When Enough Is Really Enough

When trials and tribulations are too much to bear, you might wonder when enough is really enough. However, every tribulation you encounter has to run its course. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation works patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope makes us not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us (Romans 5:3-5).

There are various tribulations that you will encounter in this world, but every tribulation will make you stronger. You have to thank God in all circumstances, as you don’t know what He’s working out through them. So instead of moping over your broken heart, thank God that your heart has been broken. Had it not been broken, how would you learn to be strong?

How can you learn how to stand, if you have never fallen? That’s where trust and faith comes in. Through any situation that you encounter, there’s a purpose. As a result, you must remember that God will work through it for your good (Romans 8:28). I am sure so many times, you have proven this to be true. It’s always great to have everything good in life, without having to go through any bad times, but this world is far from perfect. God did not promise you days without pain, laughter without sorrow, or sunshine without rain. All in all, He did promised strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way. If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.


Serve the Lord



We wish you all life’s happiness and every lovely thing.
With days of golden sunshine and years of endless spring.
We wish you love abundantly, that never seems to cease;
Your daytimes filled with laughter and your nights with gentle peace.
To never feel the pain of want, to have the best of health;
May sorrow never cross your door, your purse be great with wealth.
But most of all We wish you this, the greatest wish there is,
That God will ever Bless YOU and will ever call you His!


A Season To Be Joyful


From Our Family To Yours

We wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas!

It’s a season to be joyful. Therefore, give thanks for what you still have, and is able to do. Do not worry about what’s already gone, and you’re not able to do anymore.

Remember the reason for the season, and that Jesus brought peace, joy and hope to this world.

Whether you’re staying home for the holidays or you’re traveling, please be safe.

God bless you and your family.

Holy Alphabet for Thanksgiving


A lthough things are not perfect
B ecause of trial or pain
C ontinue in thanksgiving
D o not begin to blame
E ven when the times are hard
F ierce winds are bound to blow
G od is forever able
H old on to what you know
I magine life without His love
oy would cease to be
K eep thanking Him for all the things
L ove imparts to thee
M ove out of ‘Camp Complaining’
N o weapon that is known
O n earth can yield the power
P raise can do alone
Q uit looking at the future
R edeem the time at hand
S tart every day with worship
T o ‘thank’ is a command
U ntil we see Him coming
V ictorious in the sky
W e’ll run the race with gratitude
X alting God most high
Y es, there’ll be good times and yes some will be bad, but…
Z ion waits in glory…where none are ever sad!

‘I am too blessed to be stressed!’ The shortest distance between a problem and a solution is the distance between your knees and the floor. The one who kneels to the Lord can stand up to anything.

Love and peace be with you forever, Amen.

If you have been trying so hard to fight your own battles, but kept losing in the process, then you need to rethink your strategies. I am not telling you to sit back, and have others walk all over you. However, you have to get to a point in your life where you allow God to fight your battles for you. He will not put you in the front line. Instead, He will take all the darts, while shielding you. He is capable of facing your battles better than you do. Accordingly, the fight is not against your neighbors, co-workers, spouses, friends, children, families, or others you may meet along the way. The fight is against the ruler of darkness.

As the scripture highlights, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12). Therefore, your real enemy is not those around you, but satan himself. He is a spirit, and the ruler of darkness. He sets out to use anyone he can recruit against you, in order to have you defeated, depressed and discouraged.

Considering this, you are up against a spirit of darkness. Therefore, when satan knocks at your door, just say, “Jesus, can you get that for me?” Leave your battles up to the Lord. He will fight for you (Exodus 14:14). I used to try to fight my battles for myself; however, I have come to a point in my life where I have Jesus fighting for me. Consequently, I have been gaining a lot of victories. 

When satan realizes that you are not taking matters into your own hands anymore, he will feel like you have given up. Notwithstanding, you have not given up, but have secretly given your battles to the Lord.

Exodus 14When you have done what you can, God will do what you can’t.


Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem is celebrated today as Palm Sunday. As He made His entry into Jerusalem, the people were very excited. They shouted, “Hosanna! Blessed is the King” (John 12:13). The word “Hosanna” means “save us, we pray.”

Many times you may be going through several different obstacles in your life, which leave you to wonder if God is with you. Or better yet, if He is even near you. In any event, God is always with you. It doesn’t matter your circumstances, or how bad you may feel. He is with you. He says, “I will never leave you or forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5).

So today is a day to acknowledge that you are never alone. Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem was the beginning of your salvation.

So if you are in a bind today, and need Jesus’ grace, just cry out, “Hosanna!” God will hear and save you. He will guide you through any situation that seems hopeless, because He brought hope, peace and joy into this world. Not only so, but He loves and cares for you with an everlasting love. No greater love is there than His, that He laid down His precious life for you (John 15:13).

Do you think you are alone? “I’m with you; says the Lord.”

Don’t Run From Your Trials

Everyone faces many trials; however, these trials are not in vain. God uses them to do a work in us, developing us into mature Christians.

In James 1:2-4, we are told, Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. In other words, God uses the tough times in life to sharpen us, making us mature and complete Christians.

Furthermore, God will not permit you to remain in the same trials all of your life; in His proper timing He will deliver you. Psalm 34:17 says, The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.

So don’t run from your trials, because the testing of your faith develops you into a mature and complete Christian.
