Ioan 3:16

Acest verset este cel mai cunoscut din toata biblia.

Dar oare chiar stam noi si meditam la insemnatatea acestui verset?

Practic, Ioan 3:16 ne transmite dragostea pe care ne a oferit-o si ofera Isus, prin faptul ca a murit fizic la cruce pentru noi.

Sa aveti o zi de duminica placuta!

Self-Confidence

Do you have self-confidence?

Self -Confidence is an attitude about your abilities, knowledge, skills. You know your strengths and weakness very well, but most importantly you have a positive image of yourself.

You set realistic expectations, goals, can handle criticism and your communication skills are assertive.

If you look now in the mirror, what are you seeing? A brave lion or a scared little mouse?

To gain self-confidence we have to have good self-esteem about ourselves, DO NOT CRITICISE yourself for a fail exam, event, or whatever. Every day, as a human being we are improving as we are not perfect and is good to learn and reflect on our mistakes. BTW do not get stuck on comparing yourself with other people

Boost your self – confidence by:

Every day learn a simple thing, read one chapter from a book

Have a good routine of self care

Prioritize your own needs and emotions

Surround yourself with good friends

And count your blessings when you feel sad, inferior to other people.

Unimaginable

Some families still live in unimaginable ways. Even though we are in the year 2021
The family I am talking today is formed of a widowed Mom and 4 little kids. They live in a high rate of poverty, don’t have their own house (living with a mom’s sister) and their income is low as Mom is not working because she has to take care of the children.

Sometimes the good fairy sends some money or food. But they need a little house to call it theirs otherwise they have no stability and the fear that tomorrow will end up on the streets.
The authorities can’t help or do want to. They practically do not care. In Romania, in the rural area, the poverty rate is 34%.


Now, let’s think of their near future, what are they going to be, can they answer the question ”what do you want to be when you grow up”?
They can’t answer for sure!


They might think from where and when the next meal will come or if tomorrow their aunt will kick them out, which is a huge probability.
I am trying to help and give them a future and HOPE. If you wanna be part of it, please donate whatever you can or share with other people.

Not perfect, just forgiven

Photo by Jess Bailey Designs on Pexels.com

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. Romans 3:23-25

Our only hope is in the perfect merit of Christ. He became our perfection and he is the only way into Heaven. The problem is while we are saved by faith alone in Christ, that faith will result in obedience and good works.

Now, who is perfect, or better asked, who thinks is perfect?

We are not, but Jesus is. Our God’s grace is bigger than my sins!

CHILD POVERTY

Every country has families living in poverty. With this global pandemic, I know a lot of parents have lost their jobs, and it’s really hard to find a new job.

When a child is born, they do not choose their families dependending on their social status, how many money they have in their bank account. God will take care of that child.

I know children who has to work instead of going to school, when actually only the education can save you from poverty.

Some children drop off the school to work, or they get married (early marriage). I know hundreds of girls between the age of 12 and 18 and they already have children, and a partner, they became mature before their time. In a village, is a girl and she is 13, she gave birth to her son last year, the kid has a father and they live together in a tiny room, the community, parents, family they all are aware of this situation, but they normalize it and say nothing about it. Now, how many chances has that child to go to school, and have a job? I think the child most likely will copy the parents behavior, and will take them like a role model.

When the kid will start school in that village, the teacher will give him no changes of higher education, probably will avoid going to his desk and look into his work, ask if we understood the lesson, and so on. The parents, do not have themselves education, so what happens to the child? He will fall into the poverty cycle. Believe me, I am talking the true, true cases, I have seen them with my eyes.

Poverty is all around the globe, some children have no food with days, no access to education, or a bright future.

These children needs people who cares about them, not people who cares about their pockets. Try to help a poor family, and do not judge them.

Disadvantaged children

It can affect children from birth and left unchecked and unchallenged, can impact negatively on every aspect of a child’s life.

Usually, poor children are located in hard to reach villages, isolated, but not only. In these villages, communities people follow traditions, they copy each others even if it’s bad or good. Sometimes no one is going to these villages to make a difference, and the children grow up and have no future.

