Have you ever questioned why you’re here on the planet earth.. and if all your words and all your deeds have any value or enduring worth? Your birth, your life and your resurrection are but as an individual soul.. and while you may have harnessed Mother nature, it’s not within your power to prevent growing old.
You haven’t been placed here just for fun.. to do what ever you please. This life is full of strife for everyone and just sparingly sprinkled with comfort and ease.. The basic task you have before you is to submit yourself to Him. Who Created the universe entire and everything within. When once you do, I’m sure that you will find as others have, there’s ample light inside yourself to guide you on the path.
Your mother cried a tear when you appeared and said a heartfelt prayer.. ‘Dear God, please let this child of mine know how much I really care.’ She was there when you took your first steps on your own, and it’s largely due to her efforts that you have any concept of home. She sacrificed for you throughout your entire live and gave you good advice. She said, ‘if you walk to God He’ll run to you. If you’ll take one step He’ll take two. Don’t let nothing or no one hinder your way. If it’s stormy right now, tomorrow there’ll be a brighter day. Take this advice I give you here for I have your interest at heart. When you get older it’ll be clear, for we all from here must part. No one stays here forever it’s not the place to be. It’s only temporary anyway. It’s not eternity.
But still you must live your life as if each day is your last. You can’t project the future and you can’t extend the past. That which is for you will not pass you by, you can’t affect what’s not to be, no matter how hard you try. Always keep good stock of yourself by looking deep within. Arm yourself with righteousness, and guard yourself from sin.
Sometimes it’s ruff, I must admit this stuff is tuff enough. But there’s much comfort when you submit and call the devils bluff. Each step you take make sure it’s straight, don’t falter left or right. Just remember that your strength comes from Gods’ Unrelenting Might. He’s fully Able and Capable if you’ll take Him as your Friend. You’ll find He’s available both day and night as a True Protecting Patron.
Success right here you’ll find, if you follow Laws Divine, and no ones flimsy philosophical whims could then confuse your mind. Just make your motive right and your efforts most sincere. The help of God is never far off.. in fact it’s always near.’
