… Belief in God isn’t blindly based on acceptance of the Bible as truth, or simply because the argument makes sense, but because when we begin to truly look for him, we begin to find him ever…
Corruption is bad.
As a carpenter went home after shutting down his workshop, a black poisonous cobra entered his workshop.
The cobra was hungry and hoped to find its supper lurking somewhere within. It slithered from one end to another and finally bumped into an axe and got very slightly injured.
In anger and revenge, the snake bit the axe with full force. What could a bite do to a metallic axe? Instead the cobra ‘s mouth started bleeding.
Out of fury and arrogance, the cobra tried it’s best to strangle and kill the object that was causing it pain by wrapping itself around the axe.
The next day when the carpenter opened the workshop, he found a dead cobra wrapped around the axe blades. The cobra didn’t die because of someone else’s fault but faced these consequences merely because of it’s own anger and wrath.
Sometimes when angry, we try to cause harm to others but as the time passes by, we realise that we have caused more harm to ourselves.
For a happy life, it’s best we should ignore and overlook things, people, incidents, affairs and matters.
It is not necessary that we show a reaction to everything. Step back and ask yourself if the matter is really worth responding to .
People who show no inclination to change, are best handled with prayer.
Good day my friends.
Everyone needs forgiveness. On the other hand, everyone needs to offer forgiveness too. And ‘everyone’ includes you! “If there is no offence, there will be no forgiveness,”…

TOPIC: It DOESN’T really MATTER
1st Published September 4, 2011 at 8:13am
Understand that we live in a world full of people who are ready to condemn you, despise you, reject, oppress you and are eager to frustrate your efforts to the top of your career and destiny. It is worthwhile to endure present challenging circumstances and wisely handle tantrums hurled at you, sometimes even for doing what your know to be your sincere best.
At those moments in life, self-motivation is best solution. Even David our father in Faith the man after God’s own heart, was misunderstood, condemned, scorned for some situations beyond his own reach and control, the scripture says “And David was greatly distressed; …because the soul of all the people was grieved, …but David encouraged himself in the Lord his God”.1 Samuel 30:6 (KJV)

Eight things to remember when everything goes wrong
Happiness is not the absence of problems, but the ability to deal with them. Imagine all the wondrous things your mind might embrace if it weren’t wrapped so tightly around your struggles. Always look at what you have, instead of what you have lost. Because it’s not what the world takes away from you that counts; it’s what you do with what you have left.
Here are a few reminders to help motivate you when you need it most:
💢1. *Pain is part of growing*
Sometimes life closes doors because it’s time to move forward. And that’s a good thing because we often won’t move unless circumstances force us to. When times are tough, remind yourself that no pain comes without a purpose.
💢2. *Everything in life is temporary*
After darkness there is always light – you are reminded of this every morning, but still you often forget, and instead choose to believe that the night will last forever. It won’t. Nothing lasts for ever. If things are bad, don’t worry because it won’t last forever either.
💢3. *Worrying and complaining changes nothing*
Those who complain the most, accomplish the least. It’s always better to attempt to do something great and fail than to attempt to do nothing and succeed.
💢4. *Your scars are symbols of your strength*
Don’t ever be ashamed of the scars life has left you with. A scar means the hurt is over and the wound is closed. It means you conquered the pain, learned a lesson, grew stronger, and moved forward.
💢5. *Every little struggle is a step forward*
In life, patience is not about waiting; it’s the ability to keep a good attitude while working hard on your dreams, knowing that the work is worth it. So if you’re going to try, put in the time and go all the way. Otherwise, there’s no point in starting.
💢6. *Other people’s negativity is not your problem*
Be positive when negativity surrounds you. Smile when others try to bring you down. It’s an easy way to maintain your enthusiasm and focus. When other people treat you poorly, keep being you. Don’t ever let someone else’s bitterness change the person you are.
💢 7. *What’s meant to be will eventually, BE*
You can’t force things to happen. You can only drive yourself crazy trying. At some point you have to let go and let what’s meant to be, BE. In the end, loving your life is about trusting your intuition, taking chances, losing and finding happiness, cherishing the memories, and learning through experience. It’s a long-term journey.
💢 8. *The best thing you can do is to keep going*
Don’t be afraid to get back up. Don’t be afraid to love again. Don’t let the cracks in your heart turn to hardened scar tissue. Find the strength to laugh every day. Find the courage to feel different, yet beautiful. Find it in your heart to make others smile too. God help us to keep our focus on HIM. In times like this, God is closer than we think, and he is working extra-ordinarily to take us to a glorious height. Stay blessed.
People literally spend millions and millions of dollars every year on beauty aids, enhancements, and surgeries just so they can look younger, prettier, sexier, etc. The sad thing is this: no matter how much time and effort a person tries to make themselves appear younger or look better, they will still get old…in other words…you can’t beat Mother Nature.

