Let 2017 be the year you will go deeper in God

Let it be 365 days of focusing on God. Days and hours of going deeper in Him, growing in faith and wisdom. Learn to practice daily an attitude of thanksgiving. Some times inbetween conversations and activities pause and say “Thank You Jesus”. Sometimes when you feel extremely frustrated  pause and thank Him, because somehow you will know everything’s gonna be alright all because you have Him. Feel so hopeful, let the joy of the Lord bubble on your inside despite the challenges. Let it be a year of experiencing God.

Let 2017 be the year you will dwell on the beauty of self-discovery.

The year you will come to meet the new and improved you. The year you will create new things, explore new passions, visit places you never thought of visiting. The year you will remain in the things that excite you and fire up every cell in your body. The year you will finally live. Fearless in the pursuit of what ignites your heart. Not frightened on new possibilities, on new opportunities. Brave enough to risk and take a leap bigger than you, resilient enough to welcome major changes. Looking positively to the things that may happen.

Let 2017 be the year you will fall in love with yourself.

The year you will come to know the things you like, the things you dislike and being perfectly okay with it. The year you will learn more about yourself, about your flaws and shortcomings and be able to have a heart big enough to accept all of that and have the courage and the strength to love it for all of what it is. The year you will embrace your imperfections and realize that these are all the parts that makes you uniquely beautiful. Let 2017 be simply the year you will work hard to love yourself, truly.

Let 2017 be the year you will open your eyes to the richness of life and of people.

The year you will treasure life despite all of its awful parts, depressing moments and horrible situations. The year you will be certain that without all these, life will never be the same and life will never be this great, amazing learning adventure. Without all these, life will definitely be incomplete. Let this year be the year you will cherish the goodness in other people despite their flaws and imperfections. The year you will look deeper, deeper enough to see the goodness in them, the things that are admirable, the things that are out of the kindness of their heart. Let it be the year you will assuredly appreciate them for the times they tried, the times they did their best; the year you will get a grasp of the fact that they are enough even though they fall short of your expectations, they are sufficient even though they can’t fulfill your desires, that they are at their best version and you are just blinded by your expectations to honor it. Let this year be the year you will veritably recognize the things they do for you, the qualities that make them incredible and just love them for who they are.

Let 2017 be the year that you will be compassionate and delicate to everyone you meet.

The year you will completely comprehend that everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about. A battle that is altogether hard and painful. The year you have to be mindful on the struggles of other people; that you are not the only person on Earth that is in need of a friend. Let it be the year you will ask “How are you? I hope you’re doing well” instead of expecting and waiting around people to ask how you are. Let this year be the year you will be able to understand that they have needs like you, they have priorities, they have problems; may we understand that our job is to be present, and be there for them instead of always being the one they need to attend to; let us be the ones to attend to them. Let this year be the year you will truly love, love to the point that you will be selfless enough to put the needs of others above yours, for the first time.

Let 2017 be the year you will finally heal.

The year you will rise above every heartache, sorrow and loss. The year you will mend every battle scar and open wound. The year you will gather all the broken pieces of your heart, of your soul, of your life, putting them altogether and bandaging every crack, until it becomes whole again. Let this be the year you will realize that it’s okay to be broken, to cry, to grieve, but it’s not okay to stay like that forever. Let this year be a year of hope, assurances that there will be better days for you, that there is a joy set before you, after all these mourning. That the sun will rise and the storm will cease, and the aftermath will not be as messy as the calamity but it will be beautiful, it will be a glorious. Let this year be the year you will realize that the ruins are magnificent. Let this year be a year of utter healing. Healing over every physical, mental, emotional and spiritual pain and suffering. A year of regaining all the lost strength and courage, a year of admittance – that we are broken, that we need healing. A year of just taking your time to heal, no matter how slow, as long as you are healing. A year you will no longer fake strength; but just be honest with what’s going on inside you. Let this year be the year you will be whole, again.

Let 2017 be the year you will let go and let God.

