blessings, GOD, psalm 30

PSALM 30

This morning I woke up with a thankful heart. God is blessing us from his abundance daily.

I read Psalm 30, goes with a cup of coffee.

I will extol thee, O Lord; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.

O Lord my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.

O Lord, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.

Sing unto the Lord, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.

Lord, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.

I cried to thee, O Lord; and unto the Lord I made supplication.

What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth?

10 Hear, O Lord, and have mercy upon me: Lord, be thou my helper.

11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;

12 To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.

Happy 2022

“Kindness, kindness, kindness.

I want to make a New year’s prayer, not a resolution. I’m praying for courage.”
― Susan Sontag

I do not believe in the famous saying ”new year, new me” you know why? Oh well, because nothing can be new about us, we are still the same we were 1 day ago, on the 31st of December. 24 hours can’t make you all new.
We are getting too excited about the 1st of January, full of ideas thinking that this year will be different in a good, better way. But wait 1 minute, HOW?


Why a new year can give us a bag full of inspiration, ideas, excitement, and a new notebook to write in!?
We do forget something, planning our year with Jesus, our God. Being more Thankful, praying more often, and writing our new plans, ideas, challenge for the new year in god’s notebook.
Let’s not disappoint ourselves with our new year, new me by trying very hard and then at the end of the year to get depressed. Be wise and smart!
Start your morning with a prayer, and coffee/tea then everything will settle down.

De ce nu o sa-mi botez copilul

Cu toții am auzit de eroarea omeneasca, de acel copil care la varsta de 6 saptamani a fost botezat in stil ortodox, în urma botezului bebelusul a prins aripi spre un loc pe care noi nici macar nu ni-l putem imagina, raiul în toată splendoarea lui.

Nu o să intru în detalii, a cui a fost greșeala, de ce au l-au botezat la 6 saptamani, etc. Înainte de a vedea paiul din ochiul vecinului să ne vedem de bârna din ochiul nostru. Așadar o să descriu de ce nu o să fac un botez religios viitorului meu bebel.

Pâna la vârsta de 17 ani dacă mă întrebai ce religie am, sau dacă botezul copilului este important, dacă îmi schimb religia and so on… clar îți răspundem așa:

1. Ortodoxă

2. Cel mai important, de nu copilul v-a suferii cand e mai mare ( îți explic mai jos)

3. Niciodata, în asta m-am născut așa mor

Eu nu o să îmi botez copilul deoarece Dumnezeu a zis clar în biblie ce înseamnă botezul; înseamnă să îți mărturisești păcatele, să crezi că Isus a murit și pentru tine, să crezi cu toată inima ceea ce zici.

Un bebe nu poate avea înțelegerea unui adult, el nu poate alege, crede, lepezi de nimic în acel moment. Practic nu este alegerea lui.

O sa las copilul să decidă când este timpul să creadă in Dumnezeu, să se roage să i fie iertate păcatele, să primească viața veșnică dupa moartea fizică.

Eu cred în viața veșnică după moarte. Iar botezul este un simbol prin care eu arăt credința în EL. De fapt, botezul înseamnă moartea și învierea.

Practic să primesti iertarea pe care EL ne-a oferit o la cruce, atunci a șters orice păcat!

Când o să am bebe îi vom face o binecuvântare în care Pastorii se vor ruga pentru el/ea, și cam atat.

Nu am nimic împotriva botezurilor făcute bebelușilor de către ortodocși, ba chiar am participat la câteva.

PATIENCE, MY CHILD, PATIENCE

What is patience according to the Bible?

All over the Bible there are stories of men and women experiencing trials and tribulations. Some grumbled against God because of lack of water (Exodus 15:24), others worshipped God in trials and adversity (Job 1:20), others cried out to God in despair (Psalm 18:6). According to Scripture, PATIENCE is a virtue and a fruit of the Spirit, a sign of someone who trusts in God. According to 1 Samuel “lack of patience can cause you to miss blessings.” 

1 Corinthians 13:4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

 Ephesians 4:2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.

PSALM 7:7-9 7 Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes. 8 Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret—it leads only to evil. 9 For those who are evil will be destroyed, but those who hope in the LORD will inherit the land.

7 Bible Verses About Children to Read to the Kids

Jesus once was a kid, He was born into this world.

1st verse: Colossians 3:20

“Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.”

2. Proverbs 13:24

“Whoever spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is diligent to discipline him.”

Parents who choose to care for and discipline their children truly love them and wants the best for them.

3. Proverbs 1:8-9

“Hear, my son, your father’s instruction, and forsake not your mother’s teaching, for they are a graceful garland for your head and pendants for your neck.”

It’s so beautiful and amazing yo have a Mom and a Dad, and they to teach you right!

4. Matthew 18:2-4

“And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them 3 and said, ‘Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.'”

to have eternal life with God, we must think like children. Be humble, believe, have faith!

5. Mark 9:36-37

“And he took a child and put him in the midst of them, and taking him in his arms, he said to them, ‘Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, and whoever receives me, receives not me but him who sent me.’

Children are gifts from God himself. We should cherish and care for them as best as we can.

6. Exodus 20:12

“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.”

7. Mattew 19:14

“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

THE JOY OF SADNESS

Few years ago, Lady N had so much sadness in her heart that every day and night she planned her suicidal note for the one, two people still believing, loving her. For about a month she could not see the light at the end of the tunnel. Her sadness turned into depression. Being depressed is the worst nightmare. Nobody can take the depression away, is just between you and GOD.

Sadness is a normal human emotion that everyone feels once in a while. Like I said, sadness is a reaction to a loss, disappointment, problems in your family, financial struggle, a sick kid, etc. But the depression is a mental health that affects all your life aspects, is much deeper.

How can we involve God, when we are sad, depressed?

The Lady in our example, gave us her story.

”I was going through so much in my life back then, family issues, financial broken, my job offered me a low income, I had to study and to work, and the love chapter was there but not really, actually I felt unloved and I had no one to listen to me or support me, there was a lot of fake people in my life, and still they are.

I was a Christian, went to Church every week, listen to God’s word, but still my heart was not fulfilled. I knew something was missing from my life, I was looking at the people around me they looked happy, they had a nice family, a house, stability. And I had nothing, no plans for the future, no stability. My syptoms were

I could not focus on my every day tasks

Want to sleep all day long

I could barely get out of my bed and dress myself in the morning

No smile on my face all day long

And suicidal thoughts in my head. Actually I took some piles, I was so sick that day.

All this lasted for about 1 month. And then I talked with God, please help your child, you say in the bible that you will not give us more than we can handle, help me overcome this situation, and give me peace, love and wisdom.

I prayed and waited in silence for Him to give me Joy, and healing. Every day I prayed, and tried to work even though my mind said no. After a while I saw my life took a right turned, someone offered me a better pay job, and every little thing gave me confidence. A year later my life is totally changed, my faith is restored and I learnt to trust HIM again. I have a lot of joy, peace and learnt from my mistakes”.

I know is not easy to overcome depression, sadness, but try to speak with Him, read your bible, ask your Pastor, and write down all your thoughts and then find a solution for every thought/problem. It will help a lot.

Just think that you are not alone, you still have 1-2 people believing, loving you, ask for help.

In our life we going through a lot of sadness, anxiety and sometimes depression, in those moments how important is our life, we have value, all our problems are temporarily, be patient, have faith, surround yourself with wise people.

The joy comes from trusting God!
