“My heart is pathetically poor”

 

cross sins

There was a time i have been spiritually strong or rather blessed and full of consolations, that i thought i was a rock that couldn’t shake, and that i would overcome anything by praying, that i had what it takes and the right weapon to fight with

Those times i felt like i would be able to deal with every heartache, every downfall with prayer and that i would swallow it all in and cling to Christ.

Little did i know that someday i would experience so much dryness that prayer would feel like empty words being thrown into the sky one after another. and no matter how i searched deeper and deeper i would only feel more even lost and disconnected from God’s grace and presence

And for sometime i started to look elsewhere, to see if i could find answers in places i knew were the wrongest to find love, peace and the comfort i needed. Surrounding myself with material things didn’t help neither did looking for comfort in humanly love and affection

God is always near and close, and through dryness he teaches us to trust not based on the peace and consolations we get from him, but to love him for him and remember the poverty of our hearts, and know through absolute humility that we are weak, and pathetic and can’t do anything on our own.

To be able to pray and trust we need him, it all comes from his grace, the ability to resist from temptation, not to despair when we fall into great and repeated sins. Only his mercy saves us from sins and so there is no place for pride in spirituality because it all is his grace.

Day 2:” the 3 day quote challenge”

Quotes

Is the world calling us towards real and genuine contentment? is what its offering us sheer joy or a poisonous gift? is it calling us to look towards the big picture or is it blinding our eyes by material things?

Day by day they leave our souls restless and hungry for more.I know of no money that is much enough. I know of no power that is much enough. We always seek more…and more until it drives us crazy and we lose ourselves into looking for things that don’t even satisfy us.

As little sense as this may make to many, what is there to compare from the fulfillment we get from genuinely loving?  from serving compassionately and wholeheartedly? and for humbling ourselves because we recognize the fragility and vulnerability of human nature..and that we are not the ones in control but GOD is!

Day 1 : 3 day quotes challenge

One unique thing about Anne Frank is her super powers of faith and hope.She sees beyond immense suffering and see that there is more to that within humanity. It’s easy to give up on this world. Its easy to curse humanity but is everything going completely wrong? aren’t there  people, men and women who spend every single day struggling to make this place a better place?

In the darkest days of my being, and when i had almost completely given up on believing in people’s kindness and humanity God sent me angels. I saw strangers help me out, people who didn’t even know me but felt the need to lift me up. I spent a long time questioning their kindness and if they didn’t probably want to trap me,  if they didn’t want anything in return. or why they thought i deserved it .

The world is full of suffering, death, extreme poverty, violence and every possible thing that could make you give up. You may easily find living ridiculous but even when it seems like evil is winning darkness no matter how powerful will never overpower light, the love and greatness in people’s hearts remain.

” Even when it seems like evil is winning, darkness no matter how powerful will never overpower light, the love and greatness in people’s hearts remain.”
