Total surrender.

If you recall some of Jesus’s last words on the cross,
1. “My God, my God , why have you forsaken me?”
Mathew 27:46 & Mark 15:34

2. Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” Luke 23:34

3.”Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.” Luke 23:46

4.”I am thirsty.” John 19:28

5.”It is finished.” John John 19:30

—————————————————
Let’s reflect on the above scriptures.

1. Jesus knowing that the crucifixion was the last part of the journey in the plan of salvation, felt betrayed? Felt alone? Even when He is God (the Mystery of the Holy Trinity). Understand this, we will have our moments of weaknesses, even when we know God is with us, this journey is pre-planned. We will hit rock bottom sometimes, but it’s not the end, the pain could be excruciating & overwhelming. Don’t lose your faith.

2. He forgave everyone who betrayed him, who forsook him, who planned he’s execution. He forgave us even when we weren’t born, our sins against our Lord. He interceded for us in he’s last, such was/is his love for us.

3. The best lesson – total absolute surrender. The Lord of all surrendered to His Lordship- His Father, the Almighty.

4. Thirst for the life after – for the joining in celebration in Heaven, re-uniting with the Father.

5. Victory in the most tragic moment. He fulfilled the plan.

Stay close to the Lord. He makes all things beautiful.
You, life & your journey.

Praise Him in the storm.

Even when you feel He isn’t worthy, because sweet lil one, in your bitterness you can’t un-see how worthy he has indeed made you to have received all the blessings he’s already given you.

My Dearest you who are hurting, breaking & dying,

I know this might not really reach you. But with all my heart I pray God’s will for you, he’s mercy in your suffering, he’s comfort in your pain, he’s love in your darkness, he’s presence when you feel broken.

May He overpower all that you feel, all that you go through, all that you stand in agony of.

May He help you understand that life cannot be measured by the years you have lived or by the time you’ve been given to be prepared for the worst.

We all are mortals, death being the beautiful rebirth into meeting are higher selves (our souls – something un-perishable- a part of Him ) .

In your fear, Call out to him, welcome Him, Talk to Him. Because He not only listens, he’s present beside you, within you and he has he’s angels around you.

You are beautifully & wonderfully made. You are chosen. You belong to HIM. You are precious to HIM. He is worthy of our love even when we feel he’s not befriending us, He is always worthy of all Praises.
Hosannah in the highest.

I pray for you to have healing & peace & joy that penetrates through your pain and leaves you wanting Him more. Thirst only for Him, he redeems us.

Measure your life by the faith you have in him, by the blinded trust of having his hand at work in your life. Measure it by the blessings he’s endowed you with. Measure it with all the suffering & pain he’s let you endure, measure it with the strength he’s blessed you with. Measure it with praise in your heart even in the storms of your life.

Bless you.

Love,
Lea.

The climb is your breakthrough.

For David, Goliath was never a threat but an opportunity, to trust God, believe in himself & use the sling (that does not even guarantee victory) to triumph over him. Yet He believed he could do it, when all had failed.

What makes you think, your mountains & list of not going right, is a plan to fail you in life?
You need your head clear, belief high, faith strong and only then you can see victory even with not having the right ammunition for your battles.
First calm the inner storms, then face life.

For whatever it’s worth, don’t give in, never give up. You are privileged to face threats, for they are hidden opportunities. I pray you see how lucky you are when you face an opportunity to transform the petty to something pretty mindblowing.
Live a life of fulfillment, even when you lack it.
Revel in small things, enjoy the lil victories, look only for the good in the bad.

Nothing can make you more of you, but your situations, whether pleasing or not. And trust me, you are not, what you were yesterday, you shall not remain the same tomorrow, for today you’re just meant to be here, in your now. Don’t get crippled with a notion of who you are in a moment. Change is the key to better things, better life. And what’s more? When God is beside you, how can you ever fail?
Happy evolving!

P.s. because It’s been too long, I’ve not written a meaningful long caption. Just felt like it today.
Stay blest.

Climb with Jesus.

My dear friends,
Often in life soaring after a fall, you find yourself trapped again or falling again, and the fear & anxiety that crawls makes you feel like you don’t know how to control this change of tides.
That’s because you don’t control it.

God does.

Why do we go to HIM in our dire times of needs , but often take Him for granted in our peaceful time? Why often we fail to Praise Him, acknowledge Him ? Why to fit in with non believers we pretend to be loose on grounds of faith? Or to fit in with firm believers , we pretend we know Him the most?
And yet often the non believers ask us to pray to Him?

What is our faith lacking?

If you have read tons of books in your lifetime, have you read your BIBLE thoroughly? From the Old testament to the New?

It gives us a choice between life & death, good & evil, and advices us this :
Deuteronomy 30:19 CHOOSE LIFE.

When facing a battle and we expect defeat, it says :
Deuteronomy 31:6 BE DETERMINED AND CONFIDENT.

Deuteronomy 31:8 THE LORD HIMSELF WILL LEAD YOU & BE WITH YOU. HE WILL NOT FAIL YOU OR ABANDON YOU, SO DO NOT LOSE COURAGE OR BE AFRAID.

Exodus 33:14 THE LORD SAID , “I WILL GO WITH YOU AND I WILL GIVE YOU VICTORY.”

Victory is ours if He is our sheild.

