"When people ridicule you, mock you, judge you and downsize you...do not be disheartened, do not be inferior, do not pity yourself. The fortitude and mettle of a man exudes when you began to learn and prove your worth through gaining fortitude and strength from the prejudices of the world, made by man himself. Only then you will learn the true test of man's faith to himself and to God."
Written in 2007 by Rodyssa M. Estabillo --- Philippines
I made this quotation because I would like to offer the idea that mockery and prejudices of some men can be a plausible remark to make us a better person - strengthened with faith and combating confidence, ready to prove our worth!

"Don't hang in there, keep on going!"
Written in 2007 by Lee Si Y. --- Singapore
I thought of how people always said "hang in there" to me whenever I was in trouble or feeling lousy. But after years, out of the blue, I wondered why do they ask us to hang in there? Most importantly is that we must move on, to improve, solve the problems, then we are really out of trouble ((:

"Rest assured there will be times when you fall flat on your face. It will seem as if the harder you pray, the more you attempt to trust, the more holy and devout you become, the worse your life will appear to be. Things that were going well will go wrong. Things that were not so well will blow up in your face. It is a trick! Do not be fooled by appearances! Hold on to the words, the phrase, the prayer, the little bits of trust and faith you can muster. You are not being tested! You are being fortified! Remember, you cannot fail! All paths lead to the same road. The road to peace, joy, and the memory of God's Unconditional Love."

"My Mess, God's Miracle!"
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Heather A. --- Ohio
Our pastor was discussing Forgiveness, Shame, Healing, Secrets, and Freedom from all of the above. For the past few months, I have been making one mistake after another. My childhood has begun to resurface. From being raped, being molested, and from being ignored! This message hit me hard. We all create messes in our lives. We are all given the miracle to move on!!!

My Friend

She makes me forget my worries
She supports me when all leave me alone
She corrects me in times of wrong
She smiles at my mistake
Encourages, seeing my capacity
Discourages my wrong ways
She fills life to my life
Fills smiles to my thoughts
Fills air to my breath
Hers are the sweet memories
Never fails, cherishes my life,
Helps to recall my youth.
She is none other than my close friend,
Trustworthy friend whom I depend on.
