The Joy of confession 2

Sinner: Good Sir, it seems that my heart is in a sorrow state, a most miserable creature I have become because of unrequited love.


Good Sir: Speak my Son, such as befall many young men as you. Let me your story and thereafter I shall direct your heart to the one whose love never fails.


Sinner: It seems Sir, that one of the dissapointments of live is the pain of unrequited love- of imposible love, of dying love; it is best to be put away, to quecnh immediately for it only makes the wounds of love more painful and such is my case. I had felt an affination towards her but the dregs of jealousy flowed unwarranted through me as I saw her behold him. It became clear to me that now there was nothing between us than mere friendship. What i my to do now - my sorrow will bear me no comfort, I cannot despise her so I plea to time to heal away my aches. I can but do one thing, to accept her happiness and rejoice in it although i wished that her happiness had been found in me.


Good Sir: Many boys have walked your shoes therefore feel not abandoned by the misery of your soul. Indeed unrequited love is best to be put away and one ought not to neglect it in a dark corner but it is best dealt with by loving another person whose Love one is sure will be reciprocal. There is a person as such that all who have ever loved him, He has loved them a hundred fold more. Where many flooded to Him with the rags of their love, he flooded them with silk and fine linen. Such was his love for them that to all who have loved him, he has loved them all back showering them with kisses of delight and given to each the best gift a God could offer. Such was His love towards his lovers that all of them merrily declared His name even at their own peril. His lovers have suffered under the worst of hell and yet there eyes are still fixated on the first kiss He showered on them. It was strangely warm and all who have felt such a kiss tell the story with passion and inexpressible Joy. 


You must be wandering who is this Lover and how can I behold him and He is a man and surely the women are the winners. But I am a man and I must find a lady as such. Do not be hasty young fellow, for the Person I speak to you of is the man Christ Jesus. The second person of the blessed trinity who has died for your sins if you will believe today. He has gone into His Father's palace to prepare a place, yea. a beautiful place for you if only today you would become one of His lovers. His heart cries for you and if you would this day accept Him as your Lord and Saviour, He will be forever thy comfort and your eternal lover. And also, He has prepared a feast for his lovers, a wedding feast and you are invited, will you join Him today and feel the warmth of his breath upon your soul. His Love never fail and this sorrow you feel now will be shadowed by the loveliness of His sweetness. Oh I could roll my tongues for days and not fail to speak of Him for I too have been kissed by Him. I have felt the kiss of a woman but it compares not to the delicacy of His affections and behold how now I am free and not burdened by so much a matter as unrequited Love for His love for me will never be extinguished.


I bid you, my fellow creature, enter into his love!


Sinner: Oh it is to my joy that such a Man lives and I tarry not, as you spoke, my heart felt strangely warm and my spirit earnestly desired this heavenly man. I am ready dear Sir, must I take of the blessed sacrament to be ushered into His Love, or must I sell all that I have, or must I be a monk or a priest, must I go there or here.


Good Sir: He will reveal your mission to you soon enough but none of those things are necessary. He only ask of you to Love Him, to believe in your heart with the certainty of faith that He Loves you, that He died for you and rose again. Believe in His name and you shall be His.


Sinner: I believe Sir, I believe

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…
