Accept the teaching of the world and hopeless you will be. but trust in Gods eternal plan if you want life that's free.

When your life is in darkness pray to God. Ask Him to free you from darkness. After you have prayed and you are still in darkness please pay your electric bills. :p

you must not tell God when he must act or even how. Your responsibility is to pray unceasingly and trusting him to act according to his perfect will.

The world's happiest friends never have the same characters. They just have the best understanding of their differences.

once in a while good people need a reminder of how special and lovable they are. with this message consider yourself reminded.

The poor and needy everywhere are objects of Gods love and care, but they will always know despair unless his love with them we share.

Do not think of the few things you did not get after praying. Think of the countless and beautiful things God gave you without asking.

Lord when I lose hope because my plans have come to nothing help me to remember that your love is always better than my dreams.

No one is more loved and appreciated in this world than a person who lightens the burden of another. This is how God rewards kindness.

A person that has a happy spirit doesn't easily get tired and is always disposed to do good. We've been created for a greater purpose so we should never allow ourselves to fall into things that remove the kindness and love from our hearts.

The bird

Let's travel light, without the baggage of sadness, grudges, pain, fear, and regrets.

 

The turtle

My bearings are not light. God allowed me to carry such luggage, for it is the only way that I am protected. - Anon.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phil 4:13

The testing of your faith produces patience. James 1:3

Enlighten what is dark in me; strengthen, weak; mend, broken; bind, bruised; heal, sick; straighten, crooked; revive whatever peace and love have died in me.

Lord, watch over those whose names You can read in my heart. Guard them with every care and make their way easy and their labor fruitful. Dry their tears if they weep. Sanctify their joys. Raise their courage if they weaken. Restore their hope if they lose heart. Restore their health if they be ill. Truth if they err. Repentance if they fall. In Jesus’ name.

God gives peace to those who are quiet before Him.

God will not permit any troubles to come upon us, unless He has a specific plan by which great blessing can come out of the difficulty.

Most of us desire a perfect situation, a perfect life. Yet You, my Lord, do not grant a perfect life. What You give instead is a perfect heart in the midst of an imperfect life. Teach me to be cheerful, hopeful, smiling amidst imperfections and to enjoy Your wondrous blessings every moment in time.

Never be beggars of love, always be donors of love.

God allows life to be rocky. His challenge is not to let the rocks grind you into dust, but to polish you to a brilliant gem.

Some lessons are best learned through pain. Sometimes our visions become clear only after our eyes are washed with tears. Sometimes we have to be broken, so we can be whole again. If God meant a day to be perfect, He would not have invented tomorrow. Whatever your heart feels, trust God for it.

Find joy in every simple thing and see beauty in every situation when times are difficult. Remember that no pain comes without a purpose.

Don’t give in to worry or anger. It only leads to trouble. Ps 37:8

My grace is sufficient for you. 2 Cor 12:9

Happiness is somewhere between too little and too much. You should have just enough wealth to meet your needs but enough poverty to learn how to work hard to keep you strong. Who you are is God’s gift to you, but who you become is your gift to God.

Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God. Matt 5:8

Wait on the Lord. Be of good courage and he shall strengthen your heart. Ps 27 1-4

Behind every event, God has a purpose. At times what we consider a trial is simply his permission to rearrange our lives to be more meaningful.

There comes a moment each day when we must simply let go of our burdens and hand it over to God. May the Lord bless you with what you pray for. Reward you with what you work for. Grant you with what you hope for. And above all, surprise you with what you have not asked for.

This is life, it can never be absolutely happy, it can never be perfectly made. It will always have its twists and turns, ups and downs. It will make you strong and have faith, sometimes make you cry and suffer but it will make you stand and learn that no matter how difficult it is, there will always be many reasons to smile.

Narrow is the gate and difficult is the way that leads to life. Matt 7 14

Bless the Lord my soul; do not forget all the gifts of God, who pardons all your sins, heals all your ills, delivers your life from the pit, surrounds you with love and compassion. Ps 103 2-4

Nobody has the power to make things perfect but everyone is given countless chances to make things right.

When we are thankful for what we have, we want to share it with others.

Trust in the Lord forever! For the lord is an eternal rock. Is 26 4

The way to become wise is to honor the Lord. He gives sound judgment to all who obey his commands. He is to be praised forever. Ps 111 10

But you have mercy on all, because you can do all things, and you overlook the sins of men that they may repent. Wis 11 23

A life well lived is simply a collection of days well spent and years of accumulated memories. Make each day a journey of love, kindness and gladness for everyone.

Circumstances and situations do color life but you have been given the mind to choose what the color will be.

Doing good to others is not a duty. It is a joy, for it increases your own health and happiness.

The secret of friendship is concern. The secret of love is sacrifice. The secret of happiness giving. The secret of life is God.

No one is strong enough to bear his burdens alone.

With you all things are possible. We can place our problems in your care and that in you we can find rest.

Happiness begins at the point of acceptance. The point when we stop questioning why sometimes things are unfair.

If you have never felt my pain how would you know I’m a healer? If you never felt sadness, how would you know I’m a comforter? Child, if life is perfect, would you still know Me?

The devil is content to let us profess Christianity as long as we do not practice it.

Thank you for what we have. Keep us ever aware of those who have needs we can meet.

But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us not because of the righteous things we have done, but because of his mercy. Titus 3 5

Whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. Mark 11 24

Give and it will be given to you. Lk 6 38

Healing of the mind happens by letting go of bad memories; healing of the heart through forgiveness; and healing of the soul through prayers.

The best helping hand is at the end of your own arm. When you feel you can’t handle things, just we can God will do what we cannot. Our task is to take care of the possible and trust God with the impossible.

Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you. The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me? Heb 3 5-6

Success in life can never be an accident. It is the result of hard work and faith in god. Champions are not the people who never fail, but the people who never quit.

I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content. Phil 4:11

Ask God to keep you from worrying about what others think, and to be content with whatever he sends your way. All the tomorrows of our life have to pass Him before they get to us.

I am weak but my God is strong. I don’t have all but I have Him. Though I’m tired, I know he’ll never tire loving me. And that’s enough inspiration for me to face each day. Cause I’m just someone imperfect but loved by a perfect God.

Life is never measured by the years we live, but by the caring we do, the cheer and love we shared and the happy people whose hearts we’ve touched.

Contentment comes when God’s will is more important than our wants.

Hatred stirs up disputes, but love covers all offenses. Proverbs 10 12

Each morning we face the day without knowing what lies ahead. Nevertheless beyond this uncertainty stands the assurance that God cares for s so much more than we know.

Our sin is great. God’s grace is greater.

God can speak through our acts of kindness.

Whatever circumstances we are in let us not be discouraged. We are anchored to our father a great god. He is in control and will deliver us to great heights.

God never ever gives up on us.

Because god is faithful we need not be afraid.

Our lives are never more secure than when they are abandoned to God.

Thank you for being with us wherever we dwell. Hold close those who grieve and change their pain to joy.

Success often rises out of the ashes of failure.

Faith means taking our eyes off our troubles, our losses, our pain, our difficulties, and redirecting our concentration and focus toward the lord.

Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising every time we fall.

We are to God the fragrance of Christ. 2 Cor 2 15

Two conflicting forces cannot exist in one human heart. When doubt reigns, faith cannot abide. When hatred rules, love is crowded out. Where selfishness rules, there love cannot dwell. When worry is present, trust cannot crowd its way in.

In life we always search for answers because we want to prove ourselves that we made the right decisions. The truth is we can't search for what's not there. Things happen because it's meant to happen. That's why we forgive people even if they hurt us, we love people who don't love us and we smile despite every painful cruash in our hearts. at the end of the day, the lessons we learned are the answers to our questions.

Only in quiet waters can things mirror themselves undistorted. Only with a quiet mind shall we be able to hear God's whisper in our hearts.

Never be afraid to entrust the unknown future to the all-knowing god.

Sunrise marks God's message of peace love and hope whle sunset stands for his grace. May you always have the best in between this two beautiful moments.

We are not supposed to always understand why certain things happen. We dont have to always know the reasons why God allow certain things to take place. all that is asked of us is to trust Him completely and let Him be in control. God will never fail us. not now not ever.

Isn't it strange that your P100 peso bill seem a large amount when you donate it to church but such a small amount when you go shopping? one hour seems so long in church; too short when having fun? everyone wants front-row tickets in concerts or shows but do whatever possible to sit at last row in church? We say God is our priority but do we prove it everyday?

Things in this world are temporary. If events are turning well, enjoy. If they go wrong, don't worry. It wont last long. Reasons: Larger faith means lesser fear. greater trust means smaller doubts. stronger beliefs, weaker worries.

Jesus is the one to run to when our lives bring grief and pain. he provides his strength and guidance with a peace we cant explain.

Though you cannot see the outcome, trust the lord. He knows what's best. Be assured he sees your trial, and he's with you in your test.

No one is rich enough to buy back the past. But if you have the courage to do better things today, you would be the richest one tomorrow. Is 41 10

Enough

God's strength is enough to fight and win our battles. God's riches are enough to supply all our needs. God's wisdom is enough to teach and direct us. God's love is more than enough for all of us.

God's purpose in allowing problems to come into our lives is far more importnat thanour personal convenience. He allows us to suffer through interpersonal conflicts for our own good. Conflicts keep us humble, build patience, and develop our spiritual character.

Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. Confucius

The Lord never fails to give us new blessing every time we wake up. Waking up alive and well is already a miracle.

Better to be kind than be right; forgive, than have a bitter heart; talk less than make comments on every issue and err; hold your tongue than be angry and be disgraced; and hold on to God in His ways than trust in human wisdom.

Faith and prayer are impossible but they make impossible things possible. Its Gods part to do wonders; ours is the simple part, to trust and pray.

Strong people are given much trials and heartaches because it is believed that the can overcome such pain. that they are brave but sometimes we get so tired that we just want to scream and give up. when that certain time comes that you can no longer walk on your own, God helps you carry your pain. For as long as God is here, giving up is never a choice.

Age appears to be the best in some things. Old wood best to burn. Old authors best to read. Old wine best to drink. old friend best to keep.

A blind man had a board saying Help me I'm blind. Only a few gave. But there was this man that always helped. One day when that man passed he took the board and changed it. Now the blind man noticed a lot was giving so when that man passed the blind man asked Excuse me sir what did you put on my board? The man smiled and said It's a beautiful day. Too bad I can't see it. Sometimes we are too blind to see that we are blessed. We have countless tings to thank god for. Hope you see it today.

Help us in trust in you when pain overwhelms us. Teach us to console others in the ways you console us.

When Jesus started his public ministry, the very first thing he said was Repent. And the second was Follow me. We may be having the romantic notion of "finding my destiny" or "making my mark in the world" while "trusting in Jesus" to make my dreams come true and fix the problems of my plan. It's not at all what Jesus says. he says repent, to change. to transform my outlook from being master into follower, to think as he thinks, to act as he acts, to drop my human logic and adopt his divine wisdom. Giving up control is not easy and may take a lifetime to learn. But rest assured. our perfection our fulfilment and joy will be found in the measure that we follow jesus. let us pray for this grace today.

Once in a while good people need a reminder of how special and lovable they are.With this message, consider yourself reminded.

Turn from evil and do good that you may inhabit the land forever. Ps 37 27
