Today is Thanksgiving and my last day of thankfulness. What am I thankful for today? Each and everyone of you. Thank you for reading my blog. Thank you for following me. Thank you for commenting. Thank you for engaging me. Thank you for friendships that have developed and questions answered. I wish each and everyone […]
Every now and then I would come across people who are homeless and suffering, and it would break my heart. Then I would wish silently for the power to change their lives and ask God to touch the hearts of the more fortunate people to extend a helping hand to those in need.
I just don’t know what life has in store for me. I have seen people who had everything lost it all in a blink of an eye. And the sadness of it all is that the people whom they thought would stand by their sides turned their backs on them.
So when the world forget about them, what are they suppose to do? When all hope is lost, who can they turn to? Continue reading Don’t Forget About The Homeless
“When I think of the goodness of Jesus and what he has done for me, my heart cries out hallelujah, thank God for his saving grace…”
When I was a child I used to sing this song quite often at Sunday school. But did I really understood what it meant? Not at all! I just sang because the rhythm was sweet, and I could get to dance.
Today, I was singing this song and realized that I was singing it with a different attitude and a more graceful dance. Today, I was singing and dancing with real meaning and deep appreciation. Appreciation for the beauty of his earth, and appreciation for having friends like you.
You see, when I am on the down low and darkness surrounds me he always reminds me of who he is by sending me sunshine to light up my heart and friends to lift up my spirit with words of inspiration and kindness.
Furthermore, when my heart is overflowing with sadness he sends me his love in more ways than one. Yes indeed, God is good, and his loving kindness is extended to everyone on this earth because his love is not partial.
Friends let us be reminded that we are surrounded by the goodness of God everywhere we turn so let us open our eyes and look, then praise him for it!
Someone was looking at me…
The street was very busy but she saw me. I didn’t see her. As a matter of fact I saw no-one because my mind was too busy re-calculating the cost of the items I purchased in the supermarket. I was wondering where my money went so quickly.
So when I bumped into her I was so frightened. I quickly said sorry and stepped out of her way. But she gently took my right hand and shifted me to the side of the road. I didn’t resist her because she was very old and I didn’t want to be rude so I kept quiet. Then she used the tip of her finger to lift my chin so that our eyes were focused on each other.
Then she said in a shaky voice,”Please I’m begging you….” I didn’t allow her to finish I immediately said, “oh..” and started opening my purse. She quickly shook her head and said, “No, my child…no money. I am just begging you please to smile, whatever just happened, God still loves you, he is in control.”
I was touched.
My message to you…
So this is my message to you too. God still loves you!
You see, yesterday I had no idea that my facial expression after leaving the supermarket was so ugly. I allowed the system of things to stole my smile. But thanks be to God, a woman of love saw it and made me aware.
The truth is that we just cannot conceal how we feel sometimes no matter how we try because our thoughts will reflect on our faces, whether they be good or bad.
That is why we have to train our minds to think good at all times. Sometimes it’s really hard but we have to try if we want to be approachable and have a pleasing personality.
Yes, God is in control of everything and he still loves us no matter the circumstances. So when we make it a point of duty to keep focus on his love we will be more able to face our problems and the world with a smile.
To all my American friends who follow my blog please don’t let the outcome of the election take away your smile because at the end of the day, no matter who wins life still goes on. I wish you all the best on this day.
To all my other followers and potential followers please watch your thoughts, guard them and keep on smiling through thick and thin.
Have a great day…God is in control!
