The name of the LORD is a fortified tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.” (Proverbs 18:10, NIV)

I was talking to a man the other day who had encountered a lot of difficulty in his life. Most of us will never face what this man faced. He had a tragic upbringing. He watched a family member be murdered, and then his girlfriend died suddenly in the prime of his life. He said it caused him so much pain and bitterness that he would have suicidal thoughts. He said, “I could hardly get away from it, and I was living in this place of destruction.” One day, he called on the name of the Lord! He cried out to God, and then he began to train himself to run long distances. He would run and run, and it was like he was running from his past and running toward God. He said as he stretched, pressed and reached every day, he realized that those emotional wounds began to heal. He said he was able to accomplish things he never thought possible. He became a doctor, and today, he has 35 employees.
How does that happen? He should have been a statistic. He should have never gotten out of his past because it was so painful. He said that it was only God who stretched him forward.
Today, you may have some things from the past that are causing you some problems. You may realize it was the way you were raised, or maybe something recently is trying to hold you back. Turn to God and run! Run into His arms of hope, forgiveness and acceptance. Let Him heal the hurts of the past and empower you to move forward into a bright and blessed future. You don’t have to stay stuck where you are. God wants to set you free to embrace the dreams and desires He has in store for you!
“The name of the LORD is a fortified tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.” (Proverbs 18:10, NIV) -Victoria Osteen

"I want to say to all the young women out there, there are going to be people out there who will try to undercut your success, or take credit for your accomplishments, or your fame, But if you just focus on the work and you don't let those people sidetrack you some day when you get where you are going some day you will look around and you will know that it was you, and the people who love you who put you there and that will be the greatest feeling in the world. Thank you for this moment."

Before I fall in love..

I wanna take a chance give me a reason to believe
Say you're the one that you'll always be
Someone to have and hold
With all my heart and soul
I need to know before I fall in love
Someone who'll stay around who warns
my ups and downs. Please tell me now before I fall in love...

I meet a lot of people who say they wouldn’t be caught dead inside of a church building, that their life is too messed up to be embraced by the arms of God, and that their previous failures are too monstrous to be forgiven by the grace of Jesus.
This false ideology that a human can be too broken for the all-consuming grace of our Lord and Savior is incorrect, and I pray that more churches will open up their doors to prove it so.

Nobody is too broken for the grace of Jesus.

We’ve all done things we aren’t proud of, said things that we wish we could take back, and been places we wouldn’t dare go visit again. And while many of us have found redemption through the sacrifice of Jesus, we must remember that there are millions of other people in this world who have yet to do the same.

The Apostle Paul states in 1 Corinthians 15:9-10, For I am the least of all the apostles. In fact, I’m not even worthy to be called an apostle after the way I persecuted God’s church. But whatever I am now, it is all because God poured out his special favor on me—and not without results. For I have worked harder than any of the other apostles; yet it was not I but God who was working through me by his grace.”
The truth behind Paul’s words are revitalizing and scandalous—that even a man who once persecuted the church of Jesus Christ has now been redeemed and forgiven by His grace. This is revolutionary for all who hear it. The story of Paul is one we can all learn from. He is the pinnacle example of somebody who was far from God but found favor through the grace of Jesus. A second chance awaited him, and that second chance was discovered through seeking repentance, asking for forgiveness and allowing the spirit of Christ to transform him.
No matter what you’ve done in life, understand that the grace and love of Jesus is waiting for you with open arms. You don’t need to reach a certain level of “goodness” before you can pray, walk into a church, or even read your bible. God will take you where you are, but he loves you too much to leave you that way. Remember, nobody is too broken for the grace of Jesus.
“For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people.” —Titus 2:11

Caged Bird

A free bird leaps on the back of the wind
and floats downstream till the current ends
and dips his wing in the orange suns rays and dares to claim the sky.

But a bird that stalks down his narrow cage
can seldom see through his bars of rage
his wings are clipped and his feet are tied so he opens his throat to sing.

