AMS Testimony: Hope Never Disappoint Because God Is In Control - His banner over me is Love


Many are saying of me, "God will not deliver him." "Selah" But you are a shield around me, O LORD; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head.  To the LORD I cry aloud, and he answers me from his holy hill. "Selah” I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.  I will not fear the tens of thousands drawn up against me on every side (Psalms 3: 2-6)

 Are you finding it difficult or hard to totally depending and trusting that God is in control? I do. I sometimes think I can handle life situations better all by myself, like I'm the only one who really knows what I need. I forget that God is the one who's really got things under control.


  For the past two years, I’ve been having a major pain in my stomach, finding it difficult to eat and my cloth size drops from size 12 to between 6 and 8 because my weight flaunted a lot. My friend thought it might be reflux, appendicitis or pancreatitis, so they rushed me to the doctor. On the way to the doctor, I was in a lot of pain and really scared I might have to have surgery. I kept asking God, "Why is this happening to me?" There was nothing I could do to feel better, and I was frustrated that God allowed it to happen.

 But then I realized the best thing I could do was to pray and ask God to help me. When I got to the doctor's office, he examined me and found I did have appendicitis. Thank God the operation went well, but after few months I started having serious problem of inflammation of the pancreas. I suffer a lot of pain and I will never wish my enemy to go through such pain, I did several text and scan, I went for endoscopy, trust me it was painful.

 Around last year spring, My GP called my phone, I did not want to picked it up because it was a private number but I did answered my phone and the secretary said DR …….. would like you(Miss Saliu) to come and see him next day. Lo and behold, the doctor said Miss Saliu I am sorry to break this News to you, I am afraid from the various scans and text you’ve done, they found Cancer in your lymph node ……. I was so scared I felt like dead already it was like someone was pronouncing a dead sentence into my life. Cry I could not cry I was like maybe I should go back to Nigeria and die in my Country. One thing I will never forget was the loud word that came out of my mouth which was

Alaba whose report shall you believe and I answered loud and clear, I will believe the report of the Lord His report says victory! His report says I shall not die but leave to declare the works of God in the land of the living


and indeed God changed doctor’s report about my health. Glory be to Jesus! Halleluyah! 

 Even though I wanted to fix the situation, I couldn't. The only one who can completely control anything is God. Whenever I try to do things my own way, God usually shows me that I have to turn to him with my problems. Just like Jacob wrestled with God and realized God is always in control, it took some pain and fear for me to remember that God's in charge of everything.


 In Job 38-41, God goes into detail about all he can do. He's reminding Job that everything that happens in the world is in God's control. It's almost like God's saying, "Hey, who's the boss here, mate—you or me?"

 I hope I never have to suffer like Job did—his family was killed, his servants were murdered, his animals died, and he was covered with terrible wounds.

 However, I kind of experience a little bit of Job suffering— my father and mother died when I was a teenager, I battle with a lot of challenges which I don’t want to explain here, my brother was killed….…. and I battle with health issues too.

 Even though I did suffer but every time I read Romans 5: 2-7 in the bible —

“Through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.  Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.  And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.  You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.  Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die.”

 My hope in CHRIST JESUS reminds me that God will always help me through my problems in one way or another. I trust God with everything more than before because He is ultimately in control of the whole universe and He will never disappoint me.

Video: Atlanta 10 years old boy released by kidnapper after singing gospel song

All I can say is God is working all around us...all the time - even if we don't acknowledge Him.

With this video above, I believe there are kidnappers in every Nation not just in Nigeria. Thank God this boy was saved, while he was being released, hundreds of people and children are being killed, tortured, and raped by criminals but our God is Mightier and able to spared our us and saved.

However, some people said the boy annoyed the kidnapper and no Godly thing happened... In my opinion whether he annoyed the kidnapper or not, is irrelevant, with the fact that the boy is safe and back with his family speaks volumes to his courage. He did what he needed to do to get out of what could have been a very nasty situation. Would you have done something similar if you were in his place or would you have shut your mouth and let that man do whatever he was going to do to you?

Love is a beautiful thing - Express it ... life is too short

 

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage. Love is our true destiny; we do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone- we find it with another. Love is like a friendship caught on fire, in the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering.

