Home sweet home: Joel Savage enjoys the sweet juicy water of fresh coconut.

The axiom, “All work and no play, makes Jack a dull boy” might have originally been conceived by a domestic idealist, who knows the truth. Working hard without a break can affect your health. The impact can take its toll on you.

This is the reason I decided to visit my mother at the age of 80, in Ghana, after five years. Seeing her grey hair, but strong and healthy, boosted my happiness. In my daily prayers I always ask God to give her long life, to enjoy her fruits of labour, and it seems He has answered my prayers.

My mother after losing her husband at the age of 44, in 1976, (The Writer Died) https://goo.gl/hLBqj4, left with eight children, without any support, took the responsibility alone to make sure that we were fed, clothed, accommodated and educated.

In Ghana, I visited many places including the Cape Coast castle, in the central region of Ghana and some villages, such as ‘Akatechiwa’ which has intriguing story leading to the village’s name. I will be sharing all the interesting articles pertaining my visit with you very soon on social media.

Apart from my adventure and exploration, I enjoyed the fresh tropical fruits, such as coconut, mango, sweet apple etc. Many in foreign countries, such as Europeans and Americans may have the experience of tasting juicy canned tropical fruits, but nothing compares to the original fresh taste of tropical fruits taken moments from the trees in Ghana or Africa generally.

Many Europeans and Americans yearly make a trip to Ghana to explore its ancient castles and forts and some have settled finally in the country, saying good bye to Europe and America. Don’t let the foreign media deceive you. Be part of those visiting Ghana.

The Coconut tree: I know that there are thousands of readers interested in non-fiction genre of books, thus; one of my goals is to share my non-fiction books through diversity of culture. My utterly and compelling collections are destined to capture the reader’s attention and interest, to learn about other people’s culture and heritage.

My books are in the categories of travel, immigration, health and entertainment. The personal account of the stories reflect on the places I visited in Africa, such as Ghana, Guinea, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Sierra Leone, Togo, Benin and Gambia. And in Europe, it’s about life in Barcelona, Spain, Aahus, Denmark, England, Amsterdam, Holland, Rome, Italy and Antwerp, Belgium.

The African stories act like a guide to European and Americans tourists. The books will teach you how to avoid being a victim to thieves, armed robbers and immigration crooks, that prey on nationals and foreigners, while the Europeans stories teach Africans how to survive in Europe, without papers and crime.

Do You Experience God’s Miracle In Your Life?

Genesis 2I grew up in a family that strongly believes in God. At the corner of my parents’ bed room, stands a small table covered with a white cloth. On this table, lies the Holy Bible, which belongs to my mother. She wakes up early in the morning to pray without ceasing. Sometimes I see her shedding tears in her prayers, when she feels her prayers had been answered or touched spiritually.

Life, to many is sex, enjoyment, doing drugs, rock and roll, then after, you say good bye to your friends, when it’s time to go and sleep peacefully or tormented in your grave. That’s not the meaning of life. Life has a significant meaning or purpose. Watching my mother, each morning, behind the small table, I developed certain interest in seeking the face of God and started following her footsteps.

I read my Bible daily, and tried my best to live to the principle the holy book teaches. Like everyone, I wasn’t perfect, I did many things which I shouldn’t do as a child, but not in my adult hood. As I begin to mature, I started experiencing the miracle of God’s hand in my life. There are times I joke about it saying: Death doesn’t like ugly people, the reason I’m still living.

I was once carried away by the sea, because I couldn’t swim. Like Jonah in the belly of the whale and brought to the shores of Nineveh, after people gave up to save me, they watched as a mighty wave brought me ashore. The impact was heavy and the state of shock I find myself in at that moment, prevented me to put on my clothes. I walked home naked. Till now I’m scared of the sea and can’t swim.

I was once crossing a busy street in Africa, after watching both sides of the road, I felt secured to cross, but from nowhere I was caught up in the middle of the road, when a taxi hits me. Like a superman, I find my body in the mid-air, landing on top of the vehicle’s bonnet. The impact severely damaged the bonnet, but I survived.

