Hope Beyond Fear

I lose myself in my thoughts. I think of you, I think of life. I think about the need to exist.  Where do we find the peace that our lifeless soul’s seek?

There is more to life. The is more to death. There is more to everything seen and unseen. 

You cannot define your existence within the walls of your home, or by living in your closed mind. You need to step outside.

Hope lives beyond Fear.

BE YOUR OWN INSPIRATION

Love you

When you’ve been hurt for a long time, many people struggle to know love, to trust and to give more of yourself. You hide behind the walls of your mind and your home. You hide behind other people, yet feel completely alone. You hope to be saved, but struggle to know who you are and if you even can be? Abuse is not your identity, neither is it of the victim. You didn’t ask to be treated less than you deserve, you didn’t sign up for this. Someone hurt you out of their hurt. You have probably hurt people out of your hurt. It doesn’t matter how good you think you are, you are human and broken people struggle to do normal. What is normal, no one really knows, social constructs aren’t always clear cut.

We have this idea that everyone else has their lives perfectly planned out, that they have the perfect families and relationships. That they have a bunch of friends and that they’re never lonely. That is not true, everyone has a journey, everyone has struggled along their journey. We often compare our journeys. Who has had it worse, had more trouble, fought more battles, who’s better? But why, it isn’t a competition? You exist for something greater. You exist to become more than a sum of your past experiences. You exist to be present NOW, to continue to grow and develop beyond your mind. You are not to be imprisoned – especially by the very person who should love you. Yourself.

Beyond everything and everybody you need to ground yourself in truth and in love. Not by the lies we have told ourselves to cope and not by the facades we create to fit in with the wrong crowds. Examine your motives for why you do what you, how you live, how you think, and how you treat other people including your family. Do you harm yourself unnecessarily? If you have unresolved resentment you will have problems with anger. If you feel unworthy and ugly, or just not good enough for anything or any body, you’ve probably been abused and rejected. If you lack confidence, you have probably been mocked and made ashamed. Look inward, find yourself. Don’t relive your hurts and get stuck in your thought’s.

Focus on the person inside. The one you know that is in there, hiding. The one that cries out to be seen. The one that aches to love and live freely. The one that isn’t afraid of being seen. When you find them, shine the light in the darkness and do whatever you can to set them free. Believe again. Have hope. You need to meet yourself and let go of the vein of existence you have held so tightly to. Fear is not your master, stand on the head of the snake with your heel and walk boldly into your future. You are strong, you’ve got this. Love you.

Nothing is impossible!

You are more than you think you can be. Don’t let life defeat you and push you down so low that you struggle to get back up! If you are on the ground it is time to realise your worth. You are amazing and can bounce back. No weapon formed against you can prosper. You may get kicked down but you are always strong enough to get back up and refuse to be punished for your mistakes or wrong judgement in people. You are more than a conquer. Today is a new day and you can start over right Now!

You can’t have me!

Standing in the shadows with my identity torn, wishing often for my life to be unborn. People tried to take me, wanted to break me, pull at my soul and shame me. Never knowing that I am stronger. I will always fight back.

I may be down, I may get knocked out, but rest assured I’ll bounce right back. You cannot destroy the good in me or God in me.

You cannot take my life and flesh and call it your own. I was a child but now I’ve grown.

I am stronger and I am older, forever bolder because of God in me, not you.

Please don’t take credit you do not deserve. I am free to live as I choose, I am free to rise and free to fall. My choices decide how I live and how I die. I will not give you credit for my demise. I am worthy. I will survive.

Created and born to stand for all, this life I chose is mine not yours. Your toxic delusions, I’ve buried them all.

On a rock I stand. My heart beats for my I AM. There is nothing in this world that can make me fall. Stop thinking you’ve had my all.

The Evolution of My Soul

To become greater than yourself you have to become more than what you think you were. Who are we really?

My flesh lives in fear although my soul simultaneously lives in hope. Entrapped by social fears and financial restraint, I am free to do anything.

