~All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.~
A man just got married and was returning home with his wife. They were crossing a lake in a boat, when suddenly a great storm arose. The man was not worried, but the woman became very much afraid because it seemed almost hopeless.
The boat was small and the storm was really huge, and any moment they were going to be drowned. But the man sat silently, calm and quiet, as if nothing was happening. The woman was trembling and she said, ” Are you not afraid? This maybe our last moment of life! It doesn’t seem that we will be able to reach the other shore. Only some miracle can save us; otherwise death is certain. Are you not afraid? Are you mad or something? Are you stone or something?.”
The man smiled and took the sword out of its sheath. The woman was even more puzzled: what he was doing? Then he brought the naked sword close to the woman’s neck, so close that just a small gap was there, it was almost touching her neck.
He said, “Are you afraid?”
She started to laugh and said, “Why should I be afraid?, if the sword is in your hands, why should I be afraid? I know you love me.
He put the sword back and said, “This is my answer, I KNOW GOD LOVES ME, AND THE STORM IS IN HIS HANDS.”
So whatsoever is going to happen, trust in God. If we survive, good; if we don’t survive, good. Everything is in His hands and He cannot do anything wrong.
QUOTES FOR THE DAY:
Where can we go to find God if we cannot see Him in our hearts and in every living being.
Friendship-my definition- is built on two things: Respect and Trust. Both elements have to be there. And it has to be mutual. You can have respect for someone, but if you don’t have trust, the friendship will crumble.
Beautiful things happen when a woman trusts God.
Feeding ourselves with beauty and perfection is evidence of our desires and need for God’s presence.
This isn’t always easy to learn. You or someone you love may have to live with the reality of a mind, body or soul injury. With all your heart, you may always want to fix, change or redo something…and you can’t.
Some things may never be perfect. But with time, God can take the hard and make you happy. He can take the sorrow and make you smile.
Resist the urge to tuck your tail and hide every time you run into the hard, because you will not only be hiding from the hard, you will be exempting yourself from the good that’s down the road.
-Psalm 28:7 and Proverbs 31:30
Remember, feeding your mind and soul with beauty and perfection is evidence of our desires and need for God’s presence!
Keep your day beautiful!
