Just recently our youngest son graduated from University. We all meet up in the US to attend his graduation ceremony. We had a most exciting, happy and memorable five (5) days together as a family. It made me realize that meeting up the whole family will be rare these days knowing that each child is working in a different continent and timing their work vacations will be hard. And gathering them all again in one roof will be much harder. But one thing is for sure, we can always be in touch with each other through whats up, wechat, facetime, etc. After all, family is family – we will always be there for each other.
So for all those families with small children, hug them, embrace them, have bonding times together as a family because when they all grow up it will be different.
Every morning when we wake up after we have said our prayers we need to make affirmations so that the rest of the day will be a beautiful one. Positive thoughts begets positive attitude. One has to be positive all the time. In order for us to attract good vibes we should always smile and think positive. If you agree with me then say this every morning. So you will have a good day.
DONT WORRY ABOUT ANYTHING. INSTEAD, PRAY ABOUT EVERYTHING.TELL GOD WHAT YOU NEED AND THANK HIM FOR ALL HE HAS DONE. THEN YOU WILL EXPERIENCE GOD’S PEACE, WHICH EXCEEDS ANYTHING WE CAN UNDERSTAND.HIS PEACE WILL GUARD YOUR HEARTS AND MINDS AS YOU LIVE IN CHRIST JESUS.
Oftentimes, we are too anxious or stressed out about something. What must we do when we feel those things? We need to pray and lift up everything to God. I do that, when i am anxious or stressed out about things in my life i PRAY to God and lift up everything. Then i feel at peace and then allow God’s will to be done in my life. Then i feel happy and able to do things as they come. How about you? Do you do that?
We should always be in a habit of pausing when things are turning out bad. But when you Pause and think for awhile make sure to utter a little prayer to God and He will be in control. Try it, i assure you all will be well. And you will learn how to react to a situation.
“I have given you a model to follow, so that as I have done for you, you should also do.” – John 13:15
Today’s beautiful message gives us a humbling experience. Imagine, Jesus who was their Master washed the disciple’s feet. Jesus as our model is so hard to follow specially if we always put out selfish motives upfront. But if we deny ourselves and serve others with love then and only then we can follow what Jesus did.
Sometimes, it is so hard to be of service to people around us, specially our family. We are so full of pride and arrogance that we forget to follow what Jesus did.
Let us always look back and reflect on what Jesus did during the last supper. If He can do it, surely we can do it too. By God’s grace I pray that we all be serving others specially our family with LOVE.
