Play golf?

Do you play golf? Who plays golf here? Well, I don’t and never had a chance to play that except for the mobile games golf. But I guess that would be one good experience. If you are playing or want to learn the game there is this site that offers some golf training aids reviews. Golf is an interesting sport, I am always fascinated with Tiger woods but here in my country, golf is only for the rich people. Well, I hope I can even hold a golf club someday. Hehe!

Anyways, just want to leave you this verse before I go ;

Philippians 2:4 (New International Version)

Each of you should look not only to your own interests,
but also to the interests of others.

God bless everyone!

Thankful Thursday

I still do not know what the theme for this week because it is not yet Thursday in some part of the world. I guess I am a bit early but that's fine, I might not have an Internet access later so I better finish this meme now.

For this week I am thankful for the following;

1. Healing - I got sick last week, I thought there is really something wrong with me. Praise God for HE is our Healer.

2. I can't thank HIM enough for giving me my husband. When I was sick and couldn't do a thing on my own, he showed me even more how much he love me, he fed me, prayed for me,take good care of me. I know I am blessed with a wonderful godly husband.

3. I am thankful I had the chance to read Priscilla Shirer's " A jewel in His crown" -rediscovering your value as a woman of excellence. I love this one. I am relearning things in new perspective.

So there's my list for this week. How about you? You can share your thankful heart with us too. Lynn is hosting for this month.

Overcoming Difficult Times


"Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise Him, my Savior and my God"
(Psalm 42:5-6, NIV).

TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria

When times get tough, don´t be surprised if you feel a heaviness trying to overwhelm you. Don´t be surprised if you hear negative thoughts telling you, "It´s never going to work out. Things are never going to get better. It´s over. It´s done." When those thoughts come, remember, you have a choice–you don´t have to believe those lies. You don´t have to get on board with your emotions.

In the Bible, David encountered many difficult situations. That spirit of heaviness tried to steal his destiny. He got depressed and discouraged, but do you know what he did? He started talking to himself. He said, "Why are you cast down, oh my soul? Put your hope in the Lord." He was saying, "David, snap out of it! Why are you discouraged? Why have you lost your joy? God is still on the throne, and He still has good things in store." When that heaviness tries to come on you, do what David did. As you put your trust in the Lord and praise Him, He´ll give you His strength and empower you to overcome every obstacle you may face!


Father in heaven, thank You for the strength to overcome the difficult times. I choose to shake off the spirit of heaviness by praising and worshiping You. I bless You today and always. In Jesus´ Name. Amen.
