Quote of the day: Pain has a way to keep us from being able to feel loved. And if it's left unresolved for very long, you can almost forget that you were ever created to love in the first place.

Evil is a word we use to describe the absence of good, just as we use the word darkness to describe the absence of light or death to describe the absence of life. Both evil and darkness do not have any actual existence. Light and good actually exist.
So removing yourself from God will plunge you into darkness. That is death because you have separated yourself from God, who is life.

What would happen if, instead of always (or even just sometimes) being afraid of what the future holds, thinking of it as uncertain and with a possible negative outcome, you always expected something good to happen?
What would happen if you always, 100% of the times, expected that the future would be good?
What if you expected that so much that it became a knowledge and not an expectation?
Can you imagine how wonderful, how much better your life would be?
