Different seasons

4459B78F-360B-4AFB-A3E5-9A6DF8EF430EThere was a man who had four sons. He wanted his sons to learn not to judge things too quickly. So he sent them each on a quest; in turn to go and look at a pear tree which was a great distance away. The first son went in the winter; then the second went in the spring, the third son went in summer and the youngest son went in the fall. When they had all gone and come back, he called them together to describe what they had seen. The first son said that the tree was ugly bent and twisted. The second son said, “no it was covered with green buds and full of promise”. The third son disagreed; he said it was laden with blossoms that smelled so sweet and looked so beautiful, it was the most graceful thing he had ever seen. The last son disagreed with all of them; he said it was ripe and drooping with fruit, full of life and fulfillment. The man then explained to his sons that they were all right, because they had each seen but only one season in the tree’s life. He told them that you cannot judge a tree, or a person, by only one season. The essence of who they are; the pleasure, joy, and love that come from that life can only be measured at the end, when all the seasons are up. If you give up when it’s winter, you will miss the promise of your spring, the beauty of your summer, fulfillment of your fall.

Moral: Don’t let the pain of one season destroy the joy of all the rest. Don’t judge life by one difficult season. Persevere through the difficult patches and better times are sure to come some time or later.

 

God fights our battles

8FAD3E8E-BFB7-4BB4-9877-2B5A3F0060B8When a young man got to his house, he realized he lost his key to unlock the door. He went to the 24 hour lock smith near by. But to his surprise the place was closed. He then went to hardware near by to buy a hammer so that he could break the key. But the place was closed also. Which key am talking about?I am talking about the problems you are facing right now. That’s the padlock I’m talking about. The lock smith I’m talking about are the traditional healers and false prophets. The man thought for a while. There is a being called GOD let me pray. After praying the door was open. The padlock was not unlocked, but it was broken. My brother, my sister God never fails, there might be a padlock in your life you have been trying to unlock for years. Give it to God, He fights our battles. Don’t be discouraged, anxious and feel hopeless, God is in control Hallelujah!

What is life

[CooL GuY] {{a2zRG}}

WHAT IS LIFE?

A man is born today, tomorrow he is dead.
A man lives in a mansion today, tomorrow he lives
underground.
A man drives a car today, tomorrow an ambulance
drives him.
A man reads biology today, tomorrow a biography
is been read of him.
A man eats whatever he wants today, tomorrow he
becomes food for insects.
A man is always early for work today, tomorrow he
is termed late Mr/Mrs/Miss
A man is seen resting in his house today, tomorrow he is resting in a coffin. And they say “Rest In Peace”!
A man eats all kinds of fruits in his house today,
tomorrow he becomes manure to those trees.
A man is known today as the richest man ever,
tomorrow he doesn’t even know where or what will
happen to his riches.

WHAT LIFE IS AFTER ALL:

Plan your life because you may not see tomorrow.
But when your life is well planned you won’t be
afraid of anything.

ACT RIGHT AND LIVE GODLY. ALWAYS BE A HELPING HAND TO OTHERS.

Come to think of this?…….
1. Eternal life = free
2. Church entrance = free
3. Christ’s salvation = free
4. God’s love = free
5. Breath of life = free

A. Cigarette = pay
B. Prostitution = pay
C. Alcohol = pay
D. Nightclub entrance fee = pay
E. Powers to rule the world = pay

Then why are people paying for hell while PARADISE is free?

Think twice!!

Believe in Christ and you shall be saved.

1 John 2:17 The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever
1 John 2:25 And this is what He promised us–eternal life
1 John 17:3 And this is the way to have eternal life–to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth.

Strength and courage

0C3AE635-3B74-4E43-A84B-58D96341A1D1It takes strength to be certain,
It takes courage to have doubts.
It takes strength to fit in,
It takes courage to stand out.
It takes strength to share a friend’s pain,
It takes courage to feel your own pain.
It takes strength to hide your own pain,
It takes courage to show it and deal with it.
It takes strength to stand guard,
It takes courage to let down your guard.
It takes strength to conquer,
It takes courage to surrender.
It takes strength to endure abuse,
It takes courage to stop it.
It takes strength to stand alone,
It takes courage to lean on a friend.
It takes strength to love,
It takes courage to be loved.
It takes strength to survive,
It takes courage to live.
