I Press On Hoping

The Rowdy Hobbit

Doing some random reading of the New Testament tonight and stumbling on Philippians, I’ve realized how Catholic St. Paul truly is. Consider verses seven thru fourteen in the third chapter:

But the things that were gain to me, these, for the sake of Christ, I have counted loss. Nay more, I count everything loss because of the excelling knowledge of Jesus Christ my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things, and I count them as dung that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a justice of my own, which is from the Law, but that which is from faith in Christ, the justice of God based upon faith; so that I may know him and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of his sufferings: become like him in death, in the hope that somehow I may attain…

The One And Only Reason God Calls A Person ” Home ” First

Some Little Things About Me

A few days ago a friend posted a status on her Facebook timeline says, ” Good bye my good friend. God loves you more, He called you first “, to express her deep condolence. To be frank, I seriously felt annoyed when I read it because it seems not right in my opinion. As if God loves more some people than the other people. I think this is really degrading. Not the human, but God’s love.

I know God has His prerogative royal, He can choose whoever He wants to love or bless. And no one has the right to object. But still the parameter to measure God’s love is not who died first or live longer. Then what about those grandpas and grandmas who are still alive until today ?! Does that mean God not or less love them ?!

I don’t think so ! If so, we who are…

Morning Direction From Scripture 9-14-17

Lillie-Put

100_5195

Bless our God, O peoples;
    let the sound of his praise be heard,
who has kept our soul among the living
    and has not let our feet slip.
10 For you, O God, have tested us;
    you have tried us as silver is tried.
11 You brought us into the net;
    you laid a crushing burden on our backs;
12 you let men ride over our heads;
    we went through fire and through water;
yet you have brought us out to a place of abundance. Psalm 66:8-12

Do you think you and God have the same definition of abundance? If not how do the two views differ?

Do you have an upholder?

I love the Psalms

Reading:                                      Psalm 37

(Verses 12-17)
The wicked plot against the righteous
and gnash their teeth at them;
but the L
ORD laughs at the wicked,
for he knows their day is coming.
The wicked draw the sword
and bend the bow
to bring down the poor and needy,
to slay those whose ways are upright.
But their swords will pierce their own hearts,
and their bows will be broken.
Better the little that the righteous have
than the wealth of many wicked;
for the power of the wicked will be broken,
but the L
ORD upholds the righteous (NIV).

Reflection
As stated in my first post on Psalm 37, this psalm is a stark night and day comparison of the life of the evil person with the life of the individual who…
