|Be kinder than usual, for everyone is fighting some kind of battle in this life.|
People only see the success...
They never see the sacrifices.
No one understands the sacrifices or pain you went through to get to where you are.
It's acceptable for the world to not love you, it's acceptable for old friends to stop loving you.
But it's never acceptable for you to stop loving yourself. You're all you got in this world sweetheart. Loving yourself helps you see beauty in things that the world has turned ugly.
You wanna change your life, change the way you think, the way you see life... The way you see yourself. You'll always end up where you started if you still watering the same plants that caused you pain in the beginning.
I've made a promise that when life knocks us down and you're not strong enough to lift yourself up, I'll be there to carry your bags. And if loved ones break your heart and all you want to do is cry... then we'll cry together. Understand that you'll never have to do life alone anymore. We learn together, we grow together.
I wish there was a way to know you're in the good ol' days before you've actually left them.
With that being said... Don't waste your life. Don't get upset so easily. Don't love your possessions, put your love in people... We need it most.
One day a teacher wrote 10 math problems on the board. He got the first one wrong. The students started laughing. The teacher turns around and says " I know I got the first problem wrong, I did that on purpose. I want you to learn something about this world. You can see that I got 9 out of 10 answers correct but none of you recongized that; you all laughed because of the one thing I did wrong. "
Here's the lesson...
The world will never appreciate the good you do a million times but will criticize the one thing you did wrong. But let us not get discouraged, for we will rise above.
When the rich takes money from the poor, it's business. When the poor fights back, it's violence
We need to understand that the system isn't broken, it was designed this way.
In my darkness I remember momma saying " surrender to the Lord and he'll wipe your slate clean." Ohio how I wanna come near and give you the biggest hug and kiss, but there's blood on my hands and my lips aren't clean.
No matter how kind and loving you try to be with others, people can only meet you as deeply as they've met themselves.
There was a couple who truly wanted to give themselves to God and work on their spiritual growth with God. They started praying together, reading the bible together and practicing to be more faithful to God. A month or two later they told each other that they weren't feeling any change, they were happy with each other and with their relationship but that they didn't feel like God was really with them... there were no major changes or blessings in their lives they said. So they slowly went back to being themselves. Soon after, their world started to crumble, they started to say and do things they wouldn't normally do. They fought more and more to the point they asked each other what's going o...
Look what you've made me do, look what I've changed for you. To be Frank, I knew I overpaid my dues but I didn't think I was a slave to you. When I showed you my weakness you took advantage but I stuck to you like crazy glue. I asked the Lord to please prevent my heart from turning cold because without love in your heart, you lose half of your soul. And with him answering my prayers, he turned my heart to gold... giving me the power to love my enemies whole.
I must say...I’m much better. I’m living better. The
best part about it is that my lady and I figured it out together. We established an empire bond. Grew closer to God. And now Satan feeling alarmed.
Don't drink like I used to, started praying more than I used to, I don't think like I used to... life's taught me new skills. I've healed from those scars that I shouldn't reveal... I'm starting to find my place here.
I tend to get uncomfortable when things get comfortable... i'm sorry love.
Oh what a blessing it is, all the frowns are upside down today. My heart is filled with love, all my enemies has taken a break today. Got out of bed with no aches or pain...oh I shout with joy today. So much sin in this world but the clouds have withered away, the sun rises on the ocean waves... The Lord has given us a break today. Tomorrow may bring sorrow and pain but the love is here today. As the fresh breeze sways through the trees and your family made ends meet today, don't forget to give praise.
I don't feel like you're mine enough. Sometimes I feel I don't have you quite enough. Every time I try to escape it.... the smell of your fragrance pulls me back in.
Anyone who walks life saying "I have a certain type" or believes that they only go for a certain type. Rather it's dating, or choosing friends. I want to tell you that you will never be able to see everything life has to offer because you are stuck in a certain type and culture views. Life is meant to explore. Open your eyes to new things my love. With that being said, I do think it's extremely important on who you choose as a friend and who you choose to marry but these things doesn't require having a certain "type". Love all races and cultures. If you listen to understand with a tongue that speaks to inspire others, every culture will be accepting. Lean not on what society says is true...so...
I apologize for fitting in when I know you made me different. I was born foolish but you filled me with wisdom. You were always the light to my darkness, the faith to prevent my suicidal thoughts. And the strength that pick me up on my weakest days. You made me brave when I was born a coward. You perfected my imperfections and made beauty of my past. You made me first when I thought I was last. Because of your grace, i don't look like what i've been through. Because of your grace, I am free now. You are the reason why i'm smiling. Each and everyday you remind me that you are the beginning and the end, the truth and the light. I am very thankful.
Remember when I used to steal change from your purse to buy candy at school? Now I got friends stealing money out of my Gucci bag hoping I won't notice. I'm not upset with him. I'm hurt that they were ever in a position where they feel like they had to steal. Instead of getting angry...I hugged him with tears in my eyes. Ma, at night I twist and turn in my bed because I can't get away from my hellish past. Lately, I've been sleeping with all kinds of women. Women I wouldn't typically go for... like married women and atheists. I think my days are numbered, i'm finding it hard to smile now days.
I went to a coffee shop today. I was relaxing on the rooftop enjoying the lovely view when I over heard two people talking. One man said " The two shall become one flesh; so... they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate. " the one man continued " When a couple consummate their vows, it is not man, woman, pastor, or parent who's the main actor...God is.
The other guy said " That's huge. I truly value that but there's so many flaws in my wife and I's marriage. We lack a lot things that we just can't provide for each other. "
The first guy smiled with no ounce of doubt. And said " God will bring you in a relationship with someone most ...
I have a story.
Milo lost his job. Milo was sitting on the couch with tears in his eyes wondering how he was going to tell his wife. Milo's dad walked in the room and saw his son weeping. Before his dad could say anything, Milo yelled "I lost my job, dad. I'm losing it. Idk how i'm going to take care of my family. I feel like giving up." His dad tossed him the keys and said "let's drive."
Milo: Really? You want me to drive your new car?
Dad: Yes, let's drive.
MILO STARTS DRIVING.
Milo: It's starting to rain, dad. Do you want me to turn around?
Dad: No, keep driving.
Milo: Dad, it's starting to rain harder. Do you want me to pull over?
Dad: No, keep going. In fact, get o...
You Must Be An Angel
In a world where darkness can be felt, hope can be lost and dreams can be shattered. You seem to have built your palace with stone...You've aways remained unbroken. There's no hate in your heart. In times of unjust you've always remained loving and gentle. You are so patient. You have given it all away many times and have been left with nothing... just to see someone else happy. In a world full of greed and conditional love, you certainly can't go unnoticed. You walk this land in the flesh... yet, you live in the heavens.
I've come so far from where I used to be. I've had so much success over the years. I'm at the point where I feel like I'm all out of blessings. As if there's no more hope for me. I feel trapped and lost. Regardless, I just want you to know that i'm forever thankful.
I stare at my reflection in the mirror: "Why am I doing this to myself?" At the end, only the scars remain. The ones who claims to love me left me out to die at my weakest hour. Please forgive me if I seem a little pale. I've been spending most of my days sleeping and most of my nights thinking... I keep falling.
Love, why do you do this? Why do you let him put you through this? You never know what's good until it's gone, girl he's clueless.
I feel your vibe, it's contagious. My life is going through some changes. Let me get this career going steady. And I promise by then I'll be ready. This New York life got me anxious. I don't like leaving my apartment, so many people and they're heartless. I'm trying to make it on my own. Mom and Pop moved to France. I haven't spoken to them in weeks. I'm venting but I just really need to sleep.
