MUSIC, MOVIES, LANGUAGE: What should a Christian Say, Listen To and Do?

Let me tell you a story about myself. I had a heavy weight in my heart! I felt a strong burden and I couldn’t explain it. I felt sober, like I was sad and repentant about something but I didn’t know what it was. So I rushed into my room which was surprisingly empty and I climbed up my bunk and cried my eyes out. I cried and cried and cried till nothing could come out anymore. Continue reading MUSIC, MOVIES, LANGUAGE: What should a Christian Say, Listen To and Do?

Christian Works : Is it by works?

If you have been a Christian for at least a day, I am sure you have heard the popular, clichéd phrase – It’s not by works!

Aha! That one phrase that answers all questions, queries and complaints. If you ask a sister why she decided to sleep over at her boyfriend’s house last weekend; she will say “it’s not by works so don’t judge me”. If you ask someone why they haven’t attended church in a while – it’s not by works. Ask someone why they are repeatedly not fasting – it’s not by works oo.

On Being Alone

As a single person (by single I mean not in a relationship or courtship), I have always had one major prayer: the prayer of companionship. I always ask God to bring someone into my life, not just so I can say I have a boyfriend (and people can stop asking me questions) but because I genuinely desire the companionship. I have friends, very close friends but you know it’s not the same as having that person that is just for you (winks), that person you know has your back no matter what, that person whose problem is to make sure you don’t have any problems (haha) Continue reading On Being Alone

When To Be Silent

If you claim to be religious but don’t control your tongue, you are fooling yourself, and your religion is worthless. – James 1:26 (NLT)

As Christians we commonly know and follow biblical guidelines on most areas of our life; but how many of us knew there are guidelines to how we use our mouth and our speech? I for one knew there should be but I never actually took them to heart or seriously until one day when in the place of prayer I felt God convicting me about my speech. As much as it’s important we know when to speak and what to say; it’s also important we know when to be silent – there is a time to speak and a time to be silent (Ecc 3:17)

What I Learnt from Fasting for 10 Days

In July, my church announced a 10-day mid-year fast that would be 4 days – breaking with food, 3 days – break with fruit, 3 days – break with only water.  I was involved in that fast and here is what I learnt from it.

is it God's will?

What is the will of God

But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted! – John 15:7 (NLT)

Many times as Christians, we get hung up on whether something is God’s will for us or not; you hear people saying I want this but I don’t know whether its God’s will for me or Let’s say I pray for something and I didn’t get it, i immediately assume that maybe its not God’s will for me. the will of GodMany times in making more serious decisions such as picking a spouse, choosing a job or deciding what career to go into we are held up at knowing whether something is the will of God or not.
