Silence


Hey there todays writing will be short.

I just want to zoom in on the fact that people can get hurt by helping and investing (spiritual or financial) in others. Now don’t get me wrong at all time you need to help your brothers and sisters out. You see sometimes you can invest a lot of time in a person it seems like he is getting it and turns out doing the opposite (disappointment). Of course this person is hurt and is thinking “I should’ve listen” but it is to late and comes back at you asking for your help. Now this is not the first time, it happened a numerous of time before. You are also hurt or maybe even upset  cause this person didn’t listen to what you were saying. Though the question still remains, “what would you do, what should I do, what does the word say” etc.. What will your answer be? Sometimes it better to keep silent and pray for a person than to spend hours of counsel/advice. By praying you are also helping the person, cause they need clarity to see and hear from God for themselves.

Silence !!

pearls before swine

Matthew 7:6 “Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.”

Sometimes you can feel exhausted, drained spiritually and without a clue were it is coming from. Research the ground where you’ve been investing. Is it worth the time?

Be blessed.

Rise above


God bless you,

Today I’m writing about a matter that’s been addressed to me by the saints of God. The building of gathering is not the church, as different as we are and as unique as we were created, together we form the church. When something happens to you and you don’t like it pray about it, be the change and rise above it.

Examples: whenever there is a conflict (of interest) I keep calm, I pray and I ask God to help me. Don’t judge sometimes I get addressed in a certain way, that other people question themselves why do I accept that. (with attitude or a poor language) And as in my turn I don’t reply in the same way, I keep calm and address the issue as the bible puts it with peace, gentleness and self-control Galatians 5:22 This doesn’t mean I don’t get angry but I don’t act out of anger I pray that God’s power and Holy Spirit can change the situations and my feelings that I have at the time. By saying this whenever people approach you in a certain way it does not have anything to do with you but everything to do with the condition of the other party involved. 

When feelings come up you need to analyse is this coming from God or is this coming from my own human flesh and desires. Peoples actions can affect you but it can’t separate you from God’s love. In some experiences you can choose to see to good perspective or the bad (I choose to see the good). If you focus on the bad only bad decision and actions will proceed. I quoted a while ago, “People see faults and flaws in others whenever they become a threat to their own life”. 

galatians 1;10.jpg

There is no reason in church that can stop me from going to church, lets say:

  • If people don’t like you, be happy you are different, not everybody has to like you, as it is for you love them with the love of God don’t be move by the fact that they don’t like you.
  • If people have a poor way to speak to you, don’t be moved by their action or address in the same way, rise above and address it with peace, love, kindness and self-control.
  • If you feel used by others, don’t worry, God will see your effort He will reward you for your work, as it is for you see the matter that you are called to serve others. You are doing good by God.
  • In everything you do be humble, don’t be moved by people, be guided by the Holy Spirit. None of those mentioned things above are a reason to leave the church. You need to be the example. You need to be the light. God will reveal everything in His proper time. Whenever you’ve been wronged, forgive each other and keep moving forward. Don’t spin backwards and hold grudges.

The bible says in 2 Corinthians 4:8-11: We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair;persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. 10 We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. 11 For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body. 

This means in order for people to see Christ through you, you need to pay the price. You will experience things, but don’t harden your heart. Pray and let God reveal His plan and purpose for you in the matter. Opinion of others can not cause you to stop doing what God has called you to do. Keep pressing, rise above everything that is holding you back.

I pray that God’s power and Holy Spirit will change and reveal to you the reason why you are experiencing these things. God is ready for your next level are you?

Be blessed.

Church is not a trend!


God bless you, last week I didn’t write to you cause I was in a deal with God where He was sharing His heart with me and I didn’t want to write to you until I got everything I need to write you about. I will jump right to it. I have to give you the heads up that it may probably get ugly but in obedience towards God I will write it anyways. Main scripture Psalms 84 (I will quote some other Psalms scriptures)

Here is the deal; Church is not a trend. It is not all about getting dressed, having your hair done so you can come to a fashion show to see who is better clothed or what car one is driving in. Church is about surrendering our ego and will and submitting to the plan and purpose of God!!

