"Brothers and sisters, fill your minds with whatever is good and true, whatever is pure, whatever is noble and right, whatever is lovely, whatever is honorable and admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things. Put them into practice, and God -who gives us peace- will be with you." (Philippians 4:8)

"Thanks for the Gift: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Philippians 4:13)

We must train our minds to think upon these positive and peaceful things. We must keep our minds protected, because the devil could take advantage of those vulnerable ones.

When I say,..."I am a Christian," I am whispering that, I was lost. Now, I am found and forgiven by the Lord Jesus Christ, our Savior. So in other words, I was lost, but I prayed for forgiveness with a humble heart, and the Lord set me free from my sins. Good News: The Lord has a plan for our lives, and it is freedom in Him.
I believe that God speaks to our hearts, as you listen to Him. Seek, and you'll find Him. Sometimes, it requires us to pray -the way to communicate with God- and to read His words of wisdom in the Holy Bible. I am excited about learning more of this wonderful experience that I have discovered within my inner self: a marvelous world of poetry, stories and inspirational reflections that, I truly enjoy sharing with others. I believe that God uses instruments to communicate with people in so many different ways. So open your heart for Jesus, slow down and listen or read inspirational messages that are coming to you. The Lord may knock at the door of your heart. Then, open up and let Jesus come into your life. You may be surprised at what the Lord has to say to you.
..."Brothers and Sisters, fill your minds with whatever is good and true, whatever is pure, whatever is noble and right, whatever is lovely, whatever is honorable and admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things. Put them into practice, and our Heavenly Father, God -who gives us peace- will be with you." (Philippians 4: 8)
When I grew older, I realized how important that Bible Verse would be to me. We must train our minds to think upon these positive and peaceful things. God has given us the keys to have a peaceful mind, but we have to be willing to obey it. We must do all we could to protect our minds from destructive habits or evil inputs. We must keep our minds protected, because they could really turn into a battlefield; and the devil could work and take advantage of those vulnerable ones.
One area of refocusing our minds is in the area of our emotions. At times, our minds could become bombarded with anger, fear, frustration, depression or hopelessness. You see, as long as we live in an imperfect world, we shall be faced with these challenges. However, in those dreadful moments of self-doubts, we must decide and focus our attention in what we want to become, either good or bad or nothing at all. We should pray to the Lord for His help at that point. We don't have to stay and dwell on bad state of minds that hurt us. We should indeed, allow ourselves to change for the better and for our own goodness. We are free to choose from good or wrong with a genuine goodwill. Christ only shows us the right way to go in our lives.
The Bible tells us words of wisdom about these reflections:
"A LIVING HOPE." (Peter 1: 3-7, 12)
"Let us give thanks to God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!! Because of His great mercy, He gave us new life by raising Jesus Christ from death. This fills us with a living hope, and so we look forward to possessing the rich blessings that God keeps for His people. He keeps them for you in Heaven, where they cannot decay or spoil or fade away. They are for you, who through faith are kept safe by God's power for the salvation which is ready to be revealed at the end of time. Be glad about this, even though it may now be necessary for you to be sad for a while because of the many kinds of trials you suffer. Their purpose is to prove that your faith is genuine. Even gold, which can be destroyed, is tested, so that it may endure. Then, you will receive praise and glory and honor on the Day when Jesus Christ is revealed."..."God revealed to these prophets that their work was not for their own benefit, but for yours, as they spoke about those things which you have now heard from the messengers who announced the Good News by the power of the Holy Spirit sent from Heaven."
In other words, we should allow ourselves to change for the better. You see, no matter what we do, we cannot change the number of hours that are gone in the day. We are unable to stop the time from going. Yet, you have a great impact and power over what goes into those hours, and what comes out from them. So, fill the hours with positive purposes, and the passing of time will work in your favour. Fill your day with meaning, with creativity, with goodness, joy and love; and each day will leave behind lasting values for your own world. Align your efforts more closely with your true purpose, and you'll find that those efforts quickly become much more effective.
Choose to put more meaning in each moment in your life, and you'll find a sense of fulfillment in your heart. Begin to fill the world with your own unique beauty, store your awards and go beyond the limits of time. Therefore, your own world will be filled with meaningful and positive actions. Moreover, when conditions change for the worse, there is no need to despair or give up, for you have the ability to find a new starting point, from which you can raise yourself to higher levels of achievement. There is always a way to get where you have chosen to go. Each challenge gives you new ways to add value to your dream.
Let us become an example of life for others to follow in the same path of a righteous Christian life!! Peace be with you, and God bless you all.

