testy situations…

tests are different from temptation…

tests are meant to prove one, to see if they can move from one level to another…temptations deal with soliciting someone to do evil…./enticing someone to do evil.

Just like tests and exams we deal with in school are not really what we look forward to..cos they are not all that pleasant..i never looked forward to exams in school..i hope that changes in future.. J.. in the same way..i think life tests are not all that pleasant… and before I go too far I would like to add that not everybody in life has to undergo this tests I’m talking about..these tests are the ones we pass with faith, patience, love and steadfastness…

You know very well that the sellers in the kiosks that we buy stuff from at lunch time.. don’t sit to take tests with us in class…this is because they have not decided to go through the “school” we were enrolled in …so also ..if someone has not decided to live his life the same way I have decided to live mine..we will never and ever sit for the same life tests..cos we didn’t enroll in the same “school”..

…for instance...this sounds simple but..if the kind of life I have decided to live ..does not allow me to harbor a grudge in my mind/allow me to revenge when offended.. so when I am faced with this kind of situation..and I decide I won’t answer the question/situation by what my teacher has taught me..which is to walk in love, say my mind to the offending party and forgive,…then..i get an automatic 0/100…this simply means..i will need to take that test again..because it’s part of moving forward/higher..as a christian..we need to grow up and mature in our walk with God.. cos anything that does not grow dies..anything that’s stagnant..losses every form of essence its supposed to have..

..there are a million and one situations that confront us daily..you can fill in the blanks....and I think It would have been sweeter or easier..if these kind of tests are pre announced..but unlike in school..life tests are not pre-announced…i know we’ve been and we go through various situations, but if you have chosen to live your life by Gods word..then you need to remain faithful..knowing that the God is faithful..and won’t let any situation that’s going to finish you land at your doorstep…

If you believe God is good you know He is not the type of teacher that would bring questions meant for M.Sc students to you who is still in level 3 of B.Sc..

..now john 15 is coming to mind.. 1I AM the True Vine, and My Father is the Vinedresser.

2Any branch in Me that does not bear fruit [that stops bearing] He cuts away (trims off, takes away); and He cleanses and repeatedly prunes every branch that continues to bear fruit, to make it bear more and richer and more excellent fruit.

3You are cleansed and pruned already, because of the word which I have given you [the teachings I have discussed with you].

4Dwell in Me, and I will dwell in you. [Live in Me, and I will live in you.] Just as no branch can bear fruit of itself without abiding in (being vitally united to) the vine, neither can you bear fruit unless you abide in Me.

5I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing.  pls read the rest here

O.k peoplez..did i talk too much..? :) ..have a great week

the puzzles..

i live with a lot of questions

daily they come ... daily they leave

some leave with answers ... some just leave

some leave but..i know they'll be back, at some point..

they will ask of me an answer, for without an answer they won't go to thier graves..

why do they come , in the first place ... i wonder...

just at that point ... when i feel like i am the captian of my army and the emperor in charge

you come again ... just to remind me that theres such a thing as a puzzle....

maybe ..to tell me that life is all about puzzles...

puzzles ..puzzles puzzles... its so dark in here...

but i see the Light...and all of a sudden , I am not so clueless..

i feel as sure footed as a deer, the plot seems so clear....

i see the Light ... i am the emperor that decides what script is played out...

the questions fire me up and the puzzles inspire me...

they looked like gaints initially ... but they were inspired by a mirage of some sort...

i see clearly now...
