Today I just want to take this opportunity to thank Minuteman Press, Trichardt Street, Boksburg, Gauteng, South Africa for all their hard work.
I use them for all my books and other printing and their service and work is excellent. To the best of my knowledge, they are the only Minuteman franchise that prints books properly and at reasonable prices that allow me to sell quality books to my readers.

Week 3: Seal your lips against evil

Week 3: Seal your lips against evil

Scripture: 1 Peter 3:10

Contents:

For, “Whoever would love life and see good days must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from deceitful speech…”

God gave His Son as the ultimate act of love to us. If God was not consistent in this act, then He would not be trustworthy.

Likewise, it goes for us, as His children, created in His image. When we speak evil, our words become void. If I don’t love myself according to His word, then evil would reign my mind and spout from my mouth like filth.

What you speak about yourself is the true reflection of your thoughts. It does not show that you believe in Trinity’s divine love and no one would believe in your actions. Your words cancel the actions and you become hallow.

When you grasp the Father’s love for yourself, you would know, without any doubt that you are worthy to be loved.

Wickedness, evil, doubt, cursing, and hateful speech must be holstered to truly grasp His love, Mercy and Grace. Otherwise, you will be like a snake with a two-forked tongue and speak death over yourself.

John 3:16 must become real in you. Jesus loves me, a refrain that touches your mind, body, soul and tongue. And, you should accept it as real. It should be clear of His love for you in your daily walk.

Once it drowns your fears and sorrows, the ultimate act of Love becomes a way of life.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, your Love is real. Show me the true meaning of John 3:16. Help me apply it in my words and actions. I am worthy of your love. Seal my lips when I want to speak foolishly, without thinking. Show me the blunder so that I can change it. Your love is my goal. I want to be your love in every area of my life.

I want to be the reason people flocks to You. My words a welcome and refreshing fragrance of your manifested love.

In Jesus Name, Amen.

Week 2: Self-entitlement

Week 2: Self-entitlement

Scripture: 1 Peter 3:9: “Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.”

Contents:

Are your life an example of Jesus?

Do you act on impulse, like a Peter of old?

Do you think you deserve to take revenge?

If the answer is yes to each question, then you are failing the scripture and you will not inherit a blessing. It is that simple.

Self-entitlement runs wildly in our nation. We think it entitle us to many things without changing our ways or putting in the effort to act righteously. When we stand on our rights we become poorer and poorer and we wonder why.

Jesus was entitled to rule on this earth, but through His life He showed power differently. He showed us to walk in authority without the title of the worldly king position. He knew who he was/is in God.

In the garden, when Peter came to his ‘defence’ He had the authority to call down a legion of warrior angels and the story would have ended differently.

But, because of His gentle way, He hung on the Cross and inherited much more than the devil planned. He floored Satan totally.

He is the King of this world but has given us authority so that we can receive our inheritance.

We need to follow that example of meekness and be a blessing.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, I deserve nothing accept your grace and mercy. Father, you know my needs and my situation therefor give me the wisdom to do it correctly so that I, too, can inherit the earth and be a blessing.  Help me see the angels fighting on my behalf. Give me the insight and wisdom to be strong in this situation I face. Put a guard to my tongue so that I won’t act on impulse but out of love just as Your Son, Jesus Christ, had showed. Amen.

Monday Inspirational 

Scripture: (NIV) 1 Peter 3:8 “Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind.”  

According to the scripture in 1 Peter 3 harmony, love, sympathy, compassion, and humbleness walks hand in hand. If you lack in the one, you lack in all. Love is a small, four-letter word, with a big responsibility.

Love is not a cliché, but an action. If you don’t put action to it, you won’t get the results you desperately seek. To utter the word irresponsible or say it just to manipulate is to mistreat the very nature of love.

Love is harmony

Love is sympathy

Love is compassionate

Love is humble

 Love is all the above and so much more. When you study the life of Jesus Christ, you will notice servanthood, empathy, but most of all His desire to remain obedient to His Father. He said to Mary, his mother in Luke 2:49, “Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?” it was so important to spend time with his Father that he was willing to disobey his earthly parents at that moment.

Only after that, he went home to be obedient to them. His life was the very nature of Love. This is an important lesson for us when we want to walk in His Divine Love. Obedience to the Father comes first, and the rest will follow. Love comes from that obedience. Without it, Jesus couldn’t walk to the cross and lay His life down for us.

