The Lost Strength

I was lost
in search of you
somehow made
my way through.
With lots of
strength and grit,
collecting myself
bit by bit.
Now I’ve started
to crawl
and soon I’ll
cross the wall.
Growing stronger
day by day,
I will make
my own way.

As the time
passes by,
I’m learning
again to fly;
without your help
and acceptance
marking my
utmost presence.
The will to
grow and succeed
and to fulfill
my deeds
I’m prepared
to fight again.
The lost strength
is regained.

Choices

Choice….such a small word but it has a huge impact on our lives.

There is a beautiful line in the novel “If I Stay” by Gayle Forman describing the artistry of choices. It goes as “Sometimes you make choices in life and sometimes choices make you.”  It simply shows the power contained in such a small word.

Choices define us, made us who we are today and will definitely determine who we become tomorrow.  Our choices are highly influenced by the surroundings and the options available to us. We hardly notice the change taking place in ourselves with every decision taken.

One very important aspect of making a choice is the consequence associated with it.  It takes a few moments to make a decision over the most critical issues, but the consequences have a long-lasting effect. It’s not the choices that we are afraid of; it’s the after effect that scares us. It is essential that we should boldly face the consequences once we have made a decision rather than sulking about it.

So tighten up your seat belts, stay motivated and be prepared for anything and everything that is coming your way. You are going to rock the world.

Think Smart Work Smart

Once a baby girl went to a shop with her mother. The shop keeper looked at the small cute child and showed her a bottle with sweets and said, “Dear Child, you can take the sweets”. But the child didn’t take. The shopkeeper was surprised; such a small child she is and why is she not taking the sweets from the bottle.

Again he said take the sweets. Now the mother also heard that and said, “Take the sweets dear”. Yet she didn’t take it. The shopkeeper seeing the child not taking the sweets, he himself took the sweets and gave to the child. The child was happy to get two hands full of sweets.

While returning home the mother asked the child — Why didn’t you take the sweets, when the shop keeper told you to take? Can you guess the response: . . . Child replies Mom! My hands are very small and if I take the sweets I can only take few, but now you see when uncle gave with his big hands, how many more sweets I got!

When we take we may get little but when Our Father in Heaven gives, He gives us more beyond our expectations more than what we can think of because His blessings are more better than we can even imagine. Always ask God what you want and wait for the Lord to give you more!!

Ask what you want;

But be willing to take what is given to you;

Because

This may be better than what you asked for.
