The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive our debts as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

After several weeks of failures to recharge my cellular phone, I took it to two different technicians to see why it wasn’t charging. After performing tests, I was told by each technician at separate locations that my cellular phone was impossible to charge. I took the cellular phone home, and made the decision to try once more to recharge it. Before connecting the cellular phone to the same charger and using the same electrical outlet I had been using previously to charge it, I prayed and left it plugged in to the electrical outlet overnight, as usual.
My decision was to discard the cellular phone the next day, if it did not charge.
The next morning, when I disconnected the cellular phone and turned it on, it made a loud sound showing a complete full charge. The sound was clearer than previously. I have discovered that it holds a charge much longer than my newer cellular phones. Also, I am able to make phone calls from locations that I had not been able to do in the past with this cellular phone.
Mysteries are difficult to understand and miracles occur in different forms. The lesson I learned from this experience is to have hope in a power that supersede all of our knowledge.

As of today, the carrier replaced this phone with a smart phone free of charge to me, due to they are going to discontinue marketing it as of this month. As of today’s date, this phone and the charger were providing service at the time I activated my replacement phone.
Miracles are special events to remember. I will always remember these miracles. I placed my cell phone and charger in a special place of memories and whispered a prayer of thanks. My faith in God was increased because of these Miracles.

Trusting God in the Midst of a Battle is a Challenge
The things that challenge our trust in God also, challenge our confidence within ourselves.
These are the challenges that comes to weaken our hope and test our faith.
When facing challenges that are so furious and you feel the intense of the force from their aggression against you, the battlefield becomes yours, and your enemies. You seek for Hope and it appears to be too far to reach. You call for Faith, and it does not answer. Instead, you see a stormy sky filled with a horrible darkness, and hears the loud sounds of thunder that shakes the ground upon which you stand. You look for Strength, and you see the fiery veins of lightning hitting the ground, and the destruction it causes come near you from each hit that shakes every nerve in your entire being. You desire Peace but instead, the challenges increase, and you hear a voice from within you cry out to God for help; the sky clears, and the sun appears.
There comes a time when we have to place the battle in God’s hands, and wait to see his glorious power prevail on our behalf.
My personal thoughts
Regardless of the challenges, the sun will always shine again, Hope will return, and Faith will conquer. We become stronger and wiser with each battle from the challenges that are placed upon us. Within ourselves a special kind of trust and peace dwells in our heart and soul, that gives us confidence.
“They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength”. The prophet Isaiah

My Personal Story: I have experienced such treatment (Leadership Abuse of Power)
“The greatest discovery is to find a hero within oneself that will choose life over death; and fight for hope through despair to possess the will to live.”― Ellen J. Barrier
People who have fought against the darkness of an evil force filled with mental anguish, hate, and suicidal thoughts and voices of evil, telling them to kill themselves and take the lives of others, won when they searched for hope. Instead, they persevered and snatched their life from within that dark world, and became respectful citizens living in society and making a difference in the lives of others, who they themselves were once like, have saved the lives of many others, by telling their stories. They are among the greatest heroes.
“Evil imaginations causes harm to others.
Such things do not dwell in the mind of a righteous person.”
― Ellen J. Barrier

In order for one to be able to prevail in the face of obstacles, there has to be something to inspire them to hold on. That is something or someone that they can trust, to provide them with hope, and the strength they need. Those are the blocks that build confidence. To succeed in the business world, one has to believe in themselves, that that can achieve in the face of every obstacle. Having patience, is a great reward at the end of a successful dream. “Believe that you are the best at what you do. And work hard on your abilities, to make it true.”

“We can’t control our destiny. We can’t go back into our past history and make changes. But we can begin this moment by setting a goal and pursuing it for a better life with a greater purpose.”
