I appreciate this book a lot. Not my usual devotional book, but I must say this one has deeper concepts on a lot of spiritual life topics/events that really punches one squarely in the stomach. Thank you @leevillareal for this book. And I am more thankful for our super friendship @dhang @sess @tin #maginstagramdinkayoha
Tis a pain to see how some have chosen the wayward path
but who am I to judge?
I am also a sinner. I have my faults, my doubts and fears… flaws that this world created.
Yet, knowing the truth and being constantly reminded of God’s great love (in many ways He only know best), I somehow experience empathy. Because I know Someone up above is hurting each time we “fall”.
I’ve learned to hide myself away
where no one else can see
pretending I am someone else
never showing me
Like an actor on the stage
each day I play a role
never letting anyone
ever gain control
Never letting anyone
get close enough to see
hiding there behind a mask
there is another me
-an actor of life :’
Lord my God,
You know how much weaker I am now
and the circumstances around me may keep on pushing me deeper.
You see my faults and my doubts
and the rest of my defenses fail.
And I am ashamed to lift my face up to You
because I am filled with guilt and defeat.
How I hate myself today
for ruining what You have created in me.
But oh, Lord God, You know my everything
and I’m still holding on…
…holding on to Your capable hands
as I await Your most precious rescue.
