Eliminating stress in 7 steps

  Identify the first thing that pressurizes you most at the moment. Identify your second and third biggest concerns. Write these three things somewhere. Under each one, write down everything you can do to solve them. Check what you are already doing and what still needs to be done. Do what needs to be done. [...]


Talking about what you know nothing about

  The greatest ignorance is to criticize something you know nothing about. The world is full of ignorant people disguised as wise. Conceited critics on duty, they stand on their ignorance podiums, ready to point fingers and argue their point of view. They forget that a point of view is just that. I only mention [...]


As I have thought, so it shall come to pass

  “Surely, as I have thought, so it shall come to pass,
and as I have purposed, so it shall stand.” Isaiah 14:24 “As I have thought, so it shall come to pass” is more than a promise. It shows how God works. If what He thinks happens, then He does not think about what is [...]


Lust and guilt

  Guilt is a much stronger feeling than lust. Long after lust has faded, guilt still remains. Lust is subject to time and circumstances. Guilt is not. Lust can be controlled.

It’s your job to give orders to yourself

  Why do most people work for others? Very few people choose to tell themselves what to do. Most of the time, the majority of people need others to tell them what to do. From birth, we are told what to wear, what to eat, what religion to practice, whom to like and dislike, what [...]


Giving a break

  Everyone has the right to have a bad day every once in a while. The day you wake up late and as you get up, you hit your shin on the bed frame. You are about to get dressed when you realize the clothes you need are not ironed. You’re going to have a cup of [...]
