Knowing God Through Love


Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.

He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.

In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

1 John 4: 7 - 11 NKJV

When Times Get Too Tough‏!



When Times Get Too Tough‏! 


This Is My Life  
Going around and being drifted by the waves of this world; getting distracted by its worries and loaded with its burdens.  

From this, my soul gets disoriented. It goes here and there losing the purpose of focusing on Him. 

O My Lord, quiet my soul. Tell it to be still. When times get too tough, I want to listen to the spirit of yours. 

My soul is rising against me O My Lord. You have seen how much I long for you; I long for Your presence, but my soul is rising against me like a roaring sea. I'm trying to quiet it down so I can hear You, but the world is turning it against me. Be still my soul, and submit to your creator; enjoy His presence.

Temptations and afflictions, even when numerous and hard, is your way to perfection, and are not a cause for perishment.  

St. Augustine
