Chloe’s Questions

Mummy, Chloe said,
Why do lines form on your forehead
With a twinkle in her eye, Mummy replied
It shows how many times I’ve gone to bed

Mummy, Chloe said,
If God is real why can’t we see Him
Mummy thought a minute and then replied
He’s like the wind, we experience Him

Ex-peri-en-ce? Said Chloe,
Yes my dear, He wakes us up each morning
And we can see the pretty flowers opening
We can hear the birds singing and to one another calling

Remember Chloe,
in autumn when the wind blows hard
At times its whistles as it rushes through the trees
Fallen leaves brown and yellow filling our backyard
We rake and rake, at times bending on our knees

Ah, said Chloe, about this invisible God
Does He really make the moon and stars to shine at night
With a peaceful smile Mummy gave a nod
Yes, she said and the sun at noonday to shine so bright

God is a Father to us
He gives us food to eat and clothes to wear
He keeps us safe, even when we ride the bus
He is always near because He is everywhere

Mummy, Chloe said,
Why is God in  heaven is he dead?
No, no Mummy said, God is alive and well
He answers my prayers so I can surely tell

Mummy, Chloe said,
My teacher said that Jesus died for us
And, if we want to go to heaven and see Him,
Then accepting Him as our Saviour is a must.

Mummy stood and beamed with pride,
Her happiness distinctly unable to hide.
How right your teacher is dear Chloe,O Yes,
Only Jesus gives us Salvation and eternal rest!

 

God bless, LolaA

 

Obedience

Plain and simple is your Word
To fathom it I needn’t be a nerd

Lord your Word help me to understand;
Lord for your Word may I be willing to make a stand

Obedience you said above sacrifice
Total obedience to your Word, not being nice

Sacrifice is nice but obedience is better
When I obey you I become a trend setter

Obedience to you is my desire
Obedience is what you require

God, my Father to you is due obedience
And with such deference comes a light hearted conscience

Father great is the joy of obeying your Word, Knowing that I’m right with you and my prayers will be heard

Lord your beautiful in every situation
Obeying you’re your Word leads to a desirable destination

Obedience is doing the Godly thing
When it is neither the happening nor in-thing

For me obedience is not an act of compulsion,  But demonstrating love of an immense proportion

Obeying the Father and doing right
Uplifts a nation and takes us to a mighty height

Disobedience, rejecting Jesus and sin
Lands us in hell the ultimate bin

Brothers and Sisters let’s turn around and walk in light
Embracing Jesus who is awesome in power and might!

My Saviour’s love is all I need
Awesome love that teaches me His voice to heed.

2016 we welcome you with a cheer
Love, joy, hope, success and victory all are here!!!

 


 

 

 

Is Talking to Dogs the Real Deal?

Different Senses
Last night I caught some snippets of a television program where a lady said she could converse with dogs. Not conversing in words as humans do but via telepathy, the dogs communicated to her in images she said. She admitted to using a sixth sense, in terms of the fact that she was not using one of the natural 5 senses, i.e. she was operating outside the natural sphere, she had entered the realm of the spiritual.

My understanding is that in the spiritual realm there is a whole parallel universe. It is vast and it can be monstrous if you get sucked in on the wrong side of the sphere.

Good and Bad
In the physical world we have Good and we have Bad:

Good Deeds and Bad Deeds

Good People and Bad People

Good Health and Bad Health

Good Vibes and Bad Vibes

Good Friends and Bad Friends

Good Marks and Bad Marks

Good Governments and Bad Governments

Good Success and Bad Success

More often than not the good and the bad are poles apart.

In the spiritual real there is the Good sphere where the Father God dwells and leads His people to constant victory. And there is the Bad sphere where the arch enemy Satan dwells ruling over his prisoners and forcing them into a war that was lost thousands of years ago. Between these two spheres there is a large gulf that separates and disallows intermingling the story of Lazarus is testimony to this. (Luke 16:19-31).

It is very possible that the ‘animal psychologist’ as she styled herself was able to communicate with dogs and a host of other animals. However she may have unwittingly opened herself up to a very dangerous, dark and uncanny world, a world where the end result is never good.

If we want to use a sixth, seventh or eighth sense, if we want to get into the realm of the supernatural then our best bet is to check out the author of all senses. The Father God the Creator. He created the universe; He made the heavens and the earth and all that is within them.

A Poem
This short poem is in honour of His greatness:

Father, you stand by me night and day
You hear me when I pray

You know the number of hairs on my head
You grant me sweet dreams when I lay on my bed

May I showcase your glory
As I tell of your wonderful story

You made the heavens and the earth
Yes, you spoke and you gave birth

You’re the awesome creator
Yes, you made the mighty alligator

You formed the honey making bumble bee
And little oh humble me.

The universe is held steady by your hand
You sent your Son Jesus to make a stand

As far as you’re concerned it’s all about love
Thus your down payment the Holy Spirit, a dove

Dear friend you may shout in a bid to have your say
But I affirm to you, yesterday, today and forever, Jesus is the way!
