Who do you think you are?




I heard someone said: Who do you think you are to preach about the bible? 
What knowledge do you have to proclaim that the words are true? You are not even perfect! Not a priest either.
Well, God made me whole! A life that was devastated. A body that was in the mud had been cleansed and restored.
A person with a zero knowledge, but God had given understanding to climb the ladder of succees.
An imperfect one that God is molding into perfectness.
A person that God helped in times of trials and needs.
Once had a sorrowful heart, but is now full of joy.
A lost person that found the way to life.
Feeling unworthy, but Jesus died for, to show that I am precious.
Yes, I have the right to tell about God's goodness, because I had seen and experience it in my life and that is all I need.

In the Potter's hands


Father, thank you that I am like  a clay that you can mold 
with your gentle and loving hands.
It would be so marvelous to be decorated by your artistic mind.
To be admired because I am created by you.
Designed by the best  CREATOR of all.
Mold me Lord as a vessel that can be useful
for you and for others.
I pray in Jesus name.

Father, make our heart soft and sensitive for you TODAY.
Be obedient when we walk in the wilderness or in the flowering fields.
Let our hearts be always tunes in to you,

I pray that we encourage each other daily.

Ignored beauty



Father, help me to look upwards,
especially, when I am climbing a rugged mountain.
Not to focus on the rough trail 
or my imperfection or others.
Let me focus on the beauty of your holiness. 
The awesome scenery.
The trees, the sky, the mountains,
 that are filled with vibrant colors.
Let my eyes be always on you, 
who have peace, joy and happiness.

Confessing!



Confessing...
To confess that we are wrong and ask for forgiveness can be hard,
especially when we want to cling to what we feel.
How about a sin that really destroying us body, soul and spirit little by little?
All those things can be a heavy burden to bear at the end.


Father, let us be aware of whatever sin or unforgiveness we are carrying in our hearts.
Let everyone longs to repent. Forgive and be forgiven.
That will bring us more closer to you
and enjoy your presence.
Then we will have a genuine smiles 
on our faces and a lighter heart.

Words...


Thank you Lord that your word is free for the taking! It is near us.
We can profess your words and claim your promises. 
We can fill our hearts with your love seed. To make it grow and bear fruits.
How wonderful it would be to share the fruits of your love.


Thank you for you richly bless all who call unto thee. You saves the lost souls and let them find haven in you.
A haven where we can feel safe despite of danger.
A place where we will never be alone, 
in every darkness we encounter in life.
A place where we can find healing for body, soul and spirit.
That is really a place for me...and for all who believes.
Amen
