The road to success

The road leading to success
Is not smooth.
The road leading to success
Is rough and full of potholes.
The road leading to success
Is not bright;
The road leading to success
Is sometimes very dark;
The road leading to success
Is not always straight;
The road leading to success
Is sometimes full of bends.
Let not the roughness;
The potholes,
The bends,
or the darkness discourage you;

The light and darkness of the world?

The period of lent that led into Easter was a period of renewal. We suffer with Jesus throughout Lent, and our sins are expected to die with Jesus on Good Friday when he dies on the cross.

As Jesus resurrects into a new life on Easter Sunday, we who are his followers are supposed to resurrect too from our sinfulness into a new life. This means we leave sin behind to become new creations – the light of the world.

Are you a new creation? Have you left sin behind? Are you determined to fight sin and stand out as the light of the world as Jesus Christ?

May God grant you the grace to be that – a new creation; the light of the world; fully what he created you to be so that you will help make the world a place that people will feel happy, comfortable and safe to live in.

For now, the world is far from what God created it to be because instead of being the light of the world, a lot of us are the darkness of the world.

You choose

You can be a source of joy to others;
You can be a source of sorrow;
You can wipe tears from the eyes of the mourning;
You can cause tears to pouring from eyes of people;
You can use your riches to uplift others;
You can use your riches to trample on others;
You can use your power to make the world better;
You can use your power to make the world worse;
You can use your talent for good;
You can use your talent for evil.
You can choose good;
You can choose evil.

Why hate darkness?

Don’t hate darkness. Darkness is not all bad. People who hate darkness have not understood the world. There is evil in darkness for sure; but there is good in it as well. Light is not all good either. There is good in light; and there is evil in it as well. Many good things are done in darkness; many evil things are done in light. Both light and darkness are good and are evil. Everything under the surface of the earth has two sides; a good side and an evil side.

Darkness

Who can truly darkness like?
When with evil darkness comes;
When full control darkness takes,
Many good things also start to go wrong;
Whereas darkness has its positive side;
Not just having a negative side;
Many good things from darkness come;
Much good also darkness does;
Darkness thus is not all bad;
Great life lessons it teaches us;
All dark moments that we have,
Great good also can they bring;
Look then therein for the good;
Spend less time on that dark side.
