You may say..." I've nothing to offer God."
Well..God just needs an empty or broken vessel. He'll take you remould you into a vessel of His choice of and fill you with "all" of Him and use you for His Glory!

🌸Jeremiah18:4 "And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter; so he made it again into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to make."

Nothing means as much as... 🍃 Being there with someone when they are walking the most difficult path.
🍃 Being an inspiration when one loses hope, 🍃 Speaking a word of encouragement when they feel like giving up. 🍃 Wiping a tear, whispering a prayer or just being there for one facing a battle means a lot.
🌾We all go through difficult time, we all face painful situations.
🌾Thank God people who are there to hold a candle or our hand or lift us up in their prayers and words of encouragement!
🍃It is sure better to go to a house of mourning than dancing!
🍃Today let us be there for someone who has lost hope, lost the way or in pain.
🍃They may be just close by or miles away, but still our words, presence and prayers can bless them!!
Be a blessing!

🍃"Anxiety (Worry) in a man's heart weighs it down, but a good (cheerful) word makes it glad." #Proverbs12:25

Life is hard but not impossible to carry on....
Life is God's gift to us and how we spend our life matters, for it soon it will be gone and be lost forever.
Life has its share of ups and downs, tears and smiles, joy and sorrow, success and failures but it is worth living!👍

God never misses our single tear, or our silent prayer, He notices our every sigh and understands how we feel deep within.

#Hope is not just an emotion but a way of life!
When things around doesn't look good, we constantly face failures, discouragement and fear holds us back;
🌷It is hope that helps us smile in the dark...
🌷It is hope that gives us strength to press on...
🌷It is hope that helps us to believe there is light at the end of the tunnel...
So always hope tomorrow will be a better day!
Good Night!
My hope is in my Lord Jesus!

🌸"See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut."
Revelation 3: 8
May doors that had been closed to stop God's blessings, breakthroughs, healing, promotions etc be opened for us as we walk in obedience to God's Word and in His way, through this month.
Times of refreshing, fruitfullness, rejoicing....on the way....
Because God will turn our mourning into dancing!
He will anoint our head with the oil of gladness..
And our deserts will bloom!
Have a blessed month!

It is only when we stand close to someone enduring suffering, facing tough battles, humiliation, defeat, loss, failure, abuse will we know and feel their pain.
It is only when we stretch our hands to lift the fallen we will see their tears.
Lord break our hearts for what breaks yours!

As little children we learnt in school, "Early to bed and early to rise makes us healthy, wealthy & wise".

But today sleep a rare commodity and we don't even realize the damage lack of sleep, staying up late nights does to us.

It is only when we sleep well, we are fit and then we can work well, earn good!

Let us sleep well , stay healthy!

Read the following article.

Every morning, I wake up wanting to curl up in the cocoon I made for myself with my comforter and go back to sleep. I snooze my alarm at least three times and chug several cups of coffee upon arriving at work. I'm not a morning person. That is, I've been a night owl for years, hitting the sheets anytime between 12 and 3 a.m. on a normal night. Unfortunately however, for me and my fellow late nighters, staying up late could actually be toxic to a person's health for many reasons.


It Creates Bad Eating Habits


Oh lord, don't even ask me how many times I've stayed up late studying for an exam or browsing through Pinterest while simultaneously snacking. Although I've mostly gotten rid of this habit since graduating, it still occurs every so often. Yet despite knowing that staying up late could result in weight gain (and oh it did), I continued stuffing my face at night anyway.


Unfortunately, this is an issue for almost everyone who stays up late at night. In fact, "people who go to bed late and sleep late eat more calories in the evening, more fast food, fewer fruits and vegetables and weigh more than people who go to sleep earlier and wake up earlier," according to a study from Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.


Yes, that's right. Sadly it's possible for late-night sleepers to eat 248 more calories a day than those who get to bed at a decent hour, and all of that can lead to about two pounds per month.​ Although co-lead author Kathryn Reid admitted that the study and research couldn't confirm whether or not people choose poor food options at night because they're night owls or simply because those specific, unhealthy options are the only ones available, the correlation between weight gain and the time participants went to sleep was prevalent.

