"Therefore, I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear..." (Matthew 6.25a).

Todays Word from Pr. P.C.Sampaio
Today we see some magazines at stands proposing-suggesting a more simple life! Well - that is good" For a long time, magazines, newspapers, etc., have been preaching that he who can buy more, he who can consume more, should be all happier... for evermore! It seems that people (ok: just some!) have awaken up to reality! To have more is not - by no means - a warranty for happiness. Not at all!

Look at picture above! Can you see some extra-ordinary things! No!? Are you sure!? Ok: indeed, that simple way of living is a first-step to happiness! In other words: family is the first environment from where happiness should burst out - come out. I do not know your family background... Yet, I can say that your family is responsible (50%) for who you are!

How is that!? Simple: if you have a nice-and-friendly family, chances are that you might grow up bearing a solid base-foundation. You might be a mature person, ready to face adversity and conquer it all... On the other hand, if you have too many problems in your own living-room, chances are that you might grow up as imature - a person full of anxiety, hatred, etc. But, do not be so sad! There is a way out of the caos. Yes - there is, indeed...

Religion, the true religion manifested in the person of Jesus Christ. He said: I am the truth, and the way and the life. Have you been lost lately? Have you been wandering around with no place to go? Have you been in doubt about what to do in your life? Millions have been facing the same thing. No big news! But you should not worry too much! Not at all! Deliver your life to Him (Jesus Christ) and He will take care of you... Hey, hey - a warning: do not ever think that you should not do your part in the deal, buddy! You should search, you should seek, you should see the chances that God has been daily giving you... and, most of the times, you keep your eyes blind - blind - blind! Come on: wake up to reality! Open up your eyes!

Prayer of today:
Father, I thank you for all the chances that you have been giving to me. Open up my eyes to see - to see! I have been longing for a meaningful life and I do know that I can only find a full and rich life in You!. In Jesus name. Amem.

May God bless you today and ever!
