When we let go of our memory of the word, when we engage in other things that divert our attention from the word, when we do this consistently for a while, we tend to drift away from the truths that we knew or used to know and find ourselves forgetting, neglecting and turning away from the things that made us.
Even when we see some discouragement, we will not relent, reminding ourselves that we are not in this alone. His hands carry us, His ears are open to our call. He will answer us, teaching our hands to war and our fingers to fight. The truth is that even before we began, we have overcome! He won the victory for us already. We just have to enforce the victory in His name.

Many emotions run through the survivors’ minds in the early days of a new year. The most common is the excitement and joy of crossing over.

While enjoying the ‘jolly’ season, it would be wise not to throw all caution to the wind. Shopping can be crazy but remember to watch your spending. Merchants can be very enticing with their special offers at this time, both in the shops and on line stores. It’s good to have a list and follow it as strictly as possible. No spontaneous purchases!

The whole scene was unsettling to say the least. It must have been as a result of the disciples’ fear and troubled minds that He spoke these words of peace to them. ‘Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you’. What powerful words!
We see them every day, wolves clothed in sheep clothing, smiling, laughing, eating and drinking like regular human beings. They engage in sane conversations, engage in business, buy and sell like lucid people. But in the secret of their homes, they shed the skin of sheep and put on their monster outfits.
