אי ציות – Disobedience

First of all , a lovely welcome to all of you, whether this is the first time you are checking out a post of mine and also if you are returning. It has been a minute and thats simply because I have not been led to write anything in particular, now whether that is because God didn’t want me to write anything yet or I just wasn’t paying attention, I couldn’t tell you but anyway, we move because GOD IS GOOOOOD.

The topic of obedience has been laying heavily on my heart these past few weeks and I actually led a prayer call on in not too long ago and I thought this was where it would end but the Lord said “nah” so here we are. The level of conviction that might come with this post may be a lot so maybe ask the Lord for strength as you read , it has been convicting me a lot but we love conviction right ? take the time to digest, share it with your peoples as you feel led and I also pray that the Lord speaks to you through this one.

To be obedient to God means to do what He asks of you and to be disobedient simply means to refuse to do what He has asked you to do and in some cases, it also means doing that which you have been specifically asked not to do. Disobedience is first of all a sin and God doesn’t take sin lightly and we shouldn’t either and i can understand how easy it is to overlook that aspect of what it actually is and as long as we continue to do this, there isn’t going to any real change. Disobedience is a big deal and we must come to realise that when we are disobedient to God, there will be consequences for our actions whether thats directly to us or to others around us, and sometimes we don’t always see what those consequences are immediately but I can assure you that they do exist. Just as being disobedient will have its consequences, being obedient also produce good results of its own and I will give us a few biblical examples which helps us to understand this better.

In Genesis, God gave dear old Adam and Eve a simple instruction of not eating the fruit of a specific tree but they were not able to follow through, they were disobedient , they did exactly what they were told not to do. we see that the result of their disobedience is that sin enters the world and every human being that would exist would be born with the sinful nature. Can you see how one act of disobedience, one small action that probably seems insignificant could lead to something so massive for so many people ? I think this goes to show us that God is serious about the issue of sin. I know sometimes we may believe that we know what is best or that God is trying to keep us from something so good and wonderful and so we pursue after these things. Yes that something may very well be fantastic but if God has not wished it for you, it’s going against the plan He has for you then that thing actually now becomes a curse.

In the book of Joshua, we see another example of disobedience and the consequences it has and what happens really did make me sad because it seemed quite harsh and unnecessary however how I feel won’t change what has already happened. One of the things God told the people of Israel to do was to make sure they didn’t take any of the devoted items but my guy Achan (don’t know what he was thinking) did exactly that which they were asked not to do , we human beings are actually so problematic sometimes aren’t we. So anyway he takes these items and the Bible says that the Lords anger burned against Israel , this one act of disobedience that probably feels like such a small mistake led to Achan’s death. It took me a while to digest the punishment that was given to him and the way that he actually died,it seemed a little too extreme but what I am learning is God is a just God and He must judge sin however he chooses to.

Another thing we should remember is when God tells us clearly to do something whether that is to pray for someone, or to evangelise , or to pay for someone’s coffee, or to help someone financially, or to go into ministry, or to share your testimony, and the list goes on and on, there is a reason behind it. So if there is a reason behind what He has asked you to do, we must begin to see that it is important and it has a purpose and we might not always understand right away or even ever but that isn’t for us to worry about and it definitely should not be used as an excuse to be disobedient. I know a popular excuse that I use often is that there is someone else more gifted, qualified, obedient, and so on and so forth and I imagine a lot of us can relate. Let me just remind you that God does not require our help or suggestions on who or what He chooses to use. When He calls us , He has a purpose and a plan which are so good and whilst He will use someone else when we continue to be disobedient, He chose you first for a reason because He believes you are able to do everything that He is calling you to do with his help. We mustn’t make the mistake of making what isn’t about us all about us, and actually worry instead about how we can be better children to our Father, to trust and obey and to do it with joy in our hearts because to be used by God is an amazing privilege not to be taken for granted.

