What would happen?



I found this awakening, inspiring and  touching post published by " Deidra on her blog http://www.deidramanning.com/. And I couldn't help it but to ask her permission, which she granted to share this wonderful post to my followers here. 

It really touched my heart, so I hope it will do to you too! 

                      
                                     Pictures though is mine!
                                                                 

What would happen if I started giving in spite of what I need?

What would happen if I stop making everything about me and consider others?

What would happen if I started praying for those who hurt or annoy me instead of rehearsing every offense for days after it’s done?

What would happen if I took a break from things that overwhelm or distract me and replaced them with quiet time  with Him?

What would happen if I began to focus on only the positive things in my life?

What would happen if I stopped begging God and started trusting Him to handle it in His time, His way?

What would happen if I had the courage to stop dreaming and start doing?

What would happen if I let go of my fear of others’ opinions and did what God’s put in my heart?

What would happen if I took God’s promises and directives personally, like they were written specifically for me?

What would happen if I made it my mission to be the best person I can be every single day, to reflect Christ’s attitudes and actions and compassion no matter what that day holds?

What would happen if I was willing to let go of my excess for those who are truly in need?



Grace would be given.

Love would be shown.

Peace would prevail.

Faith would be lived.

Change would be realized.

Needs would be met.

Jesus would be pleased.

And yet I live as if I don’t know the answers to these questions.

God, forgive me.

God, help me.

                 Thanks Deidra for sharing this to us!

  17. What would happen if I began to focus on only the positive things in my life?
    ---ito yung tanong ko ngayon sa buhay ko. marami tayong pagsubok pero theres always a bright side naman sa lahat ng bagay.

    What would happen if I let go of my fear of others’ opinions and did what God’s put in my heart?

    ---tulad ng iba, takot din sa sabibihin ng iba tungkol sa akin.

    Ms.Joy andami kong nareralize ika nga dito sa post na ito. Kinopya ko nga tapos binabasa ko at sinasagutan ko na rin sa isip ko :)))