We know that the fruits of the spirit -our inner wealth- are:

Hope, kindness, love, peace, humility, patience, tolerance, compassion, gratefulness, gratitude, wisdom, joy, meekness (a humble heart), the gift of giving, and so on... We also know that the qualities of the character -our inner wealth- are: Honesty, respect, responsibility, commitment, loyalty, trustworthiness, ethics, unselfishness, hardworking, cleanliness, self-assurance, control of oneself, and so on...

Are we being good fruits for our dear Lord today??...

Are the qualities of our character blend well with the fruits of the spirit?? Ask yourself that question!!... Christian lives should be filled with good deeds.

"We shall know them by their fruits." Jesus Christ said in this Bible Verse. (Matthew 7:16)

Let us now, self-examine our own conscious within our inner self and see if the fruits of the spirit blend well with the qualities of the character. So, if the answer is yes, we are in balance with our own self and with the principles of a Christian life. Trust God in all circumstances, for He is so good all the time. I believe that God is in control, and He has a plan in our lives. Count your blessings one by one, not your troubles. Find joy and peace in your heart that will make you grow stronger. Strength and peace come first from within the spirit.

It is so important to consider the way you carry yourself at your best, and project your own image to others. So, this is the way how people may see your worth, as a whole person. Be nice with others, treat them the way you would like to be treated in return, and show the very best of you. The image you project from the outside, it will usually reflect your image from inside your heart, the real you and who you are. Achievement is the goal to pursue for a successful life.

Talk to the Lord in prayers on daily basis, which is the best communication with the Lord, confess to Him what is wrong with you that may offend Him, ask Him for forgiveness of your sins, ask for reconciliation with the Lord, which is so important, and promise to correct the wrong doings and make it better for the next day. Of course, reading your Bible on daily basis will provide you with comfort for your soul and food for thoughts in one hand, and it will certainly keep the devil away on the other hand. So, in this way, the slow process of learning in our lifetime will make us a bit more perfect each day to the eyes of our dear Lord.

Let us become an example of life for others to follow in the same path of a righteous Christian life!!... Let us pray!!...

Dear Lord,

Thank You for this brand new day that You are giving to us, for being with us this day and for the many blessings You grant to us!! We are sorry, sweet Lord, that we have said, thought or done things that were not pleasing You. We ask You for forgiveness. Grant us Lord, Your strength and peace that pass all understanding, and only You and You alone can give. Give us healings, where there is mental or physical illness. Give us a happy heart to show others our inner wealth. Inside our hearts, it is only You, Lord, shining through like a glowing beam over a colorful rainbow. Please, dear Lord Jesus, be with us in all circumstances, protect us also from evil doers. We love You and need You, Almighty Heavenly Father. We are nothing without You, but dust in the wind. The Glory is all Yours. We trust You and believe in You, dear Lord Jesus Christ. You are our Savior, our fortress and our rock of salvation. Please, show us the way with the light of the Holy Spirit. Lord, give us a joyful heart, where there is hurting somehow. Grant us Your unconditional love, touch our hearts with Your loving arms and lead us into Eternity, sweet Lord, if that is Your Will. God's Will be done in all circumstances. Your Heavenly love will embrace us until the end of time, as You promise. Lord, make us an instrument of Your peace. As we now, come to You with quiet personal prayers, we ask that You will listen to our needs. Thank You, Lord, for being with us at all times!! In Jesus' most precious and Holy Name, we pray. AMEN.

We are all mortal beings, and we should prepare ourselves to meet with our Heavenly Father and our dear Lord, Jesus one day, when He will call us to our final home in Heaven. Have you ever thought about this??...So, think about it now!!... I'll share a very inspirational Bible verse today. PSALM 23.

"THE LORD IS OUR SHEPHERD." The Lord is my shepherd; I have everything I need. He lets me rest in fields of green pastures and leads me to quiet pools of fresh water. He gives me new strength. He guides me in the right paths, as He has promised. Even if I go through the deepest darkness, I shall not be afraid, Lord, for You are with me. Your shepherd's rod and staff protect me. You prepare a banquet for me, where all my enemies can see me; You welcome me as a honored guest and fill my cup to the brim. I know that Your goodness and love will be with me all my life; and Your house will be my home as long as I live."
