Revelation 1

7 Look, he is coming on the clouds! Everyone will see him, including those who pierced him. All peoples on earth will mourn over him. So shall it be!
8 “I am the first and the last,” says the Lord God Almighty, who is, who was, and who is to come.

I’ve been drawn to this book, but have been avoiding it as I so often don’t understand what God is trying to tell us. Ever since my first hand experience recently of God’s power, I’ve come to realize that the time seems right to attempt a re-reading of Revelations. So many things have changed for me in the past weeks and I now know God will reveal Himself to me.
My faith has been renewed, not only in my daily life, but in my relationship with God too. I now know that it is easy, one should leave your troubles at God’s feet, He WILL attend to it.
Having read Revelations before, I understand that I’ve never really trusted God to show me the meaning behind all the symbolism. I should and I actually did, so I’m confident that I’ll see this book with a brand new perception.
God bless us all and show us the way……

Psalm 68:19

19 Praise the Lord,
who carries our burdens day after day;
he is the God who saves us.

These are words I need today. In my previous post I’m sure you found a slight hint of desperation. In Psalm 68 God re-establishes my faith. He WILL be there ALWAYS and He will save us. Thanks be to God, because I believe his power is so much more then what we think. Miracles still happen today and, I, a lowly servant begged for His help – I do believe that He heard my plea and I’ll se astounding results with my little boy. Thank you God, for finally giving me peace.

Surviving the week….

Oh man……just one tiny question….how on earth am I going to survive this week? I know its a stupid question….obviously in the same way I survive them all. Gritting my teeth and just….well, just keep swimming!
Exams are in full swing and my nerves are a-buzzing…..this morning I totally cracked up…..I actually started to cry. I’m just tired and fed-up with the damn school that (trumpets please) still gives homework, despite the fact that the kids are writing exams. The subject-matter is HUGE….lots of work, and yet, the teachers are apparently adamant to prove their worth. I wish I can smack some of them…..oooefff, I’m mad!!!!
Its just that, sometimes, things get even too much for a rock like me…..sometimes I really need a helping hand. I’ve prayed constantly for my kids since forever and hopefully God’s ‘all in good time’-time will come to our doorstep soon (like YESTERDAY perhaps!).
So it was Science today….tomorrow its Maths and for extra fun, my boy has the flu too. So you can understand that I’m totally wrecked! I think, instead of a helping hand, I could use some heavy drugs…..just to take my mind off things for a while!

It has begun….

Yep, the first subject is being written now (check out the tenses in the sentence, people….somebody’e been studying English Grammar!) My nerves are shot, but, you know what, I BELIEVE Tristan will do well. He worked very hard these past 2 days. I pray constantly and KNOW that God has heard….I have a peace in me about this exam. Its been so long (try never) that my son has been successful in school and I just feel that his turn has finally come to do well in his subjects. I thank God for granting me this deep feeling of reassurance and calm……its going to be fine. We serve such a wonderful, giving, kind God.

Galatians 1

10 Does this sound as if I am trying to win human approval? No indeed! What I want is God’s approval! Am I trying to be popular with people? If I were still trying to do so, I would not be a servant of Christ.

And here I am, going on about this exact same thing and Paul has been onto us to change for ages.
Stop pleasing people…life is NOT about that. We are totally missing the point of creation. We were made to give praise, honour and glory to God, not to other PEOPLE or our own greedy self. Think for a moment…..why do you live the way you do or say the words you like to speak….is it to bring glory to yourself, to make yourself great among men, or do you do it so that your greatness can bring honour to God?

Psalm 66:1-7

A Song of Praise and Thanksgiving

1 Praise God with shouts of joy, all people!
2 Sing to the glory of his name;
offer him glorious praise!
3 Say to God, “How wonderful are the things you do!
Your power is so great
that your enemies bow down in fear before you.
4 Everyone on earth worships you;
they sing praises to you,
they sing praises to your name.”
5 Come and see what God has done, his wonderful acts for mankind.
6 He changed the sea into dry land;
our ancestors crossed the river on foot. There we rejoiced because of what he did.
7 He rules for ever by his might
and keeps his eyes on the nations.
Let no rebels rise against him.

I think these words sum up how I really feel towards God at this moment…..all I feel like doing is shouting to the heavens as that old hymn says: ‘With my hands lifted up, and my mouth filled with praise, with a heart of thanksgiving, I will bless Thee o Lord’
