Methodical means systematic. Like a computer you do things in the correct order in order to be the most efficient.
Have you ever been camping and lost your phone or other important item on the ground? Did you panic and search for it in random locations and then get super stressed as you could not call for help?
Maybe you left it by the river where you had a shower, came up to camp and then realised you have not got it anymore.
You search your left trouser pocket then your trouser leg pocket then wrongly your left pocket again as you are panicking and not thinking right.
You search the ground at random locations and then your rucksack and then your left pocket again.
You are panicking and run to the river. You break down and cry as you have no phone.
After you have read this post you will know what to do instead of what is written above.
The first thing to do when you lose something is tell yourself not to panic. Be calm and be systematic.
Time one minute on your watch to think back in your mind where you have just been and where it could be. If it does not come to mind then start your search.
Search the pockets of the clothes you are wearing but do it systematically. What I mean is left then right pockets and the rest but make sure you do not repeat any pockets.
Search your rucksack and other areas but do it systematically.
When you search the ground by the river later on, pick a section of ground maybe 4 meters by 4 meters and scan each square meter from the top left to the top right. Then do the second row from left to right. Then row 3 and 4. This is what I mean by systematic.
So you still cannot find it. Panicking and stressing does not help anything so tell yourself the truth that it will turn up soon. Now your not panicking you can make a plan e.g. work out the closest direction to a pay phone. I have always found that the item turned up after this.
Did you know that when you hoover the floor at home, doing it systematically from top left to top right and so on like searching at the river, will make it seem like a lot less time.
Apply this way of working to the way you do survival and you will win.
Oh crap! Where’s my chocolate? 😋🍫
Bless ya 💛
I have been through a bit of a tribulation period in my life and came through it.
God let this this happen in order that I would learn to look after myself and then pass this wisdom on to others in order to help them look after themselves.
This is the Big Lessons (BL) series:
Are you always struggling with the same old sins? Do you end up feeling down as the tempter got you again and then told you your muppet after?
What if you have a few sins that always re-occur but one of them is the root. What if they all went if the root went.
What I mean is maybe one sin is making you a mess and when you struggle to give up, this sin produces other sins to compensate, like a lilo i.e. you push down one part of the lilo (maybe smoking), and another part of the lilo pops up (maybe Ben and Jerry’s icecream). Result is you get fat or feel rubbish smoking: https://wisdomfortoday.blog/2019/03/16/a-sacred-place-that-i-want-to-protect/
Tackle your root sin. Draw a graph of how and when you sin in order to work out what your root is. What a clever way to repent and have a joyful life instead as sin will make a Christian a shaky mess. See how wisdom tastes and smells instead:
Proverbs 3:13 ESV “Blessed is the one who finds wisdom, and the one who gets understanding”
Sin does make you a mess:
Target your worst sin and get rid of it. It is smoking in the above paragraphs as it is highly addictive. You might scoff delicious chocolates for a while like I do, but soon you will adapt.
Wanting to escape reality with chocolate, smoking, drinking and other routes will make you an addict. Being an addict will obviously be reflected in the way you relate to people e.g. you will only seek what you want to get your fix and people will not like you.
Have a trusted Brother or Sister in Christ to be accountable to about your sin problems and make sure you pray about it. Learn wisdom in order to cleverly conquer it. There is a whole book in the bible devoted to wisdom. The book of Proverbs. Get wisdom, it is delicious!
If you Relax And Try, you will not feel like the dude in the image above.
Things seem to be a bit stormy in the world at the moment. At least that is the way it seems to me in the UK due to brexit.
If you are having to deal with stressful situations e.g. people are being mean to you, you have lots of jobs you must finish or even if it is just coping with normal life, then I have a game changing solution.
When your body is in a relaxed state, your brain is able to make more complete decisions. This way you will be successful in what you are doing as you will make rational decisions.
It seems simple but if you Relax And Try (RAT) as hard as you can then you will win.
