Not Saying Goodbye

Capture13

 

Francis Allen led me to Jesus, and now it was nearly time for Francis to meet jesus face to face. I was at his home as it grew time for him to say goodbye. I wanted to say something memorable and meaningful.

For nearly an hour I stood by his bed. He laughed hard at the stories i told on myself. Then he got tired, we got serious, and he spent his energy rounding off some rough edges he still saw in my life. I listened, even as I tried to sort out how to say goodbye.

He stopped me before I got the chance, “You remember, Randy, What I’ve always told you. We have nothing to fear from the story of life because we know how it ends. I’m not afraid. You go do what I’ve taught you.” Those challenging words reminded me of what the apostle paul said to the believers in philippi :”Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me – Put it into practice”.

Francis had no fear in his heart.

If we care ennough for others who have not yet accepted God’s gift of forgiveness through Christ, we will find ways to share with them. With the confidence of our own faith and with tears of compassion, Let’s take the good news to those who need to know the savior.

Human!

Sometimes I feel “Happiness” is overrated. Sure, we need happiness in our life, but it’s just a part of what we are. WE also need sadness, and anger, and fear, and anxiety, and mistakes to be able to grow. We need multiple facets to be closer to completeness. I am thankful for the good people I have met in my life, but I am also thankful for the toxic and destructive people I have known. The toxic ones have offered me the greatest growth and offered me the greatest lessons in my life.

I am grateful for all the little accomplishments I have achieved so far, but I am also glad that I have had bad days too. Sometimes I win, but sometimes I learn. So if you are having a bad day, take a shower. Take five showers. And remember ‘ happiness’ is not the ultimate destination. You are not supposed to be ‘happy’ all the time. And when you feel the whole spectrum of emotions, and experience the positives and negatives alike, you are just getting closer to completeness, you are getting closer to being more “Human”. 

Blessed be to those, Who find glory in their weakness, promise in their strangeness, and

beauty in their broken       – Isra Al-Thibeh

Born to Love, Cursed to Feel

Capture10

 

Love begins when all sense of romance fades. it doesn’t back itself on fleeting feelings because however strong they were , they are trivial and unstable; they rely on wavering sensations , glamour and the stimulus. They’re never lasting. but love , True LOVE , transcends time. And pain. And suffering. It makes everything worth fighting for and worth all the sacrifices you’ve made. It forgives and makes amends. It takes patience and effort , a lot of it. Because noting of worth in life comes easy. It accepts all as they are; flaws , faults and strength alike. And it trusts.
Love , you see, is more than just a feeling , it is a sense of being. you are either in love or never in it

 

” You don’t fall out of love , you forfeit ”

You’re waiting for that little bit of hope to have a lifeline for all your patience and resilience to finally pay off , You’re waiting for that person to realize how good you are for them. Thing is , You can’t force someone to see what they don’t want to       – Samantha Kings

 

 

We’re too quick to blame ourselves when someone doesn’t love us.

That’s always seemed so ridiculous to me, that people want to be around someone because they’re pretty. It’s like picking your breakfast cereals based on color instead of taste.       – Paper Towns (John Green)

People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When i look at a sunset, I don’t find myself saying, ‘Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner’. I don’t try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds         – Carl Rogers

 

 

And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, Whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this sotrm’s all about       – Haruki Murakami

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you     – Matthew 7:7 (NIV bible)

 

 

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.       -1 Corinthians 13:4-7 (NIV bible)

What life really is,

This life is what you make it. No matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. People will be your friends – they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything – they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And well, I hate to say it, most of them – actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up because if you give up, you’ll never find your soul mate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.”

 

The Right One , Stays!

In a world trying to make you feel ugly, I’ll show you your beauty; the beauty that lies within, the beauty that you sometimes forget you have because of all the lies others have made you believe.
In a world trying to make you feel like a failure, I’ll remind you of your accomplishments, I’ll remind you of the days you fought so hard to be where you are today, I’ll remind you of the nights you couldn’t stop crying but you eventually found a way to smile again and I’ll remind you of how far you’ve come, how strong you are and how resilient you can be.

In a world trying to make you feel unloved, I’ll love you with all my heart. I’ll love you when you’re moody. I’ll love you when you’re weak. I’ll love you when you’re quiet. I’ll love you when you’re scared. I’ll love you when you’re lost and I’ll love you when you can’t name one single thing you love about yourself. I’ll write you a list of everything I love about you.
In a world trying to make you believe that everyone is shady, I’ll be the one thing that’s real. I’ll be kind. I’ll be genuine. I won’t take you for granted. I won’t only love you with conditions. I won’t walk out on you when you’re at your lowest. I won’t backstab you or disappoint you. I’ll always fight for you. I’ll always stand by you. I’ll always be on your side. We’ll always be on the same team, whether we win or lose. I’ll always be part of your team.

In a world trying to convince you that everyone is going to betray you, I’ll prove to you my loyalty time and time again. I’ll make you trust again. I’ll remind you that it’s okay to be vulnerable. I’ll remind you that not everyone you love will judge you. I’ll make you realize that history doesn’t always have to repeat itself. I’ll make you realize that some risks are worth taking and some chances can change your life. I’ll remind you that if you take a leap of faith, you can change your whole world. A world that makes you feel beautiful. A world that makes you feel safe. A world where you don’t have to worry about being alone, because I’ll always be right beside you.

Choose Yourself

Capture

 

It shouldn’t be a struggle to know if someone cares. It shouldn’t be a question. It shouldn’t be something that confuses you or causes you pain and it shouldn’t be that hard. It’s not rocket science. It’s not a secret. When someone cares, you’ll know because they’ll show you or they’ll tell you.

It shouldn’t be momentary. It shouldn’t only be when someone is drunk or vulnerable or when someone is going through a tough time and they need you. It shouldn’t be transient or short-lived. It shouldn’t depend on someone else’s mood.

When someone truly cares they never stop caring unless you really hurt them, but if someone chooses when to care and when not to care about you, they probably don’t genuinely care about you. They probably only care when it’s convenient for them.
It shouldn’t be something you have to ask for.
The truth is, if you have to constantly ask for someone’s attention, someone’s time, someone’s words, then you’re doing a lot more work than you should. You’re trying so hard to believe that the other person cares and you’re trying to make that happen somehow even if it means that you’ll be the one doing all the work.

The beauty of someone caring about you is that they can’t help it, they will always either meet you halfway or be one step ahead. You will just feel it, just like you know for sure your best friend cares about you.
Caring should always be concrete. Something palpable. It shouldn’t be a question. A riddle or something you constantly have to doubt or ask for.
You should just know – and if you don’t, maybe that is an answer within itself.
