"We can teach people how to hear God and have their questions and longing answered by Him, or we can give people all the answers and take away their need for a relationship with Holy Spirit. False teachers think they have all the answers, which consequently causes people to stop searching for the depths of God. It's the Spirit that leads us into all Truth." ~ KrisVallotton 

This really made me think and reexamine what it is I am hoping to see happen through Teaching the Word (Preaching the Gospel). I've always held to the belief that Teachers (all Five-Fold Ministry Gifts for that matter), are to lead people into an experience with the Living God (for themselves), Teaching them not to be necessarily dependent upon us, but instead how to be taught by Holy Spirit. 

Mind you it always good to seek out godly counsel and direction, but ultimately, we need to get a revelation of the Word for ourselves. You'll find, at least I did, that it is hard (if not impossible) in times of great struggle, when life throws those curve balls as it does, to stand on what Pastor believes (his revelation and convictions, that is, if they are not yet our own). 

We should be taking what we hear taught and preached, and first testing it (search it out in the Word ourselves), then asking God to give us a revelation of it for ourselves. You'll find (again as I did), it is much easier to stand upon your own convictions when tough times come a knocking, then to try and recall what Pastor said 5 Sundays ago about the situation you're facing.

Food for thought

Here are a few things you’ll miss if you decide to move out of my city.

Some of the networks can change a life forever.That is one of the things that make Lagos a great place to be which you will surely miss when you leave this town.

1. “You are part of the universe; you are made of stars. When you look at your loved one, you see that he is also made of stars and carries eternity inside. Looking in this way, we naturally feel reverence.”
2. “Other people’s actions are the result of their own pain and not the result of any intention to hurt you.”
3. “Every child is born in the garden of humanity as a flower. Each flower differs from every other flower. There are many messages in our society that tell us, even when we’re young people, that there’s something wrong with us and that if we just buy the right product, or look a certain way, or have the right partner, that will fix it. As grown-ups, we can remind young people that they’re already beautiful as they are; they don’t have to be someone else.”
4. “Every one of us is trying to find our true home. Some of us are still searching. Our true home is inside, but it’s also in our loved ones around us. When you’re in a loving relationship, you and the other person can be a true home for each other.”
5. “When you love someone, you have to have trust and confidence. Love without trust is not yet love. Of course, first you have to have trust, respect, and confidence in yourself. Trust that you have a good and compassionate nature.”
6. “Understanding someone’s suffering is the best gift you can give another person. Understanding is love’s other name. If you don’t understand, you can’t love.”
7. “The first element of true love is loving kindness. The essence of loving kindness is being able to offer happiness. You can be the sunshine for another person. You can’t offer happiness until you have it for yourself. So build a home inside by accepting yourself and learning to love and heal yourself. Learn how to practice mindfulness in such a way that you can create moments of happiness and joy for your own nourishment. Then you have something to offer the other person.”
8. “When we feed and support our own happiness, we are nourishing our ability to love. That’s why to love means to learn the art of nourishing our happiness.”
9. “Love is a living, breathing thing. There is no need to force it to grow in a particular direction. If we start by being easy and gentle with ourselves, we will find it is just there inside of us, solid and healing.”

Todays little project was fit a 12v socket to the dash of my Transalp to power my GPS etc. There are as many ways of doing this as there are stars in the sky, some people run a feed through an ignition activated relay and put and inline fuse, personally I try to keep things simple so I don't need to worry about the relay failing or the fuse holder suffering from corrosion. 
  • Step 1: Figure out where to mount it, if you want to remove it at any point, fitting it to a removable panel means it's cheap to buy another panel to restore the bike. Make sure it's not going to catch on the bars even when the plug is in and there is room behind the panel to fit the socket. 
  • Step 2: Run a length of wire for +&- more than the length you think you will need and wrap in insulation tape, feed through the frame. (I've always stuck as close to the look as I can) cable tie the wires to the loom and make sure their not going to get trapped by the forks, tank, seat etc. Read to know more about deep cycle battery

  • Step 3: 2 spade clips make their own fuse holder ! A normal 10a fuse in this case fitted close to the battery then taped up. Easy to get to and non complicated. 
  • Step 4: Fit two hoops to the end of the +&- cables and connect to the battery making sure to insulate the cables again as far as you can and cable tie them to avoid them bouncing and rubbing. 
  • Step 5: Have a cup of tea, put bike back together and job done... ready for the road trip tomorrow.
