This picture caught my attention & it reminded me about christians- that despite the fact that we are vulnerable weaklings- yet in His eyes, we are warriors. Battlefront warriors.
Although, I would re- phrase the text with :
" WHAT MATTERS MOST IS HOW GOD SEES YOU "
As christians, we do not look to ourselves but to Christ, and that we are His reflection here on earth, and if we look to Him He will supply us all the strenght that we need. It's just lovely isn't it ? That despite ourselves, God chose us to be His vessel, His image in this day and age. What a privelege, what an honor ! Praise the Lord.
Ephesians 6:12-13
12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

FROM MY HEART TO YOURS...

Dear Blog- reader,

Welcome to my page !
I do hope you read on and I pray it serves as a blessing to you. If you find yourself encouraged and blessed, then I have not laboured in vain, so to speak. I just have one purpose for PURE FAITH - I just wanted to share you my experiences with Him from day to day and to let you know that He isn't a mythical figure, that our God is alive in our midst, today, that He has redeemed you by His blood and that He is offering us Salvation and eternal life with Him if we choose to. It's free !

As we all know, the internet is an excellent medium of sending messages across to thousands & thousands of people, so I thought to myself somehow, someone would stumble upon this blog and...well, it just might change somebody's life, or even give a glimmer of light & hope to somebody's darkness, a timely encouragement perhaps ? so I said, why not ?

I remember when I started this blog, two years ago- I really don't know where to start, I don't even know what to name it. But then- I thought the meaning of my name KATHERINE means PURE and I'll be blogging about my FAITH in the Lord Jesus...so I decided on the title of PURE FAITH.

And this year will be year 3 for my blog and I am really glad it lasted this long. Also, I've decided to steer clear of putting ads in this one because the focus should be the sharing...and according to my stats, which I decided to keep to myself, I'm having a fair share of readership.
I have tweaked my template, as you can see, but I still have some stuff I'd like to add on it...it's a slow process as I am not really a pro, it's a series of trial & error. But it's all good. I'm happy.

Thanks blog- reader, for taking the time and I truly hope somehow you found something useful and helpful whilst browsing my page.
God bless you !

Kaye

We always thought that only God can bless us but let me tell you friend- We can bless God too, indeed we can. How, you say ? by testifying of His goodness and faithfulness in our lives ! I know, I know...I too found it very nerve wracking to stand in front of other people and speak and it took me awhile to be able to overcome that fear. But that is the least thing we could do for Him and He deserves it don't you think ?
The God that we serve is a person, He can feel. In fact He gets hurt too...so that also means He can be pleased as well.
I thank the Lord Jesus that He helped me understand that testifying is part of our worship to Him. He uses it to bless others, it serves as evidence to the unbeliever that yes, indeed God is alive ! that He answers prayers, that if He has done it for him/her, He can do it for me...
For fellow believers, it truly serves as a blessing and encouragement and a source of pride too- Hey, that is the God that I serve ! He is our Jehovah- Jireh ! He is our faithful, living God ! Amen. It increases our faith.


You know what ? whenever I hear someone testify, my heart thumps with joy, no kidding and most of the time I get teary because that's God...God changed this man or woman. God heals, God answers prayers, see ? it really touches my heart and I know all believers feel that way, whenever we see God's imprints in another's life. It's just remarkable. Even with what He does in my life- I still am at awe.

And it's important to testify when you feel led by God to do so too, we don't just stand up and yak away...we have to be led by the Holy Spirit, otherwise it wouldn't serve His purpose and He wouldn't be too pleased about it either. Many times I felt urged to testify and yet I let the opportunity slip by and then I'd feel like I have grieved the Lord because I did not act on His leading , then again there are times when I testify just for the sake of having something to say but of course I grieve Him again because there was no leading of the Spirit, see ? so we have to wait until He gives us the go signal- we'll know when to testify.

Also, giving our testimonies and experiences with Jesus is not confined in church alone, every Sunday. If God leads us to speak to somebody about Him - then act on it because we are His voice, we are God's eyes and ears, we are His body on this earth. What may seem to be a simple testimony or thought for you may literally save somebody else's soul and of course you won't know about it, only the Lord knows.
So, let us bless the Lord with all that is within us-
not just with songs,
not just with hymns,
but with a life surrendered unto Him so the Lord can use it for others. Amen !
Because as the scripture says-

" It becometh us to fulfill all righteousness..." Matt. 3: 15
