Herumindset.com Hypnotherapy

For the uninitiated, Google defines Hypnotherapy as the use of hypnosis as a therapeutic technique. From Wikipedia, Hypnotherapy is an alternative treatment in which the mind is used to help with a variety of problems, such as coping with stress or breaking bad habits. For more information, check out Hypnotherapy where you can click on the link to find out more information. Life is full of stress, pressures to excel and perform; whether you are a student or a working professional. Everyone faces stress either at home or in the workplace.

Therefore you need to learn how to de-stress and relax using various treatments like the above-mentioned or go for a walk and exercise to release the feel-good hormones, endorphins. As for me, I will pray to my God to de-stress. There are different ‘strokes’ for different folks.

Leia in all her former glory days

The above pictures and video are taken by me of my pet Pomeranian, Leia, with my spouse as her master now. She’s so cute and in her former glory days of long fur pelt with puppy boots. I feel a little sad now that her long fur was cut short by her ‘master’ since she dropped balls of fur near her playpen and it is a daily task to pick up the balls of fur. But due to certain circumstances, he sent her for a new overhaul in look and she now resembles a mongrel in the streets; except for her long fur on her tail that was not cut! Thank goodness, people still know she’s a Pom!

It is easier to maintain her now, but I still sense that Leia felt something was not usual having her long fur in her glory old days shaved off like a mongrel. Anyway, she will still remain my beloved little Pom! Since my spouse does most of the feeding and cleaning of poo, and fill up her water bottle, hence, he’s the master.

Call it the way God calls it

Call it the way God calls it

…God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did;
Romans 4:17

CALL IT THE WAY GOD CALLS IT!

Many a time, when we look at ourselves, we don’t see what we can become. But when God looks at us, He sees what we can become by His grace.

When Jesus first saw Simon, whose name in Greek means “reed,” He changed his name to “Peter,” which means “rock.” But did Peter instantly become someone with the characteristics of a rock—solid, stable and unshakable? No, for a long time, he continued to act like a reed that bends every which way the wind blows.

Once, when Peter saw Jesus walking on water, he took a bold step of faith and said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.” Then, as he was walking on the water, he saw the boisterous wind, got scared and when he began to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” (Matthew 14:28–30). Another time, he said, “Lord, I am ready to go with You, both to prison and to death” (Luke 22:33). Then, a few hours later, he denied knowing Jesus not once, but three times (see Luke 22:54–62).

Yet, throughout his reed-like behavior, Jesus kept calling him “rock” until one day, how Jesus saw him began to take root in him. That day, on the Day of Pentecost, Peter stood up to preach and 3,000 people were saved (see Acts 2:41)! Peter had indeed become a rock, a pillar in the early church.

That was how Jesus transformed Peter. And that is how God wants us to change the people and situations in our lives.

“Pastor Prince, are you telling me to call my wife ‘a fruitful vine’ as in Psalm 128:3? You should see my wife. She looks more like a dried-up sour prune!”

My friend, God did not tell us to call those things which exist as they exist. What is the point of stating the obvious? It is not going to change anything. No, God tells us to call those things which do not exist as though they did, and they will!

A Way of Escape

A way of Escape

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over.
Psalm 23:5

A WAY OF ESCAPE

The table is set. The bread and wine are there, and Jesus says to you, “Come, My child, partake.” But you tell Him, “Lord, I am unworthy!” You are afraid to come to the Lord’s table perhaps because you have been taught that if you partake in your “unworthy” state, you will come under God’s fiery judgment.

My friend, Jesus has washed you whiter than snow and qualified you with His own blood, so you are as worthy as worthy can be! The most humble thing you can do now is to acknowledge His perfect sacrifice and accept His invitation with gladness.

In 1 Corinthians 11, Paul tells the church how to partake of the Lord’s Supper so that they will not drink judgment to themselves. The word “judgment” in verses 29 and 34 is krima in the original Greek text. It refers to a divine sentence. And in the context of this passage, the divine sentence refers to sickness.

But when was this divine sentence of sickness passed? It was passed when Adam sinned (see Genesis 3:19). When he sinned, death entered the world (see Genesis 2:17), and man would grow old and weak, fall sick and die.

So it is not that God is passing sentences of sickness on people today. How can that be when Jesus said, “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved” (John 3:17). God is not in the business of condemning but saving. And the Greek word for “saved,” sozo, also means to preserve, heal and make whole.

God does not want you to suffer the divine sentence of sickness that is already in the world, so He has given you a way of escape, paid for by the blood of His Son. He wants you to be healthy and whole, without the diseases of the world, and He has made this possible for you through the Holy Communion.

So don’t be robbed of this tremendous blessing any longer because of erroneous teachings that have put fear in your heart. Come boldly to the Lord’s table today and receive afresh His health, strength, wholeness and life!
