"A Few Things that Encouraged and Helped Me in My Life"

Hello brothers and sisters in Christ, I wanna share a few things that encouraged me and helped me in my life. I hope it helps you too.

In 2017, I was 12 in 7th grade, and I had some friends who were really close to me. One day they wanted to be friends with a girl who was just distant from like everyone. 

I don't know if she was insecure about her features but none of us judged her; we studied in a convent school that taught value and respect. But something about her didn't feel right to me.

My best friend wanted to be her friend at the time, and our other friends didn't think they could trust her. By the end of 7th grade, we were all friends, but I still wasn't convinced. 

Deep in my heart, I felt that this friendship wasn't good, and I was right. In the 8th grade, I learned so much when true colors were shown, and sinful natures were exposed. 

In the 9th grade, she tried to say stuff about us to guys because the side of our convent school was an all-boys school, so she kept talking behind our backs from their school to ours, and it was a mess. I didn't trust her a bit.

Later on, those friends were suspended for having disrespected the school by making memes of teachers.

I lost my best friend of so many years just because she chose the wrong group of friends. I tried to convince her; now she's gone very off-track. I had no friends in 10th grade with my best friend taken away. 

Encouraged and Helped

Some things were said against me, but there was a Lady gifted by God who could see visions from God and counseled me beautifully about my friendship with that girl.

I just want to say to all teens who go through bad friendships, bad people, bad influence, just remember that God is there with you. I was a very reserved kid and did not have many friends; my circle wanted fame, and I didn't want that. I only wanted true and loyal friends.

Today, I'm glad I lost those friends because they have gone so off track in life... God bless them. And I'm grateful God saved me from those wicked ways of "talking smack behind the back," falling into trouble, and getting suspended. I'm thankful that I was saved.

Now I know the Bible so much more than ever before. I pray for the ones I love and those who need prayers for their good in Jesus's name. I love this verse:

  • "Whatever you ask in prayer believe you have received it and it will be yours " Mark 11:24

Here are a few verses to encourage whatever you are going through:

  • Ask, and you shall receive, seek, and you shall find, knock and the doors shall be opened for you.
  • Faithful is Our God, for He has kept his covenant for generations.
  • You will find me when you seek me with all your Heart.

And Lastly

  • Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.

"In Jesus' name, thank You, Our Father, for all that you have blessed me with; thank you for always being there for us, for me, my family, and my loved ones."

I hope this helps you, and don't quit praying. When troubles come your way, remember; Worry about nothing; instead, pray about everything.

God bless you all.

From me to you

Things that Encouraged and Helped Me

"Lets Teach Our Children to Love"

Why is it so difficult for our educators and society, in general, to understand that love and respect for one another taught from a young age can solve much of the world's hostility and social problems!

"Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it" (Prov 22:6).

Love is the answer!

Loyalty and Faithfulness

True loyalty springs from the heart and is wrapped in love. It is often in our most private moments that true loyalty, or the lack of it, is made known.
