Set your Love upon Jesus

Set your love upon Jesus

“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
Psalm 91:14

SET YOUR LOVE UPON JESUS

Jesus was in a house in Bethany when a woman came to Him with an alabaster flask containing very costly fragrant oil. She poured the oil on His head. (Matthew 26:6–7) This woman loved the Lord. She had set her love upon Him.

But those who were present considered what she did a great waste because the oil could have been sold for an amount equal to one year’s wages, and the money given to the poor instead. Even Jesus’ disciples were indignant and asked her, “Why this waste?” (Matthew 26:8)

But Jesus defended her, saying, “Why do you trouble the woman? For she has done a good work for Me.” (Matthew 26:10) Not only that, He accorded her the highest honor when He added, “Assuredly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be told as a memorial to her.” (Matthew 26:13)

Two thousand years have passed since this woman anointed Jesus with the expensive oil. She never expected in her wildest dreams that her act of love would be told down through the ages. Many kings and rulers have come and gone. Their great acts have faded from the memories of men. But what this woman did for Jesus is still told today around the world as a memorial to her!

When you get a revelation of how much Jesus loves you, you will set your love upon Him. And when you act out of love for Him, though others may see it as a waste of time, energy or money, He will defend you and deliver you from your critics. He will also set you on high. Your ministry will become powerful and life-changing. Your work will be highly esteemed among your peers. Your company will be prominent and highly successful. And it will not just be a job that you have, but a position of influence to impact many lives.

So set your love upon Jesus. Make Him the love of your life today, and He will defend, deliver and set you on high!

Thanking God at All Times

Thanking God at all times

Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.
Hebrews 13:15

THANKING GOD AT ALL TIMES

Lifting up your hands and thanking God is spontaneous and easy when you have just received a wonderful blessing: “God, I can’t thank You enough for this miracle!”

“Thank You Father, for answering my prayer!”

“Father, thank You for the windfall!”

Perhaps you came close to being in a fatal accident, but God plucked you out of danger just in time. Or your grandmother, an unbeliever for many years, finally received Jesus as her Savior and got healed of a long-term disease.

But there are times when you don’t feel like lifting up your hands to thank and praise God, yet you do it. Perhaps you feel very discouraged lately. Perhaps everything is going wrong for you and you feel like your life is in a mess. You can’t hold back the tears. Yet, you make a conscious decision to lift your hands and thank God for being in the situation with you. You open your mouth and begin to praise Him even though you really don’t feel like doing it.

In the midst of the trial that you are going through, you praise Him that He is your righteousness in spite of all the mistakes you have made. You thank Him that He is your Prince of Peace and that His peace will arise in you and still the storms in your life.

My friend, God sees and appreciates such times when, despite feeling so discouraged, you offer a freewill thanksgiving offering to Him. In fact, your thanksgiving during such times is more highly prized by Him than your thanksgiving during those times when you are feeling joyful because you have just been blessed.

And when you choose to thank Him for His unfailing love, and His faithfulness to deliver, protect and provide for you even when you don’t see the blessings yet, before long, you will find yourself experiencing and enjoying the blessings! So lift your hands and praise the Lord, for He is good, and His mercy endures forever! (Psalm 106:1)

Be Mindful of Christ Obedience at the Cross

Christ obedience at the cross

casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,
2 Corinthians 10:5

BE MINDFUL OF CHRIST’S OBEDIENCE AT THE CROSS

Have you ever felt condemned because of the bad thoughts you have had? You could be in the middle of a prayer meeting when suddenly a dirty thought enters your mind. Actually, it is the devil who puts such thoughts in your mind. Then, he steps back, looks at you and knocks you on your head, saying, “How can you call yourself a Christian and still think such thoughts?”

I used to be in bondage over the bad thoughts I had because I felt that I had to confess every one of them and seek God’s forgiveness. But that is not what God’s Word exhorts us to do. You see, God wants us to bring “every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ”. Now, whose obedience are we to focus on? Christ’s obedience and not our own obedience!

But what is “the obedience of Christ”? It is His obedience at the cross, where “by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous”. (Romans 5:19) Jesus shed His blood for us at the cross. This means that when our thoughts condemn us, we are to focus our thoughts on Jesus’ obedience at the cross.

My friend, the devil can only make inroads into our minds when he gets us to focus on our obedience instead of Christ’s obedience. His strategy is to point us to our obedience or the lack of it to determine our standing before God. But just as our position as sinners is not based on what we do, but what the first Adam did, in the same way, we are forever righteous today not because of what we do, but because of what Christ, the last Adam, did on the cross.

