All seemed so well. Walking on the right path. But when the storm came in, you ignored the shelter, and fell off track. You fell on a different road, a path all alone. A path of hurt and fear. Pain from yesterday, the fear of what tomorrow brings.
Ignoring the fading flame. So afraid for love to come into your heart again, when His love is the only thing you need, just come back to Jesus. Have peace and courage, and remember the one true God. Trust in Him even when you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. Know that storms come, and storms go. Knowing that we are too weak to stand on our own. Know that peace comes when you give your life to Him, no matter what mountains you face tomorrow.
Being saved doesn’t mean life is easy. It’s easy to praise God when all is well. But when the storms come in, we tend to forget. Blinded by the lightning, deaf by the thunder. How strong is our faith in Christ? Can I say that I’ve praised God in the storm, that I’ve trusted Him even when all seems lost? Our light is truly tested when we face the dark.
To set your eyes on God, not on the storm. I must remember that God’s ways are higher than mine. How could I possibly question perfection? “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
There the girl stands open heart, with open doors. Full of life with the world that’s always wanting more. The crowds lure by, without blinking an eye, leaving her feeling cold. Still she carries a smile, speaking words of kindness, acting like everything is well. But He can see when the light starts to fade. At the end of the day, when the laugh, when the smile goes away. So let Jesus be your first love.
In the coldest of life, His love will keep you warm. In the darkest of times, His light will shine a path. And when the day comes, may that gentleman of God be your love. For a man of God will guard a woman’s heart. He holds on to the pure promise. He wants to know her by heart, by soul. He makes sure that God is her first love, he strives to keep her candle burning for Christ. He doesn’t ask her to give away her heart to him, but to the Creator that blessed him. A man of God knows that if he can’t put God before him, then he will only struggle to put her before him. He serves the Lord and his family first.
True love is God’s plan for love. Don’t rush into it, for love is patient; never settle for less. For the greatest works you’ll do won’t be the romantics dinners, or the trips on the beach, but the wonders you did together to serve the King. How beautiful it will be, to look back and see a young couple in love, on fire for God. For a relationship in love with Christ keeps together a two into one flesh.
“Wait on the Lord;
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the Lord!”
My first post here. From May, 15, 2016.
Life is beautiful. It’s a gift just to live. Life means so much. There’s so many people, and young people of course, that miss the meaning of life. What is joy, exactly? What is the meaning?
There’s many young people who were never told that they have a purpose. There’s many that were told that this is what they are worth. Giving into the lies. Never let the pain, or the mistakes of the past define who you are. Joy should never be turning to the bottle, where forgetting who you are is what brings you happiness.
Don’t let the world tell you who you are. Part of believing is dreaming. The desires of the world will consume you. And in the end, looking back, can you say it was all worth it? What does it do for me now? What did it do for my loved ones?
What person did I portray in their lives, in those in need, to the lost? If I was so consumed with what benefited me, how could I have shined a light? Did I really care for my them? Did I light any torches for Christ? Was the entertainment of the world worth it? What was my long accomplishment?
Surely the path of life is narrow. And it’s easy to fall off track. But in the sands of the desert there will be footprints to follow, in the dark wilderness there will be a light to see.
To live is a beautiful thing. You are God’s beautiful creation. Life goes by fast, some faster than others. The key is how you live it. Will you spend it serving the world, or serving the Lord? Life is too precious to live on the fence.
“Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.”
