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.

What Really Works

“When we only do whatever works, in the end it really doesn’t work. Life has to have that ontic referent of the eternal from which the temporal must find its relevance.

Eternity is like the anvil; time is like the hammer – it beats away at the anvil of eternity.
Ultimately, the hammer will be thrown away; the anvil will remain.

So we must build our lives upon things that are eternal.” — Ravi Zacharias

“What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?”
— Matthew 16:26 —

Profoundly true. Perfectly timely.

Antidote

I do not understand the things I do. I do not do what I want to do, and I do the things I hate.
I really love God in my heart but there is another power within me that is at war with my mind. This power makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me.

Oh, what a miserable person I am!
Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin and death?

— Romans 7:15,22-24 NLT

The Only answer will find you.

Grace Moves!

Moving-On-

God’s grace fuels acceptance that paves the way for moving on.
Once we begin to move on, we’ll be surprised to know how far we can go from the point where we thought it was the end. 

“Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.”
So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.” —2 Corinthians 12:9 (NLT)

Strive Thriving

The feeling of being pushed on the brink of losing yourself and
just when you were about to grope your way out of the darkness
to 
start gasping for air to breathe afresh survival,
a scheming reality choked you.
That you are surrounded yet alone;
Needed but needing;
Moving but drowning;

Living yet dying. 
Hopelessly hopeful.
Quitting…

Hope in God

…and with a fervid desire to feed the pain for mundane gain, you succumb to giving up. 
Yet all of a sudden, the churning within calms as the Comforter comes, saying… 

“Don’t be afraid, I’ve redeemed you.
I’ve called your name.
You’re mine.

When you’re in over your head, I’ll be there with you.
 
When you’re in rough waters, you will not go down…

Because I am God, your personal God,…your Savior. 
.
…That’s how much you mean to me!
 

That’s how much I love you!

GOD (Isaiah 43:1-4, The Message)

Strive thriving in living and loving HIM.
May God’s unfailing love always be your comfort.

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.

What to live for?

                             Living for yourself, you get lonely

                                                              Living for others, you get hurt

                                                                                                Ever thought of living for God..?

What You Most Desire

What do you desire the most?

Is it fame, fortune, wealth, or  love?

If your answer is ALL OF THE ABOVE.

Then, my friend, you are missing life.

LIFE without CHRIST is NO LIFE at all.

 CHRIST should be the one you desire the most.

The MOST not the least.

“…I came so they might have life, a great full life. For I am the only way, the truth, and the life!”  

— Jesus Christ —

Stepping Stones

I do not ask to walk smooth paths, 
Nor bear an easy load. 
I pray for strength and fortitude,
To climb the rock-strewn road.
Give me such courage I can scale 
The hardest peaks alone. 
And transform every stumbling block,
Into a Stepping Stone.

— Gail Brook Burket

“He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless.” 

— Isaiah 40:29 (NLT)

I Offer My Life to You

Can we boast, then, that we have done anything to be accepted by God? No, because our acquittal is not based on obeying the law. It is based on faith. So we are made right with God through faith and not by obeying the law.

— Romans 3:27-28 (NLT)

Reckless abandon trumps overconfident religiosity.

The Fulfilled Cup

“Life apart from God is meaningless, but life with God at the center is full. It’s satisfying. It’s purposeful. It makes all the difference.”

“Right where I Am, God is.

All that I need I already have because the fullness of God

is right where I Am and ever shall it be so.”

 — Anonymous

“The Lord is my shepherd;
    I have all that I need…
   …My cup overflows with blessings.
Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me
    all the days of my life,
and I will live in the house of the Lord
    forever.”

— Psalm 23:1,5b-6 (NLT)

The Truth About Forever

Everyone thinks that forever is simply the exaggeration of life here in this world. If forever is simply stated that way, how then should we live our lives?  Better yet,  ask ourselves, what is truly the truth about forever?

 

“Life can be long or short, it all depends on how you choose to live it. It’s like forever, always changing. for any of us our forever could end in an hour, or a hundred years from now. You can never know for sure, so you’d better make every second count. What you have to decide is how you want your life to be. If your forever was ending tomorrow, is this how you’d want to have spent it?”                                                                                           

                                                                                                                   —Sarah Dessen

“And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? 

Is anything worth more than your soul?”

—Matthew 16:26 (NLT)

Never Think Twice About Coming Home

Very often what God first helps us towards is not the virtue itself

but just this power of always trying again.

— C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

Commitment to God is not just working to be a holy man,

not just laboriously living life by His book.

Commitment to God is also tirelessly running back to His arms despite guilt or sorrow when one fails Him.

Useless

“The highest form of vanity is love of fame.”

—George Santayana

…and it’s utterly useless.
