DON’T listen to them!!

Allah, Jehovah our God, Who is the Almighty, Who takes away our fear, sorrows and gives us hope in better times, is the One to Whom we look up and praise for all the wonders we might enjoy around us.

There are lots of people who try to get us away from our faith in God. We should be careful not to fall into their trap. The Scriptures warn of such false teachers, deceivers and tricksters who might lead us astray.

Try to get it!

They say be ready for the disappointment from any one at any time..

And I say ” Be ready for happiness.. Joy.. Money.. Health… Good company.. ”

That’s what I think of God..

What do you think of God???…

Happiness cannot be travelled to

Happiness cannot be travelled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed.
Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.

A Drop Of Rain

Who does not want to sing and dance in the rain, and look forward to the rainbow and the sun letting the dampness disappear?

Anita's Perspectives on Life.

Thunder only happens when it’s raining

Players only love you when they’re playing

Women, they will come and they will go

When the rain washes you clean, you’ll know”

These lines from “Mick Fleetwood “of “Fleetwood Mac “ from his song “Dreams”touched my heart deeply. It was still raining and I kept looking at the sky. Since I was a child I liked the rainy season. It always brings out the child in me. Running around and dancing in the rain comforts me like nothing. When raindrops touch my face they actually touch my heart. The cold winds get my heartbeat faster.

Many beautiful songs, books, movies quotes and poems have had the theme of rain behind them. On one hand, we see rain being used as an image behind the expression of sadness, loss and a broken heart. On the other hand, we can see rain…

Making itself worthy of happiness


“If the entire world sought to make itself worthy of happiness
rather than make itself happy,
then the entire world would be happy.”

Find happiness in what you have

 

Dr. Austin Ejaife inspirit

“Happiness isn’t about getting what you want all the time. It’s about loving what you have and being grateful for what you want.” ~ Zig Ziglar …

People tend to choose to see happiness as something we must chase after and capture, as if it is something to be won or obtained. This view, however, only serves to disenfranchise us of the power to experience the happiness we already possess. True happiness can only be found in sincere gratitude for the things we have and the things we want.

We often feel that we know what is best for us, even though we are shown time and time again that this is simply not true. In my life, this is most evident when I come before God asking for things to be my way. Most of the time, what I ask for is not what I get; though usually what…

Happy New Year. SIGH.

Being chained for some more months we should be happy when we are still not infected by that terrible disease. Though we shall still have to be on the safe side, avoiding contact with too many people.

When staying in our little bubble, what do we want more. Today there are so many technological wonders that can bring people from all over the world to our doorstep.

We have the facility to be in contact with so many people all over the world and can share our thoughts with them. But we now have also much more time to read books and to watch films on our small or big screen.

So, let’s enjoy the life that we are privileged to have!

Coronavirus Diaries

It’s January 2021. We are way into the future and China has unleashed a whole load of hell into the world with Covid-19. We’re all still social distancing like mad, washing our hands, wearing masks, going nowhere, doing nothing, getting fat and lonely. No holidays, no hugs with friends, no eating in restaurants or going out dancing. We’re not even popping out for a cup of tea in a café. It’s a shitty life and I don’t see how it can change any time soon what with the new, ultra-transmissible mutation of the virus in rampant circulation.

But there is hope. Vaccines are being given. Snowdrop shoots are peeping out of the muddy grass, and I’ve bought a new armchair and sofa bed on a 0% finance deal from DFS. You’ve got to take happiness where you can get it. Plus:-

  • The children are healthy
  • I am healthy
  • We have…

Make happiness a habit


”“Few things are more revolutionary than finding true happiness in a suffering world.”

~ Marianne Williamson.

“If you want to be happy, you have to be happy on purpose.
When you wake up, you can’t just wait to see what kind of day you’ll have.
You have to decide what kind of day you’ll have.””

Believe me! Everything is Possible

Once on our way in life we are confronted with lots of things, of which some seem difficult to tackle or which are disturbing us.

All of us search for the better life and have their goal put on marvellous things we dream of. Many people think a good life and happiness lies in gathering wealth, but they are mistaken.
Many think they have to look for luck by others around them and think the world can offer them peace within. They do hope to achieve great success, and some even can do so but in the end do not feel very happy. Several who seem to have reached the top within themself do not feel really satisfied or fulfilled despite becoming a multi-millionaire or a star. Oh, so many go looking for luck and happiness too far away out.

