Diagnosis: Imperfect Humanity.
Treatment: Patience & Persistence. .
It's cliche i know it, but im still going to say it anyhow, because i need the reminder and maybe so do you...."ROME WASNT BUILT IN A DAY." .
The Israelites knew they were going to the Promised Land. They had already been on this journey for some time, fought some giants, won some wars and overcome many struggles...yet, as they continued moving forward, it says "they got impatient with their journey along the way." This led to them grumbling, complaining and turning their backs against God. They wanted to arrive already. .
Maybe you've been there? You think you will be somewhere else by now, done something else by now, have something else by now. But you're here. In this moment. With what you have, with what you've done, with who you are. And you're unhappy with it and tired of the journey. .
Unfortunately hating it does not make the journey better. And complaining/grumbling against the God who has brought you this far is also not going to make you arrive any sooner.
Sometimes, we are being taken on a route that is safer than the shortcut. Sometimes there are some skills we need to learn, or people we need to meet along the way to prepare us for the destination. .
A while ago I came to realize just how awesome another day, another moment, another breath is...it means another chance. I don't know where your destination is, or how long you've been on this road trying to get there. But I do know that you will arrive---if you are patient with the journey and you are persistent with your walk . Trust God. Trust the process.

Been reserving this pics for a while.. Some might ask what was my reason behind my passion.
Since I was a kid I always had the need to reach out to orphans,it was my calling, a dream come through, but everyday as I grew up I do say to myself when will this dream come through.. I lost my mom to cancer some years back and this taught me what some children /orphans feel out there, that day was the worst day of my life,what it means to be motherless but what gave me hope was God because he promised me he is the Father to the fatherless and mother to the motherless.
February 18th a dream come through as I was led by the Spirit to Reach out for love @the compassion home for orphans and abandoned children, God directed me to the best volunteers, God directed and gave me ideas to make @Reachingoutforlove_initiative come through.

Bantuan dari Indonesia kembali terangi muramnya langit Gaza
Akibat pasokan listrik dan bahan bakar minyak yang semakin menipis, kehidupan di Jalur Gaza seakan mati suri tanpa penerang dan tanpa kehidupan

Jangan biarkan jantung Rumah Sakit Gaza berhenti berdetak. Mari bantu roda kehidupan rumah sakit Gaza kembali berdenyut dengan energi dari bangsa ini, bangsa Indonesia..
"You're probably wondering when will things change? When will it start to get better? Well I have great news for you, the blessings you deserve are about to arrive right now. So much will be lifted off of you. Changes might not happen right away, but it ALWAYS does. Sometimes it takes time to test your patience. To see how ready you are to step into change. Nothing is being held back from you.
Everything is happening for you even when it seems like it's against you. We're so stressed out these days, because we believe everything needs to happen right now. We forget that everything happens in perfect timing. We always want everything to happen instantly. If we don't see anything changing on the outside, we start to lose faith in the power to manifest our reality. We even might start doubting if it's even real or possible. You can't plant the seed and instantly pull it out to see if anything is growing.
Your role now is to water the thoughts, habits, and beliefs you want to manifest externally. Soon you will see what you've planted come into fruition. We have to be more patient and more trusting as we are doing the inner work.
You are making a lot of changes in your life and the energy of your mind, body, and soul is shifting to a higher frequency to align you to new experiences, new habits, new people, new energy, and a whole new mindset. Everything will suddenly change for you. It will all happen. However, your number one focus right now is to continue making the changes and don't give up on yourself.
Keep watering your seed. Give yourself the space you need to reconnect with inner-self. Now that you're going to be more patient, you'll be allowing the work to be done through you and for you. Soon you will notice the results of your efforts. You will see how powerful you are. You will notice that you have the ability to fully transform your life. Give yourself credit right now. You're on a beautiful journey." - via @idillionaire#riskhappy
