I believe That if you’re on it And do not give up, One day, you will make it; I believe That winners never quit, And quitters never win; I believe The best is yet to come; I believe The future is bright; I believe That what we have seen In technological strides, Is nothing compared To what is to come; I believe That we have to be careful As we seek to advance Scientifically; Because we can wipe out humanity; I believe In God, the author of the universe; I believe He is omnipotent; There’s nothing he cannot do.
We are human beings.Most of us lead a so called ‘busy life’.Many claim so.
These are Covid days and you are cursing Everyone and the Almighty in particular for all the uncertainties and the life not being busy.
What is happening actually ?
Once you are 18 + your responsibilities increase and before you realize,you have a family adding to your burden.
You are stuck with your work or go on changing the jobs,and you are ever busy chasing money and in the process make heavy losses instead of becoming rich.
Now you start comparing yourself with others whom you feel, leading a better life than yours, in spite of you better qualified.
At one stage with all the disappointments and dissatisfaction abound,you become dejected,sometimes depressed even violent,cursing yourself and rest of the others and now it’s the time for you to start the blame games.
Since you are a God fearing person you start looking up for help from the Heaven.
You become angry soon because you wished a quick fix because you are sincerely praying,but strangely remembering Him only during times you are in crisis.
By now you are getting agitated and annoyed because God is taking His own time,even testing your patience.
You begin to feel that He not listening to you and you start wondering whether His presence is real and wondering whether to continue to pray thinking Almighty wasting your time ! !
My friend,there is no need to lead this kind of wretched life.
This is not what life offers you.
Life is not wretched
Unknown to you,God has already given you His choicest blessings since you are His creation.
There are hundreds of special moments happening in your life to celebrate rather than to criticize.
Although you may feel nothing great happening ,remember you are always blessed by Him.You are much better off than the most of the people.
You may not be rich,but you have a loving family,good friends and most importantly your basic needs are met.What else you need ?
A young woman was sitting at her dining table,worried about taxes to be paid,housework to be done and to top it all her extended family was coming over for festival lunch the next day.
She was not feeling very thankful at that time.
As she turned her gaze sideways,she noticed her young daughter scribbling furiously into her notebook.
“My teacher asked us to write a paragraph on ‘negative thanks giving’ for homework today” said the daughter.”She asked us to write down things we are thankful for,things that make us feel not so good in the beginning,but turn out to be good after all”
With curiosity,the mother peeked into the book.This is what her daughter wrote.
” I am thankful for the final exams,because that means school is almost over.I am thankful for bad tasting medicine,because it helps me to feel better.I am thankful for walking up to the alarm clock,because it means I am still alive”.
It then dawned on the mother that she had lot of things to be thankful for ! She thought again……
She had to pay taxes but that meant she was fortunate to be employed.
She had housework to do but that meant she had a shelter to live in.
She had to cook for her many family members for lunch but that meant she had a family with whom she could celebrate.
We generally complain about negative things in life but we fail to look at the positive side of it.What is the positive in your negative ? Look at the better part of life and make your everyday a great day.
Any lessons ?
How many times you counted your blessings ?
I doubt.All the time you are busy complaining and pleading with the Almighty.
Don’t think of the things you didn’t get after praying.Think of countless blessings God gave you without asking unknown
“The secret of happiness is to count your blessings while others are adding up their troubles”Unknown
That one day we all remember to thank God is on ‘Thanks giving day”,for the good things that have happened or happening.
Surprisingly people remember this day for the delicious food.I may be wrong and you can correct me.
If you don’t believe in God, What do you believe in? And how can you believe in yourself? You have to believe in God, Believe there is someone, Or some power by far Greater than you, And responsible For your being here; For the world we see; And the world we don’t see; All the world could not have happened as an accident; It did not just happen And is as perfect as it is; There is a mighty brain Behind the universe; We are told that brain is God; We are told by people Who were here before us, Who were told By people who were told; Who were told By people who were told; Who were told By people who were told; Who were told By people who were told; If I refuse their story, Which story shall I believe? And where will it come from? Will I create my own story? Do I think of the billions Of people Who have lived in this world I am the most intelligent? No! Far from it; I wouldn’t make a fool Of myself; What I came and met I will leave and go, And it will continue To be believed, Hence, wisdom demands That I believe; By the way, Whether I believe Or I don’t believe in God, Nothing will change In the story of God, But I may have to explain To him in my next world Why I refused to believe. So, I believe. Do you believe? Yes, I believe.
Don’t be the greatest fool ever;
The greatest fool
Who ever lived;
And anyone who lives
Ohnly for now
And cares less about eternity;
How foolish is such a one!
To say there is no eternity
Because you don’t understand
Is foolishness of the top rank;
Who knew there was
A world like ours
Before they came to live here?
You found yourself here;
And you will find yourself leaving at a time you least expected;
Be wise and accept
What millions have believed
Down the centuries:
That there is life after death;
Maybe you died in one world
Before you were born
Into this world;
What stops you
From being born
Into another world
When you die and leave
There’s life after life.
Or should I say
I believe in life after death?
