One never knows what tomorrow will bring,
So live life to the fullest today.
Enjoy the treasures that God has given
And never give into dismay.
Don’t let dark clouds get you down,
Be happy and carefree in mind.
Each cloud has a silver lining
That you must search for and find.
Always look for the good in others
And life will be happier for you.
Goodness and love will always make
Dark skies seem brighter and blue.
Love each other as God has loved you
And peace will be yours to share.
Know that whatever tomorrow brings
Will find you safe in God’s care.
Let not thy heart be troubled, neither be afraid. Troubles of life will come along, the world is full of problems and no one is immune, however if you put your trust in God, He will see you through. He says ”I will never leave you or forsake you” If you are going through tough times. If there is a problem in your life, just remember His promise; trust in his words and he will see you through.
The year two thousand and eleven is almost at a close, very soon we will be welcoming the year two thousand and twelve. As we await this moment let us take the time to reflect. How have we spent the year thus far? Were we at any point able to make a positive impact on someone else life. Were we able to maintain a spirit of forgiveness and not give in to the urge to render evil for evil.
A lot of problem in the world today is due to a lack of love. People hold on to old grudges, resentments and the thought of getting even and in so doing lose touch of what is right and what is wrong. Someone does you wrong and you so badly want to even the score that it doesn’t occur to you that if you do what the other person does, in reality you are no better than them.
In all things try to do good and always be reminded of these words of our Lord and Savior ”Whatsoever you do to the least of my brothers that you do unto me” You know even people who claim to be christian have not fully grasped this message of brotherly love and I will give you an example.
There was this christian? couple and I put the question sign because I really wonder. Anyway they had a house which they rented a family. Everything was okay initially but there came a time when the family began having financial problems and the rent was not always paid on time. The family was given notice to vacate the house, the reason being late payment of rent. Subsequently the family was evicted. All of their furniture was placed outside. As night approached the family wondered where they were going to spend the night.
This was a thought farthest from the mind of the owner of the house as he came and locked up the house leaving the family outside in the dark. He and his wife then left for church; no doubt to worship the very Lord ” who said whatsoever you do to the least of my brother that you do unto to me. When I was hungry you gave me to eat, when I was thirsty you gave me to drink , when I was homeless you gave me a home now enter into the home of my father.”
Let us try not to be like this couple for the greatest test we have to pass on this earth is that of loving one another and doing good to each other!
