Most black eye injuries aren’t serious. The discoloration is caused by bleeding of the skin under the eye; gently apply a cold pack or a cloth filled with ice to the area several times a day for a day or two. Incase you develop vision problems, severe pain or bleeding in your eye or form your nose, see a doctor.
If you know someone who is depressed provide support and encouragement by:

- Give positive reinforcement.
- Remind them how much they mean to you.
- Make plans together.
- Take walks and meals together.
- Do not forget to PRAY for them.
Walking on Water : Mathew 14:22-23
Jesus spoke to Peter and said ” come ” Peter got out of the boat without any waste of time and came towards Jesus (Mathew 14:29). When he took his eyes off Jesus and focused on the storm, his faith began to waver and he began sinking.
Life’s destructions can be enemies of faith, maintain your focus on the goal and you will walk in victory.
Walking on water requires:-
- A faith anchored in God’s word
- A faith that steps out
- A faith focused on the goal
- A faith that prays
- A faith that depends on God
A life of victory is possible for all. Victory is not far away from you. Victory is within you. Believe in God’s word concerning your destiny. Shut your ears to the distracting whispers of the enemy ( John 10:10)
He has come tha t you may receive unlimited favor. Amen
Have a great week.
That’s the issue.
Rev Dr. A. Kanga,
Right from Genesis God gave Adam and Eve all they ever needed. That is, created them in His image and likeness, blessed them, gave them dominion over the whole creation and gave them one another, but they forsook all these for self ratification. God had given his word which clearly demonstrates that the consequence of obedience to His word is blessing as disobedience brings curses and hardship. However, given that no man can thwart God’s purpose of His creation, He took a gracious redemptive journey of restoring man back to Himself. This redemptive journey finds its biblical thread from Abraham ( Gen 12:1-3 ) to our Lord Jesus Christ.
Our understanding of God’s unlimited favor should be informed by our understanding of God’s Justice, Mercy and Grace. The justice of God demands our death as sinners while His mercy is what helps us not to receive death which is rightfully and His grace the means through which we get the good that we do not deserve ( external life plus all the good from God) and that is unlimited favor.
Without God’s mercy and unlimited favor we would die. Everyday God supplies us with the light of the sun, air to breath and something to eat and drink. He gave His only begotten son our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ, whose ministry on earth was to restore us to God the father so that we could operate to our greatest potential and oms importantly enjoy eternal life. Apart from Christ He also gave us His word in the bible which we must read and hide its message in our hearths that we may not sin against Him (Psalm 119:11) in such a way that what it teaches becomes a part of us.