Make His word your armour and not even the raving oceans can defeat you. Even whilst drowning you will have hope of being saved, you will know that HE IS WITH YOU.

Remember this my friend,
Numbers 18: 20 I, THE LORD, AM ALL YOU NEED.

Ecclesiastes 7:14 WHEN THINGS ARE GOING WELL FOR YOU, BE GLAD, AND WHEN TROUBLE COMES, JUST REMEMBER : GOD SENDS BOTH HAPPINESS AND TROUBLE , YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT.

There is simply no need to explain life and how meaningful it is, especially when Our Bible has all the answers.

Remember, those battles against God’s chosen people (Israel) were the WILL OF GOD. They had to learn to be faithful to HIM, they had to acknowledge THAT HE IS ALL WORTHY, ALL MIGHTY, EVER SO FAITHFUL, MERCIFUL & LOVING. THAT HE IS POSSESSIVE of His chosen, that He does NOT tolerate substitutes . That every battle against you is HIS CALL FOR YOU TO TURN TO HIM, GLORIFY HIM , HAVE FAITH IN HIM.

How countless are the substitutes in our lives when it comes to God?
Can we too learn to be open to HIM at all times?
He knows our deepest thoughts, our plans, everything that we do.

Proverbs 15:3 THE LORD SEES WHAT HAPPENS EVERYWHERE , HE IS WATCHING US, WHETHER WE DO GOOD OR EVIL.

Remember :

Ecclesiastes 3:11 HE HAS SET THE RIGHT TIME FOR EVERYTHING.

His will for us surpasses the plans we have for our life. Let’s go to Him & let him guide us through our climb.

Jeremiah 29 : 11-13 I ALONE KNOW THE PLANS I HAVE FOR YOU, PLANS TO BRING YOU PROSPERITY AND NOT DISASTER, PLANS TO BRING ABOUT THE FUTURE YOU HOPE FOR.

THEN YOU WILL CALL TO ME, YOU WILL COME AND PRAY TO ME , AND I WILL ANSWER YOU. YOU WILL SEEK ME AND YOU WILL FIND ME, BECAUSE YOU WILL SEEK ME WITH ALL YOUR HEART.

Stay blest all of you.

May Lord give you peace , courage & faith to embrace your climb and walk through it with HIM.

God forgives.

If you remember the incident where Jesus saves a woman from being stoned to death for her sin had caught light,
you should know God forgives , even those that feel unworthy.
And His mercy surpasses every judgement.
For everyone is a sinner and humanely prone to commit mistakes, except God who is alone without sin.
Big or small your sin/mistake will not be used against you if you repent/turn/learn.

While a crime is unforgivable, sin is not.
Know the difference.
Find it in you to forgive yourself & people when you find it extremely difficult.
Find it in you to accept your wrongs & take charge to better yourself.
Find it in you to believe in Him all the time.
For HE is not only good, but Amazing all the time.

Know that God’s time is always the Right time.

You are in the right time,
All the wrongs are the right things happening/happened to you,
The just and the unjust, liked or detested , everything, everything is happening as rightly decreed.
Fate is unwinding as it was perfectly planned,
Not you neither me can change the lessons that life willingly teaches us,
Are you open to learning ?

Are you at home with falling? Because every time you fall , at your disposal is an opportunity to rise above all, take a new route that leads you home, may be the path that kept throwing you off the cliff wasn’t gonna take you home, and thus it’s time for you search and discover what will take you to the place you’ll feel the most alive. And sometimes its not one place, but many, those many will harbor a different milestone in your journey of seeking purpose and fulfillment.

Take care my friend.

When Faith talks #1

Faith defines a huge part of my existence.
I don’t think I’d recognize me without Him and His abundant blessings.
Jesus is not only my friend, my King, my comforter, my healer, my help, my refuge, my hope, my faith, my courage, my victory, questions & answers… Jesus has come to mean everything to me.
No I don’t go to Him in adversities alone, I’m not that much of a hypocrite. I kinda talk to Him everyday. Prayer is a beautiful tool to seek His presence.
And honestly the way His word (bible) always answers me is amazing.
I am not that girl who would bury her Faith so as to fit in with a sassy group of people who probably mock it and still say they are believers. I know Jesus , and knowing Him just alil has told me that there is so much more to Him that I am simply unaware of.
It is so beautiful to see non believers, come to Churches and Chapels and sit in silence, sometimes praying , sometimes hoping, sometimes just blindly staring. I long to know what they feel, what they experience, what they come there for? For a photograph? For the archaeological structures? For some answers, for peace ? For miracles? Statues?
I don’t know. But what really makes me smile is that most often, when they walk out, they have a smile, they have this peace , a serenity unexplainable.
Sometimes we Christians are so ungrateful and blind to see and learn more about Jesus and How His ways are beyond earthly understandings.
I’m not a preacher. But I hope you’ll know how to cherish your bible, how to study it, and how to talk to Jesus, not only when you need Him (in adversaries) but need Him in all times.

I won’t be that person who will wish you on every feast , every saints day and all that, and I’m sorry if I haven’t reverted back to some who indeed wished me, while that might be alil lacking in my faith, I just somehow am keen to only focus on Him, everything related to Him is a feast that I love to celebrate, whether Christmas, Easter…
.

People with faith are not blind as people with none choose to think , For we simply choose to believe in something that you can’t bring yourself to believe in.
