Focusing on being a blessing


When you focus
on being a blessing,
God makes sure
that you are always blessed in abundance.

If you keep your faith and trust in God


I believe
if you keep your faith,
you keep your trust,
you keep the right attitude,
if you’re grateful,
you’ll see God open up new doors.

That what we do and those we meet


I truly believe
that everything that we do
and everyone that we meet
is put in our path for a purpose.
There are no accidents;
we’re all teachers
– if we’re willing to pay attention
to the lessons we learn,
trust our positive instincts
and not be afraid to take risks
or wait for some miracle
to come knocking at our door.
Marla Gibbs

What is a Christian?

Lots of people do call themselves Christian but are not really real followers of Christ (what they should be when they call themselves Christian).

Being Christian should entail that the person is a follower of the Christ (Kristos) and would follow his teachings and worship the same God as him. Though in the Christian world we do find the majority worshipping another god than the God of Christ. Christ Jesus, born by the Power of God, was brought up in a very devout family who kept to the Torah and worshipped the Only One True God, the God of Israel, Who is also the God of Abraham.

A true Christian should also keep to that Unseen God and like Jesus should obey His Wishes and Commandments. As a follower of Christ a Christian should make sure to live according the rule of the God of Christ and according the teachings of Jesus Christ. Though in many denominations we see lots of so called believers who not take notion of all those things Jesus and God require from believers in God and from lovers of God. Many keep to the false teaching of the trinity (a three-headed god) and even do not mind having graven images of those gods (a blasphemy and an abomination in the eyes of God)
Lots of those calling themselves Christian also do not share the love of Christ and often are racist and not showing their love for others. Many also do not mind taking up weapons or to show aggressiveness towards others.

A real Christian is some one who really tries to live according the teachings of God and His only begotten beloved son Jesus, and like him shows respect and love to every creation of God (plants, animals and people).

If somebody puts you down or criticizes you


Work hard
for what you want
because it won’t come to you without a fight.
You have to be strong and courageous
and know that you can do anything you put your mind to.
If somebody puts you down or criticizes you,
just keep on believing in yourself
and turn it into something positive.
Leah LaBelle

Don’t Be Discouraged

We must know that living in a godless world many burdens and suffering may be part of every person being part of this word-system. Though every one who has found God and has come to believe in His sent one, shall find consolation that we shall come closer to a time when the Most High shall bring a turn-over.

Though people of the earth have ruined it, because they do not follow God’s teachings or do not obey God’s laws. Those who kept to the agreement with God that was to last forever, shall soon hear songs from every part of the earth, praising God, the Righteous One. The Almighty God has always done what He said He would do and has done what He planned long ago, and as such we may trust Him Who not only renews us but shall renew the whole earth, stopping the violent attacks on us, as a cloud cools a hot day, Jehovah shall silence the songs of those who have no mercy.

In Him we may have hope and shall come to see that He will wipe away every tear from every face. He will take away the shame of His people from the earth. (Isaiah 24-25)

2 Corinthians 4 16

Verse of the Day:  2 Corinthians 4:16

Therefore, we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.

Life is sometimes hard and the world can be a mean and lonely place not to mention the pressure we put on ourselves to be perfect.  Don’t be discouraged, don’t give up, this world and everything in it is only temporary.  Turn to God and let your spirit be renewed by his love and grace.
