On this day of my life, I received a message from God … that decision is only wishful thinking until I take that first irreversible step. I can tell myself that I have already decided, that nothing now can stop me, but if that step backwards is so much safer than step forwards, what will hold me true to my path when the going gets tough? Sometimes, the right thing to do is to take that first irreversible step, the one after which I cannot go back. And now, for me, is one of those times.

God wants me to know … that every time i pretend to love, i impoverish myself more and more.
Love has great potential to enrich my life. But if i am just playing a role, pretending to love, it will only going to poison myself. Because i am teaching myself that it’s just a game, and slowly but surely i will lose the capacity to open in love.

On this day of my life, I believe God wants me to know … that there is a time and a season for everything.
It may be a time of new beginnings, a time of growth, a time of reaping the harvest of hard work, or a time of rest. Trust this beautiful order. Everything in its time.

On this day of my life, I believe God wants me to know … that doubt is the rust of life.
Doubt holds me landlocked in paralysis unable to move either way.
The time I spent doubting is the time I am not alive.
So, I should rid myself of the doubt, i’ll take that step one way or another, my heart knows what is best,
but I’ll take it right now.

Faith is exactly what it takes to get through uncertainty.
Faith is not necessary when I know how things are going to work out, – that’s knowledge. It’s in the time of unknowing that having faith is what sees me through to the other side. Faith is what gives me strength. Faith is that light in my heart that keeps on shining even when it’s all darkness outside. Now is the time to keep that faith alive!
