Life Is Filled With Endless Hope


Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be homeless, hungry, addicted or desperately poor? How often do you see a friend in distress or crisis, but feel helpless to really make a difference? Whether it’s encouraging a jobless friend, lifting the spirits of someone trapped in depression, leaving an anonymous gift for a grieving mother, hosting a starting-over shower for a divorced friend, or playing one small part in long-term support for a family in deep crisis, daily opportunities to make a difference in hurting lives are limitless for a Hope lifter.

Sometimes we go through what we go through, to help others go through what we went through. Man can count on no one but himself; he is alone, abandoned on earth in the midst of his infinite responsibilities, without help, with no other aim than the one he sets himself, with no other destiny than the one he forges for himself on this earth. There is no greater state of hopelessness than of man without God, because God is the source of life. Life without God is hopeless. But life with God is an endless hope. God knows our troubles, but He wants us to come to Him and ask for His help and relief. He wants us to recognize the true source of help and our only real hope.

The only hope that has substance is found in the word of God. The word of God does not promise a charmed life filled with constant blessings, but it gives solid assurance that life is worth living, that problems are worth enduring, that the risks of life are worth taking. The word of God provides hope that there is more to life than what we can see—the invisible world is even more real than the world we see. Even the sun will eventually fade away, but spiritual realities will not. Knowing how God has worked with people in the past and His promises for the future can help us grow to trust and rely on Him.

Hope can be a powerful force. Maybe there’s no actual magic in it, but when you know what you hope for most and hold it like a light within you, you can make things happen, almost like magic because what’s worse than knowing you want something, besides knowing you can never have it? The sky is always beautiful. Even when it’s dark or rainy or cloudy, it’s still beautiful to look at. It’s my favourite thing because I know if I ever get lost or lonely or scared, I just have to look up and it’ll be there no matter what…and I know it’ll always be beautiful.When things go wrong, don’t go with them.

To develop emotional and erotic intelligence we need to practice enlarging our inner passion at every moment. It doesn’t matter what’s going on in our world, or even how we feel about ourselves in the moment. In fact, the best time to accomplishing something may be when we least feel like trying, because the hopeless part of ourselves most needs the light. Always remember that even in the grave, all is not lost so don’t worry. Cast your anxieties upon the Lord!

Money Has Never Made A Man Happy Yet


Money has never made man happy, nor will it, there is nothing in its nature to produce happiness. The more of it one has the more one wants.

Having dollars and coins in your hands alone does not make you smile; Believe it or not money is not an inherently bad thing. Just as love isn’t really a complicated thing until people get involved with it, so is money. The desire for material things is understandable, and is actually good for us. The worshiping of material things like money, on the other hand, is where the problems arise. When we put our desires for money over everything in our lives we start to live a perverse way of life, whether we choose to believe it or not, and those who do this eventually realize that having all the money in the world can not bring them true happiness.

If you say that money is the most important thing, you’ll spend your life completely wasting your time: You’ll be doing things you don’t like doing in order to go on living, that is, in order to go on doing things you don’t like doing , which is stupid! To be blessed is to be able to do for yourself and for others at any given time. When a person is really rich not only do they have a substantial amount of money, but they also have the ability to bless anyone that they may want to at any given time. How blessed are you today, and how do you bless those who need your blessings? don’t equate levels of wealth to levels of happiness. Always remember that money is only a tool. It will take you wherever you wish, but it will not replace you as the driver and a good reputation is more valuable than money.

Keep The Picture, They Never Change


They say a picture is worth a thousand words. But I wonder, what else do “they” say? because the best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do.

They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself. As we grow older, some of us may notice that people that we thought would be in our lives forever aren’t there anymore, and as different newcomers enter into our lives the people that we once knew don’t seem to be around. When we progress in life some people will progress with us and help us grow by helping to encourage and inspire us, while others head in other directions with no correlation of the direction that we are heading into.

Sometimes you just have to turn the page to realize there’s more to your book of life than the page you’re stuck on. Stop being afraid to move on. Close this chapter of hurt, and never re-read it. It’s time to get what your life deserves, and move on from the things that don’t deserve you. Don’t try to fix what’s been broken in your past, let your future create something better. Don’t let past relationships and old mistakes ruin your future. Don’t let someone or something that didn’t make it in your life continue to hurt you. If you do, you’re still giving a portion of your life to something that no longer exists – it’s like letting your happiness slip into a black hole. Learn the lesson, release the pain, and move on. Scars remind us of where we have been, not where we are headed.

People need to be made more aware of the need to work at learning how to live because life is so quick and sometimes it goes away too quickly. Some people are meant to be in our lives forever, and some are meant to be in our lives for a few years, while others may be only be there for a few months. Don’t stress over the people that have come and gone from your life, just remember the good times that you shared with them, and use what you learned from dealing with them to help you progress towards your dreams and aspirations because to make a difference in someone’s life you don’t have to be wise, rich or beautiful…you just have to be there when they need you.

Fully Rely On God‎


I am strong because I’ve been weak. I am fearless because I’ve been afraid. I am wise because I’ve been foolish. You are trying to move ahead and yet are filled with regret for what might have been or could have been. You cannot proceed with precision of purpose and clarity of vision until you turn around and leave those things behind that belong in the past. You can do nothing to change what was. But, you can move ahead by divine direction if you will look to God and seek His guidance and direction.

