Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desired can be won. It exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours.
Did you know that when you walk past a flower, whether it is in
somebody's garden or on a vacant hillside, the flower will always smile at you? The most polite way to respond, I've been told, is to cheerfully return the smile." Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. Ron Atchison& Marcel Proust
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
"This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind...let it be something good." Why not start your day with Thanksgiving this morning appriciating the Kings of Kings. Give him your dancing moves this mor
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.” Romance 1:16-17
This is a reminder!!! Listen to me, you who pursue righteousness and who seek the Lord: Look to the rock from which you were cut and to the quarry from which you were hewn; 2 look to Abraham, your father, and to Sarah, who gave you birth. When I called him he was only one man, and I blessed him and made him many. 3 The Lord will surely comfort Zion and will look with compassion on all her ruins; he will make her deserts like Eden, her wastelands like the garden of the Lord. Joy and gladness will be found in her, Thanksgiving and the sound of singing. Isaiah 51:1-3. I want you to Trust in the Lord This Morning and Believe, all your pain he sees and all your sadness he sees, but Trust in Him and its going to be just Fine. The Lord that did it for the whole Israelites will surely come to your aid as long as you trust in him.
Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now. "Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great." I want you to believe this morning that the Storm will soon be over. There is nobody that tells that story more than James Fortune and His amazing choir.
"He Still Loves Me"
Took me a while But I'm finally here So I just want to testify and Make it crystal clear, See I've been picked out To be picked on, talked about by my friends mouth
I've been beat down till He turned my life around, seems like I always fall short of being worthy, because I aint good enough but he still loves me, I am no superstar The spotlight aint shining on me because I aint good enough but he still loves me. I used to wake up some days and wish I'd stayed asleep because I went to bed on top of the world today the worlds on top of me everybody's got opinions (they share) They aint been in my position (they don't care) that it breaks my heart when I hear what they have to say about me yeah (what they say) seems like I always fall short (falling short) of being worthy (Lord I aint worthy) because I aint good enough but he still loves me (still loves me) I aint no superstar I want be for you The spotlight aint shining on me (but i want to be for you) because I aint good enough but he still loves me. Above is some of the lyrics from the song ' He still Loves me' from the Movie 'Fighting Temptation'. Always remember it is life is never easy you will always see somebody to put you down, you just have to decided when its enough. Remember Jesus Christ was also tempted when he was on Earth but he put himself together and say No.
“Smile at each other, smile at your wife, smile at your husband, smile at your children, smile at each other -- it doesn't matter who it is -- and that will help you to grow up in greater love for each other.” To help you begin your day of smile, who better than this African Gospel artist....
I believe in the sun, even when it is not shining.
I believe in love, even when i do not feel it.
I believe in God, even when He is silent.
Be such a man, and live such a life, that if every man were such as you, and every life a life like yours, this earth would be God's Paradise.
