180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 179

On the eve of a journey’s end! What an experience it has been.

My prayer is always for new experiences with Daddy. This year, I got so much more than I could share here.

God has been my peace, my friend, my shoulder to cry on and my shield.

He has corrected me, rerouted me, restored and elevated me.

If I’m not sure of anything else I can certainly say that he will never leave me. This year has taught me that he’s always near.

To my friend, my God, thank you for loving me and choosing me.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 174

I go to the Rock of my salvation. I go to the Stone that the builders rejected. I run to the Mountain, and the Mountain stands by me. When all around me is sinking sand, on Christ the solid rock I stand. When I need a shelter, when I need a friend, I go to the Rock.

I am honestly depressed due to my upcoming exams. But I keep going to the Rock. I have my doubts, but I’m laying them at Daddy’s feet.

I do this because I have an assurance. God is faithful. When I fail to be obedient or to communicate with him, he remains faithful to me. So I know that when I turn to him, he will direct my path.

He never wavers, falters, or fails. He is sure, secure, and loving. This is the God I serve… He’s not just a God, he’s also a father, a friend, a secret place, peace and protection. He’s the restorer of my joy!

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 117

Yesterday was a frustrating day πŸ˜₯

My assignment, which was due at 11:59pm last night, was looming closer. Every time I picked it up, I’d get a dull headache, worsened by the fact that I’d still feel tired no matter how much I slept.

I finally buckled down to really do it around 6pm.

By 8pm, I was still on the introduction. πŸ˜”

By 10pm, I was writing the key aspects needed for my analysis. (My sister typed them up for me πŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ, may God bless her).

By 11pm, I was putting together the typed work as I had written them in parts and given to my sis. So I was reading, editing, and filling info that I had left out. Then I started writing the analysis and stopped at 11:47pm to convert it to pdf and upload it before 11:59pm.

I can’t say I’m pleased with that I did. But I’m grateful that it’s done. I felt like giving up, especially when I was 10pm and I didn’t start the analysis as yet. I wanted to jump into bed, cover my head, and not submit anything. It was really frustrating 😭.

But I ignored the urge to give up, I ignored my feeling of frustration and pressed on. My sister was already typing up the notes for me. If I gave up then I’d be wasting her time and spitting on the sacrifice she was making for me, and I didn’t think that would be fair. My mom was routing for me and checked in every now and then. A friend of mine checked in every four hours to encourage me. If I gave up, I would feel badly for letting them down so I forced myself to do my best.

I boast in God for surrounding me with people who are so supportive. I know that if it were not for their support, I would have given up and accepted an F. Daddy knew that I’d get to this point where my faith just wasn’t strong enough, so he sent help to keep me walking.

There are many people in this world who are hurting now. I serve the only God who cares about the pain you are feeling.

He is touched by (concerned about, connected to) the feelings of our infirmities (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual). Hebrews 4:15.

He cares.

He wants to do something about it.

He promised to be with you through it. Isaiah 43:2.

He cares about how you’re hurting, and he wants to heal you.

Watch “A Friend in Need is a Friend​ Indeed” on YouTube

Who do you call friend? What does the word ‘Friend’ mean to you? How do you know who are your true friends?  

I speak about who is a friend in this video, based on the popular saying, “a friend in need is a friend indeed”.  Reference verse is taken from Proverbs 17:17.  Watch this video to learn more and subscribe to my channel.

Watch “Seeking God before Starting Friendships” on YouTube

Some times we feel capable of making simple (or what seems simple to us) decisions. We start friendships so easily and think nothing is wrong because God wants us to love everyone. But still, God wants us to seek him about every decision. Especially decisions about friendships. If you’re about to start a friendship, watch this video. Read Joshua 9.
