  9. 9. 8.God gives the very best to those who leave the choices up to Him. 9. If people can’t accept us at our worst, then they don’t deserve us at our best. 10. No one can go back and make a new beginning but anyone can start from now and make a happy ending. 11. There is no better exercise than bending down and lifting people up. 12. When challenges are so big that we feel our strength is not enough to carry them, let us keep on going. The extra mile is where the grace of God begins.
  10. 10. 13. With God, we can take the choice & be content, take the tensions & be calm, take the hurts & be brave, take the obstacles & have faith. 14. Life is not about how bravely we struggle & fight. Often, it can be about how willingly we surrender. 15. For every dream in our heart, God gives us inspiration; for every hope we seek, God gives us unexpected miracles; for every faith we believe, God blesses us more. 16. One day, God told me to push a rock with all my might. Many years passed & nothing happened. Getting discouraged I asked why I was failing & He said He never told me to move it, He would move it Himself.
  11. 11. 17. Part of growing is learning to take responsibilities. Life is isn’t just about fun. As we become wiser, we l loosen our grip on being perfect in every way. We learn that it’s more important to be human & happy than perfect but sad. 18. We are told that one lie is enough to break a trust; one word is enough to break a heart; one second is enough to lose a battle; one smile is enough to forgive; one mistake is enough to lose a job. But whatever our pain, whatever is our struggle, one God is more than enough.
