Sunday Glory!!! – Pray Always

I have been missing in action and I miss my ‘Sunday Glory’ posts. What matters is am back and making the effort to be consistent.
It a New Month and the first half of 2017 is gone, what more can say than to thank God for his mercies, favor and grace.

Our Lighthouse Chapel International Memory Verse of the Week:
1Timothy 2:8 KJV
[8] I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.

I just love the memory Verse for this week because it reminds me of prayers especially during this month on Evangelism .It reminds us that we should pray wherever we find ourselves, in all we do and believe that our Father in Heaven is listening.

Have a great week.

Ethan Kang Stuns in His Photoshoot

Ethan Kang, the Duke as we call him , is my cute nephew and happens to be my inspiration to children photography.Born to us at the right time, he is a symbol of true love and unity. His birth has been so magically To so many family members.

My first baby shot was with him last Christmas, his first Christmas in 2016,  when all I had was the love for pictures and no experience or training.

And here we are with Ethan at 8Months old learning how to crawl, stand and eventually walk. In Semptember he will be one  so get ready for his First Birthday Party!!!

Born Again!!!

For me I can’t say I just met God.I have known Him as long as I could understand, to read and to write.Amazingly I have had a taste of the Catholic Faith because I went to a Catholic Primary School for Seven Years, born to a Protestant (Presbyterian) Mother and had to walk back home from Presbyterian Church Bota to Behind Ambas Bay, Gardens, Limbe.
I learnt how to pray as a family when I spent time with my childhood friends the Achus (Aunty Kay, Ethel, Nina, Lloyd and Mummy Rosemary of blessed memory) just a few weeks before going to college.
I got into contact with the Baptist Faith in Saker Baptist College and this is where I got to really know who God is and will always be.
Through our daily devotions, Sunday school and the Spiritual Emphasis, this school taught me that the only way to live was to start each day with God.
In 2001, I went to the Presbyterian High School in Kumba where Morning & Event Devotion is part of the school program as it in the case with most mission schools.

In 2013 I began fellowshipping at Lighthouse Chapel International and this is where I learnt on what it means to be born again and creating a deep relationship with God.
In a summary I would say it helped to put all what I had learnt in the Catholic, Presbyterian & Baptist School into perspective and into practice.
A lot of people criticize others when they say they are born again and sometimes the newly born again Christians are taken aback when asked what they mean by they are born again.
I will share what I learnt from LCI New Believers School and once I understood salvation I was baptized with water (immersion) and the Holy Spirit (speaking in tongues ) .
Being born again simply implies that you understand what salvation is all about , why , when and how.
I think this is the part where you will need your Bible ,a pen , and a highlighter… I will like to explain this backed by scriptures as I am taught by my Father, Bishop Dag Heward Mills.

In Romans 3:23 we learn that we all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God and Psalm 51:1 gives us a deep understanding of how we came into contact with sin
‘Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.’

We deserve to be punished and we shall be punished if we continue to hold the truth in unrighteousness.The wages of sin is death – Romans 6:23.

No one is judging you or me but our Father in Heaven knows it all .Look into Romans 1:18 -32 and be honest to yourself, are you for God or against God?
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

The conclusion is we are all sinners but because of the Love which God had for his beautiful creation mankind, He sent His only Son that whosoever believe that in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life – John 3:16.

A Scripture that most of us know by heart and were taught right from Sunday School. The Verse 17 of this Scripture is usually left out, but amazingly it reiterates God’s intention towards us ” For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”
Usually, we condemn ourselves for the wrong things we have done , the goodnews is that Jesus did came for us sinners , for us to turn away from sin and be saved.

We become born again when believe that Jesus died , resurrected for the forgiveness of our sins (Hebrews 9:22) and receiving him as our personal savior which is clearly enacted in John 1:12
“But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the
sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:”

Being Born Again is fulfillment of the Bible in Romans 10:9,10
” 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

* After this confession you have become a new creation 2 Corinthians 5:17
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are
passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
* All your sins past, present and future are remitted, I am not the one saying so it is what the Bible tells us in Hebrews 9:12 and I love the way The Message Bible puts it “He also bypassed the sacrifices consisting of goat and calf blood, instead using his own blood as the price to set us free once and for all.”
* You are now a son or daughter of God – John 1:12 “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:”
* You have eternal life – John 5:24 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”

The Big Question is who then is Born Again?
A Born Again Christian is someone who has invited Jesus Christ into his life and is determined to live a life controlled by the Bible(Word) and the Holy Spirit.

