Set priorities right! ♥

🌾There was a time, landline united the family.
🌾Today with a mobile in every hand it's turned family members strangers under the same roof!
🌾This world has so many things to keep our attention away from God and family and we get carried away so easily.
🌾There are games on the mobile that keeps many looking at their mobile for hours and they fail to hear the sounds around.
🌾The new gadgets are to help us ease our work and time  but still it ends up robbing our time. We sit staring at our mobiles, TV that we miss see the pain, hear the laughter of a loved one in the home.
🌾We have endless online conversations with friends online (many who we haven't really seen or know) but no time to talk to God, read His Word, find out what is happening in the home and in our loved one's life!
🏵🌿Let us keep priorities right.
🌾This life is God's gift, how often do we stop by to talk to Him, thank Him? 
🌾Do we take time to sit with family, talk, pray together?
🌾God wants us to work from a place of rest, enjoy time with family and real friends, go out for holidays and be refreshed!.
 🌾God has graciously added moments, let us value it and not waste it!
David writes, "His Praise shall continuously be on my lips."
Praise Him at all times for all things!
🌾On the final hour when we stand before God, so many things we did to kill time, gratify us will mean nothing.
🌾What if we do not wake up to see another day?
Let us set things right and live a life that pleases God and give time for family!
God bless,
Julia 🌸🍃

Life a fast runner...

🌷Life a fast runner, our next breath not guaranteed! Tomorrow we may just be a memory.
🌷Let us not put off for tomorrow what we need to do today.
🌿A job not done,
🌿putting off visit to see an ailing loved one,
🌿a missed call form someone on the edge we did not call back or failed checking on a loved one,
🌿 a prayer not whispered,
🌿a quote or application not sent out may cost us or someone a lot.
🌷A job undone, a mail/note not send, a call not made, may cost us a deal, a job, a miracle, a loved one or just anything important!
🌷Opportunities sure always don't wait for us...
No wonder God's Word says..
🌿🌸 Hebrews 3:15 “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion.”🌿🌸
Good Night,
Julia 🌺🌿

Train up a child

Training up kids take effort but results rewarding! 
God's Word says in
🌿🌺 Proverbs 22:6, "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it."
🌷Training up sure takes a lot of effort and prayers. It is not that if we train them up in the right path, they will never leave it or stray away from it. But when we fill their heart with the right stuff, the Word of God, sound doctrine, good and wise advice, we can pray they will remember it and get back on track if they stay away.
🌷As Godly parents we can prepare the soil, sow the seed and pray God will grow the seed. We can show them, teach them but cannot force them.
🌷May our children be taught to value their family and time spend with family from when they are small.
🌷 May our children be taught to respect elders at home so that they will respect elders outside. 
🌿🌺Leviticus 19:32 ‘You shall rise before the gray headed and honor the presence of an old man, and fear your God: I am the Lord.
🌷May our children not be known for the degrees they hold or for the high profile job they are in but may they be known their love for God, their joy, their cheerfulness, their compassion, sympathy, gratitude, helpful nature!
🌷Let them be know and seen to be striving to conform with God's will and not the pattern of this world.
🌷Our children are God's gift to us, may God bless them.

Waiting for a life partner?

Waiting for a life partner?
🌿🌼It's impossible to find some one perfect but sure can find one who trusts God in midst of his/her imperfections. 
🌿🌼Pray for a person who is after God's own heart, who will change your life for the better and not just your relationship status.
🌿🌼A person who cares, is concerned, loving, doesn't talk about your weakness to others but praise you.
🌿🌼 Above a take time to pray with and for you, reads the Word of God with you.
God being the centre of a relationships makes all the difference!
Blessed day,
Julia 🌸🌿

Before it is too late..

🌿🌺 Do not wait until too late. Keep checking on family and loved ones stranded far away due to this lock-down.
Sometimes just praying with them, few words of encouragement or asking them how they are doing is all they need to hear. 
Sometimes our loved ones may just wait to hear our voice.
Before too late, keep reaching out in love.
🌿🌺Sometimes vital and important relationships take a back seat because of our busy schedule, career, ministry, or other activities that keep us busy!
🌿🌺Some of our elderly, grand-dads, grand-moms, are forgotten lying all alone just longing to hear few words of love.
When we remember people we had forgotten or those we left behind and turn back to say how much they mean to us, they may be gone never to return and you may never be able to see them again,
🌿🌺So before it's too late we need to tell our loved ones how much we love and care for them.
Let us treasure every vital and important relationships in our lives.

A Poem I read:
If you have a tender message or a loving word to say,
Do not wait till you forget it, whisper it today,
The tender word unspoken,
The letter never sent,
The long forgotten messages,
 The wealth of love unspent,
For these some hearts are breaking.
For these some loved ones cry.
So show them you care for them before it's too late.
Don't strew me with roses after I'm dead.
When Death claims the light of my brow, No flowers of life will cheer me. 
Instead you may give me my roses now!

Family gatherings then and now!

Family gatherings in the past and present!
In the past young, the elderly and every family member in our lives were held in high esteem. Though there were no modern gadgets, they had lots of family times together. There was more face to face interactions. 
But the present has more nuclear families, modern gadgets and they are so busy that many families have no time to spend together in fellowship, prayer etc.
Adam and Eve lived in a home called the 'Garden of Eden'. God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it" (Genesis 1:28). Abba Father enjoyed a daily fellowship with Adam and Eve; He loved to walk and talk with them. God is the beginner of marriage, children, family and home and He is the Restorer of all things!