When you believe that you are able, it would be a good idea to practice your patience by deliberately choosing a busy supermarket queue so that you practice. See how perfectly you can manage it. Youths may be yelling at each other in the queue but stand firm as your relaxed mind knows you are on the right side of the law. Minions barge you but again you know the law and if you let them hit you with no provocation then you actually win as they go in the cell.
The opposite is getting yourself anxious as they intimidate you and then you give the fight response of the fight or flight in built natural reaction we all have. This will make you start shouting and hitting out which will then get you in the cell while the minions go and kick a homeless man before they get home where they plan more evil. Running away which is the flight response will get you in a cell too as people will not understand. Lets face it guys, anti-semitism is on the rise and the UK is in a bit of a mess.
Jesus will do the rest for you if you Relax And Try as hard as you can.
Find ways to relax e.g. focus on your breathing or focus on the soles of your shoes as you walk along. Invent ways to be mindful and research mindfullness in order to relax.
Learn this well and it will become a habit in a few weeks. You will feel empowered and be able to thrive in and not just survive the current times.
This is a powerful proverb and if you get the hang of it you will win.
Proverb 16:32 ESV
“Better a patient person than a warrior, one who holds his temper than one who takes a whole city”
That is a whole city. That is how powerful the virtue of patience is.
I will just say first that praising Jesus is the best way to avoid the mark.
Don’t be scared of this post. Fear and excitement are very similar therefore you can switch it in your mind easily to be excited instead when you are afraid.
Alternate Nostril Breathing (ANB) can be used as a form of relaxation also. Just incase it is not the end of the world lol.
Fear and excitement are similar emotions thus you can switch your fear to excitement at any time e.g. in awe, witness the miracles of God like lightning strike people who carry out evil deeds. Sounds fair.
The last book of the 66 books in the bible is Revelation.
This book uses symbolic language to explain end times and how God will rescue His children and bring them into heaven.
This is the last battle that will occur ever. CS Lewis in the Chronicles of Narnia made this the last of the Chronicles and called this book “The last battle”. This book is written for children so that they can understand appropriately. The metaphors made explain the Gospel e.g. Aslan the lion being Jesus.
In this battle the devil will try and stop you getting to heaven. Revelation speaks of people being given the mark of the beast AKA the mark of the devil. That is sealed with the mark for destruction.
Revelation 13:16 (ESV)
‘Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, ‘
Why? Your frontal lobe is where your imagination is. The mark is on your frontal lobe and consists of your imagination being sealed up completely.
Alternate Nostril Breathing frees up your frontal lobe:
NB. Look at the rude hand gesture that it makes, that points away from your imagination location. Just a clue. What is the actual meaning of that hand gesture. 🙂
Christians you say that you are safe from the mark. That is true, but what if with a bit of faith and understanding, ANB is one of the things that you can use can to be safe.
Praising Jesus is the main thing to do and the difference this makes is tangible. Think thoughts of praise in your mind if you are in a dangerous situation. A good pastor once told me that if you can praise God in a difficult situation then it shows you are a strong Christian.
Reading a story book helps too. Gets the imagination going again.
Christians have been known to sing praise aloud before being fed to lions so it is your call about praising Jesus in your mind. Makes for a tastier Christian.
NB. I would never add or take from the words of the bible. I offer this advice through my experience of being persecuted by the system.
Look at the music artist Byork’s album covers and read about how the system (media in this case) gave her red mist i.e. you see red mist when you are angry and then you go for people. The system tried to stop her beautiful and imaginative music by enraging her.
A sacred place that I want to protect is a blog post that discusses the imagination also:
Fold up bikes are great for bus and train. Wisely choose a good quality one that is not too pricey.
Get your tyres pumped up solid and go for a ride down and a hill and along flat which is more pleasant than up hill, fold your bike and get the bus back up the hill.
Proverbs 3:17 ESV
“Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.”
Always bring a puncture repair kit and a spare inner tube if you are able to mend punctures. Pay for slime to be put in your tyres at a bike shop if you cannot repair punctures. It seals the puncture holes as you go along as the air from the hole binds the slime. Slime binding 😋
Helmet, lights and high visibility jacket too obviously.
