If we allow God's words shape our thoughts, they will shape our lives. God is not an option, He is a necessity in our lives.

When we feel like we are drowning in life, let us cling to the One who walks on top of the


 water. He leads us where He wants us to be, not where we want to be. He is the best listener. We don't need to shout nor cry out loud because He hears even the very silent prayer of a sincere heart.

Sometimes the answer to our prayers is not gaining but losing negativity and pessimism like anger, ego, greed, depression, insecurity and fear of death which ultimately gaining faith, confidence, peace and happiness.

When we pray for others, God listens to us and blesses them. So when we are safe and happy, remember that someone is praying for us.

I have learned that our prayers are always answered; that we don't have to beg nor make deals with the Creator when we pray; that the key is to pray with faith, knowing and believing that what we ask for, we will receive.

Let us meditate on things that are true, things that are noble, whatever are just, whatever are pure, whatever are lovely, whatever are of good rapport, and anything praiseworthy. I have also learned that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; that when we stick to what is good, what is true, what is honest and what is real, we always prevail at the end.

By Tim Pedrosa


Once a man was asked, what did he gain by regularly praying to God. The man replied that nothing but said what he lost: Anger, ego, greed, dperession, insecurity, and fear of death. Sometimes, the answer to our prayers is not gaining but losing; which ultimately is the gain.
