Confidence


"In Him and through faith in Him we may approach God with freedom and confidence." (Ephesians 3:12)

What is confidence?
There are several meanings for it, but I will name two.
One, it's the feeling or belief that one can rely on someone; firm trust.
Two, it's the state of feeling certain about the truth of something. (info)

Let's discuss these two meanings.

The first one, relying on someone.
Do you have that feeling or belief that you can rely on someone?
I'm sure we all do. It may be a good friend or a family member. However, there is Someone we not just can rely on, but also should rely on, and that is Jesus. Jesus is the One whom you can and should have confidence in, so relying on Him is very important.
After all, He is the Creator of the world and the Way, the Truth, and the Life!



The second one, having the feeling of the truth about something.
Have you ever thought of something that you were positive would happen?
Sure you have. You may know things will always change or you may that something important is happening somewhere in the world. There is one thing that you cannot predict: the future.
Believe me, weathers warnings can sometimes be wrong. Only God can predict the future, but He can do more than predict the future, He is in control of the future and is also in the future, waiting for you. I mean, He is everywhere! The past, present, and future.

Remember to have confidence in God, our Heavenly Father. He is omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient, so He knows how to take care of you.

God bless your week!
Your brother in Christ,
Michael.

My Life Unbalanced

I am going to share another poem that I wrote last month.

My Life Unbalanced

My life unbalanced,
falling from the heavens into the grave.
I’m lost in the darkness,
trying to find the light, but am only going farther from it.
My words,
seemingly useless as I cry out to God.
I am a tree with little roots,
about to be carried away in the wind.
I don’t know what to do.
My life balanced,
rising to the heavens away from the grave.
I’m praising God,
for leading me back to the light.
My words,
heard in heaven and answered.
I am a tree with deep and strong roots,
because God has not forsaken me.
I now know what to do, praise be to God!

I hope you like it.

Your brother in Christ,
Michael

I Am Ashamed

Today, I am going to share a poem that I wrote.

I Am Ashamed
I am ashamed of myself, because I don’t run.
I am guilty, because I have sinned against God.
I am lost in the dark, because I went to it.
I am in great distress, because I placed a heavy burden on my shoulders.
My God, my God, why have I forsaken thee?
Why am I so far from You, so far from the words of Your joy?
O my God, You answer me by day, but I continue to cry out to You, by night You protect me, but I continue to doubt.*
Yet here I am,
I am brokenhearted, but “He heals the brokenhearted.” (Psalms 147:3a)
I am wounded, but “He binds up our wounds.” (Psalms 147:3b)
I am imperfect, “for all have sinned.” (Romans 3:23)
Praise the God of Israel for His great love!
Sing a song of praise you weary sinners!
Shout for joy you depressed!
Follow His voice you lost sheep.
For He overcame the world.

I hope you like it.

*The second verse is suppose to be based on Psalms 22:1-2.

The Return

"Whatever you do, whether in word or in deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him." (Colossians 3:17)

Hello, followers.

It has been a tough and fun 2018.

I went to camps in January and March, I wrote a lot in my novel, talked with friends, and much other things.

However, along with that, I have been ignoring Obey God, Reach Others, I closed it and didn't really want to see it again. Ever since the end of 2017, blogging wasn't really of my interest. 
I thought I couldn't write fiction and non-fiction at the same time.
I thought blogging wasn't worth my time and taking away my time from writing my novel.
I forgot about OGRO since then until a friend of mine reminded me about OGRO by questioning why it's closed. 

That's when my blogging spirit revived. 
I feel like I can write fiction and non-fiction at the same time again.
I feel like blogging can still be worth my time and I can squeeze it in my time while writing my novel.
I want to remind you all that you should not give up the dreams God gives you, even if you feel like it's not worth your time. 

I am looking forward to keep blogging and writing for the glory of God by Obeying Him and Reaching Others with my writing!
I am also looking forward to pray for wisdom and motivation as I continue writing and blogging.

Your brother in Christ,
Michael
