“ The person that does God’s will for their life is the most fulfilled and satisfied person.” Ps. David
“Are we aware that the life God put in us is a divine life which cannot exist but through Him?” Ps. Eldos
In the light of deciding what I want to make of my life ahead of me.
Over the last couple of weeks, God has once again cemented His reassurance
in me through these words.I might not know what the future holds, but I know who holds my future.
finally understood the difference between these two today when Herman explained it in the sermon.
Mercy is withheld punishment | undeserved pardon | not getting what you deserve and Grace is unmerited favour | getting what you dont deserve.
most of the time, when I read about His grace and mercy, i only got the first half of it. but today, i realized the other half of it. I was pardoned from the penalty of sin and then showered with an abundant of love. And Im in awe again thinking of God. He not only loves, but He loves beyond what we could ever hope for!
its 3.51am on a Saturday morning.perusing my old photos and getting inspired by some. came across this folder i took last year at the hope anniversary. People often cringe at their own pictures. especially ones this close. but i find them beautiful. everyone of them. their eyes say it all. it tells a story of their character and things words cant fully express. friends of mine.
sitting in a bus, rolling down the cliffside of Sorrento from Naples cities makes you wonder.how in the world did people even begin building their lifes here? house upon house on mountains and valleys. you could hear the gasp of every tourist as the bus took a corner turn revealing the infinite volumn of blue seas, shimmering in the afternoon light.
sorrento reminds me so much of the islands of greece in a way and yet not.
perhaps it just the smell of the ocean nearby. other than that, sorrento doesnt carry the whitewashed walls that santorini does. instead, punches of colours fill every corner from blooming boungainvillas to neon coloured beach umbrellas, peach and lemon tone walls. its almost impossible to not take a picture of everything, everywhere we went.
Transitions. Change. New realities. Adapting.
Recent events lately had me seeing things in new light. and making me realized how much I’ve been holding on to what was and expecting the new realities to remain the same as they were. the biggest changes are always concerning the people around me. The people I love. But even people change. Situations changes, things happen that are out of our control. People move on, people go their separate ways. and what remains the same?Only God. He is the same yesterday today and forever. And God is so timely. He really knows our hearts. 2 dreams, group discussion on friday, one sermon, a passage in the bible is more than enough to realized what He’s been trying to tell me.
To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven.
And in verse 11, it’s a comfort to read these words.
“He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.” If there is one thing at all I’ve learnt in the past year, is to know and trust that everything He does, He does for a reason. And that all that He does (whether it might seem good or bad at that time) is for me to get closer to Him.
Changes come painfully sometimes. heartaches and all that. But what are those in the light of eternity? 2 Cor 4:17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. Phil 3:13-14 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
