destiny.jpgbutterfly-effect-lifechoices_346183847The future we desire and want has yet to be shaped.As we often forget the power we possess in our everyday decisions that we make to shape our destiny. The decision we make will create the life we are living currently, so it becomes necessary for us to find out the meaningful answers to crucial questions for being able to make a wise decision. Decision-making requires an open approach that encompasses all aspects, an attitude that looks at every perspective and a broad vision that considers every possibility no matter how big or small it is. In short, there are neither shortcuts nor easy formulas for ethical decision-making

So what does decision-making means? When we have to do something, but we are not sure of how, and what to do, we stand at the crossroads of decision-making. The key to making a wise decision is the ability to select the right course of action and ask the right questions. Once we grow into adulthood everything in your life, business and personal exist so when it becomes a matter of our own lives; we need to gather up the courage to take decisions on our own.

When we walk on the straight path, it is possible to choice the best decision for us. However, if we place the decision-making process in the hands of others it becomes the outcome of a bad decision. Moreover, why put the right of decision-making in the hand of others, after all, for how long can we ask others to guide us through the right decision? Eventually, we have to learn to make decisions by our own selves as life is too long, and we cannot depend on others.

When it becomes a matter of our own lives, we need to gather up the courage to take decisions on our own. However, the big question is how do we shape a life, so it becomes alive and real for us. There are many ways we can shape our destiny, but our first step is to start by knowing what we want from life. Then visualize the life you want and spend much time developing your life’s path.

What to do when the path gets bumpy to make sure you use your power of choices wisely

Throughout our everyday lives, we are faced with countless choices and those choosing is shaped by the choices we make besides there may be times when we make choices that cause our life’s path to be like a series of hills. When we choose or when we are not sure if we want hills, valleys or the straight path the passageway becomes confusing, unbalance, and very bumpy. After making a decision like these, we should stop and examine the choices we made and identified new opportunities that will bring us back to the original path.

People often spend lots of time creating the picture-perfect path for themselves. However, they fail to remember three things. There is no such thing as a perfect path, the road we are creating can become bumpy and very uncomfortable if we make the wrong decision along the way. Third and most important remember you ultimately make the final choice regarding your values and how you balance your life’s path.

Words of Encouragement to anyone going through Life’s challenges and need a lift

encourageChallenges and difficulties are a part of life and words of encouragement can often help you get out of your rut. If anyone else have any additional words of encouragement, they can post with what already post, please post below. If you need to talk to someone and no one available to listen feel free to post your challenges below and I will reply to help pull you out of your rude. Three words of encouragement quotes are below, and an uplifting song

“You must make a decision that you are going to move on. It won’t happen automatically. You will have to rise up and say, ‘I don’t care how hard this is, I don’t care how disappointed I am, I’m not going to let this get the best of me. I’m moving on with my life.” – Joel Osteen

Tragedies do happen. We can discover the reason, blame others, imagine how different our lives would be had they not occurred. But none of that is important: they did occur, and so be it. From there onward we must put aside the fear that they awoke in us and begin to rebuild.” – Paulo Coelho
You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.” ― Maya Angelou

Who am I to judge another, when I walk imperfectly?

Who am I to judge anotherIf we want to live free from distraction and be able to enjoy a more peaceful life, then we need to refrain from judging others. Furthermore, each and every one of us should stop gossip and criticism because whenever someone – anyone – criticize they are making a judgment that involves others that will make them feel ashamed, or guilty because of being judged. We should not attempt to judge other’s faults while trying to conceal our own faults. President Monson said, “Refrain from judging others. … Gossip or criticism, are certainly akin to judgment.”

Everyone wants to feel loved, accepted, and to be treated with respect. No one deserves to feel bad about themselves or feel inferior to others. People want to be valued and have a feeling of usefulness. When we make a judgment against other, we give them a sense of dissatisfaction that is not supportive. The admonition “Judge not” are often used to speak up against wrong doing and People often use Jesus’ words “Judge not”, but they do not always fully consider what He is saying about judging. Jesus’ teachings still have the same balanced today that was meant thousands of years ago.

I have studied the passages from the King James Version (KJV) to interpret and to get a full understanding of the bible on the topic ‘Who Am I to Judge’ to get a more powerful idea of Jesus’ words “Passing Judgment.” The Bible will give us a proper understanding of the teachings, sharing Jesus’ commands regarding judgment using convincing Bible verses related to the phrase ‘Who Am I to Judge.’ We will be discussing the following: Should we judge others, why are we to judge, what guidance Jesus gave us in judging others, and why do we judge others.

