Experience of Temptation

Count it all joy when you fall into divers temptations. Not all of us understand the meaning and purpose of temptation. We think of it as an effort of Satan to destroy us. That is what Satan intends, but that is not God’s intention concerning temptation. Jesus was not only tempted, but He was led, driven, by The Holy Spirit to His temptation. He could not be our Saviour until He was tempted – that is, tried and proved. So we read here, “Blessed is the man that endures temptation.” The beatitude is not for him who has not been tempted, but for him who has met temptation and has been victorious. It certainly seems a strange thing to read that we should count it all joy when we fall into manifold temptations. We regret to see our friends come under sore temptation or to have to be tempted ourselves; but we learn here that we may even count it joy to have the experience. Temptation is therefore an opportunity. Blessings lie beyond it, which cannot reach in any other way but through the experience of temptation.

Top Baby Names For 2015
It's that time of year again when Nameberry releases the top baby names in the USA. Americans take naming their child so seriously so it's no wonder that thousands of new parents are scanning this list today. Names come and go in popularity rankings over the years but in the United States, naming a child is much more than just a cute name. It's a social statement. It not only has to have a certain vibe, but also a certain sound. Many parents pick names just based off the first letter so that their initials all match. Some kids have to have names that have letters to create an acronym : (CAT : Cathryn Alice Turner). Some must sound more sophisticated or appropriate for their state and economic/social background. Also, many new parents imagine what kind of careers would match certain names so that their kid will have an immediate sense of professionalism. Some parents like to mimic favorite tv or movie characters or name their kids after famous celebrities, athletes, or public figures. You can never name your kid something that is too hard to say but you don't want your kid to be the 7th Katie or Alex. Names today are picked based off of coolness factor and trying to prevent the possibility of your child being bullied. And OF COURSE everyone seems to be shocked when celebrities name their children intimate objects, directions, or colors such as Gwyneth Paltrow's Apple, Kim Kardashian's North, and Beyoncé's Blue Ivy.

“I Lost Fear of Losing What I Never Wanted to Lose Forever” by Lumina H.
“I Lost Fear of Losing What I Never Wanted to Lose Forever” by Lumina H. Once upon a time, in my worst nightmare I screamed in the middle of the night “Don’t Leave Me!” Fear of being abandoned Fear of being rejected Fear of being replaced Horror strikes like lightning Blitz, Blitz, Blitz Every thunder of anxiety electrocuted me I’ve been punched, kicked and screamed at I know all too well how it feels to be treated like dirt I’ve been to hell and back, both inside and outside my head. So what I feared most in this world Was you, of you turning your back on me Never to return, ever. Fear brought anxiety, pain, worry, stress, anger, fury, insomnia and finally tears Buckets, trucks, pools of tears Gradually my tears filled up a swimming pool And in my swimming pool of tears I drowned myself And I needed a CPR But no one came… The water was still trapped in my lungs And I forgot how to breath, how to live I was dying I had seconds to live Could I live again? Could anyone give me new life? Could anyone revive me? Somebody… Anybody… Please help me… In my desperate need, I pleaded, prayed and hoped And then, right then Someone did come to my rescue But He wasn’t you He was unexpected While you left me drowning He came with a thousand letters of love and care I didn’t know Him He was a stranger to me But to him, I was no stranger He had been waiting for me all along He watched me dive into the ocean of tears He watched me as I sunk deeper into the sea of sorrow He always wanted to help me, to save me He never wanted me to drown myself, never He wanted me to live To live without Fear. To live without Fear of abandonment To live without Fear of rejection To live without Fear of replacement To live bravely, fearlessly, hopefully, gratefully To live honestly, courageously, earnestly, kindly To live with everything I had replaced with fear He breathed new air into my lungs Water came spluttering out of my throat My heart started beating again I could feel the blood rushing faster in my veins I’m alive! I’m alive! I’m alive! I’ve been Saved! Saved! Saved! My new savior will show me ways not to be afraid of losing you I’ve already lost you once And from now he will show me never to fear Losing you again and again Because in the far future Fast forward to many years later Here I am The future me said “I lost fear of losing what I never wanted to lose forever” “I lost fear of losing you, who I never wanted to lose, never” So today I wait, I hope, I run, I believe, I trust Towards that future of losing fear of losing you.
