"Cuando la voluntad del dios cruza la voluntad del hombre, alguien tiene que morir."
"When the will of God crosses the will of man, somebody has to die."
Life requires countless "Little Deaths" occassions when we are given the chance to say "NO" to self and "YES" to God. The apostle Paul said, "For continually, while still alive, we are being surrendered in the the hands of death, for Jesus' sake...." It is not that everything that has anything to do with ourselves is in itself wicked and desrving death. It did not mean that when Jesus said, "Not my will...." there could have been even the smallest part of His will that was wicked. It was a choice to lay down everything. The good He had done and the good He might do if he was permitted to live, for the love of God. The same choice is offered to us. Little death have to be died just as great ones do. Every reminder that aroused a longing had to be offered up. There is a big however...it is this: we are not meant to die merely in order to be dead. God could not want that for the creatures to whom He has given the breath of life. We die in order to live.
Just like what has been said to me by my spiritual brother that if I felt being hurt and offended everytime he rebuked me, there is something in me that has and needed to die which before I cannot comprehend... "something in me that needed to die" it puzzled me way back then and made even even think about it... "Sin", I guess it needed to die in order for me to live the life God wanted me to have... I always cried out to God that I really, really wanted to live life to give glory in Him and what hinders me is my pride... the struggle inside of me is so intense and that there are times that I wanted to give up and just to continue walking but that is not God wants me to have.... and now I came to realized it all....
A Seed falls into the dark earth and dies... out of its death comes multiplied life..
It takes faith to believe this, as it takes faith for a farmer to plant a seed. It takes faith to live by it, faith to act on it, faith to keep looking at the joyful end of it all. A failure of faith here leads certainly to resentment and then to depression. the destruction will go on an on...
Let me shine Oh Lord,
Let me Shine,
Give me Light Oh Lord,
Let me light,
The darkness Sky
It feels so light
It's cold up there
Without your light
So let me die
That You may live
A sudden death
A life to lead.....

If you never felt pain,
Then how would you know that I'M A HEALER?
If you never went through difficulties,
How would you know that I'M A DELIVERER?
If you never had a trial,
How would you call yourself an OVERCOMER?
If you never made sadness,
How would you know that I'M A COMFORTER?
If you never made mistakes,
How would you know that I'M FORGIVING?
If you knew all,
How would you know that I WILL ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS?
If you never were in trouble,
How would you know that I WILL COME TO RESCUE YOU?
If you never were broken,
Then how would you know that I CAN MAKE YOU WHOLE?
If you never had a problem,
How would you know that I CAN SOLVE THEM?
If you never went had any sufferings,
Then how would you know that JESUS WENT THROUGH?
If you never went through the fire?
Then how would you become PURE?
If I gave you all things,
How would you be able to APPRECIATE THEM?
If I never corrected you?
How would you know that I LOVE YOU?
If you all had power,
Then how would you learn to DEPEND ON ME?
If your life was perfect,
Then what would YOU NEED ME FOR?
Please forgive me for all of my doubting, forgive me for not trusting, forgive me for being a hard headed person forgive me if I kept on asking... I remembered when my spiritual brother told me that ...I am a person who has so many "Why's"... forgive me Lord... let me solely trust you, let me let you be God into my life..... you who created me and know's my destiny... please forgive me... I thank you so much for letting me realized it all...Oh my GOD, please be upon me.... this I pray in Jesus name... Amen