Do you Know Jesus as your Lord and Personal Savior?
If you don’t then now is the time to turn to Jesus wherever you are and say the sinner’s prayer to God not to man:
“Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”

Learn About Autism

April is a month set aside to create awareness about Autism , in that light  I will do a few posts on Autism this month through reading and with the help of my friends through whom I got to know about Autism and on ways to care for children with Autism.

Honestly, I had never gone out of my way to read or learn anything about Autism until last year when my friend Mildred T Sandrino introduced me to Danielle Miyemeck who has an NGO called “L’emotions de l’Autisme” and through this Organisation I was able to read and learn about Autism.Last Year I wore blue to support this course.

Danielle who is a mother to an austistic cutie battling with raising him up appropriately, getting a school for him and lots more so she decide to join other movements to create awareness a and to promote education in african children who are autistic especially in Cameroon.

To commemorate the World Autism Month and Day join Emotions de L’Autisme  this weekend in Douala to learn and support a good cause.This Month wear blue and tag #LIUB #EA_wearblue

Looking forward to having you at the conference (01.04.2017) & the walk (02.04.2017)

Do You Thank God For Your Health?!!!

Sometimes we forget to say thank you to God especially for good healthy Did you remember to say a word of prayer this morning to the Almighty God, I will solicit that you take a few minutes to say thank you God for good health and for everything he has done for you and that he is doing for you.

When was the last time you had a headache, when was the last time you felt nauseated or when was the last time you went to the hospital ? Imagine that there is someone who feels sick every day , whose only place of comfort maybe the hospital, someone who need a purification of blood by dialysis, as a substitute for the normal function of the kidney.

I met Julien Kome at the General Hospital in Douala, Cameroon. A 32 year old Cameroonian and mother of three children who has been suffering from the kidney disease and undergoing blood purification by dialysis for the last 5years. What caught my attention was the fact that at a point in her life when her children have been taken away from her and plans of her wedding to the father of her children were cancelled because of the kidney disease she still sums up the strength to do something to support her with paying her weekly dialysis session.

Julien Kome & Muenge Nkwanyuo in support of The Iya Foundation

She learnt to use her hands from school so today she uses beads to make bracelets, necklaces, sandals and slippers to sell and raise money for her treatment.

Through the support of the Iya Foundation and a host of Doctors including Doctor Florence Iyok Tarh she was able to do the ‘Act4Kidneys’ bracelets to support the campaign of creating awareness about the kidney disease and organ donation. The Act for Kidneys Bracelets are available in Cameroon and in the USA (Iya Bekondo ) as from 1 000 FCFA to the extend which only your heart can tell.

Act for Kidneys Bracelets

She does slippers , sandals, necklaces & bracelets which can be customized to suit your needs ; can be used as souvenirs for corporate branding, weddings, birthdays and all sorts of events. By buying her products you are supporting a woman in need who has made herself useful.

Sunday Glory!!!

Sunday Glory!!! On  My Space , Our Space is where I do a rich blend of my love for God by sharing our LCI Memory Verse of the Week alongside  my fashion and style in line with what I wear to church and what you can wear to church. Feel free to send me details of your Sunday Glory  ( terms & conditions  apply) , it could be featured on the Blog because it’s my space and your space too.
Our Lighthouse Chapel International Memory Verse of the Week

                                              John 8:12
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

This Scripture should guide us this week and be put in practice. Jesus is the light and if we believe in him we will follow him. In our everyday life brightness is important, when you return home from work and reach out to open the door to your house the first thing you will touch is the switch to the light in that room or staircase , it is the same way that we have to have The Light (Jesus) in our life , when you wake up in the morning , follow him (sing and pray) , and live according to the teachings in the Bible then you can’t help but to light up your life.

Mediate on this in the course of the week, make a special commitment to read your Bible every and have a quiet time with Jesus and of course you will experience his light of life over you.

I am following his light the reason for the joy and peace.
