Let it go

by Saturday, January 30, 2010

As people want to become Christians what they will think about first is whether to give up on the ungodly desires. Like tarot cards or fortune telling, these are the lies of the devil. But if you do not let it go, how can you be a devoted Christian?

Maybe we may think it is hard to give up on these desires, like your long undying passion. But think first, Jesus let it all go by dying on the cross. His finished work on the crosws is all for our salvation and for our ungodly passions to die out so that we may become imitators of Him.

Yes, it is very hard to put God first, especially when you first start off to become a follower of Christ. Then how can you be fit to say that you love Him with all your heart, soul , and mind?

The very first thing you must tackle is the lies of the devil. Always pray for discernment so that you may be able to differentiate between good and bad, godly and ungodly.

'Take up your cross daily, and follow Jesus.' Luke 9:23

The compensation

This is a story about a girl who is suffering from brain damage....her name is Susan..........

Susan is an unfortunate girl as her mother gave birth to her too late. being in her stomach for too long, Susan suffered from lack of oxygen, ending her up with brain damage. you can see the features of her head, it looks deformed.

At the age of five her parents passed away, due to an accident, leaving her all alone with her pet cat. when she know the news about her parents death, she weeped and weeped for days. No one can stop her. Before her mother died, she said her last words to Susan, saying' I want you top be somebody.'

Being a girl who was not preety because of her features, Susan was despised and bullied in school. As Susan grows up someone discovered her that she had a beautiful voice. She was made to go for a singing competition. as she did not have enough money to buy clothes before she went for the competition, she went to a clothes shop and used all the money she have to buy a dress that fitted her.

Before the competition there were people who offered to style her up. she did not feel that she need to change anything so she said to them,' can't you just leave me alone?' People started despising her by saying she look old-fashioned.

When she went for the competition the judges muttered to themselves that she was simply dressed. they had the impression that she would not sing better. full of her confidence, Susan sang aloud and made the whole congregation impressed with her.

when she was crowned first, she weeped and said,' i have done my mother proud! i finally did my best and i really thank God for this talent he has given me.'

Through this story, we can see that God actually did not forsake us. sometimes the sick or disabled may think that they are being abandoned or they are not perfect. but God created them like that for a purpose. no matter how people may despise them, God does not abandon them but compesate them through the ability of learning things fast and through the various talents they may have.

Be strong! for God is always with us....

A prayer of strength

by Thursday, January 21, 2010

O lord,
I know that you have annointed me
Anointed me to save the lost
Annointed me to save my generation

O Lord,
Why is it so hard?
No matter how much i try
What i get back is only rejection?

O Lord,
Help me to overcome my fear
The fear of rejection my friends have imposed on me
Let me be able to open my eyes to see your plan

O Lord,
I know that I need strength from you
A strength that will help me overcome all fears
I know that you are the pillar of my strength
For you are my healer
My strength

O Lord,
Just like how you have saved me
I know that you are more than eager to bring them back
I plead with you now,
Work in my friends, O Lord,
Let me see them get saved through you
For you make all things possible.

The calling of me was awakened,
And I know that I need to obey
For when your purpose is fullfilled
I will rejoice and praise you
My faith will be ever stronger.....

Rise up!! In the name of our Lord Jesus!!

Not abandon

by Saturday, January 16, 2010

As we live each day we should know that God is living in us. no matter whether we are suffering or whether we need help He will always be there for us. sometimes as Christians we face persecution, whether verbally or physically, it is all because we stood by God.

Whenever we are persecuted by our friends, like when our friends question about our faith or even make stupid remarks, by human nature we do feel dejected or depressed. But one of the most important things we must remember is that God will never ababdon us, and stand by us till the end, carrying us by His hand. this is of reference to the story of footprints, whereby it says' my precious child, I will never leave you. at the point of time where you only see one set of footprints, it was thenIi carried you.'

Even in the past where water baptism is for people to publicly declare that they believe in Christ, they may be put to death. just like stephen in the bible,he stood up for God but was later stoned to death, all these acts of fith were for one cause: the ultimate reward in heaven,

Maybe as we suffer as Christians,be it persecution or other forms,we may feel that God is not among us. we may feel abandonand start to lose the battle. bur remember that the ultimate victory is God, who is more than conquerous. even that is what the scripture telling us:

'Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you. but rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you will be overjoyed when his glorly is revealed.'
1 Peter 4:12-13

Remain faithful to God for whatever trials you are suffering, for if we endure, we will also reign with Him (2 Timothy 2:12).

A calling to perservere

by Monday, January 11, 2010

The calling which I have from God are these.
-Salvation for friends

Like sometimes I really have to be patient to wait for Him to answer me....
His abundant love really made me perserve till today. sometimes when i tell my friends about God and I face rejection, sometimes i feel that those are impossible cases. But since he made the impossible possible i really have to perserve that God will breakthrough their lives.

All this i perserve, in the name of our living God.....
