Testimony from a doctor in Italy

😢🙏🙏🙏

YAHWEH-NISSI

“there are no atheists in fox holes”

A testimony by Julian Urban, 38 years old, doctor in Lombardy:

Never in my darkest nightmares did I imagine that I would have seen and lived through what has been happening here in our hospital for the last three weeks. And the nightmare only grows; the river becomes bigger and bigger. At the beginning only a few arrived, then dozens, and then hundreds, and now we are no longer doctors, we have become mere sorters who decide who should live and who must be sent home to die, even if they are people who have paid Italian taxes for their whole life.

Up until two weeks ago, my colleagues and I were atheists; this was normal because we are doctors and we have learned that science proves that God does not exist. I always laughed at my parents when they went to church.

Becoming a Speaker of Life

Hierdie is vir my baie spesiaal

YAHWEH-NISSI

Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs him down, but a good word makes him glad.” Proverbs 12:25 (ESV)

One day, when Everett came home after a long, tiresome day at work, he was surprised to see candles lit throughout the house. The kitchen table was set for two and danced with candlelight in their modest home. In his gregarious, teasing fashion, Everett turned to his wife and said, “What meanest thou this?

Well, we’ve been married exactly six months today,” Jane explained, “and I thought we would eat by candlelight tonight.

That sounded like a welcomed romantic idea to Everett, so he went to the bathroom to wash up for dinner. Jane hadn’t put a candle in the bathroom, so Everett turned to flip the switch. No light came on. Then he walked across the hall to the dark…

“We have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.”   2 Corinthians 4:7

When I read this verse in my morning devotions today, my mind went in several different directions. It immediately brought to mind a couple of verses from the Old Testament book of Isaiah.

“You, Lord, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.”   Isaiah 64:8

and

Shall what is formed say to the one who formed it, ‘You did not make me’? Can the pot say to the potter, ‘You know nothing’”?   Isaiah 29:16

We are all vessels shaped by God’s hands for His purpose, not our own.

Next, my mind went to the value of a clay pot. Many are plain on the outside and made for ordinary everyday…

Wat Is Anderkant Jou “Ja”?

YAHWEH-NISSI

Maria laat dit so maklik lyk. Die engel Gabriël sê vir haar dat sy geboorte gaan skenk aan die Seun van God, en sy reageer met ‘n onmiddellike oorgawe aan haar rol in God se plan. Wat het Maria gedink? Sy het geen versekering gehad dat alles goed gaan uitwerk nie. As ‘n maagd, wat verloof was, op die punt om te trou, het sy heel moontlik geweet hoe moeilik dit sou wees om geboorte te gee en Jesus groot te maak. Die enigste versekering wat sy gehad het, was God se Woord, en dit was vir haar genoeg om “ja” te sê.

In 1 Petrus 1 sê die apostel dat die egtheid van ons geloof na vore kom te midde van die moeilike omstandighede wat ons in die gesig staar. God vra dikwels dat ons Hom sal vertrou in die moeilike, ongemaklike en skynbaar onmoontlike tye. Hoe dikwels reageer…

Skep ń atmosfeer vir presteer …

YAHWEH-NISSI

Hy het vir hom gesê: “Moenie bang wees nie, want my pa sal jou nie in die hande kry nie. Jy sal koning word oor Israel, en ek sal onder jou staan. Selfs my pa weet dat dit so is. (📖 1 Samuel 23:17 📖)

Die miljardêr-sakeman Charles Schwab het ń treffende aanhaling: “Ek moet nog die persoon ontmoet, ongeag sy status of die amp … wat nie beter werk gelewer en ń groter poging aangewend het om sukses te behaal nie as gevolg van ń gees van aanmoediging, in plaas van kritiek.” Ons weet almal dat ‘aanmoediging’ verloorders in wenners kan omskep. Ongelukkig is dit ook so dat mense mekaar so maklik afkraak en mekaar se vlammetjies eerder blus.

Dit kan ander negatief maak, onwaardig en minderwaardig laat voel en dikwels verby breekpunt bring. Dit is ń feit dat mense mekaar harder met die tong kan slaan as…
