Love of many will grow cold....


Wonder why love in many vital relationships is growing cold?
Wonder why there is coldness in relationships between parents and children, husband and wife, some do not seem to know who their close relative are.
Cyber world has opened door to online relationships and friendships which have in some cases taken over real, vital relationship! 
The Bible says in 
 Matthew 24:12 “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.”
But again our Lord commanded in 
John 15:17, "This is my command: Love each other."
If we are sure of our destiny in Christ let our hearts and thoughts are to be filled with His love, peace and truth and we will be known we are disciples of Jesus Christ by our love for each other.
Our Lord Jesus Christ said in...
John 13:35 "By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
May His love fill our hearts and thoughts,
May God revive and renew ever vital relationship that has turned cold.

Turning of Father's heart to the Children


When Satan has done a lot to mess and destroy father's relationship with children, God takes pain to reveal His Father heart to us through His Son Yeshua and turn back hearts of fathers to children and children to fathers.
Malachi 4:5-6 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: (6) And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse. (KJV)
What satan separates Abba Father unites!
The world teaches to hate, abandon, forsake but God teaches to love, take care, and not to forsake for our God Himself will not leave or forsake us!
Deuteronomy 31:6 "Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”
What a blessed promise to hold on!
Be blessed,
Julia

Grandchildren are a crown to the aged


Grandchildren are a crown to the aged
A home that has grandparents is truly blessed!
God's Word says that Grandchildren are a crown to the aged and parents pride of the children!
"Children’s children(grandchildren) are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children." (Proverbs 17:6)
A grandmother's special calling is to pray & to be a fellow worker in the battle in which her children or her grandchildren are engaged."- Elisabeth Elliott
In Biblical times and in the past, elders were the most revered members of a family.
In this age where people prefer nuclear family unit, both parents working, parents prefer their kids to be looked after by maids and kids learn more from the TV and Internet. 
But we live in an age when parents and grandparents are suddenly strangers as the world teaches us that parents and grandparents are a burden and is better they are left alone and not be a part of our family as we need our personal space etc.

 Wilford James writes,

 Quote  " However, a complete change has taken place when it comes to the elderly people and the place the hold in today’s society. They are no longer involved in the rearing of their grandchildren and have been replaced by daycare centers, the internet, televisions and videos games.
The sense of family unity, love of community, respect and care for our fellow man instilled in children by their grandparents has all been lost in the absence of these valuable sources of knowledge and experience.

The elderly folks in today’s society are treated more like old furniture than part of a family. They are dusted off every so often and taken out of the house for a trip to the mall or a fast food restaurant; or they are simple placed in convalescent homes where they spend the rest of their life lonely and forgotten. < unquote

Praise God for those who still see elders as part of families and beacon of wisdom and knowledge!
Let not the modern lifestyle, 'nuclear family' system influence and overtake 'Biblical values' and standards. #life #Biblical

Jacob's journey back to his father's House


Let us allow the Spirit Of Truth to guide us!
"However when the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all truth and he will show you things to come."
 John 16:13-14 "He will teach us all things"(John 14:26)
When Satan has done a lot to mess and destroy father's relationship with children, God takes pain to reveal His Father heart to us through His Son Yeshua and turn back hearts of fathers to children and children to fathers.
Malachi 4:5-6 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: (6) And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse. (KJV)

What satan separates Abba Father unites!
We can learn valuable lessons from studying the life of Biblical personalities and other stories from the Bible.
We know important was the Father and His House to Jesus but how did men of God in the Bible see their father's home what did their home mean to them?
John 14: 2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
But what about other men in the Bible and their relation to their father's house?
We can learn valuable lessons from studying the life of Biblical personalities and other stories from the Bible.
On his way to find himself a wife Jacob made a vow.
Genesis 28: 20 Then Jacob made a vow, saying, “If God will be with me, and keep me in this way that I am going, and give me bread to eat and clothing to put on, 21 so that I come back to my father’s house in peace, then the Lord shall be my God. 22 And this stone which I have set as a pillar shall be God’s house, and of all that You give me I will surely give a tenth to You.”
And a few chapters later we see the Lord tell Jacob,
Genesis 31:3 "Then the LORD said to Jacob, "Go back to the land of your fathers and to your relatives, and I will be with you."
Jacob obeyed God and traveled toward his father’s home in Hebron. Along the way, Rachael had another son and Jacob named Benjamin but Rachael died soon after she gave birth, and Jacob buried her. 
Jacob finally arrived at his father’s home. 
Here below is a detail of Jacob's journey back to his father's home.
1. Isaac:
 After Sarah died, “And Abraham was old, and well stricken in age: and the Lord had blessed Abraham in all things” (Genesis 24:1), Abraham decides to arrange for Isaac’s marriage. So he sends his most trusted servant, his steward, to get a wife for Isaac from among his kin. Abraham makes the servant promise, he will not to take a wife for his son from among the Canaanites, and not to take Isaac back to Haran to live among Abraham’s kin.
In Genesis 24 we read how the servant finds Rebekah for Isaac. The young women (Rebekah and her maids) all ride the camels back and reach Canaan, where Isaac was living. Isaac has gone out in the field this evening and he sees the camels coming, and goes out to meet them. Rebekah sees him coming, and gets down from her camel. It might be hard to dismount in a flattering fashion in front of an important person. She asks who is coming, and the servant confirms that it is Isaac, the very one she has been brought to wed. She veils herself, to meet him. The servant tells Isaac the whole story.


