Press on!

(Taken from:

Reading Ecclesiastes for the very first time. Apparently, I am attracted to Solomon's writing. Have to admit that reading the passage really search my heart. Currently in the state of fighting with my own self. The will & desires within me are so strong until the extend I wish to give up and lay back.

There is a voice within me telling me to go on, go on, and go on.. Suddenly, it reminds me of Job. A man whom when through many trials yet he was still able to say the word "Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked I will depart. The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; may the name of the LORD be praised."(Job 1:21). What was Job thinking back then? What was is motivation to cling on to God, though many things took place in his life?

Only one thing I can be certain of... God is a faithful God. He is a God that fulfill all His promises. No, not one is forfeited. Yes, though things are "not in place" in your eyes but be of good cheer for it is in place in God's eyes. As God said "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." (Jeremiah 29: 11), therefore, rejoice in your heart and serve Him with all your heart, knowing that He is in control of all things.
