Watch out for Negative Thoughts : An incident which occurred a while ago has left me on a sad note. It has been many weeks since the incident but those negative thoughts haven’t left my mind. I wish I could turn back on time, and plan that day differently. I wonder if I should have restrained my thoughts? Should I have not stood up for my loved one? Should I still be feeling so low? Maybe now everyone dislikes me and is gossiping behind my back. Then, this morning those negative thoughts flooded back again. I grabbed the Word of God
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.

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 .
Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. Songs of Songs 8:6
‘Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’ Isaiah 41:10 (NASB) Have you experienced a life changing event that rocked your world upside down?
A deep longing to see my folks fills my heart today. It has been five years since I got to sit and joke around with my sisters, hold my precious new niece, or spend time with my parents and grandparents. The distance of 7,723 miles has made it difficult for me to visit them all when my heart longs for my family. We love to be surrounded by close friends and family even though we seldom appreciate their constant presence in our lives, and long for their support when we get weary or alone.
