So, it’s been a while since I last posted a blog. I admit, I’m a bit skeptical about so many things now, and my view with social media has changed these past few years. I used to post a lot about random stuff in social media, especially on Facebook, but I realized it’s not really an ideal thing to do as people can be harsh and privacy is a good thing. However, I also feel less expressive and self-expression is healthy. Well, maybe the reason why I took a break is because I just didn’t know what to post anymore and I overthink a lot about what people might think. I also didn’t want people to think that I am self-centered or vain as what I think about others who post in social media lately as they always just post about what’s going on with their lives, the “me” concept, and just wanting to be praised and just seeking for attention. I was that. And I didn’t want to be that anymore. I want to be someone who is non-judgemental, selfless, kind. I already am the apple of Someone’s eye and I don’t have to ask for validation from anyone anymore as I have already been validated by the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. Yes, I still believe in Jesus, despite the criticism and persecution I have experienced after I proclaimed that I believed in Him and claimed to be His follower. Well, I admit I wasn’t a good follower. I failed a lot. However, I realized that not only I, but most of the great men in the Bible, also, in some way, fell short and stained the Holy name of God. I guess it’s true that
"No one is righteous, no, not one." - Romans 3:10 and that "We all have fallen short of the glory of God." -Romans 3:23
Well, I wrote what I feel about writing and somehow it almost always goes in that direction (Christianity). Maybe knowing Jesus in an intimate way really impacted my life and what Kim Walker-Smith said is true: “You will never be the same again when you encounter the love of God”. We can’t shut up. Peter, James and John didn’t. Paul didn’t, even when he was in prison. So, I encourage you if you’re a Christian who is silent and hesitant to preach the word… I became silent and hesitant too. I thought about pleasing the people rather than pleasing God. But now, it doesn’t matter anymore. I have started this and God will surely finish it, and it is His will for me to share the Word. What better thing to share about now than the Timeless Truths of God’s Word and the Blessed Hope who is Jesus Christ?
“In this world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” -John 16:33
This world is not our home. There are a New Heaven and New Earth prepared for the children of God and it’s way better than the world we currently live in. All we have to do is to believe in Jesus Christ, ask for forgiveness and repent from our sins, and follow Jesus all the days of our lives until we see Him face to face.
We look at the creation and we see its beauty. But how much more beautiful is its Creator – the One who designed all this? Won’t He be 10x, 1000x, 100000x more beautiful?
“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” -1 Corinthians 2:9
So, get to know your Creator. He has made everything, yet He longs to know us, mere human beings. Have a conversation with Him. He is approachable, kind, slow to anger, and full of mercy and most of all He loves you with an unconditional love. ∞
