Hoe om “skerp” te bly!

Posted: Februarie 16, 2011 in Uncategorized

 Ek hoor vanoggend hierdie oulike verhaaltjie van twee houtkappers.  Een was ‘n bejaarde en die ander een nog ‘n jong knapie.  Op ‘n dag het hul besluit om ‘n kompetisie te hou en te kyk wie kan die meeste bome op een dag afkap.
Die jong seun was sterk en fiks en het glad nie gerus nie.  Hy het gekap dat die byle huil!
Maar die bejaarde het so elke uur vir 15 minute gerus.
Aan die einde van die dag toe die bome getel word het die bejaarde gewen met baie meer bome as die jong seun wat dit glad nie kon verstaan het nie.
Toe hul vir die bejaarde vra hoe dit moontlik is want hy het elke uur vir 15 minute gerus het hy hul geantwoord “Elke keer wat ek gerus het, het ek my byl skerp gemaak”
So werk ons lewe ook.  Raak jy ook nog stil en spandeer tyd by God om jou weer “skerp” te maak vir elke dag se dagtake?  Of hardloop jy net heeltyd aaneen en dink jy, jy is aan die wenkant?
Ons het nodig om meer tyd saam met God te spandeer!


Walk with Faith

Walk with Faith – May thid encourage you always

Don’t spend major time with minor people. If there are people in your life

that continually disappoint you, break promises, stomp on your dreams,

too judgmental, have different values and don’t give their backing during

difficult times … that is not a friend.

To have a friend, be a friend. Sometimes in life as you grow, your friends will either

grow or go. Surround yourself with people who reflect values, goals interests and lifestyle.

When I think of any of my successes, I am thankful to GOD from whom all blessings flow,

and to my family and friends that enrich my life.

Over the years my phone book has changed because I changed for better. At first you think you’re going to be alone, but after a while new people show up in your life that make your life so much sweeter and easier to endure.

If you’re an eagle, don’t hang around chickens:

Chickens Can’t Fly !!

This is one of the best explanations of why God allows pain and suffering that I have seen…

A man went to a barbershop to have his hair cut and his beard trimmed.
As the barber began to work, they began to have a good conversation.
They talked about so many things and various subjects.
When they eventually touched on the subject of God, the barber said:
“I don’t believe that God exists.”

“Why do you say that?” asked the customer. “Well, you just have to go out in the street to realize that God doesn’t exist.
Tell me, if God exists, would there be so many sick people?
Would there be abandoned children?

If God existed, there would be neither suffering nor pain.
I can’t imagine a loving God who would allow all of these things.”
The customer thought for a moment, but didn’t respond because he didn’t want to start an argument.
The barber finished his job and the customer left the shop.

Just after he left the barbershop, he saw a man in the street with long, stringy, dirty hair and an untrimmed beard.
He looked dirty and unkempt. The customer turned back and entered the barber shop again and he said to the barber:
“You know what? Barbers do not exist.”
“How can you say that?” asked the surprised barber.
“I am here, and I am a barber. And I just worked on you!”
“No!” the customer exclaimed. “Barbers don’t exist because
if they did, there would be no people with dirty long hair and untrimmed beards, like that man outside.”

“Ah, but barbers DO exist! That’s what happens when people do not come to me.”
“Exactly!” affirmed the customer. “That’s the point! God, too, DOES exist!
That’s what happens when people do not go to Him and don’t look to Him for help.
That’s why there’s so much pain and suffering in the world.”

If you think God exists, send this to other people—
If you think God does not exist, delete it!
