It Is So Strange That Dr.Steve Ramsey, PhD -Public Health MSc-(hon) in Med Ultrasound. It is very strange that houses get bigger and bigger, and families go smaller and smaller, people living alone, and they can hear their own echoes. It is so stupid that medical and health technology are getting so advance while our health…… Continue reading It Is So Strange That. Quates by Steve Ramsey, PhD.
Fear is one of the enemy’s most popular weapons that he uses against us. Worry, anxiety, fear…can overwhelm us with a thick shadow of darkness, controlling our every move and decision
[The holy Quran 10-62 mentioned that ‘Absolutely, GOD’s allies have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve. You can find similar thing in the Bible
[Quran 10:63] They are those who believe and lead a righteous life.
[Quran 10:64] For them, joy and happiness in this world, as well as in the Hereafter, This is GOD’s unchangeable law. Such is the greatest triumph.
The biggest problem in the world today is that people do not know who they are. Consequently, they have their priorities mixed up. You like someone so very much and you can fight the world for her but she or he does not like you because they don’t feel romantic enough. They don’t understand that Romance alone doesn’t guarantee you successful marriage and love, as it is LUST.
When the lust gone the men will drift away and leave you in a nice way, divorce after divorce and it is all the same multiple partners and boyfriends failed marriage and relationships all in the name of romance and then they will give an excuse to each situation like we drifted away, I felt in a nutshell, he is not hot and romantic enough, I underestimate his family or children, he is drinking now and gamboling, he don’t have time for me and so on.
Or they assume because you are from this or that culture you are not good fit and they stereo type you .It all about fear and anxiety after lust. True love is very hard to find and sometimes it is right in front of your eyes, so close to you but he or she decided to make you just a friend!
If you ask the average person who they are, they look in the mirror. But this body is a vanishing garment. Yet, most people spend their entire life on the body–going to school, working hard, earning a lot of money. Meanwhile the real person, the soul, goes hungry. Hungry for love, true love and spiritual growth not spiritually bankrupt. If we fail to heed our Creator and starve our souls, we eventually lose it. And this is the real loss, an eternal loss (Quran 7:9, 39:15).
That’s why it is better not to fallow your lust and temptations as most the human follow their sexual organs and not their heart and brain.
How do we feed our souls and become truly happy in this world and the Hereafter? The answer is by believing and leading a righteous life (Quran 6:158, 10:62-64). God has given us great gifts to grow our souls–the religious duties, including the 5 daily Contact Prayers (Salat).Yet you can learn to love and have great admiration to those who you don’t feel romantic with.
2 Timothy 1:7 For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.
You can have a person pray for you, if you have fear and the spirit of fear will go. However, when this spirit comes back to ‘check you out’, and you were never taught how to fight the fight of faith and resist the spirit of fear, oftentimes the fear will come back. This happens because you will think, “the prayer did not work, I must be doing something wrong. God did not answer my prayer, etc.
May God help us be aware of who we are, so that we spend our time growing our true self–the soul?
So much crazy going on around us today – wars, conflicts, persecution, violence, crime, natural disasters, terrorism, economic uncertainty, unemployment, divisions, China virus, disease, and death. We fear for our children’s future, we fear for our families, we fear for our financial future, we fear for our safety. The list goes on…long. There actually is a lot we could potentially worry about.
Yet reality tells us that so much of what we spend our time worrying about never even happens. Living under the weight of the “what if’s” is a hard place to dwell.
If you focus and follow those who truly love you and can support you things will be changed ,Change happened. Anxious thoughts began to diminish. Worry let go of its constant grip. And though fear is sometimes still there, it no longer wields control, holding you back, paralyzing you in its grasp, and romance will happen too. But we are society of monkeys , copy cats, people tell you and you believe , you live your life looking for romance and forget true love because your friends said this or that and they tell you that it’s all about chemistry and sparks ( lust).
It’s not always easy, and it often comes down to a choice:
Choosing not to allow fear and anxiety to control your life.
Choosing to guard your heart, and to follow temptations, addictions and lust.
Choosing to focus your mind on what is true in the midst of uncertain times.
We might still feel afraid, but we can believe that God is with us. We may not be in control, but we can trust the One who is. We may not know the future, but we can know the God who does.
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
“When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.” Psalm 56; 3
Do not be anxious about anything but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving; present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in God name” Philippians 4; 6-7.
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” ~2 Timothy 1;7
“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.”1 John 4; 18
“An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up.” Proverbs 12; 25
“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will Fear no evil, for you God are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”Psalm 23; 4
“Do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?” Luke 12; 22-26.
From this verse Buddhists born and follow the kind life ,but that doesn’t mean you stop planning, saving and prepare for the future .
