God's word is your assurance

"My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," says the Lord. "For as the heavens are higher than the Earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts." - Isaiah 55:8-9

The statement "a penny for your thoughts", was put to a young man seated on a park bench by a woman who had been jogging and was resting for a while. Suddenly the young man flashed a smile and said "Thank you, thank you". He began to tell the story of how he came to be sitting in the park. He was planning to spend his last day on Earth and was at a dark stage in his life.
As a youngster his mother brought him to this park, but she died and life was rough for him as he went from foster home to foster home. For him, life dealt him a heavy blow and he was not prepared to go any further. People didn't care. There was no love shown. Jobs were hard to find and money was scarce. Nobody really thought that much of him to even ask him a question, so where did this lady with a kind voice who sat next to him come from?
The statement "a penny for your thoughts" caused him to emerge from his thoughts of gloom and death into hope and gladness. He had met the wife he had long prayed for and was at the beginning of a brand new life chart.
Some people find the very concept of divine revelation difficult. They cannot come to accept that God discloses himself to mankind in so many strange and mysterious ways; but without divine revelation, we as human beings are like a boat drifting without a rudder in turbulent waters.
The vastness of the difference between the mind of God and the mind of man is indescribable; for mankind to strike a balance, he must acknowledge that almighty God is his creator and the creator of all that is on the Earth, in the Earth, above the Earth and beneath the Earth.
"My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," says the almighty.
How many times in our lives do we think thoughts and do deeds that are contrary to the will of God. We smile, laugh and fraternize, but it is only from our lips and not from our hearts. We say things that people would like to hear but completely ignore and scorn their wishes and requests.
Consider God's thoughts. Can we discover his thoughts or read his mind? We can't even read each other's thoughts. Certainly someone saw James Holmes, the young man responsible for the Colorado massacre that night at the theater.
What if they were able to read his mind as he entered, or knew his thoughts as he purchased weapons? Going through high-powered body scanners at airports and elsewhere cannot bring on screen the thoughts of those who would pass through.
The global situation of tragedy by reason of mass killings, bombings, shelling, give true reason why we should cry out to God more for the cleansing and healing of cruel and wicked thoughts of those who have no remorse, shame or guilt. It moves them not one iota to see innocent children and defenseless women and men dead and soaked in their own blood.
How we pray that more than ever, God will reveal himself to us and speak to our hearts, so our souls could hear. Speak to our hearts, father. calm every doubt and fear. Help us to know that the enemy has not gotten the better part of us. You make plans for your children beyond their wildest imagination. Your mercies are new every day and so are your blessings.
We confess that your thoughts are not our thoughts, neither are our ways your ways. We acknowledge that as the heavens are higher than the Earth, so are your ways higher than our ways and your thoughts than our thoughts. For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and return not thither but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall your word be that goes forth from your mouth, it shall not return to you empty.
Thank you father God for the blessed assurance of your word.

