God’s Love

God’s love is unconditional. It is peaceful. If you are looking for love, real love, seek God’s love.

It is what you need when you are happy. God’s love is what you need when things are not going well. God’s love is what you need when your friends are gone.

Rely on God’s love. Do not worry about what your friends are saying about you. If you rely on God’s love, you have everything. You have life. You have yourself.

When things are down, when the road ahead is unknown, rely on God’s love. In his book Dwell on These Things: A Thirty-One- Day Challenge to Talk to Yourself Like God Talks to You, John Stange writes, “God’s love can be relied on when you’re in the middle of drama. God’s love can be relied on when your friends desert you. God’s love can be relied on when you’ve made major mistakes. God’s love can be relied on when you’re trying to bounce back from whatever’s got you down.”

Whatever you are going through, do not rely on people. They will disappoint you. They will desert you. They will live you where you are. But God will never live you alone. He believes in you. He just want you to trust yourself, to believe in yourself.

Do not worry about anything. Rely on God’s love. He will save you. He won’t run away from you. The question is, do you trust yourself?

“To Be Anything Else Is To Be A Coward”

The only person you can be in this world is you. No matter what, be yourself. Be real. No matter where you are, be yourself.

And the only way you can make peace with yourself is to be yourself. Ask yourself, “If I am not myself, who am I?”

You will do better things in your life if you are yourself, if you believe in yourself, if you love yourself, if you have faith in your future, if you are not afraid of the unknown.

Why? Because the future is unknown.

To be anything else is to be a fool, a coward. To be who you are not is to be a liar, a storyteller.

It does not matter what you are doing right now. If you want to do it really well, you must be yourself.

According to Ryan Holiday, “Be a cop. Be a soldier. Be a philosopher. Be another musician in a long tradition of rock music. Hold somebody’s hand. Just make sure that underneath, you are being yourself. That you are not letting fear shut you up or put your down. That you are not doing what everyone else is doing simply because they are doing it. Be original. Be yourself. To be anything else is to be a coward.”

You cannot connect with your true self if you are not honest with yourself. Because being your true self is being honest with yourself. Whatever you do, small or big, make sure that you are not faking it. Just make sure that you are doing it for you, not because others want you to do it.

Be you. Do not fake your life. Just be you.
