What happens when not vigilant : Recently, I watched a documentary on a leopard and the hunting tactics it used against a family of baboons. The leopard is known to be the fastest animal, nocturnal, and hunts solitary in the night. The baboons are always together in a group with their young ones, have poor eyesight in the dark and prefer to rest on top of the tree. Whenever the leopard tried to come near the baboons during the daytime, the latter would chase after the leopard together. So, after the baboons retired for the night on top of the tree
And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: (Colossians 2:10,KJV) The ambitious standards and checklists put forth by man can often turn out to be very depressing when one fails to meet them. We end up feeling incomplete and forget our real identity in Christ. Complete through the union in Christ Every man is born in sin, and is depraved of any goodness in him until he seeks and secures his salvation through Christ. This union with Christ is what makes each of us complete IN HIM. Today, we are filled, complete,
God has remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations. (Psalm 105:8,KJV)
Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and light unto my path. Psalm 119:105(KJV) One of the first verses I rote memorized as a little child was Psalm 119:105. I had no idea what it meant at that time but till today I can say this verse with my eyes closed.
3 John 1:4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth. I have loved being around children all my life, and I didn’t wait to be a biological mama to show my love. It started off by helping young moms with their little ones during church gatherings or home visits as a ten-year-old, to teaching Sunday School, co-helping at VBS, and being an AWANA leader as an adult for over a decade. One doesn’t have to be a biological MOM to be called a MAMA if our mothering involves lots of prayers, encouragements, discipleship,
Psalm 147:3 – He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds (KJV) When I tried to carry all my bags on my lap: I loved travelling by trains growing up in India, especially the two – day train trips my family did during our summer holidays . There were no rules on how many baggage we could carry with us. I remember packing my little bag and stuffing it with my clothes, books, toys, and snacks. As I hopped onto the train, I decided to hold onto my heavy bag despite my parents asking me to put
Memory of scars: Ever had to deal with scars that reminded you of sad times? I have two big scars on my face, and couple on my body from my childhood. The one on my forehead is from the Chicken pox I got on my 4th birthday and had to be in a room away from everyone to prevent spreading it to others. The other scar is on the palm of my right hand when I tripped and fell onto a sharp rock during a vacation. I bled a lot and needed several stitches. Our scars they come in all sizes and shapes

Ever had an exhaustive, overburnt week where work load never seemed to have an end, or deteriorating health get in the way of your daily activities? Do these exhaustion prevent you from soaring high , and bring you down ?
contentment: Jesus said, “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?” (Matthew 6:25). Food makes me very happy especially if it is burgers, Paella ,Indian food, chili cheese fries, or tacos. I dream of having these food items served to me daily ,but suppose I had to eat burgers all week long there is a possibility that I may begin to dislike it after a while .