Beauty within reach yet so far away. I am in love, but self loathe. I feel uneasy in my own skin. Pain curbs my will and my flesh steals my might. I want to be free, to feel at one.

I proclaim I am clear minded and worry free, yet I ponder after every interaction “am I good enough” “could I do better” for the world, other people, myself and for this life?!

I question myself. Am I trying too hard to fit in? Is it wrong to be better than I was yesterday, to question myself, my motivations and morals? To be more than I was?

Broken throughout time, and yet unjustifiably pieced together with it, I believe there is more to just existing.

Unequivocally irreversibly enlightened. I have more layers than the proverbial onion. Try peeling them back, you may well cry.

My soul yearns for more. I am stuck within four walls and a shell. My body, my home. Life.

Like a caterpillar I await transcendence within my cocoon. I am just waiting to fly.

ML MALTA 2020

Unbroken

It is easy to self loathe, many do it daily without even thinking about it. How about we start loving ourselves and defining ourselves by the choices we make from now on. There is true strength and beauty within us all, that needs to be acknowledged and celebrated. ML

“Love yourself with more intensity than you did to hate.” ML Malta

Still There

I’m still here. I am lost within myself, but I am still here. I cannot express my truth, but I am still here.

I cannot recall things or people, but I am still here. I cannot be independent and my body doesn’t listen, but I am still here.

I am not the person I was or that you remember, but I am still here. I feel as though I am not me anymore, but I know, am still here.

I forget, yet I am not to be forgotten. I still feel and see, touch and breathe. My words and actions do not make sense to you or to me, but I’m still here.

Please do not forget me while I’m trapped within my walls. I am still here.

Learning to Fly

“I’m very grateful for the way life has turned around. That bad people don’t stay and that good ones do. Though it has never been easy, I’m grateful for the life lessons, wisdom and understanding that comes from falling, because without it I would never have learnt to fly.” – ML Malta

Please stop judging me.

We all make mistakes, especially when we’re in pain. You are more than the sum of a few stupid decisions. You are more than your mistakes. If people judge you by them, they really don’t know you. Your character should stand out and shine above the petty things. People will never know your truth, and who cares? Why should they? They certainly don’t need to! Who’s business is it to judge? I’m sure they’re not perfect. So why worry ourselves and destroy your own value and self worth because we’re so busy worrying about what other people think of us. Why worry about something we can’t change?! Move on.

People will never know what you’ve lived through. How hurt you’ve been, who, or how many hurt you, when, where or how long or often?! People will judge us on our moment’s of failure, but that failure isn’t an end, it’s a lesson. We grow, we learn and we mature. We’re constantly moving forward and developing. Don’t let the opinions of other’s – past or present, stop you from living your best life. You’re more than the opinions of sheep. We can’t allow pitfalls to leave us in the pit. You have to get up, shake off the dirt and get back on track. Forgive your naivety.

Start growing up and moving on with life. Life is with the living, the past is dead and buried. It is about time we heal. Leave it where it belongs – in the past. Take the lesson and forget the rest. Life is really too short to stress about silly mistakes. Please don’t waste another moment of your precious life harming yourself for being human.

You deserve to treat yourself with all the love and respect in the world. Follow your dreams and passion. Help people. Be kind to yourself and other’s. It is a start, and it definitely won’t be the end of a great life. Enjoy it. It’s your time to shine.

– ML Malta

Future.

Future. I look to you hoping to see something new. To see a version of myself that would be appealing and attainable. In the microseconds of every day I see you becoming no more than yesterday. I cannot move beyond myself and these walls, yet, there is progress. There is more! A balance between what was, is, and what will be. Carefully orchestrated beyond my reach and significantly within and out of my control. What a whirlwind you are? Oh creation, a mystery and a mastery; not to be put under the microscope.