Too many people do forget that answers should be found within themself, becoming self-aware and having the right spiritual goal.

It might not always easy to accept we failed in something. But we should come to understand we better learn from any failure and go on avoiding it in the future by not falling in the same trap or by not choosing the wrong direction.

Lots of people do not want to know they are created in the image of their Maker. The majority of the world population even does not want to accept such Eternal Spirit Being would exist. But if they would learn more about Him and read His Words, they would be able to find the most valuable Guide for life (in His given Word: the Bible). That century assembly of books gives enough wisdom to mankind to find the best way to live and shows the path to true happiness.

*

To remember

  • Failure =/= failure < > brings a lot of experience + maturity in our brain and mind set = > a way towards success.
  • willpower matters a lot
  • believe in yourself + never give up > you “can do it”.
  • Think Positive
  • Trust in Hard Work
  • Set your goal > set a milestone for yourself.  Every target and milestone has some requirements = think, find the story, model them, and then try to better them
  • empower your will power with greatness you have achieved in your life.

Death and rest

Lots of people may fear death and be very unrestful when they think about the dead.

Many long for moments without pain and moment where they can be at ease not having to worry about so many things. They are longing for peace and tranquillity. Many also want some time to recuperate and to get some new enforced energy.

Rest is something that most people desire, but are unable to find. Running from morning until night, seven days a week, people struggle to find rest. {Psalm 62:1 Finding Rest}

There are those who are unable to sleep the following night after they dared to take a nap in the middle of the day. Others do not mind falling asleep in their church whilst the priest gives his sermon. Others find it great to have the Sunday free so that they can have a nap on Sunday afternoons.

Every day we are confronted by the world which demands so many things from us; Having the pressure of society on us we often do not dare to have a rest somewhere in-between.

Rest becomes elusive because of the race that people are in to try and satisfy their soul. They fear rejection, poverty, looking bad, and missing out so they run harder to prevent those things from occurring. When they lie down at night, their minds race in fear for the next day trying to determine how to make something happen or to keep moving forward, thus not getting any rest. {Psalm 62:1 Finding Rest}

Lots of people do think when they do not follow the tred of this fast running world, they shall not be respected or recognized for what they do. They would love to please everybody around them, and by doing so sometimes forget what is really right or appropriate in the eyes of God.

The goals of people are for temporary happiness and enjoyment, but often these are missing in the race. People miss out on life striving to run hard after false things, false hopes and false dreams. {Psalm 62:1 Finding Rest}

Most people do think it are the living beings that can provide them with what they need. They do forget that it is the Most High Divine Creator Who is the Sustainer and Provider of all. They forget that salvation they seek can only be found by God.

Every believer needs to realize that it is God who is the true provider for every need he has. Provision for physical, spiritual and emotional needs. There is nothing that God cannot supply. {Psalm 62:1 Finding Rest}

We should not so much honour the dead when we have the Living God to Whom all honour belongs. In Him, we should trust and not in those who are already death. It is God Who deserves our confidence.

Instead of looking to the temporary things that this world can provide, one must look to God for the eternal things. The things that last are forgiveness, love, peace, joy, kindness, mercy, patience, and God’s presence. When a believer has God at the center of his life, he will know the rest that God provides. This will allow him to lie down at night in peace and sleep knowing God is in control and will save him in the end. {Psalm 62:1 Finding Rest}

Instead of partaking all those festivities for the dead, we should choose for God given feasts and choose for more life than  the life most people see in front of them. Our hopes should not come from those in the graves but from That One Who man can not see. We may be sure of it that He provides the most stable ground under our feet. He is The Rock that shall not be broken in pieces or being destroyed. We can wait calmly for God alone, because our hope and expectations comes from Him. He alone is should be our rock our defence and stronghold.

Trusting in God we shall not be shaken. Him being our high tower we who believe in Him and trust Him shall not be moved.

Are you hoping that those people, called saints, who died a long time ago shall bring peace and salvation for you?

Please do know that our salvation and glory depends on God and not on the dead.

Trust him at all times, you people. Pour out your hearts in his presence.
God is our refuge {Psalm 62:5-8}

 

*

My soul waits calmly for God alone.
    My salvation comes from him.
{Psalm 62:1 GW)
