Virtually all the writings have come about through my heart’s desire to draw near and know the heart of my Heavenly Father. This desire has been significantly aided by “Leading the Way (LTW),” – a Christian ministry with Dr. Michael Youssef entirely committed to passionately proclaiming uncompromising truth of God’s word.
There is only one way that you can know what your Heavenly Father is like, and that is in His Word. For it written, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” – John 1:1… There is only one manifestation of what your Heavenly Father is like, and that is His Son the Lord Jesus Christ. For it is written, “The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us, and we have seen His glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” – John 1:14.
There is only one source from which you can understand how to relate to your Heavenly Father, and that is the Holy Bible. We learn from people in the Bible, we learn from examples, from their sins, failures, repentance and their godly lives. But if we ever just learn from people and miss comprehending the character of God, and what God wants us to know about Him in these stories then we miss everything.
At school, we often kept a notebook handy to take notes on the teacher’s lecture. How much more important is it for us not only to take notes, but also to discern when we see, listen, or read about what is been proclaimed about God, or what God is teaching us through people? When something is important, you write it down. For this reason, God gave us His living Word – The Holy Bible.
I don’t write theories, I don’t know how to do that. When I get to the word of God, God shines that light upon my life. In His light, I see light (Psalm 36:9) which shines right into my messy heart. “For the word of God is living and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” – Hebrews 4:12… The cry of my heart is to tell of the great love of my Heavenly Father for as long as I live. I’m always encouraged by the following words song by Keith Green:
Just to be clear, there is nothing wrong with looking forward to a reward when we are busy serving the Lord. In fact, it is very biblical to do so. I am looking forward to my reward, and work everyday looking for those five heavenly crowns (the imperishable crown – 1 Corinthians 9.24-25; the crown of rejoicing – 1 Thessalonians 2:19; the crown of righteousness – 2 Timothy 4:8; the crown of glory – 1 Peter 5:4; and the crown of life – Revelation 2:10) not so that I can put them on my head and take pride in my accomplishment, but so that on that great day, I am going to take all those crowns and place them at His feet (Jesus) and say:
“You alone O Lord my God are worthy to receive all the glory.”
By sharing all the writings, I trust God will and is able to use it all to bless, comfort, encourage and help minds to be transformed into the likeness of Christ. When Christ Jesus said (in Matthew 4:4), “Man shall not leave by bread alone, but by every word that comes out the mouth of God” He is saying that the word of God will:
- Feed your soul when you’re hungry
- Sustain you when you’re faint
- Lift you up when you’re down
- Give you power to say no to temptation
- Give you strength to stand alone if you must
- Carry you when no one else can
- Satisfy your deepest longing and desire.
A little bit more about me:
I am simply nothing but dust.
Shall the clay say to its maker, “What are you moulding?”
I am what God says I am. For me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
I have a keen interest in STEM subjects and a reasonable level of understanding relating to aerospace structures and systems design. I am always willing to learn, and not afraid to make mistakes or fail. In all I do, I endeavour to work wholeheartedly at it as for the Lord and not for men. All of my accomplishments are really not my accomplishment at all, they are God’s accomplishment through me.
I love playing chess, listening to music, and my favourite musical instrument is the piano which I never intend to give up learning to play. I used to love drawing when I was younger, and hope to one day get back into it. I do love being in the great outdoors especially on my bike, and seeing the ocean is always a sight for sore eyes. Often, I find myself lost in wonder like the psalmist who penned down the following words:
If God wills, I aim to travel somewhere new every year and explore the beauty of this side of heaven, and I’m thankful to God that I’m currently on my way in doing so. I mostly look forward to spending eternity exploring all of God’s creation and also long to hear and sing the music of Heaven. Above all else, no matter where I may go, or whom I may meet, or what I may see, do, accomplish, earn, or be given to me, there is nothing that would ever even come close to the greatness of knowing Jesus Christ my Lord.
To God alone be all honour and glory.
