God made a perfect home. A hurricane, a storm came and broke the home. Dinged up, roof torn - leaking. A perfect home, perfect no more, but only a remain from the hurricane before. The storms already past, its gone - but we're still living in our broken homes, trying to live perfectly with an imperfect home. Let's renovate, let's build a perfect life - but first let's build, let's renovate and let's renew the God made perfect home.

When people break, they either want to break everyone around them, or they want to fix everyone around them. In their brokenness some people are compelled to never love again while others strive to love more. Love more.

Become creative in the way you love people. In order to love an individual authentically, you need to love them in way's that they feel loved. You need to focus on the details, on their details. What are the things that actually make someone smile, their eyes light up and their soul come alive. God created us out of love. God created us to love. Love is a creative act. So become creative in the way you love people.

Everything in its vastness, was created for you and me.

My life and yours, a beautiful creation for the world to see.

He moulded us with his hands, he pushed and he pulled.

He made us with perfect love, and yet we were still fooled.

So he gave up a piece of him, that we could be free.

Immeasurable love, for you and me.

We are beings made to be like our creator in spiritual personality and morality. At the core of our being, in our soul yearns the calling of a life lived as our creator crafted us to live. Within us all lies a perfect human being that our creator instilled in us. He also instilled in us the desire for reward and pleasure, and gave us the gift of choice. To choose to create and craft our lives, through the goodness of his spiritual personality and morality.

God created a perfect humanity when he made Adam and Even - and his greatest gift to humanity was choice. And with the nature of choice, we choose the bad. Jesus came to show us how to live and renew the perfect humanity.

If God was to cure the world from war today, humanity would start another war tomorrow. The problem isn't God, it is us. But what we must allow God to do is cure and heal our hearts to be filled with love. Only then can the world be cured of war and all it's problems.

If you allow yourself to be vulnerable at 100 per cent, you become 100 per cent invincible. Letting your guard down means you're letting people see what's inside. We think that this weakens us, although it makes us stronger. It gives us confidence and let's us be who we are.

We create religion to draw closer to God. To be with him, to gain his love, his grace, his favour. But God made it easier for us to be with him. Instead of us searching for him, he came to us. "All right then, the Lord himself will give you the sign. Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel (which means ‘God is with us’) [Isaiah 7:14]."

It's funny how things change. When we are young, we tend to align our lives towards our dreams. When we get older, this thing called reality creeps in, it arises and puts our dreams in the shadows. We live our lives stumbling, forward we assume, trying to find success and opportunities in the circumstances we put ourselves in. I don't know when it is that we seperate and decide that reality and dreams are not the same thing.

You are a masterpiece, created by the greatest artist in this world. Your life is a masterpiece, a canvas to paint your humanity on.

Don't generalise the people in your life. Look at every person individually. It will help you love people better. Every person requires different types of love and different amounts of attention.

We live in a world today where the levels of beauty have exceeded beyond the normal reach. Sometimes in our own lives we struggle to relate anything with the word beautiful. We are consistently told and made to believe that our existence and our lives alone is no longer in the realm of good, that we must always strive and move beyond our own existence to reach beauty, and even success and happiness. We have forgotten that our lives, and the way we live it, is the most beautiful work of art. That we are both works of art and artists.

People are quick to put themselves into categories. Sometimes on their own, and sometimes with the assistance of the world around them. I am an artist or I am not. When people stop to believe that they are no longer an artist, they stop to create. We go from learning and creating to only performing. We do, do, do what the world tells us to do, what we come to believe is right. We fall into this linear path of what we believe is the right path forward. And that's another thing, we think that we need to keep moving forward. That the wider our growth the better we become. We cease to look within ourselves and grow deeper within who we are and who we can become, and the work of art our lives can be.

Now when we look at the word artist, we think of someone who paints or draws. An artist is someone who creates. Creating, most simply can be making something of today, creating your past. I think the shift to realising that our lives are a masterpiece happens when we change from thinking, 'what do I have to do today' to 'what can I create today.' When we create, we must be authentic to ourselves. Our lives need to be an original and authentic representation of who we are. It is easy to see through an expression that is not authentic to us. And at the same time what is not authentic to us requires more from us to fulfil. Our lives, our masterpiece is an extension of what's within us, an extension of our soul.

Don’t just exist confirmed to the methods of this world. Don’t search for beauty where the world says to look. Search your soul and create your masterpiece from what you find within.

Why do we forget what we've done and the things we've learnt? We risk our lives to move forward. But when we have to take the same risk again in the future, we look at it with a strangers eyes - uneducated and afraid. Don't forget your experiences: where you came from, what you've done and the things you learnt.

