So far I’m loving it! It is very affordable for this awesome quality! (You know students got strict budget!) I have been testing its reaction to heat and behaviour after washing. I’ll give you the review in a chatty video very very soon.

“But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.” Matthew 12:36
How often do we carelessly say things without thinking about the content and its consequences?
How often do we deliberately hurt others with our words?
Do we always say the truth?
Do we always say uplifting words?
Do we break others down with our words?
Jesus says we shall give an account of EVERY idle word.
It’s mind blowing. It’s real. You’re charged to be careful of your choice of words.
When people lie against you, get down on your knees and cry your heart out…
Let the pain out,
Cry to your Father in heaven.
He can and will heal your pain.
He will guide you through it.
He will let you know when and how to redeem yourself, your reputation.
Sometimes He lets others do it for you.
But as you wait, put Him first. Forgive.
Rejoice in Him.
Learn your lessons.
Trust only Him.
The truth can’t be hidden forever.
You know who you are.
With God on your side, you’re stronger than a thousand men.
Confuse your enemy.
Homosexuality. What does this term tell me? What do I associate with it? As a ‘straight’ person, as a practising homosexual or as a Christian? Homosexuality is not a ‘modern phenomenon’ as some think. It has been there at least for the past 2000 years. And yes, it has always been wrong in God’s eyes. (1 Tim 1:10). Now that’s for the Christian.
For the ‘straight’ person, you are not any better than the homosexual. Why? ‘For all have sinned…’ In God’s eyes, there are no different ‘types’ or ‘sizes’ in sin. So just because your sin bears different consequences than your neighbor’s doesn’t make you better than they are. You shouldn’t make fun of them or make them feel bad. Mockery is never the way forward, neither is hating nor punishing them with stigmatising. What you ought to do is love them, the individuals, and pray for them.
Talk to them in love and plant the seed and leave it to grow. It won’t be in vain. Many homosexuals are forced to practise because of money or are being abused. Some do not know anything else. That’s why they need us to be there for them. Don’t forget to pray for yourself as well. It is not easy sticking to what the Bible says on homosexuality. Nevertheless, you should make it clear that it is the act that is wrong and should be avoided but not the people practising it. God loves us all equally. Jesus was there for tax collectors and prostitutes, whose position could be compared to today’s homosexuals. Hate the evil act, not the people.
To the homosexual, you’re still a child of God. He loves you, no matter how your past and present situations are. Think of your eternal life. Is it love you are getting from your partner? Anyone who truly loves you would be concerned about your welfare, earthly and eternal. It is never too late. Whatever it is that you get from the homosexual relationship, remember God says we should seek Him first and everything else will be given to you. He’ll supply your needs according to His riches. Overcome this challenge and experience the joy of being in sync with God.
Quick update on the forgiveness challenge: I’ve been able to totally forgive some people and not look back at what they did to me. It worked even better than I thought. This challenge has however opened my eyes to the kind of relationship I have with some people and how they actually see our relationship.
Some people will keep offending me because they do not value me the way I value them. I believe that friendship means wanting the best for the other, encouraging the growth of the friendship through actions. However, I’ve noticed that some people I call friends do not care about our friendship or about my welfare. They are not friends I can rely on. They do not put in any effect to help me when I need it. This is quite a disappointment for me because I try as much as possible to be there for them. I do not mind going out of my way to make a friend happy. I’m not saying this to boast. This is how I was brought up. This is who I’ve grown up to become. Another failed part is respect. Respect is reciprocal. But it seems some people have either missed this or successfully ignored it.
Now, how do I intend to deal with this? It hurts. It’s disappointing. It scares me from making new friends and trusting them. It scares me from being me, from giving my best at being the good friend that I ought and want to be.
The best way, I’ve discovered, is to limit such friendships. That doesn’t mean you’ve to become rude or mean. I’ll help when I am called to but I will try to keep my distance. It’s being close to the person that gets me hurt and disappointed so keeping my distance will keep the frequency low. And the distance and less hurting will help me forget the pain and forgive them. I don’t have to see them every time to be reminded of my pain. Limiting their access also helps you learn not to rely on them or expect anything from them.
Channel your energy where it’s needed. You derive motivation from that.
