Meekness and majesty!

 Meekness and majesty



 I remember when I was a child and  lived in a farm, my feet was alwasy dirty. Like others children do, I play in the ground, walked in the grass and just loved being barefoot. But I really did not like having my feet dirty. There was a creek nearby where I lived and I used  to wash my feet there. I loved to be there and   feels the fresh cold water running through my feet. 
I think that no one really likes playing the dirt in the long run and be filthy. We all like the feeling of being clean. Washing our own feet is one thing, but washing other's feet is another thing and I don't think it is the kind of task that we normally do for others. And it is not also  the other way around. I don't like others to wash the dirt out of my feet either. How about you?



I read in John 13:1-17 about Jesus way of showing meekness by washing His disciples feet. Among the disciples was Judas whom He knows gonna betrayed Him, but still He washed His feet. What an amazing act of meekness. He the Majestic One washed the dirty feets of the His disciples!  Do you think we can do that?


Prayer:
 Dear Jesus, I know that we can never do all the good things that You did, but thank You for being an example for us to follow. 
Help us everyday to serve others in every little ways we can.

 Not to serve evil, but conquer evil with love and humility. I pray that we will remain humble no matter what. It is not we, but You be seen in us.




Leaving you this words I felt God whispered to me in one my difficult moments. Maybe it is for you too.


Word from God:

Arise and go forward...

There will be a desert...detour...storm to battle....but keep going, trusting, worshipping. Strength will be given along the journey. 
Be guided by my words. You might not understand everything, but in due time, answers will come. Don't give up when persecution comes. Remember, a fruitful tree get stoned. But it sustains the hunger of those who eat and a haven for those who need rest. 
Thank You Father!

Updates!



Hi everyone! I haven't posted anything in the last few days because I have been sick...not  a serious one and had been busy with all the the things that should be done.
Well, anyway, just some updates from me, just in case someone misses me out there:)
Today, after work, I baked banana muffins to be served to the elderly when we visit them on Sunday to share God's words and love to them 

Not so clear picture from my phone

I do manage to make three pairs of potholders





The weather this week changed all the time.
Snowday

No snow 

Or else I am busy packing because next Friday, I am going to the Philippines to visit my family there. So, I am excited:)
 Well, after all the updates from me, hope to hear from you too!

Leaving you words to ponder at the end of this post. 

Is there anyone who wants to suffer? To be lonely and live and fear?
 How about losing everything? 
I believe that no one wants their hearts to be ripped.
 Shred to pieces? 
Not to mention to be sick and to die.
 We sometimes get hurt and hurt others as well. 
But whether we want it or not...it happens.
 So the best thing we can do is be there for others,
 as we like others to be there for us. Forgive and just love all year round.

Pattern and power



Pattern and power..
Whom do we follow?
 Are we following Jesus footsteps? 


How about feeling like giving up because no matter what we do, we can't do it perfectly or wholeheartedly?


 Too much disturbances and temptations in life. 


We see sufferings everywhere and wonder where God is? Problems never cease to come?



In addition, we ought to live by these words:
"I have been crucified with Christ, it is no longer I who lives, but Christ live in me. Gal. 2:20



Seems impossible for us to do so. Isn't it?

We have to keep our selfie dead everyday and let Christ be alive in us.

But believe it or not...it is the best thing we could ever do in every aspect of our lives. 


There is freedom in it and all the burdens be lifted up from our shoulders.



Someone quoted: 
Yes, Christ is our pattern, but thank God, He is more. He is also our power.

- Oh to be like Thee, blessed Redeemer!
This is my constant longing and prayer;
Gladly I will forfeit all of earth's treasures,
Jesus, Thy perfect likeness to wear. - Crisholm

Essence in God's kingdom



Prayer for you and me:

Dear God,
 let our lives be an essence for Your kingdom.
 Let us us bow down to Your throne and worship You with every bit of our hearts. 
Let us rejoice because we found You as the Savior of our souls. 
There is none like You Lord, the Rock of all ages. 
All knowledge comes from You.
Thank You because You girded us with strength when we stumble.
 You lend a helping hand so that we can remain standing during our battles in life.
 You provides wisdom to us who ask in every details of our lives.
Praise be Thy Holy name

JOY
