The Someday To Be Happy Is Today

Live your dreams
A little each day.
They aren’t out of reach
Unless you fail to reach out.
Put off unimportant things
But don’t put off living.
Other things can wait,
Your happiness can’t,
If your life is to have purpose and meaning.
The “someday” to be happy is today.

Choose how to live your life.
Life isn’t decided for us
But by us.
Every action is a decision with consequences.
Choose wisely!
The reward should always
Be greater than the price.

Take time to play, but also to think.
Life can’t mean much without much thought.
To be where you want to be
Ask yourself questions, then take action.
So often we go with the flow
And become lost.
Don’t be led; be the leader of your life.

Stop waiting for happiness to happen
and get busy making it happen.
Work with what you have
And what you have will increase.
If one door is closed, open another;
Happiness often comes unexpected.
Watch what you aim for
Because your heart will follow.
Aim nowhere and you’ll go nowhere.
Aim high enough and you may touch the stars.
Aim to be happy
And you will do much more than just pass through life,
You’ll live it to the fullest……

Hello GOD

Hello GOD, I called tonight
To talk a little while…
I need a friend who’ll listen
To my anxiety and trial…

You see, I can’t quite make it
Through a day just on my own…
I need Your love to guide me,
So I’ll never feel alone.

I want to ask You please to keep,
My family safe and sound.
Come and fill their lives with confidence
For whatever fate they’re bound.

Give me faith, dear GOD, to face
Each hour throughout the day,
And not to worry over things
I can’t change in any way.

I thank You GOD, for being home.
And listening to my call,
For giving me such good advice
When I stumble and fall.

Your number, GOD, is the only one
That answers every time.
I never get a busy signal,
Never had to pay a dime.

So thank You, GOD, for listening
To my troubles and my sorrow.
Good night, GOD, I love You, too.
And I’ll call again tomorrow!

Optimism

If I should try to say anew the creed of the optimist, I should say something like this: “I believein God, I believe in man, I believe in the power of the spirit. I believe it is a sacred duty toencourage ourselves and others; to hold the tongue from any unhappy word against God’s world,because no man has any right to complain of a universe which God made good, and whichthousands of men have striven to keep good. I believe we should so act that we may draw nearerand more near the age when no man shall live at his ease while another suffers.” These are thearticles of my faith, and there is yet another on which all depends—to[76] bear this faith aboveevery tempest which overfloods it, and to make it a principle in disaster and through affliction.Optimism is the harmony between man’s spirit and the spirit of God pronouncing His worksgood.

I don’t like pretending because I don’t want people to accept or love me for what I’m not. I want to be as true as I am in the eyes of God. Getting close to Him is not an escape from the “misery” I am experiencing right now but a realization that He is the only one I can turn to at all times and He deserves all the love, praise, thoughtfulness, attention, and energy that I have. Nothing makes my life meaningful and fulfilled than having an intimate relationship with Him, my confidant and everything.

Life is not a game. You never lose. Even before you were born, you have always been a winner because God planned you and created you out of His love. Your parents were pleased while they were making love, that is, making you. In the case of rape, your father was also pleased but in a selfish way. It happened and you were born not to bring suffering on your part or your mother’s but to make your father realize that despite his evil deeds, something wonderful can happen – He gave you the gift of life. To appreciate this gift, you share it with others. By doing this, you become a gift for everyone. Instead of complaining and clinging to past events be grateful and make the best out of life, not get the best out of it. As a winner people look up to you. They expect to see the good, if not the best, things from you. It is your responsibility to hone your character, your actions, and your relationship with others that you may serve as an edifying figure of God’s masterpiece.