In Africa, I was travelling on a mini-bus with other passengers. It was a very sunny day. I think the pressure in the vehicle’s Tyre warmed up to certain degrees Celsius, thus; one of the front Tyre’s exploded. The vehicle somersaulted continuously and finally landed on its side. I jumped out from the front seat without a scratch, when many were rushed to the hospital with injuries.

In Lagos State, Nigeria, I was kidnapped by armed robbers in military uniform. It was a swift action which took me by surprise. I was holding a small hand bag which attracted them. They thought probably the bag has over a million dollars. In the rear of the car, I struggled with them and wouldn’t let the bag go, while the butt of the rifles they were holding rain on every part of my body, including my head.

After every attempt failed, they pushed me from the vehicle while in motion and I landed on the ground with a force, like a bag of salt. I stood up, brushed the dust off my body and walked home. But the scars of the beating I had, can still be traced on my body today, after three decades.

In Amsterdam, I was nearly killed by a woman while on my bicycle. I fell and rolled ahead, while her front Tyre were on my bicycle. According to her, the sun partially blinded her, so she didn’t see me. I had bruises all over my body. She carried my badly damaged bicycle to a repairers’ shop and paid for the cost. Anxious to know of my condition, she called me the next day. I told her I’m doing well. That was the last time she called.

In Antwerp, Belgium, after holidays in Africa, I came back penniless with bills to pay. There was a particular one I needed time to pay 110 Euros at my son’s secondary school. That was a second letter reminding me, thus; the third letter wouldn’t be good for me. The end of the month to get my salary was still far, thus; the situation was actually disturbing.

It was winter and very dark, on my way to work, I spotted something like a folded money on the bicycle lane. I stopped and walked back to see if it’s money or mind is just playing tricks on me. Behold, it was money. I took it and unfolded it. Guess how much? Two fifty Euro notes, one ten Euro note and one five Euro note, a total of 115 Euros.

After work, I quickly went home to pay the 110 Euros to the school and used the five Euros to buy some few thing I needed most. There is no need to doubt over these stories, because they came from Joel Savage, the writer who loves non-fiction articles and books. Have you ever experienced the miracle of God’s hand in your life?

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Said Jesus at Matthew 7:7. Just as sports is good for the body, reading the Bible is good for the mind and your spiritual being.

Why We Should Crave For Spiritual Things Than Material Things

Peace 3

Many dream of becoming a millionaire and they want it quick, because it is made to understand that without money or wealth, there wouldn’t be any success in life. Thus, the love for money and the chase for wealth go on without ceasing, bringing crime, greed, misery and death to our homes.

When the great teacher, Jesus Christ, was tempted by Satan, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.” He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.’ Jesus’ answer indicates that human beings need also spiritual food.

What is spiritual food by the way? Just like we need physical food for physical strength, we need spiritual food for spiritual strength. Why spiritual strength necessary for man?  At every moment we need spiritual strength to fight bravely against fear, doubt, worry, jealousy and imperfection. Also spiritual strength helps us to endure daily trials and tribulations, without thinking of ending your life in the deepest crisis.

Evidently, there is no doubt that many people lack spiritual strength to fight some of these unseen forces and immoralities, drifting them into the tunnel of darkness. The Buddhist, Spiritual leaders and Yoga teachers, can tell you the significance of spirituality, because when we pray and meditate, we crave for spiritual things, by reading the scriptures, without much desire for material things. After all what shall it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul? We came with nothing into the world and we leave with nothing.

Spiritual strength is acquired through daily prayers and meditation. It gives one the ability to liberate himself and to manifest the Divine on earth.  Many rich people even though have thousands of friends, due to the lack of strength in the heart; they still feel lonely and insecure. It is very hard to forgive sometimes when someone hurts you, but we must try to forgive, because forgiveness brings unexpected showers of blessing.

