The story of Mary and Martha serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of keeping the first thing first in our lives. By prioritizing our relationship with God, we can avoid a victim mentality, take responsibility for our choices, and find fulfillment in aligning our actions with His will. Let us learn from Mary’s example and make intentional efforts to sit at Jesus’ feet, allowing His teachings to guide our lives.
Just like a valuable item that has been broken into pieces, our gifts can still be repaired and put back together. God’s grace and love are always available to restore and renew what has been damaged or neglected. It is never too late to pick up the pieces and start using our gifts again.
Celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ is more than a Christian holiday or a Christian festival. It is an opportunity to pause and give thanks for the love, hope, and joy found in Jesus – our Saviour and friend. As we exchange gifts with loved ones, it is out of remembrance of the gift God gave us in Jesus. The gift is that we are loved, are never alone, and can have hope for the future.
People also procrastinate because they ignore the value of time. Everyone has a limited time to spend on earth. In light of this, time is the most valuable commodity you have. It’s not money; unlike time, you can borrow money, save, or earn more. You can’t do that with time. Every single second you waste is gone forever. It is important you value time and use it wisely. Seneca said, “While we waste our time hesitating and postponing, life is slipping away.”
Galatians 5:22 speaks of fruit of the spirit. Does your potential soul-mate exhibit these signs? Love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness and faithfulness? I do believe that God can change the heart of any person, but is that person willing to be changed?
Love so true; pure; overwhelming; unconditional and beautiful; love I have never experienced.
I was bitten, battered, broken, destroyed, hopeless, scared and had no place to run to. With a lost identity and dignity, filthy and as dirty as a pig, I roam the streets with nobody willing to help.
Then He came in His beautiful royal apparel and a charming smile. He stretched forth His hands and said to me: “Come! Come, I will give you rest.”
When you approach a problem with a positive attitude, you will be inspired to do all you know to do, while trusting God to do the heavy lifting that you cannot. A positive attitude will help you stay on top of negative circumstances, instead of letting them crush you.
Surround yourself with positivity and understanding, letting go of the judgments and expectations that society imposes. Embrace self-care practices, nourishing your body, mind, and spirit as you navigate the path to healing and acceptance.
Showing gratitude has benefits or advantages both to the person showing appreciation and the person receiving it. Gratitude improves the well-being of the giver and the recipient. Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity, lower levels of depression, and build strong relationships. It allows people (the receiver) to feel that they are needed and that their efforts are valued.
When faced with complex challenges, seeking guidance from the Word of God can provide immense clarity. Seeking God’s wisdom can offer profound insights. By turning to prayer and meditation, you open yourself up to receiving wisdom and knowledge that may have been eluding you.
