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)

Zidane the Pomeranian

Above is a cute Pomeranian, the same breed of dog that I own at home and affectionately known as Leia. Looks like Zidane is busy ‘reading’ a book entitled ‘Crush It’ by Gary the author. Zidane has its own Instagram as can be seen above. I just love the adorable pictures of Zidane posted by the owner who happens to sell Pomeranian-themed apparel. Poms have long thick fur which makes them look much bigger than they actually are. Also, you can find pictures of Leia in the earlier posts when she was a puppy, just 2 months old!

Yesterday was my birthday, and it was just a small family affair with a treat at a popular Chinese restaurant. Dad is now in a nursing home and craves to go home. But I guess after discussing with my sisters, it is best he stays there for the moment until he can become independent again, just like before his fall at home in the toilet. Now he is waiting for a heart bypass in September at a hospital in KL. Dad is an octogenarian already having lived up to a ripe age of 81 during his golden years and still counting. We pray for his longevity and that he will be happy and be at peace with himself.

Afterall, granny was in a home for 25 years or so and also craved to come back, but could not due to family issues at home. And dad visited her monthly and brought her out. Whereas, in dad’s case, he goes to church weekly as driven by the youngest sister where they both attend a Catholic church, mingle with friends and then dinner together.

Review on https://www.beaconcom.sg/

I was surfing the website for some work when I came across https://www.beaconcom.sg/ which is a Singapore website that does inbound sales, lead nurturing, lead generation and lead conversion. According to its website, inbound sales are as the following:

The ABCs Of Inbound Sales

How exactly does “Inbound Sales” work? Let’s start with the ABCs – Attract, Build and Close.

Attract Visitors – Learn Lead Generation
This step is all about getting visitors to your site. Adding new leads to your sales funnel.

Build Leads – Learn Lead Conversion
Now that you have quality traffic, you need to manage them properly. Converting visitors into customers. and more.

Close Sales – Learn Lead Nurturing
Not every lead immediately turns to a sale. For this, an effective lead nurturing plan is crucial. It’s about building relationship.

With so many e-commerce sites using WooCommerce, Shopify, Easystore by Exabytes which is much cheaper, free platforms like Open Cart, etc, many would-be entrepreneurs jump onto the bandwagon without knowing what is in store for them and the huge amount of time and sacrifice it takes to build a store slowly and gradually like blogging about it, Facebook marketing which is now double its price, etc.

But with https://www.beaconcom.sg/, where you can click on the link above or copy and paste the URL into your browser, you will find that marketing and advertisement are already done for you, leaving you with more time to do the important things in your life. Hence, you cannot discount the factors of ABC of Inbound Sales and Marketing. The SEO or Search Engine Optimisation is already prepared by the professionals and all you have to do is to give this site a visit and perhaps try out their services as promised. Just my 2 cents.

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.