A Shared Existance

We laugh at others for amusement, while they struggle to catch a breath. Anxiety flood’s their bodies as they stand bravely, smiling and acting as if they did not notice. They put on a brave face, one of acceptance and resilience. The whisperers and passing glances infiltrate the mind while their heart skips a beat while fluttering so quickly it hurts. The pain is invisible and avoidable. The battle is internal with darts penetrating more than just our mere flesh. We are responsible for our actions and how we treat one another. People aren’t fair game nor is their livelihood. We can’t just take thing’s that don’t belong to us, including someone’s dignity and self worth. In this selfish world – we have to be better.

Find a reason to act in kindness. Learn empathy, seek love and understand how to give it. Instead of going with the crowd, go against it. Be thoughtful and considerate of others when everyone else walks by. Every day we get to choose what kind of people we are and who we want to become. Remember it is no harder nor easier than ever before, it is and has always been – a choice. A choice to live by our values than the lack of and the option to change them for the better. Good and bad, our choices do define us. Although it is inevitable for mistakes, we have the power to change and make better choices. Selfishness or selflessness. To be a better human we have to care enough to change.

Life is fleeting, but within it are millions of incremental moments that forge our eternity. We think the world is for our taking, including people. They are not, it is not. It is time to think about the choices we live by and how those moment’s define not just our existence, but the one in which we share.

– M.L Malta

My best me?

If you are unable to define yourself or see yourself as you truly are, how can you shed the expectations of your peers? Be true to your heart, be true to yourself and to God. Be amazing, be wonderful, be kind, be courageous, loving and wise. Be silly, laugh and live life to the fullest. Help others, be charitable, but most of all be the you your 5 year old self hoped you grow up to be. Be the best version of yourself in a world that tries to make you the worst. You are worth fighting for. You are good enough. You are loved. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve walked down a dark road, you can always turn around and walk the other way. – M.L Malta

Change your why

MLMalta quote 2020 1200x2133

If you stood before God today, what would your excuse or reason be to have lived the life you had? Would you be confident that you lived every moment to its potential? Have you buried your dreams before you, yourself, are buried? What excuse do you believe? Every choice we make is one to either move you forward or to remain unchanged. Don’t let another year pass without living to your potential. Be everything you yearn to be. Life is too short to wait. Stop procrastinating and start becoming the person you desire to be, because when life ends there isn’t another opportunity to change it.

ML Malta

You are the Gift

Sometimes, doing thing’s you don’t like to do assists other people. That’s called a sacrifice. Every day we sacrifice ourselves and our time, willingly or unwilling. If life was easy, it wouldn’t be a gift, because the things we cherish the most, are usually thing’s we have worked hardest for. Don’t forget, you define the value of your moments and sometimes just being there is your gift to someone in need. – ML Malta

I Want to Go to Heaven

20191008_201745_0000I hope with all I am, that I will enter heaven. That the doors will open and angel’s will walk beside me as Jesus greets me and welcomes me home. I hope that this life is not wasted, that the years and the moments in between mean something. I pray that God saves me from myself and the world that surrounds me.

Born Stronger!

20190906_220847_0000.pngIn this life we are to forgive. Forgive each other for not being what we needed each other to be. This includes ourselves. We need to know that we’ve always had the inner strength to get through anything life will throw at us without having to use other people as an excuse not to. We are BORN STRONG. Remember… As long as there is life, there is HOPE!

I Survive…

IT IS ALSO EXTREMELY LIKELY I WILL NOT JUST SURVIVE TOMORROW BUT I WILL SUCCEED IN LIVING, I PERSEVERE IN THIS LIFE BECAUSE I AM DRIVEN BY A WILL GREATER THAN MY OWN, A DEEP SET DESIRE TO STAND WHEN CRUSHED. TO PUSH BACK THE HEAL OF THOSE WHO HAVE OPPRESSED ME – INCLUDING MYSELF. WHEN I AM AT WAR INSIDE I HAVE DECIDED I AM GOING TO WIN BEFORE MY EYES OPEN EACH DAY. THE BATTLE IN MY MIND WILL NEVER CONQUER MY SOUL, NOR WILL I EMPOWER OTHERS TO INFECT IT WITH THEIR INFERIORITY. – ML MALTA

