Daily Prompt; I Believe


http://dailypost.wordpress.com, DP, Daily Prompt

For today’s prompt, tell us three things that you believe in your heart to be true. Tell us three things you believe in your heart to be false.

I believe in people.

I believe in every soul there is goodness. We are blinded by the true soul because walls of various heights are built around hearts. Unkind words, broken loves, unfairness are just a few reasons we may not see clearly when we look at another person.children

I believe in my instincts.

I believe that for most of us, our inner instincts tell us the truth. Instincts can make us aware of a cheating spouse or boyfriend. We can sometimes be alerted to danger coming near us. Money is a great time to use our instincts. The problem is when we ignore them. Later, we can usually look back and say, if  I would just have listened to my instincts.mirror

I believe in God.

I believe in God because I have never found a human that has been as receiving as God is. God is forgiving. Friends and family may forgive in their own time, but God forgives immediately. I believe that when I can’t get myself out of a situation, God will lend his hand to me. I believe God will never give me more than I can handle and teaches me many times that I have more strength than I thought to survive this life.christ-is-risen

Three things I do not believe in or believe to be false are;

I will not  come back as a butterfly. I think and believe that once I am deceased I will remain to live with Jesus.butterflies 2

I don’t believe I can win at everything I try. God gave me my own talent and he gave you yours. I can not be good at all, but I can be good at one thing.jelly fish

I don’t believe in Fairly Tales. I was read this when I was young. I thought I would grow up to be a beautiful princess, get married and live happily ever after.

Life is real. We make it what we want. We have to work hard for what we receive unless it is a gift from the heavens.

I have to be strong enough to lean on myself and not think that everyone will help me out due from my own foolish mistakes.

I believe life is fair and we have every opportunity just as others do. But the happy ever after, no I don’t believe in that. Why? Maybe because at age 59, I have not experienced a happy ever after in any situation, but have enjoyed many precious moments.Rules of Life (2)

Just Me, Nothing More


English: The Woodside Hotel and the big tree

He is behind the tree, that big one over on Clark Street, the one that has a zillion leaves flowing from each tiny branch, yes that is the one, you remember. He is standing underneath of it, hiding in the flowing shadows.

He is waiting for just one to walk by. The one who has no confidence, the one who walks this earth afraid to step forward. Have you seen him or her? Do you recognize the person that I am talking about? No, yes? Well he knows, he always knows.

His nose picks out the sense of fear, scared, weak, shy. Yes, he is waiting to pounce, to take what little you have left. Your entire life having fought to be the one that you were meant to be, but have not been able to have enough belief or strength in yourself to get to the point, that HE will not be hiding behind the shadows, ready to jump out at you, and scare you to death.

Did someone ever tell you that you were dumb, stupid, worthless, or unwanted? Did that one superior ever thump you on the head, knock you off of your feet, break a tooth out?

Did you ever sit in your bedroom on your bed, in the dark hours, and cry yourself to sleep, until morning finally broke through your windows, letting you know that this is a new day, that today you can have new hope?

Did you ever try your hardest to be picked, to be chosen, to have your name called in a school game out on the play ground, but no matter how you smiled, or begged, or kept still, your name was always called last? Did you ever wish that you belonged to that certain group, wore those clothes with the expensive name tag on the back, have those shoes with the familiar name on the side?

When we are children, we are innocent, and believe that everyone loves us, that we are precious to family, and when we go to school, we begin to see the differences between us and them? You begin to notice their style, their laughter, their popularity.

When you become a teenager, you have even more problems with fitting in. You discover that your friends have girlfriends or boyfriends, and you still have no one. The school dance comes around, and you have no one to ask.

It can be a rough life to live as an adult, and we carry with us many of the hurtful things that were said or done to us from our youth and childhood. Some of us have families or people who have spent time with us and have helped us get over the hump of youth to adulthood, and others have fallen by the tracks, seeming hard to stand, only able to still crawl.

We all need a helping hand, someone who loves us for who we are, not what we wear, not how many friends we have, or who we are married to. We need to know that each of us is worthy of obtaining anything in this world that we so desire.

Thank goodness there is God, a superior who loves us in spite of all of our sins. I know that there are a lot of people in the world who do not believe in God, and this is sad to me, but I can not live those lives, but I can pray for lost life, that the soul will turn one day to the warmth of God and reach up to the hands that are so patiently waiting for them.

Remember the big tree over on Clark Street, the many leaves that form dark shadows in the night? A place where evil and bad things are waiting for someone to come by, so that he can reach out and snatch that soul? His nose can sense all weakness in the world.

I am not trying to preach, and I am not trying to place fear in anyone. I just want to give food for thought here. I have been on that sidewalk, edging closer to where he is standing, but God reached out and grabbed me, and placed me on another side walk, closer to home, keeping me safe with his love. I am so thankful that I have been lifted by the hands of a power, much greater than even what I think I have. I am a common soul, nothing special, not rich, don’t live in a fancy home, don’t have name brand clothes, but I am blessed, truly blessed.
