I am EVER so thankful for this week.
New changes in my life, but none the less, i am still pretty happy
JOY-ful to be exact
When you are pursuing God with your whole heart, indeed He will grant the desires of your heart.
Every single day i am tired, exhausted, my energy depleted, feet sore and not much physical energy left to carry me home, but Jesus grants me HIS strength, HIS grace to carry me till the end of the day. and that is enough.
But seeing that i am doing HIS will in all whom i meet and interact with brings me tremendous joy.
something that nothing in this world can replace.
the joy of giving.
of bringing the love of Jesus to others.
a simple gesture of kindness, smile,
or even receiving a random act of kindness from others simply brightens up my day.
Because Jesus lives in me and i live in Jesus
No pressure. but once i take notice of that, i know i am never alone
because HE fights my battles with me
even at difficult moments, moments when i feel like quitting being a nice person, i know that Jesus never gives up on me and pushes me further-to go beyond my human limitations
to pray for others, to forgive their mis-givings and be glad that my soul is constantly under purification, to being a better me. who god has called me to be. not for my sake, but HIS. because he rescued me, he loved me, he is my best friend and he cares for me.
Doing every act, with love and kindness – What Jesus teaches me
Even if the world seemed so good, it is not, because when you have JESUS, you have everything! How can i possibly trade Jesus for any other thing than HIM?
One who sheds HIS blood, hanging on the cross, for sins and fault he committed not. HE humbled himself and gave me new life, in HIM i will place my trust, now and forever. Amen.
One verse to part with you:
Trust in the LORD with all your heart. Never rely on what you think you know. Remember the LORD in everything you do, and he will show you the right way. – Prov 3:5-6