REAL FRIEND’S KNOW THAT LIFE IS BUSY AND THAT THERE IS NO EXPECTATION TO PROVE YOUR FRIENDSHIP THROUGH UNNECESSARY GRAND GESTURES. HOWEVER, WE WILL GLADLY ACCEPT SMALL FAVOURS, A HUG, A TEXT OR A CUP OF COFFEE! EVEN THEN… WE AREN’T IN IT FOR WHAT WE CAN GET, BUT WHAT WE CAN GIVE. SOMETIMES IT’S NOTHING BUT LOVE FROM A DISTANCE.

Today, I choose me!

Today, I choose me!

We need to grow as individuals. Remaining stagnant is toxic to your life. Create a vision for your life that compels you to initiate long term change and cycle a growth mentality that gives you the life you truly desire. Make a plan, create a new ritual, then rinse and repeat it until you have a new pattern, one that you’ve chosen intentionally that pays the dividends you actually want. Don’t put it off. The moment we create change is now. – ML Malta

We lose, we win.

We often feel incredibly grieved during loss. Caught up in the notion that life will never be good again. It isn’t until we look back after time has healed our soul, that we, are able to see the life awaiting us. Transporting us into the dream. I was once so caught up in such a storm, I forgot to let it pass. I didn’t realise I stayed in it without purpose. I let it sweep me out to sea. Life isn’t easy, but if you never give up, the sun will always shine again, except this time… brighter.

Lenses and Filters

“Our interpretations of the world around us, are altered, by the way we individually process information. We all process the world and the way we send and receive information differently. Everyone learns, lives, feels and internally sees, the world through interpersonal lenses. What we tend to forget in ourselves and others, is that our comparative lenses and filters are constantly changing. Therefore, the world I know is essentially intrinsically different to yours.” ©ML Malta 201920190316_145117_0000_20190316145139098627126351152037807.jpg

Pay attention to what you are thinking about!

Our thoughts guide our lives. Be mindful of your mind. Guard your heart and life by filtering the information you generate from within, but also from the external influences. Retain your power by being presently in control of everything that enters your mind and essentially your life. – ML Malta

The noise from within…

Just because you think something – it doesn’t mean that it is true. Our thoughts are not always derived from a spirit of truth or wisdom. Guard your mind with your life, because your life and quality there of, depends on it. – ML Malta

The Past Gives Us The Present

Unconditionally Yours

Your love is unconditional. You think upon me when the sun rises and sets. When the stars shine, your heart remains in mine. Every moment between belongs to me. Not one breath is breathed without exhaling me into existence. You strategically place me, even in the darkest corner so that when you stumble you have to find the light. Your love does not falter, nor does it contend. It is not self seeking or power hungry. The only power you seek is mine to share. You want only to stop the darkness. You hope the lost become found, above your own life, you seek me.

I loved you unconditionally… yet, for the world to love me, what eye can truly see? You show me, love me, and offer my love to the world. At the risk of life and the price of all that matters you bow before me, offering your life. You do not just pray, you speak to me and wait for me to answer. When I called out for you, you came and said Lord… “Here I am send me!” You have been obedient and trusted. You have given without repayment, sown through drought and watered those who needed to drink from me. Your life has fed the lost and given hope. Because of me you have transformed your life to represent unconditional love. I am unconditional love. Christ crucified is unconditional love. I am unconditionally yours.

You have a chance to do everything better than you have before. We are not defined or trapped by our past, nor is your future depicted by it. You create your future by the choices you make in each current moment. The present, is your gift. Those choices we seemingly assume to be mindless are creating the future, your future, before your very eyes. We need to be mindful and concious of the way we live out our day’s. Live in each moment purposefully, because you are the architect, designer and creator of this life you are living out.