Praise

Church isn’t an convention centre where big events take place. There is no time to think whether you feel like coming to church or not. You need and want to be in church, beside needing to be there you need and want to be involved in God’s business. Not only you come because you need something from but you come cause you are in need of God. You realise that without Him you wouldn’t made it this far. If it was not been for God where would you be today. Serving God isn’t a burden it’s not a obligation you have the free will to choose to serve Him, You serve God cause you want it and is your deepest desire that He get all the glory and honour that belongs to Him.

Church isn’t a theatre where you come and you need to be still cause the show is running. It is a place where you come to give God praise and glory for all that He has done. Sunday is all about God and giving Him the glory. You have the whole week to ask for things, Sunday is a day of thanksgiving and to give back unto Him. He says come into my courts with thanksgiving in your heart. If you don’t want to praise, He don’t need you, He can make the stones to so. But He says let everything that has breath praise the Lord Psalms 150:6. So when you come to church nobody needs to say to praise Him. There needs to be rivers of living water that will flow from within you, cause you believe in Him. Nobody needs to tell you clap your hands and give Him a shout of praise, isn’t that why you came to give Him all that He deserves.

Prayer

It is so that if you need prayer the elders will pray for you but when it is prayer time in the sanctuary it cannot be so that you are to weary that you can’t uplift a prayer. The bible says pray without ceasing. Don’t get tired of praying. Your problems are not bigger than God. Every tongue needs to confess that He is God and every knee shall bow before Him. You see when you confess God out loud, you are letting the devil and your situation know that what seems impossible for you is possible for God. You are letting the devil and your situation know, that If God is on your side no one can stop you of glorifying and praising His name. There is no other name than the Name of Jesus. Stop looking around and wasting time and start proclaiming things over you life, your family, your church…

Start thanking God for His grace, mercy His everlasting love, for the blessings that he gave unto you. Pray for the needy, bless one and other. Let everything you do it’s out of love. Cause you can do good but if the love of and for God don’t habit in you it’s in vain.

Church is not a playing ground. When it comes to God and His business things are serious we need to help build the Kingdom, make leaders, winning souls. It can’t be so that we come in and out the church and still be acting as babies. We need to grow spiritually and be mature in the things of God. We cannot keep doing the same stuff we used to do. You need to be the light and salt of the earth. Make a difference. Start at home.

Psalms 84

If you take the first verse; “How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord Almighty!” David wasn’t burdened at all to be in the house of the Lord. He loved to be there, He wanted to be there. He said; “How lovely..” can you say it is lovely to be in the house of the Lord. Or are you so consumed by your own agenda that if it not fit you will skip a sunday?

2 My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lordmy heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.” This is a deep longing for God. He is thirsty for more of God. He is in need of God. He is not the because he needs something of God, but because he is in need of the living God.

3 Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young— a place near your altar, Lord Almighty, my King and my God.” You see if God can take care of the birds, how much more can He do for you, aren’t you more important?

4 Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they are ever praising you.” You are blessed when you seek God, You are blessed when you praise Him for ever. Proclaiming that He is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. The everlasting God, the Creator of heaven and earth and all that is within.

Blessed are those whose strength is in you, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.”  You are blessed when you recognise that is not you but God through you. His strength has kept you this far and is keeping you going. You are blessed when you keep His word in your heart. Whatever you obstacle, situation, period you may find yourself in, His strength and word is keeping you on the move.

6. As they pass through the Valley of Baka, they make it a place of springs; the autumn rains also cover it with pools.” Listen problems doesn’t last for ever. Those who sow with tears will reap with joy. For joy comes in the morning. (Valley of Baka means valley of tears)

7. They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion.” While you keep moving forward on the path God has put you on, battling whatever life throws at you, you will see His mighty hands that moves you from strength to strength. It is His power that you kept for His glory.

