SMILE

             (A GIFT TO SHARE “☺ “)

How do you respond when you are given a beaming smile?, you mostly smile back and probably feel happier too. 

Genuine smiles, whether from friends, a family member or total strangers are infectious and evoke good feelings. A sincere smile indicates positive emotions such as amusement, happiness and pleasure. 

Smile, indeed is built into our nature. You do yourself a favor when you smile, it increases your confidence and reduce feelings of stress. 

Perhaps, you may feel that life’s anxieties give you little cause for smiling. Remember, though, that feelings are usually preceded by thought. (Philippians 4:8,9).

As hard as it may seem, try dwelling on positive and pleasant things whenever possible. Do not wait for others to smile at you. Take the initiative – add a little happiness to someone else’s day. 

See your smile for what it really is; a divine gift that enriches you and the people around you. 

KEY: the words “Happy” and “joy” and their derivatives occur hundreds of times in the Bible. Try reading a page or two, who knows? You may also find yourself smiling more often.

  • Philippines 4:6,7.

WELCOME TO YOURSELF

ENEMIES OF THE HEART

QUILT AND ANGER

PhotoCredit: Pinterest

We get angry when we don’t get what we want or when we’ve been hurt by our loved ones.

We all know people whose anger could be verbalized in one of the following: “You took the best years of my life”, “you owe me an opportunity to try”, ” you owe me a second chance “, ” you owe me affection “, ” you took my reputation “.

The root of anger is the perception that something has been taken. What debt is causing the anger you feel?, Anger can take up residence in the heart and live there for years.

I’d like to propose that today should be the day when you quit holding on to hurt. While it’s true that you cannot undo what’s been done, it’s equally true that you don’t have to let the past control your future. Forgetting the past requires mental and spiritual discipline. ( Ephesians 4:26&30-32).

WHAT ARE YOU ANGRY AT?

You can feel guilty when you regret something you have done or said that you cannot take back. It might feel like your conscience is reminding you about what happened. If you feel guilty about something specific, you could make a deal with yourself to do something about it. Do not let guilt consume your thoughts and heart.

The only remedy to rid yourself of guilt and anger is FORGIVENESS.

Forgive yourself and whom ever you have hurt or has hurt you. If you regard iniquity in your heart, you put yourself in prison, if you forgive yourself and others, you set yourself free. ( Do not cling to events of the past or dwell on what happened long ago- Isaiah 43:18).

SILENCE

Silence

Words without sound

In silence I loved him

Love without a song

In silence I have lost him

In silence I’ve longed for his hand

And in silence I’ve met emptiness

Leaving me out cold

Torn and broken

Rejected and scarred

Lifeless and alone

In silence I fell

And in silence I heard my own heart breaking

I loved you once upon a time

But the silence killed us…..

TRAPPED INSIDE HER

I guess I got caught up
In the rough and tumble

I didn’t mean to cause no trouble

At all……. 

I’m just so sick

Of the dream they’re selling 

It doesn’t feel like heaven

At all…..

I fell in love with fear
Oh God, forgive me
Have mercy on me
It’s not easy here
Hey, please excuse the mess
See, I just wanna feel
I mean really, really feel
It all…….

So give me something
Oh please God, give me something
I can believe in…….

WORDS – (EMELI SANDE) .Give me something… 

LOST GIRL (LETTING GO) 

     I am trying to find my way back to myself, I had to let go and keep my distance because you were never mine. I fell in love when we were together and even when we were no more, I fell deeper in love in the months we were apart. 

But I guess you do not understand. The worst of it all, I am finding it hard to be with someone else. My heart never seem to trust my mind. I have come to love you so much, even when I tried so hard not to. I could not help but to love. No matter  how much I wanted to be dissapointed, I could not. But then my soul wants to be free, free from the pain inside of me. 

I feel like you have a hold of me. This is not me, my heart is out my chest, wondering about, looking for a solution. I do not even know  what I feel anymore. IF IT IS FEAR OR LOVE. I want to be happy again. 

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 

Surprisingly, my mind started telling my heart; 

If you expect the worse, you are only denying someone a chance to be better. 

Some things can be fixed, lots of them but unlike relationships, just like an egg, cannot be put together, when broken. 

Many times, relationships between people cannot be fixed because they should not be FIXED. We are just too stubborn to let go of the things that is long gone. 

I think all ex’S  should be given a second chance, but with somebody else. 

Letting go does not mean you love them any less, it shows that you value yourself more than they did.

ACTIONS REVEALS MORE THAN SAID. 

Some words are not to be trustedActions always reveals more than is said. Sometimes, you need to spend a little more time with someone who says hes/shes fine. How they act shows their true intentions and feelings more clearly than what they say

Words can be said easily, but one cannot fake actions. People may not always tell you how they feel; how sad and depressed they are, but they will always show you through their actions. You just need to  PAY ATTENTION. 

 Someone needs your help today;….Be There!!!….
