Be hopeful


Be hopeful friends, when clouds are dark, and days are gloomy dreary.

Be hopeful even when the heart is sick, sad and weary.

Be hope, even when your plans are opposed and thwarted,

Go not upon life's battlefield, despondent or feint hearted.

And friends be hopeful of yourself, do by gone follies haunt you?

Forget them and begin a fresh,so let no hinderance daunt you.

Though unimportant life can seem, as you may begin it.

Press on, for victory's up ahead.  Be hopeful friends and win it.

Happiness and Pleasure Hmmn!


These are some of the quotes I have heard from friends, ministers and employers over the years that continually come back to me time and time again.

"Work is the meat of life and pleasure is the desert."

"Two people cannot hate each other if they profess to love God."

"The greatest and noblest pleasure one can have, is to discover new truths, the second is to shake off old prejudices."

"Some people seem to derive a lot of pleasure from being shocked at other people's sins"

"People who's main concern is their own happiness seldom find it"

"It's pretty hard to tell, looking at non-believers what brings them happiness.. wealth and poverty have both failed."

"Money can bring some pleasure, but only to those who find pleasure in earning it.."

"It's true money cannot buy happiness…well not at today's prices"

He never said it would be easy.. so why do we act so suprised?


Many of us who have come to accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour never truly considered the true cost of our relationship with Him.

"A some what profound statement I hear you utter, and I agree totally." But the gospel, which changes literally millions of people's lives all around the globe daily, is profound in itself. For Christ Himself said;

Luke 14v28-29 (NKJ)
28. "For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it..
29. "lest, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him."

How often do we desire to share our faith with others, but allow fear to hinder us? Christ has called us tobe his witnesses, not only called us but equipped us to do His will, not through our own strength, but through His grace and His spirit.
His commitment to us was unquestionable. His love undying, His limits unending.

Each day let us remind ourselves of this and with God's helpand our daily submission, strive towards the mark. Prayer is our direct link to Him. So as we at the Walk to Glory pray that He uses us to encourage and bless you all, please pray likewise that He uses you tobless others with His words and Love.

God Bless

At All Times..


Wherever you may venture, I will follow thee.
I will forever be by your side.

Wherever your destination,
I will journey ahead and prepare your welcome.

Whenever thou art lonely,
I will be thy comforter in every circumstance.

Whenever thou may weaken,
I will be thy strenth and shield.

Whenever thou art happy,
I will rejoice in your songs of praise with delight.

Though I remain at thy side, I will be quiet,
But my light within thee shall never grow dimn.

Should thou ever despair and call on my name,
I will be there, right by your side,
Through every season of your life.

Wherever you lay your head to rest,
I will be there to watch over you.

When you arise,
I will be ready to guide your new day.

In your absence,
Though you may be seperated from your family,
Worry not a moment…

I will keep watch there also,
And provide their daily needs.

I am the Good Shepherd and I look after my sheep,
Wherever they may be scattered.

In time you willbe restored to your family.
And as you rejoice, so toowill the Lord your God.

Therefore, be Blessed and carry forth the Gospel,
Which lights your way in Faith,
And with all confidence, be Blessed 



A man was watching his eighty year old neighbour planting a small Peach Tree. He inquired of him as follows:

"You don't expect to eat Peaches from that tree, do you?"
The old man rested on his spade.
He said "No , at my age I know I won't. But all my life I have enjoyed Peaches, never from a tree I have planted myself. I'm just trying to pay the other fellows who planted the trees for me."

We all enjoy the fruit of another persons labour, as each generation has left something from which we now benefit. Numerous individuals have spent their whole lives developing all the technology, medication and forms of transportation and never lived to see the end results. Yet they have been remembered and acknowledged for their inspiring life enhancing work.

God, through Christ Jesus layed foundations for mankind in such a dramatic way. His actions were not born out of inspiration, no, something much deeper and longer lasting; LOVE.

May He grant us the grace, wisdom and courage to go forward into 2009 and be frutful in all our endeavours towards our fellow man.

Col 1v10-11
10. that we may have a walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God;
11. strenthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and long suffering with joy;
(NKJ Bible)