So the next time your thoughts seem to condemn you, say, “I am righteous whether I have good or bad thoughts. My righteousness has nothing to do with my obedience. Jesus’ obedience at the cross made me righteous.” Then, go ahead and pray, knowing that you have access to God and His favor and that He hears the prayer of the righteous. (Proverbs 15:29)

Excerpt from The Fashion Intruder Book

The Fashion Instruder Book

This story is partially based on real events for which the fashion world is only a background and in this aspect it can be compared to The Devil Wears Prada. Both Roma and Lauren Weisberger were inspired by events from their own lives, reshaping them by their imagination.

The Fashion Intruder will take you to the world of fashion and ballet dancers from La Scala, at the same time giving you an insight into the real world of a large legal corporation. Italian art, French chic, English football and a Russian approach to business will quickly lead you through Intruder’s pages. But the book gives you more, it shows that we are imprisoned only by fear created in our minds, which stops us from realizing our dreams. The main character, Sofia Ricci shows us how to break out of corporate bonds and fiercely fight for your choices, even if everything around you is falling apart…

Some people say that this is a story about creating a business, other voices express a view that The Fashion Intruder is about believing that it is never too late to do what you truly love. This is a book of new beginnings, not only for Sofia, but also for the book’s other characters.

The blurb: That’s it!!! Will you finally give yourself the second chance? Dare to escape the perfectly organised legal world and the bed of a whimsical lover, the La Scala’s leading male dancer? Be brave enough to enter the crazy world of luxurious fashion and transfer every famous fashion street, boutique by boutique to a virtual world? Are you keen to face moody stylists, bloggers and designers? Can you escape the anger of a Victoria’s Secret Angel? Or will it not be enough once you’ve looked into the piercing blue eyes of a Manchester United forward? Rome, Paris, Milan, London, Moscow, New York all will reveal their true colours; the leading fashion cities so powerfully controlled by fashion elites. You, in turn, aware of the fashion war between Coco Chanel and Elsa Schiaparelli, are determined to become their worthy opponent. Are you ready? The fight for your dreams starts now!

Parenting – The Hardest 24-7 Job

Parenting - the hardest round the clock job

Parenting could well be the hardest job, compared to any others. But in this case, you call the shots, instead of your boss. You are now mom to your tiny bundle of joy all round the clock or 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is a never-ending process and even if your bundle of joy grows up to become an adult, you are still needed in certain ways for advise, companionship and sometimes financial help should he or she be jobless. But parenting is still worth it and it is God’s blessings to give your children and train them in the way they should go, the biblical way. So that the baby who is not an adult will not stray from the right path of living and become gainfully employed, able to socialize and merge with society at large.

Hence, it is the mother’s job to train up the child or toddler or infant to love reading and not waste time by gambling or watching pornography in their teenage years. All parents hope that they can train their child to become successful later on and become proud parents. As a ‘mom’ to a year old plus Pomeranian, it is not easy bringing her up, cleaning up the litter and feeding her. But Leia gives me lots of affection and joy seeing her grow from a puny puppy with very little fur to an almost full grown dog with long thick fur that is so tempting to stroke. When she poos outside her litter box, she gets disciplined. Sometimes she craves for attention by making puppy sounds to alert the owner. My spouse always says grace for little Leia before she eats her food of dog kibbles, mixed with lamb or beef. By the way, she’s allergic to chicken.

The Greatest Speech Ever by Oprah Winfrey

Just watch this YouTube video by the first black self-made woman billionaire, Oprah Winfrey. It is rather lengthy, but worth the nuggets of wisdom imparted. Most of us feel demoralized by the daily grind of chores of family life and also career-wise. Sometimes we are so bogged down by toxic people that we should avoid at all costs. They could be in our circle of friends, relative and family. They don’t want to see us succeed and say or do things that hurt us to boost up their inflated egos.

That is probably why the famous food critic, Anthony Bourdain and well-known designer, Kate Spade, committed suicide within 3 days apart. These two people are successful, established household names, yet they took their own lives. The Bible states that “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.” – Luke 4:4. Luke was a doctor or only physician mentioned in the scripture. You can just Google this up for the various versions on different bibles.

Anyway, I am a little busy with work and some issues cropped for the company. So, I have to do my part and contribute in whatever way I can. A little about Oprah from Wiki here:

Oprah Winfrey (born Orpah Gail Winfrey; January 29, 1954) is an American media proprietor, talk show host, actress, producer, and philanthropist. She is best known for her talk show The Oprah Winfrey Show, which was the highest-rated television program of its kind in history and was nationally syndicated from 1986 to 2011 in Chicago, Illinois. Dubbed the “Queen of All Media”, she was the richest African American of the 20th century and North America’s first multi-billionaire black person, and has been ranked the greatest black philanthropist in American history. Several assessments rank her as the most influential woman in the world.
