God’s Soldiers are not Lonely

DSC_6662

We know that soldiers are courageous men who stepped into a battlefield to fight for a country, organization, etc. They are defined exactly by ranks and names. What they do is part of their job. To fight, to protect and survive in any battle that they’ll be facing.

Here’s a situation: You encounter Christ, became a believer and decided to live out the best life by following Him; devoting you time, talents and treasures in service. If you are currently in this state then you are automatically qualified to become a soldier for Christ.

So what does it mean to become God’s soldier?

You are Special. Well you really are!

Imagine you are armed with the truth and clothed with God’s love every single day. Your life is filled with so much love and you are satisfied with the work that is given to you, and it doesn’t really feel like work at all. There’s no need for ranks and labels,  for we remain as mere servants of the Lord. It would make our hearts content and happy to serve Him and make other people’s lives better. Nothing can beat that! Do you agree? 🙂

You got this amazing feeling inside even though it can be challenging and demanding at times but you are confident that with God you will survive all the trainings and difficulties in life.

They say that lonely soldiers go home from a battle. But God’s soldiers are not lonely. Always remember that you are not fighting alone. We are together in this fight for the truth and in the fight for life.

So when you go to a battlefield… you just LOVE.

Your only task is to train others to LOVE as well.

When you’re able to do that then your troops are ready to fight!

Show Jesus

Show Jesus

We often hear folks uttering that they are frustrated, some are lost, unhappy and lonely.

Let me tell you something. These people are seriously thirsty. They want to find serenity and experience the best life there is. So what do you do?

Simple. You Share Christ to them. Well you were able to meet Him and gain unspeakable joy already and don’t you think others deserve to feel the same way? And of course on our part we really strive hard to be in connection with Him daily. Let’s show them how wonderful it is to be loved by God.

When you enter in a relationship with Jesus, unexpected things will happen. Greater change for the good of everyone. It starts small and eventually it will grow and have big effects not just in your life but on other people’s lives.

Sharing Jesus requires a total gift of self. If you know the truth about life and you keep it close to your heart, you can easily follow the will of the Lord and not really care about the sacrifices that the call entails.

You focus on how you can be an instrument of that love and just go out there. We may not be the best speakers or an expert in whatever field but the word of God lives within us and that enables us to go.

There are a lot of things that you can do. Allow the Lord to work in you and just always give your best. God needs a teachable heart and the good news is that He qualifies the unqualified.

Now ain’t that a good reason to smile or what? 🙂

Listen to this song by Jamie Grace entitled, “Show Jesus.” Have a blessed day everyone! 🙂

Forgiveness by TobyMac feat. Lecrae

“Forgiveness” by TobyMac lyrics

‘Cause we all make mistakes sometimes
And we all step across that line
But nothing’s sweeter than the day we find, we find

Its hanging over him like the clouds of Seattle
And ranin’ on his swag fallin’ deeper in his saddle
Its written on his face
He don’t have to speak a sound
Somebody call the five-o for we gotta man down

You can go and play it like you’re all rock and roll
But guilt does a job on each and every man’s soul
And when your head hits the pillow at the nightfall
You can bet your life that its gonna be a fight ya’ll

‘Cause we all make mistakes sometimes
And we’ve all stepped across that line
But nothing’s sweeter than the day we find
Forgiveness, forgiveness
And we all stumble and we fall
Bridges burn in the heat of it all
But nothing’s sweeter than the day, sweeter than the day we call out for forgiveness
Forgiveness, we all need, we all need, we all need forgiveness
Forgiveness, we all need, we all need

Mr. Lecrae
My momma told me what I would be in for
If I kept all this anger inside of me pent up
My heart been broken, my wounds been open
And I don’t know if I can hear I’m sorry being spoken

But those forgiven much , should be quicker to give it
And God forgave me for it all Jesus bled forgiveness
So when the stones fly and they aimed at you
Just say forgive they father they know not that they do

Now you can go and play it like you’re all rock and roll
But guilt does a job on each and every man’s soul
And when your heat hits the pillow at the nightfall
You can bet your life that its gonna be a fight ya’ll

‘Cause we all make mistakes sometimes
And we’ve all stepped across that line
But nothing’s sweeter than the day we find
Forgiveness, forgiveness
And we all stumble and we fall
Bridges burn in the heat of it all
But nothing’s sweeter than the day, sweeter than the day we call out for forgiveness

No matter how lost you are, you’re not that far, you’re not too far
No matter how hurt you are, you’re not that far, you’re not too far
No matter how wrong you are, you’re not that far, you’re not too far
No matter who you are, you’re not that far, you’re not too far

