run with joy

To tell you the truth, I'm not a big fan of running, infact id rather avoid it. I would rather walk to my destination which would take me an hour in total to get there rather than trouble my feet. My default mentality when it comes to running is that it is troublesome and should only be done when it is necessary. Today wasn't one of those days and to my surprise I ran to uni. the motivation behind it also was unusual because there was no reason for me to arrive at uni at a certain time but rather I thought it good that it would be excellent of me to build up my fitness for football. I've been injured since before Christmas and today was my first day back. I was excited but also feared that i would drop due to my lack of fitness but amazingly we did hardly any running but played short games which was fun and managed to score a cheeky last goal. I did my usual celebration, the same as Drogba.

It was good to see the guys again and to my joy there were some amazing players. I can't wait to get back to full fitness and really give it my all. any ways, running to uni was pretty fun, again this is also unusual, but to make it exciting, I imagined that Christ was jogging with me and that He was spearing me on. the running was light, indeed I went at a very slow speed but I was glad I did it because it made training all the more easier. Indeed one can run to the glory of God and enjoy it with great delight. I pray that I may set my eyes on Jesus, the messiah and keep on running for him, not running aimlessly but as one running for a prize.

When God turns a deaf ear on prayers

Does God always hear people’s prayers, or do some pray in vain thinking that God hears them, when in reality He chooses to turn a deaf hear to their cries? Some may perhaps have a notion that all prayers are worthy, and God being who He is is by nature willing to listen and hear their prayers delightfully. They entertain the notion that it is their birth right for God to listen to their prayers and answer them accordingly. Also, there are some who come before the presence of the Lord with severe doubts, defeated by the devils whisper that they are such an unworthy soul that for them to lift up their cries to the Lord is an abomination. They are mute by their own wickedness, depressed and thus fail to pray.

What does the scripture say about God turning a deaf hear to prayers? It is to be said that God is sovereign and can choose to answer any prayer as He sees fit. He is altogether happy and never backed into a corner, God always does whatever He pleases for He is free to do as He wills…

What does it mean to live a godly life?

If you ever asked yourself the question, what does it mean to live a godly life? and if your not exactly sure what living a godly life involves, this extract taking from Charles Seet book 'A Christian in a non-Christian world' provides ample guidance on just what to do.

Now it is worth asking the question then, 'What does it mean to live godly?' It does not mean that we are just to confine ourselves within a set of rules and regulations. Some people reduce godly living to a list of 'do’s and don'ts.' But the meaning of godly living goes far deeper than that.

Godly living means living in the manner that God wants us to live. It means having the same feelings, attitudes and heart's desires that God has. It means that we love the things that God loves, care for the things that God cares for, and dislike those things which He dislikes. And since God loves righteousness, a godly person also loves righteousness. Since God hates sin, a godly person also hates …

Women of the Bible: Adah and Zillah

The Sin of Adam and Eve resulted in the fall of humanity. Every generation after them became wicked and that is why scripture affirms, ‘that there is no one righteous, no, not even one.’ Mankind became enslave to the passions of its flesh, its desires became its ruler and men followed the natural dictates of their hearts; and were it not for Sovereign grace, the race of men would now only be read of by angels in the library of extinct creatures. Adam and Eve witnessed the consequences of their sin in the death of their beloved son, Abel, by the hands of Cain who murdered his brother in anger and was thus sent away from the presence of God. My dear sisters, sin is not only sin when it is found in its extremes, sin is also sin in its subtlety and vanity. Sin is sin when one's affection is set on another and not on God, when one lives to please a thing or a being which is not God; this is also sin.
This becomes especially evident in the lives of Adah and Zillah the wives of Lamech. Th…