In Numbers 20 :1-13, we see how disobedience can also limit the way God works through us and how we limit future opportunities. God spoke very clearly to Moses, He gave him clear instructions on how He wanted something done but Moses did things his own way. “The Lord said to Moses, take the staff and you and your brother Aaron other the assembly together. SPEAK to that rock before their eyes and it will pour out its water” Instead “Then Moses raised his arm and STRUCK the rock twice with his staff” and we see the result that God isn’t pleased ” Because you did not trust in me enough to honour me as holy in the sight of the Israelites, you will not bring this community into the land I give them”. God wants us to trust in him completely , He requires our complete obedience not just choosing what we want to adhere to, not picking out bits we think are important and leaving the rest, by doing this we insult God , we say that his detailed plans are not part of our plans which is such a shame.

Let us be encouraged that when we are obedient, someone will be encouraged, prayers are answered, someone’s life may be changed , new friendships formed, you or someone else’s breakthrough, someone giving their life to Christ, the list is endless. Whilst you won’t always see the results of your obedience, remember that there is one and some times there are many. Although it is lovely seeing these results , not be discouraged and do not grow weary, our focus should be more on having the desire to please the Father and showing the love we have through our actions. Disobedience is a sin that has led to death for some, just incase I didn’t mention that enough. I pray this blesses you and that God speaks to you through this post and if the Holy Spirit leads you to drop a comment, then be OBEDIENT (jk but also serious) . I pray the Lord forgives us for all the times we have been disobedient and that we are looking at ways in which we can make the necessary changes, never taking the Lords mercy and kindness for granted. 1 John 1:9 – If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness” Psalm 128 :1 – Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in obedience to him” God bless you and speak soon. xo

A state of luke-warmness

Guten tag, hope you are all well ? really and truly ? thank you if you’re coming back and welcome if you are new, I pray you are blessed in some way, please feel free to send any prayer requests, comments, questions,corrections, all of that. God bless you

I want to start by thanking God for each and every single one of you who have made the very important decision to follow Christ. The gift of salvation described in Matthew 1:21 – (she will have a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins) is exactly what has happened to every believer and for this we must constantly show our appreciation.

I’ve realised that to accept that there is a God and to claim that we have given our lives to Him is one thing, but to really follow him with every single fibre of our being is a completely different thing, and that is the focus of this post.

To use myself as an example, I have been a Christian basically all my life, but really only by word and not my actions. I attended church regularly but that in no way proves me to be a follower of Christ. In fact my true heart was revealed at university when my church attendance began to dwindle significantly because it was no longer mandatory. I had gone with my family when I was living with them but when it was just left to me to make the decision, I failed to understand the importance of it and so only went when I really felt like it . My actions did not match up with that of a true child of God; I was very much of this world as I believed I could be a follower of christ and still love this world .

I can tell you that lifestyle is so unprofitable for any of us; you must pick one. You are simply fooling yourself if you are of the assumption that you can do both; the bible refers to this as lukewarmness. To be lukewarm means that you are neither hot nor cold, instead you are in between. It means you’re not choosing to live for Christ and are still very much of this world.

The way I see it sometimes is like going up and down on this scale; sometimes you are on fire for God whilst also trying to gain the approval of the world. To be in this state even sounds very tiring, confusing and impossible so lets just stop doing it altogether. In Revelations 3:15-16, Jesus made his stance on this issue very clear when He said: “so because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.” I dont know about you but people usually only spit disgusting things out of their mouths; things that are not edible, things that do not bring any hapiness to ones tastebuds, and I believe those words were used to really help us visualise and understand His distaste for lukewarmness.
1 John 2:15-16 reminds us that it is not possible to love the world, the things it offers and also the Father, simply due to the fact that they contradict one another.

For a long time I thought being lukewarm only meant to be comfortable in sin. I am learning however that this is not the case; we can flee from sin and yet still be very much lukewarm. To express what I mean I’ll give an example:
Whilst at work, do we supress our convictions in order to avoid persecution? I find that it is easier to truly show our love for God when we are surrounded with others who share that same love. Like at church, we can be as free as we want and not worry about being “too much” for others as there’s no fear of judgement.

A few questions that we can ask ourselves are:

“Do the people I work with know that I am a Christian?”

“Do my actions and words portray what it truly means to be follower of Christ?” 

“Do I partake in conversations that bring others down or that do not glorify God?” 

