for and worship, being thankful for what He created and for what He allows us to have.

Pure Glory

by Hazel Straub

There is no one like Yahweh God, he is all that we need. No matter how many times we fall and make a mess of our lives, Yahweh God is our strength and shelter. Even when our health fails and we are weak, he is always there for us and we can run to him and receive forgiveness and refreshment, for our body, soul and spirit. Yahweh is our Rock and strength, forever!

Whom have I in heaven but you? You’re all I want!
No one on earth means as much to me as you.
Lord, so many times I fail; I fall into disgrace.
But when I trust in you, I have a strong and glorious presence
protecting and anointing me. Forever you’re all I need! (Psalm 73:25-26 TPT)

Don’t Be Discouraged

We must know that living in a godless world many burdens and suffering may be part of every person being part of this word-system. Though every one who has found God and has come to believe in His sent one, shall find consolation that we shall come closer to a time when the Most High shall bring a turn-over.

Though people of the earth have ruined it, because they do not follow God’s teachings or do not obey God’s laws. Those who kept to the agreement with God that was to last forever, shall soon hear songs from every part of the earth, praising God, the Righteous One. The Almighty God has always done what He said He would do and has done what He planned long ago, and as such we may trust Him Who not only renews us but shall renew the whole earth, stopping the violent attacks on us, as a cloud cools a hot day, Jehovah shall silence the songs of those who have no mercy.

In Him we may have hope and shall come to see that He will wipe away every tear from every face. He will take away the shame of His people from the earth. (Isaiah 24-25)

Verse of the Day:  2 Corinthians 4:16

Therefore, we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.

Life is sometimes hard and the world can be a mean and lonely place not to mention the pressure we put on ourselves to be perfect.  Don’t be discouraged, don’t give up, this world and everything in it is only temporary.  Turn to God and let your spirit be renewed by his love and grace.

To will being present in us but to do it not always evident

Looking at today’s reading we do find the apostle Paul who laments not understanding his own actions, even acknowledging that he even comes to do things he more than not likes.

Romans 7:15 (RNKJV)
15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.

English: Apostle Paul in the apse

Apostle Paul in the apse (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

How often do we notice we have done something to some one else what we hate ourselves.  When we loo at our actions we can even see that we sometimes do the very thing we hate, but that we also sometimes have the desire to do what is right but not the ability to carry it out.

Romans 7:18 (RNKJV)
18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.

It can well be that the will to do good may be present with you and me, but how often we do not have to admit that in us there where more stronger elements that hindered us to do the right thing. We must admit that our flesh is weak.

Matthew 26:41 (RNKJV)
41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

We know we do have to do good. We do know that we have been given an example and that we should follow him, who gave his life for us. We do know that Nazarene asked his followers to go out into the world and to preach the coming Kingdom of God. But much too often we are too afraid to open our mouth and tell others that we are following Jesus and trust his judgement and look forward to his and his heavenly Father’s Kingdom.

That fear for what people might think lets many not dare to talk about God and His son.

We are confronted with our “will” and our “performance” and must confess they are not in line with each other and often not in balance to.

We must be aware that first of all we must recognise that we can  either live according to the flesh setting our minds on the things of the flesh, or go for the things we might perhaps not see so clear and live according to the Spirit setting our minds on the things of the Spirit, believing what the Word of God brings to mankind black on white and not according human doctrines.

We should know that a lot of people prefer to hold on to human traditions, having the different feasts, not in accordance to God’s feasts. There are lots of people who prefer to hold on the ‘stories’ or ‘tales’ about parts of our body that might go to other places when we die. Lots of people love to have someone else to blame for the faults they do themselves. They like it to shift the guilt from themselves to a demon, they call Satan. They think by doing so they will be found less guilty. Others love to use that figure and places of torture to frighten others, so that they can keep power over them or can have them join their community, where fear preaching is the core business next to the entertainment they try to offer to please people, instead of spending more time to the Bible writings.

Lots of people want to find a church which can bring them worldly pleasures, nice songs and something exiting, like thriller stories, tales about places where people shall be tortured for ever, though they are the lucky ones that can escape because they are saved and should not worry. They love to hear that they do not have to do any work any more and that they can sleep on their two ears.

The majority of people prefer to set the mind on the flesh, not willing to know that it is death, whilst setting the mind on the Spirit shall be life and peace.

When we do know that even a called one of Christ knew the difficulty of what was going on in his body, we should have hope.

Romans 7:18 (RNKJV)
18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.