Melissa Crespy, writes: "In Genesis 24:67 we get a sense of Isaac's grief over the loss of his mother, and we learn that Isaac loved Rebekah and she brought him deep comfort. Rebekah was for him everything that his mother had been for him. She was someone who loved him, and whom he could love wholeheartedly in return. She was someone he could trust, someone who would take care of him and protect him. She was a presence in his home, and indeed created that sense of home, a sanctuary, a refuge for him. Though it was not to last, and life with Rebekah would grow more complex as the years went by, at this point in Isaac's life - when he was so vulnerable and in such grief - Rebecca was a lifeline to him, bringing him many of the same comforts Sarah his mother had blessed him with."
Genesis 24:67 "Then Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah’s tent; and he took Rebekah and she became his wife, and he loved her. So Isaac was comforted after his mother’s death."
2. Jacob: 
In Genesis 28, Isaac sends his son Jacob to his Grandfather's home, to get a wife for himself, from one of his uncle's daughters. Genesis 28: 2 Arise, go to Padanaram, to the house of Bethuel thy mother's father; and take thee a wife from thence of the daughters of Laban thy mother's brother.
So, Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran(verse 10). On the way he rested at night making a pillow of stones and that night he had a dream.
Morning he called that place Bethel and made a vow.
Genesis 28: 20 And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on,21 So that I come again to my father's house in peace; then shall the Lord be my God."
Jacob did go back to his Father's house with his wives! 
Jacob Returns Home:
His journey back to his father's house can be read here (Genesis 30:25-35:29).
All together, Jacob worked for Laban for 20 years, God prospered him and he got 2 wives and then one day, God spoke to Jacob and told him to leave Paddan Aram and return to the land of his father.
Genesis 31:3 "Then the LORD said to Jacob, "Go back to the land of your fathers and to your relatives, and I will be with you."
It was a long journey back home. Jacob continued to travel toward his father’s home in Hebron. Along the way, Rachael had another son and Jacob named Benjamin. Sadly, Rachael died just after she gave birth, and Jacob buried her. Jacob finally arrived at his father’s home. Isaac lived to be 180 years old. Then Jacob and Esau buried him.
Genesis 35: 27 Then Jacob came to his father Isaac at Mamre, or Kirjath Arba (that is, Hebron), where Abraham and Isaac had dwelt.
Jacob continued to live with his sons (Genesis 38-44). 
When famine struck the land, Joseph tells his brothers to bring his dad and all their household to Egypt(Genesis 45). Joseph gave his father, brothers and their families the best portion of the land in Egypt.  Jacob and his sons were offered a home in the land of Goshen (Gen. 46). Jacob lived out his last years in Egypt with his sons until his death

God's Word is Awesome to study!

God Bless your home.....!


Hi...
The Bible says..
The Lord Blesses the home of the Righteous.
(Proverbs 3:33)
Today, I pray that God's favor and grace will be your portion. 
May the Lord's presence flood your homes and lives.
May God Bless You

"Home Is Where The Flowers Bloom"

Home is where the flowers bloom
and children love to play,
And mother's whispered lullaby
Is heard at end of day.
Home is where the Bible's read
and children learn to pray
Before they hurry off to school
and put their toys away.
Home is where you live a dream
that others make come true
Because they love you as you are
and want the best for you.
Home is where the years fly by
on wings of solid gold.
And memories are precious gems
To treasure when we're old.
Home is where the flowers bloom
although we are apart,
And we can smell the roses 
forever in our heart.

Homemaker's job surely not easy but definitely rewarding!


