Preface My prayer and desire for Destiny Embrace Me “Lord” Let My Future Uphold Me is that this book refreshes and inspires the inner delicate side of you. I pray the greater one that lives in you rises up and declares victory in any circumstance you are presented with or headed towards.

However, sometimes this kind of complete faith can also make you take each other for granted – so be careful there.

STEPS TO GET CLOSER TO ALLAH Allah, the most Compassionate, the most Merciful, the exalted, is the Lord of all worlds and to Him we all turn to in all aspects of our lives.

That Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height- to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God - Ephesians 3:17-19 (NKJV). Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us - Romans 5:5 (NKJV). Growing in the love of God is mandatory if you want to please God and enjoy all that He has for them that love Him (Romans 8:28) and to ensure you will be with Him where He is. When you develop the love of Christ in you, serving God will no more be a struggle for you, you will do it with delight. Also, you will not be overcome by sin anymore.

When I pray, I try to tap the best qualities in the universe and in myself. I think of my prayers as prayers of promise, a promise to live up to my highest potential and to make a difference in the world.
Everyone who truly commits himself to the gospel finds his life expanding and his appreciation growing for all good things. His acknowledgment of God and his wondrous creations intensifies...Brothers and sisters, a committed person makes goodness look attractive. He builds an inner confidence as he learns light and truth and then practices it”(Elder James M. Paramore, A Personal Commitment). I plan to apply integrity but being truthful in all I do. No more justifying my wrongs or others, just being honest with myself and others but with the love of the Lord.
