Let’s Make a Stand

You may already know by now that I like to watch stuff on YouTube. I recently stumbled on a video called Decoding The Book of Revelation. And I was like… Hmm, interesting! Revelation is one of my favourite books in the Bible.

After watching it I was thinking, geez the Christians in the early days were so bold and brave; they wouldn’t deny Jesus even when they were facing death. Would I be able to stand firm if my faith in Christ is being tested? The monkeys in my brains jumped frantically before I nodded my head.

Jesus said this:
“I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other! But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth!”
Revelation 3:15‭-‬16 NLT
Dear readers, let’s make a stand today whether hot or cold. I personally think that I don’t have anything to lose. For I’d rather spend my life with God in heaven than the eternity in hell! Jesus was having you and me in His mind when he was tortured and then crucified on the Cross. He bored all our sins and shame because He loved us so much. Yes, that was fierce. Yes, that was bold and brave. He chose to be with us, now it is time to choose Him.
I’ve made up my mind. ❤

Love Your Neighbour

Neighbours

I’ve been pondering…

Jesus said that we must love God with all our heart, our soul and our mind, and also love others as ourselves. These are the greatest commandments for everything flows out of love.

To me, the first part is very easy to do because I know that God loves me and He is so good etc. It is the second part that I’ve been pondering about: loving my neighbour(s) as myself.

What if I:
● Self harm?
● Always think low of myself?
● Talk bad to myself?
● Don’t respect myself?
● Don’t take care of myself?
● Don’t accept myself?
● Don’t forgive myself?

Then loving others would be minimal. I think loving others is a reflection of loving myself. So if I am like what I have mentioned above, then I know I have some works to do.

No Worries

I woke up with this verse of the day:
Matthew 6:34 NLT
“So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.”

As a woman, I admit that I worry a lot; I try to make connections from A to Z. Like last night I went to bed thinking about what to do the next day. From planning my schedule lead to thinking about what to do during the week and what to wear for my special weekend.

Yes, I have read this passage before and I sometimes forget. But it is nice to have a good reminder.
