I welcome you…

I welcome you ;
the good , the bad,
the nasty , the sad,
the disappointing, the revealing,
the expected, the unknown,
the peaceful, the envious,
the misfortunes, the glorious,
the lessons, the blessings,
the falls, the climbs,
the moments, the memories,
the gut wrenching pain, the freedom from letting go,
the venom hissed, the healing words,
the spite, the hugs,
the hurt, the love,
the cold, the warmth,
the luxury, the necessities,
the old me, the new me,
the family, the friends,
the betrayals, the loyalty,
the kindness, the arrogance,
the small things, the finer details,
the vivid colours, the rough edges,
the death in life and the life in death.
I welcome you all.
Thank you for making my life dazzle me on.
Grateful. Extremely truly grateful..

-Leandra Rodrigues.

Climb with Jesus.

My dear friends,
Often in life soaring after a fall, you find yourself trapped again or falling again, and the fear & anxiety that crawls makes you feel like you don’t know how to control this change of tides.
That’s because you don’t control it.

God does.

Why do we go to HIM in our dire times of needs , but often take Him for granted in our peaceful time? Why often we fail to Praise Him, acknowledge Him ? Why to fit in with non believers we pretend to be loose on grounds of faith? Or to fit in with firm believers , we pretend we know Him the most?
And yet often the non believers ask us to pray to Him?

What is our faith lacking?

If you have read tons of books in your lifetime, have you read your BIBLE thoroughly? From the Old testament to the New?

It gives us a choice between life & death, good & evil, and advices us this :
Deuteronomy 30:19 CHOOSE LIFE.

When facing a battle and we expect defeat, it says :
Deuteronomy 31:6 BE DETERMINED AND CONFIDENT.

Deuteronomy 31:8 THE LORD HIMSELF WILL LEAD YOU & BE WITH YOU. HE WILL NOT FAIL YOU OR ABANDON YOU, SO DO NOT LOSE COURAGE OR BE AFRAID.

Exodus 33:14 THE LORD SAID , “I WILL GO WITH YOU AND I WILL GIVE YOU VICTORY.”

Victory is ours if He is our sheild.

Make His word your armour and not even the raving oceans can defeat you. Even whilst drowning you will have hope of being saved, you will know that HE IS WITH YOU.

Remember this my friend,
Numbers 18: 20 I, THE LORD, AM ALL YOU NEED.

Ecclesiastes 7:14 WHEN THINGS ARE GOING WELL FOR YOU, BE GLAD, AND WHEN TROUBLE COMES, JUST REMEMBER : GOD SENDS BOTH HAPPINESS AND TROUBLE , YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT.

There is simply no need to explain life and how meaningful it is, especially when Our Bible has all the answers.

Remember, those battles against God’s chosen people (Israel) were the WILL OF GOD. They had to learn to be faithful to HIM, they had to acknowledge THAT HE IS ALL WORTHY, ALL MIGHTY, EVER SO FAITHFUL, MERCIFUL & LOVING. THAT HE IS POSSESSIVE of His chosen, that He does NOT tolerate substitutes . That every battle against you is HIS CALL FOR YOU TO TURN TO HIM, GLORIFY HIM , HAVE FAITH IN HIM.

How countless are the substitutes in our lives when it comes to God?
Can we too learn to be open to HIM at all times?
He knows our deepest thoughts, our plans, everything that we do.

Proverbs 15:3 THE LORD SEES WHAT HAPPENS EVERYWHERE , HE IS WATCHING US, WHETHER WE DO GOOD OR EVIL.

Remember :

Ecclesiastes 3:11 HE HAS SET THE RIGHT TIME FOR EVERYTHING.

His will for us surpasses the plans we have for our life. Let’s go to Him & let him guide us through our climb.

Jeremiah 29 : 11-13 I ALONE KNOW THE PLANS I HAVE FOR YOU, PLANS TO BRING YOU PROSPERITY AND NOT DISASTER, PLANS TO BRING ABOUT THE FUTURE YOU HOPE FOR.

THEN YOU WILL CALL TO ME, YOU WILL COME AND PRAY TO ME , AND I WILL ANSWER YOU. YOU WILL SEEK ME AND YOU WILL FIND ME, BECAUSE YOU WILL SEEK ME WITH ALL YOUR HEART.

Stay blest all of you.

May Lord give you peace , courage & faith to embrace your climb and walk through it with HIM.

God forgives.