The Love of the Father compelled him to honour his wishes; even unto death.

Only when we understand the heart of the Father can we submit and become His love and use it in accordance with the scripture in 1 Peter 3:8.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, you are Love. Show me the true meaning of your Love. Help me understand how to walk in humbleness, compassion, sympathy, and harmony. Let Jesus Christ’s life show me the way so that I can walk steadfastly in His footsteps and walk-in Love daily. Being absolutely one with His example. Amen.”

 You are blessed and highly favoured

Love at War, an inspirational love story is available online.

Love at War, an inspirational love story is available online.

I can compare a book to life.

It is the continuous shape of a story until it satisfy you with the result. The reason many writers get a god complex after a while. You are in charge of fictitious characters’ lives. Giving them obstacles to overcome and goals to reach. As in life, they try to steer the story away from the goal. At times it works, and at times it doesn’t. In the end, you get to the place you want to be with some crafty twists.

Love at War is very close to my heart. I could see its progress as a direct relationship with my life. Its beginnings traced back to 2011.

It has endured many changes, rewriting, edits and feedback. It was cut, divided into a series, combined into one again with a lot of emptiness in between where I first had to grow before I could complete the story. I can say with absolute truth it has stood the test of time.

It is a love story but touches many topics within the 600 pages. Yes I know, it is a lot but pertinent to the story… believe me.

Inside the book.

An Inspirational love story and women’s fiction

Faith is the underlining thread that keeps the story going – I had to understand the lessons first before I could apply it in the book.

This book is not for a sensitive reader: rape and abuse feature. I have softened it considerably but we see the humiliating act for what it is. The question is could the character overcome the devastation? How did she do it?

I also touched abuse in the military. Highlighted by our fears and shortcomings there are still people that think that they can control what happens with a woman’s body. It leaves devastation on its path. If people do not speak up it will remain a problem.

Abortion is another topic and an important element to the story. Each woman has the right to a choice. What it does to a person seldom talked about.

I filled it with adventure and interesting characters to help the plot along. A story where love will be tested.

Genre:

Christian fiction, love story, adventure, women’s literature, abusive relationships, abduction, abduction rape, abuse and rape, abuse in military, abuse issues, adventure book, adventure love, reproductive rights.

Love at War

Synopsis

Their enemies tried to outsmart them. Obedience their only defence.

Whisked to picturesque Valetta, a lonely nurse met her soul connection. It set the bar in a stirring plot of spiritual and physical survival as a determined warlord in Africa and a cunning wife in America trapped them. The healing sands of Iraq, their only hope.

Passionate about her work, war-torn South Sudan offered Sonia Main peace. When a man from her past confronted her once more, she had a choice to make. A choice that would influence her life.

Could Sonia let go of the past and see a new future?

Would her dreams continue to haunt her? Or would the warm sun of Africa burn away her fears?

Curt McGee was a man bound by honour and duty. It took him away from home for long periods of time.

Caught in infidelity, Curt’s wife’s thinking left him astounded, shocked even. His children prey to an unthinkable enemy.

Would he get beyond his wife’s betrayal?

Could he save his children?

What decisions should he make?

Co-workers devised a plan: book a flight to enjoy a weekend in Malta. An island in the Mediterranean Sea that offered tranquillity and peace to weary souls.

Here, two worlds connect, and the result would change them both for eternity.

Meeting by chance, love confronted them, a love so great that they could not deny it. But time played a trick and demanded a price. A price so high that it would strip them of everything before they could experience the joy of a future.

Obedience was better than sacrifice, revealed the pages of the Holy Book. Would they yield or follow their own way?

They could not run or hide from the onslaught. Their enemies’ attacks growing in intensity. Crafty tricks added to the confusion, their fears real. It stripped them of their hopes and dreams. They could only go one way.

When Tau Gbadamosi met Sonia, he had a tough time understanding his feelings. War ravished his country. The enormous plight for help too great for one man or one fight. Faced with loyalty, he had to decide. A decision that would cost him. Would he fail the test?

Africa’s hopes and dreams burned brightly in the harsh African sun. Poverty and lack the driving force for many ‘do-gooders’. It left the continent in a starving grip. But when a warlord sets his sight on the Red Cross nurse, all hell broke loose. No one could stand in his way.

Only God could stop him.
