Who would say that the world is easy? yes, it's not.
As we go older we would really appreciate the importance of every little moments in life, time indeed is important. For the past 3 years i have been living as a Christian, born again or what, name it. I thought that living a Christian life would be easy, no, it's not. It's a lot of sacrifice.
This is not to discourage, this is just to face the reality that discipleship is not easy, that life is not easy that even Christians do stumble down and dig their selves into the deepest core in earth when troubled.
I became a Worship leader, i became our church's youth president, i became a cell leader, these tasks came so fast that even my personal life has to be set aside in order to give time to ministries and to people, for young people. Everyone thought that these tasks are cool, singing on the stage in front of the congregation, planning, thinking nights, dealing with stubborn people, learning to love those that doesn't worth loving, thinking for their future for the ministries though they not see it or perhaps don't appreciate it, but hey, it's not! FACT!
|Carrying the cross: Hardships & sacrifices as you serve the Lord|
Sometimes, people would condemn you, question your decisions, tell you what to do, look and will judge you, they don't see what your plans for them but all they have you for return would be questions. They would measure your spirituality, will compare their's and your's, no mistakes, you can't be weak, people look at you. YOU ARE A ROBOT? AM I?
Now that makes me think, we are like that, we are stubborn from God's plan and his timing. We are impatient, we lose hope, we are discouraged because we can't see His purpose.
However, no regrets. Ha! I AM BLESSED, those troubles became my strength, love even more, love more less myself, control my temper, my desires, fleshy desires, laugh my challenges, it made me even a great person!
|The encircled is actually my fave but look |
at Matthew 5:10 "Blessed are those who are persecuted
because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Challenges in life may come but don't forget to pray and ask strength from the Lord, you'll surely overcome it!.
