Found In The Middle

When I woke up this morning and preparing myself for my job interview. I ask God, through my thoughts, if this job is really for me. I ask If He had a better plan for my future. I know I wont get an answer immediately. It takes a while. It's a process. It should start in me.

Then I evaluate myself for the past few months about things that I did and accomplished, if any. I always found myself in the middle. You know, I always play safe in everything that I do, always making sure that I am pleasing in the sight of others. But what about God? Did I please Him with what I am doing? I guess not. Maybe thats the reason why I am suffering and encountering problems upon problems because I am always in the middle. I never step out of my comfort zone. I never came out according to what God wants me to be. I am never that strong. Never! Not until now.

Today, I am praying for peace of mind and serenity of my heart. Lord, give me the strength that I need for me to move on with life. Give me more reason to live and never stop granting me the desire to continue loving you in every way I can. I am a sinner and I accepted it. I also believed that I am forgiven and I'm claiming it. I can never do it without you and you are the source of life and of love. I offer my life unto you as long as I live. I pray in Jesus name. Amen.

-----------------------------------------------

Before I was just nothing
Roaming around like waiting for something

Until you formed my inmost being
There it began what I call living

Somewhere between the black and white
Somewhere between the darkness and light
In between the old and new
Somewhere in the middle you found me

Its amazing that you lavish me with such extravagant love
You accepted me even when I'm mad
You embrace me with your grace even if you are covered with such glory
Even if somewhere in the middle you found me

I keep on asking, "Do I really deserve such mercy?"
I am nothing and you are everything
You carry me  when storm surrounds me
You help when the warrior inside me is weary
Even if somewhere in the middle you found me


Somewhere between the boat and the smashing waves
Somewhere between the highs and lows
In between the whispers and the blows
Somewhere in the middle you found me

Lord I never cease to praise you
I always take refuge in you
It doesnt really matter even if you caught me in the middle
Coz I know you're the God who always cares

  2. How cool it is that I read blog entries like this. Inspired by God, written by a believer. I would like to share one verse that has been shared to me by one of my co-worker. When I received this message, I lived by it.

    "..Be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded." 2 Chronicles 15:7 NIV

  17. During the days of Jesus' life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission. Heb 5:7

    Ito ang pinaghuhugutan ko ng lakas pag prayer ang paguusapan.Pagdesperate tayo na makuha ang isang bagay we are willing to do anything lalo na sa prayer natin. May mga bagay na alam mong imposible pero posible kung naniniwala ka.
