Reflecting from the past

What do you see in yourself that has learned from your past, good and bad? Have you realized those thoughts, words, and deeds that have brought you to this point and how they are impacting your life today? Learn from the bad, but dwell on those things that you see that are good. Make a list of the good ones!

At your lowest point, did you ever think you would have been able to do some of the things you are able to do now?

So many little things all the way up to the big things are improving daily, even if you do not see it yet. Each day you wake up, you are one day closer to your healing and one more day closer to the blessings God has for you.

Have faith!! Tomorrow will be better. Some days may not, but add them up!!

Behind the scene

Based on a true story

Son: Where is God and why can’t I sense him?

Father: God is always with you and working behind the scene even if you don’t sense him.

Son: What do you mean by working behind the scene?

Father: Son, did you eat during school’s break time on Tuesday and did you get any scolding by your teacher for not bringing your attire?

Son: No, I ate and I brought my attire. Everything was OK.

Father: Are you aware that on Monday night, you forgot to pack the money in the wallet and the attire into your bag? After you slept, dad checked your bag and pack it for you. Sometimes when everything in life seems normal we think that God is not there. But the truth is, He is always working behind the scene to protect us and to help us to normalise things. So when things look OK, it does not mean God or His goodness is not there. God is simply working quietly behind the scene.

When you feel angry, forgive

Say this out loud, “When I feel MAD, God gives me power to forgive!”

That feeling of anger, being mad is a real and valid feeling. But that’s not you. That’s the feeling. Mad feelings often quickly turn into sinful choices. Mad feelings are kind of like fire. We want people to know how wrong the other person was so we keep throwing more wood or fuel on the fire to keep it going by thinking about it and telling people about it and holding onto the mad feelings. But we are the one who will get burned by staying that close to that fire.

The only way to stop feeling mad is to forgive. Forgiveness is really hard sometimes—especially when the person doesn’t deserve it and isn’t sorry.

But God has the power to forgive even the worst people that have ever lived, and He can give that power to us when we ask.
