Worry not

Worry not
When you want
To go fast
In order that
You may
Arrive early,
But you cannot
Do so,
Because
The road is rough
And driving slow
And prudent,
Take it easy;
Don’t worry;
God has a plan;
And his plan
For you
Is always better
Than your plan
For yourself;
Indeed, his plan
Is ever the best;
And that is what
You must follow.
Don’t worry;
Don’t complain;
That will not help;
Instead.
It will hurt you.

A mere waste

Uncertainty brings worry;
And worry is not good,
Though it is unavoidable,
However hard you try;
Of course, you can control
Or limit worry;
There is actually no reason
to worry;
That is the simple truth;
And a lot of the things
Go wrong when you worry;
Intriguingly, many things
You worry might happen
Never happen;
And you end up worrying
For nothing.
Worry then becomes
A mere waste of time
A mere waste of energy;
In short, a mere waste.

Why worry so much

God says dont worry;
The word of God is clear
On that;
Read your bible;
Do you have a reason
To worry?
Why worry?
What do you worry about?
And what use to worry?
I don’t think you have
A reason or excuse to worry;
If you worry
Then you lack faith
In God;
But you have no excuse
To lack faith in God;
God is your creator;
You did not make yourself;
Your parents did not make you;
They were only channels
Through which you passed
To be here,
Your creator is God;
Whom you don’t see,
But who exists;
Like the air we don’t see,
But which is real;
And we cannot survive
If we are deprived of it.
In the same way,
We are dead
If we do not have God
In our life.
It is absolutely imperative
That you know God,
And have him in your life.

I am not afraid

I am on my way;
My journey is long
And short;
I know exactly
Where I am going;
I know not
Where I am going;
How contradictory!
That is life;
I am not afraid;
And I am afraid;
I am not worried;
And I am worried;
I could miss my way,
I cannot miss my way;
Because, I am not alone;
I have an able companion,
Who is my guide,
And my helper as well;
He knows the way,
To his finger tips;
As no other one does;
Who knows this guide?
Jesus, the Master;
The king;
The king of glory;
The king of kings;
Jesus of Nazareth
Who died on the cross
For you and I.
He holds my hand,
As captain of my ship,
No matter the storms
He will sail me
To safety shores!
I am, indeed, not afraid.

Do you worry about how to stop worrying ?

Do you worry about how to stop worrying ?

“So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.”
Matthew 6:25-34

I am not here not to give the million reasons why we worry, I am here to stress the point that we worry forever.

Worry is the main cause of worry.

We worry because we think a lot.

We think a lot because we imagine a lot.

We imagine a lot because we think a lot.

So the vicious cycle formed.And there in no stop to it.

Is it because we lack faith in ourselves ? I don’t know.

Cambridge Dictionary defines worry as

“To think about problems or unpleasant things that might happen in a way that makes you feel unhappy and frightened”.

I can tell the  three broad reasons why we worry.

1.We worry because we foresee our unknown future with millions of possibilities,majority with negative thoughts.

2. We worry because of our assumptions.

3. We worry about the past that happened,we worry about the present in real-time happenings and we worry about future because of uncertainty.

My point here is it is impossible to stop worrying……… however much saints bombard you with saintly advice regarding dos and don’ts.

Again I reiterate ” Life without worry is not possible” Remember you worry till the end of your life.I am brutally frank .In other words……

If you worry …you are breathing.

If you are not worrying …you are dead.

So don’t make any attempts to stop worrying otherwise  you are the loser at every attempt.

Don’t worry ,be happy ……….. is just not practical !!

Stewardess of the Sky

What if today was the last day as you know it? Would you wake and pray, read texts from the Bible, or go for a walk and talk to God? What would you do? Would you do anything different to ensure the quality of your everlasting life in heaven? Is there a place safe from Satan’s atrocities and free from worry? Isn’t it humbling to realize we are at the hands of a merciful creator who created us to bring Him glory on earth?

Rest assured, our God is greater than all things known to man. But His love for us is constant for He already knows our destiny. I hear your sad thoughts, but know God has you in His palms. Place your faith on a plane, flying high, like a stewardess in the sky. Your faith will be redeemed when the end of the flight returns in the night. God promises a safe journey to all believers as we fight the hell here on earth. Putting God first is the difference between harmony and disasters, hatred and peace in the world.