If you remember the incident where Jesus saves a woman from being stoned to death for her sin had caught light,
you should know God forgives , even those that feel unworthy.
And His mercy surpasses every judgement.
For everyone is a sinner and humanely prone to commit mistakes, except God who is alone without sin.
Big or small your sin/mistake will not be used against you if you repent/turn/learn.

While a crime is unforgivable, sin is not.
Know the difference.
Find it in you to forgive yourself & people when you find it extremely difficult.
Find it in you to accept your wrongs & take charge to better yourself.
Find it in you to believe in Him all the time.
For HE is not only good, but Amazing all the time.

I wondered…

I wondered what it was like to be ignited ?
to sing in the dark with the rhythm of the light?

I wondered what is was like to be embraced?
to be accepted with the flaws,
to not be ridiculed or chastened?

I wondered what it was like to be free ?
to not have a soul breathing down my neck,
to not live with anxiety?

I wondered how often have I felt peace to be me?
to not look at me in the mirror and see only the imperfections,
to create within me a home?

I wondered what love was meant to do?
to heal the wounds and fade the scars ,
to create a room in my heart that glowed liked the warmest sun?

I wondered what would life be like with less of hate & lack of prejudice?
to have more of trust ,
more of understanding
& more of empowering?

I wondered, I wondered ,
I wondered again,
How would I be, had there been no spotlight my entire upbringing?
would I be someone I can’t imagine?

Relearn to unlearn.

It’s a process of learning,
never ending,
satisfying.
And if you feel stuck once in a while
pause to relearn
so as to unlearn
what was futile.
Close you eyes only for a moment,
take a deep breath
and restore your pretty head.
It’s okay to feel not in control
and struggling in a mess,
you aren’t alone,
life is a zest.
Take your steps
wisely or not,
learn what life will teach you
on those blank dots,
fill in more memories,
more of gratitude,
more of you.
Darling ,
slowly but surely,
day by glorious day,
you find more of you,
love that person
each day you are growing to be.
It doesn’t stop,
you dont have to otherwise see,
nurture your soul,
cleanse you whole.
You are infinite ,
an important scratch
in the universe.
You are the diamond in that uncut coal.

Know that God’s time is always the Right time.

You are in the right time,
All the wrongs are the right things happening/happened to you,
The just and the unjust, liked or detested , everything, everything is happening as rightly decreed.
Fate is unwinding as it was perfectly planned,
Not you neither me can change the lessons that life willingly teaches us,
Are you open to learning ?

Are you at home with falling? Because every time you fall , at your disposal is an opportunity to rise above all, take a new route that leads you home, may be the path that kept throwing you off the cliff wasn’t gonna take you home, and thus it’s time for you search and discover what will take you to the place you’ll feel the most alive. And sometimes its not one place, but many, those many will harbor a different milestone in your journey of seeking purpose and fulfillment.

Take care my friend.

My mind is the sword.

90% of the misunderstandings, petty fights and hurting is because your mind gives more weightage to umimportant details of your chaos.
Stop letting that anxiety and fears dictate the realness of the issue at hand, and that involves controlling your mind and not letting it control you.
You can be free of most of your “unworthy, not good enough, I can’t do it, this ain’t my cup of tea, may be they are better off without me, I should just shut all out..and all such other.. .” syndromes by first acknowledging how charming your lil mind is and how brilliant it indeed is to make you believe in pessimistic notions so easily, STOP! pause and see what’s happening here, your brain is readily accepting the judgements and opinions of people who want to see no growth in you (deliberately & sometimes they won’t be aware of what they are doing to you), your brain is feasting on your insecurities and breeding the parasites of sucking out all the remaining confidence and self reliant attributes you have, that also involves it will degrade your most essential vitamin of “self love.” Your brain cannot be blamed always though, it is as much a part of you as you are to your entire self, you need to wire your brain and teach it how to operate , how to defy the easily believable junk and feed it with healthy mind diet. Practice forceful optimism, take charge to be mindful, stay grounded, fall in love with a gratuitous living, let kindness devour you, let love rekindle your flames, let happiness and peace be a choice.
You can let the situations aggravate your problem at hand by believing in the unrooted parasites or you can be calm in the fire and plan a way out.

It is easy to keep your mind sane in times of stability but it is the the storms where the real challenge occurs .
Remember, your mind can wage a war or it can smartly end one without violence of any kind.

I can let go of everything I want , if I want to really preserve myself.

Take care.
