A grateful heart

Happy Thanksgiving!

Ponder on the good things that happened this year than the bad things that happened,  and be thankful to God for His goodness. 

It is good to praise the Lord. It is good to gaze upon His majesty, to proclaim His love in the morning, and His faithfulness at night.
Oh, it is good to worship and praise the Lord.

Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 NLT

Praise the Lord ! Give thanks to the Lord , for he is good! His faithful love endures forever.
Psalms 106:1 NLT

Give thanks to the Lord , for he is good! His faithful love endures forever. Has the Lord redeemed you? Then speak out! Tell others he has redeemed you from your enemies.
Psalms 107:1‭-‬2 NLT

Give thanks to the Lord , for he is good! His faithful love endures forever.
Psalms 118:1 NLT

And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.
Colossians 3:15 NLT

Signs that you are drifting away

The following are the critical signs that you are drifting away. 

— when you develop indifferent attitude to the things you love passionately before.

— when you reduce the amount of time you spend on the things you love to do.

— when other people, like your mentor, warns you but you refuse to listen. 

— when there are clear signs that you have abandoned the right lane, yet you insist on your desire.

— when suddenly you fall in love with things that you hate or dislike before.

— when you deliberately choose to do the despicable despite your conscience saying no to such acts.

— when you disobey your devoted calling.

–when you don’t share your secrets with your loved ones as you used to because your thoughts are stained with unpleasant dirt. 

–when you won’t let go of pride and you are full of yourself. 

— when you suddenly begin to say “it doesn’t matter” to things that usually matter before. 

— when you don’t seek counsel. 

— when you seek counsel but don’t follow it.

— when you seek counsel and follow it but don’t ask for direction when confused. 

— when you say you have lost your interest and you have no passion anymore.

Like a gazelle, run and cry for help before your life falls apart like a pack of cards…or like “things fall apart”.

It’s a marathon race

Life is like a marathon race.

Then the Lord said to me, “Write my answer plainly on tablets, so that a runner can carry the correct message to others. This vision is for a future time. It describes the end, and it will be fulfilled. If it seems slow in coming, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed.
Habakkuk 2:2‭-‬3 NLT
You have to keep running until you reach the finish line.

The Christian life is a journey. You keep running each day till the end of time. 

There are lots of side attractions on the way. Steadfastness will help you reach your ultimate goal and receive the crown.

No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.
Philippians 3:13‭-‬14 NLT

Distractions will make you lose your purpose. Even though you finish the race, you may not win the race, but your goal is to win. So, remain focus and steadfast so you can win the race.

The Oppressed and the Oppressor

“Can the prey be taken from the mighty, or the captives of a tyrant be rescued?”

The oppressor will always hold on to the oppressed.

Anything or anyone that places a burden on you is an oppressor.

The master usually doesn’t want the servant to go.

If a king has its way would prefer to be king forever (dictatorship).
You will need to fight hard to rescue the prey (victim) from the warrior.
The warrior usually will not let go of his spoil (victim).

To be free, the oppressed must have a ransom, a kinsman, or fight to the end.
