Thoughts from the Heart

Music has such a powerful affect on the soul.  I have been trying to listen to uplifting music along with read more scriptures on my own and I feel more at peace than I have in a long time.  My trials are still the same but I can handle what is thrown at me much better.  The music makes a big difference. I tried it at the office where I work every Friday and it makes a difference there too.

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ” from Romans 1:16 has a powerful message.  As Christians we are to proclaim the gospel to those unbelievers in a meek and pleasing way. We shouldn’t annoy others if they do not listen but with gentleness, kindness and by good example, we should treat others as they would like to be treated.  Turn the other cheek when an enemy strikes.  Return a quiet answer when angry words are spoken. These are difficult tasks sometimes; especially if we are overly tired, already angry or annoyed by another person.

I read a quote the other day that said we should leave the earth a better place than how we found it.  If only everyone felt this way.  Wake up every morning so that Lucifer will think: oh no, she’s awake.  It’s a great life……