“Am I a completely different person when at church and around Christians and when I am around unbelievers?”

“Am I passionate about sharing the good news of the gospel with the people I come in contact with ” or do you think that there are certain people assigned to doing this ?

In Luke 14: 25-33 , Jesus explains the importance of counting the cost of discipleship before committing to it because there will be sacrifices to be made if we are to truly follow Christ with all our heart. We are encouraged to love everything else less than we love Christ, including our family, even our own lives. We must be willing and ready if we were ever to be asked to drop EVERYTHING in order to follow Him. 
When Jesus Christ chose to die on the cross for each of us, that we may be free and free indeed, I believe that He did it wholeheartedly. Our response to this amazing gift therefore, should be to follow him with all of our hearts and to be on fire at all times no matter what the consequences might be. 2 Timothy 3:12 says “indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted” so if you are reading this and have never experienced persecution on behalf of Christ, ask yourself why. It may be that you need to start being a bit more radical whether in your workplace, community or wherever it is that you go. As followers of Christ, we must be 100% committed to our faith. Our love for God has to come before anything else that this world may have to offer, and if we claim to truly love Him, then shouldn’t every aspect of our lives glorify him? Everyone we come into contact with should be able to see that we are different, set apart and not of this world. We must view sin in the same way that Christ views it, we must bear fruit, we cannot afford to compromise.

As this post speaks to you, it is speaking to me a lot more I can promise you that, and there are a few things the Lord is making me aware of that I do and the changes I need to make so that I can really glorify Him in every aspect. I encourage you to search your hearts, ask the Lord for revelation, ask for conviction , and if you need to ask a close christian friend some tough questions then do so. I believe that James 5 ; 19 really encourages us to be of help to one another in our spiritual lives because sometimes it can be hard for us to see the error of our ways for a number of different reasons which is why it is important that we surround ourselves with like minded people who can and will speak truth and correction into our lives. It says “my brothers and sisters, if one of you should wander from the truth and someone should bring that person back , remember this : whoever turns a sinner from the error of their way will save them from death and cover a multitude of sins”

John 3:16 – For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. Peace + Love , talk to you all soon by the grace of God xxxxxxxx

Can I rebuke you ?

First of all, I thank God for all of you who are reading this right now because it means that the Lord allowed you to see another day and your eyes are still functioning so you better thank God real quick and you are welcome. I pray that as you read this post, there will be conviction wherever it is needed and that as the Lord speaks to you, you will be sensitive and obedient and that you will check everything I have written against the word of God and correct me if I have made any mistakes. Enjoy 🙂

This is how google describes rebuke “express sharp disapproval or criticism of (someone) because of their behaviour or actions” so it basically means to correct someone when they are doing something they shouldn’t be doing , simple as. I have noticed that a lot of people do not appreciate being corrected and when they do receive that correction, they become defensive and accuse the corrector of judging them and this accusation is then topped off with things like “only God can judge me”. As followers of Christ , correction and encouragement to our brothers and sisters means that we speak the word of God to them in love, with the hope that they will grow and mature in Christ. On the other hand , there is also encouragement from a worldly manner which is the speaking of nice and lovely things to people ; in order to make them feel better , to affirm who they are , to not offend which allows them to continue living their lives the way they want to. Can you have a guess as to which way isn’t the best and can also become destructive ? the way of the world is most definitely not the way to go as we must constantly be encouraging one another to be more like Christ everyday.

If you especially find it hard to rebuke your friend/family when you recognise sin in their life , you really need to be asking yourself why that is the case. Are you worried about losing that friend ? Are you worried about what that friend is now going to think of you ? Are you worried that you are going to come across as judgmental ? Are you worried about the sins that you yourself might be taking part in ? or do you convince yourself that you love that person and so you do not want to hurt their feelings ? These questions goes to show how selfish we are actually being by not correcting our brothers and sisters in love because we might be too busy worrying about how it might make us look and about the end impact it will have on us most of the time, this simply isn’t good enough.

