Strong

Cristian Mihai

strength“Difficulties are meant to rouse, not discourage. The human spirit is to grow strong by conflict.” -William Ellery Channing

They say that you never know how strong you are until being strong is the only option you have. Some people like to put a lot of emphasis on being strong. They like to be perceived as strong, they like their strength to be acknowledged by others, never realizing that they’re just pretending to be strong, pretending to be tough.

There is a big difference between being strong and being tough. Between having the courage to pursue one’s dreams and isolating oneself emotionally from the rest of the world. Being strong is not about building walls, it’s about building bridges. It’s about taking that small island that is one self and connecting it with others. It’s about having a purpose, about having principles and abiding them no matter what.

The ‘LIVE’ Ones

Okay! So, you ever wondered why it’s been so tough on you? Why as a believer, it seems as though you’re battled against on every side? Why matters just keep arising every bit of the journey? Well, I’ve got a simple answer to that.

Kizo Daniels' Blog

Just going to do a little bit of inspirational and motivational today. No crazy revelation, no deep scripture insight (although I think there still is), but definitely will give you that “hmmm” moment.

Okay! So, you ever wondered why it’s been so tough on you? Why as a believer, it seems as though you’re battled against on every side? Why matters just keep arising every bit of the journey? Well, I’ve got a simple answer to that. You’re ALIVE! And no, I don’t mean being alive because you’re breathing in oxygen and exhaling carbon dioxide. I mean, you’re alive by reason of your life in Christ Jesus.

You have to understand that your being alive is the reason why you’re still facing all of these tribulations. Dead people don’t have issues, do they? They are just lying still-dead. No problems. But when there’s life, then it’s sure that you’ll still…

Why People ‘Lose’ Their Faith

real reason people aren’t coming to church, and the real reason we are losing members is the fact that many of us just aren’t nearly as good a Christian as we claim to be.

Operation Christian Dad

A recent poll done by the good people at Pew Research Center indicate that church growth and attendance is declining. As much as we’d like to blame the next generation for the slumping numbers because they were never in church to begin with, it’s also people who were in church and now aren’t.

There’s a number of reasons why the church, especially the Christian Church is seeing a decline. For starters, the church, at least according to many today just isn’t relevant anymore. The church doesn’t teach the same values that society does and for many youngsters growing up in a secular world, it’s just not cool enough.

Another reason for the shrinking numbers is that church is what old people do, church means you have to get up on Sunday morning and get dressed, you have to go to a place where tattoos are frowned upon, nobody even knows…

Patterns

Patterns

For one who moves in uncertainty, this
flower, the petals of which

gently fade, as if reason
is found in the decline of beauty
and its comforts.

But all you touch remains
touched. If silence reveals the body

of music, what can be said of darkness? Words
appear motionless until they blossom, a
pattern seldom seen yet carried to us in

all manner of conveyance. Listen,
for there is no purer voice.

Let the earth speak.

RAM SAI NAG

Everyone’s biggest fear is breakup. When you first fall in love, it is so overwhelming you can hardly imagine breakup with that fabulous person. They are your everything. Life is beautiful.

After the “honeymoon period” is over, cracks can begin to appear. As someone who has been married for almost 13 years and together for 18 years, I can say that a healthy relationship heals and repairs those cracks, and can become even stronger.

For others, those cracks are the beginning of the end.

There are 9 shocking reasons that cause couples to breakup more than any others. There’s a lot to learn from each and every one of them to prevent the same thing happening in your relationship.

1. It wasn’t love in the first place:

Mistaking lust for love. It’s a bit of a bummer, but it’s almost impossible to stay as madly lustful for someone as most…

Dominating Success; The policy to gain ground!

“You know who you’re!”

WordKindle

“You see things; and you say, ‘Why?’ But I dream things that never were; and I say, ‘Why not?”
The thought-provoking quote from Gorge Bernard Shaw really hit my mind & made me think on. “You know who you’re!” & isn’t that enough to motivate you? Actually what happens with us is we forget to know ourselves ’cause aren’t we so strongly envious of others that we even unlearn to listen our own voice? Don’t try to be what you can’t be rather I’d say our consent must be to understand our true purpose in life; the real reason behind our existence! Redeem your true strength & invest your energy in amplifying it, I’m sure failure won’t even try to snatch your opportunity to be a successful again! By merely copying others, we can never be what we truly are & each of us knows that well but the only problem…

A Call to Leave the Ordinary

Vincent Egoro

Have you done the best you thought you are capable of doing? Don’t you think there is something still inside you; some untapped potential which if utilized will help you realize the life of your dreams?

Why be satisfied to go on day after day; month after month and year after year being living at the same level, expressing nothing new about you, doing the same old things and habits in the same old way you are used to simply because you are too scared to try out new ways, to test those new ideas that have been ringing in your mind?

For how long will you continue to be just an ordinary employee, just an ordinary woman, just an ordinary man, just an ordinary student, just an ordinary farmer, just an ordinary sales person, just an ordinary house wife, just an ordinary church goer?

My friend…
