“You’ve already failed people so many times that they judge you for it. Some even walked out of your life after all that you were unable to do. God, on the other hand, is different. No matter how many times you disobey and fail Him, He will never leave you, forsake you, nor stop loving you. In His eyes, you are still beloved and precious.”
Dyal - Can you believe these words are from a 16 year old Malaysian girl? Can you see how much hope God’s word can fill you with?
It is not for your to condemn your soul. God has blessed us with a lot. You have blessed me a lot. I still remember and will remind you of that ‘Boommmm’ post. You are simply blinded by seeing your (possible) reality around you.
And you have no clue who all you bless as they read what you have to offer. On this site is just one of the things. So when I read ‘useless soul’ - mujhe bura lagta hai.
I don’t know what the hammer signifies… Maybe the law (commandments) in which all humans do fail.
Maybe this image portrays that Jesus will uphold us even with our failings. (Unworthiness). After all - when He dies on the cross, He fulfilled *all* the requirements of the law as prescribed by His Father for all humanity - for all eternity.
Our part in this equation is to believe in what He did on the cross and obey what He told us to.
I am trying to do some readings on what all was actually fulfilled on the cross. It is actually fascinating… Very fascinating on what happened on the cross.
But I never paid attention to Him for years and years. Until the last two years. Till a lot of my life was a near mess.
Addiction. Alcohol. Bad workload, bad supervisor at work. Slogging my butt off and not getting promoted. Career going nowhere.
Till I prayed to the Holy Spirit. And as a ‘protestant’, we usually pray to Jesus. The Holy Spirit is not one we pay much attention to. And even at that time I didn’t really know Him. But I prayed to be delivered from p0rn and alcohol. But prayed more for deliverance from p0rn.
I was sick and tired of myself and how low I was sinking. Every weekend was a p0rn cd, beer. This was two years ago. And I got sick of myself. And I prayed to the Holy Spirit (thanks to a hindu friend who gave me a book, which had Holy Spirit references). She still believes that ‘God’ is not a he, it is a ‘universal energy’ and ‘The One’ and other such new age concepts that seem very very comforting, but are not the truth about God.
Anything that removes the reality of God as a person Who is there for us - and replaces it by some de-personalized ‘universal energy’ ‘vibrations’ ‘law of attraction’ is basically a doctrine that is removing God from the equation.
That is why you must be very very careful about what you let in your mind - particularly about God and ’spirituality’.
