Who is your Jonathan?


Good Day, Beautiful People!

You maybe wondering what I mean by who is your Jonathan? In the bible, Jonathan is the best friend of David, or BFF (Best Friends Forever) as the Y and Z generations favourite abbreviation. We all need more Jonathans in our lives. Culturally, Jonathan is a role model of loyalty to truth and friendship.

This quality, loyalty, is an extraordinary find, rarer than pink diamonds. It is so precious that money cannot buy that. If you are so blessed with one to three of these people in your life, they will see you through this life journey humps and bumps, support and help you to go further and reach your peak of your destiny in life. Your Jonathan will be so happy for you and not jealous of you or envy of your success.

 


Full Definition of LOYAL-
1: unswerving in allegiance: as
a : faithful in allegiance to one’s lawful sovereign or government
b : faithful to a private person to whom fidelity is due
c : faithful to a cause, ideal, custom, institution, or product

2: showing loyalty


3: obsolete : lawful, legitimate


In any relationship, leadership, country, defence force, law enforcement department, organisation, business and personal life, if you can grow, cultivate and build loyalty it will highly rewarded in a long run. All of us must aspire to achieve. In general, true loyalty has to be earned. True loyalty is indestructible allegiance to a country, person, organisation, business, service, brand or product based on an astounding level of satisfaction. Loyalty for country starts with a state of mutual trust and support between allied countries.

In any organisation, true loyalty basically is to identify with client expectations and needs, measure your results, and make changes that positively impact the clients experience and meet the real needs of clients. Creating truly loyal clients by satisfying client is a stable, continuous and even lifelong advantage.

In term of personal relationship and friendship, loyalty is the real virtue and asset that we all dream to have. The fact is how many of us are truly blessed with this gift. If you want good loyal friends, you first need to be friendly, create that bond and offer yourself as a true friend with quality and worth you are looking for in others. Most people in our life are just seasonal, acquaintances, some are ordinary friends and only a handful are truly loyal friends. When we meet people, we are drawn to certain people because of common direction, common interest, common values, common conviction, common history, common backgrounds and equality. We tend to choose friends that mirror us in some ways. Is good to have friends that are different from us to contribute something unique into the dynamic.

A loyal friend will not ask you to compromise your principles in the name of your friendship or anything else. Loyal friends are fair. They will respect you regardless of your race, religion, colour and social discrimination. Loyal friends will love you for what you are and what your personality is. You will get to know how they think about you through the way they react and response. Many people that are white have black, Hispanic and Asian friends, which they admire, care and support about honestly. True and loyal friends will forever stand by your side and they will minister to you, fundamentally provide you what you need in any situation. You would be able to take out a lot from his or her company and knowledge. They will not ask for a payback even if they contribute loads. If you have this kind of friend, you know he or she is a genuine treasure. A loyal friend is consistently willing to put your happiness and well being before your friendship. It’s said that “good advice grates on the ear,” but a loyal friend will not avoid from telling you something you do not want to hear, something that may even risk losing the friendship, if hearing it lies in your best interest. Loyal friends may not agree with you all the time and they will not have same opinions as yours but they still want you to know the truth. A loyal friend will correct you gracefully when you’re wrong. A real loyal friend will confront you with your gambling issue as swiftly as inform you about your spouse or partner is cheating you behind back that you have not discover yourself. A loyal friend is a good influence. He or she encourages and inspires you to live up to your best potential, not to entertain your worthless and paltry drives.

Hope you found your Jonathans or in the pursue to find your Jonathans. The real question you have to ask yourself is “Can I be a Jonathan to someone or organisation or country?”