Galatians 6:1-5 will be used as a guide to help us answer the question “Why and how we should we rebuke each other ? ” 1) When someone is caught in sin and because we are spiritual people : we should aim to live by the spirit and not by our sinful nature and we should also want this for our brothers and sisters in christ since we know that a spirit led life is the truth. If we love them then we should be willing to rebuke them as the wages of sin is death. V1 – “Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch yourself, lest you too be tempted” 2) The restoration of our brother or sister : we must have the desire to see them be restored again by the gospel as we would want this for ourselves as well and we should not feel good about others sinning, we must not be people who are comfortable watching people live in sin. 3) To fulfil the law of Christ by carrying the burdens of others : we should help our friends carry their burden as we have been asked to love our neighbours as ourselves , we must lift each other up in love and also strengthen one another as we struggle against sin. Romans 15:1-3 “We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Let each of us please his neighbour for his good , to build him up. For Christ did not please himself, but as it is written, “The reproaches of those who reproached fell on me”

SO HOW SHOULD WE REBULE ONE ANOTHER ? 1) Rebuke gently (V1) : first of all , if we want our rebuke to be received and understood by the person we are rebuking then our delivery is very important. If we want to restore and care for this person, then we must rebuke in a gentle manner , now the type of relationship you have with this person will depend on the way you rebuke them. With some people you may need to be firm and with someone not so much as every single person is different and what works for one person won’t necessarily work for the next. Therefore it is important that you are prepared before going into it, that you ask the Holy Spirit to guide you so that you do not speak based on the knowledge you might think you have, also pray that their hearts will be softened to accept the rebuke in the right way. “You who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness” 2) Rebuke knowing that we’re not above temptation (V1) : as we rebuke others, we must also be aware of ourselves and always be alert that we too do not fall into sin or even the same sin we are correcting someone against. “Keep watch on yourself , lest you too be tempted” we must remember that no matter how mature we might be in our walk, we can never be above temptation. 3) Rebuke while humbly recognising that we are nothing (V3) : we are not superior to the person that we are rebuking and so we must remind ourselves that we are Christians as a result of God’s grace and mercy and not because of anything we have or can do. “For if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. ” 4) Rebuke while remembering that we have to carry our own load (V4-5) : we shouldn’t compare sins with the people we are rebuking or even to anyone else as this will not matter on the day of judgement. I have in the past always compared my sins to other peoples and I always came to the conclusion that theirs was always greater and mine was never that bad. Its important that we ask the Lord for mercy and that we will walk in humility and that he will give us the ability to focus on ourselves instead of comparing our sin to that of others and most importantly the desire to live a righteous life. “But let each one, test his own work, and then his reason to boast will be in himself alone and not in his neighbour . For each will have to bear his own load”.

Galatians 2:11-21 also deals with correction whereby Paul calls Peter our for his actions of hypocrisy because one minute he is comfortable eating with the Gentiles but when a group of men came from James, Peter then separated himself and only ate with the Jewish Christians which led the other Jews to follow in the example he was setting which could have then gone on to create problems and division. As Paul understood that what Peter was doing wasn’t right, he knew that he had to correct him because it was the right thing to do and that the work of God was more important. He didn’t waste any time and another thing we must remember is that no one is above correction, we are all bound to make some mistakes on this journey and so with mistakes come correction so lets prepare ourselves for it and ask God for grace. ” V11 and V14 “but when Cephas came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, (no going behind his back) , because he stood condemned. “but when I saw that their conduct was not in step with the truth of the gospel, I said to Cephas before them all, “if you , though a Jew, live like a Gentile and not like a Jew, how can you force the Gentiles to live like Jews?”

In three simple steps, help the person you are correcting to see their sin, point them to the word of God and then encourage them to change , pray with them, encourage them in any way you can, and most of all, be kind and correct in love. Another thing that we must remember is that in correction, there is a lot of love involved and so if you are in your feelings because you have been corrected then that’s just too bad. We ought to correct the people we say we love and care about, how do you watch the person you love go down the wrong path ? especially one you wouldn’t want to go down on ? it doesn’t make much sense to me and I appreciate that it might be difficult for whatever reason but we cannot live in deception , the bible is very clear on this topic and that should be enough to change our minds and soften our hearts.