From forgiveness
Ask for forgiveness

‘Cause we all make mistakes sometimes
And we’ve all stepped across that line
But nothing’s sweeter than the day we find
Forgiveness, forgiveness
And we all stumble and we fall
Bridges burn in the heat of it all
But nothing’s sweeter than the day, sweeter than the day we call out for forgiveness
Forgiveness
We all need, we all need, all need forgiveness
Forgiveness
We all need, we all need

No matter how lost you are, we all need forgiveness
No matter how hurt you are, we all need forgiveness
No matter how wrong you are, you’re not that far, you’re not too far
No matter who you are, you’re not too far, you’re not too far
We all need forgiveness, forgiveness
We all need forgiveness, forgiveness
We all need forgiveness, forgiveness
We all need forgiveness, forgiveness

Oceans by Hillsong United (Where feet may fail)

This single is from the 3rd album of Hillsong United called Zion. To reveal who Jesus Christ is, that’s the goal of this album. Once again this Christian band never fails to touch my heart.

Check out this beautiful song and feel God’s presence as you sing-a-long with the video. Worth listening. 🙂

“Oceans’ (Where Feet May Fail) by Hillsong United

You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand

I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise my soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand
Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You’ve never failed and You won’t start now

So I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior

I will call upon Your Name
Keep my eyes above the waves
My soul will rest in Your embrace
I am Yours and You are mine

Breaking the Chains

Breaking the Chains

Nobody believes a liar.

When we commit sin, we are lying to God, to the people around us and most of all we conceal our very nature to ourselves. Breaking away from our original identity as sons and daughters of God. And besides, nobody wants to feel the guilt afterwards. Well you know what I mean.

I’ve read a tweet from Sam Grittner, a stand-up comedian from New York saying, ‘If you can’t trust a man named Wolf who can you trust?” I don’t know what it means to him but I take sometime to think about the line and I was brought into this reflection.

We cannot hide behind a mask forever. The Villagers hated the boy who cried wolf for giving false alarm and to not feel sorry about it. Then most probably they see the wolf as a wicked being that cannot be trusted.

Maybe we don’t think of it that much but sometimes we play the part of the boy who cried wolf committing our favorite sins but also there are times when we act like the wolf itself when things get out of hand and we’ve done things which seems unbearable not just in our conscience but in the lives of other people.

Nobody believes a liar. It takes away everything relationships, trust, ability to love and accept yourself anymore. People move away from you and you end up devastated. Our lives are not meant to be like that, for God tells us to cry no more and start living this life and anticipate a beautiful  future that he has prepared for all of us. He is merciful and very compassionate.

If you’re the boy who keep spreading lies or the wolf who are a threat to everyone else then you are considered as an outcast in the society. But God never isolate the ones he love. No matter what sin you bear or mask you wear God is willing to accept you. Forgiveness is true love and God will let us experience this only if we allow Him to do so. There are things that needs to be done and the first step is to accept that we’ve done wrong and then we confess it afterwards. The Grace of the Lord frees you from whatever chains you have. No more hiding, no more lies. Live the moment to the full by facing each day with a smile on your face and recognizing that you have a God to whom you can depend on and who will always be there for you.

Hey everybody loves a man and a woman of God. And there’s no doubt about it! 🙂

If not now, then when?

If not now, then when?

You spent all your life searching for things that you need and encounter countless items which are considered rubbish in the eyes of the one who can perceive beyond what the ordinary eyes can see.

What do we really need at this time? Faith? Healing? Change? To sum up everything it will lead you to a powerful 4 letter word that all of us knew, but a lot of times we take it for granted.

LOVE.

We all know what love is so the better question would be… When is the best time to love?

The answer is NOW.

There’s no other time to love a person, your family, friends or other people that you care about than AT THIS MOMENT.

If not now, then when?

Let us not be hypocrites. Pretending to live your life in a certain degree but end up neglecting the people that you should be taking care of, the ones who have loved you from the very start. It’s not about giving back that love but actually recognizing LOVE itself.

Before you heart it, you can see it. That’s for sure. We are like that by nature you need to see it in order to believe it. Of course you need to ask for you to see what love is, what it really means to you personally.

God is love. He let us experience love first by introducing Himself to us through Jesus Christ. He is the image of the perfect love that we are searching for and you know what? It’s standing right in front of us. Sometimes we just don’t see it and we don’t bother to ask. But the great thing about God is that He’s always there to rescue you. And He got this heart-melting lines to us such as, “I’ve got your back when life doesn’t.” He makes it a point that we always feel loved and special.

Now you can heart it and pass that love to every single person you know. Love now while you still can. It’s the best feeling one can have. You keep saying that you want to make the world a better place? Start by taking baby steps and later on run towards the path of Jesus. He can teach you the best way to experience and express that lasting kind of LOVE.
