Love won’t run out
In moments when you feel like you have given and given until there is no more of yourself to give, remember that love won’t run out. God has an infinite amount of love for you and for you to pass on to others. Even at times when the well seems dry, God can send a flood. Let the flood of love wash over you and then drench everyone around you.
You are not to shut love out of your life by saying it is impossible to find and keep.
The quickest way to find love is to give love. If you want it too badly, you will not find it. The most secure way to keep love is to give it space and care to grow. If you hold it too tightly, you will lose it.
A little Update… (I hope you’ll have time to read this :) )
Hello guys, how are you doing? How was your day?
Well I have a little confession to make. I know some of you noticed that for the past few months (including last year) I haven’t been posting or sharing stuffs until recently.
The reason is, I became lukewarm- Lukewarm Christian :( . As all of you know, there is no such thing as a Lukewarm Christian, but only a WARM Christian. I know you get my point here.
I don’t know what happened to me, maybe because I let my problems overtook me, like studies and other stuffs. And because of that I kind-of forgot who I am.
So, for those past months that I have been lukewarm, everything else around me seemed difficult, I flunked actually. I thought I could handle it with my own strength.
Because of what I have become, I kept condemning myself (which I know is really really bad, and it is not a Christian thing.) and I kept myself from talking with God. I forgot my devotion, my quiet time, and even prayer (huhuhu :’( )
At that point i felt so useless. Yeah you read that right.
But one day-Friday, I saw something that really broke my heart, and when I got home, before sleeping, I remembered what I saw and began crying. I cried up to the point that I feel asleep and my eyes got swollen. The next day, I opened my Twitter account (@Carpediem0421) and to my surprise my friend messaged me, saying if I want to go to church on Sunday. And to that point I felt something that made me move.
I went to church with my friend, the main topic was about “Why there are still Christians who feel defeated or considering their selves defeated?”
That was exactly how I felt. It shocked me, It felt like God was talking to me. It hit me, the preaching was all related to me.
So what is the message?
Here it is, “What you think affects what you believe, and what you believe affects how you behave.”
It’s very true. And now my FIRE is on, I am WARM and on the go. I know everything won’t go smoothly, but I know It won’t be difficult, because I know God is my strength and my shield. :)
I just want to say, for those Christian who feel what I felt, please do not condemn yourselves, do not think you are defeated! Christ died for you, you accepted Him. 2000 years ago he already claimed you, which means you have already won! Like what happened when Jesus was having his fasting for 40 days, the devil tempted Him, but it only took Him THREE verses to defeat that devil. Jesus stated, 1. “It is Written Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.” 2. “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’’ and 3. “For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.”
Whenever you feel defeated just remember the key phrase “It is written.”
For every week read your Bible, memorize one verse. For every verse you memorize, feel it, reflect on it and use it. We have 52 weeks a year, so you’ll have 52 verses to use :) .
Demolish that thought of yours about being useless, condemn, loveless, because you are not that kind of person. But you are a princess and a prince, Child of God, so why feel and think of those things? Remember that you’ve already won and nothing you do can make God love you less. Be on Fire! If you flunk or succeed, Praise Him, Trust Him, Pray and still be Thankful!
If you have anything to ask, say please don’t be shy to message me anonymously or not :) And mind if you share me your own experience?
When you are kind to someone, you set in motion a chain of events that makes each life it touches a little bit better. One by one, that act of kindness is paid forward … till one day it comes back to you multiplied.
Logic is argumentative, aggressive upon the mind, splits the world into right and wrong, us and them. Love is generative, compassionate, embracing all creation. Logic pays attention to what is being said. Love pays attention to how things are said. Logic leads to debate. Love leads to communion. Practice love to be closer to God.
No matter how deep the abyss or how powerful the storms you face, everything can change for the better in a day, a moment or an instant. Hold on and know that your current circumstances will pass.
It’s been awhile. Things just got so busy in school. This week, we’re having our comprehensive exam, just how cool is that T_T . We need to review all the things we had tackled from prelims to finals. It’s just that, it’s tiring to read all the things you just have read or studied, well on the top of that, it’s for our good.
Anyway, I just want to share my dream last Sunday. It was so surreal. The feeling of you don’t wanna wake up and just live in that dream.
So, in my dream, there was this guy who is the captain of a luxurious ship whom I fell in love with. He is a tall, handsome and caring guy. There was an event and he was assigned to bring the ship over to a big mansion, that was situated with in an island. My companions and I were a guest to that said event, and we’re on a different Island. He and his crew together with another captain came to fetch us, and we met.
Well my dream is kinda long, but to make it short, we fell in love, married, and had a beautiful daughter. My dream ended to the part where I hugged him while sleeping.
I woke up missing the feeling of being in-love. I know it’ll come on the right time. And I believe in God’s timing, it’s always perfect.
God loves you with the very air you breathe, the very light that touches your skin, the very ground that supports you. Love is everywhere, - melt your barriers, and you will have love in abundance.
Do not forget that God is with you, He will never leave you.
In times of distress, troubles, success and in everything, He’s beside you. He is watching you, guiding you and giving you comfort.
He is like a wind, you cannot see him, but you can feel him, he is there :)
God knew you were going to be special to someone..that’s why he created you. Be happy with yourself, and know you are loved.
Coveting is wanting things that we do not have. The world shoves us toward the lie that we must get more, be more, and strive more in order to feel satisfied. The problem is we are NEVER satisfied! Jesus offers a different way. He offers us His peace, His joy, and His contentment. This is a beautiful gift. Guard against coveting with prayers of thanksgiving for all that Christ has given.
