There was this story I heard a while ago and I thought I’d share it with you guys , so here it goes.
Once upon a time in a little village, there lived an eight year old boy named John , ever since he was young he was always told that “faith as small as a Mustard seed can move mountains”.
John never believed this but he started believing recently and could easily measure his faith to a bit more than a Mustard seed .
One day while going on a trip to visit his aunt , he passed by a mountain and remembered the saying so he looked at the mountain and said “my faith is probably more than a Mustard Seed so I should be able to tell this mountain to move ” so he told the mountain to move but nothing happened , he was dissapointed but he pushed it off his mind .
After two months of staying at his aunt’s place little John was on his way back home , he didn’t see the mountain but in it’s place was a house.
He couldn’t believe it but the saying was surprisingly true.
“Faith as small as a Mustard Seed can move mountains”.
At times we find ourselves in situations that it’s so hard to tell if what we want to do is right or wrong . At times like this it seems that the line between right and wrong is soo thin that we can cross it without knowing and land in the wrong side. Here are six questions that you could ask yourself before doing anything, when you find yourself in a similar situation.
WILL I BE HAPPY IF I DO THIS: The type of happiness I mean is that will you have inner peace of you do what you want to do. You need to ask yourself that will doing this create guilt in your heart or an inner happiness , if you will then go ahead but if you won’t then I advice you to not do it.
WILL I BE ASHAMED IF PEOPLE HEARD: There is no way that you will be ashamed if people heard that you did a good thing . So if you’ll be ashamed it’s a sure sign that what you want to do is wrong.
WILL I BE PROUD OF IT.
WILL IT SET A GOOD EXAMPLE FOR OTHERS TO FOLLOW: You have to ask yourself that if you saw someone doing what you want to do will you be happy that you were the one who led the example . Before you do anything, you have to ask yourself if it’ll be a good example to those who are looking up to you. I know you might say no one looks up to you but you have no idea that someone out there is secretly getting advice from your character.
IF PEOPLE WERE LOOKING AT ME WOULD I STILL DO IT: If you were stealing , of course you wouldn’t want anyone to see you doing it , but if you were reading a book you wouldn’t care who saw you. If you know that people seeing you do it will be a problem then don’t do it.
WILL GOD BE PLEASED WITH YOU: Last but not the least. You have to ask the most important question which is”as I’m doing this or if I do this will GOD be pleased with me or will HE be disappointed. You could also ask yourself if it is in line with the gospel.
thank you for reading this I hope it spoke to you . If you have any question to add or any thing to add or say please comment.
It’s my last week at work and I’ve been thinking and asking myself over and over again “what can I take?”.
I looked at the flowers and thought of plucking a few, the free sanitizers and hand lotions also caught my eye.
I looked at our products and each one was just so beautiful but I told myself that I’ll pick just one thing .
Then I heard this voice or just got this feeling in me ; saying ” instead of thinking of what you can take , why don’t you think about what you have given”.
Many a times we only think of what we can gain from a situation, person or people, meanwhile the real question should be “how can I help?”, “what can I contribute?” or in my case I should be asking myself ” what have I acheived here?” , ” will my presence be missed?” , “what good thing will I be remembered by?”, “did I contribute at all?” .
I often make this mistake of asking the wrong questions and I want to stop, do you?
If we were having coffee right now, I’d be delighted . I would smile at you and tell you look nice .
If we were having coffee,
I would tell you how much I love my family , how much they’ve been there for me through all the phases I’ve gone through. I would tell you how I feel like I must be successful just for the sake of my wonderful family.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that there are a lot of things I regret doing. I would tell you never to give up in life ,to always keep going, because just the fact that you wake up everyday is something to be thanking for .
I would listen to you talk about yourself and give you all the advice I can think of .
I would go on and on about the need for a good prayer life and a good relationship with GOD.
I saw this quote today and guess the first thing that came to my mind . You probably won’t be able to guess it so I’ll give you a hint .
It was a movie . Money heist.
Maybe it’s because I saw the words fortune and crime together so I couldn’t help but remember money heist.
Talking about the movie don’t you think it was awesome the way the writers of the movie made us fall in love with criminals, I know they had a plan to not kill anyone and they were basically printing they’re own money but it wasn’t their resources to use.
Don’t get me wrong I’m a huge fan of the series and of proffesors plan but don’t you all think it’s weird that we were all wishing for the criminals to succeed which makes me wonder where they the heroes or the villians.
Have you ever thought about it, if you have please kindly express your thoughts in the comment box . Once again thanks for reading this.😘
I write because I like to write, it’s calming . It makes me feel like I’m in charge , like I can create anything anyhow I want. Writing is a means of escape for me from the real world , from the world where I can’t control to a world where I’m in total control. With a pen and paper I feel alive. I also write because I have a lot of things going on in my head ,a lot of thoughts , ideas and imaginations, writing is a way to get it all out .
