Show your world – our new library

My fellow blogger Yulia a from the blog Tiny Expats has this blogging event and I would like to take part in that event. Our libraries are totally different today. I remember libraries as very silent places with rows of bookshelves and small boxes for the small children. I liked very much to walk around and look at the titles as a child and young person. […]

Devotional Friday 23 October 2015 

How to keep your life in balance is shown in II Peter 1:2-9 Peter tells us just before his death in Rome that we should let the grace of God be multiplied on us in the full, personal and precise and correct knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord ( inspired from the Amplified Bible) Grace is God’s favour Peace ( perfect well-being, all necessary good,  all spiritual prosperity and freedom from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts) How do we get hold of these promises ? By His divine power we can get into all that is suited to life and godliness and escape the moral decay that is in this world because of lust and greed. We are supposed to add our diligence to the divine promises and employ every effort in exercising your faith to develop virtue and knowledge. In exercising knowledge develop self-control and steadfastness and godliness. If I am lacking in these qualities I am shortsighted and oblivious to the fact that I was cleansed from my old sins. For the last 45 years I have tried to understand these things and I am sure many secret gems are hidden here. This last bit reminds me of Paul’s letter to  Colossians 1:13-14 The father has delivered and drawn us to Himself out of the control and  dominion of darkness and has transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in […]

Devotional Friday #3

My quote comes from the story of Jairus in the New Testament. He wanted help from Jesus to heal his daughter. She was very ill and died while Jesus was occupied in helping a woman who had suffered many years from incurable bleeding. When Jesus heard that the girl had died he ignored the bad tidings and said to Jairus […]
