Follow love, not fear. Love yourself. You love yourself by choosing love. You do not get to love by carrying hate thoughts in your mind. And to spread your love around, you must carry love thoughts in your heart. Why is that?

Because you cannot give what you don’t have. If you don’t have love, you can’t give out love. It is in your heart that you must keep love. It is in your heart that you must plant the seeds of love. Do not just plant it there. If you don’t nurture it, if you don’t water it, it will die. Love is fragile.

Follow love, not fear. When you follow love, you can pursue what you want in your life. You can do what you want to do in your life. You can do what makes you happy. You can free yourself from fear. You can free yourself from your past. You can do what you have always wanted to do. When you follow love, you can face your fears. You can listen to the demons within you. You can become your real self.

Life is all about becoming you. It is about becoming whole. To do that, to become whole, you don’t need to change everything about you. All you need to do is to connect with your real self. The self within you. You can change a few things, but not everything. You can stop telling yourself false stories. You can stop feeding the things that are hurting you. You can stop living your old life. And you can change what is not working for you anymore, and replace them with positive habits. And to connect with your real self, you must be honest with yourself. Do not lie to yourself. It doesn’t help. It hurts.

The Precious Promises Of God

“The precious promises of God…”

“If you were to spend a month feeding on the precious promises of God, you would not be going about with your heads hanging down like bulrushes, complaining how poor you are; but you would lift up your heads with confidence, and proclaim the riches of His grace because you could not help it.”- Dwight L. Moody
