There may be hundreds of people who are much, much better than me, but I know that I can still face the whole world with confidence, because God will use me in the midst of my weaknesses. In my shortcomings, He will be glorified. I am imperfect, but still, I am chosen. I am here to bring glory to His name.
“Even if it’s hard, I’ll let go, Abba. Even if I don’t know how, I’ll believe that Your promises will happen. Even if it won’t make sense to other people, I’ll still obey, Father, because I am not doing this for myself. I’m doing it for you. My obedience is not because who I am or how good I am, but I can obey because of who You are, and how You love me so much. You will take care of me. You will never leave me. I am undeserving, but You have chosen me. I know that You are the reason why I can do all these.”—godsradicaldaughter
“But the Lord stood at my side and gave me strength, so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed and all the Gentiles might hear it. And I was delivered from the lion’s mouth.”—2 Timothy 4: 17
If Jesus can't satisfy me, who else? What else? Only He can touch my heart, fill me with love, and be with me no matter what is the circumstance. Because of Him, I can let go of anything. When I think about His love, I forget about my regrets.
You have been messaging me anonymously for months now, and I haven’t replied to any of them. I’m sorry for that, but I am so blessed that you chose to give a portion of your heart to me.
I want you to know that Jesus will still love you, no matter what may be the circumstances are in your life. Keep on depending on Him, because He has awesome plans for you. You know I’m always praying for you. I am so certain that God will use you mightily, wherever you are.
And… it doesn’t matter how many people will come and go in your life. Just remember that God has a love story just for you. Just fix your eyes upon Jesus, and you will know at the right time what decision you have to make. I know that God knows whatever you’re going through right now. He’ll never let you fall. His love won’t ever fail you.
I love you, Malinali! I haven’t met you yet, but you’re so special to me. One day, God will cross our paths, and I’ll hug you as tight as I can. DON’T GIVE UP, BEST FRIEND! Amazing things are on their way towards you.
It doesn’t matter how confusing things are. Don’t dwell on them. Focus on the love of Jesus, and everything will fall at the right place.
You are loved, blessed and treasured, beautiful one!
The best thing that can happen to you on earth is to experience the love, grace and preferential treatment of God. He is always there, even when we don't see it. He is always working, even when we cannot feel it. His love has never once forgotten about us.
“Even in the midst of my self-centered thoughts, God still loves me. He still never let me go. He still helped me in my times of crises. He continues to pour out to me His love, until I realize that NO, everything that I am now is not my own doing. I am here— I reached this far— because of Him. He has been faithful, and He never stopped once, because His grace never depended on what I did. It was constant because His love for me was constant. Thank You, Father.”—godsradicaldaughter
