When we are sad or troubled, sometimes we may think we would rather not to be born in this world, or it is better to just die…
But we cannot change the fact that we were already born here, so no matter how many why’s you ask or how you grumble is not going to change a thing… and of course we definitely cannot use death to solve the problem as committing suicide will definitely lead to a greater suffering!
Certainly this world has things that are painful and hard to accept, almost everyone has experienced some sort of hurting things or some very cruel realities, or may be some are currently facing such…
That is why our hearts unavoidably may be filled with doubts and weariness, but all these cannot change the past or what have been.
We cannot change our past, but we can decide what kind of present and future we are going to have… Rather than complaining or leaving God, might as well think clearly to know that only God can truly help, change and rescue us. Many times the pain is in our memory, it is our thought that locks us in the suffering. So we need to diligently seek the renewal, transformation and breakthrough in our mind continually.
When we continually absorb positive and optimistic thoughts, negative and pessimistic ones will reduce naturally. This will directly affect our emotions and feelings.

One of the positive thought we can meditate on is the birthday blessing I sent my cousin Dorcas the other day. I feel I should post it here today to share with you all too:
“You have a great mission to be born in this world. There is a beautiful plan of God for you to be born in this family. No matter how we came into this world, whether or not we like that reason, environment or circumstance, always remember you are specially sent from heaven to accomplish a great task; and you alone can complete that task, no one else can replace…”
When you are discouraged or depressed, take time to think on the words of Jesus, He also had moments when his heart was down:
“Now my heart is troubled, and what shall I say? `Father, save me from this hour’? No, it was for this very reason I came to this hour. Father, glorify your name…”
~ John12:27-28 ~
Therefore, let us continually fix our mind on this, keep on running fervently, know that you are a special agent sent from heaven…
