"I am a Christian"

When I say... "I am a Christian" I`m not shouting "I`m clean livin`" I`m whispering "I was lost", Now I`m found and forgiven.
When I say..."I am a Christian" I don`t speak of this with pride. I`m confessing that I stumble and need CHRIST to be my guide.
When I say... "I am a Christian" I`m not trying to be strong. I`m professing that I`m weak and need HIS strength to carry on.
When I say... "I am a Christian" I`m not bragging of success. I`m admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.
When I say... "I am a Christian" I`m not claiming to be perfect, My flaws are far too visible but, God believes I am worth it.
When I say... "I am a Christian" I still feel the sting of pain, I have my share of heartaches So I call upon His name.
When I say... "I am a Christian" I`m not holier than thou, I`m just a simple sinner who received God`s good grace somehow.

godiz - I love this poem I found :-)

Food poisoning often occurs when food is improperly stored, prepared, or served. Symptoms of food poisoning include: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain or stomach cramps, a low-grade fever, headaches, and muscle aches. If you think you are suffering from food poisoning, there are some natural cures you may want to utilize in treating your condition. Please read on to discover some natural cures for food poisoning.

Apple Cider Vinegar: One of the cures for food poisoning is apple cider vinegar. Suggests taking two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar on an empty stomach. The acidic nature of apple cider vinegar is supposed to kill the bad bacteria in the stomach, which causes food poisoning.
Garlic: Garlic is another natural cure for food poisoning. Juice one clove of garlic and drink the juice. Alternatively, cut up one clove of garlic and swallow it like a pill with some water. Garlic will help your stomach as it has anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral properties.
Bread: Eating some bread is another natural cure for food poisoning. It says eating bread can help soak up some of the bad bacteria in the stomach and provide quick relief for the symptoms of food poisoning.
Caraway Tea: Another cure for food poisoning is caraway tea.  Recommends drinking one cup of caraway tea three times a day to treat food poisoning. In a cup, place one teaspoon of caraway seeds and add one cup of boiling water. Cover the cup and allow it to sit for 10 minutes. Strain and drink.
Ginger Tea: It is well known that ginger is a good stomach soother. Ginger tea is another natural cure for food poisoning; it relieves stomach cramps and upset caused by the condition. Add ½ teaspoon of ground ginger to one cup of boiling water. Allow it to sit for 3-5 minutes before straining and drinking.
Edible Gum, Poppy Seed, Sugar, Cardamom, and Nutmeg Mixture: This mixture is a great cure for food poisoning. To make the mixture, ground one teaspoon cardamom powder, one teaspoon poppy seeds, two teaspoons sugar, one teaspoon edible gum, and ½ teaspoon of nutmeg powder into a powder. Eat the mixture every two hours to treat the condition.
Papaya: Papaya is another good natural cure for food poisoning. Grate a raw papaya or cut it into small cubes. Add the papaya to one to two cups of water and allow it to boil for 15-20 minutes. Drain the liquid and drink. Drink this remedy three to four times a day for food poisoning.


Here are the top five easy and quick home remedies to get instant relief from food poising:

1. Ginger: Ginger is a well known remedy for various gastrointestinal distresses. Loaded with potent anti-inflammatory compounds ginger helps quell nausea and gastric distress. Chewing a piece of ginger tossed in honey helps relieve the severity of nausea. Ginger tea relieves stomach cramps and upset caused by food poisoning.

2. Cumin: Add a tablespoon of crushed cumin seeds to the soup to soothe the inflammation in your stomach. Crushed cumin with fenugreek powder mixed with a glass of water or half a cup crud helps relive abdominal pain and vomiting. Cumin seeds are of great benefit to the digestive system as they help stimulate the secretion of pancreatic enzymes, compounds necessary for proper digestion and nutrient assimilation.

3. Basil: Basil is another excellent home remedy to cure stomach infection due to its anti-bacterial properties. 

Taking juice of basil leaves with water empty stomach in the morning enhances digestive power. Basil juice helps stop vomiting immediately. Strain the juice of a few basil leaves and add it to a tablespoon of honey to get instant relief.

Mix chopped basil leaves, sea salt and one shake of black pepper to three tablespoon of crud. Take the mixture three times in a day till you are totally cured of food poisoning. It will also cure any cramps or gas problem associated with food poisoning.

4. Lemon: The acidity of the lemon juice kills the micro-organism and toxins in the gastrointestinal tract.

Squeeze juice of a lemon and add a pinch of sugar to it and drink, or you can even add lemon to your tea.

Since fluid intake is very important as one tends to lose more water through diarrhea taking lemon juice in short intervals helps you keep hydrated.

5. Peppermint tea: Peppermint oil helps relieve symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, including indigestion, dyspepsia, and colonic muscle spasms. It is extremely beneficial for people suffering from stomach spasms due to food poisoning. Add a few drops to your tea; your cramps will vanish in a couple of hours.

In addition to these natural remedies for food poisoning, remember it is important to avoid solid foods while you are vomiting. Drink plenty of clear liquids, such as water, tea, and apple juice while experiencing vomiting and diarrhea in order to keep hydrated as well. Rest as much as possible when experiencing food poisoning so that your body can heal. If you are suffering from food poisoning, try one of these cures for food poisoning in order to speed up the healing process.


