Lord, Please give me the courage to stand up for what is right no matter what it costs. Please reassure me that as I do this, You will make me a person who is truly free and full of joy.
God is so good, is all that I can say as I reminisced the timeline of my life. In my 19 years here on earth, I can’t help thinking about all the things that God did, I did, and all the people I know did, in order for the ‘roots’ to run through deep.
Ever since my childhood days, I knew Jesus. I already know who He is and why He came in this world. My parents told me so and I love them for that. But a mind of young gal has many questions, full of confusions. That is why when the strong wind blows, the young tree with underdeveloped roots will eventually be uprooted. But the patient Gardener always plant the young tree back. Took good care of it. Water it. Trim it. It grew well and healthy. The Gardener is pleased. The tree is happy.
Some people didn’t like the tree. Said, it is planted in the wrong place. Says, the sunshine cannot get through. Says, it is need to be cut. But the Gardener always encourage the tree to stand. Still Water it. Still Trim it. Still Take good care of it. The Gardener said to the tree, ” You can be a blessing. Share your fruit to the world that they may taste.”
That tree..This young gal… grew just fine till now and counting because God is with her. People may say I am too much God God God and neglected good opportunities.
But my God says, ” For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
Some says, Just forget the Sabbath and learn here, work here and you will succeed, your God will understand.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Matthew 6:33
Another says, too bad, you’re too pitiful, you can’t enjoy this life because of your God that prevents you to be happy.
My God says , “Happy are those who are persecuted because they do what God requires; the Kingdom of heaven belongs to them.” Matthew 5:10
I will cling and still cling to every promise of God, If God be for us who can be against us?
John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
GOD IS SO GOOD for loving me. That is why I love God because He first love me.
We are not trying to please men but God, who test our hearts. 1 Thessalonians 2:4
LET US STAND. GOD IS WITH US. GOD IS LOVE.