As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep burning and unquenchable. The only way to beat life at its own game is being in control of you and never gives up on anything or anybody. Even if you lose, learn the lesson and move on.

 
 
 
Life will always have its ups and downs but patience and trust in the Lord is very vital. It is a great thing in life to love someone with trust and confident all days long. Love is life, hope for tomorrow. All the same God is Love and Love is God. We are loved and still love by the Almighty God.

AMS: What does it Takes to Achieve the Impossible?


Hello Friends,

 Let us thank God for the month of April, another glorious month. I am sure many of us are expecting to achieve the unachievable. So what does it takes to achieve the impossible? You know in your heart what you want to do, but you feel held back as if you are waiting for ‘something’ to happen before you take the step. We’ve all been there, right? – the moments where you have an inspired thought and within seconds circumstantial evidence presents itself and suddenly the thought gets pushed back and become ‘another dream, another day, another time, or another loss’. Speaking from experience (or rather a personal learning process) I can truly identify with this and the ever prominent question: What does it take to achieve the impossible?


 Well, I believe it first starts with having a nurtured and unshakeable belief that within you lies a limitless potential. Many of us will claim that we have this all figure out, but do we really? When I say unshakeable belief, it means, to know that you are connected with the source of all that is God/ 'divine self'. I, you, everybody and everything in the universe (and even the galaxies) are a diverse expression of the infinite whole - regardless of age, race, religion, creed or sex. Power literally lies WITHIN you.


I Corinthian 2:9 say, but as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. You have access to greatness, unconditional love, unending creation and limitless potential. Try and grasp that if you will (open your mind's-eye). Because once you fully grasp this you will come to realise that all things are indeed possible. You will know without doubt that there is absolutely NOTHING to fear.




















This month, apart from applying expectations to your dreams (i.e. the unshakeable ‘knowing’ that they will manifest), dedicate sometime to yourself to actually understand the fullness of goodness and potential that lies within you. Ask yourself 'what is holding me back'? By doing so you will know which fears you have to conquer. Set the expectations and walk into your purpose.


 If you aiming for the moon at the beginning of this year, you might as well hit for a star by setting new goal – aim higher. People don’t triumph until trial and people don’t succeed overnight until they take THAT decision. Dream big and act on it because what you believe is what you become. Jesus said that all things are possible to him who believes. The capacity to believe is in your DNA, and what you believe will determine your destiny. Please don’t devalue yourself or cut yourself out, all you need is to break the limit in your thinking. Go beyond your comfort zone this month and aim higher with the power of vision that God has deposited in you.


Remember, Abraham and Sarah “grew strong in [their] faith” (Romans 4:20) because God pushed them to believe more than they thought was possible. For the sake of our joy he does the same for you and me.


 Happy New Month!! xx

 — feeling excited.



Amazing!!! A remarkable teacher saves his seriously ill student's life by donating one of his KIDNEYS

 

Mr. Ray Coe, 53, is a Christian and a special educational need co-ordinator who stepped in to save Alya Ahmed Ali - seriously ill student, 13, after learning she was desperate for a Kidney donor.

Meanwhile, Ayla is from Stratford, east London and a Muslim suffered from renal failure. She also has hydrocephalus - water on the brain - which has resulted in her having severe learning difficulties.
 

Alya’s mother told Mr Coe during the summer term last year that her daughter would be absent from school as she had to have kidney dialysis. Mr Coe was very concerned and asked Alya’s mother what he could do to help her daughter.
 
According to DM report, Mr Coe said 'There is a verse in the bible that says something like: "Maybe you were born for such a time as this". It just clicked and I knew then that it was right.

 

Thank be to God Almighty, the pair went on to have blood tests and against all the odds, they showed that Ray was a match - despite not being related. The successful transplant went ahead at London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital in February. Both Alya and Mr Coe are now recovering well from the operation and are expected to return to school after the Easter break.
 
Just like School headteacher Wendy Bower said: 'Mr Coe has gone above and beyond the call of duty with this selfless and noble act’.
The bible says love your neighbour as you love yourself. Religious does not matter, love covers multitude of sin.
