Spirit Care circles around establishing a relationship between God and man.
“Today, I can confidently say that I am exactly where I need to be – at the heart of knowing my God who is unwavering and unchanging; a faithful, promise-keeping God. I am ready to journey again with Him, and no matter what circumstance I may face, I say this with holy fear that, I know He knows about it and He is in control…
I was crying alone in the room, wallowing in tears, gasping for air, trying to let out a sound but only groans were heard coming out from sobs of desperation – desperation for God, desperation for Jesus.
The last two weeks had been a very challenging time for me and my family. I was discharged from the hospital last Sunday, March 1 due to dengue and enteric fever. Who would have thought I would have 2 diseases at the same time?
I thought that if I loved truly, it would be given in return. That if I become loyal and generous in love, my partner would reciprocate and do the same. I was wrong and not only in few occasions. In fact, I learned that if you give too much, men tend to abuse it and ask for more. As a result, I ended up broken, devastated and low self esteemed. I thought, I would never find someone who would truly love me unconditionally.
What do I do now? My mind and body tell me I should start a consistent healthier lifestyle this year, keep my weight on check and enjoy everything that is required to achieve them. This thought dawned on me after my last visit to my ophthalmologist who told me that I should start taking care of myself, because he saw some beginning changes around my eyes that he had not seen before. I have to mention also that I had episodes of chest heaviness and shortness of breath on 3 different occasions last year.
As 2015 begins, have you seriously considered what your past year had been like? I am sure it was not all roses. Have you also wondered and asked this question to yourself? “Why do I do what I do?” Most people would answer, “I just want to” or “somebody made me do it” Did you know that the answer you give to this question tells a lot about who you really are?
This “person” referred to here is someone who you can turn to, count on and lean on when the going gets tough. In my case, I have many “persons” in life and I am so blessed to have them all!
“Adam I is built by building on your strengths. Adam II is built by fighting your weaknesses.” – David Brooks
A life verse for me is a passage found in the Scripture that we can memorize and recite. A Living Word, on the other hand, is God’s message that is made alive in our lives. It is a God-breathed promise, which has the power to transform us, to compel us and to change us. It is not just a collection of words, but a life-giving declaration that fuels our faith and our hope.
Have you ever wondered if God were in business today, where would He put His investment?
Everybody needs this small seed of hope whether you are a patient, a doctor or a nurse. There is only One source.
A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed. Psalm 11:25
Just earlier this week, everyone was shocked with the tragic news on the death of Robin Williams. A popular and widely acclaimed actor, a gifted and funny stand-up comedian, a wealthy producer and an accomplished screenwriter.
