Gazing Up

On my journey, I stopped by the woods to ask myself why do I need to cross the wilderness in the dusk? And why am I blindfolded unable to see the path to where I am going. I felt blind and was trapped on my endless journey.

I cried and I shout out loud why do I face the road to confusion, and why am I faced with so many down fall. Why am I the weaker bone?! All I want is to see the light but it dims and it hid itself from me.

I drop faced down on the dirt crying like a child, I weep, I sobbed and I cannot control myself to burst into mixed anger and sorrow. Suddenly, I heard a voice from nowhere. It called me. Upon hearing the voice from the wind, I stopped my sobs and tried to look around. But all I could see were the silhouetted background and the waters of the wild. I ask the wind where does this voice from, and soon the streak of light strike before me. I gazed up and saw something that blazes like the sun. "This is just the picture of your life...." It said. "Fear not, I am with you. I will never leave you." I saw a hand coming from the light, it held out to me. I grasp it.

"I will put my hope in You."I said."Since, I cannot go anywhere but to run back to You." While saying this, I realized that it was God. It was my Father whom I have run away from.

"Once again, you took My hand." He said. "But child, your trials never ended till the very last day of your life! But as I have promised, I will never leave you."

Then the light faded and I thought that it was just a vision. I looked at my right and saw a raging river and a dinghy floating there. 'It's the only way out!' I got up on my feet and took the dinghy. I fought the raging currrent of the river. 'I have to cross the river now'.

I stopped my journey when I viewed a nearby bank. I paddled hard to reach the bank and there I lie down coughing and panting. I tried to stand up but my feet got stuck on the thistles. I tried to pull one of my legs but it got scraped and was bleeding badly. I used my hands to freed my legs. It hurted. I felt sharp pain. But I overcome it. Slowly I tried to stood up. My legs were shaking but they were firm as I stood. I smiled. I felt better. I searched for a shelter, there I saw a house over the mountain. I nod and told myself that every sacrifice has a fruitful reward. 'GO!' I told myself.

My journey will never end, even my adventures! My down fall and my rise too will never end. The race for ONE LOVE and ONE FAITH will never end up until I am finished. So I ran as fast as I could to win the race, which is the race for my faith and for the love of God. Now I've learned something from this journey of life.... THAT LIFE HAS TO GO ON! When I fall, I don't have to call upon my fellow brothers everytime to help me stand, but rather help myself to STAND FIRM in every situation. And all the while I am running on this race,I must not look back on where I came from or even looked on the people beside me. But to look forward and focus! Because this race is not for coward to win but to those who'll survive the race. And in the end, judgement is upon me on how I run this race.

Even this time, I am still running the race. I am still journeying and facing many mountain slopes and deserts. Too many battle within me but the Lord is on me. He will never leave me and all I have to do is to believe, put my hope and have faith on Him! Just looked at Him and obey Him. To know Him more is to seek Him more and to be with Him in the end

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