I see myself in the Word - music ans lyrics

I love this song, it so accurately explains James 1v 25 onward, and in such a simplistic way that reaches every one as it captures how we all feel as we wrestle with our flesh to conform more to the image of Christ and be doers of the word and work not just hearets only, deceiving ourselves.

He who made you is able to complete all that concerns you – our journey with dyslexia part 3 – Alignment, Dial setting and Co-ordination

Image
I will start by saying when I read through all the information and instructions for alignment, dial setting and co-ordination, by the time I was finished and started on the symbol mastery part, I had forgotten a few key elements, for instance the amount of time that should be spent on this. Even though I highlighted the part that speaks about thirty hours of intense work, I clean forgot about it by the time I had my head wrapped around the various exercises J Thus said we went about it as follows for two months; I’d let Samuel sit on a chair across from me and do a relaxing exercise with him first. I’d tell him to sit in a comfortable position with both his hands and feet relaxed. Then I guided him step by step to relax his entire body. We started with the forehead, I’d tell him in the same tone of voice and speaking method as discussed in part 2, to relax his forehead, relax his eye brows, relax his eye lids, relax his eyeballs, relax his nose and so on all the way to his toes. At the …

He who made you is able to complete all that concerns you – our journey with dyslexia part 2 The assesment

In the previous blog I shared getting to “The Gift of Dyslexia” by Ronald D Davis. As a number of moms have asked me to help by sharing how we are doing it, - as we did not go to a Davis Dyslexia Facility for an assessment, but did it at home and we are also currently doing the reading or learning to read and write at home – as they also have to go it alone at home, I now will commence to document our journey as we progress here and Lord willing eventually compile it in a book. So here goes J
As I am the one who needs to learn a new thing or task, and especially anything that looks technical, by watching someone else do it, I just could not wrap my head around the assessment process in chapter 26. I would read about two pages and start all over again. I found the one column explaining what to do and the second column explaining what to perceive and look out for, just a little confusing for me. So I prayed and asked the Lord for help, and He answered by sending me Teresa Muller through …

He who made you is able to complete all that concerns you – our journey with dyslexia part 1 - Discovering help

I woke up with these words this afternoon after a short nap (Tuesday 24 march 2014). It is the voice of the Holy Spirit confirming what I had been meditating on in His Word regarding wisdom in the book of Proverbs. As those of you who either know me personally or have been following my writings may already know, one of my four children has the gift of dyslexia. I now call it a gift since I have learnt so much about it over the past three years that I am thoroughly convinced it is a gift and not a problem, curse, condition, ailments, disability or learning problem. What really started me searching for the truth regarding this is my sons’ very own words one day as we drove to school having completed yet another remedial lesson on 14 January 2013 – he had already been going for two years and this was the beginning of his third year and he was fed up especially since there was no more progress than when we started and he was still not reading -  “Mom I don’t see myself as someone who a di…
