long story short: acting on knowledge and rediscovering how simple a relationship with Our Father in Heaven is. 

But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

-Matthew 6:33, The Bible


He is the One, all else are zeroes, the only zeroes that add value are those placed behind the One.

Focus on building a relationship with Him and from there one will be able to pull strength.

How to reach Him?

For the Word of God is living and active.

Hebrews 4:12, The Bible

Don’t worry about anything, instead pray about everything.

Philippians 4:6, The Bible

Pray to build a relationship with God, one similar to any other human relationship. Tell Him about your day, beyond please, thank you and sorry. At the same time,

Ask and ye shall receive

Matthew 7:7, The Bible

On identity: Trust yourself to be moulded only by God.

Do not conform to the pattern of this world

-Romans 12:2, The Bible

I passed your word on to them, and the world hated them, because they belong to the world no more than I belong to the world.

-John 17:14, The Bible

He feels that he is finding his place in it, while really it is finding its place in him. 

– C.S. Lewis, Screwtape Letters

We are not necessarily doubting that God will do the best for us; we are wondering how painful the best will turn out to be.

– C.S. Lewis

On the body:

Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God?  You are not your own; you were bought at a price.  Therefore honor God with your body.

-1 Corinthians 6:19-20, The Bible

Finally, to ACT on these takeaways as..

Active habits are strengthened by repetition but passive ones are weakened 

– C.S. Lewis, Screwtape Letters

* will do a post on my favourITE bible quotes soon 🙂

* Been reading a lot of C.S. Lewis recently, excuse the lack if variety in quotes.

  1. I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty wkrth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners
    and blogers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more
    useful than ever before.

  2. This iss the right webpage for anyone who hopes to understand this topic.
    You realize a whole lot its almost tough
    to argue with you (not that I really will need to…HaHa).
    You definitely put a brand new spin on a subject which has been written about for years.

    Great stuff, just great!
