2Corinthians 12:10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

The Sassy Girl: Submitting to God

This year, the sassy girl has learnt that submission to God is not a one day affair— but a daily yielding of self to the Potter.

She has learnt that yesterday’s obedience cannot cater for today’s failure to obey. Everyday calls for its own obedience to the Father.

Lord, I am willing: to follow and obey You. And everyday, I know that I will be willing. But I also know that my flesh will never be willing.

Yet I know for certain, that my spirit is truly willing.

My prayer this day Lord is that You bring out a daily willingness and obedience to You in my life because only You can.

I am willing…
To receive what You give me,
To lack what You keep from me,
To relinquish what You take from me,
To surrender what You claim from me,
To suffer what You ordain for me,
To do what You command of me,
To wait until You say to me, ‘Go’.

Philipians 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.

Only, remind me that Your presence will always be with me whithersoever I will go.

Amen.

Matthew 6:31 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Okay… Let’s just be honest, whenever most people hear anything about religion, their first reaction and instinct is probably to cringe or brush off the whole matter entirely.

Why? Most likely because it is a subject that is associated with extreme cases of fanaticism, it brings about a lot of conflicts and controversies, and even offends easily.

Religion is famously known for: manipulation, stagnation, repression, ignorance, bigotry and is too often a threat to liberty. And rightly so. I do agree. With that said, I recommend you to read two of my posts as well as encourage you to do a personal, extensive, and honest research on your own regarding this matter. Why?

As intellectuals (critical thinkers), I believe we owe it to ourselves to interrogate, examine, and ask hard questions regarding matters touching on faith rather than choosing to ignore them or even worse— follow blind faith. Click here for the first post.

Who speaks the truth with regards to a genuine, sincere and true relationship with God? Is it Buddha? Muhammad? Jesus? Zoroaster? Confucius? Joseph Smith? Guru Nanak? Krishna? Among others? Find out on this second post:

Why Jesus Stands Out

My heart overflows with a goodly matter; I speak the things which I have made touching the king: My tongue is the pen of a ready writer. Psalms 45:1
