Muslim Teenagers
Sadiq Gill -
for Motivating Teenagers

By Victor UsifoThere are different phases of growth in an individual's life and because teenagers are human beings, they are no exceptions to the rule. During this period of physical development of the body, teenagers are irritable and unruly and parents find them hard to manage.At this crucial time of their lives, parents worry about their children's welfare and future prospects. It is okay to be concerned. But being worried does not solve any problems. In the alternative, parents should make an effort to find out how to motivate these teenagers, instead of just hoping that all would be well someday.To rectify this unhealthy situation, I urge parents to follow these reliable strategies for motivating teenagers. They include: getting information, learning from counselors and being more understanding. The other factors are; being patient, developing effective communication skills, praying and having faith.Let's clarify how these strategies could... (more)

God's Counsel Stands
Date: Tuesday, August 04, 2015 Chapters: Isaiah 43-46 Message Title: God's Counsel Stands Hello My Friend, How often do we face some kind of affliction and after a while start to question why God allows these things in the first place? Pretty often I believe. We all have these expectations, even after we are saved, but sometimes they are far from what we tend to get. God gives us the life that He wants us to have, we may not understand how and why He puts us where He has us, but we can understand that he has a great purpose for it, even if it is something so tragic that we cannot fathom why He allowed it in the first place. Affliction of any kind brings us closer to God, and brings others to Him as well. “Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure: I...

Dark of the Moon
Mixed Bag
A co-worker recently asked me what my hopes, dreams and fears were. "I just want a place of my own and to not have to keep moving, like, every year. My fear? Every time I see a homeless person I'm scared that that'll be me." It would be nice to stay in one place -- somewhere clean and safe -- for longer than a year or two. To "nest" and decorate without worrying that it's a waste of time and money because I'll just be leaving in a couple months. With my first place I had saved up some money but shortly after moving in my work started laying people off and I didn't know how much longer I'd have a job. So I never really "decorated." It was basically bare bones. Then I decided to go back to school and rented a little basement bachelor. Money was tight as I was working only part-time, so bare bones it was again. My father then asked me to move back in with him and so move again I did. The apartment was already nicely furnished thanks to my dad's horrible GF and I tried to embrace... (more)

Warum bin ich so darauf erpicht,
Probleme zu erzeugen?

Es ist sehr schwierig, ohne Probleme zu leben, fast nicht moeglich. Und warum? Weil die Probleme mich ablenken. Die Probleme halten mich beschaeftigt. Ein Problem gibt mir was zu tun, es haelt mich auf Trab. Wenn ich kein Problem haette, koennte ich mich nicht staendig an meiner Oberflaeche aufhalten. Ohne Problem wuerde ich in mein Zentrum fallen und von ihm aufgesogen werden. In meinem Zentrum bin ich leer. Es ist wie die Nabe eines Rades: Das ganze Rad bewegt sich um diese leere Nabe herum. In meinem innersten Kern bin ich leer - ein Nichts, Nichtheit, Shunyam, die Leere, abgrundtiefe Leere. Und weil ich vor dieser abgrundtiefen Leere Angst habe, klammere ich mich an den Rand des Rades oder an die Speichen, wenn ich ein bisschen mutiger bin -, aber ich bewege mich nie auf die Nabe zu. Es macht zu sehr Angst; ich fuehle mich unsicher. So kommen mir die Probleme sehr gelegen. Wie kann ich nach innen gehen, solange... (more)
