i want you to watch this… IT’S A VERY VERY IMPORTANT REMINDER FOR US ALL.. John 3:16 <3
Fighting the good fight is never easy — neither impossible. I want you to ponder on the thought that each and every person out there in the world is fighting their own spiritual warfare. As believers of the faith, THAT should compel us to move. Ponder upon this.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. (Philippians 4:8)
You and I live in a tremendously selfish world. Us, getting angry is simply just a choice. To be angry? Or not to be angry? And that is the same situation with fear. To fear? Or not to fear? It’s as straightforwardly straightforward as that. I read a quote regarding tough circumstances. In general, it says: our circumstances do NOT determine God’s character — He is always and forevermore good.
*Analogy here: our vision is super VHS-sy compared to God’s ultimate HHHHHHHHHHHD perception.
My advice to those who are:
- encountering life’s storms right now is to BE COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY STILL. Have faith. Have hope. Have love.
- in their “valley faith” is to MAKE THE EFFORT. Make the effort to have an ever-developing relationship with our God, One and Only. Establish friends in the faith. Stay away from temptations.
- in their “mountaintop faith” is to REMEMBER WHAT YOUR SPECIAL ENCOUNTER WITH GOD FELT LIKE. Record them (eg journaling). Share your experiences. To remember, I believe, helps us rise from the ashes.
God understood the importance of the “small group”. He knows that the journey of the Christian faith is not meant to be travelled on alone. Oh, how I wish I could give you a huge, friendly embrace when you need/ed it. So, *virtual hugs* everybody!
I hope I’ve made an impact on your precious life somehow (even the slightest of the slights, hopefully). Remember that you’ve been made with a special purpose and a special plan… And when the right the time comes, it’s just going to be indescribable. DO NOT EVER THINK THAT YOU’RE ON YOUR OWN, BECAUSE WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER.. (it’s just that we’re scattered all over the world.. hehehe)… So, stand up. Stand firm. STAND FIRM IN THE LORD.
Every generation needs a new revolution. (Thomas Jefferson)
*virtual hugs* Thanks! God bless!
” If I had to change my religious beliefs, I will not marry the person I love. Because the first person that I love is God, who created me. And I have my faith, my principles. And this is what makes me who I am. And if that person loves me, he should love my God, too.”

“BE HOPE for someone else and give your life purpose in the process. Life has a series of victories and pitfalls, but within our own stories, and through our personal testimonies, we can build connections with others, by being a friend in hope.” (http://www.somethingmorecampaign.com/)
