I don’t fully understand the parable from Luke 19 v11 – v27
fyeahafrica: THE RAPE OF THE SAMBURU WOMEN For more than fifty years, England has maintained military training facilities in the Samburu region of its former colony, Kenya. During this period, women in the area have faced an epidemic of rape. Women from the Samburu, Massai, Rendile and Turkana indigenous communities have filed more than 600 official rape claims against British soldiers. Yet,...
mannequinmotives asked: I'm just so captivated by your blog- so raw, so real. Thanks for having the guts to not be afraid to show your weaknesses and downfalls so that others may learn and be challenged.
God, I thank You that I am not like the rest of...
The other day I was looking at a girl smoking, and I was judging her, thinking “Come on, all the science is there, it’s even on the package, what a silly thing to do your body”. And I just stopped and thought to myself, which is worse, her vice that is displayed for all to see or yours, that you alone entertain – what a silly thing to do to your mind. Which is worse? Luke 18 V14 …for everyone who...
Life is like a sine curve
I used to think that no matter what life throws at you, you should always be happy. You should always put on a smile. You should always be positive and upbeat. Quite frankly, that’s rubbish. Only crazy people are allowed to be happy all the time. Life is like a sine curve or a roller coaster we have to enjoy it while we’re up, and when we are down, (and we do get down, the sooner...
I feel so restless.
mikefrawley: Fear cannot touch me, nor dismay All will be well, come what may If in doubt, I simply pray That I might do your will today Hope and love then guide my way
Luke 17V1 AND [Jesus] said to His disciples, Temptations (snares, traps set to entice to sin) are sure to come, but woe to him by or through whom they come! Do not lead others into sin. I am guilty of this. Father, forgive me.
"Lady" on the tram.
Firstly, kudos to her for having the balls to actually be racist infront of the people she hates. Rather than being an internet troll she actually said “go back to your country” (which is apparently in Nicaragua or did she try to say nigger-agua..idk) in a tram full of many non whites. That takes courage guys, *round of applause* It is a mystery how humans can generate so much hate...
i have noticed that girls like words more than boys. also girls LOVE detail in everything. they want to know what, how, when, where. WHY??
shaarktooth asked: Hey, remember Romans 8:39? "No height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord." Sounds like a great promise to me :) So don't worry! Nothing can take your salvation away. TY for having such a great and encouraging blog :)
If I died, right now, RIGHT NOW, would I go to heaven? This question torments me. And it shouldn’t be so! There is no reason I should not end up in Heaven. Except my foolishness.
Repentance? It is not repentance when you want to do it again. And God sees my heart. I know my heart …to a certain extent. So I’m not going insult God with a fake repentance. But I need to sort things out in my head.
Use every adversity to stimulate you to creative survival…[Luke 16 MSG] Luke 16V23 sends shivers down my spine – “and being in torments in Hades, he saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.” Oh man the entire Rich Man and Lazarus passage is scary! It’s not a parable. This is real life.
I have not watched porn in more than a month! No urge to either. One demon dooooooooowwwwwwwn!

got head yesterday. had weed today. freedom has limits. to what extent should I exercise my freedom? I need to write down what my limits should be. I don’t really know how to feel.

Conversations with an older friend: “I never tell anyone I love them, I don’t throw around that word, matter of fact I hardly use it. So before I even tell [girlfriend] I love her, I call up my mum and at the end of every conversation I tell her I love her, same thing with dad. Now I’ve started doing it with my brothers and sister - they think it’s weird obviously; my...
PIGS + COPS
Let me tell you a story: My uncle who is black, works for Scotland Yard. One day he was strolling through the streets of London with his wife and they decided to pop into a cornershop to get some ice cream. Upon entering he found a …disorderly youth, who was refusing to pay for something and was threatening the owner. Obviously my uncle stepped in, told him to calm down, but he didn’t...
my hat size is 6 7/8. in case you wanted to know.
I was trying to get to bed the other night but I just kept remembering snippets of conversations with people that I didn’t want to remember, things that ticked me off, or I wish I had a better response too, these were words I didn’t want clinging to my soul. And this happens quite frequently. So I got up, and was like God, I don’t like this, I don’t like remembering this...
dreamerontheroof asked: You are so incredibly real! I enjoy reading your posts because they are so raw and full of utter honesty I can't even describe it. You talk about your relationship with God, not from a skeptical perspective, but from a critical one. The fact that you are all about self improvement and are trying so hard to live like Christ did is amazing, but you admit that you are human I appreciate that...
I just watched a video on TED about Nature, beauty and gratitude. Click HERE to see it. One line stuck with me “The only appropriate response to a new morning is gratitude.”
there is a massive tug of war going on between my spirit and soul!
i want to be loved and needed.
I think I’m a hypocrite. There’s no point in reading the Bible if I’m not gonna do what it says. Maybe I’m being too harsh on myself cos there are little improvements in my life. But honestly my actions a lot of times do not reflect the Bible that I read everyday. I’m being lukewarm. Quite frankly I’m being a coward. I’m not throwing myself into the deep...
You don’t need a manual, you only need Emmanuel.– Jon Courson (via siani1213)
Luke 11 V23 …He who does not gather with Me scatters. hmmm The idea that simply beating a vice/ unclean spirit is not enough in v24 is a little frightening, but that you have to replace that space with something. So as I’m trying to get rid of a vice, I must replace it with something else. But what can you replace a vice with – practically? V34 The lamp of the body is the eye…So true!