We should know that we are better to leave the world for what it is and be not afraid to tell it how we go for the sent one from God and putting our trust in God. There is no “life and peace” until we develop a spiritual relationship with our Lord. Those who do this are no longer in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you.

In case we do trust God and feel it more important to live according to His Will instead of living according to the will of the people around us that we shall find it easier to live without fear, with at a spirit of power and love and self-control.

2 Timothy 1:7 (RNKJV)
7 For יהוה hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

With that spirit Jehovah has given us we can move mountains. Setting our minds on the by Christ renewed relationship we are “set free” and experience the reality of the Proverb,

Proverbs 4:18 (RNKJV)
18 But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.

When you find that we are living in dark days please do see the light provided by the Most High and try to take others with you too on the right path of the righteous, being prepared for the day when Jesus is going to return.

Many opportunities given by God

I often did not have it easy in my life. Certain choices also made it that I got myself in more trouble than if I would have followed the mainstream.

Career Opportunities (film)

Career Opportunities (film) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

First there was the choice of my profession. Having being brought up in the Old Roman Catholic church, having been an acolyte, wanting to be working for God, becoming a priest was a first option, but then I was not allowed to marry, and I loved to much women. I also loved very much musicals and wanted to be an artist, able to sing and dance. when I asked to study that I got a slap in my face and was told I could better become a garbage man than an artist. In secret I started lessons and worked in my spare time to pay for the study. It was a good thing about that time time Europe had to build itself up again and had to find its way to restore from the horror of wars and the political systems which brought Europe unto the swamp.

Being so much interested in God, having had to learn the Catechism, comparing to what was written in the Scriptures I soon found out that the Catholic Faith (be it the Roman, Charismatic or Orthodox) was not according to Biblical teachings. This made it again difficult for my parents and me, creating a conflict on theological matters now. After some church shopping, having looked at different protestant denominations, I chose for a non-trinitarian church (the Baptist Church at that time and when the Baptists moved more to Trinitarianism I, like thousands of my brethren and sisters chose for an other non-trinitarian group: the Christadelphians)

Concerned about the world I also stood on the barricades in 1968, hoping for a better world. Becoming a dancer I also more than once had to face the difficulties of my body which also more than once was pushed in the corner by accidents or by my autoimmune illness. Continually I had to prove myself and found that I had to restart my life again. Later the children sometimes asked “Why did you do not that?”  or asked “Why did you not get that role?” or “Why did he got that position instead of you?”. It looked strange for them that I made certain ethical choices and did not want to do certain things to get a certain position. At the end of the trail, now being retired I do not have to shame myself for everything I did. And looking back on my career I must confess that I have really being blessed, being able my whole life to do what I loved to do and having been able to refuse several jobs because I did not like them or did not find them appropriate for a Christian to do (or did not want to do what they hoped for, for giving me that role or position).

In the end I can see how I was blessed and how there was an Incredible Strong Hand that pushed me in certain directions or got me up again when I was in the trenches. I was very lucky to have done fantastic work and having worked with fantastic people, international stars as well as with incredible people who, like me would only be known by their stage name or be forgotten soon.

Under this (official civil name) name I am writing I often was bullied because I did not hesitate to say my opinion or to speak about my faith which was not according to the main Christian majority. Once more I felt the Strong Hand of God, Who guided me and gave me further insight.

We may encounter lots of moments of darkness in our life, but by the sun-rays which brake the darkness we should come to see the better end of it. I had some horrible experiences in my life, which I would not wish any body would have such ones. But they helped me to help others and they also helped me to become strengthened or to know I was on the right way to show others how they have to behave or not have to behave. (For one incident: Though I never know what happened to a gang of seven that once attacked me with a knife in Chiswick Park, I do know I came out alive of it by keeping calm and trusting God.)

Over the years I also came to see how God uses the different elements/groups or denominations in Christendom to bring people from those different parts of the Body of Christ together in unity with Christ. Though for some it might take many years. But God is patient and we as Christians should also be patient with those we want to bring to Christ, getting them to believe that Jesus is the Way to God and not God himself.

In the meantime God is also helping others of different faith to build up a life, so that they too shall come to see how God helps them in their life.

Today I also want to bring an other case than myself to attention.

