Inspirational Soul Food For Your Happy Weekend

Heavy rains remind us of challenges in life. Never ask for a lighter rain, just pray to God for a better umbrella. – That is the attitude!  Life is not about finding the right person, but creating the right relationship. It’s not how we care in the beginning, but how much we care till the very end.

Some people always throw stones in your path. It depends on what you make with them; a Wall or a Bridge? – Remember you are the architect of your life. Search for a good heart, but don’t search for a beautiful face, because beautiful things are not always good, but good things are always beautiful.

It’s not important to hold all the good cards in life, but it’s important how well you play with the cards you hold.  Often when we lose all hope and think this is the end, remember God and pray, it’s just a bend, not the end.’ – Have faith and have a successful life. One of the basic differences between God and humans is, God gives, gives and forgives.

But the human gets, gets, gets and forgets. Be thankful in life..If you think it is your alarm clock that woke you up this morning, try putting it beside a dead body and you will realise that it is the Grace of God that woke you up. If you are grateful to God, forward this to all your friends to inform them that it is JUST BY THE GRACE OF God that we are alive…

Can We Rise Above Negative Attitudes And Hurtful Feelings?

Have faith and depend on Jesus

People pray during a mass held outside the public school where 12 children were killed by a gunman last week in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

In the community, your neighbour can be your enemy, your brother can be your enemy and your sister can be your enemy. When two people have a difference, both often become angry. The reason we see sons rise against fathers, daughters against mothers, brother against brother and sister against sister.

Some of the painful and hurtful things in life, is when you don’t know where you went wrong, or the mistake you did, but someone hates you. You try to reason with the person, making efforts to settle, but since he has bad intentions, he isn’t prepared to make peace with you. Perhaps you have experienced a similar situation.

There are people who take other people’s quiet nature, submissiveness, and humbleness, as stupid or foolishness. Before you start hating someone, probably your close friend or relative, sit down with him, face to face, to let him or her know what the problem is. You can’t just begin calling the person a liar, fool and going far to tell your brother or sister of stealing your money to wed his wife or her husband, by writing letters.

Some people like to live a simple life, even though they can afford everything, including a car, yet he or she prefers to use a bicycle to work. That doesn’t mean that the person is stupid or has failed in life. If you live with pride and arrogance and wants to advertise your wealth, go on, because not everyone is interested in what you do.

People who live with pride feel very intelligent in their own eyes. When they are talking to you, they try to make you understand or believe they are the most intelligent people on earth. But the more you remain silent, to listen or read whatever they write, the more you see how stupid and foolish they are. Even the ten foolish virgins are all intelligent.

Most people often never think of how pride can be destructive. There was once a man who lives in Amsterdam. He was very famous, because of the way he lives and boastful nature. Anytime he travels to Africa, he demolishes part of the house he was building, suggesting to the builders to build a modern house, even though the plan of the house they were following was a modern plan. He was never satisfied with any modern house since he changes his mind frequently anytime he sees a beautiful house.

Unfortunately, he was involved in a serious crime. After serving his prison sentence, he was deported to Africa. He now lives in an uncompleted building for over a decade. As human beings, we need to be careful of the words that come from our mouth. There are words once spoken, they will come back to hurt or haunt you. You can’t reject something, then later want it back. You can’t take your brother to court when he asked you to sit down with him to solve the problem amicably.

Your uncontrollable anger and pride, are driving you to execute devilish plans against your brother, but nothing is working. That brother you are fighting against is using his precious time, seeking the intervention of Jesus, to give him the patience to endure the pain and temptations he is going through. And it works. Once you read your Bible each day or go to church to worship each Sunday, you learn certain practical principles, which will help you to overcome the hardest obstacles ahead of you.

I posted this article to encourage everyone facing any difficulties in life, to trust and believe in God. Try Jah’s love when everything fails. Seek the face of Jah in the world’s most widely read book: The Bible. It encourages us to cultivate qualities, such as discernment, love, kindness, insight, and patience. Above all the Bible can help you to promote peace and heal emotional wounds.

Belgium: Never Feel Sorry For A Mad Dog, It Will Turn Round And Bite You

If you want to know how cruel some people can be, just give them an inch. They will go for a yard, or give them a yard, they will definitely go for a mile. That’s the attitude of greedy and power thirsty people. All what they care about is power and they always look for the weak one to dominate, mishandle, torture, abuse and degrade them in every way they feel satisfied about it. The reason there is no peace in this world, but total chaos.

Many do ask the reason my articles reflect or show bitterness. There are many things one may find it difficult to understand, but if you are a black man or knows the bitter experience of the black man, you will quickly know or understand, the reason this person is very bitter. In a country like Belgium, which they don’t value the life of an African, just like how many don’t value the life of a Palestine, don’t expect me to be very happy, because they manufacture quality chocolates or beer.

I live in a country run by leaders including the Royal Family, even though the latter aren’t active in Belgium’s politics. In the same country, is a statue of a man, from the Royal Family who committed a serious crime in Africa during the colonial era. Leopold II killed and disfigured over ten million Africans, including children, yet Belgium thought he deserves a statue and streets named after him.

Would anyone be happy if treated like that? If you have a clean heart and love your neighbour like yourself, you will know this is not right, but completely wrong or even an abomination. That’s my bitterness. Call me a bad person and let God ask you: What do you worship Satan? Any time I see the statue of Leopold in Brussels, my blood runs cold, but I am powerless. I am not a terrorist to throw a bomb at that statue, to bring it down like how Sadam Hussein’s came tumbling down. But since the pen is mightier than the sword, I will continue to write and make my message clear to the Belgium leaders.

They can ignore me because ‘I am a common African, many people without sincere heart use as door mat,’ but I will remind them that “The chicken always comes back home to roost.” If you plant orange, you will reap an orange and if you plant evil, you will reap evil. They will one day have a taste of their own medicine, before they will fully understand the bitterness of this writer. It’s really sad but Africans shall continue to endure it without suicide like always.

How can the world go free for Jesus Christ who didn’t commit any crime to carry the cross alone? Those who committed the crime like Belgium, deserves to carry Christ’s heavy load. The reason I will never feel sorry for Belgium.

A Throne In Brussels: Britain, The Saxe-Coburgs And The Belgianisation Of Europe

Brussels 2

Paul Belien argues that the pan-European super-state currently in the making will resemble a ‘Greater Belgium’ rather than a ‘Greater Switzerland’, since Europe will also be an artificial construct.

Belgium has infected EU political attitudes and acts as a model for the EU — a failed attempt to’construct a nation’ out of different peoples with separate languages and traditions.

To learn what the EU as a single state might be like, take up this highly readable mix of history, analysis and warning. You’ll never feel the same about Belgium or Europe again.
