The Silent Years


You may be going through a period of silence, where you feel like you’re not hearing from God, and where you’re not understanding what’s going on. But if you don’t give up your Suddenly will come.

Pressure Makes You Grow


Just because it’s uncomfortable, it doesn’t mean that it’s not God. God works the most when we go through the most uncomfortable places in life with high pressure. Because that’s when we have no choice but to fully focus on Him, and reach out to Him and let Him lead us. That’s the times we grow the most into the thing God wants us to be.

God uses two kinds of pressure. Sometimes He uses discomfort and pressure to make us grow and to form and shape us into what He wants us to be. The other type of pressure He uses is pressure and discomfort to push us out of our comfort zone and to force us to change our life and circumstances.

If you’re going through great pressure right now, then ask God to show you why you’re going through this discomfort, whether it’s to make you grow, or if it’s to make you change certain things with your life.

Pressure that makes you grow into the person God wants you to be is better than comfort that gets you nowhere. No matter how hard it is, do what you can to press through the pressure, and be sure that on the other side of that pain is great gain, rewards and compensation that you don’t want to be without.

Press Through The Pressure

Have An Attitude Of Gratitude


It’s All About Attitude

Life is often as difficult or as easy as we make it; life is our attitude towards it, you can say to yourself that life is hard or that it is easy and so it will be. You can say to yourself, “I can’t do this, I give up,” or you can say to yourself, “I won’t give up, and I won’t give in, I will succeed,” whatever you say, so it will be.

You can say to yourself that every day is difficult, you can say to yourself that working is hard, cleaning the house, washing the dishes, cooking, or baking is difficult and exhausting. Or you can say to yourself that it is easy and enjoyable. You can say to yourself that you won’t be happy unless you have this or have that, or you can say to yourself that you will be happy everyday anyway, no matter what happens.

Everything is about attitude. You can see a poor person with nothing being happy and satisfied. And you can see a rich person with everything he needs and wants and more but being depressed and sad all the time. What makes the greatest difference in these two people’s lives? It’s their attitude.

It’s about making a choice; it’s about choosing an attitude of gratitude and being happy with what you have, whether it’s much or little. It’s also about really getting to know God when you have nothing; when God is everything you have, then you really get to know and appreciate Him. When you don’t have material wealth to rely on and build your happiness on, you really have to search within you for true inner happiness, which is the only true foundation you can really rely on. Because the outer happiness is a foundation that can easily be destroyed.

Choose to have an attitude that says that life is good, valuable, and enjoyable every day, good or bad. Choose a heaven state of mind!

WE CHOOSE OUR OWN HELL OR HEAVEN; CHOOSE HEAVEN.

Stop Making Excuses


People have a lot of excuses for wrong behavior. But excuses don’t make up for responsibility. We all have a responsibility to love, respect, care, and have compassion towards each other. We have a responsibility to be honest, truthful, loving, and kind and help those around us who are in need. We also have a responsibility to follow God’s word. We all make mistakes, but when God speaks to you and convicts you to change your ways, you should do it.

People make many excuses not to get involved with helping other people and lending them a helping hand. God is not asking you to be used, abused, manipulated, or walked all over, but He’s asking you to reach out a hand for those who really are in desperate need of help.

Don’t make excuses like: “Why should I do it? Nobody else is doing anything.” Why not you? Why shouldn’t you be the one who does something to uplift another person’s life? You won’t be held accountable for what other people did or didn’t do; you will only be accountable for your own actions.

They will be held accountable for not keeping their responsibility, and so will you if you don’t do what you should do. Why shouldn’t you be the one to forgive and apologize? Why shouldn’t you be the one who makes a little sacrificial discomfort in your own life to help make another person’s life better and more comfortable? It won’t bother God if you do your best to spread positivity and goodness around you and to the people you meet. Just because other people are living selfish, wicked, or unrighteous lives, it doesn’t mean that you have to do it as well.

Do your best so that the day you’re face to face with God, He can be proud of you and so that you won’t have any regrets. It’s better to do too much than too little. Try your best.

God doesn’t require us to succeed; he only requires that you try.
Mother Teresa

You Are Forgiven


Hebrews 8:12:
For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.

God is not mad at you. God knew everything you were ever going to do or say long before you did it. And still He loves you, and still He has chosen you to be A Valuable Child of His. Making mistakes does not make you lose God’s love for you. God is still here, and He’s still helping you to become a better person and to be the best that you can be. He sees the potential in you and wants to bring it out of you; He wants to see you shine and wants to see you happy. Guilt and shame won’t do you any good, and it’s unnecessary. Why beat yourself up and resent yourself for something God has already forgiven you for the first time you asked for forgiveness? Have faith in God’s love and forgiveness for and towards you. There’s nothing you can do to make Him lose His love for you. God’s love is unconditional and everlasting.

