“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…

Gelooft u het getuigenis van God, zijn Zoon en zijn dienaren? God beloofde de Verlosser te zijn van wie geloven.

Heeft de wetenschap al ooit kunnnen bewijzen dat God niet bestaat? In welke mate wil men alle moderne wetenschappelijke inzichten in de strijd gooien en/of zijn gezond verstand gebruiken en getuigenissen in de omgeving opnemen en deze met de Woorden uit de Heilige Schrift vergelijken?

Toestand van de doden De gedachten over de toestand van de doden, zoals we die vinden in het Oude Testament, komen velen erg deprimerend over.

We gaan verder in op de vraag of er wel bewijzen kunnen gevonden worden dat er één God of meerdere goden zijn die hebben ingestaan voor het ontstaan van het universum.

Bible prophecies do not deal only with the ancient past. They also accurately foretell events that are taking place in our day. But at the moment we focus at numerous prophecies preserved in the Hebrew Scriptures (commonly called the Old Testament) which long before the man was born told about events which would happen in his time and around him, his betrayal, humiliation, torture, execution, death, and burial. From those writings of the Old and New Testament nobody should have doubts who that man is who is called Immanuel, the son of man and Messiah, born out of the root of Jess in the tribe of king David.
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. Genesis 3:15 NHEBJE I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He will bruise your head, and you will bruise his […]

Biblical scholarship, Biblical criticism with Humanities are branches of knowledge that concern themselves with human beings and their culture or with analytic and critical methods of inquiry derived from an appreciation of human values and of the unique ability of the human spirit to express itself and are concerned to avoid dogma and bias by applying a non-sectarian, reason-based judgment, trying to reconstruct history according to contemporary understanding. Studying aspects of human society and culture, based on historical findings and available documents, using the grammar, structure, development, and relationship of language to identify such characteristics as the Bible’s literary structure, its genre, its context, meaning, authorship, and origins.

In the previous writings we saw that the Divine Creator gave His Word to the world so that people could come to know Him. The Bible is a gift from God. It gives us information that we can’t find anywhere else. For example, it tells us that God created the heavens, the earth, and the […]
It is never too late to start the good habit of regularly reading the Bible, a Book of hope and comfort.
At the beginning of the new schoolyear there is a good reason from now on to invest each day in meeting with God.
Our sages regarded the 15th of Av to be one of the two most auspicious days on the Jewish calendar (the other being Yom Kippur — Talmud, Taanit 26b).
People would be surprised when they would come to be assured that it is possible to come to live in a truly healthy universe. That is possible when all human beings will realise that we all need one another.

Internet gebruik en vergiffenis op de Sabbath Groot probleem in de Joodse gemeenschap over internet verbindingen voor virtuele diensten is dat een groot deel van hen geen computer gebruikt net als dat zij die dit wel hebben, deze zeker niet gebruiken op de Sabbath of sjabbos. De sjabbes is voor velen ‘heilig’, zodat zij zich […]
Het coronavirus heeft ook haar weerslag voor vele geloofsgemeenschappen. Zij die zich aan de Ene Ware God willen opdragen hebben nu soms het gevoelen dat zij hun God te kort doen doordat zij niet meer het gebod van samenkomst en gezamenlijk gebed kunnen volbrengen. Zij voelen zich ver van hun thuishaven dat onbereikbaar lijkt geworden.
De angst voor het coronavirus houdt de Westerse landen in de greep terwijl Noord en Zuid Amerika het afwimpelen als iets onschuldigs en hun economie er zeker niet willen voor opzij schuiven. De corona pandemie slaagt er in om de gehele wereld in een ongekende levenswijze te brengen waarbij meerdere beperkingen de mensen slaven van een onbeheersbare ziekte worden.
In België en Nederland zitten heel wat mensen met een vast beeld in hun hoofd voor gebedshuizen, of het nu kerken, synagoges of moskeeën zijn. Wij hoeven ons echter niet vast te klampen aan zulke stereotype beelden en moeten beseffen dat God op iedere plek aanroepen en aanbeden kan worden. – In dit eerste deel kijken wij naar veroorzakers van vermindering vaan aanwezige aanbidders van God in samenkomst plaatsen.
Lockdown wegens coronavirus, gelegenheid om tijd te nemen voor je zelf en om even wat meer tijd te nemen om aan de Elohim te denken.
Volgens de Bijbel is de mens geschapen naar het beeld van God. Allah schiep de aarde en alles erop en eromheen. In plaats van dankbaar te zijn voor wat de mens van hun Schepper ontving, twijfelden ze aan Zijn autoriteit en wilden ze net zoveel kennis en macht hebben als Hij. Daarom aten ze van […]
According to Scriptures man was created in the image of God. Allah created earth and everything on it and around it. Instead of being thankful for what man received from their Creator, they doubted His authority and wanted to have as much knowledge and power like He has. Therefore they ate from the Tree of […]
The intention of this site was to be able to find answers to some serious questions and to know what others thought about it. But there were no answers from others and silence continued to form the fog.
Bedoeling van deze site was op enkele ernstige vragen antwoorden te kunnen vinden en te weten hoe anderen er over dachten. Maar antwoorden van anderen bleven uit en stilte bleef de mist vormen.
In this world we shall become even more confronted by people, be them politicians or church-leaders who would love to tell us than matters or different than we see it. Many of them will give the lie to make sure they would be more popular and receive more power. We must know that we shall […]
In which way can the Bible be a book to trust?
At the beginning of our contemporary age a son of man was hailed, by some triumphantly praised as a king entering Jerusalem, by others regarded as a dangerous person undermining their power. About 2 000 years later it are still religious leaders who do not want people to come to know that Nazarene man or to accept him as the son of God and future King of this world.
Jesus told his disciples that he will return only once and that when he does, after a time of great tribulation, it will be visible to everyone and be followed by immediate and dire consequences for those unprepared and for those who were adversaries of God.
The disciples expected that Christ would “come” as King, with a royal presence, and to remove the Romans and thrown down the corrupt temple, all at the same time and soon! It was a disappointment for them it turned not out that way, but they came to understand we could have an even much better future because of what Jesus had done. Though they also became convinced of the necessity to be prepared for the time that Jesus would return and that each believer could add by his effort of preaching, to bring the time closer.
All Christians are commissioned and obligated to be evangelizers wherever they are, in that they preach the good news to all sorts of men.
it is now that life is mine i’ve been given a moment here on earth and my longing has brought me here what i missed and what i got it is still the road i’ve chosen my trust far beyond words that have showed me a little bit of the Heaven i’ve never reached i […]
ek skryf hierdie blog vir jou… hierdie was my boodskap aan jou… As ek my oë toemaak dan voel dit vir my of ek alleen iewers in die veld loop met honderde gedagtes in my kop maar daar is nog steeds ‘n kortsluiting tussen my ‘weet’ en die woorde wat by my mond moet uitkom. […]

Bible sharing passage for today. “Then the Lord answered me and said: Write down the vision Clearly upon the tablets, so that one can read it readily. For the vision still has its time, presses on to fulfillment, and will not disappoint; If it delays, wait for it, it will surely come, it will not … Continue reading Inspiration through Bible sharing 4
