Devotional: God of the Waters

Reading: Psalm 77
When the waters [at the Red Sea and the Jordan] saw You, O God, they were afraid; the deep shuddered also, for [all] the waters SAW YOU.17 The clouds poured down water, the skies sent out a sound [of rumbling thunder]; Your arrows went forth [in forked lightning].18 The voice of Your thunder was in the whirlwind, the lightnings illumined the world; the earth trembled and shook.19 Your way [in delivering Your people] was through the sea, and Your paths through the great waters, yet Your footsteps were not traceable, but were obliterated.20 You led Your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.- AMPC

Marked: v16 "When the waters [at the Red Sea]] saw You, O God, they were afraid; the deep shuddered also, for the waters SAW YOU. AMPC"

When Moses raised his rod, that was not what nature saw. Nature perceived God willing a miracle and in recognition and obedience, nature defied itself; nature resisted nature & forced open a pathway of salvation for God's people.

In times of frustration I realize that I grow discouraged because I depend on my abilities and desire to work things out. I am blessed whenever the Holy Spirit puts sense back into me and I realize that in yieldedness, I am able to see the greatness of God at work in my circumstances. God has no limits and I must keep remembering that no opposition will hinder the plans He wills to accomplish in my life and through my life.

Today I pray for softheartedness, so that I can stay close to Him, walking His path for me.

Container Gardening: Planting KangKong in Pots (Water Spinach)

Kang kong is a well-known leafy vegetable used in many Philippine dishes. It is quite easy to grow they say. There was a time when you can find kangkong patches on most streets in the neighborhood. It is also called water spinach or swamp cabbage. It thrives in wet, moist areas. Many grow it solely in water. It quickly grows under sunny spots but carers should keep the soil moist. Else, it may die. Some tips: Not much intstructions on planting. Just bury the seed and keep the soil moist or muddy.  Kangkong grows all year round. Cut maybe an inch or two above the soil for continued regrowth and harvesting. Winter may see your plant dying but often, it regrows by spring. You may fertilize with nitrogen twice a month. You may harvest whole plants at about 1 to 2 months. Kangkong has the tendency to spread. Grow in a container for easy maintenance or harvest whole plants to control your supply. It is best to use potting soil for your containers. Putting regular soil in restric

What Does Romans 8:28 Mean About All Things Work Together For Good?

All things work together for good Romans 8:28 is a well-known verse that Christians usually memorize or list down under "God's Promises." It says, "We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God:  those who are called according to His purpose." Is this really a promise from God? Is this a sure promise that we can claim? Is Romans 8:28 true? Or is the Bible lying in this particular verse? Because, by experience, people know that NOT all things turn out good in the end. So, what exactly does this Scripture mean? And is it for everyone? Let's take a closer look at Romans 8:28 and understand what the verse is actually telling us today.

Bullmastiff: All Wrinkly and Sweet Giant

We have this pet bullmastiff and I’m sure I don’t uniquely feel this way; like other dog owners, I feel our Simba is one of a kind. He has his ways, quirks and all that, which gives him this distinct identity and character. We named him Simba, which means “Lion”. He was an ugly pup. I almost wanted to back out from purchasing him at the kennel. He didn’t look like a regular bullmastiff, no wrinkles, no large frame. He was thin, lean, and all straight and flat. Characteristic of normal Bullmastiffs , he was guarded at first, a bit aloof and doubtful of people and surroundings. It took him over two months to feel more at ease in our home, to freely walk around without being easily spooked, and to trustingly accept our spontaneous pats on his forehead. He wasn’t affectionate for a long time. You would have to initiate physical contact. Many times when we called, he wouldn’t come. And when we approached him, he would move somewhere else. The Bullmastiff is one dog breed you woul
