oF lEARNING... oF cHRIST

Lately, my relationship with Christ has bothered me... Its not that I don't love Him as much as I used to, it's not that I don't feel His prescence as much as I used to, It's just that I realise I have become increasingly fearful: I've let that familiar fear creep in, I've let my friends point to my insecurities that I hardly see my accomplishments- and in all humility, I am a quite accomplished fellow, I've let rejection from friends/ loved ones form value judgement as to how I perceive myself...
I just saw a post on http://www.hajel.blogspot.com/ titled 'Bring It On' and it's inspired me: every one deserves to read it. I have resolved to start afresh with Christ: to look beyond my past woes and look to His truth that reassures/ refreshes me daily... I have resolved to rekindle my faith: faith in family, in my friends, in my relationships, in myself... I have resolved to embrace His adversities as long as they are His will... I have decided to let go of fighting my demons, cast them to Him for He says the battle is His and the victory is mine, I've resolved that I wouldn't shrink or hide my accomplishments just so others would feel better, for theres a saying: ' by letting your light shine, you give others permission to do the same...

  2. Dear Abu,

    I've read your post with great interest.

    In life, there will always be people who will try to pull you down, who will discourage you, dishearten you, make you think that you can't make it. But quite often, these are the people who merely wish they had the guts to take the bold move that you're making.

    We should be mindful to take good advice, but also to surround ourselves with "encouragers" rather than doubters. God loves dreamers, just look at Joseph, David as examples.

    The beautiful thing is that we serve a God who doesn't put strictures on our lives, a God of mighty possibilities, a God who tells us not to worry countless times in the Scriptures and a God who wants us to fulfil our potential.

    So take time aside for yourself and the Lord, meditate on the Word, and just....listen to the voice of God. He'll always direct your footsteps. We just have to pause, be still, and hear Him.

    Stay blessed,
    Kissy