I used to live like a disadvantaged kid some years of my life, what was the reason? well, an alcoholic dad and unemployment of both of my parents. I do not condemn them, but I try to understand their actions.

There are a number of reasons why a family may be disadvantaged, and therefore, vulnerable.

  1. Unemployment
  2. Single parent
  3. Low income
  4. Substance abuse…

What are the effects on a child living in poverty?

A child may suffer from:

A poor diet or neglect

Low educational achievement: no school trips, no books, uniform packed lunch, healthy snack

Lack of positive interactions with parents

They might be unable to understand their own emotions and those of others

Poor/dirty clothes, shoes.

The child may have low self esteem

Tensions/fights between parents at home.

The child may experience some types of abuse from parents or family.

Being kind doesn’t mean we have to be stupid, weak, naive!

I always say BE KIND and I truly believe in the meaning of these words!

But, I have noticed that some people sees the kindness like a weak value, something that can be used against you.  

I think some persons even think I’m easy to manipulate or a real push-over. I remember a lot of situations when I chose to be kind to a person and let myself down so that person can feel he/she won.

I am sure that God gave me this value and wants me to use it and to be kind, But also I AM SURE He doesn’t wants people to think or treat me as I am a weak person, here is not my problem but their problem. I choose to still show kindness and help people, I believe kindness can transform a heart made of stones into a gold heart full of kindness and compassion!

Learned my lesson, some people will always try to put you down and think they are better than you, and makes you feel weak, especially when they discover your kindness ”weapon”. In these situation I remember these kind of people seek attention, they might be hurt inside, or have no wisdom!

Like bible says in Matthew 5:44, just read, it’s an amazing verse

In these time we all live, feels like it’s the end of the world soon. So if we are all unkind, severe what is going to happen? Next time we meet a kind, compassionate person, try to be nice and think that we all live on this earth we all never know what happens in the next minute, we have to measure our words that comes from our mouth. We all live once, let’s be kind and lovely persons!

What is kindness?

Kindness is a behaviour marked by ethical characteristics, a pleasant disposition and consideration for others. It s a virtue, a value which is considered to be one of the knightly virtues.

Being kind often requires courage and strength!

BE KIND!!!

How does living in poverty affect a child?

What is poverty, how is like to live all your childhood in the poverty, what opportunities has a person once reached the adulthood, what can we do to help poor children?

Poverty is a state condition in which a person or community lack the financial resources and essentials for a minimum standard of living. Poverty means that the income level from employment is so low that basic human needs can’t be met. Poverty-stricken people and families might go without proper housing, clean water, electricity, food, medical attention, and so on.

Living in poverty like a child is really sad, they might have a sense of hopeless about their future than their more affluent peers. Low income, poor quality housing, debt put children’s mental health at risk.

Imagine the child wakes up in the morning, in a tiny house with no running water, heating, bathroom, electricity, kitchen, no food in the fridge. Just a small room, 1 bed, 1 stove, and nothing else, but that child is preparing to go to school with no breakfast, uniform or not knowing when the next meal comes from. Isn’t this sad? I know people living like this, I used to live similar conditions, but God had his plans for me and my family.

Living in poverty can effect a child in all areas like education, health, personal development. If the child doesn’t have the luck of having good parents, like the ones who understand the importance of education, that child most probably will drop out the school,so the child needs someone who is ready to help him, encourage and send him to school. I have seen in many poor communities this kids of problem, kids dropping out the school and getting married (early marriage), a child which is 13 can give up to school and form a family, so the poverty circle never ends. This is one of the reasons I want to raise a concern about it. The power of example in this communities is strong, children thinks that is normal and they should do the same like others.

Children having children is blossoming,once this, many more problems comes like child abuse, domestic violence, poverty.

Sometimes in these communities comes people ready to help, improve their conditions and give opportunities, some families are ready and open for it, some are not interested. But if you can save 1 child from 100, for me is like gold, means a lot.

I am trying my best to be able, in the future to help poor children, they need a hand of help, they need someone who cares about them. Helping a child to go to school, or to feed, improve living conditions is like saving a life.

BE KIND!