It has been said often when someone faces a crisis, “God never gives us more than we can handle.” But this phrase has been misunderstood. We can mistakenly think that it is by our strength that we will get through a problem or trial but that isn’t always true. The only reason that you are where you are today is because of your development over time. It is important not to live in the past but we must also be aware that our experiences are part of who we are, and have helped to mold us, shape us, and grow us. We are what we create. Inside of every single one of us lives an artist dying to come out and paint the world in whatever way he or she sees fit.
In truth, God frequently allows us to be in situations that are too much for us and threaten to overwhelm our strength. It is in those moments that we can see God’s strength not ours. We will face things that we cannot handle. The world is full of those “trial of life” that are overwhelming. In fact if we are honest with ourselves and our sinful condition we will see that we really can’t handle any of it. But God can!

Living free is about being yourself with such vigor that you remind other people that they really are cool enough to live their own lives as themselves. Today is a new day, a new day for you accomplish new things and to soar to new heights. Be strong, but continue to sharpen your strength. Be fearless, but continue to take new risks, and seek new opportunities in the presence of fear and doubt. Be wise, and continue to strengthen your mind, seek out knowledge with the presence of mind to know that you must keep learning in every way that you can so that you will not only be able to reach the goals you have set for yourself now, but to also be able to have more vision to create and reach new goals in your future. Sometimes, our troubles and pains can stake us down, bring us to the ground, so that we can say we are weak and rely on God who is strong.

In All Things There Is Healing


Healing is a matter of time, but it is sometimes also a matter of opportunity. In all things there is healing. Broken hearts, broken lives, there is no way around them. But you don’t have to live broken. Maybe broken is all you’ve ever known, but there is healing. You just have to ask for it. You just have to let the maker of your life clean up your wounds and bring you back to life.

When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all of your thoughts break their bonds, your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction and you find yourself in a new great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.
Sometimes after we experience painful situations in life, we have to come to realize that getting past them in our minds completely will just take some time. In this time one thing that is very helpful to allow us to cope and to grieve with the pain of losing someone or something in our lives that we expected to be there forever is that if we work on ourselves, and improve spiritually, emotionally, and physically, we will help ourselves to realize that we are made better because of what we have been through, and that life doesn’t stop just because certain circumstances have made their way into our lives.

Getting over losing something that was very important to us, is a very challenging time for anyone, pain is never easy to cope with, but never let these times break you, be strengthened by what you have lost, and allow yourself to gain from these experiences. Healing takes courage, and we all have courage, even if we have to dig a little to find it.

Your Heart Lies Where Your Mind Wanders


I believe that a simple and unassuming manner of life is best for everyone, best both for the body and the mind. If you want to know where your heart is, look where your mind wanders.

In order for us to truly know where our heart is, we need to sometimes look to what we often think about in our daydreams, and what we dream about at night. I believe that it’s crucial for us to be able to tune into and appreciate the present moment, I love how occasional daydreaming allows us to become more aware of the things we truly love, and, therefore, teaches us a whole lot about ourselves.  Our minds tend to wander when we are doing things that don’t evoke enough interest within us to sustain our attention, serving as a sign that our hearts are simply somewhere else.  Sometimes in order for us to find our passion we must look into the thing that our mind always has us thinking about. If you notice that your mind wanders about one specific thing constantly it may be because at your hearts level you know that this thing is something you should be putting your heart into.

Try letting go of whatever is holding you back from pursuing whatever this is and try giving it your all. Don’t go at it half-heartedly and give it a weak attempt expecting to fail. Put your whole heart into it, and give it your all, expecting the best result, and if failure is the end result, you can be satisfied in knowing that you tried your best at something that you just went out on a limb on, this is a feat that half of mankind doesn’t have the courage to even attempt to do. So, regardless of where your mind wanders, stop and consider the significance behind your thoughts, tune into what you truly love, and follow your heart!

Grades Don’t Measure Intelligence And Age Doesn’t Define Maturity


What makes Superman a hero is not that he has power, but that he has the wisdom and the maturity to use the power wisely. Maturity is not measured by age. It’s an attitude built by experience.

Maturity is achieved when a person postpones immediate pleasures for long-term values. When we conquer maturity we are not just passing and age milestone, because quite in fact our age doesn’t determine our maturity. Maturity is about being able to understand what to do in certain situations, and despite your age, we can become more mature every single day of our lives.

There are no great limits to growth because there are no limits of human intelligence, imagination, and wonder. Sure maturing out of our childhood into adulthood is a major process in our life, and we learn things that we will use for the rest of our lives such as manners, correct etiquette, job skills, and a basic education, but maturing into our real selves is a process that takes a life time.

As we grow older we should always seek the knowledge it takes to become a better person as each day passes on. Being mature requires us to seek wisdom, and not only be knowledgeable but we should also be able to apply whatever knowledge we gain to our everyday lives. Your intelligence is measured by those around you; if you spend your days with idiots you seal your own fate because you don’t need to know all the answers. No one is smart enough to ask you all the questions.