The law states that it is up to the bus driver’s discretion if you can bring the fold up bike onto the bus or not. Basicaly, if you spend about £150 first hand on a fold up bike or get a second hand one that was worth that much, then you will get one that can be compact enough e.g. pedals that fold inward.
I had an old banger of a fold up bike that I got in a charity shop. One grumpy bus driver said no and I chatted to another bus driver about the youth of today after he let me on. Ah, when I was a lad we had downhill contests on our penny farthings 😋
This post is especially relevant if you are elderely.
What a super present for the one you love.
I want you to enjoy Summer when it comes along. It is all about staying healthy and enjoying the sunshine. I have said a few things in another blog post about how the sunshine can help you:
Slarlom, oops er shalom ☺
I was just thinking about my new vampire E-cig fluid today when a young lady who looked just like a vampire passed me. She was dangerously pretty and of course this must have been a sign to write this post.
What I am really getting at is that we need our vitamin D, and a good way to get it is to get some sunshine on your face without looking at the sun directly.
It actually does a lot more than just vitamin D – do a bit of research as it makes you feel so much better inside.
I reckon it is spiritual also. Maybe the science brain Seasonal Effective Disorder (SAD) and/or the spiritual mind light into the soul.
You can get Vitamin D through a window but much much less so don’t stay on GTA 5 all day, get out and go for a coffee somewhere or at least go to a gaming convention and pwn somebody 🙂
Get other sources of vitamin D when it is not sunny. Do your Interweb research e.g. blood theft prevention:
Proverbs 4:18-19 ESV
The path of the righteous is like the first light of day shining ever brighter till the full light of day. The path of the wicked is like deep darkness, they do not know what they stumble over.
Your frontal lobe in your brain is where your imagination is, the place where the heavenlies are for you, the place where you run away to Abba Father as a child – a sacred place.
It is the place that witches and other such minions obviously try and target.
Having funny imaginations is absolutely fine and just like Elijah at mount Carmel, if you mock their magic (you can do this in your imaginations) and have a good chuckle, it’s power will be brought to it’s knees.
Brothers and Sisters, smoking is not a sin but you would be much happier off of them and so Jesus would be happy for you too.
When you quit smoking, life feels so much richer, sometimes like when you were a child. The chemicals in cigarettes do not do your frontal lobe any good. Remember that is where your imagination is.
No smoking is by far the best way but if you want to cut down then quit then get a ecig but be very careful with your liquids please. Assess how it makes you feel after a few puffs please.
Buying a proper E-cigarette which costs about £100 (you can also get more affordable deals which are less):
• 5000 unknown chemicals in cigarettes. Only 72 unknown in E-cig fluid.
• Any flavour from strawberry to chocolate to jam donut.
• Cut down nicotine levels over time easily by buying different levels in your liquid.
• Changeable amount of vapour.
• They have been out for a while now (“no one knows the long-term effects” is old now) and they are safe e.g. diactol which causes popcorn lung has been removed from the liquids.
This has got me off fags for two years and I have done a half-marathon. I puff on my E-cig like a chimney with 6mg nicotine in my fluids. Do not puff that much yourself please. I am highlighting that you can be fit on an ecig.
Print this stronghold buster out and use once a day for two months. Just read it – don’t struggle through it but do it:
In Jehovah Ratha’s name I affirm smoking hurts me and others a lot as it is a nasty habit therefore I will quit smoking so I can bless this temple of the Holy Spirit that has been bought with a price:
• Feel fresher and more attractive
• Smell nice
• not be in slavery
• more understanding thus less stress
• have more money
• holier to serve
• enjoy e-cig flavours
• life is richer
• Smoking is nasty and destroys me
• add other reasons you can think of
I smash my habit of smoking to pieces, in Jesus name!
Thank you Jesus that I will quit smoking and feel great as I can do all things in Christ who strengthens me.
