My father always sends me these inspirational emails almost every week and just a few days ago, I filtered all my email and started reading each one of them and one post got me so touched that I had to share it here. I hope after reading this, your thinking about life has somewhat changed. Even just for a bit. :)
TEN GUIDELINES FROM GOD
Life has dealt you a blow and all you do is sit and worry.
Or do you just enjoy fretting over every little thing that comes your way?
2. PUT IT ON THE LIST:
Something needs done or taken care of, put it on the list.
3. TRUST ME:
Once you’ve given your burdens to Me, quit trying to take them back.
Problems with the kids? Put them on My list.
Problem with finances? Put it on My list.
Problems with your emotional roller coaster?
For My sake, put it on My list. I want to help you.
4. LEAVE IT ALONE:
Don’t wake up one morning and say,
“Well, I’m feeling much stronger now, I think I can handle it from here..”
You gave Me your burdens and I’m taking care of them.
Leave them with Me and forget about them.
5. TALK TO ME:
I want you to forget a lot of things.
Forget what was making you crazy..
Forget the worry and the fretting because you know I’m in control..
I want to hear you talk about your friends and family.
6. HAVE FAITH:
I see a lot of things from up here that you can’t see from where you are.
I will continue to care for you, watch over you, and meet your needs.
Although I have a much bigger task than you,
You were taught to share when you were only two years old.
8. BE PATIENT:
I managed to fix it so in just one lifetime you could have so many diverse experiences.
You grow from a child to an adult, have children, change jobs many times, learn many trades, travel to so many places, meet thousands of people, and experience so much.
always rush, rush, rush.
9. BE KIND:
Be kind to others, for I love them just as much as I love you.
Please, know I love each of your differences.
10. LOVE YOURSELF:
As much as I love you, how can you not love yourself?
in return.. I am a God of Love. Love Me.
Love your neighbors. But also love yourself.
It makes My heart ache when I see you so angry with yourself when things go
wrong. You are very precious to me.
Don’t ever forget……
