Happy second Sunday of the year. Today was the first church service I attended since the beginning of the year. I went to church by 9 am only to be told that service will begin by 10:30 am. I had to go back to hostel to take a nap while waiting patiently for the time of service.
When it was 10:20 am I left my hostel since the chapel is just a stone throw. When I arrived the service just got started. I really enjoyed today's service and I was happy to be in the presence of the Lord once again.
Have you ever been disappointed when you put your trust in man only to have it shattered? This happens to many people who put their trust in the wrong things, things that are not worthy of our trust
The best things to do in life is to trust in God and do good. Trust in God even when everyone is against you, trust in God when it looks like you are about to drown, trust in God; that he will give you a helping hand. We all make mistakes, life is not perfect but if we strive to achieve what is right we will be given the grace of God
Never accept the wrong that people try to lead you into. Stay productive and be the best person you are, if you are a man then be the best man you can be, don't let anyone define who you are and what got you there. Never let any one tell you that will not amount to anything,because all men are created equal and are blessed by God with a purpose.
There are many struggles in life. To pull through these struggles there must be a number of tools that one must be armed with to succeed. One of these tools is righteousness.
Being a righteous person, is just as important as leading a righteous life. There are many evildoers who will try to lead you astray, but there are only few people who strive to do good and not follow the evildoers. In our daily chores and work life we need to do what is rights.
Righteousness is best understood as a state of being. It is a constant awareness of what is real and what is not, what is true and what is false, what is right and wrong, an awareness that leads to action.
Righteousness is not necessarily about what you do, but what you are. Do you have righteous thoughts, speak righteous words and carry out righteous actions? You will come across people who try to belittle your righteousness. They may say that you are too sensitive, overly conscience or even a liar or hypocrite. But these words can never undermine the righteousness within you. These words can never change the truth about you. Some people will try to make it seem as if righteousness is a burden, but it is not. Righteousness is your strength. Let this energy be felt by all around you.
But let us remember that righteousness and full salvation can never be found in the shadows of our hard work. It can only found in the light of Christ's goodness and mercy.
We are all here on our own spiritual journey, here on earth to discover who we are and what we are here for. When you wake up every day and take a breath, give thanks to God. That is one of the most important things you can do.
Only God can give us the right answers to our problems. We should put full trust in God because He is never late and He will always be there for us.
