  • Fifteen Things God Won’t Ask

    God won’t ask what kind of car you drove, but will ask how many people you drove who didn’t have transportation.
    God won’t ask the square footage of your house, but will ask how many people you welcomed into your home.

    God won’t ask about the fancy clothes you had in your closet, but will ask how many of those clothes helped the needy.

    God won’t ask about your social status, but will ask what kind of class you displayed.

    God won’t ask how many material possessions you had, but will ask if they dictated your life.

    God won’t ask what your highest salary was, but will ask if you compromised your character to obtain that salary.

    God won’t ask how much overtime you worked, but will ask if you worked overtime for your family and loved ones.

    God won’t ask how many promotions you received, but will ask how you promoted others.

    God won’t ask what your job title was, but will ask if you reformed your job to the best of your ability.

    God won’t ask what you did to help yourself, but will ask what you did to help others.

    God won’t ask how many friends you had, but will ask how many people to whom you were a true friend.

    God won’t ask what you did to protect your rights, but will ask what you did to protect the rights of others.

    God won’t ask in what neighborhood you lived, but will ask how you treated your neighbors.

    God won’t ask about the color of your skin, but will ask about the content of your character.

    God won’t ask how many times your deeds matched your words, but will ask how many times they didn’t.

  • Trees That Wood
     
    Once there were three trees on a hill in the woods. They were discussing their hopes and dreams when the first tree said, "Someday I hope to be a treasure chest. I could be filled with gold, silver and precious gems. I could be decorated with intricate carving and everyone would see the beauty."
    Then the second tree said, "Someday I will be a mighty ship. I will take kings and queens across the waters and sail to the corners of the world. Everyone will feel safe in me because of the strength of my hull."

    Finally the third tree said, "I want to grow to be the tallest and straightest tree in the forest. People will see me on top of the hill and look up to my branches, and think of the heavens and God and how close to them I am reaching. I will be the greatest tree of all time and people will always remember me."

    After a few years of praying that their dreams would come true, a group of woodsmen came upon the trees. When one came to the first tree he said, "This looks like a strong tree, I think I should be able to sell the wood to a carpenter" ... and he began cutting it down. The tree was happy, because he knew that the carpenter would make him into a treasure chest.

    At the second tree a woodsman said, "This looks like a strong tree, I should be able to sell it to the shipyard." The second tree was happy because he knew he was on his way to becoming a mighty ship.

    When the woodsmen came upon the third tree, the tree was frightened because he knew that if they cut him down his dreams would not come true. One of the woodsmen said, "I don't need anything special from my tree so I'll take this one", and he cut it down.

    When the first tree arrived at the carpenters, he was made into a feed box for animals. He was then placed in a barn and filled with hay. This was not at all what he had prayed for. The second tree was cut and made into a small fishing boat. His dreams of being a mighty ship and carrying kings had come to an end. The third tree was cut into large pieces and left alone in the dark. The years went by, and the trees forgot about their dreams.

    Then one day, a man and woman came to the barn. She gave birth and they placed the baby in the hay in the feed box that was made from the first tree. The man wished that he could have made a crib for the baby, but this manger would have to do. The tree could feel the importance of this event and knew that it had held the greatest treasure of all time. Years later, a group of men got in the fishing boat made from the second tree. One of them was tired and went to sleep. While they were out on the water, a great storm arose and the tree didn't think it was strong enough to keep the men safe. The men woke the sleeping man, and he stood and said "Peace" and the storm stopped. At this time, the tree knew that it had carried the King of Kings in its boat.

    Finally, someone came and got the third tree. It was carried through the streets as the people mocked the man who was carrying it. When they came to a stop, the man was nailed to the tree and raised in the air to die at the top of a hill. When Sunday came, the tree came to realize that it was strong enough to stand at the top of the hill and be as close to God as was possible, because Jesus had been crucified on it.

    The moral of this story is that when things don't seem to be going your way, always know that God has a plan for you. If you place your trust in Him, He will give you great gifts. Each of the trees got what they wanted, just not in the way they had imagined. We don't always know what God's plans are for us. We just know that His ways are not our ways, but His ways are always best.

  • Just Five More Minutes
    While at the park one day, a woman sat down next to a man on a bench near a playground.
    “That’s my son over there,” she said, pointing to a little boy in a red sweater who was gliding down the slide.

    “He’s a fine looking boy” the man said. “That’s my daughter on the bike in the white dress.”

    Then, looking at his watch, he called to his daughter. “What do you say we go, Melissa?”

    Melissa pleaded, “Just five more minutes, Dad. Please? Just five more minutes.”

    The man nodded and Melissa continued to ride her bike to her heart’s content. Minutes passed and the father stood and called again to his daughter. “Time to go now?”

    Again Melissa pleaded, “Five more minutes, Dad. Just five more minutes.”

    The man smiled and said, “OK.”

    “My, you certainly are a patient father,” the woman responded.

    The man smiled and then said, “Her older brother Tommy was killed by a drunk driver last year while he was riding his bike near here. I never spent much time with Tommy and now I’d give anything for just five more minutes with him. I’ve vowed not to make the same mistake with Melissa.