Life of a homemaker may not be easy as a walk on a bed of roses. As  most of our lives is spent  pressing on, believing, holding on in faith, praying, paying bills, making beds, fixing breakfast and lunch, helping kids with home work, wiping their tears, crying with them etc. 

And many hours during the day we may be all alone and may feel no one really cares. 
So much of what  homemakers go unrecognized. The beds made every morning, toilets scrubbed, every meal made, other chores around home, errands run to the market, dust, sweep, clean etc may not necessarily get noticed. 

We see that our family members take their medications, vitamins, eat the right food, or stop them from eating stuff that is not good for them ensures their good health but they may fail to see our heart of concern.

 But it is good to remind ourselves that God is with us, watching over us, so consider it all joy that we are never alone at home. Let us do all we do as unto Him and not unto man.

 Ephesians 6: 7 "Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people, 8 because you know that the Lord will reward each one for whatever good they do, whether they are slave or free."
So let us do what we do with all our heart.
 Colossians 3:23, "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,"

A homemaker has a lot of rewarding moments too! Homemaker who handles a lot of household responsibilities may not be paid for their service but it is a greatly rewarding job as it is a joy to see kids grow, being there to see them take their first step, lift them when they fall, their hug when you have a tear in your eyes and so many such priceless moments.
 And we get a lot of time to pursue our hobbies (writing/stitching/knitting/painting/gardening or whatever it may be), get time to be alone with our Lord in between our chores and can do so much more.
So "Homemakers" you are doing a great job too!
Be blessed...
A "Full time" homemaker,
Julia 

Love a "Homemakers" job!

Wikipedia describes "A homemaker" as a person whose main job is to take care of his or her own family home and children. Traditionally, the job of homemaker is done by women and the job of provider is done by men, but both men and women can be providers and homemakers."

I am not an accidental full time homemaker but loved to be one and chose to be one. 
It is not an easy job always but I wouldn't trade it for a second.
But I am also so...in awe of those who manage a career out and also is a homemaker!
God appreciates all we do as a woman, indoors or out.
"A woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her own works praise her in the gates." (Proverbs 31:31)
Homemaking is sure an honorable profession.
Every homemaker may not have a full-time or part-time maid, some may not have even a washing machine, dishwasher or microwave to assist them and make work a bit easy but still it is a job of great worth!
May God help us "Homemakers" to be strong and fit so that we can serve our own and others who visit us!
May God help us be hospitable Homemakers.
God Bless,
Julia

Training and teaching our little children


Hi..
If we show our children when they are young the right path to take and tell them about the only way of truth(John 14:6), as they grow older even if they go astray or wander away, they will know to find their way back!
What they learn as a little child they will not easily forget!
And pray at all times for them!
Proverbs 22:6 "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it."

Be blessed,
Julia

Show them you care...


Sometimes vital and important relationships take a back seat because of our career, ministry, or other activities that keep us busy!
We sometimes take people in our lives for granted.
Some of our elderly, grand-dads, grand-moms, even elderly parents 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.
Julia

A Poem I read:
BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE
****************************
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.
~Unknown~

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!

You can make a difference!

Hi.....
There are times we wonder, "What can I do to make a difference in someone's life?". 
I just want to share with you a something I read that has blessed me so...much.
Just some encouragement for WOMEN in here...
I don't know who wrote it...but it's the words that matters...
Hat's off to the one who penned this down.
Be Blessed,

YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
______________(Author: Unknown)_____________
When you look at today's world, it's hard not to feel as though it is a 'lost cause'. After all, you are only one woman, what difference can you possibly make. You can pray, of course, and ask God to change the world we live in. But I believe He looks to His hands here on earth to show that God does make a difference.

Your hands and my hands are God's hands. To many we are the only Bible they will ever read. If we are to be like Jesus, we can't be like everyone else. People must be able to see a difference in us. If they see 'God' in us, and in our actions, then they're going to want God in their lives.

I spent a lot of time feeling frustrated and helpless. This wasn't the world I grew up in. It wasn't the world I wanted. It got so bad that I didn't even want to listen to the news or even read the newspaper. The overwhelming feeling of helplessness was just too much. So, selfishly, I began to look for ways in which I could make a difference . . . even the smallest difference. And what a difference it made in my life!

Use your talent, whatever it might be, to touch another life. If you sew, make a rag doll for a homeless shelter.

If you cook, stir up a batch of your great cookies for an alzheimer's facility.