How does childhood trauma affect adulthood

About this subject I can talk, write a lot. I can relate to it. My parents used to neglect us sometimes, neglecting is a trauma. But shall we let the trauma affect our lives? I did not, I understood my parents actions.

When you are a child, the parents are the ones that should raise your in a healthy, caring, loving way. But what can a child do if the parent, carers, exposes him/her to some forms of abuse, trauma? Well, here comes the adults which are in contact with the child, they should be the heroes in cases of abuse (social workers, health visitor, teachers, etc).

Childhood trauma affects self image – According to psychology today, one of the most devastating impacts of childhood trauma is the effect it has on self-image. Adults who experienced significant trauma as children are more likely to develop a pattern of victimised thinking. Adopting this ideology is incredibly dangerous, as the way people perceive themselves impacts their words, choices, careers, opportunities and relationships. Individuals who genuinely think the world is out to get them will inevitably attract situations and people who reinforce these beliefs, regardless of how incorrect they may be.

I am thinking about the children who lived in a orphanage, their self esteem is so low. I used to work with kids in orphanages and they had some sad stories about the way they were treat there. Some of them experienced forms of abuse. I can just imagine while in adulthood they might have the same low self esteem or their lives to be totally changed in good. God can heal us of all our past, bad experiences and help us forgive and understand peoples actions towards us.

Their are 4 types of abuse ( physical, sexual, emotional, neglect). Some kids experience this types of abuse, and usually happens in family, but family should be LOVE, isn’t it?

If you experienced trauma, abuse in your childhood and now you have anxiety, depression, feel like worthless, just give all to God and HE is ready to heal and love you unconditionally.

If you are a parent, love your kids and treat them with care, compassion, you have to power to model the child today for tomorrow’s adulthood.

BE KIND!

HEART OF GOLD

PSALM 51:10 – Create in me a pure heart o God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

What is gold?

Gold – a precious metallic element, highly malleable and ductile, and not subject to oxidation or corrosion.

We using the expression ” he/she has a heart of gold” which means that we want to point out what a good person someone is. It is a strong compliment with a very positive connotation. It comes from the idea of gold being a precious metal that is highly valued. The use of this idiom dates back at least to the 1400.

In the bible the word heart is mentioned 752 times. In genesis 6:6 says ” And the Lord regretted that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved him to his heart”. This shown that God feels emotions, our hearts are abundance of emotions.

Heart of gold (kindness, compassion)

BE KIND!

EMPATHY/COMPASSION

What is empathy?

I have to admit that first time I heard and learn this word was in my first year of University, while I studied social work.

I think is something amazing and kind to have empathy.

The standard definition for empathy is – ”Empathy is the ability to understand and appreciate another person’s feelings and experience”.

Empathy seems to have deep roots in our brains and bodies, and in our evolutionary history. Elementary forms of empathy have been observed in our primate relatives, in dogs, and even in rats.

So now, in my perspective empathy refers more generally to the ability of feeling the emotions of another person, but nor the desire to help.

COMPASSION!

What is compassion? Compassion motivates people to go out of their way to help the physical, mental, or emotional pains of another and themselves. This means to suffer together!

Compassion is being aware of others needs or interests and acting to help them. Being genuinely concerned for the welfare of others.

Like the bible verse says ”Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience, Colossians 3:12”.

Compassionate people usually display the following behaviours:

  1. They are receptive to the demands of other and even anticipate them
  2. They have good thoughts about others
  3. They treat people well and do not expect a reward
  4. Kind and helpful with the people around them

I love the word of compassion, wasn’t God compassionate with us? He was and He is!

He saw the suffering and He gave his only son for us. This is true love!

There really is no better declaration of compassion than the one Jesus made on the cross.

In Matthew 9:36 – When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like a sheep without a shepherd.

Jesus sees the needs and acts.

There are so many needs in world, we all experienced to be asked for money by kids, adults in the streets, well I do not encourage to give money, giving money means you encourage the person to beg and to continue doing it. But what if instead of giving money teach them how to earn money?

”Give someone a fish and you feed him for a day, teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”.

What I want to do is to help children continue going to school, build houses for poor families, invlving them in community work, helping each others is compassion!
