A Loud Cry

The land of fragrance was in a flurry of activity. The loud voices of men filled the air as I sat down and waited in anticipation. In awe, I listened with rapt attention, absorbing all that was said about Him. They could not stop talking. Excitement filled their voices. Could this be? Was He truly passing by? I asked myself.

The stories the men told of Him were extraordinary. I have heard the stories and many more before. But as they spoke today, I believed. Sighing heavily I reminisced in anguish. This is my only chance. I cannot afford to miss this opportunity. I am tired of living this way; tired of living each day at the mercy of others. With great determination, I continued sitting down, waiting patiently for His arrival.

I could hear the crowd around me. The heavy footsteps of men walking, the beautiful sounds of children running, the echoes from the dancing feet of women all joined to create a rhythm that made my soul want to dance . A smile crept on my lips. Hope at last. He was coming.

By the road I waited. Not in reproachful misery but in joyful anticipation. The sounds changed. The shouts became louder, the singing more joyful and the laughter more contagious. At that moment all I wanted was to catch His attention as He passed by.

With the scores of people it seemed impossible. What could I do to make Him notice?

Faith the Substance of…

Hello everyone, I just want to scribble down more inspirational quotes I have read this month.

It’s was becoming difficult for a while to believe in the things I was hoping for . I  needed to take a deep breath, listen, read and be inspired by the Holy Spirit through the scriptures and the words of men that I should not to lose faith. For as a believer we walk by faith and not by sight. 2Corinthians 5:7

I have retraced my steps and I am walking on the path of faith.

Am I succeeding? Yes I believe so.

For if I was not succeeding, I will not be writing this.

So I want to share some of the scripture and words that helped me.

Maybe someone out there is going through what I went through. Doubting themselves and losing faith because the things they desired, prayed and hoped for still have not materialized.

These are very simple but powerful words that have motivated me and helped “ginger” my faith in God.

Hebrews 11:1 (KJV)
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

“Faith is what will carry you beyond the garment of human understanding.”

“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”

-Martin Luther King, Jr

“God didn’t promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow or sun without rain but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears and light for the way. If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.”

-Unknown

“I don’t pray for God to take my problems away, I pray only for God to give me the strength to go through them.”
– Jose Lozano

Don’t lose faith. God is on His throne and He is working everything out for your good.

PS.

I know I said at the beginning  that I wanted to scribble some inspirational quotes. Ooops! Sorry! I got carried away…….(winks)

Two weeks later, Wow!

I never would have thought that it would take me close to two weeks to post on my blog. Now i understand what the word Procrastination is all about. Who would have imagined? ‘I will work on it tomorrow’, I kept on saying to myself. One, Two, Three days passed and I still did not do anything.

Finally, after two weeks I am writing my second post on this blog.. Who would have thought.. I do intend to keep it up. No more procrastination  no more ‘i will do it tomorrow’.I have stopped speaking that language. (winks)

Who am i kidding? I can only guarantee that I will try my best. But  as a christian i have come to realize that I draw strength from the power of the word of God, and so from now on, each day until i conquer this thing called ‘procrastination’ i will post a biblical verse.Just so i know that i can overcome it and also to remind myself that it really is not a good habit to cultivate.

So here is my biblical verse for this first day: “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men” (Colossians 3:23).

Remain blessed.
