In this life I have learned to lean on an amazing and unfathomable kind of love. A love that can stretch as far wide as the corners of the universe. A love that is too deep to comprehend. Too vast to be understood by our feeble minds.
This hope that lives in me never fades. This joy that I experience in the midst of adversities is the very reason I have held on. Never again will life be meaningless. Never again will I cry in vain for the earthly struggles that come my way. For there is always grace in the power of the God that is Jesus Christ.
Even if the odds are stacked against me when a crisis comes, he gets me through, every single time! Some people would say that I am crazy or naive. Naive to think that throwing your life away for the son of God is a waste of time. But this is where I find profound meaning. This is where hope has rooted deep in the chambers of my heart. In fact the happiest people on earth are the ones that are less conformed to the standards of this world. The people who are really living, and not just existing. People who are serious in seeking his kingdom.
When I was a kid, I did not care about God or The Church or anything that had to do with Christianity. I went to church but did not understand the infinite importance of the gospel. I just had my own way all the time. The me first mentality that all of us were born with. But as I was growing up the me first kind lifestyle was not at all helping me in this life. It grew worse as the years went by. Even in the bible we can see that we are not to remain as children in this verse;
”When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.”
1 Corinthians 13:11
I realized being selfish is only going to lead me wanting more and more which is a lot like chasing the wind. It had to stop, and when it did. at least it kind of did. I felt I had a purpose. That I mattered to the universe to history and to God. By caring about others rather than caring about my ego all the time.
Now that I have knowledge of the Good news of salvation. I am not about to contain it in the casket of my selfishness. I am going to spread it throughout the world! Regardless of what I become in the future. But I believe God is with me forever. I believe that if he makes me successful in my studies, in my future livelihood, and in my future family it is not going to be of my own strength but of his grace and my cooperation with his will. I have faith.
God Bless you guys! :D in Jesus’ name. :)
