Every day I thank God for being alive, for my sorrows that make me stronger, for my joys that make me happy, for the people that guide me and who I can guide in life.
A lot of people ask me how I can be so calm and peaceful all the time, how can I stay in balance.
There are a lot of tips on this website that will help you balance your life in one way or another but for me personally the first and foremost one is believing in Jesus, my Savior.
I haven’t been a believer my entire life and my life wasn’t in balance either. However, I feel that for some reason God was always looking after me (even though I didn’t deserve it), guiding me (even when I wasn’t accepting Him) and keeping me out of harm’s way. At some point in life (I was in my early twenties) I finally realized how lost I was and started making small steps to understanding God’s plan for my life better and, most importantly, living for Him and not for myself.
My life changed forever after that moment. My attitude to life changed. My everything changed for the best. I am not a perfect Christian and I know that I will never be but one thing I know for sure
The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge;
My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
~ Psalm 18:2

My favorite Christian movies:
Lt. Caleb Holt lives by the old firefighter’s adage: Never leave your partner behind. Inside burning buildings, it’s his natural instinct. In the cooling embers of his marriage, it’s another story. After a decade of marriage, Caleb and Catherine Holt have drifted so far apart that they are ready to move on without each other. Yet as they prepare to enter divorce proceedings, Caleb’s dad asks his son to try an experiment: The Love Dare. While hoping The Love Dare has nothing to do with his parents’ newfound faith, Caleb commits to the challenge. But can he attempt to love his wife while avoiding God’s love for him? Will he be able to demonstrate love over and over again to a person that’s no longer receptive to his love? Or is this just another marriage destined to go up in smoke?
