Today’s Food for Thought (September 8, 2017)

Posted on Updated on

In any given moment we have two options: to step forward into growth or to step back into safety.

Soon, you’ll write a new story and the script is nothing like your past. It will be a story of survival – surviving the hurt and forgetting the reason you cried and what brought the pain. It will be a story of realization – that the secret to being free is letting things unfold in their own ways and time. That all changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy. It will be a beautiful story of hope – the story of God. For He alone knows that the happiness He has for you requires taking a different path in your journey to your growth. He alone knows what you must endure to form His story in you.

Don’t be a character in the story of your life. Be the AUTHOR. Don’t live in the past; that’s what pulls you back. Live in the present that’s what keeps you going. Enjoy little things in life, for one day you may look back and realize they were big things. In life, we do not know the value of our moments until they have become a memory. Life is a kind of game. Once you realize this, you can do a lot of things, for the sake of learning and growth without being encumbered by the weight of negativity. Follow your passion, be prepared to work hard and sacrifice, and above all, don’t let anyone limit your dreams. Walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue.

“The best view comes after the hardest climb.” (Praradomo)

You’ve experienced the depth of cold from painful emotions. You’ve shivered in their grip. But within you is an invincible summer that will eventually bring those painful emotions out of the cold darkness and into the heat of your light that shines bright and melts away pains’ grip on you. The turning point comes at the moment of some crisis, through which you are introduced to your ‘other self.’ Hold on. Overcome. Trust God when He says. ‘Do not go around, over, or under the crisis in your life. Go through it and I’ll be with you.

Faith teaches us to believe no matter what situation we’re having right now. Hold on, be strong, don’t give up. God works in ways we cannot see. The heart that has a firm faith is not frightened by obstacles because it knows well that God’s love does not abandon those who trust in Him. Crises refine life. In them you discover what you are capable of. Confidence comes not from always being right but from not fearing to be wrong. Great works are performed, not by strength, but perseverance. Real peace cannot be found outside ourselves but within and with God.

“One of the hardest decisions you’ll ever have to face in life is choosing whether to walk away or try harder.” – Zaid K. Abdelnour (Praradomo)

You’ll face many crossroads in your life regardless of your education, title, or how much money you have. It happens to all. A crossroad is your internal watchdog telling you that something needs change onward to your next level. Whether rocky, curving, straight or smooth, it’s when you run and intersect with other roads that defines your road. It’s when road meets road that God wants you to have faith that in whichever road you choose to tread, He walks with you. Like the morning star, He will guide you along your way.

Life is a constant battle for survival. As we grow older, the rules change on daily basis. Our mission is not to escape, but to survive; not to deal with triumph, but to deal with failure; not to run away from fear but to master it. It takes courage to keep on fighting. So, if you feel like the rules have shifted one step higher, deal them with greater faith and never to surrender. All things in life are temporary. If they are going well, enjoy. They won’t last forever. If they go wrong, don’t worry, they can’t last long either. Never regret the choice you’ve made in life, for life isn’t perfect at all. Failures teach us to be patient and strong while moving on.

“A life isn’t significant except for its impact on other lives.” – Jackie Robinson (Praradomo)

Nothing is worth spending a lifetime doing things that will never satisfy your soul. Wealth, fame, accolades, are always never enough, always leave one wanting for more. Seek significance – it counts and outlasts. Significance is when you positively change the life of another and that person changes the life of another, who impacts the life of another, who influences another. For no matter your absence, that significance will still be yours. And when you count on God and include Him in your life, you will have enough, you will not go wanting. He counts a lot.

Life is not about meeting people, it’s touching people’s lives. If I can stop one heart from breaking I shall not live in vain. If I can ease one life from aching, or cool one pain, or help one fainting robin unto his nest again, I shall not live in vain. What matters really is not the years in your life, but the life in your years, that’s what really matters. When you share the goodness in your heart, you always end up a winner because “Life is an echo”. It gives back what you have given. Learn to embrace the simplicity of life. Learn to be satisfied with what is enough for you and desire more for heavenly reward. God always repays caring acts. It may not be with money or goods, but most often, He repays with happiness, health, success and love.
