"Never stop BELIEVING because MIRACLES happen everyday!"
Around six months after our son Todd's death, our younger son Brandon (then almost three) began stuttering. Brandon and I went for a walk each night, and about this time we saw a dead, decaying bird lying on the side of the road. Brandon referred to the bird as being "dead, just like Todd." He spoke of Todd often, and many people suggested that he needed professional help to deal with Todd's death.
As I prayed about Brandon's problem, it seemed that the Lord was telling me to bury the bird. But I argued against this. I did not even want to touch this one!
Finally, I gave in. We scooped up the bird in a bucket and brought it home. I told Brandon to shake the bird and call it; I did the same. I then told him that only Jesus could wake the little bird. I quoted the Bible and told him that one day Jesus would come back and call with a loud voice, and all who loved Him would come alive again. I said we would see Todd the minute Jesus woke him.
The next morning when Brandon woke up, he did not stutter, and he has not stuttered since that date. A miracle? Yes, I believe it was, and even though the idea to bury the bird seemed ridicules to me it had been the answer to my prayers.
Never stop believing because miracles happen everyday!
What is pain? Pain is a reminder. It reminds us our mistakes. Pain is an alarm of upcoming beautiful days.
There are two types of pain in the world.
First is physical pain like tooth ache, body ache, back pain, neck pain etc. and second is heart pain.
This pain has not any medicine yet. This pain only reduced by bearing it. Rumi says "The cure for pain is in the pain."
When we forget God and run after world and pain enters into our life because all the worldly things are painful.
Pain is the only one thing which brings us close to God.
In pain we never remember mom or dad or any friend. We just look at the sky and start praying.
God is the only one who understands us and support us throughout the bad time. Every relation in the world remains because of some selfishness and our relation with God is only remains because of love.
Pain changes your life. It will increase your conscience.
For the first time when you face the pain you feel like going mad.
You cry a lot, try a lot and after that you will pray and now you are on the right path.
Everything created by God is for our benefits so do as with pain. Pain is necessary. It opens our heart and mind. It makes balance in our life.
Pain plays an important part in our life.
Nobody can escape from it even all the angles, God and Goddesses of different religion who came into this world had to bear pain.
When we are in pain we try hard to get rid of it and here pain shows us the right path.
We become very conscious about our Karma which we always forget in our good time.
Rumi says "These pains you feel are messengers. Listen to them." Some painful situations continuously happen until we learn a lesson from them and every time it changes us.
Karma. Our karma tells us about our situations. At which directions we are going.
What we give is what we get.
We should learn to spread happiness if we want happiness in our life.
One should learn to watch their action because our actions become our karma and our karma leads us to happiness or sorrow.
The best lesson pain teaches us to feel others pain as well.
Pain teaches us how to pray for ourself and for others.
If you want to escape from your future pains then start spreading happiness into others because pain is a result of our bad deeds. No good deeds give pain. Think about yours actions and ask yourself that what your actions is giving to others.
When we love someone whole heartedly we tend to give and give and give without expectations.
And when we full of thankful to God then we are so happy and everything becomes so easy.
Gratitude is the best way to get rid of your pain. Gratitude solves so many problems.
Gratitude gives us stress free happy life and I am sure like me you all also want stress free happy life.
When I read on that time I thought to share this with you guys. So let a practice it and have happy life.
My favorite movie of all-time is Cool Runnings. It is loosely based on the true story about the 1988 Jamaican Bobsled team who competed in the Calgary Winter Olympics.
I loved it as a 12 year old kid, and always kept it as my favorite movie.
It is silly, but also inspirational.
When I watch the movie now, I look at it at a much deeper level.
Here’s what I mean. After they qualify for the Olympics, they get three runs, on three separate days.
The first run is a disaster, the second run is incredible, and the third one is when they crash.
I am going to break these runs down for you and compare them to everyday life.
The driver of the 4-Man sled was obsessed with watching the Swiss team practice and compete.
Before the Jamaican’s first run, they copied the Swiss’ team style and technique and they weren’t true to themselves. Their first run was a bust, and they ended up in last place after the first day.
After some reflection and pep talks, the team went back to their roots. They were true to themselves, and they were 100% prepared for the second run. Everything clicked and they moved into 8th place.
The final run they once again were true to themselves. They were pumped up, and more than prepared. Their starting push time was incredible and the announcer even went as far as calling them “champs” during that run.
Unfortunately, that rickety old sled they used couldn’t hold up and they crashed. Everyone knows what happened next. They picked up the sled and finished the race.
Now, why am I breaking down Cool Runnings? I think you can use the three runs they had and can make them relate to your lives.
You can be like the first run and try to be someone else. You can be jealous of other people. You can go off course and not be true to yourself.
And like that last place run by the Jamaican team, you may also see yourself finishing in last.
You won’t be happy when you look at yourself in the mirror, because you aren’t being true to who you are.
You can be like the second run and be true to yourself. God gives us all so many special and unique gifts.
Whether it’s the gift of kindness or being understanding, the gift of humor, or just being a loyal friend, we all have something that makes us who we are.
When you realize what you can offer, it is important to use our gifts for good. When you do this, you will see the fruits of your labor.
The third run is the true reality of life.
Sometimes you can be prepared. Sometimes you can go into a situation or relationship with all of the best intentions in the world.
Sometimes you can be the best “you” possible, but something will still go wrong. That is life.
However, just like those four Jamaicans who crashed the sled, you can get up and finish the race. Always finish the race.