8. Hear my prayer, Lord God Almighty; listen to me, God of Jacob.” And when you pray He will listen cause you are following His directions. Do not harden your heart when the word of the Lord comes to you. Cause it is out of love that He rebukes you.

9. Look on our shield,[e] O God; look with favor on your anointed one.”  God’s shield you, He protects you and you will find favor in His sight just as David. You are anointed by Him. He has anointed you and your cup will fill and run over. There is an overflow in the Spirit.

10. Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere;
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.” It is better to be all the days of your life in the house of the Lord than to be with foolish people who mocker God. David would rather be a doorkeeper than to be elsewhere. The house of the Lord where His presence and power habits.

11. For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.”  God is your shield, He is your glory and he will not withhold good things from those who walk in integrity.

12. Lord Almighty, blessed is the one who trusts in you.” If you only trust that God is for you and nobody can be against you, you will be blessed. (Psalms 40:4, Jeremiah 17:7-8, Psalms 5:11-12, Psalms 125:1-2)

I know todays writing was long but it is what the Lord has pressed on my heart. My prayer is that it will fall into good grounds and may find roots and grow in you. Be blessed.

With love,

The Lord remembers you


Hey there, Gods blessing be upon you. Today I just want to share  the thought that even when people try to make you feel bad about a situation/decision, they are actually helping you get stronger and to reach higher. You need the envious people in life, they serve as a push to get you where God wants you to be. They help maximize your potentials, to reach higher and to dig deeper.

You may ask; why are people envious? You may even think “I don’t have nothing they may already have!” But again this is a lie. You have the love of God and is grace that is sufficient for you. This causes people to see you as a thread. The scripture for today is based on Peninnah and Hannah, the two wives of Elkanah (1 Samuel 1) The second scripture is Psalms 126 5-6.

Today I’m not focussing on Samuel but on the rival that is going on between these two woman. You see in text you can read that Peninnah was to one able to give Elkanah sons and daughters. Hannah on the other hand her womb was closed by the Lord. She couldn’t have childeren, she was infertile. But because of this Elkanah knew this and loved Hannah very much he would give Hannah a double portion. (1 Samuel 1:5).

Now this is something that intimidated Peninnah, she knew and saw how Elkanah cared for  Hannah, how he loved her. And the fact that se couldn’t have childeren and that her womb was closed was a strong arrow to use against Hannah, to try to breakin’ her down. So Peninnah starts reviling  Hannah and this goes one for years. She provoked Hannah in order to irritate her. You see know a days people will get in fights. They get jealous of what others have that they don’t but Hannah had a lot amount of courage, class, integrity and dignity. This caused her pain, but the pain caused her to weep in-front of the Lord. People now a days will rival on social media, they even use songs to get back at each other. What Hannah teaches is to not lower your standards, it’s not worthy and doesn’t accomplish anything. Even though it hurt. (1 Samuel 1: 7-8)

THE_LORD_WILL_REMEMBER_YOU.jpg

Hannah was fasting and praying even though in the text saids that she wouldn’t eat. After the meal she stood up and went to the Lord’s house. After all these years I understand she had enough, I can understand her tears, she was tired of being provoked. Hannah was in her deep anguish, Hannah prayed, Hannah wept bitterly (heartbroken and downhearted), Hannah was in misery but then Hannah makes a vow. (1 Samuel 9-11) “If you consider me a son I will give him back to you all the days of His life, and no razor will be used on his head”. And Hannah kept on praying she was even misunderstood by Eli he thought she was drunk cause she was praying in her heart and her lips were moving without any voice coming out her mouth. (1 Samuel 1:12-16)

You see many times we vow before the Lord and then when we get what we wanted and then we forget the promise we made God and then you find out that it no longer the way planned. Example you ask God for a child, you get the child but you forget you promised God that  you will give him back and this child causes you pain, he his wandering the world, hanging out with bad crowds..

You ask God for a job and promise to give back what you earn. But then when you have the job you forget the promise and just to find out that your short on money, you can’t even remember where and when you spend the money. Maybe it is not going that well at the job anymore and you decide to leave or you’ve been fired, left without a source of income..

