It’s my life

Is the Life we live truly ours?

May be it will be ours if we can decide to keep the life for as long as we want to.

Isaiah 40:7-8 (AMP) The grass withers, the flower fades, when the breath of the Lord blows upon it; surely [all] the people are like grass, the grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.

We can only trust and hand our Lives over to God who can see tomorrow, who can keep our Lives and even raise it up even in death.

Jesus Christ has paid the ultimate prize with His life for all that will believe and accept Him, He can keep our lives now and in the hereafter. This is evident in the fact that He is only one who in history died and rose again.

In John 2:22 (AMP) we see that when Jesus rose from the dead His disciples remembered that He told them He will rise after death and they believe.

So you see it is possible you doubt or you are not sure if you should believe Jesus, you are not alone in this just as the disciples of Jesus at a time, but what are you still doing disbelieving after He has risen from the dead!

Or may be you believe but you’d rather not be a disciple and you’d follow from afar, that will only put you in a more difficult state, remember Peter.

Get up stand up for Jesus, He is the risen Lord and He is alive to keep you from the final death and to justify and glorify you.

For whoever is bent on saving his [temporal] life [his comfort and security here] shall lose it [eternal life]; and whoever loses his life [his comfort and security here] for My sake shall find it [life everlasting] Matthew 16:25 (AMP).

Please reflect on this as Easter Holidays approaches…

Skillfully Crafted

As human beings we often see it as important to look and feel good especially with our dressing and other things that promote our sense of well-being. To an extent this is okay as long as our focus is on being presentable and happy to achieve a good course we set out for.

But when the intention is for want of accolades from friends, colleagues and the likes or just merely to impress people then it needs to be checked.

How then would you feel when such praises do not come or worse off if a non-complementary comment is made?

Many a times, true and lasting self-esteem comes from within. A lady can wear an expensive attire and look dejected with the feeling of not being sure of acceptance whilst another puts on a less expensive one with an aura of self-fulfillment and worth, and if you ask me I’d rather hang out with the latter.

Our worth as a person is usually based on the values we have on our inside.

What do you know about your worth as a person?

God created us in His own image, can you fathom that?

Psalms 139: 14 – 15 nkjv of God’s Word that abides forever has this to say;

I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are your works,

And that my soul knows very well.

My frame was not hidden from you,

When I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

Enough said, you are the best of your kind, you are skillfully crafted by your maker.

You are not a counterfeit as no one was the original of you.

More than anything else God loves you and placed a price on you that could not be paid by anything else but by the blood of His Son.

What say you? You are loved!
