When God created everything and declared it “good,” they were placed there to be enjoyed and not destroyed. Unfortunately, we litter everywhere causing deaths of not only flowers, trees, and sea creatures, but also wildlife. As we see in Genesis 2:15, God commands us to keep and care for the earth. We’re stewards of the earth and therefore, we must protect it. Throughout the Bible, we read of God’s compassion and love for His creatures, yet, we tend to find so much animal cruelty by our hands.
If we’re using and abusing the earth, we need to stop for God will not leave us unpunished (Revelation 11:18).
The fires in Australia were unfortunate, but how the locals came to the rescue of surviving wildlife, was also a reminder of how we should be caring for His creatures.
We have dominion over the earth. Let us stop misusing it and care for it as God intended when He placed man in Eden. The earth is not ours to do as we please. God is the Creator and Title Holder (Psalm 24:1) and He’s going to hold us responsible for how we care for it. Remember, the earth is our home, too. God didn’t create a earth so beautiful for us to pollute, plunder, strip, and burn.

It’s the end of the year!
I’m currently looking back at 2018 and reflecting on my walk with God, and I am still surprised at how fast the time just flew by! However, I cannot complain about 2018, for it drew me closer to God in many ways. I was reminded that I can’t always have what I want on my time and peace was given to me in ways I couldn’t even begin to describe.
I also learned to let go of unimportant things that I was holding onto. I’ve also thought about revamping the blog, but that would most definitely come next year God’s willing.
I’m taking a break from blogging this month… from this Wednesday God’s willing. During this time, I won’t be logging in at all. I plan to come back sometime in January or February God’s willing, so I’m going to take my jacket off…
…and just relax and bask in God’s presence. I’m going to miss you, but we’ll reconcile soon. 💙
Blessed décembre to all and keep walking with Jesus.
I hope you’re using time wisely!
Just yesterday, it seemed like it was the beginning of the year and I was contemplating my next move with life, work, and this blog. Now, we’re in novembre and whoa! The year is closing to make way for another new one be it God’s willing.
Regardless of the time getting away, I look at each month as a new beginning.
Challenge for novembre/NaNoWriMo
Despite having a story to work on, I won’t be participating in NaNoWriMo this time around. I don’t have the energy or passion for writing as I once had. Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy writing (from time to time) whether it’s short stories or blog posts, but I don’t really have that dose of special inspiration anymore. However, I’ll be sharing snippets of the story I wanted to work on for NaNo.
I’ll probably share how I came up with the title, introduce the identical duo, and tackle some twin stereotypes. I’ll also like to do the One Word At A Time Challenge syncing it with CRFT, but I’m not so sure at the moment. If you see too many twins in your reader during this month, don’t be alarmed. 😉
And all the best to all who are participating in NaNoWriMo this year. 😄
Blessed novembre to all and keep walking with Jesus.
Where is the time going, huh?
I know I don’t sound excited, but trust me, I am. 😁
I’ve been looking back at 2018 thus far and doing some reflecting. I’ve also been examining the changes and growth within me. I am not perfect and I am still a work in progress, but I’ll always take every opportunity to go to God in prayer and seek forgiveness if I have to. I am thankful for every breath I am given for every day I get closer to my Maker.
And time is certainly getting shorter.
Challenge for octobre
Every month I make plans to start something or complete something (tying up loose ends), but for some reason, I never get around to doing so. Also, I am in the process of revamping the blog once again, but those changes would come early next year God’s willing. Once again, I’ll try to make it my duty to get the product review done and the Tobago trip for this month.
Blessed octobre to all and keep walking with Jesus.
