Hello beautiful people!
This is just a quick one before we all run off into the sunset to enjoy the weekend.
As I grow older and with each passing day, it is becoming so important for me to be more selfless and less self-centered; more loving, caring and supportive.
The more I see people operate in wickedness, the more I want to show love.
I have got this big beating heart overflowing with love and I just want to share it with everybody. I realize daily how totally irrelevant it is to hold things against people, to tell petty lies and to incite hatred in people’s hearts for others when our lives are so short; here today, dead tomorrow.
I remember back in primary school, if our friend wasn’t speaking to someone, automatically we (group of friends) all wouldn’t speak to that person too. It sounds so absurd to me right now because I see no sense in that but back then, I did it too!
My heart bleeds when I see so much hatred, unforgiveness and plain wickedness among believers, not to talk of the rest of the world. I always wonder to myself what the relevance of all this is really. We have just one life and this is how we want to live it? Full of anger, strife, bitterness, greed and envy?
One of the things that always prevented me from holding things against people was the thought of them dying, with me still holding that grudge. Now I know some people wouldn’t care at all if their enemies lived or died, but I don’t have that kind of heart. I would never be able to stand it, knowing someone I had an issue with died before we could reconcile and that’s why I don’t wait for people to apologize to me before I forgive them. I will forgive and love you even if you won’t love me back; I don’t lose anything.
You know how they say you can’t give what you don’t have? Well my love tank is overflowing and I have lots of love to give! (I’m feeling Philippians 1:9 right now)
Well I know not everyone has a heart like mine or was built like me, but I choose to see the good in people rather than the bad and I believe everyone is capable of loving and being loved because we are all children of the Father of love.
This weekend, show someone new some love, and if you’ve neglected the people around you for a while, get involved in their lives! Bless someone with your time and attention, it doesn’t always have to be cash. That kind word or compliment you give can change someone’s whole demeanor.
Smile! It makes you look warm and approachable. Make new friends and be friendly, no man is an island.
When I’m gone, I want to be remembered as the one who always loved and cared for all people. My fulfillment comes from knowing that I have been able to help someone, impact a life positively and cause a change with the free gifts God has given me.
I’ve done some digging around and I realize there are so many people who are suffering in silence (I used to be one of them); people who have serious problems but can’t talk to anyone for fear of being judged, criticized, misunderstood or made fun of. I have spoken with many of such people over the phone and via text/instant messages but I have come to understand that is not enough. There are people who need more than just a one-off chat, who need emotional support for some time and when they don’t find it anywhere, they keep suffering in silence and begin to feel stuck in the situations they’re struggling with.
In light of this, I am looking to plan a meet-up for a very few group of women, say 5 ladies who are dating and looking to get married but know they have hard issues in their current relationships which they can’t look past. This is something I have experienced myself so I know how hard it can be, that is why I want to offer my help, freely and willingly. If someone did it for me, I can do it for others too. It will be a judgement-free zone and a safe place for us all to talk freely, pray, study, share ideas and find solutions to these problems. It is also an opportunity for us to have godly sisters we can trust and count on. I believe this is the start of something great and God will definitely see us through. I have experienced some pretty rough things in this area of concern and I know for a fact that with God’s help, everyone going through something similar will also come out victoriously like I did. To be very honest after everything I had been through, I had no idea where my husband was going to come from or if I’d even ever get married and have my own family, but look at God.
Again, this will be totally free. It is a voluntary service I would like to offer so if you’re interested or you know anyone who might be, kindly send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to indicate your interest. I will proceed with further arrangements and contact everyone when everything is finalized. I’m looking to take on this small number for now because I want to be able to connect personally with everyone present and I want our sessions to be very intimate and cozy. I want everyone to feel free and involved, not overwhelmed with large numbers. I’d be honored to meet with you.
Always remember how much God loves you. Enjoy your weekend!