The blessing is complete and you may find joy in it when you stand on your promise. Let your yes, be yes…

See Hannah had heart for God even though she was not pregnant yet.. she still worshiped before the Lord. Then the went back to their home at Ramah and Elkanah made love to his wife Hannah and The Lord Remembered Her. In the course of time she became pregnant and gave birth to a son and calls him Samuel, saying, “Because I asked the Lord for him”. (1 Samuel 17 – 19) The Lord remembered her. The Lord blessed her with a child. The Lord can open your womb for new talents that helps you towards your destiny, He’s able to impregnate you with purpose.

Psalms 126: 5-6

Those who sow with tears
    will reap with songs of joy.
Those who go out weeping,
    carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs of joy,
    carrying sheaves with them

Hannah was a woman of her word, so she kept her word and dedicates Samuel to the Lord (1 Samuel 21- 28) whom God will use later on for great things. (following chapters)

Even when people cause you pain, they are helping you get where you need to be. God his purpose his being put inside of you. Every pain you feel and every tear you dropped before God, He will remember them all. What He has in store for you that love Him nobody can comprehend.

Be blessed.

Rebuilding is a process


 

Hey there today I’m writing you from the thought that sometimes we find ourself connected the wrong people and in that moment you don’t see what the damage is. The text is based on Nehemiah 2 en 1 Peter 5:8

There need to be breakage before healing. Nothing is rebuild overnight. When God leaves you in the fire is because that’s the only way you can see God. When you can shout in the furnace you can shout when you get out. God provides revelation in the situation. Maybe the prayer your praying doesn’t need to be change my situation but give me revelation.

The most vulnerable time in ones life is when you are tired and gave everything away. the devil has time to wait on a opportunity to sneak in and if you are off guard it will bring you down. Small gesture can bring down great people. When you are tired everybody that pretend to listen will do. everybody that says anything nice to you, you will be attracted to. Bad company corrupts good character. Bad company on a long term will affect your health, your finance and your strength. It will cause you to feel as if you are in the lowest moment of your life.)non deserving of God’s love, this is a lie of the devil)  It’s the feeling like hanging on a cord without getting any air, it is the feeling of being scared that the cord will break and cause a separation between you and God.That is why we need to be alert and of sober mind. cause the enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8.

lion.jpg

Sometimes the things that seems to be of no harm will be harmful.  Sometimes we overestimate or strength just to find out that the place we are in we are selling ourself short. We need to back off and seek God.

As a person that has the calling of leadership on your life and you are functioning as leader you can not let everybody in your space. Some people will take from you without putting it back.(strength, energy , ideas…) They suck the energy out of you. they bring you down for Satan’s pleasure. Satan uses people to get what he wants. He will laugh at you in your down moment. When he thinks you don’t have the strength to get up he will find peace. But as soon as you plan to start rebuilding all hell is going to break loose. He will use strategies to bring you down. (he will ridicule you, intimidate you, scare you.. but satan’s plans are not unknown for those who pray and seek God)

  1. A leader must spend a lot of time alone. (Neh. 2:11) Sometimes you have to go apart before you fall apart. You have to unload before you overload. When you are alone you can hear from God. In your solitude you can get a plan and power.
  2. A leader takes the time to gather the necessary information/facts (Neh. 2:13). If you don’t have the facts you will make the wrong decision based only on your feelings.
  3. A leader understand the devil plan and the divine plan is based on details. If you are not a detail-oriented you will mess your life up. A leader pays attention to the details but is not bogged down in the details. You cannot rebuild while micromanaging everything and everybody.
  4. A leader understand that timing and words are important. (Neh. 2:16) Sharing information to soon gives people the time to come up with reasons why your idea won’t work. Be careful who you trust your good stuff too. Have a strategy. The devil sure as hell will have one.
  5. A leader must always focus on the big picture. 2:15
  6. A good leader knows how to motivate people
  7. A good leader knows when to confront the enemy.