Prayer : I pray that the Lord will help us understand the correct way to rebuke each other, that he will help us be discerning people and not people that live in deception. I pray that we will seek him for guidance before we make any decisions as to be led by him alone and that we will walk in love at all times remembering that any of us can be tempted. I pray for anyone who may be struggling with the concept of being corrected, that you will surrender and God will work on your heart to see that it is an amazing way for people to show their love for you. I pray that the Lord will really help us to be bold and to live our lives in a way that is pleasing to him and glorifies him. Amen

I believe in God so why do I experience suffering ?

Over the years, I have come to the realisation that a lot of unbelievers and even believers including myself at some point do not agree that a God that claims to be good and loving can allow so much suffering to happen in the world. Especially when “innocent” or “good” people or children suffer, my question is what do we measure these things by ? what are we basing it on exactly ? what makes a person so good that they do not deserve to suffer and does that then mean that there are other people who especially deserve to suffer ? Earlier on i used the word claim as one can assume that there is an unbelief in the hearts of people about the goodness of God or that he is loving or even that he is powerful.

A lot of times I have heard people ask questions such as “why do bad things happen to good people” “why doesn’t God stop bad things from happening if He is so powerful ” and the list could really go on and on and I am hoping you catch my drift. Although I accepted that suffering was a part of life, I didn’t understand it and so I made a vow that I would never have any children so that they would avoid suffering.

Looking into the sovereignty of God, Job 36 :26 says “behold, God is great, and we know him not, the number of his years is unsearchable ” now although the Bible allows us to have some knowledge of who God is, we will simply never be able to know him completely. Another scripture that supports that is Ecclesiastes 3:11 – “He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end”. These verses help me to understand that God has limited our abilities to understand all of life in a way and he has every right in doing so. I believe everything that he does and requires us to do is for our own benefit and we should be grateful for this.

Ecclesiastes 7:14 – “in the day of prosperity be joyful, and in the day of adversity consider : God has made the one as well as the other, so that man ay not find out anything that will be after him”. The NIV version reads : “when times are good, be happy but when times are bad, consider this : God has made the one as well as the other. Therefore, no one can discover anything about their future”. To break it down further, the NLT version reads ” enjoy prosperity while you can, but when hard times strike, realise that both came from God. Remember that nothing is certain in this life”. We cannot only expect to have happy moments in life and not experience any kind of suffering, this isn’t what being a follower of Christ is about. The Bible tells us that God Almighty has produced both of these things and we must learn to accept and embrace them. As God speaks to us in many different ways, we must make sure that we are paying attention to what he is communicating with us as we go through different things during the course of our lives.

Mathew 16:21 – 28 – Jesus told his disciples about the suffering that he was going to experience at the hand of the elders, chief priests and scribes and that then he would be killed. Vs 22 : “Peter took Jesus aside and begun to rebuke him, saying “for be it from you, Lord ! This shall never happen to you” But he turned and said to Peter, Get behind me, satan ! you are a hindrance to me. For you, are not setting your mind on the things of God, but on the things of man” A few things that scream out to me from these verses 21;23 are that: 1) We must be in a constant place of remembering that as followers of Christ, we must be ready to go through suffering. Accepting it alone however isn’t enough, we also need check our attitudes towards it, are we going to moan and groan about it or are we going to prepare ourselves gladly thereby giving God the glory ? 2) We must be careful of people who try and persuade us that as Christians, we shouldn’t be go through hard times or that God wouldn’t want his children to suffer as we see Peter trying to do. When in fact, it is part of God’s plan that suffering must take place and lets just imagine for one second that Jesus didn’t suffer and die for our sins, imagine if he hid away or complained through the whole process … 3) When we seek to avoid suffering or fall to understand why we must go through it, then we are setting our minds on the things of man instead of the things of God, are children of God or children of the world ? Do we love and desire the things of the world more than we do the things of God ? NLT may help us to understand vs 23 better , it reads – “Jesus turned to Peter and said, “Get away from me, satan , you are a dangerous trap to me. You are seeing things merely from a human point of view, not from Gods “. We must pray that God will open our eyes so that we see things as he wants us to and not the way we would rather see and understand them.

