When things get tough

I can’t felt but feeling that time moves real fast around me. There were times that I wanted to work real fast but things are not according to my schedule and when things flies in real fast I wished hard for a breather and to look forward a break from all these hectic works.

There are many things clouding my mind and yet I feel that i am not doing a good job in every aspect. Lots of things just piled up on the plate and I wondered will I ever finished the pile?

I pray Lord that you grant me the strength to go through this. I am glad that God you have enabled Keegan to go though and I am sure You will too do the same for me 🙂

The Answers
READ: 1 John 3:1-9

Beloved, now we are children of God. —1 John 3:2

The story is told that the philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer (1788–1860) was sauntering through Berlin’s famous Tiergarden one day, mentally probing the questions of origin and destiny that had been constantly perplexing him: Who am I? Where am I going?

A park-keeper, closely observing the shabbily dressed philosopher as he walked slowly with head bowed, suspected that Schopenhauer was a tramp. So he walked up to the philosopher and demanded, “Who are you? Where are you going?” With a pained expression, Schopenhauer replied, “I don’t know. I wish somebody could tell me.”

Are you ever perplexed by those same questions? Who am I? Where am I going? What a comfort it is to have God’s authoritative answers in the Bible. Who are we? In 1 John 3, John calls his readers “children of God” (v.2). We become His children by receiving Jesus as our Savior from sin (John 1:12). And where are we going? John 14:1-6 tells us that one day He will receive us into a home He is preparing in heaven.

Our Maker is not only the Author of science and history, but He writes the story of every member of Adam’s family—yours and mine. We can trust His answers. — Vernon C. Grounds

Open my ears, that I may hear
Voices of truth Thou sendest clear;
And while the wave-notes fall on my ear,
Everything false will disappear. —Scott

When you know Jesus, you know who you are and where you’re going.