Any problems after that then go to a pipe at least as the tobacco is less damaging.
What if all these grumpy people in parliment indirectly and unknowingly bring this nation togethor in love and also set a pattern for other nations to do so too?
All their having a go at each other and making silly rules that evidently don’t work, leads this country into a right pickle.
But is it such a pickle in the long run? What if this nation is forced into a situation where we will need to help each other as things get so bad.
Anyway, half of the country got what they did not want in the vote and if it works or not, the main problem IMO is the anxiety and fear that surrounds the whole blummin thing. It would have worked either way if it was not for the fear and anxiety.
This is the same thinking but suited better to the more academic sort:
Romans 8:28 “And we know in all things, God works for the good of those who love him, those who are called according to his purpose.”
So maybe the Brexiter’s will be part of the “all things”.
I said it before and I will say it again. We need the Lord Jesus on our side as in our own strength we are just naughty naughty no matter how hard we try.
He loves you unconditionaly no matter how naughty we have been so just pray and mean this:
“Lord Jesus I realise I am a human and I struggle with being naughty, you said in your love letter (the bible), that you would forgive me. Please forgive me and help me to be a better person and love my neighbour. Jesus I believe you are God and that you rose from the dead after the cross where you died for my sins”.
Let’s learn to love our neighbour in this time of pickle. We may see another way of life and so end up better than we were with the riches we had before Brexit i.e. we will be drinking chicken soup for our souls and not bloating over lobster.
You can turn fear to excitement by the way. They are emotions that are not very far from each other. You can switch it in your mind.
Check out this post too. It will help you with any worry about the news:
This is important; we all love complaining about Brexit (including me 😋), but lets add discussion of solutions to our conversations too.
I have been walking round my home town recently and I am happy to say that I have been more relaxed about the recent zombie outbreak. Morag and Slemmith seem to be getting on better now.
However some bloaters seem to have escaped the barricade.
A good diet with clever ways to do it:
Do the above and see how much better you feel. You will be surprised.
I did this and you should too as you can eat healthy and be without joy (above and below is recommended though):
“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”
Matthew 6:33 ESV
Quantum carbon fiber micro chips that take off, the mind bending psychology professor with a remarkably massive forehead, the latest temporary television star that is shaking your heart so much that you sprint down the road to buy Hello magazine. And then the old lady who you met by the bus stop one morning who gave you a hug because you were feeling down.
In my opinion the old lady wins straight away. Not that science, brains and some TV is not good. Do you remember how the hug felt though. Like you were touched by a small bit of heaven. Like deep down in your weary soul, some chicken soup was poured in.
In heaven it is just love as in heaven it is just God there. God is love. You just got a bit of heaven.
I believe Jesus is God.
“If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”
1 Corinthians 13:1-2, 13 ESV
N.B; old ladies please don’t put yourself at risk unnecessarily. I am sure you are good judges of character by now. Just as you do not laugh at a joke that is not funny, please do not force yourself to hug people. Let it occur naturally when the time is right.
Always love though.
This post we are on now is the water in this post:
A handbag weilded with years of ancient Chinese martial arts level precision is a force to be reckoned with. Heaven shakes…
Only messing 🙂
In the heavy metal music video One by Metallica it shows a man in war time strapped to a bed with a wire going through his head and a mask on his face so he cannot see or speak. He keeps saying “someone please help me” in his thoughts as he lays there. His torturers eat delicious food and party in a separate room.
This kind of stuff happens in war time and this video is old too.
Now this kind of stuff happens to anyone that is considered a problem to unethical Government, but in a new more sophisticated way e.g. someone with the necessary skills parks outside your house and just like the devil whispers horrific taunts in your mind, some people (e.g. Russians or people using witchcraft) will do this. Sounds dumb? Ok, you have seen what Derran Brown and Dynamo can do, surely they can send a whisper to your head. How about “you have been given an ADHD drug”. You then cannot sleep and lay awake for ages in your bed in thinking mode. Bet you had a night like that. Then you are given a well planned set of whispers which immobilizes you and then starts an exponential pain curve e.g. just like hell in your mind.