Below are some powerful quotes:

A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity. -Proverbs 17:17

A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. -Proverbs 18:24

Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another. -Proverbs 27:17

Never tire of loyalty and kindness. Hold these virtues tightly. Write them deep within your heart. -Proverbs3:3

Saul and David finished their conversation. After that, Saul’s son Jonathan was deeply attracted to David and came to love him as much as he loved himself. 1 Samuel 18:1

The king asked him, “Is there anyone left of Saul’s family to whom I can show loyalty and kindness, as I promised God I would?” Ziba answered, “There is still one of Jonathan’s sons. He is crippled.” -2 Samuel 9:3

Loyalty cannot be blueprinted. It cannot be produced on an assembly line. In fact, it cannot be manufactured at all, for its origin is the human heart-the centre of self-respect and human dignity. It is a force which leaps into being only when conditions are exactly right for it-and it is a force very sensitive to betrayal. — Maurice R. Franks

The loyalties which centre upon number one are enormous. If he trips, he must be sustained. If he make mistakes, they must be covered. If he sleeps, he must not be wantonly disturbed. If he is no good, he must be pole-axed.
— Winston Churchill

Be a friend when people most need one. As movie mogul Lew Wasserman used to advise talent agents: “If an actor is working, make sure you talk to him at least twice a week. If he is not working, talk to him every day.” Helping people will not guarantee that they respond to you in kind. My experience is that you can count on about one in ten, but this one makes up for the others. — David Mahoney

An ounce of loyalty is worth a pound of cleverness. — Elbert Hubbard

Prince of Peace [Prince de la Paix,Príncipe de la Paz]


Good Day, Beautiful People!

I don’t really know how your day looks like. You maybe having a good day or best day in your life by far. On the other hand, you maybe having a bad day. With so much awful calamity going around the world can be quite overwhelming even to watch the news. At times, we feel so powerless. Often we ask ourselves, “What can we do?” Pray for peace. Donate some money to support an organisation to help the needs. Trust God in those situation.

You can be stuck in an ugly and unthinkable situation or shocking tragedy. It can be catastrophe news of bad health report, work dilemma, job loss, major conflicts, bad debts, financial bankruptcy, loss of business contract, relationship breakdown, divorce, betrayal, misunderstanding, family crisis, death of loved ones, depression, PTSD and other emotional and mental trauma. Pray for peace. “Then my enemies will turn back when I call for help. By this I will know that God is for me.” -Psalm56:9

I was being reminded last Sunday, Theodicy: the vindication of divine providence in view of the existence of evil. “Life is hard but God is good.” – Kevin Gerald.

Surely, this new song will bring you peace and hope in crisis.

Prince of Peace

My heart a storm, clouds raging deep within
The Prince of peace came bursting through the wind
The violent sky held its breath
And in Your light I found rest

Tearing through the night
Riding on the storm
Staring down the fight
My eyes found Yours
Shining like the sun
Striding through my fear
The Prince of peace
Met me there

You heard my prayer

Hope like the sun, light piercing through the dark
The Prince of peace came and broke into my heart
The violent cross, the empty grave
And in Your light I found grace

Tearing through the night
Riding on the storm
Staring down the fight
My eyes found Yours
Shining like the sun
Striding through my fear
The Prince of peace
Met me there

You’re always there
And You hear my prayer

Your love surrounds me
When my thoughts wage war
When night screams terror
There Your voice will roar
Come death or shadow
God I know Your light will meet me there

When fear comes knocking
There You’ll be my guard
When day breeds trouble
There You’ll hold my heart
Come storm or battle
God I know Your peace will meet me there

(Again and again)
Oh, be still my heart
I know that You are God
Oh fear no evil
For I know You are here

And my soul will know Your love surrounds me
When my thoughts wage war
When night screams terror
There Your voice will roar
Come death or shadow
God I know Your light will meet me there

And my soul will know
When fear comes knocking
There You’ll be my guard
When day breeds trouble
There You’ll hold my heart
Come storm or battle
God I know Your peace will meet me there

Oh, be still my heart
And my soul will ever know that You are God
And You heard my prayer

Happy Mother’s Day

  
Good day, Beautiful People!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the natural and spiritual mothers, grandmothers in the world. This is a tribute to you all for all the sacrifice. I am dedicating this to my Mom, Ma, Nai Nai and Grandma. 

