A dream unfulfilled, withers as a leaf on a barren tree.
Let your hope be like the sap flowing in the soul of a tree,
But yet infused with desire-
and then shall your dream blossom as a flower in the warmth of the sun.
Never give up on your dreams. Hope until the end and then hope again. If you can imagine it, with hard work, you can have it. So why are you doubting? Your only hindrance from reaching a level of success is the image you see in the mirror. Stop comparing your inabilities to another person’s economical status. You have no idea the trials, tribulations, disappointments, or self-centered failures they’ve overcame.
So steer your focus on your own path, and let your steps be sodden with faith as you reach “YOUR” level of success.
There is a day coming when your present will be as an adolescence memory. Can you remember the color of your first bottle? Or the name of the nurse who brought you to your mother? Just as those days have faded away in a great distance, so shall your current condition. As it takes is a little faith and physical efforts to assist your faith. Now, it doesn’t mean that your current condition is so bad that you need days of relief to elevate the pressure from your mind, but rather the phrase ‘your better days are coming’ is simply a statement or declaration of faith.
Before we try to change someone else, we must first look at our own flaws or shortcomings. There is so much to change inwardly and outwardly. The inward change can be to have a better grip on our emotions, and the outward can be a physical change. The bottom line is that there is always something we can change if we stop and look in the mirror.
It’s beneficial to take a personal inventory. Have you progresses in any arena of your life from last week to this week? Are you still controlled by emotions, as you were last month? Do negative thoughts flood your mind constantly? Are you always assuming?
There are many other questions that could be asked to determine where we are mentally. The mind controls the body. If we change our thought processes concerning all things, our life will move forward in it’s course.
Let us leave yesterday in the past. The only thing we can gleam from it is knowledge, whether good or bad. So strive in the newness of today. Even if you make a mistake, move from it mentally first, and then detach your body from it, if it’s a physical ailment or physical stumbling block.
Sometimes we stay in yesterday and miss the blessings that are waiting for us today.
You never know what a person is going through or where they are mentally or spiritually. Some things are not fruitful for your understanding. When emotions get involved, we are blinded to things that are not appeasing to our emotional stance. Like a kid holding a kite, simply let go of thoughts that invade your sanity. Thoughts that have you unable to sleep, eat, or function. There is a solution to everything….PRAYER.
It’s not about demonstrating a profound distinguished vocabulary of diverse parabolic dialogue, but rather a simplistic cry for help. When the prayer is in faith and not boastful or grudging, your answer is sent before you can say amen.
What is a desire? A desire is a strong feeling of wanting to have something or wishing for something to happen.
The problem comes in when people develop carnal or unhealthy desires. Its one thing to desire a better way of life, and another to desire to be in a relationship with a person. If you work and do those things which are necessary, then your desire for success will manifest. When your desires lean toward a physical person, it can easily fall into the arena of lust. People often get the two confused. Lust is more than a physical interaction with another, or as some adequately put it, sex. But rather lust is a passionate or overmastering desire or craving. And this desire can easily fall into the category of lusting for sex or drugs or anything that contort the body to its will. Even the Bible says, Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. So every desire is not evil. We must realize and understand the dangers of uncontrolled lust, which can be a persistent desire for carnal or unhealthy things, and thus lead to violent outburst of illicit physical acts. As we cast our trust in the Lord, He will know when our desires are in right perspective, and not up under the umbrella of vanity.
Many people spend the majority of their time battling thoughts of insecurity. This way of thinking will cause the body to manifest the emotions thereof. In the process we beat ourselves up and conjure up a heap of assumptions. in this mindset, we approach people, thinking they have evil thoughts about us or we believe the lies we have created within the walls of our mind. An explosion will erupt at the end of this cycle, and in the process people will be emotionally damage or relationships will become altered.
Whenever negative thoughts attempt to enter your mind, cast them away. You have the power to cast away thought of negativity. Its more beneficial for us emotionally, physically, and socially to channel our thoughts toward positive thinking. As a man thinketh in his heart: so is he….
If you want a better way of life, simply change the way you think.
How many times have you prayed constantly about the same thing over and over? As if the first prayer wasn’t potent enough to make it beyond the heavens. Once the thought of prayer enters our mind, the spirit of prayer is moving. It is our faith that push out the intent of the heart in an audible and non audible form. By faith we shall receive the just answer to our request. I use the word ‘just’ to indicate that the answer to our prayers may not appease the eyes, but they are good for the soul. Sometimes the answer is staring right at you, but we are so busy searching in the heavens that we have left the earth and the answer to our prayer.
