Lately, I’ve been telling people to pray that I may and will love the Lord with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength. The Lord has made me realize that there are many things hidden under the rug, many issues to be uncovered and dealt with. I seem to miss the days of "spiritual high." Instances wherein I was more often than not, ready to face the fallen world.
Maybe I’m trying to do things on my own. I admit that I am frail. The warrior is indeed a child. I think that sometimes, I just go to the battlefield with only my helmet. I’ve been lacking discipline in most, if not all areas of life. Or maybe I’m just sick and tired of inconsistency with respect to time.
"Ang buhay ay parang gulong, minsan, nasa taas ka, minsan, nasa baba." True enough, but it seems confusing when the wheel rotates too fast. It makes you dizzy. It’s irritating to think you’ve solved your problem only to find out that you’ve just scratched the surface, and there is another layer behind it.
As for me, there is only one solution: Continue to trust in the Lord to give you wisdom and perseverance until all the layers has been scratched. Suit up, pick up your sword, get the biggest shield you could find, and endure till the end.
I’m glad my hope is in Christ, and I know that he will be faithful, until that day that I come to Him face to face, and share in His glory.
"Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts."
