"For God love the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life." -- John 3:16
and better than ever! (: In the past months I gotta say I have fallen, I have failed God, and my heart and mind has been filled with impurities. :/ It hurts me and I did not know what to do about it. Everyday I try my best to get closer to Him, but nothing seems to be improving. Praise God that all those frustrations ended this week.
How? Well, one of my brothers in Christ asked me if I wanted to go to this youth service at a church nearby. We use to go there together, but we stopped because he has been busy at work. It’s been 9 months already. When we got there this week it was just a devotional of Psalm 50—very great message. I was wondering why the sermon didn’t take that long, and it is because it is the release of their new album Love is the Agenda, and they performed all of their tracks live! It was a very awesome worship and the songs really spoke to me. It was amazing!!! :D I love worship. The song just depicts my feelings and what I wanted to say to God. It made me sooo emotional to the point that it made me cry. It’s like that feeling of accepting God for the 1st time in my life. :D
Another was yesterday, my church had a youth concert for Halloween and they had 3 bands playing for worship (Morning Drive, The Rekoning, and Lakeshore). Worship was great, still put me to tears and definitely rethink my life and how I can live my life better for the Lord. What an awesome week! (:
God really hears prayers, when you feel like every thing is failing, or is against you, just never give up on God, and always have faith. One of the things that instill in my mind was a message from Pastor Ronny Roa at Generate. He said that whenever we sin, just give it ALL up to God; to compile all the dirt that you have in your life and give it all to Him and tell Him “I don’t want these in my life anymore, take it all”. He said to do that everyday and not burden ourselves with our sins because God is a very forgiving God; and once we are forgiven, God puts away our sins as far as east is from the west. I looked up the scripture in this and here it is.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” — Matthew 11:28
“He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west.” — Psalm 103:12
The thought that came to my mind that really convicted me is that, I am His daughter; I am God’s child. An image of my dad and I came to mind, and I thought that I should be that close to God, and that is how close God is to me. Just having that thought makes me smile. My father is the creator of all the universe and he will never leave me alone. :D
1 John 3:1-10
The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. — Romans 8:16
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. — Romans 8:28
Bought 3 new worship CDs today. I will be posting my favorite ones later on. I hope you guys will be blessed by them as much as they did with me. (:
