I know, I know…it’s kind of a nuisance working around the whole timezone situation. Having said that, I can totally see why God did it, because it means there’s always people serving and praying at all times of the day, so as some sleep, some serve!! Genius!!
Go God! :D
Anyway, I’d love to be able to text those of you who live outside of the UK regularly, in the same way I text my UK-based friends, but naturally this would be a huge monetary drain -
…unless you’re on Twitter!
If you are, and you wish to have a conversation with me/text anytime, add and send a direct message to @mr_shaunki. I get them sent through to my phone, and that way I can reply for free in SMS form, even when I’m not on my computer! Huzzah!
We may only be limited to 140 characters per message, but it’s better than nothing, right?! It means we can have texting conversations of a sort, defying the international charge rates! …all of a sudden I feel slightly more connected to some of my wonderful Tumblr brothers and sisters!
who asked about good and bad things from 2011, i’ll reply when I get home, as i’m off out with my parents for a few hours to see New Year in here in the UK…but I will answer!
I’ll talk to you all later! Keep an eye on the horizon for my video message to you all! :)
I won’t show their post as you don’t need to see what they said. I apologise, Anon, for riling and angering you and such, but i’d say 2 things, and I say them out of love and care, and as a friend:
1) If you are a follower of Christ, talking like that won’t help you in your efforts to get into heaven.
2) If you’re that concerned about their future, maybe you should ask yourself if you’re doing all you can to share God’s love and message with them? Are you praying for them daily? Perhaps God is working in their hearts and you don’t even realise it, amigo…
I speak for myself in that second point, I could step my game up in that area, but it’s only when you think about the bigger picture that the importance of it sinks in, eh…
Sorry again Anon. I ask for your forgiveness if you feel I have wronged you, though I stand by my original words.
without sounding like a doomsbringer, I honestly couldn’t (and wouldn’t want to) guess at God’s plans…if the second coming happens next year, then that’s awesome; we get to spend eternity with God, Jesus Christ, and those we’ve loved and lost who made it there, a whole lot sooner than perhaps anticipated.
If it’s not His plan, then that’s just as great; more time to share His love and gospel with those who need to hear it most -
Either way, as followers of Christ, we’re in a win-win position!
how kind is that! very considerate, Mr. Year.
I won’t be around midnight my time, but i’m prepping another little video message for you all, so if you get the chance, check it out and hopefully it might bless/challenge you…maybe even make you smile or laugh…who knows! :)
So, if you’re Western hemisphere, it’ll be around 4-7pm your time, Eastern…well you may already be there if you’re as far as Australia etc, so consider it a belated greeting for your already-begun 2012!
Oh believe me, I will…as, I trust, will you. :)
the moment I read the word jerk I thought to myself;
:O “what have I done to offend this person?!” D:
…but you were kidding…*le phew* haha. :) Thankyou for you blessings, I know you only recently discovered me on here but thank goodness you discovered God before that! :D He is going to do amazing things through you this year so long as you remain willing and obedient, which i have every confidence you will! God bless, sis! :)
Honestly, Anon…you are so thoughtful and encouraging…I shall always endeavour, in all I do, to stick close to the Lord as He has to me, as, i’m sure, will you! You too are a wonderful person, as you’ve made this short, hairy little being smile from ear to ear. God bless you!! :)
Bless you Kaylie, you are honestly the sweetest! But trust me, you won’t just stumble across one some day…you’ll be led to the one, because of the One! Just keep reminding yourself of that my friend. I’m so glad we met on here, but i’m even more glad that you follow Christ! God bless you too!! :D
why thankyou! You’re too kind! In fact, why don’t you re-read what you put just above here….
…that’s what I also think of you, friend.
can’t hurt to ask just once. :)
Resolution Two: If no one else does, I still will.” —Jonathan Edwards (via hisstorythroughmine)
Do you mind?!
memory card problems,
sun in my eyes,
…eurgh. Stop now.
No actually, they haven’t…so I guess congratulations are in order for being the first! Having said that, I’ve never seen the film…
but I’m gonna go right ahead and presume that’s an okay thing to say? Or should I be horribly offended!? I have since Google’d said fellow, and I am far from being up to scratch with that man, but I thank you for your kind words just the same! haha. :)
In the natural world, fruit grows when it receives nutrition from the vine/branch of the plant or tree that it is attached to; all that is required to help it grow is fed directly into it. We are much the same in Christ; he is our source of all that we need to grow in God,
“I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener.” - John 15:1
…and so as God tends to us, through Jesus’ impact in our lives and a diet of prayer, reading the Bible, fellowship and living in accordance to the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we too can bear fruit…fruit that glorifies God and is good for us, not the fruit of death produced under the sinful nature we previously occupied.
well I don’t know about other guys, but my future wife will most definitely be getting all of these. :)