I have said it over and over that ‘Whatever happens to me benefits me.’ Prayers, meditation, the lessons and whatever I’ve gone through in my life, have given me the knowledge and wisdom to raise a happy family, to avoid crime, being a drug addict or trafficker and keeping me from going to jail. This makes me feel like a millionaire even though I’ve no penny in my pocket.

The 7 Most Powerful Prayers That Will Change Your Life Forever

“Being raised in a Christian family, it’s very had for any atheist or non-believer to convince me that there is no God, because from childhood, I’ve experienced and felt the healing, comfort and protection hand of God. I don’t need to see to believe, because it’s written ‘God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” John 4: 24. I haven’t shared my experience with God yet in any book, but that wouldn’t prevent me to feature this great book on my blog today.” – Joel Savage.

If Churches Are Being Converted To Drinking Pubs, Then Let Muslims Build Their Mosques

Church conversion in Britain to beer parlours

An English church converted to drinking pub, whilst the government spends millions of pounds fighting against teenage pregnancy and alcoholism.

The whole world is complaining and protesting against the building of mosques in Europe and America because they think it’s one of the measures to prevent Muslims from dominating mankind.  However, if we live in a world of few Christians and millions of atheists, putting down a church or converting a church to a drinking pub, is a grave mistake. Islam is a religion that reveres Allah, thus; there is no Islamic country that would convert a mosque to a drinking pub. This is what everyone should know.

The church is the temple of God, where devoted Christians and those who believe in God often worship, besides the church serves many purposes by playing an important role in the society. Even though not everyone believes in the existence of God, the church has transformed and changed millions of lives in our society today.

I quite understand when Jesus couldn’t control his anger when he entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves because his father’s house of worship has become a den of thieves and gamblers.  Matthew 21:12.

 

Alcoholism and teenage pregnancy

Britain booms with teenage pregnancy: 14-year-old pregnant schoolgirl.

Jesus did that because the temple must be kept holy and not a place for undesired purposes. In such a crucial period whereby the youths want to experience the freedom the world offers, which has led to the increase of crime, immorality, drinking, drug abuse, teenage pregnancy, and suicide, conversion of churches to drinking pubs, should have been discouraged by any serious and intelligent leader who appreciates and cares about human life.

How can leaders and heads of churches continue to disrespect God, by converting churches to drinking pubs, when they are desperately fighting to save teenagers from alcoholism, drug abuse, and suicides? Looking for a church to worship God in any European country I visited, was one of my priorities because it is not only the body that needs food but the spirit as well. This the secret to the peaceful and happy life in Africa, in the midst of poverty and diseases.

The Buddhist, Monks and those following Yoga activities, will explain the reason one needs spiritual food, sometimes leading to the search of spiritual food, instead of material things. Churches in Europe have the best architectural designs and interior decoration, but many times they are completely empty. One only sees people in the church when there is marriage or the coffin of the dead to receive his or her last prayers.

 

Alcoholism and teenage pregnancy

Teenage drinking is one of the social problems costing Britain a fortune.

Despite the countless roles of the church in the community, including the support of families, providing moral foundation and community awareness necessary for the success of the community, leaders continue to mess the society with vain selfish political ideas. I don’t blame Muslims requesting to build mosques, because they have seen the weakness and the stupidity of such leaders, by continuing defiling God, inviting teenagers to succumb to drugs and immorality.

In Hungary sold consecrated church now serves as a night and stripping club, while others are been demolished. Apart from the conversion of churches to drinking pubs in Britain, certain churches have been turned into mosques, while in Cyprus the former St Nicholas Cathedral is now the Lala Mustafa Pasha Mosque.

In the Netherlands, award-winning architects recently turned a former Dominican church in Maastricht into a bookshop, with a reading area and Café in the apse. We shouldn’t expect the world to be a better place in this condition and we shouldn’t expect our children to abstain from morally and destructive activities because that’s what politicians, some parents and some head of churches gone astray, have planted.
