I’m reminding my soul there is restoration, confirmation and strength coming my way … if I don’t give up.

“And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.” 1 Peter 5:10 (ESV)

Help me finish well what you have called me to do in this life Oh Lord. I’m pressing on. I believe this is all in preparation for eternity.

John 15:7, “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.” (NIV)

Acts 20:24, ”However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me — the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.“ (NIV)

I am pressing on.

Sharing a part of a book I’m reading, I came across this gem when I went to a bookstore Warehouse Sale. Believing it’s just some book only a few would take a chance on buying because it was cheaply priced at P50 compared to other books on sale. I never thought that I’d find words to live by and thoughts of the author/s that made me say “I could not agree more”.

This particular excerpt struck me the most (though I haven’t finished the book yet) 😉 I hope you too could relate to it.

Real love- whether romantic love, close friendship, or a family relationship-happens long after (love) at first sight. It shows up as people get to know each other more deeply and often they work through tough things together. Real love in relationships isn’t a magic act- it’s a journey.

When people say, “It was love at first sight.” what they really mean is “I was attracted to that person the first time I saw them.” There is nothing wrong with being infatuated with someone at the start of a relationship. The real question, however, is, do you have a love that is growing stronger and deeper everyday?

I don’t believe in Love at first sight; I believe in Love at LAST sight. Each of our relationships has to have the potential to be better the next time we’re together than it was the previous time so that the last time we see each other we’re closer than ever before.

haze’ 30-day challenge “DONT BE LATE”

Life seems a bit ho-hum these past few months. This morning I decided to give myself a challenge every month, just to get me back on track. Hopefully after every 30-day challenge I’ll get used to the discipline that the challenge taught me. So for this month I decided to challenge myself to take on something that I’ve been battling with for so long…BEING LATE.

This is my challenge for December 2012.

How about you? Do you have “late problems” too? Are you up for this challenge? Join me as I log in here the date and time as I come in for work starting on Monday (December 3) and count the days that I’ll be successful with not being late.
