Where does true happiness resides in?

(I kindly ask you to refrain from nasty comments. This is my personal view. I respect yours. Respect mine.)

Questioning my faith in Jesus-Christ, brought me tonight, alone, in my bedroom, sitting on the floor, pen and paper on a chair, Bible open beside me alongside a wonderful picture of Christ.

I decided to listen to Him with love casting aside the noise of the world, with an open heart to truths that I know would painfully show me where I was wrong.

How could living out the Gospel and pursuing a deeper relationship with Jesus-Christ change the world?

I asked Him to show me examples of His love renewing our own selves, our hateful hearts, our painful hearts, our cold hearts…

To my own astonishment, he opened my eyes, he opened my heart to His power of love.
A love, so unconditional, that gives us the means to be reborn anew: breathing testimonies of His resurrection and Holy Spirit.

You, who goes on living, thinking that God isn’t…
You, who lost faith along the road…
You, who is in search of a truly fulfilling life that will bring you to happiness…
Be still…

Jesus Christ is not a character in a fiction book. He was and He still is.
His apostles took the trouble to spread the message of his resurrection.
How many times in the world’s history was His message of love threatened to disappear, but yet has still reached our 21st century world?

Christians were killed in the process of testifying his resurrection in the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
At all points in the history of mankind, after Christ’s death until now, men and women alike were born anew in the Holy Spirit, living for love, with love, lighting the flame of eternal life in those who opened the heart to the truth that we are loved and cherished by God, our Father.

We are encouraged to believe that life is about satisfying our wants; indulging in every pleasure we can.

We are encouraged to pursue vain and ephemeral glory at the expense of our health, of our relationships even.

My personal view as a young adult is that I refuse to live in a worldly way.
Life has no meaning if it isn’t something other than pleasuring myself, than being able to succeed in being an exceptional woman to the eyes of this world.

I know deep down true happiness does not reside in the wisdom of the world.

Centuries have gone by, the same mistakes were made over and over again.

The only thing I trust wasn’t a mistake, was the love of Jesus-Christ, etched in hearts till now.

The joy that transfigures those who walk with Christ, never was seen on the face of someone who followed the common crowd culture of death and weakness.
The most beautiful of nature are found in the desert.

The most beautiful souls, the strongest ones of humanity, are those humble enough to acknowledge that  LIVING IS DYING TO SELF FOR THE GLORY OF GOD.

I WANT TO BE ONE OF THOSE SOULS. EVERYONE IS CALLED TO BE ONE OF THOSE SOULS.

DO YOU WANT TO BE ONE OF THOSE SOULS?

Do check out few of many lives that have been changed.
