Learn to take everything positively.

Things will fall in their right places at the right time, but the right time will not come if we don’t give efforts to push things to get near their right places.

Life is a matter of choice! Our greatest ability: the power to choose. God provided us with the cards of life, and it is our choice how we are going to deal with these life cards. There are choices that we may consider major or presume to be minor, still no choice can be considered insignificant — for it will define the quality of life we will have.

Depending on the choices we make; the acts we do — our lives can either be creative or destructive, successful or failure, happy or sad, truthful or dishonest — we are responsible for our lives!

Now is not forever.

Think about how good it will feel when it stops hurting…

Whether it was the pain of a broken heart or the misery of drawn-out illness, always remind yourself: Now is not forever.

God has something good planned for us. Suffering was not a part of His original act of creation, but it serves as a temporary reminder of what happens in a world where God’s order has been broken. Although we cannot avoid pain and disappointment, we know that it’s only temporary.

“There will be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away…” (Revelation 21:4)


There are some things in life that will make it hard for you to smile, but through all the pain — things you don’t want to happen — you have to accept it, and keep on smiling. There are things you don’t want to know, but you have to learn. And there are people you can’t live without, but you have to let go. You just have to believe that what happens is what’s supposed to happen, and, well, you can’t change that, even if you tried.

After a while, you just can’t cry anymore, so just dry the tears, and hope that tomorrow will be a better day. Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of good luck. Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness, and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests, whatever they may be, life would be more like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere — yes, it would be safe and comfortable, but dull and pointless.


There is a time for everything including happiness and sadness. God has a plan for us but sometimes we have to go through the fire again to quench our thirst for a relationship with Him…

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing.
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
