I overflow with praise when I come before you, for the anointing of your presence satisfies me like nothing else.
You are such a rich banquet of pleasure to my soul.
I’m thankful for being able to move and work out.
I thought of this when I was grumbling through my workout today.
Part of my daily ‘3 things to be thankful for’ note.
I love WordPress and all its complicatedness. Found out that there is no community feature (like, follow other awesome blogs) on WordPress.org. That is one thing I appreciate when I was on WordPress.com.
Anyways. So, I’m using Bloglovin now to hopefully do likewise.
To do that, I have to first claim my blog on Bloglovin, and I have to paste this:
Follow my blog with Bloglovin
So, let’s see how it goes.
Hmm…perhaps I should blog about my experience of putting my blog on Bloglovin.
I discovered that what I regularly wanna do are the same, no matter where I am.
Spend time with God
Spend time with hubs
Watch Frasier or do other unproductive leisure stuff
Can’t do it all
The twist when in Phuket with gorgeous private beach:
All of the above plus don’t wanna waste the chance to lounge on the beach.
I’m a sad freak, that I am. :/
I find myself not ready to face the world, yet constantly being pushed out, head high and go go go.
When I quiet down, everything comes back to hit me.
Sermon message from Sidney Mohede:
We are a very comfortable generation. We are a generation who thinks we are entitled to things. We feel that we have the right to get what we want. People feel that they are entitled because of their power and position, and the higher the power and position, the more entitled they think they deserve. It is all about ‘Me, me, me!’
The question is not about what I can get. Jesus wants us to have power and authority.
The real question is, “What are you going to do with what you already got? What are you going to do with the influence, the fame, the authority and the wealth that you have? How are you going to leverage your power and position for the world?”
Strength is for service, not for status.
Jesus knew He had all the power in the world. Even though He knew He could save himself from getting tortured and killed, He turned himself into the lowliest of the servants to wash the dirt and filth of the disciples’ feet. This is a powerful revelation that changed Sidney Mohede’s life. He realised that God wanted him to be influential for a purpose. It is okay to be great. God wants you to be successful and prosperous. However, God wants you to leverage that power and influence for something greater than yourself. God wants you to use that power to serve others.
Right place, right time… Weak moment. And you are the featured star of your own horror movie.
Heard this from Chip Ingram’s sermon on Living On The Edge.
Nobody wakes up thinking that they are going to have an affair, cheat, lie, etc. It formed little by little and sneaked up on you before you realised it.
Be on guard. Guard your marriage, guard your integrity.
Always will remember this advice.
‘All man will die. But to die strong, one has to live and stand strong. The journey of life shapes the man for the end.’ This weekend’s sermon message.
