Waterproof - Principle 12


"Dear brothers and sisters, 
when trouble comes your way,
consider it an opportunity for great joy.
For you know that when your 
faith is tested, your endurance
has a chance to grow." James 1:2,3

Did Jesus ever promise us rosy circumstances?
When you become a christian  you'll wake up to a rainbow each
morning, with everyone's warm smiles greeting you.
Your children will always be clean, healthy..the white fence and all that...
Like the slogan on my pajamas says: "Wakey, wakey, tea and cakey..."

Last night I watched a film, a testimony of a Muslim gentleman in Africa.
He was a strong Muslim and spiritual leader in his village.
He went to sleep one night and Jesus appeared to him in a dream. 
Jesus told him He loved him. He showed him that he wanted him to read the Bible, 
The word of God.
He also said, No one can come to the Father except through me.
He had numerous dreams after this and consequently decided to accept Jesus.
After he had made this choice he suffered various trials.
His own father disowned him publicly and also poisoned him, tried to kill him
on various occasions, but each time God made a way for him.
He suffered rejection from his own father, his own people.
In the end, because he stood strong, his father called for him
when he was sick in the hospital. He asked his son to forgive him
and his son said, I have already forgiven you because this is what my
God teaches me to do and then his led his father
into the kingdom of God and his father accepted  Jesus
also as his Lord and Savior.

This man stood strong throughout this process and reaped
a harvest at the end. Endurance and
loooooooongsuffering!

The parable of the Protea Flower
(from the south african christian magazine, My World)
 was revealed  to me by The Great I am when my firstborn
came into this life. She was very close to death, she
went through fire and so did we as her parents.
Let me tell you,
 it was most difficult for us, but God was always there with us.
And today she is running around and playing, bringing so
much joy and life into our home.

a Protea Flower only starts to germinate
after it has burned. Then the Flower...

"WHEN YOU GO THROUGH
DEEP WATERS, 
I WILL BE WITH YOU.
WHEN YOU GO THROUGH RIVERS
OF DIFFICULTY, 
YOU WILL
NOT DROWN.
WHEN YOU WALK 
THROUGH THE FIRE,
YOU WILL NOT BE BURNED UP,
THE FLAMES WILL NOT CONSUME YOU."
Isaiah 43:2

Take heart, Jesus has overcome.....

Joshua Na Die Reën & Liani Reynolds

    Liani Reynolds en Jacques van Joshua na die Reën

Joshua Na Die Reën het al ‘n huishoudelike naam geword in Suid Afrika en almal wat sy musiek hoor is gaande daaroor. Vir die rede was Affies Seunsskool, in Pretoria, se saal vol gepak met afwagting op sy nuutste album. Almal het uitgesien na sy gevoelvolle stem wat gemaklik hoog en dan weer laag deur jou hart sny met sy sielvolle lirieke. Jy kan sy musiek voel en jou hart kan dit verstaan. Ek dink dis hoekom so baie mense sy musiek geniet. Ons, ek en Lenetjie, was ook baie opgewonde om Liani Reynolds se album te beleef, veral vir dié wat haar unieke diep stem gehoor het op die Lugballon enkelsnit van Musiek soos Grond. Laat ek vir jou ‘n prentjie skets van die heerlike aand sodat jy kan voel asof jy ook daar was. Ek deel graag met julle my belewenis.


Voor die konsert het ons vinnig ‘n paar fotos geneem en geselsies aangeknoop met sangers, radio omroepers en Jacques se ma wat op kort kennis kaartjies verkoop het.

Die klippie in my skoen - geskryf deur iskra

Wat 'n knaende verraad! Daardie klippie in die skoen. Daardie ding wat krap en pla en mens soms verleë laat. Dis 'n pes as jy dalk jaag van hier na daar, soveel dinge wat aan jou trek; jou aandag vat; daar is nie tyd nie! Vir jou om net te kan sit, skoen uittrek en die verdomde ding uitgooi! Pfffeeeu...! Wat 'n verligting as hy eers weg is!

So klein dingetjie met soveel praat in sy kneuse...daardie klippie in die skoen.
(Talk about rubbing me up the wrong way!)

Ons het almal maar ons klippies. Klein goedjies wat haak en pla. Daagliks knaag dit aan ons..maal dit rond in ons koppe, laatnag, wannneer ons eintlik moet slaap...

Ons veiligheid.
Ons kinders se toekoms, gesondheid. Hoe gaan jy hierdie maand daardie rekening betaal?
Jou huwelik of 'n vriendskap is dalk op 'n snaakse plek of selfs naby skipbreek?

Dalk ons eie gesondheid wat 'n lelike rapport gekry het... 'n finale een...wat jou asem weggeruk het...wat jou, die mense om jou, dae en minute met 'n ander o…

Noem My Skollie - Die Resensie

#NasieInspirasie
Fliekresensie: Noem My Skollie




Duur: 2.5 ure

Skrywer: John W. Fredericks

Regie: Daryne Joshua

Vervaardiger: David Max Brown

Klankbaan: Kyle Shepherd
(Geskik vir kykers vanaf 18jaar)

Kyk, dis die eerste fliek wat my binne my sitplek in die teater laat voel het ek is verseker nié veilig nie. Noem My Skollie is hard en onverskrokke, maar baie eg tot die werklikheid. Die feit dat die film gebaseer is op John W. Fredericks (die skrywer) se lewensverhaal, maak dit net meer roerend.

Na jy dié wêreld van daaglikse geweld en oorlewing op die Kaapse vlaktes en in Pollsmoor se tronk uitgebeeld gesien het, sal jy sukkel om weer op dieselfde, haai-shame-dis-darem-erg manier daar verby te ry. Gevolglik speel baie gebeure af in areas waar jy as kyker al self voetspore gelos het, en dít bring die film ook baie nader aan jou eie lewe.

AB, Gimba, Gif en Shorty is tipiese jong seuns wat in die 1960’s hul geluk uitprobeer in hul eie bende, Young Ones, totdat AB en Gimba deur die polisie gevang …
