When you feel like those around you don’t want you around, and you feel rejected by the world. Always remind yourself you are not really alone, because God loves you!

God loves you and can help feel part of this world, His world, again.

Remember God loves you!

Just ask the animals, and they will teach you. Ask the birds of the sky, and they will tell you. Speak to the earth, and it will instruct you. Let the fish in the sea speak to you. For they all know that my disaster has come from the hand of the LordFor the life of every living thing is in his hand, and the breath of every human being. ~ Job 12:7-10 (NLT)

God created all the beautiful things around us.

Man created all the horror around us.

I pray today that we will each do our best to remind man of God’s love for them, so that our fellow men and women will look after, not just the world around them but, one another.

At work we have managers or team leaders who are there to guide, direct and teach us.

How about in your life as a whole? Do you know who is leading you?

God is my Lord, and my leader. I hope He is your leader too.

The most meaningful presents we receive might not come wrapped in shiny paper or frilly ribbons. They are often the ones that lift your spirit, brighten your day or trigger your imagination.

I’ve been curious what others consider to be their ‘best gift’ so have been looking at other people’s stories about their ‘best gifts’, so here’s one I want to share with you.

There was a phase in my life when I was going through a rough time (Professionally ). Every now and then I use to get positive quotes stuck on my desk by my Friends. 🙂 But then I was going for a month vacation. So, while parting, A Friend of mine gifted this to me. Happy Box!! 🙂  It’s a box that contains so many positive quotes/moments. It’s been 5 months, whenever I am feeling low I just open the box and take a slip out of it. And yes, may be it’s not solving my problem but Yes , I always end up with a smile on my face and positive attitude to solve the problem. 🙂

Sometimes a gift may be a gift that just keeps on giving, even many months and years after it was initially given, simply because it brings beautiful happy memories to our mind. So cherish those gifts, and cherish those moments in your live, they are both the best gifts your can ever receive.

All my life…that’s a lot of minutes and hours!

I wonder, have I made the most of every single minute and hour that I’ve already had on this earth? My honest answer is ‘No’, and I suspect many would also say they haven’t made the most of their time here so far.

Today I want to make a new promise – I want to acknowledge that God walks by my side, though every day. And so I want to promise that I will do all I can to live my life as God wants me to, making the most of every minute and every hour that I have available to me.

Do you celebrate your relationships?

Do you celebrate your relationships with God?

So if God really is your all, remember to celebrate God’s love, and thank God for loving you unconditionally.

Many people these days wear some device which captures, amongst other things, how many steps they take each day. Not only that, but many who wear these devices seems to have become obsessed about the number of steps they take each day – They make a habit out of constantly checking their total steps for the day, telling others how many steps they’ve taken, and even feeling it necessary to tell everyone each time they plan to walk more than just a few steps.

I wear a device which counts amongst other things, my steps, but I wear it just so I can get an idea how much I’ve walked. I don’t get obsessed with achieving a particular number of steps each day, as I know I do as much as I can each day, and that’s good enough for me.

For those of you who are counting your steps and trying to achieve specific goals each day, good luck, but don’t do more than your body tells you you can do. Do your best, that’s all any of us can do.

 

When you talk, are your words full of kindness, consideration and encouragement, or are they harsh, rude or even abusive?

Personally, I always think there’s nothing worse than hearing someone use abusive words towards someone else. There’s no need for that, and ultimately what does it achieve other than hurt and upset to the person the words are directed towards.

Ephesians 4:29 NLT
Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.

So watch what you say, because ultimately I’m sure we all want to be encouragers.

Other than yourself, is there anyone else who knows every single things about you?

Do you have anyone in your life who knows every bad thing you’ve ever done, big or small?

I would suspect, like me that your answer is that no-one knows everything about you. But that’s where we’re wrong – Jesus knows everything about each and every one of us; He knows every good thought and every good deed; He also knows every bad things we’ve ever said, thought or done that we shouldn’t have.

There really is no escape, because He knows everything about us!

If everyone we knew knew everything about you, do you think they would still want to be your friend, or even know you?

Once again, Jesus comes out top in this question, as even though He knows everything about us, He still loves us more than anyone else could possibly love us. How amazing is that!

 

We’re told not to judge a book by its cover, so why do people not realise the same advice applies to people too?

We shouldn’t make judgements about who or what some is by how they look. We also shouldn’t assume we know how someone is feeling, as we have no idea how they really feel or indeed, what they may be going through.

Some ‘put on’ a public face so others don’t ‘see’ how they really feel. But even they will still have days when they find ‘putting on a public face’ is too difficult. Those are the days when everyone will really know they are having a bad day!
