03/24 – Day 10: The Heart of Worship

Surrender. 

“Give yourselves to God… Surrender your whole being to him to be used for righteous purposes. ” Romans 6:13(TEV)

Surrendering should not be taken as a negative act. It is actually the heart of worship. It is how we submit ourselves for God’s glory without questioning his will. It is our in depth realization that God is love; fear, pride and confusion should not hinder us from completely giving in and living our lives for him and in him alone.

Trust. Trusting God is essential. You’ll never submit yourself into something you don’t fully believe in. Trust is when you finally know God and you let him into your life without doubts or hesitations. Love casts all fears. Learn to know how much God loves you so that you will trust him with your life.

God love us as he gave us his only begotten son. Jesus died on the cross to show how much he loves us. “I love you this much! I’d rather die than live without you.” 

Surrendering to God gives us freedom and not bondage. It is a realization that God is our Saviour and not our enemy who’ll bring us harm when we surrender. Remind yourself all the time that you are not in control with your life. We aren’t God and will never be. The more you let God rule over your life, the more it will be meaningful. We all become persons who he intended us to be.

Smile, God knows better.

When in doubt of my life, I completely surrender all my worries, my doubts and my fears to God. With him, I worry less. I surrender to his will and wait for his plans to unfold in my life patiently. Surrendered hearts show up best in relationships. You don’t edge yourself out of the situation, you accept it all — whole-heartedly.

I always pray that God will never leave me in times of trials. I completely trust his power because he is God, he is beyond what I can comprehend. Giving into his will takes a lot of courage.

As what E. Stanley Jones said once and as published in the book: “If you don’t surrender to Christ, you surrender to chaos.”

Say YES to GOD!!! Nothing under God’s wing will result to chaos. Trusting him and his divine plan will result to a more meaningful life.

03/23 – Day9: What Makes God Smile?

Source: http://i.ytimg.com/vi/Nog7oZJ_DbY/hqdefault.jpg

Today, I am actually feeling crazier than I used to. It’s like feeling mad with actually no reason to or maybe just feeling a little annoyed by someone. I had great dreams for the past 2 days already, thank you Lord my comprehensive exam is over I can now focused back with my life and my work which I am no longer so interested unlike before. It’s not hell, it’s limbo… I am a troubled soul. All I want is to forget but how? How can I forget if where I am right now reminds me of a love I don’t think I deserve. The past week, I feel so free and I realized that it’s hard yet I am able to forget because I don’t see him, I don’t get to talk to him then I can be that cold person I used to be. I am normal not the person I am in the office. I am that dreamy person wishing that maybe someday he’ll change and be more mature but I guess I was wrong and I need to be totally awaken by my delusions. He is not willing to tell me those words I wanted to hear and actions are just mainly crappy because assumptions my dear is just the root of all fucked ups. Geez. I am sorry, this is just me. With this, I know I am not making God smile. I am so sorry, God. I am such a disappointment.

Moving on to my reflections on my ninth day in this spiritual journey, we all need to make God smile with the things that we do. There are 5 ways to make God smile. Here you go:

  1. God smiles when we love him supremely. 
  2. God smiles when we trust him completely.
  3. God smiles when we obey him whole-heartedly.
  4. God smiles when we praise him and thank him continuously.
  5. God smiles when we use our abilities.

Never cease to make God smile. Aside from loving a person, love God above all else because he rewards those who loved him with all their heart and soul. My life is a little bit jaded right now but I will completely trust God even if there are times when my life doesn’t make sense at all. I have this faith that if I lay all my plans to God, he’ll work it all out and do what is really best for me. I will just continue to obey his words completely and exactly. With God, I should have no rooms for doubts and regrets. I will also not stop on thanking God for bringing out the best in me all the time and enjoy what he has done in my life. I could never repay the goodness he have showered upon me.

Thank you and I hope I made you smile no matter how crazy I can be.

May the Lord smile upon you…” Numbers 6:25 (NLT)

Last request… Lord, while you are working on the succeeding chapters of my life, can you help me sort out my love life too. I wish to find someone who will be able to cope up with my madness. Open my eyes to the realities, I need you to help me out in my decisions. Thy will be done.

03/22 – Day 8: Planned For God’s Pleasure

Source: https://pjcockrell.files.wordpress.com/2014/08/pog_banner.jpg

It is true, we are planned for God’s own delight. He takes pleasure in everything that we do and we should also remind ourselves of that. God intended us to live in this world because not just he want us to glorify him alone but for us to take care of his creations. We should enjoy our stay on Earth and bring that enjoyment to God because that is our purpose. We need to worship God everyday. We need to thank him for our lives. Worshiping God do not necessarily mean that we sing it, that we go to the church every time but it’s about recalling God in everything that we do. It is not about music, not about a tune — it is a lifestyle. Anything that you do that glorifies God is an act of worship.

03/21 – Day 7: The Reason For Everything

Source: https://encrypted-tbn1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSMDhBd5EHg6AgV31ENxgJxZAedh9FwEErYIu19CnIqBHNjUQGoYg

Everything comes from God alone. Everything lives by his power and everything is for his glory.” Romans 11:36 (LB)

The glory of God is who he is. 

We are God’s creation an I must say that we should bring God the glory that he deserves. To whom are you going to live your life for? Is it for your dreams? I hope not. We live for a greater reason and not for just fulfilling our dreams alone. Believe, I won’t cease believing in you my God because I know that you know what you are doing. I want to continue to feel your presence in my every day life and continue to bless me with the wisdom that I need to understand that my life is meant for eternity and you are the ultimate reason why I exist. I will continue to believe and trust in your power. I will continue to worship you by never ceasing to thank you for all the blessings you’ve given me. My heart shouts all my glory to you and may your will be done. Let’s bring glory to God by worshiping him all the time, by loving his creations, by becoming more like Christ, by serving others with our talents and lastly by telling others that he exist, that he is God that loves. Now that you know the reason for everything, I hope that just like me you’ll live your life all for the glory of God.

Have a blessed Sunday everyone!
