IT IS BY HIS GRACE

It’s not important to hold all the good card in life,but it’s important how well you play with the cards you hold.Have faith and have a successful life.One of the basic differences between God and humans is,God gives,gives and forgives.But the human get,gets and forgets.Be thankful in life…
If you think it is your alarm clock that woke you up this morning,try putting it beside a dead body and you will realised that it is the Grace of God that woke you up.

REMEMBER : IT IS NOT THE END

Life is not about finding the right person,but creating the right relationship.It’s not how we care in the beginning,but how much we care till the end.Some people always throw stones in your path.It depends on what you make of them:a wall or a bridge?-Remember you are the architect of your life.

Heavy rains remind us of challenges in life.Never ask for a lighter rain,just pray to God for a better umbrella.- That is the attitude.Often when we lose all hope and think this is the end,remember God and pray it is a bend not the end.

IT DOESN’T MEAN YOU’VE WON

When i shut my mouth and turn to walk away,it doesn’t mean you’ve won. It simply means your stupid ass isn’t worth anymore of my time.

PSALM CHAPTER 37 VERSES ONE TO SIX

Do not fret because of evil or envious of those who do wrong; for like the grass they will soon wither like green plants they will soon die away.
Trust in the Lord and do good;dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord,trust in Him and He will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn of your cause like the noonday sun.

My MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE FOR 2015

A new year is like a blank book,the pen is in your hands.
It is your chance to write a beautiful story for yourself.
Your life is what your thoughts make it,
Your New Year is what,what you make it.