Should we judge others? The Bible has commanded us, “Do not judge” Read:(Matthew 7:1). Judge not, that ye be not judged. However, did it really mean we should never judge others? Let’s take a look at several Scriptures that will shed light on whether we should judge others. The Bible will give us a proper understanding of the teachings using some convincing Bible verses related to the phrase ‘Who Am I to Judge.’ Some scriptures command us not to judge while others teach us how we should judge.

Read: Romans 14:4 “Who art thou that judgest another man’s servant? To his own master, he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be Holden up: for God can make him stand”. It is clear through this scripture that Paul taught Christians in Rome not to judge one another. Now let us compare this with 1 Corinthians 5:12-13 “For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? Do not ye judge them that are within? However, them that are without God judgeth. Therefore, put away from among yourselves that wicked person”. In these scriptures, Paul taught that it was all right to judge people who are unbelievers and to gently restore those who go astray.

Now to answer the question: Did the Bible really mean we should never judge others? – I would like to begin by saying issues become involved whenever someone judge another. Also, it is most likely that Christians must never judge others because if we wrongfully judge another, the way the Pharisees did, Jesus would be displeased. We must remember that if we hypocritically judge others as though we are beyond judgment like the Pharisees did on the Judgment day; we would be judged with the same severity.

To love is nothing…to be loved is something…to love and be loved in return is everything!

To love and be loveDid you know what it takes to makes a man feel a strong connection with a woman – is also the kind of relationship that makes him fall in love with her? Also, it is so easy to get lost on the way to a relationship you desire. For that reason, it is important to learn the right way to connect truly with a man in such a way that he can relate and feels compelled to devote himself to you. Every woman or man at one time or another has taken the wrong road in an attempts to get close to the person they love. I’ve surprised to learn there are many ways to manipulate love. However, to hear the main way to manipulate love are through counterfeits, which is when a female impress a man and make him enjoy her company in a way to get him to meet her needs. However, to love is nothing…to be loved is something…to love and be loved in return is everything.

Nonetheless, this type of relationship never quite gets off the ground, because one person has taken the wrong road to the path of love. When a person cannot purely love another like they need to be loved because they more value theirs needs it not always done consciously, it comes from their own brokenness. If a woman or man want to discover finally how to create the kind of loving relationship that will lead to a husband or wife, it starts with taking the right road to the path of love. That means he or she has to get off the wrong path which begins with changing of the mind, your way of thinking. Come to know with any relationship a person will not love another for what they can do for them; they have chosen to love the other freely because that whom they want to love and share their life with. Nonetheless, to love is nothing…to be loved is something…to love and be loved in return is everything.

Mystery Unraveled; a Honeymoon that Never Was!

mauritius-islandPeople usually say that being newlyweds is very enjoying and the honeymoon that comes into the picture is a sweet and memorable experience of a lifetime. Newlyweds often look forward to their honeymoon since it would be the time for them to experience the highest level of affection. The couple, Patsy, and Henry thought that a honeymoon trip in Mauritius was one of the best things they could ever experience in their life. This is something they had both been planning for a long time. Henry was a sailor by passion and he always loved exploring new places. His last voyage before their grand wedding was to prepare for their dream honeymoon destination. This was a year before their wedding. Henry wanted to find the best tourist spots they would visit during their honeymoon trip. However, everything did not happen according to plan. Imagine how it would have felt for your loved one to suddenly disappear in spite of all the preparations and plans. I can literally feel the pain and hopelessness that will always be over your head like a dark cloud. This is a story of a young couple who were about to get married, Henry and Patsy. Getting married is something they had both been looking forward to, and their dream honeymoon destination was Mauritius. Just a year before their grand wedding, Henry decided to sail forth to the beautiful island of Mauritius perhaps to make preparations for their dream honeymoon trip to the island. However, until the present, Patsy, despite all hopelessness, is still waiting to see and be with her loved one, Henry. Where could Henry be? No news or phone calls. The search for Henry by the government resulted in no information regarding his whereabouts or condition, and Patsy is heavily depressed. Is there any end in sight to this mystery? Read on.

