It takes FAITH to be truthful. :)

Oftentimes circumstances in our lives challenges us to tell the truth even if it hurts; even if it will put us on shame, even if it will place you into trouble.

Because delivering TRUTH out from our lives demands us bear pain; to put down our pride; and to submit to God by FAITH. ♥

Keeping up a pure conscience will build confidence and peace in our hearts. It creates credibility to our personality. And most important, it pleases God to see us growing deeply in love with Him. ” If ye love me, keep my commandments. ~ John 14:15 ” ♥

There’s only one truth here on earth, and that’s the word of God! :) The only words that makes one person free from anything. “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free ~ John 8:32 “ Taking us away from deceit and ignorance ” As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance. ~ 1 Peter 1:14 ” And stirring us to seek His will towards our lives.

I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments have I laid before me. ~ Psalms 119:30

Excitement fires up, when everything falls into places. The flame even starts to roar when it goes beyond from what we’ve expected. And as the Sun stimulate heat waves, we can easily praise and thank God for helping us keep the fire burning.

As the flame keeps on raging, wind starts to breeze, the sky are becoming darker, until the rain pour. It’s like, the fire within is striving now to flame in the midst of a strong storm and heavy rain.

Crying out for the Sun to show up. Beginning to question “where is God?” Not knowing that the Sun being longed for never left its place. :)

Not feeling God’s presence doesn’t mean we’ve been forsaken. Sometimes storm clouds passes by, carrying heavy rains ready to pour and turn out the fire.

DON’T LET THE FIRE DIE! You and I can do something to keep it. Because the Lord has provided us His words full of instructions, promises, and encouragement that we can use as guide throughout stormy days. So we can keep the fire burning!

The question is have we taken His words?

It takes a leap of FAITH for us to feel the heat of the Sun in the middle of heavy rain. It takes a leap of FAITH for us to see the Sun rays in the midst of dark clouds. It takes a leap of FAITH to believe that God is with us through our deepest pain and sorrow.

Sun will always be there even in our stormy days. ;)

Together let’s keep our FAITH on Christ Jesus our Lord the only ONE Who can keep the FIRE burning! ♥ :)

 ღ And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. ~ 2 Corinthians 12:9

Life is not a game.

Definitely not a series of game, which move us to every pit stop directing us somewhere, either to level up or to repeat a current challenge over and over until we’ve used all our chances that lead us to experience game over.

Life is a WAR!

A life and death battle against evil; against this world; against ourselves.

All along we oversee ourselves engaging into the game of temptation.

” Don’t dice in temptation, the whole aim of that game is for us to see how far we can go without actually getting into trouble. If we appear to get away with it, we push a little harder, to go a little further. Yet the end can be as tragic! … Walking to please God can be pleasant and more rewarding than our pointless games. ~ J.S. Roberts”

Jesus said “Pray that ye enter not into temptation. ~ Luke 22:40b

Temptation is everywhere, every minute, every hour it is inviting us to play his game. If we don’t live our life as if we’re in a war, we’ll be easily deceived that life is just a game.

In playing games, we’re motivated to pursue to gain points and gain spare lives, to level up into somewhere we don’t know where we are leading. Games keep us exhausted yet stagnant. It’s alluring us, to go further, until we fall, and realized that the game is already over.

Battling in a war, we claim victory, fighting to gain integrity, standing firm to what we believe in, struggling to overcome the enemies. In full surrender to Christ Who overcomes death, keeping the faith and trust that in the end of the war, the exhaustion will turn into peace knowing we’ve serve our purpose giving honour to God our Father.

A player has luck, a luck that depends on his own scheme. But a warrior has faith, a faith that lies upon the grace of his God.

Let’s live our lives seriously. We are not a player, but a Warrior of Christ.

For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. ~ 1 Corinthians 6:20

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. ~ 1 Corinthians 10:13
