Good to be back

Its been almost three months since I came back home and what a joy it is to be back. I ponder to myself that, why don’t I make coming back home a regular occurrence since I enjoy the company of my dear family very much. The only answer I could think of was of my busyness and expenses. Nevertheless coming back home on Saturday allowed me to see my cousins that I hadn’t seen in years and it was a joyous occasion as one of my cousins turned one.

On Sunday after church we went out for a family meal and the food was delicious. Table talk was good and I took the opportunity to ask my cousin to take some pictures. Though the bill was rather expensive and the drinks ridiculously overcharged, yet the restaurant was nicely decorated and the chairs comfortable. Later that evening, I was taking to watch the Inception and we thought that on a Sunday night the cinema would be almost barren but to our surprise it overflowed with dating teens and packs of cheerful families coming to watch the same film we wanted to eagerly watch. Well I wasn’t so eager but curious. Many had raised a high alarm for the awesomeness and complexity of the film that I thought it beneficial to also see what all the commotion was all about. Inception was rather good and the story line was excellent. Though it is highly unrealistic yet some parts are realistic and indeed many are living in a dream world and shut themselves out of the pr sent reality in order to numb guilt or to get away from the sheer despair of human existence without God.

Then was finally home and discussed the film a while and read a bit of the book I am currently reading and then decided that it was time for an early night.

Throughout all these events, my soul feels not the peace and comfort that I am so accustomed too and I know why. Torn by things which I ought not to be but I know that it is of the devil to attack me and I am not unaware of his devices. I grow saddened by the uncaring nature of many and the evilness that prevails our fallen world. I see the love for the world but not a love for Christ and I notice the hypocriticy of the soul and that within my own too.

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…