I wonder what goes through the mind of some people? Are papers in order and wills drawn up to protect the living? Do you live in denial today could be your last? Only our Father in heaven has the final decision for our life span. Don’t let Satan stoke the fires of doubt, worry, and fear. Trust God and surrender your life to Him. Our great Creator will govern your days with infinite wisdom and power. Would you want it any other way? He sees the light at the end of your tunnel.

“If we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die we die to the Lord; so then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s” (Romans 14:8).

As a stewardess of the sky set your spirit high above the earth. Let God handle the misfortune which contrives to make your mind soured. No matter how bad things may appear, God is mightier than all evil.

A cure for your worries is just a prayer away as long as it’s mailed in faith. But don’t forget to push the send button as God waits on your prayers. Faith in our Father will allow you good fortune. Serve Him like a stewardess in the sky and be prepared as God sends answers in your direction. Blessed be our Father in heaven.

Struggle is inevitable

All my fears were allayed;
There really was no reason
To fear;
Simply no reason to worry;
It was no easy nut to crack,
All the same, we cracked it;
And that is how it is in life;
Nothing is a bed of roses;
You have to fight for
What you want,
And keep on fighting till
You get it;
The problem with many people
I know is
They think life is a bed of roses.
That they can succeed without struggling;
You will hear them say
Struggle is not their portion;
They fail to know everone
Must struggle to succeed;
No one likes to struggle
But struggle is inevitable.
My fears were allayed
Because I struggled
But succeeded.

Faith for Two

It’s common to hide in the shadows of doubt. We often exhibit some kind of fear – either instilled at a young age or because of a subliminal act which caused us to become negative. Living in faith or placing trust in something you cannot directly touch sometimes seems almost impossible.

On the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus taught of the futility of worrying about things you cannot control. He used the example of food and clothing, but His message was unmistakable–seek the kingdom of God, trust in your Father, and He will provide for you!

Matthew 6:25-27

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

One of my favorite sayings is “where there is fear there is no FAITH.” You can’t have both fear and faith! But, sometimes in life, those weakened by illness need a little support from those whose faith is a bit stronger. I find myself in a position, more times than not, administering to those who need help. God often speaks in scriptures of our duty, as Christians, to bear another’s burdens and give encouragement to others. It shines the example of His precious love. Having faith for two is so essential.

Jesus cured the lame and sick in the name of God. He never questioned this gift to heal the sick nor the strength of His conviction, which came from His Father. We have the same capabilities, believe or not, if we overcome our fears; for example, can you imagine how Moses, an ex-murderer, felt when God asked him to lead all the Israelites out of Egypt and across the Red Sea? He must have been scared out of his wits, but he had enough faith for all forty thousand people to succeed.

What about Noah? He was mystified by God’s request to build an ark because God was going to flood the earth of all sin. Could he hold the faith for two? The townspeople laughed and mocked him as he built the boat which would carry the future generations of life. Through the worries he faced, his mission was successful anyway because we are here today to relay the bible story.

On a personal level, my wife held the faith for two as she sought to find me after a thirty-two-year hiatus in our friendship. She finally found me in 2016, and God supported our dream of publishing my book and having a beautiful marriage. Our story of incredible odds leads me to believe it was only God involved in our success story. As many of you know, my wife had a scarf with a severe health issue. I know there were times her faith wavered amid a grim diagnosis; but I carried her, in my faith for two, and God took care of the rest.

We should examine ourselves and understand we have the strength to carry our loved ones through difficult times. Staying in prayer, uplifting each other’s spirit, and asking for God’s guidance will supply you with everything you need. It is empowering to know God will transform our body and soul when we carry the faith for two.

You worry for nothing (Be inspired today 266 by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

You worry for nothing
When it will not help;
Worry has never helped;
Instead, it blurs your mind,
And worsens things for you;
If things don’t go well,
You need a cool head,
Not a worried mind,
To think up solutions;
Stop worrying and live;
Worry and mess it up;
See how worried people end;
More worried than ever;
Where they end;
Often on the sick bed;
You better stop worrying;
You worry for nothing.
