“Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.” ~ Philippians 2:3-4 KJV
One of the greatest gifts about life is… the FREEDOM to choose. GOD can command that we do whatever He wants us to do, but He doesn’t. Instead, He allows us to have the choice, good or bad, on how we handle all of life’s personal affairs. However, one thing that GOD does command is that we – humankind – treat each other well.
The world around us is full of people who make life difficult for us, at times. Some of us have bosses and supervisors who are overbearing and demanding. Others have relatives they don’t like being around… and friends who no longer show the same respect as they once did in the past. But, how does GOD want us to handle these people?Continue reading How Should You Treat Others? The Answer Might Surprise You!
“People tend to be generous when sharing their nonsense, fear, and ignorance. And while they seem quite eager to feed you their negativity, please remember that sometimes the diet we need to be on is a spiritual and emotional one. Be cautious with what you feed your mind and soul. Fuel yourself with positivity and let that fuel propel you into positive action.” ― Steve Maraboli
Are you happy? Are you pleased with the life you have, right now? If you’re not happy… what are you doing to make sure your future is a happy one… and that you will be satisfied with your life? What you do today, matters. It is up to you to do what it takes to be who you want to be.
Every day, do enjoy life – no matter how hard it might seem to you at times! Never allow the negative things people say about you… hold you back. Their negative talk against you, should be a clear sign to you that it’s the enemy at work. In reality, you should only be worried if everybody under the sun is singing your praises… because in those instances, the enemy is trying to play you and set you up for failure. When he can’t get to you one way, he most certainly is going to try other schemes to try to bring you down… in an attempt to destroy your life. Continue reading Be A Better You Today
“As Human beings… most of us rely on our ability to do things. We take pride in those things. We base what we are able to do off of: 1. Personal talent 2. Learned abilities and skills 3. Natural wisdom… and 4. Our own level of intelligence. Yet, true and meaningful change begins with trusting GOD – Who is the Giver of life, love and happiness” – P. Williamson
As we go through life… and the Enemy” and LIFE begins to challenge EVERYTHING that we are, it stumps us – it hurts us… and makes us question who we are – and undervalue our self-worth. This causes us to be harder on ourselves than what’s necessary. Especially when we come up against a situation we’ve never faced before… or get involved in something we thought we would never get involved it – but did. It’s called pride.
I came across a beautiful story of the self-healing process in a book entitled, Offerings at the Wall, which includes a selection of some of the 90,000 letters and mementos that veterans and their loved ones have left at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. In 1989, a worn photograph of a young Vietnamese man and a little girl was placed at the wall, along with the following letter: Continue reading Part 2 – How To Forgive: The Need For Self-Forgiveness
“I have learned, that the person I have to ask for forgiveness from the most is: myself. You must love yourself. You have to forgive yourself, everyday, whenever you remember a shortcoming, a flaw, you have to tell yourself “That’s just fine”. You have to forgive yourself so much, until you don’t even see those things anymore. Because that’s what love is like.” ― C. JoyBell C.
Most of us know… no one can love us if we don’t love ourselves. We know we shouldn’t blame ourselves for things other people have done to us. And, we know we need to accept ourselves for who they are, or else we’ll never be happy. However, it’s amazing how a person can understand something logically, but not be able to connect with it, emotionally – and apply it to daily life. This is what happens when it comes to forgiveness. It’s usually harder to forgive yourself for things… than it is to forgive others. Yet, self-forgiveness is a prerequisite for personal happiness.
For sure, forgiving yourself takes time, and effort. When you do get it, it’s wonderful and freeing, but it takes practice to develop it. Most of us have thought to ourselves, “I did something awful, now I feel like there’s a big hole in me… I thought I was doing the right thing, but now I feel miserable. I’m ashamed that if others knew what I’ve done… people will judge me for it. I didn’t break any law, I just broke a personal promise. Now what?” Continue reading Part 1 – How To Forgive: The Challenge Of Personal Forgiveness
