SELF CONFIDENCE: STORY BY ABRAHAM G

SELF CONFIDENCE-FORWARDED BY ABRAHAM,G
SELF- CONFIDENCE
A business executive was deep in debt and could see no way out. Creditors were closing in on him. Suppliers were demanding payment...
He sat on the park bench, head in hands, wondering if anything could save his company from bankruptcy.
Suddenly an old man appeared before him. " I can see that something is troubling you," he said. After listening to the executive's woes, the old man said, I believe I can help you."
He asked the man his name, wrote out a check and pushed it into his hand saying,
"Take the money....Meet me here exactly one year from today, and you can pay me back at that time,"
Then he turned and disappeared as quickly as he had come.The business executive saw in his hand a check for $500,000,signed by John D Rockefeller, then one of the richest men in the world!! "
I can ease my money worries in an instant!"he realized.
But instead, the executive decided to put the uncashed check in his safe.
Just knowing it was there might give him the strength to work out a way to save his business, he thought.
With renewed optimism, he negotiated better deals and extended terms of payment. He closed several big sales. Within a few months, he was out of debt and making money once again.
Exactly one year later, he returned to the park with the uncashed check.
At the agreed-upon time, the old man appeared .
But just as the executive was about to hand back the check and shared his success story, a nurse came running up and grabbed the old man. " I'm so glad I caught him!" she cried." I hope he hasn't been bothering you. He's always escaping from the rest home and telling people he's John D Rockefeller, "
And she led the old man away by the arm.The astonished executive just stood there, stunned. All year long he'd been wheeling and dealing, buying and selling, convinced he had half a million dollars behind him.Suddenly he realized that it wasn't the money, real or imagined.that had turned his life around. It was his new found self-confidence that gave him the power to achieve anything he went after.

God hears the cry of the faithful.  It may not happen yet now
but it will come!  It will depend on one's faith.  For one
garners commensurate to one's dependence and confidence in HIM.

Reflection from the Book of Amos



For look, he it is who forged the mountains, creates the wind, who reveals his mind to the humankind, changes the dawn into darkness and strides on the heights of the world.  Amos 4:13

This is a "hymnal fragment" as alluded for liturgical purposes 

in the olden times.  The background of this passages points to 

obstinacy and hardness of hearts of the people.   God sent 

punishment, but the people would not listen!


On the other hand, the focus is on the reminder of God's power

over everything, hence all life and creation.  In the present 

context of the world, which is a complex intermingling of unity 

and disunity, let us ponder on God's sovereignty on everything 

that happens now.

History repeats itself.  But. there is no need to worry too much.  What we have to think about, from my perspective is:  Have we praised God enough?  Have we worshiped God enough?  Have we obeyed God enough?  Seek ye the Kingdom of God and everything will be added unto us.

Let us stand by God's promises!  Let us believe unconditionally!  Let us march forward fearing nothing but Him alone, relying on nothing but God alone.  Then we will see and there is a guarantee
that the leaves will be green again, that the flowers will be colourful again and our deserts will be running with water and oasis!  Praise the Lord!
Reference:  New Jerusalem Bible, p. 1529 (1994).

LOOK AT THE FLOWERS BY MARIA CASSIA




















LOOK AT THE FLOWERS


The world is full of flowers, dandelions and lilies,
Look at these flowers; they never plant or view
Shoot from the sepals and grow anew each day
Solomon's garments not as lovely as O they lay.

Roses abound in my garden, reddish and pinkish,
Plucked in the morning as the vase full of water
Offered for my Lord as the morn hasten to noon
The petals brighten as my eyes beamed attune!

Do not worry, for the birds arise to seek a living,
They never earn, nor work or strive with wings
Yet Heavenly Father provides for them array!
How much for you created in His image at bay?

The grasses, verdant green and emerald at times,
How I walked on the lush green at dawn and night
Yet the following day, they'll be gathered in barns
To be burned the next day, as smoke rise as yarns!

Do not worry, for you are precious to your Father,
The Master never forgets you in every day hour
Do not worry for even the luscious flowers thank,
Smile and walk with confidence, for God loves us!

Inspired by the Gospel

FAILURE ISN'T GOD'S REJECTION BUT GOD'S REDIRECTION (BO SANCHES)

( There is a great lesson to learn and thanks for this Literary contribution) New World
Eagles are amazing parents. I didn't know how special
are the nests they make for their babies. To make it,
Daddy Eagle makes this special nest with sturdy twigs
and sharp thorns. But to make it comfortable, he'll cover the twigs and thorns with grasses.
But here is the amazing part: Mommy Eagle pluck her own feathers from her breast! She'll place them on their nest for added warmth and comfort.

Many times a day, Mommy Eagle will fly out and bring some fish or other food and put in the open mouths of her hungry kids.
Because the nest is built on high rocky cliffs, winds are very strong. When there's a storm, Mommy Eagle would cover them with her large wings. The eaglets lived a pampered life. But one day, it's time to teach them how to fly. And in an instant, their entire world changes.
First, Mommy Eagle will remove the grasses from their nest; thus the thorns and twigs will not make it comfortable for the eaglets.
Next, their mother will throw them out of the nest to fly. But they will return back to the nest and they bleed because of the thorns and twigs. They cry and say, "Why does Mommy do this to us?"
Then they will be thrown back so many times and on about the seventh or eight time, they get the message --- Mommy is teaching them how to fly!
Finally, Mommy push them to the cliff, and surely death is just awaiting.
Then the eaglets flap their wings and now they are already flying.
In the same way, we encounter failures and difficulties, but it does not mean that God rejects or abandon us. God is just redirecting us for something
that is better for us.