The list of things you can do is unlimited. Each one touches a life in ways you can never imagine. And while you are using your talents, your own spirits will soar and you'll feel Jesus in your heart.

Make 1 phone call to someone who needs to hear from you. Let them know you are thinking about them.

I adore greeting cards. I never leave the store with less than 5 or 6, buying them with no particular person or occasion in mind. Then I have them on hand to send(snail mail) with a handwritten note to someone needing a 'lift' or a 'touch'. (You can even remain a 'secret pal'.) Think how you felt the last time you received an unexpected card.

Tell a Bible story to a child.

Make a phone call to your local politician, let them know what you support and that 'you' do care what they are doing. Christians don't have to be silent. Speak up! You see, you aren't helpless.

Still feeling like there's nothing you can do? 

Do you realize that if each of us only did a couple of things a week for others how many lives we would touch for Jesus!

I personally want to give you my heartfelt "Thank you!".
Spread the word that we are loved unconditionally by a Father who is never too busy to talk with us, walk with us and hold us up. 
And we are His hands.

Ruth and Naomi



Hi...
Greetings...


Have been meditating on the Book of Ruth, which is a amazing story of love, obedience, commitment and dedication, trials, deliverance and freedom. Ruth (Naomi's daughter-in-law) and Naomi, both had lost their husbands and were of different age groups, different culture and backgrounds but shared a beautiful relationship.

​Ruth 1:1 In the days when the judges ruled, there was a famine in the land. So a man from Bethlehem in Judah, together with his wife and two sons, went to live for a while in the country of Moab. 2 The man’s name was Elimelek, his wife’s name was Naomi, and the names of his two sons were Mahlon and Kilion. They were Ephrathites from Bethlehem, Judah. And they went to Moab and lived there.
3 Now Elimelek, Naomi’s husband, died, and she was left with her two sons. 4 They married Moabite women, one named Orpah and the other Ruth. After they had lived there about ten years, 5 both Mahlon and Kilion also died, and Naomi was left without her two sons and her husband.
Ruth was a Moabite but came to know the Living God through the life of Naomi.
After Naomi lost her husband and her two sons, she told her daughters-in-law Orpah and Ruth to return to their mother's home, as she decided to go back to Bethlehem. At this they wept aloud again. Then Orpah kissed her mother-in-law goodbye, but Ruth clung to her. (Ruth 1:14)
Ruth said, (Ruth 1: 16-17)“Don't urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if even death separates you and me.” 
Ruth was a woman of inner strength, she worked hard by gathering in the fields and supported herself and Naomi. 
Naomi helped arrange Ruth's marriage with Boaz. And even when Naomi sent Ruth to lie at Boaz's feet, Ruth followed her advice without questioning her, though what she said was a Israelite custom, she was not familiar with. 
(Ruth 3: 3 Wash, put on perfume, and get dressed in your best clothes. Then go down to the threshing floor, but don’t let him know you are there until he has finished eating and drinking. 4 When he lies down, note the place where he is lying. Then go and uncover his feet and lie down. He will tell you what to do.”
5 “I will do whatever you say,” Ruth answered.)
Then Boaz fights all odds to marry Ruth.
Ruth 4: 13 "So Boaz took Ruth, and she was his wife: and when he went in unto her, the Lord gave her conception, and she bare a son.14 And the women said unto Naomi, Blessed be the Lord, which hath not left thee this day without a kinsman, that his name may be famous in Israel.15 And he shall be unto thee a restorer of thy life, and a nourisher of thine old age: for thy daughter in law, which loveth thee, which is better to thee than seven sons, hath born him. 16 And Naomi took the child, and laid it in her bosom, and became nurse unto it. 17 And the women her neighbours gave it a name, saying, There is a son born to Naomi; and they called his name Obed: he is the father of Jesse, the father of David."
Even after her marriage Ruth still was a daughter-in-law, and the same that she always was, to Naomi and her love for her mother-in-law was known all throughout the town. They say of Ruth that she loved Naomi, and therefore was better to her than seven sons (Ruth 4:15). 
In an age where mother-in-law and daughter-in-law can not see eye to eye, Ruth and Naomi set a beautiful example by sharing a beautiful relationship. 
Naomi also found great joy to be a nurse to her grandson Obed.
Because of Ruth's faithfulness she was the great-grandmother of King David, was one of the five women listed in the genealogy of Christ along with Tamar, Rahab, Bathsheba, and Mary.
So much to learn from Boaz too. He was a man of integrity, true to his words, kind to others, a successful businessman, sensitive to the needs of his employees.
May we learn valuable lessons from these Biblical personalities and may God restore relationships that the enemy has messed up on earth! 
Be blessed,
Julia

Each of us can make a difference...


