“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” ― Albert Einstein

"I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the pit of despair…He set my feet on solid ground…He has given me a new song to sing…" (Psalm 40:1-3, NLT).

Have you ever felt like you were in a pit of despair? Just like God lifted David out, God is going to lift you out. Where you are right now is not where you’re going to stay. There are brighter days up ahead for you filled with favor, promotion, and increase. As you walk uprightly before Him, no good thing will He withhold from you.

Notice that God gives us a new song. We have to do our part to sing that song. That means you don’t go around talking about your problems, how bad things are, or how you’re never going to make it. No, you have a song of victory! If somebody asks you how you’re doing, your attitude should be, “I’m too blessed to be stressed! I’m moving forward in strength and power.” Remember, praise precedes the victory, and the Bible tells us that God is enthroned on our praises. As you magnify and lift Him up, He will lift you up out of your despair. He’ll set your feet on solid ground, and you’ll move forward in joy and victory in every area of your life.

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you…" (Jeremiah 1:5, NIV)

What an amazing thought: God knew you before you were even born! He saw your unformed substance and said, “I have a purpose for this life. I have good plans for them!” Then He breathed His life into you and sent you through your mother and father. They may have had issues, but that doesn’t have to stop you from becoming all that God intended you to be. You have been handpicked by Almighty God to be here at this time in history!

Sometimes we hear parents say, “We weren’t expecting this child. They were a surprise. They were an accident.” No, that child may have been a surprise to you, but they weren’t a surprise to Almighty God. No child can be born without God breathing His life into them. You may think, ” I was unwanted. I was an unplanned pregnancy.” No, you wouldn’t be here if God didn’t give life to your seed.

In God’s eyes, there is no such thing as being illegitimate. Remember, He knew you before you were ever born! Find confidence in His love knowing that you are a person of destiny, and you are part of His mighty plan!

A Prayer for Today

Father, thank You for choosing me before I was ever born. Thank You for knowing me and revealing Yourself to me. I trust that You are working in my life today, even when I can’t see it. I stand in faith knowing that You have a mighty plan for me in Jesus’ name. Amen.

You deserve the kind of love you would give someone else.

When unexpected things happen — trials, difficulty or tragedy — the enemy sends a whirlwind of fear to try to shake our faith and steal our focus. His goal is to take our eyes off of God and cause us to feel overwhelmed by circumstances. But if we will choose to stay focused on the love of God, if we choose to meditate on His goodness, the truth will set us free from fear and ground our hearts in confidence.
Today, know that God loves you perfectly. He is a good God. Jeremiah 29:11 tells us that His plans for us are for good. He has thoughts of peace, not for evil. He wants to give you a future and hope. Anytime thoughts of fear come, replace them with words of love. Just declare, “Thank You, God, for loving me. Thank You for leading me into peace. Thank You for hope for my future.” As you meditate on His love and goodness, you’ll feel faith rise up in your heart. You’ll feel hope, you’ll feel strength, and you’ll feel empowered to move forward in the good path He has prepared for you.

I had known loneliness before, and emptiness upon the moor, but I had never been a NOTHING, a nothing floating on a nothing, known by nothing, lonelier and colder than the space between the stars. It was more frightening than being dead.

Thought via Path

I get tired of talking when i want to be silent.. – Read on Path.

There is a law of the natural worlds (the spiritual and the physical) and this is something I have understood: that for every genuine existence, for every real manifestation and occurrence, there are are ten thousand falsities. Before you meet what or who is genuine, you will first have met, or known of, what is fake; and ten thousand times so! There is no need to feel disappointments, any number below ten thousand deceptions renders you a lucky person! And you ask why is there a need for this to happen? Well, if you have not known what is false first, there is no way to understand what then comes which is truth. What is lesser is so afraid of what is genuine, that it finds it necessary to imitate and duplicate that imitation ten thousand times over, for fear that you will finally meet what is real. The more important that one existence is, the more imitations there are in the world.

How To Release Negative Energy

psych-quotes

Keeping negative emotions like stress, sadness, anger and frustration inside of us is a recipe for disaster. It’s only a matter of time before they build up so much that we blow up or have a total meltdown. It’s much healthier to find ways to release negative energy as we are experiencing it so that we can get it out of our system and move on to better things. Here are some ways to release negative energy:
Write it out. Get rid of anger and frustration that you feel towards someone by writing them an angry letter or email – just don’t send it. Tell them everything that’s on your mind – don’t hold back. Writing out how you’re feeling is an excellent way of releasing emotions. Pour your heart out and then delete it or tear it up. You’ll feel so much better after getting it out of your system.
Work out. Any kind of physical activity is a great way of blowing off steam, and it fills you up with positive endorphins instead of negative emotions. Anything you can do that’s healthy and positive and makes you look and feel better is a bonus. Not only are you blowing off steam and getting rid of tension, but you’re doing something good for yourself too.
Vent. Find a friend or someone you can sit down with and vent to. Get it all out in the open and tell them how you’re feeling. Explain your frustrations and you’ll feel yourself starting to feel better as you talk. Voicing your feelings is a great way to feel validated and heard, even if you’re not talking to the person that you’re upset with. Try not to make it a constant topic of conversation though, because you don’t want to dwell on the negativity.
Feel it. You can’t take shortcuts around your emotions; you need to walk straight through them. Ignoring them only postpones them. If you really want to free yourself from negative emotions you need to experience them. So go ahead and feel angry, allow yourself to be sad or give yourself permission to be hurt – just set a time limit so you don’t get stuck there. Promise yourself that when the time is up you will move forward.
Get creative. So many great pieces of art, music and writing were inspired by suffering, heartbreak and anger. So use your emotions as a creative catalyst and throw yourself into something that allows you to express your emotions. Even if you’re not the next Picasso you can still enjoy the benefits of releasing negativity through something creative such as art.