Proverbs 3:13 Blessed is the person who finds wisdom, the person who finds understanding.
When you know what I have stated in the two paragraphs above, you can easily defeat this type of evil i.e. get out of bed and have some water, go back to bed and never let the curve start (get out again if it does) and think in pictures or even better clear your head before you sleep.
Pictures do not react to a verbal whispers in your mind. If they are good they can use pictures (I had this with a witch before). Clear your mind for this.
Proverbs 27:12 A prudent person sees danger far off and hides, but the simple carry on and suffer for it.
Learn to meditate, clear your mind and think in pictures in anticipation of this.
Government’s are usually heavy handed and won’t let you explain yourself before it happens e.g. I was homeless and I went of grid, then got a house and did some half-marathons etc in the grid. I give to the poor and preach the good news of Christ crucified. All this but the Government harasses me.
My Lord Jesus gave me the balls to say this. This is the kind of stuff that spies learn and I had to learn it after giving tangerines to the poor. I got this wisdom from the Lord in Scotland when I was camping and on the run.
I hope this stops a lot of pain.
Bless you, in Jesus name.
Guys, witchcraft will rot your soul and take away all the richness from your life. The richness that you felt when you were in your childhood, the richness that smoking cigarettes takes away.
In the old testament it says the witchcraft is detestable to God. That is because He loves you and wants you to have a rich and happy life.
Guys it hurts kids, it hurts you and because of that it makes your loving heavenly Father sad.
Israel kept going into idolatry and following the Baals but God always took them back as He loves them and loves you.
The Bible expressly condemns all forms of witchcraft.
Question: “What does the Bible say about witchcraft / witches? Should a Christian fear witchcraft?”
Answer: The Bible has a lot to say about witchcraft. Witchcraft and its many cousins, such as fortune-telling and necromancy, are Satan’s counterfeits to holy spirituality. The Bible expressly condemns all forms of witchcraft.
Since early times, people have sought supernatural experiences God did not endorse. The nations that surrounded the Promised Land were saturated with such practices, and God had stern words for His people concerning any involvement with them. Deuteronomy 18:9–12 says, “When you enter the land the Lord your God is giving you, do not learn to imitate the detestable ways of the nations there. Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord.”
God takes witchcraft very seriously. The penalty for practicing witchcraft under the Mosaic Law was death (Exodus 22:18; Leviticus 20:27). First Chronicles 10:13 tells us that “Saul died because he was unfaithful to the LORD; he did not keep the word of the LORD and even consulted a medium for guidance.” In the New Testament, “sorcery” is translated from the Greek word pharmakeia, from which we get our word pharmacy (Galatians 5:20; Revelation 18:23). Witchcraft and spiritism often involve the ritualistic use of magic potions and mind-controlling drugs. Using illicit drugs can open ourselves up to the invasion of demonic spirits. Engaging in a practice or taking a substance to achieve an altered state of consciousness is a form of witchcraft.
There are only two sources of spiritual power: God and Satan. Satan has only the power that God allows him to have, but it is considerable (Job 1:12; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Revelation 20:2). To seek spirituality, knowledge, or power apart from God is idolatry, closely related to witchcraft. First Samuel 15:23 says, “For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.” Witchcraft is Satan’s realm, and he excels in counterfeiting what God does. When Moses performed miracles before Pharaoh, the magicians did the same things through demonic power (Exodus 8:7). At the heart of witchcraft is the desire to know the future and control events that are not ours to control. Those abilities belong only to the Lord. This desire has its roots in Satan’s first temptation to Eve: “You can be like God” (Genesis 3:5).
