ALWAYS THERE TO HELP

Image result for God is always there to help me

Even though I can't see You
I know You see me
Not just from the outside
But also my inside.

Even when I can't hear You
I know You hear me
And You're always listening
Even to the words I don't speak.

Even though I can't touch You
You always touch me
With hugs from friends
And the gentle breeze.


Even when I don't feel You
I know You feel my every pain
And know my every sorrows
You're always there to help me.


Even when I don't, I just know
You'll always come through for me
Because it is not about me
But it is and will always be about You.

THE TRIUMPH OF LOVE

 Image result for jesus died and rose again

For unto us the Savior came
Precious gift from God above
Jesus Name above all names
Perfect expression of God's love.

Glory to God in the highest
Peace and good will to men
He gave us His very best
When Christ the Savior came.

For Love came sweetly down
Choosing to be born as a man
In the city of David-Bethlehem town
For that was God's perfect plan.

Effusing with healing and grace
He went about doing good
Brought salvation to the human race
Teaching us to live as we should.
 Image result for JESUS LOVES YOU

Love came down and was crucified
To redeem the souls of sinful men
That we may be sanctified and justified
And truly become God's children.

Love came and triumphed gloriously
Up from the grave Christ arose
Defeated death so marvelously
Now in Him we stand victorious. 

He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.  
 In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.1 John 4:8-9(NKJV)

NOT ON HIM THE NATURE OF ANGELS


Image result for jesus died and rose again
Not on Him the nature of Angels,

Nor the lust for equality with God.

Not on Him a royal reputation,

Nor the comeliness of a Son.



Fashioned in the likeness of a man

He spelt the glory that girt our eyes;

One Man upon a city advancing,

Divinity in disguise…..



Falling beneath our sorrows

Serving death at the cross,

His body the bloody sacrifice

For a harvest of righteous ones.
Image result for christ is risen he is risen indeed

And these upon the earth,

Bearing the yoke of His will,

Spring to declare His Kingdom

In the sun of His Resurrection,


He died for all so that all who live-having received eternal life from Him-might live no longer for themselves, but to spend their lives pleasing Christ who died and rose again for them.
2 Corinthians 5:15

GRATEFUL

Image result for a grateful heart

You have been so good to me
Your love and mercy I continually see
And I'm so grateful Lord
Grateful for the promise of Your Word.


Grateful for the wonderful blessings You send
For a beautiful family and loving friends
You shower upon me Your goodness and grace
Forever it's You I'll love, worship and praise.


You have been so good to me
Even in times it seemed hard to see
You have been my shelter and comfort
In You, I find refuge and resort.


I just want to say I'm grateful
My Lord and King, You are faithful
Thank You for today and every day
Each day I'll choose to walk in Your way.

Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! 
For His mercy endures forever.Psalm 107:1(NKJV)

GODLY PARENTING IN THE DIGITAL AGE
by Benjamin Anabaraonye

 Image result for Train up a child in the way he should go
It is the duty of parents to bring up their children in the way of the Lord. In our digital age, godly parenting has become so important in raising up a godly generation that will walk in integrity and dignity.”Training” requires a lot of efforts on the part of the parents and co-operation on the part of the children. Thus, the bible also admonishes ”Children,obey your parents in the Lord,for this is right”. Ephesians 6:1(NIV)
THE DIGITAL AGE
Media technology is here to stay and has become a permanent part of our lives. In our digital age,there is great concern about how it may be affecting our kids and youths.I believe parents can learn to embrace its  advantages,reduce its adverse effects and raise children who can still relate heart to heart with people,appreciate and participate in the beauty and wonders of nature and grow up to be well rounded,healthy,caring and compassionate adults.
The challenge for parents is to understand the benefits and pitfalls of media technology in the lives of their children and to help them create balance in their lives.
THE INTERNET AND ITS PITFALLS FOR KIDS AND YOUTHS
The chief information media in our digital age is the Internet.The Internet can be a useful tool for preaching the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and disseminating sound,edifying materials to the body of Christ and the world at large.
However,we also find gangster films,erotic music,weird and vile ideas,pornography,etc. now common on the internet.These can affect our kids and youths negatively if they are not properly educated.
Thus,parents must evaluate their efforts at controlling what their youths consume on the internet.Parental care and control measures must be established to shield their children from the negative impact of the Internet and Media technology. Such Measures include:
 EDUCATION ON SEX ISSUES: A child’s sex education often comes through schools or churches.But a Christian parent should always be the first person to speak with their child about sex related issues.The appropriate age to discuss these matters varies from child to child but if a parent is going to err,it should be sooner than later.
Sooner or later,a child in curiosity may get to learn from the wrong sources about sex and may lead to addictions to pornography and other forms of sex abuse if they don’t get the right education on time.
For those wanting to learn more,  ”How and when to tell your kids about sex” by Stan and Brenna Jones may be helpful.
EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE: Parents should keep the environment safe for their kids.This requires a proper training on emotional intelligence for  the parents.
 Routine checks should be carried out to ensure that erotic and offensive materials are never found in the custody of their kids. Children are never to be left with people who are not fully trustworthy.If your child plays at a neighbor's home,make sure you know who is there and that a trustworthy adult is in charge.
ENCOURAGEMENT: As you share God’s standard and your concern, lavish your children with affection and encouragement. Children need large doses of affection from their parents to grow up physically, emotionally and spiritually healthy.
Many youths in their search for true love have fallen into pits of despair, addictions, sex abuse and pornography. It’s so wonderful to let them know that true love can only be found in Jesus Christ. But even if they fail,Parents can still offer a helping hand.
When offering encouragement,Parents should speak frankly-but not crassly-with biblical wisdom like the Parents in Proverbs. Take care to never shame or embarrass your child, but treat them respectfully as an emerging fellow adult.
EMPOWERMENT: Parents need to empower their kids with the right materials that will edify the mind and enhance their spiritual growth. Introduce your kids to Christian websites where inspiring articles, poems and biographies are regularly posted. Encourage them to watch Christian channels and to saturate their laptops, smart phones, i-pad with good,edifying sermons and music.Parents should also make it a point of duty to pray for their kids daily.This will go a long way in building them up.
EVANGELISM: Parents should evangelize to their children and lead them to the saving knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ while they are still tender. Our youths should also be encouraged to participate in Internet evangelism. In this way, they will be using their time productively while online. They should also learn to volunteer to do tasks that will help in positively building up the society.
We should always be reminded of our constant need for the infilling of the Holy Spirit to live a life of purity,faith and victory in our digital age.
