“When whispers do not get your attention, bricks will fly your way. Don’t speed through life so fast that someone has to throw a brick at you to get your attention. Slow down and be present.”—God Wants You To Know
“Sleep and rest are all part of the divine order. Don’t make your waking life and responsibilities so important that you neglect the very real benefits of sleep, rest, and dreaming. The night is your time of restoration. It is essential. God made both day and night for a reason.”—God Wants You To Know
“It’s okay to receive. Have you been the giver for so long that you have forgotten how to receive? Allow others to give you some of the love that you give so freely. Seek a balance between your giving and your receiving.”—God Wants You To Know
“Wealth does not come from your bank account, wealth comes from the depth of your heart. What you really want is happiness. You might believe that a fat bank account will get you there, but that’s false. Happy people are happy rich or poor, unhappy people are unhappy rich or poor. Money simply masks your real being by giving you activities to occupy your mind. Don’t fool yourself, recession or not, your true wealth comes from your heart and is always only there.”—God Wants You To Know
Finally I got time to have this entry! :D This playlist had been my good friend last Summer. From “me” time to road trips with friends, this is a great and fun tunes to play! These songs are pop, rock, and mellow vibe-y perfect for a sunny day or a cold summer night outlook! Xx SH
Why is our world so hung up on appearances? Why do we insist on judging people by their “covers” and never bother to find out what they’re really about? Why do we raise our noses when we pass by someone who is dressed wrong? Why do we ignore someone’s answer to a question because of the way she talks? Why do we pretend not to see the guy with the glasses and the pocket protector? Why are we so insecure about ourselves that we have to make an outcast of anyone who is different? First Samuel 16:7 says that God does not judge by outward appearance; He looks at the heart. Why can’t we learn to do the same thing? It seems ridiculous that people will shun some guy because he is “too tall” or “too skinny” or “too short” or “not muscular enough”— but it happens a lot and girls are discarded because they’re “too flat,” “too tall,” “too chubby,” “too skinny.” This kind of judgment happens at school and at church. It influences our decisions on who gets to join clubs, who gets to be a cheerleader or the class president. But it gets really bad when we start looking for people to date or even to marry. I may be prejudiced here, but I see it happens more with guys than with girls. I know, you guys are more visually oriented, and I can’t completely understand that but if you base your opinion of a girl’s value solely on the way she looks, you are being deceived. There are tons of women who can’t get operations, starve themselves, get their hair dyed, and so on. Good-looking women aren’t that hard to find! But it can be very difficult to find a woman who truly has a heart for God. You cannot go out and buy one of those. If you pass up a girl because she does not fit your blonde-haired, blue-eyed, perfect mold, then you may end up the loser. But women do this tool if we are passing guys off just because they do not work out enough or because they cannot gain weight or because they have a crazy-looking haircut, then we’re not only being shallow and superficial, but we may be missing out on someone great. I’m tired of seeing it happen. I am tired of catching myself doing it, and I am tired of having others do it to me. If appearances are what we value in others, then we might as well give up on human beings and spend our time playing with Barbie and Ken dolls!. If we only love at surface level, we’ll always have a loneliness inside because we’ll never learn to connect with others on a deeper level. I’m not just talking about the way we judge others.. learning to love also means learning to accept ourselves just as we are..to value our “contents” as well as our “cover” and work to be beautiful on the inside as well as on the outside. After all, the person inside is the person God loves. And He judges our lives by the book, not by the cover!
