“A negative mind sees the difficulties in every opportunity.
A positive mind sees the chances in every difficulty. ”Luang Phi Ruben Visalo
Dutch version / Nederlandse versie > In elke moeilijkheid kansen zien
Dutch version / Nederlandse versie > In elke moeilijkheid kansen zien
When looking at yourself, start seeing the real “I am“.
Too often, too many people do want to take on an other “me” in front of others. They want to create an other “I am” than the one which is in them. This shall make it so much more difficult for themselves to become satisfied with themselves, because at the end they will not be able to recognise the “I am” of themselves any more. They will not feel at ease with their self. Then negativity enters the body and soul (= the being).
Facebook and other social media tempt people to present themselves differently than they are. Many created a “would like” world. Many also use it to profile them better than they really are. But because they themselves do know the truth and do know it is not really like it is, do become more dissatisfied because they will find themselves further and further away form the world they imagine they should live in.
So many people like to put on a fake act, but they forget they are not only misleading the others, but also themselves. Do not have any illusions, this will affect the way we really are.
Many have already lost themselves in the would be world of the social media. Do not fall in the trap. Be yourself and stay yourself. Come to see your own “I am”, accept and respect it and try to use it positively. there is no reason at all to pretend you are somebody else, or you are feeling differently. Share your real feelings, but let the negative feelings not come over the positive ones.
You can’t attract the right people into your life when you’re pretending to be someone else. So, be yourself. If you can’t find a group whose values and consciousness matches your own, then be the source of one. Others with your same values and consciousness will be drawn to you. Trust me, there are others with your values and consciousness out there. It may take some time to find them, for they too may need to stop pretending.
When a person has found him or herself and can say “I am” than he or she can start the next step, looking for what the “I am” would like to be, would like to become. When there are the dreams than the “I am” should come to realise that those dreams only can be made working when the “I am” is prepared to go into them and to do something positive with them. Then after the knowledge of “I am” has to come the power of the will to say “I can”.

- Believe In Yourself (timemanagementhelpfulhints.wordpress.com)
Believe in yourself no matter what other people think. We should all decide that we can do, be and have whatever we want in this world and the only person who can get you there is You!
- Believe In Yourself (timetocreateabetterlife.wordpress.com)
Have realistic expectations of what you can achieve and then aim a little higher. We can always achieve more than we think we can.
Listen to feedback, and remember, some people will try to tear you down while others will provide golden tips to support you on your journey.
- Do you have faith? (sherwinsampson.wordpress.com)
Faith is you setting dreams and goals for yourself, hoping and believing in it with all that you are. Taking action and doing whatever must be done, as if those dreams actually exist. Set your goals high enough to scare you, that way when you achieve them-you by default have raised the bar in your life. And when all of life goes rye, you have trust because your faith is in God.
- Fight for what is good (dailytwocents.com)
Fight for what is good, by loving the weak and incurable in society. The problems of the world shall be solved when we love each other, see the next person as a friend, work hard to make those around us happy.
Fight for what is good, by holding high all the great virtues of life. Love, patience, kindness and the rest. For there are no laws against these.
- Start working on your dreams now! (newera.com.na)
As a young person going through life with struggles but you still have faith and hope that one day something will change, you don’t give up on anything that you started no matter how hard things may turn out to be. I consider you as a worrier, a gladiator who is fighting an economical war, a gladiator who believes in him/herself. Your heart is the most important tool you have. It is not your experience, knowledge, or skills. It is your heart that matters most of all. Don’t allow just everyone to have access to it. It’s your heart that creates an idea and you live on it. Guard your heart with all your might because everything you create comes from it. “What’s your purpose?” Ask yourself this question. Answering it will change your life instantly. It’s hard to know where you’re going unless you know who you are. To create your life roadmap, first identify and prioritise your values. Doing so will give clarity on what you need in life as opposed to what you simply want. Believe in yourself and give up on things that you know you cannot control and put your focus on what you know you can be able to control. If we cannot risk achieving our dreams, than we go back to our ordinary lives.

