My affirmation for today:
I am blessed beyond measure. I have so much to be thankful for: this moment, this day, my life, my family, my home, my health, my ability to love, to create, to understand and be open-minded, to give, to help, and most importantly, to be proud of who I am. Desire, discipline, determination, and dedication have brought me to this point. With God’s guiding hand, I will continue to stay strong in faith, be positive, and keep moving forward to become the best I can be, in Jesus’ name, amen. ❤️
I was taught at an early age that heaven was an actual bright, beautiful place called paradise where you would go if you were a good and righteous person. And if you were a bad person, you would descend into a fiery, dark, evil place called hell. No one knows for sure what happens to us after we die. So for now, I believe you can create your own heaven or hell right here on earth. You are the only authority in your life and you get to choose. My quote below sums it up quite simply:
When all else fails, and you truly want to help yourself, reconnect with God (or whatever you call the entity or source from which you were created). Ask for help. You will receive the power, strength, and love from the source to overcome the obstacles you are currently facing in life. Don’t be stubborn, because it is impossible to do it alone. When you reconnect with the source and have the fundamental belief that you really can do this, anything is possible.
