God said…

If you never felt pain,
Then how would you know that I’m a Healer?

If you never went through difficulties,
How would you know that I’m a Deliverer?

If you never had a trial,
How could you call yourself an overcomer?

If you never felt sadness,
How would you know that I’m a Comforter?

If you never made a mistake,
How would you know that I’m forgiving?

If you knew all,
How would you know that I will answer your questions?

If you never were in trouble,
How would you know that I will come to your rescue?

If you never were broken,
Then how would know that I can make you whole?

If you never had a problem,
How would you know that I can solve them?

If you never had any suffering,
Then how would you know what Jkatie49esus went through?

If you never went through the fire,
Then how would you become pure?

If I gave you all things,
How would you appreciate them?

If I never corrected you,
How would you know that I love you?

If you had all power,
Then how would you learn to depend on me?

If your life was perfect,
Then what would you need Me for?

Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him (James 1:12)


Life’s tug-of-war

Life can seem ungrateful and not always kind…
Life can pull at your heartstrings and play with your mind…

Life can be blissful and happy and free…
Life can put beauty in the things that you see…

Life can place challenges right at your feet…
Life can make good of the hardships we meet…

Life can overwhelm you and make your head spin…
Life can reward those determined to win…

Life can be hurtful and not always fair…
Life can surround you with people who care…

Life clearly does offer its up and its downs…
Life’s days can bring you both smiles and frowns…

Life teaches us to take the good with the bad…
Life is a mixture of happy and sad…


Take the life that you have and give it your best…
Think positive!
Be happy!
Let God do the rest…

Take the challenges that life has laid at your feet…
Take pride and be thankful for each one you meet…

To yourself give forgiveness if you stumble and fall…
Take each day that is dealt you and give it your all…

Take the love that you’re given and return it with care…
Have faith that when needed it will always be there…

Take time to find the beauty in the things that you see…
Take life’s simple pleasures and let them set your heart free…

Days teach me


Days teach me
To always dream
However it may never come true
But that’s the best way
To live life through!

Days teach me
To dream so high
Never give up and always try
Never let go or say goodbye!

Days teach me
That when there is darkness
For sure dawn is the next
And when everything is so tiring
For sure there would be time to rest!

Days teach me
To always care for a friend
Always be true and never pretend
Always love with no end
And the broken hearts try to mend!

Days teach me
Never to feel the hate
Always be confident and never hesitate
Always believe in fate!

Days teach me
That lovers meet & stay together
And others are apart
So if you are one who have been left behind
Don’t cry and suffer
Just search for a new start!

Days teach me
The past I must forget
And nothing needs my regret!

Days teach me
To open my heart and forgive
Cause that will help me to survive and live!

Days teach me
To always offer my helping hand
And never doubt in people when there is no proof
And always try to understand!

Days teach me
Not to be shy
If I have done something wrong
But to admit it and be proud that I have learned
A lesson that will help me to be strong!