So…what should a person focus their time and energy on each day? The answer is this…THEIR HEART because this is what a person is REALLY made of. The following story is a terrific example of this concept. It illustrates to us in a picturesque way about the true beauty of an individual.
One day, in a heavily crowded place, a young man was shouting at the crowd.
“People look at me; I have the most beautiful heart in the world.”
Many people looked at him and were stunned to see the beautiful heart in a perfect shape, no little flaw, which looked quite amazing. Most of the people who saw his heart was mesmerized by the beauty of his heart and praised him.
However, there came an old man and challenged the young man, “No my son, I have got the most beautiful heart in the world!”
The young man asked, “Show me your heart, then!”
The old man showed his heart to him. It was very rough, uneven, and had scars all over the heart. Also, the heart was not in shape, appeared like bits and pieces joined together in various colors. There were some rough edges, some part of the heart were removed and filled with other pieces.
The heart of the old man simply looked like various pieces of heart joined together and formed as a heart.
The young man started laughing at his heart, “My dear old man, are you mad? See, my heart! How beautiful and flawless it is. You cannot find even a bit of imperfection in my heart. See, yours. It is full of scars, wounds and blemishes. How can you say your heart is beautiful?”
“Dear boy, my heart is just so beautiful as your heart is. Did you see the scars? Each scar represents the love I shared with a person. I share a piece of heart with others when I share love and in return I get a piece of heart, which I fix at the place where I had torn a piece!” said the old man.
The young man was shocked.
And the old man continued. “Since the pieces of heart I shared were neither equal nor in the same shape or size, my heart is full of uneven edges and bits and pieces.” “My heart is not in shape because sometimes I never get the love in return from those I gave it. So where do you see the real beauty? Your heart which looks fresh and fuller with no scars which indicates you never shared love with anybody. Did you?”
The young man stood still and never spoke a word. Tears rolled down his cheeks. He walked to the old man, tore a piece of his heart and gave the piece to the old man.
Many people give importance and respect to physical beauty. Yet, physical appearance isn’t the real beauty…the heart is! Like the old adage says: “Beauty really is only skin deep!”
is the best exercise!!! 🚶
*Walk Away* 🚶 from
arguments that lead you to nowhere but anger.
*Walk Away* 🚶 from
people who deliberately put you down.
*Walk Away* 🚶 from
any thought that reduces your worth.
*Walk Away* 🚶 from
failures and fears that stiffle your dreams.
*Walk Away* 🚶 from
people who do not care for you and who are opportunistic.
The more you
*Walk Away* 🚶 from
things that poison your soul,
The Happier Your Life Will Be.
*Give Yourself A Walk*🚶
Towards Happiness and ur GOAL setting.
How many times does a baby fall before he learns to walk?
He does not say, “Why is God doing this to me?” nor declare himself a failure.
He just gets up and tries again and again until he learns to walk.
How quick we are to complain when things do not go the way we want, blaming others or even ourselves not understanding that the many falls strengthen us, make us stronger until at last we walk with firm serenity.

This is from Cardiologist
Please give your 2min and read this:-
1 Let’s say it’s 7.25pm and you’re going home (alone of course) after an unusually hard day on the job.
2 You’re really tired, upset and frustrated.
3 Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up in to your jaw. You are only about five km from the hospital nearest your home.
4 Unfortunately you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far.
5 You have been trained in CPR, but the guy who taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself.
6 HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE?
Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only
about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.
7 However, these victims can help themselves by coughing
repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest.
A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two
seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until
the heart is felt to be beating normally again.
8 Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing
movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital.