The caged bird sings with a fearful trill
of things unknown but longed for still
and his tune is heard on the distant hill
for the caged bird sings of freedom.

The free bird thinks of another breeze
and the trade winds soft through the sighing trees
and the fat worms waiting on a dawn-bright lawn and he names the sky his own.

But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams
his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream
his wings are clipped and his feet are tied so he opens his throat to sing.

The caged bird sings with a fearful trill
of things unknown but longed for still
and his tune is heard on the distant hill
for the caged bird sings of freedom.”

Your love is everything..

When I am dry and thirsty Lord,

And I'm crying out for more,

I know I can trust in your love.

In the darkness in the night

When I'm starving for the light

I know I can trust in Your love

You keep no records of my sin,

and you don't remember all my shame.

Your love heals every disease

Your love fulfills my every need

Your love is everything to me

Your love is everything

I will not forget

I wont forget your promises

I will not forget

I wont forget your love.

Your Love Will Find Me (Psalm 139)

You were there when life began
Spoken words became a man
Formed in love my every part
You caused the beating of my heart

You're beside, behind, before
You surround me
You're everywhere

You chart the path ahead of me
Show me all that I can be Every moment you are near In every step, through every fear

There is nowhere I can go... To be without You
You're everywhere

Looking to the Heavens, You're there
And in the dark depths of despair
Even there Your love will find me

Knowing that I'm never alone
Even if Your hand takes my home
To the other side of the sea

Your love will find me
Your love will find me

Precious are Your thoughts to me
More wonderful than I can see
As I cannot count the sand
I cannot count the things You've planned

For when I wake up everyday
To face the morning
You meet me there
You're everywhere

Looking to the Heavens, You're there
And in the dark depths of despair
Even there Your love will find me

Knowing that I'm never alone
Even if Your hand takes my home
To the other side of the sea

Looking to the Heavens, You're there
And in the dark depths of despair
Even there Your love will find me
Your love will find me

Knowing that I'm never alone
Even if Your hand takes my home
To the other side of the sea

Your love will find me...

Love Will Find You (Revisited)

I know you’ve lost your faith in love
I can hear it in your wistful sighs

Yet it’s as certain as the morning sun
exploding daily in the eastern skies

Have a little patience my dear friend
love dances to none but her own rhyme

It’s not over I promise, it’s yet to begin
but maybe today is just not her time 

While I see your sorrow in every tear
it’s true that love cares for her own

Remember I told you love will find you 
and then you’ll never again feel so alone

Being Single...

Being SINGLE is my choice, my decision that I've been sticking and fighting with for a years already. I believe that there are worse things than being alone or single. Being single while trusting God is actually God's will that I've been obeying. It's really hard because temptation is always there but I have to trust God, His beautiful love story for me. I'm patiently waiting because someday I will look back to this day where I would be proudly say that I made the right and best decision in life. Being single is about loving myself and regaining my health that once was been suffered. Being single is also regaining my Self confidence, exploring my dreams and acquiring knowledge. Being single, is the perfect time to recharge, reflect and get in touch with family and friends. Being single makes me productive,  more independent and experience real Happiness. Being single means I believe in TRUE LOVE AT GOD'S PERFECT TIME.

Once God has already sent the right man into my life, Surely, I will make him read this blog and He will be proud of me... I'm so excited for it to happen.

Someday I will look back...

As of writing this, my eyes is dancing in tears already... 

