“I wonder if it’ll be painful when I hit the ground”, Jacob thought as he stared down from his position on the bridge.  “It should be quick though … it’ll have to do.
He was looking down at the ground far below.  He closed his swollen eyes as he leaned forward, clinging to the rails behind him with his hands.  “If I let go now, I’ll just fall … I’ll fall and all of this will go away.”  He was shivering, but he wasn't afraid to die.  It was living that terrified him.  Life became unbearable after the invasion.
He felt the tugging of the wind on his clothes and he opened his eyes.  He was hanging from the edge of a bridge, overlooking the city.  The bridge was quite high, connecting two hills.  A small stream was moving somberly far below the bridge.  From his perch he had a good broad view of the desolated city a couple of miles away.
Almost not
:iconsaykha:saykha 1 3
The sun rose the day you were born
and Earth and Heaven cheered with Me,
knowing a great daughter has been born,
a soldier of great destiny.
And in life she will rise with hope,
and at times she'll be cast down.
But she will find Me on her knees,
and so her strength, in Me, is found.
So fear not my love,
I am with you.
You have more strength than you think.
You have the power deep in you,
to make cities crumble
and mountains sink.
For life might seem to cast you down
you will rise unscathed and stronger,
until that day I strike them down
and I uplift you like a tower.
And all will tell you in that day
We never knew that God could do this
But you were faithful and your feet stayed,
My hand carried you through it.
So when the sun turns to black
and the night starts to fall,
Do not fear, do not relent
Remember who you are.

The Mirror
Seduced were her hands,
as her fingers traced the delectable edge
of the shimmering shattered glass.
In remembrance she smelled
the beauty of her own reflection,
as she had endeared upon her radiance
in a time when she had kept the mirror whole.
how it still sang out to her,
these shattered shards of memories past.
Until her remembrance whispered
why she broke the mirror long ago.
Trapped was her heart
in the confines of that frame.
Blinded, she saw none but herself.
Until one day she saw a shimmering light
and it gave light to her corruption and filth.
In horror she pulled her hands to herself,
knowing the mirror will make her forget.
That she saw a light that was virtuous and true.
She must chase it
until in her hands it is set.

Excerpt: Grandpa
"Heroes never live long", my grandpa always used to say, "When you offer your heart to the masses, it gets consumed very quickly. There isn't much to show in the end ... not much of the hero, anyway." He always used to look so somber when he said it, like he had suffered a terribly deep loss once, under the name a hero.
I always wanted to ask him what happened, but I never could. You can see in a person's eyes which questions would topple them over the edge, into utter despair.

Through the Ash
If you look closely, through the darkened ash, you could see the silhouette of beasts with wings on their backs. The battle had left the air thick with dust and death, making it almost impossible to see anything.  Strange ... how the faint glimpse of the winged creatures terrified me more than the sound of the person choking on their last breath next to me.

Testimony: God saves a man from hi-jackers
The day God hi-jacked the hi-jackers
An article published in Christian Living Today Magazine
Gauteng-based evangelists, Des and Ros Sinclair have overcome many near-death experiences through their faith in God. Al Gibson captures their extraordinary lives and ministry in the book Life On the Line. Here is a short extract:
Ros and Des Sinclair have experienced God’s supernatural protection many times, and have seen how the Lord can intervene to change people’s hearts and bring about reconciliation between different races, but little did they expect what God would do to show them some light at the end of the tunnel when it came to combating crime in their own lives.
White man, you deserve to die
On 8 May 2002 Des was driving to Soshenguve Township north of Pretoria, where he was scheduled to preach at a high school. It was 6:30am when he was held up by four armed men.
“Get out of the car or we’ll kill you!” one man said, leaning through

Testimony: Cancer Healed

Sun Oct 28, 2018, 4:20 AM
God came through in yet another amazing way :heart: My Mom met this lady, Martie, on the 27th of May 2018 and something amazing happened:

Martie is 70 years old, and when my mom met her in May, she was a victim of lymph node cancer which had also spread to her breasts.  She had been diagnosed with cancer in 2012 (6 years ago), had 12 operations and also went through chemotherapy.  She had been in remission, until 3 weeks before my Mom met her, when tests showed that the cancer was back - and had spread.  She wasn’t in a good place, and it seemed like she had already given up.

My Mom told her that, more than 2 thousands years ago, Jesus already paid the price for her healing on the cross.  This cancer was a lie.  As she told her this, you could see realization sweep over her - God was really speaking to her.  My Mom immediately recognized her faith.  She continued by adding that she was speaking death over her body by acknowledging time and again that she has cancer.  There is power in what we speak over ourselves; there is power in the tongue.   Martie then repented for all the times she had spoken death over herself and she and my Mom prayed together for her healing.  They proclaimed that there will not be any cancer in her body - not anymore.

The very next day Martie called.  She was in tears and told my Mom that she had gone to her Doctor’s appointment that morning.  Her Doctor could not find any trace of cancer in her body!  It was all gone.  Her Doctor was amazed, telling Martie that this could only have been a miracle.

God is so good :heart: Martie took the Truth God placed before her, and she believed Him.  She isn't sick anymore.

We always have to remember just how good God is :heart:  If you find yourself in an impossible situation, or someone has given you a death sentence, always remember that God can do anything - He is the God of miracles and nothing is impossible for Him to do.  Don't lose hope!

"I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?"
Jer 32:27
