By Thandi Mphundi – Grade 12
Always pray to have eyes that see the best in people, a heart that forgives the worst, a mind that forgets the bad and a soul that never loses faith in God.
Always accept what is, let go of what was and have faith with what will be. As people, we tend to praise our Lord and Saviour in private to avoid judgement from non-believers. Jesus Christ died for us public, so why do we live for him in private
Even if you are a sinner you still have the ability to change other people’s lives and make them realise that God is there. Jesus Christ did not come to shame sinners but He came to save sinners. I am perfect in my imperfections, happy in my pain and strong in my weaknesses because I know that God is always on my side. Praise does not go by wealth but goes by your heart, spirit and faith.
Even though sometimes we may think that our prayers are not being heard, don’t worry, God is never blind to your tears, never deaf to your prayers and never silent to your pain. Don’t let the noise of the World keep you from hearing the voice of the Lord. A relationship with God is the most important relationship you can ever have, so you have to embrace it each and everyday.
Don’t look up to things of the World because you will be depressed, but look up to God and you will be blessed and impressed. Without Him, we are nobody and with Him, we are somebody. In Him, there is everything and if He was not there, there could have been nothing.
With Him, we move from zero to hero. His love is unconditional and everlasting. Always know that your problems are temporal and God is eternal!
