The Family with Good Skin

Years ago, I used to have really bad acne. I went to a dermatologist and they gave me some really strong medicine that got rid of it. I was glad that the curse of acne was finally gone, but I had a problem that was left over. The acne had left a lot of scarring on my face. My sister told me that I could probably cover some of the scars up with makeup, but since I’m a guy, I don’t wear makeup. I decided to get a more permanent solution from aesthetic doctors in Singapore. There was no point in covering up the scars if I could just get rid of them completely.

I found a clinic that had a treatment for my scars and their doctors told me that with regular visits, the scars would gradually go away. As each treatment as used on my face, the scars had less of an appearance and my face looked more normal. My mother was surprised to see how well the treatment worked on my face and wanted to have some treatment done for herself. She had some scars from acne that she used to have as a teenager, and had some blackheads that she wanted to remove.

Now everyone in my family goes to the clinic to get treatments whenever they have a skin problem, including my father. He got rid of some acne by going to the clinic, and he also had another treatment done for fat. He saw that they had a new cool sculpting treatment that could be used to remove fat in particular spots and had it done on his stomach. Now he takes every opportunity to show off his stomach, as if he’s some kind of body builder who had just come from the gym.

Extraordinary Leadership Is So Greatly Needed in Every Area of Government, Business and Commerce!

Good sound solid leadership demands qualities and characteristics that appear to be rather scarce.If a man makes himself right with God through Jesus Christ and studies the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew Chapter 5 in the New Testament, he will find there attributes which will enhance his business skills and abilities as a leader, no matter what his leadership position might be.When Jesus Christ spoke about being poor in spirit, the people listening to Him would know something of what he was meaning.They would be familiar with the Psalms and in the Psalms we read of the poor crying out to Almighty God and looking to God for help as people were aware of how really poor they were, and by that I do not mean financially poor.When people are enslaved by difficulties and sense that are emotionally empty and spiritually powerless, what are they going to do and where are they going to turn?Jesus spoke about that man who had such potential but took the money and ran away, only to find that his pride, and his money and his so-called self-sufficiency soon evaporated.

One day there were two men in the Temple, and one prayed, “Be merciful to me, a sinner”. He was a beggar before Almighty God, and that is what it means to be poor in spirit, and when you realise that reality you can quite suddenly become rich and enriched blessed.How many leaders would acknowledge that in various areas of life they are poor and poorly and inadequately equipped?Pictures would form in these people’s minds as Jesus spoke and we need to remember he was teaching and training and preparing men for leadership!Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Does this not include those who mourn over sin? The very thought of hurting and offending Almighty God should make us pause and stop and think!Will I never free from this behaviour that grieves Him? You will be fortified, or fortressed.Here are characteristics and qualities that would enhance leadership no matter where the leader was leading. It could be business or government or in education. It could be anywhere!These men who were listening and learning on this occasion learned the lessons and soon they were to transform the lives of many as positive leadership, laced with integrity grace and love, was unleashed upon a needy world. That world is still needy and so needs this calibre of leadership.The next quality might be even more challenging!Blessed are the meek. This is not weakness. This is being submissive to God and humbly obedient to God. Meekness is not weakness. This requires real strength of character. They will inherit the earth. They will grasp at nothing and inherit the earth. They will clutch at nothing and get everything.Moses was the meekest man in all the earth. Moses bowed before God, who was sustaining him and keeping him, and he led two and a half million people for some forty years.

Now, that is leadership extraordinary!But consider Jesus Christ as your model for meek but powerful leadership. Think of Him riding into Jerusalem on a donkey and controlling that beast which had never been broken in. Jesus can control all kinds of things, like temper and rage and furious anger! Jesus was fulfilling prophecy. He was no weakling. He was soon to take a whip and cleanse the Temple of its commercial sin, and then argue with the legalistic Pharisee, confuting their superficial wisdom.This was the leader who called the weary and the burdened to come unto Him for rest and peace. Yes, that is extraordinary leadership.How many of those you lead need rest and peace and comfort and understanding and care and compassion?Can you lead with these characteristics and qualities?

Vitamin Deficiency And Acne

In today’s fast food society, it is no wonder that diet is such an extreme issue. It is almost impossible for anybody to maintain a healthy diet now-a-days. Health organizations estimate that only 10-20% even consume the recommended amounts of the most important vitamins and minerals on a daily basis. This is a startling low number and simply results from the fact that a healthy diet is very hard to maintain.

In order to be able to maintain a healthy body and in order to be able to have clear, healthy, acne free skin, it is important to consume the recommended amount of many crucial vitamins and minerals on a daily basis. However, diet alone often falls short of this. Fast foods don’t contain many vitamins and minerals in the first place, people usually don’t have time to try and prepare full, healthy, rounded meals, and even the foods purchased in stores now have many of their vitamins and minerals taken out of them in order to help them stay fresh longer.

For these reasons, it is often necessary to look elsewhere in order to get the right amounts of vitamins and minerals each day. Foods and diet will almost always still lead to some short of deficiency, no matter how careful one tries to be, and therefore it become necessary often times to look to supplements in order to fill the gap. Supplements can be extremely helpful in ensuring the body receives the vitamins and minerals it needs to be healthy.

Supplements are not a bad thing and are not some sort of “short cut.” Many people think they are cheating themselves by taking a vitamin supplement but this simply isn’t so. Most one-a-day vitamin supplements are extremely useful for the simple fact that they will help to provide the body with the essential vitamins and minerals it needs. People also worry about then consuming too much of certain vitamins and minerals due to the combination of the supplement and eating. Again, this is almost never a problem since the supplements only provide the minimum recommended amounts each day, meaning that there is plenty of ceiling room left above that.

When foods and dieting simply aren’t cutting it, it is good to look for a vitamin supplement. Your body needs the vitamins and minerals and to deprive it of them would be extremely unhealthy.
