Only 2 things determine if your life will end; God’s will, and if you choose to give up. As difficult as life can get (and I know we face challenges that shake our faith and test our strength), keep in mind; you thought you’d NEVER survive the last “thing” you went through. Well, here you are, still living! That said giving up should no longer be an option. ― Carlos Wallace
I believe that everything, the good and the bad, happens for a reason and is part of something bigger – purpose with a capital P. I also believe we each have an individual purpose, lowercase p, that fits in with the grander plan, and that part of the reason we are there is to find it, because everyone matters; each person’s contribution, large or small, has an impact. ― Marie Bostwick
There are two types of seeds in the mind: those that create anger, fear, frustration, jealousy, hatred and those that create love, compassion, equanimity and joy. Spirituality is germination and sprouting of the second group and transforming the first group. ― Amit Ray,
Some periods of our growth are so confusing that we don’t even recognize that growth is happening. We may feel hostile or angry or weepy and hysterical, or we may feel depressed. It would never occur to us, unless we stumbled on a book or a person who explained to us, that we were in fact in the process of change, of actually becoming larger, spiritually, than we were before. Whenever we grow, we tend to feel it, as a young seed must feel the weight and inertia of the earth as it seeks to break out of its shell on its way to becoming a plant. Often the feeling is anything but pleasant. But what is most unpleasant is the not knowing what is happening. Those long periods when something inside ourselves seems to be waiting, holding its breath, unsure about what the next step should be, eventually become the periods we wait for, for it is in those periods that we realize that we are being prepared for the next phase of our life and that, in all probability, a new level of the personality is about to be revealed. ― Alice Walker
When you internally forgive, it is like letting go of that heaviness that had you bound for some time, your feet a free to move, the pain is leaving, the hurt is decapitating and what remains is what each new day brings. The chance to start over again. ― YNG
We often look atforgivenessas something we do for others, we forgive, forget and move on. But forgiveness is not always about forgiving someone who has hurt you or done you wrong, it’s about burying the past and redeeming grace. Your Grace! Forgiveness is also a gift you give yourself. It’s about admitting to yourself that your peace is worth more than the punishment you are inflicting on yourself by not forgiving yourself.
Worry is the only CURRENCY that steals your total dependence on God, it is the transaction that leaves you in the debt called DEFEAT; it is the broken wall that keeps you defenseless against your enemies ― Dr Ikoghene S. Aashikpelokhai
Start each day with a positive thought and a grateful heart. ― Roy T. Bennett
Life is filled with celebrations. We celebrate pregnancy, and birth, and share a celebration of life when someone dies. How many times do we celebrate actual living? I know we live each day the cycle of eat, sleep, work, but what happens in between those hours? How are we living those hours? What is it that you’re doing right now to celebrate waking up this morning? Celebrations aren’t always about the fanfare, cake, balloons, cigars, or champaign. The simple act of gratitude, or doing something for yourself can be a celebration in itself. With all, its wonderful thrills, love and laughter, and happy moments, Life itself is a fanfare.
Just like freedom, Truth is not cheap. Yet both are worth more than all the gold in the world. But what is freedom, if there is no truth? And what is truth, if there is no freedom? Both are worth fighting for — because one without the other would be hell. ― Suzy Kassem
Do not come into agreement with fear. Activate your faith, live in victory, speak over your life and expect great things to come your way. ― Germany Kent
Keeping the faith during tough times can be difficult, even the firmest believers have their test of Faith many times during their lives. During times of trials, we question everything, our existence, our purpose and our conscious self. Consciousness and Faith are two sides of the same coin, one is the determining factor of how well the other works. Faith reflects the quality of our conscious being. Some are alienated by the word faith because it signifies the acknowledgement of someone higher than themselves having control. It signifies the exitance of God! This is by no means a lesson on Religion, it’s far from it. It’s a lesson on finding your place, purpose and spirituality!
