Timely

Time is a commodity we often times neglect. 

We thoughtlessly waste it when…

we fail to make time for our families, conveniently;
we fail to make time for the people whom we claimed we love and value, indifferently;
we fail to make time for people in need especially those around us, intentionally;
we fail to make time for ourselves, selflessly; and worse…
we fail to make time for the LORD who gave His all for us, nonchalantly. 

When we fail to make time, we fail to love; for love is spelled, T-I-M-E.

Lord, remind me how brief my time on earth will be.
    Remind me that my days are numbered—
    how fleeting my life is.
 You have made my life no longer than the width of my hand.
    My entire lifetime is just a moment to you;
    at best, each of us is but a breath.”
Psalm 39:4-5

Make the most of your time by making time.

Live!

Still, it’s what GOD had in mind all along, to crush him with pain.

The plan was that he give himself as an offering for sin

so that he’d see life come from it—life, life, and more life.

And GOD’s plan will deeply prosper through him.

Isaiah 53:10 The Message

No matter who you are, no matter where you come from, no matter what you’ve done,

GOD bled his heart out for you because He loves you.

And He wants you to live.

Who Do You Have?

He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.

— Jim Elliot

Life with Pleasure is too silly to be of colossal importance.

Life with God is too important to be of colossal silliness.

When you stop breathing,

When your body fails you,

When Death has swept you away,

the question at hand wouldn’t be

Where will you go? or What next?

In the end, every human being would have to face the reality of life beyond Earth.

In the end, there will be no room for reasons or excuses.

In the end, the condition of Life will be measured by the absence or presence of a Person.

It is by these truths that I ask all of us the Question.

Who do you have with you?

Wholly Holy

“We forget that God’s primary goal is not changing our situations or relationships so that we can be happy, but changing us through our situations and relationships so that we will be holy.”

— Paul David Tripp

pure heart

“So you must live as God’s obedient children. Don’t slip back into your old ways of living to satisfy your own desires. You didn’t know any better then. But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy. For the Scriptures say,
‘You must be holy because I am holy.’” 

— 1 Peter 1:14-16 (NLT)


Chasing for holiness paves the way for a life of wholly holiness for God that allows us to traverse the grand pursuit of the ultimate END in life — the pursuit of God
…a never ending chase for the Sole Prime Mover of life and beyond.

Chase holiness. Chase HIM.

Empty-hearted

One of the saddest parts of life is when we think that we have plenty when in fact, we are empty.

It is when we realized that more than being empty-handed, we are empty-hearted.

“Empty-hearted” that implies two resounding things:

First, it echoes the rhetorical classic,
“If a tree falls in the desert, and there is no one there to hear it, does it make a sound?”
Love without an object of love negates love itself.

Second, it’s a prequel to being brokenhearted.
A feeling of being pushed away; a constant subtle rejection that seems to never get tired of
breaking broken hearts. 

Negated love. Neglected love. 

Yet in this rock bottom quagmire, emptiness makes quintessential things clearer to see — that we are broken to be made whole again by the only One who can complete us and that the meaning of life that each one of us are striving to find can only be found in the One who created it. 

May our hearts cling on to this truthful statement made by the psalmist…
“If your heart is broken, you’ll find God right there…” 

God is love. He loves.

Stars In The Night

Image

And God made two great lights–the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night–and the stars. And God set  them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good.

Genesis 1:16-18 (ESV)

We know that in the darkest of nights, we have the moon and the stars to serve as our sources of light.

The same thing is true in life. Indeed it is difficult to see where you are going when all you see is darkness, yet God is the moon of our lives. In the hardest of trials, God will guide us. Though there may be times wherein the moon does not appear at night, it is still there. God may seem absent, but believe that He is still there for us no matter what. He also made stars to help shed even more light in the night.

Let us all be like stars that will help give off more light for people to continue walking in this dark generation.

More than words

“If you care little for [people’s] feelings, it comes out in your speech.
If we intentionally fill our hearts with love and respect, it overflows into our speech.” – Mandy Houk

“Whatever is in your heart determines what you say.”- Matthew 12:34 NLT
 
 
Your words set the tone in your relationships. So, digest God’s Word first.
