Come and Seek the Lord

I try to post once a week given the time, or when I feel that there is a very important topic that I need to write about and I don't want to forget to share it through my writing.

A special sister-in-Christ comes to mind right now [please check out her site and please pray for her and her family]. As I lifted her up in prayers, I had this urge to post about how each of us are going through different trials of life. There are so many roads that are uncertain. Sometimes, we are trapped and we can't either go back or move forward. Sometimes, the roads are too confusing. There are so many unfamiliar roads that we are just totally lost right away and just don't know what to do...

But glory to God! Because of Him, we can just look up and ask Him for His guidance and strength as we travel on roads that lead to mountains of trials. He is the One Who never leaves us nor forsake us. Jesus said, "I have told you all this so that you may have peace in Me. Here on earth, you will have many trials and sorrows, but take heart because I have overcome the world!" [John 16:33]. What a beautiful promise of how the Lord never leaves us, especially when we are going through trials.

I would like to request each and everyone of you, brothers and sisters in Christ, to pray for each other. We need that kind of encouragement. We might not know each other personally, but thanks be to God, we are One in Spirit!

For those of you hurting out there, my prayers go out to you. For you, dear sister-in-Christ, I want to share with you this song I had written on June 19, 2003:

Come and Seek the Lord

No matter how tough the trials that come your way
No matter how much they break your heart today
Fill your heart instead with joy
Knowing Jesus is there for us all

Come and seek the Lord [3x]
For He had overcome the world

No matter how much pain and suffering
No matter how heavy the burden they bring
Trust in the Lord it'll be okay
For He will show us the way


  1. You are such an encouragement and I deeply thank you for this posting and your heartfelt prayers. You certainly are right, we are all in this life together and my prayers will be said for you and for all. Despite the trials I go through, I know that He is with me and my faith is strong and steadfast. I am an intercessor and a prayer warrior for anyone that needs a listening ear and prayer, and you are right, this entire world needs to pray for one another. Again, I say thank you my friend, for your caring heart, concern, encouragement and prayers.

    Your sister-in-Christ,

  2. To Him be the glory...You hit it right on the spot--that's what we all, Christian followers should be doing---to bend our knees and pray. It's so easy to be distracted with the cares in this world. But we have a great Intercessor Himself, Who is the greatest example we can look up to....Thank you for your prayers. Thank you also for visiting my site. I appreciate all your comments. God bless.

The Attacker (5/15/09)

The sun was just peeking from the Eastern skies. Ephesians 6:12 [37 kb]

Out in the prison’s yard, some huge Sheriff’s buses were illuminated by the soft glow coming from the lights all over from the tall lamp posts. Their engines were turned on, warming up, before the buses would take the inmates to the different courts where they would have their trials.

Orange-uniformed men were lined up in pairs, joined together with handcuffs and chained, forming a long line. They already had their breakfast and had their morning medications prior to going to courts. Some were fidgeting, as they waited to board those buses.

All of a sudden, all hell broke loose! Two men were engaged in a fight, using weapons they made secretly for a while. Deputies called for help on the radio, both for custody back-up and medical staff, as well.

When the air was cleared and the other inmates were secured, one man was down on the floor. He sustained multiple gashes but two of them were deep. One cut was vertically etched from his left ear going down to the jaw line. The other dangerous cut was horizontal on his left neck, close to the jugular vein. Pool of blood dripped all over the floor. Holding his bleeding neck, he was pointing at the other inmate few feet away, being guarded by the other deputies.

The other man being accused was not hurt. There were no lacerations nor any other signs of trauma. He was obviously very agitated as he was being questioned by those deputies, while the medical staff started treating the other man on the floor. They cleaned the wounds and controlled the bleeding. That man was sent to the nearby hospital.

When the investigation was finalized, it turned out to be that the “downed man who was accusing the other inmate” was the attacker and the other one who didn’t have injury was the one attacked. The deputies found out that it was the second attempt to attack the unhurt man. Both attacks on him failed. He was well-prepared after the first attempt on him, that when the second attempt was done, he was able to defend himseld and ended up injuring his attacker severely.

[Source: Life Application Bible]:

We also have an “accuser of the brethren.” Satan and his army of demons are the enemies of God and of everything good.

“Because God’s children are human beings – made of flesh and blood – Jesus also became flesh and blood by being born in human form. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the Devil, who had the power of death.” –Hebrews 2:14

Because of what Jesus had done [dying on the cross], we, who live in constant fear of death shouldn’t be afraid anymore. Jesus had freed us from that fear so we can live for Him. When we belong to God, we know that death is only the portal that leads into “eternal life”. [“Thank You Lord!].

Paul warned us, too that we also battle against the evil forces of Satan, who is a vicious fighter. But to be able to withstand their attacks, we must depend on God’s strength and use every piece of His armor. We face an army whose goal is to defeat Christ’s church. When we believe in Christ, they become our enemies. They will try any device to turn us away from the Lord.

Fear not! For God has provided His supernatural power to defeat Satan and his army, through His Holy Spirit within us. So, arm yourselves with God’s armor.

Let us be strong in the Lord's mighty power. Let's put on His whole armor to resist the enemy's attacks: put on the sturdy belt of truth and the body armor of God's righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News, so that we are well-prepared. We will need faith in every battle as our shield to stop the fiery arrows aimed by Satan and his army. Let us put on salvation as our helmet, not forgetting the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. Let's pray at all times, on every occasion in the power of the Holy Spirit. We must stay alert and be persistent in our prayers for all Christians everywhere. [Ephesians 6:10-18].