Testimony:

While I was going through my now cancelled divorce procedure, I was down, this action of mine caused me a lot of stress I was loosing weight. It caused me my energy. In that time I connected with a person who I confided somethings cause my emotion were all over the place and you could read them of my face. Without noticing this person was trying to pretend to care by saying nice things like I understand, if you need to talk I’m here. Sooner than I expected I was constantly messaging on whats-app. Without knowing I was being carried away. I was feeling tired the whole time, couldn’t give anyone no motivational word, my problems were growing bigger. The demand and the feeling of obligation towards the wrong person began to grow. It was like this person couldn’t be missed in my life.. But the one Person I couldn’t be separated from was the love of God. So I decided that whatever that I can get from God I would take, if it is the same song I will praise Him with, if it is same sentence “Help me Lord” I would say. In my silence I would here Him over and over “Stop talking, Stop exposing yourself, don’t look back” Than one day when I had enough of fighting my own will vs. God’s will, after a service on sunday I messaged this person and I said you are withholding me from God, I choose no longer to give you my time. I’m choosing God over you. I have know broken that line of connection that was causing frequency damage. The truth to be told after this action I missed talking to this person it was as if this person has gotten under my skin. This person became to important in my life just to find out that I was blinded and of guard. Know that I’m aware of this I thank God that he brought me out of the mess I’ve created for myself. I’m free, not looking back. I’m going forward with Jesus in front of me behind me and next to me.

Be blessed,

Blessings & Friends..


God bless you,

This morning (day) I want to write you about the reality that we sometimes encounter ourself in. The fact that you ask God to bless someone and the fact you wish them all the best in every area of their life and than when God does so it seems like you are getting mad about the fact that God blessed the brother or the sister but you have been left out. Suddenly you don’t know how to treat them right and with respect because all your mind is focused on is the blessing they just got. (I’m really writing to someone) Sometimes you have friends that wishes you all the best and when God takes you to another level they suddenly cannot handle you anymore. This life everyone has to live individually, everybody grows individually, salvation is individually, so you cannot expect us to be on the same level constantly. It is not a competition, because in every stage there is something to learn a test to pass.

Sometimes you don’t even realise what struggles and demons someone had to fight before getting where they are in life today. The only thing you think is God I’ve been living good, obedient, I’ve been doing everything according the scripture but still you blessed them instead of me. In the story of the prodigal son at some point the oldest son said to his father all this time i’ve been working hard for you, i’ve been on your side and now this son of yours comes home he spend all his money on whores and you go out and throw him a feast? The father replied to him; “31-32 “His father said, ‘Son, you don’t understand. You’re with me all the time, and everything that is mine is yours—but this is a wonderful time, and we had to celebrate. This brother of yours was dead, and he’s alive! He was lost, and he’s found!’” (Luke 11:31-32) In this story you can see that this youngest son struggled with life after he wasted all his money and than come to the realisation that if I work for my father I may have food to eat at the end of the day.

realness

Testimony: I was away for some time handling some things that had to be dealt with. It required from that often I was on the road to have this done in orde for me to get home. One Sunday I get a message that a old fried heard that I was in town but that she didn’t see me, but when she heard I’m on the road with someone else who was helping me at the time with all of these business I had on y plate she got jealous. This friend is someone that I hadn’t spoke with in years we used to be close but know we are on another scale of friendship. I told her that I was not on vacation and that I was in town for business and that time is short for me to visit all these people that expect me to come by. I know that in the time I was off that God hands and favor went before me, doors were opening in such a way that you could see difference, you could have seen God’s glory, so I know what it was what she felt. The point here is we are to caught up to see how others are doing life and forgetting to focus on or own and than blessings come and you aren’t ready for it.

This is what I want to close with its a scripture in 1 Corinthians 13:1-7

“If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate. If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing.3-7 If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.

This is what the bible says love thy neighbour as you love yourself. If you can’t love them you have to self search the intentions of thine heart. Check your limit of love before going of blessing everybody and you don’t mean them well to get blessed by the abundance of God.

You may be mad at me for writing this but I want you to realise it and stop looking at life as if someone stole something from you. You have to be openhearted, real in love in order for God to bless you fully.

