  • God desires to be like the dragon fruit….Hard outside but when cut open, the fruit springs out gently, naturally and beautifully. Ready for people to enjoy it. And this fruit is the fruit from the holy spirit which is….
  • Faith Produces Faithfulness.
    Faith is the root of faithfulness.
    Many may think we are faithful but our foundation must be based on the root word faith. SO WHAT IS FAITH?
  • My squash experience where I was persuaded that I could win, and the result…. Human persuasion that have many flaws and no guarantees.
  • Faith is Trusting/ Persuaded that God has the best for us - present and future.
  • Faith is Trusting/ Persuaded that God has the best for us - present and future.
  • Jesus being our author and finisher of our faith. We look to Jesus for what we dream for or envision for and not how the world looks at vision.
    For instance, I have faith in gravity. I believe that, wherever I am in the world, if I drop something it will fall. I do not and cannot have absolute knowledge of this, for I cannot be everywhere at once at all times dropping things and proving my hypothesis. And perhaps - just perhaps - there are certain and extremely rare conditions on earth where I could drop something and it wouldn't fall, where gravity wouldn't apply - I don't know. But even so, the only reasonable and intelligent thing to assume, based on my own experiences and on what others have told me, is that gravity always applies. So I have faith in gravity.
    Gravity is like Jesus, I am the ball, When I fly up in the air, I will fall into the arms of Christ each time. I must have divine persuasion in knowing that Christ died on the cross, He knows me by name, He knows my future and my past and He desires me to reach the potential He created me to be.
  • During World War II, a military governor met with General George Patton in Sicily. When he praised Patton highly for his courage and bravery, the general replied, "Sir, I am not a brave man. . .
    John Hopkins University doctor says, "We do not know why it is that worriers die sooner than the non-worriers, but that is a fact." But I, who am simple of mind, think I know; We are inwardly constructed in nerve and tissue, brain cell and soul, for faith and not for fear. God made us that way. To live by worry is to live against reality. The truth is, I am an utter craven coward. I have never been within the sound of gunshot or in sight of battle in my whole life that I wasn't so scared that I had sweat in the palms of my hands." Years later, when Patton's autobiography was published, it contained this significant statement by the general: "I learned very early in my life never to take counsel of my fears."
  • Many don’t experience this profit because many did it on their own.
    We stop serving because we have to study or because of family issues,etc
    When you stop because of your studies, you stop trusting God and begin to trust in yourself thus when you get good results, honestly deep in you, you think that it was your your hard work that paid off. But people who study and serve God in faith that God will still reward them, when they pass or get good results they can testify of their faith because they went though it in faith.
  • A man was lost in the desert and was near death for lack of water. Soon he came across a pump with a canteen hung on the handle and a note. The note read as follows: "Below you is all