Someday I will look back to this day where I chose not to settle to someone nor to anyone I don't love that no kind of riches can satisfy the void I feel inside and make my longing heart be secured. Someday I will look back to this day where I started to hope in love again and have faith that the right person will come into my life at God's perfect time. Someday I will look back to this blog where I was able to release my sentiments and recorded all important Life's reflection including personal hardship and failures that God allowed me to experience. Someday I will look back to this day where I finally declared that I am no longer a victim of earthly lust, selfish desires and yesterday's failures. Someday I will look back to this day where I realized that God allowed some things not to happen because He wants me to heal and he removed people that is not worthy in my life. Someday I will look back and Thank God for my life that I fall seven times but I stand up Eight. Someday I will look back and thank God for reminding me that I am worthy, I am his princess, stronger and better and He has beautiful plans for my life. Someday I will look back to this day where I have decided to let go all things and people who did not value me and forget the person who had forsaken me. Someday I will look back to this day where I have released forgiveness to those people who judge and wronged me. 

Someday I will look back that I have decided to love God because he is everything and the ultimate source of unlimited provision and Someday I will look back to this day where I have decided to keep going to the right path where I can live free and loved....

So I've been thinking this lately because many people kept asking me about my love life. I'm not dating anyone since June 2015 up to this day. So here it is, I have decided to rest for a while since I had experienced three heartbreaks in just a year, Imagine that! I've got a long list of men I've dated for these past few years and I'm sick with that. For these past months I have decided to focus on my health and take time to love myself more. I realized so many important things in all areas of my life and how I achieved being peaceful mentally, emotionally and spiritually. When it comes to a guy or having a partner, I believe in God's perfect timing. I never lose faith in love despite of what I've been through. I'm not after looks of a person because for me goodness of the heart and being a God loving person is very important. I believe If a man has a good heart it will reflects outside and all good things will follow upon his life. Why I like a God loving person? because for me, he puts God first before anything else and He doesn't go to church only but He knows how to apply God's word in his life and that what makes him a Man of Integrity.

I have some suitors but I don't feel to fall in love or invest time and energy with them. I am guarding my heart because I've learned from my past mistakes. Yeah , I miss someone, the last one even though we haven't talked nor see each other for a long while yet quite sometimes I think of him, I cant avoid. But I am not wishing about him... so there.

I Have The Patience To Be Strong...

    I have the patience to be strong through the changes in my life. When the world around me appears unsteady, it would be easy to give in to fear, but my courage rises up and helps me to be patient. At times, my life is overflowing with great abundance and blessings, but there are times when I must wait patiently. I can be patient because I am confident of what lies ahead. I am like the farmer who labors hard during the fall and enjoys the fruit of his labor in the spring. There are seasons in my life where I must simply work hard and then wait for my hard work to bring forth the results I desire.Regardless of how long it takes my hard work to pay off, I am certain that my actions are attracting fortune my way.I am positive about my future and I refuse to allow myself to grow weary.

      Hope is the force that fuels my  positive attitude about patience. I believe within my heart that my best days are ahead of me. Therefore, whatever unpleasant situation I may encounter is only temporary.Learning to respect life’s pace is essential to being able to enjoy life. I am content with living in the moment, taking pleasure in what I have rather than wishing for something else. I know that my hard work and patience will be rewarded in due time.

      Today, I choose to be patient and maintain my composure. I exercise self-control in the midst of chaos, knowing that things get better. By focusing on what I have with a grateful and strong heart.

Love always♥mhargie♥

God, be my strength!

” He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak” (Isaiah 40:29, NIV)."

Oftentimes, when we are facing a difficulty, it’s easy to become weary in our minds and emotions. Trying to figure it all out in our own strength can be exhausting. But we weren’t meant to try to figure everything out, we were meant to trust. We were meant to call on Him and let Him be the hero of our story!

I had become so stressed out these past few days because first I wanted to do some things but I'm not able even though I prayed for it to happen. Consequently, I had to let it go and move forward. Maybe it is not for me, maybe God doesn't want me to be there. 
:-( okay.

Secondly, some people might do not understand that I care...  but I don't owe anyone any explanations of my personal decisions and hardship.  Lastly, so here again the battle that I've been fighting and hiding inside of me. It is like a party visiting me every week.. (im not referring to an actual party). 

I've been looking and searching for a right theme for this blog because I'm not contented yet with my theme although it looks great and beautiful but I think I need a simple one so I can post easily with less customization. I need more time for a lot of changes...

