Don’t give up!

No matter how little you are, no matter how tired, you mustn’t give up. For, I repeat, no misfortune means anything. Nothing is lost as long as faith is established, the soul doesn’t surrender, and you raise your head again! God forbid that you be sad! Don’t be afraid! It’s true, one’s thought should be in hell and in hell only (from Saint Silouan). But hope should be with God without ceasing, thinking that He greatly loves us…. God is more intimate with us than we are! When you think about this, you fill yourself with hope. But, our deeds, no matter how amazingly good, can’t save us. They can’t erase anything. And, no doubt, we’re sinners, but with hope. Hope – this is it!

If today, Christmas, is going to be a struggle, whether it’s difficult relatives, loneliness, anxiety, depression, eating disorder, arguments, and so on, remember this: you are loved, you are cherished, you are adored, by the Father. His Son was born today and the same love He has for His child, He has for you too. May you all be blessed today. 

No matter how dark or how hard things are right now, when you surrender all to Christ, and trust in God wholeheartedly. Know this, that God is going to change this situation around for His Glory and your good. Don’t worry about it. God is in control, and taking care of it. God bless you.

Lord, here I am down on my knees, surrendering all I have, desperate for you. With my arms stretched wide, I know You hear me as I cry. So will You speak to me now? Yes, I surrender it all. I want to know you more. 

Like a rushing wind, Jesus breathe within me. Lord will You have Your way in me? Lord, have Your way in me.

He loves you with an everlasting love (Jer 31:3). Because of Jesus, we have our happily-ever-after. 

Only because Love came down to rescue me; Love came down to set me free.

“Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth.” John 8:1

Jesus could not pass by a blind man. When there’s a need, He cannot pass you by. Even if you don’t see your need.

I remember the day after I tried to take my life. Try as I might, I could not die. That morning I went to the bathroom and sat on the toilet bowl; dazed, hopeless, and unmoved. I was thinking of other ways out–the knife? the window? the car? God was the last thing on my mind. Then suddenly a voice came over me and spoke, “Whatever it is, I am with you." 

Jesus could not pass me by. I didn’t even think of asking for His help, but He came. Beloved, we serve a faithful God who will not walk pass us without changing, healing, and touching us!

Jesus is the one who you shall call for deliverance. 

Not a priest, not a pastor, not your parents, not your friends. 

Jesus! 

God doesn’t call the qualified. He qualifies the called - Max Lucado

Peter was a fisherman. David was a teenager. Paul was a persecutor. Are you a sinner? Are you broken? Are you a drifter? None matters. 

We are not qualified by the world’s standards. It is God who qualifies us.

Jesus only has one question for you: Will you follow Me?