Inspiration is the icing on a cake. It is all it takes to give an idea, a thought, a wish or a dream that added element to make it a reality and to see that creation of yours develop into something wonderful. How many times has a thought crossed your mind and a feeling of excitement along with it?
If you take your dream, your thought, that moment in time, then add inspiration and focus to it, can you imagine what may lie ahead? The opportunities are out there and the possibilities are endless. Think big, be creative. Don’t ever think your idea is not good enough! With proper guidelines and development, the sky is the limit.
What gets in the way of those moments of creativity from blossoming into something wonderful, are the feelings of self-doubt and negativity. Everyone on this earth is a unique individual, endowed with many…

We should know that it has no use to let negativity overshadow our life. Though we do have to grow up with falling and standing up again, we always better try to stand up each time and to go on with the experience we got, using it not to weaken us but to sharpen us and to strengthen us in our life.
Every time we are confronted with something negative, we should take a deep breath and try to remember the better happenings, the events we enjoyed, the people who could give us some warmth and the friendships which are dear to us.
The best reliance is the the deeper inner self, the trust in what is perhaps hidden deep in ourselves. Never shall alcohol, overeating, or drugs be of any real help. Sometimes it may look it can give some solace, but it shall not really bring alleviation.
All being created in the image of God we should know we do have Somebody to count on. Wherever we are in whatever situation we might be, we should not feel lonely or on our own. If we really want to allow the Supreme Divine Creator enter in our life, He shall be willing to take our stretched out hand and to help us over the ridge, the dessert or the dangerous river.
In Him we can find our Helper, our Sword, our Light and The One Who brings us further in this life.
In and with Him, the God of gods, we shall be able to feel the love and to give love to others so that they shall come closer to us wanting to share the same feelings of unity and close friendship in this universe which has so much to offer.
Always keep looking for the positive and believe in yourself, because you are here created and placed on this earth with reason. You will not always see it directly what your purpose in life will be, but when you continue your way you shall find out and find it worthwhile living.
Open yourself to see opportunities and to love your life. Be wise enough to be grateful. Be courageous enough to be happy.

- A Ray of Sunshine (authenticlove789.wordpress.com)
I live in probably the rainiest city in the South, Greenville-South Carolina (yes the home of Delvin Choice from The Voice lol.) In Greenville, it rains (monsoons) for at least four days d a week and then the rest of the week is filled with beautiful rays of sunshine.
We have to maintain a positive attitude and remember that each time God shines a little sunshine in our lives, it is an opportunity for us to show our gratitude and to bring positivity to others. Be a ray of sunshine! Don’t allow your complaints to turn your life into a continual rainy day. Recognize the good that you are experiencing and rest in God’s goodness towards you. Just rest in His eternal light!
- Sunshine (lifeasagarden.wordpress.com)
Sunshine doesn’t have to be something that is external from you, but instead, it can be internal and live deep down inside of you. It can be raining and gloomy, or snowing and cold, but because of the glow from your sunshine, you will be toasty and warm.
That little ray of sunshine chases away the blues when the ego tries to bring trouble into view. Sometimes you do have to dig very deep to grab your sunshine up from the heap, but it’s worth it when the road gets rough and tough up ahead.

