The Miracle of You

Tuesday, 26 August 2014

 How often do you stop to consider the amazing workings of your own body? Even if you have your share of aches and pains or other conditions, there are still a myriad of functions that go on within our systems starting before birth until the day we die. Many of these are things we may never think about or even know about unless we take the time to study them. Here are a few incredible facts about the human body, some of which are happening even as you’re reading this:

 

The Power of Prayer

Saturday, 03 May 2014

Perhaps you have heard someone say that they believe in “the power of prayer”. Is prayer an important part of your daily life? If it is, why and how do you pray? If you don’t pray, maybe it’s time to explore the reasons why you don’t. The following discussion might prompt you to take a closer look at what the Bible says about prayer.

Family Ties

Sunday, 22 December 2013

No matter how close or distant we may be with our individual family members, there is no doubt that most everyone has varying degrees of ties with those we are related to. In the worst of cases, a family relationship may be completely absent except for a shared lineage. But in the best of cases, there is a loving and warm closeness between kin.

The Changing Face of Healthcare

Sunday, 17 November 2013

healthcareDuring a recent trip to a hospital emergency room with a loved one, I began thinking about the care she had received throughout the time there. Other than the few minutes it took initially to insert an IV line, take a few of vials of blood, place an automated blood pressure cuff and leads to a heart monitor, not one of the nurses, doctors, or technicians who came in and out had any need to touch this person again for the duration of the next few hours. All of the information they needed about her care was supplied by the devices she was hooked up to, and was logged into a computerized record.

Refugees and Sojourners

Monday, 30 September 2013

Syrian-refugees-2203532How would it feel to gather your most important belongings, pack them into a duffel bag or two and set out, possibly on foot, to a completely unfamiliar place, perhaps even in another country. When you arrived to wherever it was you were going, you might find yourself in a stifling, tent city filled with hundreds or thousands of other strangers and the stench of human waste and decay all around you. Maybe --if you are fortunate--you have access to meager supplies of basic food and limited water (possibly not very clean), but no electricity and scant medical care at best. You might find yourself sleeping out in the open air, exposed to the elements, with bugs and other dangers. If you are lucky, you might have a blanket or mat to sleep on.

 

 

 

Renewable Energy

Monday, 13 May 2013
Have you ever seen how silicon ingots are made? These special objects hold a unique property and are used to manufacture solar energy cells. The silicon ingots are sliced into thin wafers, and then exposed to positive and negative gases – forming a Positive-Negative (P-N) junction. The unique thing about silicon is that it acts as a semiconductor. When the silicon wafers are exposed to light, (photons) electrons are excited to bounce from one atom to the next. This forms an electrical circuit. As servants of God, we too are like solar cells. God has selected special people to learn about His kingdom. We have been introduced to the light of God and are excited to share this knowledge with others (John 8:12, 1 Peter 2:9), and we serve as semiconductors of enlightening information. Solar energy is often called renewable energy, because the use of light does not deplete resources on earth, such as coal, oil, and gas. As servants of God, we are renewable; our minds are teachable. We take energy from God and do not rely on our own way of thought, which can be contrary to God’s will (Proverbs 3:5-6). Some of the basic qualities that God teaches us are:

Our Mission In Life

Sunday, 31 March 2013
“A fool despiseth his father's instruction: but he that regardeth reproof is prudent.” Proverbs 15:5

Our Heavenly Father created us as human beings to fulfill a unique mission during our time living on planet Earth between birth and death. He is our Father and His Son Jesus Christ is our King and Brother. The obvious and clear objective as we pursue our mission is to learn how to be obedient sons and daughters to this Father who gave us life.

Who is Hearing God's Word?

Saturday, 16 March 2013
Evil is increasing daily through the works and words of people around the world. Do you see it happening? Through governments, businesses, and organizations, people with power and authority lie, steal, cheat, torture, oppress, abuse, and kill others. And yet in many cases no speedy consequences are given to them. What must Almighty God Jehovah/Yahweh think about these atrocities, which He foretold in the Bible hundreds of years ago?
If you are familiar with our monthly newsletters, you have probably noticed that the articles are generally written matter-of-factly, rather than from a personal view. However, this particular section will offer a bit of both.

Just recently, I sat close beside the beloved man who I knew as my father, stroking his forehead as he took the last, surprising gentle breaths of his life in this world. As difficult as those final weeks had been for him and our family, I consider it a true gift that I was able to be with him at the very moment the spirit of life left that feeble, sickly body that was no longer capable of allowing him a fulfilling existence. While there were, of course, many tears shed by those of us who loved him, there was also a sense of peace and relief that he was no longer bound by the suffering that had become part of his daily life for the last months and weeks. He was truly at rest.

Beliefs Pave Your Way

Monday, 11 February 2013
Almighty God Jehovah/Yahweh uses the Bible to teach us about beliefs, the importance of believing what is righteous, and shunning beliefs that are detrimental to the well-being of humanity. The Bible describes people who believed things they saw and experienced in the Old Testament and the New Testament when Jesus walked among them as he preached the Kingdom of God, healed the sick, and performed miracles. Some people who saw him believed, while others did not. We believe him today and are blessed even though we do not see him in person. Read John 20:29.

Everyone has a set of beliefs that drive the way they think, talk, and behave. A belief is a state or habit of mind in which trust or confidence is placed in a person or thing. [1] A belief is the psychological state in which an individual holds a proposition or premise to be true. A belief system is a set of mutually supportive beliefs that can be religious, philosophical, ideological, or a combination thereof. [2]
