"Bondservants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh, not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but in sincerity of heart, fearing God.
And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men,
knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.” — Colossians 3:22-24
For months I’ve been placed a huge burden in my heart. And it gets inevitable of me to ponder that some walks in life are so dark and lonely that it feels like the light is so far away. People around are always bringing me down and words of hurt are not spared.
It got me thinking, “What am I doing so much for? Why does it seem like the more I love God, the more I’m doing things to please people.”
The whole concept of loving God is to please Him. Why is it so hard to love His people?
It never struck me that I was away from Him from all the burdens overwhelming my heart.
I want to renew my consecration in Christ. I don’t want to do things out of obligation but of love. I don’t want to walk this journey alone but to share this burden with a soul or two. I don’t want to lie to God that everything is fine anymore. I just want Him wholly in my life.
I’m so thankful God placed Siowmay in my life. No words can describe how amazing she has been and I pray that she will always be surrounded by angels sent by You. Always! :’))) Thank you Jesus!
You decide how you live and your feelings will catch up with it later. You can’t wait to feel like it. Everything in God’s entire economy is “believe first and see later”. Believe that you receive and you will get it. — Joyce Meyer
So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them. — Mark 11:22-24
I believe that I have been made right with God through the blood of Christ. I don’t care how I feel but I believe what God has said in His Word more than I believe in how I feel, more than what I think, more than what people say to me or about me. This is where I stand, I believe in the Word of God.
Thank You Jesus:
- for the day I got saved
- for seeking me during my first encounter
- for rescuing me from a near-death experience
- for filling me with love
- for healing me of hurts
- for mending my heart
- for a pure and open heart to reach out
- for believing in me when I doubted myself
- for beautiful angels around me
- for You
”But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty;
and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are,
that no flesh should glory in His presence.” — I Corinthians 1:27-29
How humbled and privileged to be serving in His kingdom where His love is so pure and His presence is so tangible.
I am who God created me to be. No more, no less. I am made perfect in the image of His eyes and all weapons that come against me shall not prosper.
