I did not ask to be born

The day you understood you were a human being, facing many problems, and realised that things were bad for you, quite probably this thought came to mind in one way or another: “I did not ask to be born” … which is true!

Although we did not have control over the day we came to this world, we can decide where we will be tomorrow.

That is nothing more than the truth. You can decide how you will live your life tomorrow, for life is made up of choices.

It is not bad luck, curses or witchcraft that will decide how you live your life, but your own words.  Yes, the words coming out of your mouth will determine how you live your present as well as your future. “Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so.” James 3:10 (NKJV)

People who are used to going through hard times and suffer a lot have the bad habit of saying negative words. They usually come up with things like: “My life is rubbish, I am useless, I am a nobody, I am always the last one, I cannot do it, I don’t have the circumstances, no one helps me…” etc,  etc, etc.

In other words, people are constantly cursing themselves. This explains why people are sinking deeper and deeper into a pit of problems.

Therefore, it is important that you change your mind … change your words in order to change your life! That is why we print this newspaper with the title “Stop Suffering”.  These words are meaningful and meant to lead you to a transformation in your life.

The testimonies you read are an invitation for you to change your life. If you are willing, start by saying the following words: “I decide now that my life will change and that I will stop suffering, starting now!”

Dear reader, you don’t need to live the way you live, in pain and distress. God wants to transform your life and He wants to do it now! Do you want to achieve a new way of life? Then do what those testifying here in this newspaper did, join us and learn how to use your faith to change your life!

God bless you,

Marcelo Pires
