Keep Your Peace

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your peace that rules my heart. I choose Your peace today and thank you for guiding my every step. I choose to be thankful today and bless You for Your faithfulness. In Jesus Name. Amen.

This world is sometimes frantic, and many times it is easy to get caught up in making the same fast paced judgements about situations that everyone else seems to make. As we participate in life to the fullest each day, we must remember that what is key to being that productive dreamer who is active, pursuing their goals, is keeping the love and peace inside of us.

Sometimes chaos will be the norm, but just because chaos in your social and physical environments may be celebrated by a majority, doesn’t necessarily mean that they are right. Do not get caught up in the brainwashing agenda of some…you were given your own brain to think for yourself. There is greatness inside of you, and you have to search deep inside of your heart to know what is really right, and to figure out what is really worth fighting for.

Dear, Take Heart…

Today, a good friend tried to express her pains with this question:
“HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH LOSING A BEST FRIEND? And I mean a best friend who is dying? And you can’t tell her anything or see her because she is in a comma on a life support? It’s been 4 weeks and she was getting a little better but now is expected to never wake up…what do I do?… I’m tired of crying.
I found this really touching because she once mentioned it earlier(a few days ago) and repeating it this time really showed how painful it is for her.

I tried my best to console her with these words:
“Keep praying for her and ask God to forgive her, all the wrongs she has done to others. Forgive her for every pain she caused you and in your tears of wanting her back, see this moment as a period you have to learn to live without her physically, and to do the good things she has always wanted you to do. In doing so, I believe you would make her happy wherever she is…even if she’s still in your heart. You can miss her always but be happy that you had the chance of being in her life for once… And hope that someday, you’ll see her again…happier than she ever was. Take heart dear, it’s sad but Life has to go on.”

Love Is The Greatest

Someone asked, ” My heart says I LOVE HIM but my mind says HE’S NOT WORTH IT… What should I believe?”

In an attempt to answer her, I replied:
If you want Love, go through your heart not your mind. The mind hardly agrees with the heart when it comes to Love. You can change and convince your mind to go along with your new choice but it’s more difficult if not impossible…changing the feelings of the heart once it begins… And if your heart is in Love and then the feeling suddenly fades away, then it was lust not Love. I believe Love is a feeling that never fades…it only can get clearer, more beautiful, deeper and more awesome as time goes… LOVE remains the greatest feeling ever!


A Boy And The Frog Princess

One day, a boy was walking down a road when a frog called to him, ” Boy, if you kiss me, I will turn into a beautiful princess.” The boy picked up the frog, smiled at it, then placed the frog carefully into his pocket. A few minutes later, the frog said, ” Boy if you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will stay with you for a week.” The boy took the frog from his pocket, smiled at it, then put it back into his pocket. A few minutes later, the frog said, ” Boy, if you kiss me, I will do ANYTHING you want!” The boy took the frog from his pocket, smiled, and put it back. Finally, the frog cried, ” Boy, what is the matter, I have told you that I am a beautiful princess, and if you kiss me, I will stay and do ANYTHING you want!.” The boy took the frog from his pocket and said, “look, I am an engineering student, I have no time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog is cool!”