John 9:1-41 tells the story of how Jesus heals a man who was blind from birth and his disciples asked him “Rabbi who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind. Jesus answered, “it was not that this man sinned, or his parents but the words of God might be displayed in him” We mustn’t always think that when people suffer that it is because of sin when in fact most times, our suffering is to bring glory to God. Whenever we find ourselves going through one thing or another, we must ask God for clarity and strength so that we can have a better outlook as to why certain things may be happening to us at that time.

1 Thessalonians 3:1-8 “Therefore when we could bear it no longer, we were willing to be left behind Athens alone, and we sent Timothy, our brother and God’s coworker in the gospel of Christ, to establish and exhort you in your faith, that no one be moved by these afflictions. For you yourselves know that we are destined for this” James 1:2-4 says “count it all joy, my brothers , when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness” Romans 5:3-5 ” Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance and endurance produces character, and character produces hope and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us” I hope that these verses will encourage you and help you to understand a bit more as to why suffering must happen and the advantages of it.

Although suffering is a part of being followers of Christ and we are to expect it, we are not required to enjoy it and we see this in Luke. Luke 22:41-42 says “And he withdrew from them about a stone’s throw, and knelt down and prayed, saying, Father if you are willing, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will, but yours, be done”. This goes to show that Jesus did not enjoy the pain he was going through however he was willing to carry on in his pain as long as it was part of God’s will.

As brothers and sisters in Christ, I believe it is very important that we look for ways in which we can serve one another especially the people who are really going through a difficult time. The aim isn’t to solve all their problems or take away their pain but to pour our love into their hearts and lives, to show support, to encourage one another so that we are able to continue on this journey which can become difficult and even more so if we try to do it by ourselves. Galatians 6:2 – ” Bear one another’s burden, and so fulfil the law of Christ”

Next quote is from Uncle John Piper and I think it really helps puts things in perspective.
“This glory, which God will show us and give us, is beyond imagination. ‘What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, God has prepared for those who love him'(1 Corinthians 2:9). And more than that, there are special glories in the age to come brought about by your particular afflictions. Thats what 2 corinthians 4:17 says : afflictions are preparing(producing) for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison.
That is what i mean by saying every moment of your affliction is meaningful. It has meaning. It is doing something. Causing something. Bringing about something glorious. You can’t see this. The world can’t see this. They think , and you are tempted to think, ‘This suffering is meaningless. It’s not doing anything good, I can’t see any good coming out of this, that’s what you feel if you focus on what is seen.
To which Paul responds, ‘look to the things that are unseen, the promise of God. Nothing in your pain is meaningless, it’s all preparing something, working something, producing something, a weight of glory, a special glory for you. Just for you because of that pain”

I pray that the Lord will continue to work on each and every single one of us, so that we are truly seeking him through it all, and that for anyone who might have a different idea of who God is, that they will have an encounter with the Almighty God. I pray for anyone who might be going through a difficult time at the moment, that you will surrender everything into the hands of God, that you will have peace and joy and you will look to God and God alone for the things only he can provide. I pray that we will be people who encourages one another and lifts each other up in prayer and in love through our words and actions. Thank you God because you have promised to keep us until the very end and for the faith we have in you. Revelations 21:4 – “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away”.

Welcome, welcome ,welcome

Good evening and welcome. The purpose of this blog is to share with everyone who comes in contact with it exactly what the Lord has asked me to and the things He has placed on my heart and continues to place. I pray that I will grow with each post and that as you read each and every single one of them, that the Lord will speak directly to you and into your situation.

As I am still a baby girl in this walk , feel free to correct me wherever possible, ask questions, leave comments, share with your friends and family and let us grow together in love.

I am super excited to learn from you all , and more importantly to being obedient to what God tells me to do and I look forward to what He has in store for all of us. Speak to you all soon hopefully and Gods blessings to you all .

A little bit about myself, I go by Lade , 24 years young , lover of Christ and growing and lover of all things sweet and I love to laugh a lot so feel free to try and make me laugh.

I John 3:1 – See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