Since the Garden of Eden, Satan’s major focus has been to divert human hearts away from worship of the true God (Genesis 3:1). He entices humans with the suggestions of power, self-realization, and spiritual enlightenment apart from submission to the Lord God. Witchcraft is merely another branch of that enticement. To become involved in witchcraft in any way is to enter Satan’s realm. Seemingly “harmless” modern entanglements with witchcraft can include horoscopes, Ouija boards, Eastern meditation rituals, and some video and role-playing games. Any practice that dabbles in a power source other than the Lord Jesus Christ is witchcraft. Revelation 22:15 includes witches in a list of those who will not inherit eternal life: “Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.”
We don’t need to fear Satan’s power, but we should respect it and stay away from it. First John 4:4 says, “Greater is He who is in you, than he who is in the world.” Satan can create much havoc, harm, and destruction, even in the lives of believers (1 Thessalonians 2:18; Job 1:12–18; 1 Corinthians 5:5). However, if we belong to the Lord Jesus Christ, there is no power that can ultimately defeat us (Isaiah 54:17). We are overcomers (1 John 5:4) as we “put on the whole armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes” (Ephesians 6:11). When we give our lives to Christ, we must repent. This repentance should include renouncing any involvement with witchcraft, following the example of the early believers in Acts 19:19.
Isaiah 8:19 says, “When someone tells you to consult mediums and spiritists, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living?” When we follow those words to their logical conclusion, we could also ask, “Why seek any power apart from the source of all real power? Why seek spirits who are not the Holy Spirit?” Witchcraft and its many counterparts promise spirituality but lead only to emptiness and death (Micah 5:12; Galatians 5:19–21). Only Jesus has the words of life (John 6:68).
Pray to Jesus to help you repent. Don’t forget that He loves you massively and will forgive you and help you.
Bless you guys.
Its only 5 minutes roughly as I want to be gentle.
Any feedback or constructive criticism is welcome in the comments section so I can improve it.
Bless you 🙂💛
“Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you? Everyone who comes to me and hears my words and does them, I will show you what he is like: he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built. But the one who hears and does not do them is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. When the stream broke against it, immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house was great.” Luke 6:46-49 ESV
When storms come (e.g. a rotten Brexit), stand on the Word of God and be wise by doing what the Word says. Then you will thrive and not just survive.
That is what I did in my tribulation and He gave me 14 Big Lessons. Do the same and you will be fine.
NB. You need faith to receive wisdom so read your bible and even better praise Jesus to get the highest level of faith.
“For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding” Proverbs 2:6 ESV
You are being mental health raped or generaly psychologicaly persecuted by the Government because you are a Christian….
You have mental knots in your mind. Worries and questions unanswered all floating about in your noggin. This drains your energy and fills you with anxiety and fear that effects your faith negatively.
DUWD = Don’t Understand then Write it Down
I will tell you. Get an A4 bit of paper and write down at the top the question that has been plaguing your thoughts for days. Draw a line down the middle of the page with yes and no at the top on either side.
Write down the reasons for yes and no on each side and give each one a score from 1 to 10 on how valid it is.
Add up the score at the bottom and you have an answer.
If you did it well then you will see something obvious like 50:12 and have no more worries.
If it niggles you after that then put it in a stronghold buster. There is a post for that on this blog.
Thanks Theresa, waffle chops 💛🍫
So the UK has gone completely upside down after Brexit…
You run to the forest with your Brothers and Sisters for santuary.
Once a week you sneak into town to get your dried pasta, beetroot, coffee mate and other superfood rations.
You write down in a diary what you can have each day for the week so you do not run out…
Your depressed and crying, you want to escape your pain so you comfort eat…
You have used your rations and now you have to journey back into town again….
You are not prepared and you lose your nerve when minions harass you in a supermarket queue. They set you up and now your in a cell for no less than the maximum number of hours because you believe in Jesus.
I learnt this the hard way so you don’t have to. Ration and stick to it.
“From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has suffered violence, and the violent take it by force.” Matthew 11:12 ESV
My belief is that the heavenlies are the collective consciousness of mankind. Your mind is either sanctified by the Word of Christ or the Government (violent men) program you with material desires and what not through the BBC.
So the battle is in the mind…
No wonder this verse says that physical training is of some use, even after saying Godliness!
