Do you know how important and special you are? You are important not because of what you have accomplished in life. You are important because God did not create anyone to be less special or less important. And because for God you are important, it is also important for Him to have a relationship with you.
Sometimes, we seek importance from other people and when we don’t feel that they value us, we get insecure and disappointed. We start doubting our value as a person. And that is not what God wants us to feel. He wants us to always feel secure and valued. And He alone can do that for us. To have a relationship with God is the best thing that could happen to you. He can be your Father, your Friend, your Healer, your Provider. He can be everything that no human person will ever be able to do for you.
I hope today, you will give God a chance in your life. He loves you and He wants the best for you.
Yesterday and today, I’ve been blessed with all the learning and teachings during the Leadership Conference at CCF. The theme of the conference is Make HIM Known. There is so much to take in that I could not even write everything about it. All I need to do is to go through the points again and put them into practice.
What amazed me the most on these two days are the scientific facts which proved that there is no such thing as randomness. Everything was created for a reason, for a purpose. It was designed but can’t be done by mere human. It can only be done by the only Creator, the Mastermind, and the greatest Designer. It made me realize that God allowed science to discover different facts not to be amazed by science but to prove that everything written in the Bible is true. Even before science discovered different principles, God has created them already.
God is just amazing. Now, I ask myself, what makes it so difficult to trust God when wherever I turn my eyes, all I can see are His good works?
I watched the movie, “Les Miserables” tonight. I was actually moved by the movie. I didn’t have a clue what the movie is all about. It was a story of a man who was treated with grace and was changed because of it. He turned his hatred by choosing to love. I like the last part when he said something like loving another person is seeing the face of God. That’s what God wants from all of us, a relationship, for us to love Him back as He manifested His love through Jesus Christ.
My quiet time with the Lord for the past 2 weeks haven’t really been consistent and well spent. And I miss hearing God when I don’t spend time with Him. A relationship is never one way. Both have to make time and I didn’t. But God is always there waiting. I’m grateful. Hopefully, I could really spend more time with the Lord in the coming days. I miss my quality time with God. I miss the intimacy.