5 Reasons God Makes Us Wait -It's frustrating, but can be transforming...

Perhaps you know the feeling of waiting for your phone to charge?
You've run out of batteries, you've plugged the phone in and now there's nothing to do but sit and wait? And even it really only takes a matter of minutes (and even though it's nothing more than a phone), you start to feel tense and anxious, wondering how long this could possibly take.
Most people don't like to wait. We often get frustrated waiting on fast food or waiting behind the slow car in the fast lane. We are always in a rush to get to the next place or the next thing.
This mindset often carries over into our spiritual lives with us rushing to the next big thing. 

But while most of us are in a hurry, it seems God is usually not in a hurry. The Scriptures say He is slow at going about things. It seems He always has a plan and a purpose for everything.

The problem with waiting is not having all the details. From our perspective, we have everything figured out and we want God to move within our time frame.
But God rarely does things according to our timeframe, and because of this we can easily get discouraged. If we aren't careful, we'll think He's uncaring or mad at us.
In the Gospels we see this happening to Mary and Martha while they are waiting on Jesus to come and heal their brother, Lazarus. When Jesus finally shows up, He is accused of taking too long. 

God always has good reasons for making us wait. Waiting is a part of life and one of God's tools for developing people. The Bible is full of stories of people having to wait on God, such as Noah, Abraham, Moses, Joseph, David, Daniel, Jesus, Paul and countless others.
In studying the lives of these great people, I've discovered 5 reasons God makes us wait:

1. Waiting Reveals Our True Motives

Waiting has a way of bringing out the best and worst in people. People who don't have good motives won't wait long because they're not interested in the commitment it takes to see something through. They're too interested in short-term gains or success.
Most of us have good intentions, but a lot of what we want to accomplish is an attempt to make a name for ourselves or for our own egos. It hurts to say this, but it's often true.

2. Waiting Builds Patience In Our Lives

Patience in waiting for small things leads to having patience in the bigger things. If we can't wait for God to do a small thing, we certainly can't wait for something bigger.
Our problem is our perspective is usually wrong. We tend to think the bigger things in life are finances and possessions, while God thinks influencing and changing people is more important.

3. Waiting Builds Anticipation

Why do children get so excited around Christmas? Because the wait has produced anticipation. We tend to appreciate things the longer we have to wait for them.

A few years ago, my family and I were going through a difficult season. We had to live with my mother-in-law for a few years. During this time the Lord assured me that one day we would own a home of our own. It took a few years to see this happen, but when the day finally came, we could hardly contain ourselves.
Because of having to wait so long, we tend to cherish and take care of it more than others might. People tend to treasure the things they have to wait for.

4. Waiting Transforms Our Character

Waiting has a way of rubbing off the rough edges of our lives. Most of us know the story of Moses delivering the Israelites from the Egyptians. It's a grand story of God doing great miracles.
But few sermons talk about Moses having to wait in the desert 40 years before God came to him. God used this time of waiting to transform his character. We know this because when he was a young man he was brash and impatient. In his impetuousness he killed a man and hid the body. When his sin was made public, he ran for his life and was exiled to the desert. When he was given a second chance he opted to do it God's way and in God's time.
In the end, the Israelites were delivered from slavery and Moses became a great leader. Waiting transformed the life of Moses and it does the same for you and I.

5. Waiting Builds Intimacy and Dependency Upon God

The reason we are able to read about the great men and women of the Bible is because they all had one thing in common. They were all people who learned their success in life was directly proportionate to their intimacy and dependency upon God. For them, a relationship with God wasn't a get rich quick scheme. For many of them it was a matter of life and death.
The good news is that God never asks us to wait without Him.
Waiting during the difficult times developed their relationship with God. 

