God I come lifting up all those I love, care about, all those who love and care about me, the writer of this prayer, and myself to you. I ask in Jesus’ name that you will bless each of us with what we stand in need of. Supply all our need according to your riches and glory. Let us lack for nothing. Cause us to walk in love, power, and a sound mind. Bless us with much joy, peace, protection, strength, wisdom, knowledge, and understanding in Christ Jesus.
God do not let life cause us to become overwhelmed. Make us to lie down in green pastures. Lead us beside the still waters. Calm our mind, body, soul, and spirit. Cause us to rest in you. Restore our soul. Lead and guide us in the path of your righteousness for your name sake. Protect us as we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, let us fear no evil. Let us feel your presence at all times comforting us and letting us know that everything is going to be alright. Prepare a table before us in the presence of our enemies. Anoint our heads with oil. Bless us Lord Jesus abundantly. Let our cups run over with the blessings of the Lord. Cause us to prosper and be in excellent health. Let goodness and mercy go before us and follow us all the days of our lives. Cause us to dwell in the House of the Lord forever. Thank You, Thank You. Thank You Lord Jesus. Amen!

God listen to me when I’m losing it. Hug me when I’m hurting. Sit with me in silence when I’m sad. I don’t want someone who is looking to mold me or repair the damage done. I want someone to love me for who I am even at my lowest…
Do you find yourself questioning your decisions on different occasions – especially when it comes to life’s important decisions?
Do you sometimes wonder why am I changing my mind when I know that I am capable of making my own decisions?
Do you find yourself feeling ‘I am sure’ in one moment and in the very next moment you find yourself wondering ‘am I really sure’?
Do you find yourself having a conversation with yourself as if you are speaking with another person?
Do you sometimes feel thrilled to wake up one morning and the next morning hate to get out of your bed?
Do you start an important task that normally takes you ten to fifteen minutes to finish, but now your find it hard to complete or you keep on wondering whether I am doing this correctly?
Do you allow petty things or selfish people to annoy you when normally you are calm and compassionate?
Do you find yourself doing or sharing things with others that are normally unlike you?
Do you find yourself smiling during the day for big reasons just to want to frown a little later the very same day without any reason?
Do you find hurting yourself most of the time thinking of miserable pasts when you should have come out of it by now and enjoy the life to its fullest?
Do you find yourself using unnecessary energy to try to fight battles not worth fighting when normally you know how to pick and choose?
Happy are they who take life day by day, complain very little, and are thankful for the little things in life.
“One of the main reasons that we lose our enthusiasm in life is because we become ungrateful..we let what was once a miracle become common to us. We get so accustomed to his goodness it becomes a routine..”

Experience all the dualities.

because the more experience you have,

“I am sure it is everyone’s experience, as it has been mine, that any discovery we make about ourselves or the meaning of life is never, like a scientific discovery, a coming upon something entirely new and unsuspected; it is rather, the coming to conscious recognition of something, which we really knew all the time but, because we were unwilling to formulate it correctly, we did not hitherto know we knew.”
― W.H. Auden, Markings
The greatest miracle of all is for God to look at me and say I choose you. You are beautiful
To the people who love you, you are beautiful already. This is not because they’re blind to your shortcomings, but, because they so clearly see your soul. Your shortcomings then dim by comparison. The people who care about you are willing to let you be imperfect and beautiful, too.
Learn from yesterday, live for today plant seeds for tomorrow, live a life worth living accept all that is given to you
God always has something for you, a key for every problem, they’re still a light for every shadow, a relief for every sorrow & a plan for every tomorrow. Accept all that is given to you with an open mind. Every gift, whether it warmed your spirit or brought you disappointment is a blessing. Learn from yesterday, live for today, plant seeds for tomorrow, live a life worth living. The philosophy of life is to make the most of it, enjoy the happy moments, and challenge the challenges thrown at you. Anyone can give up, it’s the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else wouldn’t understand if you fell apart, because of what has gone on in your life that’s true strength. See life in a positive way through any kind of condition Life may throw your way.
Today’s Message – Surround yourself with dreamers, doers, believers, love & thinkers. This will help bring out your greatness!
Look at the people who you surround yourself with. Who your friends are and who they are because they are a reflection of you. Your experiences in life define who you are, and everything else that makes you, you; shapes you into the person you are meant to be. Self-discovery can last a lifetime because we are continually growing and changing as human beings. You are the person you’ve become today for a reason. So, ask yourself why. What brought you to the person you are now? Paint yourself a picture of who you once were, and who you now are to see how much you’ve changed, and, maybe, you’ll discover something valuable to who you truly are.
