Promise of God #54

Psalm 84:11English Standard Version (ESV)

11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield;  the Lord bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly.


Some days ago there was an eclipse. Not every one was lucky to see it but it was happening wether you could see it or not! The same our God shields , bestows favor and honor on those who respect him wether you believe it or not!


God I pray for a strong faith to know that you will always keep to your pomises and help me to make sure that your promises are also for me!

Promises of God # 53

Joshua 23:14English Standard Version (ESV)

14 “And now I am about to go the way of all the earth, and you know in your hearts and souls, all of you, that not one word has failed of all the good things[a] that the Lord your God promised concerning you. All have come to pass for you; not one of them has failed.

Keep fighting the good fight!

Inspired by a fellow-blogger with a post saying “keep fighting the good fight”, I will continue proclaiming the promises of God on my blog not because I write so good but because we can be sure of the promises of God.

When we are brought to doubt we can hold-up the promises of God with belief and remind Satan that he has already lost the battle against our  saviour. Our saviour , “JESUS”   has already won the battle and we are the rightful heirs of  the kingdom of God.

Be aware of this!

Tony A. Smith

Priorities Of LIfe Priorities Of Life

” Every day, either you live by priorities or you live by pressures.  There is no other option.  Either you decide what is important in your life, or you let other people decide what is important in your life.”

Rick Warren “God’s Answers to Life’s Difficult Questions”

I have always said that each of us makes up our mind to do exactly what we want to do.  We may say we don’t have time for this or we don’t have time for that.  If we stop to really think about it, we all make up our minds to do exactly what we want to do don’t we in the end? Don’t let others pressure you in what is important to you.

Growing-up , sometimes a choice to exhange your childish ways for adult ones,

Remembering often the moment the two worlds met,

Often wondering what if …..

When the exchange has taken place there is no way back,

Intimacy with our innerchild therefore not a luxury,

Never knowing when this will end,

Growing-up though longed for brings also regrets!

An un-invited guest !

I was a fulltime consultant apart from being a mom in 2009 when this guest came wandering in my life without an invitation. It was definitely not invited and surely not invited to stay. I had to accept that this un-invited guest would stay and even overstay.

After a while I have learned to accept its stay. However from time to time I am happy to meet people who also have this un-invited guest over because then I realize that what I am experiencing because of this un-invited guest is real. I’m talking about  “(P)rimary (L)ateral (S)clerosis” , which is a motor neuron disease with which I was diagnosed since 2009.

Since my diagnosis I am now more in a wheelchair , I can still use my hands and arms although less coordinated, I still have my speech although slower and less understandable. I have to chew my food more before I can swallow and I have to drink slower not to choke.

Last week I saw the movie “the theory of everything”

I could relate to the symptoms and the feelings. Just as in the movie you can see that important ingredients to have around when dealing with this un-invited guest is love and understanding! The process is for everyone different yet the areas (arms,hands, legs, feet, speech) that are affected are the same.

One of the events that bring joy in my life!


This is a painting on canvas 3 meters wide, made by my daughter “the painter” for an event here in the Netherlands . This quote is of one of the artists of the event and it goes like this:

“Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.” — met Marlou Fernanda Da Silva bij Islemunda, podium van IJsselmonde.
