You are UNIQUE

Today, God wants you to know that 

no one can make you feel inferior without your consent.

You have to agree that you are less and that someone else is more to feel inferior.

If you don’t agree, you can not possibly feel inferior.

You might know something less, or you might be able to do something less,

but you ARE unique and hence simply incomparable.

Do not buy into being reduced to an object of comparison.

A fresh start is always possible

God wants you to know that 

a new beginning is always possible.

Let the greening of the Earth in springtime

be a sign for you that a new beginning

is always possible,

even after the longest,

coldest, darkest winter.

Silence bears a real prayer

God wants you to know that most of your words are unnecessary.

All too often you speak simply to fill the space with sound, because you feel too uncomfortable with the silence.

But this silence is golden.

Only in silence you can hear God speak to you.

Only in silence can a real prayer, a heart prayer be born.

Next time you start chattering, stop and feel into the silence, feel its shape, its texture, and then slowly and silently say only what really has to be said.

I guess I’m back?

Hey everyone! It’s been a while, like a lot while, since I posted on this blog. I was on nearly-2-year hiatus. So much has happened since late 2017. But I’m excited to be back and I hope this is for good. So here’s what I’m sharing today…

God wants you to know that you’ve got what it takes.

God won’t give you more than you can handle.

Although there may have been times you thought the world was caving in on you,

you got through it.

You are much stronger than you think and with God’s power,

you are stronger than you can imagine.

So charge ahead, you can handle it.

Forgiving yourself shouldn’t be as hard as you think it is

 

Not everyone is strong enough to forgive themselves straightaway, even after the people they have done wrong have forgiven them, and even after the God Almighty has forgiven them. Some keep those awful emotions around them like a blanket, covering their entire body and refusing to cease the wailing – to the point of uselessness.

If you’re one of those who finds it hard to move on from past mistakes, how are you keeping up with your life then? This is a curious question so please don’t get offended. Everyone messes up, the greatest of all saints have messed up, but I don’t think they have spent the rest of their lives walking down the low road of self-pity, regret, guilt and shame. What I think they did was acknowledged their mistakes, took responsibility for them with appropriate feelings of remorse, made amends, and learned from them so they don’t happen again.

I know it isn’t that easy for everyone. It might be tough for you. But it doesn’t make any sense to let your guilt drown you in shame and beat yourselves up when the Good Lord has already forgiven you. As they say, anything past the point of learning is just needless suffering and excessive guilt. You’re not only destroying yourself but your relationship with others as well.