Some of the most intimate relationships we have in our lives are because a friend stood in the trenches with us during the heat of the battle. Maybe this is what the scripture means when it says we have a friend that sticks closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24).
The reason we get to read the stories of these great men and women is because they went through the difficulties of life with God. In the end, they enjoyed the process with God and the promise of God.

I've always believed God is just as interested in the journey as he is the destination. If not, all the biblical accounts would only include the feel good parts and not the good, the bad and the ugly of the times of waiting. We may not always understand why we have to wait, but the good news is that God never asks us to wait without Him.

4 Truths That Will Turn Your Frown Upside Down by Joyce Meyer

Would you like to be in a good mood every day? You are probably thinking, Yes, of course I would. Who wouldn’t? I spent a lot of years being controlled by a variety of moods and believing I had no choice in how I felt. I envied all the “happy people.” I used to wonder, What is their secret? Why them and not me?
Then I finally learned that our mind, mouth, moods and attitudes are all intricately connected. First you think, and then your thoughts turn into words that you speak, and the two of them together affect you emotionally and turn into moods and attitudes.
For years, I paid no attention to what I was thinking, and I didn’t make the connection between my thoughts and the rest of my life. But the Lord has taught me many things from His Word about the “mind connection” since those early days, and I’m excited to share some of those truths with you.

You Can Choose How You Think

Although we don’t always have the power to change every unpleasant circumstance in our lives, we do have the power to change our outlook. Nobody enjoys a troubling or painful circumstance, but I’ve found if we look at it in a hopeful, faith-filled way, we can watch God work all things out for our good.
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."
-Romans 8:28

Enjoying life begins with the thoughts you choose to think. Yes, it is that simple! No matter what is going on in your life today, if you will choose happy, hope-filled thoughts based on God’s Word, you will feel happier. Our thoughts are intricately connected to our feelings, so if we want to feel better, we need to think better.
Think of the mind like the gas tank in your automobile. Your automobile will run well, or perhaps not even run at all, depending on what kind of fuel you put into it. In the same way, when you choose your thoughts carefully, your quality of life will improve in amazing ways!
Sure, there are some people who are born with a temperament that makes it easier for them to look on the bright side of life than others, but even they have to make choices about their thoughts and attitudes toward life.
Be honest with yourself and think about what you have been mentally focusing on and how you have been feeling emotionally and even physically. I feel certain you will see a definite connection. Nothing good comes from thinking sour, critical, and negative thoughts, but something good always comes when we think according to God’s plan for our life.

You Can Change How You Think

Through His death and resurrection, Jesus offers us a new way of living; however, a new way of thinking will always precede this new way of living. Right thinking and right attitudes are roadmaps that allow us to reach our destination.
Romans 12:2 says, Do not be conformed to this world (this age), (fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs). But be transformed (changed) by the (entire) renewal of your mind (by its new ideals and its new attitude), so that you may prove (for yourselves) what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God….
This Scripture is so important for us to understand! God has a good, acceptable, and perfect plan for you and me, and the way we can experience it is not to think like the world thinks, but to be changed entirely by learning to renew our mind and think the way God thinks. If you want to have what God wants you to have, learn to think like God thinks!
Ephesians 4:22-23 is one of my favorite groups of scriptures in the Bible. Verse 22 says to strip yourselves of your former nature. Then verse 24 tells us to put on the new nature (the regenerate self) created in God’s image.
How do we do that? Verse 23 gives us the key: And be constantly renewed in the spirit of your mind [having a fresh mental and spiritual attitude].
So, the way to “put off” your old life and “put on” the new is to constantly renew your mind and attitude. It begins with filling our minds with God’s Word, then choosing to think and speak the positive, faith-filled things He says about our lives.

