He is Mighty to Save

My favorite song!
It reminds me who my Jesus is and who I am in Him.
Am I perfect? No, but as I am He loves and sustains me!

For His name and glory, I commit all of my life for His sake.

Salt & Light

Time flies.
It had been very difficult to get through the past 3 weeks.
Work was overwhelming and now I am trying all I can to rest before the next wave hits.

I am very concerned because it seems like the world is trying to steal me away from God. As if my life is involving only with “intelligent” conversation, criticism, competitiveness, and edginess. I am not sure how long I could be in this environment. As much as I like what I do, I am pressed from all sides. The world demands me to be one of them and I will not. The two forces collide quite frequently and sometimes drive me up the wall and I am mad with myself.

Jesus calls us to be Salt and Light in the world.
He calls us to be the First not the last; the head not the tail; the overcomer and more than a conqueror.

Is this a sort of Alzheimer? I most often forget about Christ’s expectation in me. By looking at my weaknesses and disposition, I wonder if I am what Jesus calls me to be or if I only deserve to live under the shadow of completeness and never achieve the wholeness. As I was venting my struggles to Him, He whispered quietly in my heart, said, you don’t need to try because you already are. It is very comforting for He knows and He understands.

Lord, I pray that You will set Your covenant all over me so that I can never depart from You. I pray that day and night, Your Holy Spirit will remind us of who we are in you. Do not let the world convince me otherwise.
