Feeling Sorry For Yourself?

                                                                        Michael Oher

I guess we all feel sorry for ourselves at times...
However, it doesn't get you anywhere if you let it control your life..

Life goes on and we can accept our lot, of continually blame it for not blossoming.

Last night I watched a POWERFUL DVD....  'The Blind Side'

It was the real life story of a big hearted young man named Michael Oher who was a homeless child from a very young age.

In his own words, Michael says he doesn't hold grudges against anyone for the misfortune he encountered as a child.
"I don't dwell on anything,
I'm not going to feel sorry for myself because I didn't have a place to stay a lot of time.
It is what it is.
We've got to go through some things in life.
Take it and run with it."

I have ordered this DVD for my children for Christmas..
It has a valuable lesson..
It's not where you come from, but where you are going in the future.
Let Christ Shine in Your Life.

Jeremiah  1:5                                                                                                                        

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,                                                        

Before you were born..... I set you apart'"

  9. Do not know if this movie is subtitled in Portuguese, I'll see if I can find. I felt a huge desjo to watch it.
    I remember the words of the Apostle Paul: "Leaving things which are behind and reaching forward to what lies before me, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 3:13,14) For those who know Jesus our target, our goal is himself, who also is our beginning. To those who still do not know, may even have a starting point, which is his desire to leave behind the things that were. However, recisam the arrival point where everything is full even in a desert place.
    What a good message to our hearts!
    Be blessed in Christ, where everything is full!
    Grace and peace!
