*Where Our Affections Lie, That Is Where We Set Our Focus*

*_Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God._*
*Colossians 3:2‭-‬3*

It is important that those who are called by God, set their affections on those things that are of God in order to live a fulfilling godly life.

We must therefore walk and live in the Spirit so that we do not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

_This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh._
Galatians 5:16

It is very easy to lust after the flesh if our hearts, our minds and our affections are not in the right place.

The devil plays mind games and so it takes a deliberate act to maintain our focus and our affections on God.

The only way to keep our affections on God is to obey God. The devil does not know what we are thinking or that we receive the thoughts he tries to force into our minds until we start acting on those thoughts.

To reject Satan's thoughts and his mind games, the Word of God that we so often ignore, must become our weapon of war against the ploys of the enemy.

_Thy word have I hid in mine heart, That I might not sin against thee._
Psalm 119:11

The entrance of God's Words in our minds daily, wards off Satan's evil intentions.

_The entrance of thy words giveth light; It giveth understanding unto the simple._
Psalm 119:130

We must love the Word and live in it and meditate on it every day until it becomes the most natural thing to do.

_This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success._
Joshua 1:8

Our hearts must be on the things of God because whatever has our hearts, has our affections because our hearts yearn after what we go after.

Lord help us to maintain our focus on You and everything that is of You daily, so that our affections will not be wrapped up into the cravings of our flesh but we will yearn for more and more of You every moment of every day until we are totally lost in You. Amen.

*Revelation Comes Out of The Practice of His Presence*

*_Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, And make a joyful noise unto him with psalms._*
*Psalm 95:2*

In entering the presence of the Lord, He expects nothing less than our best.

He expects our best praise and our best worship.

_Thou wilt shew me the path of life: In thy presence is fulness of joy; At thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore._
Psalm 16:11

When we enter the presence of God, there is always so much joy.

In that moment, nothing else matters but God. It is the time when our hearts unite with His heart and we are one with Him.

In those precious moments, time has no relevance as eternity just becomes so real.

God longs for us more than we long for Him. We too often forget that because He loves us, He gave His life for us. That is love personified; that is love unconditional.

In God's heart, He wants us to linger a little longer and always have Him on our minds because He always has us on His mind.

His eyes are always on us and many times He tries to get our attention but we ignore Him or we are much too busy for Him.

How and why are we too busy for the greatest Lover anyone could ever dare to have? The lover who makes Himself available at all times, yet we ignore Him.

He longs to reveal Himself to us but we need to get into His presence and still our anxious soul so He can pamper us.

_I will bless the LORD at all times: His praise shall continually be in my mouth._
Psalm 34:1

If we could learn to bless Him all the time and sing and dance in His presence, He would open our eyes and show us great and mighty things we know nothing about.

_Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not._
Jeremiah 33:3

What about taking that time right now to sit in His presence? We would not regret one moment of it but yearn for more.

He is waiting ever so patiently to reveal all of what He has in store for us.

May God grant us the grace and the hunger to go after Him in earnestness of heart.

*Spiritual Therapy Is In God's Word*

*_The entrance of thy words giveth light; It giveth understanding unto the simple._*
*Psalm 119:130*

The Word of God cannot pe*****te our hearts without us being aware that we need the Word and purposefully sit in the Word.

_Seek the LORD and his strength, Seek his face continually._
1 Chronicles 16:11

We become very weak and worn out when we neglect God and His Word. No wonder the Word is reminding us to seek His face continually.

There is no seeking of God without His Word.

For someone who is going through some real depression and refuse to get counselling or therapy, it will not be long before they lose their mind.

No wonder the Word tells us that if we are going to have and maintain peace, our minds must stay on God.

_Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee._
Isaiah 26:3

The Word keeps us sane. It is the best medicine! It is our guide in life. Without the Word, our soul suffers in silence.

When we allow the Holy Spirit to comfort and guide us, coupled with the Word of God, life is a blessing.

_But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you._
John 14:26

_Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, And a light unto my path._
Psalm 119:105

When the Word of God lights up our darkness, our minds are clear because our focus is right.

Let us maintain our focus as we continue to take therapy and counsel from the Word of God.

We get so much from the Word and it acts as a buffer from the many attacks of the enemy when we begin to hide it in our hearts.

_Thy word have I hid in mine heart, That I might not sin against thee._
Psalm 119:11

As a man thinketh in his heart, so is He. Let us guard our hearts daily with the Word for in it we receive the best counselling ; the best therapy.

Keep thy heart with all diligence; For out of it are the issues of life.
Proverbs 4:23

What issues do we have today? Take divine counsel from the Word; it is therapy for our souls.

*Advice from a Medical Doctor to all women in 2022*

Seems very simple, but may have very deep positive impact!
A medical doctor decided to share some words of advice to ladies. The advice is simple and straightforward. Please share with every woman out there, so all can get healthier and better in 2022.

1. You cannot finish all the house chores in one day. Those who did, are stressfully sick and some are buried already.

2. Please create time to rest. It is not a sin to sit down , put up your legs on the table and eat popcorn whilst reading a book or just relaxing.

3. Please sleep if need be, that headache will go. Those who refuse to take vacation, or leave, or time out or rest time, their families are missing them because they have gone untimely to their Maker.

4. Stop taking sedatives to sleep, you are destroying your brain and organs. At a point, you will begin to forget things. Relax the brain , worry less, think less, laugh more , smile more. Everything will pass with time.

5. Sometimes go and sit outside quietly on your own, do nothing, say nothing , just admire God's handiwork, breathe in fresh air calmly. Hurry not.

6. Stand by your mirror smile to yourself, laugh , dance, sing, praise the Lord so you can glow.

7. Go buy yourself a snack or two or a treat.
Just do something for yourself, so you offload the things in your head.

8. Get necessary home gadgets to ease your work in order to avoid stress. Stress is the highest silent killer of women.

9. If you are not feeling well, say it , do something about it, go to health centre, hospital or call a nearby nurse, do not sit around. Your life matters .

10. Check your blood pressure and sugar level occasionally, whether you are sick or not. It has saved a lot of women in the past. Trust me on this.

Remember to share with all the women you love & let them enjoy life in good health and abundance.

: Ladies, this is a reminder to all of you. πŸŒΉπŸ™



In 2010, the U.S. Senate declared June 27 to be National PTSD Awareness Day. However, in 2014, it designated the whole month of June to be observed as National PTSD Awareness Month.







May is a month dedicated to raising awareness of persons suffering from mental or behavioral health difficulties, as well as to work to alleviate the stigma that many faces.
Awareness of trauma and the influence it can have on one's physical, emotional, and mental well-being is promoted within the church, as well as among children, families, and the community during Mental Health Awareness Month.
