I AM A CHRISTIAN.
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.
