“Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage, and confidence. “

– Og Mandino –

The Storm of Life

Everything about being a man lies in the heart, with a pure heart one will see God and having a kind heart blessings will be within reach to survive the storm of life. With a wicked heart the storm of life will be inevitable.

“I can’t stop lovin’ you”, said the Lord. Heaven would like us all to become fortunate in living. So here is the first teaching to life to serve as a guide which was recounted in the Sermon in the Mount, or on a Plain – The Beatitudes. One should think of this and follow. Time comes when one’s heart will speak how lucky a man would be with a light on his path.

Each beatitude depicts the ideal heart condition of a citizen of Heaven. Thus, a believer experiences abundant spiritual blessings.

The Beatitude is the first and longest teaching of Jesus Christ. It shows how people ought to live – not simply according to a set of rules but by an inner revolution of attitude and outlook, giving men the power to live up to it.

About happiness, it is not the go-getters, the tough ones, those who bend the rules, who are the real successes. The truly happy ones are those who recognize the spiritual poverty of self-reliance and learn to depend wholly on God. Everything else follows from this.

🌄The people who can be certain of a future are the humble, the forgiving, the pure, those who set their hearts on what is right, who try to heal the rifts.

And here and now, these are the ones who put the seasoning into life, who stop the rot, who light up the way. By what they do. 🍏


🍏FORTUNATE are those wbo have the spirit of the poor, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

🍏FORTUNATE are the gentle, they shall possess the land.

🍏FORTUNATE are those who mourn, they shall be comforted.

🍏FORTUNATE are those who hunger and thirst for justice, for they shall be satisfied.

🍏FORTUNATE are the merciful, for they shall find mercy.

🍏FORTUNNATE are those with a pure heart, for they shall see God.

🍏FORTUNATE are those who work for peace, they shall be called children of God.

🍏FORTUNATE are those who are persecuted for the cause of justice, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

🍏FORTUNATE are you, when people insult you and persecute you and speak all kinds of evil against you because you are my followers.

Be glad and joyful, for a great reward is kept for us in heaven.

*The Book of Matthew