You're Probably Not Getting the Recommended Hours of Sleep


Many of us often hear that it's good to get at least eight hours of sleep, and according to Janet K. Kennedy, Ph.D., clinical psychologist and founder of NYC Sleep Doctor, adults should attempt to get at least seven to eight and a half hours of sleep every night, though she does admit that this rule can sometimes backfire.


"The eight-hour recommendation is often taken literally, which contributes to performance pressure and anxiety," Dr. Kennedy says. "Sleep quality is best when it occurs within the body’s natural circadian rhythm. If a person has a circadian rhythm timed for later nights, he or she would be able to get good quality sleep at those times. The real issue is one of sleep deprivation when the circadian rhythm is at odds with schedule demands."


​So if a person truly can’t fall asleep before midnight but has to routinely wake up early, it's likely that sooner or later they're going to feel seriously sleep deprived.


Late Nights Weaken Your Immune System


When I was in high school, the latest I'd stay up was typically 11 p.m. and occasionally, midnight. For the most part however, I'd get my rest pretty early in the night. Yet once I got to college, it was all downhill from the first day of freshman year. As in, every night was a late night, and I'd usually only get eight hours of sleep on Fridays and Saturdays. And, unsurprisingly, with my lack of sleep came cold after cold.


According to a study in the "Cancer Research" journal from researchers at the University of Chicago and University of Louisville, "Poor-quality sleep marked by frequent awakenings can speed cancer growth, increase tumor aggressiveness and dampen the immune system’s ability to control or eradicate early cancers."


​A lack of sleep has often been linked to a poor immune system, so it's no wonder that so many college students, and just night owls in general, get sick so frequently.


Melatonin Production Can Be Affected


In relation to a lack of sleep potentially bringing about various illnesses in your life (cancer being one of the most extreme possibilities), when people don't hit the hay earlier in the night and get less than the recommended hours of sleep, their melatonin levels can go down.


According to the University of Maryland, melatonin is a hormone that "helps regulate other hormones and maintains the body's circadian rhythm," or in other words, your body clock, and "when it is light, the production of melatonin drops."


So while it may different for someone with insomnia who simply just can't go to sleep though they're laying in bed in the dark, for a night owl who stays up late gaming, studying or binge-watching TV shows, the light proves to be detrimental. With modern technology, all that glare can actually be hurting your sleep. So if you want to get some ZZZ's and improve your health, try turning off your phone a few hours before you go to sleep and avoid watching any TV beforehand as well.


You Can Be Prone to Negative Thoughts & Anxiety


Jacob Nota and Meredith Coles of Binghamton University published a study in December 2014 noting that, "people who sleep for shorter periods of time and go to bed very late at night are often overwhelmed with more negative thoughts than those who keep more regular sleeping hours." According to the study, it's more likely for those who go to sleep later to experience repetitive negative thoughts that they can't seem to ignore, and to dwell on various issues in their lives even if they're minor.


There's a Risk for Sleep disorders


People across the globe experience sleep disorders, whether insomnia, sleep apnea or narcolepsy. Even having nightmares or sleepwalking are categorized as sleep behavior disorders. Yet before you panic that your late-night sleeping might be associated with a disorder, first make sure that you don't actually just have a bad habit. That is, are you really trying to get to bed earlier and just can't fall asleep, or are you just putting your sleep at the bottom of your list of priorities?


Knowing the Difference Between a Bad Habit & Insomnia


Although it's possible for many people to experience insomnia at some point during their lives, there's a major difference between having an actual "sleep phase delay" disorder and simply just having a bad habit.


"If being a night owl is just a habit, setting a consistent wakeup time will help the body adjust to an earlier bedtime again," Dr. Kennedy says. "That’s also different from insomnia. Most people have periods of insomnia at some time during their lives. It's normal to have difficulty sleeping during times of stress, change, loss, illness and trauma. Sleep typically rebounds when the stress resolves or diminishes.


​But some people develop anxiety around sleep and coping strategies that keep the insomnia in place for longer periods. For example, sleeping late after a rough night, napping, and/or going to bed too early to compensate disrupts the body clock and keeps the problem in place."
