Oh! Fell down my knees 'cause my bones were not strong! Face of mine kissed the dirt. T'was like when you are showing your true account as Christ's servant and friend.
Walking along the forest, watched by perilous eyes. So be very precautious of your every move to avoid committing mistakes. For once you did, they will shower you with judgment and will pin you down the ground.
Walking with a chain on the heel, oh so heavy that one could not carry! T’was like when you are walking with Christ’ teaching. Why living this life is not easy? But in times of difficulty, why is He the one that man is turning to? Why is Christ the only man’s best friend then? Where has all the man’s company left? Why walking with a chain on the heel became so light but still man doesn’t see nor feel that Christ is the one who carries him along the way?
Teaching His words is not that easy. But it is my responsibility to teach it correctly. But teaching and living in the secular world is a bit of pressure. Many will wait and set bait for me to fall! There were those who keep blocking my way to do the ministry that God is calling me to. They’re using my flaws to stop me. They even threatened me to tell it to the one who’s above me to stop me from going to church and to do my ministry. I know that the enemy is the one behind it. He uses them to stop me and also giving me a guilty feeling and igniting me to increase my flaws.
But why do I allow them? Though I cannot correct them because their eyes were not open to full understanding that what they’re doing an enemy’s scheme, I have to stay quiet. Patience must flow within me. But many time I failed to let the patience take control. I failed! I failed many times! I know I failed.
Yes I have this failure but that doesn’t mean I have to allow myself to be idle and do nothing. Just letting myself to be down the slope of this struggle? No! I must not stop. I have to proceed and pass this trial even if it seemed to be a longer road to reach the goal. I need to go to the next step. I have to! If I need to go jump over a hill so be it!
Prayer, strength, boldness, confidence, faith, joy, patience, peace and encouragement are the things that’ll spice up what I am doing. So even if I stop for a period of time, I must not allow myself to get stocked, I have to go to the next step because after all of this I know that this labor is not in vain to God.
