Fiji Sun - - Nation -

1. FROM RICK GODWIN “LIVE FULL DIE EMPTY

God isn’t in the busi­ness of mak­ing car­bon copies. He makes us each unique so that all hu­mankind is a fas­ci­nat­ing mix of di­ver­sity. Agree­ment re­quires di­ver­sity. Unity de­mands di­ver­sity. If all of us were the same, then life would be bor­ing. Thank God, you’re dif­fer­ent from ev­ery­one else!

2. FROM JAMES ALLEN “AS A MAN THINKKETH

Ev­ery man is where he is by the law of his be­ing; the thoughts which he has built into his char­ac­ter have brought him there, and in the ar­range­ment of his life there is no el­e­ment of chance, but all is the re­sult of a law which can­not err. This is just as true of those who feel “out of har­mony “with their sur­round­ings as of those who are con­tended with them.

1. FROM KING DAVID THE SOL­DIER AND WAR­RIOR KING:

Cast thy bur­den upon the Lord, and He shall sus­tain thee: He shall never suf­fer the right­eous to be moved

Psalm 55:22 The hu­man mind can stand only so much weight. One men­tal bur­den piled upon an­other, un­less relief is ob­tained, will in due course reach your break­ing point and cause se­ri­ous dif­fi­culty. For­tu­nately you do not need to carry your bur­dens with­out as­sis­tance.God will help you carry them. Let Him help you!

2. FROM PAUL THE APOS­TLE, THE COURA­GEOUS MAN OF THE HIGH GOD.

“If any man be in Christ, he is a new crea­ture: old things are passed away; be­hold all things are be­come new. 11 Corinthi­ans 5:1 Never be dis­cour­aged about your­self. God loves you and will never give you up

Pro­vided by Am­bas­sador (Ret’d) Sir James Michael Ah Koy KBE, PAPALII, OBE, OF.
