John 15:11 I have told you these things so that My joy may be in you and your joy may be complete.
Most of the times when I look at the things that are happening around me, I always feel that the rule of life is "Accept or you get destroyed". It sometimes gets so hard and painful to accept the things that are happening around, I know I cannot fight it, and there is no reason to fight it as well. I know I will get sick and sinful, when I am going to do anything that is against the will of God. God will remove His Spirit and His presence from me. And I will never want to be without Him. So no matter what He does, I am okay and I accept. I know it so well that what ever God has planned for me is good and I am going to be fine, but still it hurts as I go through the transformation, like a caterpillar building the cacoon, and going through the transformation to break away from the cacoon and turning into a butterfly. It is like the Gold or Silver in the hot furnace, getting purified. It is going to be tough, but the end result is going to be perfect, but it is so painful to go through the situations. And I dont want to give up, because I want to be who God has created me to be, I want to accept the trials that come in my life, so that I can be perfect.
"So your JOY may be complete" -- Beautiful words, where Jesus Christ wants me to have Joy. It is not just Joy but complete JOY. When I look at these words I look at Him, who is the "Complete JOY" to me. But at the sametime, when He tells me to do things that are so difficult for me to do, but I know He gives me the strength to do, but still it helps me to get closer to Him and remain in His love for ever, by keeping His commandments. I know, submitting to Him feels so good, but it is hard to accept the CROSS which is heavy to carry with own own strength. I dont know how am I going to walk the big mountain to be crucified.
