Hope – The Art of Being Strong in The Weakness

Life is a challenge. Period.

The only way to measure the dimension of your victory is for the size of the challenges of your battles. None big accomplishment is get on the easier way. None big dream is conquered without shedding some tears all around the way until you reach it out. And are not the smiles that will tell you the value of your conquer. These same tears you’ve dropped will tell you it was all worth. The smiles are to bright it up and to make your light shine over it.

And if you think that only your friends oppinion is what matters most, maybe you should try to hear the point of view of someone that thinks differently from you. You’ll find out that there’s not a better imparcial judgment than listening to someone that has a thought different from yours. Why? Because depending on the situation, your friend will tell you things just to comfort you. Your enemy will tell you things to hurt you and let you down. But if you’re wise, and know how to listen, you’ll find out that even someone thinking differently from you, may help a lot when you don’t know what to listen to.

Happiness isn’t to be smiling all the time with everything working out. The true happiness is you can get strenghts where you think you can not get them anymore. The happiness is the art of keeping the hope even when you think you’ve spoiled everything with your own hands. And the hope is the art of being strong when you think you can not anymore.

Hope is the art of being strong in the weakness, the art of reneweing your mind when you think everything has came to an end. It’s the art to recover the dream when you think there isn’t any dream anymore. Being strong is the art of holding on in what you do believe, even when you don’t have any reasons to keep believing it anymore. It’s to see beyond, even when tears are blinding you down. Even when the morning seems will never come, when the sky is so dark by the six am, that you begin to wonder if the day will really come…

Life is a challenge. But it’s up to us to face it or run away. If you close your eyes, and look deep inside your soul, you shall see that it doesn’t matter how bad the things may seem at the moment, sooner or later the day will drop its light, and you shall see that none of God’s plans can be frustred. Just hold on. Keep believing even when everything tells you the opposite, NEVER GIVE UP.

I’ll never give up on you. It doesn’t matter how much it will hurt sometimes, I’ll remain beside you. Despite of all my mistakes, or of all my truths, I’ll remain beside you. And from your sight I shall never get away.

Miracles Are Not To Be Understood

So, here am I, stuck on the traffic and, just as usual, over-thinking about a thousand things.

Do you know when you feel that something so wonderful is about to happen in your life, but you just don’t know what is it or HOW will it happen? Yeah… that’s the feeling.

Sometimes, GOD, in His endless mercy and love, gives us the gifts that He knows our hearts are yearning for, and, sometimes it requires too much faith and trusting in His faithfulness and word. Only then, the miracles can happen.

Yet, as humans, we’re always trying to understand what’s not mean to be understood. We still look for why’s and how’s when the only thing we have to do is just trust and receive what’s being gifted to us. And be thankful! That’s all we really need to do!

No, I am not talking about the troubles or the hard times, or the things that bring us any doubt; thought living by faith is almost like living in constant doubt, since we never know what comes next…

I am talking about the things we ask to God, and He, in His unassuming grace, decides to give us the desire of our hearts. And in moments like these we must remember that, when we surrender our lives in God’s hands, He is faithful and mighty to do much more than we ask or even think.

I maybe can have a light idea of what’s about to happen, maybe only because my heart can feel it so strongly, but I have no clue about how will it be like, and that, I must confess, is quite scary.

But miracles are not to be explained. They just happen.

Brave
Josh Groban

Wake up, wake up
The sun cannot wait for long

Reach out, reach out
Before it fades away.

You will find the warmth when you surrender
Smile into the fear and let it play…

You wanna run away? run away,
And you’ll say that it can’t be so.

You wanna look away? look away,
But you’ll stay, coz it’s oh so close.

When you stand up and hold out your hands.
In the face of what i don’t understand
A reason to be brave.

Hold on, hold on so strong
Time just carries on.

All that you thought was wrong
Is pure again.

You can’t hide forever from a fighter
Look into the storm and feel the rain…

You wanna run away? run away,
And you’ll say that it can’t be so.
You wanna look away? look away,
But you’ll stay, coz it’s oh so close.

When you stand up and hold out your hands
In the face of what i don’t understand
A reason to be brave

Go on, go on…

You wanna run away? run away,
And you’ll say that it can’t be so.
You wanna look away? look away,
But you’ll stay, coz it’s oh so close.

When you stand up and hold out your hands
In the face of what i don’t understand
A reason to be brave.
