Be of firm faith

Life has its moments. Sometimes up and other times down. In this wave like life, we need to be of firm faith. You cannot afford to falter your faith anytime. The hope of a better morrow is what spurs us on, despite adversity. So keep it up, always, never forgetting that there is somebody out there who is witness to all your trials and tribulations. Keep hustling while you are at it, even when hope seems to simmer. Be sure that times are going to change and we have to keep pace with it. What seems to be a down moment is a lesson to be learned. If we don’t, we are condemned to repeat it. The future will happen when it does, so don’t be anxious about it. Whatever it is that you have dreamed of, is bound to manifest. Just in a matter of time.

In the meanwhile, hold on to your paddles with full strength. Row as much as you can, with full faith. You will soon realize that every cloud has its silver lining. And yours is quite near. You are almost there. Don’t give up in between. Take a break, if you will. But return back with an arduous attitude. Keep up to what you do best. Your time is going to come. Every single one of us is unique. We all have our strengths and fallacies. If there is a word that sums up what we have to do, it is ‘contribute’. Give with all your might. Whatever you can. To as many people as you can. Whenever you can. And you will find that receiving is in giving. Let me repeat that. In giving, we receive.

Tough times make people tough. They are there, so that we may change our outlook to life. So be flexible always. Do not drown in dogmas. Or anything  that can prove detrimental. This life is a gift to cherish forever. Make good use of this gift  that  has been give to you. Leave a legacy behind, before you exit out into other worlds. We are in control of our life. Like an artist who puts pastels onto the painting, to make it look good, we also have to give meaning to this life, the way we want it. Challenges are there. That’s what makes the ride fun. If we could easily get what we wanted, then life wouldn’t be that much fun. So collect all those colors together and paint to your heart’s content.

The best part about this life is that we get many chances. We learn through trial and error. Once we set our mind to a goal, while we are at it, we find the attributes of the goal changing and maybe the outcome is not exactly as we had contemplated. But be sure, that’s the way it is meant to be. Maybe the original dream that you saw was incomplete. Never mind, God fills in the gaps. As always. Whatever may be the stage of life that we are in, we need to remember one thing: Never to lose faith in God. Thank him for what he has already given you and more that he will send towards you. Dream big. Because for him, there is nothing in this universe which he cannot bring to life. Life is his gift. Have faith in him and then start walking. That is all there is to it.

To your dreams …
