GOD'S HEADLINE
by: Gloria Tiquia

If we look at everyday headlines and top stories, majority of the time, we read only bad news. It seems like the more controversies there are, the more we want to talk about them. It’s sad that there are even people who would do something gruesome just to have that brief moment of fame or spotlight- whatever. Then there are those missionaries who are risking their lives in remote areas of the world bringing the Gospel of Christ who never make the news.

Maybe you are one of those people sacrificing your time, energy, resources and health to serve others. You’ve done almost everything you can do yet nobody appreciates what you’re doing. As a human being, you deserve that “pat on your shoulder”, a simple word of thanks to keep you going, even an earthly reward. At the end of the day, you are frequently exhausted and emotionally drained wondering at times, “Is it all worth it?” There will be times when you just want to throw the towel and start to question, “What is wrong with the rest of the world?” You may even be wondering, “Why can’t I seem to get the message across? Is something wrong with me?”

As Ambassadors for Christ, we need to be reminded that it’s all about Him and not about us. Everything we do, we do it for love. I know that as a Christian, I have my own set of struggles in my spiritual walk, so everyday, I must remember to put God first as commanded in Matthew 6:33. As I turn to the Word of God and pray for guidance I gain more strength and endurance, being reminded of the hope that God has set for me for the furtherance of His Kingdom.

When things may not go your way and people don’t seem to understand your good intentions and deeds out of love, continue loving anyway. You may not make the top stories or headline, but remember you are always in God’s headline written in His Book of Life. Oh, what a hope we have in Christ! Be strong in your faith and continue on. Nothing is ever wasted if we do it for God.

“ Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary.” (Galatians 6:9)


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Having a brother, who ministers to international students, on college campuses, I can remember him having such doubts and concerns. It is never easy, and often discouraging, but he took it to the Lord and realized while, one plants, the other sows, thus, making him content. Thank you for sharing this, it was such an encouragement!! - Nancy

Good advice in what you have wrote. It is good to know, though, that God keeps a record of what we have done for him. He has said, "Your labor has not been in vain". I appreciate you writing this.