Why? If the battle is in the mind then physical exercise will keep your mind healthy.
“For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. This is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance.” 1 Timothy 4:8-9 NIV
Get a load of those endorphins after a good run. It feels super and you can think straight.
Running for earobic. Pilates for your core which is very strengthing. Either chin ups or press ups for upper body.
Proverbs 16:32 has probably been the most useful Proverb in my life.
Proverbs 16:32 ESV “Better a patient man than a warrior, one who holds his temper than one who takes a city”
Man means mankind and so this includes woman. Some translations say patient person.
“Better a patient man than a warrior”. It is true, the pen is greater than the sword e.g. do not kick your neighbours door down and swear at them as their music is too loud. Be patient and persevere with a complaint to the council. Then you will not be arrested and instead your neighbour will be arrested.
“One who holds his temper than one who takes a city”. Did you get that, a whole city. No wonder patience is considered a virtue.
Discipline yourself to be patient. Research it from a valid range of sources in order to get a reliable answer. Then practice it as it is a game changer in tribulation.
NB. Verses are like power pellets by the way. Learn some good verses that apply to your life. Think of the verse that applies in any situation and you will find that you do better as you have just swallowed a power pellet.
In the case of this post you can think of Proverbs 16:32 when you are in a super market queue.
PFPI – Pray For Pacing It. To remember Pray For PIe.
Yummy apple PIe! 🥧
Do not forget that Jesus is in complete control and that because of the cross, the enemy is on a leash. Trials and hard times make us stronger in our relationship with the Lord.
Church and me included. We have to examine our hearts i.e. young person at risk of HIV then aids for the rest of their life or lets watch Eastenders tonight. Psychology Brothers and Sisters, is a worldly discipline. Fine use it when you need it, but remember what it is.
EWF. Examine your Heart. Be Wise. Be Faithful.
Consider what actually motivates your actions e.g. giving the homeless food in order to look good or because you love them.
DONT pickup needles. Report it and be Wise.
Faithful. Read and learn your bible for faith and actually do what it says.
Government and minions harrasing me so if I am locked up soon you heard it here and know why. It is because they do not understand. I forgive them. This paragraph helps me. I am not Jesus but I experience to a much lesser degree some of the stuff that happened to him. All Christians do.
Security of this site targeted.
A Christian once said: “If we as Christians are not in some way given a hard time then what does this say about our spiritual condition?”
Check out the cover of this book:
Your heavenly Father God can be cuddly as it says in Romans 8, Abba Father (means Daddy God) with you on His lap.
There is also His tough love that teaches you to be strong so you can cope with life better. This kind of love is prudent e.g. when you put your hand too close to the fire place you get a smack on your wrist from Dad but you never burn your hand again for the rest of your life.
Hebrews 12:5-6 ESV “And have you forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons? “My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, nor be weary when reproved by him. For the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and chastises every son whom he receives.””
When things go wrong, ask yourself the question, is God disciplining me for something I have done wrong?
Maybe He has been trying to tell you for ages and you had been suffering lots but you did not change as you did not know.
If you start asking, finding out through prayer and then repenting of whatever it is, you will start to have a much more successful and joyful life. He is raising you as His child.
God is love and He will love you however He can in whatever situation or place you are in, in order to help you.
N.B; the book mentioned above is amazing. The Father figure is the most vital relationship you can have therefore this book will significantly strengthen your Christian walk i.e. people say “he knows the Father”.
The Father is greater than Jesus and He is the sovereign ruler of the whole universe.
A nice old hymn about your Father in heaven:
Father God I wonder how I managed to exist without the knowledge of your parenthood and your loving care.
But now I am your son, I am adopted in your family, I can never be alone as Father God your here beside me.
I will sing your praises.
I will sing your praises.
I will sing your praises for forever more.
You are His biological child and He can never let you go.
He is outside of time and knows the future perfectly thus He is perfectly powerful.
He is God thus He can pause time, rearrange things and then press play again e.g.
Selah. You are safe child 💛
