*Disclaimer : The following is not suitable for those who are intolerant to spiritual and bible-related matters. My faith is an integral part of me and since this blog is a reflection of my thoughts and evolution in life, it's natural that I post on it. Reader discretion is advised ;).
Intellectual debate or Job-like personal circumstances can devastate believers who have never explored the wilderness beyond easy, five-step answers. Paradox beckons us into Mystery, and offers a wholesome reminder that God is infinitely greater than our ideas about God.
- Richard P. Hansen
The Bible doesn't make any rational sense...
I believe unseen things and they are more important than seen things.
I conquer by yielding.
I find rest under a yoke.
I am saved for eternity by nothing that I do and by the simplest faith.
I reign by serving.
I find riches when I am poor in spirit and when I give beyond my means.
I forgive because I am forgiven and to be forgiven.
I am made content through sufferings.
I am made great by becoming small.
I become wise by being fools for Christ's sake.
I am made free by becoming bondservants.
I honor myself by honoring God and other's first.
I love myself by loving God and other's first.
I seek first an invisible kingdom.
I am loved, and I love, by choice, not emotions.
I am exalted when I am humble.
I gain strength when I am weak.
I triumph through defeat.
I find victory by glorying in my infirmities.
I live by daily dying.
I am first by putting myself last
I am most satisfied when God is most glorified.
Real riches have nothing to do with what I own.
Real wisdom has nothing to do with what I know.
Real salvation has nothing to do with what I do.
Real freedom has nothing to do with what I choose.
Real glory has nothing to do with how others see me.
Real food has nothing to do with what I eat or drink.
Real value has nothing to do with my accomplishments.
Real beauty has nothing to do with what I see.
Real strength has nothing to do with what I can bear.
Real pleasure has nothing to do with me.
Real love has nothing to do with what I feel.
Real power has nothing to do with what I control.
And that is why I believe.
