Beginning of an Author's Reflection

In January 2014 my beautiful wife of 53 years suddenly and without warning went to heaven. As I reflected on those good years together I decided that for the rest of my life I would spend more time with the Lord and be an encouragement to everyone that I spoke to.  Sometime later one Saturday morning when I was worshipping the Lord I had an outstanding encounter with the Lord which lasted about 2 hours. During that encounter, I felt the Lord say to me that I was to pass on my Spiritual heritage before I died. To which I replied, “You have the wrong person because I have no Spiritual heritage”. Then the Lord reminded me of the unique way my father was saved and of his special relationship with the Lord which caused such a hunger for more of the Lord to grow in me which has never left me. He then reminded me of being part of a move of God in which the church grew from 60 to over 500 people and of many other situations in my life. Out of that encounter, I began to write my Reflection books, firstly  ‘Reflections of what is a Man’ then my spiritual Journey which I named ‘Reflections of a Man Who Didn’t Know What He Knew’, and after that ‘Reflections on the Old Testament’  also, ‘Reflections on the Kingdom of God’, ‘ Reflections on God’s way for us to change’ and Foundations For Christian Living. Also, I have written 10 booklets Reflections of a Married Man, Foundations for Christian Living Booklet 1, Foundations for Christian Living Booklet 2, Foundations for Christian Living Booklet 3, Foundations for Christian Living Booklet 4, Psalms that have impacted my life booklets 1-5 and Visitation or Habitation. It is my desire and belief that everyone who reads these books will be impacted by the anointing that is on my life and many lives will be drawn closer to the Lord.

As I have reflected on the goodness of God in my life this week, the words of this song have encouraged me. “Jesus is all the world to me, my life, my joy, my all, He is my strength from day to day, without Him I would fall; When I am sad to Him I go, no other one can cheer me so, when I am sad He makes me glad, He’s my friend”. I am so glad Jesus is real to me in this season of my life. Today I was encouraged by the testimonies of the children being touched by God at Children’s Camp. God is doing a great work in the church.

Most of my weeks are so predictable and being a creature of habit I do not mind. This week was so different, on Thursday morning I discovered water on the carpet near the hot water service so turned off the water and was able to get a plumber within an hour. Upon checking it was discovered that it was not my Hot Water service but the water was coming from the wall cavity. This was traced to a faulty Hot water service in the Unit above me by this time the amount of water on my carpet had grown to about 25% of the unit. At first, the owner of the unit refused to take responsibility for the cost of repair to the carpet but after the Chairman of the Body Corp. spoke to him he came and told me to arrange for the carpet cleaning and he would cover the cost. The carpet cleaner came the next morning and gave the owner the cost of the repairs which he refused to pay so the cleaner left. The chairman spoke to him and he came down and apologised for the pain that he had caused. So I contacted the cleaner and he could not come that day but would come early Saturday morning. At 7.15 am I got a call from the cleaner saying he would not be coming because last night had received a text message saying that he would not pay. I told the cleaner to come and I would pay the costs because it was essential for the cleaning to start today so at the moment I have 6 blowers blowing and they will be noisily doing this for the next 3-4 days. The chairman came to check on me today and thanked me for taking the initiative to solve the problem and assured me I would be reimbursed for the costs. Despite the unprecedented pressures of this week life is so good seeing the hand of God protecting me. The words of the song are so true “The God of the mountain is the God of the valley” I am so glad that the carpet can be cleaned and not have to be replaced, God is so good!

I am so glad that I fell madly in love with my ‘Honeybunch’ and had the pleasure of loving her and being loved by her for over 53 years. With that love growing stronger as the years passed by. However, no matter how great that love was it cannot be compared with the love of God. This Easter, we are reminded afresh of how that love affects us all. The Apostle Paul reminds us in 1 Corinthians 6:19b &20 where he declares: “You are not your own? For you were brought at a price, therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit”. May we at this Easter pause and assess how we glorify God by the way that we live and allow Him to flow through us and impact the people around us.
