Overcoming

Overcoming echoes to my soul for months. Year 2006 was a roller coaster of my spiritual level. The passion to write for the Glory of God, was been set aside. I was been too busy with my own worldly affairs. And my soul that burns on fire with the Love of God, suffers and pushes me to overcome!

Now, I'm taking the steps for this overcoming drives. One of my overcoming drive is to be back on regular writing. Writing not for profession. Writing not for my glory. Just simply writing. Writing my everyday spiritual walk. Writing for everyday devotion.

I still remember that this writing devotion started with those little diaries during my childhood days. Those diaries became reflections. Those reflections became my way of talking to God. I never realized then, how important this hobbit was. I still can remember in one of my reflections, I wrote that I may have lots of this reflections in the future. Because it really made me feel so good. Perhaps God is the only friend to talk and tell my deepest during those time.

It seemed decades had past. Too many things was been recorded unto the mankind history. Me too, seemed like a water that was been mixed to the river flow of life. Not until one day, God carried me back to His arms, and started to walk by faith, and follow the holiness path. Though the passion to write was still here.

The passion to write and my faith, meet well. I able to convinced myself that writing for profession is not for me. I became satisfied to write just for God's glory on the level of my capacity. But this river flow of life, tried to bring me again to another era. When I stopped writing with my faith, it seemed that my faith's burning is also vanishing.

And my soul was been so alarmed with that dilemma. Overcome! Overcome! The messages unto the Seven Churches found on the Book of Revelation echoes to my heart, unto my ears. And now, I am standing and moving forward to my faith, I need back regular scripture reading and reflection, journal them, share them, and now I know that my spiritual health will be back again.

Regular scripture reading and keeping a journal is really a must for a growing Christian like me. So is praying, and living like a human Bible. And this is my way of overcoming. And about my passion to write, I let it be for the glory of God.

I can feel your passion and love in this piece. I found some grammar issues, but this was definitely a good read!

This was a great reflection of a singular passion. Noticed a typo how important this hobbit was
;) didn't think that a hobbit was involved!
Simple and well-shared!