- You Are My Sunshine by Kasey Carney (countrymarketplace.wordpress.com)
You Are My Sunshine, first recorded during the Great Depression in 1939 by the Pine Ridge Boys, is an American classic.
Recently, a young woman dropped by the store to choose her Sunshine sign. She explained that she was a little girl when her mother passed away. Her grandmother used to sing the Sunshine song to her and tell her stories about her mom. She said being at Country Marketplace and seeing the sign reminded her of the two important women in her life. I was so touched she shared her story with me.
- Cold Sun (thelovesprockets.wordpress.com)
In my state of melancholy, all I really wanted was to lay in the sunshine and be warmed by His loving rays.
But I felt no warmth from this particular sunshine.
I felt resigned to the possibility that maybe I was going to die and I didn’t much care anymore. I scribbled down some words in a notebook, picked up my guitar, and in less than 10 minutes had a song floating in the air around me.
Do you believe that every day brings the possibility for a little ray of sunshine? Or does negativity overshadow your life? Is your glass half-empty and running out fast? Or is it half-full and waiting for a sparkling refill? The choice is yours.
An upbeat attitude can bring brighten up the gloomiest of circumstances. Choosing to think positively can revive you when you feel weary, provide clarity in chaos and keep you encouraged during uncertainty And when you make a conscious decision to refuse to allow the darkness to engulf you, you keep the way clear for your optimistic thoughts to shine.
Admittedly there are some days when tragedy strikes or a huge disappointment has to be dealt with and it is impossible to feel anything but despair. That’s a natural and expected way to…

In Scripture, all things are directed towards a man who was a servant of servants, in whom people should come to have faith. First we saw the connection with Eve and her seed, and in this article you may see the connection with Abraham.
Already in the Old Testament we find the focus on a son of man who is called the son of God, who shall be the most pure set apart (holy) servant of God who was been told about in the Garden of Eden, to be the one bruised.
Many Old Testament writers wrote about the prophet to come, about whom is spoke in the book of Moses and who shall be the special “Seed of a woman” given by God and who will bruise Satan’s head whilst his heel would be bruised with nails on the wooden stake.
Jewish and Christian literature since the time of Yeshua or Jeshua have pointed to Genesis 3:15 as the first reference to the Messiah in the Torah.

From the time of Alexander the Great in the fourth century B.C.E., Jews lived in a world in which Greek culture carried a certain prestige and offered a route to political influence.

You must love your neighbor as yourself.—Jas. 2:8.

Indeed, impartiality needs to be more than a veneer. It must be a genuine part of our […]

The One Who created everything and Who gave His Word, did all He did with a purpose and out of love. The Bible teaches us that “God is love.” (1 John 4:8) Everything God does is motivated by love. Out of love created man in His image also with the intention to have a good relationship […]

Time to come face to face with the King in the field.
The surest way of ensuring our happiness and success in life is by devoting ourselves wholeheartedly to learning what God expects of us (by studying His Torah), by addressing our prayers directly to Him, and by fulfilling His will.
Time to reflect.
For all the world is nothing more than the means by which you will connect the above with the below.

Joden indien zij hun oude Geschriften diepgaand onderzoeken kunnen tot de ontdekking komen wie de lang beloofde Messiach is en kunnen daarbij ook voldoende redenen vinden om die Messias of Christus te volgen en deelgenoten te worden van ‘zijn lichaam’ en alzo als Jood voor Christus door het leven te gaan.
In het Joodse geloof zijn er de apart geplaatste boeken maar ook legendes welke vertellen over de man Abraham welke wij als onze aartsvader aanschouwen, omdat de elohim hem heeft uitverkoren om de vader van velen te zijn.
De Bijbelse naam Abraham betekent ‘verheven vader’. Dit was de Chaldese naam van Abraham. Toen Abram door God werd gekozen om de stamvader te worden van Gods volk, werd hij Abraham genoemd, wat ‘vader van vele volken’ betekent.
Adam mag dan wel de eerste man zijn die de wereld kent, maar voor ons geloof is de nomade wiens naam van Abram naar Abraham verandert is door God veel belangrijker.
In voorgaand en volgend bericht gaan wij dieper op die Bijbelse figuur in.
In ons geloof kijken wij gerust ook naar het begin aller tijden maar betreft ons geloof nemen wij anderen dan Adam en Eva als onze grote voorouders. Hij die voor ons de eer krijgt om onze aartsvader te zijn is Abraham.