Be blessed.

With loving regards,

S.Domitilia

Celebrating our own…


God bless you,

Today it’s gonna be a exhortation but at the same time a encouragement. This is gonna be written in the perspective of leaders so we as church members can realise that we can do more just by saying Thank You. First of all thank you for responding on the call of God upon your life and being obedient towards Him. Thank you for leading us into praise and worship, thank you for your life coaching, thank you for your encouragement, thank you for all these successful events you organised, thank you for just being you and so alive and there is a lot more to be thankful for. It is better to give someone a “wauw” “wow” moment (leave someone astonished/amazed) than to be amazed yourself every time. You see even when you are the one giving one of these moments away to someone you will be astonished and amazed by there reaction. I guess blessed by their reaction.

You can’t complain about nothing being done; if you never take time to say thank you for what is been done. Sometimes we go to church forgetting that these leaders, pastors and deacons have their own life. They are running two operations at the same time. God made them able to multitask and many times they are the ones that struggle the most at some point because they are pouring and pouring over and over without getting a thank you. They’ve been taken for granted. We almost think this is a regular thing so we don’t say thank you and the reality is they need it to. God tells us to be grateful but instead we are acting out. (ungrateful) They need to hear it thank you and I appreciate you.

1 Thessalonians 5:12-13 NIV

12 Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to acknowledge those who work hard among you, who care for you in the Lord and who admonish you. 13 Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other.

thank you

Not only leaders, pastors and deacons need to hear it. But everyone that is been pouring and helping you through your struggles and hard times. Even when everything is ok and someone does something unexpected you need to say thank you. It seems hard now a day to tell someone thank you I’m glad you are here, I appreciate you and I cherish your life.

I believe loving a person start with a thank you. When you say thank you value them, you appreciate them for what they do and who they are. Next level after appreciation is seeing the good in them and weighing it over the bad things, you can celebrate their life, you even begin to miss them when they are in their absent.

You see Paul was thankful for us in 2 Thessalonians 2:13
13 But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters loved by the Lord, because God chose you as firstfruits to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth.

I’ll give you two more scriptures:

1 Corinthians 15:58 

58 Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord,because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

1 Thessalonians 1:3

We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Just be thankful and let someone know you are thankful for them. Celebrate them, cherish their life and cover them in prayer.

Be blessed.

With loving regards,

S.Domitilia

PS: After this reading you may think less or even think of unfollowing me but you know it  doesn’t matter. I’m obedient the Holy Spirit and if is the direction and kind of message I have to write I’ll write it.

Celebrate life..


God bless you,

Today I want to encourage you to celebrate life, celebrate each moment with worship in your heart. Giving thanks for everything. Don’t take any day for granted. This day was not promised to you, but God out of His mercy and grace decided to give you one more day to draw closer to Him. If your lost, you can still find yourself in God. If your spiritual dead, God can make you live again. Today God is telling you this: “you are always with me, and everything I have is yours. 32 But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’” Keep trusting God to bring back your daughter and sons home.. Don’t give up on them.. Whoever your trusting God with, so that they can come to God.. Keep trusting, keep praying, keep showing them love.. This is what it is all about.

Celebrate the fact that you are found and that you live, but don’t only celebrate and be glad God for making you alive and you can be found… But also thank Him for the life for your brothers and sisters…

Bible tells us the story of the prodigal son.. the son who took what was his, he had the rights over it..He took this money and moved out..He spend all of it.. Find him self left with nothing, had to ate with the swines. But than he took courage, he thought it over and decided to go back home.. And his father received him with open arms and had thrown him a party.. Just like this our Heavenly Father will receive you, all that guilt and shame he will cover with His loving arms embracing you. Heaven will thrown you a party.. There will be angels singing because you came home.. Come back home!

Luke 15;11-32

 

Bible Luke 15:11-32 NIV

The Parable of the Lost Son

11 Jesus continued: “There was a man who had two sons. 12 The younger one said to his father, ‘Father, give me my share of the estate.’ So he divided his property between them.

