Faith, Hope and Love

That’s right my friends, we are living the first days of 2018, and the special message that I want to leave here for you, is a verse that God spoke to my heart, the moment I started thinking about something to publish here.

“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
1 Corinthians 13:13

Thinking of how to go forward, how to tread my walk this year, those words came to my mind and inspired my heart.

You can not live without FAITH

Faith is what binds us directly to God, it is the certainty of what we do not yet see, it is the reability that moves us. The confidence that gives us the conditions to fight. Without faith, it’s impossible to please God. The righteous shall live by faith. Whatever achievement we aspire to, whether on the spiritual, material, soul, or body level, we can only reach and establish what we desire through faith.

Faith is power. Faith is relationship. Faith is communication through prayer. How can we speak to God without having the full conviction that He’s listening to us?

If we have FAITH, we need to WAIT for something, and how can we expect good things without HOPE?

To have HOPE is to know that something is possible, it is the expectation that drives us. It’s that smile on your face when you apply for something. Hope is to expect something good, it is to take the eyes of what is temporary and glimpse the future. I believe that this hope that I’m talking about here, is to share your plans with God. Glimpse Heaven, and know how important this is.

When faith and hope go together, the human being becomes capable of realizing his best and biggest dreams. The human being materializes the plans that God has for his life. These two are great pillars of life. A person without these two pillars is incomplete. He lives in “a world without color”, without perspective.

To have hope these days is to go against the world. We turn on the TV, we read newspaper, log in on our social media for a few minutes, and we see a “flood of tragedies” and not-so-promising futures… when we live in hope, we nullify this negativity, and we want to see the vision of what God wants for us!

But there is still more important to talk about: LOVE!

Yes, LOVE is the greatest of these!

What would we be without Love? I believe that every human being is born with the first and most important “of Loves”, that of God for us! Whoever accompanies the blog, knows that I am Christian, and when I speak of this Love, I am not talking about religion! Religion, in my opinion, only gets in the way. Religion separates, detain people by mere rules, creates dissentions, and ultimately kills (kills both spiritually and physically).

When I speak of Love, it is impossible not to relate the decision I made, this pure feeling, to follow the God that I believe! I never forget a verse in the Bible that says that we’re recognized as children of God, only when we love, when we carry this love within us! And in the Bible, book of 1 Corinthians 13, Paul says:

If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
1 Corinthians 13: 2,3

If your intentions aren’t covered in love, it’s no use doing what you do. There is no point in possessing everything in the material matter, if you do not have love. Understand that without true love, no kind of relationship lasts. If you do not love God above all things, if you do not love yourself, if you do not love your neighbor (or fail in some of these steps), you’ll be nothing, nothing will matter.

Love is the beginning of every relationship. Love is the basis. Faithfulness, for example, grows with Love. To be the image and likeness of God, begins when we love Him, when we love those who are on our side, no matter who they are. We stand for Love.

Do not exchange Love for coldness. Do not annihilate LOVE within you because of traumas, sorrows, sadness, disappointments… who remains in LOVE, is justified.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
1 Corinthians 13: 4-8

I want to continue in 2018, with a lot of FAITH. I want to have HOPE, good expectations, because only then, I can run after something that serves as an experience for me! And of course, have lots of LOVE inside of me!

Notice how these pillars are connected! I hope I have been able to explain a little of what I received. I wish that your 2018 will be the year in which you put into practice FAITH, HOPE and LOVE! That you count on God, may you trust Him with all your heart. You can count on me too, leave messages, comments… it will always be a pleasure to answer them. I ask with great affection, that you share this post, maybe it reaches someone who needs this message!

XO and I wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR, I love you all!

May we continue together on this journey!

Love Wins

blog-senhorita-deise-o-amor-vence

When things are hard, remember, Love wins.

When you’re feeling heavy, do not forget, Love wins.

When recognition doesn’t come, please know that, Love wins.

When everything seems lost, take a deep breath, Love wins.

When tears come to your eyes, Love wins.

Yes, Love wins, so any sacrifice is valid, it is valid to love, it’s valid to wish the good to others, even when it is not reciprocal.

Fear, lack of patience, laziness, vices, anger, hatred, revenge, slander, lack of strength, when you feel like giving up, inferiority complex, negativity, loneliness, any kind of pain. Love conquers anything.

Love conquers all, Love will always win!

We can BE Love. We can SPREAD Love.

I wrote this, months ago, when I was extremely sad. I shared this weight on my shoulders with someone I love, and she gave me another perspective, through these words: “love wins”.

After that, I felt so inspired, so strong again. That fear was gone. God used this person to talk to me. And now, I felt deep in my heart that I needed to share this here, with you, reading this, who’s going through hard times in your life.

You are not alone. You are loved. Talk to someone you know, you don’t have to carry this weight alone! (Please, read You Will Find Rest too) You’ve got a friend in me, if you wanna talk, I’m here for you! I don’t know what you’re going through, I don’t know how you’re feeling, but let me tell you something, everything will be okay. You’ll overcome this, God is with you. Have an amazing September, and may God bless you in every aspect of your life 🙂

Quando estiver difícil, lembre-se, o Amor vence.

Quando estiver pesado, não se esqueça, o Amor vence.

Quando o reconhecimento não vem, saiba, o Amor vence.

Quando tudo parecer perdido, respire fundo, o Amor vence.

Quando as lágrimas vierem aos olhos, o Amor vence.

Sim, o Amor vence, por isso é válido qualquer sacrifício, é válido amar, desejar o bem para a outra pessoa, mesmo quando não é recíproco.

O medo, a falta de paciência, a preguiça, os vícios, a raiva, o ódio, a vingança, a maledicência, a falta de força, a vontade de desistir, complexo de inferioridade, negatividade, solidão, qualquer tipo de dor. O Amor vence qualquer coisa.

O Amor venceo Amor sempre vencerá!

Nós podemos SER o Amor. Nós podemos ESPALHAR o Amor.

Escrevi esse pequeno texto, meses atrás. Compartilhei um sentimento que estava carregando dentro de mim, com alguém que eu amo, e essa pessoa me deu outra perspectiva, falando essa frase para mim: “o amor vence”.

Depois disso, senti-me tão inspirada! Deus falou comigo através dela. E agora, senti que precisava compartilhar esse texto aqui, com você, que está passando por momentos difíceis em sua vida.

Em mim, você tem uma amiga. Conte comigo, se precisar conversar, é só entrar em contato, estarei bem aqui! Não sei o que está acontecendo com você, não sei o que você pode estar passando, mas não se preocupe, vai dar tudo certo, porque o amor vencerá e Deus é contigo.

Que esse mês seja abençoado em todos os sentidos!