You will stop to grow beyond who you are if you keep putting yourself inside a box. Move forward and explore, push boundaries and test insecurities. Re-tune your senses to see the world around and always keep learning. Within each of us is a person that yearns to explore the vast unknowns, don't box him in.

You can stumble on an idea that could revolutionise the world but without vision, team, planning, strategy, motivation and execution - your revolutionary idea will fizzle to a mediocre one. It's so easy to lose your drive and passion when you have to grind and put the hard work in. Learn to love the journey and never lose sight of your grand idea.

We are all different and unique in our own ways. We come from different cultures and have different backgrounds. We speak thousands of languages across the world. Some of us reside in the freezing cold, and some in the scorching heat. Some of us are born into wealth, and others into poverty. Some of us are just, normal, and some radically not. Although there are many things that differentiate us from each other, fundamentally we are all humans. We are all from the same species, made by the one creator. But yet we still allow our differences to dictate our emotions about our fundamental similarity.

Next time you make a judgment about somebody, remember that fundamentally we are all human, and that we were all made by the same creator.

It's hard to actually be truly yourself in the world we live in today. We are consistently consuming what the media is throwing at us. As human beings we consume things that we expose ourselves to. We pick up on mannerisms from other people, and the way people talk and the way people think. We are made up of experiences and moments, and not necessarily our own. But that's not a bad thing, it's what we do with who we become that matters.

Some people think that being individual means doing this world on their own. Which can we destructive. Either you eventually fail, or if you do succeed you leave a trail of destruction behind you. This world isn't meant to be done alone. It takes a humble person to come to an agreement that you need people and you need God.

Don't ever shrug off an opportunity to love by saying it's not my calling, by delaying it, by walking right past it, by ignoring it, by saying you're too busy, by following a system, by following religion and culture, by saying you're not capable, by being cemented in one mindset, by being afraid or by being plain down right stubborn. In the final days of judgment you will be judged on the opportunities you were given to love. Jesus said, "I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!"

It is easy to believe in history. But when history - when you take a fact and manifest it into an emotion, encapsulating it within who you are, it becomes your reality. You start living influenced and motivated by that fact - the history. It becomes a part of your being and everything that you do works through your understanding of the fact.

My parents moved to Australia for the better of my future. They love me so much that they sacrificed their lives, they were selfless, kind, full of love and compassion, they were brave - that is a fact. But when I allow that fact to become an emotion, it then lives within me. And when I live, I live through it. I want to love, I want to sacrifice my life for others, be kind and compassionate and be brave. I am made up by the emotions encapsulated within me.

You see it is easy for someone to take the history of Jesus and know it as a fact. But having an emotional understanding of what He did allows us to live through Jesus.

We're always asking God to show us the big picture. To tell us what our calling is, what exactly he wants us to do with our lives. We always get stuck because we feel as if nothing has been revealed and we end up going nowhere.

You don't need to see the big picture. You just need to know one more step, that's all you need to move on.

The world has had it's fair share of racism, sexism, violence and just plain as wrong.

But when we start creating segregation, making borders, creating separation, and we start highlighting and inflating our differences and our mistakes, that is when we start creating more problems for ourselves. Instead if we showed love and were compassionate and merciful. Instead of taking our problems to our social media accounts, what if we took them to our dinner tables at home.  Instead of pointing at all of someone's wrongs, what if you showed them the rights.

We live in a world where the bad is the famous. And in the same world so much good happens every single day. What if we started highlighting those moments. Wouldn't that inspire humanity to be better.

We've become methodical and systematic people.

We do things the way we do things because someone before us has done it that way. We keep evolving the procedures but not the system. We change the things inside the system as we stumble into new discoveries and new realisations. But we never question to think what is beyond the system.

We're all trying to shake the world. Trying to do something huge that will stir things up. But eventually things settle back down and things go back to normal.

To make an actually difference: start to work in people's lives, individually. Show people love. Love them for who they are and tell them about Gods love in an authentic way. Then you'll see the world start to change from inside out. It will spread like wildfire, it will become infectious.

How do you know that it's God's voice:

When there is a new understanding. A new way to see things, a new way to hear things. When you can see beyond your thoughts. When you can understand beyond your comprehensions. When nothing makes sense but everything seems right. When the answers come from within, a place where you can not see, but you know it's there.

We are enslaved human beings. Enslaved by our mobile phones, by money - our wealth, by pride, by fear, by our worldly rules. In ending a generation of slavery, we've created new ones for ourselves. We have become slaves to the systems. The systems that we put into place.
