What’s the point you say?
Let me tell you what the point is!!! The point is that you may have something great and wonderful I store for you in the future. What the point is … is that you have a purpose in life. LIFE not death, not giving up, but LIFE!!
Jesus says in John 8:12 “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will NEVER walk in darkness but will have the light of life.”
If you only believed in Jesus, trusted him to take away all your fears, your pain, your sorrows, your hurts and all of the unknown tomorrows, for thru Jesus you will be saved, if you only believe.
You have a wonderful story to share. One that ends in peace and love and harmony. Tell your story. Share it to the world. Forget what others say about you. They didn’t walk in your shoes. They didn’t live your life. They don’t have your feelings. So why give them your power. Your power is yours to keep! Only you should be able to decide HOW you want to feel, WHERE you should live/work, HOW to react or act to situations, sayings, etc.
When you give up, when you give in, when you allow others to control how you feel, how you act, YOU ARE GIVING THEM YOUR POWER! WHY? Why would you want them to control you that way? Haven’t you been through enough?
Keep fighting! Proverbs 3:5-6 says: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”
TAKE BACK YOUR POWER! Feel how YOU WANT to feel. ACT/REACT how you want to do so. (within reason of course, I’m not saying hurt others—NO WAY!) What I’m saying is in order to be happy, you must be happy starting from within. What better way to be happy than with God and HIS Son, Jesus Christ?
James 1:2-4 says: “My brothers (and sisters I’m adding that part), count it all joy when you fall into divers temptations; knowing this, that the trying of your faith works patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that you may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.”
Do you know what this means? It means that with all the trials you encounter, all the hate coming your way means you have something! You are NOT a nobody! YOU ARE A SOMEBODY! Rejoice in the pure joy of knowing that this is just a test. In order to pass this test we must first Trust fully in God and his son, Jesus Christ.
The verse says we can do this because, we know that the testing of our faith produces and grows our perseverance, patience, and endurance. And we should do this so that we may be perfectly and fully developed, mature, and complete; lacking in and wanting nothing. Fully developed faith equals lacking in and wanting nothing. The way to get to that point, is by practicing patience.
Jeremiah 29:11 says: For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
So the next time someone sends you a nasty message, a hateful word or two, just remember…. GOD LOVES YOU!
He loves us so much that He sent his son to die for us. John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
So please, don’t give up, don’t lose hope, Don’t quit! FIGHT!! FIGHT BACK the best way you can. LIVE! LAUGH! LOVE!
