Verse To Live By

“Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.”

‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5:16-18‬ ‭NLT‬‬

This has been one of the verses I’ve lived by in the past few weeks. I have it memorized and I

just say it at random times to encourage me.

Bye for now. God bless.

Obey like Ruth

Salut! I had a plan to do a series on people in the Bible but I’m going to do them out of order and I chose to start with Ruth.

A little background information on Ruth:

  • The author is unknown
  • The audience is the people of Israel
  • It was written during the period of the judges.
  • It was written during a temporary time of peace between the people of Moab and the Israelites.

I’m going to do a chapter a week and share some things I found interesting or somethings that are important to story.

Ruth and Naomi are excellent role models of friendship, commitment and loyalty – to God and to each other.

What makes someone a good friend? A sense of humour? Common interests? Mutual friends?  What about loyalty – knowing that no matter how badly you mess up or how many arguments you have, your friends will never bail. You can’t expect others to be loyal without being willing to be loyal yourself. Friendships that last a lifetime require a lot of hard work. If you want to see a good friendship, check out the story of Ruth and Naomi along withy me.

See you next week with more on Ruth. God bless.

The Bible Project

Hola! I thought I posted this a while back and just figured out that I wanted to but never did, so here we go. I go to a youth group and we were talking about ways to read the Bible more. Our leader in small groups told us about The Bible Project to help choose a book of the Bible to start with. The Bible Project basically gives you a brief explanation of each book of the Bible and it talks about other things.

Before I started the Ruth series, I watched the video that summarises the book of Ruth and it was really helpful.

That’s it for now. Au revoir.

Armour of God

Hola! I was meant to post this a while back but I just never got to it. At my church, I help out with the nursery and we do a lot of different things. Right now, we’re doing the miracles of Jesus and last week, we did a presentation of the story when Jesus told the wind and waves to calm down and they did. A little while back, we did a presentation of the Armour of God and it was so cute.

It took many weeks to prepare because the kids made the armour of God themselves and we had to practice the songs and the Bible verse, but it was fun.

The Armour of God comes:

Ephesians 6:10-18(NIV)

The Armour of God

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armour of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.13 Therefore put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.

How Did It Go?

Salut! Comment ça va? Did anyone try memorising the Bible verse? Or try reading it every day? Comment if you did and say how it went.

This week’s Bible verse is:

John 1: 1- 9 (technically John 1: 6-9)

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome[a] it.

There was a man sent from God whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.

The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world.

À bientôt mes amis. Dieu vous bénisse (God bless).

What’s new?

Hello, everyone. Yes, I’m posting two times today because I just noticed something that I thought I should share.I just noticed that I started this blog about a year ago. I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has encouraged me through all of this and those who have given feedback. Thank you all so much. I’ve learnt a lot and have definitely improved my relationship with God in this year. I’ve had times when I post a lot and times when I don’t but I’m trying to be more active and this will take quite a lot of commitment, but I’ll try.

That’s it for now. God bless.

Take Our Survey!

A key?

Hello there. So this is a funny story that got me thinking. A few days ago after church, my mum got out of the car and my brother and I refused to get out of the car. My mum went into the house and since we were not ready to get out of the car, she locked the door.My brother and I eventually decided to come out of the car minutes later and when we got to the front door of the house realized that my mum had locked the door. We kept pressing the doorbell, knocking on the door and did everything we could, but my mum refused to come open the door. After a while, we gave up and just sat down and played some games. 30 minutes later, my mum yells from the window, “Where’s the key you locked the door with this morning?” My brother and I felt so silly because I noticed that we had been locked outside for 30 minutes but I had the key the whole time.

That is the same with God. He gives us the keys to unlock doors every day and all we do is stand in front of the doors and never use the keys to unlock them. If only we could unlock the doors with the keys our Heavenly Father has given us. We are all so guilty. Sometimes the doors are already unlocked but we don’t even notice.

May the Lord help us all know just the right thing to do at every given time. Amen.

That’s it for now. À bientôt. Dieu vous garde (God bless you).