Your future can be anything you desire it to be. The past is familiar and it is often repeated because of this familiarity we are drawn to it like a moth to a flame. Such as the same type of partner’s that end up breaking your heart. Familiar is not necessarily good, but fear stops us from seeking the new and we often settle back into old patterns and behaviors. We are habitually drawn to familiar things even though they can be negative. Because we have created fear around the idea of the unknown and unpredictably of a future that isn’t controlled, we tend to gravitate to the same men or women, or have trouble changing routines that are toxic. The familiar is modelled off your past, so if you are trying to change your direction stop following the same blueprints and recreate your life by proactively holding life’s pen and rewriting it. Embrace the new!

Starting setting high goals! Have expectations beyond your limiting thoughts and feelings. Leave the past like unturned soil. Stop digging it up! You cannot change what you did yesterday, but you can improve now! Make a deal with yourself to modify your thinking and to change your feelings. The actions will follow. Eventually your world will start to change. It will be possible for you to get excited about life. You will unlock opportunities and a whole new world will open its gates to you with open arms. New isn’t scary, staying the same is.

Take control of your thought life. Don’t own every feeling and thought that drops into your head, you can change and swap those for other constructive and kind thoughts. If you go to a shop for cake and it gives you coal you wouldn’t accept it, you deserve the best, you demand the best and you expect the best. So why do we accept less when it comes to ourselves and those vicious inner voices and critics? Why listen to the haters in our heads without challenging them? They can be challenged and they can be changed. We aren’t the product of our thoughts, but we are shaped by conscious thinking and the words thereof.

Do not dwell on the things and events of the past that have torn you down or limited your belief in life, love or yourself. Be better, do better every single day. Make changes within yourself and take back control of your life and give the world the version of yourself that is no longer afraid to breathe. Get beyond your self. Use your imagination to stir up thoughts and feelings that match your desires instead of your fears. Deny access to the enemy and dark energy that once resided. Take back ownership of your thought life, mind, body and soul.

Life really is too short, enjoy it.

Be blessed.

Dancing from Within

Perceptions are versions of our individual truth. They are an accumulation of distorted images and sensory stimuli that create physiological, psychological and neurological responses to the world about us and the way we respond to it. Our memories and experiences are unique; they are based of an individual standpoint and mindset.

A single memory can trigger the way we interpret everything else because it may be a sensitivity we had not discovered about ourselves. Over time we stack them like bad chapters in decaying books. Being mindful and acknowledging the mind in its complexities, we may be able to see the simple world around us and how we shape it through our experiences.

We can change the way we interpret and fit the world around us. If we can reframe our past and file away those triggers so that we understand them, maybe we can find peace. Maybe, if we focus on the joy’s, rather than our fear and failures, we can build up rather than tear ourselves down. Maybe, in the darkness you can close your eyes and see yourself dancing without the noise and shine the light on your hope, strength and love.

Life is Hard, but I am Stronger!

Life is hard. There is not a rule book or a guide that will ever cover it all completely. Every life, every choice, every journey is indescribably different and unique. There is not a version of perfect to check everyone’s box. Life is complex, painful, difficult, arduous and tumultuous. Life is hard. However, throughout this hard life we are surrounded by gift’s.

When we focus on how bad and hard life is, it is easy to develop tunnel vision. Everything goes wrong! Why me? Things will never improve. This always happens… All we see are the problems. We are blinded, unable to see anything of beauty or value. Overshadowed. We only see the threat and the basis of all of all our fears is fear itself. It manifests around us like a tornado tearing worlds apart. Fear grips at your soul and torments your mind. It is hard to appreciate anything good. You feel as though joy is momentary because cracks will develop there too.

Exponentially experienced in the art of protecting ourselves to the detriment of ones very soul, our mind’s are the battlefield that the darkness expedites its army. Unknowingly we open the door and feed the monsters. We scream for freedom behind the bars of fear, where the evil grows, we are left lingering in the shadows. Legions of opposing thoughts creating feelings sire a lowly spirit. I scream, we all scream. Oh to be free, to let the light shine in. To free my mind, my life, my body and the world about me. To regain power over my enemy. To regain the life I have only dreamt of.

