    Protection for me and my family

    Hi guys. I am struggling with people being horrible to me. I serve God so it is a counter attack from the enemy. Please pray for me and my loved ones that we hold onto faith and wisdom and watch our hearts. Bless you
  2. Hi guys, btw moving my posts to different forums areas is great and might be an answer to prayer as more people might read and be helped. Thankyou. I prayed to Jesus the other day and said that I want to serve more and more as I enjoy it. Just had a day of serving lots and I feel great but their is always this niggle inside of me saying that I am maybr missing something out that is important. On the other hand I have faith that I will help a lot of people. Is this common for Christians do you think and is this niggle just the enemy? Please advise me from any experience you have had of this or provide any ideas what the wombats is occuring 😊

    Quick prayer for me and my family to get through year

    Thankyou guys. I just posted Mathew 6:4 on a post on this forum just now but I only put this prayer request we are on currently so that people would know why I am being oppressed in the hope that things would get better. Bless you ☺

    Examine your heart

    Examine your heart "But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you." Matthew 6:3‭-‬4 ESV When you give soft, hot food and a decaf hot drink to the homeless, follow the above instructions and you will be rewarded. That is what it says. I believe this as I am a Christian and I am sure that Jesus believes it as Jesus is the Word and the Word is the bible. Your heart is your motivations so examine it, put it right and then be blessed and rewarded. Do not go out to help people in order to get a reward but do realise that God encourages love and helping people therefore you will be blessed. Sausage roll, oops er, shalom ☺
  6. Hi guys, Please make a quick prayer for me and my family to get through this year. Do things like street preach, help the homeless, witness to the lads at the skatepark and other stuff therefore we are oppressed by the powers that be. Please pray we would be humble and forgive them. Life is horrible at home too. I have no voice hear on my own and I want to escape the pain and isolation here. Bless you

    Stocking filler - glasses wipes

    Stocking filler - glasses wipes You can get a pack of about 20 for about a £1 at any good general store. They make your glasses very clear and you will actually be surprised how much this will change your day as you will be able to see much clearer i.e. your site is one of your major senses. Also clean you smartphone screen and polish e-cigarette. Perfect stocking filler ☺ Shinom, oops er shalom ☺
  8. Christmas present - bike down hill, fold, bus up Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. Proverbs 3:17 ESV Fold up bikes are great for bus and train. Wisely choose a good quality one that is not too pricey. Get your tyres pumped up solid and go for a ride down and a hill and along flat which is more pleasant than up hill, fold your bike and get the bus back up the hill. Always bring a puncture repair kit and a spare inner tube if you are able to mend punctures. Pay for slime to be put in your tyres at a bike shop if you cannot repair punctures. It seals the puncture holes as you go along as the air from the hole binds the slime. Helmet, lights and high visibility jacket too obviously. This post is especially relevant if you are elderely. What a super xmas present for the one you love. Slarlom, oops er shalom ☺

