WE ARE ALL AS ALONE AS EACH OTHER.

Life is meant for self-discovery and growth. It is your responsibility whether you choose to have those in your life that nourish the path you want to walk (and sometimes not all those in our lives will) and it is also your responsibility to honour that some connections are not always right for you, so the connections and yourself must be honoured enough to be let go of. It is only your responsibility to give to yourself everything that you crave from others.

Your role is to love, accept, nourish, support, look after, respect and cherish yourself.

LET YOURSELF LOVE YOU.

You need to recognise and agree with your soul that you are worthy. Because you are. You’ve simply forgotten it for some time.

Your role is to seek from within yourself what you seek from others. There are many things in this world that we cannot control, so don’t place the power of your own fulfilment into the hands of an impossible suitor – the notion that you will feel happy and fulfilled simply because of the words or actions or looks of others. This will never occur.

Don’t live the same day of your life 80 years over.

REALISE YOUR WORTH.

Wow this opened my eyes

[We have to] ensure that in the years ahead we are welcoming the talents of all who can contribute to this country and that we’re living up to the basic American idea that you can make it here if you try.

That’s the idea that gave hope to José Hernández. I want you to think about this story. José’s parents were migrant farm workers. And so, growing up, he was too. He was born in California, though he could have just as easily been born on the other side of the border, if it had been a different time of year, because his family moved around with the seasons. So two of his siblings were actually born in Mexico.

So they traveled a lot, and José joined his parents picking cucumbers and strawberries. And he missed part of school when they returned to Mexico each winter. José didn’t learn English until he was 12 years old. But you know what, José was good at math and he liked math. And the nice thing is that math was the same in every school, and it’s the same in Spanish as it is in English.

So José studied, and he studied hard. And one day, he’s standing in the fields, collecting sugar beets, and he heard on a transistor radio that a man named Franklin Chang-Diaz—a man with a surname like his—was going to be an astronaut for NASA. So José decided—right there in the field, he decided—well, I could be an astronaut, too.

So José kept on studying, and he graduated high school. And he kept on studying, and he earned an engineering degree. And he kept on studying, and he earned a graduate degree. And he kept on working hard, and he ended up at a national laboratory, helping to develop a new kind of digital medical imaging system.

And a few years later, he found himself more than 100 miles above the surface of the Earth, staring out of the window of the shuttle Discovery, and he was remembering the boy in the California fields with that crazy dream that in America everything is possible.

Think about that. That’s the American Dream right there. That’s what we’re fighting for. President Obama on the need for comprehensive immigration reform (via barackobama)

Persistence
by T.D. Jakes

“Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of  faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; for he is faithful that promised.”Hebrews 10:22-23 KJV

My brothers and sisters, you may be going through hell right now. The fact of the matter is you must accept the reality that God the Father, creator of Heaven and earth, is trying to mold you and transform you. God wants to change you into what He has declared as His purpose for your life, and that which He spoke about in His written Word. That Word says: You are more than a conqueror through Jesus Christ who loves you (see Romans 8:37). You are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus (see Rom. 3:22). Greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world (see 1 John 4:4). You have the power to tread upon serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy (see Luke 10:19). No weapon formed against you shall prosper (see Isa. 54:17). You really are the head and not the tail, above and not beneath, the rich and not the poor (see Deut. 28: 12-13).

You, my brothers and sisters, are indeed what God’s Word says you are. You are to appropriate what the Word says you are and what the Word says you have. It involves more than just “believing and receiving!” You’ve got to be able to persist and move forward in the will of God for your life. Your persistence must continue even when everything seems to be falling apart and when it looks like nothing is turning out right. Stop whining. Learn to stand up under pressure. Set the vision of God before you like a flint and move forward full speed ahead with the plan of God. I don’t care how many times the lights get cut off. I don’t care how many times the water and heat are turned off. I don’t care how many times the rent is overdue. I don’t care if you don’t have a car and have to use the bus to get from point A to point B. I don’t care if you have to eat red beans and rice three days a week just to survive.

Amen

peterdwebb:

That’s HANDS DOWN the scariest part of the Bible. That there will be people that die and are turned away from God, even though they healed and prophesied and cast out demons in the name of Jesus. 

This is the context for the passage. It’s part of the sermon on the mount. 

“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.

It’s dangerous to say that obedience isn’t required in Christianity. It’s not enough to just say that He’s Lord. You have to act like it too. If you practice evil with one hand and try to look like you’re doing good with the other, it won’t go well with you. God looks beyond appearances and sees our heart. You can’t just get your ticket to heaven by saying a prayer. You actually have to walk the narrow road. Actually follow Jesus and do what He says. 

The answer to your question of how to avoid being a part of that group, is to do the Will of God. How do you know the Will of God? Read scripture and do it. Don’t just be a hearer of the Word, but actually get ‘er done. Practice goodness and kindness and patience. Be thankful in all circumstances and don’t lose your temper. Pray all the time and hide scripture deep inside your heart. Walk humbly with your God and seek justice and love mercy. 

Love, I have found, is the most misunderstood word in the English language. We take it’s definition and give it boundaries to stay within and yet love grows most in the places where it seems most prohibited or impossible. The human culture is obsessed with defining and categorizing things that we forget that somethings just are. And still we come up with rules, theories, and conclusions to try to understand something that deep down we all know cannot be understood. Because love is not a whisper, an echo, or a kind word spoken but a whisper, an echo, AND a kind word spoken. It took me a long time to realize that, and through time I have come to grasp that love just is. It can be anything and it can be found in anyone. It is not just one feeling but a circuit and series of multiple emotions. If we took the time to slow down our lives and to stop searching for love we can find it surrounding the atmosphere like air. It’s in the arms of a mother, the smile of a stranger, and in the forgiveness of a sinner. No matter how dark and how twisted this world may become we can still find hope in the sense that love never dies and that it swims in and consumes the hearts of each soul on this planet.