To shine so brightly that even in a dark world my soul will not cast a shadow. To be free and trust something bigger. To live happily with an imperishable hope in a world I feel estranged to. I renew my mind, my thoughts, feelings and world daily. Casting out my enemy, I surrender to love. My face pressed to the floor, tears of agony aged like fine wine soaking the earth beneath me. The impurities flee like sand into floor boards never to return. I regain my God given rights, to live, and love. Freedom floods the gates of my soul. I close the door to fear, the enemy that stole my life has lost its grip on my reality. I live and I love again; I am free. Life is hard, but I am stronger!

Step by Step

Live in the spirit, walk by faith and the truth, not by what people think or say, or by how we feel. We need to choose every second of each day to live right and understand our worth. We have to physically make decisions to move past things in our lives that are toxic to our futures. Be mindful of distractions from good.

We have the ability to ‘un-react’ to the past that imposes on our future. We have the strength to shed our mistakes and imperfections. To press forward and to make every moment a decision, not just a bad habit.

Do not let feelings and emotions encourage you to make compromising behaviors that affect your ability to move ahead; the consequences degrade your value and encourages a cycle of pain, untrust and lack of self worth. Be better, do better.

Fighter!

I decided many year’s ago that no matter what happens to me, whatever comes against me, tries to hurt me, tear me down or destroy me… It will not succeed. I refuse to bow down to anything that is against me. I will fight the good fight regardless of the obstacles the pain, and hardships associated with it all. Even if I lose my life I’d gain it. My SPIRIT and my MIND will not be broken. My faith heals my soul and renews my hope. I renew my mind and trust the word of God above any feeling, or voice that tries to tear me down. I am more than a conqueror. I am a warrior!

Choose Life!

Looking back over my life, I have made some incredibly epic mistakes. I have made bad choices, been hurt, broken and torn. I put my joy in other people’s pockets and didn’t know myself, or my value. I wanted to be loved by people that don’t know how to.

I have been physically and emotionally abused for the better part of my whole life and through it all I’ve blossomed. I’ve overcome brokenness, adversities, health problems and massive life issue’s. Although there has been so much turbulence, I was incredibly blessed with two beautiful children that drive me to be a better and stronger person every day. To be a mother they love and look up to. I also now have a husband I love and who loves me equally as much, with all of our hearts and then some. Additionally, I have two step daughter’s that are amazing and a wonderful extended family, all in which i’m incredibly grateful for. But it has not always been so pleasant.

I had spent so much time feeling that love was not real, that people were just evil and I only lived because of my faith in God. I was born into an abusive home and I had health problems. I was sick and shattered from a young age. As a result I never had hope, and felt very alone. As I became older I found God, but it didn’t stop my hardships. I was a mess. As the years went on I went from abuse to abuse, after a while I stopped caring, I’d let myself be abused because I was so tired of fighting. Although I knew God I was destroyed by the evil in the world and I felt beaten. My understanding of God and faith was very immature and although I knew he was with me, I had so much to learn and grow through. Sometimes my kids and God were the only thing’s keeping me alive.

Life has been very hard and extremely judgmental. I used to feel ashamed by the lies my abusers said to protect themselves. I tried defending myself only to feel invisible and unheard, It was a difficult time being labeled and victimized. Feeling so vulnerable and alone was soul crushing. Iooking back I was caring too much about what others thought than who God said I was. I was seeking love from people that couldn’t give it. Inside I was a small girl crying out to be loved and cared for. Looking back I was immature, I didn’t understand what it really meant to be loved or how to live in faith because I was still living in fear. We can not meet everyone’s expectations and we are not perfect. Neither is anyone else. Life is not that easy. I felt lost. My identity felt misinterpreted and abused. People I cared about lied about me, abused me and accused me. So many lies, so many tears. Many relationships were fractured because of manipulation and lies. Everyone out for themselves regardless of anyone else. It can be sad world. It took a long time for me to stand on my feet and not care about the lies, or the past and just concern myself with me and who I am and want to become. I pity them now, especially the ones that have not changed.

