“Only when we look back from where we were once at, will we see faith at its great perspective, as faith moves quicker than the human brain or body— It’s faster than anything clocked or recorded.

One night as the weight was too heavy for him to bear, there came along what seemed like a stronger man. He said, ‘give your weight to me— I am willing.’ From that day forward the weak man and the stronger man were inseparable. The heavy load was gone, he was able to rest and finally have peace...

Lessons to be learned

“A woman was given a priceless gem long ago. She never really gave it much attention. All she wanted to know is what could she get from this priceless gem. Her whole life came and gone passing her by and eventually she lost the priceless gem. When she stood before God frustrated and annoyed, she asked Him “why did this priceless gem you gave me never do anything for me?” God responded, “I gave you that priceless gift, not to want from it, but to be thankful you already had everything you needed and to make sure you would value it by protecting it— You did neither.” What was the moral lesson of this sad woman’s life story? Be thankful for what God gives you, because you may very well be in the possession of something priceless.” — F. Lugo 11/2/12
