Psalm 91 – God’s protection over you

Psalm 91

Psalm 91: 1-16  1. Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

2. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”

3. Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence.

4. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. 

5. You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,

6. nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.

7. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. 

Psalm 91

8. You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.

9. If you say, “The LORD is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling,

10.  no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.

11. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;

12. they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

13. You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

14.  “Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

15. He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. 

16. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”

In conclusion

Meanwhile, soak in and pray over this chapter. Seek God with an understanding to gain a breakthrough. In order to comprehend the significance of such a time as this, we need God’s wisdom.

Until we know what God wants to accomplish in our lives. Therefore, I urge you to pray in uncertain time and know His purpose.

Advice for spouses in stressful time – listen

Advice for spouses

What advice do you give to spouses during time of stress? Speaking from my personal experience, here are some that I find critical in helping both my husband and I, become closer.

In stressful time, listen to each other. Instead of blaming, talk. Instead of nagging, listen. Take time to support each other rather than fight.


Firstly – Plan ahead to block time off

When our son attends school, both of us find time to ourselves for the first time. Some mornings, we have breakfast together. Other time, we just drive around and talk to each other.

Occasionally, we explore new sights and share our mutual interest, photography. Simply spending time together, whether it is to just chat over life or over mutual interest.

I discover that by spending time with my spouse just the two of us, It helps to rekindle some of those sparks once lost because of our busy life. Above all, do not take this for granted.


Secondly – Your spouse is not the enemy

Recognize that moment when you perceive your spouse as the enemy is the result of feeling unsupported. When your are in that state of mind, it is time to talk to your spouse about it.

Here is an example of what not to do

My problem is, I have the tendency to keep my emotions to myself for a while. The only time I will talk about how I feel is when I am about to explode.

Then I finally confront my husband and we both explode together. Obviously, that, is not good.

Advice – What we learn

At the end of every conversation, we often come to realize we need each other. My spouse then does his best to help me out. I finally feel better.

One thing I do learn from our experience, is that when we sit and talk about our emotions, we help each other alleviate our stress level.

I learn that by talking about my needs, my spouse then knows how to help me reduce that stress level. At the same time, when I listen to him, he feels supported. While, keeping this in mind, we are not each other’s enemies.


Thirdly – Stop nagging, respond by actively listen

The fact is we all have stress. You are not the only one stressing out. However, during a crisis, it is important to identify who has the higher stress.

When the one who suffers because of high stress, becomes non functional, the other provides the support. This key point is very crucial to get everyone through the crisis.

 Conclusive advice

I conclude that by actively listening to our spouse, we not only help each other reduce our stress level, we solve our spouse’s problems. We feel absolutely supported and henceforth, we will avoid escalating a crisis.

Lock in and pray in times of uncertainty

Lock in and pray because drastic time warrant drastic measures. As a country, we are told to lock down and enforce social distancing. What a scary time we are in. As believers, we can do something.

Lock in and pray

We can buckle down and pray for our nation. This is the time we need to seek God. We have the ability to call on God to intervene and divert a disaster. Prayer warriors I beseech you, act now and the time is now.

When fear and worry overwhelm us, we become paralyzed. As a consequence of that we become unproductive. We can either dwell in worries or buckle down and turn to God’s ability.

Lock in

Lock in then soak in God’s promises

The best defense is to soak ourselves in God’s promises. We know that everything is uncertain right now. But, we also know that God is certainly faithful. He is our pillar of hope and peace.

Remember when God’s people wondered for forty years, two pillars guided them through the journey. For example, the pillar of cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night. What did the pillars signify?

Move in God’s sight

God was with them through the journey. Although they went through the wilderness for several years, God continued to watch over them in times of uncertainty.

Why did God allow that? I don’t know but maybe they needed to learn something and grow in their faith in God. One thing we know for sure, they were never alone.

Trust in God’s sovereignty

In our sense of uncertainty, trust in God’s ability to have peace because we know God is in control. He is the light we look for at the end of that tunnel. Yet, we know, God also provide the light we need for each step of our way. Psalm 119:105 says:

” Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”

As we conclude, let this article reminds us to buckle down and pray, to soak ourselves in God’s promises because He is faithful. We continue to trust in God’s sovereignty because when everything else are not certain, the God we believe, is in control. May you be blessed.

Sunflowers Turn To The Sun – Turn To God

Reason For Writing About This Flower

Sunflowers turn towards the sun to survive. Do you know that? Now, what is so special that I write an article on it?