  
Mom, thanks for your sacrifice when we are small…our lives revolve around her. For everything that we need we call mother. To protect us from all perceivable dangers we want her around us. To take us out we hold her arms. To kiss away our wounds we run to her. And for a warm hug and love we look for her. She is the focal point of our lives, the greatest human being in the world or should we say divinity on earth. Mom, you are the greatest blessing of God on me and our family.
Thinking and praying for families who feel blue on this special occasion, bereaved moms, orphans and women who are waiting too long for their future children. Be kind while you are celebrating. 

  

M – O – T – H – E – R

“M” is for the million things she gave me,
“O” means only that she’s growing old,
“T” is for the tears she shed to save me,
“H” is for her heart of purest gold;
“E” is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
“R” means right, and right she’ll always be,
Put them all together, they spell
“MOTHER,”
A word that means the world to me.
Howard Johnson (c. 1915)

Mother’s Love
Her love is like
an island in life’s ocean,
vast and wide
A peaceful, quiet shelter
From the wind, the rain, the tide.
‘Tis bound on the north by Hope,
By Patience on the West,
By tender Counsel on the South
And on the East by Rest.
Above it like a beacon light
Shine Faith, and Truth, and Prayer;
And thro’ the changing scenes of life
I find a haven there.
Author Unknown

Thank God for our Mothers
If life were without water, where would we be?
If life were without mothers,
There would be no you or me.
We all need to take hold, of how precious life really is,
and not take for granted the gift of love and the ability to give.
Thank you to God for creating us all
For giving us our mothers
So we can stand proud and tall.
Humans are no accident, no mistake or error
We sometimes live our lives in fear of this,
Even to the point of terror.
But when the truth is told, and recognised by all,
God does not create rubbish. He knew what he was doing when he created
me and you, but the best gift of all, is giving us loving, caring
Mothers who love us unconditionally through and through.
None of us are perfect, that includes ourselves and family.
Hold onto how precious we are and thank God for our mothers.
Amen
Julia Hunt

Love my grandmas. Miss you both. Thinking of the good memories and legacy you leave behind.
While we honor all our mothers
with words of love and praise.
While we tell about their goodness
and their kind and loving ways.
We should also think of Grandma,
she’s a mother too, you see….
For she mothered my dear mother
as my mother mothers me.
Author Unknown

This One Is For Grandmothers!
Grandmothers are mothers who are grand,
Restoring the sense that our most precious things
Are those that do not change much over time.
No love of childhood is more sublime,
Demanding little, giving on demand,
More inclined than most to grant the wings
On which we fly off to enchanted lands.
Though grandmothers must serve as second mothers,
Helping out with young and restless hearts
Each has all the patience wisdom brings,
Remembering our passions more than others,
Soothing us with old and well-honed arts.
Nicholas Gordon

Touch The Sky


Good Day, Beautiful People!

Today, I simply want to share with you one of my favourite songs that seem to stuck in my head for awhile now. Hope it blesses you like it is to me.

Touch The Sky
What fortune lies beyond the stars
Those dazzling heights too vast to climb
I got so high to fall so far
But I found heaven as love swept low
My heart beating, my soul breathing
I found my life when I laid it down
Upward falling, spirit soaring
I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground

What treasure waits within Your scars
This gift of freedom gold can’t buy
I bought the world and sold my heart
You traded heaven to have me again

My heart beating, my soul breathing
I found my life when I laid it down
Upward falling, spirit soaring
I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground

Find me here at Your feet again
Everything I am, reaching out, I surrender
Come sweep me up in Your love again
And my soul will dance
On the wings of forever

Find me here at Your feet again
Everything I am, reaching out, I surrender
Come sweep me up in Your love again
And my soul will dance
On the wings of forever

My heart beating, my soul breathing
I found my life when I laid it down
Upward falling, spirit soaring
I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground

My heart beating, my soul breathing
I found my life when I laid it down
Upward falling, spirit soaring
I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground

Find me here at Your feet again
Everything I am, reaching out in surrender
Come sweep me up in Your love again
And my soul will dance
On the wings of forever

Upward falling, spirit soaring
I touch the sky
When my knees hit the ground
