Take A Look At Yourself

Dearly Beloved,

Don’t let the opinions of others consume you. Life is too short to let your circumstances and opinions of others determine your joy. Don’t be moved by what somebody else, even if it’s a relative thinks that you should do or become. Be directed and be led by the Holy Ghost. You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood and you are peculiar! Be consumed but God’s truth instead of people’s opinions. The Glory of God is embedded right inside you! You were bought with a price. You are not ordinary.

Better Days Are Coming

Dear Someone,

I want you to know that irrespective of what your circumstances may look like today, God is not surprised at the mess you made in your life. God is not surprised at our mistakes. God is not surprised at what is happening to you. God is not surprised at how long things may be taking. God is not surprised at your weaknesses. God is not surprised at the blessings you enjoy. God is not surprised at the things that have shaken your life. God is not surprised about the gossip and slander going on about you. God is not surprised at anything today.

Time and Chance

You don’t meet people by accident. Never take advantage of the people in your life, you may never find them again. Look back in life at the people God sent your way and you took advantage of them. They have all gone and living their separate lives, but you may never meet them again. You don’t meet people by accident. There is always a reason – a lesson or a blessing. There’s no such thing as a coincidence.

Remember Who Was There For You

Dear Someone,

I want you to always remember who was there for you when NO ONE else was. Remember who was there for you when you were at your lowest. Remember who was there for you when you didn’t have anything. Remember who was there for you when you needed a shoulder to cry on. Remember who was there for you when you felt the weakest and not who’s there to have a good time

No matter what you have been through, remember those that were there for you when your world or marriage was like a silent hell. Remember those that were there for you when times were tough. Not everyone actually cares for you the way YOU think they do. Remember those that were there for you when everybody else turned their back on you. Remember those that were there for you when everything around you was falling apart. Remember those that were there for you when no one else wanted to be there and those that answered your call at 2 am when you were loosing it.

Never ignore a person who loves you and cares for you. Keep them close, for such people are rare.

In Him,
~Ali Papa.