    Wrap up this Winter - a few ideas 

    Wrap up this Winter - a few ideas Look after your body and wrap up snuggly and warm this Winter, your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit: "Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own" 1 Corinthians 6:19 ESV You lose the most of your body heat through your hands and your head so get gloves and a hat. Get some good quality fingerless gloves so you can stay warm and use your phone without needing to take them off. Get good quality cycling fingerless gloves as they are thick and nice. When you get back home, cup your hands under warm water from the sink tap. It is amazing how much this changes your body heat and it feels lovely. Shalom 😊
  10. The perfect solo coffee time - Word / relaxation / readings of wisdom Fancy a cuppa or a coffee (latte or mocha)? Then either at home with one of those chilled latte cartons or out at Costa (that will cost ya btw), do this (the perfect solo coffee): - Read yourself your fav Psalm (don't beat yourself up with the KJV version unless you like it). Got some faith from your Psalm, now read two Proverbs but make sure you understand it's riddle i.e. completely understand it (that is why I said only two). - Now slump in your chair like a lazy sloth, relax your whole sloth like body from toe to head and prepare for relaxed and thus effective reading that comes next. - Two pages at a time of three different, small, wisely chosen books e.g. 3:4 days a week fasting book (for God) and you happen to lose weight, nutritional handbook, and any other small book that does not make you feel like you are working as a labourer on a building site. Do this and so find yourself becoming wiser and so more joyful and wanting to bless others in a clever well thought out way. Shalom 😊
  11. You need to learn your verses, the fun way I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you. Psalms 119:11 ESV Get some verses into your heart after you have got them into your mind by learning them, then you will sin less and therefore feel good instead of horrid. Learning verses sounds boring I know, but there are ways that are fun. In this post I have mentioned a smartphone app. Forum members, please suggest other fun ways for people that do not have such techology e.g. have a Word off challenge with your friend at home; have a competition to see who can remember the most verses with their references. Get the "Remember Me" verse learning app on your smartphone. - Different styles of learning on the app e.g. it covers up words on the verse so that you have to guess and thus learn. Bit like a game and there are other fun ways too. - Use a bible version you enjoy so you will keep on with it. - Don't use the preloaded compilations of verses, find verses that are suited specificly to you. Remember the bible context of the verse though please. - Get Psalm verses that give you faith and then get Proverb verses so that you can receive Proverbs wisdom by faith. Knowing the Word well is vital so please relax and try your best to do it. Salmon, oops uh, Shalom 😊
  12. Computer skills - keyboard copy and paste better "Do you see a man skillful in his work? He will stand before kings; he will not stand before obscure men." Proverbs 22:29 ESV In this day and age you would be wise to become skillful and efficient with technology i.e. your home PC. Are you forever repeating what you have typed when you could just select, copy and paste it and therefore save a lot of time? You can right click with the mouse and copy, right click again and paste, but even better is to select your text, hold down the ctrl button and press c to copy and then hold ctrl button and press v to paste. You can hold the control button and press a to select all text within a text area also. Please, please learn this as it will significantly save you time, effort and you will being improving with technology. Shalom :)
  13. Accept discipline from God or situation gets even worse This is scriptural evidence in the right context that shows He will discipline us from time to time. Notice that He does it as He loves us as His children and it says we should not make light of it i.e. we should take heed of it. 1 John 3:1 (NIV) See what great love the Father has lavished on us that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! ..... Hebrews 12:5-6 (NIV) ..... my son, do not make light of the Lord's discipline and do not lose heart when he rebukes you, because the Lord disciplines the one he loves and chastens everyone he accepts as his son (or daughter). Real life example: A young son and his Father are sitting by a log fire in their house and the son is interested in looking at the flames of the fire. The son decides in curiosity to put his hands dangerously close to the flames. The Father then raises his voice at his son and slaps the sons wrist. The Father then explains to his son why he did that. He said "son, fire can hurt you in a serious way so I did that so that you will remember not to play with fire again". This brief discipline may seem harsh but but it is actually loving as this son will now never be burned by fire as he has learnt his lesson. Example of God's discipline: God can discipline us through situations and circumstances too e.g. if we are stupid and decide to try drugs then God may bring about a situation where you lose one of your material possessions whilst you are intoxicated and out of your mind. If you recognise what happened in heavenlies here and miss the possession that you lost, then you should learn to not do drugs ever again and thus be safe. If God is disciplining us then firstly, it is horrible for Him if we resist as He finds it hard enough anyway, smacking or raises His voice at His child that He loves so dearly. It is painful for Him to have to keep doing and wondering when it will end or when you will learn. It is also painful for you as He will not stop until you learn as you have to learn as you have to be right before you can get to heaven. It is absolutely horrible when we resist as it will continue like a deeply sad and grueling fight between two people who love each other. This post may seem harsh but lets not be in denial about this please. God loves in cuddly way sometimes but also in a stern way too, just like you might see any good earthly Father do. Shalom
  14. Do not get too relaxed If you are a Christian and you are feeling great and having good times (most usually after serving God this occurs), then keep your happy times rolling by not getting too relaxed as that is when the enemy catches you out and steals all your joy. Luke 4:13 And the devil had finished tempting Jesus, left Jesus and then waited for an opportune time. For example (ficticious scenarios): - You just preached and you know it was good as you know that your heart did it for Jesus when you did it. You are not married and when you get back home you are happy and decide too ask your girlfriend round for a coffee and chat. You feel great but you get too relaxed and the enemy tempts you with sin. You and your girlfriend snog before marraige and this short mad fun sin robs all your joy for a long time to come. Stay on your toes, you should have went to a cafe. Note: I have a girlfriend but this did not happen to us and we also have wise backup plans in place for any frustrations. - You have quit smoking for a year and an old friend from your last job turns up and you have a lovely chat about old times. You feel relaxed and happy in his company so you take the fag he offers you and you are hooked again. You got too relaxed and stung by temptation. Also should have packed your E-cigarette to have as an alternative instead. - Think ahead about when this might happen to you. Think of an example yourself, be prudent and keep your joy rolling. Shalom ☺

    Work clever not hard

    Work clever not hard To all the Christian's here and beyond. I want you to work clever not hard. Don't grit your teeth to get things done, things that if you were more clever, you would have realised did not need doing straight away. Work clever and be efficient: - Only wash up the pots and plates you need right now and leave the soapy water in with the rest so it is ready when you have a spare moment. - Visitors coming to sit in your lounge then only hoover the lounge as that is what they see. Do the rest later so you have time to sort some receipts out so you can easily find the ones you need to keep. - Have a calming Christian music playlist ready on your phone for when you are out so that you do not have to unlock your phone every time you want a track change. Calming music encourages a wise and clever spirit too. - Think what else you can do e.g. "maybe I can read my bible more efficiently using page markers. What else in my life can I do I wonder". Please, please, work clever not hard and you will win. Shalom ☺