    She thinks she has five more minutes to ride her bike. The truth is, I get Five more minutes to watch her play.”

    Life is all about making priorities, what are your priorities?
    Give someone you love 5 more minutes of your time today!

  • हर क्षण मूल्यवान है, एक क्षण भी व्यर्थ मत जाने दो  

    ऐसे व्यक्ति पर कभी विश्वास मत करो जो प्रशंसा के पूल बांध दे

    जो एक दिशा में नहीं, इधर उधर दौड़ता है वो खली रह जाता है

    जो ज्ञानियों के साथ चलता है, वो स्वयं ज्ञानी हो जाता है

    लोग क्या कहते है इस पर ध्यान मत दो, सिर्फ यह देखो जो करने योग्य था वो हुआ या नहीं  

    सच्ची लगन तथा निर्मल उद्देश्य से किया हुआ प्रयत्न कभी निष्फल नहीं जाता

    दूर से उज्वल दिखाई देने वाली हर वस्तु सुंदर नहीं होती

    सलाह सबकी सुनो पर करो वह जिसके लिए तुम्हारा सहस और विवेक समर्थन दे

    शुभ कार्यो के लिए हर दिन शुभ और अशुभ कार्यो के लिए हर दिन अशुभ है

    असफलता का मौसम सफलता के बीज बोने के लिए सर्वश्रेष्ट समय होता है

  • EAGLES IN A STORM

    Did you know that an eagle knows when a storm is approaching long before it breaks?
     The eagle will fly to some high spot and wait for the winds to come. When the storm hits, it sets its wings so that the wind will pick it up and lift it above the storm. While the storm rages below, the eagle is soaring above it.

    The eagle does not escape the storm. It simply uses the storm to lift it higher. It rises on the winds that bring the storm.

    When the storms of life come upon us - and all of us will experience them - we can rise above them by setting our minds and our belief toward God. The storms do not have to overcome us. We can allow God's power to lift us above them.

    God enables us to ride the winds of the storm that bring sickness, tragedy, failure and disappointment in our lives. We can soar above the storm.

    Remember, it is not the burdens of life that weigh us down, it is how we handle them.

  • Scars of Life

    Some years ago, on a hot summer day in South Florida , a little boy decided to go for a swim in the old swimming hole behind his house. In a hurry to dive into
    the cool water, he ran out the back door, leaving behind shoes, socks, and shirt as he went.He flew into the water, not realizing that as he swam toward the middle of the lake, an alligator was swimming toward the shore.

    His father, working in the yard, saw the two as they got closer and closer
    together. In utter fear, he ran toward the water, yelling to his son as loudly
    as he could.

    Hearing his voice, the little boy became alarmed and made a U-turn
    to swim to his father. It was too late. Just as he reached his father, the alligator reached him. From the dock, the father grabbed his little boy by the arms just as the alligator snatched his legs... 

    That began an incredible  tug-of-war between the two. The alligator was much stronger than the father, but the father was much too passionate to let go.

    A farmer happened to drive by, heard his screams, raced from his truck,
    took aim and shot the alligator.

    Remarkably, after weeks and weeks in the hospital, the little boy survived.

    His legs were extremely scarred by the vicious attack of the animal.

    And, on his arms, were deep scratches where his father's fingernails dug into his flesh in his effort to hang on to the son he loved.

    The newspaper reporter who interviewed the boy after the trauma, asked if he would
    show him his scars.

    The boy lifted his pant legs. And then, with obvious pride, he said to the
    reporter, 'But look at my arms. I have great scars on my arms, too.
    I have them because my Dad wouldn't let go.'

    You and I can identify with that little boy.
    We have scars, too.

    No, not from an alligator,

    but the scars of a painful past. Some of those scars are unsightly and have
    caused us deep regret.

    But, some wounds, my friend, are because God has refused to let go.

    In the midst of your struggle, He's been there holding on to you...

    The Scripture teaches that God loves you.
    You are a child of God.
    He wants to protect you and provide for you in every way. But sometimes we foolishly wade into dangerous situations, not knowing what lies ahead. The swimming hole of life
    is filled with peril - and we forget that the enemy is waiting to attack.

    That's when the tug-of-war begins - and if you have the scars of His love on your arms, HEAD, HANDS,BACK,HEART,BRAIN,LEGS,FINGERS,FACE,JAW, KNEES, ANKLES, HIPS, ETC…be very, very grateful.

       He did not and will not ever let you go.
    [/b]
       
    God has blessed you, so that you can be a blessing to others. You just never know where a person is in his/her life and what they are going through. Never judge another person's scars, because you don't know how they got them...

    Also, it is so important that we are not selfish, to receive the blessings
    of these messages, without forwarding them
    to someone else.

    Right now, someone needs to know that God loves them, and you love them, too -
    enough to not let them go .
    Always Tell Your Family And Friends How Much You Love Them!!!
    A Person, who has controlled his mind, can achieve any success in his life. How far you are trying to control your mind?
    The mind that judges not others ever remains tension-free.