First of all, I love sunflowers and they are one of my favorites, besides yellow roses, daffodils and freesias. Then, secondly, sunflowers are not ordinary flowers. Why do I say that?

Well, many women around the world love them. For instant, when you have a vase of sunflowers in your room, they catch everyone’s attention in that room immediately.

For the obvious reason, they put smiles on faces because they are bright and cheery. In light of that, I hope to draw your attention to why they are indeed special.

Interesting Facts


Let me share some interesting facts about them:

These are the 3 facts:

  • More than sixty different varieties of sunflowers can be found in the world. Out of all these, the most common one is bright yellow, with dark brown centers filled with seeds.
  • A sunflower head is made up of 1,000 to 2,000 individual flowers that are joined together to a base. The large petals that are found around the edge of a sunflower are individual ray flowers, these do not develop into seeds.
  • At the same time, a single sunflower can have up to 2000 seeds.  A distinguishing quality of the sunflower is that its flowering head tracks the sun’s movement. This occurrence is known as “heliotropism.”

In august 2009, I grew some of these flowers myself and they amazed me. As a result, I took several photos of them.

More Facts

I planted some ‘evening Sun’ in my garden. At the same time, I also noticed many tiny flowers grew out of the base head of the sunflowers. As a result, out of a single sunflower, I got up to 2000 seeds. Yes, I had a wonderful harvest of sunflower seeds, that year.

Sunflowers According to science, sunflowers exist from evolution. How is this possible? On the contrary, through creative design, I see God’s hands in it. He creates his best handiwork through patterns and details.

Have you wonder at how colors blend together beautifully and how they capture our eyes in an instant? Can science explains it all?

Until you plant and observe these flowers, you may never appreciate their uniqueness and the way God designs them.

Sunflowers Turn Towards The Sun

If you remember, these sunflowers track the sun. They turn towards the source, the sun. Therefore, the flowers yearn for a source much greater than themselves.

Today, I would like to share a truth from the Bible with you. The Bible says in Matthew 6:28 – 34

“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? “

“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. “

I Have Good News For You

I have great news for those who believe the Bible. God cares about you! If He takes care of the flowers that bloom today and are gone by tomorrow, would He not also take care of you?

The truth remains that when God’s one and only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ die on the Cross for our sins  John 3:16 says:

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

What Sin Have I Done?

Have you lied? Do you know, ‘white lies’ are lies? Did you covet? Do you believe God exist? For example, do you believe He creates you?

When you trust the pilot to get you to your vacation destination safely, that is faith. Have you instinctively trust in your natural ability above trusting God? Do you hoard your possessions rather than let God controls what you have?

If your answers are Yes, then you have not trust Him. Choose today whom you will serve. Is it God or self or the devil? Jesus says:

“I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father (God) except through me.” John 14:6

He who has the Son (Jesus) has life, he who does not have the Son of God has not life. May you be truly blessed this day!

Recycled prayers versus refreshing prayers

Recycled prayers are nothing new to us. Since today is declared our nation’s day to pray, I hope to address some of our thoughts on prayers. Have you asked yourself what it is? Why do we need someone to tell us how to pray since praying is talking to God.

Over the years, we read books on how to pray. Meanwhile, we rely on the sinners prayer that we recite to God for our salvation. Here’s the problem because we aren’t robots. God created us with an intent to reciprocate His love for us. What does that mean?

Recycled prayers

Declaring His name

Recycled prayers are not from our hearts

Does doing it right more important than sounding good? Why is it so important to us that we rather sound good in prayers? Does it matter if we fumble in our prayers before God? Does He penalize your child like prayers? You might have guess it right where I am going with this.

We come to God with a child like faith. We can come to God with a child like prayer.


They become religious norm

When these prayers that we recite on daily basis become a norm, we become at risk, of being spiritually dead. Some to these days, still practice them. Be careful, that at the end of our journey we lose our way.

Does it really matter if we recite our prayers after all? The Bible says: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind.’ Matthew 22:37

Can we be sincere as we recite our prayers? Yes, we can. We have to intentionally check our state of hearts, souls and minds.

How about refreshing our prayers?

Jesus said not to forbid any child from coming to Him. He opened His arms to the children. Children are not afraid to make mistakes. If Jesus welcome children to His Kingdom, would it hurt to come to Him in prayers like a child? No! Absolutely not.

Jesus does not delight in sound good prayers. He searches your heart and your soul and mind for where your love is. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Recycled prayers – In conclusion

Seek to love God with all your heart, soul and mind. Then your prayers will flow, out of abundant of your heart. He will find joy and delight in those prayers, so refreshing and pure.