Your debt is cancelled, your past is forgiven; you can now freely move on to and focus on the future. It was all cleared out the moment you decided to follow God and be obedient to Him.

Being obedient to God doesn’t mean that you are never able to do anything fun for yourself. It means that you are allowing God to lead you to a life that is right for you and good for you and that brings you more happiness and peace than what you are having now.

The More They Were Afflicted, The More They Multiplied And Grew


Exodus 1:12 says:

“But the more the Egyptians oppressed them, the more the Israelites multiplied and spread, and the more alarmed the Egyptians became.”

Sometimes God allows difficulties to happen in His children’s lives so that they can grow stronger and so that their strength, faith and power can multiply. The more the kingdom of darkness attacks our kingdom of light, the greater our light will shine, spread and multiply. Don’t give up, because Great Changes Are Happening all over the world now.

If you Have Your Eyes Open, then you will see and understand that everything that has happened the last few years has been for our own good, and for the good of all of the children of God. Trust and believe, and you will see miracles happening on Earth in this lifetime.

We are already seeing great changes happening on earth, there are more than thousands of inspiring, encouraging and motivating Facebook and Twitter pages, and millions of followers on these pages. We can see more and more celebrities shining their light and shining light on the things that are wrong in this world. More and more people are awakening and being enlightened to the truth about themselves, the world and our Creator.

More and more people are starting to understand the individual power we all have to change our world through changing our minds, our thinking and our behavior, and through following God and His guidance.

Great things are happening, so this is not the time to give up, this is the time to PUSH (Press Until Something Happens), until the birth of the Promises God has given us has come to Life. Don’t Give Up, You’re Almost There.

Staying In The Safety Zone


                                                       There’s A Balance Of Good And Evil
The truth is that in life there will always be a mix of good and bad things. If you’re searching for a perfect life filled with just good and happy days, you’re having unrealistic expectations and you’re in for being disappointed. There will always be days that are less than perfect and people who will act less than perfectly. But you can make imperfect days better and better by having the right kind of attitude. Even though there are bad days and difficult times we can choose to stay unaffected by them.

You can never be so righteous that bad things won’t happen to you. Bad things are a part of life even if we do everything right.

Having faith is not to avoid trials, difficulties, or tribulations, but it is to go through them and overcome them easier, knowing that everything happens for a reason and that everything will turn out fine.

The truth is that you are perfect, exactly as you are right now. The word perfect means “complete in all respects.” Since you are a full quantum being, you have an equal balance of positive and negative traits, thereby making you a work of perfection, both in body and in mind.
Remind yourself daily that no matter what you have done or not done, you are worthy of love.
John DeMartini

                                                                                   Safety Zones
Many of us had a good, safe childhood because we were protected by our parents or other adults and we stayed in their safety zone for us. Then we grew up and got into messes we don’t even understand how we got into.

Like our parents, God has guidelines and restrictions for us that can keep us safe and happy; if we keep them, we are protected inside of His safety zone. If we go away from His guidelines and safety zone, we most likely will end up in trouble. God’s safety zone is made to keep us from evil, darkness, misery, and messes.

Many people are deceived into thinking that the safety zone is boring, that God’s safety zone is keeping us from having fun or “living our lives.” But the truth is that God’s safety zone is what helps us to “live our lives.” It keeps us living our lives happily and safely instead of miserably and unhappily.

                                            Living Life God’s Way Or Living Our Life Our Way
God created the commandments as boundaries that He wants us to follow so that we can be happy and fruitful in life. But He has also given us the liberty to have free will. Unlike animals that are controlled by instincts, we have a mind of our own and have the ability to think and make choices on our own.
But even if those commandments and boundaries are there, we are the ones who have to choose to keep them or not. We still have the choice and the ability to walk outside those safety zones. But if we choose to use our free will to walk outside God’s safety zone, it will have consequences.

If we use our free will to commit adultery, we can end up in a mess of unwanted diseases, pregnancies, or other problems. If we use our free will to steal, manipulate, or lie, we can destroy our relationships with the people around us, or even worse, we can end up in jail.

If we use our free will to do things that go against the commandments, it will have uncomfortable consequences that really aren’t worth it. Have the troubles and the messes you’ve created been worth the momentary joy and comfort it brought you?
