Real Peace

God send forth peace that this world cannot offer. Peace emanate within in our hearts. It is a blessed peace of knowing God and His goodness to us.

It is not the absence of war and misunderstanding. Peace does not commence when we are successful, famous and powerful. Honor, fame and material success are not the foundation of real peace but the beginning of pride

Love Quotes

  Love is the reason for our existence. God created us because He first loved us.   God’s love is beyond description and without any condition.   Love knows no limit, it is beyond words and could be felt deep within us.   If we love someone it must be pure and without any blemish of pride and selfishness.   Love takes time to grow and when it develops it produces good fruits of patience, sacrifice and commitment.   Loving someone whom you think unworthy is just like looking your face on still water.   If we love others it only means we are ready to sacrifice for them like what Jesus has done to humanity.   Love is not just a mere feeling and is not purely based on emotions, but it is a decision of the will.