You Can Think Positive Things On Purpose

Did you know you can jump-start your day by thinking and speaking good things on purpose as one of your first acts in the morning? It’s an exercise that only takes a few minutes, but it will be valuable to you all day. I encourage you to meditate on God’s Word and speak out things like:
  • This is the day God has made, and I am going to enjoy it! (Psalm 118:24)
  • I can handle whatever comes my way today through Christ Who is my strength. (Philippians 4:13)
  • Today, I am strong and energetic. (Isaiah 40:28-31)
  • I have favor with God and man everywhere I go. (Luke 2:52)
  • Everything I lay my hand to prospers and succeeds. (Deuteronomy 30:19; Joshua 1:8)
  • I enjoy being a blessing to others. (1 Timothy 6:18)
  • I am thankful for all that God has done for me. (1 Thessalonians 5:18)
  • God is working on my problems, and I can wait patiently because His timing is perfect. (Psalm 31:15; 37:7; 46:1)
A negative mind and mouth will produce negative moods, attitudes and in all probability, a miserable day. But the positive approach of setting your mind in an uplifting direction, full of godly, faith-filled thoughts will have a good effect on you and your entire day.

Change Takes Time and Practice

Renewing our mind, mouth, moods and attitudes isn’t always easy, but it is possible with God’s help. I have personally been working toward this goal for almost 40 years, and although I have not arrived at perfection, I have made amazing progress. I have successful days, and I also have days when I feel like I’ve failed miserably, but I believe with God’s help I can keep growing.
If you desire greater emotional stability, and the ability to maintain a consistent good attitude no matter what your circumstances are, then make it a goal and don’t give up until you have reached it.
A walk begins with one step and then another and another. No matter how long your journey seems, if you take enough steps in the right direction, you will eventually arrive at your desired destination…and truly have the life you’ve always wanted.

I just want God. I want God inside me. I want God to play in my bloodstream the way sunlight amuses itself on water...

Love always♥mhargie♥
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things. Philippians 4:8

Be careful of your thoughts, for your thoughts become your words. Be careful of your words, for your words become your actions. Be careful of your actions, for your actions become your habits. Be careful of your habits, for your habits become your character. Be careful of your character, for your character becomes your destiny. 

Our words create action. Our words can create intimacy or separation. With our words we can motivate ourselves to do things we never thought we could do, and our words can also move others to step forward into their own personal power so they can be of service to their community. Words can calm us or excite us. Words can actually change the direction of a nation. So watch what you think and be aware of the words that come from your thoughts, and the actions that follow your words.

A habit is an action we do regularly, often without thinking. It's just what we do. If we do an action and it feels good or we get the results we want, then we often repeat it over and over. Some habits are beneficial and some can be detrimental. If it's detrimental, it's usually called an addiction. If it's beneficial, it's called a good discipline. Our day is full of small little "habits" that we do unconsciously. Some of us are habitually tidy, or messy, or early, or late, or rude, or courteous, or happy, or angry. These are all habitual ways of being. So, our habits become who we are, or they become our character.

Others know us by our character. It's our stamp of individuality. It's all of our distinctive qualities. When we describe someone, we are describing the person's character. "He's a great guy!" "When I want something to be done right, I give it to her!" "When I'm around him, I watch my pockets, because he's always trying to get me to buy into a scheme" "When I think of her, a smile comes on my face and I just feel at peace." Our character comes from the thoughts and actions we do habitually through time.

The thoughts and actions we do habitually through time determines our destiny. If I think negative thoughts and if I am filled with judgments towards myself and others, my actions will follow my thoughts and I will get what I focus on. Most people will not want to be around me, because they don't like being judged and they don't like hearing me judge others. I will feel lonely and victimized, which will cycle around and around and in time my destiny will appear bleak.

However, if I think positive thoughts and take positive actions toward my goals, my destiny can be one of joyful and uplifting, with moments of gleefulness. I might fall and get a few bruises along the way, but if my habit is to get up one more time than I fall, my destiny will be one of success. People will want to be around me because of my positive thinking. They will want to know how I create so many wonderful things in my life. Because of my abundance and my generous character, I'll freely give the joy and love that percolates in my heart. Thus, by holding positive thoughts, habitually taking positive action, I create a character destined for upliftment.
