As I was travelling back from work, I was recollecting how I used to feel when I did not know Jesus. It used to be a disconnected life, lacking its purpose, without any meaning, with a painful heart, full of burden. Looking around the land and people around me, thought what is the use of these being around me, if I cannot connect my being with them. It is like being in an Island, not connected to anyone.
But life in Jesus is so different, through His spirit and Love,
1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
Life is connected to God and His people, through the Church, the fellowships, praise and worship, word of God, books and many other ways. Life is no longer alone, I am not the only one travelling this path, and there are multitudes of people who have been travelling the same path of the Lord throughout the History of mankind. There are many who have been through similar struggles and have shown us the path of victory and Joy.
1 Corinthians 6:17 But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit.
Life has a purpose, to understand and glorify the Lord. I don't need anything more than my own weaknesses to see His Glory revealed to me in my daily life. To be someone who serves the Lord, who is attentive of His commands and completes them every day for the Glory of the Lord. To be an instrument, through which, His love is manifested to other's life. To be a messenger, of God's love to the world.
Philippians 2: 13 for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.
Life has a meaning for its existence, to be united with the Lord on His Day. Live every day as a new creation, to be renewed and strengthened in the promises and love of God. As the flesh grows weak in the earth, the Spirit grows strong in the Lord. To, die in the flesh and be alive in the Spirit of the Lord.
Ephesians 4:4-6 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
Life with a Heart filled with Love, Faith and Hope. It cares for others, and is Faithful to the Lord and Believes in the word of the Lord. It builds its trust and hope in the Lord, with Christ as its foundation.
1 Corinthians 7:22 For the one who was a slave when called to faith in the Lord is the Lord's freed person; similarly, the one who was free when called is Christ's slave.
Come Spirit unite me to the Lord, when I am disconnected.
Come Spirit enlighten me with the wisdom of God, when I lack the meaning.
Come Spirit Guide me with His Work, when I lack the purpose.
Come Spirit Heal me when I am Hurt.
Come spirit strengthen me when I am weak.
Come Spirit free me when I am burdened.