Hi..
Each of us can make a difference...
Just because we can't preach or teach like great preachers and write like those great authors of best sellers, let us not think we are useless to God.
Just because we can't stand in the midst of the congregation and pray let us not think God does not hear us. 
A whisper of prayer behind closed doors can make a ton of difference in someones life!
Sometimes we may wonder, "what difference can I make, I'm just too young or too old or a just a homemaker", but God has countless ways to use us if we yield our time and talents to Him.
Each of us can do something to make this world a better place!
Small acts can make great changes!
I just want to share with you a something I read that has blessed me soo much.
I don't know who wrote it but it's the words that matters.
Read below!
Be Blessed,
Julia

From Gethsemane to Calvary you had me on Your mind~

 My Dear Lord and Savior Jesus Christ...(Yeshua)
Your love continues to captivate my heart...

Lord I know you had me on Your mind when You prayed in anguish in the Garden of Gethsemane, that Your sweat fell like drops of blood.. You knew You had to died in my place, carry all my sins, shame, may pain, my sickness, sorrow, my curse and everything else that was not right and good in me. You willingly chose to die for me so that  I can be totally free & have eternal life...
O how I love You Lord Jesus...
 Luke 22:44
And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.
Lord I know You had me on Your mind when You were flogged and O how painful it was and what a deep wound it caused and how much of blood You shed but still You bore it all without a word, for by those stripes You wanted to heal me....
John 19:1
Then Pilate took Jesus and had him flogged.
O how I love You my Lord Jesus/Yeshua my Savior...

Lord I know You had me on Your mind when they placed a crown of thorns on Your head and pressed it hard, how it pierced through Your head and eye-balls and blood oozed out, It hurt You so badly but You didn't open Your mouth and complain but bore it all for all evil thoughts and sights of mine....
O how I love You Jesus/Yeshua my Lord...
Lord you had me on Your mind when You were mocked, spat on Your face and when they pulled Your beard and stripped you...for You wanted to bear all my shame and clothe me with Your righteousness...
O how I love You Jesus/Yeshua the Lover of my soul....
 Matthew 27: 27 Then the governor's soldiers took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole company of soldiers around him. 28 They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him, 29 and then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on his head. They put a staff in his right hand and knelt in front of him and mocked him. "Hail, king of the Jews!" they said. 30 They spit on him, and took the staff and struck him on the head again and again. 31 After they had mocked him, they took off the robe and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him away to crucify him.
Lord you had me on your mind when you picked up the cross..O how heavy it was and it hurt your bruised back..but still you bore it for you made up your mind to carry my every burden...
O how I love You Jesus/Yeshua my King...
John 19:17
So the soldiers took charge of Jesus. Carrying his own cross, he went out to the place of the Skull (which in Aramaic is called Golgotha).
Lord I know You had me on Your mind when Your hands were nailed and You bled, it hurt You so...bad but You wanted to bear the sinful works of my hands so that now my hands can be blessed to bless others and serve others!
O how I love You Jesus/Yeshua my Shepherd...
Luke 23:33
When they came to the place called the Skull, there they crucified him.
Lord You had me on Your mind when Your legs were nailed and You bled again, it was too much to bear but still You bore the pain for all the wrong places these feet led me..so that now every place I go is blessed...
O how I love You Jesus/Yeshua my Guide...
And finally when a spear was pierced through Your side rupturing a portion of Your heart and Your stomach and blood and water gushed out...you still had me on Your mind for Your heart was ruptured for the wickedness of my heart, so that today my heart is a place where where You live..and filled it with Your love and compassion...
O how I love you Jesus/Yeshua my Provider...
John 19:34 Instead, one of the soldiers pierced Jesus' side with a spear, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water.  
And even today Lord Jesus, as You sit at the Father's right hand You still have me on Your mind and keep watching over me...and interceding for me
O how I love You Jesus/Yeshua .....

I bow before you Lord...
I praise you Jesus...
You are my Saviour....
O how I love you Lord...
You mould me and make me into a woman after your own heart..
Thank you for your grace that saved a sinner like me.

Galatians 6:14
May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

Hi my dear brothers, sisters and friends,
Isn't it amazing to think our Lord Jesus Christ had each of us on His mind not just from Gethsemane to Calvary but from the beginning of creation?
He knew us even when we were in our mother's womb.
Be Blessed,

Julia
Hebrews 12:2
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
