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.

“I”

You define your existence & identity (I am), .
you define your capabilities (I can),
You define your willingness to adhere to your vows /promises (I will),
You define you, your life, your destiny.. .
(Don’t let this hit your head , because the greatest “I AM ” is “GOD” -its clearly stated in the Bible. So, No mistaking yourself for God. So all that you affirm is a blessing from God.) .
.
Be very careful of what your “I” follows,
because even mid sentence,
it has the most importance,
even other pronouns like “me” and “you” are not given that privilege of being capital.
No one really knows why !

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.

Self love isn’t selfish.

Hi there sweet sunshine,
If you find yourself feeling guilty for indulging in self love and self time, please don’t. It’s not selfish.

Also note self love isn’t self obsession.

It isn’t selfish to love the self you are, cherish what you are, feel at home with who you are.

It isn’t selfish to respect your essence even if others fail to do so.

If you have love within you will have love to give around. The world needs compassion and kindness.
Almost everyone is fighting a mental battle, some wont even be aware.

The times now have exceeded the levels of pressures of expectations and horizons of dreams and wants and goals.

Sometimes you need to simply pause and refuel yourself, be kind to yourself.

Life is such a waste if you hate yourself until your last.
Why don’t you begin with loving the smaller bits you appreciate about yourself and slowly learn to love yourself in totality?

Selfish is not s/he who loves and loves evermore, thy-self , thy-life and thy world.

Stay calm. Stay blest.
Gudnight folks .

You are beautiful.

Listen you who are misguided too,
YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.

Regardless of your face or body.

Your personality,
your character,
your heart, your emotions,
your sensitivity to others,
your values & principles,
your goals , your dreams,
your charisma, your nature,
your outlook , your optimism,
your inner being, your gratitude,
your smile, kindness, courage …….
And all of you is what makes you beautiful.

Please don’t let people tell you otherwise.
And please please stay away from people who make you believe that you are not.

I was friends with a person who made it so clear to me that I kinda admitted that beautiful was never going to be my cup of tea. I was a kid who hoped that someone would someday genuinely say it to me. It’s something what people long for. To be told that they are part of the beautiful world.

That’s a thing of the past now. And I really don’t blame anyone. It’s how I was and how I had to grow up to learn to look at beautiful in a different light, different perspectives.
And that’s when I realized the world had different varied visions and perspectives to look at the same things.

It is so difficult for some people to just say something good to someone, to appreciate them, to compliment them, and I mean all this for it’s genuiness, not fake flattery.

We live such shallow lives that are banked on ” I will compliment if she/he compliments. I will talk if she/he approaches.” Everyone is so shelled up and closed and unappreciative towards each other.
Why I wonder?

Go ahead and tell atleast one person how beautiful they are. Observe their reaction. They will have a smile radiating happiness and disbelief. Disbelief because no one says such good things to one another anymore.
Why look for people. Tell your parents and siblings what beautiful people they are.
When you become the reason to make someone happy, you will always be much more happier with yourself.
Beautiful is not the exterior that will go back to dust, beautiful will be that quotient of you that will leave behind a fragrance of fond remembrance even after your last.

Stay beautiful and blest, you brave soul.

Spread on some positivity around.

Keep smiling.

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.