I’ve grown. I’ve grown beyond their lies, the fears, the demons and the darkness. No longer under a shadow. I love the person God created me to be and am. I know I have value and it is not dependent on anyone! Not even myself. I am loved and beautiful. I don’t need people to hold me up, I just need God to hold me in his arm’s. I don’t need to listen to every voice screaming in my head, the peace that I chose to hear is all I’ll ever need. People think they know me, but they don’t. They heard stories, made up by a liar, or they saw me make mistakes. Sure I made mistakes, but one bad choice isn’t my identity and I refuse to accept it. My identity and life now has clear purpose and value. I don’t waste my thoughts, feelings or energy on unnecessary things or people and I refuse to live in the past.

The people we associate with and allow into our lives is extremely important, they shape the perception of us and our experiences. I have learnt to be mindful of my connections and not allow myself to be mistreated. I positioned myself with love. Whatever life throws at you, stand your ground and pray. Never lose hope, and above all, do not relinquish your faith into the arm’s of fear. You will survive the storm’s of life. Every day is a new day and an opportunity to grow beyond what life has done to you, or what you let happen to yourself. You are not a victim, you are in fact a warrior. You are an overcomer!

God has a plan to bless you and prosper you regardless of what any devil in hell might try to put you through. Raise your hopes and keep fighting. You will see change as you change. Grow from your experiences and become the person you know you are on the inside. Let yourself shine in the darkness until you reach the sun. Be the light and let it shine within you. I know mine felt like it was smouldering at times, but it never went out. I wouldn’t give in and give my enemies their wish! No! You fight and you fight and you fight well! I am not perfect, but I do know that to survive you need to grow. You get up every day, have a shower, eat, drink and move! Start researching anything and everything that will help you change your state of mind and move you physically into a better place or environment. Challenge your mindset, false beliefs, the lies and move forward. Make better choices, be better… do better! Leave the past behind you. Change your people and associations. People that are in a rut want company, don’t be their crutch. Do not settle! Get up out of that ditch and lead by example. Look after yourself! If they aren’t ready for change that’s their issue, change yourself. You can only control your outcome. Only you can choose LIFE.

Thank God!

Thank GOD! Thank God, life moves on. Thank God for unanswered prayers and the ones our heart’s cried out for and God heard. Life won’t always be perfect or easy, but it is always changing. A hopeless time does not mean a hopeless life! You are never stuck. Life can potentially be everything you want it to be with someone you never believe existed. You can not deny hope. Life is full of choices, so please don’t let anyone else make them for you. Be present, and be mindful of your life, your company and where you position yourself. You aren’t a tree, you can move. Sure, the bad times shake us up, but they also remind us of who we don’t want to become and where we need to be. Never let anyone make you feel you’re not good enough, or treat you like an option. You are far greater. Never let someone control or manipulate you into anything less than you truly are. They are not permanent, but you are. Remember, you are amazing all by yourself. Strive to be better and do better with your life… you really are amazing. Thank God for you! – ML Malta

MIRACULOUS THINGS HAPPEN

WHEN PEOPLE ACTIVATE THEIR FAITH.

THROUGH ACTION YOU CAN HELP

SOMEONE, PRAY FOR SOMEONE, BE KIND

CONVENIENT TO YOU. MAKE TIME.

DO NOT THINK YOURSELF OUT OF ACTION.

HELP OTHERS AS YOU WOULD ALSO LIKE TO

BE HELPED. THERE IS A WORLD OF NEED

AND A WORLD OF PEOPLE ABLE TO HELP.

LET’S NOT BE IDLE WHEN ACTION

IS REQUIRED.