  • Avoid solid foods until vomiting ends. Then eat light, bland foods, such as saltine crackers, bananas, rice, or bread.
  • Don’t eat fried, greasy, spicy, or sweet foods.
  • Don’t take medication without asking your doctor.
  • Drink clear fluids, starting with small sips and gradually drinking more.


precautions at home by following these tips:
  • Keep mixed foods, such as salads with mayonnaise dressing and foods that contain dairy products, refrigerated.
  • Thaw meat in the refrigerator, not at room temperature.
  • Stuff turkeys or roasts just before cooking -- or cook the stuffing separately.
  • Keep perishable foods cold.
  • Cook chicken, pork, and beef very thoroughly.
  • Wash hands, utensils, and surfaces with very hot water and soap after handling meat or eggs.

Distorted Thinking?

Sexual Abuse

Bible Study: Sexual abuse is probably the most violent, brutal, and degrading form of suffering. Flashbacks and night terrors will rob you of sleep. Sounds, sights, smells, and touch will trigger old memories. Trying to defend your honor can result in yelling, screaming, and character assassinations. You might be constantly blamed, shamed, misunderstood, or even called possessed. The emotional pain might become so intense it causes you to consider ending your life or the life of your abuser. The stories of sexual abuse in the Bible appear in 2 Samuel 13:1-22, when Tamar was raped by her half-brother, Ammon, and in Genesis 34:2, when Dinah was raped by prince Shechem. Healing from sexual abuse is not an easy process, and it will take  time and understanding to stop feeling like a victim. Healing might take years of crying, prying, writing, yelling, screaming, and psychotherapy to improve your self-esteem, poor self-image, and distorted body image. During that time, you will suffer, by not eating or sleeping, isolating yourself from others, and feeling alone, angry, misunderstood, and betrayed. You must find a way to deal with your suffering and anger. You can find comfort and encouragement in knowing that God will never leave or forsake you (Isa. 41:10; Heb. 13:5-6). What Jesus says about life in Matthew 10:34-39 may explain part of why you experienced what you did. Be assured God is in control of your life - you can let go the memories of abuse, stop focusing on them, and instead focus on living one day at a time before your loving God. God will send trustworthy people to journey with you and assist in your healing. LOVE yourself. TRUST yourself. Love and trust GOD. He is with you and will never leave you. God knows, cares, and understands. The Scriptures do not offer any easy solutions to suffering. However, we should look at the way Christ handled suffering. He should be our model. The suffering He experienced on this earth and the heavenly victory He celebrates today shows us that our suffering is not in vain. With God's help, we will win the victory!
Read 2 Samuel 13:1-22; see also Genesis 34:1-31; Judges 11:29-40; Psalm 31.

Date Rape

Bible Study: Rape is a horrible, devastating experience. Victims may even find themselves in a life-threatening situation. The feeling of humiliation, helplessness, fear, and anger permeate their being. With date rape, people are not only physically and emotionally violated, but the pain is inflicted by someone they trust and with whom they are socially involved. The story of Tamar in 2 Samuel 13 offers some solace. Tamar was sexually assaulted by someone she knew, then cast aside like dirt. That is often how a woman who has experienced date rape feels - dirty. She often asks herself, How could I have been so foolish to trust him? 
She is left feeling very alone and ashamed to look at herself. She may feel as though she has no one to whom she can talk. She may feel too ashamed to tell anyone. There are days when she wants to scream - scream until the anger disappears or until her voice is no longer audible. Other women may try to soothe her by reminding her that "God will never put on you more than you can bear" or by saying, "Take your burdens to the Lord and leave them there." At those times words are not enough. What is needed is a breakthrough: inner peace and an elevation of one's low-as-it-can-go self-esteem. A term in the Christian church that one hears but rarely gives much thought to is purge. To purge means "to rid one of guilt and defilement, to be free from impurity." Only God can purge a person who has experienced date rape. As you read God's holy and healing Word you rediscover the sense of security that is often destroyed when one has been physically and emotionally violated. In Psalm 91 the psalmist encourages himself by recalling the great, awesome power of God to protect and deliver His own from the evil that may befall them. As you read this psalm, allow the words to become personal. Talk to God as the psalmist did, allowing the cleansing power of God's Word to wash over your heart and soul (Eph. 5:26). Let His promises of security and protection release the dam full of frustration, pain, guilt, fear, memory, and stolen innocence within you. As you cry, pray. As you pray, yield. This is purging (Ps. 51:7). Are you tired of carrying the guilt? Are you tired of feeling undeserving of true love - not really knowing how to love yourself? Yield to God's empowering spirit! "That He might present in to himself a glorious (woman), not having spot or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish" (Eph. 5:27). When you find yourself reflecting on the negative past, speak aloud the affirmation that God has made you a little lower than angels and crowned you with glory and honor (Ps. 8:5). Praise God each day for the healing of your spirit and for the renewing of your mind (Rom. 12:1-2). You cannot control the actions of others but with God's love dwelling inside of you, you will endure.
Read: 2 Samuel 13; see also Psalm 51:10-13; Romans 8:28; 2 Corinthians 1:3-4; Galatians 5:19-21; 1 Thessalonians 5:15; Hebrew 12:15.
