Break Time

So, this is going to be a sad post.

Next week, I am traveling to the US. And I will be there for a long while. I most likely won't be writing articles for Obey God, Reach Others until October.

If you're wondering, "Why don't you write articles while in the US?" My reply is that I just need a break and it's going to be very busy.

The thing is, while I'll be in the US, I don't know if I'll continue blogging again. I know, I did this before, but right now I don't know yet. But don't worry, when I get back home, I'll decide.

I wish you all well and hope to come back to writing on here soon!

God bless.

Satisfied


“If any of you want to walk My path, you’re going to have to deny yourself. You’ll have to take up your cross every day and follow Me.” (Luke 9:23 VOICE)
“In You alone, I’m satisfied.” (Satisfied by About A Mile)
I thought I have been satisfied with what I had, but I realized I wasn’t satisfied with God.
And since I wasn’t satisfied with God, I thought I would be satisfied with sin.
I was wrong.
At first it seemed satisfying, but then it soon started making me feel more empty.
I think this is everyone’s struggle, we want to be satisfied with something, but sometimes we don’t think of God to satisfied us.
The thing is, only God can satisfy the emptiness in your heart. Nothing on earth will satisfy us. Not our friends, not our things, not even our family. Let’s have God be the only thing to satisfy our emptiness.
God bless and satisfy your week!

Forgiveness: Do We Deserve It?


"Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you." (Colossians 3:13 NIV)

We all need forgiveness. Each and every one of us.

But, do we deserve it?
Do the people that hurt us deserve it?

To be honest, the answer to both of those questions is: No. We and the people that hurt us really don't deserve to be forgiven, but Jesus commands us to forgive ourselves and others. You're probably familiar to the verse, "Love your neighbor as yourself." (Leviticus 19:18 NIV) But are you also familiar with the verse, "Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you." (Matthew 5:44 NIV)

We should forgive as the Lord forgave us. Note that we should forgive, present tense, and the Lord forgave, past tense. Meaning? God already forgave us! Isn't that amazing?

"Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you." (Ephesians 4:32 NIV)

Notice again: Forgiving, present tense; forgave, past tense. We need to forgive as God as has already forgiven us.

Forgiveness in Greek means "to let go." (Info) So, let go of the grudge against the person that hurt you. As Mark 11:25 says, "And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive your sins."

God bless your week!
