A time for everything

Featured

The BIBLE says that there is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot. (Ecclesiastes 3:1-2)

1.CELEBRATION

One of the thing we celebrate in Life is the time of our BIRTH ,I’m thankful to the Lord for another year He has added to my Life last Monday November 19, we celebrate my birthday with our godfather and mother with their wonderful children and my two beautiful filipina friend Analiza   and Maria Jose Jose Thankful to God for their Life too, on my birthday I prayed for my Mother remembering her as God used to bring me out to this world, The Bible say that before GOD has formed us in the womb He knew us before we were born ,He has set us apart ( Jeremiah 1:5) meaning he has plan Everything in our Life ,He plan who will be our Parents to bring us out to this world,He plan what you will be in the future etc.He determine the time set for us and the exact places where we should live , all the days ordained for us were written in the book of God before one of them came to be (psalm 139:16) .

*Note* God did not plan the bad thing that happened in our life ,he just allow it ” nothing happened without a reason” his plan is not to harm us but to prosper us ,he plan to give us hope and a future.( Jeremiah 29:11)

1.THE SPAN OF OUR LIFE

Psalm 90:10 says , the Lengths of our days is seventy years –or eighty if we have the Strength; yet their span is but trouble and sorrow ,for they quickly pass, and we fly away.  If we Measure our Life with this verse from the time we were born from 1-40 years our strength is great it’s increasing  through the years as we grew up, if we compare it to a Flower it is the time when flowers bud bloom beautifully ,if it is a grass or tree it is a time when the leaves are very green .BUT from 40-80 years in above ,our STRENGTH is depreciating diminishing  as we grow older our strength is becoming weaker .It is like a Flowers that start to fall and a grass that start to wither.

*notei am not saying here that the length of man’s life is just 70 or 80 only because some men  lived much longer than that span of life ,I just watch the TV last week for a woman who reach 100 years as long we take care of our body with proper diet and exercise we will be healthy and could live longer also but I believe that according to God’s word after He flood the earth and shortened the life span of man from almost a thousand years like Methuselah who lived 969 years into 120 years only , today I have not seen or read a news for a man who reach 120 years before He died unless I miss it or not updated.

2.WHAT SHALL WE DO? 

since our Life is very short what shall we do then, How many years left more to our Life? ‘For me I am now in the stage where in my physical strength is diminishing not increasing So while we are Strong and Alive Let us Serve The LORD , the bible says ,SEEK  the Lord while He maybe found ,call on him while he is near , Let the wicked FORSAKE  his ways and the evil man his thoughts Let him turn to the Lord and He will have mercy on him and to our God for He freely pardon.(Isaiah 55:6-7) while we have the opportunity ,while we have the time ,while we are strong and Alive let us seek the LORD and SERVE  him.

3. WHY WE SHOULD SERVE GOD? 

our service to God is what matter most in Life
because that is what is Eternal ,Our Relationship with God is what continuous even after our Life here on earth all other aspects of our lives is but temporary. JESUS has promised ,behold I am coming soon my reward is with me and i will give to everyone according to what he has done ( Revelation 22:12)

God is going to reward us with eternal blessing when He comes . Eternal Life and many more ..if you are reading this ,would you want me to pray for you by just sincerely praying this …

LORD JESUS , I surrender my life to you , help me to serve you with the remaining days and years of my Life , I ask you to forgive me of my sins ,Cleanse me with your blood that was shed on Calvary , I open my heart to recieved you as my personal Lord and Savior. In Jesus name, Amen.God bless you.

Before it’s too late

My Observation!
God is good all the time! I was amazed with the new invironment I saw everyday when I came to live here in Macedonia just few months ago Passing by our neighborhood I take picture of every fruit trees flowers and vegetables planted in their backyard.One Time I’m watching our neighbors garden and taking pictures again and an old woman from the house near the garden is saying something but because I’m little bit far away so I did not heard what she say I just wave my hand in response then go.I usually heard macedonian people greeting one another with “Zdravo”which mean Hello “dobro utro” good morning “dobar den” good afternoon Kako si? How are you ?

THE SAD NEWS!
My husband Dragan came back from his job and everything is set for dinner.Before we eat I have ask my husband if we should wait for my mother in law but he said, we shall take dinner who knows what time she came back but then she call her and my mother inlaw said we shall not wait for her because she was lighting candle for our neighbors who just died so sad it’s the old woman I saw near the garden in front of their house.
I said ,when was the burial my husband says tomorrow.I exclaim, so quick she just died ,my husband says what shall we do with the dead you don’t keep it too long .I was surprise in Philippines culture is different.I came to know that Macedonian people bury their dead immediately for one or two days only after relatives and neighbors came for lightning candle.

OUR PLAN
we have been Praying for our neighbors and plan to share with them the gospel.There are few couples who are senior citizens.
I told my husband our neighbor died but we fail to share the gospel .my husband too is sad but he said I have tried to witness to his husband to give tracts but he reject.
I said ok then you are not responsible anymore to his blood but we still plan to share with him again in the future.

“BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE”
my husband said prepare yourself let’s go and share the gospel to my aunt before it’s too late.you know she is 85 yrs old now and who knows what life may bring to her tomorrow.
we visit her and share to her the Love of God.
I share in English and my husband translate it in their language Macedonian.
We share how much God loves her and that God wants her to be Saved and not to perished.
Sharing the final destiny of every man after our Life here on earth .
” In her response she said ,she is not too bad to go to hell but she acknowledged that she is a sinner and want to go to heaven. she is like a fruit that is ripen ready to be harvest.
We lead her to sinners prayer and prayed for her. Explaining what we have done , my husband read John 1:12 that says ,yet to all who received him ,to those who believed in his name , he gave the right to become children of God.we have a good time together having coffee before we go home .

LOOKING FORWARD!

waiting for another opportunity we could share the gospel again for another step of Salvation
That’s is for her to be baptized in water as what our Lord Jesus Christ came to demonstrate for us to follow.

EVALUATION
Did we share The Gospel because of Love that we want her to be Saved Or we have share the gospel because of fear that God might demand her blood from us for not doing our obligation to witness for Christ.?

Before it’s too late Let’s share the gospel
Our goal is to win soul for Christ.
GOD BLESS YOU.
