Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitary


 

 

 

\

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.- Colossians 3:15-17

My Solitude with Christ 

Imagining  myself in the place of Jesus, lying there in the house where I feel safe, comforted, loved and accepted. Picturing  how much harder the decision to leave would have been if Jesus had ignored that restless  so during my solitude I usually “Get up and go out or lock my room to pray fervently  ”  and in the midst of my solitude, God is calling.

” Today, I’m not anti-social.  I’m just enjoying my solitude.”

Knowing Suffering Can Be Knowing Truth


 

In my life I have found one simple thing that rings true. Without pain and suffering there is no growth. You cannot help others if you’ve never experienced anything yourself. This is why Jesus wandered  in the desert to be tested. Why did He die a horrible painful death? It was to show us the truth. Like so many of you, I have been searching for the truth. Rummaging through the rubble of contradiction and beneath the ruins of my own experiences. I was tossed about on the raging sea of confusion and turmoil for so very long. What is the truth? The TRUTH is…  you can’t get to or appreciate the good times without going through the bad. If you’d never been through trials that seemed to beat you down repeatedly how can you truly say you understand someone else’s situation? How would you be able to give them Christ‘s message? The bottom line is, You couldn’t!
