Come with me Lord, lets do this together. I’m not afraid.
"But the thing is even though life gets harder, with God it is more bearable."
I just said this to my friend and I thought “Damn I need to tumblr that asap” LOL
"If the world hates you, remember that it hated me first."
THE HARDER YOUR LIFE, THE GREATER YOUR TESTIMONY
To be honest yeah I want a great testimony. One that could encourage people in some way. I know a lot of people would love to have a great testimony too so people could be like “wow she’s so inspiring…” etc. Though having a great testimony does mean going through many obstacles. So when something bad happens to you and you feel like blaming God, just think, hmm Im gonna have one great testimony lol.
The Lord is using you to encourage others. Plus it makes us stronger, spiritually as well.
You may be going through tough obstacles now but how you get through those obstacles by telling your testimony to others may just help someone in the future.
Why are you always so happy?
Seriously why do people always ask me this. I should be asking them “Why aren’t you?” lol But of course Im not always happy. I have my days but people don’t notice bc as a christian you learn to be patient and have faith in God when things go wrong. So I don’t go around telling people my problems I leave it to God bc no else understands me or can help me the way he does, for he knew me before I myself was born. I find it more peaceful this way, leaving my problems to God (obviously praying/fasting at the same time).
So when you ask me why am I so happy, its bc of God. My life isn’t easy but its comforting knowing that God will always be by my side.
Worldly Love vs Godly Love
There’s Worldly Love and then theres Godly Love.
For a long time in my life worldly love seemed so wonderful to me. But can you blame me for THINKING that? The media portrays worldly love like its so wonderful, but really its empty. Its like getting a present that is beautifully wrapped up but it cost a lot of money and you want it so bad so you spend all your life saving up enough money to buy it. Then finally you get enough money and you open it up just to see nothing. After all that nothing, its empty. This isn’t what you expected at all. Though the box is still beautiful so everyone thinks you have something so awesome. When really your feeling empty inside bc this isn’t what you wanted, its not what you thought it would be.
Now, Godly love. Is not what I expected it to be. It’s more than wonderful. Just finding out that there’s actually a God and he knows everything about you flaws and all. And even though you’ve sinned many times he still forgives you. He sent his one and only son Jesus to die on the cross for YOU. Why? Because your worth it. Thats love, there’s nothing greater than that love, Godly Love.
I’m sick and tired of the media portraying worldly love as some awesome thing. It just causes us to try and find love in places where true love doesn’t exist.
You know your christian when…
you have anointing oil (olive oil) stains on your wall
When your younger sibling corrects you for doing something unGodly don’t get mad at them. Put your pride away and listen to them! Be happy that they know right from wrong.
And with the Lord I will unlock the door of impossibilities
