Life is like a Ferris wheel. Sometimes we are at the top, sometimes were at the bottom. Rocky Balboa reminds us what should we do when we are at the bottom part of our life.
“When things got hard, you started looking for something to blame. Like a Big Shadow. Let me tell you something you already know. The worlds aren’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it…
You’ve gotta hit as hard as life. It isn’t about how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much can you take and keep moving forward? That’s how winning is done.
If you know what you’re worth,Go out and Get What You’re Worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits. And not pointing fingers saying you aren’t where you wanna be because of him or her or anybody. Cowards do that and that Ain’t you. You’re better than that.”
Let’s live a life full of hope and determination!
To me defeat in anything is merely temporary…
Defeat simply tells me that something is wrong in my doing; It is a path Leading to success and truth
Defeat is our stepping stone to growth and development.
Here is a screen capture of the movie Avengers.
All of the superheroes stood up to Loki with armor or strength or powers or arms. But this man stood with his words.
Everyone of us has our own stand for what we believe in. But I highly suggests that God’s word is suitable for all the situations in our life. Why?
1. It is alive and active (Hebrews 4:12)
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
It is timely.
It doesn’t expire.
It pierces through our hearts.
2. It is Useful for TEACHING, REBUKING, CORRECTING and TRAINING in RIGHTEOUSNESS. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
it is useful for everyone.
it helps us live in a godly lives.
It creates a big effect on our attitude.
Even we are not physically strong like the avengers , yet we can still fight without using violence because of God’s words.
I’m worn out for today. And I still have a lot to do tomorrow. But before that, I want to thank God through His grace because I can come to Him and receive His power anytime. My source of power is limitless because It is God Himself.
Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
He is indeed an all-powerful loving God!
Praises and Glory be to him!
Let’s rejoice in every circumstances of our life!
I want to encourage Everyone by this verse in Hebrews 10:25 :
not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
We had different seasons in life. Yet, Let us not give up on meeting each other. Discipleship is every season.
Natalie was a former atheist who encountered Jesus with the help of persistent Christian friends who didn’t give up meeting with her and answering her questions at a time when she wanted nothing to do with the church.
Watch her story:
A while ago, I felt tired. Maybe because of my whole day class. But other than that, I think it was when I rode the jeep. It feels like I inhaled all the bad gasses surrounding that vehicle. But that’s not my point today. I just felt like sharing how smoke that comes from vehicles affects our lungs and minds.