On the net you may find a blog which

“is a testimony of God’s goodness, protection and guidance over me and my family.” {Surpises: Bad news turned to Good!}

it’s from a person who is been working with for almost all of her tenure in the financial industry. She writes

Surprisingly, we lost the bid! Another bigger company took over the account, leaving our company with a devastating, disappointing news. {Surpises: Bad news turned to Good!}

She confidently,  was not affected by the bad news and is convinced that

God has gone ahead of this scene, He knew it would come. And He knew, that I would be the very first one to feel fearful among all my colleagues. Why? I have all the reasons why, I am not as competitive as they are – being in the sales industry, my achievements were not at par as what my colleagues had produced. I would be in the bottom list, definitely! {Surpises: Bad news turned to Good!}

Like I had certain feelings in my life the author of that blog also has the feeling God assured me of the things that may come to pass. She writes

Last year, the Lord has been very busy preparing me and my husband with so many things, including the planning and executions.

We have gone to the most “thriftiest” way we can save money, He gave us a house , He brought the desire of going back home, instead. He gave a new sustainable job for my husband, He increased our commission in ways that we can finish all our goals for 2016. And finally we come up to an answer, that hey, I will finish my job this March 2017. {Surpises: Bad news turned to Good!}

Please do read more about her experiences and her telling about their family’s life circumstances

We all had a fair share of life circumstances. 2014, we lost our dad due to cancer, my husband lost his lolo due to old age, we had 2 series of unemployments and some financial problems. 2015, it’s like the continuation of 2014, consoling our mom during our mourning season, separation and long-distance childcare, 1 unemployment and financial struggle. 2016, was a good year, God restored all that we wanted to pursue, those that we missed, savings goals, dreams, home acquisition, clearer goals and more. 2017, is still uncertain, we have expectations and even before we embark to this year, God already had confirmations of what to expect and we are excited with that.
Through it all, there is one important thing that God wants us to inhabit in our hearts, it is about “gratefulness”. {New Perspective: Gratefulness and Thankfulness}

And find that

we would learn how to cultivate a life of gratefulness and thankfulness. Learning to appreaciate every season in our lives, that we will not give up on ourselves because God never did, and even if there are some struggles and life- circumstances – God is always there so inclined and willing to help and guide us.

In all things, give God praise, not only for the gifts that He gives, but because we understand that He is the source of all things. Our giver and our Father. Learn to be grateful even in the little, so when the big one comes, we will be more grateful. 🙂
Be thankful, always! {New Perspective: Gratefulness and Thankfulness}

Life

Sammy Jenny  is a young lady who loves writing, poetry and music. About her blog Sprinkle of thoughts site she says it is  is about pouring out her thoughts about life issues. It’s to inspire and motivate people out there who might be going through certain circumstances and trying to see/live life positively.

For her

Life is but a journey, with its ups and downs bue we are called to be fighters and walking with Faith knowing things will fall in place evntually.

She believes in this life

we go through some situations that can actually make us grow mad;

and says:

I mean you just find yourself screaming and saying all sorts of horrible things out of anger. But have you just sat for a moment and wondered how the other person felt? You might be hurt, disappointed, disgusted and you name it. Yes, we all do make mistakes and they could be so childish,wrong, heartbreaking etc but those words you say, how helpful will they be at the moment? Will the situation change? You’ll tell me ‘if I don’t say these things he won’t understand how bad his actions are‘. {Don’t let it get to you}

No matter what happens in this life perhaps we have to remember that

no one has the right to say you are nobody for we were wonderfully made with a purpose and even if you feel like nothing’s working out for you, you’ll get there eventually.

Just never give up and trust in God. Everything will fall in place and never lose sight of your dream for while they see you as crazy, you will come out glorious and stronger than before. Just never forget that.

So, no matter what you may be going through, let no one try to break u down, let no words of hurt,curse,hate,anger get to u. And when those words do come at you, respond with silence for it kills to see someone you’re trying to break be as silent as a tomb. And if you’re to say anything, just say thank you. Even if they aren’t your blessing with their words, be theirs with your words. But no matter what,don’t let it get to u. {Don’t let it get to you}

sprinkle of thoughts

Life should not just be a mistake but a lesson

It should not just be sorrow but joy

It should not just be laborious but fruitful

It should not just be of failures but full of success

It should not just be of misery but wealth

It should not just be full of danger but full of safe paths too

All in all, life should be a mixture of everything

Both good and bad

It isn’t a bed of roses but one with thorns on them

And u need to be strong to get through them

Learn from your mistakes and you shall never make them again

Learn to laugh at your troubles and u shall never lack what to laugh at

Live it the way you want to but be ready to account for it in the end

Be yourself and let people love you for who you…