Consumer protection in The Bahamas

Dear Editor,

I have read Philip Galanis' article in the April 15 edition of The Nassau Guardian on the subject "Consumer Protection in The Bahamas" and felt obligated to respond. It would appear we have a shared interest, namely, greater protection for the Bahamian consumer.
As you may be aware, I have been involved in the field of consumer protection for many years, having published Consumerism Today magazine for 10 of those years.
The motto of the magazine incidentally was "developing a more educated, better-informed consumer".
I know and appreciate what needs to be done to address the legitimate concerns that Galanis addressed. For starters, the Consumer Protection Commission, provided for by the 2006 Consumer Protection Act, has never been established.
The Bahamas is being used as a dumping ground for inferior products, including food, fuel and wrecked vehicles, principally because we have never had a Bureau of Standards.
I still feel strongly about these and other issues of redress on behalf of Bahamian consumers; one that comes readily to mind is the need for an amendment to the Legal Professions Act so as to empower the Bahamas Bar Association to be able to issue annual practicing certificates to members of the Bahamian bar in good standing. This would help in mitigating against the unscrupulous preying on the unsuspecting.
Vehicle theft is another area of grave concern and after having my vehicle stolen and meeting with the Central Detective Unit (CDU) and speaking with local insurers, the practice of reinsuring stolen vehicles leaves much to be desired.
In this regard, the vehicle titling system is an excellent idea but should be coupled with the creation of a secure database and mandated collaboration between local insurers, the vehicle theft section of CDU and the Road Traffic Department.
I have also observed a marked deterioration in respect for the Price Control Regulations of The Bahamas - particularly by our major food stores.
It has become common practice, when an item appears with two prices affixed, to be forced by management to pay the higher price - this despite the fact that the law mandates that the lower price be paid by the consumer.
Computerized bar code scanners are also being used to take advantage of struggling Bahamians.
If a price is affixed to an item but it scans for a higher price, management of these stores is insisting that the scanned price is the correct price and not the price tag affixed. This also is against the law.
It would appear then that a consumer information and education program based on our applicable laws is not only needed for our consumers, but also for management of major food stores who appear more interested in abiding by the policies of their respective establishments than by the laws of The Bahamas.
The problems with land in this country are legend and they are not only negatively impacting ordinary Bahamians without the means to take their matters before the Privy Council.
They are also tarnishing the international reputation of our country. But this too is a consumer protection issue.
I am therefore of the considered view that a Ministry of Consumer Affairs would go a long way in not only highlighting these many deficiencies, but more importantly in leading the inter-disciplinary and ministerial charge that is now required so as to avoid these issues being continually kicked down the road and never being comprehensively addressed.

Thank God for the blessed assurance of his Word

My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:8-9)
As you pick up this newspaper and begin to read this column, I know that many people are thinking many things -- whether success will ever come your way; at which point your life will be freed from the lies told on you, and when the truth will be told; why your children are neglecting you after all the sacrifices you made for them to succeed; whether you're suffering because of a generational curse; and whether you will escape your family history of illness.
The truth is there is none void of some thought, good or bad, complex or perplex.
Most of the crime committed in our land today is as a result of bad and evil thoughts manufactured in the hearts of those who choose not to allow the thoughts of good, faith and values to be purveyors of moral and spiritual wellness.
The question "a penny for your thoughts" was put to a young man seated on a park bench by a woman who had been jogging and was resting for a while. All of a sudden the young man flashed a smile and twice said "thank you, thank you," and with that began to tell the story of how he came to be sitting in the park. He was planning to spend his last day on earth and at dark, take his life.
As a youngster his mother brought him to the park, but she died and life was very rough for him as he went from foster care to foster care. For him, life dealt him a heavy blow and he was not prepared to go any further. People didn't care, there was no love shown, jobs were hard to find and money was scarce. Nobody really thought that much of him to even ask of him a question, so where did this lady with a kind voice come from and then to sit next to him?
The question "a penny for your thoughts" caused him to burst out of the darkness of gloom and death into blue sunny skies of hope and gladness. Did he know that this was the wife he had long prayed for and the beginning of a brand new life-chart? I don't think so.
Some people find the very concept of divine revelation difficult. They cannot come to accept that God discloses himself to mankind in so many strange and mysterious ways, but without divine revelation we as human beings are like a boat drifting without a rudder in turbulent waters.
The vastness of the difference between the mind of God and the mind of man is indescribable, and for mankind to strike a balance, he must acknowledge that Almighty God is his creator and the creator of all that is on the earth, in the earth, above the earth and beneath the earth.

Certainly someone saw the young man responsible for the Colorado massacre that night at the theater. What if they were able to read his mind as he entered, or know his thoughts as he purchased weapons from various stores? What if they had known the thoughts of the contractor who dismembered his significant other? Passing through body scanners at airports and elsewhere cannot bring on screen the thoughts of those who would pass through.
The global situation of tragedy by reason of mass killings and bombings give true reason why we should cry out to God more for the cleansing and healing of cruel and wicked thoughts of those who have no remorse, shame or guilt. It moves them not one iota to see innocent children and defenseless women and men lay dead and soaked in their blood.
How we pray that more than ever, God will reveal himself to us and speak to our hearts so our souls would hear...speak to our hearts Father, calm every doubt and fear. Help us to know that the enemy has not gotten the better part of us. You make plans for your children beyond their wildest imagination. Your mercies are new every day and so are your blessings.

Consumer protection in The Bahamas
