" I HAVE TOLD YOU THESE THINGS, SO THAT IN ME YOU MAY HAVE PEACE. IN THIS WORLD YOU WILL HAVE TROUBLE. BUT TAKE HEART! I HAVE OVERCOME THE WORLD."
i have to admit, life hasn't been easy and even that would be an understatement. been so tired till the point where i just feel like letting it all go, letting it all fall apart and just simply giving up.i hate having to make hard decisions, to force myself to do something that i know will hurt. i question and i wonder why life has to be like this, filled with so much that's beyond my capability, filled with all this nonsense that i don't want to cope with.
yet looking at what my devotional book has been writing, it's been a new source of encouragement for me,
1When he had finished praying, Jesus left with his disciples and crossed the Kidron Valley. On the other side there was an olive grove, and he and his disciples went into it.
2Now Judas, who betrayed him, knew the place, because Jesus had often met there with his disciples.
3So Judas came to the grove, guiding a detachment of soldiers and some officials from the chief priests and Pharisees. They were carrying torches, lanterns and weapons.Jesus knew what He had to do and He made the decision to walk into His fate.
can you imagine how long and silent that journey was for Jesus?
He knew that for each step he took it was really a step towards persecution, pain and death
i often question why God chooses to deal with me in such a way, i ask him why he put me into two different churches (bethel and fcbc), why he put me into such a predicament, why of all people he could have chosen he chose me. honestly, it's great to live this life i'm living, it's great to know that i'm so special in his eyes, but the entire package that comes along with it isn't all that wonderful.
"to those who have been given more, more is expected of."
in order to shine for jesus we have to do hard things for him, and as for me it's really going against all odds and breaking down all boundaries. trust me it's really really hard, but i want to be like Jesus, walking into Gods plan for His life even though He knows how painful and hard to process would be like.
LIFE'S NOT EASY BUT GOD HAS OVERCOME THE WORLD AND WITH HIM I'M SURE I CAN TOO

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