The year you will let life be what it is designed to be. Let go of every unpleasant thing that has happened before, of every undying plan – and just let it be. Let go of the unshakeable desire to achieve life in perfect detail of how you want it to be and just be able to allow it for what it is.

Let 2017 be the year you will realize that you are created to survive and for a greater purpose.

Being in love. By Fredy.

   

This is a post I found very interesting. It brings out the emotions and feelings in an amazing and clear way. Enjoy .
‘Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable.It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.You build up this defenses,you build up a whole suit of armor,so that nothing can hurt you,then one stupid person,no different from any other stupid person,wanders into your stupid life…you give them a piece of you.They didn’t ask for it.They did something dumb one day,like kiss you or smile at you,and then your life isn’t your own anymore.Love takes hostages.It gets inside you.It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness,so simple a phrase like ‘maybe we should be just friends’ turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart.It hurts.Not just in the imagination.Not just in the mind.It’s a soul-hurt,a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain…’

Emotions.

>emotions

Emotions are what drives us or what drives us astray. when under emotions you can either create life or destroy it. For instance out of happiness you find yourself telling someone you love them after they have done a wonderful thing for you but later you realize you didn’t mean those words.And maybe to that person the ‘I love you’ and meant so much to them(him/her). How will you rectify that?

Many times in my life, I have made decisions which are crowded by emotions. And most of the times the decisions are always 98% wrong! I find myself doing things and saying words which I regret later when I am no longer under the influence of emotions.

To overcome this I have learnt the principle of patience. And with time I have realized that patience overcomes emotions leading to wise decisions.

Do not allow emotions to control you instead control your emotions.

Ephesians 4:29
“Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers”

Kindness in my life

Something I have thought a lot about over this past few months it’s kindness. Kindness, which has been shown to me is special and one of a kind.Something I will cherish for the rest of time.
While fighting a battle
To this very day
I have learned,
Be kind
Whether it be a battle of the mind
Or a physical battle.
Kindness is a gift , given freely.
For the next person you meet
May be fighting
A harder battle in life than you.
Kindness is a gift
Something you can pass on
With a smile
A gift from God
Always be kind no matter the situation,
You will heal many hearts through your acts of kindness,
Mine has been healed by the smallest acts of kindness from others.
Even when frustrations come, smile.
It’s not the end, you will overcome.
It costs you nothing to show compassion to others.
To smile,
For you never know when you will bless some one.
I am kind because have been shown kindness not only by people but my Father also..

Isaiah 54:8
  In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the LORD thy Redeemer.  
To those who have been kind to me, I am grateful. I can’t say thank you enough. But The Lord will bless you.

Cling on Him daily

How often do we try to handle our own problems and wait until things get really bad before we cry out to God?  We waste so much time and energy trying to deal with things ourselves, when God really wants us to bring everything to Him first.  He does not want us to wait until things go sour to get Him involved; He wants to be involved in every aspect of our lives.  God wants to be consulted on everything we do, and He wants to be a part of our decision making process in all things.  In reality, we should be crying out to God every single day, not just when things are bad.  Every single day we should surrender ourselves to His will.  We should let Him lead us, as we simply follow His guidance.  When we cry out to Him in prayer when times are good and press into Him daily, we are less likely to create our own desperate situations.  Please do not misunderstand what I am saying – I am not suggesting that when we cry out to God He will immediately solve all of our earthly problems and fix all of our mistakes.  Crying out to God is not some magic wand we can wave to get our will.  However, when we cry out to God, we can be assured of one thing – He will bring us peace.  He will bring us the peace that comes in knowing that regardless what our present circumstances are here in this temporary home, our eternal circumstances in our permanent home are secure.  When we cling to Him daily, we will never lose perspective on what is truly important.  Our troubles here in this world are just a moment in time, but our eternal life with God lasts forever.  In Psalm 39  verse 5, You have made my days a mere handbreadth; the span of my years is as nothing before you. Each man’s life is but a breath.”  Cry out to God today and focus on the eternal.  Focus on what really matters, and let God take care of the rest.
