Rescuing Hug

The usual thing i always do when im in front of the computer is to check my email regularly, to see if there is any important thing that i need to comply.  Then I check my spam emails and of course what will i do with those junk emails and that is to just delete it, but before doing so, one email caught my attention about this....

Twin girls, Brielle and Kyrie, were born 12 weeks ahead of their due date. Needing intensive care, they were placed in separate incubators.

Kyrie began to gain weight and her health stabilized. But Brielle, born only 2 lbs, had trouble breathing, heart problems and other complications. She was not expected to live.

Their nurse did everything she could to make Brielle’s health better, but nothing she did was helping her. With nothing else to do, their nurse went against hospital policy and decided to place both babies in the same incubator.

She left the twin girls to sleep and when when she returned she found a sight she could not believe. She called all the nurses and doctors and this is what they saw (refer to the picture above). 

As Brielle got closer to her sister, Kyrie put her small little arm around her, as if to hug and support her sister. From that moment on, Brielle’s breathing and heart rate stabilized and her health became normal.

From then on, they decided to keep both babies together, because when they were together they kept each other alive.

And today they are 15 years old.

Moral: So remember, when you are going through something, that you’re not alone. You’re within an arm’s length of a sister who will be there to support you. But best and above all, you have a God who loves you no matter what. Who are you within arm’s length of today? Think of someone who might need your love and encouragement. Stay close to them, because you never know if that moment will save their life.

Crowd without Him

Sometimes being a Christian, a follower of His teachings, will mean that people automatically don’t like you because of what you stand for. Sometimes they will attack you verbally or physically for sticking with God instead of agreeing with their carnal drives. Sometimes standing for God will mean that you are standing alone.

But it is better to be alone with God than in a crowd without Him.

But we were all made to shine like light and lead those people that are in the dark. No, He didn’t make us to be superior - we are just like everybody else - except we have an intimate relationship with God. We know what God wants of us, we know that God has placed us wherever we are for a reason.

Expecting too much

Sometimes we expect things too much out of man (or woman). Expecting too much out of this world.
And most of the time when we do, we eventually get disappointed because everything is not the way we wanted it to be.
This is why we should leave everything up to God and we should know that He will give the BEST for us. Because we know that His love for us is so great.
Why should we expect things from this world when we know that it’s going to backfire?
When we put everything in God’s hands, put our worries and desires, put our faith and trust - there will be less disappointments in our lives because God will never disappoint us.
God will give us peace. Hope. Love.
“The Lord is good, A stronghold in the day of trouble; And He knows those who trust in Him” (Nahum 1:7).
Sometimes we think we know what’s best for us. Maybe even push through so many things like yelling at our parents that they don’t understand! That your relationship with someone (like a boyfriend or girlfriend) is meant to be, and you don’t care what they think.
We usually don’t care what others think because we just want happiness, wanting to satisfy our worldly needs.
That happiness won’t last. Whatever it is you’re going through - whether it is a relationship, a struggle with a job, school or study, family troubles, etc - leave it up to God and do not expect more out of your self. Do not rely on your own choices, nor other man (or woman) before consulting it unto God.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths” (Proverbs 3:5,6).

Be Ready

Ok, so you may not be married quite yet - may not even be thinking about it - but one day you might. But before we get there, God can still teach us something for today from this verse: ‘Live happily with the woman you love…’ Wow, get that! God doesn’t just want us to enjoy good relationships, He wants us to have relationships we can relish - where we’re totally loving every minute. God really does want you to have great friends and build great relationships, the kind that make you smile and make your life easier to handle!
So if your life is a little low on the friendship front today, pray. Ask God for some great relationships, knowing that’s exactly what He wants for you too. Ask Him for help in finding the right friends and choosing the ones that will build you up, not drag you down. God promises: ‘I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you’ (Psalm 32:8 NLT).
And while you’re at it, if you’re hoping one day to be married, why not start praying now for the your future husband or wife. Talk to God about it, knowing He cares about this too. Ask Him to help you now to grow into the best wife or husband you can be so you will be ready to ‘Live happily with the [one] you love…’

Moving Past Sinful Failure

by Randy Kilgore
How should we handle moments of faith-failure, when we’ve damaged the kingdom of God in the eyes of our friends and family or dishonored God in our actions?

We can learn from King David after his humiliation in the Bathsheba scandal. Though the terrible consequences of that sin could not be avoided, he found his way back to a relationship with God that made it possible for him to continue to serve Him. We too can find our way back.
David’s pattern in 2 Samuel 12 serves us well: We need to declare our error candidly (v.13) and seek God’s forgiveness. Then we can ask God that others be spared the consequences of our actions (v.16). Finally, we need to recognize that sometimes the consequences simply cannot be avoided and must be endured. While we always mourn those consequences, we can’t allow them to so consume us that we cease to be servants of God (vv.20-23).
Satan not only delights in the moment of our failure but also in the spiritual inactivity that sometimes snares us in our remorse. When we’ve blown our witness, we are and should be humbled. But we should not multiply the damage by retreating into silence and obscurity as ambassadors of Christ. We can move past failure.
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9