13 “Not long after that, the younger son got together all he had, set off for a distant country and there squandered his wealth in wild living. 14 After he had spent everything, there was a severe famine in that whole country, and he began to be in need. 15 So he went and hired himself out to a citizen of that country, who sent him to his fields to feed pigs. 16 He longed to fill his stomach with the pods that the pigs were eating, but no one gave him anything.

17 “When he came to his senses, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have food to spare, and here I am starving to death! 18 I will set out and go back to my father and say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. 19 I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired servants.’ 20 So he got up and went to his father.

“But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.

21 “The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’

22 “But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. 23 Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate.24 For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate.

25 “Meanwhile, the older son was in the field. When he came near the house, he heard music and dancing. 26 So he called one of the servants and asked him what was going on. 27 ‘Your brother has come,’ he replied, ‘and your father has killed the fattened calf because he has him back safe and sound.’

28 “The older brother became angry and refused to go in. So his father went out and pleaded with him. 29 But he answered his father, ‘Look! All these years I’ve been slaving for you and never disobeyed your orders. Yet you never gave me even a young goat so I could celebrate with my friends. 30 But when this son of yours who has squandered your property with prostitutes comes home, you kill the fattened calf for him!’

31 “‘My son,’ the father said, ‘you are always with me, and everything I have is yours. 32 But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’”

God is telling you that He will always be with you and that everything He has is yours. He is guarantee you that whatever is death will live again and whatever is lost will be found again!

Be blessed.

Love – Marriage day 5


God bless you,

Today is the last day of these series “Love – Marriage”. As married couple you united as two singles (complete and whole as individual people) and become one. How to make purpose work. Both of you have a calling. As we know God created Adam, he had the leading role. He had to name all the living and take care of the Eden. Now God find that it is no good that Adam will be alone so He created Eve.

So Adam has his own purpose when God created him. When God created Eve He had created Adam a helper. (Genesis 2:18)  So as woman not only we are under the care (submission) of the man but we have to help. (Colossians 3:18-19) When I say help I mean, when he needs you to do something for him naturally (household, fulfil his desires or active in the ministry) and in the spiritually (prayer, encourage…) you have to do so.

My husband is called to be a Pastor but is currently active in ministering with the Praise and worship team. He is a musician (pianist). So I have to cover him constantly with prayer, because the attacks will come. When he has to perform/minister somewhere I have to be alert that he is being exposed and that all kind of people can approach him for all kind of personal reasons and not all those reasons are Godly intended. So he needs prayer constantly. As musician you need a righthand or someone that does take care of the sound. He needs me so he is learning me to do the sound. I’m doing sound because it is my thing but he needs me at it, so I’m willing to learn that.

Before every writing and after every writing for these series of “Love – Marriage” I consulted him, because I’m aware that I’m exposing us. So I don’t do anything without consulting he has to know and approve of the situation.

Romans 12:1-2 tells us that we have to be transformed in our thinking. As pagans we think I don’t need permission for doing anything. I will do as it pleases my own desires. Example look at Eve. 1 Timothy 2:14 it says “14 And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner”

As wife you have to respect your husband. So if he is the man of the house and the wife is submitted than respect has to follow otherwise you cannot speak of submission and honouring him in the position God put him. (Ephesians 5:31-33)

Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. (Romans 12:10)
As wife honor your husband so he feels that he is respected.

I know these writing are mostly dedicated to the woman, but as woman we are stubborn. Sometimes we think why should I, but this is the will of God. I didn’t say loose your voice, communication is a priority.

Love day 5

 

Remember: “12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man;[b] she must be quiet.” 1 Timothy 2:12

Be blessed. It’s my prayer that God will bring the two of you closer to each other. That their will be communication and understanding. That your thinking will be transformed and be the helper God created you to be.

With loving regards,

S.Domitilia

PS: It was an honor for me to do this. God trusted me with something big and I’m glad to have answer to His call.

If you have any petition (request) for some other topic of series comment and let me know I’ll be working on it. 😉
