(The following inset was taken from one of my diary entries on Penzu, POMPS!) Firstly I would love to express how excited I am about this app! I intend on writing daily in this journal. Alrighty, today was a wonderful day. The church service went well and the Elder Hlatshwayo ministered on the importance of a father-son relationship, basically I was blessed by the word! Theeeeen while blogging on pinterest I was intrigued by a quote I saw, empowering stuff really! I will attach it because I believe it will inspire someone else. Tomorrow is another day and I have full faith that God will give me the opportunity and strength to make the best of it! (End of inset)
So basically I found this so empowering really! Creating the opportunities we want to have. It’s so unfortunate that as Christians we tend to sit around and wait for opportunities to come our way! We may call it an exercise of faith, but in reality it’s an exploitation of God’s ability to provide. The word says “What good is it, dear brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but don’t show it by your actions? 14Can that kind of faith save anyone?, 17 So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless, 24So you see, we are shown to be right with God by what we do, not by faith alone.) – James 2, please do read from verse 14 to 24.
Sitting and waiting for an opportunity to come your way kills your faith and is a well expressed lack of creativity and laziness!!! Those with ears (well and eyes in this case) hear!
