Mighty to Save

I LOVE this song!

This is from Hillsong – it is definitely one of my favorite songs ♥

The way I feel it, this song gives a sense of hope as well as elaborating the greatness of God.

To tell you the truth, I LOVE all words in the lyric. But if I had to choose, the refrain is my fav:

“Saviour
He can move the mountains
For my God is mighty to save
He is mighty to save
Forever
Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave”

So here’s the complete lyric:

Mighty to Save – Hillsong

Everyone needs compassion
Love that’s never failing
Let mercy fall on me
Everyone needs forgiveness
The kindness of a Saviour
The hope of nations

Saviour
He can move the mountains
For my God is mighty to save
He is mighty to save
Forever
Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave

So take me as You find me
All my fears and failures
Fill my life again
I give my life to follow
Everything I believe in
Now I surrender

Shine Your light and
Let the whole world see
We’re singing
For the glory of the risen King
Jesus

Potato on Your Skin!

Yes, it’s potato on your skin! Do that if you want:

  • a lighter skin tone
  • a clearer complexion (reduces blemishes and other marks)
  • to remove unwanted tan
  • to lighten dark circles under eyes

Why potato?

Potato contained one of the highest bleaching agent; so actually, potato naturally bleached your skin (when you apply it externally; I’m not sure if consuming potato would have the same bleaching effect — but, to be honest, I doubt that it would)

A very dark skin tone CANNOT be bleached to a totally fair skin tone; however, there will be a noticeable change.


[FYI, there are many other natural goodness out there that contain bleaching properties. But, I only put “products” that I have tried myself and have seen the effects/results on my blog — and that is POTATO! ^^]


How to naturally bleach your skin with potato?

It’s actually pretty simple!

  1. Soak raw potato slices in cold water for 10 minutes. Rub these slices over face, neck and hands;
  2. Extract potato juice and make a paste out of it;
  3. Grate your potatoes and use it as face mask;

OR…

if you are too lazy to do all those things…

There you go!

Just slice the potatoes and put it on your face right away! (remember to WASH it)

That’s what I do :-P

I always do this in the morning, so I’m too lazy to do all those preparations.

[But, to tell you the truth, those other three ways listed above would actually give BETTER results – I haven’t tried any, but I’m pretty sure it would, because it is a more proper way.]

Let it stay for long; but no longer that 2 hours.

(some people use it overnight, but I haven’t tried it)

Then, remember to wash your face as well just like after you used other face masks.

Easy, don’t you think? :)

Some precaution and notes:

I do NOT guarantee that this will suit ALL skin types

so it will be safer if you don’t put it on your face for too long if it is your first time.

The potato juice will slightly hurt your eyes if it gets inside, so it will be better to put a potato with not-too-much juices for the area around your eyes.

If you want to see BETTER results, follow this with a healthy diet

 

 

 

That’s it then! And have fun with it!

 

I personally see noticeable results in less that a week. (four or five days, if I’m not mistaken. But one thing for sure is that it is less than a week.)

I hope this GREAT natural skin bleach will work its magic on your skin as well!

P.S. This is just a BRIEF information about skin bleaching with potato; NOT an in-depth and detailed information. For further information, feel free to ask.

“…it sure makes a lost boy feel safe.”

Hey guys, I just got this today

and personally I found this to be very heartwarming.

The title of the post is a little section I took from this story.

It’s worth reading, so READ it :)

Hope you like it as much as I do ^^

 


John 3:16

A little boy was selling newspapers on the corner,

the people were in and out of the cold.


The little boy was so cold that he wasn’t trying to sell  many papers.


He walked up to a policeman and said,

“Mister, you wouldn’t happen to know where a poor boy

could find a warm place to sleep tonight would you?


You see, I sleep in a box up around the corner there and

down the alley and it’s awful cold in there for tonight.


Sure would be nice to have a warm place to stay.”


The policeman looked down at the little boy and said, “You

go down the street to that big white house and you knock

on the door. When they come out the door you just say

John 3:16, and they will let you in.”


So he did. He walked up the steps and knocked on the

door, and a lady answered. He looked up and said,

“John 3:16.” The lady said, “Come on in, Son.”


She took him in and she sat him down in a split bottom

rocker in front of a great big old fireplace, and she went

off. The boy sat there for a while and thought to himself:

John  3:16  .   I don’t understand   it, but it sure makes a

cold boy warm.


Later she came back and asked him “Are you hungry ? “

He said, “Well, just a little.. I haven’t eaten in a couple of

days, and I guess I could stand a little bit of food,”


The lady took him in the kitchen and sat him down to a table

full of wonderful food. He ate and ate until he couldn’t eat

any more.. Then he thought to himself:

John !  3:16  .Boy, I sure don’t understand it but it sure

makes a hungry boy full.


She took him upstairs to a bathroom to a huge bathtub

filled with warm water, and he sat there and soaked for a

while. As he soaked, he thought to himself: John 3:16

I sure don’t understand it, but it sure makes a dirty boy

clean. You know, I’ve not had a bath, a real bath, in my

whole life. The only bath I ever had was when I stood in

front of that big old fire hydrant as they flushed it out.

The lady came in and got him.. She took him to a room,

tucked him into a big old feather bed , pulled the covers

up around his neck, kissed him goodnight and turned out

the lights. As he lay in the darkness and looked out the

window at the snow coming down on that cold night,

he thought to himself: John  3:16 …I don’t understand it but

it sure makes a tired boy rested.


The next morning the lady came back up and took him

down again to that same big table full of food. After he

ate, she took him back to that same big old split bottom

rocker in front of the fireplace and picked up

a big old Bible.


She sat down in front of him and looked into his young face.

“Do you understand John    3:16  ?” she asked gently. He

replied, “No, Ma’am, I don’t.. The first time I ever heard it

was last night when the policeman told me to use it,”

She opened Th e Bible to John  3:16  and began to explain

to him about Jesus. Right there, in front of that big old fireplace,

he gave his heart and life to Jesus. He sat there

and thought: John  3:16  — don’t understand it, but it sure

makes a lost boy feel safe.


You know, I have to confess   I don’t understand   it either,

how God was willing to send His Son to die for me, and how

Jesus would agree to do such a thing.   I don’t understand

the agony of the Father and every angel in heaven as

they watched Jesus suffer and die.   I don’t understand   the intense

love for ME that kept Jesus on the cross till the end.

I don’t understand   it, but it sure does make life worth living..


John  3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only

begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should

not perish, but have everlasting life.