The five years that has passed without Henry has been excruciatingly painful and unacceptable to Pasty. Every day, she wakes up to pray and seeks solace from close friends, families, and relatives, but no news has ever informed her regarding the whereabouts of Henry. Pasty and Henry had been planning their marriage since their college days. They both knew; nothing in this world would make them feel so complete, happy and satisfied in achieving their goals together. For Patsy, it has been lonely and endless moments of pain but she still waited each new day to see here love again. Agony and intolerability have been the result of each passing day since the day Henry sailed forth to Mauritius. The thought of Henry would always remind her of the sweet memories they had spent together and especially during their college days. “I don’t know where to start from but the search for my husband has been a painful experience and especially now that, his son and only kid John is old enough to start going to school stating Patsy. On that fateful day when Henry left for Mauritius they made love, “I am always scared, I spend my days crying, hoping and wishing to see him again “narrates Patsy.” The only thing I don’t want to think is the possibility of never seeing him again “she asserts.

Henry and Patsy started dating back in college. According to many, they were naturally meant for each other. They complemented each other in many ways, and everyone said they were destined to get married and live a happy life together. To date, Patsy has not yet discovered the mystery in the disappearance of her love and which aches her heart every single day. “It has been five years since I bid him goodbye with a hug, hoping he would return soon for our wedding,” says Patsy amid sobs. This is probably the worst experience anyone deeply in love can go through. They had been talking on the phone until the time Henry wished her goodnight. That was the last word she ever heard from her man. She actually wished to settle down and have beautiful children together, but life can be very cruel and ruin a beautiful dream that was blossoming into a full flare of happiness and love.

There have been mind-boggling stories of mysterious disappearances of planes, ships, sailors, and even divers with no trace of their whereabouts. While some have been found kidnaped or killed, however, for Patsy, it has been years of agony and a story that still doesn’t have an ending. The government had deployed its navy to search for the lost citizen in the raging waters of the Indian Ocean but with no trace. He never drowned in the vast waters of the Ocean. His boat was found docked along the Beach of Mauritius Island, and this finding has complicated the search for Henry. This sounded more perplexing than fiction and perhaps a complicated situation with no concrete approach. According to the authorities, families, friend and relatives, Henry anchored safely on the coastline of Mauritius but what remains a mystery is his whereabouts for over five years with no trace. Records indicate that he had checked into one of the hotels on the day of his arrival but what had happened after that? No one knows where he could have gone the following day when he woke up. He loved sailing and fishing a lot. Being a sailor means always being on the go too far lands and islands. It is always about discovering new places. While the search for a missing sailor continues, for Patsy, it is a wait and watch the scenario. Patsy believes that Henry is still in the woods of the Mauritius, or perhaps towards the south where he had been stuck in a place with no network to enable him to communicate to the people back home. It is hard to guess especially because sailors love to do many things, like fishing. Discovery is always a top priority, and just like the ones who sailed many centuries ago and came back with the news of new finds and artifacts.

Back home, Henry had sired a baby boy whom Patsy named John. Five years is a long time, and John has reached the age of attending kindergarten. He began asking his mom about the whereabouts of his dad. It is probably one of the most difficult things to explain and especially to a boy of John’s age. At the age of five to ten, children tend to be curious and inquisitive. This is something Patsy finds difficult to cope with and sometimes get furious about. The only thing she tells John is that his father has gone on a long journey and would soon be back. Sometimes it forces her to hide herself in agony as the wait is too agonizing, and she doesn’t want her only child to know about it. The memories of Henry keep lingering in Patsy’s mind and the presence of a son they have together reminded her so much of her loved one.

Patsy expected that Henry would be away for only four months. However, it took longer and Patsy began to worry. He had not sent her an email, and the only phone call they had was on the fateful day Henry left. In the fifth month, Patsy, could not bear it anymore. There was no news about Henry. The news about Henry being gone went viral. A search was organized with the assistance of the government. While some claimed he could have probably never sailed, others said he crossed over to Mauritius. Every day for about one year, print and broadcast media ran the story and pictures of Henry. They even published the sufferings of the lonely wife waiting for him. It was the talk of the town. It was a tense year for both the families of Henry’s and of Patsy’s. Hopes of ever finding Henry dwindled among many, including the government until the search was closed after one and a half years. The press interviewed Patsy, and each media house, both broadcast and print, had their own account, analysis, and approach of the story.
